TO FIFTY CENTS' SUBSCRIBERS. Some months since we proposed to send the Spectator to the election on the Constitution for fifty cents. Then finding that it was uncertain when the election would take place, if at all, we agreed in our issue of April 14th, to send it to the Ist of July, which would ensure to each subscri ber more than the value of the money paid.— Then the convention fixed the 2nd of June as the day of election—after which it was postponed by order of Gen. Schofield. We will send the pa per to such subscribers —as we agreed to do—to July Ist, at which time their names will be taken off'our list unless they, before that time, agree to take it for a longer time. We desire to continue the paper to them, and w...

Housekeeper's Soliloquy. I wish I had a dozen pairs Of hands this very minute, I'd soon put all these things to rights; The very mischiefs in it! Here's a big washing to be done, One pair of hands to do it; Sheets, shirts and stockings, coat* and pants, How will I e'er get through it? Dinner to get for six or more, No loaf left o'er from Sunday; And baby cross as he can live, He's always so on Monday. And there's tho cream, 'tis getting sour, And must forthwith be churning, And here's Bob wants a button on, Which way shall I be turning ? 'Tis timo the meat was in the pot, The bread was worked for baking, The clothes were taken from the boil — Oh, dear! the baby's waking! Hush, baby dear I there, hush-sh-sh, I wish he'd sleep a little, Till I could run and get some wood To hurry up tho kettle. Oh, dear! oh, dear! if P comes home, And finds things in this pother, He'll just begin and tell me all About his tidy mother. How nice her kitchen used to be, Her dinner always ready Exactly wh...

" A mate I a mate!" she wildly said, As. with impetuous haste, Her Queen across the board she sped, And by his monarch placed, So confidant she seemed to be, Such boldness in her mien, She did not for a moment see HLs King could take her Queen "A mate! a mate!" at last she cried, "Yes, 'tii a mate I see, But only such, my darling pride, _.» I would havo from the. 1" He iaid, and round her lovely form His manly arm be pressed, Till she unto his passion warm An answering love confessed.

The great National Democratic Convention to nominate Democratic or Conservative can didates for President and Vice President met in Tammany Hall, in New York city on Satur day last the 4th day of July. It is the largest Convention ever held in this country on any occasion.

Ladies' Boots. BY CHARLES G. _„L_X_. Just to put you on your guard I'll give you, short and brief, A small hotel experience,. _ . Which filled my heart with grief: Last summer, at the Clarendon, I stopped a week or more, And marked two "booties" every morn Before my neighbor's door; Two boots with patent leather tips- Two boots which seemed to say, "An angel trots around in us;" They stole my heart away, I saw the servant take 'em off", With those of common brutes ! His soul was all on sixpences, But mine was on the boots. And often in my nightly dreams They swept before my face, A lady growing out of them, As flowers grow from a vase. But ah ! one morn I saw a sight Which struck me like a stone — Some other name was on the book : Those boots were not alone. A great tall pair of other boots Were standing by their side, And oft they walked that afternoon, And with them walked—a bride! Enough, enough—my song is sung : Love's tree bears bitter fruits ; Beware of beauty, friend of mine!...

The Devil's Visit to Washington. The Devil sat on his sulphur throne, , And heard with a bitter grin, Reports from the planet he deems his own, As his black subs brought them in. The Fenian scare in Great Britain pleased His cynical temper well, And the news from Brazil and Paraguay, From Hayti, Peru, and Sisil Bay, Not forgetting the late Chinese affray, Rather tickled the King of Hell. But when his scouts of this "Happy Land - ' Delivered their dark report, The Demon waved in the smoke his hand, And gave a triumphant snort, "This news," he yelled, "is the best I've heard Since sin on earth began; The work I favor goes bravely on, The 'model Republic' is dead-and gone, And the powers that govern at Washington Have adopted my patent plan." Then turning to Moloch, his darkness said, "I'm off for the Ten Miles Square; Rule thou, old boy, in thy master's stead, While I see to business there." The blackamoor carriers, one and all, Applauded their chief like mad ; So he changed his shape...
