Humor, wit, fun, patriotism S^and pathos alternated with electric ^^parks and celerity. "Prom grave to gay, from lively to severe," was this ^captivating preface of tier introduction l^of her reverend husband as toast-matter |of the evening.' v"- . ,> ' V •. t The good Doctor assumed the |:\|agreeble respon8ibiiitie3 with be-coming hutuility, clearly intima-p^^ ting, that after having served as |j .Lieutenant Governor for a score of I ^years under the Regent, he knew his f~,\place and duty too well to oppose any fx • wish and much less a command of hers. ||§|From the admiring looks cast upon the & ^submissive parson after this statement Ipby all the mesdames in the large assem- ! |fblage, it was plain to see that they ilookedupon him as the "model hus-isff| band," while cynics, of the sterner sex, jpllfelt it to be only another exhibition of |||«« the power of mind over matter." |!P Gen. Couch followed Dr. Noble in serious and humorous observations, ^ ending with interesting anecdotes of |fetii8 personal acquaintance with ine mar-pi 'tyr President Lincoln. II The brightest gem of the evening i came next in "Norwalk, past, present 4 and future," by Rev. Dr. A. F. Beard. &•: The sparkling wit, satire, and sober, |p earnest moralizingsj flashed from this Divine's polished lines like sparks from Sp®an emery wheel, enthusing his auditors •» to the highest pitch and won from them continuous applause. ^ fe | A patriotic song composed by a : Danbury D. A. R, and sung by Mr. i Treadwell to the tune of Auld Lang * Syne, with Miss Beets at the piano, was a most delightful following to Dr. Beard's exceedingly interesting address. Mr. Eben Hill had been expected to i fill this part of the programme, but was •/*'' unavoidably absent, but all were de-j § lighted with the sv?eet, mel^j^s ^nor f';' of his substitute. ', 4; % The next number was a brief but h carefully prepared address by Miss I Pinneo, ending by a very graceful readying of an interesting letter from Mrs. E. J. Hill, the former fItegent, jwho js !•' absent in Washington. ^ ? The sentiment "Sons of the Ameri* :1 can Revolution," was responded to by | Hon. John H. Perry, of Southport, in a I somewhat extended, extempore speech, liberally enlivened by humerous anec- ' dotes. -v^:' K Mrs. Parsons followed with a brief but exceedingly bright, satrical, wise and witty paper on The Women of/76. Her remarks elicited constant outbursts of applause. Next came the patriotic and always inspiring "Star Spangled Banner^'' . fiung with a. vim, by the entire audience, amid the enthusiastic waving of small American flags, with" which the tables. had been most liberally supplied use as napkins. , Jte The closing words of Norwalk's famous historian, Rev. C. M. Sellleck were largely historical and biographical and exceedingly interesting and instructive, concluding with a reverent and gracefully pronounced benediction and dismissal from the formal ceremonies of the in every way successful and delightful banquet. The ladies gave evidence of a vast amount of tasteful labor in the patriotic and elaborate decorations of the hall, with large numbers of '"Old Glory," red, white and blue coverings of the lights on tables and about the hall, while palmp, and flowers gave the witching charm of fairy land to the whole scene. Of the, Banqueting Board, exaggeration of praises were imnr»9nible. The tables were ladened wi 'h nil conceivable delicacies to tempt man's appetite aud invite resulting dyspepsia and nightmare. Surely the Ladies of the Nor. walk Chapter D. A. R, whether of the "Coming Woman" clan or not, know abundantly well, the true method of .reaching the hearts of the "horrid men." ' - ' , . • Among the large company present, were many most delightful people from adjoining towns as well as worthy and notable citizens and celebrities from all the Nor walks. The local press had a representative present by invitation, and were given unusual personal attention and hospitality, including the family of Mr. Maples and Col. Richard H. Fitch, of the Southport Chronicle. All in all, the leap year banquet of the Norwalk Daughters of the American Revolution, will live in the memories. of all present, as the most successful and enjoyable social function adorn* ing the pages of our patriotic local history. In all its details,it was as beautiful and delighting as a gorgeous vision of dreamland. NATIONAL CAPITAL; s i The Fugitive. * Another delighted audience was at the Opera House last evening, to witness the presentation of' 'The Fugitive,'' a play which abounded in startling situations, the scenes being laid in the far west. The'sevdral-cbaradters'w&re^well taken, Miss Lettie Sheppard as Bessie, being especially good. The serpentine dancing was excellent as were the other specialties. One hundred prizes were given out to holders of tickets containing lucky numbers, and the prizes were each of a value in excess of the price charged for admission. To-night the company will present "Muggs' Landing," and the drawing for the bedroom suit will take place. BR00KSIDE. Mrs. Milo. H. Parsons goes to Washington on Saturday for a two week's visit with friends. During her stay her cousin, Dr. William A.

Tne horse of Dr. Hexamer of Stamford, which mysteriously disappeared from under the sheds at Charles P. Fish's, Sunday night, was found at 6 o'clock the next morning hitched under the shed just as he was left the night before. Mr. Fish is of the opinion that some one was enjoying a ride while he and the doctor were seaching for the missing turnout. There is a maternal Coolie dog that does police duty at the Hoyts' Nursery, which has recently presented those enterprising proprietors of our county's greatest and best horticultural nursery, eight Shepherd puppies as pretty and cunning as little baby*foxes. Our people rejoice at this dog-matic evidence of well deserved prosperity and trustlthat far greater results may crown the future. MpMSpSix Divorce Cases. There are 17 cases on the short calendar of the Superior court for Friday. Of the number six are divorce eases, of which three are new. The other three have been partly heard and now come up again on motions for allowances, etc. •Uft,nstamft>rd- • A turnout stolen from M. F. Ingra-ham, of Wallingford, was recovered in Stamford yesterday. It was left at a stable by James Powers, pately went to New York. IN TROUBLE AGAIN Wall Street Market. er E J. Wadhamsis with more trouble. A party named Charles Porter, of Groton, through a Norwalk lawyer, has put in a claim of $30.0 against Wadhams for meat. Mr. Wadhams informed a GAZETTE reporter this iiaornine that he did not owe Porter one bent. To the question as to why Porter should then present the claim, Wadhams said it was an old one and was among a lot of others which Attorney Gray claimed to havo settled by cbmpromise some months ago. He said that no attachment had been placed on hif*;,.markf t, although it is understood that Deputy Sheriff Lyon has placed an officer in charge. Mr. Wadhams thinks the^suit if brought will be for persecution and revenue by Attorney Gray, against whom he was given judgment some time since. This noon another attachment was placed on the market to cover the claim of a New York firm, by Constable ire-land* and Henry Smith who had been left in charge by Deputy Sheriff Lyon wan, "frozen out" and Ireland took and retains possession. The last attachment was placed by Attorney Light & Taylor. From present appearances it looks as if matters were becoming complicated. The right of Ireland to ' t»ke possession and turn Smith out is being questioned. ' tax Abatements.
