     "--The promenade concert of Mr. Grafulla, 7th Regiment Band, at the Armory, was brilliantly attended on Saturday night. Over 2,000 tickets were disposed of, and the select character of the company is assured, for members dispose of tickets. The music gave great delight to the crowd of ladies and gentlemen."
