William L. Scott, looking cheerful and
contented, was at the Continental. His
mind seemed to be as calm as a kitchen
clock, and he spoke most enterlaingly
upon the various subjects. On politics
was a little coy. but be did say tome
thnt he was pleased with the President's
course. "He has," he said, "great self
reliance, good judgment and a good
opinion of it, and a bull-dog tei acity
that is remarkable. He has made less
mistakes so far than most Presidents
have done or many men Tronic! have done,
taking hold new, as he did.
"lint let's drop politics,"said he; "I
feel a great deal more interested in hus
ness matters. I am going down to Cape
Charles to night, the future city of the
Peninsula. I am interested in the. new
railroad over which the Pennsylvania
system is running its trains to Norfolk
and Fortress Monroe. This road, my
friend, is going to work a great revolu?
tion in the truck products that are be?
ing brought to this city and New York.
Ft w people in this country know that
within 7 homs of Philadelphia and 9
hours of New York they can reach a cli?
mate as mild and balmy as that of Mar?
seilles iu France. By taking the rail?
road to Cape Charles a magnificent boat
transports the ears by water to Fortress
Monroe and Norfolk, where it connects
with the different Southern railroad sys?
tems. At CapeCharles we are dredging
a harbor that will cost us from $250,000
to $300,000. with the intention of mak?
ing that the greatest oysteriug, fruit and
farm truck shippingpoint in the United
States, 'i he counties of Accomac and
Northampton in Virginia are in an al?
most tropical climate the year round.?
Land their is worth from $10 to $20 an
acre and it just as fertile as any of the
garden spots about Philadelphia or on
Long Island that cost from $000 to $S( 0
an acre. The" advantages of climate
gives the planter there sixwe-eks' advan?
tage over the Long Island farmer. Then
this line of railroad contracts to put the
products of the Virginia planter into
Fulton Market just as cheap, if not
cheaper, and just as quick as the Long
Island trucker can make his haul
across the city, paying ferriage, etc.?
For instance, a man at any of our new
points on the Peninsula picks his pro?
ducts in the evening and they will be in
Fulton Market the next morning at live
o'clock. Take a compass and draw a
circle over the lower Chesapeake, with?
in a radius of seventy-live miles of Cape
Charles, and you will lind that 18,000,000
bushels of oysters 'are gathered there
every year, while there aic only about
four millions taken from all the other
waters of the country. You can readily
see what a packing centre not only Phila?
delphia, bill Cape Charles, is likely to
become. About 3,000 bushels of oysters
can be taken from an acre, while wheat
holds on an average about 25 bushels.
Taking all these things into considera?
tion this new railroad down the pen?
insula has a far broader significance to
Philadelphia than most people have im?
agined.?Philadelphia Times April 181b.

Arrangements have been made to ac?
commodate the Accomac ttachers at
private boarding houses in Eastvillc.
Accomac expects her teachers to fully
acquit themselves. Let there be a
good attendance. Teachers are advised
to take the afternoon express train so as
to arrive at Eastville before night, meet
the committee of reception and be as?
signed to their boarding houses. Let as
large a number as possible go down in a
body on the Monday train SurT.
Mr. Editou:?A stranger prospect?
ing lor a home in a country new to him
will be sure to ask, among other leading
questions. Have you good water? Have
you good roads? In this favored sec?
tion of God's footstool, wc can answer
to the first quistion: Yes! as pure, as
sweet, as sparkling, as cool as that
gushing fiom mountain siele. To the
second, we hang cur heads in shame
when we reflect how much nature has
done for us, and how we have not only
refused to aid her but with willful and
remorseless disregard of cur best inter?
ests have- scratched our roids jus-t
enough to make them worse, and reply,
"tole'ble." To have good roads?solid,
smooth roads?clear of nits, holes,heavy
saudstretches and water puddles, is
with us an easy task if only the prop?
er means are < eloptcd to secure them.?
An outlay at first of not a large amount
would lay the foundation, and their fu?
ture care would be easy. It is well that
we should have a new Courthouse
"with all the modern impiovtments,"
but, we sadly need good roads on which
to drive to it. It is all very well to say,
as the genial and sympathetically enthu?
siastic Moveists iusist,that we can go to
the Courthouse on the C-a-i-r-s?but I
know certainly a dozen men who will be
compelled to use their own teams, be?
sides some two dozen more whose only
means of reaching there is to ride
"Shanks' Ware"?and all these need
good roads. Besides, people not only
wish to go to tlic O. II., but fcbey somc
tiines wish to go to church, the village,
the political meeting, to see neighbors,
friends and relatives, to haul their
trucks and produce to shipping point.?
To do this quickly, easily, safely, they
need Rood roads. It is for these people
and for none other, I wish to offer a
few suggestions about Our Bonds.
