A true type of the Virginia gentleman can be found in him. Possessed of that genial disposition and gentlemanly bearing that win so many admirers. Hope be will visit our town oftener in the futurp. Bark hauling is going on at a rapid rate by Messrs. Austin & Ellison, Hall & Sweeney and others. The Messrs. Deford & Co. have not commenced hauling yet, but w ll by September 1st. Their peeling this year is estimated at from 1200 to 1500 cords. Lyudhurst is the point from which it is being shipped. Most of it goes to the Luray tannery. Politics at this place are very quiet at present. Hope some good speakers wil give us a good address or so. We are needing rain very badly again. The corner loafers mentioned by E. C. I., not only have the sun to contend witli but he also has that fearful gnat to subdue and he can be seen early in the morning and late in the evening keeping time to the music of that monster by slapping right and left at them, and moreover we mean to flog “'E. C, I.” if lie does not ap pear oftener. lie has been toating bark heretofore and now he means to make a change by putting a wagon on the road. We wish him the greatest success. May he ever live long and happy. If I had the brains he has, I would not toat hark or haul it either, as lie can talk politics so fluently, and with his ready wit and good sound judgment, he would make au excel lent campaign speaker. This is my first attempt at anything of this kind, and I hope Messrs. Editors that you am} the reading public will look over all grammatical errors. Fearing I might tire you, I vanish. Gewiiilerkins. Railrrad Matters. The scheme for the consolidation of the Chesapeake aud Ohio and the Richmond and Alleghany railroad is now a fixed fact, as it is stated. Operations under the ar rangement are to commence this fall. The consolidation will take the Richmond and Alieghany out of the courts, and furnish the Chesapeake aud Ohio a double track from Clifton Forge to Richmond. The plan is for the Richmond and Alleghany to issue §5,000.000 of new bonds, upon which the Chesapeake and Ohio is to guarantee interest at the rate of 21 or 3 per cent.— This wili give the heavy freights on the Chesapeake apd Ohio, such as coal and lumber, a better grade to Richmond and save in wear and tear, and also in trans portation expenses. The proposition to transfer the remain ing @105,000 in Rockbridge bonds from the Valley Railroad to the Vifgiuia Western is being considered by the Board of Super visors of Rockbridge. If it is done the Virginia WeSteru will complete the road to Salem or Roanoke, or construct au inde pendent line to strike the Southwest by Gala Water and continue on through the , Southwest tier of counties, opening up a rich and valuable unoccupied section of couutry. It is encouraging to notice these schemes to give railroad facilities to the Valley. There is no more inviting field for profita ble railroad operations, or where more ma terial wealth is awaiting development.. The arrangement about the Virginia Western would benefit Lexington and Rockbridge county loan incalculable de gree and give life and animation to that whole region of country. Tariff on Iron Ore, We have teen informed that it is indus triously circulated through portions of the 10th district, and especially in the mineral district of Augusta and ltoekbridge couu > ties,that Hon. ,1. Randolph Tucker was in strumental, while in Congress, in having the tariff on iron ore increased from 50 tc 75 cents. This is a mistake. Mr. Tucker ' not only did not suggest the increase, but was opposed to it. The increase was due to Gen. Malione when in the Senate. He was a member of the Conference Com mittee on the tariff hill of 1883, aud in , that capacity offered an amendment to , the ore schedule to increase the tariff on 1 foreign iron ore to Sf?.00 per ton. This . proposition was not accepted, aud after , considerable contention and no little plain s talk, a compromise was finally effected on i 75 cents—an increase of 50 per cent. We ’ do not suppose Mr. Tucker will thank any ? one for intimating even, much less locat J ing the responsibility upon him, of mov ' ing an increase of the tariff rates on iron j ore or anything else. He is one of the free s traders who has never been afraid oi ashamed to say that he believes in the r policy and theory of free trade, aud nevei 3 before has been accused of proposing te ' increase import duties on anything. Electric Bitters. y This remedy is becoming so well known and so popular as to need no special men tion. All who have used Electric Bitters sing the same song of praise.—A purei medicine does not exist and it is guarau teed to do all that is claimed. Electric Bitters will cure all diseases of the Live! and Kidneys, will remove Pimples, Boils Salt Rheum and other affections causer by impure blood —Will drive malaria fron the system and prevent as well as cure al Malarial fevers.—For cure of Headache Constipation and indigestion try Elect rii Bitters—Entire satisfaction guaranteed or money refunded.—Price 50 cts. and 8 per bottle at Hughes & Robinson’s dm store.

