CATTLE. NOTTINGHAM, SATURDAY.—The show of beef was fair, but the demand dull, at prices varying from 63. to 7d. perib. Mutton changed hands at 7d. to 8d. Pork and veal a dull sale, and quite as dear. PETERBOROUGH, SATURDAY.—There was a middling supply of beef on offer, which changed hands at Gd. to 7d. per lb. Mutton in some cases a trifle dearer. Pork was disposed of at high rates. Very little doing in veal; at higher rates. METROPOLITAN, MONDAY.—The total imports of foreign stock into London last week amounted to 7,403 head. In sym- pathy with the heaviness prevalent in the dead meat market the cattle trade at Islington has been in a depressed state to-day, and the tendency of prices has been in favour of buyers. As regards beasts, a fair supply has come to hand, and some good serviceable stock was noticed. For all breeds the trade hAs been dull, and the extreme quotation for the best Scots and crosses has not ex- ceeded 5s. per 81b. In fact this price has been quite exceptional, many really good beasts being disposed of for less money. From Norfolk, Suffilk, Essex, and Cambridgeshire we received about 1,300 Scots and crosses; from other parts of England, 510 of various breeds; and from Ireland, 223 head. The market has been fairly supplied with Sheep. The transactions have been restricted, and prices have ruled in favour of buyers, 6s. per 81b being only occasionally obtained for the best Downs and half- breds, 5s. lOd. being frequently accepted. There has been a moderate inquiry for Lambs, at from 7s. to 8s. 6d. per 8ib. Calves have been quiet, but firm. Pigs have been dull. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.—There were at market 2,395 beasts (of which about 200 were Spanish), and 7,575 sheep. The stock on offer consisted of about 100 fewer beasts and about 1,600 more sheep than last week. The quality of the beasts was only mid- dling; that of the sheep was very good. Although there were many country buyers at the market, sales were slow, and prices were in favour of buyers. A few beasts and sheep left unsold at the close. Quotations:—Best beasts, 7|d. to 7fd.; second best, 6id. to 7d.; inferior, 4id. to 6d.; sheep, 7|d. to 9 £ d- per lb.
