Tbe Metropolis is informed from i moft authoritative source that tbe governor will return from I'enver next week and will soon Hereafter iuue Lis cs.ll for a spec; session. The soufe from win tlie above oornes leaves no doubt : i to tlie gov ernor's Intention, as it emanates to positive statement made by United Slates Senator Hilton 'o a cituen prominent in Florida n.r .irs and who :n turn gave tbe infi : n ation this mc-tning to Tlie Metro o!i.
