Tuesday, August 2,1870. War News from Europe. In a skirmish on the outposts on Thursday last, in which a few are reported killed and wounded, the French retired after a few rounds of cannon and musketry. A general movement of the Prussian forces in front of the French line has commenced. It is evident that decisive operations are near at hand. Troops are pushing on to Mayence from all directions. The news that the Prussians are moving causes a great hurry in French operations. There is little doubt that the main body will strike through Rhenish-Bavaria and an advance of the Prussians on the left is expected. The following is the proclamation of the Emperor to the army on assuming command in person : "Soldiers,—l come to take my place at your head to defend the honor and soil of our country, You go to combat against one of the best armed of European countries ; but other countries as valiant as this have not been able to resist your valor. It will be the same to-day — The war which n...

TO MY HAT. Friends must part, and so must we Though the parting sad will be, Old hat Thou my old and well-tried friend Canst no more my steps attend, Or from harm my head defend, Old hat. We have many and many a day, Close companions, kept our way; Whether sad, or whether gay, Old bat Thou to me hath surely been Dearest hat these eyes have seen. We have traveled long together, Seen all kinds of wind and weather, Old hat. Rain and hail, and awful blow 3, Sunshine, storm and driving snows, All the changes nature knows, - - All that, Old hat. You and I have seen, and more, Smce the time when out of store, 1 did wear thee big with pride; On my head, thou tipped, didst ride, Hat ot all the hats beside, Old hat. Now thy form is surely battered. And thy sides are sorely tattered, And thy brim is sorely shattered, Old hat And thou lookest all so dusty, And thou smallest all so musty, That I say farewell, Old hat, Farewell.

Taesda y, August 16, 1870. A Word to Anti-Subscription Voters. As we stated last week, the defeat of the subscription by this county of $300,000 to the capital stock of the Valley R. R Company was due chiefly to the fact that the impression was successfully made in the Eastern portion of the county that the Shenandoah Valley R. R. would be built through that part of the county without cost to the citizens along its line. Though this was the chief cause of the defeat of the subscription to tbe Valley Road, it was not due wholly to that cause. Many in the county voted against the subscription because th«y believed that the town was allowed to vote on the question for the purpose of carrying the subscription though a majority in the county might vote against it—that it was done on the theory that the affing|riv# majority in the town would exceed thlfnegative majority in the county, and thus tbe subscription would be carried. Taking this view of the subject, and wishing to rebuke what t...

A Lover's Secret 1 love my love, but not because She's beautiful or young; For, truth to say, she's many flaws, Much better left unsung. I cannot praise her eyes—she squints ! Her nose—it is a snub ! Her hair—good sooth, has many tints; Her teeth—aye, there's the rub! She is not winning in her ways, Or charming in her chat; I can't her form or figure praise, She's forty-two and fat. Her ankies—what can you expect ? She walks a little lame; Her hearing has a slight defect— Her grammar has the same. I do not love my love, you see, For figure or for face; She's old and ugly as can be, And blessed with ne'sr a grace. 'Tis not for outward charms or show, But on far different grounds I love her—for she has I know Some twenty thousand pounds ! Lunch for Humorists. The sweetest of strains—trying to lift a pretty girl ou a horse. An lowa girl wants to die, but she prefers to be smothered with kisses. It is said that the connecting link between the animal and the vegetable is hash. Some one i...

Staunton SfyedatarJ Tuesday, August 23,1870. France and Prussia. During the past week torrents of blood have been shed in France. Thousands of French and Prussian so'diers have fallen ; and weeping widows and wailing orphans are numbered by tens of thousands. We have been unable to find a justifiable cause for this immense slaughter Of human beings, and humanicy is appalled at what seems to be such wicked and wanton destruction of human life. It is astonishing to witness the readiness with which the masses of the people offer themselves as sacrificial victims to the insatiate Moloch of human ambition—the many the willing victims of the mad ambition of the few. The despatches in reference to the battles of the past week are so ambiguous and contradictory, that it is impossible to form any definite idea of what has been done, or to learn the injuries inflicted and the losses sustained by the armies, respectively, of France and Prussia. — It seems, however, that the tide of Prussian su...

.Stanton J&prtator. Tuesday, August 30.1870. France and Prussia. Since our last issue, there have been no official despatches from either of the contending powers, and such as have been published are of a vague and unreliable character, to which not much importance should be attached. It seems that no great battle was fought during the past week. The Paris Figaro, upon information received from a person who reached Paris on Wednesday night, from Epernay, publishes a report of a battle which is said to have occurred between Verdun and Chalons, on that day, in which the Prussians were defeated. The informant states that "groups of Prussian stragglers, cavalry and infantry, were continually coming into Chalons." The combat is said to have commenced in the morning at three o'clock, and the news reached Chalons and Epernay at about three in the afternoon. Nothing definite is stated as to the number of men engaged, but according to rumor "the entire army of Prince Charles was ...

Two Little Kittens. Two little kittens, one stormy night. Began to quarrel, and then to fight, One had a mouse, the other had none, And that was tho way the quarrel began. "I'll have that mouse," said the biggor cat "You'll ha*e that mouse—we'll see about that!'' "I will h.ive that mouse," said tbe larger ;:.„ "You shan't have that mouse !'' said the little one. I told you before 'twas a stormy night When"these two kittens began to fight, Tho old woman seized her sweeping broom And swept the two kittens right out ofthe room. The ground was covered with frost and snow, And tho two little kitten•> had nowhere to go, So they laid them down on the mat at the door, While the old woman finished sweeping the floor. Then they crept in as quiet as mice, All wet with snow and cold as ice, For they it was better that stormy night To lie down and sleep than to quarrel and fight. . . * It is said that a Milwaukee sausage-maker, has tbe following placarded over his counter : "Oh the pu...
