Messrs Arthur M’Donald and 00. report as follows for the week ending 25th inst.; Cablegrams reporting the position of the London sales of Friday last are rather contraVictory, However, we feel Ratified that the market was then very firm, which was in a great measure due to the small catalogues offered, caused by tho non-delivery of the large shipments per Eaikoura, Doric, and Tongariro, owing to the strike. When these shipments, together with tho usual supply, are submitted in November, it is difficult to forecast the effect they will have unon the market. AHhough there is no increase in tho limits locally, an active inquiry exists at 17d to 17jd for superior thin-pelte'’, and 15d to 16W for good to prime. Winter colored is firm at 9d to lid. Summers and autumns: Few offering. Springs, lOd to 13d. These prices ate free of all charges.
