A Facetious editor.

--The Charlottesville Chronicle acknowledges a present of a "nice piece of venison," and thereupon remarks:

‘ "These are the bright spots in an editor's life. We intend to give a supper off of that venison, and propose to make up a party of ten others (a round dozen in all), each of whom shall send some trifle suitable for the occasion. Let's see: one may bring a piece of mutton; another, a turkey; a third, some celery and pickles; a fourth, a ham of bacon; a fifth, a basket of eggs and some apples; a sixth, some apple brandy, &c. We propose to furnish some hot water and read one of our editorials.
