ACCOMAC COURT-HOUSE, Va. Saturday, November 7, 1801. Entered .'it the Postofiiee at Aeeomac G. ii., Va., as second-class matter. The result of the election., on Tues? day, is full of encouragement for the success of the Democratic party in the next Presidential contest and de? cided one question beyond all doubt ?under whose leadership the Demo? cratic party will make the fight. Heretofore, anticipating success in Ohio, Governor Campbell has been regarded by many, perhaps, as the coining man?others have been equal? ly enthusiastic in presenting the claims of the distinguished Governor of Pennsylvania?but they together with others, formidable candidates of yesterday, henceforth, in view of the splendid victory of the State of New York, won in a great measure by a distinguished citizen of that State, will hardly be considered. It is perhaps not too much to say, the victory was that of Grover Cleveland as it was won on the national issues, with which he has identified himself. With New...

There are thousands of such cases where the wife is a lifetime serf, her opinion disregarded, her tastes insulted, and her existence a wretchedness, though the world may not know it.. It is n Pharaoh that sits at the head of that table, and a Pharaoh that tyran? nizes that home. There is no more ab? horrent Pharaoh than a domestic Pha? raoh. There are thousands of women to whom death is passage from Egypt to Canaan, because t hey get rid of a cruel taskmaster. What an accursed monster is that man who keeps his wife in dread about family expenses, and must be cautious how she introduces an article of mil? linery or womanly wardrobe without humiliating consultation and apology. Who is that man acting so? For sis months?in order to win that woman's heart, he sent her every few days a bouquet wound with white ribbon, and an endearing couplet, and tool; her to concerts and theaters, and helped her into carriages us though she were a princess, and ran across the room to pick up her pocket...

Accomac Court-House, Va. Saturday, November 14, 1S01. Entered at the Postoffice at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. Onr next Legislature will, it is gen? erally conceded, pass a railroad bill, in fact, the members-elect during the r candidacy committed them? selves to such a measure. The rail? road corporation Avill not, it is stated, oppose the passage of a bill and are even willing for a law to be passed to conform to the inter-State Commerce Act?but one thing, they will bitter? ly oppose, if the advices received are correct, to wit: giving tho Commis? sion power to make rates. There's the rub. In matters about which the people do not care a straw they will concur, provisions worthless, be? cause not of a sufficient importance ever to be enforced, will of course be acceded to by them?but rates they must continue to make in the future as in the past to the oppression of the people.

An article of Senator Blackstone in this issue merits the attention of all interested in the improvement of our roads. The Senator is right in say? ing, that "it is expecting too much of the members of the Legislature, to think that they can draft a road law to give satisfaction to the people of the county when the only sutrsroFtion made is a change." He is right, too, in suggesting that the people meet to find out what they want, and his call for the officials to he present, is, too, equally correct?but to that list we would suggest that the names of the Senator and our other representa? tives be also added. Indeed, as rep? resentatives of the people, we suggest that it is their duty, perhaps, to be present at such meeting, to hear the suggestions tobe made for a road law, to participate in its deliberations, to assist in drafting their resolutions,...
