A most successful social given by Mesdames Le Roy and Cooper eventuated at Mr W. Cooper's on June 11th, Mr W. Cooper acting as M.C. Dancing began at 8 p.m. and was continued till 6 the following morning, inspired by the excellent music discoursed by Messrs Le Roy, Blair, Padderson and Watson. Refreshments were bountifully supplied during various intervals. Several violin solos were rendered by Messrs M. Blair and A.. Le Ro . The songs sung during the evening consisted of an admixture of harmony and discord — the latter predominating. The young ladies had not sufficient notification to allow of their appearing in a new " get up," but this did not in any way detract from their ' natural charms — at least, so I should say, judging from the amount of attention they received from a host of gay and eligible bachelors. As usual, M.B. came down heavy on " Yankee Doodle" with variations. E.G.L. was there— but where, oh where is that dog ? Dang the dog I J.M. and the concertina were there ; but the concertina seemed to suffer from shortness of breath occasionally. The matron's darling seems smitten with every new face, and kept up his reputation as the Barrier flirt to some purpose. F.F. enjoyed himself very much whilst sharing his chair with his partner. The latter seemed lost in sweet dreams of felicity.
