RESTORATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS. The Louisville Journal quotes approvingly an extract from the National Intelligencer , urging the importance of returning as rapidly -,s possib/e to the old political status. The Journal remarks that the Intelligencer "says with truth, that it is of the utmost importance that military law shall be superseded as fast, as may be, by the civil law. Tho inclitit ion of power should be constantly in the direction of the entire restoration of civil rights aud forms, rather than these should stagnate and rust while the bayonet and the jiword are dai/y furbished and polished.

Mr. Editor: —Do the people of Augusta know what a complete farce was enacted in the Court House, on last Court day, by the meeting that undertook to nominate a ticket to be supported by the voters of the county for the next General Assembly of Virginia? If they do not, 1 propose to put them in possession of some facts connected with this affair, which I think will materially aid them in ma_ing up their minds for whom they will vote in the coming election. There being a universal desire on the part of the people of the County, to indicate the Hon. A. H. H. Stuart as a suitable person to represent this district, in the next Consret-s of ihe United States, they, mainly at the suggestion of Vajor J. M, McCue, went into a meeting for the purpose of placmg Mr. §. before the people of the distiict, as Augusta's choice for the position in question. Major J. M. McCue moved that the meeting be organized by calling to the chair Col William A. Bell, which was acc...

You remember it—don't youV You will think of it —won't you? Yes, yes, of all this the remembrance will last Long after the present fades into the past You remember the grief that grew lighter when shared; With the blis3, you remember, could aught be compared ? _ou remember how fond was my earliest vow?

ON FASHION. BT 81--T PEPPKB-IKT. ft. is not to show smartness Bnt merely to kill time— And keen me from sleeping That I make you this rhyme. How much dress has changed, From Adam's and Eve's — For they pinned theirs together With thorns out of leaves. But the lad ies pattern after Their old mother, Eve— Put all in the skirt, And none for body and sleeve. Give them ten yards of calico, Or eight yards of check. It will make them a full dress— Clear up to the neck. Give them twenty yards of silk, And 1 really believe — They would'nt care whether They had body or sleeve. But so goes the world on With daughters and wives — They'll have the steel hoops on At the risk of their lives. For I saw a notice to-day, But it was not in prose, Where the hoops drew the lightning And burnt off their clothes. I never saw mother Eve, But I only do guess— She wore a bib apron Instead of a dress. So we ought not to wonder That the Japanese wanted to know, Whether the ladies in this country In that shape ...
