It Ia manlfestly for the interest of dealers, as well as of manufacturero, that diere should be. no exciteinent n the wool market d uring ihe next two months. Aa mattere now stand it is pot merel; probable but certaln, that the new clip wlll opeti at very low prlces ; and in view öfihé loases euöered y vrool tfuyera doring the last three or lour years, it is very evident that it wil) not be bought üp in a hurry.
