Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co. report, that on Saturday last close on 40 horses were forward. The entry consisted of a very mixed lot, many ■—both in the heavy and light classes —being old and stale, and showing signs of heavy work. For the latter sorts the demand was slack, while good, fresh, young animals, as is always the case, were in demand. One 5-year-old draught gelding, bred by Mr Wm. Aitken at Mataura, brought >£47 10s, Mr J. B. Fordo being the purchaser. Other draughts ranged from ££3s to £2O for good fresh sorts. Light horses, quiet and reliable for harness, made £2O to £ls for best, while stiff, overworked sorts brought £5 to £lO each.
