Come and feast your eyes on the collection of improved breeds of horses, cattle, sheep, hogs and poultry of every kind that will contribute to the interest of the occasion. Come and examine the steam-plow, the portable engine for farm purposes, the corn-shncker and Bheller, the ditching machine, and every other Improved agricultural implement by which your labor may be lessened and your profits increased. We feel warranted in expressing the confident opinion that our next fair will equal, if not surpass, in interest and in the variety of articles on exhibition, as well as in the number of persons who will be present, any ever before held in the State. We expect to see there many persons from other States, and we cordially invite them to contribute of their industry and skill to the interest of the occasion. We desire that they, as well as Oar own peoplo, shall witness what Virginians and Virginia soil are capable of doing. TELEGRAPH NEWS. FROM WASHINGTON. The Crops in Maryland. The accounts from different sections of Maryland continue to be very flattering. The Elktoa Democrat says: "All kinds and varieties seem solicitous to make amends for last year's failure, and tho proverbially poor bearer-flare thick with yonng fruit. The frnlt in the county never looked better. The peaches promise more than a full crop. That there will be too many so many as tc materially rednce their value iu market is now the apprehension. - -A correspondent of the Clayton Herald states that tho prospect for wheat in Kent is more flattering iban it has been for the last ten y jars, especially iu the vicinity of Massey's X Roads, Galena and Kennedy ville.f, The Qentreville Observer feraarks: "Wheat looks well In some parts of Queen Anne's county, especially in the vicinity of Sud-lersviiie and Beaver Dams. All are very sanguine, with reference to the peach, crop iu both Kent and Qneen Anne's counties; and if nothing happens to injure either wheat of peaches there wiil bo a greater yield of both crops on the average in both counties than ever hag been realized bejore." reKSr2IRAiLROAD. The Snow mil Messenger, referring to this road, sayst T't - Messrs. Pratt and Kimball, contractors of the Vineland Railroad, Bridgeton, N. J., propose to visit us in a few weeks with a view to getting the contract. They are willing to take from $15,000 to S20.000 in stock, and as much more iu bonds; to furnish rolling stock, &c, aud to take the contract for running the road for 20 or 30 years. The ghort rftilroad which these gentlemen have built in New Jersey, about the same length as the Worcester road, cost from two to three times as much as our road is estimated to cost, and was expected to be dead stock, but to the agreeable surprise of the stockholders, has proved a paying aud valuable investment. If figures do "not lie, such will bo the result if promptly built. Destructive Fire in Queen Anne's County. Md. On Tuesday Daniel Maginnis emmenced Dnrnmg brush-wooa on Air. vv m. Bowker s iand. lying contiguous to Crumpton. The wind was Diowing iresh at tne time, and the fire spread farther than was desirable.. After some effort it was thought to be extinguished, and the party went nome ior uiuner. onoruy alter a aense cloud of smoke arose: it was then ascertained that the fire had rekindled, and, carried along by the brush, had spread among the cord-wood. Mr. R. Bostwick and bis fishermen hastened to the scene, but it had gained so much headway. the brush was so tnicKiy scatterea around, and there being in the field about five hundred cords of pine wood, ali dry and highly combustible, it was found impossible to subdue the fire, and they therefore directed their efforts to turning the path of the fire aside and saving a lot of wood in a corner 01 me neia, wnica iney succeeded in doing. The fire, meanwhile, was sweeping across the field with alarming rapidity, and the houses occupied by Maginnis and Andrew Anderson were ia danger of falling a Drey to the devouring element, but were preserved through the exertions of a number of citizens. The clot hing of one of Maginnis s daughters caught nre, but she speedi ly extinguished it by jumping into a creek. The damage has not been exactly ascertained, but itis estimated that over 300 cords of wood aud about 1,500 pine fence rails were consumed, the money value being about 1.000. The underbrush in adjoining woods, northward, also took fire, and some of the trees were so badly scorched that they are believed to be dead. The loss, although immediately falling on Mr. Bowker, will affect Others, as the wood was about being sold, and the proceeds invested in improvements here. Vrvtnptontan. The Brooklyn Tragedy. The New York papers describe Miss Lizzie benbner, whom Talbot attempted to kill, asof dark complexion;of great personal beauty and about twenty years of age, her deportment and language showing the highest culture. In searching Talbot's