The Virginian commends tbo uctiou
ot tbe Board of Eolico Commissioners
in taking steps to break up improper
.?resorts on East Cove street. For years
these places buve been a bcautiul to the
(neighborhood, au outrage upou da
: cency and a llagraut abuse of tbe law.
;The street lias been virtuully closed us
? a thoroughfare fur respectable people
'and they bavo been compelled to put
themselves to much trouble and IUCOU
?yenieeee by reason of the same.
Tbe move is u good one and should
'. be i followed by others. Washington
'street and Avon should iiiiipiestioual'ly
( be clc-anBtd of these gilded resorts autl

These streets, in the very heart of tbe
.city and under tho very shadow of
I police headquarters, were years ago the
? requeuted short cuts to our churches
. ;'and places ol basinets by the good peo
'pie of Norfolk. They should be re
' iturned to this condition, and Tin
tfjViROiKiAN hopes that the police uu
?ithorities will push to successful liuiati
? the work they have taken in bund.
Nor shouid tho removal oi these peo?

many millions of dollars, saying noth

and other fodder for livo btock. .Most
I of this money is spent for articles the

duced at home. Tbis business has been
such a source of profit to the West, es?
pecially to tho nieat pachtrs, that tbe

'the kind in ibe world, has admitted
[that, the btieinoss of the South to bim
]is worth double that of Europe.

ten dillerent distributing pointu for
Western and Northern meat, fodder
