Great fall of prices.

--Ten days ago flour was selling in this place at $300 per barrel, and even $350 was said in a store. And bacon at $5 and $6 per pound. In the course of the last week flour sold here at $160 and bacon at $3. These prices were all in the equivalent of the new issue — that is, old issue at two-thirds of its face — the barrel at $350 costing $325 in old notes. We have beard of a fall in other articles, though not to such an extent as in these,--Fayetteville (N. C.) Obitruer.
