Market men and the Pickets.

We learn that on some of the roads leading to the city such is the rigor of the military police that countrymen decline coming with their marketable commodities. We have this information from a very respectable officer of the army. It is certainly at a time like this exceedingly impolitic to impose unnecessary obstruction to communication between the country and the city. The exceeding scarcity of every article of diet bear heavily on the soldier as well as the citizen. It is a matter worthy the investigation of Gen. Winder. The market man should be encouraged rather than obstructed in his efforts to continue his trade with the city.
