CITY NOTES, A youth went forth to serenade The lady whom he loved the best, And at her house his footsteps stayed Until the moon had gone to rest. He warbled till the morning light Came dangling o'er the hilltop's rim; But no fair maiden blessed his sight, And all seemed dark and drear to him. With heart aglow and eyes ablaze He drew much nearer than liefore, When, to his horror and amaze, lie saw "To Let" upon the door. "J E. W. Green advertises veal for every day this week. "Weather indications? Well, now, you ain't going to catch us with any such question as that. Mrs. J. A. Smith is selling her entire stock of millinery goods at bargains now.

The steamship City of Palatka did not come in Sunday on account of the gale blowing from the northeast. The sea was too rough for her to make tho trip in safety. Mr, J. T. Connover is sinking a four inch well in Colonel Hart's garden, and has already reached a depth of nearly two hundred feet. A great deal of wa ter is already llowing from the well. The schooner Wolston, loaded with one hundred and iifty thousand brick and fifty tons of hay for Mr. M. F. Forward, is stuck on the St. Johns bar. It will probably be in Palatka in a day or two. Mr. J. II. Merry day is about finishing up the paint work on the Academy of the Sacred Heart, and the handsome ap pearance that building now makes is a compliment to Mr. Merryday's work manship. The druggists of Palatka wish the pub lie to understand that on Sundays the stores will be opened from 8 to 11 a. in. and from 5 to 8 p. m. Palatka is so healthy now that these gentleman wish for leisure to attend church. H. A. Meyer fc Co.'s gray horse exer cised himself by trying his speed down Lemon street, yesterday, without the as sistance of a driver. He took it compar atively leisurely, carrying the wagon around the square without doing any damage, Messrs. Eislerand Fisher, artists, from Germany, are at the Westmoreland, and will remain in Palatka for several weeks. They have been up the Ocklawaha river taking in its beautiful scenery, and will no doubt transfer to canvass some of the more striking scenes of that locality. We are all eagerly looking forward to the grand ball of tne 10th. Among the elegant toilets of our belles will glitter the gold aed buttons of the Guards. The new oflieers will parade in their new fin ery, and we want it distinctly understood that all the glitter will be gold. The brass will not shine. Messrs. V. I). Ackerman and Ii. Ker sting will leave to-day for St. Augustine, from which point they will make their way down the coast and to the Great Bahama Islands. They will be absent some five weeks, and have promised to keep The News posted as to their adven tures and successes. Proceedings of the Jury of Inquest. The jury met promptly at 2 p. m. of June 2nd according to adjournment. Capt. Bravo, of the Anita, was recalled and exhibited a map of the river in the vicinity of Bulfalo Bluff, and explained the diagrams showing tho courses of the steamers. Capt. Lucas, of the Princess, was recalled, and testified that he was constantly at the wheel from the time of leaving Palatka till he left his boat to rescue Mr. Miller. Mr. Aliiiott F. Wade, mate of the Ani ta, testified that when he first saw the Princess loth lights could lie distin guished: suddenly he saw only the green light and rushed to the side, realizing that a collision w;u imminent. He saw the lmats come together. One of the deck hands said there was a man in the wheel, and the witness immediately after heard some one cry out in the river. He asked the Captair to back the txxit, which was done, and the life-boat picked up Mr. Miller. The witness looked care fully for any other party who might be in the water. Witness holds licenses lioth as master and pilot on the St. Johns; is of opinion that always there was ample room letween the Anita and the east shore for the largest steamers to pass. Heard only one whistle from the Princess, and one in answer from the Anita. According to the rules, with only these signals, the Princess should have pa.ss.ed letween the Anita and the east shore, and should have never crossed the Anita's bow. Capt. Ii. J. Adams ' testified that with the exchange of one whistle only each boat should have gone to the right; there was good water near the eastern shore. On being questioned by the Coroner, witness said he had often seen R. W. Lucas in such condition that he was un fit to be entrusted with the command of a passenger steamer. The jury then adjourned till seven a. m. on June 3rd, when the Coroner, at torney for the State, and jury will visit the location of the accident. Their ver dict will probably be rendered to-day. The dry weather in some sections of the State is gettiug the best of the grow ing potato. THE MAYOA'S 3IATIXEE. Several Plain Drunks, Some Disor derlies, and a Few Unfortunates. The Mayor's Court yesterday morning was the center'of attraction to a large number of our colored population, the said attraction being the trial of thirteen of the said population for various offenses against the ordinances of the city. Not one of the guilty ones escaped the May or's attention, and the usual dollars and costs. The first one that pranced to the front was E. Givens, charged with being dis orderly, who was fined $1 and costs. The next was Thomas Burner, guilty of the same offense, and the same fine was entered up against him. Ben Lewis was fined .$1 and costs for a plain drunk. John Head, for imbibing too freely of "Florida tanglefoot" and making too much noise, had to pay $1 Q and costs. William Ii. Redmond got it into his head that he was tho cock of the walk, and started a little walking match down Lemon street at a "go-as-you-please"' gait. He tried to climb right o er every one who happened to bo in his path, and tho Mayor climbed him to the tune of $2 and costs. Cyrus Small got on a little drunk, and as he did not create much of a dieturb ance, he was let olT for $1 and costs. Mary Riley, for raising h ah ! a dis turbance at a negro festival out in New Town, was let oil for 1 and costs.

Putnam Calhoun, Chairman. Club Precinct 8. Palatka, Fla.,Mav 26, 1884. White Sulphur Springs is a new town located on the Suwanee river, 12 miles from Lake City and 7 miles from Wel born, from which place there is a daily hack line. Since the completion of the hotel the place is becoming very popular as a resort. The bath at the spring is one of the finest in the country, and its medicinal properties are said to be equal to Hot Springs, Ark A Virginia Belle' A Virginia reporter thus describes the belle of a ball he recently attended: Complexion, neither blonde nor brunette, hovering between the dawn and sunrise of a summer's morning; eyes, besides whose arrows Cupid's keenest darts are only fit for killing frogs or clams eyes that drive the very stars of heaven dis tracted with envy. Lashes more glori ously silken than ever fringed the lids of Oriental houri. Hair in which 10,000 sunbeams nestle, darkly bright, fine as gossamer threads, but forming a net-work which scores of masculine strugglers have found powerful as the green withes that bound Delilah's Samson. Matchless in grace. Marvelously gifted in wovvan's grand endowment tongue. Tones soft as the softest warbling of a flute on tropic seas at twiligat. A polar star in every throng, toward whom all mascu line, compasses point with constant fin ger. A magnet strong enough to turn a whole battalion topsy-ttirvy and bring the planets rushing from their far-off spheres. Lovelier, more enchanting crea tures never flitted through the paradise of rarest poet's dream. Describe her? Wore my pen a quill from the pinion of the loftcst seraph that burns in gleaming glory, and dipped in the refulgent radi ance of the rainbow's fountain, it would be impossible. Raphael's ghost, after j three centuries of celost ial practice, would j faint at the task of trying to depict her j transcendent loveliness. i The Changes in the Election Districts ! of Putnam County.
