The Devil and the Lawyers. The* Devil came to the earth one day, And unto a court-house wended his way, Just as an attorney with very grave face, Was proceeding to argue the points in a case. Now a lawyer'his majesty never had seen, For to his-dominions none ever had been ; And he felt very curious tho reason to know, Why none had been sent to the regions below. 'Twas the fault of his agents, his majesty tho't, Why none of theso lawyers had never been caught; And for his own pleasure he had a desire, To come to tho earth and the reason inquire. Well, the lawyer who rose with visage so grave, Made out his opponent a consummate knave ; And the Devil was greatly amused, To hear the attorney so greatly abused. As soon as the speaker had come to a close, The counsel opposing then fiercely arose, And heaped such abuse on the head of the first, As made him a villian, of all men the worst. Thus they quarreled, contended, and argued so long, 'Twas hard to determine the one that was wrong; An...

Tuesday, May 9, 1871. The war in France. The siege of Paris makes but slow progress, and the accounts have assumed an air of mo notony. Again, to-day, there is no event of any special importance reported. Fort DTssy is said to be a heap of ruins, yet it is still held by the Communists, who are entrenching under a perfect hail of projectiles from the Vereail list batteries, to which they return a slow fire. The other forts of the insurgents are constant ly bombarded by the Versailles batteries, but with no results of consequence. The loss of the insurgents within the past week, in killed, wounded and prisoners, has been two thousand. General Rossel is said to have been wounded in the shoulder. Tbe Prussians have ejected the National Guards from Vincennes, and conducted them nearly to the city gates. They took possession of all their ammunition. Some uneasiness had been caused at Versailles in consequence of the permission, by tho PraetuuM, of i ions to enter Paris. The bearer of ■ fl...

"JONES." The following little story, with its moral, tho' written for tbe Macon (Ga.) Telegraph, is quite too good to be enjoyed by the farmers of Geor gia alone: I knew a man and he lived in Jones — Which Jones is a county of red hills and stones, And he lived pretty much by getting of loans, And his mules were nothing but skin and bones, And his hogs were flat as his corn-bread pones, And he had 'bout a thousand acres of land. This man—and his name was also Jones— He swore that he'd leave them old red hills and stones, For he couldn't make nothin' but yellowish cot ton, And little of that, for his fences were rotten; And what little cotton he had, that was bou'ten, And he couldn't get a living from the land. And the longer he swore the madder he got, And he rose and he walked to the stable lot, And he hallooed to Tom to come there and hitch, For to emigrate somewhere where the land was rich, And to quit raising cock-burs, thistles and sich And wasting their time on barren land. So...

Staunton .SprtatorJ Tussd^y^^^oTisYiT Eligibility to Oflice. As the season for selecting candidates for public positions approaches, the attention of the public is called through the press to the merits of a large number of estimable gentle men, without reference to the question, wheth er they are eligible or not. It is a matter of great importance that no mistakes should be made on this point. It is important to the public, that the offices should not be kept vacant by electing ineligible par ties ; and it is important to candidates that they should not subject themselves to penalties, by taking offices, which they are constitution ally incompetent to hold. An idea seems to prevail that persons dis qualified by the 14th amendment are eligible to the Legislature—indeed the judiciary commit tee of the Senate so reported. We wish it was so, but we fear it is not and that reference was not had to the Act of Congress admitting Vir ginia. That Act, approved January 26th, 1870, con tains ...

gtaftm ggyfator. Tuesday, May 23, 1871. Practical Suggestions. It will readily be admitted by every well-in formed person, that the chief source of the wealth and prosperity of New England, is her manufactures. We believe that the statistical tables will show, that New England does not produce, either bread or meat in sufficient quantities to sustain her population. Her soil is so sterile, that labor applied to agriculture is unprofitable. She, therefore, wisely turns her industry into other channels—mainly, to manufactures. She buys her food from other States, and she is, in large measure indebted to other States, for the raw material which she works up into her various fabrios. She incor porates her skill and labor, with the raw ma terial, and sells the product, at a large advance and thus gets the highest price for her labor and skill. Labor and skill are, indeed, the principal commodities she has to sell. She buys her bread from the West—her cotton from the South—her iron and co...

The Hale that stood on a Steamboat Deck. [NOT BY BRET HARTE.] The mule stood on a steamboat deck, The land he would not tread; They pulled the halter round his neck, And cracked him o'er the head. Yet firm and steadfast there he stood As though formed for to rule; A critter of heroic blood Was that there cussed mule. They cussed and swore! he would not go, Until he felt inclined; And though they showered blow on blow, He wouldn't change his mind. The deck hands to the shore then cried, "This here mule's bound to stay," And siill upon the critter's hide With lash they fired away. His master from the shore replied — "The boat's about to sail, And every other means you've tried, Suppose you twist his tail I" "It's likely that will make him land." The deck man brave though pale Approached him with his outstretched hand To twist that there mule's tail. There came a sudden kick behind! The man—oh ! whero was he? Ask of the softly blowing wind, The fishes in the sea! For a moment there was...

Tuesday, May 30, 1871. Error Corrected. We were surprised to see it anneunced in several of the Richmond papers that the Rad icals had at the recent election, carried a ma jority of tbe Common Council of Staunton. — We avail ourselves of the first opportunity to correct this misrepresentation. There was no Radical ticket before the people, and politics were in no wise involved in the contest. The election turned purely on local questions of taxation and expenditure. Politics had noth ing to do with it. We feel that this explana tion is due to our community and to the respec table gentlemen who have been misrepresented. Ministers Salaries. There is no one subject on which the people generally manifest more reprehensible negli gence, than in the payment of ministers sala ries. Congregations often call ministers to of ficiate for them, promising them a reasonable support for themselves and their families, but when pay-day comes, they are in default. Peo ple act as if they thought minis...

It Sever Pays. It never pays to fret and growl When fortune seems our foe; The better Dred will push ahead And strike the braver blow. For luck is work. And those who drink Should not lament their doom ; But yield the play, And clear the way, That better men have room. It never pays to foster pride, And squander wealth in show; For friends thus won are sure to run In times of want or woe. The noblest worth Of all the earth Are gems of heart and brain, A conscience clear, A household dear, And hands without a stain. It never pays to hate a foe, Or cater to a friend; To fawn and whine, much loss repine, To borrow or to lend. The faults of men Are fewer when Each rows his own canoe; For feuds and debts And pampered pets Unbounded mischief brew. It never pays to wreck the health In drudging after <*am: And he is sold who thinks that gold Is cheaply bought with pain. A humble lot, A cosy cot, Have tempted even kings, For station high That wealth will buy, Not of contentment brings. It...

Tuesday, June 13, 1871. A Great Mistake. Some of the papers of the North, among them the N. Y. Herald, seem to think that the South will decline to co-operate in the next Presidential election with the Democratic par ty of the North upon the basis of the plat forms recently adopted in Pennsylvania and Ohio. This is a great mistake, for, as the Richmond Enquirer says, "the South will fol low wherever the Democratic party of the North leads. It is obliged to do so. It can not act with the Republican party. It recog nizes in the Republican party the author of all its suffering and all its humiliation. It recog nizes in the Democratic party a host of friends at the North who are anxious to ameliorate our condition and to restore us to our privileges and rights in the Union. The one party is the patron and backer of the negroes of the South; the other sympathizes with and wishes to help the white race of the South. It is for the Northern Democracy, therefore, to ascertain and to determin...
