A RIDDLE. Though water disowns me, I'm found in the sea; In the forest reside, yet form part of no tree; I am past, lam present, I'm base, yet sublime, But not in eternity, neither in time ; Although both with angels and mortals I'm found, I exist not in Heaven nor on earthly ground; Though not in the garden, I'm known to repose In the midst of the pansy, the cowslip, and the rose; In sunshine, in summer, in spring I rejoice; Though in frost, and in snow, I am never in ice ; I'm the prop of the soldier, as most of you know; I alike to the ladies great courtesy show; I fly with the breezes, but not with the gale; At the base of all mountains, but not in ihe vale; I'm discovered in pleasure, and revel in bliss; In silence I reign, and I dwell in each kiss; In foolishness, wisdom, and scorn I've a place With the huntsman I frequently follow the chase; In demand by both sexes, selected with care ; With the sailor and artist I'm found, I declare ; I'm pleasant, yet silent, and sorrowful,...

.itamrtim _§prtator. Tuesday, March 28, 1871. Good Tide-ings for Richmond and Virginia. We have been gratified to learn from a source worthy of entire confidence, that it is the opinion of the U. S. officers who are engaged in clearing out the obstructions to navigation in the James River below Richmond, that, by an expenditure of less than half a million of dollars, it is practicable to obtain a cleardepth of 18 feet of water, at low tide.— As the tide rises at Richmond about four feet, this will give 22 feet of water at high tide. If this should be accomplished, it will well justify the Chesapeake & Ohio R. R. Company in making Richmond its eastern terminus, not only for freights intended to be sent coast wise, but for merchandize which is intended for shipment to foreign ports. Twentytwo feet is enough to float large ocean-steamers with full freights. We believe that the harbors of Baltimore and Charleston have not much more than 16 feet of water at low tide, and we d...

The Little Girl Around the Corner. A SONG— BY MARK MOXLET. ~_T I know a maid, of habits staid, And when she on mo gazes, I'm happy as a humming bird Among the blooming daisies; Her heart is light, her eyes are bright, Eer name is Susie Homer, And Susie is the little girl "Who lives around the corner. 11. She's just as pure as morning dew Upon a fresh-blown flower, Her eyes as bright as stars of night, Or beacon in a tower; Her hair like jet—l'll ne'er forget How much it did adorn her, I'll ne'er forget my little pet, The girl around the corner. 111. When first we met, I'll ne'er forget How badly I was smitten, I thought that I should surely die If she gave me the mitten; She smiled so sweet, and dressed so neat, My heart was soon a-goner, And all because one night I met The girl around the corner. IV. And to the maid sweet words I 6aid— Said them softly in her ear, Though what they were I quite forget, But she answered, "Yes, my dear!" And now for life she is my wife, This pretty Su...

Tuesday, April __, 1871. Scene at Adjournment—Augusta Delegation. On Friday last, the Legislature adjourned sine die. At the adjournment, that body presented an affecting spectacle. Those who had been, during the session, "pitching into" each other with remarkable vim, were melted to tears when the time for separation arrived. — Then they acted like lovers who had quarreled, then relented, then kissed, then embraced, and then,—sad fate,—were forced to separate, probably never, never to meet again. It was a spectacle that could not fail to move the most obdurate heart. Whether their constituents will allow them to gratify their manifest desire to meet again, is, we apprehend, as to many of them, quite problematical. This is the tender point, at which so much womanly tenderness was mutually tendered. This accounts for the fact that the Augusta delegation shed not a tear—their eyes remaining as dry as powder-horns in the midst of the tearful shower. To serve the people in the character...

[The following beautiful poem, composed by Professor Morgan H. Looney, of Fayetteville, Arkansas, immediately after the death of Gen. Robert E. Lee, we copy from the Corner Stone, a paper published in New York city: BOBERT EDWARD LEE. Out on the tremulous wire, Afar on the wings of the wind, On iron steeds breathing with fire, On steamships that leave earth behind, Away over mainland and ocean, To the farthermost civilized shore, The news has filled earth with emotion — The news that Lee is no more. And now, Southern youth and sweet maiden, Go twine me a wreath for the brave; Bring roses, bring hyacinths laden With perfume to garland his grave. And while your grief swells like a billow, O come and tread softly with me, And let us hang wreaths on the willow That droops o'er the dust of our Lee. Ye States that so long have been voiceless And crownless in national woe, "While the tear-drops are gushing as noiseless, Adown Southern cheeks they now flow. Come out from defeat and disaster...

