forward with fifty millions luoru bushels than

There la no mistake about tho failuiu of thu
wheat crop in Aiucilca, which is likely to fall
100,000,000 bushels short of tho pioduet of
1880, Oregon and tho I'.iciiiu northwest being
alxjut tliu only legion that has held its own.
And in addition to this diminished yield of
wheat tho ten iblo diouth that has prevailed
for ten xu'eks past has despoiled tho States
that rcath fiom Nibiuska to the Atlantic,

CincAoo, Seit. ID. Tho Tribune' coinprc
hensivo reports of drought, and its cllects
show that it has almost ruined pastures in tho
northwest and made plowing for winter wheat
almost impossible. It has caused a great de
crease in tlio prospect of xvheat acreago for
1882. Tho no tat o crop is nearly a total failure
everywhere, and all kinds of vegetables xvill
bo seal co and nriccs of livinir will bo Inch this
winter. In Minnesota, Dakota and Wiscon
sin there has been to much rain. In south
ern Illinois corn is being imported to supply
tho homo demand, and peoplo aro shipping

tho Winter. Eight reports from this Btato
show tho corn crop to lie eo.ua! to 18S0; 52
report it damaged; from 23 to 50 or 55 report
tho ilamaeo troin 7U per cent, to a laimro.
In Missouri two-thiids of tho corn damaged
20 to 50 per cent. Kansas, though more fav
ored by rain, reports corn 20 to 50 per cent,
damaged. Ohio and Indiana out of 07 reports

tho corn is no better than in other portions

FOREIGN CROPS AND MARKETS.
(Hates ot Auk. at.
Heavy rnln 1ih fallen In tlio north of
HiIh country, doing bouib Injury to tho
wheat crop. Concerning the total yield,
It Is now evident tlmt nt least as nitioli
wheat xvill bo required to bo Imported as
ilurlng tho past season, during wliloli
the net Imports of wheat nnd llour have
reached a total of 7,2lil),000 quarters,
against 0,020,000 quarters In tlio provl
oiin season of 1870-80. The wheat trade
this week has been firm, but tho ad
vance lit England and America has not
been freely followed, owing to the In
crease In the farmers' supplies, ami a
general Imllsposltlou to operate at the
high prices. The quantity of wheat on
passago to France by sail Is now 270,000
quarters, and by stenru 55,000 quarters,
Ralust a total of 230,000 quarters last
A firm am) Improving tone has pre
vailed In the wheat trade this week, but
there has uot been very much aotlrlty.
At Autwerp, yesterday, wheat xvas
Arm, but quiet, and ryo llrui. The
quantity of wheat on passage to Ant
werp by sail Is 123,200 quarters, and by
steam 40,000 quarters, against a total of
about 100,000 quarters last year,
Wet xvonther has delayed the harvest
and deteriorated tho crops In the north
of this country, and lu the south also
tho yield does uot oouie up to expecta
tions. Altogether It Is feared (hat the
general result of this year's harvest will
be a poor one, although lu some cate au
excellent yield Is anticipated. Tlio Ger
man "term" markets have been decid
edly Improving this week for both
whrat mid rye, tho greater advance be
wheat. At Berlin, last week,
wheat was verystroosr. espec
ially for near delivery, which Improved
8 marks. Rye also was 2 marks higher.
At Hamburg spot wheat rules firm and
Is gradually advancing. In the first six
months of tho present year, Germany
Imported 785,500 quarters wheat and 1,-
237,200 quarters rye. The Imports In tho
second half are expected to be much
Tho weather has likewise been wet in
this country, Interfering with tho har
vest and deteriorating the quality of the
new grain. This, with rising markets
abroad, has caused great firmness, and
at Amsterdam November wheat Is 811
higher on tho week. Ityo is also 411
higher for October delivery. This delay
In tho harvest, and the fact that millers
who hovo sold flour for forward delivery
are bare of stocks, has caused an active
demand for wheat. The quantity of
wheat now on passage to Holland Is GO,
400 quarters by sail, Including 47,100
quarters from India. Owing to the rap
id advance lu Loudon, Autwerp is now
a more remunerative market for Dutch
According to advices of the 21st Inst.,
rain bad fallen, but was too lata to do
much good to the malzo plant. Barley
and rye prove very deceptive, but wheat
Is still Bpoken well of. Tho trade had
been Improving for both wheat and
flour, the latter tneotlng a good Inquiry
for export to England and South Ger
many. According to official statistics
the exports of flour from Austria-Hungary
In the first half of this year were
505,504 quintals (441,500 sacks of 2801b)
against 403 005 qulutals In the corres
ponding period last year, the imports
being 255,484 quintals, against 370,375
quintals last year.
The crop reports from this country aro
somewhat conflicting, but on tho whole
quite favorable for a good cropof wheat
rye and especially barley. Some reports
state that the yield of wheat will uot be
so abundant as had been expected, but
others say that It Is very large. It is
certain, however, that a very much
larger quantity of wheat wilt be availa
ble for export than last year, the esti
mates varying from 4 to 7 million quar
ters over last year, but It must nut be
forgotten that the new crop comes upou
a country quite bare of old grain. So
far, the recent advance has notmttracted
large oilers from South Russia, proba
bly owing to the difficulty in moving
tho grain to the seaboard.
Telegraphlo advices from Naples state
that the extraordinary heat and drought
have seriously Impaired tho out-stand-log
crops, maize being almost lost. A
Urge demand has consequently sprung
up for maize for Italy in the Danube
and In the Black Sea, as well as In

All theso desirable tiiln.-s can bo accomplished, but
