--One of the largest sales of cabbages was made at Danville, Va., recently that was ever heard of Mr. Jno. Clark, of Halifax, sold to the Surgeon in charge of the hospitals there 100,000 head of cabbages at twenty-five cents each, making an aggregate of $25,000 worth of this nutritious vegetable. Mr. Clark planted his entire tobacco ground in this vegetable, and hence the immense quantity raised.
