Yesterday being Mr. George C. STRONG's birth day, Mrs. STRONG gave him a
pleasant surprise by a six o'clock tea to which about twelve of his gentlemen
friends were invited. The dining room, which was darkened and illuminated by
gas, was handsomely decorated with flowers and evergreens, and after a good
social time, the guests departed wishing him many happy returns of the day.
