The Venus of the Needle. O Maryanne, you pretty girl, Intent on silken labor, Of seamstresses the pink and pearl, Excuse a peeping neighbor! Tbo?e eyes, for ever drooping, give The long brown lashes rarely; But violets in the shadows live— For once unveil them fairly ! Hast thou not lent that flounce enough Of looks so long and earnest? Lo, here's more 'penetrable stuff,' To which thou never turnest! Ye graceful fingers, deftly speed! How slender and how nimble! O, might I wind their skeins of thread, Or pick up their thimble! How blessed the youth whom love shall bring, And happy embolden, To change the dome into a ring, The silver into golden! Who'll steal some morning to her side, To take her finger's measure, While Maryanne pretends to chide, And blushes deep with pleasure! Who'll watch her sew her wedding-gown, Well concious that it is hers; Who'll glean a tress, without a frown, AYith those so ready scissors ? Who'll taste the ripenings of the south, The fragrant and delicious...

§tottton &priator. Tuesday, JfarcJi 13,1870. To the Property-Holders of Staunton. We think the experience of the past week has fully proved the promptness, and efficiency of our fire department. The fire of Wednes day morning, though occurring at two o'clock A. ML, an hour when the whole town was wrapped in sleep, had burned scarcely tea mm utes, when they were upon the ground, play ing a stream of water on the light, dry wood buildings adjoining; thus saving them from in evitable destru • - ijn. But for tho timely assis tance rendered. It is difficult to say where the flames would hare been arrested, or how many poor families would have been turned homeless on the charities of the Town. The fire of Thursday night broke out ia a locality, and among material peculiarly adapted to make wide-spread destruction, and but for the prompt, well-directed efforts cf the fire de partment, such would doubtless have been the result. We have been lookers-on at fires in large cities, where pai...

_§toitftt %^tator. Tuesday, March 22,1870. Excitement in Richmond—Tempest in a Teapot. Since Wednesday last, there has been great excitement in Richmond caused by the/t.ft._u_ officio appointees of the military holding on to their offices in defiance of the State authorities and in violation of the laws of the State. The Radicals have fallen into the ditch which they digged for the Conservatives. It will be re membered that, in the Convention which framed the Sate Constitution, the Radicals had a controlling majority, and believing that they would also have a majority in the Legisla ture, and be abb to elect a Radical Governor, with a view of ousting from office at once tho Conservative office-holders ol the State, they made no provision, as had beeu uniformly done before on the change of Constitutions, to legal ize the official acts and to retain in office, till their successors could be elected or appointed in accordance with the provisions of the new Constitution or laws passed i...

A Question. As Annie was carrying a baby one day, Tossing aloft the lump of inanity, Dear to its father and mother no doubt— To the rest of the world a mere lump of hu manity- Sam came along and was thinking, may be, Full as much of Annie as she of the baby. "Just look at the darling, cried Annie, in a flut ter, Giving its locks round her fingers a twirl; "If I- was a man I know that I couldn't Be keeping my hands off a dear liuiegfrh And Sam gave a wink as if to say "may be Of the girls I'd rather hug you than tho baby P ''Now kiss it," she cried, though she still hugged it closer, "Its mouth's like ihe roses tho honey bee sips!"

Tuesday, March 29,1870. The Mayoralty Imbroglio. In the last issue, we gave an account of the occurrences in Richmond attending the contest between Ex-Mayor Chahoon and the present Major, H. K. Ellyson, up to Friday night last. On Saturday, notice was served by the U. S. Marshal upon Mayor Ellyson, the Chief of Police, and all the members of the new Council, that an application had been made for an injunc tion against them, which would come on for hearing on Wednesday, the 23rd, before Judge Underwood, a Federal Judge. The city was kept in a State of excitement throughout that day. About noon the 2nd station house sur rendered to Mayor Ellyson's police—giving up their batons, pistols, badges, &c.

This subscription, and $200,- -000, from Roanoke is necessary to be given in order to hold the $1,000,000, just voted by Baltimore, and without Augusta's subscription the whole road fail? for an indefinite time ; with it, the work will at once be put under contract from Harrisonburg to Lexington, and the $300,000 given by Augusta more than $1,500,- -000 will be paid out in the county, for the build ing of the road and for land damages.

Poetical Justice. In Herkimer county There never was seen A sweeter young creature Than Annabel Green. She was as fair as the lillies, And pure as snow, And Ichabod Brown Was sweet Annabel's beau. Fair Annabel Green Thus to Ichabod spoke: "Should you ever prove false My poor heart would be broke.'' Then he answered, "I hope To be roasted and eat, If my Annabel's love I shall ever forget." But Ichabod Brown Proved faithless, and soon Poor Annabel Green Was deserted and alone; Then she wept and she mourned. And she sobbed and she sighed, Till her tender heart broke And she lay down and died. Then Ichabod Brown Was never at ease ; He roamed far aw ay To the far Southern seas, And on going ashore Some savages met him, And built up a fire And roasted and ate him.
