THE AMERICAN FOOD SUPPLY. During last week the arrivals of live stock at Liver- pool from Americashow an increase over previous weeks, though in fresh meat there was a falling off when com- pared with the former week. The number of live oxen landed last week was 631, and of sheep 333, all of which were in good condition. There were also 16 horses. The fresh meat that came to hand numbered 2,178quar- teis. Ttiegreatincreasewhichhasrecentlytakenplacein the export of live stock, fresh meat, and mutton from the UnitedStates isshown in statistics whichhavejust come to hand. The value of these exports during the first six months of 1876 amounted to 1,755,191 dols. while for the six months just closed the total was 5,58^,675 dols., or an increase during the latter period of 3,830,484. This of itself is sufficient to indicate the thriving nature of this new branch of trade, which has now been placed on a permanent footing, and which is rapidly extend- ing, especially in the importation of live cattle and sheep. The figures above do not represent the value of the meat imported solely into England, though it is considered that very little has been sent to other countries.
