R. MANNING. Chairman County Central Committee. ! Democrats of Carroll County What are you doing towards the organ isation of the Democratic party here, in view of the approaching Presidential elec tion ? If you are doing nothing, which ia probably the case, t chat do you propose to . do, and when do you propose to begin to do it? NOW is the time for you to be- ; gin the work of organisation. If you wait until the heat of the contest has fixed . men’s minds on one side or tbe other of the Presidential question, there is far less chance of imbuing them with the truth, j or of breaking through tbe incrustation of j political predilection or partisan prejudice. The time of beginning the work, and the mode of accomplishing it, are subjects for immediate consideration. We find some very excellent suggestions upon the sub- , ject in hand, in a late issue of the Ha-: gerstown Twice-a- Weqk, which we repro duce for your consideration. That jour- j nal says: **Our political opponents get the start of i us in nearly every campaign. They com- ' mence to work sooner. They do more for | (heir newsjHtpers. So far they are ahead' of i ua in active work in the centennial presiden- j tial canvass. Now, since they possess the I advantage of all the Federal offices, it is very j unwise on the part of Democrats to let them i gain also an advantage in the circulation of j newspapers and the organnuuton commit* toes and clubs. A Democratic committee to | every district of every county of every Stale ' should bo organised for debate and cicada- i lion of Democratic newspapers. This com- • railtee, or club, should make a canvass and ' induce every voter in its township to subscribe 1 to one or more of the beat of tke Democratic j papers. If any voter is too poor, or too in different to do so, tbe club should pay for and ! send a paper to him. Then, every well-to-do, well-disposed Dem- i ocrat should subscribe for from three to five ; Democratic papers for this year. It is not to the point at all to say ho can not read so ' many; he can hand them out to his neighbors. The money will be well expended, unco it j will make Democratic publishers comfortable and more vigilant. If yo# want an editor to ■ write well and bravely place him above any concern where he is to get money to pay cur- 1 rent expenses. How can an editor read, think and write to any great purpose if he is compelled to spend one-third of his time in duuning delinquent subscribers and another third in beating up new ones ? In calling attention to this affair we are simply doing our duty to the party. It is the affair of every Democrat. W advise for the good of all. We wish to promote the cause of Democracy, and know but little can be accomplished unless Democrats all work together. No Democrat can work for this i journal without working for himself and his country. He should, therefore, deal lib erally and patriotically with it. He can strengthen our hands and build up the cause. Take our advice and act upon it at once: get your fellow-Democrats to do likewise and the most happy results will follow in due time." One word more, ip addition to whatfi bo well said above by the Twice-a- Week , in reference to the formation of local | neighborhood clubs and the circulation of I newspapers. There is no more effective mean of organization than the one pointed out in this suggestion. In the first place, organize a club in every village, or in every neighborhood, at a place most convenient for it* members. Choose officers, and re port organization to a central club to be organized at the county scut, and you will be supplied with documents and papers during the campaign. As to the impor tance of circulating newspapers as ad juncts in a well regulated campaign, there , is not one of you who does not know that I your local newspaper is the organ and | mouth-piece which speaks for you and i commends your cause to the public, seek ing constantly with unflagging zeal to dis seminate political truth, and keep the banner of the Democratic party in the as cendant. The Republican party, in Car roll county, evinces more wisdom and more zeal, in this way, than the Democratic party does. In every campaign they send their party organ, the Sentinel, into every household, into every nook and corner of tbe county where it can find entrance. Not so with the Democrats, they have never spent a dollar for the circulation of the Democratic Advocate, but have left its circulation to the efforts of its I publisher, and to individual exertion alone, j How was it with the Republican party and I the Reformers in the campaign of last | fall ? Was not the Sentinel sent at the | party expense all over the county, while ! the Advocate fought the battle against the ! insidious attacks of the enemy unaided j and alone, except by tbe support of here i and there a zealous individual. Let this | not be so again. Form your clubs in every neighborhood, send lists of new names, accompanied by the cosh, for three, six,twelve month,. as the com may be, and circulate the Admtatr in every nook j and comer of the county. Send, also, list of officers of local club* for publication in ; the Achoeatr, and the Central Club in Westminster Vtll provide every club in with documents and newspa- ■ distinct ton of being ilia Banner CKth of yftotfon and hurls its masked batteries eottt*ny. The O&Jkuard. When Napoleon Bonaparte was in the I hey-day of hit military