PENRITH. October ?8th. - The fat fair was held in Sandgate, when the market
was exceedingly well stocked with cattle and sheep. The trade was in
consequence dull, and prices bad, a downward tendency especially for cattle.
Indeed of this class, inferior animals with difficulty sold for 21s per
stone, and although animals of a better sort brought 22s 6d., upwards of
half the number shown, left the market unsold. There was a better sale for
sheep, and a clearance was effected at the following prices: - ewes, 4d;
Lambs, 4-3/4d. to 5d.; weathers, 4d to 4-3/4d. per lb. sinking the offal.
WELSH CATTLE. - Cattle fairs, since our last publication, have been held at
Newport, and Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire. They were both attended but by
a small number of buyers for the English fairs; the few however bought
rather freely, but at low rates; about 250 head were sent off by four
dealers, they were chiefly small two-year-old steers and heifers, at from £2
10s to £4 10s a head.
