On Wednesday night, just as the clock was striking the midnight hour, the grand old bell at St. Paul's rang out loud and clear, proclaiming that the new year had dawned. It is many years since this custom was observed in our town, but in days gone by it is said by our oldest inhabitants, that each new year was welcomed in this beautiful way. The New Year's dance, given by the Lawn Tennis Club in the Athenaeum last night, was a brilliant social success. The room was tastily and elaborately decorated with flowers and potted plants. The festivities of the occasion were enjoyed by the elite of the town, and tho costumes worn b.y the ladies were varied and elegant. Music was furnished by Moeslin's orchestra, of New YTork. The annual ball given by the Knights of Columbus at the Opera House on Wednesday evening, (New Year's eve,) was a grand success, both socially |jad financially.

The annual ball of Company F, which was held at tho Armory last night, was a brilliant success in every feature. The weather was very bad but that they have becomo accustomed to, having given forty-seven dances since their organization, forty-four of which have been unpleasant. There were a number of distinguished guests present, among whom were Lieut. Col. Crowe, Captain T. R. Nash, Co. G, Danbury, and seven members of the company, Lieut.

Crofut was called to the stand, and examined by Mr. Biddle. Mr. Crofut testified that lie thought tlie location of the Creagh and Jesse saloons a very dangerous one, in fa^it, more dangerous than any other plac<% on accotint of the number of people who crossed and recrossed the tracfK. He had often stood upon the depot platform and watched people cross before incoming trains, and had had his hair stand on end at some of the narrow escapes. On cross-examination by Mr. Frost, he stated that he thought the location would be just as dangerous~to people crossing, if some other business was carried on at those placcs instead of the saloon business, and on further cross-examination by Mr.Hurlbutt, he stated that for a number of yearsbefore the railroad company erected the fence about their property north of the saloQ|is it AVas used as a general crossing, font' could not state whether more people crossed over at this point than ovei- to the saloons, as lie had never collated them. . Mr. Henry Morgan was next placed on tho stand and examined by Mr. Biddle. Mr. Morgjm'did not think the location a suitable one, for the reason tliat people coming %ut of these saloons were liable to be run over by the cars. He once saw a drunken man man come out of one of the saloons and stagger towards the cars and thought him in great danger. On cro&s-cxamination by Mr. Frost, lie stated that the man was going toward the smoking car, and could not say whether he entered the train or not, and on further questioning by Mr. Murlbutt fe admitted that tliG man the^bther track from tho one on which the train stood, and going in the direction of the up Irain, so that if the up train had been coming he would have faced it. He also admitted that ho had read of certain celebrated men Avhose brain ljad been quickened by the use of liquor, and had made some, of their best speeches while under the influence of liquor. -gfe Rev. Mr. North, pastor of tlp Mctho-dist church, was tho next witness examined by Mr. Biddle. Mr. North thought the location was unsuitable for the reason that it imperiled human life every time a person crossed tho track to the saloon, and when coming back intoxicated. Also that ladies of sensitive nature and others in delicate condition, were greatly excited by seeing people crossing the track. He had once head two ladies scream when a dog had run barking at an engine approaching the station. He also thought the crossing at this point more dangerous than the crossing at Washington street. Ho had frequently seen men crossing the track and being of a sensitive nature, it had always affected him. On being turned over to Mr. Hurlbutt for cross-examination, a lively but pleasant exchange of words took place, which indicated that Mr. North had he studied law, would have made a number one lawyer. Mr. Hurlbutt, by a number of well constructed questious, drew from Mr. North that he based his idea of the effect on sensitive ladies of seeing people cross the track at this point, on the fact that he had once heard two ladies scream when a dog barked at an approaching engine. He also admitted that he had seen sober men as close to a train, as drunken men. He would not object to hotels having a bar-room, under certain conditions. Bev. Mr. Wheaton was the last witness, and in answer to Mr. Biddle stated, that in his opinion the location was unsuitable, grounded on the same testimony as the preceding witnesses. He thought it was dangerous to cross and a nuisance to people who stood on the platform to have to see the condition of people coming and going from theso saloons. He had in September seen several young men running across from the platform just as the express came around the curve. He thought one was intoxicated and he ran down the track in the same direction as the train was going. On another occasion he had seen a man step upon the depot platform not two feet in front of the train. WThen cross-examined by Mi'. Hurlbutt witness admitted that the young man who ran down the track had entered the saloon and closed the door before . the train reached this point. He also admitted that he could not tell whether the second man came up or down the track. Mr. Fr'ost here took the witness and spent the entire time before adjournment in an unsuccessful attempt to draw out of him the fact as to whether or not tho man could have stepped upon the depot platform at the same point that ho did. step' upon it, if he had come up or down the track. Tlie hour of four o'clock liavingbeen reached, the commissioners adjourned until Monday January 54h, at ten o'clock. - ' , A decision in tke for;^^ not be given until after all the cases have been heard. The gravamen of the testimony thus far given against the applicants, is substantially on the basis that in the opinion of the witnesses, there is no good or safe place for the sale of intoxicants. Or like Josh Billings' theory that the one only right place for a boil to be located, was on the other fellow's nose. m tzr-SFECIAL NOTICE TO OVli WEEKLY GAZETTE EIHEXDS AND PATRONS. The combined Weekly and Daily editions of the G AZETTE will now be issued onrSaturday of every week instead of Wednesday as heretofore.

