AMERICAN CATTLE. The Times 01 Tuesday published the following letter Sir,-At the present time of agricultural depression, when neither landlord nor tenant knows what is the fate that awaits them, it may be some satisfaction to be informed what is the opinion in America as to the future range of prices of cattle fit to be exported to this country. The opinion I quote below is one formed by a gentleman of muca intelligence connected with our grazing counties, who is now in America, and who possesses no ordinary means of information. He writes as follows :— Canada has little or no more stock to spare, another month will clear out the surplus stock of the Dominion but there is any amount to come from the West, especially from Texas, at a price but the present absurdly low rates can only be continued in a time of extreme depression. The best opinion 11 that the value of English-grown meat will not ulti- mately be materially affected." This opinion is valuable and may tend to allay the present panic as to the future value of cattle but there is no doubt a general revival of the world's trade, and consequent increased consumption would bring about a spsedy result. The consumer may think this cold comfort, but that unhappy individual does not seem to have materially gained in the price of meat by the great reduction which has takenwisce in that of fat cattle during the last year. It appears to be one of those things which nobody can understand, that, generally speaking, butchers ad- here to much the same prices now as they did a J ear since, while graziers and feeders find so great a reduc- tion. America is, no doubt, the land of plenty, but even there neither corn nor cattle will be permanently grown and exported except at a remunerative price. The fluctuations in the price of corn exported from America during the last 25 years ef free trade should prevent our giving way to panic. Much more does this apply to cattle, so distant and so costly, and so difficult to move.
