Prosperous county like Accomac would balk at issuing two or three Hundred thousand dollars Worth of Bonds for a like purpose if the question were submitted to the the people. Our suggestion to the supervisors of acco Mack is to act upon the advice of the Enterprise and to act promptly. If they do we Are confident the will have no reason to regret their action nor any cause to be disappointed at the the supervisors of Accomac at their meeting on monday discussed the mat ter and one of their number approved the views of the Enterprise but no action was taken. The Light will Dawn upon them though at a Day not very Remote it is to be hoped that we Are living in an age of Progress and that they must get out of the old ruts and take a broader View of the things pertaining to the present Day. The Long standing controversy be j tween the states of Virginia and West va., As to the part due by the latter of the $33,000,000 debt of Virginia which existed when the new state was formed has at last after Many years been passed upon by the supreme court of the United states and West Virginia must pay the amount due the old state which has been so Long unjustly with held from her. The decision of the supreme court in the matter was announced on monday and the exact figure held by the court to be the proper pro portion of the old debt which West Vir Ginia is under obligation to Bear was fixed at $7,182,507, with interest. What the old state will get though in the Way of interest is another question. A satisfactory conclusion As to the amount ought to be speedily reached As the question is one of common honesty by a conference Between the two states but judging West Virginia by the past the old state has no right to expect an adjustment of the interest in a Way that will be fair or satisfactory to those representing her in the matter. An order from the highest tribunal in the land was necessary before West Vir Ginia could be made to pay the Princi pal due the old state and it is not Proba ble that the question of interest can be settled in any other Way. It is disingenuous to place Jive blame for the defeat of the popular election of unite spec ted by All that knew her for she\u25a0 was True to her Mission in life. Shei was a faithful wife a kind Mother Atrue Friend and a Good neighbor. She has left a legacy to her people and com Muriby far Richer and Greit ? or than that of Silver or Gold the Power the influence and memory of consistent Christian life that shall \u25a0 abide As a Sweet she fought a goo j fight finished the course kept the Faith and has gone Home to receive a Crown of life that Vadeth not her pastor.
