STONEY MARKETS, DECEMBB*. 11.
Since our last not the slightest improvement has taken place in any of our markets, nor have we heard of any private sales having been effected ; in fact, every description of busi- ness hat come to a stand «ill-no prices can be affixed to any articles The tales by the hammer of goods driven into the market leave such result! as have never been before known in this colony-scarcely enough to pay freight and charges: this, however, is partly owing to the goods not being adapted to the market; one sale of well selected dry goods (at Lyon't) having shown a very different result from the generality of the
Flour-There is no change in the price of this article since our lost report, the sales of colonial flour are Mill effected by that of the imported flour.
Bread remains unchanged in price; several of the manufac- turers of inferior bread ore selling the two pound loaf at 4d.
Wheat.-On account of the halfest, but five loada nave reaehed Campbell-street during the week ; the prices given for it have ranged from 5s to Cs 3d per bushel.
Barley.-Only two loads have been sold at the stand since our lost week's report ; the prices given were from Ss 9d to 3* per bushel ; the dealers are asking 4s per buihel.
Oats.-None have been received for tome weekt patt ; the dcalert are charging 6s per bushel.
Hay continues to be of a fair quality, only thirty loads have been brought from the interior since the week began, but the scantiness of this supply is mainly to be attributed to this being the wheat harvest time. There it an abundant first erop of hay already secured by the growers, but tbey have not time at present to get it sent to town. There it also a good prospect of an excellent second crop from the late abundant and seasonable rains. The price given in town for new hay varies from £7 to £9 per ton
Vegetable» -Potatoes have declined greatly in price during the week ; the best Derwent* are now lin per ewt, and new colonial from 7s to 9s per cwt- It it evident, from the quality and abundance of the latter, that a considerable number of the settlers have turned their attention to the growing of these, and there is little doubt but ere long we shall have no occasion to impoit from either New, Zealand or Van Diemen* Land.- Sydney Herald.
