STAUNTON SPECTATOR, LOCAL. The Editor i 3 absent, and the paper being thus left to the management of the Devil and another friend, will account for any improvement notice_blo this week. PRESENT TO GEN. LEE. The ladies of Baltimore have presented Gen. &.ec with a very fine Piano Forte, of Louis XIV style, 7 Octaves, richly cawed, round corners, full iron frame and over-strung. The name board •is richly inlaid with mother of pearl, with the name of the maker and the words, "Presented to Robert E. Lee." The Instrument is from the •Piano establishment of Mr. Cha3. M. Stietl, Baltimore. TRUE. The man who does not take the paper or who takes the paper and does not read the advertisements, can never be said to be well posted. The advertisements indicate not only the business enerprise of the place in which they arc published, but the enterprise of the advertiser.

A New Poem. As a general thing we detest paroiies, but we cannot resist the temptation to copy the following, which we think the best of its kind we have ever seen.— Some portions ure not oJy well written, but are truly poetic: MY DEBORAH LEE. 'Tis a dozen or so of years ago, Somewhere in the West countree, That a nice girl lived, as ye Hoosiers know, By the name of Dt borah Lee; Her sister was loved by Edgar Poe, But Deborah by me. Now I wis green and she was green. As a summer's squash might be, And we loved as warmly as other folks", I and my Deborah Lee — Wi'h-a love that the lasses ef Hoosierdom Coveted her and me. But somehow it happened a long ago, In the agueish West countree, That a chill March morning gave the shai*s To my beautiful Deborah Lee; And the grim steam doctor (cirse him) came And bore her away from me— The doctor and death; old partners they—, Iv the agueish countree. The angels wanted her in heaven, (But they never asked for me,) And that ia the reason, I rath...

The Blackbird. Onci upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, O'er the war of the Rebellion, and the things that were before— While I sat absorbed in thinking—brandy cocktails slowly drinking, Suddenly I saw a blinking, one-eyed figure at my chamber door — Saw a one-eyed, winking, blinking figure at my chamber door, Standing there and nothing more. Ah! I never shall forget it, how in glancing round I met it, And-1 ever shall regret it, that I looked toward that door; For I saw a monstrous figure, like a giant, only bigger, And there stood a big buck nigger,leaning up against my door— .... . , Stood a powerful big buck nigger, with his back against my door— Leaning there, and nothing more. Straight into the fireplace spying, where my ham and eggs were frying, I beheld the poker lying, near tbe hearth upon the floor; •___■#____ Then with most determined vigor, straight I hurled it at the nigger; _< But so quick was that big nigger, that it missed and struck ...

Somebody's Son. Somebody's son was out last night, Brushing about the town ; And, if I mistake not, he was? tight — "Tight as a Derby clown." 1 know he's considered a moral youth, Above suspicion—but that is no reason —to tell the trCth, He hadn't "a brick in his hat."
