Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co. report :—The attendance at our weekly sale on Saturday was not very large but was composed mostly of buyers, and for sound young draughts there wasi better competition than has been the case for some considerable time. Out of our entry of 38 horses. 21 draughts, three hacks, a nd one spring carter changed hands at prices fully equal to those ruling lately. We sold on account of Mr I). McKenzie, his team of five draughts at up to £35 ; on account other vendors a fcurly ear-old filly at £4O ; one five-year-old do, £36 ; other three and four-year-olds, £34, £33, £32 10s, £3l, £29 10s, and £29 ; aged active horses £2o to £3 5 ; old and low-con-ditioned to £5 : one nice spring carter, 4-year-old, brought £3O. Hacks and light harness horses were again poorly represented, and while upstanding reliable horses are in request, aged and weedy sorts are difficult to place, even at low prices. We quote : good sorts at £lB to £25 superior to £3O, ordinarv £3 4 to '£3 0, weedy to £4. •fe.-tt.
