“On Thursday last Messrs G.K.JARVIS and G.W.LEDGER, two of the newly-elected common councilmen of Dover gave their inauguration dinner at the Royal Oak Inn, to the corporation and their friends.  The dinner was served up by Mr MOWLL in a style which reflects on him the highest credit;  and the company which consisted of 100 persons was enlivened by the professional assistance of Messrs. BECKWITH, KNIGHT, MARTIN and HALL, of the Dover Theatre who, by keeping the jocund song and merry glee in constant round contributed not a little to the harmony of the evening, and induced a very large proportion of the company to defer their separation till a late hour.”

GRAND FANCY DRESS BALL:    “The grand fancy dress ball took place in the Assembly rooms at the theatre, on Thursday evening and was attended by nearly 200 of the principal county families and visitors.   The room was very tastefully decorated and brilliantly illuminated.  Mount’s Canterbury quadrille band and the band of the 90th Foot were in attendance.  The arrangements were in every respect admirable.”
