[Per "Stab's" Pigeon Express.]


The sale to-day waa held under most auspicious circum3timceß, tho weather being lovely, and the attendance good. Store Sheep. — There waß a very limited entry, and the few lines entered do not form any criterion of the market.

Fat Sheep.— The pens wero well filled, over 6000 being in, of which there waa a fair proportion of good butcher's mutton and freezers. Best quality merino wethers went as high as 17s Id, while the primest cross-bred wether mutton brought fully up to last week's quotations.

Lamb. — One small pen of lambs from fche farm of Mr Templeton, at Eiccarton, was soon snapped up, 16s and 21s being obtained for these delicate luxuries.

Fat Cattle. — There were about 150 head sold, the best of which wero from tho North Island, and though they looked decidedly the worse for the journey they brought the top price, up to .£lO 15s being given for these large-framed oxen. The sale of inferior quality beef waa limited, but the price remained firmer than last week despite the larger entry. Mr Garforth's champion fat heifer was sold for JBIS ss, and was subsequently photographed in company with her new owner, Mr John Mann.

Store Cattle. — There was a large number of dry cows, bulls, and odd lots of store cattle, besides a number of dairy cows, for all of whicb there was a better demand, the result being that most of the lines were Bold.

Pigs. — Another heavy entry p£ porkers and small bacon pigs met with a slight check, as buyers held off a trifle in consequence of the unfavourable state of the weather, which changed about 3 p.m. to a. South-west gale.
