Mr Alfred Harrison reports the following business done at his mart on Saturday.:—Several horses were disposed of at prices ranging from LlO to L 25 ; also several drays at from L 7 to Ll 4 10s. Double-furrow ploughs by Reid and Gray brought LlO and Lll ; and one by Hornsby, L 6. Several single-furrows were sold at from L2 to L 5. Three-leaf harrows fetched L2 10s. and L 4. An intermediate and horse-power were sold for 810. Harness sold at very fair prices indeed. Fourteen pigs, weighing about lolbs. each, were sold at 15s. per head. Geese fetched 10s. per pair, and fowls from 2s. 6d. to 3s. per pair ; ducks, 4s. 6d. to ss. 6d. per pair; and turkeys, 4s. to 6s. each. Potatoes were sold at L 3 per ton, while onions were quitted at fd. to Id. per lb. Chick feed was sold at Is. 6d. to Is. 9d. per bushel, and pig feed at L2 10s. per ton. Cheese (a very good sample) brought 6d. per lb. A very good feature of the times is the fact that furniture and sundries are now on sale only in small lots, and what comes to hand commands good prices—signs, we should say, of more confidence, and the absence of a desire to move.
