Tuesday, September 6,1870. FRANCE AffD PRUSSIA. Surrender of Napoleon and MacMahcn. The following summary of the despatches in reference to the war between France and Prus sia, we copy from the Baltimore Gazette of Sat urday last: A despatoh from Paris at midnight of the Ist contains a statement made public by the Ministry regarding the late battles on the Meuse on Tuesday and Wednesday. They admit a retrograde movement on the part of their army the first day; that they suffered sensible losses, but inflicted heavy damage on the Prutsians.— They (the Prussians), it is added, burned the town of Mouzon and killed most of the inhab itants, and the next day, Wednesday, alternate advances and retreats were made by both sides. The Prussians, after several unsuccessful at tempts, at last succeeded in placing themselves on the north side of the Meuse. On the morn ing of this day MacMahon crossed the Meuse at Mouzon. The despatch from King William to the Queen of the Ist, three o'clock P. M....

War News in the Country. Here on a sultry summer's eve, Three thousand miles across the ocean, The village statesmen tell the news, And every loafer gives his notion. The war in Europe—which'll whip ? And are the Dutch a warlike nation— And should they capture Holland, then Would that affect the situation? Squire Silvertooth declares— That every paper lies and wheedles, But he'll be durned if he believes That people go to war with needles I Then lawyer Sharp takes 'tother side- But he's rather small potater— He's only been a Justis once.

jljjedaurr. Tuesday, September 13. 1870. A Word of Cantion to the Conservatives. The coming election of Representatives to Congress is one of unprecedented importance to the Southern States. Upon its result the most vital interests of tho South depend. We think that there ia strong ground to hope that the Conservatives and Democrats may carry the next House of Representatives. But the contest will be a close one. The majority, either way, will be small. A single District may control the result and give the organiza tion to the radicals on the one hand, or the Conservatives and Democrats on the other. In view of these facts, it is of the highest im portance that tbe people of the South should make no mistake by which they may lose a single member, and thereby endanger the or ganization of the House, with the immense ad vantages that may result from it. The test-oath is general in its terms. It ap plies to every member, North and South, un less his disabilities have been removed. It i...

Childhood Land. There Is a beautiful far-off land, Lying in sunset seas: But never a ship to that magic strand Was wafted by fitful breeze. For where her radiant shores unfold, Night stretches her purple bars, And fastens it in with her gates of gold, And guards it with sentry stars. Over the fatbomlese summer skies Snowy clouds come and go; Through every valley that dreaming*lies, Musical rivers flow. Mountain, and forest, and glen, and glade, By the soft South wind fanned, Birds and blossoms that never fade, Brighten this fairy land. Every vanished, forgotten day Scatters its sunshine there; Buds unfolding that passed away, Are living more fresh and fair. Loving deeds that the hands have done— Sheaves of life's ripened grain ; Work unfinished that souls begun, Made perfect, there live again. Men have sought it for weary years; Yet nn'er to their yearning eyes The glow of the mystic sky appears, Whe*e the land of the beautiful lies.. Yet all have wandered its bright vales thro', In...

I Have Loved Thee. I have loved thee, Ellie, loved thee, I have felt my heart thine own; I have loved thee, Elbe, loved thee, Even when my hopes were flown, It was sweet —I could not help it— 'Twas delightful—but in vain, That I worshipp'd thee, my beauty- Would it might be so again. I have madly, madly loved thee, 'Till I've felt the burning stream Of my hopeless passion move me, To forget thee—my bright Dream! But thine eyes of tender darkness Haunted still my tortured heart, And I felt that in my madness, I could never from thee part. But I'm hopeless—hopeless, Ellie, And my heart its sadness feels ; O'er mv soul a melancholy, Now'in blighting power steals, And I feel I'm parting, parting, With the hopes that cheered me once : That thy face I'm losing, losing, Losing now, forever hence ! Fare thee well, then, sweet inspirer. More than all the world to me ; Could my love with thine be mated, I would ever live for thee; To thy shrine, tho' other lovers, Will their votive offerings ...

Tuesday, September 27,1870. Foreign News. The official journal in Berlin publishes notes to the Ministers of Foreign Powers in Prussia, from M. Bismarck, in which he urges the neces sity for better and more material guarantees against other attacks by France, and the need of the possession by Germany of the principal fortresses near the frontier, which arc now a perpetual menace ; that this measure will alone give peace, while France in possession of those places will always consider a truce as enabling her to choose her own time for the renewal of hostilities. The London Times learns from Berlin that Bismarck and Jules Favre were in close confer ence all day on Thursday. The former insists on a Constituent Assembly to ratify a treaty, and the latter is willing to pay the expenses of the war, to surrender a part of the fleet, and to dismantle Metz and Strasbourg, and perhaps other forts. Later advices speak of the contin uance of the conference, and draw favorable auguries for peace...

LADY FAIR. BT H. a MERIT ALE. Underneath the beech-tree sitting, With that everlasting knitting. And the soft sun shadows flitting, Through your wavy hair ; All my thoughts and plans confusing, All my resolution losing, Say, what matters in your musing, Lady Fair 1 , Oh, the charm that in your face is! All the loves and all the graces! To be clasped in your embraces Monarch's guerdon were: Not a man, I ween, who set's you But would give his life to please you, Yet'you say that lovers tease you! Lady Fair! One by one, to their undoing, Fools in plenty come a-wooing, Baffled still, but still pursuing, Tangled in the snare ; In your ever-changing smile hid, Or Deneath your sleeping eyelid, Many a heart it hath beguiled, Lady Fair! While the summer breezes fan her Gently with their leafy banner, Venus' form and Diana's manner, Doth my goodness wear; Lives the man who can discover Any secret spell to move her To the wish of mortal lover, Cold as fair ? But to see those dark eyes brighten...

Stanton JlpMtator. Tuesday, October d, 1870. HEAVY BAIN. TERRIFIC FRESHET ! Great Destruction of Property! Mills and Dwellings Destroyed ! It commenced raining here on Wednesday afternoon last, and continued, almost incessant ly, from that time till Friday. The greater part of the rain fell on Wednesday night and and Thursday morning. The freshet here was caused chiefly by the rain which fell on Wednesday night. The fall of rain within 24 consecutive hours was nine inches and thirty five hundreds of an inch. It was not a partial, but general rain, and hence all the streams in this part of the State were higher than ever before, so far as the memory of man, records, or tradition reveal. We iearn that Middle River and South River herefrom six to ten feet higher than the high est high-water marks made within the memory of the oldest inhabitant. We suppose the same was the case with North River, though, at the time of this writing, we have not heard so definitely in reference to that ri...

Twenty Years Ago. I've wandered to the village, Tom, I've sat beneath the tree, Upon the school-house play-ground That sheltered you and me; But none are left to greet me, Tom, And few are left to know That played with us upon the green Just Twenty Years Ago ! The grass is just as green, dear Tom, Bare-footed boys at play Are sporting just as we were then, With spirits just as gay; But the master sleeps upon the hill, All covered o'er with snow, Where once we used to slide, dear Tom, Just Twenty Years Ago ! My lids have long been dry, dear Tom, But tears come in my eyes; I thought of her I loved so well — Those early broken ties; I went again to the old church-yard And took some flowers to strew LTpon the graves of those we loved Just Twenty Y*ears Ago ! And some are in the church-yard laid, Some sleep beneath the sea, And few there are of all our class Excepting you and me ; And when our time shall come, dear Tom, And we are called to go, I hope they'll lay us where we played Just ...
