Wheat Market-The supply for this market continues to be extremely limited, in consequence of the badness of the roads, and the unsettled state of the weather. There is a large quantity of wheat in the neighbourhood of Windsor, which, unless immediately brought to market, will1 be completely de- stroyed by weevil. The millers arc giving from 6s. to 7s. per

bushel for good samples.

Flour Market.-The arrival of ships from Launceston with wheat and flour has revived this market more than depressed it. The holders of Launceston wheat arc firm at 8s. 6d. and 93., and although we have not heard of any sales, yet the purchases which have been made during the week of flour lead us to think that an advance will soon take place. The millers are delivering largely, and the spirit shown by those interested is the best proof wanting to bear evidence to the active nnd healthy state of this market. Prices, 21s., 20s. ; seconds, 18s., 17s. ; ration, 16s., lös.; No. I biscuit, SMis. ; 2

ditto, 21s., per cwt.

Bread.-The price of the 21b. loaf remains at fid. The bread generally is now of very good quality.


On a review of the commercial markets since our last, a good amount of business has been done in manufactured goods, at very satisfactory prices; and, for good samples of most goods, a steady advance may be anticipated.

Flour,-The transactions continue upon avery limited scale, consisting chiefly of Chilian at former rates, and the late arri- vals from Van Diemen's Land will not tend to advance the price.

JHicat -There being a good demand for Van Dieraen's Land, nearly all the recent importations have changed hands at &>. Cd. per bushel-about 6,000 bushels ; wc do not antici- pate higher prices.

Provisions.-Pork-There is no variation in the value 'of this article; the demand continues limited; the sales have been confined to a few tierces and barrels, at 70s. per barrel ; the barrels, in one instance, rejected ; but few good samples are now to be found, and an increased demand and rates may be anticipated ; several holders arc now firm for AL 4s, and one for öl., which they are likely to realise, as no importations are expected. Beef-There is still little or no disposition to purchase, and the market remains in a drooping state ; wc have only heard of one sale, of no import, at former rates. Butter-Of good quatity, in good demand, nnd readily bought on arrival; a lot of Holstein, 110 kegs, realised Is. Id., and a

small lot of Irish Is. Cd. Cheese, hams, and bacon are in good


Tea.-The market has become tranquil, and prices have undergone very little change since our lust. The transactions hate not been upon an extensive scale; the trade have pur- chased steadily, but not more than adequate to their wants, being very fearful of holding stock in the present unsettled

state of tlie market, and the known shipments that will shortly

be here.

Sugar.-Since our last, the arrival of the Alligator, with about 170 tons, caused considerable stir in the market; the principal holders of this article having refused to purchase at the rate asked, another firm stepped in and purchased the whole at 31/. per ton, a higher rate than we have known for years past. This sale has improved the stock on hand at least li. per ton, and will give a countenance of firmness on the part of the holders. In refined, we have only to report a sale of two tons, at Cd. per lb. ; the holders arc firm for increased prices. Coffee

remains quiet.

Tobacco.-There is a continuance of firmness on the part of the holders of good samples, and a good demand has again existed for this article, and prices paid have exceeded those last reported : 8 tierces Barrett's, Is. 3d. ; 16 tierces Jones' brand, Is. Id. ; 40 kegs, an inferior sample, IOd. ; 20 kegs prime,

Is. Id. ; with every prospect of increased rates being asked and


Cigars_This market continues dull, and prices depressed, with a disposition on the part of some holders to realise at

present rates.

Spirits.-B. P. Bum-In this market there has been less activity, and sales cannot be made with the same facility. The sales have been confided to a'bout 90 hogsheads, 8 O. P., at 3s. 2d. ; 30 hogsheads, 5 O. P., at 3«. cash ; 10 hogsheads, 10 O. P., at 3s. 3d. 'In foreign, S.'ÏOO gallons Mauritius, at Is. 2d. ; arrack, 15 hogsheads, at Is.

Brandy.-In this market the transactionsliave been very limited, -consisting of forty hogsheads now in harbour, Clavier brand, at 4s. 3d., a very high figure ; and a few hogsheads Hennessey's, two years in bond, very fine, at 5s. ; holders of approved brands evince no desire to sell at present rates ;

Geneva, both in case and wocd, is not quite sa much in


Beer and Ales.-We have not had any activity in this market during the week, but upon the whole a fair business has been done ; about 90 hogsheads Taylor's, just landed, at bl. as. per hogshead ; 40 hogsheads Alsop's ale bl. 10s. ; 30 hogsheads Ind and Smith's, at 4J, with 500 dozen Dunbar's ale and porter, at lis-, with 800dozen other brands, at9s.

Wines.-Little or nothing has been done, and prices keep very low, without any prospect of amendment. Stock very large and prices quite nominal.

Metals -Copper, with the exception of a trifling sale, at last week's rate,-the holders being disposed to wait for better prices, M ith every prospect of obtaining it. In Lead nothing

to Tepört.

Salt remains as last reported-dull in the extreme.

Deals continue very dull of sale, there being scarcely any

enquiry: the holders, however, do not press sales. Prices are

little better than nominal.

Manufactured Goods have been in good request, and a large amount of business has been done, and prices have still an upward tendency ; the rates obtained have been from 10 to 274 per cent, advance.-Sydney Herald,
