BY THE DOVE-COT, The place around her is enchanted; Sweetly she pauses, troubled, haunted, For all the air seems full of love, Music of billing and of cooing, .Music of little winged things wooing Around her, under and above. With rosy ears and tingling fingers, Like Venus 'mid her doves she lingers. Her bosom rich with honied things, The gladness round her has no measure, The warm air palpitates for pleasure, Troubled by white and waving wings. What fitter time to creep and woo her, When light and sound and love thrill through her, Stirring her gentle bloodl ike wine, All gentle things that round her hover Conspire, 0 happy, happy, lover.

THE RIVER PRESS. 3 PARIS AT TWO EPOCHS. The French Capital Now and a Century Ago, [London Truth.] JFigaro has executed cleverly an ingenious idea in taking, on New Year's day, its readers a hundred years back. It shows them, from the gazettes of a hundred years ago, what the c ;urt was doing at the Trianon, Marly Dhol sy, la Muetta, (now the habitation of a piano manufacturer's he rs,) Versailles, and Paris. It tells them exact!y how Rochambeau d'Es taing Lafayette and Lanzun Biron, of scam pish memory, were passing the winter in the New England states, then engagrd in "Boycotting" King George's friends, and fighting handfuls of King George's troops. Madame Campan is extensively drawn upon for local color in the parts of the journal de voted to court life. She had the intellect and style of a femme de chambre, but as she saw closely all that she described, extracts of her memoir are interesting. The year 1780 was marked by the death of the queen's mother, the empress of Germany, and...

THE RIVER PRESS. 7 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 PaEss.] NUMBER V. With the rise of Peter the Great Russia en tered a new era, which has been one of con solidation and national development, and left behind the era of anarchy and petty sover eignty, and, although an occasional court in trigue or attempt at insubordination occur red, they could not overthrow the central au thority, which with cruel might stamped out every effort and extended its iron authority and power. There were but two classes in Russia worthy of the name at this time, which were divided as noble and serf-a very small middle class of merchants and artisans existed, but exerted no perceptible in fluence. Agriculture was in a very rude con dition, and trade, which never had had much development, was all but annihilated during the three centuries of exhausting civil war which had desolated the country.

Approaching Ceremonies Over the Unveil ing of Farragut's Statue. The Great Missonri still Rising. CoaNCIL BLUFFS, April 25.-After a con tinuous rise since Wednesday the Missouri river became stationary here yesterday. The water on the overflowed districts, however, has been rising slowly all day, and now covers more territory than ever, the river being fully seven miles wide. The danger, however, is thought to be past, and by to-morrow it is expected the water will slowly begin to lower and recede. Yesterday the river fell an inch, which is encouraging. Several hundred water-bound passengers departed yesterday on outgoing trains, starting from a point several miles be yond the city limits. It is estimated that fifteen hundred people are driven from their homes, many of them staying with friends in the higher parts of the town, and several ...

Too old for innecence. too young for rest, Ny troubled spirit wanders to thyfeet, Beloved spring !-with ever new delight, I feel thy heart's strong beat.

OLD AND NEW RlUSSIA. A Brief History of its Political and Sooia Growth, in Connection With the Rise of the Romanoffs. [Written for the RIVED PBEEP.] NUMBER VI. It is unnecessary in the scope of these ar ticles to further consider the history of Rus sia until the beginning of the period of the Crimean war, when signs of internal life and agitation began to be manifest; and the vast hive of people began to show signs of na t:ional consciousness and individual power. From Peter to Nicholas it was more a work of developing internal cohesiveness rather than an individual political life, by cement ing with a common religious bond, and a common national sympathy, the discordant social elements from which the nation was created. With some important exceptions, the influence of the czars had been exerted in the effort to stimulate individualism, and to introduce the activity and civilized meth ods of Western Europe, and to educate the people into a newer life. There was little fertility of t...
