He is also general yane -r and scrivener, us well as lejial adviser lor his fellow-islanders. Yesterday an iinfaithlul husband who brought a ptianye woman to his house, to the greit ??'?andal of the neighborhood, was brought in*fi?ie lmn upon complaint of the injured w it'. 1 did not wait to hear the terminal ion ol the cise, but 1 have no doubt that sub* -Imtiul justice was dune.

J la-re are four churches on the bland, which would seem to bo quite enough, con sidering (hat I he population is less than two thousand. The Methodist Protectants have two churches, the Baptists one, and the Methodists one. Il any self-constituted mis sionary should come to Baltimore, and, after depicting the prat spiritual destitution that obtains on Chincoteague, ask for aid to build k church, lie may safely be put down as a fraud. I regret to learn that the member-. ship of the churches is small in proportion; to the population. There was a great camp- j meeting on the Island in 1869, at which manv were converted. The Methodist Epis copal church grew out of this revival, the Kev. Vaughn Smith being the principal worker. There will be another camp-meet ing next week, and I should be glad it my engagements permitted me to attend. ASSATKAGUE. Yesterday, in company with three friends, 1 went over to Assateague. We crossed the iil\ iding inlet in a small row-boat. First we parsed through a very crooked and very shallow canal or channel, which wound its way through a labyrinth of salt marshes covered with coarse, grass, and theu we crossrd a swift, clear channel, and were landed on the Assateague shore. There was a pony ??penning" goiug on, but the iuci d?-nts did not diller from those witnessed the pieceding day at Chincoteague. The chief object of interest on Assateague is the tine ligiit-house, known to all eoasl w kh? navigators. It stands on a sand-bank twenlv-nine feet above the level of the sea, and the shall is 121 feet from the foundation the lantern, which places the light 150 et above the level ot the sea. Through the courtesv of the keeper we were permit d to ascend the iron stairway, and to seat ourselves on the little irou gallery that sur rounds the upper turret. Nothing could be finer than the view from this elevated look out. To the east is the blue ocean, that be ins with a while surt lineon the Assatcugue beach, mid melts into the horizon when the eye searches for some other boundary to its in Hit v expuise, Chincoteague and Assa teague lie at your feet, aud you can look down upon the root ot every cottage on both islands. A sand ridge winds longitu dinally through Chincoteague, which is for the most part covered, with .pine trees. ,ong, sharp [joints, covered with grass, which look like the aruw and legs of some marine monster, push themselves out from the shores of both islands, and if it were not for the* the race of wild ponies would soon become extinct. The grass which grows upon these marshes furnishes them their food iu winter. THE ISLAND GRAVEYARD. Un our way back, as we crossed the ridge on Chincoteague, we passed the cemetery in which the tir>t colonists were buried more than a century siuce by those who in their tucu followed them to this quiet resting place. It occupies the highest ground on the island. Frotn the earliest times the peo ple seem to have dreaded the encroachments of the sea, and this spot was selected as the one that would longest resist the action of the waves and the tide. The subsequent history of the island has shown that these fears were not found d on mere supersti tious fancies. In 1821 a tidal-wave swept over the island, drowned many of the ponies, aud changed the conformation of the shore. In 1800 another tidal-wave covered a portion of the islaud and swept off some of the ponies, but it was not so destructive as its predecessor. The first settlers no doubt anticipated such visitations as these when they carried their dead to the summit of Rattlesnake ridge for burial. This is a most extraordinary cemetery lor the reason that it has no incroorial-stoues. There Is not a nauie or a date or any other inscription that I could see. '? The silence of the grave" is no mere tigure ot speech when applied to these neglected mounds. Whatever of vir tue or genius or piety or heroism made these unconscious sleepers honored among men is no more remembered on the lace of the eaith; if they were beloved iu life, affec tion has forgotten to record even their names. Yet, after all, there is something sublime in this unbroken silence. Oblivion is better than falsehood. "The storied urn" too often tells of virtues which had no existence and sends a name down through the ages, as honorable which was base enough until carved on marble. GOOD-BYE TO CUlNCOTEAOl'E. I regret to leave these uncultured island ers so* soon. There are some original char acters among them with whom 1 should like lo become better acquainted. No person ever complains of the heat; the sunshine blisters the skin, but it does not iuflame the blood; the cool sea breezes are a perpetual jov, and the moonlight reflected from the water is almost enchautiug. Both Chinco teague and A>sateagur sounds are titled with the finest fish that caiu be found oil the At lantic coast 5 the salt-water trout, highly prized bv Baltimore epicures, and served up in our best saloons at thirty cents each, are so abuudant that they sell for ten cents a dozen, \ corpuleut "shccpsbead." that weighs live or six pounds, brings twenty-five cents. Yes terday I saw a rather sleepy-looking young man fishing from a boat which he had tied to one of