H.. of the town have scoured every place po-sib e for old barrels of which th-y have ob tained a larare number of which th biggest part are old tar barrels wh ch will last the longest in burning. A regular appointed committee has been selected to superintend the distribution and setting off the fire works which will be the latest effects. The Brid Reporters in the parade wii! be the three divls'ons of the A O. H. and the Hibernian Rifles. They wil' meet this evening at Hibernian hal" and will then march from tie'r room -to Main street to Fairfield avenue headed by the Woodmen of the World band.
