at Washington, are to be located in ever*.* coun ty and parish throughout the United States con taining freedmen and refugees ? Such a system would inevitably tend to a concentration of pow er in the Executive which-Would enable him, if so disposed, to control the action of this numer ous class, and use them for the attainment of his own political ends. I cannot but add another very grave objec tion to this bill. The Constitution imperativeh declares, in connection with taxation, that eacl State shall have at least one representative and fixes the rule for the number to which, in future times, each State shall be entitled. It also provides that the Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, and adds, with peculiar force, that no State, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate. The origi nal act was necessarily passed in the absence of the States chiefly to be affected, because their people were contumaciously enga...

j r 3 Local News. PUBLIC MEETING—PRESIDENT ENDOKSED. We have not the space to indulge in any com ments upon the proceedings of the large meet ing held in the Court House yesterday. We invite attention to the interesting proceedings published in another column. The resolutions are admirable and express the sentiments of the patriotic citizens of this good old county. It will be observed that they express no new born creed, no lately established opinions, but the same sentiments which were entertained and expressed by our people, in public meeting, as early as May the Bth, 1865. Our people have adopted these resolutions, expressing the senti ments they have entertained since the surren der of the Confederate armies, not because they endorse the policy of the President, but have endorsed the policy of the President because his policy corresponds with the views they en tertained and expressed as early as May the Bth, 1865, and which they still honestly entertain, and again publicly expr...

No Dorg to Love. BY JERICUS. No dorg to luv, none to karess, How can I ever my sadness ekspress? Chunck is defunct, ded as a nale. Hushed is his barkin, and still is his tale; O, such a tale, white on the end, Opht did he chase it with a wiggle and bend: Cnase it Avith hope, twisting around, Till overcum he reposed on the ground, Now he's ekstinct, ded as a nale, W r here am his bark and the wag of his tale ? In dream alone, poor Chunck I sea, Swiggin his milk or else scratching a flea, • 'Tis but a dream, Avakingl weep, For under 2 feet of ground does he sleop. O, blissful purp, onst full of pla, Havn't I fed you day after day ? Given you milk, given you bread, Given you many a pat on the bond ? Now you're ekstinct, ded as a nale, Where am the bark and the wag of your tale ? No dorg to lua*, nun to karess, Vanely I strive the sad tears to repress, "Why did yer die ?" sadly I nione, Was it from pizen or swallowin a bone ? No waggin tale, no beamin eye, Answers the question, or gives...

JitaimtiM |§pci;ttar. Local N"ews. The List of Letters, remaining in the Staunton Post Office at the end of each month, M published, by authority, in the Spectator. The ladies of Baltimore are preparing to hold a grand fair after Easter for the benefit of the poor of the South. God bless the good ladies of that generous city. There are 135 students at Washington Col lege, from twelve different States, and the num ber is still increasing. The Board of Trustees will elect two new Professors in April next. We are indebted to Hon. Jno. W. Chanler, of New York, for a pamphlet copy of his speech, on the subject of negro suffrage, delivered in the House of Representatives, January the 12th, 1866. A vacant house on the estate of Jos. Harper, near Stuart's Draft, was destroyed by fire on the night of the 1st of March. There is no doubt but that it was the work of an incendiary. The house had been rented W Mr. John Paul. Mr. Ad. H. Price, living witnin a few miies of this place, shot with a r...

Nothing More. A POPULAR SOKG. • In a A*alley far I Avandered, O'er the meadow pathway green,. Where a singing brook was flowing, Like the spirit of the sheen ; And I saw a lovely maiden, With a basket brimming o'er, With sweet buds, and so Tasked her For a flo Aver and'nothing more. Then I chatted on beside her, And I praised her hair and eyes, And like the roses from her basket, On her cheek saw blushes rise, With her timid looks down glancing, She said would just pass before; But I said that all I wanted, Was a smile, and nothing more. So she Blily smiled upon mo, And I still kept wandering on, What with blushing, smiling, chatting, Soon a brief half hour was gone; Then she told me I must leave her, For she saw her cottage door, But I could not till I rilled Just a kiss and nothing more. And I often meet a maiden, At the twilight's loving hour, With the summer's offspring laden, But herself the dearest flower; And she asked me what I wished for, Grown more bolder than before, With...

If you should e'er get Married. If you should e'er get married, John, I'll tell you what to do— -- Go get a little tenement, Ju3t big enough for two, And one spare room for company, And one spare bed within it — And if you'd begin love's life aright. You'd better thus begin it. In future be moderate, John, And let the stuffed chairs wait; One looking glass will do for both Yourself and loving mate, And Brussels, too, and other things Which make a fine appearance, If you can better afford it, they Will better look a year hence. Some think they must have pictures, John, Superb and costly too ; Your wife will be a picture, John, Let that suffice for you. Remember how the Avise man said : A tent, and love within it, Is better than a splendid house, With bickerings every minute. And one word as to cooking, John, Your Avife can do that best; For love, to make the biscuit rise, Is better far than yeast, No matter if each day you don't Bring turkey to your table, 'Twill better relish by-and...
