feated iby a small "margin by Colonel
Campbell Slemp, of. Wise county. A" con
test over the seat was at first threatened,
but tlie f manly stand • taken by Mr.; Rhea
averted one. A recanvass of the "result
showed the election- of Colonel Slemp.
The defeat of Mr., Rhea. is attributed to

; Considering the many, brilliant ..enter-,
talnroents and remarkable .number, of
; swell ".weddings" that characterized; the
year 1502, the .query is a reasonable. one,
as/a resume of the events will -show.
It was a.rnatterof universal regret that
with the birth of 1302 one of the most
popular Governors that, has ever.ocupied
the": Executive; Mansion, . Major . J.;*lloge
Tyler,: and his charming family,': ;who, for
■ fouriyears had been' an acquisition to the 1
social iifeof Richmond. -returned to their
home in Radf ord. The in-coming of : Gov
.erhor.' Montague on' .last -New
Tear's Day, was a '■['. brilliant af
fair, "-W and the the reception . at ■: the
mansion that evening was attended with
all - the " eclat that handsomely • gowned
women, gallant staff 'officers 'in striking
uniforms,-/ elaborate decorations, and in
spiring music could combine to make
\ Richmond society gave a right hearty
welcome to the.new Governor and" his
delightful wife, who have done their
share of entertaining during the past
season. The same month* the doors of the
mansion were again thrown open, on the
occasion of an elegant reception to the
Colonial Dames, and later in "the winter
Governor and Mrs. Montague entertained
in honor of the members of the- Constitu
tional Convention and their wives.
Other notable social affairs during the
year were the French salon, given on
■January' 3lst,' att.ie home of Mr. Warner
Moore, for the benefit of the Huguenot
Society: a german at "-the Masonic Temple
on Jai.uary 17th, given by Mr. and Mrs.
Thomas Atkinson, in honor of Misses
Eda and Bertha Atkinson: the annual
tea of the Richmond Chapter of tho
United Daughters of the Confederacy; the
reception at the home of Major Norman
■V. Randolph to the Jefferson Davis Mon
ument Association, and the visiting 1 art
ists; the reception given at the Jefferson
Hotel by the Richmond Art Club to the
artists; who competed for the Davis Mon
j ument; the tea at the home of Mrs. I. N.
Jones, given' by the Commonwealth Chap
ter, Daughters. of the American Revolu
tion, in honor of the Pilgrims, from the
North", who visited the city under the
chaperonage of illrs. Caroline Foote-
Marsh: arid Mrs. Hatch-Willaru. several
handsome entertainments given by the
Jefferson Club at their palatial club house;
the meeting of tho Colonial Dames •at
Westover, where they were" entertained
.by Mrs. William Mcßamsey at an elegant
luncheon/ and many small dinners, lunch
eons arid teas that were perfect in all
their; appointments.
Dancing seemed to increase in popularity j
and several new german clubs .were or- I
gaiiized, and are "now Jin ?a nourishing
condition. Some of. the most popularare
the Richmond: German, the Assembly, the
Richmond Cotillion, the Friday German,
and tho :Friday Cotillion Clubs, besides'
a.number of fashionable dancing schools.
The devotees of whist have lost none
of their enthusiasm, and many of the
exclusive set belong to several clubs, and
in. consequence pass a couple of after
noons every : week enjoying a : spirited •
game.; The Milton ■■(".'. "Work, Kate Wheel
ock, Emma Andrews, and the Woman's
Club Whist Club, seemed to have had
new life Installed In them, and the mem
bers are among the finest players of the
game likely to be found. -A team from
the Milton C.^Work Whist Club recently
won the travelling trophy after a warm
ly contested game in Washington, which',
in turn, was won from them by the Kate
Wheelock Whist Club, and the trophy
now remains in the possession of the
Richmond ladles, who are Justly proud
of. the emblem of 'their victory.
Patriotic societies have done excellent
work and have laid many plans for .the
future. Nearly all; of -them- have contrib- j
uted to : the embellishment of the model
'school, •.besides taking a lively interest in
other matters. A new chapter of the
-Daughters of : the American^ Revolution
has/ been '~, organized, and Richmond, ; like
most, of f the other large cities, can now
boast of two '_ chapters. ■ ""■'".
■Thg-Daughters of the Confederacy ha vo
probably. 'accomplished more , during the |
year than any other organization, of its j
kind. In June, through their; untiring i
energy,, a nt 'ci of the memorial arch to j
be erected ,t« efferson Davis was selected, j
andat the Cri-iC'tiag of tho Jefferson Davis
Monumental Association at ; that tune.
some of the most representative .women of.,
the country were present, besides a num»
hereof distinguished: sculptors. .The worlc
[of., collecting ; -. the'. funds, which "'-has 'been a
hard. one, has progressed wonderfully.-and
• the" treasurer has ndw i in bank . over. $-13,000. ■
AH have been made" for a*
bazaar— to be given in the early spring,
at; which,; each, State In ; the South-w ill be"
represented, and the proceeds will ; be di
vided between :i . the United Daughters of
the Confederacy and the' Confederate Me-
I morial Literary Society. I . . A

for the numerous juvenile parties that
were given and tho '-'littlo folks heartily
entered into the spirit of the season
which more than repaid the fashionable*
mammas for tho 'inconvenience of having
a' Christmas-tree' party. All tho german

devotees of Terpsichore.
