gang of rowdies, then, in the melee, another ! crowd rushes forward to assist him; but no one can tell who are his friends or who are his ene- i mies; among them all and by them he is thrown down, jumped upon and trampled nearly to death. Thus it is that, if the United States demand notes are—as we verily believe they are—bet ter ten thousand fold than wildcat paper, yet it j makes no difference; they stand upon the same j level; they are, in one word, like all the others, i irredeemable, and the whole body together, light \ and tlimsy as the body is, combine to effect a ■ weight under which the respectable Uncle Sam j is being crushed to death. ©irgmmii BY COALE &, BAIUEt Friday, Jan.

POETRY. Household Wreck. Sad, sad is the wreck on the sen, When the bark has succumbed to the wave, And cold on the desolate lea Lie the forms of the manly and brave. But sadder the wreck of the heart, When the ties of love have been riven; Whca the soal recoils from the dart And reels 'neath the fiat of Heaven; When the hopes that brightly illumed Have vanished forever in night, And the heart is daily consumed By a grief that knows no respite; When the bosom no longer is stirred By aught that delighted before, When we heed not the song of the bird, And the rose is fragrant no more; When solitude sits at our hearth, And our houso is silent and drear, Where the voice of music and mirth Fall softly and sweet on the ear; When the day wears slowly away, And the nights are weary and long, When we shrink from the light and the gay, And life seems a burden and wrong. For the eye that was bright has been dimmed, The voice that was cheerfid and gay, The smile that radiantly beamed, Have fade...

BY COALE & BAJR^fc Friday, Jan. 16, 1863. rrr~ Wrapping Paper. It will be seen that we are again reduced to the necessity of printing the Virginian up on paper of a beautiful ginger-cake tinge, and We find it very difficult to get even that. The burning of the bridges has played the -; mischief with our calculations. Wonder if the Yankees did it for the purpose of putting out our light! If so, they will be mistaken, as we expect to get a lot of paper from the region of Ramsour's mill-pond. j * m * 1 The Kews. ' With unimportant exceptions, the news from our armies is still encouraging. The great fight at Vicksburg, resulting in the re pulse and terrible slaughter of the Yankees, shows that Gen. Joe Johnston has been about. We have-no longer a doubt as-to the success of the Army of the Mississippi. With Gen. Johnston as its leader, it is unconquerable.— We give, in other columns, all the news of importance that has reached us up to the hour of going to press. The reader will find...

POETRY. Shall we know each .other There When we hear the music ringing. Through a bright celestial dome, When sweet angel voices singing, Gladly bid us welcome home, To the land of ancient story, Where the spirit knows no care— In the land of light and glory—. Shall we know each other there? "When the holy angels meet us, As we go to join their band, Shall we know the friends tli#t greet us • In the glorious spirit land ? Shall we see their dark eyes shining On us, as in days of yore ? Shall we feel their loved arras twining Fondly round us as before ? Yes, my earth-worn soul rejoices, And v» r weary heart grows light, For the thrilling angel voices, And the angel faces bright, • That shall welcome us in Heaven, Are the'lovod of long ago, And to them 'tis kindly given Thus their mortal friends to know. O! ye weary ones and lost ones, Droop'not, faint not by the way; Yo shall join the loved and lost ones In the land of perfect day. Harp-strings, touched by angel fingers, Murmur in my...

Whether or not we will get paper in time for next week's issue, is now among things that have not been revealed. A Subject of Interest. We made a call upon the people in our last issue, to send us all the old cotton and linen rags they could gather up, and thus far only two have responded. The two we refer to, are among the first ladies of this place, and have sent us the rags more as a matter of pa triotism than of profit, as a few dollars for rags is no object to them. But, no matter what the motive may be, we want the rags, and un less the people* supply ns we'll have to "shut op shop," for the paper mills can't furnish us with paper unless we furnish them with rags.

OBITUARIES. Died, on the 10th inst., at his residence near Sdongle's Springs, Washington county, Va., af ;er an illness of four weeks, Rev. David M. Buck. The disease which resulted in his death was Typhoid fever. Notwithstanding the most as siduous and soothing ministratiou of his affec tionate family, and the most skillful medical at tention, yet the disease could not be stayed.— Death claimed him for his own, and tore him a way from the bleeding bosoms of trig family an 1 friends —striking down in their midst, their be loved Pastor who had labored long and faithful ly among them. The Church of Christ has sus tained a great loss in the departure of our be loved brother Buck, from the labors of earth to the joys of heaven. He was an affectionate hus band, indulgent father, kind master, beloved neighbor, and a bright and shining light to tli" Church. He was gifted by nature with, a and vigorous mind, and devoting himself assidu ously to his studies, he not only made large at tainmen...

POETRY. The Place Where Man should Die. How little recks it where men die, When once the moment's past, In which the dim and glazing eye Has looked on earth its last ; Whether beneath itssculotured urn The coffin'd form shall rest, Or in its nakedness return Back to its mother's breast? Death is a common friend or foe, As different men may hold, And at his summons each must go The timid and the bold ; But when the spirit free and warm Deserts it, as it must, What matters where the lifeless form Dissolves again to dust ? The soldier falls 'mid corses piled Upon the battle plain, Where reinless war steeds gallop wild Among the mangled slain; But though his corpse be grim to see, Hoof-trampled on the sod, ■ What recks it when the spirit free Has soared aloft to God ? The coward's dying eye may close Upon his downy bed, And softest hands his limbs compose, Or garments o'er them spread; But ye who shun the bloody fray, Where fall the mangled brave, Go—strip the coffin lid away And see hi...

firpiait. BY COALE &c BARJEfc ITriclay, Jan. 30, 1863. On Friday last, pursuant to sentence, the two negfoes, Jerry and Jim, who brutally murdered Mr. Wm. McDaniel Jr., of this county, in October last, were hung in this vi cinity. When the circumstances of the murder for which these incarnate devils were executed are called unprovoked utroeiiy—the inoffensivennd amiable character of the victim —the large and helpless family so cruelly be reaved— tbevicious and dangerous character of the outlaws who perpetrated the deed—no stronger evidence could be given of the high moral tone and law-abiding disposition of this community, in not inflicting prompt and merited punishment without the form of law, immediately after the apprehension of the culprits. Not only wt>re they tried by a regular Court with able counsel assigned them, but si respite of more than thirty days was given them to prepare for their fate. During all this time they were allowed the exhortations and advice of the ...

They threw- over board their cargoes of subsistence, ordnance and quartermaster's stores in immense quan tities,and escaped by a hasty retreat.

POETRY. The following beautiful poem was pub lished in these columns some months ago, and we re-insert it at the request of several friends: "ALL QUIET ALONG THE POTO MAC TO-NIGHT." By Lamar Fontaine, Company I. Second Regi ment Virginia Cavalry. Written while on picket en the bank of the Potomac, 1861. "...All quiet along the Potomac to-night," Except here and there a stray picket Is shot as he walk* on his beat to and fro By a rifleman hid in the thicket. •Tis nothing—a private or two now and then Will not count in the news of the battle: Not an officer lost! only one of the men, Moanning out, all alone, the death rattle. ♦•All quiet along the Potomac to-night," Where the soldiers lie peacefully dreaming, And their tents in the rays of the clear autumn moon, And the light of their camp fires arc gleaming. A tremulous sigh, as the gentle night wind Through the' forest leaves slowly is creeping, While the stars up above, with their glittering eyes, Keep guard o'er the army while sle...
