Birth-Day Supper.

On Saturday evening we formed one of a number of invited guests, who partook of a choice supper given by our fellow citizen, B. G. Hathaway, in commemoration of his fiftieth birth-day. During the evening the Lansingburgh Brass Band enlivened the entertainment with several of their choice pieces; they also gave a small specimen of their skill, upon the balcony in front of his residence to a large crowd of citizens who assembled to listen to their performance. Every thing passed off agreeably, and we cannot refrain from wishing, in this connection, Mr. Hathaway and his amiable spouse, many more years of connubial happiness and felicity.

The Sleighing.

We are still in the enjoyment of as good sleighing as any of our northern neighbors can boast of. The prospect for its continuation through this month is at present as fair as may be, and the idea of a January thaw had consequently better be postponed for a few weeks at least. […]
The lovely moonlight evenings which we have lately had, has considerably augmented the number of pleasure taking belles and beaux, as might have been seen on any night by the number of well filled sleighs, of all sizes and names, from the one horse jumper up tot the eight-stringed “Springfield,” with their incessant musical jingle of bells, that have without intermission passed and repassed through our streets,a nd have by the addition of a vocal accompaniment which though perhaps not at all times in exact accordance with the rules of harmony, yet has cheered and added much to the enlivenment of the place.
