THE LABOUR MARKET. Firmness characterises the iron market. The mer- chants' stocks are exhausted, and they now have to purchase from makers. There is great inquiry for manufacturing iron, and in all districts home and foreign demands are on the increase. The advance of cotton during the week is a new feature, and it has taken the manufactures in Lanca- shire by surprise. They, together with the spinners, have raised their prices, and the mills are kept running full time. The woollen trade during the past week has been better business, both as regards the home and foreign departments, is now moderately active, and prices are steady. In the hosiery and lace trades there is anima- tion. The boot and shoe ti-ade at all the centres is very busy, workman in all parts having received an advance of wages. All the industries of London are fairly well employed. At all the dockyards there is great activity, and addi- tional hands are being taken on.
