Take the Papers. BY IT. P. WILLIS. Why don't you take the papers ? They're the life of my delight; Except about election time, And then I read for spite. Subscribe! you cannot lose a cent, Why should you be afraid ? For cash thus paid is money lent On interest four-fold paid. Go, then, and take the papers, And pay to-day, nor pay delay, And mind my word for its inferred; You'll live until you're gray. A a old neighbor of mine, While dying of a cough Desired to hear the latest news While he was dying off. I took the paper and I read Of some new pills in force; He took a box—and is he dead ? No—hearty as a herse. I knew a printer's debtor once, Baked with a scorching fever, Who swore to pay her debt next day, If her distress would leave her. "Here, Jessie, take these silver wheels, And pay the printer now!'' She slept, and slept, and then awoke, With health upon her brow. I knew two men, as much alike, As e'er you saw two stumps, And no phrenologist could find A difference in their bu...

Staunton .ipriator. jGt Tuesday, September 21, 1869. Toleration—Charity—Harmony. The late war naturally called into action the worst passions of our nature. During the ter rible struggle, men looked at every subject from their own peculiar stand-point, and few were willing to accord to those who differed from them, even the merit of sincerity. Men were drunk with passion, and impatient of all dif ferences of opinion. This intolerant spirit pre vailed, not only in regard to matters of a po litical character, but extended even to ques tions of morals and religion. And, strange to say, that many professed disciples of the reli gion of peace, were more bitter towards those who professed, in the main, the same faith, but differed from them in matters of form, rather than of substance. They could tolerate those who did not profess to belong to any church much more readily, than those who agreed with them on all the fundamental doctrines of Christianity, and yet differed from them on some ...

Cleopatra Dying. Glorious victim of my magic ! Ruined by my potent spell, From the worlds imperial station, Have I dragged thee down to hell? Fallen Chieftain ! Unthroned Monarch ! Lost through doting love for me! Fast, on shades of night eternal, Wings my soul its flight to thee! Ciesar shall not grace his triumph With proud Egypt's captive Queen! Soothed to sleep by aspic kisses. Soon my heart on thine shall lean; Soon my life, like Lotus blossoms, Swift shall glide on Charon's stream ; Clasped oncf more in thy embraces, Love shall prove an endless dream ! Iras ! Chai main! Bind my tresses! Place the crown above my brow! Touch these hands, and take these kisses- Antony reproves not now: Gods my lips breathe poisoned vapors ! They have struck my Charmain dead! Foolish minion! Durst precede me, Where my spirit's Lord has fled? None shall meet his smile before me, None within his arms repose ; Be his heart's impassioned fires, Quenched upon my bosom's snows ! None shall share his bur...

Station Spdator. _*£___■. Tuesday, September 28, 1869. Augusta County I?air. In speaking of our Connty Fair, the Rich mond Whig says: "This will be the second-annual exhibition of the Augusta F.ir. Tiie first was an eminent success, who.-' happy influence in encouraging the farmers of the Valley is an auspicious au gury of a yet more brilliant triumph. With Colonel John B. Baldwin as the president of the society—a genflema whose name is the synonym of success; with the accomplished and popular William Frazier as chief marshal; with directors, committees and other officials, in cluding the best names of great old Augusta, and with such counties as we have named to back up this exhibition, it is impossible to con ceive of anything short of agrand and complete success." i Death of Hiss Kate Walker. Last week, Miss Kate Walker of Orange county, lost her life in saving that of her father's. Mr. Walker being disappointed in pecuniary matters, in a fit of temporary insan ity, attempted to ...

J53& Tuesday. October 5, 1809. The Legislature of Virginia. On this day the Legislature of this State ' meets in Richmond for the purpose of a'dopt ng the 15th amendment. It appears from At torney-Genera! Hoar's opinion, which will he considered tantamount to an order, that the Legislature will be required also to adopt the 14th amendment—though that is not "nomi nated in the bond"—and to elect United States Senators. We presume the session will be a short one. We think it unfortunate that the papers in Richmond agitated at all the ques tion of the election of Senators. The result has been that they have extorted an opinion which amounts to an order that such election should be had at this session. This q-iestion should have been aliowed to sleep. The mis chief has been done and it is useless to repine. There is no charge for exhibiting any article at our County Fair, and any premium can be taken without costing the exhibitor one cent, unless, in addition to the premium, he seek...
