A WINTE. EVENING IN THE FENS. Now ,he sun sinks the distant swamp below, Steals back its golden streamers of the light; Old Norwich pile has lost its burnished glow, And all has vanished in the approaching night. In dusky groups the slender poplars stand, And far off rear their forms against the sky; While clustering pollards mark the level strand, Or frozen brooks that one time rippled by. The shrill north wind its Old World legend sings. Forsakes the Arctic fastness of its throne, And bears the dread Ice Maiden on its wings, To range the marsh and make the Fens its own. Again the frost has numbed the leaden clouds ; A myriad snow-shaped forms are flitting past; The hungry wild fowls wheel in timid crowds, And scream a piercing burden to the blast. Pile up the fir logs, pile upon the fire! Our limbs are cold; this evening gloom appalls; That ruddy blaze shall flash its beams yet higher, And chase the thousand shadowS from the walls! PERSONAL AND IMPEB.SONAL. A man has been offered ...

THAT IS ALL. There hangs a sabre and there a rein. With a rusty buckle and green curb chain, A pair cf spurs on the old gray wall And a moldy saddle-well, that is all! Come out to the stable! It is not far, The moss-Frown door is hanging ajar, Look within! There's an empty stall Where once stood a charger-well, that is all! The good, black horse came riderless home, Flecked with blood drops as well as foam; See yonder hillock where dead leaves fall, The good black horse pined to death-that's all! All ? Oh, God! It is all I can speak; Question me not! I am old and weak! His sabre and saddle hang on the wall A ni hi,: h1nrr ninpd to drlath! T havP t-l,13 von all.

THE CITIZENS MEETING. A Discussion of the Barker and White Sul phur Springs Road Project, and an Unanimous Opinion of its Favor able Features and Practi cability. The meeting at the Court House on Satur day evening was quite well attended, and the audience seemed bent on seeing the road pro ject successfully inaugurated. After consid erable buzzing and preliminary discussion the meeting was called to order by unanimously electing T'. E. Collins chairman, and James Arnoux secretary. Mr. Collins stated the object of the meet iing in : few pointed sentences : It was vi tally necessary, if Benton was ever to de velope into mrre than a mere trading poet, that it connect itself with its tributary coun try by means of common roads. None were more necessary at present than the one under contemplation from Benton to White Sulphur Springs by way of the Barker min# s It was necessary for the people of Smith River, Chestnut valley and the Belt district, and it was even more so to the de velopme...

NO GO. Sighed Mr. Jones, "My dear Miss May, I dreamed an auctioneer, one day, Cried 'going, going, gone.' I thought I was the slave he sold, And you-you bought me with thy gold To kneel before thy throne." "You're easy sold," smiled sweet Miss May, "For when I heard the fellow say, You're 'going, going, gone,' I thought, alas ! he little knows He's selling one who never goes And-" Mr. Jones had flown. FLOATING FANCIES. The memory of Burns-remains after swallowing a boiling hot Scotch. Why is the earth like a blackboard? Be cause the children of men multiply upon the face of it.

ISABELLA 1I. A Pen Sketch of the Life and Habits of the Spanish Ex-Queen. " [London Truth.] This august lady is fat, fair and fifty, also frolicsome. As a child she may have dreamed of happiness; as a woman she has had to be content with amusement. To do her justice, neither pleasure nor dissappoint ment has succeeded in souring her temper. She is a kindly soul, very kind indeed to those she likes and not too spiteful to her enemies. Ferdinand VII. rendered his daughter but an ill turn when he revoked the Salic law, which had been in force under the Bourbon dynasty. As a simple Infanta of Spain, Isa bella would probably have enjoyed life more than as Queen of that faction-ridden country. One may pass over the fact that Ferdinand also bequeathed a couple of civil .wars and a standing prettxt for rebellion to his unhappy people, for Bourbon selfishness is proverbial. This King, by the way, is famous for having made almost as many matrimonial ventures as our Henry VIII. During a life o...

Nzw YoRx, March, 14.-A London spe cial gives the following details of the assassi nation of the Czar : The city was startled by the announcement that the Czar had been mortally wounded by the explosion of a bomb, thrown by assassins, while out driv ing in the forenoon. At first it was supposed that the report was a canard, as the Emper or's assassination has been so often announc ed and so often denied since the Nihilists have began to compass his death, which was quickly followed by a full account of the tragedy, Lord Dufferin, British Ambassa dor at St. Petersburg, had in the meantime informed the foreign office of the affair, and his dispatches were at once forwarded to the Queen.

