Tree Culture—Acclimatization Cliarles M. Hovey writes an interesting article to the Massachusetts Ploughman which contains many valuable suggestions to tret planters. He remarked in a former article that all the attempts acclimate in the East the trees of the Pacific coast have ended with total failure, which brings us to the subject of acclimatization, one which has attracted a great deal of attention, and the 'formation of societies for that especial object, notably that of Paris.

ON last Tuesday a terrible cyclone prevailed along the coast from Virginia to Louisiana. Scores of persons were killed or injured, towns in some places almost destroyed, and the loss to the shipping interests is incalculable. Iu some parts of Mississippi and Georgia the damage done by the cyclone is appalling. At Wesson, Miss., one hundred and fiity or two hundred dwellings are blown down and trees that had stood the storms for years, were uprooted o »nd carried a hundred yards away; twelve persons were killed and the number of people with broken limbs is estimated at 75. Beauregard, Miss., is a mass of ruins, and there is not a house of any kind standing in the place. The list of wounded and dead there is also a very large one.

He was a pit iable miser, denying himself the necessary comforts of life, lie always dined alone, with a newspaper for a table cloth. One wfnter evening he was sitting alone without tire or light in order to expense of both. A visitor was announced, and Guy lighted a farthing candle. The visitor was a Mr. Hopkins, another celebrated miser, who had called in order to be taught a lesson in frugality. : " If that is all you have come about," said (iuy, "we can as well talk in the dark," and blew out the light.

A REHEARING has been refused by the Supreme Court of the United States in the Louisiana and Virginia bond cases. The debt question being thus settled, surely by that tribunal is cause for offering congratulations to tho people of Virginia. The decision is not in accord with our notions of justice, and the provisions of the KIDDLEBEEG'ER bill hare for us as loathsome deformity as ever, but as nothing can bo gained now by a further agitation of the subject, and relief is furnished by the decision l'rom a question the most vexations that ever disturbed our people, we cannot but rejoice, though we do not approve the decision, that the debt question is to be no longer a disturbing element in Virginia. AT a coalition convention held in Southampton county several weeks ago, a letter was read from MAHONE, stating that when necessary to further the interests of the party, the negroes should be put on...

(Butri|rise. Circulation, 1240 Accomac C. H.. Va.: THURSDAY- MAYI7, 1883. TIIE Court of Appeals of Virgin m decided on last Friday the Richmond Public School cases. Under the decision of the Court, the old City School Board is required to surrender the control of the City Schools ti> Hie new Board appointed l>y the State Board of Education. The new Board being composed in part of colored men, one of the results of this victory for Mahoneism will be that the colored man becomes the examiner of the capacity of the teacher and the proficiency of] the pupil in the city of Richmond, and the high prerogative thus accorded tbe colored brother l>y the decision in that city, we presume can and will be extended them iti every part of our Commonwealth.

How to Serve Breakfasts, Luti* cheons and Teas. The breakfast should be always of all appetizing character, ;is it is one of our . principal meals, and, as Leigh Hunt tells us, " breakfast is the foundation of the day's employment, and oftentimes of its healththerefore its surroundings should be made as attractive as possible ; and, although they should be very different from the elaborate decorations of the dinner-table, they should be made as pleasing. And a pretty breakfast service of English or French china, with all the variety of dishes for meats, vegetables, eggs, toasts, cakes, jams and fresh fruits, will add greatly to the .appearance of the table and not draw very heavily upon the purse of paterfamilies. A good set of English ware can be purchased for from sl2 to §ls, which will give you a much letter appetite than if your food is sewed upon cracked, chil>l>ed, plain white ware, with coffee cups so thick that your lips can hardly tit •ver their brims....

And I pitied the'ioft.and'llie leaving; For I thought how sorrow lav, Like a pain, on two hearts sundered From each other for many a day.