room a tin box was found, containing two bottles, each of which had one-eighth of an ounce of mor phine. These bottles had never been opened, as they Dore tne original seal, in tne 00 x was also a bank book, showing that he had in the Na tional park: KsnK to nis creatt nearly $-4,uuu. There were with It some letters aud documents. none of which gave a clue to his premeditated suicide. His parse and his watch, a very valua ble gold repeater, lav on a chair. The watch had stopped at A. 51. All the appointments ot tne room snowea mac tne occupant enjoyea wealth and that his tastes were refined. His library contained no books of light literature. They were mostly on political economy, jurisprudence, ethics, moral philosophy and history. His wardrobe was superabundant. The Oil Production or Pennsylvania. The Tknsville (Pa.) Herald says that the oi! production during the mouth of April shows an increase. The- shipments amounted to 11,067 bar rels of 43 gallons each, being an excess of 1.27G barrels over the shipments 01 March, 'ine num ber of wells in process of drilling during the month was 333. beiug an increase of 41 over.the previous month.- Operations- had been commenced on upwards of fifty more. The stock of petroleum increased during the month, and on the 1st of May the total in an hands was 305.970 barrels of 43 gal) jus. As comofircd with the stock on April 1, tie stock on May 1 shows an increase of about S-.'.OOO barrels. The stock on the latter date was about 56,000 barrels less than.on the same day last year. The shipments of crude equivalent by all routes from the region during April reached 282,280 barrels of 43 gallons each, being a aauy average or about u,4W barrels. The Virginia Conbtituion. The Lynchburg Virginian says that if the county organization clause in the proposed constitution is to be retained in it without a separate vote, it will op- Bnse the whole constitution. The Richmond 'ispatch 'says "it is not at all pleased with the action of the Presideutwith regard to Virginia affairs," and that it "regarded him as pledged to submit not only the drfranchising features, bnt several others to a separate vote. Instead of so doing, he has consulted a cabinet of crazy radicals." We don't know about the "crazy" if so tbere is much "method in their madness," and they are working to thoroughly "radicalize" affairs in Virginia. We believe it is now generally admitted that the recent conservative convention would have acted wisely had it deferred any action whatever until the election was ordered in Virginia. Alexandria Gazette. Severe Hail Stork. Quite a heavy storm of rain and hail passed over Lancaster, Pa., on Thursday evening. The hail was as large as pigeoL eggs, and in some localities fell in great abundance. Mr. L. C. Eby, residing in West Chestnut street, showed ub a bough of an apricot tree containing several small apricots, which were entirely encased with a large cluster of bail stones frozen together. The mass of ice thus formed was over an inch In thickness and some four inches long by three in width. It appears that much damage baa been done to the frnit trees and zrape vines in this city by the hail, the rudimentary frnit in many places being beaten off and strewn over the ground.

It is boldly asserted In several journals that the coal companies of Pennsylvania instigated the strike which has lately taken place among the coal miners of that State for the purpose of raising the price of coal. We can hardly believe there is any truth in the statement. It ia further stated that, as far as can be ascertained, nothing has been done by the companies toward effecting a compromise or acceding to the demands of the disaffected workmen. It. is thought that they will hold out for a lougtime and accept nothing less than the increase now demanded, which is about fifteen per cent. The strike will no doubt become general. Ji.'Yi Commercial. An Octogenap.ian Gomk. Mr. John McQnay died at his residence in Rroad Neck on Monday. MtT McQnay was born on the 7ch of April, 1784, aud consequently had passed his eighty -fifth birthday. He had been a member of the M. E. Church for sixty years, and was for forty years a local exhorter. Mr. McQnay was always a man of active, industrious and correct habits, to which fact may, perhaps, be attributed the unusual lengthening of his span of life. He leaves behind him three generations children, grand-cliildreu and great-graud children. St. Michael's (Md.) Comet. United States Consuls Declining. Secretary Fish is in receipt of letters from persons who are appointed consuls, and who have received their instructions, declining the places, because they ascertain that they cannot travel abroad from place to place. When they applied for consulships they misapprehended their duties. It is the opinion of the secretary that at least one-half of the consulates lately filled will be vacated in six mouths.

