.Sprtator. Tuesday, October 18,1870. Congressional Nominee. At the adjourned session of the Conservative Congressional Convention which assembled in Harrisonburg on Thursday last, the 13th inst, after a protracted acd exciting contest, on the eleventh ballot, Judge John T. Harris, of Bockingham, was declared to be the nomi nee, having received in the Convention a majority of the votes purporting to represent the Conservative voters of the District Had the delegates in that Convention fairly and trul. represented the sentiments of their constituents, he could not have been nominated, for it is palpably evident that he is not the choice of the District. Whether he is entitled to be so or not, is a question which we do not propose to discu-s; but we simply state what we believe to be the fact We opposed him to the last in the Convention ; but now, that he is the nominee, we do not propose to oppose him further in this canvass, and hope that he will so represent this District in Congres...

Such was the destruction that most persons came to the conclusion that it would be unwise to attempt to bold the Fair at the time appointed, for they believed it would result in a mortifying failure. The farmers, generally, supposed that the Fair would be postponed. But the President—Col. Jno. B. Baldwin— \.as not so easily discouraged.

Tuesday, November 1. 1870. European Affairs.—The Baltimore American in its summary of European news says: King William has telegraphed to Queen Augusta that Metz was surrendered on the 26 ult., to the German forces besieging it. Bazaine's army, which laid down its arms during the afternoon, numbered one hundred and fifty thousand, of whom twenty thousand were sick or wounded. The capture of the strongest position in France, outside of Paris, and the army defending it, will release from active operations the entire command of Prince Fred crick Charles, which has been occupied in the siege of Metz since the middle of August. French accounts claim that Garibaldi has won victories in the Vosges, thereby checking the advance of the German army on Lyons. The forces north of Paris which were threatening Amiens have fallen back to Laon and abandoned St. Quentin. A division of twelve thousand Prussians have occupied Dreux, twentyseven miles southwest of Paris. The positions of the army of th...

My horse's name is Betsey; She jumped and broke her head, I put her in the stable, And fed her milk and bread.

Tuesday, November 8, 1870. Lewisburg, Greenbrier Co., W. Va., 1 November 4th, 1870. } We are now here in the midst of the most happy and jubilant people we have ever seen. This state of feeling has been caused by the recent unexpected and triumphant success in the recent State election, of the Conservative party of this heretofore Radical-ridden and outrageously misruled State. These people, who have been, since the war, wearing the chains of political bondage, and have been violently gagged, and mercilessly.tyrannized over, now feel that the day of their redemption has dawned with a bright aurora presaging the early enjoyment of the blessings of liberty. Their jubilation is natural, and it makes our heart thrill with pleasure to witness their exultation at their release from the galling yoke of political bondage. Their victory is one of the most important, which has ever been won in the annals of political party contests. It secures the enfranchisement of the thousands of the most ...
