"It'll Nebber Come No Mo." The following from the pen of Mrs. F. G. De Fontaine of Charleston, S. C, will touch a tender chord in every Southern heart: I'se been a'waitin' long for de good ole time Dat'll nebber come no mo'; When I used to rock an' work an' sing In de little cabin do. My Sam was dar wid his fiddle, Po' Sam: he's gone—done dead! Dead for de want ob food an' clothes An' de shelter ober-head.

Tuesday, December 12,1871. Gov. Gilbert C. Walker's Message. As soon as both houses of tho General Assembly were organized on Wednesday last, the annual message of Gov. Walker was presented and read. It is a very long document and would occupy about nine columns of space in the Spectator. As it is too long to publish in full, we give an abstract of it which will enable our readers to form a correct idea of its character and the views it maintains. It is a very elaborate document, and treats at length of the economy of the State, its finances, social, political and material condition. In referring to the general condition of the State Union, he says: since its restoration to its rights within the •'We have now the benefit of nearly two years' experience under the new order of things originating under the almost unanimous action of the people in 1869.

Tuesday, December 19 t 1871. Ini migration Convention. An immigration convention composed of gentlemen representing all of the State, assembled at the Exchange Hotel, in Richmond, on Tuesday last, the 12th inst. The meeting was called to order by J. H. Cochran, Esq., of Albemarle, on whose motion Mr. Chas. W. Button, of Lynchburg, was called to the chair, who said that the meeting had been called to discuss a matter of paramount interest to Virginia. He believed that the time was propitious, and thought that great good might result from it. He thought it a great mistake to think that paupers would immigrate to Virginia, but that the accessions to our population would be of a character that would result in great good. On motion of Maj. G. W. Grice, of Portsmouth, a committee of five was appointed on permanent organization. The Chair appointed the following gentlemen : Maj. G. W. Grice, of Portsmouth; Judge Asa D. Dickinson, of Prince Edward ; Col. VV. D. Hart, of Albemarle : Maj. Gre...

Domestic Felicity. The brown curls fell in their wondrous grace, As the blue eyes met his own— Shading the light of the beautiful face With a glory all her own. The moonlight stole with a loving gleam On the delicate upturned brow, And swept with its pure mysterious beam, Adown the soft arm's dazzling snow. One white hand lay on his loving breast, And one 'neath the lovely head ; While the dimpled cheek to his heart was press d And parted the lips' warm red. On his shoulder floated the waving hair, Shading the beautiful brow ; And over all rested the moonlight fair, With its quivering, silvery glow. And he clasped fcer warm in his loving hold, As he spake in his yearning tone : "What is it my darling would have me told ; Little wife, my darling, my own?" The blue eyes gleamed with a loving thrill. And a look 80 pure and sweet; "Our dinner to-morrow ; oh. dear me, Bill! Has the butcher-boy brought up the meat?" When the sunbeams came with a loving thrill, And the air grew warm and sw...

itamttim Tuesday, December 26,187JL Christmas. Christmas is here with all its joyful greetings, hilarious merriments, congratulatory ejaculations and social enjoyments. To one and all we wish a merry, happy time. But especially for our paying subscribers do we bespeak a joyous, merry Christmas; for, having paid the printer, they can buy their Christmas presents with a clear conscience and a light heart; and, so long as they bear that interesting relation to us, may they remain in the enjoyment of peace, plenty and prosperity, and may everything conduce to their comfort, contentment and happiness. This also is the time when Santa Claus, leaving the seclusion of his ice-bound home, flits rapidly round the earth, and from his ponderous sack draws forth the toys and Christmas "goodies" with which he fills the gaping stockings that hang around the hearth.

Tuesday, January 2,1872. A few Words of Encouragement. For the last six months the croakers have been busily at work in Virginia. They have represented the old State as down trodden— tax ridden—debt burthened—and oppressed by every ill that flesh is heir to. By their dismal representations they have spread gloom over the land, and greatly depressed the spirits of our people. They represent that labour is high—the products of agriculture low; that trade is languishing—manufactures stagnant, and that there is no money in the country. These morose Jeremdas have not been without their effect on the people. Hence we see many long faces and our Legislature has been frightened out of all propriety. With nearly two millions of dollars in the treasury own wise law-givers have decided that they are unable to pay the interest on the public debt, which was contracted in building the Railroads and Canals, which are the main sources of the little property that is left to us. We think it time that...

What next ? —. • ■ Additional Thoughts on Financial.Matters. In our last number we offered some "words of encouragement" to our readers, and sought to show that our old State was not reduced to such desperate straits as the "croakers" would have us believe. We propose now to offer some additional thoughts on the subject of finance. The assessed value of tire real and persona l property of Virginia, is about three hundred and sixty millions of dollars. The portion of the debt of the present State, is about thirtysix millions of dollars. In other words, the present State of Virginia owes a debt, equal to about one-tenth of its property.

A Church Ooiru. Bell. A dainty little bonnet, The sweetest marabout, A sea of tawny wavelets O'er forehead white as snow, A "brace of sparkling sapphires, Two cheeks of rosy dye, A pair of lips of ruby And a fascinating sigh. Thinkest thou she goes to worship ? Ah 1 it is difficult to tell, But it's plain both saints and sinners Worship that Sabbath belle. A tightly-fitting bodice, Costume all brocaded, Short petticoats with flounces, In endless colors braided, Enamelled shoes with buckles, Such as Frenchmen vend, With lofty, taper heel-taps, To give a Grecian bend. Thinkest thou it's for God's glory She dresses out so well ? Or does she want some saint or sinner To love tho Sabbath belle ? ... There is in the following brief poem a charming picture of domestic life, heightened by an allusion to a well-known incident in the life of Washington: "Dear father, look up, Restrain the hiccup, And tell me what aileth ma's forehead It's all .lack and blue, Oh! what could she do To cause a c...
