Messrs. J. T. Ford and Co report on the live stock market for the week ending Thursday, the 22nd inst., as follows : At the Addington market yesterday, 6264 sheep, 445 head of cattle, and 40 pigs, were sent forward for the week’s supply. Mutton sold at l|d per lb, and beef at barely 20s per lOOlbs for the best quality, and had it not been for an outside buyer, prices would have been lower. Store sheep are in very good demand, especially crossbreds, and we are of opinion this class of stock will be in good demand for grazing purposes throughout the season. Crossbred ewes, for lambing purposes, are beginning to be inquired for, and if the harvest should prove a successful one, we feel certain there will be none too many in the market to meet the demand. Our entries were on account of Messrs. Gough, Rudd, Evans, Grier, M'Guire, Linney, Lewis, Castille, Colonel Packe, S. Garforth, H, Sutton, and others, at prices equal to above quotations. We also sold privately 25 head of steers on account of Mr. H. Overton, at L 7 10s. each. On Tuesday last, on account of D. Allan, Esq., we submitted, at our rooms, in Cashel street, the Cathallan township, and succeded in placing every section beyond the owner’s reserve, and during the week we have sold, on account of J. R. Aiken, Esq., his Glendore estate, comprising2soo acres of freehold, with improvements,-&c., for the sum of L 15,000. On Saturday last, at our Repository, we submitted the horses, farm implements, &c., in the estate of J. Blair, and disposed of everything at satisfactory prices. On Thursday at our skin and tallow sale, we had the usual attendance of buyers.
