In many instances it has partefl^wide from the object of its establishment, but in all instances it has had many pleasing features. Christmas ta ide has becomo ns frequent and un ique as the story of mythology. Poetry has been evoked to add to tho zest and importance of tho solemnity, until all Christian na tions have their volumes of Christ? inas enrols. Tho most amusing and quaint lore that can be found, refers to the celebration of Christ? mas.

Voiing Girls Without Fortune. An aiticle headed 'Here's a Chance,' set mo to thinking how much a young girl or debutante without income had to be thankful for. A New York paper furnishes an interesting list of debutantes in that city who arc on the market, with the cash value of each girl set after her name; as wc do the rec? ord of trotting horses in this fa moos Blue-grass section. There is an idea generally prevalent that wealth is the surest means of se? curing happiness, and that the two arc'synonymous; without it no one can be miserable. Hut 1 call to mind the troubles of one rieh de? butante?one of the few very rich American girls with large estates :md revenues all in her own right. She was confiding to me some of In i doubles.

ACCOMAC COURT-ROUSE. VA. SATURDAY, JANUARY 29, 1SS7 Entered at the Postofllce at Accomac C II.. Va.. as second-class matter. The Interstate Commerce Bill has passed the House of Rep? resentatives, by a vote of 21*.) to 41 and now only needs the signature of the President, which will un? doubtedly be appended, to become the law of the land. The Virginia ddlegatiou voted solidly in the af firmative excepting Mr. Libbey.? The largo majority by which it passed the House, shows that the most of the republicans, whether it was in accord with their views or ni t, wore at least discreet enough to vote for a measure, which the people with no uncertain sound, seemed to have demanded. Flav-: ing become a law, it remains to be seen whether the rariroad author it es will succumb to the inevitable and gracefully accept its provisions foi their government, or will en? gage in a warfare against if. The former course would seem to be the one dictated by wisdom, if for no' other reason, because an ef...

COUNTERFEITING. Making: Spurious Imitations of Ameri? can Money. The counterfeiting at present is contiucd almost entirely to the coin issues of tho Government, writes a Washington correspondent of t ho Now York World, It is not gen? erally known that the nickles and (he pennies are very successfully counterfeited and that there is no possible means of detecting the spurious from the genuine. The nickels afford a very handsome probt. All the counterfeiters have to do is to go to the Revised Sta? tutes and I hero they find the ma? terials to bo used in their making. All of the metal employed is base. A uicklo costs the Government about one cent and a quarter. If the Government had the exclusive manufacture of these coins there would be a great profit in them.? Hut tho coin can ho so easily re? produced that there is no means of estimating how many of them are put out of the counterfeit eluss. If the Government should decide to call in this class of coin they would have to redeem the ...
