Music, followed by the benediction, closed the exercises upon the grounds, and the congregated thousands dispersed for dinner, which was eaten in picnic parties, at restaurants, lunch stands, private houses, and hotels—all of the latter being crowded. The afternoon was spent in boat racing, carriage driving, ball playing, pigeon shooting, and general rambling All the livery teams, as well .as the fine sail boats,were constantly employed. In '.be evening the crowd gathered upon the open common west of the court house, to witness the display of fireworks, which were fine, after which music and dancing, in various places, held (he young folks, until the clock told that the first century had felt d into the past, and that our nation had entered upon another hundred years of its existence. Base Bail. One of the most closely contested games ever played in the State, came off at this place on the 4th, between the Albert Lea and Geneva clubs. This is not the first game betv/een these contestants. We have watched their practice game with interest, some time bark, and are forced to the conclusion that both clubs are entitled to rank far above the ordinary standard of country clubs A d 1sthtficd gentleman from Faribault, who watched the game on the 4th, remarked in our hearing that he had not seen clubs so evenly matched, or a game so finely contested, in the State. It is in {‘act a question whether either one is not a match for almost any club in tile West. We give below. the score of the game refei re I to, siiow- Ciiurcli Dedication.

We publ ish elsewhere the address of Mr. Parker, at the celebration in Albert Lea, on the Centennial Fourth, including those portions omitted in the reading upon the ground. The history has been prepared with much care, with a view of making it accurate and reliable data of information to our people, and as a starting point for all the county history that may follow. It will be seen, also, that the creditable showing of prosperity, based upon reliable facts, renders it a valuable immigration document, and with that view we have printed a large number of extra copies. One typographical error was over looked in the proof reading which we will correct here. In the paragraph relating to the building of the Southern Minnesota Railroad, it was made to read 1859, and should have read I SGG. Enthusiasm by Everybody!

Prayer, reading of the declaration, music, &c., completed the preliminary proceedings, when the orator, lion Ara Barton, was introduced, and opened ! Lora Lcvens OU his address by an appology ; stating that when the invitation reached him, he supposed it would be only a village celebration. Had he known that “ all creation ” was going to be present, he would have hesitated. We regret that thc crowded state of our columns prevent the publication of his very interesting speech. At the close of the prepared address. he made some supplementary remarks extemporaneously, which were highly humorous in their character. The lateness of the hour, confusion of firecrackers, and difficulty to make himself heard by the large audience, induced thc historical reader to clip from his address large and material portions, but it is published in complete form elsewhere.
