I wa s the only whito man during 1STG iu equatorial Africa, but in 1S77, when only a .short distance from tho Atlantic, tho first missionaries landed on the east coast in response to an anneal that I had written in 1875 from Uganda.

Professional chess players, consider? ing the laborious nature of their work, the character of mind, and the long pre? paratory study required; are probably as ill paid as any kind of intellectual workers. The professional chess player who earns by his play more than a de? cent modest living is a highly successful man.

The Legislature ot Virginia has adjourned, and whatever measures ior good or evil that were passed upon by that body, are now before the public, to be judged by them. The record that has beeu made, open to criticism though it may be in some respects, on the whole was a good one. >*o Legislature could be considered a failure which passed the Manpin-anti-gambling bill, which provided for considerable reduction in the criminal expenses of the State, and which was willing to submit To ;be people the question of a consti? tutional convention, as this Legisla? ture has done.

Accomac Court House, Va. Saturday, March 14, 1S9G. Entered at the Postofflce at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter President Cleveland, says a well known Washington correspondent, will not be a candidate to succeed himself. He will, according to the views of the correspondent speak out. as soon as there is a public move? ment on the part of his friends to ad? vocate his nomination and positively decline to have his name used in the National Democratic Convention. His statement corroborated by an? other, to wit, that lie consented to be a candidate for a second term only in deference to the wishes of Mrs. Cleveland ought to remove all sus? picions, perhaps, of a desire on his part to be burdened longer with the cares of olllce. Of course he would not aspire to an office for a third term, which the Father of his coun? try would not have and which Gen? eral Grant could not get. He may think himself a bigger man than either or both, but his vanity is hardly sufficient to convinc...

The decision rendered by the su? preme court of appeals of Virginia last week, in the ease of the New York, Philadelphia and Norfolk Rail? road vs. the Board of Supervisors of Northampton, means a loss of thous? ands of dollars to The public schools of Virginia. Under the decision, not a dollar can be collected for district school purposes in auy county in the State from any railroad, telegraph telephone or canal company, and while we are not advised, as to the loss occasioned thereby, accepting the statement as correct of Mr. Eugene Withers, member of the late General Assembly, in a recent article published by him, that the county ?l Pittsylvauia alone loses by the de cision $983 61, it can be readily seen, how the public school interests ot Virginia suffer, when the losses caused by the decision in the various counties where railroad pr...

His usefulness w;is destroyed by a joke ?a joke from which he never recovered. Mr. Ciaiu was first elected to the Forty-ninth congress. He was band some in appearance, well posted on all subjects, an orator, and a man of great personal magnetism. These qualities immediately brought him to the front.

Jfarinstrig Enterprise Accomac Court House, Va. Saturday, April 4,1S96. Entered at the Postoftice at Accomac c. H.. Va.. as second-class mutter The new election law, passed by our last Legislature and published in the last issue of this paper, known as the Parker election law, was tested in a local option contest in Northumber? land county last week, and appeared to give greater satisfaction to the voters, says a correspondent of the Richmond Dispatch, than the Walton law did. The only fault observed by the correspondent, iu the operation of the law, was that it burdened the judges of election with too much work and the same condition of i:lTairs is likely to prevail where the illiterate vote is huge and much as? sistance is asked, but that being the only defect, it must be accepted as having exceptional merit ami can't but be satisfactory to the most blatant howler for election reform, if he really desires it. The people oi the Eastern Shore will soon have an opportunity of judging...
