The supper spread at Temperance hall
last night was a very muchly demolished
one after the numerous throng ot hungry
people had partaken of it. The attendance
was unprecedented and everybody must
either have made special preparations by
fasting or, the dainties, etc., spread before
them must have Ween unusually attractive
and the ladies positively itresistable. But"
however, that may have been, there can be
no doubt that those who attended had all
they could eat of the best that could be pre
pared by the numerous apt feminine cooks
who assisted iu the preparation of the ta

all, and uo doubt the aifair will be remem

THE AXLHYi WII.S1 N TRIAL.
The trial of Axley it Wilson, charged
with keeping a gambling den, came tii be
fore Justice Robitnon ye-terd ay at 1 o'cbx'k
iu the afternoon, and by that time men
wh )sc sons had lost nion-y in the house, and
who de-ircl to s-c it s.ippres-ed, gathered
in the court room, as did also the "amblers
who support the louse, and who d. -sired to
see it shielded. The impartial judge, with
feet c icke I upon the d-sk before him, pa
tiently awaited the arrival of the attorneys,
who-e absence was visible painful to the
waiting an I curious crowd. At about two
o'cioc thce gentlemen put iu their ti
