, At the elnee of thia addreM Mr. Bobo was int

Yesterday was tho eightieth anniveraary of the

we were aroused from our slumbers by the R?

I>arado waa formed by tho various artillery and in- du
fautry companies of tho city upon tho Citadel Green,
which, alter passing through the streets, returned ar
and was dismissed about 10 o'clock. Whits on
the Citadel Green wo were informed that the Ca- in
di Is were making preparations fur the celebration M
of the day, and wo resolved to a'.lend. Upon arriving
at tho Citadel wo were not a little surprised
nt tho appenranee presented by tbe central parade _
ground, in which we found n stage had been orcct- L>
ed, which was Jcoorotod with wreaths and festoons du
of flowers and evergreen*. The stage was raised to
l about four foci above tho ground,nnd it was shaded U(
i by a pavillion, the central polo of which wo* literally of
covered with flowers, wfentlis of cedar, and palinet- l'1
to leaves. At about mid height hung a very fine *"

military finishing touch to the picture, ami wero in I"

When we arrived, we found ??ur*eM' preceded hy a u

seats in the galleries, ill which seats had been ar
ranged. We chose a ?< nt for ouraelf from which ^
we thought we might get a good hearing without ?
encroaching upon the dominion of tho ladies; hut ei
we soon found our mistake. A continued stream
poured into tho galleries, till we began to fear thcrs
would not be room even for the lady Mudieocc. Hot (J
