Oh! Well I Remember. Oh : well I remember How sadly I tore The first checkered apron That ever I wore, How I boohooed and bellowed And flooded with tears, When my mother gave me A box on the ears; Then a big piece of pie for the damage she'd done To her deare=t, her darling, but good-for-nought son. Oh! well I remember (They are fresh in my mind) Those gay little trousers, All buttoned behind; How I played in the puddle, And daubed them in dirt! — How my grandmother shook me, 'Till I screamed with the hurt—' But she promised to buy me a nice sugar toy. If I'd but remember to be a good boy. Oh ! well I remember My advent to school; How 1 got on the dunce-block, And felt like a fool; How I pulled out the paper From Emily's curls, For which I was planted On a seat with the girls! 'Twas a punishment fraught with confusion and pain, But oh ! I should like to be put there again. Oh ! well I remember When older I'd grown, I had to spread clover As fast as 'twas mown ; And the finger of fan...

Mm __ Tuesday, November 23,1869. Before and After Election The Baltimore Saturday Night says that, ' 'if there was as much virtue and honesty and regard for the public weal after an election with the successful party and the candidates elected by it, as there appear* to be—if we believe all that is said—whilst the contest was pending, no danger need bo apprehended nor fears entertained of dishonesty, trickery or malfeasance in office. Then agaiD, on the other hand, if the opposing factions or parties were as profligate and corrupt as each makes the other appear to be, all good citizens should unite in honest endeavors to defeat both and secure, if possible, men in whose integrity, full confidence might be reposed. We are always told before an election, that taxes are to be reduced, economy observed in every respect, and an honest administration of affairs depended upon, if the party so proclaiming be supported and elected to power; yet after this has been done by confiding voters, t...

School-Girls. See, in shining bands together, Trooping on through sun and shade. In the balmy autumn weather, Many a lovely little maid. Little school-girls, sweet and merry— How each eye with gladness glows, Every lip is like a cherry, Every cheek is like a rose; Oh, the winsome little school-girls 1 No white lillies, no red roses, Emblems of their dearer selves,Bear they, but of dead-leaves posies Fashion now the frolic elves ; For the Frost, with fingers nipping, Gardens all of bloom bereaves, And the school-girls onward tripping, Gather up the gorgeous leaves; Oh, the joyful little school-girls! Momently, the foliage flutters Down, as soft the south wind sighs, And it decks the dusty gutters With a wealth of splendid dyes, Brighter than the silks of Naples, Or than gems of kings or earls, With the largest of the maples Fill their hands the little girls : Oh, the smiling little school-girls! These are flowers the Fall has brought 'em, Who are fairer far than they; Be it long ere ...

Baby's First Tooth. BY PRUDT. Come,look at the dainty darling ! As fresh as a new blown rose ; From the top of his head so golden, To the dear little restless toes; You can tell by the dancing dimples, By the smiles that come and go, He is keeping a wonderful secret You'd give half your kingdom to know. Now kiss him on cheek and forehead, And kiss him on lip and chin ; The little red mouth is hiding -The rarest of pearls within. Ah, see! when the lips in smiling Have parted their tender red ; Do you see the tiny white jewel, Set deep in its coral bed ? Now where are the sage reporters, Who wait by hamlet and hill, To tell the listening nation The news of its good or ill ? Come weave with your idle gossip This golden blossom of truth — Just half a year old this morning, And one little pearly tooth ! — Little Corporal. For the Spectator. I am constrained to plant a grove, To entertain the girl I love; This apple grove I must compose, Of nineteen trees in nine straight rows; And in eac...

Staunton ggfdatcr. jA. Tuesday, December 7,1869. The Proposed "Walker Party." We regret to learn that some of our more ardent politicians about Richmond have set on foot a movement, for the purpose of establishing a new ioal party, to be called the "Walker party." We think the movement unwise and premature. The people of Virginia are in no condition now to participate in partizan politics.We think, with Com. Maury, that, for the present at least, "it is the policy of Virginia to e«chew politics." Our attention should be directed to the improvement of our material interests. It will be time enough to talk of political parties when we are restored to our full ri<rht« iv the Union, and are in a condition to ba°ck our opinions by our votes. At present, we have no recognized right to participate in the political contests ofthe nation, and it seems to us, therefore, that it is rather an idle thing for us to be vaporing and saying what we would do if we had the power to do it.

Stetmtott Jiprtator. jA __ Tuesday, December 21, 1869. CHRISTMAS! Before another issue of this paper, our readers will have celebrated, in a becoming manner, we hope, the anniversary of the most important event which has occurred in the history of the world since the auroral dawn of creation when the morning stars sang in unison together—"the coming of Christ in a human form as the 'babe of Bethlehem,' to save and redeem." Eighteen hundred and seventy years ago, whilst the shepherds were attending their flocks on the hill-sides of Judea, on the darkness of the night they saw a near star arise, bathing the landscape in mellow splendor, and pointing its steady beam to the babe just born in a manger, and at the same time heard countless multitudes of radiant beings, with heavenly-tutied voices, singing the glorious anthem : "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good icill to men. In the language of J. T. Headiey: "For four thousand years, the world had summoned its thoughts...
