A Wnrui Iteceptlou I < inl< r< <l by tho l*coplc, Who ore fronet or Thcm t'lue Mnnlcnnil gu Kicrllrnt linii qnet-'lho Irity's Proceed I iign. Magnificent In cflcct, grand in con? ception and highly gratifying as a suc? cess in the highest sense, is what the thirty-third anniversary celebration of th'e Chambers Steam Fire Engine Com? pany Xo. 2, of this city, proved to be yesterday. It was an ideal afternoon for the demonstration, lite atmosphere being I balmy, tin- streets in lino condition, und the delightful breeze blowing had .the effect of tempering to an appreciative I degree the oppressive heat of the sun*s rays. The people were expectant of a fine display from this grand organiza? tion, the men were In splendid form and tin- apparatus In tine condition, hence everything was conducive towards mak? ing this event one long to be remem? bered as a bright page in the history of the company. The expectancy of the people was fully realised, and the anti? cipation of the pleasures of the after? noon and evening was but a shadowy thought in comparison with the sub? stance of the realization of the granduer of the occasion. IN THE AFTERNOON. About noon it was noticeable that nn air of activity pervaded the city, and the fact that "coming events cast their shadows before them" was fully real? ized and more thoroughly understood a little later In the day. The call for the assembling of tho company was made for 4 o'clock, but for an hour, from 3:15 o'clock, Prof. Harry Hull's very excellent Soldiers' Home Hand delighted our citizens with an excellent concert in front of the Chambers engine-house, during which time the large membership of the Chambers gathered, and when Captain It. C. Marshall formed the line, the men drawing their magnificent hose carriage, a splendid spectacle presenter! Itself to the largo concourse of our citi? zens who had gathered to show their respect and appreciation for. this famous organization. Captain Marshall commanded, with Captains Charles E. Murden and S. D.'Hutchins occupying their respective positions. And when the command "march" was given the company, to the strains of a beautiful melody by the band, tool; up and faith? fully observed the following LINE OF MARCH. Court street, to High, to Crawford, to London, to Middle, to North, to Dinwid die, to Glasgow, to Washington, to High, to Efllngham, to Clifford, to Washington, to Harrison, to Fifth, to Henry, to First, to Lincoln, to Fourth, to Court, "to South, to Washington, To High, to Court, to the engine-house, where the company was temporarily dismissed All along the line compliments were bestowed upon the company for its fine appearance in its pretty uniform and the exceedingly largo turn out of its members, and hearty greetings and gen erous applause was the rule all the way through. Till-; HAND CONCERT. At 7:30 o'clock the Soldiers' Home Band, occupying the stag" which bad been erected in the Courthouse yard especially for the occasion, gave a de? lightful band concert, the following selections being played in a masterly manner. Prof. Hall personally conduct? ing the concert: 1- Overture?"Maritnn.i" . Wallace 2. la) Entr'acte el Vulso (from "Co Bcla". Dellbes (b) "Fin Albrunblntt" . Wagner 3.

Popular medley (very latest "up to-date") . Hall 5. March?"Hands Across the Sea" . Sousa The numbers selected for this concert were. It will be seen, exceedingly dim cult, and to the lovers of good music was a most delightful treat. Tu Till': BANQUET HALT/. At I) o'clock the company again as sembled, wearing attractive fatigue caps of blue cloth, with the words "Chambers" in gold across the front, and the line being again formed, the march to the banquet room in the City Hall wns Inken up and completed, much to the satisfaction of the men, for here was a b'j\scr of aullic-leiu beauty to sax Isfy the most critical, for the tables wi re Indeed beautiful, made so by the Indies of Mrs. Martha Taylor's Circle No. 1. of Owens Memorial M. E. Church, who furnished the banquet, and of which liny should teei pardonably proud, everything nn epicure could leasonably wish being there in profu? sion. The "Chambers" bid their Invited guests welcome, and the welcome was of the kind usually extended by these brave men?-open-hearted, generous and home-like, which at once puts one at case -and is a factor in tin.' enjoyment of the pleasures of any occasion, and this evening's entertainment was no exception to the rule. THE ME NT AND TOASTS. Captain Marshall asked a blessing upon the bounteous supply awaiting the company and its guests, and then came tlie scone so fam liar to those who have attended banquets gotten up on stu b an elaborate settle as this. Merry jest*, good natu red sarcasm, and wit of tt high order sclcntlllatcd bete and then? as the Hash of a pure gem in the sunlight. THE MENU.

Pickles. cigars being lighted, the band played a beautiful selection, and the assembly was ready to bear the speeches of the evening, the toasts, like the responses, being strictly Informal and Impromptu. Captain Marshall read letters of re? gret from Chief Engineer Fred Wiera dorf. Mayor J. Thompson Bnlrd, Ad? miral Farquhar, Constructor A. \V. Stahl, Chief Engineer Martin Ryan,.6f the Norfolk lire deyartnicnt. Captuln W. T. Robinson responded to the toast of "The Portsmouth Fire De? partment." I "The City of Fortsmouth" fell in Rood hands. Mr. John J. King, president of the City Council, responding thereto. The sentiment, "The Visiting Fire-j mer.t," was ably handled by Captain John H. Redwood, of Richmond. Mr. George ti. Cummlng was chosen to s;ieak for the "United Stales Navy." and Curtain Charles T. llland talked on the subject of "The Press." Mr. IItn;h Steele sweetly sang "Just as the Sun Went Down," and other gentlemen sang pretty songs, the dem? onstration of the day concluding about midnight with a cake walk thaV would have made "Steamboat Billy" and his associates green with envy. The Soldiers' Home Band, during the course of the speech-making, enlivened the occasion with the following selec? tions: Latest medley of popular airs, "Pousse "Cafe," Hall; Has de Deux, "Hands Across the Sea," Sousa; rag? time caprise, "Alabama Dream," Ber? nard; "Sounds from the Metropolis."
