The leading produce markets were rather more act ive yesterday, anil again steady in tho aggregate, though some exhibited moderate lluctustlons in prices. The weather was unsettled and uncertain, Itdidool 99 & int. rain, but threatened to do so, and tho fear of a damp spring on previously wet land gave rise to (he expres sion of some doubt in regard to tbo next crop, but did not stimulate prices, as the groat majority are very dubious In regard to profit from bujlng on bad wcatber. The grain movement was quiet tor tbo sea- jn. and rather dull. Tho demand for dry goods continue* fair, »nd price* ire uniformly steady. Otoccrit* were reported steady under a fair inquiry from the couutry and city trade. Teas were unchanged.

The fish market traa Arm under a continued good Inquiry and moderate supplies. A decline is noted in carbon oil and turpentine. Cheese remains quiet, and butter met with a fair inquiry at former price*, the only signs of weakness, if tbera do any, being in (ho lower grades, the supply of which appears to be Increasing. The coal and wood markets wore quiet and un changed. llie offerings at the ealo docks ware large yesterday, and the market ruled lalrly active, both local aud country buyer* tilting hold with moderate freedom. The striko at some of the yards deterred several local buyers from'taking hold. Tbo demand for hardware. Iron, and nails was again fair at steady prices.

Lawdcr, of Whitby, Ontario, Canada, in bla latest clicular, brills'* forward the flgureu of rola (ire movement of wheal and Hour into the United Kingdom, moat of vrhkh havu been already published, uad present* tho following u hla conclusion* there* from: J, Thai tho excess of stock* st scaboprd [torts in Great Ilrilnlu oa 29th ivbrtury over itmo date last year will bo balanced by (ho deficiency lu hnnio-growo deliveries during the six mouths, Ist ilarcli to 3lst August next. 3. Tli*l Hie execs*ln ** visible supply" In that part of North America tributary to Atlantic ports at same date was balanced by tho deficiency lu quantity afloat and to go from fadfio State*. 3. That the probabilities are that there waa aloes 2 uantlty of wheat lu farmer*’bands In the Western tales at same date. 4. That If cuuaumptloD in great Britain during last alx months of present harvest year should be as largo as in find alx months, tba United Kingdom will re aiiiru to Import in tbesu months about tho same quau* ty of wheat as In 18»6. And believing that the wheat crop of 1875 in Russia. Hungary, and franco waa a very Inferior one, It would apiHJsr (bat there Is no sure basis for tho very confident opinion eo generally entertained (hat there Is an abundant supply for England and other impart* lug countries at present, or lower prices. The general depression in all klnda of trade has no doubt tended to piroduce a very dull feeling in tho corn trade. However, the wheat market U a most sensitive one, and as the season advances this very confident feeling as to abundant supplies may bo dis pelled, snd this, or perhaps a few nays or weeks of unfavorable weather, may product uneasiness. In this case, the present heavy stocks will prove a Blender barrier against advancing prices. Tho following is an extract from a 11 elf oat (Ireland) letter dated April 23 : “ The facta we know are that we have a ortal con sumption of wheat and Indian corn, tho latter sums* 'lug, owing to the high prices the farmer la getting fbr eggs, butler, baron, and uoef, lulu which be converts it. If this consumption can bo supplied at present rates from Europe, be sure we shall take it, but If not, America has the chauca of making a trtfie, which I imagine she will know how to profit by." The following figures alto near upon this point: The inspection of wheat Into store In Chicago yesterday waa 83 car-loads, sgslnst 360 cars the same date in 1619. The total number Inspected into store last May was 6,014 cars. Tha number for this month will be scarcely 3,000, unless a speedy Inemse occur la the volume of our receipts. noa PRODUCTS—Were more active la the aggre gate, and averaged nosier, though hogs were quoted firmer.

There wore a few buying orders in from the country, and some demand on Eastern account, but these were soon filled, and there was not much Inquiry, but holders wore generally firm In their views, on account of tho weather, (ho storm having been much worse for corn than for wheat. A good deal of corn laud is yet un plautcd, and more wet means more time required to dry out before tho land le fit to boar the feet of horses. In fact, nut a few operators are inclined to expect a small corn crop in 1876, but remembering tbo yield of last year tinder unfavorable conditions they do net core to commit themselves too deeply to the theory. The demand for freight room per rail continues good, cars being scarce, which indicates that more com would bo bought for aliipmeut if it could be seat forward speedily V but there is u growing disinclination to assume the risks of long transportation.
