A PLEASANT AFFAIK.
The Banquet Given the Exceliior Fire

The Goddess of Pleasure held high
carnival for two hours, and there was
not an occurrence during the tine to
mar the festive occasion.
The dinner as prepared by :.1r.
Crouch and his estimable wife was such
a feast as is ra-ely enjoyed in New
berry, and for that matte: anywhere
else. No pains were spared by them
to meet the wants of the miout fastidi-T
ous epicure. We think we can truth
fully say that we never attended a
dinner or gathering that was so um1
The kindness and thoughtfulness of
the officers who gave it we feel sure is
appreciated by the niceubers of the

As a gentleman remarked to us on

considered complete unless it had i
connection sonic toasts. So this occa
