■Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co. report that, they held their weekly sale in the Prince of Wales yards on Saturday last, and had rather a small entry of horses, only 25 coming- forward. These comprised several good draughts suitable for ordinary farm ■work. The attendance was small and the demand slack, which is no doubt to be accounted for, to a great extent, by the number of clearing sales held almost daily for some time past. They also offered the Clydesdale stallion “Black Champ,’’ but failed to place him by auction. Enquiries have sine© been made, and he will probably change hands within a 'few days. Hacks and harness horses were poorly represented, although there were inquiries for reliable upstanding . •sorts. They sold draughts at £3O to £3B 10s, for sound young animals, aged and ordinary £lB to f£2s, old and stiff not in demand excepting at low rates. In hacks and light harness horses, useful sorts brought £l4 to £lO, weedy and aged £6 to £3.
