A large assemblage of members of Auckland Caledonian Society took place last night at the Protestant Hall, Karangahape Road, on the occasion of the fortnightly social.
Mr James Stewart occupied the chair, and in the course of his remarks offered the congratulations of the Society to two well known members - Mr Alex. Murchie and Miss M. A. Moncur - who had the previous day entered into the bonds of matrimony. His wish that Mr and Mrs Murchie might enjoy long life and happiness was warmly echoed in the plaudits of the meeting.
An excellent programme was gone through, consisting of songs by Misses Davis, Peace and L. Davis, Messrs Menziea, Simpson, Criglington and Tai -, reading by Mr J. S. Kelly, and recitations by Messrs .Davenport and McPhail. Miss Fortzer presided at the pianoforte with much acceptance. The floor having been cleared several dances were enjoyed, and the meeting closed about 10 p.m. with the singing of " Auld Lang Syne."
The membership of the Caledonian Society is rapidly increasing, and its success is now beyond all question.
