"It Keally Wouldn't Do.' Springtime has come and gone, my dear, Sunshine and violets blue, you know, Crocuses lifting their sleepy heads Out of their sheets of snow. Yet 1 know a blossom sweeter far Than crocuses fair, or violets are, And bright as the sunset glow. But I never dare to look in her eyes, Colored with Heaven's own hue. That wouldn't do at all, you know— . It really wouldn't do. Her hair is a golden, rippling sea, Down in its depths the sunbeams play, Beckoning, dancing, smiling there, Luring my heart away; And, oh ! her lips are the deepest red That ever addled a poor man's head Or led his wits astray. What wouldn't I give to taste the sweets Of those rose leaves wet with dew, But that wouldn't do at all, you knowIt really wouldn't do. Her gentle voice, so clear and pure, Rings out like a silver bell, And the thoughts it makes in my idle brain, I'm really afraid to tell. Her little feet kiss the ground below, And her hand is white as the whitest snow That e'er from hea...

Tuesday, August 2#*Jt#7l._ Beaver Dam and other Falls—How they were Formed—Pleasant Summer Resort, &c. Sweet Chalybeate Springs, Alleghany county, August 25th, 1871. In my letter of last week from this delightful watering place, I spoke of this beautiful valley and of the waterfalls on the stream which runs through it. It is my purpose now to speak more particularly of these interesting waterfalls. There are four or five of them on the property connected with this pleasant Summer resort. These falls range from 25 to 40 feet in height on a stream which never fails in the severest droughts, and which never freezes in the coldest weather known to this latitudej which qualities adapt it in a peculiar manner for mills and factories. The only fall which has, as yet, been utilized, is the one near the spring. At that one is located the mill which grinds the wheat, rye and corn for this neighborhood. The stream which now turns this mill, at some time in the remote past ran immed...

Jjanch for Humorists. .-»-. The day to pick your wife is Choose-day.— Weddens-day is the day to be married on. The kangaroo is indeed a curious cuss.

When is the most dangerous time to visit in the country ? When the trees are shooting and the bull-rushes out. The Washington Star thinks that a city which cannot boast of a modern Borgia evinces a fearful lack of enterprise. They reckon time out West and give dates by saying "two weeks before the last circus," or "three weeks after the last circus."

Tuesday, September 5.1871* Hampden Sydney College. We are gratified to learn that at a recent meeting of the trustees of this venerable Institution Mr. Charles Withrow of Waynesborough, was elected professor of Greek. Mr. Withrow is a gentleman of high character and fine talents and attainments, and we doubt not, m\\ fill the position with ability, and to the satisfaction of all connected with the College.— Mr. Withrow was educated at the University of Virginia, and since he completed his studies, has had a good deal of experience in teaching. We are also pleased to be informed that the prospects of Hampden Sydney for the coming session are unusually bright. Since the close of the war, in consequence of the exhaustion of the country round about it, the number of students has not much exceeded 90. But we hear, that large accessions are expected during the coming session. Hampden Sydney is located in Prince Edward county about 8 miles from Farmville, and adjacent to the Union Theologi...

Tuesday, September 12. 1871. A Word of Admonition. The State.Conservative Convention which met a fortnight ago in Richmond, did its work wisely and well. All its proceedings were marked by prudence and strong common sense. It cautiously abstained from considering any topic which was calculated to breed dissension in the conservative ranks. After adopting a platform consisting of three words, "opposition to radicalism," it turned its attention to a plan of organization, which would make that opposition effectual. That plan has been published at large in our columns, and we trust it wiil meet general approval. The Convention, having thus faithfully and discreetly discharged its duty, all that romains is for the people to do their _ with equal fidelity and patriotism. A mass meeting of the people of our county is called, to take place at the Court-house on Saturday. Matters of deep interest will come before that meeting, and we trust the people will show their appreciation of the great...

A Love Poem. Into my heart a silent look Flashed from thy careless eyes And what before was shadow, took The light of summer skies The first-born love was in thai look: The Venus rose from out tbe deep Of those inspiring eyes. My life, like some lone, solemn spot A spirit passes o'er, Grew instinct with a glory not In earth or Heaven before. Sweet trouble stirred the haunted spot, And shook the leaves of every thought Thy presence wandered o'er. My being yearned, and crept to thine, As if in times of yore Thy soul had been a part of mine, Which claimed it back once more, The very self no longer thine, But merged in that delicious life Which made ue one of yore. There bloomed beside thee forms as fair, There murmured tones as sweet, But round thee breathed the enchanted air 'Twas life and death to meet. And henceforth thou alone wert fair, And though the stars had sung for joy Thy whisper only sweet I John's wife and John were tete-a-tete; She witty was, industrious he ; Says John, "...

Tuesday, September 19,1871. The Loudoun Enterprise, in some excellent remarks, under the head of, "Secure a Home," says:—"A man with a family should own th e house in which he lives, if it be in bis power to make such an acquisition. When a workingman owns his home he feels more confident, more cheerful, and much happier in the midst of all worldly trials than he would or could feel without so substantial an anchorage, so to speak, for his purposes, aims, resolutions, affections and aspirations. Bonds bearing gold interest, and well secured, are all good in their way. But a borne is the most assuring bond to the head of a family." The Richmond Enquirer has an article recommending the State Central Committee to alter the basis of representation fixed by the recent State Convention for delegates to conventions to nominate Senators. "The committee did this very thing two or three days ago. The convention's plan was obviously unfair, because it allowed counties representation on the bas...

Little Feet. In castle halls, or cottage homes, Wherever guileless childhood roams, O, there is nothing half so sweet As busy tread of little feet. The sighing breeze, the ocean's roar, The purling rill, the organ's power, All stir the soul, but none so deep As tiny tread of little feet. When we go fprth at early morn To meet the world and Drave its scorn, Adown tbe garden walk so neat AYe see the prints of little feet. At eve, when homeward we repair, With aching limbs and brow of care, The voices ring out clear and sweet, Then comes the rush of little feet. The knives are lost, the dishes straj, The tools are spirited away, And when we go the lost to seek We take the trail of little feet. But when the angel death has come And called the flow'rets from our home, Oppressive silence reigns complete: We miss the saund of little feet. Then tools are safe, no dishes stTay, No doors go slamming all the day ; But O, 'twould give us pleasure sweet To hear again those noisy feet. Soft night...

jtotttott ggyteter. Tuesday, September 26,1871. Conservative Address. We publish in this issue the address of the Conservative State Committee to the Conservative voters of the State, and hope that none will fail to give it a careful and thoughtful perusal. It is quite an able address written in terse style. It is a calm review of the political situation, with a brief history of the outrages perpetrated upon the South by the Radical party since the war, and furnishes wise counsel which should be heeded by the Conservatives of this State. Too much apathy prevails in the Conservative party. It should be aroused to a proper sense of the danger which so im • mmently impends. Organization, vigilance and activity should be the watchwords. There should be no drones in the Conservative hive. All should be workers. As the Lynchburg Virginian well says, "great results, involving our weal or woe, depend upon the success of the Conservatives in securing the next Legislature. We would not only u...
