the people in thin locality was a matter
of mere cunjvc'ure, as it was impossible
to r»ach auy of them on foot, and the
high wind and roughness of the water
forbade auy attempt to cross the marshes

they were greeted by three hearty cheers
In passing the Washington Engine house
Mr. Johu T. West, on behalf of that
Company stepped out and presented
the Chief Engineer of the Troy depart
ment with a magnifiée nt bouquet of cut
ttowers.
While passing the City Hall the bell on
that building was rang, showing the visi
tors that they were welcome to our city.
Iu fact their reception was a perfect ova
tion. The parade was was witnessed by
thousands of persons, not a stjeet along
the line of march but what was crowd
od.
All the companies looked well, and
tnay well feel proud of their appear auce
and marching.
The Water Witch Company so ar
ranged their men that they presented an
exceedingly fine appearance in march
ing, takiug up the whole street. The
two englues in line were cleansed to a
handsome degree of brightness.
In the Fame Hose Company there were
a line of horn beaiers, and also two lines
of silver toruh bearers. They aNo had a
fine dog very prett ly trimmed up. The
Weccacoe also deserve praise for the Hue
appearance of their hose carriage, wbioh
was also very handsomely trimmed up.
They also had a number of Indians with
them.
There were a number of visitors from
Philadelphia, who were the guest« of the
Water Wilon Company. Among them

First assistant engineer Hammond, of
the Philadelpnia paid fire department;

The guests »ere entertained by
Water Witch in their parler, and after
the parade they sat down to a collation
aud refreshments that had been prepared
for th« m, at the conclusion of which sev
eral songs were sung and speecho» made.
Thomas H. Peto presided, and there Was
ue end of fuu. There is no doubt that
Peto i» one of the funuiest men alive,
and he kept the company assembled in
the room in a continual r>ar of laughter
and good humor bv his funny saving, in
f ct all the I bho. 1 ' were prlnc s • got d
fellows.
The companies that took part in the
