STATE OF TRADE. ROCHDALE FLANNEL MARKET, MONDAY, Jt'LY 31 —1 he market to-day has been rather dull, owing, it is said, to the reported distur- bances in Ireland, and t'tie state of the Chartists and IrMi Repealers in Lancashire, buy:" en; only purchase small quantities or goods Prices, both of Itanncis and wool, remain much the same as usual. LEEDS.—On the whole a fair amount of g-oods have changed bands at our cloth halls. The mar- ket on Saturday was one of the best of the year, but on Tuesday, in consequence, in a great" mea- sure, of the unfavourable news from Ireland, there was less business done. The demand for the home market, consequent upon the favour- able appearance of the grain crops, continues good the foreign houses are also operating more freely, and should the unhappy state of things subside in Ireland, tljere is little doubt in the minds of most.people in the trade that there will continue to be a good demand for the winter trade. A full average amount of business has been done in the warehouses, principally by the wholesale buyers, who purchase more freely, the general opinion being that goods arc as low as they are likely to be.—' Leeds Mercury.'

The home merchants are not so active to- day, in consequence of the unsettled state of Ireland.
