Tuesday, April 9,1872. Adjonrnment of the Legislature. Last evening, at 6 o'clock, the General Assembly of Virginia adjourned sine die, having completed the work for which they had been convened in extra session, more promptly than from their previous character we had any reason to hope. There was the usual scene of leave-taking when the hour approached for the happy family to separate, and the exhibition of grief at parting was sorrowful in the extreme. The noise and confusion, banging of desks, gathering up of unconsidered trifles, and general work of preparation for departure, however, allowed but little time for sweet communion and tender emotion! Among the spectators few tears were shed save by hotel and boarding-house keepers, and a few others who keenly felt the loss of their customers. At night there was another parting scene at the hotels, and that was the last we shall see of our Legislature until December.— Enquirer of Saturday. ■ —— —.-#. , TALKING POOR. We were struck w...

The Legend of Easter Eggs. Trinity bells with their hollow lungs, And their vibrant lips and their brazen tongues, Over the roofs of the city pour Their Easter music with joyous roar, Till the soaring notes to the sun are rolled Ashe swings along his path of gold. ''Dearest papa," says my boy to me. As he merrily climbs on his mother's knee, 'Why are these eggs that you see me hold Colored so finely with blue and gold ? And what is the wonderful bird that lays Such beautiful eggs upon Easter days ?" Tenderly shine the April skies, Like laughter and tears in my child's blue eyes, And every face in the &treet is gay, Why cloud this youngster's by saying nay ? So I cudgel my brains for the tale he oegs, And tell him this story of Easter eggs : You have heard, my boy, of the Man who died, Crowned with keen thorns and crucified; And how Joseph the wealthy—whom God reward I — Cared for the corpse of his martyred Lord, And piously tombed it within the rock. And closed the gate ...

Tuesday, April 16,1872. SHENANADOAH VALLEY RAILROAD. This road, which has been the subject of so much vague conjecture and speculation, seems at last to be assuming a definite and concrete shape. We learn from a source, which we deem worthy of credit, that the road has been put under contract from Shepherdstown, on the Potomac, to Front Royal, a distance, we suppose, of about forty miles. We are also informed that at a recent meeting of the Board Directors it was determined to make Staunton a point on the line. Our informant expressed the confident opinion that the road will be completed to Staunton by the close of 1873. In its progress westwardly from Staunton, it is proposed to use the line of the C. & O. R. R. to the mouth of Pott's Creek, a mile or two East of Covington, and then continue the road Southwardly, through Monroe, Giles, &c, to Tennessee. Mr. Thomas Scott, the Vice President of the Pennsylvania Central Railroad, and who is also President of th...

The New Church Organ. BY WILL M. CARLETON. They've got a bran new organ, Sue, For all their fuss and search; They've done just as they said they'd do, And fetched it into church. They're bound the critter shall be seen, And on the preacher's right They've hoisted up their new machine, In everybody's sight, They've got a chorister and choir, Agin my voice and vote; For it was never mt desire To praise the Lord by note. I've been a sister good and true For five an' thirty year; I've done what seemed my part to do, An' prayed my duty clear, I've sung the hymns both slow and quick, Just as the preacher read, And twice, when Deacon Tubb was sick, I took the fork an' led ! And now, their bold, new-fangled ways Is comin' all about, And I, right in my latter days, Am fairly crowded out. To-day the preacher, good old dear, With tears all in his eyes, Read : "I can read my title clear To mansion in the skies." I always liked that blessed hymn— I s'pose I always will: It somehow gratifies my w...

Tuesday, April 23,1872, The Situation. An editorial in the Richmond Enquirer of the 19th inst., under the above caption, concludes as follows: "We must gird on our armor for another hard-cider, coon-skin, and "buckeye" campaign. Cincinnati must start it, and we must contribute to keep the ball in motion. It is the only way to win. The country must again be swept by the enthusiasm of the people, as with the force of a tornado. Our stump-speakers, poets, and singers of songs must step to the front, and by the light of blazing bonfires, marching to the music of the restored Union under the banner of reform, we must go forward without .'altering or pausing—conquering and to conquer. The time for argument will then be past and we shall appeal only to the better impulses of our common American nature. This holy fire must be lighted at Cincinnati, and we must take care that the flame is constantly fed and kept brightly burning as it spreads over the land. Our young men must emulate the glo...

How They Fop the Question. The sailor says. "I like your rig; And though I've noticed many, I really think you are old gal, As trim a craft as any : And if you'll only say the word, Through every kind of weather, , Just blast my timbers if we don't Go cruising on together!" The poet, with enraptured gaze, Points out a single star— " 'Tis thus, sweet lady, that you shine On mortals from afar; But oh ! it is my fondest hopeThough selfish I must own— That in some modest vine-wreathed cot You'll shine for me alone." The dancing master—French, of courseThinks earnestly of mating, p And seek some lovely widow with A bow excruciating. "Madame, ze heart is in ze hope, You love a leetle beet, And go ze way of life viz me; Madame, I kees your feet!" The actor quotes from many plays, And swears by all the powers. His hand shall build his Anabelle A cot among the flowers. Without her smile he e'er is like A ship without a rudder; Then talks of dark despair and death, Until he makes her shudder....

Gratz Brown, i SHOULD THERE BE A DEMOCRATIC TICKET? -i We devote most of our space this week to the publication of the proceedings of the con- ( vention of the Libera! Republicans held last ( week in Cincinnati. That Convention nominated Horace Greeley of New York for President, and Gov. B. Gratz t Brown of Missouri for Vice President. . These nominations were unexpected by our people. They did not suppose that a ticket of t such intellectual and moral and popular strength t would be nominated by that Convention.— They consider it a very strong ticket, and one t which, more than any other probably, will effectually divide the Republican party, and secure the support of the best members of that party, whilst it will receive the almost unani- ( mous support of the Democrats and Conserva- , fives, in the alternative of choosing between that ticket and the one which will be nominated by the Radicals in Philadelphia with Grant at the head ...

Tuesday f May 14,1872. The Outlook. As the canvass developes, says the Richmond Whig, the outlook grows more and more encouraging for the Liberals. The mass of intelligence from all quarters condensed and published in our issues of yesterday and to-day shows that those of all parties upon whose cooperation th*e Liberal ticket depends for success, are rapidly whirling into line and taking position. While there is still some talk of a Democratic ticket in certain quarters, it is less high and confident than it was a few days ago.— "Wait for the Democratic "Convention" is an admonition still sounded in the ears, but the point of it is different from what it was. Instead of meaning wait for the nomination that will be made by the Democrats, the turn now given is—wait for the endorsement of the Cincinnati ticket by the Democratic Convention. — This shows a healthy progress of opinion, but it will go a step beyond that if we do not mistake the signs of the times. We shall probably very so...
