Good Crop.

--The Hanover "truck tenders" have had a rich harvest the present season. Several of them have realized from three to eight thousand dollars on their melon crops, and will make as much more on their sweet potatoes, which are now being sent to market. Many large farmers who tend tobacco and grain, and who work a large number of hands, rarely ever realize as much cash from their labors as do the "truck patch tenders" of Hanover county, who employ small forces and limited capital.
