How to feed it will be the great difficulty, for a leading British agriculturist said in a recent speech: "It appears to me, and it has been observed by many of our leading men, that a steady deterioration is going on in the producing powers of this island." CHEAP WIVES. The Old Style of Courting in Virginia. In "Holmes' American Annals" we find the following curious information, of the way wives were procured in Vir gnia, 258 to 260 years ago: "In 1618 v. Argall, of Virginia, ordered that tobacco should be a legal tender at three shillings per pound, and in refer ring to the passage from Europe, he says: 'The enterprising colonists being then destitute of families, 8ir Edward Sandys, the treasurer, proposed to the Virginia company to send over a freight of young women to become wives for the planters. The proposition was ap plauded, and ninety girls, young and incorrupt, were sent over in the ship which arrived this year, 1620, and the year following sixty more, and well recommended to the company for their virtues, education and demeanor. The price of a wife at first was 100 pounds of tobacco, but as the number became scarce the price was increased .to 150 pounds, the value of which in money was three shillings per pund. This debt for wives, it was or dpred, should have the precedence of all other debts, and be first recoverable. The Beri4Mr. Wains, a Virginia writer, intm `'that it would have done a uns's martt good to see the gallant young Vi tlans hastening to the water slide wi ver a ship arrived from Lon don, e i carrying a bundle of the best tobacco under his arm, and each taking back with him a virtuous young wife."' A New Hampshire paper relates that at Newton, in that State, a mad dog, ofter having been wounded, took refuge ins barn, where some of the hay became soaked with his blood. The hay was led to a horse, which went mad. I SOUTRNW NEWS. Tramps are becoming a nuisance in Claiborne parish. Big Bend, Avoyelles parish has or ganized a temperance association.

Walker, D.D.l.,1S Delord street, A CUe"IRWK ATE TO@PUD@. An Incildet of the War Without a Par. ailel. [Letter to Ricbmond Whig.] * * * But of all the boats in all the tide of time, and of all the daring deeds of mankind in the history of wars, that of Lieutenant Dixon, Twenty-first Ala bama Volunteers, in the submarine tor pedo boat in the Charleston harbor, in 1864, stands unparalleled. This boat operated under water. She could take the bearing of her enemy more than a mile away, then Settle down under the surface of the water, head for the hostile ship and strike her at airy depth below the water line. She requir ed a crew of nine men, all told-a cap tain, or pilot, and eight men to propel her. She was built in Mobile by Hundley & McClintock, who took her by rail to Beauregard at Charleston. He called for volunteers from the fleet to man her and use her against the Ironsides. Lieut. Payne, Confederate navy (a Virginian), and eight seamen volunteered to take her out. She was made ready one even ing, and lying alongside a steamer, the crew were all at their posts inside the boat. Payne was standing in the round hatchway, just about to stoop down into his place and fasten the hatch down when the wave of a passing steamboat swept over and into her, sinking her in stantly. Payne caught by the guards of the steamer and sprang out; the other eight men went down with the boat and perished. In a few days she was raised and again made ready. Payne again volun teered, and eight sailors with him. This time they are lying by the wharf at Fort Sumter Payne standing as before in the hatdi to give his final orders when the boat careened, filled and sunk. Payne and two men sprang out the other six men went down in her and perished. In a few days she was again raised, and Hundley and crew took her into Stone river, where she dived and swam on the water and under it. showing all her powers until presently she dived and carried her hapless owner and crew with her to the bottom. When they were found a week after her nozzle was down deep into the mud of the bot tom, and the boat was inclining forty five degrees to the surface. Her ballast had shifted and and her crew were unable to relieve her, and they all perished. EAgain she was made ready for action, and though they had seen the fate of the three brews, a fourth, led by Lieut. Dixon, of the Twenty-first Alabama In fantry, volunteered to take her out and attack the Housatonic a new corvette, which had just arrived on the station, and was lying outside a few miles off Charleston Harbor. Brave Dixon steered his boat with the certainty of fate, struck the Housatonic fairly, and blew her whole stern off. The ship sunk in two minutes and a half, and the torpedo boat. disappeared forever. Six years afterward men in submarine armor went down to the wreck of the Housatonic, and they re porrthe Torpedian lying on the bottom, 100 feet from where her great victim lies. Undoubtedly, the concussion pro duced by the explosion of the torpedo destroyed instantly the lives of Dixon and his crew. Paris has just had a sensation which repeats the story of the corpse told in the "Memoires de Vidocq," and put upon the stage by Victorien Sardou in his "Maason Neuve." A young man, Alexis de P,, was maintaining improper relations with a married woman. Dur ing one of their clandestine meetings the young woman swooned; the lover was unable to bring her to and hurried for a doctor, who found that she had died of heart disease. The commis saire of police happened along imme diately, told the lover that he must be present at the inquest, and ordered the body to be taken home. Thereupon M. Alexis de P. fled from Paris. To ST.
