The market opened close and uucertain, bttt as tho morning progressed prices were well suatained, liased upon the previous week's decline. Buyer and seller tlms mntuaüy airived at an understandmg whích accelerated traufactions and brought lols directly into murket. Butchers' stock was first sought after, culling for a flrst class ftrticle being penoitted. William Smith secured tlie choiceat heads, being six in number, averaging 1,200 lbs, and sold for $4.

Prices wcre also better sustained this week. At the close of last week packers' Iota were closed out at 13 66 and $3 85 $3 50 being the price advauced but refused by such as could hold lots ; this week the advanced prices approximated $4. Block hogs were also in fair demand at about $3 80 and $3 90. The decrease in prices does not seem to effect shipments liere, whic}i reach a quantity correspondmg to other weeks. SHEEP Still arrive ín large quantities, quite surprising to old operators who predicted a fallmg off this scasou. Shipments here are now made from localities which have not participated in the market heretofore, and in this, as in cattle and hogs, the inadequate room is the best exponent. The market opened close, buyers and sellers fighting shy ot rulings but becoming flrmly established by noon. Choice lots, mutton sheep, averaging 90 lbs, brought i'.i 75 and 84 ; mixed lots, $2 50 per hcad, and inferior quahty $3 and $3 12 1-2. Luts were nearly all closed out at noun to-day.
