I am a carpet-bagger— I*ve a brother, scalawag — Come South to boast and swagger With an empty carpet bag: To rob the whites of greenbacks, And with the blacks to "bunk,'' And change my empty satchel For a full sole leather trunk. I'm "some" on "constitootions'' For a "late rebellious state,;' And I'm "some" on persecution Of disloyal men I hate:' I'm "some" at nigger meetings When white folks aint about, And "some" among the nigger gals, When their manns don't know there out. I'm 'some" On a Convention, Where T draw an X per day, And opposed to all adjournments, If I only draw my pay. I drew it down at Jackson, Where four months I kept my seat, And laid a heavy tax on All you wear and drink and eat. But now my day is over, The Constitootion's killed: Again I am a rover, And my pockets are not filled; All my money has been spent on An electioneering bum — Farewell to Mississippi— O, "I wish I wos...

And yet only the upper end of this county is particularly interested, and that end is reported to be opposed to county subscriptions to Railroads....

The Twins. In form and foature, face and limb, I grew so like my brother, That often folks took me for him, And each for one another. It jjuzzled all, both kith and kin; It reached a dreadful pitch ; For one of us was born a twin, And not a soul knew which. One day to make the matter worse, Before our names were fixed, As we were being washed by nurse, We got completely mixed. And so you see by fate's decree, Or rather nurse's whim — My brother John was christened "me," And I was christened "him." The fatal likeness ever dogged Our footsteps when at school, For I was always getting flogged If John turned out a fool. In fact, year after year, the same Absurd mistake went on, And when I died the neighbors came And buried brother "John." ■ . • Burial Song of the Carpet-Bagger. Not a drum was heard nor a funeral note, As his corpse to oblivion we hurried; Not a groan escaped a gentleman's throat When the carpet-bagger was buried. We buried him deep in dirty soilSo deep that they will ne...

Lewisburg, Greenbrier, Co., W. Va, Friday, August 21st 18G8.

Tlie Psalm of Love. What the gizzard of the young man said to his friend who had just been kicked. Tell me not—you can't deceive me— "Love is but an empty dream ;" You had better far believe me; Women are not what they seem. Love is real! Love is earnest! Spooneyism's not the plan — "Pup thou art, to pup returnest,'' Was not spoken of a man. O'er the flirts broad field of battle, In the oft-tried flight of love, Be not like a baby's rattle; Be an eagle for your dove. Trust no female howe'er pleasant; Let the spooney heed her vows ; Hug—kiss—in the living-sPresent! Never minding future rows ! Lives of flirts do all remind us We can have a first-rate time;. Or, rejected, leave behind Us— (Here I cannot make a rhyme.) Something, that some poor green devil, Pitching in where we have tried — Some poor fool whose head's not level — Seeing, takes her for his bride. Let us then go in for lying With a heart for any fate; And while for answer we are dying, Make it pay if we must wait. O T JV ...

Augusta for the first time in her history thus takes a step backwards from the front to the rear rank in the march of public enterprize, and is the only county in Virginia which has yet refused aid to this great State work.
