Poesy. Thongh’mighty deeds of valor done, And many fields of valor won, Be soon forgot, they shine in fame By means of men of humble name. Some youth, perchance, of ardor fine, Whose will can wield the flowing lino, Whose music teaches him to sing, Sheds lasting lustre on a king. For long as beauteous poesy And gentle arts their pencils ply, The po< t hath a place to fill. And nobly works with mighty skill. Some men must rhyme and some must play, Some vanquish in the well-fought day ; But these as they are truly great— Both they who charm and rule the state. Then deem not him whose words rehearse The deeds of kings in flowing verse A useless weed amidst the trees— A blossom wafted on the breeze. The king must die, the conqueror lie As lowly as his brother clay ; But winsome words and fervid lines Last while the sun in heaven shines. A Snake Story. In my papers on snakes I have endeavored to point out cot only all that is necessary t‘*r their well being in transmission, bu...

FARM, GARDEN AND HOUSEHOLD. Household Hints. To clean goods made of white zephyr, rub in flour or magnesia, changing often, shake off and hang in the open air a short time. To prevent blue from fading, put an ounce of sugar of lead in a pail of soft water, soak the material in the solution for two hours, and let it dry before being washed. It is good for all shades. To wash brown linen in hay tea, boil the bay until it is a dark green, then turn into it the made starch, let it soak a few minutes, wash without soap, and do not rinse it. To get rid of the smell of paint in a chamber or a living-room, slice a few onions and put them in a pail of water in the centre of the room ; close the loor, leave the window open a little, ind in a few honrs the disagreeable ,dor will have almost gone. Another aethod is to plunge a handful of hay oto a pa;lful of water, and let it stand in the ntwly painted room over night ; this plan is also effectual. To prevent scarlet flannel or worsted goods of...

Leroy Elimles Convicted and Sentenced. From the Charlottesville icle” of the Bd we get the following: On Saturday last the jury in the cat>e of Leroy Rhodes, charged with participation in the murder of Mr. and Mrs. John O. Massie, after an absence of about fifteen minutes in the .fury room, returned a verdict pronouncing the prisoner guilty of murder in the second degree and fixing the term of imprisonment In the penitentiary at eleven years. A motion for a new trial was made by his counsel, S. B. Woods, Esq., but was subsequently withdrawn, ana on Monday the Judge pronounced sentence on the prisoner, an ordeal which he passed through without visible emotion. It is believed that apprehensions ol a fate similar to that which was meted out to his brother tended greatly 10 satisfy the prisoner with the decision ol the jury, and to steady ins nerves when that decision was confirmed by the Judge. Rhodes was defended with great vigor by his counsel, whose management of the case...

The Girls. Hear the laughter ot the girls— Pistty girls. What a fund of merriment each mby lip unfurls I How they chatter, chatter, chatter, In the balmy air of night 1 While the stars that over-spatter All the heavens hear £her clatter In a soft and mild delight; To the tintinnabulation that, unceasing, ever purls From the girls, girls, girls, girls, Girls, girls, girls, From the wild, capricious, saucy, jaunty girls. See the flirting of the girls, Badiant girls ! How the lover’s softened brain wildly whirls Through the mazes of the ball, Up and down the stately hall ! How he skips to and fro And perspires ! What that we could tell the idiot all we know Of the fires Into which the false ones hurl Each new whim- see the flame—ho wit swirls ! How it curls ! How it curls !

AGRICULTURAL. EoKtlaae.—The ftllo. Crops for Ensilage : Corn takes the lead of ensilage crops. B\e'is grown by many in connection with corn—the eame ground producing a crop of each in a season. Oats, sorghum, Hungarian grass, field peas, clover-in fact, almost every crop used for soiling—has been stored in silos and taken out in good condition. There are indications that some materials have their value enhanced by the fermentation of the silo, while in others there is loss. The relative value for ensilage of the different soiling crops can only be determined through careful tests, often repeated, by practical men. All thoughtful farmers would ba glad to get more value from the bulky fodder of their com crops than is found in any of the common methods. There are accounts of plucking the ears when the kernels were well glazed, and putting the fodder into the silo. The valne of such ensilage, and the loss, if any, to the grain, are not sufficiently ascertained to warrant positive state...

