Desmond: SINGING OIR PRAISES. The Thousands Here on the Fourth Were Delighted. The many newspaper articles and the ?eataa of lettcrs received make Irving? ton ians prouci of the manner in which they "pulled ofT" the Fourth of July alfair. All the diatinguished citizens who came from a distance have written letters glowing with eulogy of our pretty section and the old Virginia hoapitality dispensed. Here is a aample of the many newapaper articles,one written by Commander Williams in the Mathews Journal: Comrades. the Fourth of July has come and gone, and with it came a Erand day for those members of the ane-Diggs Camp who ayailed them selves of the opportunity of going to Irvington on our good steamer Rappa hannock. We left Fitchetts about 7 a. m., reached our point of destination in due time, and found the waters about Carter'8 Creek covered with ves sels of all kinds?steamers, schooners, launches, sailboats and other craft, each bearing its precious burden of hu man souls. At the head of this num erous fleet sailed that staunch splendid ehip, the Commodore Maury, walking the waters like a thing of life, all under command of Admirai W. McDonald Lee, Commander-in-Chief of the Vir? ginia Navy. Admirai Lee is a grand man and splendid officer, of whom Vir ginians should be justly proud. We witnessed the boat races, rejoiced with the winners, and felt very sorry for those that came in last. After the races were over welanded at Irvington and marched along with the great crowd to the Commissary Department, where we found the fair ladies of the grand old town of Lancaster in full command. God bless our women. As we partook of all good things that land, water and the chicken coop could pro duce, I went back over more than forty years of the dead past, and thought of those warlike days that tried the flesh and bones of men. of an empty com? missary. and how our very souls would rejoice over a meal of parched corn, white oak acorns or other dainties. Those days have passed and gone, and we are going, too, to join our comrades. On fame'ft eternal campinjr ground, Where irlory guards with solemp rouud, Tbe bivouc ot our dead While satisfying the inner and outer man I thought of the old boys we left behind, especially of Comrade H., and the Veteran, as they sat beneath the shade of the trees and thought of the good time they had missed. The good time was all pleasure, and of no cost to our gallant veterans, many of whom were present. We extend our heart felt thanks to the good people of Lan caster, and especially to Aomiral Lee, for their kindness to the boys whowore the Grey. PROPAGATING FOXES. Jno. E. Blakemore, of Millenbeck, this county, had aent him by a New York aportsman, Dr. W. S. Kilmer, a kennel of tame red foxes. Mr. Blake? more has turned them out in batches of eight at a time. Some have so far run the gauntlet. but others have fal len under the neighbors' guna while raiding henroosts. Tidewater is not the home of the red, and how his advent will be wel comed is probably illustrated by the reception of neighbors about Millen? beck. SOME MARRIAGES. Mias Julia S.
