our citizens will bethink of tho hot tltno

nnd that the remembrance thereof will

The excursion last night on the Eckert,
wa heartily enjoyed in tho pleasant eve
ning breeze, by one of tho largest and most

shine beaming in his countenance and po
liteness on his lips, 'making every one feol
at case, and keeping everybody in good
humor. We daro not tell the number
(lest our credibility be called in question 1
of the party who thus had this delight
ful opportunity of entering into tho in
nocent pleasures of tho hour. All that
could enhanco human capability of enjoy
ment was brought Into service, the miirrv
dance, theenchanting notes of music s
dulcet harmony, the loveliness and spar
kle of the youthful fair, tho gentle motion
of the boat, tho shimmering of the moon
beams on the placid water, nil contributed
to inspire und oxhllirnto tho spirits to the
highest pitch. But tho cuslne was not
tho les praised or worthy of it because
tho partakers thereof had been thrilled in
to eostacy by tho merry dance and its ac
companying surroundings. Tho stowurd
must havo exhausted his powers of culin
ary invention, ns tho appetites of the party
gave ample reason to believe. Tho occa
sion must havo been desorvedly grateful
to Captain Dugan Inmoresonscs than one,
and nono the less so, to tho excursionists
who bore this handsome testimony to mer
it. ' It was an occasion in which respect
