This importance or giving a good support
to a local paper, is not fully understood by
many. Some even do not consider th it u
newspaper is of any advantage to the com
muaity In which it in published. There

i here. There are those doinff business
here who never advertise, and some who
in not even an much as take our paper.
U'e never shall beg patronage, ef such peo
ple. We bare got along very well without
it thus fur. While they, in common with
the real of the community, gain a (treat
deal from the fact ot a daily paper being
published here, they give us not a cents'
worth of patronage. Wo contend that this
is not doing the fair thing by us. But we
Iiuvo one consolation, and that Is when this
ceases to he remunerative tbote are other
fields in which w can engage. We never
have yet got down to begging for patronage,
and never ahull. As Boon as we become
convinced of the (act that this community
dees net appreciate a dully paper sufficient
ly to give it a good healthy support, we
ahull seek some locality where they will do
better by ns.

If the dramatic muse baa taken flight
from the English speaking part of the old
world, as is averred by those who periodi
cally write jeremiads upon the decline of
the dramatic art, and has not taken passage
to this side or the Atlantic, as is generally
acknowledged, it would seem probable that
she has found her way to Australia. There
resides in Melbourne a genius named Cap
per who caps all dramatists of this or any
other age in the fecundity and originality
of bis dramatic genius. Yet a young man,
he has written twenty-three dramas, mostly
in five acts, and bns printed some of them,
though none of them appear to have been
performed, a circumstance the less surpris
ing when it is known that the subjects are
tnken from the irly history of Egypt,
Assyria, and Greece, and that trades and
professions of the present day are introduced
in scenes dated a Bcore or two centuries ago.
Taking structure, language, and characters
altogether, it would seem that Mr. Capper
has made bis dramas entirely '-out of his
own bend' without the advantage ot ever
having seen or rend a play In his lift'.
Representative Lynch, of Maine, referring
to the charges in the newspapers that bis
frank was being used by a publishing house
in New York, says that while in the city,
recently, the publisher ef the Mercantile
Journal informed him that he intended to
publish his CLynch's) speech on the finances
and inquired if he would not order a certain
number of oopies. .Mr Lynch did order a
large number of copies, and with thekuowl.
edge of the Post Mafier iu New York, he
sent the papeis through the country to post
masters only, and this accounts for the bays
full of 1'tlers in Cincinnati. Congressmen
are in the habit of sending away papers con
taining their speeches, the only difference
in this case being that the mailing was done
in New York Instead of Washington. Mr.
Lynch is a member of the House Post-office
Committee, and has always voted in favor
of abolishing the franking privelige, but
while it Is the law be does all be can to
make It odious.
A rather novel marriage ceremony took
place in the upper end of Charlotte county.
Virginia, last week. The water was high
and the bridges all gone; the parson lived
on one side and the bride and bridegroom
on the other. But "Amor vinclt omnia"
they were not to be outdone. So tho parson
stood on one bank and tho bridal party on
the other all decked out In their finery
and in the mud. And thus they were united.
But a most amusing scene took place before
they wore pronounced man and wile. A
difliculty arose hew the parson was to get
the license. Tho groom was called upon,
but bo net being able io Bwiro, refus-d to
take it over. At length, one of his waiters
volunteered. There was a log over the
stream, but it was covered with water two
feet deep. He hesitated a while, but finally
concluded to straddle it. We are happy to
say he made the trip, and deposited the
necessary document with the parson, which
enabled hiin to tie the knot as effectually as
it was ever done before.
