We have boldly adopted the title of CArPITOLIAN for our paper, because of our faith in the restoration of the Capi tal to Baton Rouge. One must be deaf or blind, who cannot see and hear the unmistakable voice of the people courageously rising in their might to rejuvenate fair Louisiana. After many years of suffering and submissiveness, the men from among whom sprang the heroes of Manassas, Shiloh, Murfreesboro, Port Hudson, Mansfieeld, the far off Shenandoah, the Cemotery Hill of Gettysburg and the heights of Chicamauga, whose deeds have classed Louisiana's sons among the matchless soldiers of our South land,aremoving tumultuously forward to overturn the humiliating work of our former oppressors.

We are proud, indeed, to have occa eion to herald to the brave and open hearted population of our city and parish, that after a careful review of the names of the delegates to the con vention, coupled with the expressions of the press of the State, we have reached the firm belief that the popu lar verdict rendered in November last in favor of the restoration of the Cap ital to our beautiful city will, beyond question, be sustained by an over whelming majority. While the Crescent City is destined soon to resume her mighty sway as the great queen of the commerce of the southwest, through the medium of the railway lines that within a few months will unite her with the very heart of the Lone Star State, that growing and mighty commonwealth that lies contiguous to our western frontier, an event that will bring to its marts the n...

OVER THE UAKISTERS. t Over the banistersibends a face, Darlingly sweet and beguiling; Somebody stands in careless grace, And watches the picture, smiling. The light burns dim in the hall below; Nobody sees her standing, t Saying good night again, soft and slow, f Half way up to the landing. I Nobody, only the eyes of brown, Tender and full of meaning, That smile on the fairest face in town, Over the banisters leaning. Tired and sleepy, with drooping head, I wonder why she lingers, And when all the good nights are said! Why, somebody holds her fingers Holds her fingers and draws her down, . Suddenly growing bolder, Till her loose hair drops its masses brown Like a mantel over his shoulder. Over the banisters soft hands fair Brush his cheek life a feather; Bright brown tresses and dusky hair Meet and mingle together. There's a question asked, there's a sweet caress, She has flown like a bird from the hallway, But over the banisters drops a "Yes" That will brighten the world for him al...
