Mark LANE Corn Exchange, July 26th, - We had heavy rain yesterday, and the
weather this morning has rather an unsettled appearance. Harvest work has been
partially commenced, and the reports from the country respecting the appear of
the crops, are generally of a favourable character; there are, however, some
complaints of blight and mildew. The show of Wheat at Mark Lane to-day, by land
carriage samples, from the home counties, was very small, and, though the
millers acted with extreme caution, they were unable to buy cheaper than before;
the terms realized about the same as those current on this day se'nnight.
Foreign wheat was very difficult of disposal, and the turn was decidedly in favour
of the buyer. Flour hung heavily on hand, and foreign was rather cheaper.
Barley could only be placed in lates. Malt was neglected. The oats trade was
dull, on Monday last. Two or three cargoes  have arrived from Arehangel of good
quality, for which 19s per quarter was asked. Beans and peas were each 1s. per
quarter cheaper. New Rape seed was offered at £ 23 to £ 24 per last.
