Average Prices of CORN throughout ENGLAND, for the week ending July 29.

[merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small]

Monday, Aug. 7.-The supplies of Wheat that have come in since this day se'nnight have been much larger than in any recent week; the quantities of Barley, Beans, Pease, and Oats, have been small. There are several samples of new Wheat at market, very dry, but not so fullbodied as last year's growth, which sold at 56s. to 65s. per qr. The d. weather continues so extremely favourable for harvest, that the Corn must now be nearly all secured within a considerable distance of the metropolis. Under these circumstances, our Millers purchase so reluctantly, that the Wheat trade has been very heavy, at a reduction of full 2s. per qr. from the terms of this day se'nnight.
