MARKETS. CATTLE. DERBY, July 5th.—A holiday market. Fair show of cattle, but trade favoured butchers, demand being quiet and prices rather easier. Good show of mutton best light-weights being in rather better request, but ewes and heavy-weights were easier bought. Lambs were sold in favour of buyers, but pigs were a very firm market, demand being in excess of the supply. SHREWSBURY, August lst.-At this special sale 1,167 store cattle were offered, but trade showed a great alteration from the last special sale, being just as slow as it was then keen, and very few cattle were sold. A few two-year-old Herefords and one bunch of Devon steers made up to 40s. per live cwt., but the general run of prices for the Herefords was about 39s., although not many were sold at this price dealers being unwilling to accept the lower prioes offered. Some useful half-meated Irish bullocks could be bought at about 37s., although one lot of this class was bought in at 38s. Younger Irish oattle not so forward in condition, sold at 35s. to 36s., but hero again dealers, having bought dear, were un- willing to sell at a loss, and, although there were several buyers present, not many sales were effect- ed. Sheep were a very sharp trade. a bunch of Shropshire lambs in good condition making 35s. pach. LEICESTER, August 2nd.—Only a small supply of store cattle, but there was practically no trade, dealers not being willing to sell at lower rates.

Store pigs in good request, previous rates being again maintained. SALFORD, August 5th.—Nearly 1,500 fat cattle in the market, but, with only a limited demand, trade was slow, with prices showing a downward tendency.
