Country Children. Little fresh violets, Born in the wildwood ; Sweetly illustrating Innocent childhood ; Shy as the antelope— Brown as a berry- Free as the mountain air, Eomping and merry! Blue eyes and hazel eyes Peep from the hedges, Shaded by sun-bonnets Frayed at the edges ! Up in the apple tree, Heedless of danger, Manhood in embryo Stares at the stranger! Out in the hilly patch, Seeking tho berries — Under the orchard tree Feasting on cherries — Tramping the clover-blooms Down 'mong the grasses, No voice to hinder them — Dear lads and lasses ! No prim propriety; No interdiction; Free as the birdlings From city restriction! Coining the purest blood— Strength'ning each muscle — Donning health-armor 'Gainst life's coming bustle ! Dear little innocents, Born in the wildwood ; Oh tha. all little ones Had such a childhood ! God's blue spread over them — God's green beneath them; No sweeter heritage Could we bequeath them ! Lunch for Humorists. . i.. Cut and dry—The sandwiches you ge...

gtarofara gperiator, Tuesday, May 24,1870. Subscription of the B. & Ohio R. Co., to ttie Valley Railroad. We are highly gratified to learn from head quarters that President Garrett made on Friday last the subscriptions of his Company to the. Valley Railroad, and that it was a lona fide, unconditional one. We confess to have had serious fear* in re ference to this matter, and take great pleasure in acknowledging that we have not done "Bis mark" justice. We take off our hat and say three cheers for Garrett. And now all that we lack to put this great work under contract is the subscription of Au gusta and Roanoke. Will these be forthcom ing ? They cannot now vote before the fourth Thursday in this month ; but the time is not far off and we beg our friends in those two counties to bestir themselves. It those who have been wont to take the lead of public senti ment will not lead now, let new men step forth to show the people that they are dead to their best interests if they do not v...

The Modern Proposal. BY EDWARD ELLIS KIDDER. HE. Your papa has property, So, my dear, has mine; You are fond of company, I am fond of wine. At your wedding shall attend All of the elite— If you wish to change your state I am at your feet SHE. To your pretty otYer, sir, I do not object; As for love, why that, of course, You will not expect. I must follow every new Fashion that appears— Have my own acquaintances, And my cavaliers. _______ To your wishes, one and all, Gladly I agree— And an equal latitude You will grant to me. All my thoughts shall be for you— That is, understand, All that are not for my club And my "four-tn-hand.'' BOTH Then, since we are both agreed, Let us name the day That shall see us duly joined In the usual way. Then we'll go as best we can Down life's checkered course, Till some lucky circumstance Grants us a divorce. __S_ Y. Leader. Lunch for Humorists. —< »_.

S| Mtetor. Tuesday, 3lay 31,1570. VALLEY RAILROAD. A letter of the 27th instant informs us that the County of Roanoke, yesterday, voted by a majority of over 200 more than the three-fifths required, to make the subscription of Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000) to the Valley Railroad Company. Salem Township, out of nearly GOO votes cast, gave but one vote against the subscription. We cannot withhold the meed of well de served praise for this prompt and decided ac tion of the smallest county on the line of the Valley R. R., a county the whole length of whose territory is traversed by a great through railway, in active operation, connecting it close ly, with all the great markets of the country and securing to its people all the advantages of transportation they need, (to use the language of the opponents of the subscription in Au gusta,) hardly any part of the county being more than ten miles from the Railroad; and yet it voted, with great unanimity, the liberal subscription of ...

Suppose. Suppose my little lady Your do:l should break her head! Could you make it whole by crying Till your eyes and nose are red ? And wouldn't it be pleasanter To treat it as a joke; And say you're glad 'twas Dolly's, And not your head that broke ? Suppose you're dressed for walking, And the rain comes pouring down, Will it clear off any sooner Because you scold and frown? And wouldn' it be nicer For you to smile than pout, And so make sunshine in the house When there is none without ? Suppose your task, my little man, Is-very hard to get, Will it make it any easier For you to sit and fret ? And wouldn't it be wiser, Than waiting like a dunce, To go to work in earnest And learn the thing at once ? Suppose that some boys have a horse And some a coach and pair, Will it tire you less while walking To say 'it isn't fair ?' And wouldn't it be nobler To keep your temper sweet, And in your heart be thankful You can walk upon your feet? Suppose the world dont please you, Nor the way some...

