Our readers will be much gratified in observing the great increase in the quantity of iron sent down the Glamorganshire Canal during the past year, over that sent in the preceding. In the year 1832 the total quantity was 85,330 tons; in the present it is 112,315 tons. This is indeed an auspicious harbinger of the return of better times, not only to the masters, but, as we have every reason to expect, to the me also, and to the whole trade of the town. The present aspect of the market leads us to expect that this must take place, if no pre- mature attempts to hurry on events before their natural time should interfere, to disturb the fu- ture progress of the trade. It is to be remembered that this prospect, if nothing interpose to counteract it, is very much confirmed by the circumstance that the American duties on iron will be reduced in March. This will occasion at that time such all increase in the demand for the metal, as must be manifestly of great importance in increasing the profit and wages of all persons concerned in the trt(de, and consequently in improving the trade of Merthyr. Undoubtedly a great accession to this advantage would be gained if a treaty were formed with France for the admission of British iron. In that country the protecting duty, for the prohibition of our production, forms nearly twice as much as the English price of the article. We merely throw out this suggestion for the consideration of our honourable Member; who seems pecti- liarly qualified to give it effect, both by his known intelligence on questions of free trade, and by the influence which no doubt he possesses with his Majesty's ministers.
