TWO. BT T. B. ALDRICH. Last night I dreamed that there were two Lithe, golden-haired girls like you— And loved them both. "What could Ido ? They both had just this wavy hair. This pretty dress, looped here and there, Your tone of voice, laugh, gesture, air. One drew me with your modest eyes, The other with your sweet replies; And both were full of sorceries. And so alike I could not guess,' When one had gone, which loveliness Lingered to deepen my distress. But her I loved, and nothing loth "Whichever one! and pledged my troth, And so was true and false to both. Awaking, it was well to find Nature had not, howe'er inclined, Made two of your distract'ng kind ! Atlantic Monthly for October HER ANSWER. 'Tis strange that you in dreams should see, Two "golden-haired girls like" me— I look on suspiciously. I'm not so sure you dreamt at all; You leaned so heavy 'gainst the wall, I really waß afraid you'd fall. I waited long your coming in. You came. I asked you where you'd been, You answer...

Tuesday, Octobber 10. 1871. Plan of Conservative Organization. In compliance with the wishes of the Con servatives of this State, who felt that the re organization of their party was not only desi rable, but absolutely necessary, the Conserva tive State Central Committee called a State Convention of the party to assemble in Rich mond on the 30th day of August last. In pur suance of that official call, delegates duly elected from tbe counties and cities of the State, met in Convention at the time and place designated. The Convention represented the character, intelligence and patriotism of the Conservative party of the State. The chief object of their assembling was to agree upon that plan of organization which would be, in the opinion of that body, the most efficient in enabling the Conservatives to "oppose and defeat the Radical party." After a full interchange of views and calm deliberation, on the second day of their ses sion, the members of the Convention unani mously adopted th...

The Unfinished Prayer. "Now I lay me"—"Say it, darling/ "Lay me," lisps the tiny lips Of my daughter, kneeling, bending O'er her folded finger-tips. "Down to sleep"—"To sleep," she murmured, And the curly bead drooped low ; "I pray the Lord"—l gently added, "You can say it all, 1 know." "Pray the Lord"—the words came faintly, Fainter still—"My soul to keep;" Then the tired head fairly nodded, And the child was fast asleep. But the dewy eyes half opened, When I clasped her to my breast. And the dear voice softly whispered, "Mamma, God knows all the rest" O, the trusting, sweet confiding Of the child heart! Would that I Thus might trust my Heavenly Father, He who hears my feeblest cry. _—_3—MB—_—i»■___»■—■——■—_■——MM— Lunch for Humorists. ■ . . "What a little child 1" said a friend.

gtonrotorc ggytatgr. Tuesday, Octobber 17. 1871. Reduction of Freights—Business in Staun ton. We are gratified to learn that the Chesa peake & Ohio R R has made a material re duction in freights on the principal exports from this county. We have not seen the new tariff, and therefore cannot give details. We understand, however, that the cost of trans porting a barrel of flour to Richmond is re duced ten cents, or about 16 per cent, and on a bushel of wheat 5 cents. This is a matter of some interest to our farmers, and will add largely to the trade of our town, as it will ena ble our produce dealers to offer better prices to the producers. We desire to call the particular attention of our friends in Rockingham and Rockbridge to this important fact. We think we can safely promise that, if they will bring the products of their farms to Staunton, they will get the highest price that the foreign markets will jus tify. Our merchants are enterprising and lib- eral, and are disposed to ...

The Fourth Annual Exhibition of the "Au gusta County Fair" was held at the Fair Grounds near this place, on Tuesday, Wednes day and Thursday of last week, the 17th, 18th and 19th instant The weather was delightful during the Fair, being clear and bright and of just the proper temperature for comfort, and the rain of Mon day had the effect of preventing dust. The Fair was a success beyond the anticipations of the most hopeful and sanguine. There was a marked improvement over former exhibitions in all the various departments, showing that the citizens of this and surrounding counties are becoming more and more interested in the Fair, aud giving hopeful assurance that each succeeding exhibition will surpass tbe prece ding. This year no sensaional announcements were made to attract a crowd and no great efforts of any kind, having that end in view, were made, yet the attendance was as good as on any form er occasion.

Tuesday, October 31, 1871. Conservative and Republican Parties. Strength is Weakness and Weakness is Strength. However paradoxical it may appear, yet of political parties it is true, that their strength may be weakness, and their weakness strength. The Conservative and Republican parties of this State at Ihis time furnish illustr?_iions of the truth of the propositions just enunciated. The superiority of the Conservative over that of the Republican party i n numbers, in telligence and interest in __c property of State, constitutes its weakness j n the present canvass, and tbe inferiority f i n the respects mentioned, of the Republi _an party constitutes its strength. The fact t _ a t the Conservative party is com posed a/most wholly of white men who have a d'.Vect interest in questions of public policy, and who have sufficient intelligence to form de cided opinions in reference to them, makes it impossible for it to have unanimity of opinion ; lor persons who think for themselves wi...
