The Duke of Buccleugh has sold five of his farms in Hoddom parish, Dumfriesshire, to Mr. Edward Brook of Hoddom Castle, Dumfriesshire, and Meltham Hall, Huddersfield. The price paid is said to equal thirty years' purchase of the rental. He has also presented a petition to the Court of Session to disentail various lands in Dumfriesshire, Kirkendbrightshire, and Lanarkshire, with a view, it is said, of selling other portions of his estates.
