Staunton _%edator. ___- Tuesday, October 15, 1867. The circulation of the Spectator is about as great as the combined circulation of both the other papers published in this place, and has as many subscribers in this county alone as are con tained in the whole subscription list of either of the other papers. 1 ■ ■ Convention or no Convention. By the apportionment of representation which has been made by General Schofield, though there is a majority of 13,000 white votes in tlie State, a large majority of the districts are under the control of the negroes. By this ingenious device it is so arranged that tbe minority is to rule the majority. If a Convention is called, it is absolutely certain it will be under the control of the Radicals and the negroes. Do we want such a Convention? Do we want voluntarily to pass under nsgro rule? All who do, wdl vote/or the Convention; all who do not, will vote against it. The recent elections show a great change is going on in the North. Let us try a...

A Life on the Ocean Wave. "A Life on the Ocean Wave!" The man who wrote it was green; Ho never has been to sea, And a wave he never has seen. He never has seen a wave As it dashed o'er the vessel's deck; He never has seen a fire at sea Or been floating upon a wreck. He never has been aroused From his morning's gentle doze By the sound of the splashing water As it fell from the horrid hose. He never has heard a man Scrubbing right over his head, With a noise sufficient to rouse From the grave the slumbering dead. And oh ! he has never been sea-sick, And crept into bed in his coat, While every motion increased his "throes," And his "feelings" were in his throat. That man may have sailed in a boat In some puddle or in a sound, But if he has been to sea, and wrote Such a song, he deserves to be drown'd. _— ■ .. —■ A Tale of Love. Two maids were walking in the grove, (They both were growing old), The one to tell a tale of love, The other to be told. "Ho is not rich," the elder said, Nor ...

The Devil and the Lawyers. The devil came up to earth one day, And into the court-house he wended his way, Just as the attorney, with very grave face, Was proceeding to argue the points in the case. Now a lawyer his majesty never had seen, For in his dominions none ever had been, And he felt very curious the reason to know, Why none hadbeen sent to the regions below. 'Twas the fault of his agents, his majesty thought, Why none of these lawyers had ever been caught, And for his own pleasure he had a desire To come to the earth and the reason inquire. Well, the lawyer who rose with visage so grave, Made out his opponent a consummate knave, And the Devil was really greatly amused, To hear tho attorney so greatly abused. As soon a» the speaker had come to a close, The counsel opposing then fiercely arose, And heaped such abuse on the head of the first, And made him a vilhan, of all men the worst. Thus they quarreled, contended and argued so long, 'Twas hard to determine tire one that wa...

From "The Land we Love." The Devil's Delight.

No masquerade devil of earth could begin, With his counterfeit horns and his mock tail, To look like his model Original Sin, As of lava and lightning and bitters and gin He sat and compounded a cocktail. But to give, in all conscience, the Devil his due, He seemed sorrowful rather than irate ; And his majesty moped all the dejeuner through With a twitch, now Mndthen, of the ribbons blue, And the look of a penitent pirate.
