August.

--At the end of this day a fifth instalment of one of the longest and hottest months of the year will have been paid into the treasury of time. We hear but few complaints of the weather from our people. If the invading vandals can stand the heat, we can and will. While of late it has oftentimes been most oppressively hot in the middle of the day, the efforts of Old Boreas have not been exerted in vain to render pleasant both ‘"early morn"’ and ‘"dewy eve."’ 'Tis these two periods that our remaining stock of ‘"gay gallants"’ and male idlers, to say nothing of ‘"ladies fair,"’ seize to indulge in the delights of the promenade. The latter has become an institution. Many very pretty faces are to be seen daily on our more prominent streets.
