A prominent lawyer of New Jersey, who has an office on lower Broadway, tells a story about Now York city judges Df 10 years ago that always fetches a nnile. Judge John T. Irving, the np right and contentious brother of Wash? ington Irving, is the hero of the alleged incident It occurred in tho days when judges received a fee of ?1 for every pa? per they sigued. One day two promi Deut New York lawyers, so the story runs, were in Judge Irving's court when ho was busily engaged in signing papers.

The conclusion is inevitable from facts submitted elsewhere, that a Marylander enjoys the unique dis^ tinction. of a dealer in Virginia li? censes, and an oyster inspector of Virginia seems to have been the in? strument through whom he has oper? ated in plying his trade. The Vir? ginia official may be able to explain how John Cox has secured through him licenses for forty non-resident tongmen or more, and he ought to be permitted to do so, but. in giving his explanation, he ought to be required also to state, whether Geo. Sterling and the other forty tongmen applied for registration and license to take oysters with ordinary oyster tongs and made oath before him.as the law requires, of being a resident of the State, etc. Sterling says that he did not. but that Cox secured the license for himself and all of the other Mary landers, and if his ...

Accomac Court-House, Va. Saturday, July 13,1S95. Entered at the Postoffico at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. The question wll , perhaps, be finally settled, at the meeting of the Harmanson-West Camp of Confeder? ate Veterans at Parksley, next Wed? nesday, whether or not, a monument is to be erected to the Confederate dead of the Eastern Shore, and it is important therefore, that there shall be a full attendance of its members. That a shaft pointing heavenward, commemorative of the valor of the comrades who fought wirb Them and died for the Lost Cause would be pleasing to them, goes without say? ing?that they should be leaders in the movement looking to the accom? plishment of that object, is not only expected of them, but a duty which they cannot neglect, if they would not be false to the memory of the gallant heroes from the Eastern Shore who lost their lives in defense of the South. No one outside of the organization could, of course, take the lead in the matter, but ...

"Too ScAi-Td tetter" Prnnmtlzod. Our recent plays arc mainly taten from French sources, and an attempt is often if vainly made to retain their dramatic effect and to exclude that treatment which makes thCessencc of a French work written for French au? diences. Plays seem often to be vamped up for a long run and for a short life, in the higher sense of dramatic life. We also frequently adapt novels, mostly of u melodramatic character, for the stage. One pregnant instance may suffice? "The Scarlet Letter" has boon presented with a "h;qmy ending. " Oh, shade of injured Hawthorne! A very lino narra? tive which depends upon psychological analvsis cannot well he made into a good" drama. Action is so much coarser than thought that the morbid pathology of a story of passion, guilt ami sorrow, with every motive dissected and every character analyzed, becomes a mere com? monplace adultery and a very ordinary melodrama. Hawthorne is to bo read, not seen. His power consists in analytical study ...

The action of the Harmanson West Camp Confederate Veterans, at its meeting at Parksloy on Wednes? day, looking to the erection of a monument to the memory of the dead of the Eastern Shore who gave their lives to the Confederate cause, will be received with satisfaction by the citizens generally of the entire Peninnsula aud very few, if any "native and to the manner born" will, we believe, withold contribu? tions to the entertainment, which the Camp has fixed upon as a means of raising funds for the proposed monument. Of course, it will not be expected, that sufficient funds will be realized from the entertainment at Cape Charles for a monument worthy of their comrades who died for the Lost Ci use, but it is a step in the right direction, to be followed,we take it, by similar meetings in other parts of the Eastern Shore.
