Ino-There was a slightly improved demand for Welsh and Staffordshire in July, but not sufficient to support the opening prices of that month, and we now quote a shade low er. Scotch pig advanced 28. to 3s. per ton in the early part of July, but the rise was not maintained. A few sales of foreign iron and steel have lately been made at current rates. COPPER ion the 11th ult. was reduced jE9 per ton on unmanufac- tured, and Id. per lb. on manufactured;'this reduction has greatly improved the demand, which was for a long time previously very heavy. About 200 tons of South American slabs were imported at Liverpool in July. rp YELLOW METAL SHEATHING was reduced on the Ilth nlt. itd. per lb. TIN.-Thc sales, both of English and foreign, have lately been very limited the former, and also Straits, maintain the prices of the'lst. ult., but Banca is a little lower. Except one ten in April, we have had no importation of foreign since March. The stock of Banca and Straits on the 1st ult. was Tons 361 Exported in July, 8 tons; cleared for home use, 6 14 Stock this day 347 LEAD.—The demand is improved for this metal; in last month a fair amount of business was done in it, and the prices, which were barely maintained on the 1st ult., are now decidedly firm. About 200 tons of Spanish were imported last month, but the major part was hard, and contained silver. SPELTElt.-The apprehension of a protracted and more strict blockade of the Elbe by the Danes, accompanied by a small demand for exportation, brought forward buyers in the home trade unriug the last fortnight, and the price consequently advanced, it being now 30s per ton higher than on the 1st ult. The imports last month were 625 tons. On the 1st of August, 1847, the stock was 2430 tonf,-it is now 2924 tois. CURRENT PRICE OF GOLD AND SILVER.

A vessel arrived in the docks from Singapore has brought 10,902 blocks of gutta percha as a portion of her cargo. The importa- tion of the article taking place in blocks renders it applicable for the manufacture of constables' staves, or any other purposes to wliieh it can be applied. I-, the Mining Journal of Oct. 23, 1847, was inserted returns of the produce of lead in the United Kingdom, for 1845 aotl 1846, by Mr. R. Hunt, of the Museum of Economic Geology, and which he has now followed up by a return for 1847; and, from his kindly favouring us with the particulars, we are enabled to give it in another column from this it will be seen, that the Junoisnt of lead prodllced in England has increased from 35,721 tons in 1846, to 39,482 in 1847 in Wales it has decreased from 10,027 to 10.019; in Ireland it increased from 811 to ] 38J; in Scotland it decreased from 942 to 822 and in the Isle of Man it increased fvin 942 to 1699, being a total increase of lead pro- duced in the United Kingdom from 49,164 tons to 53,410 tons, or 4246 tons. These returns are the more valuable, as, previous to last year, it was impossible to obtain any certain returns, and it Could only be got at by mere approximation.—Mining Journal. THE I nON TRADE OF SOUTH STAFFORDSHIRE.—(From our correspondent.)—BIRMINGHAM, SATURDAY, I am gratified in being able to state that within the last fortnight there has been a dedded improvement in the iron trade of these districts. OrdPrs for air kinds of iron are abundant, but although an advance of, -prices has been seriously discussed, none has yet taken place upon those fixed at the late quarterly meeting. Another highly pleas- iiig feature of the present time is the good understanding which at present exists between the masters and the men. An equi able adaptation of wages to the fluctuating price of iron is now occu- pying the earnest attention of some of the more influential mas- ters of South Staffordshire, with a view to prevent those disagree- ments which of late years have so frequently been a source of great injury to the general trade of the district, and caused an immensity of suffering to thousands of families. Most of the mill and forgemen have resumed work at the late reduction, and the colliers and miners are generally employed; a portion of the pudlers, however, still hold out, but it is expected that they also will corns in on the same terms as their fellow-workmen. Pend- ing the negotiations now on foot for a fair adjustment of the ques- tion of wages, it is to be hoped that nothing will occur to disturb the friendly feeling which still exists between the masters and the workmen, more particularly from the disposition evinced by tho former to recognise, in a fair and liberal spirit, the claims of the labourer to a participation in his property .-Morning Post.
