waa made, No. 417 being liilchcd to tho

greatest feature of ull is the gi.md centen

money could do to carry out tho immense

uro to (l.thH) people wu done, and tho re
sult attained was satisfactory, Thero was
certainly little to he w ished for in point ot

havo w ished from scllldi motive that half
the people had stayed at hoine, and yet it
was a night of exemplification ol the old
aduirVi the more tho merrier.
