The fair of Moy, held on Friday, May 4th, was very largely supplied with horses of every description, and the buyers for the dragoons succeeded in marking large purchases. Some high-priced horses were shown but not sold, the principal dealers from Belfast and Dublin not choosing to submit to the sellers’ demands. A good many harness and saddle horses found purchasers in parties from Armagh, and the surrounding neighborhood, for summer use, and the exceedingly high price of everything good was fully maintained. In the cattle fair the price of beef was high, but store cattle were rather a drug in the market, for which the backward state of the grass fully accounts.
