LAUNCESTON. VIEAT.--The prices range from 5s. Od. to Os. Od. per bushel, according to the sample and credit. Purchases are low made more freely at Os. than they were some weeks ago; domestic consumption and exportation are gradually re ducing the stocks: and, on this account, there is a slight indication of an advance in price. The experience of the last two years, we are however sure, will not be lost on the growers. Their plan is to mceet the demand at a remunerating rate; not to hold for exhorbitant prices; which can never exist for a long period, and must ultimately be productive of injury to thle t?rmer. WVhelnthe price of wheat is above 8s. per bushel, foreign supplies will undoubtedly reach us. IAnLEY--English, troiml 6s. O0. to Os. per bushel; Cape, ,s. OId. ditto.
