Our views concerning this matter arc simply these : Under the head of merchandise—we would have this term embrace provisions dally sold in market—may be classed all articles of trafic.— Those are of two kind*, vis : Inxurte* and ntcet- sar\U. In times of peace competition regulates prices, and those who buy need not be imposed on I y those who sell; for other markets are open to the purchaser* But in times like these the buyer is cbmpelled to buy at home.
