MR D. THOMAS. Mr D. Thomas (late <jf M*tson, Oox and Oo.) reports upon the Live Btook Market for the Ashbutton district, for the weak ending August 18 th as follows i — On Tueflday at the Tinwald Yards I held my usual weekly sale . of sheep, oattle, and pigs. The total for the day was 5065 sheep, 10 bead of oattle, and 11 pig«. There was a good attendaneo, and the bidding for all olaaaes of good sheep was spirited, with the exception of ewes m lamb, which I consider are far below their real value.
