Coining. Without you, without you my darling ! Without you! what more can I say, To show .you how lonely my heart is, Whenever my heart is away? I wait and watch for you, dearest, With never a doubt or a fear, But that some to-morrow will bring you, Some day of all days in the year. How many to-morrows there have been! How many to-morrows may be ! The longest, love, but brings me nearer, That day of all others to me. And often I fancy I hear you- Your hand on the latch of the door, Your voice in the hall and your footsteps Cl ose —closer —beside me once more. With glad eyes, half shut, now I see you, As strong and as brave and as true ; And eyes I know, even in darkness, Belong to no other than you. I know that at last it is over, The wearying trouble and care; And courage and comfort come back with The touch of your hand on my hair. But often, and often, and often, I open my eyes—you are gone! I am sitting alone by the window, The shadows of night coming on. So often I dream you ar...

Staunton Spectator. Local News. We have complaints again from Phillippa, Barbour county, W. Va., that the Spectator is not received there regularly. The papers are sent off regularly from this office properly di rected. The fault is elsewhere. We call the attention of Postmasters to these complaints. ■ _♦. By reference to advertisement it will be seen that John G. Effinger, is now in the house of Jones & Hewit, commission and forwarding merchants, No. 6, 15th Street between Main and Cary.

Motto of the Mass. BY MILKS O'REILLY. I've seen enough of life, although Not yet beyond my prime ; With men of all sorts—high and low— I've mingled in my time. When but a boy it came to pass That, thrown upon the town, I found the motto ofthe mass Was, "kick him when he's down." And every year since then hath given Fresh proof of this decree ; But whether made in hell or heaven The doctors disagree. I only know the fact is so, And smile at it or frown, The art of life seams in the strife, To kick whoever's down. Young Leon in his twentieth year, Had friends —God wot! a heap ; Their friendship may have been sincere— It surely was not cheap. He came of age—spent all he had, And wandering through_the town, Neglected, hungry, well nigh mad, \ V;. kicked when he was down. Poor Edith, too, the lovliest girl That ever charmed our sight, Of beauty's crown the fairest pearl. And good as she was bright. She fell! she fell! Let scandal tell The tale to all the town, Aloud proclaim a sister's s...

Love of the Country. m In solitude I love to roam, On plains, or mountains high; To watch the soaring warbler Speed onward to the sky; To listen to the little birds In God's cathedral towers, Tuning their tiny notes of praise Amid their leafy bowers; To gaze on all the valleys fair ; To see the hillside green, Where, wandering listlessly along, The sheep at will may glean. To wander farthest from the haunts Of toil, and care, and strife; To sit beside the gurgling stream, So full of happy life ; And where the torrents leap and dash Into the depths below, And murmuring breezes sadly sigh— 'Tis there I love to go. To go, or not to go. BY AX EXEMPT —WRITTEN DURING THE WAR. To go, or not to go—that is the question; Whether it pays best to suffer pestering By idle girls and garrulous old women, Or to take up arms against a host of Yankees, And by opposing, get killed. To die. to sleep, (Git eout!) and in this sleep to say "we sink, To rest by all our country's wishes blest," And live for...

From the Metropolitan Record. Idylls of the War. AT NIGHT—TO AN ABSENT HUSBAND. 'Tis midnight, and our baby boy Lies slumbering in his nest, The busy little feet are still, The prattling lips at rest; Only the round white arm outstretched, Unconscious what they seek, With tiny, fluttering fingers strive To find his mother's cheek ; That mother stealing from his side, Seeks to commune with thee, Her soul as restless as the tide Of the unquiet sea. She looks round the familiar room, Where all things are unchanged, Yet seem their shadow t s to assume Fantastic shapes and strange. Your garments hanging by the wall Amid their folds retain A shadowy semblance of the form They may not clasp again. Your couch its old accustomed place, Beside tho casement keeps, Tho' on its vacant pillow now Only the moonlight sleeps; But 1 sleep not —I cannot sleep, And anxious, restless, wild, I list with envy to the deep Calm breathing of our child, And pray that 'ueath the soldier's tent Your own rude be...
