Mr. Editor :—Since bidding adieu to old "NewtoWn" my career has been rather oheckered; but though sur rounded by new faces and scenes, my thoughts will often revert to the mem ories that cluster around the spot in which my boyhood days were spent. And though its name is changed from "Newtown" to "Stephens City," to me it will ever*be the old Newtown of my youthful days. I have access to the Star through the kindness of my friend Mr. Jim Leathers, who was for merly a resident of your town, and well known to many readers of your lising paper. I take a deep mm m the Star, and have often plated writing an article for iU s, but through neglect have al liled to do so. I had the pleas jeeing the first copy of the Star I, and would have subscribed to larly since its first issue, but have led such a wandering life 1 to got the paper regularly.— I locate permanently I will re y subscription. So, Mr. Editor; briefly describe some of the I have visited since leaving Ste- City. Pardon the digression, ist here I desire to tender the my warmest congratulations, mite with his other lriends in w shing him a happy and prosperous voyage upon the matrimonial sea. I will first give you a brief outline of my trip, then describe some of the towns through which I passed on my way hither. After a tearful (?) fare well to my old friends of Stephens City, my first stopping place was Mar tinhurg, where I resided a couple of months. The last mentioned town is the county seat of Berkeley, has a mised population of 7,000, and is sit- Kon the Winchester turnpike, about y miles distant from Stepheni and twenty-two from Winchester, ai tinsburg is emphatically a railroad town, and owes its chief importance to being the terminus of the Cumber land Valley Railroad and the oentre of the Baltimore & Ohio. I have been informed by a citizen of the town that there are between five and six hund red men and boys in the employ of the Baltimore & Ohio Railrad at Mar tinsburg. The machine shops alone afford employment to three hundred men and boys, Amoug the businesa facilities of Martinsburg are: Three large flouring mills, and a very capa cious whiskey distillery which turns out hundreds of barrels of rum daily. An aged ci'izen of the town informed me that Martinsburg came within one vote of being the capital of West Vir giuia. Wheeling procured the vote necessary to give her a majority of one, by bribery. At the southwestern corner of the town there is a negro settlement called Africa. The pro ductions of Africa are negro children and goats. The peculiar organization of Africa is the " hook and ladder company." The ladder is used to climb the trees when the darkey hooks the chickens. Martinsburg contains many churches. The Catholi6s are the most numerous scot —numbering about fifteen hundred. The Northern Methodists and Presbyterians are also very strong. In the town there are four publio sohool buildings, each be ing graded and containing several apartments. Every sohool has a male principal, with male and female as sistants. In another letter I will de scribe other towns I have lately vis • ited. Amicus. _■..»»»- Fawcett's Gap For the Star.] The reoent rains are bringing the corn up nicely. Business is in a flourishing condition around the gap. Dusters and sunshades are making their appearance. Our postmaster, Mr. Edwards, is yet very much indisposed. Fawcett & Brothers have removed their saw-mill to the Opequon, above Miss Sallie Afflick has been visiting , her sister living near>the Gap. Misses Laura Funkhouser and Emma Cunningham have returned from vis iting their relatives in Hagerstown, ; Maryland. Wm. Richard and family, of White ! Post, paid his father a visit last week Joseph Brumbach and family, of i Woodstock, are visiting his mother. Miss Nora Prefid has returned from | Kernstown. Mrs. Sarah Funkhouser has gone to ! Luray to visit her parents. . The Sabbath School at St. Paul will !be organized on Sunday morning. Miss Ida Keller, of Meadow Mills, ; has been visiting Mrs. Wesley Funk houser. F.A.A.
