AT Cyfartefa WonKs a day or two sines a notice was posted up requiring that a month's notice ehall be given and received by all workmen pitvious to their leaving Messrs. Crawohay'a employ. This is a rule that was in forco previous to the works being stopped, and the nocioa haa apparently been iseued in order to show the men th",t they are working u. der the same rules aa bitherio existed.

THE Cokk TRADE at DERI-Owing to the creeent increased demand for ooke, it is unde stood that the Rhymrey Irou Company hilovè negotiated for the Deri Coke Ovens, or, as they are termed, Morgan's Ovena," with a view of relighting them at onoa, so that they may have a larger Bupply of coke for conantuition at the Rhjmney ironworks.

An extraordinary buM- ness is being done in hoops, and some exceptionally large orders have been given. Coal is firm.
