REVIEW OF THE CORN TRADE. I The continued wet of the past week has served to keep much land under water, but where there is some elevation and natural drainage it is surprising to find the ground in comparatively good working order. Much of this is to be attributed to the numerous fissures made in the soil during the drought, and the constant action of thosesubterranean workers, the worms,. and their auxiliaries. But the superficial'.damp and and warmth, coupled with the natural tendency of all seeds to germinate in the spring, have made it next to impossible to send well-conditioned samples to market. Hence heaviness has been the order of the day; and with the Northern ports gradually opening in Europe, a sort of paralysis has come over the entire corn trade, more depressing to the values of Spring Corn than Wheat, for the reason that it has relatively been higher and until March comes to our help, with its stirring breezes, we may remain dull. All calcula- tions have become unsettled, from the unusual weather but it seems that some thirty years since at about this season the turnip-tops had grown so rank that they had to be mown. Astronomers tell us there is a re- markable gathering of spots in the sun, and that this disturbance of our central luminary is always connected with magnetic variations, and possibly with electric action. If so, we must take our fate till Nature reverts to her primitive simplicity, get through the phenomena as well as we can, and leave the question, What will the end be ?" till we arrive at it. Hay was to have been very dear, but the abundance of grass has kept down the price. Potatoes were to have rotted off (and not much loss to the eaters neither) but the few bad left are lost sight of in the fineness and abundance of turnips and greens, and the hard winter so confidently predicted has awoke up the flies in our living rooms. But we may yet see a turn as complete before the spring has ended, and we think Wheat has by far the best cbauce. In France Wheat has declined Is to 2a per qr. while Belgium has slightly given way, as well as at several places in Germany but at Hambro' prices have been maintained both of Wheat and Barley. In New York breadstuffs have rather declined.