To our picso.nt system of road work?
ing there are at least four objections?
probably many more.
1. The ''Road Surveyor" or Over?
seer is appointed by the court "willy
nilly"?he must serve whether he will
or not. If he does his whole duty lie in?
curs the illwill of seven-tenths of his
neighbors on his "road precinct"?and
if lie don't they all grow] over the state
of the roads and he gets roundly ''set
up." Having never done anything on
the road save what his predecessor told
him?if he was ever there to be told?
he follows suit: fills the holes in wet
weather, seeks to have his roal level
from side to side, makes drainage by a
three cornered ditch, a couple of yards
long, cut bias. This does well tor a day
or two and his road is now ready for
travel, the grand jury, or the Court to
appoint his successor. (You nee hi't
tell it?but in a little while that road is
worse, if possible, than ever; the holes
won't grow solid, the water ponds mak?
ing a "frog hollow," or if near a school
house a natatoriuiu or a skating rink!)
and his successor doetli likewise.
'J.. The roads under the present system
are worked only, as a rule, in the leisure
time, and this is usuallj when too wet
for any real good, even if fully worked
over. Hence no good roads.
?. Th? system hears unequally, and is
therefore unjust. A landowner having
five horses on the roads does no more
than his neighbor who is not the owner
of a buffalo steer?while the woman
landowner does nothing, her teams cut?
ting up the roads equally with the ten?
ant who must give Iiis labor or pay his
4. Offering only the roads themselves
as evidence, the system is a failure.
Whether this is because under this sys?
tem the work is not done?or the fail?
ure is inherent in the system itself,
matters little. The fact remains.
Having assumed that our present
system of road making is a failure, iL
follows I should suggest another. I am
awaie that the Solons of our late legis?
lature "evolved from their inner con?
sciousness" a road law which it author?
ized the Board of Supervisors to adopt
if it saw proper?it did not see proper
and 1 think the people should be duly
thankful therefor. I confess to formu?
late a good scheme for roadwork is by
no means easy, but as 1 decide, nothing
?only suggest. 1 proceed briefly out?
I. Let the Board of Supervisors take
charge of the roads and see that they
are kept in order.
The board to levy a tax upon per?
sonal and real property at such rates as
may be by them considered sufficient
for their working.
o. The Board to let to contract such
lengths of roads as may be advisable to
the lowest bidder for a term of years?
the contractor lo give bond fur the
faithful performance of his duties.
4. All persons not owning sufficient
real or personal property to urea:e a tax
of-to work-days each vear on
the road oreciuct whereon he lives?or
in default pay a line uf one dollar each
day. As an aid let such proportion of
the railroad tax as may not be turned
over to the public schools be used for
road purposes. This creates no new
olilee contractor being substituted for
"surveyor," with pay and bonded.to do
The tax above what is now.levied,will
not be heavy. It Will bear equally.?
The property-holder paying out of his
means?the non-property holder giving
Ins work. The machinery is simple.
As con.pared with the results which
ought to be obtained tb.6 cost will be
small. This scheme seems to me to of?
fer something substantial. At all events
it will give, properly executed, what
our present system never can, viz: good
If a better, more simple, cheaper
method which will give us good roads is
suggested, by all means we should adupt
that, in the meantime let those inter?
ested think over the matter clearly and
fully, and then?act. One thing at
least is certain, our roads are very bad?
distressingly bad. The wear and tear of
wagons, carts and carriages, the strain
and injury to teams, taken with all the
smaller loads necessarily hauled, indict
a yearly loss which would go far to put
them in the good condition they should
be. The gain to the fanner in hauling
Iiistrucks to the point of shipment lo
be able to carry fifteen if not twenty
barrels in his wagon, (or a proportion?
ate number in his cart,) instead of the
ten or twelve he now does, would be
enormous. Such a result could be at?
tained on our roads if properly worked
?and I do not mean that they should be
shell roads either.
The better the roads the more rapid
and easy the haulage?gaining in time,
weight carried and teams needed. By
whatever scheme letter roads are at?
tained immense gain to the county,
must follow. The importance of this
step in our county's progress is too
great to be lightly considered.
Coming back to my starting point
(on the smooth, solid, easy moving
roads under the above system,) we shall
have removed a huge stumbling block in
the path ot the prospecting land buyer,
who, with capital to invest, wishes to
settle among us?and he becomes afree
holdingcitizen. Satisfied with the good
things Accomack provides in such prod?
igal abuuda ice he urges his neighbor,
and his neighbors' neighbor, living in a
less favored region, to come and settle
in this Eden. Eloquently describing
the beautiful county?the luxuries of
land and sea?he winds up with what he
believes the culmination of argument,
(and will surely ( pen the way for their
coming)?"and the roads are first-class!"
