Good County Roads. A few weeks ago, we offered some sugges tions in reference to the great importance of having good county roads, and expressed the opinion that the present system of calling out the farmers and others several times in the year to work a day or two on the roads would not secure such roads as are needed.

Tuesday, October 20, 1868. Democratic Conservative Ticket. FOR PEESIDENT, HON. HORATIO SEYIffOFR. OF NEW YORK. FOE VICE PRESIDENT. GEN. FRAIiCIS P. BLAIR OF MISSOURI. Northern State Elections. On Tuesday last, the 14th inst, State elec tions were held in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, lowa, and Nebraska. These elections did not result as we desired or expected. We desired that they would result in the success of the Democrats, and we expected that such would be the case in Indiana by a handsome majority, and in Pennsylvania and Nebraska by small majorities. We did not expect Ohio and lowa to vote as we desired, though we supposed that there was a probability that the Radical ma jority in Ohio would be small. The first re ports of the results of these elections greatly exaggerated the Radical majorities. The ma jority in Pennsylvania is about 10,000 instead of 18,000; in Ohio, about 15,000 instead of 25,000; in Indiana about 1,000 instead of 7,000, with similar reductions in Nebraska a...

From the New Orleans Picayune. Woman's Work Darning little stockings For restless little feet; Washing little faces, To keep them fresh and sweet: Hearing Bible lessons, Teaching catechism. Praying for salvation From heresy and schism, Woman's work! Sewing on the buttons, Overseeing rations. Soothing with a kind word Other's lamentations; Guiding clumsy Bridgets, Coaxing sullen cooks, Entertaining company And reading recent books, Woman's work! Burying out of sight Her own unhealing smarts ; Letting in the sunshine, On other clouded hearts- Binding up the wounded, Healing of the sick, Bravely marching onward Through dangers dark and thick, Woman's work! Leading little children And blessing manhood's years; Showing to the sinful How- God's forgiveness cheers ; Scattering sweet roses Along another's path: Smiling by the waj-side, Content with what she hath, Woman's work! Letting fall her own tears Where only God can see; Wiping off another's With tender sympathy. Learning by experienc...

"Western Lunatic Asylum," at Staunton. To the humane and contemplative the Wes tern Lunatic Asylum of this place furnishes a subject of great interest. The visitor, with his preconceived ideas that he is about to enter a Pandemonium on earth and expects his blood to be frozen with horror on visiting the abode of hundreds of the insane, as soon as he enters the gate and catches a view of the beautiful grounds within the enclosure begins to feel emo tions of admiration and pleasant surprise, and to wonder if he has not mistaken the place, and entered upon the beautifully ornamented grounds of a private gentleman blessed with vast wealth and highly cultivated taste. He passes up the gravelled walk, admiring the va riety, number and beauty of the flowers bloom ing on either hand, and thinks of Milton's des cription ...

[From the Little Corporal.] The Six Kittens. BY JULIA M. THAYER. Six dear, little, frolicksome kittens—O my ! Was ever a mother so happy as I ? All perfect in feature and supple in joint; Six nice, little tails whittled off to a point; Six pairs of blue eyes staring wildly around ; No end of white paws dancing over the ground. It's "Mamma, do give me dinner, I pray," And "Mamma, just whisk your old tail now, for play;" It's "me-ew" and "rne-ow," und "pur-r-r," and all that— It's a nip of the ear, and a hug and a pat; A spring and a clutch, a grand kitten melee. Then one head bobbing up—psh ! scat! scamper away. Now, pray you, be quiet, you mischievous elves ! La! the pantry door's open—they're helping themselves — See! Topsy is whisking the cream-pot about — She's got her head in, but she can't get it out! And Snuff has been snuffing the mustard — me-ew! And Snarley is in a delectable stew. Ho! Bridget is coming—where, where shall we fly? , . , She's waving the poker—there' 3 wrath ...

And he may find in the rural districts one of those vil lages, perhaps as large as Staunton, in which I doubt if he could find half a dozen houses in which meals are cooked. Suppose a village of a thousand houses: Instead of having a thous and kitchen fires and a thousand cooks daily at work for at least an hour or two, he will find two or three bake houses to which every family sends its meat to be cooked. See what an economy there is in fuel alone! It is the same case with the bakery, and you will find your immigrants, who come here and wish to settle, inquiring even in the country for the baker.

Staunton £pciafor. Tuesday 9 Xovember 10, 1868. Our People Calm and Serene. Though the Presidential election has not re sulted in accordance with the wishes of our people, they are not foolishly wading in the "slough of despond," nnr are they the helpless victims of "blue devils, 11 but, in the language of Bill Arp, they are "cam and screen," exer cising philosophic composure, if not christian resignation. The result has not taken them by surprise, for they saw that the Democratic party suffered itself to become "demoralized" when it felt the strength of the hosts of Radi calism in the "reconnoisanee" which took place in October. Since they witnessed the evidence of that demoralization, they could entertain but little, if any, hope of success in the gener al engagement, on the 3rd of November. They were, therefore, .somewhat prepared for the reception of the sad news that the Demo cratic legions had been routed, "horse, foot, and dragoons." Our people are too sensible to spend time ...
