For Charity's Sake. With a heart of cast-iron And Bessemer nerves, From few forms of danger Your bachelor swerves; But of trials that beset him The greatest by far Are the perils attending A Fancy Bazaar. Those Gardens Botanic I faced without dread, Not a notion of buying Came into my head; Since I had not a want, Why on earth should I fear— If their nothings were cheap, or Their nothings were dear ? Delicious Arcadia! "Sweet garden of girls'!'' How pleasantly crowded One eddies and whirls ! And is tempted by Houris, By Peris enrapt; Still in danger of trapping But never entrapt!" So I mused, while my heart A flint I could feel, And my Bessemer nerves The perfection of steel; When a voice sweetly tender, A soft pleading eye, Caused both to surrender With "Come! you will buy?'' 'Twas an anti-macassar! A thing I detest; They slip from one's sofas, One's feet they infest, They wisp and they tumble, Any each its part plays In the torture attending A bachelor's days. "Yet the price," I i...

Love Song-. BY CHARLES SWAIN. I wish my love was some fair stream, Soft singing through her woodland waj T , And I some star, whose loving beam Might in her bosom rest its ray. I wish my love was like the dew. Half hidden 'neath the roses lip, And I tbe young dawn, trembling through The fragrance none but I might sip. I wish—like the flowers that fondly meet And cheer and charm the humblest spot — Our lives might blend while life was sweet, And even death divide us not. OUR LOVE SONG. BY YUBA DAM. I wish my love were lemon punch, With strawberries floating in tbe cup; And she and I could meet at lunch — Then with a straw —I'd suck her up. I wish my love was like the Jew, And had gold laid away in store. D'ye think I'd 1 cad exchanges through— Or write for papers anymore ? I wish—like flowers that fondly meet, And bloom to furnish bees their honey, We had some way—while life is sweet — Of keeping house—without much money. Noted and Quoted. ■■ ■ " A drawback —a blister. Pies constitut...

__ Tuesday, September 10, 186 S. ; , Virginia's love for the Union. "I could not love thee, dear, so much, Loved I not honor more." When Daniel Webster said that bitterer tears would be shed over the destruction of the temple of American liberty, than were ever shed over the ruins of Greece or of Rome, he utter ed a sentiment, says the Petersburg Index, to which the heart of Virginia responded. The most solemn hour, continues that journal, which any deliberative body were ever called upon to face, was that hour in which the Con vention of Virginia were called upon to decide whether they would adhere to the North or the South, that hour in which Virginia was caljed upon to decide between coercion and secession —between a new Declaration of Independence and an old love for the Union of our Fathers. Right or wrong, Virginia had ever been ac customed to look upon the Union as her own offspring. She felt for it all that is combined of strength and constancy in parental affection, joined ...

Staunton £gerfator. Tuesday, September 22, 1868. The Maine Election. In the election which took place in Maine on Monday, the 14th inst., the Radical ticket wa3 elected by a majority of about 18,000. The Radical majority in the election in 18G6 was more than 27,000. In the recent election the Radicals gained about 5,000, and the Demo crats gained about 14,000. No one expected Maine to elect the Democratic ticket, though many supposed the Radical ticket would be elected by a less majority. The Democrats have not expected to be able to carry but one of the New England States in the Presidential election, and that State is Connecticut. The vote in the New England States does not indi cate how the middle and Western States will vote, for the argument in the Western States is, that the policy of the Radical party pro motes the interests of New England at the ex pense of the interests of the Western States — The reasons urged why the people of the West should vote again* the Radical party...

Good County Eoads Needed. As we have said on a former occasion, we believe that this healthful, fertile and beautiful Valley of Virginia, take it all in all, i_ the finest portion of the United States, and Augusta county is the heart of the Valley. There is but one thing needed in this good old county to make it the most desirable to live in, and that is good county roads. Money and labor could not be more profitably expended than in improving the county roads. We do not mean one or two, but all the roads in the county.— Every road should be made a good road, and should be kept continually in that condition.— It will require a great deal of labor to make them as they should be made, but when once properly made, it will not involve much ex pense or labor to keep them in good condition, if the prop...

Song of the Taxed. HY SPENCER V. CONE. Rock-a-by, baby—your father's a slave To the frantic fool and the Radical knave, And even the cradle you sleep in, poor dear! May be sold to pay taxes in less than a year. He works for you harder each day than before, But each night brings him home to a lessening store; For, of all that he earns, there's but little it leaves After feeding pet negroes and Radical thieves. He's taxed on the hat that he wears on his head ; The boots on his feet, and the sheets on his bed; Every rag that he wears; every T morsel he eats, His tea and his coffee ; his bread and his meats ; The pot they are cooked in, the cup that he fills, Every implement used on the land that he tills, Every T tool that he works with; the lamp that he burns; The thing that he works on; the wages be earns ; On the stove in the kitchen, the coal, too—still higher; Ay ! even the match that sets light to the fire; On his pipe of tobacco, his whisky and beer • On the medicine he buys for...

"^ Tuesday, October 6, 1868. Democratic Conservative Ticket FOR PRESIDENT, HON. HORATIO SEYMOUR, OF NEW YORK. FOR VICE PRESIDENT, GEN. FRANCIS P. BLAIR, OF ._ Elections Next Week. Elections arc to be held in Ohio, Pennsylva nia and Indiana on the 13th instant These elections are regarded as being especially impor tant, says the Baltimore Gazette, not only be cause they may foreshadow the result of the Presidential contest, but may also contribute ve ry materially to decide it. Pennsylvania seems to be watched with the most anxiety, and both parties there are straining every nerve to carry the State. According to the advices which reach us from there, the Democratic party is not merely hopeful, but confident. The people of Pennsylvania, we learn, attach little importance to the votes of the New England States. They argue that the struggle now going on is mainly an effort on the part ofthe Western States to check the pretension and to defeat the policy of the New England States, and t...