George B. Middlebrook. died yesterday at the residence of his son, in New Canaan, aged 84 years and three months. He had been in failing health for a long time, and about a year or so ago, sustained a paralytic stroke. He spent the past winter in Washington with his daughter, Mrs. Dr. Barbour: He was born in Wilton, but had resided in Norwalk, New York and elsewhere and had always been an active and upright business man. Ho was the father of Mrs. Charles Betts of Pueblo, formerly Mrs. Joseph Foote. GOOD MUSIC. Did 3'ou strike those two exquisite pieces of music in Wednesday's Mktjji. GAZETTE?

Poyvez died at at his home oil Orchard street, this morning, aged 78 years. He was a native of New Canaan, and for many years had been employed at the Lounsbury, Mnthew-son & Co. shoe manufactory. ^ The Italian's atr the barracks nour Leonard coal sheds kept open house to tlieir|friends on New Year's day, and too much "spoopju juice" set the inevitable stiletto at work. In consequence Pas-quale Merino is to be tried this afternoon at 4,80 before Judge Austin for stabbing Michael Leonetto. From all accounts they must have had a sort of monkey and parrot time down in Little Italy. Our village "sports" are greatly excited over a reported "scrap" between a noted tea merchant and "bould butcher boy," wherein the former preceeded in a most vigorous and reprehensible manner to dislike the latter, although they were in the eye of the law, brothers. It is claimed that he of the tea was the aggressor and he of the fresh meat, the most injured and innocent party. The children are having no end of fun during their holiday vacation, in the delightful pleasure of coasting. Every hill in tho neighborhood of the borough is alive with youngsters of all sizes and conditions, while the thought that there is any hard work about climbing tho hill, is evidently lost sight of in the delight of riding down. But to-day's rain storm is likely to suspend their exhilarating sport. Mayor Keeler's grand opening reception yesterday, was very largely attended. In fact, if all who called to pay their respects to our newly installed Chief Ruler, had voted for him, ho would havo been elected "by a large majority." Refreshments were served and' 'all went mery as a marriage feast." Among the guests from abroad, were an office editor of the Hartford Post, and a staff correspondent of the N. Y. World. In the eloquent pathos and metting benediction of Rip Van Winkle's sublime toast, the sprightly little DAILY GAZETTE would say—"Warden Keller—Here's to you—shake. "May you live long and prosper." The New Year's reception given by the Y. M. C. A., was a most gratifying success. During the afternoon and evening over 150 had called at the pleasant rooms of the Association, where members of tho Ladies' Auxiliary received and dispensed the good things so generously provided. Fruit and flowers adorned the tables, where cake, coffee and sandwiches were served, while the rooms were tastefully decorated with flags, evergreens, etc. The Y. M. C. A. of Norwalk, should eni:r npon the work of a new year, full of encouragement. Their member? are constantly increasing, both i>i the Ladies' Auxiliary and in the Association, which, together, it is licped, will soon number 500. ^ , —Fine lines of writing pipers and envelopes.
