Diphtheria. --The family of Mr. Henry Brister, of Vienna, Ohio, has been nearly exterminated by diphtheria. On the 1st of November last it numbered ten persons — the parents, four sons, and four daughters. Now there remain only the father and mother and one daughter.
Company G. --The efforts of this company, (which, under Capt. Gordon's command, has attained a good position in the 1st Regiment,) to get up a ball on a grand and splendid scale, bid fair to be crowned with ample success.--The ball-room in the Mechanics' Institute has been decorated with excellent taste, and so far as the visible attractions are concerned, nothing is lacking. We understand that Smith's celebrated band of music is engaged for the ocsion, and the arrangements for "refreshing" the guests are on a liberal scale. We really hope that Company G will to-night be encouraged by the attendance of a throng, and that the fair ladies will not hesitate to cheer the military men with their presence. The ball commences at half-past 8 o'clock. Price of tickets, admitting a gentleman and two ladies, $2.50.
Fayette Artillery. --This "ancient and honorable" artillery company will, we understand, to-day give unmistakable evidence of that vitality which has ever characterized it. It has always fallen to the lot of the company to do all the hard work of the volunteer soldier, in the way of firing salutes, &c., and they will again, at daybreak this morning, welcome in Washington's birthday with the thunder of their trusty field-pieces. The company, in the absence of Capt. Cabell, will be in charge of Lieut. M. C. Macon. Each of the cannon are to be drawn by four horses, and the battery will no doubt be fully manned, and present a fine appearance. At 2 o'clock, the Artillery musters with the 1st Regiment.
the thought that they live in the land that gave birth to the hero, the patriot and the sage. The day will be appropriately observed by a nearly unanimous cessation of business pursuits, and the usual military parade by our citizen soldiery. At 9 o'clock this morning the spirit- stirring drum and ear-splitting fife will challenge our admiration for the "Young Guard," Capt. Geo. J. Austin; an hour later, and the martial tones of the Armory Bank will summon us to view Capt. Dimmock's well-drilled corps; and at 2 o'clock P. M. citizens and strangers will have the pleasure of seeing the gallant 1st Regiment in all the "pomp and circumstance" attendant on an occasion of the kind. P. S.--From the great annoyance heretofore experienced, it is the earnest desire of the Colonel that the crowd will not press upon the Regiment while on the Square. Upon reference to the Militia Law, we find a very rigid provision on the subject, and it is the determination that it shall be enforced.