renew a he had a crack corps in hi, ar*y. that was organised ;md drWcd ontler Ilia immediate supervi | Mon, and kept always near his petaon. i When any special service was demanded I a requisition was generally made upon that corps. When, in hotly contested battles, the enemy stood firmly and stubliornly be fore his conquering legions, the Old Guard was at onco called in to Uceldu the for tunes of the day, and wherever they struck a blow for France, that blow generally sent the enemy reeling and in disorder. They were his own right arm of power, on which he relied for effective and decisive work, and seldom in vain. What Napoleon's Old Guard was to the French army, iu a military sense, the Old Guard of the De mocney is iu a political sense, to tbe op posing forces of the present Admiuistrs- I lion. There is the corps of liberal Ue • publicans, the corps of Independents, and ; a squad of raw recruits; but, all of them combined are incompetent to meet the cohorts of the Administration, without the Old Guard of the Democratic party. All agree that the concentration of these sev eral corpe would be more than a match for the hosts of the Republican phalanx, but ’how to concentrate them is the rub. In all the schemes and plans and spec ulations looking to that ond, the Oh! Guard has been left out of consideration. It had been supposed that the superior drill and discipline of that old corps could always j be relied upon in action, whether it was - consulted in the choice of leaders or not. I But the experience of 187- dissipated that idea. Nearly a million of iu most gallant men failed to respond to the bugle-cell of the alien leader set up over them in that memorable and most disastrous campaign. The same system of Uetica is in progreas now. It is vainly considered that any ; leader will do, except one from the ranks •of the Old Guard. By no means take au : old Bourbon—an old Copperhead—any : leader but that. A Liberal Republican, I an Independent, or any oue else might do, ; except a Democrat. Very well. The ' Democrats are much the largest corps of ; the grand army of the opposition, and, if ! they are not to be taken into the account in tbe selection of a leader, they will nut ’ follow. Political calculators and schemers, ' and convention manipulators, may reason ■ among themselves that the old Democrats ; will suppport this man or that; but, if he j is not of them, and has no sympathy with them, they will find their expectations ; vain. They will support a good and true i Democrat, but no other. They caunot be led by designing demagogues away from ' their organisation and its cherished priu- I eiples, under any plea or by any device whatever. New York is the battle ground, we arc told. We must take a candidate who can cany New Y'ork, or we cannot win. If New Y'ork will follow no other leader but one of her own citiseus, other States may be equally pervente. and refuse to follow a leader from New Y'ork. There would be as much reason for the one course as the other. New York cannot elect a pres ident of herself. The battle ground, there fore, will be as much in orery other State as in the Empire State. If she will not yield to them, neither should they yield to her. Let us hear no more, then, of this line of argument. When the con vention yeets, each State and each section j should lie prepared to lay down its own I favorite candidate, and its own precon ceived notions, for the common good. And there should be an earnest and dis interested inquiry as to what will best conduce to that end. If the nomination be made in that way,—if each State and I each division of forces defer to each other, instead of nubly and persistently taking their own conrae in contempt of all the rest—then tbe Old Guard will fall into line and keep step with the hast of those willing to band together for the overthrow of the corruption which has so strongly I entrenched itself in tbe high places of the Government. There would be no diffi i enlty, with a leader selected by mutual concession; and there would be no obstacle to such concession if demagogues would stood out of the way. If the Liberal Re publicans and the Independents distrust the Democrats, tbe Democrats will not trust them, and Democrats have no more to lose in sustaining a defeat than other men. If the country is to go down through maladministration and corruption, all must go down together. ' Opening of the Centennial Exhibition. Wednesday next, Che 10th inst. is the day appointed for the formal opening of the Centennial Exhibition, at Philadel | phia. The arrangements heretofore an | corniced will, no doubt, be fsilhftilly car | ried ant. The President and Congress will be in attendance, ond many visitors j from abroad. The ceremonies on the oo j casion will be quite imposing, but the : number of people in attendance will hardly j equal tbe vast concourse expected to be j present on the 4lh of July, the nation’e I great anniversary. Philadelphia will bo I the centre of attnotion for the next six months, and every American citiien who ; can do so, wiQ make a pilgrimage to tbe ■ birth-place of our national independence I before the Autumnal cloning of the great | International Exhibition, which is expect - i ed to exceed anything of the kind hereto j fore witnessed in any country. j Hon. Daniel Clarke, of Prince George’s I county, died at bis residence, in Balti ; more, on Monday, from paralysis.

