I TRADE REPORTS. [FROM 01fR GWN HKFORTERS, TRADE CORRESPOV- DENTS, TEE PRESS ASSOCIATION," THE" CENTRAL NEWS," ÂND OTHER SOURCES.] -<» THE COAL AND IRON TRADES OF SOUTH WALES. Coal shipments have again proceeded with every rapidity, and the tone of the coal market evinces a slow but sure tendency to advance. Last week there were clearedrom Cardiff, 119,803 tons Newport, 23,998 tons; and Swansea, 26,239 tons of coAL At the former port, where last week there was a. slight, but perceptible, weakening with regard to the secondary qualities, the demand for ready shipment has been latterly much more brisk. House qualities are firm, there being an all-round good inquiry for this descrip- tion of coal. Patent fuel is likewise in good request, and the run upon pitch tends tc enhance the cost and value of fuel. With respect to im- ports, there continues to be no very areat anima- tion in iron ore, the arrivals having recently been very regular, and prices f o.h. hqve a disposition to decline. In pitwood and mining timber a similar movement is noticeable, but in a much more marked degree, there having been within the past ten days a numerous list of arrivals from the Baltic, France, and other places. The iron, steel, and tin-plate trades of the locality continue to be well employed. In the chartering market things are rather quiet. PROJECTED NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF MINH- OWNERS AND MINERS. — At a meeting of the Federated Union of Miners for the Midland Counties held at Wolverhampton on Tuesday, it was announced that the Mining Association of Great Britain were arranging for a national con- ference of employers and employes, to be shortly held in London, and attended by deputations from all the mining districts throughout the kingdom. at which a project for the regulation of wages would be broached, which would have the effect of benefiting the whole mining industry of the country. AMERICAN IRON MARKKTS. — The Ivovmoiufer publishes the following cable dispatch, dated New York, Feb. 3:—There has been a quiet but steady market for all kinds of iron and hardware during the week, the demand being perfectly legitimate, and emanating almost entirely from actual con- sumers, whose requirements are upheld by the volume of business throughout the country. Scotch pig iron continues in steady request; prices are lirm and sales large. A better inquiry exists for scrap iron and old rails, and some good sales are reported at higher rates. Business in steel rails is steadily declining, and prices also continue to weaken, to-day's quotation for prompt delivery being$55. Contrary to general expectation, tin- plates have hot improved appreciably, for, although a fair amount of business is doing, prices are nominally weaker.
