Trade Intelligence. WOLVERHAMPTON IRON TRADE.—WEDNESDAY. The iron market was inactive. Great firmness was displayed by the tin-plate makers, who are all busy. They refused offers at anything under 2s. ;¡jJ box advance upon the late minimum. Excellent enquiries are upon the market for bridge and roofing work, and for heavy foundry products. Two lots comprise to- gether 11,000 tons. Miscellaneous finished iron was difficult to sell, and the works have slightly less to do than last week. Sales of best pigs might have been effected for forward delivery dot current rates, but makers declined the terms. Best domestic coal was in limited supply. MINERAL REPORT.—MANCHESTER, SATURDAY. Messrs. Berger Spence and Co., in their weekly report, say- A most restricted attention has been bestowed on minerals of every description during the week. As a rule, consumers are fully stocked, and supplies are far too plentiful. Where a dis- position to operate is evinced, only the most limited quantities are the subjects of negotiation. Brimstone remains compara- tively inactive. The week's business has been almost entirely confined to the exchange of small parcels, which have mostly changed hands on easier terms to buyers. Iron ore has been in decreased demand. The arrivals of foreign ore do not exhibit much decline, but the requirements of the home article are de- cidedly weak. Quotations are unchanged; still, it is possible to underbuy those current. THE CROPS AND THE CORN TRADE. The Mark-Lane Express says:—The season has not changed in its main characteristice in the past week, remaining frosty, with the wind north-easterly. For odd work on the farm the period has been favourable, the land surface being hard and clean for wheels and horses; but for tillage purposes every day has failed to help the agriculturist. Stackyards have been largely worked down to supply stock, to keep them in condition, so that many districts are likely to be bare of fodder unless there be a mild and early spring. The long winter hindrance to field work n.ust make spring operations active. Deliveries of English wheat have been fully up to the average of the last ten years during the past fortnight. America, since the harvest, has ruled the English market quotations. Under these circum- stances, farmers have decided to sell freely in competition with the foreigner, and if they have found prices low they have recog- nized the uselessness of holding for an advance. Prices such as 38s. lid. and 39s. Id. must cause farmers to consider very anxiously the whole question of wheat cultivation. French farmers have held grain very tenaciously, but that policy has not proved of advantage to them.
