CATTLE. NOTTINGHAM, SATURDAY.âThe show of beef was only mode- rate, and the finest qualities made from 6id. to 7d. per lb. Mutton and veal at a little more money; while pork was held for 7d. to 7.d. DONCASTER, SATURDAY.âThere were 94 beasts, 2 calve-, 26 pigs, and 401 sheep and lambs at market. For the few beasts on offer the trade generally was slow. Late prices were maintained Sheep were only a poor show. There was a fair attendance of buyers, and all cl6&red off at tbo closo. A very poor BUDDIV of pigs. 3 NORWICH, SATURDAY.âThere was not quite so large a show of store cattle-Scots, shorthorns, and Irish-on offer here to-day; the sales effected were concluded at about previous rates. Fat beasts, 8s. to 8s. 6d. and 9s. per 141b. The show of sheep was moderate; prices experienced little variation; fat sheep, 9s. to 9s. 6d. per 141b. Little or no alteration in store pigs; fat pork, 8s. to 8s. 6d. per 141b. The foot and mouth disease now presents but little gravity in Norfolk; pleuro-pneumonia still prevails however, in some parts of the county. Upon the whole stock appears to be now somewhat healthier than hitherto. METROPOLITAN, MONDAY.âThe total imports of foreign stock into London last week amounted to 6,009 head. Since we last wrote the cattle trade has continued dull, and the tendency of prices has been downwards. The animals, however, came to hand in good condition, and are generally of good weight and form. The dead meat markets have been well supplied, and this has had a depressing influence upon the demand for live stock. At to-day's market there wag a good show of Beasts, including some fine foreign animals. The Spanish and French beasts were in very excellent condition, while the arrhals from Scot. land were fully up to the average. Trade ruled far from active for all breeds, and the top price for best Scots and crosses was not above 5s. 4d. per 81b. Inferior animals sold on easier terms. From Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, and Cambridgeshire we received about 1,600 Scots and crosses; from other parts of England including Lincolnshire, about 580 of various breeds; from Scot- land, 220 Scots and crosses; and from Ireland, about 6iO oxen, cows, 4c. There was about an average number of Sheep in the T>ens, the condition of which was tolerably good. For all breeds the inquiry was dull, at the late reduction in the quotations. The best Downs and half-breds changed hands at 5s. 6d. to 58. Sd. per 8 b. The Calf trade was dull and inactive; but prices were unchanged. Pigs were unaltered in value. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.âThere were at market 2,870 beasts and 8,243 sheep. The stock on offer was less than last week, and, although the demand was dull, prices were much about the same for both beasts and sheep. Buyers were more plentiful, but, on account of the high prices asked, there was a difficult clearance at the close. Quotations .-âBest beasts, 7!d. to 8d.; second best, 6id. to 7d.; inferior, 4id. to 6d.; sheep, 7d. to 9d. per lb.
