In tlio tions of loyalty wore giv n, and the hills echoed to somo of the explosions during morning and night. Much was spent in fireworks, but tlio effect was in most eases tame, owing to tho moonlight. Holiday-makers hied to the many choice places of recreation and amusement which the river banks offered, but most of thoso who wont ploasuro-seoking, were among tho guosts of tho picnicing party to Crookhavon Heads, and tho Odd Fellows' gathering, which took place at Terrara, but of which we can horo suy nothing.
