Large quantities of cabbage are being shipped from this county at this time. In fact, the cabbage crop of the county is the largest in its history. The prices are excellent, ranging from $2.50 to $3.25 a crate. A good many spring turnips have been grown this spring and are now being shipped. The price obtained is excellent, ranging from $3.50 to $4 a barrel, net. Large quantities of strawberries are now going from this section. The Northampton crop is good, but Accomack grows much the larger quantity in this line.

The annual sheep penning on Assateague island, in upper Accomack, will take place this year June 12th. It is always a big day on that island.

The claims of the Presbyterian and Methodist churches for damages during the Civil War are being looked into by government employees. These claims have been before the Court of Claims for some months.
