Wool Market during the last mouth
has been very depressed, particularly
for domestic fleece and pulled, while
stocks of the latter named are only
light, and prices 6tead'dy declining
from'2 to 5 cents below former rates.
This state of the market is mostly
to be accounted fur by the undesira
ble condition of the wool of the fast
clip, being generally an inferior one
in quality, and with a great portion
of unsound staple, heavier than U6ual
and mixed with those hard black or
pitch tops, which cau9eari extra loss
in cleansing. In the fleeces there are
also -dung locks and other impurities,
with some exceptions; ' besides more
twine than is needed. The Wool
Manufacturers' Association, being
aware of the defective wool now
grown with us, passed at their meet'

" That Manufacturers have suffered
from over production of particuUr

products.. ,, i

-Foreign Fine Wools are nominally
at former ratss, but little doing, not
withstanding tho insufficient light
stock. The recent accounts from
European markets make mention of
a depressed state in general, in the
manufacturing districts ana in tne
wool markets, in consequence of
which the prices of desirable wools
had somewhat suffered, and among
the family and undesirable kinds the
effect was even greater and more ap
