CHESTER CATTLE, THURSDAY.-A good supply of all descriptions of store stock, but no fat cattle The attendance of buyers was not large, owing to farmers being busy with the harvest. Trade however, except for dairy stock, was not unsatis- factory, and holders, anticipating a speedy improvement in the demand, held very firmly to their prices. A moderate show of sheep, both in quantity and quality, but there was scarcely any enquiry, and quotations were unchanged from those current the past week or two. Prices:- Milch cows, X12 to £ 20; calvers, X13 to 918. barrens, 910 to £12; heifers, JE8 to 913; stirks: X5 to 27; sheep, 18s. to 32s. CHESTER HORSE, THURSDAY.—The supply of horses was large but contained only a small propor- tion of good class, in either the light or heavy horses. Numerous buyers were present, and the demand for anything shewing quality was brisk, and prices satisfactory. For inferior horses trade was slow and quotations very irregular, many lots in these classes remaining unsold. Prices :—Best draught horses, R60 to X75 good cart horses, X35 to iE52 trap horses, 915 to E28 ponies, £5 to E12. CHESTER CBEESE.—This fair was held on Wednesday. Mr. R. Challinor, secretary to the Cheshire Dairy Farmers' Association, reports upon it as follows :—The pitoh was about 55 tons. The attendance of buyers was very good, the Lancashire and Yorkshire districts being well represented. At the opening an improved inquiry was noticeable for fine lots, but the general tone of the market was hardly up to expectations. It may be accounted for by the fact that the bulk of the cheese pitched was somewhat affected by the extreme heat of the last few weeks. However by eleven o'olock a good clearance was effected' at the following pricesCommon, 38s. to 44s medium, 45s. to 48s.; good Cheshire, 50s. to 54a which shews an improvement of 2s. or 3s. on the previous fair. Prices at the corresponding fair last year were 38s. to 57s. per cwt.; pitch, 50 tons. Among the buyers present I noticed representa- tives of the following flrms :-Messrs. J. C.

CHESTER CORN, SATURDAY.—Any old wheat on offer to-day commands an advance of about 6d. per bushel from recent currencies, doubt- less in sympathy with the foreign article which has been excited during the present week, prices having risen considerably. New crop oats of capital quality are shewn. Old oats scarce and bring full rates. All other grain in small supply at steady prices. Indian corn is about 3d. per 2401b. higher. Quotations.- I NSW. CM.
