Several ears of excellent looking new Barley, of full growth, and the
produce of the present year, have been left at our Office, on Saturday, the 5th
June instant. It is unprecedentedly early to hear of Barley so forward; and it
is most gratifying to us to be able to afford this pleasing information to the
public, as it will dissipate all fears respecting a scarcity of provisions and
will induce those who are reserving corn and potatoes in the expectation of a
rise in the price, to bring them into market for sale. The Barley has grown in a
field of Mr. Richard Peare's, at Newpark, within three miles of this town. Mr.
Peare will be able to send a quantity of new potatoes into the market on the
24th June instant.
PORT NEWS- The American ship, Governor Tomkins, of and for New York, Captain
Maurin, sailed yesterday from this port, with salt and passengers.
