Cut nails.

--All the blame for the rise of the price of nails, it seems, is not to be attributed to the manufacturers. Previous to the war iron was $3 per ton. Now it is $60 per ton. Wages have advanced 25 per cent. Oil leather, &c., entering into the manufacture of nails, have advanced 100 to 200 per cent. This state of facts seems to transfer the balms to speculation in the material employed in the manufacture.
