gftamtaa ggyfttov Tuesday , June 25 9 1872* N. Y. Conference—Greeley—Tidal Wave. A Conference composed of about a hundred members of distinguished gentlemen from a number of States was held in New York City on Thursday last. It was called by those who were opposed to the nomination of Greeley at Cincinnati, and for the purpose of bringing in fluences to bear upon the National Democratic Convention to be held in Baltimore to secure the nomination of a third ticket by that body. Invitations were extended to a number of dis tinguished gentlemen—including Hon. A. H. H. Stuart and Hon. Jno. B. Baldwin of this place—who were not in sympathy with the purpose for which its originators called this conference, though they belonged to the class which the terms of the invitation embraced, to wit: Those in favor of uniting all the elements of opposition to Grant's re-election. The Conference thus called by anti-Greeley men was held, and lo! and behold I it was found that even the conference thus...

A Song in June. . The brook went rippling, rippling, Over the pebbles in June, Through reeds and rushes its wound its way, Humming a low, sweet tune. The little forget-me-not listened, And her blue eye beamed less bright, And the startled lily oped wider Her flowers of gleaming white. O brook 1 0 brook 1 now tell me What thou to the flowers didst say ? Bht the brook, still rippling, rippling, Went lazily on its way. The wind went sighing, sighing, Through the tall trees in June, And tho chestnut blossoms shivered As it sang its mournful tune. The dove cooed ever more gently As the whispering wind passed by, And the linnet's note sourded softer, And saflder the bittern's cry. O wind I O wind ! now tell mo What thou to the birds didst say ? But the wind, still sighing, sighing, Through the forest stole away. My heart was beating, beating, Faster that day in June, And a voice within it murmured A dreamy, dirge-like tune. O heart! O heart 1 now tell me What the voico to thee doth cay ? ...

Tuesday, July 2^1872^ Conserative State Convention. The Conservative State Convention wnich was held in Richmond on Thursday and Friday last, represented the character, talents and pa triotism of the Stato, and was very similar to that grandest of all State Convention Iwhich met in the same building in 1867, at which, h y the cordial union of the Democratic and parties of the State, the Conservative r ar t y was formally and solemnly organized, K y which our beloved State, "whose fame," \ Q the i angaage of Senator Ihurman, "wiP endure as long as genius has a freedom a disciple, or heroism an admir" r ." was gayed from the in concievable horrors and intolerable oppression of Radio*,', domination. This Convention, like that- nas done its work well, and like that it *7«ill be productive of great good.

Dolly Varden. BY BRET HARTE. Dear Dolly! who does not recall The thrilling page that pictured all Those charms that held our sense in thrall Just as the artist caught her — As down that English lane she tripped, In flowered chintz, had sideways tipped, Trim-bodiced, bright-eyed, roguish lipped— The locksmith's pretty daughter? Sweet fragment of the Master's art! O sim pie faith! O rustic heart! O maid that hath no counterpart In life's dry, dog-eared pages ! Where shall wo find thy like ? Ah, stay! Methinks I saw her yesterday In chintz that flowered as one might say, Perennial for afces. Her father's modest cot was stone, Five stories high. In style and tone Composite, and, I frankly own, Within its walls revealing Some certain novel, strange ideas; A Gothic door with Roman piers. And floors removed some thousand years From their Pompeiian ceiling. The small salon where she received Was Louis Quatorze, and relieyed By Chinese cabinets, conceived Grotesquely by the heathen; The sofa...

We place tbe ticket of Geeley for President and Brown for Vice-President at the head of our column. Though we have favored the elec tion of this ticket from the time it was nomi nated at Cincinnati two months ago, and oppos ed the nomination of any other by the National Democratic and Conservative party, as such nomination would ensure the re-election of Grant, and the continuance of the mischievous influence over him of the corrupt malignants by whom he is surrounded, we have not here tofore placed it at the head of our column, be cause it was due to the party to which we belong to await its action in reference thereto.

An Epigrammatic Riddle. I am a word of letters five And represent a thing alive. My first removed I do but rant While minus two makes me an ant: My first and fourth withdrawn and pat— I'm changed into a squeeling rat; Tail foremost turn tbe rat and square, You bave a sticking mass of tar; This stir a little brief and smart, And 10, you find a thing of art. Thou thing of art—thou mass of tar, Pray tell me whence and what you are; Thou squeeling rat —thou plodding ant, Say do I truly ppeak or rant, When I respond and call thee Grant . _#-. Every one has heard the reply of the butcher to the sentimental body who remonstrated a gainst the killing of innocent lambs: "Lor , ma'am, you wouldn't eat them alive, would you?" Apropos of this there is an anecdote of Goldsmith not commonly known. When he had written that beautiful stanza of the "Her mit": "No flocks that range the valley free To slaughter I condemn; Taught by the Power that pities me, I learn to pity them"— he submitted it to (t...

SUSIE SANDERS. Sue Sanders was a country lass, With eyeß as brown as buns, And cheeks that held the peachy bloom Of eighteen summer suns. She never owned a silken dress, Nor dreamed of Mechlin lace, Yet wore her tidy home-spun gown With such bewiching grace, That scarce the merchants' gayest goods Had made her seem more fair- No princess with a sweeter grace A royal robe could wear. One day there came a city man, With wealth and honors rife, And asked sweet Susie Sanders soon If she would be his wife. Now Sue a country laddie loved, With scarce a dime to show: But Susie loved him none the less, And she answered "No." The rich man bit his bearded lip, And bent his haughty head; But, hoping by bis wealth to win, He waited still and said— Your country lad is rude and rough, With brawny, sun-browned hands, And offers with his clownish name No gold nor goodly lands. "While wealth and gems, a stately house, And name of ancient pride, Are mine to offer to the one I ask to be my bride." The...
