Calcutta, June 7, 1841.-Sales of Mule Twist continue to be effected at steady prices: imports are considerable, and reported during the month of May of 16,96,025 lbs. A few sales of Red and Orange Yarns are reported at rather discouraging prices. Some speculative transactions in Single Color Sets of Chintzes, have taken place, in anticipation of orders from the Upper Provinces ; the prices of Chintzes realized at present are far from being encouraging.-Rather better business has been done this week in Turkey Red Twills and Plain Cotton Cloths, and full prices, in some instances, have been realized.-Shirtings and Jaconets continue to be sold to a fair extent at steady prices; in all other descriptions of Cottons, transactions are limited, and prices have a tendency to give way.
-Woollens in demand, and sales continue to be made at steady prices.-Copper is in limited operation owing to the pressure on the money market; the prices of the day exhibit a shade of decline on Sheathing and Braziers.-Several parcels of Iron have changed hands during the week at rather low prices, consequent on recent importations.-Steel, Lead, Spelter, Tin Plates, and Quicksilver, without report of transaction, and we have no change in price to notice.Pr. Cur.
Madras, June 2, 1841.-The sales of easily obtained.
Europe Articles since our last have been very limited, and there is a general depression in the demand for Imports, ascribable to the scarcity of money.Pr. Cur.
Bombay, June 19, 1841.-The very few sales of Cotton Piece Goods and Yarn effected during this month, confirm our previous reports that business was almost entirely suspended, and we regret to hear that the season closed with considerable stocks in the hands of importers, though confined, perhaps, to particular description of goods. The recent arrivals of Turkey Red Goods have been too plentiful, as well as of low descriptions of Jaconets and Longcloths, but it is exceedingly difficult to form any correct idea of what Stocks really exist.-English Bar Iron, after receding as low as Rs. 28 per Candy, has again advanced a trifle, the quantity held by dealers not being very heavy, although that in the hands of importers is excessively and unusually large. Material improvement in prices would therefore seem to be a very remote contingency. Swedish Bar Iron is lower also, the last having been effected at Rs. 55 per Candy, but the Stock is very moderate. Nail Rod Iron saleable at Rs. 35 per Candy. Sheet Iron, the stock heavy. Pig Lead, the demand rather more active, and Rs. 11 per cwt. can be
