I I DAUBY. [from otth owk cobbbspondent. j i A few remarks on produce generally may be of interest to some of your readers. For butcher's produce -the market is rather de pressed, hides especially are lower, and there is. a disposition to hold until prices advance. Yet compared with Brisbane and' Sydney markets the local quotations are good, being as follows :—Tallow, .£25 to £26 per ton ; sheepskins, with ten months' wool, 6d. to 6 id. per lb., according to quality ; and well cured hides, 3£d. per lb.; dry hides, little or no demand for. A large quantity of inferior woolled skins have lately changed hands here at 5<L per lb. About two years ago quite a brisk trade was done In wallaby and kangaroo skins, but none are coming forward now. I believe this is principally owing to the diffi culty in getting them into the market in thoroughly sound condition. Bacon, cured on the farms near Dalby, realises from 8cL; to 1-OcL per lb.; ditto cheese, 9<L, and several tons...
