There has been a report current in town, that the omroissariat will shortly advertise tenders for 10,000 bushels of wheat, or flour in proportion to that extent, to be delivered in Launceston. We have not been able to ascertain the correctness of this report, but should our corn-holders be fortunate enough to obtain the con tract, we feel confident they will honorably deliver the (lour, free from adulteration. A correspondent informs us, that 400,000 bushels of wheat is fur loo much to expect from the district of Norfolk Plains this season, as stated by the Examiner; the average, three years ago, was only 16 bushels to the acre— this year not more than 20 can possibly be calcu lated.
