[For the Spectator.] TO MR. PIPES. Presumptous man doth pipe and blow His ever rank effusions: That girls are all an empty show— Y"et all the while will play the beau, And court these vain delusions. Poor man I is silly in his ways, Which costs him many troubles; He never means one-half he says— Or if he does why spend his days In hugging empty bubbles. He pours contempt on all the girls, Without the least exception. Yet their false smiles, their borrowed curls— In fact, these very made-up girls, Will drive him to distraction. Let such men li(ve) and die alone, Or else they' 11 give us trouble; For if we wed such hearts of stone, Too late we'll find we are undone, And woes are growing double. Ednie. _. Sleeping in Church. They would scarcely believe him when he told them that, when in Thurso somj time ago, he on one occasion saw six hundred people asleep in church.— Speech of Dr. Guthrie. O'er their devoted head, While the law thunder d : Snugly and heedlessly Snored the six hundred...

The two following pieces were received by us last week. The former with the caption meaning the three most wicked X's had the three ] words Tria Kappa Kakista written in Greek l characters, which we were unable to publish as written, as our office is not supplied with Greek letters. We therefore substitute the English let- . ters for the Greek. These pieces, we mean the . one headed "K. K.

For the Spectator. The Heart's Dearest Treasures. There's a neat little cot in the mountains That border my own native State, There the waters gush pure from the fountains, And glad smiles the weary await. 'Tis the long cherish'dhome of my childhood, The scene of enjoyments that were ; And I love the dark cliffs and tho wildwood, For my heart's dearest treasures are there. To the wand'rer, heart-stricken and weary, Whose birth-right is Liberty's smile, There's magic in horne —howe'er dreary, A picture that's sure to beguile. And, though lonely that vine-cover'd dwelling, Though wild blows the keen mountain air, Still my heart for that homestead is swelling, For its holiest treasures are there. W. F. 1., Staunton. Allie. Go to Work! In view of the flattering advices from Richmond, we would say to all those entrusted with the duty of organizing the conservatives of Virginia, that they must AT ONCE GO TO WORK!

$ftttntoti gftriator. ___ ! Tuesday, May 5, 1868. , Latest JSfeics / (Special to Spectator.) The following telegram was received at 9* o'clock last night: Washington, May 4, 1868. Bingham commenced his speech before the Impeachment court at 121 o'clock to-day, and spoke until nearly four o'clock. There was no argument in his effort It was a diatribe on fugitive slaves, the assassination of Lincoln and appeal to passions and vengeance. His speech gave less satisfaction to the Radicals than any yet delivered by the impeachers, much to the disappointment of every one of them. Ihe Wadeites are very anxious for the vote to be taken before the meeting of the Chicago Convention, but a majority of the Republicans will endeavor to delay the vote until after a nomination is made.

"A La Bismark.'' Oh! I love the prettiest girl in town! Her hair and eyes are a Bismark brown, And her dimpled face is a Bismark, too; Bismark the shape of her dainty shoe! On her gay turban, of a Bismark hue, There roosteth a Bismark cock-a-too; And the tiniest hand, within my own, Is snugly encased in Bismark brown. A snow-white coat, with a Bismark border, Bound to fit like a "special order;" With enormous buttons of Bismark brown, And trimmed at tho neck with goosie's down. I look in her eyes, of a Bismark tint, That gaze on me with a Bismark squint; I squeeze tho hand of the Bismark brown, And vow I'm the noblest cove in tow n. My arm doth encircle the Bismark waist; I snatch from her Bismark lips a taste ; And the matchless bust, if I may be bold, Is tinted "La Bismark"—so I'm told. And when I propose to the Bismark girl, She'll toss her nead with a single curl, While the softest hand, of a Bismark brown, Cosily nestles within my own. EPITAPH ON A DORG.
