There is none more dear or more inspiring to the true son of Scotia than that of the gifted bard of Ayr, who first saw the light of day amid the tugged Ayrshire hill 188 years ago. Last night the sturdy sons of Scotland of this city, who are bound together as the Scratiton Caledonian club, gathered at the Wyoming to cel ebrate the birth of "r u greatest poet that ever sprang fiotu le bosom of the paoplt, and lived an t died iu an linin ble oondition." Tno Caledonians invited n numborof their friend to participate in the fes tivites, and by all the name of Robert Bums, the inspired "poet of humanity'' was fitly toasted and honored. Burns is the triiusc-nde;it literary genius of Scotland. He possessed the highest literary tiuailitie, combining the easiest negligence of stylo and the highest finish. Exquisite tenderness and humor that is ut once broad, re filled ami delicate permoate his writ ings He had a tine preception of natural beaut and an exalted ideal of patriotism, as is manifested in some of the bursts of patriotism iu bis poel&l of a heroic strain. BN)I ET LAST EVENI.NU The bat. que t with wltichfjthe Cale donian club commemorated the antii- I verssry of bis birth loot night was rr red in the main dining hall of the j Wyoiuiug. Many of the members of the club were attired in full 'highland costume, gtviug the gathering a pio tnreique appearauce. At 9 4 the bau- -qneters filed into the dlnmg room and seated themselves at prettily decorated tables. James B. Skeocb formerly opened the banquet and requested liev. Jiituel McL-o t, D. D , pastor of the First Prebytariau church, to say grace. Mr, Skeoch then called upon John Pirle to recite Bums' nddres. "Tae the Ung uis." as a prelude to the banquet. Ha did so with dramatic etf-ct. The splendid menu provided by Landlord White was immediately afterward at tacked and dl t with vigor. Those who surrounded the tables were : Kev.

Brief but eloquent introductory remarks were made by the chief of the club, James B. Skeoch, following which the Cale dor.ian Oiee party sung Barns' song "There Was a Lad Was Born in Kyle," with splendid effect. Captain James Moir was introduced as toss' muster of the evening by Mr skeosli and was given a hearty wel- corns, in accepting tne duties or nis oftice the toast master paid a tribute to i the genius of Mr. Burns, aud then called upon Colonel F. J. Fttzstmmons to respond to the toast "Tho Memory of Burns." The. eloquent colonel evoked i a storm of applause. He spoke as fol lows ; Mr. Chairman, Ladiasand Gentlemen The custom of annually assembling in so cial ommunion and by song and speech commemorate the memory of some en nubiing .ndividual whose life made man kind happier, is Indeed b"autlful and com mendable. Every nation has its hero which it delights to honor. Tonight we meet to pay tribute to one who touched the heart strings of the human family by putting in undvitig verse the choicest and sweetest sentiments that the mind of mnu has ever conceived. Iu undertaking to add a (lower to the wreuth which humanity has woven around the inspiring name of Bobby Burns. I will be brief. I will not attempt to analyze his poetic productions, nor consider his place In the world of lit erature. Timo has placed the seal of Im mortality upan his mitclile-s stanzas and assigned him a distinguished place among the children of the Muse. He was greater than bnrd and mose than poet. His fame does not alone resiupon being the great est lyric writer of any age or clime. True he won his sudden popularity and musical distinction as the author of the most soul stirring lines that gonitis has given to an appreciative universe. Yet his most ex quisite song hut feebly reflected tho mug namity or his noble nature. The bard of Avon and the hard of Ayr belonged to what was trrinod the common people-the peasantry and neither ever denied his an cestry or fell victims to the emiles of royalty. The one glorified him who would not "bend the pregnant hinges of the knee that thrift might follow fawning," and the other re-rchoea the seotimeut when he said "a man's a mau for n that." H was endowed with comprehensive and liberal views. Probably In advance of his environments. He loved his fellow man and all of Clou's creatures, even to a lowly mottse. He cultivated an apprecia tion of what he found true and etneere. fie extended the same consideration to the man of intelligence and honesty, wheu he found him clothed in homespun, as to him wno was bedecked with the Bneriesof roy alty. He was proof against education. His nudden fame and the regal recep ious tendered him wheu b-- first visited