CATTLE. NOTTINGHAM, SATURDAY.âOur market was pretty well sup- plied with beef, which changed hands at prices ranging from 6!d. to 7d. per lb. Mutton a slow sale, and quite as dear. Very little doing for pork, which chauged hands at 7d. to 7!d. Veal scarce, and high in price. METROPOLITAN, MONDAY.âThe total imports of foreign stock into London last week amounted to 6,456 head. In the corresponding week in 1869 we received 2,925; in 1868,1,211; in 1867, 7,456; and in 1866, 6,816 head. The arrival of both Beasts and Sheep to this morning's market were moderately ex- tensive; but the supply of really choice animals was short. This fact, coupled with the higher prices cutrent for dead meat this morning, imparted a firmer tone to the trade; but there was not much activity in the market. From our own grazing district? the arrivals of Beasts were comparatively small; and those from Norfolk showed a decided falling-off in condition. Our top quotations of 5s. 2d. must be regarded as quite an ex- treme figure for even the best Scots and Crosses; the more general price for really good Beasts being 5s. per 81b. From Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, and Cambridgeshire we received about 1,150 Scots and crosses; from other parts of England, including Lincolnshire, 620 of various breeds; from Scotland, 195 Scots and crosses; and from Ireland, about 820 oxen. With sheep the market was fairly supplied, and a good proportion of the arrivals was clipped. There was a better tone in the trade than on Monday last, and really choice Sheep in the wool realized a trifle more money. Best Southdowns may be quoted at 5s. 8d. to 5s. 10d. per 81b. Lambs were very dull. There was a large supply for the early season, and prices re- ceded to about 7s. per SIb. Calves and Pigs were inactive on barely former terms. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.âThe stock on offer consisted of 2,80o beasts and 7,w9 sheep. There were fewer beasts than last wt>ek; sheep about the same. The quality of both was of a better class. Buyers were numerous, but sales slow. Nearly all sold at the close. QllOtations :-Best beasts, 71cl. to 8d.; second best, 6!d. to 7 £ d.; inferior, 4d. to 6d.; sheep, 7d. to 9d. per lb.
