ACCOMAC C?IKT-IIOLSE. VA.
SATURDAY, ?1 ULY 11, lSSf>:
Kritcml at the Postofliee at Accomac
C\ IL. Ya.. as secou?-class matter.
Our readers, again have submit?
ted to them through the columns of
Tiik Kktehmhsk the premium
list ol the Kastern Shore Agrienl
Inral Fair for thisyear,amlthrough
us each and everyone of tlie
Kastern Shore are invited to coin
I-et?? for any of the prizes to be
awarde d. The list of premiums as
will be seen, is long and compre?
hensive and many of them are real?
ly worth the effort to secure them,
Ti e moneyed consideration of?
fend too, to induce us lo exhibit
our stork, farm products, agricul?
tural implements &c, is enough in
itself to make the display at our
Fair creditable tons in every re
sject but that should be the least
incentive which should artnate us.
Ih mes are being sought in our
mid.vt at this time by parties, many
of whom, will doubtless attend our
Fair, who will bring with them
capital and labor, if they can be ill?
umed to "cast their lot* with us*'
and it is im]>ortniit that we should
siin ulate them to do so and to buy
upi.ur waste laiid, by showing to
them really what they are calla?
ble of producing.
The farmers themselves by coming
together comparing their methods
of farming, exhibiting their pro
dm:ts, etc-, can learn of each other
lessons which may be cf inestim?
able value. New and advanced
ideas are gathered and utilized by
contact with our fellow men, and
I he stimulus if applied, to learn of
rur neighbors, may be worth much
iii<>re to us than the mere dollars
which are offered to us as success?
ful exhibitors. Then let each of us
who have anything worthy of ex?
hibit ion carry our offering to the
managers of the Fair and seek' to
w in the prizes which are offered
If we do not secure them no
I mm is dent to us, we will have
?ontributcd our part to the promo?
tion of a worthy enterprise and
caMiut help being benefit ted in
mis (rj'ctuit-uuigaTilMr- ilib complete"
success of our Fair in previous
>ears, has not been that the exhib?
its were not creditable, but that
there was such a scarcity of them
in some departments. Quantity as
much as quality contributes to the
Mtccess of a Fair,and the managers
.-hould tee to it that that want is
met in the future. How that ob?
ject can be accomplished we douot
know, but until many people can
be interested to bring such offer?
ings as they have, rather than
ihe few, the Fair will lack In hav?
ing the great mass of people inter?
ested iii a manner which is so es
tential to its success. It is grati
lying iu this connection, however,
lobe informed that not only this
difficulty will be remedied but every
other one w hich may stand in the
way of success. To that end the
grounds have been improved, facil?
ities for showing exhibits to best
advantage have been increased,
.arger premiums have been offer
cd, eveiything iu fact, has been
and will be done in the power of
the managers to contribute to the
success of 1 he Fair, but however
well everything may be ordered,all
depends upon the people's contri?
butions of such as they have. 11
they do their duty all will be well
and the managers if possible should
tec to it that they be not allowed
to be wanting in it.
Delegates to the Democratic
? State Convention which meets in
Richmond on the 20th inst., have
been appointed in most of the
counties and the fact is gratifying
and augurs well for the success of
the party, that most or all of them
will be nuinstructed and freetosup?
port the best and most available
candidates. In this hour of Vir?
ginian's peril all cf her true sous
teem willing to lay aside all
their bickerings, forthe presentpei
boual preferences seem to have been
forgotten and naught save what the
best interests of the State requires,
seems to be a matter of controversy.
The question likely to engage
the attention of that convention
will not be, which of our friends
we can elevate to position of trust
and honor, but who will be the
strongest candidates and will be
the most faithful and efficient offi?
cers, when elected. With that
spirit actuating our people, who
the candidates will be, of course
can only bea mutter of speculation.
Unlike the opposing party, they
will have hp boss to dictate to them
iu their choice and left free as they
will be to select Hiebest men. as
candidates they can hardly fail to
choose well aud to have victory
crown their labors.
?EiyS IN BIIIKF.
In an address last Tuesday,
the Hon. John E. Massey announ?
ced tliat.he was a candidate for
Governor^ and " would submit his
idaiins to the Democratic conven?
tion and abide by its decision.
The sheriff and jail guards of
Greenville county, Va., have been
indicted. The indictment grew out
of the escape of the negro murder?
er Henry Moore from jail. Moore
was to have been hanged hist Fri?
day July 3d.
The delegates of Richmond to the
Democratic State Convention have
beeu appointed. All of them are
niiiustructed, but those who have
taken the trouble to look into the
matter express the opinion that two
thirds of the delegates chosen were
in favor of Gen. Lee's nomination.
It is stated that Judge Walter 11.
Staples ha? writ ten a letter, in which
he says he is not a candidate for
Governor cd' Virginia, and does not
seek the democratic nomination,
aud that if it conies to him it must
he entirely unsolicited upon his part
and to induce his acceptance it
mist be very clear that such is the
general wish of the party.