EUn. bnrgn did not disturb him or vanity. Tho great mastersof thought and celebreties of education, who then dorned the famous and historic university met him only to be charm nl by his wealth of knowledge and edifl td by his marvelous conversation. What a i;rand tribute to gemusf Robertson, the dl-tiuguished his. loiitnt Biair, the finished rhetoricians Stewart, the f am. us author of Moral Philosophy; Dr. Adam Sunt!', the re Downed political economist; Erskin, the U eaiest advocate ot his generation, and others scarcely less eminent, nil doing h. iiigo to tho son of a bumble farmer, himself a ploughmau. With all these attentions ha remained plain Bobhy Burns He sympathized with the oppressed of every laud and nbhored a government that circumscribed the rights of the In dividual. We tlad him approving those who rebelled agaiust imperial rule is France, and again proposlug a toast to Washington when the sentiment offered was William Pitt. FULL OF AFFECTIONS. No one ever had a more nfl'nctionate heart. It was enduring aud comtant. The annals of courtship; the history of affec tion; or the archives of sentiment do not record a more touohing incident than his sad parting with the stucere hearted Argylelas- -Highland Mary. His tribute to the memory of Lord Qleucalrn the onlv member of the Scottish peerage whoever befriended bim is unsurpassed in beauty of thought and tenderness of expression. His kneeling and kissing the sod over the grave pi his charming predecessor in song Fwigusson is t quailed only in venera tion for gretnes- by Cicero's visit to tho lust resting place of Archiuoda in u Syr aouseau cemetery. What was good iu Scotia's favorite son bus made the World better. His sons bave brought cheer to the people of every clime. They have been by the children of the Nile; they have been warbled aloug the beautiful blue Danube; they have been heard iu the huts of the majestic St. Law rence. Everywhere under the broad dome of heaven where the beacon light ot civilization shines, tho melodies of Burns have driven away sorrow. May they con tiuue to be sung until the dnrk clouds of sectarianism breaks the buuilgbt of liber ality pourmg through mage the people of the whole earth "Shall bo brothers for a' that." A TOAST TO UHOVEK. Mis Wallace Kennedy sang "Caller On" in tine voice, and Senator M. 12 McDjnald was asked to respond to the toast, "The President of the United Stales." He said that when wo honor the president we hut honor ourselves, for it is the people In the exercise of their sovereign power who make and uu make presidents, Robert U inkin sang "The Star Spangled Banner," and then John Poacocl; spoke about "Scotland, the L ml of Our Birth." There is no sentiment that uppeals so strongly to Scotchmen, he said,, as patriotism, .and when a Scotchman says he is proud of his noble country, everybody must admit that he has something to be proud of. It is not everyone who can boast of having a couutry that was never conquered. "Scots' wha Hs,e," the national song of Scotland, was sung by the Ciledonian Clue party. The next speaker intro duced by the toastnuster was William T. Smith, who was aske 1 to siy soms thing about "Americi aud Hsr Scot tish Citizsns." He said that if be is not eligible at a member of the Culedoaiau club he could at least join paying tribute to that sweet singer, the post of the com mon people Robert Burns. Taming to a consideration of this conntry Mr. Smith said It is possible that God might crate abetter country than the United States, but he was thoroughly eon vinced he never did. The government is the best that tho hum iu mind has devised. Locally, the sons of Scotland have done a wonderful work and havi made their impresr on public affrirs In closing the speaker p it I n tributo to the worth of James Archbald, sr., who was born in the village where Burns first saw the light of the day; Thomas Dickson, George Dickson,- James Dick son, William Connll, Alexan ler Turnbull, Robert McRenna aud James Moir. THE OTHER SPEAKERS. "The Scottish Pulpit" drew forth a response from Rsv. Dr. McLeod. "Le gal Lore" was dwelt upm by Judge H. M. Edwards, and "Education and Our Educators" by Profetsor G. W. Phillips. "The Press" was the last toast on the list, Captain B. E. Morris responding. Musical numbers rendered were "Annie Laurie," Miss C. Peacock; "Within a Mile o' Endlnboro Toon," Mrs. James Cranston; "Battle of Ster ling," Lindsay MoMJlllsO; "The High land Fest," John McMillian; "Hail to the C ief," Caledonian Glee party. M is Julia Allen recited "Locbinv.tr," and the banquet closel with the sing ing "Auld Lang Syne."