He leaves a Wife, daighter of tbe lata ex-Gov. Pratt, and five children. His I life was insured for *40,000. j The Baltimore OaztHe thinks that the | "Old War-horse" sired by "Bourbon,” dam “Constitution,'’ will not be able to ] beat the "Great Unknown’’ at the St. j Louis races.

The resolutions further express a pref •erence for Hon. James G. Blaine as the Republican nominee for the Presidency, t and instruct the delegation to vote lor f him at Cincinnati. They also compliment t .Mr. Bristow for his efficiency us Secretary j, of the Treasury. The resolutions were * .adopted, and shortly after 11 o’clock the 1 '(‘Convention adjourned. The American claps its wings and gives 1 .1 • laud and prolonged crow. Fniton doubt ! less feels jubilant, having beaten the 1 Custarn House. He says the result is ’ i mdli all Republicans from principle [ Aenitf j t should be. . f National Reform. 1 t —— > j ,jj Lettfbe mantle of Grant full upon Blaine, j , . Bristow, Morton, Conkling, or whouiso- 1 . | ever Ujuay, it will still be the mantle of ; i I Grant, and only a covering for Grantism. i The country cannot afford another temi J. of Grantism, if it would put a stop to the ; | plundering, peculation and robbery, the j i ; unparalleled and unheard-of political vil lainy and corruption, that have made us, i as a nation, in this the hundredth year of our existence as a government, a byword aud a reproach throughout the civilized world. The Republican party has dis graced us us a people, iu the eyes of the whole world, and we are looked upon as a nation of thieves and robbers. Wc must “ inaugurate, by means of the ballot a com plete revolution, change the Administra tion, and purge the high places of the land, , as well as the low, of ©very vestige of I Grautiam, and discard from official posi i tion all who have received its taint. Noth ing short of this will restore the public service to a sound, honest and healthful administration. Nothing short of this ; will satisfy the popular demand for a thor ough, complete, and radical change, in every branch of the Government. From the President, down to the lowest tide* i waiter, all must feel the besom of reform, i and give place to purer and better men. The people demand a change. REFORM is the rallying cry of the Democracy, and i it will prove the slogan of victory from the j Atlantic to the Pacific; from the Rio Grande to Maine. In Indianapolis on Tuesday the Repub-1 licans elected their mayor by 4.000 major- • ky, and have elected eleven out of thirteen Councilmen. A serious riot occurred in 1 that city after the closing of the polls, in , which clubs, pistols and other weapons were freely used, resulting in the killing of at least one colored man and the serious injury of a number of others. The local election in New Orleans, on Monday, resulted in the choice of a Dem ocratic Mayor aud five Democratic to two Republican Councilmen. There was a hot contest, and it was the first Democratic success since 1868. The Baltimore Sun of Thursday says : Mr. 8. Teackle Wallis having been sug -1 gested as a candidate for Congress in the ‘ third congressional district, it is under stood he has refused to allow bis name to be used in that connection. Tbe sugges -1 tion came from a quarter which Mr. | 3 ! Wallis's friends generally would not have I I deem advantageous. Xho German Republican Club of Wush - { mg ton has issued an address to the Qcr s I man Radicals and Republicans of the b I Union, for a call of a German Republican .

