Tuesday, November 15, 1870. To the Farmers of Rockbridge. As the Farmers of Rockbridge have, by rea son of the recent destruction of bridges and injuries to tbe North River Canal, been tem porarily deprived of their natural and custom ary outlets to market, we feel warranted, on behalf of the dealers in produce and other bus iness men of Staunton, in extending to the Rockbridge farmers, a cordial invitation to vis it our town. We are persuaded that they will find it to their interest to turn their attention in this direction. We believe they will find here a market for all they have to sell, almost, if not quite as good as at Lynchburg. There arc more than 20 houses in Staunton actively engaged in the produce business. — Many of these houses have ample capital to buy all that may be offered, and to pay cash for all they purchase. They are backed also by our two Banks, each with a capital of $100,- -000, and having together an average deposit line of $250,000. These Banks are wisely ...

The Lovers. IN different moods and tenses. Sally Salter, she was a young teacher who taught, And her friend Charley Church, was a preacher, who praught! Though his enemies called him a screacher, who scraught. His heart when he saw her kept sinking and sunk. And his eye, meeting hers, began winking, and wunk; While she in her turn, fell to thinking, and thunk He hastened to woo her, and sweetly he wooed. For his love grew until to a mountain it grewed, And what he was longing to do then he doed. In secret he wanted to speak, and he spoke, To seek with his lips what his heartlong had soke, So he managed to let the truth leak and it loke. He asked her to ride to church, and they rode. They so sweetly did glide, that they both thought they glode, And they came to the place to be tied, and were tode. Then homeward he said let us drive, and they drove, And soon as they wished to arrive, they arrove; For whatever he couldn't contrive, she controve, The kiss he was dying to steal, then he ...

Spectator. Tuesday, November 22 LS7O. Suggestive Points The Baltimore Gazette says that an analysis of the votes of the States in which elections have recently been held, and a fair and impar tial estimate of the political complexion of the five States which are yet to return members to the Forty-second Congress, present some very suggestive points. First. The amended returns show that the Republican majority in the Forty-second Con gress, including both wings of that party, will not, in any event, exceed thirty-one, and may possibly, in the elections yet to come off, be re duced still more. The same returns show fur ther that the Radical wing is, numerically, much weaker than the Liberal wing and the Democrats combined, and as the control of the important questions now before the country will necessaiily pass into the hands of the strongest section of the House, the Radicals will not now be able, as heretofore, to dictate those measures of legislation by which they hoped to perpetu...

.Stamen^prtator. Tuesday, December 20,1870. The Fnture of our County. For the last forty years the people of our county have been indulging in bright dreams of a better day that was to come to them, in a material point of view. Like the children of Israel during their forty years of sojourn in the wilderness, they never lost hope. Disappoint ment after disappointment followed each other, but they continued to cherish a lively hope that, at some future day, the great highways of com merce and travel —those fruitful sources of wealth and prosperity—would eventually be made through the central portions of our coun ty. Thanks to a kind Providence and the in telligent enterprise of our people, we are now on the eve of having our wishes, in this res pect, fulfilled. Like the Israelites of old, we now stand on the banks of the Jordan and have a glimpse of the promised land. The report of Mr. Huntingdon to the recent meeting of the Stockholders of the Chesa peake & Ohio Rail Road gives ...

For the Spectator. A Requiem. BY MRS. ANNIE CHAMBERS KETCHUM. Leaves of the Autumn days, Crimson and golden, opalesque and brown, To this new grave-heap slowly rustling down, Come, with your low, low chime, And sing of her, who, Spring and Summer past, In her calm Autumn sought that shore at last, Where there is no more rime- Flowers of the Autumn days, Bright lingering roses, asters white as snow, And purple violets, on the winds that go Sighing their sad. sad lays, Tell, with your sweet breath, how her spirit fair Through life's declining kept its fragrance rare Fresher amid decays. Birds of the Autumn eves, Warbling your last song ere ye plume your wing For milder climates, stay awhile and sing "Where the lone willow grieves; Tell of a nest, secure from storm and blast Where her white wing, the Shadowy Valley passed, Rests under Heavenly Eaves. Stars of the Autumn night, Crowned warders on the ramparts of the skies, With your bright lances, holy mysteries Upon her grave-stone wri...
