I ltO.- Pri ces of Welsh and Staffordshire were tolerably steady during the past month, with very little doing for export. Scotch pigs gave way Is. 6d. per ton, but recovered their position, in con- sequence of some demand for the United States. The business in all descriptions of iron has been dull. In foreign iron and steel, nothing of importanceha, been done. Copper and Yellow Metal sheathing and Tin-plates have under- gone no alteration since the 1st ult. The export of these articles continues very limited. Lio.vi).—■ About 460 tons Spanish were imported in June, chiefly: of hard quality. In English we quote a fall of about 10s. per ton. This metal still continues dull. SPELTg H.- V pry little has been done in this metal during the past month, but the price kept steady, not varying more than 2s. 6d. per ton. A moderate quantity could be obtained in our quotation, but the larger holders ask rather higher rates. The imports last month were 1,000 tons. On the 1st July, 1847, the stock here was 1,800 tons—it is now 2,900 tons. Quicksilver has fallen to 3s, 6d. per lb. IHON.—English of all descriptions has been extremely dull during the month. Of bars in Wales there were sellers as low as £5 10s., but within the last few days a rather better feeling has prevailed, and £5 15s to £6 is asked. Rails of oidinary section are to be had c el at about £6 per ton, but so little has been of late transacted, that quotations are almost nominal. At the quarterly meeting of iron- masters, Staffordshire bars have been reduced 30s. per ton. Of Sweeds iron we have.had little in the market, but sales have been made at E I I per ton. Scotch pig-iron, which receded in the com- mencement of the month, has improved within the last fortnight, and is now firm at the price quoted. The shipments to America have recently been large, but in the absence of continental demand great difference of opinion exists as to the prospects of the article. Copper is quiet, with limited inquiry. TIN.—English is firm-Banea has declined 2s. per ewt., but Straits remains firm at 74s. Tin-plates are in moderate demand, and prices firm. Lead is in limited demand. Spelter has been quiet for the last 14 days. For early arrival business has been done atE13 10s., and though jEI4 is asked by some parties, the market may be fairly quoted at £1:3 10s. to il3 I5s. The stock in London, oil the 1st instant, was 2,900 tons. ENGLISH BAR-IRON.—The market continues much the same. We quote the price £ 5 IOs. to £5 15s., free on board, in Wales. At the usual preliminary meeting of the Staffordshire ironmaster, last week, a reduction of 30s. per ton on manufactured iron was agreed to. The Shropshire ironmasters have reduced their price of pig-iron 20s. per ton and in Yorkshire, we hear, a reduction to the extent of 40,. has been declared. SCOTCH PIG-IRON.—The price of this article has again advanced. Letters from Glasgow state, that sales have been made of No. I, at 45s., free on hoard there; and that holders arc now asking 46s per ton. A considerable business has been done for shipment to the States, to which country it is calculated about 40,000 tons have already been exported—nearly equal to the total quantity shipped there during the oast year. We find that the total exports of Scotch pig-iron, in 1817, TO NS. were about 1,13,500 Of which were shipped to North and South America, India, China, &c., tbout 54,500 And the remainder—say about 89,000 to the continent of Europe. As the present production of Scotland may be taken as equal to that of 1817, and as shipments to the con- tinent arc nearly, if not wholly, suspended, and the demand for home consumption greatly fallen off, it is only fair to presume, that, unless the make be much reduced, present prices will not be main- tained. Copper without alteration, and the demand very moderate, which also applies to English and foreign lead. English Tin steady at quotations in foreign very little doing. Tin-plates continue in good demand, and higher rates have been paid; holders are firm. SPELTER.—But few transactions are reported in this article during the past week. We quote the price £ 11 12i. 6:1. on the spot. GLASGOW PIG-IRON TRADE. JULY 6.—We have had an increased demand for pig-iron this week, and an advance in price has consequently taken place. Sales of mixed Nos. have been made, to some extent, at 45s. and 45s. 6d., cash, and for two months open at 47s. To-day we have buyers at 45s. cash—but holders are asking 46s. The present prices may be considered barely remunerative to the makers, because, although the general run of workmen's wages is how brought nearly to a level with the rates paid when iron was similarly depressed" some years ago, the cost of minerals has been steadily advancing and all new leases, in consequence of increased competition, have been subjected to much higher lordship, which entails a permanent addition to the (o;t of the iron made. During the past part of the current year, it has been ascertained tliut the stocks have been reduced about 20,000 tons, while the quantity made has been fully 15,000 tons less than during the corresponding period of last year. Still the want of the continental demand con- tinues to he seriously felt, and the more so, ,.s the present aspect of affairs holds out little certainty of any speedy amelioration, either in a political or commercial point of view.
