Hobart Town Markets, Jone 5th. Wheat still continues at the price quoted las n week, 16s per bushel, at which quotation some considerable quantity has exchanged hands. Tba prices quoted in our weekly retaros are lös, 15s6d and 16s, the variation being occasioned, as far as we can perceive, by the quality of the different samples, and not by any present tendency of the market to « look down,' although there are not a few who insist upon it that such is, or very shortly will be, the case. The millers present price for flour is, fine £90>% second £48, third £45 per ton j the copious and seasonable supply of water has not therefore reduced the price of this article, as we had fondly anticipated that it might; from which we 'guess* hat liie millers, at all events, are inclined to * look top* in their markets.
