Alu mme dinner was a most enjoyable feast. The large dining hall was filled with tables at which over two hundred guests were seated. The viands were choice and elegantly served. At its close, Pl'of.

Platt. \Our batchelor brothers, the Alum- n;,\ called forth a witty speech from the Rev. Mr. Weible of LeRoy. Mr. Fitch replied to \The Press,\ in a nappy manner, which called a smile on every face present and at its close touched feelingly on the past, present and fnture of Ingham, with regrets that sickness prevented the founder, Mrs. Ingham Staunton from participating in the festivities of the day. At a private meeting of the Alumno.c, tile following officers were chosen for tile ensuing year: President, Mrs. A. W. Moore of the class of' 45; Vice-President, Mrs. .Butler Ward; Secretary, Mrs. Phin- eas Staunton; Treasurer, Mrs. Percy Hooker. ALTONIA CONCERT. The Altonia Society, gave their , annual entertainment last evening, assisted by .Mrs. Imogene Brown and the Westminster Quartette of Buffalo. At an early hour Univer- sity Hall was filled to overflowing with the eli'le of this and adjoining towns. Batavia wm hrgely represent~ ed ;;.s also Buffalo and Rochester.

' An \Italian Air,\ with the encore, \Coming through the Rye\ and \Let me Dream Again,\ were entimsiastically .re- ceived and must have been grattfy- ing to the fair singers. The sing- ing of thCi! Westminster Quartette, is too well known to the majority of our readers to necessitate an ex· tended notice lVIrs. Tanner pos- sess an exquisitely trained voice and Mrs. Sweet's alto was something to be long remembered. The literary portion of the enter- tainment was far superior to any thing previous. The President's address by Miss Lillie R. Olmsted was exceedingly :interesting. Miss Harmon's essay was certainly worthy of high praise, as showing close study and culture. Among those frorn Batavia in at- tendance at the Altonia Society last evening was a musical society, the St. Cecelia Ladies\ Quartette, of Batavia-Miss Emily Telfair, Miss Mary Carr, Miss Mary Howard, Mrs. Dr. Gardner; and the accom- panist; Miss Nellie Lynch.

Be is canvassing amo11g the b11siness men to ascertain now. the project <lf connecting Batavia with J3ufialo, and several other places, is received. He wishes a guaranty of $I, 250 for the fir!?t two years' business, as we stated the other clay. tbe guaranty to be secor- ed by disposing of ticket books to those who will patronize ti:e line. It is simply a method of paying in ad- vance for the business a man will do over .the wires, being carried on in the sarne manner as is the sale of packa~es of street-car tickets in the cities. Mr. Vesey has sound<!d aever::il ()f our merchants to-day a11d feels tlu:t be has met with a great deal of e!lcoaragement, inasmuch as he has obtaiued the signatures of a number to hissubscriptioulist. The name is subscribed now, but the money is not paid until the line is completed and in operation. It is probable that Rochester, Attica, Le Roy, flt.vcn:J, Mt. Morris, Castile and Warsaw vvilL also be included in the circuit befor~ a greal while, and commoeication with all those places will prove a wonderful convenience to all conceroed. With Buffalo, Tonawanda, and the prominent vil- lages on the Falls wad connect-ed with trte places above enumerated, the circ11it will be a large one and it seems as it must result in benefittiJJg all the places. Mr. Vesey will re- main in Batavia until eleven o'clock to-marrow morning, when he will go to LeRoy. II sufficient en- couragement is met with here :Bata- via will be headquarters of the cir- cuit so far as Atttca, Le Roy, Avon, etc., are concerned.
