I ?i .ef,pecte 1' I? 08 hown that tbe papers bad been altered, or that they had been brought to the defendant by hia order. I repeat tlut the matter is fraught with much suspicion, but al-"SS",.' te "I' "i0 "Wft objectionable, it ia not against the act of Parliament I certainly feel a difficulty in finding tbe defendant guilty.

At to-day's corn market the show of Wheat was tolerably good, and the trade ruled heavy at Is. per qr. reduction. The show of Barley was limited, and, with a quiet demand, prices were about the same as heretofore. The demand for Oats was by no means active, and the prices of last week were barely supported. In Beans not much busines done at recent terms. The corn harvest is making good progress around here, and many fields of Wheat and Oata nave been cut since last week. The new Wheat crop ia most favourably spoken of as regard quality, and the yield will be fair. Barley is expected to be fully nn average, and the plant looks healthy. Oats are being led, and the grain it of good quality. Beans and Peas are thriving fast. Potatoes are indifferent Wheat, red, 34s. to 46. ; ditto, white, 44s. Od. to 48s.

METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET (This Day). The arrival of Cattle, Sheep, die, into the port of London from the Continent during the past week has been again large. The Custom House official return gives an entry of 2,015 Oxen and Cows, 604 Calves, 11,280 Sheep, 753 Pigs, and 7 Horses, together making a total of 14,665 head, against Id.OUU head at the corresponding period of last year, 7,31 head in 1850, 12,131 head in 1858, and 10,477 in 1857. There was a fair average supply of every kind of meat this market to-day, and trade generally was more cheerful than last week. -ni 1 , . . , . - . . x ne supply oi oesi qualities oi ueci, nowever, was very smaii, ana tne iieei traae was toieraoiy Drisk at an advance of 2d. per stone on last Monday's rates, whilst in some instances for prime Scots 5s. per stone was realised. The number of Sheen and Lambs was rather shorter than on 'this day week, and both the Mutton and Lamb trades were better, and choice descriptions of both fetched 2d. per stone more money. The Veal trade was scarcely so good as ot late, and though the supply was smaller, a reduction of 2d. per stone in some instances had to be taken. I'ork was firm at previous quotations.

The reports from the plantations are more favourable than last week, and the duty in consequence has again touched 120,000. In the Borough trade has been quiet, but prices keep firm. The first pocket of the growth of 1861 arrived in London on Tuesday, the growth of Mr. John M Hooker, Moatland, Brencbley, Kent, and was sold at 25 per cwt The plant from which this pocket was picked is of the same sort as has furnished the earliest Hops for some years past, and known as the Brenchley Prolific. The quality for so early in the season is unusually good, and justifies tbe anticipation of some very choice samples of this year's growth. Mid and East Kent, per cwt. , 4 10a. to 10 10s. ; Weald of Kents, 4 to 9 0s. ; Sussex 3 15s. to 7 0s. ; Yearlings, 60s. to 10 10s. MONDAY (Thm Day). A rather unexpected arrival, being the first pocket of the new growth occurred the beginning of the week. The quality was considered good, it was grown at Brenchley. Kent, and sold at 25 per cwt. From the favourable condition of the weather, the condition of all the healthy portion of the plantations, more particularly the gouldings in East and Mid Kent, ma be expected to be at least of an average quality. Prices have fallen from 10s. to 15s. , and the duty is called about 120,000. WOOL MARKET, Friday. The Colonial sales this week have at times gone off with animation, and in some instances at rather better prices. Several parcels that were withdrawn in the early part of the series have during the last few days been placed at prices that were not obtainable on their first being offered.

COLONIAL PRODUCE MARKETS. REVIEW OF THK WKBJT. Purchases have been made more readily in Colonial Produce during the last few days, and an increase hat alaa taken place on Continental account ; still merchants hare been willing sellers, and the markets have been abundantly supplied with the leading articles, whilst there is no speculation. Prices have rather given way for Sturar. Tea. and Coffee; there is, however, no decided change with respect to Spices, Rice, Spirits, or Saltpetre. Scoar. The market has been well supplied, which, coupled with a moderate demand for all purposes, has caused prices to rule under those of last week. Refined goods are firm, the lowest rate for common lumps being 49s. per cwt Treacle is firm at 16s. to 20s, per cwt The average price of Brown or Muscovado Sugar, the produce of the British possessions in America, computed from the returns made in the week ending Aug. 13, exclusive of Customs' duties paid or payable thereon on the importation thereof into Great Britain, is 23a. 44 per cwt From the Mauritius. s. Od per cwt. From the East Indies, 15s. lOd. per cwt The average price of the two foregoing descriptions of Sugarjointly is 22s. 114 per cwt By authority of Parliament, W. Ruck, clerk of the Grocers' Company. Grocers' Hall, August 16. Tba. The public sales of Tea have gone off with rather more animation, and, in some instances, prices have advanced $4 per lb. Privately, tbe market is firm, but the amount of business doing is small. The stock of Tea in London is 57,O8O,00Olb., against 57.808,8001b. last year. In the United Kingdom supply is estimated at 69,713,000th. against 69,455,0001b. in I860.
