was fone towards making arrangements for it.
If I nistake not, a resolution was passed two
years ago to have an exhibition at that time.
Now,however, an inducement will be offered
that tay not occur again soon; and 1 think it
shonl bo taken advantage of by the members
of tbit praiseworthy organisation. The plan
I propose is tSfs: As a large building will
bave.o be erected for the inauguration ball on
the 4li of March, would it not be an economi
cal fan to have a building erected that shall
sume lor both purposes? Ibis will be a
large laving to both tne committee for the ball
and ne Mechanics' Institute, and the fair can
be hid cither before or after the inauguration,
aB tb latter mar desire. The great number
lot sUngent who will bo in the city, will be
alsoi great inducement to nave It at that time.
Let-'S have another exhibition by all means.

not avail themselves of this generous and in

That Scrfbise-d Parti. We hear of a
good joke that happened iu this city, week be
fore last, which we cannot refrain from ventila
tiig. Il appears that sundry young gentlemen,
wishing to vary somewhat the extreme dull
ness of the times, hit upon the idea of a sur
prise patty as likely to accomplish that desira
ble result. Accordingly, about twenty couples
were collected for this very laudable purpose,
and, with all the good things which had been
provided, nero on their way, at about eight and
a half o'clock in the evening, to tho house
where tbey proposed spending the evening, not
half a mile from the vicinity of Wesley Chapel.
Arrived at the door, the bell was rung, and
an individual with a face black enough for
charcoal to " make a white mark upon soon
made his, appearance. As soon as the door
was opened, the gentlemen made a rush to get
inside; and this sudden movement, it being
very dark in the passage, so frightened tho col
ored individual as to cause him to beat a hasty
retreat upstairs, when he informed his master
that a party of "8tatea Hose" were in the
The young lady to whom the visit was spe
cially intended, we might as well here mention,
was at the Theatre, where Jefferson was doing
up " Rip Van Winkle," and her father was pre
paring to imitate, in a degree, the act which
made that celebrated individual so famous, in
his own house.
When the old eentleman heard the story of
the ternnea servant, be armed himself with a
pair of loaded revolvers, and, placing a rusty
old gun in the hands of Sambo, he proceeded
cautiously down the steps, and, partly opening
ine panor uoor, doid oi mem inrusi meir nre
arms in, prior to entoring themselves.
This movement was followed by a succession
of screams from the lady visiters, whilst most
of the young ' gallants " (oh, fie I ) took refuge
under the sofa and tables.
In a few moments, however, things were ex
plained, and all hands laughed heartily at the
double surprise, excepting one young man
whose head had come in contact with one of
the sofa legs. The old gentleman put away
his revolvers, extended a hearty welcome to all
the young folks, and everybody turned to en
joying themselves. The young lady arrived
early, and the fun was kept up till near morn
ing, the old gentleman receiving many compli
ments for bis pluck in the mean time.
" ltcs thinks that vouni: loins who tro on
surprise parties hereafter should be careful not
to upct or otherwise alarm the servant of the
domicil, as it might not turn out quite so well

Plrsonal Rekcontre. There was quite an
exciting scene at the National Hotel on Friday
night, in which Mr. Linton, a lawyer of this
city, and a man named Davis, participated.
Politics was the cause of the difficulty, and
many different reports reach us as to who was
most to blame. liiuton made the assertion that
be was a Republican, which was replied to in a
bitter manner by Davis. Other words ensued,
when Linton drew a knife, and was about plung
ing it into Davis, when he was restrained by
bystanders, and subsequently taken In charge
by the police.

a The Memphis Enquirer says that the seces
sion movement is " wrong end foremost;" it
proceeds from the politicians, when it should
nave started among the people. The same

form could command no respect, as precedent
would be against its stability.

" South Carolina's movements are well cal
culated materially to impair the value of slave
in the States of North Carolina and Virginia.
Slaves ore goiug down in price every day, and
we may expect soon to see South Carolinians

Buchanan some positively asserting that after
the 4th of March he will make his home in Vir

any lunner trouble on this point, we teel dis
posed to Bettlo it by stating that Wheatland,
the Mecca of tbe political pilgrims in 1856, is
to remain the home of Ex-President Buchanan.
Some weeks ago, a conple of the subordinates
of tbe White House came on here, and, under
the instructions of Mr. Buchanan, proceeded to
put the premises in order for reoccupancy.
Next summer, Wheatland will be a more attract
ive residence than everrand, iadeed, no more
beautiful retreat for a retired President could
be found in the country than Wheatland. There
Mr. Buchanan will have a fine opportunity, amid
the inspiration afforded by a quiet, invigorating,
picturesque rural retreat, to pursuo the literary
tabors to which, it is understood, he proposes
to devote the remainder of his days, after va
cating the White House.
