IRONMASTERS' MEETING AT WOLVERHAMPTON.—At the preliminary quarterly meeting of the South Stafford- shire ironmasters held in this town, on Wednesday, it was resolved that no alteration of the prices of last quarter should be declared. They consequently stand as followsBars, JE9; hoops, £10; and sheets, £ 11 per ton. It was stated that the demand for manufactured iron at home was improving, but that foreign orders were lighter than expected. There are, however, pur- chasers in the market for American and Continental houses, and it is expected that the quarterly meetings will not pass over without extensive transactions bjing effected, with those countries. The prices of pigs quoted on Saturday are firm, and there appears to be little doubt that they will be well supported during the coming fortnight. There was a general concurrence of opinion that the consumption of pig-iron will be much greater during the ensuing than it was in the past quarter, and that the price is likely to be firm in con- sequence. The trade generally is in a healthy state, aid during the last week orders have come in more < freely, especially from home consumers. Ironstone re- mains at 18s. per ton. The coal trade is brisk. The Earl of Stamford has commenced sinking for coal upon his Enville estate, and it seems probable that ultimately not only Enville, but Himley and Wombourn, will become iron-producing districts. THE LEAVES OF THE TEA PLANT, gathered in early spring are by far the best :-As the season advances the crop becomes larger, but the quality is comparatively valueless. The Autumn brown ill-looking leaves were formerly all imported under the name of Bohea, and sold at low rates but we now never hear of the name all this dingy common Tea being coloured by the Chinese with the same colour as the best, and sold as such to the great loss of the Consumer.. The only way to avoid this, is by purchasing Tea in its Fure state The Black sorts, less intensely dark than those ordinary supplied the Greens, of a dull olive hue having no artificial bluisi* appearance. Horniman & Co. London import such. and. supply through their Agents, as advertised. I
