"I'm taking a walk for exercise sake, And beside there's a house I want to take." "To take a house !" said the Count. "Speak out, What are the folks at home about?'' "Not much has happened," the servant said, "Only your little white dog is dead." "Do you tell me my faithful dog is dead? And how did this happen?"' the master said.

Staunton _§ pttator. Sr- _^___M Tuesday, August 3. 1869. - The Iron-clad Oath. Nothing is as yet known definitely in refer- I ence to the purpose of the Administration re specting the enforcement of the test-oath, though the indications are that it will not be. Jno. W. Jeti_':ii_, the ch_rman ofthe Radi cal (Wells) Executive Committee, has written a letter to Dr. G. K. Gilmer, chairman of the Republican (Walker) Executive committee, proposing a union of the parties they respec tively represent We take it for granted that this extraordinary proposition would not have been made had not the leaders of the Wells party become convinced that the test-oath would not be enforced. From the tone of recent articles in the State Journal, the Richmond organ of the Wells party, we infer that that journal has despaired of the enforcement of the test-oath. From these and other significant indications we infer that the members elect of the Legislature will not be required to take the iron-clad oath....

Stowton Jljjmiator. Tuesday, August 10. 1869. It will be seen from the article we publish this week from the Baltimore Gazette, entitled "Baltimore's Railroad connections," that of these that journal considers the most important of these road-- that which will connect Harrison burg with Salem—in other words, the proposed "Valley Railroad," in the construction of which this section is so deeply interested. The article referred to augurs favorably for the sub scription, on the part of Baltimore, to the stock of the Valley R. R. Company. ___. —» .►— " Tennessee Election.
