The formal programme.

It was nearly a quarter-past 8 o'clock when FirstLieutenant-Com-mander A. C. Peay, in the absence of Commander Laughton, called the assemblage to order, and in a few words recalled the ‘sacred cause’ which they had come together to celebrate. The doxology was sung by all, standing, after which Hon. J. Taylor Ellyson was called upon and offered a short, but fervent, prayer for a benediction upon those who had come together to commemorate the memory of their chieftain, and asked that they might follow his example, as he had endeavored to follow that of his Divine Master.
