Bland and Humpherys report on the horse market, etc., for the fortnight ending Saturday, 26th April, as follows : On the 19th April we held our usual weekly horse sale at the East Street Horse Bazaar. The day's entry consisted of 42 horses, of which we sold 22. There was a good attendance of farmers and others, and as will be seen from the price list some good sales were effected. The leading feature of the day's sale was a line of. horses imported from Southland by Mr Edward Saunders, and we must again compliment him on his choice of a good all round lot of horses. The following is a detailed list of the day's work on account of Mr Saunders : 3 and four-year-old draught mares brought £29, £25, £24, £19 ; 4 to 6-year-old draught geldings, £25, £23, £22105, £20 ; 2-year-old fillies, unbroken, £18, £15 ; a very nice cob, £15. On account of other owners, 6 and 7-year-old draught mares- and geldings £15, £12, £11, £10; spring cart horse, £10. We sold a number of poor hacks and harness horses at £3 to £6 10s ; second hand trap £19.

On Saturday, 26th April, we had again a very large entry of 55 horsea of which we sold 25. The attendance of farmers and the general public was not so large as the previous Saturday, and biddings were anything but brisk, but we have no doubt that the market will revive as soon as the ploughing season gets into full swing. The following' are the prices obtained, viz :' 4 and 5-year-old draught mares and geldings brought £19 10s, £18, £16 10s, £16, £14 ; a team of 3 mares brought £52 10s ; 6 and 7-year-old do., £14, £13 10s, £13, £12 10s, £10 10s ; aged, do., from £8 to £12 5s ; unbroken colts and fillies, light, from £9 to £13 5s ; light harness horses, fair good sorts, £13, £11, £8; weedy hacks from £3 to £6 10s.' Sundries—3----j furrow ploughs £7, £10 10s ;' dray, £6 ; saddle, £3; leading harness, 30s to £2 per set; set of trap harness, £317s 6d.

On the 24th April we held a sale of blood stock on account of Mr Larry Markey, a number of which sold at prices already quoted. The balance we are prepared to treat privately for.
