?cnm$i?a Enterprise. ACCOMAC COLTllT-nOUSE. VA SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1SS9. Kntererl at Hip Postoffice at Accomac C II..A'a.. as second-class matter. In a spirit of comity, creditable to the Democratic party on the Kastern Shore, the right of Acco? mac to two and of Northampton to one of the representative's in the General Assembly of Virginia has been so universally recognized no one, so far as we are advised, has questioned it, not even the editor of.onrcontemporaiy.the Headlight, if we interpret correctly his latest effusion. In accordance with the compact existing between the Democrat.-!-party in the two coun? ties, resolutions were introduced into tho late Democratic con? vention held in Accomac, conceding to our neighboring county not only the right ton candidate; but, in a spirit of charity and loving kindness to wards, as well as confidence in the people of Northampton, to name their own candidate.

ODDS AND ENDS. . It is asserted that Paris shopkeepers have raised prices fully 50 per cent., ? but only to strangers. It is nn ancient belief that a change in the-body of a man occurs every seventh year. The man who boasts that he is ready to shed his last drop of blood is apt to be particular about the first drop. A Huntington paper says: There arc villages in this county of 200 or 300 inhabitants where it would be impos? sible to lind a soul astir on Sunday afternoon. It is a universal custom to "nap." An offensive trunk raised an excite? ment in the depot at New Oxford, Adams county. Pa., thootherday. On being opened it was found to hold ladies' wearing apparel well stocked with naphthaline to keep oil' moths. Australia is as cosmopolitan as the United States. At a hotel in Sidney the other week there were thirteen different nationalities represented at one table.

ODDS AN LT- ENDS. The average age of the twelve Eng? lish bishops is 7i> years. "Strange how wet it is!" "Be stranger still if it wore dry with such heavy rains." The king of Spain took his first soa bath at Sa:i Sebastian two weeks ago. His eldest sister, the princess of iho Asturias, aged 9, carried him in. During a session of the grand lodge of Odd Fellows at Rome, (Ja. Aug. 21, Col. Adolph Brandt, a prominent law? yer of Atlanta, while sneaking on a resolution, fell dead from apoplexy. The prophecy of a mad man that a disastrous earthquake would shock London on Aoril S. 1730, caused thou? sands of persons, particularly those of raid* and fortune, to pass this period in their carriages and in tents. A starling was discovered at the bottom of a coal pit near Airdrie, and on being taken to the surface it next day returned to the bottom of the shaft, some 900 feet. The building of big steamships is said to be overdone. The result will probably bo sharp competition ami a r...

THE SCHOLAR IN Afv*iRICA. His Honl Vnlao Is Not Appreciated by tlie Muxs of the IVople. In his judgment of the scholar the average American citizen has usually only one definite idea?that he is a tlreamer quite out of contact with ac? tual, life. Consider for a piotnunt the genuine amazement and uismay with which the average citizen regards a serious attempt on the part of educated men to exert their due influence in the Solution of a great political or ceo-; nomic probtont. He seems to look upon them somewhat as he would watch a group of monkeys escaped from their cage and engaged in some mischief; the effects of which they cannot be made .to comprehend; or, to substitute a simile somewhat more complimentary, that a throng of ex? cited pa-1 senj^ors had attempted to dic? tate the management of a great ocean steamer. Of course no such view of scholarly activity in the |x>litical field will be submitted to. The men who devote their lives to the study of the records of huma...
