Attention is called to the new advertisement of Mrs. K. M Kellej'. The Circuit Court for this •ounty. Judge 11. W. Sheffey presiding, is still in session. Thanks—To Johnny Noon, for late papers in advance of the mail; and to H. Kerr for a piece of excellent cheese.

The Printer's Hohenlinden. In seasons when our funds aTe low. Subscribers are provoking slow, A few supplies keep up the flow Of dimes departing rapidly. But we shall see a sadder sight, When drums pour in from mourn to night' Commanding every sixpence bright To be forked over speedity. Our bonds and due-bills are arrayed, Each seal and signature displayed: The holders vow they must be paid, With threats of law and chancery. Then to despair we're'almost driven, There's precious little use of livin', When our last copper's rudely riven From hands that held it lovingly. But larger yet those dues shall grow, When interest's added on below, Length' ning our chain a foot or so, When gazing at them hopelessly. 'Tis so, that scarce have we begun To plead for time upon a dun, Before there comes another one, Demanding pay ferociously. The prospect darkens —on, ye brave ! Who would our very bacon save; Waive, patrons, all \ 7 our pretexts waive, And pay the Printer cheerfully. Ah ! it would y...

Staunton £ptdatat\ _______ Tuesday, November 17, 1868. Gen. Grant. He acted with manly heroism iv demanding that the parole of General Lee and other Con federate officers should be religiously respected. His conduct on that occasion induces the be lief that, when in a position to control the mat ter, he will insist that the spirit and intent of that parole shall not be confined to the officers, but shall be extended to all the people of the Confederate States. No man knows better than he does, that Gen. Lee would never have surrendered his sword, if it had been under stood that the people whom he represented were to be subjected to African domination.— General Grant's letter demanding a surrender excludes the possibility of such an interpreta tion. That letter, the second to General Lee, says: General— Your note of last evening, in re ply to mine of same date, asking conditions on which I will accept the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia, is just received. In re ply. I woul...

The Picnic. If to boil and to bake and to butter, To bottle, to slice, and to pack, To get off before you are ready, And before you are ready come back ; If taking a seat in a pie-dish, And losing your meat in the grass, And having bugs drop in the pudding, And snails take a bath in your glass; If toads holding hop on your sandwich, And beetles inspecting your bread, AVhile brambles and thorns catch your feet, And worms pelt down on your head : If scattering in every direction, To seek in the foliage a cover, And find that you have just been outstripped By some Sary Jane and her lover; If gathering up all the fragments Of such an Arcadian feast, You can't tell whether 'twas most like Entertainment for man or for beast; If that kind of thing is enjoyment, In longer or shorter measure, And you are simple enough to believe so, Why then help yourself to tho pleasure. But for me, (I speak from experience, The subject I've closely pursued,) The reply will be found in Scripture, "I pray th...

Staunton $£edator. _______■__ Tuesday, November 24, 1868. Be Ready to Defeat the State Constitution. The Norfolk Virginian, with that vigilant and earnest patriotism which characterizes that able journal, calls upon the Press of the State to join it in rousing the people to a lively sense of the danger by which they are menaced, and says, with truth, that the loss of the Presiden tial election is a mere trifle in comparison to the stunning disaster of defeat incurred in the fight on the Constitution. The administration of Grant will be, for the most part, exterior to our daily life ; but government, under the in strument now pending, would deal with us in our domestic as well as public relations. In evidence of which we must always bear in mind that the power of attendance in mixed schools is lodged in the negro majority in the General Assembly. It says "no argu ment is necessary to show our people, at this day, that the new Constitution would, if put in force, make a Pandemonium of...

4___\ Tuesday, December 1, 1868. fl_rThe President of the Valley R. R.

H. Stuart and others. Valley R. R. Subscription. Should the Valley R. R. be built the farm ers in this county would not only have a choice of the best flour and cattle markets in this country North and South, but they would have the advantage of having their marketable pro ducts of whatever character transported to the best market at the lowest possible rates. This result, which is a very important one, would be sure to be realized, for as the markets of Bal timore, Alexandria aud Richmond are so near ly equal, the rates of freight would determine whether the farmers would send their products by the Chesapeake and Ohio R. R. or by the Valley Railroad, and this would make these competing roads reduce the charges for fr...

Fro and Con. 1.-THE SMOKER. Sometimes the big world vexes me, Sometimes dull care perplexes me; Sometimes on the sea of life Such storms around me cluster, And roar and rave and bluster, I seem to sink in the strife. No matter! There's always truce In the heat of the wildest war; At least I dream or think so, As I smoke my first cigar. Sometimes when nothing ails me, Except that the money fails me I envy the rich in their pride ; Though their only obvious merit Is the gold that they inherit, And couldn't earn if they tried ; But quietly, after dinner. 1 banish such thoughts afar. What do I care for fortune As I smoke my second cigar ? Sometimes in the heartless city, I think it a shame and pity That cash and virtue are one; That to swindle for shillings seems awful, While to plunder for millions is awful, If only successfully done. But why should I mend my morals, Or call the world to my bar ? I've dined, and I wish to be quiet— I'll smoke my third cigar ! lI—THE TOBACCO HATER. Upon...

Staunton ilpctetor. j6_ Tuesday, December 8, 1868. The Case of Mr Jeff. Davis. The argument on the motion of Mr. Davis' counsel to quash the indictments against him for treason was commenced on Thursday last in the U. S. Court at Richmond, Chief Justice Chase presiding. The following counsel are engaged in the trial: For Mr. Davis, Chas. o'Conner, Esq., of New York ; Hon. Wm. B. Reed, of Philadelphia; Judge Old and Jas. Lyons, Esq., of Richmond—for the Govern ment, U. S. District Attorney S. F. Beach, R, H. Dana, jr., Esq., of Boston, and Geo. Wells of Richmond. On Thursday the argument was opened by Judge Old in support of the motion to quash the indictments on the ground that, as Mr. Da vis was suffering the penalties and disabilities denounced against and inflicted on him for his alleged offence by the 3rd section of the 14th article of the constitution of the U. S., any ju dicial proceeding to inflict any other or further pain, punishment, or penalty upon him for such alleged of...

To Farmer Boys. "I'm sick of hoeing in the corn And following the plough ; Of working hard from dewy morn 'Till eve with heated brow. No longer will I stay to mow Or pitch the scented hay ; To the great city I will go, Where wealth is gained by play." Tut, tut, my man, hush up that song, Let wisdom be your guide ; That dream of wealth may lead you wrong, And wreck 3 ou on the tide- Sit down with me upon this stone ; Your team will take no harm, If we aren't kings upon a throne, We're kings upon a farm. God's healthy breezes round you blow, His bird's your music make, And sweetest rest is yours, you know, W T hen night doth overtake. The harvest will your toil repay ; Those fields of waving grain Are growing through the sunny day And in the summer rain. Men work as you in shade, O'er books and papers bent; The work of life is easy made Only by sweet content.
