accom ac coukt-house, va. Saturday, February g, 1892. Entered at the Postoffiee at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. A letter of Hon. John W. G. Black ttone and a bill appended thereto, row pending in the Legislature, is commended to the perusal of our readers. Mr. Blackstone is right in wishing to hear from his constituents ns a question of taxation is presented of importance to them. The advocates of the Kent railroad bill, it is stated, are not as enthusi? astic in its support as They wore earlier in the session of the Legisla? ture of our State, and it is oven said, that no railroad commission bill, will j be passed by this Legislature. The above statements, if correct, mean, that very many statesmen will find themselves on the retired list, when they are called upon to give an ac? count of their stewardship to the people. "We were of the opinion, during our last election, that the most of our legislators committed themselves to the passage of a rail? road bill. Mr. Sp...

Thayer, the retbring Governor, in stepping "down and out"' extended his hand, but Governor Boyd declined to take it or in any way to recognize him. Every postoffice, where the com- j pensation of the postmaster is ?200 or j more per annum, can be made a money ordt r office, in pursuance of a late order of Postmaster-General TFanamaker. This looks like a step in the rifrht direction, but not likely to prove as a great a blessing as it seems to be.

Accomac Court-House, Va. Saturday, February 20, 1S92. Entered at the Postoffice at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. A change in the system of working ihe public roads is among the possi? bilities of the citizens of Northamp? ton. Their representative has actual? ly introduced a bill in the Legisla? ture looking to that change and despite the protest, of the "kickers", we presume, which can be found in i our sister county, as elsewhere in the j Commonwealth. Recognizing the right of the majority to rule, as he j teems to have done, we tender him j our congratulations. It required, doubtless, some courage on his part to turn a deaf car to the croakers, who stand in the way of all progress and reform, but having done it, he deserves well of the public and should have their thanks. The bill is not a perfect one, but any change in our road law means progress and we hail it with gladness. It differs not ma? terially from the proposed road law, for several weeks past in course o...
