Messrs H. Matson and Co. report as follows of their usual fortnightly sale for this district, which was held on Tuesday last at the County Saleyards :—There was a very small attendance of farmers, and a very large entry both in cattle and sheep. Business was extremely dull, and a large proportion of the entry had to be turned out unsold. Reef sold freely, but store cattle were entirely neglected, unless at ruinous prices to the vendors. In both fat and store sheep the greatest difficulty was experienced in quitting them at any prices. The fanners are evidently afraid that unless rain comes soon there will be a scarcity of food.
