Eoyd, Cap? tain Godfrey, arrived hero early yesterday morning from Montevideo with a cargo Of bones, which wore gathered from the plains of that locality, and tho voyage will long bo remembered by 'Captain Godfrey and hiswi? as well as by all tho sailors. Tho ship became infested with scorpions, which arose from the cargo and penetrated every available quarter of the ship. The seamen's rest was disturbed, and for weeks at a time - the unfortunate men dared not rest themselves in their bunks for fear of be? ing stung by one of the creatures. Every effort to rid the ship of the plague was unsuccessful, aud even on Monday night, while lying at the upper quarantine, the decks and cabins were alive with these creeping insects.

ACCOMAC COURT-HOUSE, Va. Saturday, November 25, 1893. Entered at the Postofflce at Accomac 0. H., Va., as second-class matter. The Legislature will soon meet, and among its earliest acts will be the election of United States senators. These should be the individuals whom the people of Virginia, and not the rings and cliques,want. The people should, therefore, hold public meetings at the county court houses and pass resolutions informing their representatives of their wishes in the premises.. They should instruct them for whoni they wish them to vote as senators. This is a most im? portant matter, and it should be tak? en up and pressed at once. The above from the Richmond Times voices, with few exceptions, the sentiments of the people of the Eastern Shore and is so entirely in accord with the views of the people of Acoomac, that a demand is b ing made by very many of the best citi? zens of the county, for a public meet ing at Accomac C.

THE GOLD uucoiiOrt. Perhaps to Ho Solved Uy the Tlm?Iy Defeat of King: Lobongiilu. The following communication, bearing a "Washington date, appeared in a recent issue of tho New York Sun: It is cu? rious that the newspapers of today which announce the destruction of silver should also announce the collapse of the Mata bele king of a country larger than the Dakotas. In each instance the British anri sacra fames will be held responsible by the critical or perhaps hypercritical chronicler of events. I have always ventured to profess a faith in the infallibility of the Anglo Saxon races. La this country I believe that the nation is swinging with a ve? locity perhaps dangerous toward the freedom of silver, and that seems to be tho view of the triumphant repealers here today, where the losers are more elated than the winners. But in Africa, England is today an? ticipating such a production of gold as will bring back the traditions of Cali? fornia and Ballarat, and tho victory of a mere jo...

ACCOMAC COURT-HOUSE, "V*A. ? Saturday, December 16, 1893. Entered at the Postofflee at Aceomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. The selection of Gen. Eppa Hun ton by the Legislative Democratic caucus last week, to fill the unexpir ed term of the late Senator Barbour, was generally expected and seems to be universally approved by the peo? ple of the State. They accept the result, not only as due to him for his distinguished services to the Com? monwealth, both as civilian and soldier, but believe that the selection of him for the long term would have been too, only a just recognition of his merits. It cannot be said, how? ever, that the selection of Mr. Thos. S. Martin as his successor has the hearty endorsement of the Demo? cratic voters of the State, if the mutterings of discontent which come from every section of the State furnish any criterion by which we may judge in the matter. Indeed the senti ment prevailing seems to be.that the politicians and corporations have had their ...

An interesting case was that of Mc? Gloin, & tough who killed a French? man. Thero was little positivo evidence against him. Everything was supposi? titious, but Thomas Byrues' supposi? tions in matters of that kind are likely to bo not far from right.

ACCOMAC COURT-HOUSE, Va. Saturday. December 23, 1893. Entered at the Postoffice at Accoinac C. H.. Va., as second-class matter. The disclosures.before the commit? tee appointed by the Legislature of Virginia, to investigate all matters relating to the election of members of the Legislature and the recent nomination of Mr. Thomas S. Marton for the long term in the United States Senate, are anything but gratifying to Virginians. Educated as the peo? ple of the Commonwealth, for the most part, have been into the belief, that an office of so much honor and dignity as that of United States Senator should seek the man, the new way of making such selection, as indicated by evidence submitted to the committee is very far from being approved by them. They cannot rid themselves of the notion, that questionable methods were used in the late Senatonal contest when one member of the House testifies before said committee, as did the member from Henrico, Mr. Binford, "that he was approached a few ...
