A Highly Satisfactory Shore Dinner Served to Two Hundred People The Home-Coming of the Fleet. On Saturday, August 20th, the citizens of New York did their best lo give a rousing and enthusiastic welcome to Admiral Sampson's fleet of battle-ships, which entered the harbor early in the morning. The celebration was an impromptu affair, but the flag-ship, New York, had hardly entered the narrows before* the shores of Staten Island, Long Island, and New Jersey were black with people, and along the docks of New York City, from the windows of the tall buildings and up along Riverside Drive, one could see nothing but countless masses of people all madly cheering the returning conquerors. The grim battle-ships showed little or no'signs of the fight with Gervera's fleet. First came the flag-ship New York, from the main-mast of which Admiral Sampson's twin-star flag of blue was flying, and which was under command of Captain F. E. Chadwick. Next came the Iowa, under the command of Captain Evans; then the Indiana', under the command of Captain Taylor; then the Brooklyn, bearing Admiral Schley's blue flag with two stars, under the command of Captain Cook. She was followed by the Massa* chusetts, under the command of Captain Higginson. The famous Oregon, whose wonderful burst of speed m chasing the Christobal Colon, and hose-wonderful fighting powers, excited the admiration of the whole world, came next. She was followed by what was once known as the "hoodoo boat," the Texas, which has brushed aside the "hoodoo," and shown herself to be one of our best fighting machines. • The vessels were more or less clean looking, with the- exception of the Massachusetts. She was dirty, and, as one young girl put it, "respectably dirty." The vessels proceeded up the Hudson River as far as Grant's tomb, where our picture taken from Harper's Weekly stows the vessels. After saluting, they turned around^and went down the river. They etopped a short time at Governor's Island, and then ptaceeded to their anchorage off Tompki'naville. The occasion was one long to be remembered by New Yorkers and others who saw the parade. The spectacle was very impressive, for these vessels, with their guns and crews, had made American history, and had won for this country a new glory. The men who had done so nobly behind the guns could be seen standing on the forward decks responding heartily to the cheers of the crowds. There was not much time for preparation for this parade, but what New York could do to honor these ships and men was done, and the day will not be forgotten as long as generations hand down records to succeeding generations. • : — The Gazette Wonders.

'J '-' The grounds of J. C. Hawkins' sightly residence at Seaside place, East Norwalk. were last night the scene of one of the most satisfactory clam-bakes ever held in this vicinity. It was given under the auspices of the Union Veterans' Union, and was participated in by nearly two hundred "war vets'1 and their friends.

The caterer evidently was no novice as everything was cooked to a palatable nicety. x; Tke dinner while not of an elbaorate order included everything that one ' could wish for on such an occasion.

A quartette of jubilee singers had baen engaged for the occasion, but for some unexplained reason they failed - -;r -; to put in an appearance.

AMUSEMENTS. : -.V-' • i Shore Acres. That dramatized poem of American home life, "Shore Acres," that has justly won the lavish praise of all the diserning lovers of the drama in this country, still continues to bask in the i favor of the public, and its drawing! powers show no signs of dimunition.; Its long life, a proof of its great value, 1 has been one series of triumph, and all i are now willing to admit that this New England idyl is the greatest pastoral play in the English language. Its many exquisite touches of human nature cannot fail to impress even the most worldly minded, and to the lover of nature the play produces a most profound impression. A thoroughly competent company, headed by Archie Boyd, will appear in "Shore Acres" at Host's Theatre, to-morrow night. , -''ft?- A Hot Old Tim The Rays in "A Hot Old Time" at Hoyt's theatre one night only, Saturday, September 3.