Tuesday, April 18, 1871. Lucien Beard the Horse-Thief. Lucien Beard, the notorious Horse-thief, who, as the head of a band of horse-thieves, has been stealing horses on a large scale for some time, having been recently arrested and sentenced to 18 years' confinement in the penitentiary by the Court in Cumberland county, was, on Friday last, taken to Richmond and confined in the city jail for safc-keepiDg till an application far a be decided up-"* on in the Supreme Co«rt of Appeals. The laws' delay and the uncertainty of punishment tend to encourage horse-thieves, and the result is, that they are becoming better organized and more numerous. That crime throughout the country is on the increase, and unless the Courts inflict the punishment deserved, there will be no security for property in horse-flesh. .♦. __ Roanoke College.

Drifting. Come, my darling, let us float In the moonlight down the river— "We will dream a fairy boat Rears us on and on for ever ! Past the rushes by the shores, Ry the gnarled and tangled willows, We will drift with idle oars O'er the silver-tinted billows. Oh, my darling, have you dreamed Of some island in the ocean. Where the tranquil waters seemed_ Never stirred by winds' commotion ? "Where the bul-biil sang all day In the meadows bright with flowers, And a strange, sweet quiet lay Over all, through sunniest hours ? I have dreamed of such an isle, In its tropic beauty lying Underneath tbe skies' warm smile, All the strokes of Time defying, There tho heart would ne'er grow old. But be young and glad forever; Of such islands poets told Long ago, but found them never. Darling, in our hearts may be Lands as fair with sun and flowers, Lying in a boundless sea, Wrapped in quiet all the hours— Love's own quiet, deep and calm, Only thrilled with birda' glad singing— "Wi h an air of swe...

Tuesday, April 25, 1871. The Civil War in France. With the terrible fighting around Paris during the past week, and the continued discomfiture of the communists, has come increasing commotion among the people and desperation among the governing elements in the city.— Another revolution is believed to be imminent, the commune and the central committee having come in direct conflict, which has resulted in the arrest of the latter, charged with negotiating with M. Thiers for the betrayal of Paris. Upon this comes the indignation of the national guard, and they threaten to arrest the commune unless the committee is released. The Versailles army continues active operations on the left bank of the Seine, and is concentrating at Puteaux and Courbevoie, on the northwest of Paris, apparently with the intention of attacking Levallois and Villers. Dombrowski, tbe commander of the communist forces, is discouraged at the inefficiency of bis officers, but hope, with the aid of gunboats, which wil...

KA-FOOZLE-UM. In ancient days there lived a Turk, A horrid beast within the East, Who did the Prophet's holy work, As Baba of Jerusalem. He had a daughter, sweet and smirk, Complexion fair, and dark blue hair, With naught about her like a Turk. Oh Ka-tbole-um 1 Ka-foozle-um ! Ka-foozle-um, Oh Ka-foozle-um ! the daughter of the Baba. A youth resided near to she; His name was Sam, a perfect lamb ; Ho was of ancient pedigree, And came from old Methusalem. He drove a trade, and prospered well, In skins of cats and ancient hats ; And ringing at the Baba's bell, He saw and loved Ka-foozlo-um. If Sam had been a Mussulman, He might have sold the Baba old, And with a verse of Alcoran Have managed to bamboozle him; But, oh dear no ! he tried tc scheme, Passed one night late the area gate, And stole up to the Turk's hareem, To carry off Ka-foozle-um. Tho Baba was about to smoke— His slaves rushed in with horrid din, "Maslialla! dogs your house have broke ; Come down, my lord, and toozle em?" T...

Staunton ggptator. Tuesday, May 2, 1871. The French War 7 Accounts of the progress of the siege of Paris, seem to show that the city is completely invested ; that the military operations are being conducted with persevering activity, and that the bombardment of the city and its forts is prosecuted with unceasing vigor. In an address to the Assembly on Thursday, M. Thiers spoke of the painful character of the situation and of the continued bloodshed, and also alluded in high terms of eulogy to the army and its commander. He Eaid that the investment of Paris was complete, and active operations commenced, Fort DTssy silenced and Moulinceaux captured. It was consoling to know that the denouement was near. In conclusion, he said that the insurgents were isolated, and all France was with tbe Government io its efforts to combine unity with liberty. The Communists claim a series of successes, that in a reconnoissancc towards Bagneaux they had driven the Versaillists before them; that three ...
