Blow, winds of summer on the grass 'Of meadows green my love must pass What time he comes tome; Shine, sun of summer, on the way That he, full-hearted, takes to-day Toward our trysting-tree. Sing, happy lark, in God's blue sky, Lift thou thy thrilling voice on high In carol strong and clear; Sing, lark, and I'll sing with thee, Becanse good things have come to me, Because love's life is dear. Because my sometime lonely heart Is love-elected to a part Among earth's favored few; Because my lately empty hand Is filled to-day by love's command With blossoms of love's hue. Because I wear upon my breast The flower my lover loveth best, The flower he gave tome; A cark carnation, velvet red, By moonlight gathered from its bed, When none was near to see. A sweet carnation, whose perfume Is richer even than its bloom Of kingly, crimson hue; And as the flower is sweet above Its summer fellows, so his love, More than most love, is true. I wear my blossom o'er a heart Content to ta...

On last Thursday, after two days of carefld consideration, nnder thle advice of that distinguished attorney Col. Andrew S. Herron, the City Council finally adopted the ordinance authorized by the new Constitution as the method through which Baton Rouge is to subscribe $35,000 towards rebuilding the Capitol destroyed in 1862. Bonds covering the above amount are to be issued, bearing eight per cent. interest, payable semi-annually by a fiscal agent to be appointed from time to time by the Council. These bonds are to be taken up within twenty years by a sinking fund which will be applied to take up at least one-twentieth of the principal each year. To ensure the payment of the prin cipal and interest the entire revenues of the city are pledged, and especially the receipts of the steamboat landing and the market house,which are m...

A California Duel.
