The catalogues comprised the fol lowing quantities and descriptions, viz. — 12,973 Australian, 137 South Australian, 2,173 Port Phillip, 224 Swan River, 3,727 Van Diemen's Land, 972 Cane, 7 New Zealand, and 2,123 foreign, forming a total' of 22,376 bales. It was feared the unprecedented large quantity to be offered would depress the market, but the stock in band of foreign wool under 2s. fid. per lb. being small, and the chance of a further supply being small, added to the very favourable weather, caused an unusual large attendance of buyers from all parts, and the whole realized prices fully equal to July rales Much regret was expressed at finding a great falling oft' in the quality and condition of the generality of the Australian flocks; a large quantity was much injured by being full of burrs an...
