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 ...

But it is not missed from among its fellows, and thus 0:10 by one they all depart, and soon wo forget that each limp, leaf lias fulfilled its appointed destiny in the great, kingdom of vegta-ble life. The sweet; tiny flower rears its modest bead above the green sod, unfolds its beautiful petals and scatters rose fragrance upon the pressing breeze. With delight we inhale I lie sweet perfume and admire its modest, beauty. With a firm, unavailing regret it passes from oiu memory as we turn to ad? mire for a time some fresh I v open? ing buds.
