The Fourth was celebrated at Stevens Point, by the Ladies, the bolder sex having failed in their patriotism, to make suitable preparations. Below will be found the order of proceedings, as conducted for the day, it was every way creditable to the place; as a picnic, it reflects the highest credit on those fair hands and warm hearts that got it up.

The day was auspicious, the orator was eloquent, the Ladies wore their most radiant roses and smiles, and the gentlemen, as in duty bound, (they could do that at least,) did honor to the viands, cakes &c. They will remember for many days the patriotism and '76 like spirit of the fair of Stevens Point.
