letting the old cat die. Not long ago I wandered near A playground in the wood, And there heard words from a youngster's lips That I never quite understood. "Now let the old cat die," he laughed, I saw him give a push, Then gaily scamper away as he spied A face peep over the bush. But what he pushed or whither he went, I could not well make out. On account ofthe thicket of bending boughs That bordered the place about. "The little villain has stoned a cat, Or hung it upon a limb, And left it to die all alone," I said ; "But I'll play the mischief with him." I forced my way through the boughs, The poor old cat to seek, And what did I find but a swinging child, With her bright hair brushing her cheek. Her hair floated to and fro, Her little red dress flashed by, But the loveliest thing of all, I thought, Was the gleam of her laughing eye. Swigging and swaying back and forth, With the rose-light in her face, She seemed like a bird any flower in one, And the forest her native place. "Ste...

ggytettrJ Tuesday, July 25, 1871. Organization of the Conservative Party. We surrender our editorial space this week to the publication of the resolutions and ad dress adopted by the State Committee of the Conservative party of this State in their meet ing in Richmond on Thursday last. It will be observed that, for the purpose of reorganizing the Conservative party of this State under pop lar sanction and approval, the State Commit tee deem it expedient to hold a Convention of the Conservative party of Virginia on the 30th of August next in the city of Richmond. We hope that every county in the State will immediately take the proper steps to be repre sented in that Convention by delegates, who, in the language of the 4th resolution, "are recommended by character and influence to the confidence and support of the people." It is of pre-eminent importance that the Conserva tives should carry the State in the elections in November next, and to accomplish this impor tant object it is abs...

Seasonable Lines. Oh I for a lodge in a garden of cucumbers; Oh! for an Iceberg or two at control; Oh! for a vale which at mid-day the dew cum bers ; Oh I for a pleasure trip up to the Pole. Oh! for a little one-story thermometer, With nothing but zeroes all ranged in a row, Oh! for a big double-barreled hydrometer, To measure this moisture that rolls from my brow. Oh I that this cold world were twenty times colder, (That's irony red hot, it seemeth to me:) Oh ! for a turn of its dreadful cold shoulder ; Oh ! what a comfort an ague would be. Oh I for a grotto to typify Heaven, Scooped in the rock under cataract vast; Oh ! for a Winter of discontent even; Oh ! for wet blankets judiciously cast. Oh ! for a chill that would be perpetual, (Or at least till the Summer is o'er:) Then the fever may come as effectual, And last until Winter is with us no more.

Tuesday, August 1,1871. Constitutional Amendment—Rate of Interest. Amendments to the State Constitution of Virginia are effected in this wise : The General Assembly first proposes an amendment, then the proposed amendment is referred to the General Assembly to be chosen at the next general election, and if agreed to by a majority of the Assembly then chosen, then it will be submitted to a vote of the peo ple, and if approved by a majority of t'ueir votes it becomes a part of the organic law of the State. It will be seen that to amend the Constitu iion by adding to or taking from it, three steps are necessary—it must be agreed to by two Legislatures (the second of which must be cho sen after the amendment has been proposed by the first) and then be approved by a majority of the voters of the State voting upon the question. The last General Assembly, by joint resolu tion, proposed to amend the Constitution by striking from it that clause which allows 12 per cent, per annum to be charg...

Forget Thee! Forget thee ! Ask the violet blue, Inyonder flowery bed, If it forgets the pearly dew That trembles on its head. Forget thee ! ask the vesper star That gilds the evening skies, If, in the blazing amplitude, It e'er forgets to rise. Forget thee ! ask the bird of flight, With rich and glossy wing, If it forgets the moorland green Of sweet and early spring. Forget thee ! ask the blushing rose That opes its petals fair. If it forgets the rain that throws Its fragrant moisture there. Forget thee ! ask the blighted heart, Bereft of every friend, If it forget the holy spot Where weeping willows bend. Forget thee! ask the mother now, With sad and tearful eyes, If she forgets her cherub's brow, So guileless in the skies. Forget thee ! ask the harping throng That fill the courts on high, If they forget to sing their song Of triumph through the sky. Forget thee I ask the child of light, Wreathed with undying flowers, If he forgets the wreathlet bright, Culled from celestial bowers...

Tuesday, August 8,1871. Good County Roads. As our readers are aware, we have, on va rious occasions, endeavored to impress upon them the great importance of having good county roads. In our opinion no better invest ment of money, and more profitable expendi ture of time and labor, could be made, than to devote it to the improvement to a proper degree of the count* roads. It would pay many fold. It would save for our farmers many dollars annually, and would add greatly to the value of their real estate. It is not our purpose now to write an article upon this sub ject, but to give our readers the benefit of the views of the Dispatch upon it as expressed in the following extract: "Nothing so much improves the appearance of a country as good roads; and, next to build ing a railroad through a section, nothing so much enhances the value of lands as good turnpikes. Our people complain that they cannot find buyers for their lands. They are obliged to hold large bodies, paying taxes upon the...

Kitty's Choice. A wealthy old farmer was Absalom Lee, He had but one daughter, the mischievous Kitty; So fair, so good, and so gentle was she, That lovers came wooing from country and city. The first and the boldest to ask for her hand Was a trimly dressed dandy, who worshiped her tin; She replied, with a smile he could well under stand, "That she'd marry no ape for the sake of nis skin!" The next was a merchant, from business retired. Rich, gouty and gruff—a presuming old sinner; Young Kitty's fair form and sweet face he ad mired, And thought to himself, "I can easily win her 1" So he showed her his palace and made a bluff bow, And said she might live there; but wickedly then Kitty told him she'd long ago made a rash vow "Not to marry a bear for the sake of his den I" A miser came next; he was fearless and bold In claiming his right to fair Kitty's affection : He said she'd not want for a home while his gold Could pay for a cabin to give her protection. Half-vexed at his boldness, ...

Next came Mrs. Johnson, who'd like very much ' I'd lend her for an hour or two, A couple of irons, a" she had on hand Some work so hurried to do.

Tuesday, August 22, 1871. Sweet Chalybeate Springs—lnteresting Valley—Fancy and Mask Bail. Sweet Chalybeate Springs, August 18th, 1871. I arrived here about 12 o'clock on the night of the 14th inst, where I found about two hundred visitors present. Since then there have been accessions daily. Of the many pleasant watering places of which the two Vir ginias can boast, this is one of the most de lightful. There is no place where the advan tages of health-restoring waters, healthful and invigorating atmosphere, romantic and beauti ful scenery, and home-like comforts, are more happily combined than at this pleasant Sum mer resort. The beautiful Valley in which the triple health-giving fountains in almost incred ible volume pour from fissures of romantic rocks, like that stream of living waters which, at the stroke of the rod of Moses, bounded from the rock in the desert, is as beautiful as the classic vale of Ttu;pe, and is deeply inter esting whether considered in reference to its beau...
