At the sale following, there was a large attendance of buyers, from a large area, pur- chases being made to go into Lancashire, Staffordshire", and Cheshire. The biddings were. brisk, and the opinion was freely ex- pressed that a most satisfactory trade was met, especially so for cattle, all being sold with the exception of two lots There was a large entry oi sheep and pigs; extra ac- commodation having to be provided, but the demand was hardly so good as expected. Taken altogether, the show of stock would rival any seen in the district. The numbers and quality of the stock shown in this market improves every Sale, and it is now generally felt that the Abergele Smithfield has bee.orne a necessity to the growers and feeders of stock in the district. Mr Sheffield. in open- ing his remarks at the commencement of the sale, stated that Mrs Rowley Conwv. through her agent, Mr W. Conwy Bell, would give prizes of C5, Z3, and £1, at the Christmas Sale, next year. This should further en- courage the fanners in the district to keep their stock, and show it at this sale. The opening sale of the New Yf'.a.r, takes place on Monday, January 9th.
