The air is drowsing in n swoon, Unbroke of sound, while golden rays Of sun divide the Afternoon In sleepy hues and Millcn haze Across the fields, through woody ways, A faint breeze stirs with listless feet; The beetle drones, the rosebush sways MetbinliA the suinmcr-time is sweet. I hear the bee's low murmurous tune As from pale bloom to bright he strays; He comes too oft but leaves too soon, No single blossom's love allays ; The brook with broken bank-weeds plays, Fallen flowers ami breeze-blown blades of wheat; Wee birds sing little songs of praise Methinka the summer-time is sweet. Anon the night of leaf-lit Juno Brings down to many a flowery maze The cooling kisses of the moon To case the spiteful stings of days; The fields lie bathed in mellow blazo Of silver; now I haste to greet The true love that my heart obeys Melhiuks the summer-time is sweet.

He is quite a noted character, having been captured five times, it is said, since he entered the Union army, but he has never as yet been exchanged or paroled, lie gets away every time. Yes terday was a day of strife in "Sumter Prison." The police have grown tyrannical, as I have previously stated, and are daily putting on the airs of a titled uobiliiy. Starved as the prisoners are, they are not disponed to tamely hear it. Yesterday morning, at one of the springs, a policeman clubbed a man without due provocation. Spirited resistance was of fered, and both combatants were speedily rc-enforccd, the prisoner being assisted by numerous friends. The melee grew to large proportions, and the result was that an im portant riot took place, in which neither faction had much to boast of. Both were pretty veil whipped. Throughout the entire day brawls were in progress almost every where. We are all so ir...
