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.
