The greatest part of the mines are poorer than usual and will not raise so much ore this year by some thousands of Bings as they did last, and I am convinced the prices are such that the workmen employed in the most exhausted parts of the mines will make very poor wages. The price of provisions are so high that many families in this poor neighbourhood are half starved.
