Tuesdaf}> February 1,1870. The Legislature of this State will convene on Tuesday next, February the Bth, in accor dance wi}h the proclamation of Gov. Walker issued on the 27th ult. .-«-. In the Union—Taken In. - How do you feci since the State has been re admitted into the Union ? Feel that we have been taken in, but, in the lingo of the "man and brother," "we'll not take on much 'bout it."' We will not shed unavailing tears over spilt milk, but wiil labor to make tbe Radical party "kick the bucket.'' 1 They have "added insult to injury," and the injury inflicted will be forgiven sooner than the insult wantonly of fered. A few days since, we asked an honest Hibernian if he felt any better since the State was admitted. "Divil a bit" said he, "7 don't like the way 'twas done !" He struck the key-note of popular sentiment. Our people "don't like the way 'twas done." They de sired the admission of the State, but de.-ied her to be admitted as the equal of any other State. They will no...

Staunton gperiater. Tuesday, February 8,1870. The Political Action of the South. The French Courrier dcs Etats- Urn's is dis cussing the probable course of the South and its relations to the parties of the North. It conceives that the South will hold the balance of power and be able to decide the party con flicts of tho Union. This supposition takes lor granted that all the Southern States will be a unit. This will depend on circumstances—but the probabilities *re in favor of such a result. The Courrier i roceeds to consider what will be the policy of the South. It thinks there would be no difficulty in answering, if the ques tions of to-day and those soon to arise were the same which fomented the antagonisms and in flamed the hate of the past. But most of the questions which led to discord heretofore are finally settled, and sentiment cannot long hold out against interest. That which the South has now to consider is, not how it may avenge the wrongs of the past and revive abolished...

The Worn-out Font of Type. I'm sitting by my case, George; Before mo on the floor There lies a worn-out font of typo, Full twenty thousand score. And many months have passed, George, Since they were bright and new, And many are the tales they told— The false, the strange, the true. What tales of horror they have told, Of tempest and of wreck ; Of murder in the midnight hour, Of war full many a "Speck!" Of ships that lost away at sea Went down before the blast; Of stifled cries of agony As life's last moments passed 1 Of earthquakes and of suicides, Of failing crops of cotton, Of bank defaulters, broken banks, And banking systems rotten ; Of boilers bursting, steamboats snagged, Of riots, duels fought, Of robbors with their prey escaped, Of thieves and booty caught. Of flood, and fire, and accident, Those worn-out types have told ; And how the pestilence has swept The youthful and the old ; Of marriages, of births and deaths; Of things to please or vex us ; Of one man's jumping overb...

Staunton Jlpriatflr. Tuesday, February 22, 1870. Geo. Peabody. On Friday, the last funeral honors were rend ered in Baltimore to the memory of Geo. Pea body. The Bait. Gazelle says that a large, ap preciative and sympathetic audience completely filled the grand hall of the Peabody Institute A solemn and beautiful dirge inaugurated the proceedings, and was followed by an appropriate prayer from the Right Reverend Bishop Whit tingham. An oration was then delivered by S. Teackle Wallis, Esq. To say that it was alto gether worthy of the occasion and of the man whose fame it was intended to commemorate, would be to do it but scant justice. It was a candid and searching review of Mr. Peabody's life and character, interwoven with a brilliant disquisition on human weaknesses and tempta tions, and the trials and nobler rewards of life. It was as graceful and eloquent in language as it was lofty and true in sentiment. No justcr or grander tribute has, within our knowledge, been paid to any ma...

The Right to Growl. Will some one solve the question, why JS o philosophic owl, In all that's writ of human rights, Has named the Right to Growl ? The right of each, in his own way, To show his discontent Is "natural and inherent sure, And quite "self evident." Why, even the cur you pat or kick, If he doesn't like it quite. May growi'; and there's no decent dog But would .-ustain his right. And sure the right a dog enjoys The meanest man may claim. If liberty is anything More than an empty name. When things don't suit, and one can't find A reason that is pat, And <au do nothing but to growl. Why shouldn't he do that? And if one's lot, is hard to bear, Even through his own defect, Growling may keep his spirits up, And save his self-respect! Who knows what growling saves the state? Steam's harmless that has vent; But close the valve and feed the fire, And see how things are rent! Ay, let Americans respec, The sacred right to growl; For if the poor might growl no more Then straightw...
