With "banners spread breeze, and the bright colors of the order floating, the processmSj Cumbering; "as it did, greater than "any previous procession had in this city, looked extremely gay. The Orange District Band, under the ex- -D-- cellent management of Mr. ,H. would costless as-well as be came out strong and rather surprised many of our citizens who little thought ONE young man took to the pie-nic yesterday, and allowed that it was not a good day for girls either. ----------------------4.---------------------- No QUORUM was what was the matter with the Council last night, and a spe- cial meeting was ordered for this after- noon. MR. FKANCIS GILMORE has returned from Montreal, having recover- ed from the ailment which necessitated his temporary absence. THAT machine should not be put up so near the merry-go-round, you quite a number of at- tempted run aways on the part of horses have already resulted from it. Ontario, from outly- ing sections of the Province they came, and meeting the old stand- byes of the city, made a pretty good muster of the 1st Ontario Rifles yesterdav. RIFLE men have been chosen for a match between the military and civilians, and the match will come off shortly. Andgthat reminds us, why is not the range put into operative order THE election bills for the last general election are now being paid in this singu- lar manner. A portion only of each bill is allowed, and a per cencage, only, of such allowance is now paid. FELL last night a drunken man named Lynn, in making erratic they had so good a band among them. The procession moved down Main Street and to the charming grove of Mr. Ran- nerman, near St. John's Cathedral, to which place it was followed by numbers of citizens in carriages. The spread, provided by Mr. Joseph--Devlin, af Eureka House, was extremely good arid evinced a desire to provide am- ple quantity as well as good quality. Af- ter doing ample justice to the" good Stewart Mulvey, as Chair- man called the meeting to order, and after speaking briefly, introduced Mr. Corrigal of Headingly, who spoke at some length upon the subject of the day. Some other speakers who were expected to deliver addresses, not being forthcom- ing, Mr. Mulvey again took the plat- form, and in a most felicitous vein, en- tertained the company to an excellent and much applauded speech. The band very nicely filled up the intervals in the programme. A number of swings had been erected and these were kept in con- stanfc service. The merry-go-round man was there too, and with bis circulating machine managed to rake in quite a quantity of the circulating medium. It was astonishing to see the apparent age of some of the children who patronized this affair. One gentleman in particu- lar, who had secured as box companion a very pretty down the river young lady, remained in the concern the entire afternoon.

FIRST READINGS. The following bills were then duced and read a first time- Mr An Act to extend intro- nocturnal explorations, tumbled into a cellar, lately dog on Garry Street, by Mr Gingras.

"We were shown' a four point blanket made at Me Vicar's woollen mills, St. Boniface, which for finish and durable qualities, and in everv particular which goes to make a thorough, number one, blanket, cannot be excelled by any imported article. The sample shown us is four inches wider than imported blankets, and weighed eight pounds. These blankets can be produced at a cheaper rate than is paid for the imported article. Messrs. McVic- ar have already received an extensive order. Humors of tfce Route. About half way between Oak Point and Winnipeg there is a creek where immigrants and other people along the road camp. A few days ago as some weise coming along they, observed near the creek a pole-about ten feet high stuck in the ground arid a piece pf'pork, and a tin of butter attach- ed to it. On a slip of paper was writ- ten: "Contributed to the paupers of the Dawson Road; eat hearty." On another slip of paper was written: Stay, weary traveller, thank your Gocf You're safely o'er the Da-wson Eoad I'm sure it will do you some good To take a little rest-and food. mercifial'iaalLpnij
