A rise of seventeen feet seven inches
was reported by last evening's bulletin to
have occurred in the river at Cincinnati
during the previous twenty-four hours. At
Louisville the rise was five feet one inch;

also experienced a general rise, which was
probably the cause of the rise in the rivers.

Saturday night a very pleasant little
social gathering was held at the residence
of Mr. F. Korsmeyer, on Eleventh street, in
which about two scores of ladies and gentle
men took part. It was a reception to Mrs.
H. U. Candee who had returned but a day
or two before from a visit to the north and
east. Her lady friends had proposed the
event and engineered it with the success of
experienced hands at such pleasant busi
ness. A fine feast was provided, and there
was music and other means of passing the
time delightfully, not least among which
was the reading by Miss Bettie Korsmeyer
of a translation of her own, which had oa
a previous occasion excited much favorable
comment. The affair will take its place
beside the best of the many other very
pleasant society events that have made this
dreary winter season resound with notes of
good will to all.
The residence of Judge F. Bross was
the scene of the surprise party of the sea
son last Sunday night s double barrelled
surprise party, in fact, as the sequel will
show. It was the thirtieth anniversary of
the wedding of Mr. and Mrs.Bross their
pearl wedding day. This fact was known
to some of their friends; these talked the
matter over among themselves and finally
gathered together between thirty and forty
ladies and gentlemen of the same mind
with themselves, who resolved to see that
the day was properly observed in the Bross
mansion. Accordingly, about 8 ociock
Sunday night, when the rain poured down
heaviest, the party marched to the scene of
action and laid siege to it in true military
form. Magistrate Comings rapped on the
door which was opened by Judge Bross
himself, and without so much as demand
ing a surrender the whole party marched in
passed the judge who stared in wonder,
through the parlor where Mrs. Bross and
several young people sat struck dumb with
amazement, and into the dining-room,
where the tables were quickly decked with
a plentious and delicious feast, in partaking
of which the judge and his life partner
were compelled to join the party. All this
was done amid a Bable of johty and laugh
ter almost continuously during half the
night, being interrupted only by Magistrate
Comings, who, on the behalf of the party,
presented Judge Bross and his wife with a
beautiful pearl opera glass appropriately
inscribed, which was received by the judge
with a graceful little expression of thanks.
But this was not all. Mr. T. J. Kerth
and wife were of the party of surprisers at
first, but soon found themselves on the
other side aruong the surprised. It was
their Crystal wedding day and they proba
bly were blissfully forgetful ot the fact in
their deep interest in the festivities com
memorating the wedding of their friends.
But their fellow surprisers had been
thoughtful of them also and at the proper
moment the psrty turned upon them, over
whelmed them with congratulations and
presented them with a magnificent eilver
pickle set. Thus the affair was made one
of double significance and doubly interest
ing to all present. More pleasure was
probably never concentrated in the space of
three or four hours than was done on this
occasion, and none who participated in it
will cease to recall it long after with pleas
