Letter from Farmvllle.
Fabmville, March 21, 1871.
To the Editor of the State Journal:
Our people aro all aroused npou the
vote to be taken on Thursday next, whether
or not we shall movo the court-house to
this town; and from all that I can glean,
there will bo a decided majority in favor
of the removal. The measure meets with
violent opposition in some sections of the
county, but it is really gratifying to notico
how beautifully tho Republicans and tho
Conservatives (alias Democracy disguised)
fraternize in Farmvillo upon this question,
and I am forcibly reminded of that scrip
tural injunction, "Brethren, how sweet to
dwell together in harmony and in love."
The despised Radical of yesterday is the
urbane gentleman of to-day, and until the
object desired is obtained, the Republican
will have a cordial welcome to the social
privileges of tho sons of Farmville! IVhat
wttl le their fate after tho election ?
I hope, however, a brighter era is dawn
ing for us, and that our peoplo may soon
be guided by that wiso sentiment,that free
dom of speech and the freedom of the press
are the palladiu of American liberty.
I am felicitating myself at the prospect
of an early demise of the Legislature.
Their whole course of action has been gov
erned by prejudice, partisan fooling, and,
alas! a reckless expenditure of tho public
funds, with no fruits to gather therefrom
in many instances. To oro is human to
forgive divine j but wo ore not called upon
to hold our peace when men grow blatant
and puffed up with daily commissions of
gross violations of the laws of
justice and equity — endorsing the
dogma of the tyrants that might makes
right, violating laws of contract, and tar
nishing the honor of this proud and ven
erated old State, in withholding the pay
ment of just debts duo tho framera of tho
constitution of Virginia ; while, with un
blushing effrontery and unprecedented
prodigality they are lavishing per diem,
unasked and uudeserved, upon members of
both branches of the Legislature who ab
sent themselves two weeks before the ad
journment of said body. Such blind, par
tisan and partial legislation is an insult to
the people and a disgrace to their repre
sentatives. I trust the majority of that
body are politically dead. I wish them a
stormy journey on tho briny waves of Salt
Rivers. I'll send you another greeting in
a few days. Glenmokb.
PISCATORY.
Showing how cheaply valuable fish
may be multiplied, the Charleston Journa
has the following :
BASS FISH IN THE DELAWARE.
Some of the descendants of tho small
colony of bass that General W. VV. Shriver,
of this city, transplanted in the Potomac
seventeen years ago are boing transferred
to stock in the Delaware. About two
weeks ago, seven hundred and six blaca
bass were taken from the Potomac at
Harper's Ferry and transported in huge
tanks to the Delaware river at Eastou.
Forty-six hours were occupied in tho trans
portation of the fish, during which about
one hundred died, but the remainder swam
off briskly upon being placed in the river,
and their descendants will doubtless af
ford rare sport to tho disciples of Isaac
Walton on tho upper waters of tho Dela
ware during many years to come.
The bass in the Potomac, which ara now
very numerous and grow to large size, were
first placed there by Mr. Shriver in 1854.
In tho spring after the opening of the Bal
timore and Ohio railroad, he carried about
a dozen fish from the Ohio in perforated
buckets made to fit in tbo water tank of a
locomotive, and placed them in the canal
basin at Cumberland, where they had ac
cess to the river. They are very prolific—
each female producing about thirty thous
and eggs in a season—and their boldness
and strength protect their young from the
ravages of other fish. The hundreds of
thousands of bass now in the Potomac
have all sprung from the dozen or more
that Mr. Shriver placed there, and he may
yet live to sea the Delaware and other
streams east of the Alloghany mountains
fully stocked with excollent fish as tbe ro
sult of his foresight and philanthropy.
Shad.—The Scottsville Register says :
"The shad lives but a siDgle year. It is
hatched in the early summer—descends
the stream as soon as largo enough—
feeds and fattens in tho winter at tho
mouth of tho stream —ascends in tho
spring to deposit its spawn—descends to
die at the bottom of the ocean."
Our cotemporary is mistaken in his facts.
The male shad does not become fecund
until it is one year old, and tho female
does not carry spawn until the ago of two.
"When two years old both sexes are fecund
and seek the river together. These are
half-grown, or two years old. The third
season they are large fish, and may be
termed threo years old." Sea Norris on
American Fish Culture, p. 162. The same
author on p. 103 says : "Tho impression
that prevails among fishermen, both here
and in Europe, that shad die after spawn
ing, the first year, comes only from the
familiar fact that fishes are in a meagre
condition after spawning, aud that some of
the weaker probably do die, and are seen
floating."— Richmond Enquirer.
Tame Codfish. —Mr. Auckland, in a
recent number of Land and Water, gives
an interesting account of a visit paid by
him to a pond containing tr.mo codfish at
Port Logan, Wigtonshire. The property
in question belongs to a gentleman by the
name of M'Dougall, and consists of an
amphitheatre about ono hundred feet in
diameter, hollowed out of the solid rock
by the sea. All egress from this is pre
vented by a barrier of loose stones, through
which water passes freely. On approach
ing tho shore of the pond many codfish of
great size wore seen ; and whon a servant
woman who had chargoof the fish ap
proached with somo mussels, the surface of
the water was perfectly alive with the
struggling fish. They came close to
the edge, and after a little while permitted
Mr. Buckland to take hold of them,
scratch them on the back, and play with
them in various ways. Among other ex
periments tried by him was that of hold
ing a mussel in his hand, and allowing the
fish to swallow his hand in the effort to
obtain the mussel. These fish furnish to
the proprietor an ample supply of excel
lent food, the flavor being considered much
superior to that of the cod taken in the
open sea. Whenever needed for the table
a selection can readily bo made from the
most promising of thoso at hand, and tho
fish secured without any dificulty.
I- A correspondent of Land and Water, re
the pond, fifty years ago, thero was a blind
codfish in tho pool, which tho woman who
had the pond in charge used to feed with
limpits taken from the rock. When this
fish came to the surface with the others
she caught it with her fingers, sat down
with it upon a stool, having a pail of lim
pits, shelled, in her lap, with which sho
fed it out of an iron spoon, the fish seeming
to enjoy it very much. After feeding she
returned it to the pond. The writer avers
this to bo a fact, although he evidently

