CLOSING OF A COLLIERY IN NORTH WALES. The whole of thecolliet's and men engaged at the Flint Colliery have received a fortnight's notice of dismissal, it being the intention of the proprietors to close the works in consequence of the expense attendant on getting the coal and the unremunera- tive prices prevailing.—The coal trade generally throughout North Wales is in a depressed condi- tion, and, as a consequence (writes our correspon- dents, an endeavour was made on Wednesday to sell at Chester the Aston Hall Colliery and Brick- works, under an order of the Court of Chancery, situate at Queensferry, Hawarden. The collieries are furnished with wharves upon the River Dee, and with sufficient plant and rolling stock to carry on a large trade. There was a large attendance, but the only bid that could be obtained was one of £1,000, an amount insufficient, as the auctioneer explained, to cover the cost of the 206 railway wagons. The colliery was then withdrawn from the sale. The coal from Aston Hall Colliery is among the best house coal in North Wales.
