WOOL.-—There is still virtually no change to chronicle with regard to this branch of trade. Holders of wool keep to their stocks with the firm- ness of despair, and as a rule refuse offers they con- 8ider inadequate. What little business takes place is at easier rates, but exact figures are difficult to arrive at, as sellers do hot care to confess to yielding. These cases, however, are exceptional, but, to meet buyers, are unavoidable. Reports from the ultimate markets are still very disappointing and discouraging, so that spinners' position by no means improves, and unless they (5an obtain some concession from^holders of wool, nothing but loss would ensue from contracts taken at the present Tange of prices. The continued disturbed state of politics increases the depression, so that the outlook is still most uncertain and unsatisfactory. Downs, Sid to lOd; Kents, 8d to 8!d; half-breds, Sd. CAMBRIDGE CATTLE.—Not so many store beasts as last week, and trade slow. Trade slow for fat beasts at lower rates. Fat sheep a fair show, prices as last Week. Stores not so many to hand.
