A GERMANIA SERENADE.— Last evening our Germania Band tendered to Mr. HENRY E. BABCOCK, Station Ageni Lehigh Valley Railroad, at his residence, corner of Packer avenue and William street, a brilliant sere nade. After performing two of their choicest selections, they were invited by Mr. B. into his house for refreshments. When all had become quietly seated a member of the band left the parlor for a moment and returned bearing a magnificent and eo>tly silver tilting water pitcher with two goblets, slop bowl and platter, which Mr. ED. WALKER, the Band Master, proceeded to present f o Mr. BAKCOCK from the band, in suitable and very appropriate language, as a practical express ion of their appreciation of the important services of Mr. 15. in his highly successful management of their excursion to Watkins Glen on the 2Gth of August lust. Mr. BAB COCK although taken entirely by surprise, seemed so fully delighted !>v the compliment of the presentation and the rare beauty of tlie present itself,that lie accepted the same in very happy, hearty and thankful terms, as suring the band that what little he had been able to do for them was the free and willing tribute of a friend to an excellent organiza tion of fine musicians, and of liberal-hearted, gentlemanly fellows, that they could com mand his services at all times and 011 all occa sions. Fine refreshments were then bountifully served by Mrs. BABCOCK, after which the band played in the bouse, a waltz sug gestive of festivity and dancing, and a good night's selection outside the gate. The splendid present is not easily described. It, is entirely novel and recent in its desigu : A large pitcher tilting or swinging between two upright standards, supported by a plat ter 011 which a.e two gold lined goblets, one in front and one in rear and a large go'd lined slop bowl, all of heavily plated silver. The pitcher is richly decorated with delicate leaves and blossoms and tlnv hanging vines and 011 its front is engraved in exquisite but massive lettering: "11. E. BABCOCK, from the Ger TOWANDA, PA., TUESDAY, OCTOBER iS, ISSI. mania Band, 1881." This splendid gift was from the jewelry store of W. A. CHAMBKR LIN. Its cost to the band was forty dollars. The engraving was executed by £i> MOUILL ESSKAUX. Afterwards tha glorious Ger manias wended their gleeful course down to the cornor of Third and Chestnut streets, where they serenaded their liberal £ patron and steadfast friend, Mr. CIIAS. L. TRACY. Several lailies and Mr. TRACY appeared upon the lawn and applauded the music. Mr TRA CY thanked the band for their compliment to him, which being entirely unexpected his household was not prepared to offer them r - freshments, which he would be most happy to do. Mr. FRED E. SMITH, the golden-toned eornetist was with the band. Two other im portant members were unavoidably absent, yet the music was superb and the evening was summer-like and delightful. The News Condensed.
