A Woman _ Answer to a Man's Question. Do you know you have asked for the costliest thing Ever made by the Hand above? A woman's heart and a woman's life — And a woman's wonderful love ? Do you know you have asked for this priceless thing, As a child might ask for a toy? Demanding what others have died to win, With the reckless dash of a boy? You have written my lesson of duty out — Man-like have you quastioned me ? Now stand at the bar of my woman's soul, Until I shall question thee. You may require your mutton shall always be hot, Your socks and your shirt shall be whole; I require your heart to be true as God's stars, And pure as His Heaven your soul. You require a cook for your mutton and beef, I require a far greater thing ; A seamstress you're wanting for socks and for shirts, I look for a"man and king. A kinjf for the beautiful realm called home, Anaa man that the maker, God, Shall look upon as he did on the first And say "It is very good." I am fair and young, but the rose wi...

Tuesday, June 20, 1871. Practical Views of the Situation. The Richmond Whig asserts that' 'our rights were lost by the war," and that, it is a "patent and stubborn fact that we have no rights, ex cept those the military despotism of Washing ton may dole out to us. We are constantly re minded of the fact by being called on to be grateful for tbe amazing magnanimity exercised by the merciful conquerors in granting us any liberties—even "life itself. True, they accom pany their mercies with insults and tortures, which make them rather curses than blessings. Bat these circumstances only serve to render more glaring and impressive the fact, that our rights, 60 called, as a free people, are gone;— This same misfortune has befallen many anoth er nation. In our ease we have nothing to re proach ourselves for. Against great odds, we made a gallant d.fenco for the right. We lost, and must abido the result Like other people who have lost their liberties, we must strive to make the best we can ...

One more Unfortunate. 1 saw her sitting by the door, One afternoon in Autumn ; The gleams of sunshine lingered where Her golden curls had caught 'em. The skiey radiance of her eyes Glittered with pearly showers, As when the fairies sprinkled dew, To crystalize the flowers. My heart was filled with grief to see So fair and sweet a maiden. In all that wealth of golden light. Weeping and sorrow-laden. I lingered there, unseen, to watch Her tears in anguish falling, Dreading to startle her, in midst Of sorrow so appalling. At last, I quietly approached, And stood in pity near her; Her bitter sadness made her seem More beautiful and dearer. "Tell me what troubles you V* I said; She turned her head to listen, And in the azure of her eyes 1 saw the tear drops glistan. Her glance toward me well repaid My heart its depth of feeling; And then she sadly made reply, "It's onions I am peelingf" Lunch for Humorists. —t i In dying Ruloff pst hia hand in hia pocket.

Tuesday, Junel^llß7lT Payment of Small Bills. The New Rochette Pioneer well says that the payment of small bills, such as newspaper sub scriptions, is a matter of more importance than is usually attached to it. There are not a few who, in times when business is a little de pressed, and the prospects for the future seem more than usually unsettled, will hold on to their cash in hand, tell all the collectors who wait on them with overdue bills to "call again," while the payment would not give them any serious inconvenience, and would accommodate a large and deserving class of creditors. In deed, we know nothing that in a quiet way would go so far to give animation to the mar kets throughout the country as the universal fulfillment of the obligation at the first oppor tunity. If all the little debts, for the dis charge of which the debtors have the cash ac tually in hand, were paid at once, the wheels of business would be lubricated, and a general jollity would soon prevail throughout ...

&iatmton ggytator. Tuesday, July 4,1871. A Hint to Lot-owners. In walking around the less frequented streets of our city, we have been painfully impressed by the want ol' proper neatness on tbe part of property holders. Almost every back street and allfv and unoccupied lot is overgrown with thistles a_d weeds. Now is the time that peats are tlowering to produce seed which ■ . I mot scatter itself on tbe wings of the wind into every garden and lot in the town. To obviate this evil, we venture to suggest to every lot-owner to bave all the weeds on bis premises, and in the adjacent streets and alleys carefully extirpated. The labor of doing so will be a small matter to any one, and the re sults will be, in a high degree beneficial.— The appearance of the town will be greatly im proved, and will impress straDgers much more pleasantly. Let us, then, bave a general declaration of war on the thistles of every description. Ac tive operations, by all the lot-holders for one or two hours,...

A Maid's Advertisement. I am a Maid of sweet sixteen, And folks well versed call me keen, I wish to trap some nice young man, And hold him fast, if just I can. My disposition i 3 meek and mild, I am as dutiful as any child; To have a man, I'm bound I will, But have no cash to foot the bill! If any chap with form and face, And elegance to suit my every grace, Will apply at once at my address, My charms quite quick will him impress. Understand me, I don't wish a chap That fools away time in a lady's lap: But for himself can well provide, And should the case demand it, two beside. T want a youth both shrewd and smart, Can sing a song or drive a cart, Can plow, or sow, or reap, or mow, And to a ball, or church, or elsewhere, go, If I request it. I want one quick, and strong of brain, One not often caught out in the rain; Moral young man, if you fill 'these bills,' Please apply at once at Mills. The most affectionate specimen of amatory poetry that has come to our notice" during the past...

Tuesday, July 11* 1871. An Oversight. We have often been surprised that our intel ligent Richmond cotcmporaries should mani fest so little practical interest in the proposi tion to construct a Railroad from Shad well Mills to Richmond. If we have been rightly informed, such a road would shorten the dis tance, by Railway, between those points about 30 miles. It would, moreover, furnish an out let to market for portions of Albemarle, Louisa, Fluvanna and Goochland which have cow no convenient means of access to Richmond. The Richmond papers dwell with great earn estness and ability on the necessity of air-lines to Lynchburg and Clifton Forge, but rarely bave a word to say in favor of an air-line to Charlottesville, which, in our judgment, is not only much more practicable, but more impor tant to Richmond than either of the others. The Chesapeake & Ohio Road, which is des tined, with proper management, to throw into Richmond an amount of tonnage which will give new life to the city...

r [From the Sunday Telegram.] A Bachelor's Lament. BY ONE OF THEM. Farewell, dearest, thou hast left us; Thy sad fate we now must mourn. Gone forever from our circle, From our fond embraces torn. Many years we've known and loved thee, And forget we never shall; But, alas ! now thou hast gone, and Took up with a stranger gal. In the dim and distant future, On a cold and stormy night, I imagine I can see you In a sad and awful plight. Hark! a sound, the well-known music Greets the ear, and chills tho heart. Hark 1 the serenade increases ; From your warm bed you must start. 'Tis your babe, your darling infant, Get a match and light the lamp: Something surely is the matter With the naughty little scamp. Hurry up, confound the matches, Not a single one will strike ; Blast the luck, did any body Ever, ever see the like ? Stepping softly in the darkness, Muttering blessings strong and deep; Hunting for the soothing syrup To put the little brat to sleep. First you run against the bureau, Ne...

Tuesday, July 18,1871* Battle of Boyne—Riot in New York City. The battle of Boyne in Ireland, in which the army of James II was defeated by that of William 111 was fought in IG9o—one hundred and eighty-one years ago—and yet it is the cause of bloodshed at this day in this country. James 11, in his short reign, was almost wholly employed in attempts to establish the Catholic religion and despotic power. His efforts in fa vor of popery were for some time attended with success. But having caused seven bish ops to be committed to the Tower for refusing to read a Declaration to suspend the laws a gainst popery, the passive spirit of the nation disappeared and a general indignation was roused. William, at that time Prince of Orange, who had married Mary, the eldest daughter of James, was invited over, and landed at Torbay, with an army, in order to as sume the Government. The principal nobility and officers immediately joined his standard, and James, being deserted by the people, and even...
