Lines To Our Baby. Little allspice, pepper, pickle! Baby, changeable and fickle. Lying in your nurse's arms, Safe from everything that harms; Full of smiles and full of tears, Full of joys and full of fears, Are you mortal or divine? Tell me, little baby mine ! Little rabbit, cricket, robin! Baby whimpering and sobbing. Sleeping on your mother's lap, Dreaming, whiles, of sweetened pap. Pleased with chirping, pleased with song, Quieted by nothing long. Care you most for milk or wine? Tell me, little baby mine! Little monkey, lemon, clove ! Baby, fruit of wedded love, Seated on your father's knee, j As wide awake as you can be. Striving, while you clutch the air, To pull his whiskers or his hair, Think you not you're something fine ? Tell me, little baby mine! Little poppy, saffron, thistle ! Baby, stilled with chirp and whistle, Nestled in y our cradle small, Like a little waxen doll; Do you in your slumbers view Bpirits hovering over you— Angel spirits half divine? Tell me, little b...

Ode to my New Bonnst. Soft triangle of straw and lace That curves around my blushing face, With such a coy bewitching grace. No mortal man would d r eam your place Was on my head. Tour airy touch can scarcely press The f hape from curl or flowing tress, Eo light, so next to nothingness, You eurely could not well be less Ard be a bonnet, A bit of straw adorned with leather, A yard of l.cc, a spray of heather, Some bugles and a tossing feather, These trifles shaken a 1 together— Thus were you made. So cup l * with starchy netting lin*d. No buckram crown projects beiiind ; . But streamers flutter in the wind, There flows in silken mesh confined, My waterfall. Yet most your dainty fcrm I priie, As sweeping back above mine eye* It lets the driukled hillocks rise, "Where underneath in ambush lies My pair of mice. But when rough Autumn winds sweep pait, And all our laces shake aghast, Then can you shield me from the blast, And roitnd my neck a shelter cast To keep me warm. Alas! a summer f...

STAUNTON SPECTATOR. Fire Company. We-would call tbe attention of tbe citizens Of our town to tbe importance of having the fire engines, reels and hose in proper condi tion for use, for we cannot tell at what mo ment the startling cry ot fire ! lire ! ! may be heard. As the soldiers under the command of Gen. Hunter knocked the spokes out of the wheels of the reels, and punctured the hose with bayon.ts, they are now useless in their present state, and it is necessary to buy . new ones. We kerbw that the efficient Fire Company which we had before the war, and indeed, during the war, will reorganize and prepare to do their duties, as soon as these indispensable things can be procured. The citizens ofthe town should furnish the means to buy them as soon as possible. A week's delay may cause the loss of a great deal of valuable property. Put not off till to-mor row what should be done to day. In the ab sence of the proper precautions and prepara tions, a spark may originate a fire which m...

Good, solemn grandfather dar s hardly to speak Or wa'k, le_t the sleeper should hear his boot* creak. Grandma is a martyr in habits aud cap, Which the monarch unsettles as well as the nap.

STAUNTON_SfEC IATOR. LOCAL. KKR, STEVENSON* CO. We would invite attention to the card of Messrs..KEß, STEVENSON __ CO., Whole- Bale Grocers, Commission and Forwarding Merchants. This firm is doing a good deal of business, and their success is due to enterprise and promptness and liberal advertising. The man Who expects to do much business now without ad. Vertising liberally is by no means a business man. No man can now inspire the public with confi dence in his capacity as a business man who does not show his appreciation of printer's ink as an agent of success. The man who goes to sleep in the shade aud expects the cherry to drop into his gaping mouth is about as wise as the man who «xpects business to come to him without the use of the proper means—the chief of which is adver tising. The unerring instincts of the people di rect them to the business houses which advertise, and furnish evidence of enterprise and liberality. SIMON 11. HILB.

Farmers' Girls l p in the early morning, Just at the peep of day, Stiaining the miHt in the dairy, Turning the cows away— f. .reeping the floor in the kitchen, Making the beds up stairs, Washing the breakfast dishes, Dusting the parlor chairs. I*rushing the crum' s from the pantry, Hunting for eggs at the barn, Cleaning the turnips for dinner, Spinning the stocking yarn— Spreading the whitening linen Down ou the bushes below, Ransacking every meadow Whe:c the red strawberries grow. Starching the "fixings," for Funday, Churning the snowy cream, Rinsing the paiJs and strainer Down in the running stream ; Feeding the geese and turkies, Making the pumpkin pies, Jogging the little one's cradle, Driving away the f__cs. Grace in every motion, Music in every tone, Beauty of form and feature Thousands might covet to owu— Cheeks that rival spring roses, Teeth the whitest of pearls ; One of these country maids is worth A score of your city gills.

Ihe fact ? It seems to me that the advocates of the test oath seek to make the incident more impor tant than the principal. They admit that the President may pardou treason, but deny that he can absolve from its consequences. This assump tion is contradicted by all j|the authorities, En glish and American, and is at war with every suggestion of common sense. I think, therefore, upon a view of the case in the several aspects in which I have presented it, that it is my duty to decline taking the test oath, not in any spirit of haughty defiance or arrogant assumption, but simply because I believe it to be in violation of the Constitution of the U. S., which I have sworn to support, and because, even if it were Constitutional, I have been absolved from its penalties by the pardon of the President. Permit me, in conclusion, to add that this is i no sectional question. It concerns the people of the North, as well as the South. It involves a grave issue, which will affect the equilibrium o...

STAUNTON SPEC lATOR. LOCAL. IMPRISONED. We are imprisoned—we cannot perambulate — we are "cabinned, cribbed, confined"—we have to keep all the time in one place. This impris onment has not been caused by an ukase of the Government or the arbitrary will of any mili tary Commander or Provost Marshal. It is Tolualary, if that can be called voluntary which proceeds from constrained considerations of pru dence. In a word, we find confinement prefera ble to such liberty, so called, as we can enjoy in walking the streets. Such is the spirit of im provement which has ' siezed and laid violent hands upon" the citizens of thi3 place that a man cannot walk the streets without running nolens valens, against hammers, saws, planes and paini brushes —stumbling over hods and falling, ker bloß_i, into beds of mortar. The oldest citizens cannot walk more than a square without getting lost—they can't recognize the most familiar, or what used to be the most fimiliar places. Every few steps they have to...

, — — From the Waverley Magazine. "Water-Falls." We see around us, every day, New fashions by the score, And, as they quickly flit away We find a million more ; But my frail muse has not the time To versify them all, So grant me pardon while I rhyme About the "water-fall." The ladies thought this bad of curls And Lunch of foreign hair, Was only worn by modem girls Upon their shoulders fair : Lay not this unction to your heart, When God created man, And Adam saw his "better part," The fashion first began. When our first parents roamed abioad Through Eden's garden fair, Their path was in a joyous road, 'Mid flowerets rich and rare, Until they ate the "tempting fruit," When both felt very queer. They found their lodgings "didn't suit," And "wat-a-lall" was there '. When Moses prayed to Egypt's Lord, "Release us from our woe," Old Pharaoh, tired of being bored, Said, "take your traps and go ;" And, as he followed on their track, With warriors stiong and tall. To bring the Hebrew bondmen...
