High prices.

--Vegetables of every kind continue to command exorbitant prices in the markets, notwithstanding the large quantities cultivated in the city and its vicinity. Choice articles are kept high by the demand for them in eating houses and other public places. Just now Hanover and New Kent are not furnishing their usual supplies; and the fact that hams are scarce, and some neighborhoods have no means of sending to market gives the speculators a good opportunity for keeping up prices.
