there nonthe discloee no improvement over the
past two moaths. Early tn December the supply
on pale was much reduced and priie to conse
quence again advanced, hbut as there was no in.
creased demand prices again receded, the mar
ket closing dull at $1 1001 15 per bushel. Sales

January and February--The month of January
opened with a market entirely bare of supiies
ald with a very limited inquiry There were
heavy orders for shipment but buyera and sallers
were too much apart in their views for operauiooe
of any magnitude. As the month of February ad
vanced, holders. seelug that nothing was to be
gained by keePlng up prices,. reduced their figunre
about 10b. per bushel. Exporters camne fa r
ward more freely, and a heavier business
would have been done but fu- the want of freight
room. Prices ranged from 92S: @($ 021 per
bushel, whi e sales for the two moutha amounted
to 4100,340 sacks against 497,000 the same time
lest year. These two months were the hearites
during the entire year.and prices flootuaed less.
I)urlng the month of January the Area grain ele
vator arrived, and although small, Is capable of
discharging 10,000 bushels of grain per day. The
trial proved to our western friends that grain can
t e shipped quicker and at a much less cost
thrrugh our port than by any other routs.
Aarch, April antd4May-Dur'ng these three
months there was little variation to notice in the
nmovements. IReceipte at times were barely sufit
clent to meet the demand.and which were divi d
among buyers for shipment and for the trade. Pri
cde however, fluctuated more than the two previ
onu mronths, the extreme figures being 90u (0 @121}.

1 130 over the same time last year, 444,000 belog
feoid in the month of March.
Joa,, July and August--From the first of June
to the close of July prisesm exhibited a gradual
decline, falligU from $1 06 per bushel to iSo. per
bushel, the de figures. Fron, the lt of Au
gust, however, rates stiffened up and advanued to
$1 15 per buhbel, not owing to any improvement
in thle demand, but to decreasing stocks; li fact,
on the 14th of the month the levee was entirely
b Lre of all supplies. Prices closing this evening
