AND MEREDITH. EX ".OVERNOR
HOADLY, JUDGE BRADY AND
GENERAL WOODFORD
The Brooklyn New-Englnnd Soeiety, for the
ninth time since its corporation, took advantage
la6t night of tiie doubt concerning the exact dat-*
of the landing of the Pilgrim Father* to anticipate
the festivity of the kindred organization in New
Vork. For the ninth time it-s members plum-*d
themselves on the finer lin<-?ffe indicated by their
Yankee smartnej-*. in getting ahead of their kinsmen
over the Bridge, and every lively sally and flas.i
of wit served to celebrate not only the arrival of
'he For-fathers, but also the discomfiture of the
-. w-York branch of their descendants.
l-ttter-day Puritans w!.o stoutly assert that, at
pinch they could subsist on raw salt, pork, hard
I iscuit and melted snow, with Calvin's ? I natl
' -" and Foxe's ? Book of Martyrs" for mental
pabulum, contemplated with enthusiasm the badgw
distributed among the guests?a ruddy ribbon
bearing the counterfeit presentment of a mediae
Mil bark anchored in a sea of gilt, with her yards
a-cook-bill and the St. George's cross fluttering
from her main. Lest they should forget their
obligations to the worthy progenitors whom she
brought across the -sea, the tasteful though not
oin borate menu-card was ornamented with a pict?
ure of the white-haired, heavily-cloaked Carver,
directing the operations of Cromwellian warriors,
with casque, cuirass and arguebuss, on a wintry
and snow-clii'l shore.
- RECEIVING TIIE GUESTS.
Tho guests were received on entertng by
President John Winslow, who st-nod at tiie head
of the stairs leading to the spacious " art-rooms"
of the Acidemy building and who was assistrd by
thc Committee of Arrangements, Ethan Allen
Doty, James S. Case, and that rising and popular
young Brooklynite a.-.d ardent Hepublican. \V. H.
Williams. The dining hall was profusely decorated
with Hags, streamers, and thrfHf bearing the de?
vices of the different States; and Ali's band, en?
sconced behind a screen of living palm.*?, revived
agreeable memories of " Erminie" during thc even?
ing.
At the right of President Winslow sat Henry
Cabot Lodge, General Stewart L. Woodford, ex
Governor Hoadly, of Ohio; the Rev. Dr. R. Ii.
Meredith, and John W. Hunter, of the St. Nicholas
Society. Late in th'! evening Theodore Roose?
velt's eyeglasses and blond mustache were added
to tho group on this side. At the left, Judge
Hrady discussed fine wines Britt lienjamin D.
Silliman, and J. S. T. Stranahan expounded to Dr.
Ta Image his M_MB-fl for tbs establishment of a
metropolis greater than that by tiie Thames.
