Allow mo space for an explanation of
an omission to announce the following
article on our premium list which should
have been read out from the stand on
the last day of the Fair, but the secre?
tary failed to get them on hisbook, viz:
1st premium, very pretty pillow shams
by Miss Dennis of Temperanceville,
a loaf of very nice corn bread by Mrs.
John E. Bradford. Also, I wish to add
that of the great display of artistic and
skillful work in the ladies department,
many persons were heard to speak in
praise and admiration of the pen draw.
ings of Mr. Lee Kellam which contribu?
ted largely to the picture department.
The lovely table of Mrs. Solomon Bird
attracted special notice and admiration:
Last but not least, I must mention that
beautiful glass case of wax flowers, made
and contributed by Misses Inez and Car?
rie Brodwater of Temperanceville, ex?
hibiting such a degree of artistic ingen?
uity and skill that it seemed especially
to attract the public gaze. Many
were tbe expressions of regret that
General Fitz Lee failed to bo with
us. Many thanks to tbe public general?
ly, but especially to Temperanceyille for
contributions. T. T. Wescott.

To tno Jlorclmnts of Accomac and
I have been somewhat delayed in vis?
iting the trade in Accomac aud North?
ampton this fall because of a large trade
in the south west and south side section
of Va. However, I am on my way aud
will reach the shore by the bth of Sept.
and push through as fast as possible.?
It is altogether unnecessary for me to
say one word in commendation of Sny
der, Harris, Bassett & Co., for their
reputation for a complete stock inmens^
youth's, boys, and childrens clothing,
aud for fair dealing and for low prices
for good goods is already established. We
manufacture all our goods, they are
made up in the latest and best of styles,
no shoddy or inferior work allowed in
our factory. Every merchant knows
how mush easier it is to sell good goods
well made up than it is too sell shoddy
stuff badly marie up. 1 only ask of the
trade of the two counties, be pre?
pared to look at my line of samples and
examine and compare my prices before
buying for I have special and rare in?
ducements to offer.

Important to Farmers.
Mr. Wm. T.IGarrett of Northampton,
brother of our fellow-townsman, George
W. Garrctt, had on exhibition last Mon?
day, (court day,) a potato digger which
he has recently had patented. He has
worked the plow very successfully for
several of our farmers, who speak of it
in the highest term. After working i,t
for Judge Gunter, he was so much
pleased that he bought a plow im?
mediately, and has it now in successful
operation. Mr. Duff Savage also pur?
chased a plow after seeing its practical
workings. The plow throws the pota?
toes to the top of the ground where they
can be easily assorted and does not, as
some people think, turns up the sub?
soil and thus injure the laud fur future
planting. Such enterprise as Mr. Gar
rett possesses deserves recognition, and
we believe it would be to the advantage
of our farmers to patronize him.

Ocean City, Md.
Will continue under our management
during the coming season, and the
House is now open for the reception of
guests. Ocean City is so well and fa?
vorably known as a Seaside Resort, that
we deem it unnecessary to say anything
of its location and advantages, having
been visited in the past ten years by
thousands of health and pleasure seek?
ers annually, .ill of whom are loud in its
praises. From this immense throng
THE SEASIDE HOTEL
lias received a liberal share of patronage.
Notwithstanding the well-.^nownfact of
the Atlantic seacoast resorts being poor?
ly patronized last summer. TH E SEA?
SIDE was comfortably rilled during the
season, and we have yet to hear of a sin?
gle complaint of want of attention, poor
fare or bad accommodations; We hope
to renew the acquintance of last year's
patrons, and welcome many new guests
this season, and will use our test en?
deavors to make it pleasant for all.
