At the liulo Tillage of Higbtuwu, in Highland county (bet* (er kuowu is Crab Bottom) two springs buret from the rocks. A slight eleva tion separates thorn ; but the volume of wiier coming Jroiu both scctus to be iusignifieaut. And still, when looking at oue, you think of the parody? "And I'll go do#a to Richmond?

"All quiet along the I'oto ?ac to-night, Bxcepi beie uud there 11 stray picket Is shut, as be walks ou his tan to tad fro, fly ? rifleman hid in the thicket I" These two springs are tuo head-waters of the Putouiae and James lliver*. Diverging from their source, they ?trike off towards tide-water, gathering in the siusller streams on (heir route, until they become mighty rivers, upon whose bosoms float the greitest tri umphs o* msratime architecture. It is worth the traveler's while, ou a journey to Staunton by the 'pike, to put up at "old man Hravuer's," and visit this historic spot. jfc#* A IUmarkadlb Spuing,?Dc Jk>i 10, (Mmer County, at a Hummer fitturt.?Wo desire to present to all whom it msy concern an item'of in* terest.

Out in tho North west?in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the Territories, tho snow was so deep as to suspend trarel entirely. Over in Vtrgiuia they suffered about os we did; and even on tho tide-water in North Carolina, Virgiuia und Mary land, tho fruit and vegetables are de stroyed.

They were acting under their oaths, as bonorablo gentlemen, for the best interests of their constitu outs; and although their territory is out of our bailiwick,wo know that their course ia fully endorsed by their people But we would mildly suggest to the I'luindtuler man that if ho assorts that Wellington V Cbidester, tho delegate from Lewtj county, over ''joinod bauds with the Radicals and sold out to Wheeling," he will have tho best op* portunity to be set up in tho boot bun* itiets that bo has bud sinco ho left Flemington College.?It will certainly bo news too, to Senators Qo(f und Ben* uett, and Delegates Long, Reynolds and Furnsworth to hear that they,talso, "sold out to the Radicals."