Miss Cleveland's book appeared
last Tuesday. It comprises three
hundred pages, and is entitled
??George Elliot's Poetry, and Other
Studies, by Kose E. Cleveland." It
contains nine essays, several of
which are new. Among the subjects
are History, Old Rome and Hew
France, Chivalry, Joan of Ate, Al
timistic Faith, Reciprocity, and The
Monastery. The demand for the
book is such that a third edition
has been put to press.
It is said that a society of hus?
bands has been formed in Balti?
more for the purpose of protecting
its members from the lash pen?
alties of the wife beating law.
When a member thinks his wife
needs a whipping he calls upon an
other member to peifonn the cere?
mony. The law applies to a bus
band when he beats hisown wife, not
another fellow's. The only protec?
tion the woman has is in charging
the man who beats her with assault.
Address of the Executive Committee.
To Farmers of Virginia:
At the Farmers' Couveutiou held
iu Iiichmond in April last, a plan
of organization was passed for the
Fanners' Assembly of the StaNj of
Virginia, which Asse tu hly is to
meet on Tuesday after the secoial
Monday iu August next in the city
As the present head of this organi?
zation, it becomes the duty of the
Executive Committee to make an
appeal to Virginia farmers and urge
their active co-operatiiou. The effi?
ciency of this Assembly depends
upou the thorough organization of
each county in the State, and wc
therefore appeal to every farmer to
avail himself of the opportunity af
?????i-powerin rue tann."
Farmers of Virginia, do you know
that the agriculturists number 76
per, cent of the population of this
State; and yet their influence is not
felt in the legislation halls of the
Our numerical strength is such as
to insure success, if we act with mod?
eration, intelligence, zeal and una?
nimity. Now that the opportunity
is i ffered yon, will yon not avail
yourselves of iff Come to jour coun?
ty and district meetings, and send
proper delegates to represent you
in the Assembly in August, and by
this concert of action your law-mak?
ers will be obliged to respect your
We require wise legislation ou
our county roads, just laws faithfully
executed for our rapidly increasing
railroads* pioper laws as to fencing
immigration, diseases of stock, and
other matters which do not now re?
ceive the attention they Should from
The Farmers' Assembly proposes
to bring these matters before the
Legislature and see that they are
acted on. It is only in this way
that you can ever accomplish any?
thing. With this statement we
leave the matter in your hands, beg
ging your hearty co operation aud
bidding you "God speed" iu the no?

The Executive Committee of The
1!lty< land tu Tamilian;.
Ntyv YORK, July 5.?Tammany
Society celebrated yesterday by a
gathering at Tammany Hall. The
following letter from President
Cleveland was read:
??1 beg leave to-acknowledge the
: receipt of your invitation to join the
! Society of Tammany in its uiuety
[seventh celebration of the Fourth
of July, the birthday ot the repub
I lie. I regret that the pressure of
I official duties and engagements pre?
vent the acceptance of this kind in
vitation. Of the purposes sought
to be accomplished by the people in
their recent choice ol a chief magis?
trate, referred to in your note ot
invitation, I am seriously mindful.
In order tliat the hopes of the peo?
ple may be fully realized every mem
bcr of the party in power shoud
yield a cordial support to all efforts
on ihe part of the administration to
restore a pure, free and just govern
mcnt. The statement contained in
your note that the administrtion
should so discharge all its functions
as to merit not only the approba?
tion of the people, but at the same
lime ' insure a harmonious party
united in Jeffcrsonian democracy'
uieets my approval; although my
conception of the true purposes and
the mission of my party convinces
me that if the present administra?
tion merits the intelligent approval
of the people, this result of itself
certainly should "insure a harmoni?
ous party united in Jeffersoniau de?
mocracy." While the coming cele?
bration will revive and keep alive
the memory of patriotic devotion
and sacrilice for the sake of the free
! institutions, no occasion is more
'propitious for a renewal of our
pledges to a true ami progressive
democracy, so essent ial tu our coun?
try's safety and prosperity." '
No Compromise iu Virginia Bonds.
Richmond, Va., Jnly G.?Mr.
William L. Royall, the counsel for
the foreign holders of Virginia
bonds, arrived here today from Lon
don. After the decisions of the
United States Supreme Court in the
Virginia coupon cases Mr. Roynll
visited London to have a conference
with the leading bondholders of the
State there, and submittinga propo?
sition looking to a compromise. Mo
has but. little to say about the re?
sults of his mission further th in
that his clients would not entertain
for a moment, any proposition to
coin promise. They ieel confident
Mr. Royall says, of the strength of
their position and the equity and
justice of t heir claims, and have no
compromise to offer. Had any prof?
fer been made it. secinsqnitcccrfaiii
from t he pre.-cut temper of the Vir?
ginia people that neitherof the two
political parties in this State would
I have encouraged it.
Mr. Ro.\all sa's that the bond?
holders delate that any offer of com?
promise must come from the State
of Virginia and not from them.?
