NEWCABTUS, Thuraday.-There has been better feeling in trade circles during the pad,, week, due probably, m some measure to the finet weather and the activity in out-door worka, bat beavy fall of snow to-day will have a depresaiaf effect upon out-door occupations. Ison has beea firmer, but manufactured iron ia not much in de>^ mand, which shows that in shipbuilding an engineering works not much is doing; indeed# some works which have been kept busy with marine engines, are now very slack, and thi? amount of shipping lying up in the Tyne ia not' likely to atimulate ship building. No less than eight vessels, belonging to one firm, are &id up for want of profitable employment, and they are the finest description of vessels. In the chemical trade prices are improving. Makera are slow is accepting long contracts at preaent rates. The, Esparto gnusa Btocks at the Tyne docks have never been lower, and, where 30,000 tons were' stocked, there are not 300 tons at present. House* hold coals have fallen 1a per ton, and are iowef than they have been for fifteen years. SteaoL1 coals are very quiet.