What a pity that a young man, the hope oi his
country, the pride of his parents, should bo snatched
from all prospects and eujoyments of life by the con
sequence of deviating from the path of nature and
Indulging in a certain secret habit. Such person*.
must, before contemplating

j DR. J. J. LAWRENCE—Dear Sir: Your Koskoo
haa worked wonders In my family. My daughter haa
been a sufferer from Scrofula since childhood. She
lost thirty-one pieces of bono from her ankle, several
from her arm, besides having ulcers in several parts
of the body. Whilst iv this condition she commenced
taking your Koskoo—it acted like a charm on her;
under its use the ulcers gradually healed, and her
Senoral health greatly improved. It certainly saved
er much Buffering, and perhaps her life. I regard
Koskoo a specific for all scrofulous affections. Yonr
Koskeo also cured my wife of dyspepsia, from which
she suffered greatly. She 1b now iv better health
than ahe haa been In five years.
With the highest regard, ,
I am gratefully yours, Ac,

each ingredient highly extolled by our best and most
progressive clinical investigators. I have tested, ita

recomjnending it. In my opinion, it ia the best com
pound of ita class ever put before the public—ex

and Invigorator of the animal forces, aiding dlgea

HKLMBOLD'S KXTBAOT OF BUOHU—Hundred*
nffor en in silence, and hundreds of other, apply
ainly to druggists and doctor., who either merely
tantalize them with the hop. of a cure or apply
emedies which make them worse. I would not wish
to assert anything that would do Injustice to the
filleted, bnt lam obliged to ssy that although it
may b* produced from excessive exhaustion of the
powers of life, by laborious employment, unwhole
some air and food, profuse menstruation, the use of
tea and coffee, aud frequent ohlldbirth, it 1. far of
tener caused by direct irritation, applied to the mu
uo membrane ef the vagina itself.
When reviewing the causes of these distressing
complaints, it Is most painful to coatemplate the at
tendant evils consequent upon them. It Is bnt siin
le Justice to the subject to enumerate a few of the
many additional oau.es which »o largely affect th.
Ifo, health, and happiness of woman in all classes of
society, and which, consequently, affect more or lee*
irectly, the welfare of the entire human family.—
The mania that inlets for precocious education and
marriage, causos the year, that nature designed for
corporeal developement to be wasted and perverted
in the restraint, of dree., the early confinement of
school, aud especially in the unhealthy excitement of
he ball-room. Thus, with the body half-clothed
I and the mind unduly excited by pleasure, pervert
ing In midnight revel the hour* designed by nature
foi sleep and rest, the work of destruction is half
accomplished.
In consequence of this early strain upon her sys.
' tern, unnecessary effort is required by the delicate
votary to retain her situation in school to a later
day, thus aggravating the evil. When one exolte*
ment fs over, another in prospective keep, the mind
morbidly sensitive to impression, while the now con
■tant restraint offaahlonable drees, alxolutely for
bidding the exercise Indispensable to the attainmen
and retention of organic health and strength; the
exposure to night air; the sudden change of tempe
ratnre, the complete prostration produced by exces
sive dancing, must, of necessity, produce their legiti
mate effect. At last, an early marriage caps the oil
max of misery, and the unfortunate one, hitherto
so utterly regardless of the plain dictates and reason
trances of her delicate nature, become, an unwill
ng subject of medical treatment. This is bnt a
truthful picture of the experience ef thousands o
ur young women.
Long before the ability to exercise the functions of
he generative organs, they require an education of
befr peculiar nervous system, composed of what is
called the tissue, which 1., i common with the fe-
B east and lips, evidently nnder the control of
emotions and associations at an early period
f life ; and, a. we .ball subsequently see, these emo
tions, when excessive, lead, long before puberity, te
habits which sap the very life of their victim* ere

nature ha* self-completed their development.
