ASHBURTON WOOL SALES

D. Thomas reports upon the above sale aB follows:— On Monday last the second wool saio of the season was held m Auhburton. The various catalogues comprised nearly 1800 bales of various qualities. About the ordinary number of buyers attended, but from the firßt a languid tone prevailed and taken all round, values,, more especially m merino, were not as good as at last sale. First-class crossbred was m demand and realized as much as at the former sale whilst medium crossbred which was considerably heavier and dingier than m December suffered to the extent of £d to |d per lb. Merino ewe wool was not m demand and m this the greatest drop was noticeable. To show ibe irregularity of the sale I sold two or three lines of wool at higher values than I wan offered for them at my former sale Bett first cross made with me, 7sd, Bsd to 9|d ; Down wool to 9§d, being highest price obtained m crossbred ; second croßs, 7Jd to B£d per lb ; merino ewes, 7£d to Bsd per ib ; pieces, 5Jd to 7*d ; locks, lid to 5d per ib. tiubjoiued are the brands and prices the various lots realiz d : — Bales— O over JB, 2, crossbred hoggets, BJd ; O over H, 2, merino ewes, 7Jd ; © over H, 2, crossbred ewes and merino, 7?d ; EHD, 1, pieces, 6£d ; RT, 1, pieoes, 6d ; DB, 4, pieoea, ssd j DB, 1, looke, 3fd ; P, 1, orossbred and merino wethers, 8d ; 0 between bars, 2, pieoeß, 6|d; DL, 4, merino, 7|d; C between bars, 1, looks, 3d ; WB over W, 7, first oross eweß, 8d ; WB over W, 6, first orosa hoggets, 8d; UP conjoined, 6, crossbred, 8d; JB\ 5, merino, 7|d; R, 3, orossbred, Bfd; HR conjoined, 1, pieces, 5Jd ; HR conjoined, 1, looks, 3d; HR conjoined, 2 merino, 1 merino and orossbred, 8d; HR conjoined, 3, quarter-baok, BJd ; HR oonjoined, 8, crossbred ewes and 10 rams fleeces, 9£d: 02, 2, orossbred Down, 9£d; 02, 2, crossbred, Bjd; 02, 1, merino, orossbred Down and 3 rams fleeoes, B£d ; TW oonjoined, 5, crossbred ewes, BJd; MJ, 9, orossbred, 8?d: MJ, 5, first oross hoggets, B|d ; WM, 8, orossbred hoggets, B£d, ; WM, 1, crossbred, 7*d ; WM, 6, halfbred, B|d ; M, 8, first cross ewes, B|d; WM.3, merino, 7£d; WM, 3, pieoes, 6&d WM, 1, merino and orossbred, 7d; RT, 3, halfbred ewes, B£d ; PD, 5, merino, 7gd ; JB, 6, merino, 7|d; RT, 6, first orosebred, weU skirted, Bjd ; 0 between bars, 8, first ctobsbred, well skirted, 8f d ; 0 between bars, 2, 1 orossbred and 1 halfbred and merino, well skirted, 7fd ; 0 between bars, 2, merino, well skirted, 7f d ; SB, 13, crossbred hoggets, BJd ; M 5, 7, crossbred ewes, 9d; M 5, 2, 1 pieces and dead wool and 1 pieoes, 6d ; M 5,1,, 1, rams, Sft^W.";* bla< ? k W0 Q °}« 7 * d 5 WM, 1, looks B|d j TE, 4. merino, 8d ; TE, 2, orossbred hoggets, B|d; JS over T, 4, merino, 7jd: 82, 2, firat cross hoggets, B*d • 53., 5, merino; 8d ; 18, 3, first orosa hoggets, &kA ; IR, 3, quarter,bßok, $d j WW, 2, merino, 7*d ; RB 9, 1 crossbred hoggets and 1 crossbred, B|d • RB, 1, merino, 7|d; MJ, 8, merino, 7|d • DB, 3, longwool, 8d ; DB, 8, first oross, Bsd : DB, 15, first orosa hoggets, B§d ; DB, 15 merino, Bjd; I with bar, 1, dead wool, 7d ; TE, 1, piegea, e^d } AW, 2, 1 merino, and 1 merino, 6 fleeoes orossbred and 2 fleeoes rams, 7£d ; SO, 6, orosßbrea hoggets, Bid ; 80, 5, longwool, BAd ; SO, 5, orossbred Bsd ; M, 8, 9, crossbred 81d ; GN, 8, merfho 7fs TJ, 1, bellies and pieces, $M; TI, Si merino, Bjd ; TI, 1, halfbred, B|d; L 12 ,1, half merino and half crossbred, 7|d ; Ll2, 1, orosebred hoggets, BJd ; Ll2, 3, halfbred, B|d ; WB over W, 1, orossbred bellies, 6Jd ; WB over W, 1, looks, 2d ; T over J, 2, first cross, Bsd ; X, 1, pieces, 6Jd ; X, 1, merino ewee, and 7 ram fleeoes, 7jd; X, 4, merino ewes, 7|d ; UP oonjoined, 1, pieoes, 6d ; 52, 1, looks, 2f d ; MR, 1, orossbred and pieoes, 6£d ; MR, 1, pieoes, 4sd ; MR, 1, oroßsbred, 8d ; 28, 1, first oross ewes, B^d; AJH, 4, orpssbred ewes, B|d; 82, 2, merino ewes, 7^d ; 82, 1, oroßsbred, 8d ; JB, 1 fadge, pieoeß, 6|d; D within square, 1 iadge, pieoes, 4Jd ; P, 2, orossbred, 7£d ; P, 4, merino, 7|d ; J over S, 4, first oroßß, 8f d ; JJ, 1, merino ewes, 7Ad ; RA, 4, first cross washed wool, lO&d ; RA, a, merino washed wool, 10£ d; ER, 1, 14 fleeces orossbred bal merino, 8d; ER, 1, crossbred ewes and hogget, 8d ; half-oirole over OH, 3, orossbred, 7|d ; square over 0, 3, oroasbred, Bid ; Bquare over 0, 2, merino, 7f d ; WM, 1, 10 fleeoes longwool, 1 ram, \ merino, h,al, flrat oross wethers, 7d ; F over oonjoined, 1, merino ewes, 7sd; F over a oonjoined, 1, seoond oroas wethers, 7 ram neeoes, B.{d; F over a conjoined, 1, part merino and halfbred ramß, 7^d ; F over oonjoined, 1 bale 1 fadge, pieoeß and looks, 3|d.
