accom ac coukt-house, va. Saturday, February g, 1892. Entered at the Postoffiee at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. A letter of Hon. John W. G. Black ttone and a bill appended thereto, row pending in the Legislature, is commended to the perusal of our readers. Mr. Blackstone is right in wishing to hear from his constituents ns a question of taxation is presented of importance to them. The advocates of the Kent railroad bill, it is stated, are not as enthusi? astic in its support as They wore earlier in the session of the Legisla? ture of our State, and it is oven said, that no railroad commission bill, will j be passed by this Legislature. The above statements, if correct, mean, that very many statesmen will find themselves on the retired list, when they are called upon to give an ac? count of their stewardship to the people. "We were of the opinion, during our last election, that the most of our legislators committed themselves to the passage of a rail? road bill. Mr. Sp...

Accomac Court-house, Va. -? o > Saturday, February 13, 1802. Entered at tho Posroffice at Accomac C. H., Va.., as second-class matter. In accordance with the recent de? cision of the Supreme Court of the United States, Governor James e. Boyd. of Nebraska, took possession of his office last Monday, witheld from him for several months by his Republican opponent. Thayer, the retbring Governor, in stepping "down and out"' extended his hand, but Governor Boyd declined to take it or in any way to recognize him. Every postoffice, where the com- j pensation of the postmaster is ?200 or j more per annum, can be made a money ordt r office, in pursuance of a late order of Postmaster-General TFanamaker. This looks like a step in the rifrht direction, but not likely to prove as a great a blessing as it seems to be. Tho average country postmasters will not encouraue money order offices, however materially they j may add to the convenience of the j public, which will impose upon them ! extra la...

Accomac Court-House, Va. Saturday, February 20, 1S92. Entered at the Postoffice at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. A change in the system of working ihe public roads is among the possi? bilities of the citizens of Northamp? ton. Their representative has actual? ly introduced a bill in the Legisla? ture looking to that change and despite the protest, of the "kickers", we presume, which can be found in i our sister county, as elsewhere in the j Commonwealth. Recognizing the right of the majority to rule, as he j teems to have done, we tender him j our congratulations. It required, doubtless, some courage on his part to turn a deaf car to the croakers, who stand in the way of all progress and reform, but having done it, he deserves well of the public and should have their thanks. The bill is not a perfect one, but any change in our road law means progress and we hail it with gladness. It differs not ma? terially from the proposed road law, for several weeks past in course o...

A cattle funeral may seem an odd thing to write about, but it is ten times more sad to witness. If tho observer happens to be on foot in the vicinity of the scene of the ceremony, however, he is apt to Gnd it anything but odd, unless there be a tree or some other place of refuge convenient, or the curious onlook- I cr be unusually fleet of foot. But doubtless the average reader does ! not know what a cattle funeral is liko, | and perhaps is not inclined to give credit i to the possible existence of such a thing.

It is to be hoped that our people ?will awaken if not already aroused? to the importance to them of secur? ing the Farmers' Institute at Gap? Charles City. Capt. 0. A Browne in the Headlight, and Dr. George W. LeCato in this paper, have fully set forth the manifold advantages to our people of its securement and pointed out how it can be secured. There are those who fight what they call "book farming," and who believe that the only way a farmer can succeed is to be bred to the busi? ness by holding the plow, or sowing the seed. Undeniably to some ex? tent this is true. But progressive farming wh i!e not absolutely a science, has so much of scientific methods that he who does not study] these methods, or learn of those I who make a slow study of them, and thereby "broaden the scope of his knowledge*' will find that he lags in the race wit...
