SALE OF SHORT-HORNED CATTLE. The celebrated herd of short-horned cattle known as the Grand Duchesses and Grand Dukes, the property of the late Mr. Joseph Hegan, of Daw- pool, near Birkenhead, were sold June 7th by Mr. Strafford, auctioneer, at Willis's-rooms, King-street, St. James's-square. With the exception of Imperial Oxford the entire herd is descended from the celebrated cow Duchess 51st, bred by Mr. Bates, at Kirklevington, who purchased Duchess 1st, at Mr. Charles Collings's sale in 1810, the family having originally been obtained from the ancestors of the Duke of Northumberland. Cattle of this stock have gained the highest honours in the showyard, and fetched the highest prices at public sales. The cattle remain at Dawpool, where they had been inspected by intending purchasers. The cows were sold in lots with numbers which refer to Coate's Herd Book. The first lot (5, 7, and 8), sold for 1,900 guineas the second lot (9, 13, and 18), for 1,300 guineas; the third lot (10, 15, and 17), for 1,800 guineas; and the fourth lot (11, 12 and 14), for 1,200 guineas. The 12 cows thus fetched X6,6 10 the average price being X542 10s. They were all bought by Mr. E. L. Betts, of preston-hall, Kent. The bulls were sold separately. Imperial Oxford was sold for 450 guineas, also to Mr Betts; Grand Duke 6th was sold for 130 guineas to Mr. Bland, of Coelby-hall, Lincoln Grand Duke 9th for 310 guineas, to Mr. T. Walker of Birswell-hall, Coventry; Grand Duke 10th, for 600 guineas, to the Duke of Devon- shire and Grand Duke 13th for 100 guineas to Captain Gunter, of Wetherby-grange. The five bulls thus brought XI,660 19s., their average price being S333 18s. the total price of the 17 head of cattle was X8,179 10s.-Times, June 8th
