As Boon as the euchre tournament was over refresh mentß were handed round and the dancing began in full swinf. Songs and recitations were given after eaoh dance. The secretary (Mr Freeman) gave the Irish jig in a manner not to bo forgotten.

Jenkins 10 games: Booby prizes—Mrs Newton (ladies'), Mr Bonish (gentlemen's). . NEW C&THOI.IC GHUEOH.
