Alfred Harrison reports for the past •week as follows On Wednesday, June 9, at Mrs. Dannihy’s homestead, Seafield, stock, implements, &c., were sold on account of Messrs B.

The implements were in good order, and were sold at a good figure. There was a fair attendance, and a very good sale of all the lots offered. On Saturday, June 12, at the Baring Square yards, there was a large attendance, and though the prices were low the bidding was spirited, all lots being disposed of at good market values.
