September 22, 1870.

     We are pleased to note that a new brass band has been organized in the city, composed of some of our best and oldest musicians.  The following gentlemen compose the band:  H. W. Glifford, Fred Stahel, John Good, Philip Johns, H. Minturn, M. Huber, F. F. Beddow, M. O'Malley, E. Dowel and R. Jones.

     Last Tuesday, Dr. T. J. Day and Mr. Prescott of the Gulf Railroad, started east with the desperate intention of getting married.  The pleadings and interpolations of friends availed nothing.  They would go and may joy go with them.  They will return to the city in a few weeks, with their respective prizes.

     The members of the Unitarian Society are requested to attend a called meeting this evening at 7:30 o'clock at the residence of D. S. Orrison, Esq., on Wyandotte Street, between Eleventh and Twelfth streets.  A full attendance is particularly requested.

     Let Out -- The dog pound, we understand, was broken open last night and a dozen or more of the canine prisoners released.  No one knows who did it.

     Mr. T. O. Sullivan, the famous Highland piper, is in the city and delighting our people with stirring strains that make the heart leap for joy and the feet go pit-a-pat.  He can be found everywhere at almost any time, and will take the greatest pleasure in exercising his skill on any occasion where his services may be in demand.  He will play for fairs, public gatherings, dances or anything else, and at a price that will put all those miserly to shame.

     It is wonderful how the touch of a paint brush here and there in the hands of one skilled in its u se will improve matters.  Have you ever noticed the exquisite job of painting on the inside of the Coates Opera House?  It was done by Mr. J. M. Wilson and is certainly a very creditable work, almost eclipsing anything else of the kind we ever saw.
