ACC0A1AC C?UHT-IIOUSE. VA. SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1SS6: Knre '? -\t the Postoffico at Accomac C, IL. Va .as second-class matten The ineffable cowardice of the Demoern r-ic Senators who are stand ing idly by and permitting the slaughter of their friends of the Democratic party,who were editors of Democratic papers and dared to criticize Republican Senators, is amazing. But a few days ago. Mr. Button, nominated by President Cleveland as postmaster of Lynch Itnrg, was refused confirmation. When his case came up the only Senator who dared cry out against the infamy of his taking off was the junior Republican Seuator from th s state. His ouly crime was his devotion to Democracy and his fearless reprobation ofEepublienns and Republicanism. Yet not even Vance or Vest dared protest. But? ton was slaughtered to please little Billy Mahoue, aud Vance, Vest, Butler, Hampton and other South? ern Senators, linking with those of North,stood calmly by and without a protest saw him stricken down.

Criti rating Blackberries. In nn essnv published on the transactions of the American Bom ologieal society, Mr. G. Cowing writes; A rich and well drained dry soil is most favorable to the blackberry. On such a soil I have never known some of the most hardy sorts to bo Injured by tho most intense cold, while I have seen I hem much injured or killed in inor* sterile ground. This docs not aCrord with tho holier of many who claim that a rich soil causes a intik growth which is easily winter? killed. Cultivaiion late in antunni should be avoided, ami the plants sh mid be allowed to rest and inn turo their wood. A deep and rieh soll is necessary to the production of Innre and luscious fruit. To pre vent the eiloets ofdrought, I regard a heavy inuleh or leaves or stiaw as better than cultivation. The best wild blackberries are always found near brush hen pa or rotter, logs. In planting, the rows should be seven or e ght led apart. The plants should be two feet apart in the rcw. and 1 have f...
