A Christmas tree was given last Thursday to the inmates of the Alms House by the Rev. Mr. Yarrington and Mrs. Yarrington. The tree was filled with toys for the children, and useful articles for the older inmates. Mr. Yarrington delivered a very excellent address, and a carol was sung by the visitors. The recipients of the presents of whom there were thirty-eight in number were delighted with their gifts, and full justice was done to the entertainment of cakes, fruit and confectionary. Among the visitors present were Mr. and Mrs. John G. Reynolds, Mrs. Titus Mead, Mr. Denom Palmer and family, Mrs. Doctor Brush, Miss Banks, Mrs. Holmes and Miss Greene.
