Summer night balls and receptions followed each other in rapid succession and the ladies, with their attendant gallants, dashed about in their elegant bug gies, with the beautiful new harness of the horses shining respleudeutly in the warm June sun. At a short distance from the town was a long river, known as the "euse. The beautilul warm weather had lined its banks with green and budding trees of ditl'erent kinds, and the river, pronounced by the kuowing ones to be delightful for rowing, ot which all the young people of Kin-I sfoti were fond, was smooth and clear as crystal. The nights were brilliant with the refulgence of a; full moon and it was not long before ! a grand moonlight rowing party j was organized. li was at an entertainment at the house of Mrs. Claik that the whole atl'air was gotten up.

The several fire companies formed "WednesJay ,a procession.and the streets, an as namea in the programme, were j passed through. The display was grand ' ancl the citizens were out all along the line of march to get a view of the pageant. Three bands of music en- livened the march and swelled the crowd on the sidewalks with those who were ' too much entranced by the beautiful Rtrans floating through the air to think 1 of 'he and fatigue they were iiour the "wise and prudent" began to : assernble at the foot of Craven lrpt. The test was to be the flrs water thrown fifty feet from the nozzle fcrough , nny icei ui nose, maKing one nunarea ! teet trom the machine. The Wilmihg 1 n company selected Major Hall, ihe i New Berne, Robert Hancock, jr., and j the Atlantic, Major D. T.

In fact it was thought I tha' h's namesake, Old Nick, would Jave hardly been more exCited hid he , have seen all four of these powerful ma- chines turning streams into the over heated precincts of his dominion. The Foreman of the Goldsboro Com- PaD CaP.t- La?lb' states that he did not enter into the competrtton for the. reagon that- he underst(pod thaf kaa agreed at the meeting of representatives the night before that inasmuch as the filst agreement for a test on the three points: first stream, greatest distance through two hundred aHoTiity fet of hosBi Kand then throuf?h flye iundred feet hd been abandoned, thatthere would oe no prize competed for, but only a trial of the engiDes; but after the engines were on tne spot a new agree ment was made between the New Berne and Wilmington companies to test oti the first water thrown fifty "feet from the nozzle through fifty feet of hose, and a.-i lie was not prepared for that, and in fact regarded it only a compe tition between the Elijah Ellis and Lit tle Uiant, he declined to sign the agree ment and ordered his engine to its quarters About three o'clock the four com panies, accompanied by a number of citizens, a host of ladies and a group of widowers, took the train for Morehead, where a Hupper was spread and the prizes awarded.

A striking feature in the Atlantic turn out was a number of little fellows, the future firemen of New Berne. The best nair of horses in line were the Atlantics, though the Wilmington 's I are ipjite as line in appearance. j Ml the bands made good music, but : l 1 nn.:.l...I till 1 1 111 I lliou it. cicaiij trntiLicLi n. the premium. The Mary AJice. of Goldsboro. was the prettiest engine in the procession. Altogether the Goldsboro boys present the finest physique. The Wilmington's are more uniform in size, bnt thsy have no such physical giants as Parser and Carroll of the Goldsboro Company, Wood, Slover, Styron and Ellis of th Atlantics. and Pavie, Styron and War trrs of the New Berne Company. The New-Bern's had the old est engine in the line. AT MOREHEAD CITY. si.eL'lal to the J"IRNai. Delightful time.