the piles of an abandoued pier, ile used no rod, but merely dropped a baited hook, attached tu a short line, over the edge of his boat. Every five or six minutes the water would be violently stirred ; the young man would slowly draw up his liue, and the bright fccales of a 4*sheopshead'- would glit ter in the sun for an instant, and then the struggling fish would drop to the bottom of his boat with a heavy thud. 1 saw five of these noble fish hauled from the water within an hour. When they were strung together a man of moderate muscular development did not care to carry them very far. There is an excellent hotel here (the At lantic), which is well patronized. Not many tourists conic this way, but the laijre oyster trade brines dealers from fbdadelpiua aud New Yolk at all times in the year, and scarcely a week goes by that pony-buyers do not cross the sound. Two of our city artists, Mr. Charles 11. Sauerwein aud Mr. ueorge B. Way (son of A. J. Way J, are now sojourn ing here, and sketching such pieces of the sea and sky and laud as they think will be most admirable when hung up in their Baltimore -tuiMos. The younger of these gentlemen was the hero of the adventure with the un tamed pony, related in a former letter. Thk Lips of Bottles.?A correspondent of the Cincinnati Oasvttc lakes Herbert Spencer to task lor his recent observations in regard to Jack of thought about little things, especially with reference to the want ol adaptation ot the lips of bottles lor "drop ping" medicines. The critic says: If Mr. Spencer would serve a week in an apothecary's shop he might, if observant, find out several facts, as. that the drop is, or ouirht to be, obsolete as a measure, because it Ts no more definite than a " lump of chalk." Its size varies with the viscidity of the liquid, and its weight from ether to castor oil or molasses, and varies even more from the shape of the lip from which it drops. A drop from the point of a pen will be very different from one from the edge of a milk pan. Apain, he miu'ht lind that a vial which will give nice drops when half full will not do so when one-quarter full, and will "slob ber" fearfully when three-quarter*full. And the lip that will Jet ether fall and be clean will hold enough oil to afterward smear the whole bottle. The i?bape of vials, as of many other things, i< the result of centuries of practical experience, is the best possible average, and the trouble in using them is much more often in the user than In the maker. Glass blowers make vials as the ajiothecjrics want theui, and the apothecaries know (none bet* ter) what they want. The skilled worker, by a simple turn of the wrist, returns to the vial the drops which che unskilled allows to ruu down the side. .

Suspicious Action of a Negro Woman Conjuration and Superstition.?Yesterday forenoon a colored woman known# as Mary Ann Veuchir. who resides in Screatnersville, was seen to throw a bundle in the river from the bridge opposite Brown's island. The attention of the neighborhood was soon di rected to the event, and the cry of infanti cide instantlv raised by a hundred exeited voices; whereupon the woman was arrested by the police and conveyed to the Second station-house. * ,? i Deputy Coroner Dr. McPhail, being noti-1 fied bv Captain Disney, made an examina tion into the case, but finding no evidence to sustain the charge the accused was dis I missed. .... , i ' M'trv Ann Veuchir stated that her duugh? ter, Martha Stanard, aged eighteen, was se'iied with spasms ou Friday last,?aualTec tiou she has been subject to ot laie and if was suggested by some friend of the family that the girl was tricked, the attention at the same time being directed to certain nails driv en in the door-step in a peculiar and suspicious manner. She forthwith proceeded to remove tliem, when her hand i>y accident touched the centre one and became instantly para It zed. This convincing her of the truth ol thn suggestion, a *" conjure doctor ' wa> I consulted, who directed the nails to be placed iu a small keg, sprinkled, over with sjlt, pepper, copperas, flsh-salt/onions, etc.. and then the keg to be tilled With earth taken from beneath the step, the whole to be 1 wrapped in certain unmentionables pre viously worn by the afflicted girl, and tluoss n I into a running stream. The execution of the above led to the sus picion of infanticide add ciruted Mary Ann, several hours' imprisonment, but has not shaken her faith in her 44 conjure doctor. Narrow Escape krom a \\ aterx Gra\ k. Yesterday about half-past 0 o'clock A. 31. unite a commotion was created amongst the operatives at the Tredegar Works. A higii ly-rcjspected and useful employe'ol the estab lishment having, either from design or acci dent, gotten into the deep arms ol the James which encircles Brown's inland, was being rapidlv carried by the rushing waters to wards" the race of Haxah's mills, where he was discovered and the alarm raised by the female residents of the island. Mr. Miep berd, an islander, whose attention was at tracted, rushed to the spot, and by the aid of a boat which he was luckily able to pro cure, succeeded in rescuing the unfortunate iu a completely helpless condition, just as he was sinking for the third time. Personal.?Governor Walker having been chosen by the City Committee to preside over the Conservative meeting at the Theatre, will probably come down from the \\ lute bul pbur this evening. f Hon. J. Foote Johnston, of Bedford coun ty, was in the city yesterday. Among the arrivals at Fords Hotel jester day were Messrs. G. T. Herndon. Hunting ton; J. <i.

