Aunt Tabitha. BT O. W. HOLMES. Whatever I do and whatever I say, Aunt Tabitha tells me thai isn't the way; When she was a girl (forty summers ago) Aunt Tabitha tells me they never did so. Dear aunt! if I only would take her advice! -But I like my own way, and I find it so nice: And besides, I forget half the things I am told ; But they all will come back to me—when I am old. If a youth passes hy, it may happen, no doubt, He may chance to look in as I chance to look out: She would never endure an impertinent stareIt is horrid, she says, and I rausa't sit there. A walk in the moonlight has pleasures, I own, But it isn't quite safe to be walking alone; So I take a lad's arm—just for safety, you knowBut Aunt Tabitha tells me they didn't do so. How wicked we are, and how good they were then, They kept at arm's length those detestable men ; What an era of virtue she lived in l But stayWere the men all such rogues in Aunt Tabitha's day? If the men were so wicked, I'll ask my papa How he da...

Valley Railroad.—We understand that at the meeting of tho Board of Directors of the Valley Railroad Company, in Baltimore, last week, the executive committee was empowered to let to contract the sections between Harrisonburg and Staunton as, in its discretion, it may determine.

[From the Shepherdstown Register.] "SUGAR IN HIS'N." The evening was stormy and raw, I sat in a bar-room to warm, Two striplings came in, as I saw, And went to the bar arm in arm. They called for a drink, as I stood, (For I from my chair had arisen,) One tossed off his glass and said "good I" But Jimmy takes sugar in his'n." I cast a quick glance at that boy. His face was the picture of health, ■fie had all that heart could enjoy, And prospect of very great wealth. Years passed and Jim soon was a man, ,In favor with all he had risen ; For life he'd no definite plan, But still he took sugar in his'n. All thought him an excellent match, Who'd daughters to settle in life. The ladies esteemed him a "catch," And Jim looked around for a wife. His father and mother were glad That Jim to such favor had risen; One thing only made them feel sad, Jim still would take sugar in his'n. Jim married. The wedding was grand, And guests by the hundred were there, He'd money and houses and land And pro...

Tuesday, March 19,1872. Altercation between Deneale and Riddlebarger. An altercation between Deneale, of Rockingham, and Riddlebarger, of Shenandoah, occurred on the floor of the House of Delegates on Thursday last. Both were arrested by the Sergeant-at-Arms, and placed under bonds in the sum of $5,000 each, to keep the peace. During the consideration of the land scrip bill, as the Whig says editorially, Messrs. De neale and Riddlebarger were seen to converso excitedly. Immediately afterwards the former walked towards the door, and the latter, taking his hat, prepared to follow, when the Sergeant-at-Arms placed them under arrest. Mr. Riddlebarger, rising to a question of privilege, stated that he had been denounced by the member from Rockingham (Mr. Deneale) as a scoundrel and a puppy, and he protested against the right of the Sergeant-at-Arms to arrest him. Mr. Deneale said that he had always endeavored to preserve the dignity and decorum of the House, and that nothing was farther ...

Tennyson Improved. ' In Tennyson's last poem occur these lines : "Down in a casement sat, A low sea-sunset glorying round her hair, And glossy-throated grace, Isolt the Queen. And when she heard the feet of Tristram grind The spiring stone that scaled about her tower, Flush'd, started, met him at the door, and there Belted his body with her white embrace." The New York Commercial Advertiser suggests that the authors manuscript must have been altered by the publishers; for the lines, as originally written, were as follows: "Down in a casement sat, At low sea-sunset hour, a Thomas cat; A glossy-throated Tom ; the feline 'Boss.' And when he heard the feet of Tabby grind The garden fence and climb the wooden porch, Forth from the casement dashed this Tom, The dorsal bone high curved and firm; "Whereat a fierce voice cried, 'Pish ! git you 1 scat!' Then quickly 'got' this Tab, likewise this Thomas cat." GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF VIRGINIA. Senate.— Saturday, March 9. —The Senate bill to incorpo...

gftnattott gfytetor,l March 26,1879. Jas. E. A. Gibbs vs. Valley Railroad Go. Mr. Gibbs, one cf the Directors of Rockbridge county, in the Directory of the Valley Railroad Company, publishes, in the last Lexington Gazette, a longcommunication addressed "to the people of Rockbridge," from which it appears that he has lost all hops of the adoption of the central route through that county, and but little, if any confidence, in the good faith of the Company. Tbe tenor of his communication may be judged of by its first paragraph, which reads as follows : "A short time ago I addressed a communication to you, counselling patience until official developments should be made affecting our interests. These developments have now been made, and they are more startling and show less regard for our rights and interests than I believed it possible to come from the source they do. They are no less than a deliberate expressed purpose to build the Valley Railroad on the South River line, along the bas...

Tho Paper Bustle. 'Twas Tuesday nightNo moon shone bright, But all was cool and shady, A gay young gent, Down Main street went, Walking with a lady. They talked of loveHe called her dove— He told of his affection. She heaved a sigh, And turned her eye In an opposite direction. But why that start, "Which chilled his heart, As if with ice encrusted ? Ah ! do not blame — (We give no name.) For in a sudden hustle, She broke in twain The tender string, That held her "paper bustle 1" * >. PUBLIC SCHOOL MUSIC.

Tuesday, April 2,1572, Fatal Accident. On Tuesday morning of last week, George Santmyers, son of Daniel Santmyers, a worthy young man, who was employed as brakesman on the Connellsville & Pittsburg Railroad, and who would soon have been promoted to the position of conductor, was killed under the following circumstances, as given by the Winchester News: "It appears that while passing a curve on the road near Connellsville, he was standing on top of a car, when his head struck a bridge, fracturing his skull and killing him instantly. He was in the discharge of his duty at the time, and it is believed was prevented from seeing the bridge by the smoke from the engine."

From the Monthly Visitor. A Lover's Idyl—The Grecian Bend. BY X. I saw thee first in bud of youth, And much I lov'd thee then For thou seem' d to be a tale of truth, Writ by the Almighty's pen. No Grecian Bend could then be trae'd, About thy form so fair, Nor bustles placed around thy waist, To cause the eyes to stare. I knew thee still in bloom of years— I knew thee, tho' estranged: And I have wept, aye bitter tears, To know thee so much changed. I saw thy back grow to a mound, Like famous Bunker's Hill, And to its height I said "confound"— My troubled heart be still 1 Since now I know thee as thou art, A Grecian Bending maid, I feel thine image from my heart, Will slowly, surely fade. In other days, I was thy knight, Devotedly and true; That was before thine Alpine height, To such proportion grew. To see its swelling magnitude, Aspiring to thy shoulder, I fear'd my love would be subdued, Or crushed by such a boulder. 'Mong other girls I sought relief, In absent mood dejected. But ...
