METROPOLITAN CATTLE MARKET LONDON, MONDAY, August 6.-The lupply of foreira stock on sale here to-day was tolerably extensive and in fair condition. Most of the French beasts were very srood. Sriles progressed slowly. on rather easier term*. With home-fed beasts we were fairly supplied. The grass-fed stock came to hand in prime condition. The arrivals from Ireland and Scotland were very limited. For all breeds the demand was in a sluggish state, at a decline in the quotations compared with Monday last of 2d per Sib. The extreme top price was 5s 6d per Bib. The arrivals from Lincolnshire, and Northamptonshire, amounted to about 1,300 shorthorns from other psrts of England, 600 of various breeds, from Scotland, 49 Scots and crosses; and from Ireland, 50 oxen, &c. The show of English sheep was tolerably good, and most breeds were very prime. Downs and half-breds, in- cluding prime Leicesters, &c, moved off freely at fully last week's currency but most other breeds were a slow inquiry, on former terms. We had a dull trade for lumhs-t,he supply of which was on the increase—on lower tt'rms. viz, from 6* 8d to 7s 8d per SIb. C ilvee were in fair averdge supply, and sluggish request, at last week's pric, s. In pigs very little was doing, neverthe- less the quotations were supported. Per tibt. to tink the 084.
