Owing to the iuclcment weather the number
of quests at the Foundling Hospital ten was
somewhat small, but all were enthusiastic in
their praises of the decorations, and the ap
pearance of the infants and the general air of
comfort and prosperity. There are now twontv
four children in the hospital. The A. B. 0.
tables were liberally patronized and the
patronesses of the charity were much encour
aged. The tabic for candles and tlowers was
served by n number of young ladies. There was
a room devoted to the sale of aprons and other
articles for Christmas gifts. Mrs. Staples, Mrs.
Swope. Mrs. Kcudell, and their aids were most
efficient managers of this room. Now that the
capabilities of the chanty have been tested,
other entertainmeuts arc projected for tho bene
fit of these little ones. The ladles receiving
were Mrs. Senator Cullom, president of the
ladies' board; Mrs. Heaven, and Mrs. Wallace.
Mrs. Rathbone, Mrs. Chambers, Mrs. Buell, Mrs.
Lightfoot, Mrs. Farquhar, and others dispensed
the cood things at tho table. Among the visitors

Miss Williamson, the Misses Heaven, and many
Never did a college presideut, in the large
ness of his heart or in the expediency of his
brain, conceive a happier thought than the sym
posium at the Martyn Collese on Saturday
evening, November 29. The event was
a triple celebration in honor of the
Thanksgiving season, a thanksgiving or
house-warming of the new apartments, (where
the banquet was held,) and an opportunity for
the young orators to rival Chauncey Depow.
He must look to his laurels, for the toasts and
responses turned with good points, as did the
bountifully supplied table. The speakers were
selected from the oratory and acting classes,
and some of the speeches were models founded
on the "Ars Rhctorica." The genial principal
did the honors at the head of "the table, while
the toastmaster, Mr. J. G. Gardner, presided
at the foot, beaming upon the fiftyyoungmen
and maidens lining the long table and enjoying
every minute. Twelve o'clock came too soon
for every one, and the symposium closed amid
unanimous expressions of delight, making
one feel it was indeed "a feast of reason
and How of soul."

years. It was ono of tho treasures of Mount
Vernon In tho days when George and Martha
dispeused their elegant hospitality at tho man
sion. By Gen. Washington tho grand palm was
presented to a friend in Baltimore, at whoso
death it camo into possession of tho Whlto
Houso gardener. For over thirty years this
historical sago palm has stood near ono of tho
doors leading into the state dining-room. Tho
trunk of tho plant measures fourteen feet In
diameter. The sago palm has tho curious habit
of blooming ono year, and tho succeeding year
it will throw out fifty or sixty leaves, thus
flowering only every alternate year.
