The fat pwns were about three parts filled with a class of mutton eomewhat better than has been the case at the two past sales, prices being firm at late rafes. With the c-xcdptioa of aged breeding ewes, all classes of sheep sold weil up to late rates. The cattle yarded were chiefly beef of medium quality, both beef and dairy cows selliDg slightly better than last week. Tho total yarding of sheep waa between 3,500 and 4,000, while about 40 head of mixed classes of cattle came up for offer.
