Tuesday was celebrated by our
Firemen, and citizens generally, as
the Anniversary of the Independent
Elliott Hook and Ladder Company.
In the afternoon the two companies
paraded our streets, presenting a very
attractive appearance. The ^Truch
of the Elliotts '.was beautifully deco
rated by fair hands, and ''Uncle doe,"
the pet of the Redshirt.-, and in fact
of the town, looked like a thillgof
beauty, which is "a joy^forever."

Letters were read from the venera
bl? Dr. Elliott, the worthy patron of]
the ( otupany. ("apt. Dibble, and Rev.
T. W. Mellichamp, the Chaplain, re
gretting their inability to attend in
response to the invitations extended
to them, but expressing tho noblest
sentiments and the wai tuest interest
in the prosperity of the Company.
The Anniversary of the Company
being the birthday of Dr. Elliott, this
interesting fact constituted in no
small degree, a theme of the evening,
and many of the speakers held up his
exemplary life nt a shining light for
the young men of the community.
The regrets at his absence were uni
versal, ami the heartfelt wish of
every lireman and guest around the
festive hoard was, that be would he
spa ret 1 to be with us when our next
anniversary rolls around.
A (hi in per was thrown over the
festivities of the evening by the sick
ncss of Dr. < ooke, who was compell
ed to return to his home at an early
stage. This also took away Prof.
Lawrence, who was appointed to one
of the toasts, ami no doubt, bad a
toast in store for the audience.
The evening passed oil most de
lightfully, the flow of wit and senti
ment being unstinted. We have rea
sons to hope that along with the plea
santries some golden seeds of wisdom
have been sown which will be devil
ing in their tendency and give to the
occasion an upward pointing.
