HIGH PRICES OF PROVISIONS

—In consequence of the immense accession of soldiery and other strangers to our population, the prices of everything which enters into the consumption of & family have greatly advanced. Country produce of every description, as well as Groceries and Dry Goods, are sold at prices which have never before prevailed here, and which render living a very expensive affair. A considerable proportion of our people seemed to have turned hucksters, buying and selling to the army at heavy profits, which has the effect of very greatly increasing prices
