METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET. LONDON, MONDAY, June It.-There was rather al extensive show of foreign beasts here to-day in fair con- dition. The supply of foreign sheep was good, whilst there was a fair number ot calves on offer. Beasts rooted off slowly, on rather lower terms; but sheep and calves were steady in price. The arrivals of beasts fresh up from our own grazing districts were again moderate, bIt in excellent condition. Although the demand was by no means active, prime Bmall breeds commanded more money than last week. A few breeds sold at 5s 6<j to 5s 8d but heavy beasts produced lrom 5s 2d to per 81b. There were no arrivals either from Ireland Or Scotland. The Herefords and Devons were very Sille' able. From Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, and Cambridge' shire, we received 1,2,;0 Scots and shorthorns; and frolo other parts of England, 500 of various breeds. The siP'j ply of sheep was tolerably good. Prime Downs half-breds changed hands steadily, at full quotatiolle; but heavy sheep were a slow sale, at late rates. The tOP figure was 6s per 81b. Prime Lincollll1 reaiised 5s 4d to 5s 6d per 81b. Prime lambs moved off freely at 8s per 81b t but inferior lambs were a dull sale on former terms. T 6 supply was only moderate.
