No m.yttkk should engage the earlier attention of our present teg Mature than the oyster question. It merits t-hc precedence weclaim for it because the oyster law as it now stands is merely a dead letter upon our statute book. The legislature which passed it having provided no means for its enforcement it is now transgressed with impunity by the citizens of our own and other States, and as a consequence thereof, the Mate is being robbed of a considerable revenue by the rapid depletion of her oyster beds. Not only is legislation necessary to avert this evil,' but a stiil greater one the breaches "of the peace to which it now leads, make that duty imperative. The necessity for that legislation we aie glad to see is fully appreciated by our Representative Senator Fletcher. A.resolution looking to the pro tectio...

How Animals Treat Themselves. M. (T. Delaunay, in a recent communication to the Biological Society, observed that medicine, as practiced by animals, is thoroughly em pirieal, but that the same may be said of that practiced by inferior human races, or in other words, by the majority of the human species. Animals instinctively choose such food as is best suited to them. Air. Delaunay maintains that the human race also shows this instinct and blames medical men for not paying sufficient respect to the likes and dislikes of the patients, which he be ieves to be a guide that may be depended on. Women are more often hungry than men, and they do not like the same kinds of food; nevertheless, in asylums for aged poor men and women are put on precisely the same regimen. Infants scarcely weaned are given a diet suitable |or adults, meat and wine, which they dislike, and which disagree, with them.— Mr.Delaunay investigated thisquestion in the different asylums of Paris, and ascertained that ch...

"Petroleum first knocked the spots oft' the whale oil business of New England, and now it is clipping into its spruce and tamarack gum industry at a fearful rate. Here's a lump of (letroleum we haw, just received." The confectioner slapped his hand on a large oblong block that resembled a piece of marble, "A few days ago," said liff, "that came out of the ground in Pennsylvania, a dirty, greenishbrown fluid, with a smell that could knock au ox down.

THB prospect of the railroad being built through our county is at this time very flattering. We are now authoritatively informed that the officers of the proposed road have control of the Eastern Shore road, which has heretofore been an obstacle to their progress, the bridge across the Pocomoke is being built by contract, and that a large force of employees of the new road "broke ground" at Pocomoke on New Years' Day. These facts seem to justify the prediction that, in a few months now the snort of the iron horse will soon be heard in our midst. Indeed, it is now postively asserted by those who ought to be informed in the matter, that if the weather is favorable, Acconiac, C.

The Fall of Richmond. One of the largest, audiences that we have ever seen at a lecture in Augusta gathered at the First Baptist Church last evening, and all those present were amply repaid for their attendance. Dr. J. 1. Burrows, of Norfolk, Va., the lec tnrer of the evening, is an exceedingly pleasing speaker. His description of the evacuation of Rich moud was a vivid picture ot word painting, and, coming from an eyewitness and a close observer, cailied with it an added interest.— Never have v\e heard the story of those three eventful days in April, 18(53, better told. All those who heard him have abetter idea of the terrible suspense of the citizens of Richmond when "the Confederates wore going out and the Federals were coming. Dr. Burrows began his lecture by stating that Richmond was never captured, but was abandoned.— Never a dwelling or a stable in Richmond was struck by the enemy's shot or shell, and not a Federal soldier entered it, save as a prisoner of war, until the remn...

BY BKFIJRENOK to another column it will be seen that the oyster question is now receiving the at tehtion of our Legislature. Itliaving been demonstrated to the satisfaction of everyone that oyster laws are worthless unless mejuis are provided to enforce them, an effort will l>e made to remedy the defects of our laws in that respect at this ses sion of tha Legislature. With that object in view, a bill prepared by the committee which has the matter under consideration, and approved by the Governor is soon to be introduced. In the preparation of that bill the committee wisely, we think, are seeking the views of those who have some practical knowledge of the oyster question, and the presujnption is that their opinions will influence the committee to some extent That being the case, it is important that wise ■ c...

Wliy January Ist is New Year. Every one knows that January Ist is the beginning of the year, but not every one Knows wliy it is so. It marks no natural division of time nor any event in the world's history which would give it such distinction. The winter solstice—that is, the period when the sun appeal's to reach its greatest southern declension, or furthest point south of the occurs December 22, nine days before the new year begins. The snnimer solstice, another natural division of time, occurs on .June 22. a point nearly as far removed from the new year as the calendar permits. The natural divisions of time which suggest them selves at once to the practical observer, are the winter and summer solstices and the vernal and autumnal equinoxes, periods at which the days and nights have equal length or their greatest difference. These having' been neglected, the moon's phases Would seem to have been most likely to be fixed upon. But imperial Ciesar, who in 4(5 B.C. gave us our new year...

Postage Stamps. Some things are so common that few apprehend the ingenuity and labor required to makb theitl.— Postage stamps, for instance, are in everybody's mouth, except the wise one's, who use a wet sponge, but scarcely any one kno\Vs how they are manufactured. In printing them steel nlates are Used, on which two hundred stamps are engraved. Two men are kept hard at work covering them with the colored inks and passing them to a man and girl, who are equally busy printing them With large rolling liand-presses. After the small sheets of p;ipor upon Which the two hundred stamps are engraved have dried enough _jhey are sent into another rOom and gummed. The gum used is a peculiar composition, made of the powder of drio.i vegetables mixed with Water, which is better than a toy. other material, for instance gum arable, which cracks the paper badly. The paper is also of a perfect texture, somewhat similar to that used for bank-notes.— After having been again dried, this time on little...