THE AGE OF INNOOENCE. Drear wEre the world without a child, Where happy infant never smiled, Nor stirr'd a mother's love; We sooner could the flowerets spare, The tender bud and blossom fair, Or breath of springtime in the air, Or light of dawn above I No Monarch rules with lordlier grace Than helpless infancy its place Soon narrowed to a span; Outstretching hands that claim as right All things thatloom upon the sight And reeking naught of greater might That will discrown the man. O, little k'ng, 0, little queen, You rule not with the golden sheen And pomp of larger cotrts, But soverign is your gentle sway, Strong hearts and willing homage pay, Love scatters garlands on your way When your young life disports. No poet utters a daintier word Than oft from lisping lip is heard, No wit moves purer mirth; In mimic satire babes grow bold And quaint surprises they unfold, As first their untaught eyes behold The wondrous shows of earth.

RIVER RIFFLES. The steamer Helena will leave Yankton on or about the first of April, will touch Bis marck on the 9th, run up light and reach Benton on the 19th. The Benton will kick the waters from St. Louis next Saturday, probably loaded through .to this place. She has been on the dock all winter, her cabin refurnished entirely, and she will win new lauerls for speed, comfort and safety. The Black Hills, a new steamer purchased by the Power Line this year, will start from Sioux City on the 9th. She is a prettily ar ranged craft from bow to keel, and cleaves the Muddy with the fastest of 'em. The Butts trails the Helena from Yankton on the 9th, under command of Andy John son, and will run her gang plank ashore here May 1st. She's a nobby craft and usually carries a gallant crew. The Red Cloud, one of the largest and most elegantly appointed packets that stems the waves of the mighty Missouri, will turn her wheel Bentonward the last of March.

OLD AND NEW RUSSIA. A Brief History of its Political and Social Growth, in Connection With the Rise of the Romanoffs, [Written for the RIVER PRESs.] NUMBER I. THEn system presented by Russian national development, and which the death of the Czar has brought into prominence, is inter esting not only from its own peculiarites, but has an important bearing on the future, show ing, as it does, the natural growth of the nation and popular life out of the most incon grous elements, and subject to peculiar and distressing vicessitudes. It is popular to view the Russian au tocratic system as something hideous, and opposed to every essential of democratic liber ty, because of the general habit of associating all that is not representative as despotic ;- forgetting that this very despotism, as it is generally understood, may be representative, and also forgetting that a representative sys tem may be the essence of despotism; and forgetting the truism that strength is liberty, and weakness des...

TIMfE. "Why sitt'st thou by that ruined hall, Thou aged earl, so stern and gray ? Do'st thou its former pride recall, Or ponder how it passed away ?" II "Know'st thou not me ?" the deep voice cried; 'No longer enjoyed, so oft missed Alternate, in thy fickle pride, Desired, neglected, and accursed! III "Before my breath, like blazing flax, Man and his marvels pass away : And changing empires wane and wax, Are founded, flourish and decay. iv "Redeem mine hours-the space is brief While in my glass the sand grains shiver, And measurless thy joy or grief, When time and thou shall part forever." THAT ONE DOLLAR BILL. How it did rain that November night. None of your undecided showers, with hesi tating intervals, as it were, between; none of your mild, persistent patterings on the roof, but a regular tempest, a wild deluge, a rush of arrowy drops and a thunder of opening floods ? Squire Pratlet heard the rattling up against the casements, and drew his snug easy chair closer to the fire-a g...

THE MAJOR. A major loved a maiden so, His warlike heart was soft as Do. He oft would kneel to her and say: "Thou art of life my only Re. Ah, if but kinder thou wouldst be, And sometimes sweetly smile on ti. Thou art my life, my guiding star, I love thee near, I love thee Fa. My passion I cannot control Thou art the idol of my Sol." The maiden said, "Oh, fie! Ask pa. How can you go on thus? Oh, La!" The "major" rose from bended knee, And went her father for to Si 'vie father thought no match was finer, The "major" once had been a "minor." They married soon, and after that Dwelt in ten rooms all on "one flat." So happy ends the little tale, For they lived on the grandest "scale." FLOATING FANOIES.

FUNERAL OF THE CZAR. Splendid Description by Charles Agustus Sala of the Mournful Event, Mr. Sala, the renowned correspondent of the London , tandard, telegraphed the follow ing description of the Czar's funeral from St. Petersburg: I have just been a spectator of one of the most magnificient, most impressive, most pa thetic pageants, which in the course of -a lengthened career and accustomed to the pomps and vanities of regality, from royal bridals and feasts to royal funerals, I have ever been privileged to set eyes on. Three canons fired from the fortress directed the various mourners to get ready and take their ,places. A similar salute about midday gave the signal to start, when a sable standard bearing in white the initals of the murdered monarch was unfurled over the fortress, the artillery begun five minute guns, and all the bells in the city began to toll. The whole route was lined by troops of the garrison, immediately behind whom the public were permitted to stand. No gal...
