The Yankee raid, which has made so much soles and done so little, has had its effect in guarding alarm in certain sections which contribute largely to the daily markets of the cry. Added to this is the apprehension of danger of impressing horses and, the two operating, supplies have been, within a few days, very much curtailed.
As the raiders have gone, and as pressing is suspended — as the occasion and the action under it are passed — they can all come now in quiet and safety and get war prices for, their marketable commodities.
The number to be fed, especially those needing fresh food — vegetables and meat — is much increased, and therefore the demand is greater.
Those who have seasonable supplies will find quick sales, and may return safe and satisfied.
