It is a type that is fa? miliar to all tho attendants at tho ball games and to tho many men who are ac? quainted with the world of sports.

The special committee ot Virginia has made its report to the Governor and decides that while the oyster schooners William K. Price anil C. W.

The Maryland com? mittee goes back to the old conten? tion that the Marylmders have been deprived of "theirrights" (which the Court has decided are not and never have been "rights") und that "they commit no wrong when they lish where their fathers and grandfath? ers were always allowed to lish."

The Eastern 8hore Agricultural Fair had not closed at the time of going to press, but we have enough data in our possession, to state that It has been a success financially.

The receipts in the aggregate will be largo:-, it is thought, than ever be? t?re at any Fair in the history of the Association.

ACCOMAC CO?KT-IlOU?E, Va. Saturday, August 18, 1894. Entered at the Postofflee at Accomac :J. H., Va., as second-class matter. The tariff question has at last beeu disposed of, but in a manner very far from being satisfactory to the Ameri? can people. An agreement in the matter whs reached on last Monday, by the House deciding to recede from the disagreement on the part of the House to the Senate amendments to the Wilson BUI. This action of the House is justified on the ground that anless the Senate .Kill was adopted there could be no tariiT legislation at this session of Congress and in the spirit oi the homely adage, doubtless * that a half loaf is bettor than none.'' No one believes or claims that it ful? fills even in a measure the expecta? tions of the American people, but as the best measure which could be ob? tained, the action of the House, un? der the circumstances, will be ap? proved by the people. It is u step probably in the right direction and tin- light for a better ta...

Tlu next tension of Margaret Acad? emy begins September 19th, and in calling attention to that fact, we cannot too heartly commend it to the patronage of our readers. We give it our unqualified endorsement, because in our opinion, it is not one of the best, but the best preparatory school in the State of Virginia, and the word ' preparatory" is meant by us in no sense to convey the idea that it is only a school where the rudiments are taught?they are taught there in a very efficient manner, but the school has, in addition, a course of instruc? tion as thorough and comprehensive as will be found at most of the col? leges in the State of Vircinia or else? where.

Accomac Court-House, Va. Saturday, September 1, 1804. Entered at the Postoffice at Accomac c. H., Va., as seooml-ehiss matter. The measure known us the "Hor mau-Brice tariff bill*' became a law at 12 o'clock Monday night, as pro? vided by the Constitution of the United States, without the approval of the President. That he would approve it no one expected, but his course in permitting it to become a law, however disappointing to him, because of the partial relief it aiford ed the suffering masses, will com? mend him to the still greater admi? ration of his countrymen. He could not permit himself, he says, to be separated from his party to such an extent as might be implied by veto of tariff legislation, though there are provisions in the bill which are not in line with honest tariff reform and though it contained inconsistencies and crudities which ought not to ap? pear in tariff laws or laws of and kind?-ami the reason will be satis factory to the great body of people from whom he ...
