LIVE STOCK MARKETS.

The total receipts and shipments for last week were as follows:

Received. Shipped. Cattle 38,913 18,801 Calves 216 37 Hogs 169,076 42,205 Sheep 24,595 14,225

CATTLE.—Notwithstanding a reported advance in England, cattle did not improve in prices over Saturday. Indeed, there was a decline of a few cents per hundred. The supplies were large and the quality inferior. Indeed few really fat cattle came in during the week. Eastern markets were reported as over stocked. Shippers and dressed meat operators bought rather freely of common lots. We may quote as follows:

Fancy fat cattle $7 00@ 7 25 Choice to prime steers 6 25@ 6 85 Fair to good shipping steers 5 60@ 6 20 Common to medium steers 4 65@ 5 55 Butcher's steers 4 50@ 5 00 Cows and bulls, common to good 3 25@ 4 50 Inferior cows and bulls 2 30@ 3 20 Stockers 3 50@ 4 50 Feeders 4 25@ 4 75 Milch cows, per head 25 00@55 00 Veal calves, per 100 lbs. 4 00@ 7 25

HOGS.-There were fair receipts on Saturday and Monday—an aggregate of 21,000 head or some 7,000 more than for the same days last week. As city packers are at work again, the market was quite active. They bought about 15,000 head, and shippers took nearly all that were left. Prices advanced from 5 to 10 cents. It may be said in general that the quality of the hogs now coming in is poor. Heavy lots were sold at $5 15@6 25; light hogs brought $5@5 60. Skips and culls $3 25@5.

Note.—All sales of hogs are made subject to a shrinkage of 40 lbs for piggy sows and 80 lbs for stags. Dead hogs sell for 1-1/2c per lb for weights of 200 and over and [Transcriber's Note: blank in original] for weights of less than 100 lbs.

SHEEP.—The supply was sufficient to meet the demand, though considerably less than on Monday of last week. Really choice animals were scarce. Shippers and butchers bought freely. Common lots were dull, bringing $5 25@5 50, while fancy lots sold at $5.75@6. Very inferior sheep sold at $2 50.
