THE KING'S BIRTH DAY. [heading]
Wednesday last, being the anniversary of
His Majesty's Birth, was observed here with all possible demonstrations of
respect. The Militia, under the command of Major Macrae, marched to the fort,
notwithstanding the unfavourable state of the ground from so much previous
rain, and fired three vollies in a manner that did them great credit, and
called forth the thanks of the Major Commandant.
Several parties were given in honour of
the day. The governor had a large company to dinner, during which and the
whole evening, the band of the royals played a variety of loyal and favourite
The Officers of the Militia dined
together at the New Union Coffee House,
Major Commandant C. Macrae in the Chair,
Captain Dodgson, of the Rifle Corps,
and few convivial meetings can boast of
so much thorough good-humour and harmony as prevailed under the able presidency
of these Gentlemen. Among those present who did not belong to the corps, but
who were happy in joining the ranks on this occasion, were
Charles Clifton, Esq. formerly Major.
Richard Patterson, Esq.
J. M. Spooner, Esq.
Gilbert Robertson, Esq.
& D. P. Simon. Esq.
A variety of toasts were of course
circulated; but the health of his Majesty, whose birth-day they met to
celebrate, was drunk with the enthusiasm of men who were willing to risk their
lives in his defence. To much praise cannot be given to Mr. Campbell, for the
excellency of his eatables and drinkables, and the attention shown. Every
thing was good; every one was pleased; and, in consequence, every one concurred
most heartily in the sentiment expressed by the following last Toast:
"Happy we have met, happy we part,
and happy may we meet again!"
A. Fleischman, Esq. Attorney at Law,
embraced the opportunity of offering his acknowledgments to those friends who
so kindly attended and assisted him during his illness, by giving a grand
Dinner, Ball, and Supper, at the house of Mrs. Eymans [sic]. Nearly 80
persons, of both sexes, attended, among whom were almost all the Members of the

the faces of every one present. Mr. Fleischman, who has been 14 years in this
Colony, was further honoured with the company of the Hon. A. Meertens and his
Lady; the latter of whom led off the first dance, followed by her husband and
