The nhipmentH of tho week, ii.'fiO'J tons, exceed the shipment during the corresponding season of 18S0, by 2,197 tonn and when it in considered that many of the furnace supplied from this ioint have 1 mi rely received their fimt instalment of coke, while others have but junt blown in, the opinion is justified that more iron will lie made this season from ore laid down in Cleveland and shipped to interior points than at any previous time. Denier in ore agree that every pound shipicd will fhuVa ready market at full prices and, irhaps, at an advance over npring quotation.