POPULAR SCIENCE. Photographers' sensitive plates, ex* posed at a depth of 300 feet, show that light penetrates clear water to that depth. The gold annually taken from the Siberian mines is estimated to be worth $6,000,000. The first discovery of the metal in that country was made at the beginning of this century. Somebody has estimated that the quantity of sediment carried down by Chinese rivers indicates that if the deposit continues at the present rate the Yellow sea will be converted into dry land in 86,000 years. Hailstones are small in Germany; a writer there finds that hail is not so destructive to glass as is usually be•lieved, as it seldom damages panes an eighth of an inch thick; and a thickness of a quarter of an inch is almost absolutely safe. The green color of oysters, which 'gives them the highest price in the market, is probably due to disease of the liver. It increases the adipose tisIsue and makes them more palatable, j But often a similar color is produced !by the ...

How the Farmer Missed It, If I had told her in the spring The old, old story briefly, When the sparrow and robin began to sing, And the plowing was over chiefly! But haste makes waste, and the story sweet, I reasoned, will keep through the sowing, Till I drop the corn and plant the wheal, And give them a chance for growing. Had I even told the tale in June, When the wind through the grass was blowing, Instead of thinking it rather too soon, And waiting till after the mowing! Or had I hinted, out under the stars, That I knew a story worth‘hearing, Lingering to put up the pasture bars, Nor waited to do the shearing! Now the barn is full, and so is the bin, But I’ve grown wise without glory, Since love is the crop not gathered in; For my neighbor told her the story. News Notes. From last week’s “Vindicator” we get these items: Mr. Jos. F. Tannehill has sold liis farm of 200 acres, near Staunton, to Mr. Win. Wholey at $47.50 an acre, cash.

Soon yon quiet vessel’s motion, Soon shall yonder rolling ocean, Throw my spirit o’er the past Closing now between us fast. Bid me, then, if aught be spoken, Bid me cheerily, "Good-night;” So that, waking, aye unbroken Memory link it with the light. Thus shall every morning cheer me, firing thine image ever near me, With that word that seems to say, **Part we only for a day.” Yet I know not why I ask thee Now to play a hollow part; No, I will not, will not task thee Thus to vail an acliing heart. Truth and thou were never parted; Fart not now, though, broken-hearted, Truth thy faltering tongue compel Bitterly to say, "Farewell 1” Speak it, then, nor stay the sadness Brimming now within thine eyes; Weep, oh weep—nor think it madness Thus thy burning tear to prize. Man to woe was ever plighted; Then be mine with thine united. Oh, ’twere b...

THE HOME DOCTOR* Facts Worth Stsmbtrlii. Sudden deaths do not come from heart disease, one case in twenty, but from congestion of the lungs or brain, or from apoplexy. More die from congestion of the lungs than of the brain, and more of congestion of the brain than from apoplexy. Sudden death from heart disease is usually caused by rupture of some large artery near the heart; from congestion of the lungs, by instantly stopping the breath; from congestion of the brain, by causing pressure on the brain which paralyzes and instantly destroys life; from apoplexy, by hemorrhage in the brain. Heart disease most frequently results from neglected or improperlytreated rheumatism. It more often follows mild rheumatism than the severe kind, because severe rheumatism receives prompt treatment, while the mild form is often neglected and left to work its way to the heart. Persons who suppose themselves suffering from heart disease because they have pain in the region of the heart, or palpitation,...

So Goes the World. When I wear the cap and belle, Many friends have I? Unto careless, merry hearts. Merry hearts reply. Just as this old earth of ours Dimples in a hundred flowers, When above, in summer’s hours, Laughs a summer sky. When grief bides with me, alas! Not a friend have I; Sad hearts meet on every aide With a cold “Good-bye.” Just as this old earth of ours Parts with all the drooping flowers, When above, in autumn hours, Glooms a somber sky. —Margaret Eytinge.

WORKS OF WISDOM. Where children are there is the golden age. We must learn to infuse sublimity into trifles; that is power. The world does not require so much to be informed as to be reminded. Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action. Slumber not in the tents*of your columns. The world is advancing, advance with it. We should do nothing for revenge, but everything for security; nothing for the; past, everything for the present and future. What men want is not talent, it is purpose; in other words, not the power to achieve, but will to labor. I believe that labor, judiciously and continuously applied, becomes genius. We should have gratitude enough to acknowledge the obligations we are under to the great and heroic of antiquity, and independence enough not to believe what they said, simply because they said it. Every young man should understand that he should not care a button foe his likes and dislikes, but should do what ought to be done, in s...
