THE TEAK'S WHEAT CBOI.
A London telegram of Septembe 18,
gives the followirg in regard to the
wheat crop of the current year :
((Mr. Jas. Caird, who is supposed to
be a - great authority on agricultural
questions, has just published some inter
esting calculations as to the wheat crop
ot 1875 , He shows that the fall in the
prices of wheat list' year was fol
lowed by a reduction ot 830,000 acres
in the breadth of wheat, or nearly one
tenth of the. total crop in the United
Kingdom, and that there has generally
in other countries been a diminished
area of wheat. This year the harvest
has been three weeks later than last
year iu this country, and its introduction
to market a wholorooniht later; and
Mr. Caird calculates' that, allowing tor
the fcutplud Tromn-ttre- more f
than eleven months' consumption will
now have to' be provided for until 'the
next harvest' comes round. Ihia is 22,-
000.000 quarters altogetlier, half
of 'whioli we have 'at home, and
the rest must be got "from, abroad.
From Russia and froci Germany a
liberal supply may be expected. Tlicre is
also sl good stock to bo drawn upon in
France, and the &rniar$ are holding
Lack forlii.cr prices. " Mr. Csird says
the chief pfprtihension is " in regard ' to
tLc supply from the United States and
Canada. 'From that source during the
IfS.il CLi'co years wo Lave' annually te
ctuvd between 6,003,000 and 7,000
