Two topics at present seem to be agi?
tating I ho public mind in this locality,
First, the mails from Accomac C. II..

changed to three times a week. Tins
clmugc Iras caused very much dissatis?
faction. The people getting mail, at this
office ami Mctompkin cannot see why
they should be treated in this way, in
view of the fact Hut they occupy one of
Hie most prosperous parts of the county.
Their interest must suffer under the
present mail arrangement. I am happy
to say however, that I think there is a
good prospect of the daily mail being
restored to us.

sentiment, have almost determined
