Johnston, Miles, and Co.'s Report.)—Extra India Mess Beef There has been a better inquiry during the week owing to Christmas packed beef now coming forward buyers have more con- fidence in the quality. Packet is without change; buyers here are very anxious to get a good quality of Packet, but it seems almost impossible to get it at pre- sent. unless at extreme figures. Pork: Although the sales have been very trifling, still packers are not in clined to make any concession, in fact they ask more money for future deliveries. Bacon With the lightl supplies of hogs and strong American advices, holders are firm, and have been able to establish a slight ad- vance on last week's prices. Should receipts of hogs continne light there will. 110 doubt, be a further advance. According to trustworthy information the crop of hogs for 1883 is going to be no heavier than 1882, which would indicate that prices are at present on a safe basis. Hams are coming forward very sparingly, but in tufficient quantity to satisfy the demand. Lard: There is nothing or little doing.
