BRISTOL, Wednesday.—(From Mr. Francis Barnard's Bacon A good demand for nearly all cuts for shipment, both forward and prompt, and prices are stiffeniug. On the spot an active trade is passing, and holders are firm. Cheese has shown but little alteration during the past week. Markets in America and Canada are steady, and importers on this side are scarcely pre- pared to pay the advanced rates. Butter Choice par- cels still command their value, but. Irish being cheap and plentiful, other grades are somewhat lower. Lard has fluctuated, but quotations are nominally unaltered. Beef quiet, but steady. Flour: Cables report a light export demand. owing to American values being too high for the European markets. There is, however, more disposition shown by millers to meet buyers. On the spot a fair consumptive trade has been done at late rates. BUTTER. CARMARTHEN, Saturday.—There was a large supply of butter in the market to-day, which sold at from lljd to lljd per lb. for ordinary tub butter, and from Is to Is OilLd for fresh lattermath.
