SMITHFIULD. -i MONDAY.—Daring the week ending on Saturday the import of foreign stock into London was on the increase, and somewhat large, even the time of year considered. The total arrival was 6/250 head. Large numbers of beasts and sheep having been landed from the Large numbers of beasts and sheep having been landed from the Rotterdam, and Harlingen steamers this morning, the show of foreign stock was large, but of very middling quality. From our own grazing districts, especially from Lincolnshire and Leicester- shire, the arrivals of beasts fresh up to-day were considerably iu excess of those reported on Monday last; but at least a moiety of them were beneath the middle quality. The attendance of buyers was good, and the primest Seots, ,De vons, Hereford?, &c., moved off steadily at about stationary prices-táe extreme value of the first-named breed being 8s. 8d. to 3s. lOJ. per 81b.; otherwise the beef trade was in a sluggLJl state, and in some instances the quo- tations had a downward tendency. The numbers of sheep were again Oil the increase, and, for the most part, of full average quality. The primest old Downs were disposed of, at last Monday's cur- rencies, viK., 3s. lOd. to 4d. per 81b., being a decline in those of Friday last of 2d. per 8ibs. but all other breeds met a slow in- quiry, at unaltered figures.