Md. de ' livcred a historical sermon on the 80th of t January, at Sykesville, ami on the V*h of April at St. Barnabas, in aid of a permanent fund for educational purpose*, ami fur the building of an Academy lolh for primary, * classical and scientific instruction, at the village of Sykeaville, on Rectory hill. There , are two churches in the parish, within four ; t miles of each other, one at'Sykeaville and the other at Eldersburg, Holy Trinity, on ( the Liberty Pike, in this county. This last, t ’ named church is now in the first decade of its ! r second century. The ground on which it stands, was conveyer! by “John Welsh, of Baltimore county and Province of Maryland, ’ Gentleman, in a deed of gift to Abel Brown. Hubert Lewis, Kdward Dorsey and John Elder. Planters, for the purpose of building 1 thereon a Chapel of Ease for the Itenefit of Delaware Hundred,” This conveyance was ' made Bth day of March, A. D. 1771. one hundred and five years ago on the Bth of j March 187 b. From Mias Susanna Warfield, the venerated senior communicant of the Par- ; ish, Dr. Phnpt gleaned a few facts in rcla- tion to the history of the church at that place. It was formerly comprehended within the limits of the Parish of St. Thomas. During ] the Revolutionary war it was deserted by the * ministry, and stood for a long time in a rath i er dilapidated condition. Hut in 1842, at ! the suggestion of Bishop Whittinghum, it was I refitteuoy the ladies of the neighborhood. ' ; At the Diocesan Convention of 1848, a peti ’ j tion was presented for the formation of a j new Pariso under the title of Holy Trinity i i Parish, in Carroll and Baltimore counties, of . I which the chapel should become the Parish , 1 church. Ou the 81st of October following, * j the Bishop was petitioned to consecrate the ; renovated chapel ns the Parish church. The I 1 petitioners were Jesse Hollingsworth and [| Wm. H. Warfield. Wardens; W. W. War | : field, George P. Warfield, James Sykes, John Culhoon, Nicholas Dorsey and George . j W. Manro, Vestrymen, and Washington L. ' Bromley Register. Rev. I). Hillhouse Bad ' was the Rector, who resigned Nov. Ist, 1847. 5 j During Mr. Buel’s rectorship he held services j at Lisbon, in Howard county, and when the ‘ church at Westminster was erected, that was , 1 also taken into connexion, giving him lalnir i in all three neighborhoods. At n vestry 5 1 meeting held on the sth of July, 1847, Messrs. * James Sykes, Charles W. Hood, and Wm. I I H. Warfield, were appointed a building com r j mittee, to proceed in the erectiort of a chapel :at Sykeaville. The corner stone was laid 5 j June 11th, 1850, St. Barnabas day,by Bishop - Whittingham, and named after St. Barnabas, j It was finished and consecrated in DeqemWr 1851. Rev. Thomas J. Wyatt was their first 1 | Rector. The sermon abounds in historic facts of j much interest to those living in the vicinity t ! I of these churches. We umlerstand it is the ! i j intention to publish it in pamphlet form for ! I the benefit of the new enterprise started by ’ j Dr. Pigpot, which commends itself to the ■ generosity of chorch members in the Diocese ' i generally. Uorkoratiox Elhctiox.—'The annual elec tion for Mayor and Common Council took i place on Monday last. There were two tickets in the field, ono regularly nominated * at the citizens, muss meeting, on Thursday of last week, and the other independent.

As j we listened to the snarp tones of this lonely | harbinger of spring, we anticipated that rude winter had at length yielded the palm to the vernal queen. But we were again disappoint- i cd. On Sunday a chilling north-wester pre- i I vailed, growing colder as night approached. | On Monday morning ice was formed, and as : late as 10 o'clock of the day in the shade, I icicles eight inches in length were seen sum- j i pended to watering troughs, where water was 1 | dipping. I Some farmers here are planting corn, whilst others are wailing for warmer weather. Grass is unusually short, and a tight crop !of hay ia anticipated. The wheat crop pre { scuts a promising appearance, j Ephraim Garner. Esq., residing near this ) j place, lost a very valuable family horse a few days ago. The German Baptist brethren held their love-feast meeting at Pipe Creek Church on Thursday, 4th instant, which was attended by a large concourse of people. Measles arc prevailing here. j Sykesville Items.—We were favored with a fine rain on Friday last which greatly ini j proved the appearance of vegetation in our j section of the country. On Monday night, Ist instant, the Sykes ■ yille Building Association, No. 2, was organ ized, and the following officers elected for the j ensuing year : President, S. R. Duvall, Vice President, Joshua Barnes, Secretary, J. K. j Kearney. Treasurer, G. Wynkoop, Solicitor, W. A. Hammond. Board of Directors: M. J. McDonald, Beall Willis, W. P. Gorsuch, jr.. V. R.

A short time since a man representing him self as a repairer of clocks, visited our village j ’ and during his stay effected an entrance to j j Dr. C. Morehend’s office and carried off u i valuable case of surgical instruments. He I ! was followed to Beam’s mill, on the Liberty pike, and then “the trail was lost.” Home of our fanners will commence plant j ing corn the last of this week. Hood’s Mills Ithms.—For two weeks the B. & O. K.

