Norfolk now, moro than at any other period iu her history, wants the utmost aotivity in her business circles and upon the part of her active busiucss mou. We must be up and acting with moro energy and iutclligeooe of purpose than ever before. Norfolk's trade area is an extensive one?yearly iuereastug ?aud Norfolk should have business relations with every sectiou of it. Direotly tributary to us, iu tho easu-ru counties of Virginia and North Carolina, is a population of l.OOO.OQUj people, that naturally make N rfolk their market. Yet an immense nuiuuut of this trado passes by our d.ors, to Baltimore, Philadelphia aud New York. 'This trade should bo stopped right here, and can be, with proper organiza? tion.

I'ATkuKIZk iKi.m: FOLKS. j The Virginian is gratified that its advice tu our people to patronize home folks is cordially appreciated by our merchants aud storekeepers aud it has been in receipt of letters expressing thanks for its etVorls iu this mailer, so closely idontitied with the building up and prosperity c:f our oity. In its remarks some days ago on thn aubjoct it asserted that it was estimated that from $300,000 to S800.000 was sent out of Norfolk in a year for purchases made by orders on the storekeepers of Baltimore, Philadelphia and Now York. It has heard that the esti? mate coald bj placed at $1,000,000 nud that it would be nearer the mark, Just think of now this ex? penditure of money would add to tiio prosperity of our storekeepers nud as u cooeequence to the city. Ouo ;ot the letters received in commendation sajs: "Accept hearty thanks for your editorial relating to 'Patronizing Home.' It is a manly exprestiou of a positive and too painful truth. It should have its ef? fect on those who never make an ?il'ort to spend a dollar at home? but, who, generally earning their income from among uslalwnys spend what they ui e compelled t o spend away from home. In Iko jmm < of Greater Norfolk, keep upyo.^r good work iu tins respect." Another writes: "Your editorial headed ?Patronize Home Folks,' is timely aud touches a Bubjeot of deep inter? est to our tuorcbauts." TriE Virginias has time and aguiu dlluded to this matter. It is ouo that i;? ol deepest interest to all. Every oeut t! at can bo spent in Nor? folk should bo circulated hero. It will help very much in sustuiuing all branches of trade, in giving employ? ment to many more of our people. The hnn dreds of thotisauds of dol? lars that aro sent away from our oity each year would ho worth more than double, oye tripple, that sum if spout aud circulated iu our midst. Let thereforo, all, who wish to see our oity prosper and its mer rhints and storekeepers succeed, resolve to patrouize tue home folks. If you have furniture, or dry goods, or notions, or millinery, or cutlery, or erockery ware, or carpets, &o., &a, Ac, to buy, lot your purchases bo mado at homo. Stick together. Differ ub you may in politics, reli? gion, or iu uuythiug else, stand as a unit for Norfolk. In her behalf, looking to her growth aud develop meat, all differences should disap? pear. The supremacy of our oity, its advancement aud progress should always bo uppermost iu our minds, "Patrouize homo folks." I ON THE PENINSULA. A Brief Budget of Interesting News and Personals.

Such advertising is worth millions of dollars to Norfolk, und that edition should be put into every community of the country, that tho advantages ol Norfolk niigbt become known everywhere.

It was a great big showing, which ought to be mnoh bigger, however, as thera is a widespread belief iu the great advantages of Norfolk as a seaport town. The Virginian ih nlso advocating the onion ol tho several cities of thut vicinity to constitute tho Greater Norfolk, winch is a move meut in uncord with the spirit of tho times.
