In Vacation. Dear little maiden with brown eyes, If you should know you were so near me, How great would then be your surprise, Perhaps you then would almost fear me ; You blushed so on the beach to-day, When you observed how close leyed you ; That was to-day, and here to-night I'm put in-the room beside you. Only a wall between us now, And I can hear you just as plainly Rustling about; I don't see how I made myself look so ungainly, Staring at you to-day ; but, then, You might take any fellow's eyes- To-morrow I'll be introduced, And then I will apologize. i know my conduct was quite rude. Still its effects can be amended, And then I don't believe you could Have been so very much offended — I hear her at her trunks ; of course, That's a sure sign of coming sorrow ; So many dresses taken out, So many victims for to-morrow. Outside, tho kisses of the moon Silver the waves along the ba3 T ; Inside, she wonders if maroon Looked well with her brown eyes to-day. I see the clouds flit o'e...

_______ Tuesday, October 19, 1869. AUGUSTA COUNTY PAIR. General Remarks. Tlie second annual exhibition of the Augus ta County Fair was held on Tuesday, Wednes day, and Thursday of last week, the 12th, 13th, and 11th instant. It was, in ail respects, and in all its various departments, a grand success. The quantity, quality, and number of articles exhibited—the sports, amusements and pleas ant entertainments supplied—the vast number of genteelly-dressed, fine-looking and well-be haved visitors who thronged the grounds, formed a combination which made this one of tbe most attractive and successful Fairs which has ever been held in this State. The general estimate of the number of persons present on the several days was as follows: First day, 3,000; second day, 10,000; third day, 9,000. A more beautiful and imposing spectacle than that presented by the natural amphithea tre, thirty feet in height and four hundred yards in length, closely packed with seated vis itors, and the foot walk ...

Staunton Sgeriate ____ Tuesday, October 26, 1869. Hampden Sidney College. For the assistance of those of our readers who are discussing the question "where shall we have our sons educated?" aud who still be lieve that the 'College" is an institution whose functions cannot be assumed by tho "Univer sity" with advantage to the student, we desire to present a few considerations concerning the venerable institution above-named. It may well be called "venerable," having been founded during the revolution of 1776, and is therefore, among the oldest institutions of learn ing in this country. And to-day, after having passed through many changes, at times with its halls thronged with students, and at other times so depressed as to be almost in a mori bund condition, it seems, under it- present au spices, to have started anew in the race of gen erous rivalry with the other educational insti tutions of the South. In regard to ihe course of study at Hampden Sidney, many are disposed to urge an ...

A Maiden's Soliloquy. .Oh dear me! I Am ready to co*, And it sometimes seems _s though I should die ; Nobody knows The number of woes That beset such a maiden as I. They call me a flirt, And try to convert Me into a hatefal, contemptible prude; If they don't mind, I think they will find That I*ll soon teach them what to conclude. As for tho beaux, Heaven only knows "Why they seem •_ determined to persecute me ; What under the sun I ever have done To make them act so, I can't see. If they ask mc to ride? Or co walk by th-ir side, Whenever I think they're about to propose, I managpe the thing— Contriving to bring The subject at once to a c-o.e. _U_ then 'f I wait It may be too late — For men are bat ackle at best (so they say;) I ___k I'li _.«?iue (Oh dear! how I'm tried) To accept one without more de-lay.

&-ronton jipriator. 1 Tuesday, Xbvember 2,1869. The fortune or rather misfortune ofthe Spec tator Office this week illustrates the truth of the remark of'Shakspeare that, "ills come not in single file, but in battalions." Hie Senior Editor has been summoned as a witr:of 3inCouv tin another county —the Junior has been married, acd the principal compositor has a boil on his arm, and of these three it is difficult to tell which is the worst so far a3 the execution of work ia the office is concerned, and, at this time the office is overwhelmed with work to do. There is consolation, however, in the reflection that Courts adjourn, honey-mooes wane, and boils get well. In a short time, the normal condition of affairs will be restored, and business in the office will be made to resume the "even tenor of its way." » _. The New York Tribune has a paragraph to the effect that many thousand fraudulent votes were cast in the last Presidential election in that city; but even if the fact were ...

Les Adieux. We met—heigh ho! A year ago: To see was to adore you ; At least I know I told you so. And many more before you. I bade you speak— Your blushing cheek Referred me to your mother j Yet, fatal freak, Within a week You flirted with another. My hopes were bright, My cares were light, No fate our loves could sever: And now to-night 1 have to write 'Adieu, adieu forever!"

Tuesday, November 9,1869. Death of Sir. Geo. Peabody. It is with unaffected sorrow that we an nounce the death of Mr. Geo. Peabody, one of the most munificent benefactors of this count -y. He died ift London at half past 11 o'clock on Thursday night last, the 4th inst.— The infirm condition in which Mr. Peabody quitted these chores, about a month ago, left but little hope that he would be spared to the multitude of his friends for more than a short time longer. The pathetic words in which he bade farewell to the Trustees of the Peabcdy Institute in the closing week of September last have been sooner fulfilled than perhaps even he himself anticipated. Full of years and honors, he has gone to his rest; but the mag nitude of his benefactions and his noble disin terestedness wiil keep his memory fragrant so long as gratitude warms the breast of man, and gentle deeds that grace the doer bring blessings ia their tiain. .-»- Secretary Boutwell's interference in the elections in Tennessee, ...
