LONDON PROVISION, SATURDAY.âThe butter market con- tinues very slow, with good supplies; all kinds of foreign being pressed for sale, prices have further declined, and are very irre- gular, according to qualities. The bacon market has ruled firm, with a good demand; early in the week, Hamburg advanced 2s.$cwt, and later, Irish also advanced 2s.

WOLVERHAMPTON IRON TRADE.â WEDNKSDAV. Shyness characterized the iron market this afternoon. The continual uncertainty touching the war, combined with the absence of strength in several quotations, make men hesitate to buy beyond pressing requirements. In the open market prices were declared unaltered. Some works are resuming in part. Most activity is observable where gasometer plates, girder plates, best sheets, and Government requisites in large sections are being turned out. Stocks of pigs are increasing. Furnaces producing best pigs are being prepared to be laid off, but preparations are in progress to increase the make of medium sorts.
