Baltimore Cattle Market.

Baltimore,April 5.--The beef cattle offered at the scales yesterday amounted to 650 head, of which 100 head were driven to Philadelphia, 50 were left over unsold, and the balance (500 head) were taken by Baltimore butchers at prices ranging from $2.75 to $4.50, and averaging $3.75 per 100 lbs., being a decline of 12½ cents per 100 lbs. on last Thursday's rate. The general tone of the market was weak, and it was rather difficult to effect sales. There was a fair supply of live hogs in the pens to-day, but the market was dull, and sales were made to the butchers at $6.50 to $7.25 per 100 lbs. for good to prime lots. These figures show a decline of 25 cents for 100 lbs. Sheep were in fair supply, but the market for them was dull. Sales were made at $4.50 to $5.50 gross.