Baby-Carriages in M arrets.?Many ladies do their own marketing, and some of them want to know why baby-carriages are al lowed to pas? through or stand in tlfe mar kets during market hours. Everybody knows what a nuisance these carriages are on the business street-* of the city where people are always in a hurry,and have to dodge around the baby-carriages and impudent nurses, or even to step into the gutter to avoid being run over; for no nur.-e was e?er yet known to move aside one inch for anybody. Then how much more annoying must they be in the maikets during the hours when pur chasers flock therein crowds? The incon venience to people who go to market, particu larly to ladies, is really serious, and we hope there may be some remedy lor it. Hkikf I,oc.am.?The new freight depot of the Ric hmond and Petersburg railroad has been completed, and is found lo add greatly to the convenience of shippers.

Iiie Jobacco I hade.?While every other branch of business bos nourished and in creased in importance in proportion to the growth of the town, the tobacco busings is by lar more iuconsiderable than in the earlier history of the town. Manv years back there were several warehouses for the inspection ot tobacco, and many establishments en gaged in manufacturing and drv stemmin,r and the names ot Caskle. Harrison, Vadeu Miller, Gilmore, Gray, Fisher,and others were known everywhere. From some cause the trade decreased, and during the war but little was done. The large factory of Gil more & Co., Decatur street, was destroyed by lire in 186'4, and for several years thereafter the business almost entirely closed. Suc cessful efforts have, however, been made during the past few years to renew the busi nes-, aud at this time it is assuming some thing of its former importance. In m um facturing tobacco several gentlemen of well known business talent and ability are largely engaged, heavy shipments being made to foreign markets. In dry stemming two firms are doing a large busiuess, their sup plies being shipped chiefly to the British markets. This trade gives employment to a large number of hands, and the prospects are good for an iucrea.se in the business and the speedy resumption by Manchester of its former position as the third in importance among the great tobacco marts of the State. The Mancuestkk Diamond.?A rccent work on the subject of diamonds, said to be the best authority in use, speaks of the diamond found in this town in April, 1S55, by Mr. .Benjamin Moore as the largest American diamond well authenticated ever found, " weighing at that time 27-7 carots,and with a specific gravity of 3,503. Its general charac ter approached nearer the Brazilian than the Oriental stones." The general supposition has been that the gem was lost by some of Lafayette's men, at one time encami>ed on the spot of its tinding; but it is hardly pos sible that they had uncut diamonds. Since the di-covery of this gem various parties have spent much time in quest of others, but with rather indilfereut success, as this was doubtless the only one washed t.bis way. Mr. Moore, known as "Uncle Diamond,'' ost two gallant sons in the late war, aud lives in our midst as an humble but much respected citizen. Iiad he been properly advued in regard to its worth he might have been-a wealthy man. Brutal Assault.?A man named Edward u\ao, living on the suburbs of town and near Swansboro , while uuder the influence oI liquor,,committed a most brutal assault oil his wife I uesday. Dr. Monteiro rej>orfs her injuries as serious, the wound bavin* caused concussion of the brain. By an had not beep arrested at last accounts. Tue Condition of the Streets Fartlv from the incessant rain, and owing to other causes, the condition ol the streets was never worse than at. this time, walking ofl' of Hull street being attended with greit discomfort and inconvenience. When the weather open?, will the Street Committee try to mend the ways of our people, who now wade through the rain aud the mud? The Conservative Club.?Attention is called to the meeting at the Old Continental to-night, postponed from Tuesday ni^ht on account of the rain. A full attendance is expected, as the organization will be com pleted. Officers absent without good excuse will be considered as having resigned. What the people want is live men. Let all such who feel an interest iu the Lower Bowery and the Conservative cause altend to-night. An Interesting Debate.?The last meet ing of the Jefferson Literary Society, at the county court-house, was well attended de spite the rain, and the question '* Is the homestead law beneficial ?" was ably de bated. The club is bavintr accessions of oar Injst citizeus at each meeting.
