THE MARKETS. METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET.—MONDAY. The eattle trade is in a quiet state, and notwithstanding the warm weather prices are well maintained. There is no inclination to purchase freely. Fresh supplies are about the average. The receipts of beasts from our own grazing districts were moderate, and from Scotland and Ireland Se short. The trade was firm, without animation, and the best Scots and crosses realised 5s 10d to 6s per 81b. From Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex we received about 800 from the Midland and Home Counties, 1,000; from Scot- land, 37; and from Ireland, 100 head. The foreign side of the market wa3 moderately supplied with beasts. There were a few American and a good show of Danish, for which there was a fair demand at full prices. The sheep pens held about the average number of sheep. The in- quiry was steady, and prices ruled firm. The best Downs and half-breds made 6s 6d to 6s 8d per 81b. Calves and pigs were quiet at about late prices. At Deptford, there were about 650 beasts and 6.000 sheep and lambs.

HOP. The hop market is decidedly strong. Business is not ani- mated, and all fine samples command full prices. The accounts from the plantations are very unsatisfactory, owing to a further increase of vermin.