_§tatttttott %£dHtOT. Tuesday, June 14,1870. The Valley Kailroad. On Wednesday last the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company subscribed one million of doltars to the Valley railroad. The city of Baltimore had previously subscribed $1,000,000 on condition that $1,200,000 be procured from the counties and towns in the Valley of Vir ginia and $1,000,000 more from persons and corporations able to pay. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company voted the million that the last-named condition might be complied with. There remains now to be subscribed on ly $300,000 to make up the capital stock of $3,200,000, which is the basis required, as the county of Rockbridge has subscribed $400,000, Botetourt $200,000, Roanoke $200,000, and' the town of Staunton $100,000. It is only necessary now for Augusta to vote the proposed subscription of $300,000 to insure the construction of the Valley Railroad. She would be acting unwisely not to do so, for she would be more benefited by its construction than a...

Over the Bars. 'Twas milking time, and the cows came up From the meadows sweet with clover, And stood in tho lane, while pretty Jane, Had a quiet chat, with the drover — Such a quiet chat, that it scarcely seemed That a single word was spoken: While a magic spell with the night dews fell, And the rhythm of song was unbroken. The cattle stood at the lovers' side, Without any show of vexation, As though impressed that a five-bar rest Was a part of their rest-oration, And as Jane listened to notes that came , -Right under the bars and over, Her heart took wing, like a silly thing, And nestled up close to the drover. .. She heard him say that his home was poor, That he'd nothing but love to give her ; And she smiled content, as though Love had spent Every arrow he had in his quiver; She smiled content, while the evening air With voices of birds was ringing; And her lips confessed that a lowly nest Should never prevent her singing. So over the bars the lovers lean, In the joy of their sw...

-St-rtmhJtt _§prjator. Tuesday, June 21,1870. Bishop E. Iff. Marvin, of St. Louis, Mo. In connection with the closing exercises of the "Weslyan Female Institute," Bishop E. ______ Marvin, of St. Louis, Missouri, preached in the morning and evening of last Sabbath in the M. E. Church South of this place. This com modious church was filled, floor and gallery, both in the morning and evening. In the morn ing, the text was: "Remember now thy Creator in the ways of thy youth." The chief object of the sermon was to impress upon the minds of the young the importance of spiritual and moral cultivation,—that their thoughts should be oc cupied with subjects which tend to elevate and refine the spiritual nature—that it was true that if a child be trained in the way he should go, when he became old he would not depart from it —that it would be almost impossible for him to do so. He dwelt with impressiveness upon the im portance of spirit—its superority over matter— saying that it was more subst...

Battledores. BY FITZ JAMES O'BRIEN- May is blonde and Madge is brown, And twixt the two I fly ; One lives in country, one in town, But yet for both I sigh, Madge says that I'm in love with May, And pouts a sweet disdain ; Yet all the while her brown eyes say, "I fear no rival's reign." May is calm and like the moon That sails the summer sKy, Her voice is sweeter than the tune That scented night-winds sigh; And underneath her quiet glance All happily I lie, And live a dreamy, sweet romance "When her fair form is nigh. Thus 'twixt the two my heart is thrown, And shuttle-like I fly; For blue-eyed May is all my own When brown Madffeis not by, But loving each, and loving both, I know not how to lie. So here's to both, however loath, Good-ty, good-by, good-by! ■ . _ . ■ —— BY REQUEST. Dried-Apple Pies. I loathe! abhor 1 detest! despise! Abominable dried-apple pies; I like good bread, I like good meat, Or anything that's fit to eat; But of all poor grub beneath the sk es, The poorest is dr...
