HISTORIC BELLS. The Story of a Pair of Kewnrkable Old Spanish Pealera. Two old and remarkable bells have just been received by the Cincinnati Bell Foundry company from Panama, South America. These two old Spanish pealera were manufactured in the yean lt'.OO and 1720 respectively. The gentiema . who shipped them from Panama states in a letter to the Cincinnati Ann that these bells have an interesting history. The letter states: "You might desire tokllOW something of these two old bells sent you, outside of a commercial value. The small one was cast in the year 1600, and the large one in 1720. They have been useless as bells for years, but have served to carry back the thoughts of the Spanish popu? lace here to the old days when this con? tinent was not so great and so thickly populated as at present. "I am sorry that public spirit was not of a sufficient character to keep them as a relic of the old days when our fore? fathers fought with the natives and the wild animals which in that...

jjttMs (tntcvprist. accomac coukt house, Va. Saturday, June 20, ISO'J. Entered at the Postofhce at Accouiac 0. II.. Va., as second-class matter. The arrest of Marylanders, by the Virginia Oyster Police, for catching oysters with scrapes in Virginia waters has caused, as was expected, an outcry from some of the small fry politicians in Maryland. The op? portunity was considered especially favorable for catching votes, by one of the number with congressional aspirations, and the water had hardly dried on the paddles of the depreda tors in our waters, before the Gov? ernor of Maryland was wired. "Four Maryland citizens have been arrested by Virginia Oyster police. All clear? ly within Maryland territory." Of course there was no time for an in? vestigation, which would justify such a telegram, but if prejudice against us could be stirred up and votes caught, what did this embryo States? man care. We choose to believe that our officers, whose duty it was to know where the line was, did k...

In our last issue we had something to say of the successful work done at the Margaret Academy during the session just ended, and we took occa? sion to call the attention of the peo? ple of the Eastern Shore to the merits of this school and its claims upon them for a generous patronage and support. The best evidence of the excellence of an academy ia the sue cess that attends its pupils when they have passed into the higher colleges and universities of the country. Measured by this standard, the Mar? garet Academy has a record of which her officers and instructors maybe justly proud. Every year some one of her old pupils wins distinguished honors at college or university, and sometimes there are more than one to share these honors. During the past few years pupils of this academy have been studying at the University of Virginia and at Harvard ...

Accomac Court House, Va. Saturday, July 4, 1S9G. Entered at the Postofflce at Accomac C. H.. Va.. as second-class matter. The Confederate reunion iu the city of Richmond this week has proved to be too immense an affair for us to attempt a description of it. Re ports of it, made through our ex? changes, indicate that the task is too stupendous even for the great dailies of the Capital City. The scenes pre? sented there in the last four days are so numerous and varied, that every description, in fact, seems to be meagre and tho half of what trans pired in Richmond of interest to every Southern man can, perhaps, never be told. The gathering, it is estiiuated, was the largest that ever assembled in the city and the pro gram of exercises, which was prom? ised, elaborate as it seemed to be, appears to have been small com pared with what it has been. It is enough to know of it, however, that one thing has been demonstrated beyond all others by the reunion, that the affection of the people ...
