If the man's head were thus kept in a perpendicular position, he could not so readily see where to step, and would be. more apt to stumble,—so also with the ex or horse. No one in the saddle would thus tie up the head of his horse, and no one would expect a horse thus tied up to win a race. Nor would any one think it an advantage to put check-reins on oxen.

To the Editor of the State Journal : Our usual spring election for town officers came off on the -2;. d, with results not unfa vorable to the Republican party. In the town of Hall's Church the Republican ticket was elected without opposition. In tho adjoining town of Providence, Shermau (Rep.) was elected supervisor by one majo rity; Hauxhnrst (Rep.) was elected town clerk, and Konyon (Rep.) was elected col lector. Not a single Republican here will vote for Greclev under any consideration. The "departure" of Mr. Greeley from the Republican parly will not, l think, have any appreciable effect upon the Republican party in Virginia. It would not be difficult to name ten Democrats who will vote for Grant to one Republican who will not vote for Greeley. The people known quite as well as any one can tell them, that tho cause of (ireel...

They see that it is not well tor their sons to become dissipated, or convenient cither to pay for the sad results of the work of liquor on other people's sons. Our taxes go in great measure to the support of prisons, asyl umns, poor-houses, etc., for which without the use of liquor there would be small need. Licenses are granted by our courts for the mere asking, and even the plain require ments of law are often baldly evaded. Our new license law is an ungrammatical, illy drawn instrument, of which the meaning is not at all clear, and whose author may con consider himself happy that he is not in the Tribune establishment, for 11.

(Evening State gmttnal. SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 1, 1872. BY LOTTIE BROWN. It wafc a bitter night. The wind blew a hurricane, and brought the snow and sleet up in showers against the plate glass win dows that lighted the cozy drawing-room in a grand hoyse. It even penetrated through the heavy folds of damask, and sent a shiver over the robust frame of the old man, who basked in his elegantly up holstered arm-chair before the rosy sea coal fire. He shrugged his shoulders, rubbed his soft hands briskly together, and said, half "Ugh! what a night! It turns my blood to ice, even in this warn', room. What must it be out in the street?" There came a sharp ring at the door just then, and he turned to know who was the intruder. A servant entered, bearing a square par cel in her hand, which she quietly deposited on the table, saying, "for you, sir," and then left the old man alone. "For me! Well who on earth has opened their hearts wide enough to find a place for me?" said Adam Hartford, as he...

In looking over the "Farmer's Rigister," of dale .!.*> years ago, I sec it stated and well vouched for, that Mr. Mcggison, Albe marle county, Virginia, raised HO bushels good .helled corn on one acre of land.
