Miss Amelie Elves has again been dropping into poetry. To the ‘Washington Critic’ she contributes a “pome” called “An Autumn Dream.” The following chaste quatrain appears to have been written under moonshine inspiration in the pas-sionate-poetess country, where harvests are reaped in mid-winter : Tbe naked bills lie wanton to the broizc, The fields are nude, tbo groves unfrocked. Giro arc tbs shivering limbs cl shanieiers trees; What wonder is it that the corn is shocked! Naughty Miss Rives.'
