STOCK AND STATION REPORT. Mr Donald Stronach (on behalf of the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Com;.any, Limited) reports for the week ended Juno 5, as follows: — Fat Cattle.—To-day aj.ain the number to hand at liurnside sales was mi.ro in ac-oular.c.' with trade r. qmroments, only 120 he id bene." yarded, ranging fiom medium to good and prime quality. A slight improvement was apparent in the demand ; bidding was brisker, and juices realised were more satisfactOiy, quality ami weight considered.

Fat Sheep. about 230 mcTinncs, all the rest cro-s-breds, representing all qualities but the greater portion were ewes. The de-nand all fhroiich was less active, only a few of the best cross-bred withers b-dng taken up for export, the balance beit g in excess of the trade requirements, prices were lower.

There are buvers at all times for matured,-well-bre'l bul'oek", in fm-wa-d condition, if olilainrd at prices bkely ta> have a margin ' fter fattenin-:, v hi'eli has not he.-n the case for a considerable peried. Stere Shei p -- Cms? -bred rhecp of almost any dcciiption are sa'calde, but; »nor-> especially two, four, ard six-taotb wetheis: also maiden ewe- for fattening continue in good demand. _ few sales of aged "merino vethei s and "», -n ith s-und months too still effected ; but, as m'"- f of the station-owncs have already disused of their snrnlus stock for the season, sales are nt t now so numerous. Wool - By the Ran Francisco mail last week we received pi iced evlal f:tie= for the second .eri's of London wool sales u-i to Ap-d 17; also our London circular <f date Anvil 10 which eomments a < follows on tie nro re-- 3 „r <ho series up to the Fast, r holidays:- Al' descriptions of merino and the finer g.vVs .f r.ros--brel sold well up to the clonrg rates of the iireceding series, and occasionally ruled in seller's favor. The few parcels of coarse j eros-ebrods d'sposed of showed some irresu- ! larity in price, but were not qu-.tiblv changed in value. As the rales progressed comnetition inereased, and vabies s"adual!y hndened, with the r <n't that: w l lf!rl M,e sittings were suspended on 17'h imt,, for the Ei'-ter holidays, a di'-'b ct'v higher rarg'-of prices had bo"n attained for nearly all de-crip-tions. Crn-.d combing meino in the grease marked an advance of quite ?,d to Id per lh, i and medium and inferbr sorts about Jd lb, whilst seamed mrrinoes general'y were 1d to 1 -i,d pir lb dearer. Fine cross-bred, w'.ethp.r t'reasv o'' sconre/', exhibited a rise of ?/l to Id per lb, but the coarser grades showed no material change. That the latter description*, in the face of liberal supplies and of the that (,be value of domestic wool has been somewhat difficult to maintain, should have supported the full rates ruling in the last auctions, is in itself a satisfactory feature. Up to the inomeit trade advices are enemmeir.tr, and there is no rea=on Io anticipate any falling off >n the demand on the opening of the third fer'es commencing on the 18th inst. On Monday at auction we sold, under keen competition, hales greasy merino, 10{d : do. 3 do do pieces, the following lots, viz. : -T over HUNTF.H, 7 B}d ; PUKETOI. 1 do do merino. 9|>d per lb. Sheepskins.—We submitted a full cata'ogue nt, onr auction sale on Monday. There was a large attend >neo of the trade, who competed rs u-uivl spiritedly for every lot on the cata logue, green skins especially realising higher prices.
