Staunton Spectator.' Tuesday, June 28,1870. Last week, in the Senate, Mr. Lewie sub mitted the following resolution, which was con sidered by unanimous consent, and agTeed to: "That the President be requested to cause to be communicated to the Senate a statement of the moneys paid into the Treasury of the U. S., on account of all property seized, condemned, and confiscated in the State of Virginia under and by virtue of the act of July 17, 1862, enti tled, "An act to suppress insurrection, to punish treason and rebellion, seize and confiscate the property of rebels, and for other purposes;" including also a statement of the title of each ease, the name of the owner of the property sold, the purchaser of the same, and of the of ficers by whom, respectively, the proceeds of sale were paid into the Treasury, and the amount actually paid in each and every case." We hope there wiU be a thorough examination into this whole matter. "Onr Next Leader." The Lexington Gazette, under tho captio...

The Miller. There was an old man, and he lived all alone With hi-* three sons, and they w*ere all grown ; This old man he made his will. And all he had was a little old mill. First he called his eldest son, "Son, oh son, my race is run ; If I a milieryou should make, Pray tell unto me what toll you'd take?" "Father, father, my name's Feck, Of every bushel 1 d take a peck." "You tool, you fool," the old man cried, "That's no _uch toll as a man can ride."

.itatmtim &prfator. Tuesday, July 5,1870. _ ________________ Information for Distillers of Brandy. The regulations concerning the manufacture of brandy have been materially changed since last year. The bond required is not so large as befor, being proportioned to the producing power of the distillery. The distiller is also relieved from the per diem tax and several oth er requirements. The following is a synopsis of the more important of the present regula tions : Every Still in the possession of any person must be registered either as being for use or not for use. Omission to register incurs a pen alty of five hundred dollars. Notice on form 27-_ must be given before commencing. The form can be obtained of the Assistant Assessor. After this notice is given the stills to be used will be surveyed.— After the survey the distiller must give bond in amount not less than double the amount of the tax on the spirits that can be distilled in his distillery in thirty days, but in no case...

A Young Mamma's Lament. Not long ago I used to sing, And dance, and feel so gay: But now this little baby thing Has stol'n my youth away ! I am not old, at least in years, My hair's not streaked with gray, No wrinkles on my face appears, And yet—"l've had my day !" How lovingly my heart did bend To Charlie, when he came! I never dreamed 'twould put an end To parties, 'mid such game. Before the bridal charm took flight, A novelty I seemed, And when I danced and felt so bright No harm was ever dreamed. But by and by my baby came, And up sprung in my heart A holy, tender, deathless flame, Of which my life seemed part. But sparkling eyes, and sunny smile, With dfm_.es deep and rare, In baby form cannot beguile The heart of Fashion fair. They ridicule such joys as mine, They care for me no more. My husband's ceased to be divine, My baby's thought a bore. 3o now they never ask me out, They have no room they say, For married people all about Their dancing rooms so gay. But in the "German's...

.itamumt %suMar. Tuesday, July 12,1870. Virginia Insurance Companies The leading feature of the "Virginia Life Insurance Company" is, its being a thorough Southern Institution—both in organization and management —and its principal object is to re tain and invest at borne a portion of that vast amount of money which annually flows from the South to the North for insurance premiums. It is a fact patent to all, that since the war, nearly two million dollars per annum are sent from Virginia to the Nortß to pay such premi ums, to be used there during a life time, for investment in mortgages upon real estate, and for tbe general development of their commer cial and manufacturing interests. S_range it is that we should allow this yearly drain upon our State when we are so much in peed of money at borne ! When, because of our scarcity of money, farmers, mechanics and merchants have to pay exhorbitant interest to carry on their op erations ; and when we have it in our power to prevent this l...

Connubialities. When Adam slept, God from him took A bone, and, as an omen, He made it like a seraph look, And thus created woman. He took this bone not from his pate, To show her power more ample; Nor from his feet, to designate That he on her might trample. But neath 'his arm, to clearly show He always should protect her; And near his heart, to let him know How much he should respect her. He took this bone, crooked enough— Most crooked of the human— To show him how much crooked stuff He'd always find in woman. __-. Parody on Mary had a Little Lamb. Mary has a Grecian bend, Which crooks her like a bow, And where the steps of Mary tend, The hump is sure to go. It_follows her behind all day, And when she goes to school It makes the children laugh and play To see her such a fool. The teacher sees her pass along, His blushing face he veils ; Then Mary sees how very wrong It is to wear false tails. iAinch for Humorists. . *0-. Beauties often die old maids.

£temtton& $v tatirr. Tuesday, July 19,1870. War in Europe. The troubles which have been impending be tween France and Prussia, but which it was hoped would have been amicably adjusted, have culminated in an "acceptance" of war on the part of Fraßce, in eonsequenee of an insult of fered the French minister Benedetti, by the King oi Prussia. It appears that the French ambassador demanded of King William, who was at Ems, an immediate explanation of his intentions in reference to the Spanish throne, which the King refused, and the minister was dismissed, thus, as is interpreted by France, af fording a casus belli. The excitement all over Europe is intense, while there seems to be an enthusiastic feeling on the part of the two nitions about to engage in a bloody conflict—both appear to be "eager for the fray." Should France prove successful tbe Napole onic dynasty will be fully established and France extend her jurisdiction over the west bank of the Rhine—an object long in contemplat...

RIP VAN WINKLE, M. D. An After-Dinner Prescription, BY OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES. Taken by the Massachusetts Medical Society, at their Meeting, held May 25th, 1870. canto first. Old Rip Van Winkle had a grandson, Rip, Of the paternal block a genuine chip; A lazy, sleepy, curious kind of chap; He, like his grandsire, took a mighty nap, Whereof the story I propose to tell In two brief cantos, if you listen well. The times were hard when Rip to manhood grew; They always will be when there's work to do; He tried at farming —found it rather slow — And then at teaching—what he didn't know; Then took to hanging round the tavern bars, To frequent toddies and long-nine cigars, Till Dame Van Winkle, out of patience, vexed "With preaching homilies, having for their text A mop, a broomstick—aught that might avail To point a moral or adorn a tale, Exclaimed— : T have it I Now then, Mr. V.! He's good for something—make him an M. D.! The die was cast: the joungster was content; They packed his shirts ...

Staunton iipertatar. Tuesday, July 26. 1870. Our Correspondent "Augusta." So far as we have been concerned, we have kept our columns open, as well to the friends as to the opponents of the Valley Railroad subscription. As for ourselves, we are in favor of the subscription, and think the voters of the county should endorse it. We consider it a matter of vital importance that this question should be settled now and finally. We do not understand what our correspondent proposes. He says vote down the subscription and then "canvass this important question with a view to both roads." We regret the toue and spirit of the article of "Augusta." He speaks of a set of "Rail* road sharpers" and of "something like a con spiracy among the Railroad sharpers against the best interests of the county." This lan guage is ha;sh and uncalled for, so far as our information extends. The Valley Railroad Central Committee, whose address we pub lished last week, is made up of some of the best men in the coun...

Be careful of the monkey looks, Of every head and tail. Though high in office is our stand, And pi-ous is our case, We kvould not cast a slur on those Who fill a lower place. The gaping world is fed by us, Who retail knowledge here; By feeding them we feed ourselves, Nor deem our fare too dear. Pull u...
