Mes-rs Arthur M'Oonald and Co, repoit as follows for the week ending 9fch October: - Wool.—The progreis of the present series of London sales has so far been rr.a-ked with animation, but it would appear that tho most attention is being paid to merino i and kind cd sorts, while the hopes that the coarser grades of crofs-breds, including three-quarter-bred Lc'coster, 1 incola, Romney Marsh, would show so no improvement have hardly been realicd, for these desciiptions are out of fashion, and remain at about tho tame comparatively low range of value that has marked them during the whole of this year.
There is certain to be a largo business done at good prices in this market during the coming season, and we are thus eatly in a position to open up negotiations with growers f or the direct purchase of their woo's free of all charges. Sheepskins,—During the last few months we have probably been by far the largest buyers, and can still take any quantity at fullest market value.
