OUR contemporary the Crisfleld Leader, in commenting upon an article in THE ENTERPRISE of last week in regard to legislation on the oyster question seeks by and ingenious argument to throw the burden of the failure to secure con current legislation between the States of Maryland and Virginia on the latter. That conclusion is reached by the statement that <: one-sided proj>ositions" were only offered by Virginia and for that reason refused. That statement being supported % no other data than the refusal of Virginia to surrender her rights in Pocomoke souiid without getting any equivalent in lemrii, a casual glance is only necessary to show the fallacy of the position taken by our contern the only e,OUl tpWMkrr' h vi*' ma t,] ni oft'ereTT^fo!e Virginians can be designated as one-sided proposition wa...

Proud Cobblers. Years ago, there was in New York city an old shoemaker who had become wealthy through his trade and investments in real es tate. Ilis daughters, ambitious to move in fashionable life persuaded him, after much teasing and coaxing, to set up a "carriage. They then asked that a coat of arms be painted upon the carriage nloor. BL I"Yes," 1 "Yes," said the old man, with grim humor characteristic of HBP craft, "you may have a coat ofgphvnis, but it must be one of my own You may paint a lapstone supported by an awl and a hammer." The shoemaker's daughters continned to ride in a carriage not decorated with a coar-of arms. But what they would not allow, their father to do—to tell the story of his business upon his carriage—a London shoemaker did do. His name was James Lackington, and lie added to the profits of his cobbler's stall by selling a few secondhand books. Abandoning shoemaking for bookselling, his success was such that in a few years he was owner of' what he called ...

A HILL lias passed the House oi Representatives, pensioning the survivors of the Mexican War, except those under political disabilities. The bill being passed by a vote of 227 to 4G shows that it had the sanction of both political parties, and that a sense of justice, at last outweighing political considerations, had constrained them to pay this tribute for gr.llant service rendered in that war. It was not passed without opposition, however, objection being made to its passage on the Republican side of the House on the ground that most of the pensioners were from the Southern States. The chief opptnent of the bill, though, was such an insignificant member, one BROWNE from Indiana, that, we have not the disposition to attach the odium incurred .by the puny effort of that individual to the Republican party. The bill, however, would hav...

What Constitutes a Year. We have the names of our months from the Roman, with whom we find our present calendar evolved 111 the time of the Csesars. It was tbuud very difficult to adjust the j measure of years correctly. The o flrst measure of a year was 12 lunations, which was a period equal to 354 days 8 hours 48 minutes and 36 seconds. This was dropped for the time of the sun's passing through the signs of the zodiac, winch was 365 days 5 hours 48 minutes and 49 seconds. The solar year was then fixed at 365 days, and the odd hours were dropped; bnt as they could not be annihila ted and accumulating threatened to change the character of the sea- son, 44 15. C., Julius Ciesar made a readjustment of matters. Assuming the overplus of time to be six hours daily he decreed that every year shonld have 305 (lavs, except .the fourth, which should have 366. The repeated day was to be the 14th of February, the sixth before the kalends of March, and the year was therefore was calledjbissexti...

Five Cents a Day. The cumulative power of money is a fact very generally known, but not generally appreciated. There are few men living to-day of the age of sixty-five, hanging on to existence by some slender employment, or pensioners, it may be, on the bounty of kindred or friends, but who might be exercising the smallest particle of thrift rigidly afhered to in the past, have set aside a respectable sum which would materially help them to main tain their independence iu their old age. Let us take the small and insignificant sum of five cents, which we daily pay to have our boots blackened, to ride Jij a car a distance wo are well able to walk, Or to procure a bad cigar we are better without, and see what its value is in the course of years. We will suppose a boy of fifteen by blacking his own boots, or saving his ear fare or going without his cherished -cigarette, puts by five cents a day, in one year he saves $18.25, which being banked bears interest at the rate of five percent, ...

jJtifWa ACCOM AC COURT-HOUSE, VA SATURDAY, : : MARCH 22, 1884 Entered at the PostollJce at Acootriao C. 11.. Va., as second-class matter. A certain set of Northern Radicals continually slander and viilify the people of the South—and es jieeially is. this true some months before *and during a presidential campaign. Innate diabolism can alone explain the malignity of these people. A specimen lie was recently sent from Washington to the Chicago Tribune, based, the correspondent averred, upon the statement of one of the Senators on the Copiah Committee. In brief, this dispatch declared that at the Mardi Gras ball in New Orleans Jefferson Davis sat in a box "draped with Confederate flags;" that a floral sword was presented him bearing the inscription "To the President." The New Orleans Times has prompt ly nailed this lie. It says, no Con federate flags be seen, and the only sword was One given to Gen. Lee's daughters, bearing simply the legend "The sword of Lee." To still further disprov...

Japan's Revolution. , "Who rules Japan?" "A young emperor 34 years old, who belongs to a dynasty claimed to be 2,600 years old, or starting 700 years before Christ. His name is Mutchilo, and his father died in 1867, after reigning twenty years. Immediately after his father's death the tycoon or chief demagogue of the people,'abdicated,and that made the Japanese revolution." '-Ts this country really old!"

Feeding; Cattle Upon Small Farms. It is very satisfactorily proved that two-year old meat is the most profitable. A beast of that age can be made to weigh 1,200 to 1,400 pounds, if it is of the right kind, and an average daily growth of two and a lialf pounds is very often made. There can be no question that an animal that will sell at S7O to SBO at the age of two years can be raised at a good profit. There can be no question, either, that such an animal can be fed upon one acre of laud or even less, if the right crops are grown. Stall feeding or yarjrt feeding is much more profitable than pasturing, and many small farms might easily be managed so as to feed ten or twenty beef animals yearly. For in the first place there would be a very large product of manure to keep the soil rich enough to produee sufficient crops to feed these animals on the coarse products and leave the grain raised to be sold. Let us consider the case of a 100 acre farm for instance. Ten acres of mangels or tur...
