No change in the price of sheep has occurred since last market. Few Iota were offered, and those were sold at close iigures. The disease commonly known as the "scab," an epidemie occasionally occurring among the shoep, is said to be prevailing, but by most drovers regarded as a cry to still further depress the tliflrket in the East.