Ae. -Washington, May lo. Secretary Fish yesterday informed a leading member of the foreign afiairs committee that the instructions to Minister Motley were about completed. It appears t hat in the discussion in the cabinet meeting last Friday respecting these instructions, the reported triple European alliance was alluded to. Of course, as there is no official notification of such alliance, there is for the present to be no change in the determination of the government touching this question. , ; fat as concern? the reported alliance, It has been given but rhat the instructions would ba based upon points made iu Mr. Sumner's speech, but it is kuown that Secretary Fish is opposed to taking such bold ground. There is assurance that our minister will be very little restrained at the outset in his actions, and goes to England somewhat as did Reverdy Johnson, with geueral instructions only, and free to act upon his own best judgment, aud commencing diplomatic negotiations de novo. - An order will shortly be Issued by the Secretary of the Navy changing the names cf a large number of ships in the navy. Under the law of Congress, the Secretary was required to name all vessels of the first class after the States, the second class after the leading cities or rivers in the Union, and tho third class was left to his taste and discretion. Secretary Welles, it is alleged, disregarded the law and named the vessels as suited him a ad the department. In reorganizing affairs the new Secretary has docided to carry out the law of Congress, aud accordingly a large number of the names of vessels will be changed. President Grant Etated some ten days ago that there would bo no appointment made to the Spanish mission for some weeks, as Minister Hale's resignation diinot take effect until tho first of Jnly. No new minister will be sent out thore nntii after that time. The statement, therefore, that Gen. Sickles was shortly to be commissioned must be premature. Receipts from customs and internal revenue during this mouth have been quite heavy, tho customs footing up ' nearly seven millions and internal revenue over live millions. To the latter Bhotild be added aieo an additional two millions properly of last month's receipts and not in-clned in the public debt statement. In ali from customs Mid internal revenue tho receipts are, including the above "mentioned " commission, about fourteen rail lions. If payments in the War Department, Ac, bo not 'extraordinarily heavy this month, the debt will show a decrease on the 30th of about seven millions. . Col. Badeau, late of Gen. Grant's staff, and now assistant secretary of legation to Englaud, left here for New York to-night, whence he sails for Europe on the lath instant. Postmaster General Creswell yesterday finally decided that ho will not enter into contract wtth the Commercial rTavigation Company of New York, or with any othej- parties, to carry the mails from New York, Boston or Baltimore under and in pursuance of the law of last July. Mr. Cresweli is opposed to the feature of that act guaranteeing bonds, and although the Commercial Navigation Company is now governed by well-known financial men, who are willing to dispense with the guarantee of bonds and furnish ample means themselves for building ships suitable for the mail service, yet the Postmaster General regards the matter as now substantially pending before Congress, and that it would therefore be impolitic, if not absolutely without authority of law, for the department to take action as the case now stands.

Interesting South American News United States Minister McJInhon The Paraguayan War News, Src. New York, May 16. The Buenos Ayres Standard, of March 30, ptates that United States Minister McMfthon had arrived at Asuncion, but was very reticent in regard to his trip into the interior. Small forces of Paraguayan cavalry had frequently appeared at the outposts of the allies, but made no attacks. Signs of insubordination broke out in the ranks of the allies when they were ordered to march into the interior. It was not expected that the allies wiH be prepared to advance Tor at least' two months. A Buenos Ayres letter to the New York World, dated March 2f, states that on March 11th Lopez rigged ud two railtoad cars with two forty-pounders, and, enclosing them like baggage cars, ran them with a locomotivo right up to where a large force of Brazilians were repairing a bridge and fired on them right and left, and, after raking the r encampment, fled unharmed, the guard being armed only with lances. The next day the flwt corps of tho allied army, 10.000 strong, encamped near the bridge, and a regiment scoured the country, but as usual the Paraguayans did not appear when expected. Lopez bas established a powder mill near his headquarters. Thore Is believed to be a large number of families wauderiug in the woods who do not desire to return to Lopez, and a force was about to be sent out to. them to give them protection and bring them into the allied lines.

" v creased travel have been found necessary Jo bej proviueu. jur. nenry lyson. tne supenutenaent of the railroad, bas satisfactorily met these demands heretofore, and on and after to-day still greater opportunities of reaching this favorite section of the county will be afforded by tho running of additional cars as far as Govaustown, four miles from the cily. At certain times of the day cars will be run to and from that point every half hour, instead of hourly, as at proseDt. Under this arrangement twenty-three cars duily leave Govaustown-for the city, whilst twenty-four cars from the city run to that point, forty-seven cars passing daily along the route. It is gratifying to note this increase of travel, and pleasant to record its prompt recognition by the railroad company.. The want of accommodation for the many ' colored persons, male and female, servants and ' others who have frequent necessity to use these cars, either through business or pleasure, has frequently attracted the attention of the most respectable portion of the traveling community on this route, and it is gratifying to know that Mr. Tyson, iu response to a petition uumeronelv signed by those most frequently using the cars of the company, has Indicated an intention to shortly provide suitablo and sufficinnt accommo- ! dation for this class of persons. This will meet 1 a want that has long been felt, and which, as tho subject has to be finally settled nt some time or other, might properly now be advanced, with a view to justice aud humanity.
