_-iamttmt _sjr wtetor. Tuesday, April 12,1870. Richmond and the Valley Rail Road. In our last, we promised to say some thing in reply to what we have considered the harsh and unkindly comments upon the people of the Valley, in connection with the Valley Rail Road, recently published in the Richmond Whig and the State Journal. The articles, which we complain of, have been written in the interest of the scheme of consolidation now before the Legislature. As we understood them they were assaults upon the patriotism, the loyalty "to the old Mother" and the integrity of purpose of our people, in desiring to have the Valley Rail Road extended from Harrisonburg, through Staunton and Lexington, to Salem. Our impression has been, that as God made this Valley, bounded by mountains on each side of it, running from the Southwest to the Northeast, with streams of water flowing between these mountains, with fertile fields, and inexhaustible mineral wealth scattered up and down it, the only practi...

Staunton ggeftettrr. Tu^d^y7Ap^ill9,lß7o. Lewisburg—Circuit Court—Reunion, &c. The town of Lewisburg, Greenbrier county, West Virginia, for the past several weeks has presented a more enlivened appearance than it has done since the late "onpleasantoess,"— Week before last, its streets were made vocal with the rattling of carts, and the loud songs and ejaculatory guffaws of many negroes on their way to work on the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad. On Tuesday last, the Circuit Court for Greenbrier county commenced its session in Lewisburg, Judge J. M. McWhorter presiding, vice Judge Nathaniel Harrison resigned. More persons were in attendance at Court on that day than at any time since the war—many doubtless being prompted by curiosity to see the "new Judge," as his Honor was called by the majority, and to witness with what degree of dignity he would preside, and with what grace he would wear the judicial ermine. His Honor, so far, has made quite a favorable impressi...

"Amantis res Adveraae; or a Lover's Hard Luck." A homo ibat one dark night Puellas visitare, And mansit there so very late, That ilium constant care. Puer, walking by the house, Saw caput in fenestra, Et sunt morati for a while To see gui erat in there. Soon, caput turned its nasum round, In visum puerorum; Agnoscunt there the pedagogue, Oh I maximum pudorum! Progressus puer to the door Cum magna quietate, Et turned the key to lock him ia, Maratus erat sate. Then pedagogue rose to go, E3t feeling hunky dore; Hie non est potest to get out, The key's outside the fore. Ascendit sweet-heart nunc the stairs, Cum festinato pede, Et roused puellas from their sleep, Sed, habent not the door-key. Then excitato domino, By her tumultuous voice, Insanus currit to the door, Et obvenit the lady. "Furentem place!" the master roared, '* Why spoil you thus my somnum ? Exite from the other door, Si rogues have locked the front one*!' 1 Puella tristis hung her head, And took her lover's manum, Et cito...

Starotott _s§pttator. Tuesday, May 3,1870. Appalling Calamity in Richmond. The sad calamity which occurred in Richmond on Wednesday last has thrilled with horror and oppressed with grief every sympathetic heart. No pen can adequately describe, no tongue justly portray the heart-rending scene. At an unexpected moment, in the Capitol of our State, Death opened wide his capacious and ravenous jaws and received into his engulfing mouth the bodies alike of beardless youth, matured manhood, and advanced age, which he mercilessly mangled and devoured, heedless of the agonizing shrieks, groans and moans which filled that horrid abysm of suffering and death. Many were killed and a mach greater number wounded, some mortally and many seriously. In other columns will be found lists of the killed and wounded. This county has reason to gratulate herself, as none of her delegates were killed. Maj. H. M. Bell went down with the mass into the horrid pit, and had bis arm broken. Some time elapsed bef...

A Leaf from Life. BY F. S. COZZEXS. I lent my love a book one day; She brought it back; I laid it by ; 'Twas little either had to say— She was so strange and I bo shy. But yet we loved indifferent things— The sprouting buds, the birds in tune — And time stood still and wreathed his wings With rosy links, from June to June. For her, what task to dare or do, What peril tempt, what hardship bear ? But with her—ah ! she never knew My heart and what was hidden there ! And she, with me so cold and coy, Seemed, little maid, bereft of sense; But in the crowd, all life and joy, And full of bashful impudence. She married—well—a woman needs A mate—her life and love to share— And little cares spring up like weeds, And played around her elbow chair. And years rolled by—but I, content, Trimmed my one lamp and kept it bright, Till age's touch my hair besprent With rays and gleams of silver light. And then it chanced I took the book Which she perused in days gone by : And as I read, such passion eh...

Staunton gperiator. Tuesday, May 10,1870. Registration and Township Elections. The county has been divided into townships, voting places established, registrars appointed, and the registration of voters praparatory to the election of township officers, on the 4th Thursday in this month, will commence at the various precincts on this day, (Tuesday,) and will oontinue seven days. It is important to bear in mind that, all who expect to vote will have to come forward during the seven days of registration and have their names recorded, to entitle them to take part in the coming election. It is true the registrars will sit two days previous to the 4th Thursday to revise their lists, when those who failed to come forward at the first sitting can have themselves registered, but it is best and safest to attend to the matter this week. Many are under the impression that, as they were registered heretofore by the military authorities that ruled the State, it is not necessary for them to regist...
