The market yesterday morning was like the old apothecary’s shop,
“A beggarly account of empty boxes,”
and stalls, which former occupants had abandoned. A few butcher’s stalls and a few huckster wagons constituted the sum total of the sources for supplying the tables of twenty odd thousand people, hundreds of whom are as loyal as any in the land of the Stars and Stripes.
