Baltimore Cattle Market.
Baltimore, Jan. 11.
--The offerings at the scales yesterday footed up 875 head, of which 175 held were driven to Philadelphia
, and the balance (700 head) were taken by Baltimore butchers and packers at prices ranging from $2.50 to $4.50, and averaging $3.50 per 100 lbs. This average shows an advance of 12½ cts. per 100 lbs. over last Thursday's rate.
There was a fair supply of live hogs in the pens to-day, hut the market for them is rather dull.
Sales were made to the butchers of good to prime lots at $7 to $7.50 per 100 lbs., but the packers are not in market at these figures.
Sheep were in good supply to-day, and prices ruled firm.
Sales were made at $4 to $5, gross.
