'TIS OVER. We have seldom met with anything more solemnl}-, expressively beautiful and touching than these lines: Mv heart is chilled and my pulse is low, But often and often will memory go, Like a blind child lost in a waste of snow, Back to the days when I loved you so, The beautiful long ago. I sit here dreaming through and through The blissful moments I shared with you— The sweet, sweet days when our love was new, When I was trustful and you were true, The beautiful days, but few. Blest or wretched, fettered or free, Why should I care how your life may bo Or whether you wander by land or sea? ■ J. only know'you arc dead to me, Ever and hopelessly. Oh, how often at day's decline, I pushed from my window 7 the curtain vine, To see from your lattice the lamp-light shine ; Type of message that, half divine, Flashed from your heart to mine. Once more the starlight is silvering all, The roses sleep by the garden wall; The night-bird warbles his And hears again through the night air fa...

Don't Stay Late To-Night. The heart of home is beaming With rays of rosy light; And lovely eyes are gleaming, As fall the shades of nightAnd while thy steps are leaving The circles pure and bright, A tender voice, half grieving, Says, "Don't stay late to-night." The world in which thou movest, Is busy, brave and wide; The world of her thou lovest Is at the ingle side; She waits for thy warm greeting; Thy smile is her delight; Her gentle voice entreating, Says, "Don't stay late to-night." The world, cold, inhuman, Will spurn thee, if thou fall; The love of one poor woman Outlasts and shames them all; Thy children will cling around thee, Let fate be dark or bright; At home no shaft will wound thee, Then, "Don't stay late to-night." Jottings. It is strange that Gen. Grant, with his well known dislike of bores, promoted Gen. Auger. John G. Saxe says that "Laws, like sausages, cease to inspire respect in proportion as we know how they are made." A sharp chap thinks that Columbu3 is not e...

..__■ ___ Tuesday, 3£ay 4, 1869. The Conservative Convention. Knowing the interest which our readers must feel in the proceedings of the Conservative Convention which assembled in Richmond on Wednesday last, we devote a large portion of our space this week to their publication. As this was the only body which could speak authoritatively for the Conservative party of this State its utterance was awaited with deep anxiety. The result »f its deliberations, it was felt, would inspire hope or induce despondency. It was necessary that it should recommend a policy which all conservatives could adopt without compromising their principles, as it is absolutely necessary that no divisions should exist in the party. Upon the united action of all the conservatives depends the salvation of our State from ruin and its citizens from woes unnumbered. The object to be accomplished, if possible, by the Convention, was to recommend a line of action which would enable the Conservatives to act together, ...

[HY REQUEST.] People will Talk. We may go through tho. world, but 'twill be very slow, If we listen to nil that is said as we go; We'll be worried and fretted and kept in a stew, For meddlesome tongues must have something to do. For people will talk, you know people will talk, O! yes, they must talk, you know. If quiet and modest, you'll have it presumed That your humble position is only assumed, You're a wolf in sheep's clothing, or else you're a fool; But don't get excited—keep perfectly cool. If generous and noble, they'll vent out their spleen— You'll hear some loud hints that you're selfish and mean ; If upright and honest, and fair as the day, You'll hear some base hints in a sly, sneaking way. And then if 3*oll show the least boldness of heart, Or a slight inclination to take your own part, _ They'll call you an upstart, conceited and vain; But.keep straight ahead and don't stop to explain If threadbare your coat, or old fashioned your hat, Some one of course will take notice...
