KISSING. Sitting to-night iv my chamber, A bachelor frigid and lonely, I kiss the end of my pipe-stem— That, and that only ! Reveries rise with these smoke-wreath .— Memories tender surround me ; Girls that are married or buried Gather around me. School-girls in pantalets romping— Girls that have grown to be misses ; Girls that liked to be kissed, and Like to give kisses. Kisses —ah, well I remember! Those in the corner were fleetest: Sweet were those "on the sly;" those in the Dark were the sweetest. ENIGMA.

Weather. Recent inundations of mushy mud, sooty rain, and dark complexioned snow, justify the follow ing doggerel, fearfully and wonderfully made: "Weather dropping.

BY ORDER OF COURT. The Order ivill be found in another column. Radical Convention at Petersburg. We devote a great part of our space this week to the proceedings of the Radical Con vention, composed of "black spirits and white," which assembled in Petersburg on Tuesday, the 9th inst., to nominate a State ticket. It will be observed that they nominated for the office of Lieut-Governor a mulatto by the name of Harris, thus showing whither that party is rapidly drifting. The proceedings, as might have been expected from the character of those who composed it, were of the most disgraceful character, and presented a scene unprecedented in the history of this State. The negroes, it is due to them to say, be haved better than the whites who sat side by side with them, mingled together like black and...

A Serenade. I will not ask to press that cheek, Without a guarantee That nature spreads the pearl and red Which there I e.lways see ; Those lustrous lips I will not touch, Unless you promptly say That their bright hue is fast and true, And will not wash away. Those brilliant eyes may owe their charm To belladonna's use, Complexion tints, I've heard dark hints. Are changed by walnut juice: And if I ask the dearest girl, For whom alone I live, For one long tress to kiss and bless. It mayn't be hers to give. The penciled brow, the raven lash, Are open to a doubt, And some mistrust, but they're unjust. The shape I rave about; So in this dubious state of things, And as the weathers warm, I will not seek to press that check, Or ask to clasp that form. EPITAPHS.

BY ORDER OF COURT. The Order will be found in another column. Patience, Vigilance, Caution. Some surmise that the apparent breach in the Republican or Radical party is a mere ruse—that the Walker party are merely re cruiting, drawing forces from the Conservative party of the State, and that the purpose is, when sufficient recruits have been thus ob tained, to declare a truce in the mock battle, and to reorganize their combined forces by agreeing upon a common ticket. Conservatives should keep aloof, and avoid all "entangling alliances" till they are better enabled to see what course duty and patriotism dictate they should pursue. In a word, they should pa tiently await, as a respected French lady, who enunciated the English language with some difficulty, was wont to say, further "devil-vp men..." P...
