Tuesday, January 16,1872. Radical Strategy. We are rather inclined to think that the Rad icals are playing a deep game. We suspect they are setting a trap for Conservatives. And what is worse, they are likely to catch them in it. Preparatory to the last canvass for election of members of the Legislature, the Radicals held a State Convention and adopted a plat form. The broadest, and we might almost say, the only plank in that platform, was "opposi tion to the Funding bill." The contest came off, and a large majority of so-called Conservatives were elected. The Gen eral AssemUy met, and, forthwith, a large ma jority of those elected as Conservatives, went over, foot and dragoons, to the Radical platform, and have been fighting side by side, on the Funding question, with the whole body of Radicals ever since. This is certainly a great triumph to the Rad icals. Conservative policy is derided, and the Veto of the Conservative Governor is trampled under foot. The majority of the so-calle...

_. AKY RAG. A Parody. BY F. S. E. The shades of night were falling fast, As through the city streets there passed A youth who trudged through mud rain, Crying with all his might and main, "Any R-a-g-s ?" His looks were sad, his eye 3 were dull; His great big bag was nearly full; And though his strength was failing fast, He cried with voice like trumpet blast, "Any R-a-g-s?" No friend looked out with pitying eye, And blest him as he wandered by ; "Without a blessing, cold and sore, He cried aloud at every door, "Any R-a-g-s ?" "Beware 1 the Watch !" an old man said; "He's on the corner just ahead." "I'll WB'-chfull be," the youth replied, And liftimr high his voice, he cried, "Any R-a-g-s?" "Beware the watch dog's awful bite ! Beware the clangers of the night!" And as he hurried out of sight, The youth replied with all his might. "Any R-a-g-s?" A travel:: - ; n tho early morn, A being found, ragged and torn ; There in the wet and mud he lay ; His mouth was fixed, but seemed to say, "...

gtsnttttom ggytator. Tuesday, February 13,1872. War Cloud. Since the treaty of Washington between the British Government and the United States, agreeing to submit to arbitration the settlement of the claims of the latter against the former for damages inflicted by the Confederate priva teer "Alabama" and other vessels, concluded last May and ratified and exchanged on the 17th of June last, the relations between these Governments have been as peaceful and calm a3 a "painted ship upon a painted ocean." But, in the language of Byron, "the sky is chaoged, and what a change!" Some affect to discern the cloud of war dark ening the horizon, and bellicose voices are heard ia the press and legislative bodies of both countries. "Behold what a great matter a little fire kindleth." A few words of the Queen, in her address to the British Parliament, on Tuesday last, caused this unexpected commotion. In refer, ence to the Treaty of Washington, 6he said: "The arbitrators appointed, pursuant to the...

Farmer's Girls. Up in the early morning, Just at the peep of day, Straining the milk in the dairy, Turning the cows away- Sweeping the floor of the kitchen, Making the beds up stairs, _ the breakfast dishes, —V Dusting the parlor chairs. Brushing the crums from the pantry, Hunting the eggs at the barn, Cleaning the turnips for dinner, Spinning the stocking yarn— Spreading the whitening linen, Down on the bushes below, Ransacki_g every meadow Where the strawberries grow. Starching the "fixings" for Sunday, Churning the snowy cream, Rinsing the pails and strainer Down in the running stream ; Feeding the geese and turkies, Making the pumpkin pies. Jogging the little one's cradle, Driving away the flies. Grace in every motion, Music in every tone, Beauty of form and feature Thousands might covet to own— Cheeks that rival spring roses, Teeth the whitest of pearls; One of these country maids are worth A score of your city girls. • . » A poet's desperation is finely illustrated in these li...

gtamtat %j|tta tor, Tuesday, February 20^1872. The VaUey Railroad. As everything that relates to this important work is of interest to our readers, we feel it to be our duty to lay before them the following extract from the leading editorial of the Balti more Gazette, of 17th inst. We presume the Gazette speaks advisedly. We must confess to much disappointment at the tone of this article. We had supposed that the question of the early construction of the Railroad from Harrisonburg to Salem had been finally settled. But, if we rightly under stand the editorial of the Gazette, there is only "a fair probability" that it will be built— when, the writer does not say. We are gratified, however, to b'ave a more distinct assurance, that the Roa_. between Har risonburg and Staunton, will __ constructed in any event. The delay which has occurred in awarding contracts for building the Road from Har risonburg to Stau'aton, had created some ap prehension tha._ unexpected difficulties had arisen....

"Not In." She waited in the drawing-room, Good Mrs. Mabel Moore; Six flounces of a pretty lace Were on the dress she wore; Upon her _osom a French rose, And on her cap some satin bows. One little foot just peeped without Her petticoat so white; Her hair, a little gray 'tis true, "Was put in curl, and bright ; And sweet her glances shone around, As if some good thing she had found. The clock was en the stroke of eight, And still she sat apart Now listening close, and laying now One hand upon her heirt"; And toying with her curls and rings, And doing other girlish things. At length a step was heard, and then A ringing at the door; "Five minutes and a half too soon," Said Mrs. Mabel Moore. Then to her maid—"lt is no sin- Go quick, and say I am not in." "For if he loves me as he says, He can afford to wait; And come again precisely at Five minutes after eight. My nerves are really unstrung, So very earnestly he rung." But irue love never did run smooth, As oftentimes is told, And when t...

Tuesday, February 27,1872. Our Public Roads. The time seems to have arrived when it be hooves the people of Augusta, and of our sis ter Rockbridge, to adopt some efficient meas ures for the improvement of their public high ways. Recent [events have rendered it ex tremely doubtful whether the Valley Railroad, from Harrisonburg to Salem, will be built—at least for some years to come. We think that the gap between Harrisonburg and Staunton will be filled up during the present year, or ear ly next year. But we fear the line of Railway through the Valley will halt for some years to come. This will leave the Southern and South western portions of our County, and the nor thern half of Rockbridge, without any conve nient means of access to the active market which our town affords for all their productions. As we are too poor, with our own means, to build a Railroad to Lexington, the enquiry nat urally presents itself, "What is the next best thing we can do ?'' In answer to this enquiry, we ...
