Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co. report that on Saturday last they held their weekly sale in the Prince of Wales Yards, the principal attraction toeing- Mr Baird’s lot of 38 draughts. These horses, although not in great condition, were a useful lot and for the best, of them competition was brisk, the result toeing that the majority of this consignment (also that of other vendors) changed hands at satisfactory prices. Old, stale animafs were, however, neglected and difficult to place. The following are some of the prices realised : £45 (2), £44, £42, £4O (3), £37, £35, £3O 10s, £29 (2), £26, £25, £2l 10s, £2O, £lB (2-), £l7, £ls 10s (2), £9 10s, £7 10s, and £6. They report better inquiry each -week as the season advances. One spring carter brought £22. The light horses for,ward were a medium lot only, and sold at low prices, viz., £lO ss, £7 10s, £6 10s, and £5 10s.
