MARKETS.

HOB A ter TOWN MARKETS, NOVEMBER 12.

We have no change of any importance to notice in the markets. Wheat is quoted at from 3s Gd to 3s 9d. Patatos are a nominal price, and will not realise 10s a ton after paying freight from Brown's River.

Fine Hour at the mills, £0 to £9 10s.

SYDNEY MARKETS, OcroaEa 2C.

The ronrkcts have been remarkably quiet through- out the week, and the transactions but few. The cargo of wheat, ex Calypso, biought 4s per bushel ; in flour lhere is no alteiation. A lot of Ilennessy's brandy realized 5s 9d per gallon- In rum there is nothing to report ; 100 cases gin sold for 17s. Buss's tile -(lie importation ex Garland Grove, sold at former rates Salt, 100 tons brought .£5 5s per ton Sugar-about 70 tons Manillu sold to the trade at £22 10s and ?23.

Tea-hyson skin, Ibis market is quiet and nothing doing. Soft goods-well assorted invoices are realis- ing good advances ; in other articles there is nothing calling for comment.

JOHN* JOHNSON, Broker. Albion House, Miller's Point.

The Wool Market-Skin wool is the principal de- scription that has been offered for sale, which, being of good colour, fetched Is Id to Is 2d readily. Some new wool has also come to maikct, and was well got up, but no sales effected, on account of its belonging to parties who consign home on their own account. A few huies of unwashed were sold at auction at 7J.il, but were not very heavy in the grease. The shearing has been interrupted by the late rains, but again resumed with every appearance of a good clip. The Jaigc sales of wool commence in London on the 15th July, and the expectation was, that the prices would be main-

tained.

Wheat.- Great dulness prevails, and the cargo of the Calypso has added to out previous heavy stock. The Martha is expected daily from Launceston with a cargo of wheat ; but as she comes to a house in the trade her cargo »ill not ailed the current rules; 3s 6d may be quoted us the price for best, samples.

Flour -The millers have reduced their prices gene- rally to £9 10s per ion, cash. We do not recollect such a perfect stagnation in this article as appears lit

present.

Bread.--The 2!b loaf is now generally sold for 2|d ; but there is still much of un inferior quality in the city.

Maize.-There is a very large quantity of maize at present in the matket, for which the growers hate ob- tained from lOJd to Is Id per bushel, according to quality ; the retail prices arc from Is 2d to Is 6d per bushel. The general price is Is 3d per bushel.

Oats arc neither plentiful nor much in demand, the retail price 2s Gd per bushel ; the wholesale dealers giving about 2s per bushel.

Barley.-There is hut little iii the market; the wholesale price is from 2s to 2s 3d ; the retailers arc charging from 2s 4d to 2s 9d per bushel.

Horses.-Good strong coach, gig, and cart horses are inquired for by the dealers, but the prices thev offer not being more than from £7 to £9 per head, there is no encouragement fur the owueis of this de- scription of stock to bring it to market, and such asare compelled to sell must make up their minds to sacrifice, as the dealers are not at all inclined to compete or make an advance on the prices which have tor some . ccks been obtained. On Tuesday last, fifty-one head of stock horses, mares, and foals were sold at the pound ; the animals were in general in indifTi rent con- dition ; the prices ranged from 70s to 180s per head, the fools being given in willi the mates ¡n the lot. The average price of the whole was about £5 5s per head.

Butchers' Meat continues of good quality at last week's prices, vi« , wholesale, beef and mutton, ¿d to }d per lb ; «cal and pork, 3d to 3Jd per lb. The re tail prices are, beef and mutton, Id to I id per lb; veal and pork, 4d to 5d per lb ; neals' tongues, Is each ; suet, 3d to 3jd per lb.

Patatos are still plentiful, but the demand is as yet limited, in consequence of the cheapness of other sorts of food, rather than the largeness of the supply. The wholesale prices arc. Van Diemen's Land potitos. £3 to £3 10s per ton ; Broulee do, 50s to 55s per ton ; Jeringong do, 45s to 50s per ton. The retail prices range from 2s 9d to 5s per cwt.

limber.-There is at present a large supply of almost every description of timber in the market ; the wholesale prices aie from 5s 3d lo 6s Cd per 100 feet ; assoi ted timber is from 7s 3d to 7s 8d per 1(10 feet; buildings are supplied throughout nt from 6s-9d to 7s 3d per 100 feet; Bellingham cedar, in log. is from 9s to 12s per 100 feet, and in demand ; cedar inch boards are from 2d to 2¿d per foot ; shingles, 6s di to 8s per 1000; and laths fioin 5s to 6s per IW0-Sydney
