The Blues and Warwick Park.

The R. L. I. Blues, with the Washington Grays, of Philadelphia, will spend the 10th of May at Warwick Park, on James river. This pretty pleasure-ground is near where the northern end of the Confederate pontoon-bridge terminated, and is opposite to and just a little west of Drewry’s Bluff, or Fort Darling, as “our friends the enemy” insisted upon calling it. The military and their friends will go down to the park on the barge Chimborazo.
