Tho glory of the old dominion, aa cxomplificd

memory. The very tombstone and moss-covered

ors and magnates, are yielding to the corrod

tho loyal adherent of Church and king hoped
would porpctuate liberal learning and respect
for establinhed rule in tho Now World, exiata
only in a ground of decaying college halls.
There ia no place in Virgiuia whore one may
moro profitably study what remains of tho old
regime, or take notes of tho readjustment of
Virginia in hor relations to modern progress
and civilization, than this point
As Willianisburx is ropresontativo at the
land-owners who, until the civil war, held al
most baronial eway in eastern Virginia, to to a
great extent is William and Mary Collogo typi
cal of tho ancient eoat of cnlture and learning.
The town has about the same population that
it had two hundred years ago; certainly no
more than when Sir William Berkeley was
ruler here under the Stuarts. The place aeems
to have neither increasod nor decreased in all
of two centuries or more.
I stopped here primarily to visit 'William and
Mary College, and incidentally also to study
Virginia society and characteristics in a place
where their strongest points would bo most
likely to come out in bold roliof. My compan
ion was a young Philadelphian, a graduate of
Ilirvard. Thre was nothing to disturb tho
primeval solitnde of the villago save a lively
set-to between two colored boys, for the privi
lege of carrying my valiaa from the depot, and
tho victor in the contest made up for this by
demanding douMo price when he reacho I the
hotel. A short walk brought mo to the court
house sqnaro across which a plank walk the
only otio in town and perhaps the ouly mu
nicipal improvement of tho kind undertaken
for fifty years, had been projected a
few days before. There was no conten
tion between hack drivers for our patronage,
for they are unknown in Williamsburg. The
first siroet-croBsing on tho way was marked
Duke of Gloucester stroot, by which nam9 it
has been known einco the foundation of the
city. Another wa-j marked Naau street, an
other William street, and the entire uomencli
tnro carried one back to tho time of William of
Orange and beyond his day.
The walk through tiie v.llage to the college
took us through tho principal part of tho
town, and at the fame time gave us a fair idea
of it. About one-half the houses were hipped
roofed, wiih dormer windows, after the style
of the better class of residences still found in
the old towns in New York first t et.lod by the
Dutch. The roofs were covered with moss
aud hVheiiB. and were green with age. Though
it was the middle of tho after. ioon, the
streets were almost as qniot as Goldsmith's
decerted viilags. On our way we passed the
Episcopal church, a flue structure built on the
model of an English church of the better
grade and covered with a luxuriant growth of
ivy. The hand of the city church clock in the
steeple had stopped at half past 1 1, and on in
qui y as to how long time hd ceased t j be re
corded, a passer told us that it had stood so for
The college buildings of William and Mary
were in a lair state of preservation. The de
sign for their construction was furnished by
Sir Christopher Wren, tho architect of St
l'aul's. in London. In the middle of the walk
Ira ling tip to the main entrance was a statue
of Berkeley, Baron Botetonrt, erected in his
m-.-mory by tho house of Burgesses of Vir
ginia. "Liko the college, his lordship has un
dergone many hardships A vandal soldier
during the late war knocked off his head with
a canon -ba'L It was cemented '.n pla e again,
but ever since his lordship soems to bo suffer
ing with a crick in his neck. He was also
made a target for ritlo practice by the war
riors, and in conse-i nonce a good part of his
loi dehip's nose is mibsing. causing him to pre
sent a plebiau and generally disreputablo ap
pearance. We wandered about the place for some time
without teeii g anyone. A colored man, who
was engaerd in mending a broken ax-handle,
at last told us that we would probably find
I olonel Lweli in tne main building. A march
though the doerted halls was without result,
and we mad a detour to another part of the
grounds and returned after an interval. By
tliis time there was a group of live urchins
playing marble on the front steps. They
were the sole represtatives of the tine corps
of students, the rlower of Virginia and the
onth, who once filled the place. One of tho
lads conducted us to a wiq, where he said we
would find Tresidont Ewell, a brother of the
celebrated General Ewell. of Confederate
fame, by the way. The president had his head
quarters in a large room, one end of which
was filled with astronomical instruments and
apparatnses used in demonstrating natural
philosophy, the other with a lot of fenee-posu
ti.ese few salient points will give one an
idea of the college, the second oldest in Amer
ica.and one which, if it hail not been spoiled ef
its ante-revolutionary grants, would now bo
the richest not only in America, but in the
world. One can not realize the chango better
than bv imagining Harvard, with its centuries
of rich historic associations, reduced to the

after closing their college car-jer. Amo g

Williamsburg still retains tho impress or the
courtly soci.'ty of other days, and tho rcnnn
mcnt which is inevitable "from cnntict with
men of learning and culture, such as th ) mas

time Virginia prosperity has vanished, and the
citizens have not reconciled themselves to
m iki ig money by new departures. Tho coun
try is well stocked with eamo, tne rivers on
each side are tilled with fish and oysters, the
farms are still fertile. Wlierofore tho matter of
subsistence is an o.iy problem to solve, and
beyond that thoy trouble tlicmsolves but little.

A Tinker's Ham.
New York San.
What is a tinker's dam? Why should a tin
ker want a dam, and of w hat nse is a dam to
a tinker, in or out of his profeaaion? Graphics
As our esteemed contemporary is in pursuit
of information, we wiH reply that a tinker's
dam is a dam of dough or other suitable mate
rial, constructed by a tinker to confine his
molten solder to the business at hand ; aud
that, inasmuch as when a tinker's dam has
once served its purpose it possesses little or
no commercial vaine, the phrase has come to
be a frequently nsed and almost universally
understood synonyme for worthlessuese.
