X. PORTER FAILURE IN
ourrrr.—A meeting of the Porter men
t wits held at the East Schuylkill Haven
Motel, about three and n half inilem from
this-place, on Saturday last. jWe learn
that the landlord had been ordered to pre-
:pare to dinner for forty persons;' which he I
accordingly did; but, alas! ala 4 when the
dinner guests were assembled and counted,
the number present amounted aoly to 12,
all told ! I And this number composed the
whole meeting: Among the mons pre
,was a special Agent o the ?oat
Master General, from Washin ton. The
landlord, we understand, was quite disap
pointed; he calculated on a rich harvest of
profits from the entertainmen •/ ; but, alas!
the empty places at his • boa , were an
unexpected drawback! We suspect that
the landlord will never again make eaten-
sive preparatiOns on the credit of a Par-
ter dinner in Schuylkill count • .
