Staunton Jipdatar. jhk Tuesday, December 28,1869. The Old Year. Ring the bells slowly, The year is lying Chilly and cold on his bed. Lofty and lowly, Time is still flying; Silence and list to his tread. Out on the mountains Winter is heaping Snowdrifts on evergreen leaves : Down by the fountains. Frozen while sleeping. Gently the evening .star grieves. Burnish your armor ""^ Quickly and brightly: Up with new heart for the fight. Plant your step firmer: Time touches lightly Those who keep pace with the right. THE NEW YEAR. The record is almost complete ; the page is nearly written over, soiled and blotted here and there with tears, and when a few more lines are added, we will fold the parchment and place upon it the great seal ofthe Past. The end of the Old Year draws nigh, and the rosy tints which herald the coming of the New already begin to appear. The stars hold their faithful vigil in the sky, and they seem to wax paler and to wear a more solemn, sombre glow, as they mark the sw...

If we can only unite in maintaining public faith and credit, our political differences will not be of much account." ■ i The opponents of the admission of Virginia have not gained much headway during the recess Judge Underwood was in Washington Wednesday, and says that while there is much that, as a radical, he cannot approve in the present reconstruction of Virginia he nevertheless favors her admissi...

Tuesday, January 18,1870. Admission of Virginia. Since the re-assembling of Congress the question of the admission of Virginia has been the chief subject of interest, and has elicited considerable discussion. It would seem that the end has been nearly reached. Though it is not very probable, yet it may be that even hefore we go to press, we may learn that the Senate, like the House, has adopted the resolution declaring "that the State of Virginia is entitled to representation in the United States." On Friday last, the motion in the House to substitute the preamble and resolution offered by Bingham for the bill reported by the Reconstruction Committee was adopted by the vote of 98 to 95. The preamble was then adopted by a rising vote 76 to 74. The bill was then adopted by 142 to 49. The announcement of the result was received with applause on the floor of the House. The bill, as passed, is as follows: Whereas, The people of Virginia have adopted a Constitution republican in form, and...

Tender and True, Adieu. He stole from its nest in my golden hair A knot of ribbon blue ; He placed on my hand a jewel rare, And whispered soft as he held it there, "Tender and true, Adieu, adieu!"' The almond was bending with blossoms white, The roses blushed through the dew; The violet smiled in the glowing light, And life was happy and hope was bright— "Tender and true, Adieu, adieu!" They brought my soldier home to me, And my knot of ribbon blue: But the cruel wound on his brow was hid, By the flag draped over the coffin-lid! "Tender and true, Adieu, adieu!" The almond flowers in the breezes shake, The roses still blush through the dew; But the spring-time of hope can never awake, And the lone, lone heart will wait till it break ! '•Tender and true, Adieu, adieu!" VICE VERSA. When, by the breath of summer flowers, The air is fragrance laden, In croquet play upon the lawn, Slippers become the maiden. But when, with winter's chilly blasts, Jack Frost essays to nip her, On &...

sday, January 25,1870. Admission of Virginia. ~.. * ..day last a week, the House of Representatives, by a large majority, passed Bingham's bill for the unconditional admission of Virginia, and, as the Senate had been i ered more liberal than the House, it was supposed that the bill, as adopted by the House, would be unhesitatingly adopted by the Senate, and up to the tirua of going to press last week its adoption by the Senate was hourly expected by a majority of the citizens of the State. The result has shown that they were greatly mistaken. On Friday last, just a tpeek to a day from the time the House passed Bingham's bill for the unconditional admission of the State, the Senate, after loading the bill with amendments and obnoxious conditions, so as [ wholly to change its character, passed it, by a vote of 43 ayes to 10 nays, as follows: An act to admit the State of Virginia to representation in the Congress of the United States. Whereas, The people of Virginia have framed and ado...
