J CATTLE. This market was supplied with State cattle this morning and Western loto found no market here. The quality was a big improyement oyer last week, and quite an increase in the number was noted, consequently buyers had the greater advantage and prices were off from 50c tp $1 per cwt., and consequently there was considerable soreness among drovers who had some really fine lots which they were compelled to sell at loas. We quote : Choice beeves, shipping ateers and heifers, weighing from 1,200 to 1,500 lbs. ■ tú 00 a 6 38 Qood butchers' steera and heifers, averaging 1,000 to 1,100 lbs., 4 00 a 4 75 Working cattle, well fatteried, averaging 1,000 to 1,500 lbs., 4 00 a 5 00 Cows, common to choice, 4 00 a 5 00 Stockers' and packers' medium steers, and heifers, in decent flesh, 800 to 1,000 lbs., 4 00 a 4 50 HILCH C0W3. There were few in the market this week, and these were so much improved by the better feed they have been having that holders were aaking and obtained higher prices; the poorest kind of a scallawag brought $30a35, while a aale was noted of 1 young cow and calf not more than onefourth grade, rather below size (scarcely medium), for $44. With these high views buyers were driven away from the market.
