Lettern From the People.
Mr, Editor.?The article on county
roads iu your issue of the 21st, is wor?
thy of the consideiation of all citizens,
and if you will continue to use your pa?
per for such good purposes, it will be re?
garded by the people with great favor,
though it has already a very large circu?
lation, and is justly appreciated.
No one can give this subject of county
roads a thought or make any calculation
on them, but are at once convinced of
the benefits to all, in economy, and in
greater facilities for the hauling and
driving, necessary to our business and
Horses, will be enabled to do much
moi e work than at present is required of
them, and easier; vehicles will lastlong
er, and more hauling can bedone/it less
expense; the savings in these items will
be much more than the cost of main?
taining good roads.
The only thing required to have this
work done at once, is the effort of our of?
ficials, either the county court or the
Board of Supeivisors, both have author?
ity within their reach,to inaugurate and
bestow a lasting benefit upon the people.
There is no good reason why it should
be put off five or ten years?it has got to
come and the quicker the better?some
of us may die and never see any improve?
ment, and we want it during our life
times?not after we are dead. To ac?
complish the lest results, the roads
should be let to contract, and jhe con?
tractors held to the mark of good roads
in every respect?smooth and dry?for
that is all there is in making and keep?
ing good roads.
The old system is a failure from top
to bottom, and it is-fjseless to look to
that source for any good.
The Board of Superyisors, you sa}-.
meet early in December, in the new
couri-hiiuse. that they have provided for
the lawyers and court officials, (they are
the ones that use this building con?
stantly and regularly, a few of the peo?
ple only, occasionally at each term of the
court;) let them now give us something
new "for the people, va new and efficient
system of makinj and maintaining the
county loads. Is there any good reason
why such beneficial work cannot bedonc
at once? "None!" A snivelling grand
daddy excuse may be giveu, that the
goixl eld way was good enough for the'
past, and outfit to do for the present
generation, or a lack, cither of will or
courage may prevent it, nothing else.
The roads if let to contract at once,
can be drained, the water will run off as
well at this season of the year as at any
other; and if kept dry, a big stride for?
ward will have been made.
Some persons may object to the ex?
pense of contracting for the roads, the
answer is, "we spend one dollar on the
road to save five or ten in wear, tear,
inconvenience and annoyance to men,
horses and vehicles"?men, horses and
vehicles cost money to hire, buy and to
maintain-everybody knows it, then why
should we be wasteful and exttavagent
with them. Is it not economy to repair
the roads? Is it not sensible to spend
one dollar to save five?
Not one dollar will be taken from the
county,it will be spent in our midst.and
everyone,man or woman,white or black,
rich or poor can have the benefit, and
use it daily for their purposes; how
much greater good will this be to all,
than the court-house? The roads ought
to have come first on the list of improve?
ments, but we will be satisfied and say
nothing moie about it if we can have
them now. Pro Bono Publico

A Tonjjcr*? ProteNt.
Mr: Editor?In your last issue you
publish from the Baltimore Sun an arti?
cle headed "Oyster beds of Virginia."
The writer evidently does not know the
facts. Any man who will go to the oys?
ter rocks in Pocomoke sound any fair
day will find hundreds of tongers at
work?and it is in fact the principal
place for tongers of the Eastern Shore,
and the sole means of support of many
hundreds of people. All the oyster rock*
in Pocomoke sound from aline from the J
south end of big Watts' island to the |
mouth of Chesconnessix creek and in?
cluding the mouth of Pocomoke and
Tangier rocks are longing rocks rang?
ing in depth from 10 to 24 feet, and are
scarce of oysters. Yet the dredgers
hcwl for them. The lines have been
laid down by Lieut. Bates and Capt.
George D. Wise, commencing at Sandy
Bar on the east, and little Watts' island
on the west, with an entrance by a chan?
nel 34 miles wide and 9 fathoms of wa?
ter. The General Assembly in 1SS3 set?
tled the point, giving the best rocks to J
the dredgers, until nowtonglnggrounds]
are barely sutlicient to make mere biead.
It has almost been impossible to keep I
the dredgers off the tonging grounds.?
Ask Capt. Brown to tell you what work j
he had when in command of the "Tan?
gier" to preserve these grounds- They
actually dredge when a vessel drawing
7 feet of water will ground at low tide?
and the rocks be barciT They dredge at
night and in the absence of the inspec?
tor, and the rights of tongers are entire?
ly disregarded. Give a dredger an i ich
and he will take ten miles. Tnev have
already eaten a 11 the pie in the oven and
now howl for the scraps in the plate.?
Something must be done for the pro?
tection of thetonger. and we call on you
to aid us. Our Legislators must be up
and doing, or there will be squalls. We
are gnawing the bone now, but we won't
be driven to it only. Tonger.

Mr. Editor?The people of Acco?
mac met with a severe loss at our late
county fair, by means few know. The
Board on the Chesapeake and its tribu?
taries built as you are aware an ocean
steamer for shoal water navigation. The
Governor and his speciat chum of the
Board, Mr. Barksdale. went to Norfolk
and boarded thisJLeviatban of the deep
and essayed with all the munitions to
cheer the inner man to reach this county
Off Tangier she "let gokillick," and
waited for a pilot to enter Pungoteagne
creek, no pilot came, and the ship feared
the attempt so wo lost a glimpse at Ma
hone's Gsveronr and his chum.
Dec. 3rd, 1885.
The Auditor's warrant for $9,79^.45,
the amount due the county of Accomac |
from the Giandstnff Act, has been re?
ceived and placed into the hands of the
county treasurer, preparatory to the
payment of teachers. This warrant is
the largest yft received, and has been
sent nearly a month sooner than usual;
I facts highly creditable to the Auditors,
showing that the school finances are in
! efiicient and friendly hands. The above
amount is apportioned among the dis?
tricts according to the new census, at
the rate of $1.05} per school population.
The State superintendent ap] ortioned
according to the old census at the rate of
Si 126-100 per capita. The school pop?
ulation of Accomac by the new census
is 9.2S5. The distribution is as follows:
This at the rate of 103$, gives to each
district as follows, less 2 per cent.?
Pungoteagne, Lee and Atlantic dis?
tricts show an increase of school popu?
lation over the last census, while Me?
tompkin and Islands show a decrease.
This explains why these two latter dis?
tricts receive less from the GrandstafT
Act this year than last. Teachers will
now be paid promptly as fast as salaries
fall due. Jas. C. Weaver

A < hild in Peril.
Mr. T. LNortham, of the Eastern
Shore Steamboat Company, reports the
nairow escape of a small child from
being carried off by an eagle. Wm.
Foster, who at one time worked on the
steamer Eastern Shore, but is now a
farmer, living near Taylor's whirf, at
the head of Hungar's Creek, Nort tamp?

child, which is about a year old.?
About four o'clock Thursday afternoon
Mrs. Foster, the mother, wis'iing to
get some wood from the w.j<xl-yard,left
the child in the yard. The eagle came
swooping down, and would have caught
the child had not Captain Kichardson. a
resident of the place, who happened to
be near with a gun, shot the bird. The
shot disabled the eagle by breaking its
left wing. It was caught by four men
of the steamer Eastern Shore, and taken
onboard, put in a chicken coop and
brought to Baltimore. The eagle meas?
