ADDIMTOW LIVE STOCK MARKET.

Ohbistohuros, Ootobet 31. There was a fair aftendanqe *t the market to-day, bat a strong dußty norNrester was blowing the greater part of the day. Oaths.— There was a fairly large entry of , fat aa.ttle, but as has been the case for some weeks, the entry was m exoesa of local wants. Prime beeves were sold up to £9 10s. Beef of the very best quality fetched 20s per 1001 b; fair to medium 18a to 19a, and inferior from 15s upwards. Store Oittlh. — Thera wai. a fair entry of itore oattle, most of which were Bold at'about the prices that have rated lor the last tow •ales. . : ■■■'-' T>xmt Cattle.— Tha . entry of dairy oattle was about ordinary, and prices showed no improvement. Boally good bowa always Bell and fetoh fair figures, and cows m profit, of quality, to-day brought the usual good figures. Calves.— A number of passably good oalvei were on offer, say between 80 and 40> and prioee, snywhero between 6b and 255, wera obtained. Shbkp.— Owing to the fast that there will be no market nest Wednesday (being one of the Show days), there was a larger market of fat sheep than has been customary for soma weeks. The opening waß a bit light, and tha market throughout was somewhat uneven. Sheep m wool fetohed easily ad per lb for tha very primest, and shorn mutton would fee worth about 2d per lb. The average pries for passable shorn crossbred wethers would bo found between 10s $d and Us 3d. bat an exceptionally good pen of six shorn erbssbreda fetohed 14a. All round there was a decided drop m the market, and taking the, sheep from beginning to end, it may ba said that the values of last week, were not main* tamed by about %b per head, Store Bnexp-.~-.The entry was big and was made up mostly of young sheep, hoggeta preponderating. Thanks to the recent stretch of dry weather the demand was weak and far below the tone of last month, consequently a good many withdrawals took place, and tfca sales effeoted were at lower rates. A Una of crossbred ooupleß at 10a 3d to lis. Fax liAvus.r^Lambs wera numerouer, and Us was perhaps the beßt prioe obtained. The quality 61 most linen was rather superior* Pias,— Pigs were a poor entry, and poik was worth 3d per lb, but everything was Bold.
