The Iron and Coal Trades. (From the O'eekly M.ail, February 5.) BIIEDUCTION OF COAL RATES IN TILE FORlEST OF DEAN. ON Monday afternoon a special meeting of Forest col'icry proprietors was held in the Town Hl:hl, Clndcrfbrd, wmhn repro. sentatives of the menl, headed by Mr. Mountjoy, miners' agent, and Mr. G. F Goooh, tle miners' chairman, were pre sent. Mr. Gould pointed out that the coal trade ha:d becomne depressed, and it was desirable to redac the price Is. per ton, in which case, wages would have to ' e lowered five per cent. This case, he said, was forced upon the Forest masters, unless they were prepared to sacrifice their trade. It was deidod to reduce coals So. per ton, and wages nccordingly. The leaders of the molle asked for time to lay the matter before the collieries, some of whom iverenodt represented, and to this the -masters offered no objeotion.

CARDIFF [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 6 May 1876
'CAlDIFFL Though the quantity of coal cleared for foreign ports is more than it was for the last week, it cannot be said that business is any better. Everything is without animatirn, ant the little thatis done is accomplished with difficulty, and without satisfaction, because of its un proflitableess. Coals ore cheap, col lieries are working short time, and freights are low and scsrce, so that good emrployment for shippingcan hardly be sound. PIitwood remains at last week's prices, the quantity that has been landed having been fully equal to the demand. Tho import trade has been no better than the exports. Dullness pervades the conm mercial atmosphere, not only here, but throughout the district, and no hopes of better days seem to be entertained, though doubtless they will come again.
MR. MACDONALD AND LORD ABERDARE. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 6 May 1876
MR. MAODONALD AND LORD AB3ERDARE. On Thursday, Mr. Alex. McDonald, M.P., addressing, in Glasgow, at a miners' meeooting, said that Lord Aber dare was afraid of the miners driving trade from the country. He (Mr. McDonald) maintained that whoever drove trade from the country it was not the working men. It was such wealthy coal owners as his lordship, who ex. tracted high rates from their mines. In France and Belgium the royalties were small, and id America nominal. The Scotoh miners were in a worse position then English miners, the former work ing for lower wages. Mr. He 'nald adiocated the disuse of:por¢dcr in lire damp mines.
Romantic Divorce Case. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 6 May 1876
onlliantic. Divorce Case. Smi James Hannen commenced, on the 1st March, in the Divorce Division of tho' High Court of Justice, the hearing of a petition by Mr Hubert 'Smith (author of " Tent Life in Norway") who asked for a divorce from his wife who, it, will be remembered, was the heroine of his book, and also for dam ages against tile co.respondent, Mr. Groome. From the opening statement of Mr. Stavely Hill it appeared that tlo' petitioner is a solicitor and town olerk of Bridgnorth. He occupies somine con siderable' property on the 'Severn, und on that property gipsies were in tlie habit of pitching. their tents. A family of them named Looko seemed to have had a particular liking for that locality. In fact, a Bind.secluded spot on the banks of the Severn seemed to'lhavo been their home. The petitioner is a lan i of a' literary turn of mind, and the Romany race seemed to iiave formed' a 'prticular feature in,,' his studics'. Ho became interested, in tlhe family thus located on' hi...
