TRADE REPORT. The Guardian, reporting upon the state of the trade at Tuesday's, market in Manchester, says :â" Thore has ap- peared a little more cheerfulness in the market to-day which, indeed, have been slightly showing itself durin-' the preceding two or three days, arising very much from a, declining tendency in the price of core, and a somewhat easier state of money matters. This has given an appear- arice of increased steadiness to prices. Of course sellers become for the moment at least, less inclined to accent low offers than they were before the improved feelin^ arose- This is especi vlly the case with those who had pre- viously sold pretty freely As to certain descriptions of yarns, too, it may be said that something like a touch of firmness has been imparted to them, by an increase of purchases for Germany and Holland, occasioned by the near approach of the period when the rivers are usually frozen up. These orders are.indeecL individually but sm;>lL and are not given out except on condition of"being deli vered immediately. This condition, which many spinners are too well engaged to be able to comply with, affords an advantage in dealing with the merchants to those who can comply with it. Still more partially, there are sninnings, such as 16's pincops and 30's cop twist and weft, which are favourably affected in the same direction, by that stoppage of eupply which the strike in this city has oc- casioued. But in these several cases quotations remain unchanged and so, indeed, they do in yarns at large while, however, to a considerable extent, the actual bias .is practically found to be still against the producers. The aggregate of sales is moderate. Goods have shared in the influence of the two ca-uses first named, but not in that of the others. Prices are unaltered since last week for the manufacturers continue to get rid of their productions, and the late extensive operations are still felt in more or less of unfinished contracts." REDUCTION IN THE PRICE OF SUGAR.âInferior Brazil sugar, that was selling afc 7d. per lb., can now be obtained at 5Ad., and West India sugar of the best quality can be had at from 6d. to-Cid., refined lump at 7d. to 7 I,ll., and crytallised Demerara at 7d. per lb. THE 1-EON AND COAL TRADES.âThe reports from the district as to the state of the iron trade are of a most satis- factory character there has been a slight failing off in the demand for sheets, but for all other descriptions the or- ders are well kept up. For all the favourite marks, the price declared last quarter-day is firmly maintained, and except in the ease of malleable iron, there has been very little un- derselling, surprisingly so, having in view the state of the money market, which has been a serious drawback on the trade. Pig iron is not so readily sold as it was six weeks ago, and &n opinion is prevalent that the price will be lower before Christmas but that it will rally with the opening of the new year, there cannot be a doubt, so large is the demand for manufactured iron of all descriptions. The reduction of the import duty by the Spanish Govern- ment, will give au impetus to the trade with that quarter. Already a. similar modification by the French Government as been beneficially felt, several buyers from France T 1UP in the district in the couise of the past week fnrtni^K*3 °f tlle (-'ist}i°t is a fraction lower than it was a matprf.l vesP0Ct °f all other descriptions of out inv | {esPe°la% c°al), lhe price is kept up, and with- remarkabwTr /P' trade is jntrt fho i- ^r.ls"-> there is a considerable supply coming; Field it i«1S i' ^ut of tllat raisei1 npon the "Cannock for domestic °+7 ?rl-v ascertained that it is better adapted lrU*Ce U?e" Thl'0^0^ the district whom full re, W°'" arul members of the trade in considered, busin^S^0 PhCBfi aU tMug8 satisfactory state. in the district are in a very GLASGOW.