Wo never know when we arc safe, but always on the lookout for danger, and as the travel will necessitate extra trains. We advise all to he very cautious. The Centennial ticket# hove arrived at our depot; round trip tickets SO.BU good for fifteen days. On Saturday night blankets, comforts, 4c., were in greet demand, if the almanac had not positively informed us it was the 80th of April, we should certainly supposed it the middle of January. Peaches, beyond all doubt, are gone, and I fear cherries also. It j seems to me all fruit must lie more or less i injured. McComas' plaster mill is grinding from ten to twenty tons per day.

Under the foregoing resolution, it was or dered that Wisner s school, in the .3d election district, be closed until further action be taken by this Board. On motion, it was then ordered that when t this meeting shall adjourn, it shall adjourn to meet on Monday, the sth day of June. A list of the trustees will be published next i week. v Si'Kixu.—Soring has sprung forth, and the beautiful buds and blossoms are ready to I spring.

Miss Lizzie Matthews has a fine school at Central Hall. The May Term ol the Circuit Court begins on Monday next. Mr. A. \l. Warner is paying oat silver in change al his storo. Strawberries are in bloom ; now get ready the cream and sugar. Law. politics, and the assessment, will bo on the tapis, next week. Licenses went off, on Monday, like hot cakes, and no remnants left. The Irving anniversary, lost Friday night, a week, was a decided success. The science of Hydraulics is the popular study in Westminster, just now. \N hen, oh ! when, shall we have that new, handsome brick Railroad Depot ? Everybody and his wife will be in town next week ; the beginning of Court. Misses Hello Matthews and Mattie Beaver have flourishing schools at the west end. The Bank Examiner was poking his nose into the Westminster Banks, on Tuesday. Mr. Wm. Fenby, about a mile from minster, is building a new barn, 30 x 50 feet. Mud and dust alternate in Westminster. When* are the sprinklers? Bring them oat. Prof. Hhryock of New Windsor, was !in i town last Saturday, and took dinner at the I College. tTrim up your shop windows, if you want j your goods to make a handsome display, j next week. | Dr. lecwis Woodward is putting his house I on Main street, in order, for the reception of j his bride.

Specie is stealing out from its hiding place, ’ und men are paying it out in the ordinary ‘ business transactions. j One of our bankers said they were busier on the Ist of May, than they were on the Ist j of April. , Water-stock is now in order, in West min ' ster. Don’t water your stock, but stock your 1 water. Jerome Dell is building a new frame dwell ing house on Webster street. The foundation is competed. Mr. nelson Gilbert, of this citv, who fell from a scaffold lost fall, is still suffering from the ii\juries he then received. I Westminster wants water with which to quench fire in case of conflagration, and to protect her property from the flame-. Rev. Dr. Ward, President of Western Mary land College, preached to a very large con gregation at Pipe Creek, M. P. Church, on Sunday last. Mr. O. W. Button, of Lvnchburg, Virginia bos been selected to deliver the oration to the Literary Societies of Western Maryland College. A donkey-cart has been procured by a cit- I izen of the West End, for the amusement of his children. It is quite neat, and attracts much attention upon the street. That was a moderately emphatic rebuke of the opposition to the Citizens' ticket at the election on Monday last, a sort of “water cure’ ’ to the opposition to corporation progress. Monsieur .lose Antonia de Lemas, from Sautos, Brazil, is a student at Western Mary land College, and expects to remain four years. He doesn't know a word of English ; but converses fluently in Portugese und French. The Irvings are growing in popularity. At their eighth anniversary a year ago they got one cake from the ladies: at their ninth, lost Friday night, they got two. They ate them on Monday at a special meeting. James E. Smith, has re moved to Wakefield. He will engage in butchering, and will butch er nothing but first-class beef. No Centen nial cows or Noachian bulls will fill his sham bles. After the corporation election was over, on Monday night, there was a little discussion with fists—merely the “play of freemen’s spirits.” There was similar pastime in New Windsor, the same evening, where, also, an election was held. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to lay off vour overcoats and other winter apparel. Better be encumbered a little with your wrap pings than to have a sore throat or twitching of rheumatism. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Union Bridge is one of the prettiest little I villages in Maryland. It is “a city set upon a bill,” und the buildings are nearly all new, neat, and of good size. Now Windsor, also, is a sightly town, and the College is most beautifully located, making a fine show from the railroad. The tramp, tramp, overhead, al the Town Hall, at lecture, concert, or other entertain mem, is sure to disturb the audience. They ought to order things differently. If they let the Hall for public uses, it ought to be free from disturbance by private societies overhead, in the upper story. We shall all have to walk by a chalk-lino, now. Within a few paces of the comer of Court street are located three magistrates, five lawyers and a Judge of the Circuit Court; and within hailing distance are seven more lawyers, besides the State's Attorney.

