STAUNTON SPECTATOR. LOCAL. "PAINFUL." The Charlottesville Chronicle in replying to an article in the Lynchburg Virginian, giving an account of the "painting" and "fixing up" in that place says :—"As for Staunton, it is one of those fussy little towns that makes a great hullabaloo every time a new gutter is put up. If we were inclined to boast we could say much about Charlottesville—we have put in twenty panes of glass in our office since the fall of Richmond—besides a new pair of steps and a platform at our side door." Pshaw ! we can beat you out of your boots.— If we were to take the pains to enumerate all the panes we have had put in our office Bince the battle of Paynes farm or any other incident connected with the late rebellion—the task would be too painful tor our "unenlightened" mind to chronicle. This is not all-we have our frontdoor steps fixed, and we intend to have the platform and steps put up at the "side door" as soon as we can raise the greenbacks and can find a carpe...

STAUNTON SPEC fATOR. LOCAL. A SERVICEABLE COAT. Many years since, an old German citizen of Pendleton county, when about to lead his fair I'frow" to the Hymenial altar, purchased a broadcloth coat in which he was married. His wife presented him with many children, among whom were eight eons, every one of whom were married in the Bame coat in which their father married their toother. The youngest of the eight Bons, had sev*n sons, every one of whom were married in the ♦am* wedding coat, and after the youngest son of the seven, or the youngest Grandson of the original owner of the coat, had led his blushing bride to the altar in his venerable Granfathere fashionable wedding coat, he sold it for the sum of $10. What has become of the coat since it was sold, we hare not been advised, but suppose that some one is keeping it for the purpose of getting married in it. As there seems to be a peculiar matrimonial virtue in this remarkable coat, old bachelors would, doubtless, give a high price...

Kotch on de Jury. There once lived a man—and I'll not tell his name Who lived in the oountry with Polly, his dame; He was fond of indulging too freely at times, And if ever he tasted, away went tbe dimes. For several days he would frolic and spree Away at the tavern, "a-takin' 'o tea;" But Polly at home was uneasy the while, Though she knew that the town was not more than a mile; She knew that if ever he tasted a "drap," He soon would be fixed off for taking a nap, Then h'd trade 'round and "swop,", and always get "bit,* Tho' he never could "man up" the courage to quit. A week nearly spent, then homeward he'd start. With bis eyes looking red and a pain at his heart ; But when Polly would meet him, he'd say with a cough, ,'I was caught on the Jury, and I couldn't get off." But autumn came 'round, and he gathered his corn All up in a heap, and he wanted a "horn ;" And a little wouldn't do, for the neighbors around Would shuck "nary ear," unless they were found..

Black Eyes And Blue, Black eyes most dazzle in a hall; Blue eyes most please at evening fall; The black a conquest soonest gain; The blue.a conquest most retain; The black bespeak a lively heart, Whose soft emotions soon depart; The blue a steadier flame betray, That burns and lives beyond a day; The black may features best disclose ; Tbe blue may feelings all repose; Then let each reign without control, The black all mind—the blue all soul! Where to go. The ferewers should to Malta go The Boobies all to Scilly ; The Quakers to the Friendly Isle', The Furriers to Chili. The little snarling, carolling Babes That break our nightly rest, Should be packed off to Baby-lon, To Lap-land or to Brest.

"Tliey may talk of this world." Talk who will of this world, as a desert of thrall Yet, yet there is bloom on the waste, Tho' the chalice of life hath its acid and gall There are honey drops too for the taste. We murmur and drocp, should a sorrow cloud stay, And note all the shades of our lot, But ihe rich scintillations that brighten our way, Are basked in, enjoyed and forgot. Those who look on mortality's ocean aright, Will not mourn o'er each billow that rolls, But dwell on the glories, the beauties, the might, As well as the shipwrecks and shoals. How thankless is he who remembers alone All the bitter, the drear and the dark ; Tho' the Raven may croak, with its wo-boding Do we ne'er hear the song ofthe Lark? W r e mey utter farewell, when 'tis torture to part, But ih meeting the loved oje agaie, Have we never lejoiced with that wildness of heartWhich out-balances ages, of pain?
