Friday Morning, Moy IO.?We have to notice a. great diminution in the numbers of fut ftock pass- ing downwards, chiefly in consequence of thc low prices still ruling in Melbourne. Many of the set- tlers have determined on holding back their stock rather than sacrifice them, ond os the season still" continues line, the cattle will improve rather than deteriorate. We hear of one settler on the Mur- rumbidgee, who ls busily employed in boiling down nil his inferior cattle; mid if more of the settlers were to follow his example, the step would certainly tend to do good. The large quantities of inferior "fat"cattle sent lo market must operate prejudi- cially ou the sale of the better class of stock. The demand for store stock, although limited, lins scarcely fallen od', while we hove no arrivals to re- cord. Store sheep oro still scarce and inquired for.
