Condition of things in North Alabama.

A gentleman just from North Alabama gives a cheering account of the condition of affairs there. He represents the country at plentifully supplied with provisions, which can be procured at reasonable rates, compared with the unnecessarily high prices we are compelled to pay in Virginia-- is bought at 90 cents a bushel, butter at 49 cents a pound, and other produce in proportion — The people feel the utmost confidence in the ability of our army in Middle Tennessee to keep back the invaders, and are consequently preparing to plant provision crops largely. The presence of the enemy last spring, and the many outrages they com have only served to increase the determines of the citizens, and they are now more firm in their loyalty to the Confederacy than when hostiles broke out. We are assured that if North Alabama is protested from the inroads of the enemy, she is now and will continue to be able to furnish a large surplus of supplies.
