Bygones of Monroe:

The Military Ball

The military dance given Thursday evening in honor of Colonel Oliver, was an exceedingly well conducted affair, and was a decided success, notwithstanding the very unfavorable weather.  We are informed that about 130 couples were present.  The Hall was tastefully trimmed with flags, pictures, and evergreens.  The supper, which was provided at Strong’s Hotel, was a bountiful repast, consisting of all the substantials of the market, with pastry and contributions to match.  It was decidedly the best public table we have seen spread in Monroe.
