The Markets yesterday were tolerably well supplied with vegetables as well as a good assortment of fresh butter. For the former somewhat reduced prices were asked, while fifteen and sixteen dollars were still demanded per pound for the latter. Several lots were displayed for sale which had been brought to the city every day for the past three or four days, but its quality had become so indifferent from keeping it on hand that, although the price was reduced nearly one-half, no purchasers could be found, and the fellows when last heard from were trying to barter it off for mere nominal sums. Ten dollars should be the maximum price for the best article during the present season of scarcity.
