--We learn from the Wytheville Dispatch that a lot of pork was offered in that place on Thursday last at seven dollars per one hundred pounds in specie, but the price seems to have been regarded as too high, and no sale could be made. The Dispatch says:--

‘ "There are a good number of hogs in the country and abundance of corn to fatten them. That being the case, it is nothing more than reasonable to believe that pork will be sold in this market for six dollars. The fifteen-dollar pork has played out, we think."
