Johnny and Ms Dog. Johnny had a little dog, With hair as black as jet, And every place that Johnny went, The purp went too, you bet. He followed him to school one day, That happened to be near, But when the teacher booted him, "He walked off on his ear.*' Returning home he met a cow, And at the cow did fiy; She tossed him up five hundred feet— "And how is that for high ?" The poor beast ne'er came down again, And John was left a mourner; For the purp was left in the steeple top "Of the little church 'round the corner." When Johnny heard his darling's fate, A word he scarcely said, But toddled home and weeping cried, "Now put me in my little bed/ Isunch for Humorists. ■ . ■ In regard to newspapers, young ladies prefer those which make the most bustle.

Tuesday, November 7,1871. The Election. As this issue is published on the day of the election, and but comparatively few of our readers will see it before their votes will be cast, we feel it is almost wholly useless, at this late hour, to publish articles with the view 0* influencing their action in reference to the elec tion. As the Republicans— availing themselves of the opposition which exists in the county against the ticket nominated by the Conven tion (as exhibited by the disposition to vote for Persons not nominated and who are not candi dates)-have boldly put a ticket in the field we would urge upon the Conservatives the ne cessity of getting all Conservative voters to the polls. The greatest danger to the Conserva tives consists in the apathy which exists in its ranks, and the indisposition on the part of many to take part in the election. The chief danger of the success tfi'' publican ticket, consists in t>- ' -* me Be " Conservatives are die- -* fact that many on the ...

His Wife's Mother. He stood on his head on the wild sea-shore, And danced on his hands a jig; In all his emotions, as never before, A madly hilarious grig. And why ? In that vessel which left the bay His mother-in-law had sailed To a tropical country some distance away, Where tigers and serpents prevailed. He knew she had gone to recruit her health And doctor her rasping cough, But wagered himself a profusion of wealth That something would carry her offl Oh, now he might look for a quiet life, And even be happy yet, Though owning no end of neuralgical wife, And up to his collar in debt ; For she of the specs and curled false front, And black alpaca robe, Must pick out a sailor to suffer the brunt Of her next daily trial of Job. Ho watched while the vessel cut the sea, And bumpishly upped and downed, And thought if already she qualmish could be He'd consider the edifice crowned! He'd borne the old lady through thick and thin Till she'd lectured him out of breath; And now, as he gazed...

Staunton S gdator. Tuesday, November 14,1871. Election—Gratifying Result. The result of the election in this county, is gratifying to those who approved the plan of organization of the Conservative party and who advocated the holding of a convention, in accordance with that plan, to make nomina tions of candidates for the Legislature, for it has vindicated the wisdom of that policy. If the policy advocated by those who denounced the organization of the Conservative party, and opposed the holding of a contention, had beeir adopted, there is but Uule doubt that there would have been a. many as a dozen Conserva tive candidate,, and the probability is that the Republicans would have elected their ticket, for then there would not have been any recog nized Conservative Ticket upon which the Con servatives could have been rallied, for there would have existed no party obligations to vote for one in preference to another. Personal preferences would have controlled the votes, which might hav...

The motion for an injunction against Mahone and others on behalf of Tyson, the owner of 55 shares in the Va. and Tennessee Railroad was overruled by the U. S. Circuit Court at Lynchburg on Saturday last, Judges Bond and Rives presiding. The refusal of an injunction does not affect the final hearing of the cause, which will be matured at the next term of the court, in March next.

Woman's Bights. In the good time coming, when the women have their way, And in business, and in politics, assume their rightful sway; When each strong-minded matron, changes pla ces with her mate, And the fathers rock the cradles, while the moth ers rock the State, . When sisters, wives and daughters, upon their "rights" shall seize, In all our daily papers will be notices like these : "By order of her honor. Mayor Angelina Bright, The Common Council in their rooms a meeting hold to-night. Also the street commissioner, Mrs. Pollyanthus Brown, Petitions and remonstrances will hear from all the town."

Stattow ggfftator. Tuesday, November 28,1871. Political. It is conceded, on all hands, that the Demo crats and Conservatives of the United States are now in a very embarrassing condition. While it is believed that those who are dissatisfied with the course of the present administration and wish to see a chaDge, out-number those who sustain the powers that be, there is great reason to fear that, from the want of unity and concert of action, they will fail to accomplish their object. The most feasible means of getting rid of this difficulty is, it seems to us, by a consulta tion, in Washington this winter, of leading men from all parts of the country. The recom mendations of a large body of representative men would have great weight with the people of all sections. Let us, then, have such a con ference unless some one can suggest a better mode of procedure. .-#.. The Drift of Popular Sentiment. We have been at the pains lately, says the Baltimore Sun, to collect and publish various ex...

The Poet and the Proof-Reader. Ah! here it is I I'm famous now An author and a poet I It really is in print! Ye gods ! How proud I' 11 be to snow it! And gentle Anna! What a thrill Will animate her breast, To read these ardent lines and know To whom they are addressed. Why, bless my soul I here's something strange What can the paper mean, By talking of the graceful brooks That gander o'er the green ? And here's a t instead of r, Which makes it tippling rill; We'll seek the shad, instead of shade, And hell, instead of hill. The look so—what? I recollect, 'Twas sweet, and then 'twas kind. And now to think, the stupid fool For bland has printed blind? Was ever such provoking work ? 'Tis curious, by-the-by, How anything is rendered blind By giving it an eye. Hast thou no tears ? the t's left out, Hast thou no ears, instead; I hope that thou art dear, is put, I nope that thou art dead. Who ever saw in such a space So many blunders crammed? Those gentle eyes be damned! The color of the ro...

Tuesday, December 5, 1871. A Monumental University. At the meeting last week of the Trustees of the Washington and Lee University a memo rial was presented, signed by several hundred prominent citizens of Alabama, asking the Board to adopt the proposition, urged in the address of Hon. J. W. Taylor last June, to convert Washington and Lee University into a Monumental University to honor the memory of Gen. R. E. Lee. The Memorialists pro pose for this purpose to raise a sum not less than $500,000, by the first of January, 1876, as the minimum Endowment, and when this is raised, the name of "The Lee Monumental University" to be adopted, and the name of "Washington College to be retained, with its present property and endowment (now near $500,000) as the central College around which the new buildings and Colleges ate to be group ed. All the funds raised in the meantime they propose to turn over as fast as procured, to the use of the present University, in trust, and to be given to it ab...
