The chance is that, out of its abundance, the United States may be able to supply the deficiency of wheat in Great Britain. The aoreage there is estimated at 500,000 less than last year, and the yield at two bushei less per acre. The expected erop is 92,400,000 bushels, of which 8,000,000 must be held for seed. The consuruption of Great Britain is 176,000,000 bushels, and, consequently, more than half of this amount must be imported. The average production of Great Britain lor sixteen years was 100,000,000 bushels. The average iinports were about 50,000,000. Of these iinports, in 1870 the United States furnished 20,000,000 bushels, and Russia 16,000,000. In 1872, Rus sia furnished 20,000,000 and the United States but 13,000,000. Denmark is steady for nearly 0,000,000 bushels each year. - The total wheat erop of this country is something like 240,000,000 bushels. The n veratro consumption of wheat in Great Britain is about 5 bushels per head. Here it is higher than that, in the Northern and Eastern States, and less in the South and West, where corn is so freely used. Our erop this year will be up to the average. The report from Russia is favorable, so that Grrat Britain will not want. - JV. Y. Spectator.
