MARKETS AND FAIRS. I LIVERPOOL CATTLE, MONDAY. -The supply of cattle in market to-day was smaller than last week. Notwithstanding this the demand was slow, and prices in sympathy with country markets were lower. Sheep shewn in increased numbers. Trade, contrary to expectations, was very dragging, and to effect sales lower prices were accepted. Quotations :—Beef, 6id. to 4. mutton, 9d. to6d. per lb. LONDON CATTLE, MONDAY. To-day's supply of beasts compared with Monday last shewed I a decrease of 1,900. For both prime and second quality fat beasts trade ruled dull with a decline in value in most cases to the extent of folly 2d. per l 81bs. Trade for Irish beasts was also sluggish, a decline of 2d. to 4d. per 81bs. having to be made to effect sales. Fat butchering cows and bulls met poor inquiry, and difficulty was experienced in ob- taining late values. Top prices per 81bs.80st. to 90st. polled Aberdeens 4s. 10d., Devons 4s. 6d.; 90st. to 95st.

Sheep trade extremely dull at a decline of 3d. per 81bs., chiefly attributable to overstocked state of dead meat market. No Scotch sheep offered, season being now about over. Irish 2d. per 8lbs. lower. Lambs met very limited inquiry, salesmen having to accept 2d. per 81bs. less money to effect sales. Calf trade nominal.

Der stone BRADFORD WOOL, MONDAY -The market is very quiet. In strong cross-breeds it is slightly weak, and decidedly irregular. Merinoes and fine- cross- breeds are steady. Nothing doing in English., wools. Mohair and Alpam. are marking time. Con- tinuance of Russian trouble disturbs the export yarn trade. Mohairs are quiet, but particulars come freely, and spinners generally are busy. In the- piece trade manufacturers are fairly well occupied, especially makers of bought goods. SALFORD CATTLE, TUESDAY.-Supply of cattle about the same as last week; trade slow.; rather fewer sheep, quiet business. Large show of calves, trade worse.

MANCHESTER CHEESE, TUESDA.Y.The trade in home-made cheese to-day has been chiefly for small parcels for filling up, most retailers having laid in stocks in anticipation of Christmas some weeks ago.

Canadian cheese The market is a shade quieter owing to, the near approach of the holidays, but prices are as- firm as ever, and the next change is most likely to. be up- wards.