[For the Virginian.] Mr. Editor:—There is more history i these seventeen years, five months an five days than in any fifty from the land ing at Jamestown to this moment. On the 27th of November next fort years ago, a stage, driven by old Jaco Dull, rolled out in front of the Yirgiui Hotel for Scotsville, with thirteen mem hers of the Legislature of Virginia. Wm Kiuney, Esq., senator ; Hugh W. Sheffe. and J. Marshall McCue : Jas. B. Dormai and James G. Paxton, Rockbridge: Hiran Martz and Wm. B. Yancey, of Rocking ham; Phillip Pittman, of Shenandoah Benjamin Hiner, of Pendleton ; Join Byrd, of Bath ; Douglas B. Layne, of A1 legbany : Sam Price, of Greenbrier, am James M. Laidley, of Kanawha. Thi canal was the medium of reaching Rich inond. Asa Whitoey, from New England, liac for years gone from one State capital tc another urging Legislatures to instrucl their servants at Washington to charter a Transcontinental railraad. Having visitec Albany and Harrisburg he was found at iiichmond. The first international and anti-international improvement fight, proper, that ever occurred in a Virginia Is gislature, founded on a series of five resolutions endorsing his views—Col. Chas. Perrin, of Nelson, chairman of the committee—came off, and after a fight of three weeks, the Antis succeeded by two votes, 02, 64. Tl)9 Code was revised at Warren ton Springs in ’49, and a convention called to .change Uie constitution. That was ef fected in the session of ’JO ’60. Joe Johnson, of Clarksburg, nominated in this town, was elected Governor under the new. The corner stone of the Washington Monument was laid 22d Feb. ’52, Presi dent Z. Taylor representing the Federal Government, and the unveiling occurred 22d Feo. 1858, Gen. Scott representing the General Government. John Brown’s raid, the introduction to the Civil revolution, took place on Sabbath night, the 16th October, 1859. The con vention that decided to carry Virginia out of the Union sat in the winter of ’GO-’61. Four years of b.lootfy war in which Vir ginia was the battlefield, was closed at Appomattox, and the bottom fell out of Hichmond on the 5th day of April, 1S65 : the termination of the seventeen years, five months and live days. Then, too, sin gular as it may appear, Judge If. W. Shef fey and Col. J. Marshall McCue are again found occupying the same positions, "the former ju thp Speaker’s chair, with Hon. A. Boliyer Christian in the Senate. The territory of Virginia, by an outrage of the constitution, is disrupted, and slavery abolished, Where will the careful historian, in any period three times the length of the above, liud so many of the most important inci dents, so seriously affecting Virginia his tory, as those enumerated V Echo an swers where. ’f is a singular fact that under the con stitution of ’29-’30, 19 counties entitled to two, and Loudoun three, representatives, Augusta has, for six years, been the only one of the 20, in which both ot the repre sentatives survive.

A ton* Lost Sister Revealed by the Antics «!' a Rig Wave. 1 Atlantic City letter in Philadelphia Press. * A young creature calling herself Bobo el-Bulo opened a fortune teller’s booth on the Boardwalk a few days ago. She gave ’’ it out that she was an Egyptian princess } She dressed in a fantastic costume com * posed piincipally of a Persian shawl, a ■ gilt belt studded with colored glass stones * and a pair of baggy Nile-green silk trous ' ers cut short at the knees, where they 1 were fastened around her shapely legs by 1 garters of brown silk with gold clasps. ■ Her complexion was as dark as a light i negroe’s, but her features were the purest 1 Circassian. Her teeth were pearly white ■ and her eyes entraucingly luminous. Her booth speedily proved a centre of 1 attraction for old and young. .She told the most astonishing fortunes in rhyme, apparently composing the verses as she spoke. Among the numerous patrons of her booth was Frederick Lawrence Sellers, a young man living in Kansas City. Bobo el-Bulo treated all her male patrons alike, old and young. She greeted them with cold indifference, but told their fortunes in a frank, straightforward yet maidenly manner that was not without attraction. To Sellers, however, who visited her five or six times on different pretences, she evinced a suppressed tenderness rather calculated to turn the young fellows’s head. Indeed their friendship ripened so fast that he finally prevailed upon the al leged Egyptian princess to go bathing with him yesterday afternoon. The girl refused to enter the surf deep enough to get her head wet. Sellers noticed that she wore gloves with long arms and the only part of her flesh visible was her neck and face. While they were disporting in the shallow surf, a wave, larger than the others, swept Bobo el-Bulo from her feet. She fell with a little scream, the wave dashed over her head and shoulders, she arose panting and bewildered, the OQlor-matter washed front her face and her skin was as fair and white as any lady’s in the land. With a cry of delight, right there on the beach, before the eyes of huudreds of spectators, Sellers threw his arms around her aud kissed her again and agaiu. “Carrie Sel lers,” he shouted, “Carrie Sellers, I’ve found you at last.” Everybody made a rush for the young couple, and soon the romantic explanation which they made spread from one end of the hoard walk to the other. Bobo-ei-Bulo, the Egyptian ortune teller, was none other than Carrie Sellers, sister of Frederick Lawrence Sel lers, the young Kansas City visitor. With out being an absolutely bad girl she had always shown a desire to lead a life free from the ordinary trammels of conven tional society. This disposition grew so marked that two years ago. when she was eighteen years of age, a dispute with her parents terminated in her sudden disap pearance from home. Her family lost all trace of her. Six months ago her father, a wealthy dealer in real estate, died, leav ing the bulk of his fortune to his son Frederick, with the proviso in his will that if the missing daughter could be found she was to receive §10,000, The girl told her brother, whom she had at once recognised when he visited her in her booth, that after leaving home she had learned a system of fortune telling from a woman in New York and decided upon making a living that way. Her life had been extremely bitter in many ways, but she had been too proud to return home, not knowing of her father’s death. She could not And courage, however, to shun her brother, thus eventually leading to the exposure and reunion. Bobo-el-Bulo’s booth on the Boardwalk is closed to-day. No Egyptian princess sits therein to tell of the past and future. But pretty Carrie Sellers and her delighted brother took the early morning train for their distant western home.
