From the Enquirer and Examiner, Jan. 15th. Augusta County. It is with peculiar pleasure that we inaugurate the series of articles long contemplated, and referred to yesterday, upon the resources of Virginia and the advantages she oners to men of all classes and conditions to come and settle within her borders, by inviting attention to the great county of Augusta:—not as great now, in territory, as when her boundaries were the Blue Ridge upon the South and Ohio and the Monongahela upon the North, and not as central to the mass ol Virginia as she was before the political rape of West Virginia from the domain of the Commonwealth, but still possessing an area larger than ancient Attica, and oc cupying the centre of the Great Valley of v lrginia, filling up its widest portion, and embracing the hundreds of perennial streams and fertile intervals that form the upper portion of the basin ofthe world famed valley ofthe Shenandoah. The position of pre emiuence assigned to this count}', is on...

Staunton . _-_aa Tuesday, February 2, 1869. AN ELECTION TO TAKE THE VOTE FOR OR AGAINST THE SUBSCRIPTION To VALLEY RAIL ROAD for $300,000 by the Connty of Augusta. ELECTION DAY, THURSDAY, MAY 37-b, 1869. BY ORDER OF COURT. The Order will be found in another column The Underwood Constitution and the Test Oath. The Washington correspondent of the Richmond State Journal (Radical) states that the Conservative members of the Convention which framed the Underwood Constitution, had it in their power to defeat the test oath so much objected to, but would not do it because, by retaining it, the Constitution would be made so odious as to make its rejection by the people certain. "This statement," he says, "was made before the Reconstruction Committee by Governor Wells, and evidently made a deep impression. And the impression will not soon wear off." The Journal of the Convention tells a very different tale. When the section of the Constitution requiring all office-holders to take the test oat...

The Editor's Song. The editor sits at his table, Writing as well as he's able, Paragraphs, leader and puff; His scissors beside him are lying, While he is in agony trying Of copy to furnish euough. Toil, toil, toil! ■ What a weary life is mine ! Wasting the precious midnight oil On leader and column and line. Working from morn till night, Working from night till morn, Oh! why was that steam press ever made, Oh ! why was the editor born! Toil, toil, toil! And whose is tho gain when won ? Whose are the trophies we achieve ? And for whom are the laurels won? To stand in the foremost rank Of each hard-fought party fray--To toil and toil and only get Abuse and neglect for pay. Toil, toil, toil! What a thankless task is ours. To bake the breai and press the cheese, That Senator Jones devours 1 To sit on a three-legged stool, While others have hair-stuffed seats, To prepare the hash and cook the stew, But never to taste the meats ! Toil, toil, toil I As the constant drop on the stone. So t...

BY ORDER OF COURT. The Order will be found in another column. "Don't Give up the Ship." The Mobile {Ala.) Register says that, "in the battles of war, or politics, or life, men who fight without hope cannot hope to win. Nor is the divine inspiration which drives noble souls ou to struggle in storm and adversity, to be quenched by one or a hundred reverses. The great soul rises from defeat, and a great cause broken and forced to earth, gathers up its fragments, like shattered battalions, to reform and renew the battle of freedom which man cannot afford to lose and live. Those who despair of the final triumph of the Democratic party and of the cause of constitutional liberty which it bears on the points of its spears, it seems to us, are at sea without chart or compass, on an aimless voyage....

The President elect has been so reticent, so wisely silent, that the public are left to conjecture as to what line of policy he will adopt, and as to what will be the character of his administration, whether conservative or radical. So far, he has so acted as to excite the hopes of the conservatives, and the fears of the Radicals. In the language of the Bait. Gazette, "while the question as to what he may do is an open one, there can be no doubt as to what he can do if he pleases. He can give to this country the peace she yearns for, and which he has promised. He can wield the sword of State with the firmness of Andrew Jackson, and faction will cower low before him.

The Velocipede. Carl Benson, of New York, was challenged to find a rhyme for 'velocipede,' - and produced the following: There was a man on a velocipede, Who .aid I need not give nay boss _ food, Without oats or hay lie wili go all day, it's cheap 1> keep a velocipede. The Boston Advertiser man sought to improve it thus: Th.re was a man with a velocipede, Who .aid, "1 will not do so gro.s a deed Aa make any fuss About h<<r_e-car or 'bus. When 1 can ride my velocipede." A wretch on the Chicago Tost being thus tempted, falls to wit: There's a vehicle called the velocipede Which is said to excel any ho.ss for .speed. ye all your jar.; Ab-Hit crowded cars, And mount, every man, his velocipede. The Cineinnatti Times then takes a shy at it with this deplorable result: A gentleman who cannot boss a steed, Can salely ride a velocipede. You drive with your two legs, And feed it on shoe pegs, Ani thus fat up your velocipede. Whereupon seme egotist of tho Phila...
