Piety Not Always the Incentive to Puncto allty?Spurred by the Des! -e to Sit Dur? ing the Day's Proceedings?Xho Cere? monial of Opening the House. The house of commons is unique imiong the legislatures of the world in having no complete accommodation for its members. There are altogether 670 ticmbers of the house, and there are ?xactly 480 seats, of which only 806 are on the floor. The speaker takes the chair at 8 o'clock, except on Wednes? days, and unless the house has agreed to what are called "morning sittings," which begin at 2 o'clock. Three o'clock Is sufficiently late in the afternoon, judging by the example of other legis? latures; but it is too early for the men of business, the practicing lawyers and the men of fashion, who still form so large a factor in the membership of par? liament. It is rarely therefore that there are more than a few members in attendance at that hour. Another rea? son for this ab...

{Jfajnaus (fiutTprise. Accomac Court-House, Va. Saturday, January 6, 1804. Entered at the Postoffice at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. The surprising announcement ma Je a few days ago, that Mr. John W. G. Blackstone was a candidate before our Legislature for the position now filled by Judge B. T. Gunter, was generally discredited at the time and many of his friends are slow to be lieve it, even now that it is an as? sured fact. His declarations, nnxde less than two weeks ago were so en? tirely favorable to the candidacy of Judge Gunter for re election to the office now held by him, that few per? sons, if any, thought it fair to him to give credence to the report. This fact taken into connection with an? other circumstance, to wit: ihe si? lence of Mr. Blackstone as to his as? pirations in this respect., even to his most intimate friends, dispelled the doubts for the most part created by these reports. Mr. Blaoketone, however, is a candidate. Information to that effect r...

WHAt If C?SfS TO "RUN1' monacc The I'ooplo Vay No Taxes aud Have NO Voice In Public Affairs. The report current some time ago that the Prince of Monaco intended to resign as head of the greatest gambling state in the world and devote himself to the pursuit of science, his favorite pastime, has apparently provtd to bo unfounded. He earns his money too easily in his present place and evident? ly has little intention cither of giving it up or of driving the heads of the gam? bling society from bis dominions. "Monaco," says the Statsbuergor Zeitung, "'has 7,000 inhabitants. In 1814 Talleyrand wrote in the diplo? matic act which was to regulate the conditions of all Europe, "And the Prince of Monaco returns to his states.' In 1815 it was further decided that the existing relations between France and Monaco should cease and that thence? forth the king of Sardinia was to play the part in the principality formerly played by the house ot Bourbon.

ACCOMAC COURT-HOUSE, Va. Saturday, January 20, 1894 Eutered at the Postoffice at Accomac | C. H.. Va., as second-class matter. The Wilson tariff bill is now under j consideration in the House of Repre? sentatives and, a^rule having been adopted providing for a vote on the 29th of this month, it is gratifying to I believe that the end of January will see the bill through one of the Houses of Congress. That it will be passed by both Houses, without amendment in any essential particu? lar, there seems to be verv little doubt, and that it will be a thor? oughly reform ] measure, conducive to the best interests of the great bulk ofjjthe'people of the country, seems tobe beyond ail question.'

ff UNDERPAID CLERGY. SOME OF THEM RECEIVE LESS THAN A DRAPER'S CLERK. The Trials nml Final Reward or an En;j lUh Cnrau- In the Klghteeuth Century. Kxtracts from a Diary Which Tell ? l>in mnl Tnlo of "Privation. A great deal is beard from time to time about thp underpaid clergy. It has been recently said by an English writer that "there are many clerks in holy orders who receive less than clerks in linen draper's shops." This is es? pecially true in Europe, where the cler? gy, or at least the curates, are paid such miserably poor stipends that but for the generosity of the parishioners they could not live. In the United States, too, the clergy? man, usually a college bred man of tal? ents and refinement, receives a salary altogether out of proportion to his call? ing and his ability. This remark does _...not apply to tho clergy in the large cit? ies, to many of whom are paid very large salaries. In New York city, for isample, it is said that there are 100 ministers who receive sal...

A special dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. in'its issue of February 1st, shows an estrangement between the President and the Democratic sena tors, for which the latter cannot be blamed, except by those who believe, ??that all power, prerogative and con? science lie in one man." Snubbed continually, as the article indicate s. they have been by the President, it would be strange if their dignity and self-respect did not keep them aloof from him as much as possible, and if should be a matter of ho surprise that Democratic Senators were conspic? uous bv their absence "at a card re ception at the White House on Thursday, of last week, given es pecially in honor of the Congress of United States.'"

ARTIFICIAL WATERFALLS. Some European Structure* That Rival In Beauty Nature's ProU-.ictions. In the town of Nice, on the Mediterra? nean coast, there is a very line artificial waterfall 'something over 20 feet in height. It is exceedingly beautiful, al? though then} is not much water coming over it. and it hangs over the town like a silver bell. It tumbles over a rock in the pnblic park. If int o and Nice were pronounced the same. I would endeavor to make a pun about that waterfall. The waterfalls of Tivoli, near Rome, are practically artificial, for although there existed a waterfall that was natu? ral before the tunnels were made through the rocks, yet three or four of the pres? ent falls that form the attraction to that pretty little Italian town are artificial. I have no data as to their height, but it seemed to me, looking at them from across the valley, that they are at least 300 feet from top to bottom. The prettiest artificial waterfall that I ever saw is in the Eugadine. Th...