Horse Stolex.—A fine sorrel mare, valued at SIOO, says the Valley Kegisier, belonging to Mr. John D. Miller, tenant on the farm of Mr. Adam Koogle, ono mile West of this place, was stolen from the luiter’s stable on Thursday night of last week, and up to the present time nothing has been heard from her. A few months ago one of the most valuable horses owned by Mr. Miller died, and as he is a new beginner, this additional loss falls very heavily upon him. Several other horses have been stolen recently in the adjoining counties of Washington and Carroll.

If it were not too late I would like to wry ,t some Wee tilings about the last anniversary of the Webster Society, and I have ollen a wauled to compliment my sinters of the Brown ing for the less pretending, but certainly, cn ii tertaining and profitable, exorcise. of their anniversaries. it is not now a til time to j y dwell upon these, but surely with the Ninth ! Anniversary of the Irving, Friday night, j 0 April 28th, so fresh in our memory, I maybe pardoned if 1 uy something of it, and at t tempt to show the young gentlemen that if we can not equal their eloquence wo can at least appreciate it, and to appreciate is only one ) step short of U> perform, I have been told. , r I shall proceed to do this, altho’ I have no hope of doing it nearly as well as Miss M. B. | , S. always does. I went to the hall tin Friday | evening, and had no trouble in finding a good n seat, for the audience was not large though it was very select. The Webster and the Brown r ing were there before me—it is leap year, i hence 1 mention the gentlemen first—and the ) e Irving was soon marching up the aisle too and taking seats upon the stage. The Amphions t- were there of course—what would we do i. without them !—and played a fine overture by . way of opening the exercises. Mr. Wilson | H. Cushing, the young president of the Irving n then advanced and bade us welcome. He ? Vent on to set forth the advantages of such societies. He had collected many facts and it had arranged them in a very palatable man ’, ner so that his remarks were very interesting. Mr. Edwin Devilbiss, of Liberty, Md., read ‘ ‘ The Legend of Me Organ Buuaer ’ ’ venr ac f ceptably. He was followed by Mr. T. J. 1 Wilson, of Johnsville, who declaimed "The 1 Clown 1 a Story," with emphasis so just and I gestures mo appropriate as to win universal ; commendation. V.ny thought bis the best 1 i of the readings and declamation, and 1 agree 1 that U was. He heightened the effect by dressing as a clown. Mr. B. 1). Downey, of ’, Liberty, after only a week's notice, lam told, y read Saxe’s “Early Hieing," and in a very happy manner and with good affect. “The r Mum Chance ,’’ an oration by Mr. C. B. t Cushing, altho' plentifully interlarded with quotations from the poets, was strikingly - original and listened to with attention and I r applause. Parts of it were comic and very ! amusing. Lillie Willie Hoppe, declaimed in ; Vis usual felicitous style “After The Hattie." i At times he was touchingly pathetic. All the while the Amphions were tilling up the inter 1 vals of time between the exercises with their i “harping symphonies," and after one of these following Willie Hoppe, came the crowning i glory of the evening—the anniversary oration > by Mr. Preston S. Devilbiss. of Liberty, Frederick county, Md. His theme was “The Paradise of Lettera and his oration, for so young a mind, was masterly. The passages i of beauty and (fights of eloquence in it—and they were very numerous—were well appre* i dated by bis bearers and loudly applauoed. ‘ 1 have heard several fine orations from Mr. 1 Devilbiss, but none to equal this. And, now, Messrs. Editors, having, I hope, shown the fallacy of the popular opinion that a lady has f only the one adjective, nice, to express her j < pleasure, and having gone through the pro gramme. with the simple recapitulation that | f the anniversary was highly entertaining and ; ? profitable, and certainly very creditable to the | young gentlemen of the Irving, I’ll drop the ' curtain here, omitting ail mention of applause, I i cards, flowers, cakes, Ac.
