Representative colored Virgin? ians called recently on the Presi dent of the United States. An ad? dress as will be seen by reference to our columns was read?aceompa nied by letters from Gov.

Tlie object of their visit as expressed in their address, being uto foster a spirit of confidence and mutual co operation between the white and colored peo? ple of tho State" and the fact that they thought it proper to secure for their address the endorsement of representative {rfii'te men of Virginia would seem to indicate, that some of the color ed people of Virginia are begin? ning to realize in what direction their true interest lie. The decla? ration contained in the address "that none should in the future mass our people upon the preju? dices of the past to obtain office and power," is especially signifi? cant. That they...

1-. Skilful Cultivation. Skilful cultivation should be tbe aim of every one who raises plants and crops. To make gardening and farming profitable, it is necessary to have something in return lor every slroKc that is made, and for every dollar invested. Even when only a few house plants are cared for, we expect to see growth and bloom in repay for our care, if not, cur interest in them would soon be lost. We devote an acre of land to a certain crop; it costs for the season the interest for a year on the investment made for it, beside the expense, of preparation, manur? ing, cultivating, harvesting, mark? eting, etc. Our crop is but half what it might be, or what good cultivation has proved might be ob? tained. The time and expense of preparation, of sowing, and of cub. tivarion. have been as much as for a full crop, and the cost of harvest? ing and other expenses but little less; but a part of the land was too wet, and the planting could not be done early, as it should have been, and...

Tlie Diifed Stafcs Senate. A writer in Harper's Weekly gives tlie following facts about an interesting body: "The Senate never dies." This is the parliam? entary way of saying that the terms of office of the Senators, or of any large number of them, never expire simultaneously, as the terms of all the members uf the House of Rep reseii tat ive's expirecvery two years. The Senate does its work with that prodig-lityof leisure which only an immortal body can assume to have and with a dignity that Is the des pair of the boisterous body which sits in the other end of the Capitol. The Senate Chamber, with only seventy six members, is not crowd? ed as the House is with three hun? dred and twenty-live. The seats are fuither apart, the aisles are never jammed, as the aisles of the House always are, and Senators move about from one side of the Chamber to the other with free? dom, without causing confusion or detracting from the dignity of the proceedings.

Driving ;<t Night. How to illuminate a rood in Iron! of the horses in driving at night is an important matter. The usual side lamps on car? riages, or the attaching of a lamp to the dash board, fail to reflect the light where it is most wanted, and the suspending of a lantern from.'the front axle is objectionable for many reasons, but is the host plan for shedding the light where it is most needed that we have seen tried. But a Philadelphia, physician suggests the attaching of the lan? tern to the breast collar of the harness, which he says he has tried with perfect satisfaction; and he has evidently had some experi ence with the ordinary methods of lightning, for he says the various forms of dash lights are pretty much tho same, in that they put the light just where, it is not want? ed, illuminating tho horses tail,hips and the buggy thills with a brilli anc.y quire uuneccessary, which in tensities the blackness of (he shad ow cast by them just where one wishes to see mo...

Fences and Fencing1. There was a time- when ninety live per cent, of the fencing in this country was stone or mil fence. In certain localities stone will al? ways remain the cheapest material. Each spring tho frost has brought to the surface a crop of stones that must be cleared away before the land can be tilled, and the easiest way to get rid of them is to make them into fences. But outside of these localities, where the Virginia rail fence has almost exclusively prevailed, fences and fencing pre? sent important economic problems. Fences, so statistics show, are the mo^t considerable item of expense to the fanner. The fanners id'this country have more invested in fen? ces than they have in live stock, and to maintain these fences is more expensive than to keep the farmers supplied with implements and machines. We have much more than the really necessary amount of fencing. Wo fence, not to keep our own stock in, but to keep everybody else's out. This is contrary to the old English ...
