    The monthly reunion of the "Melbourner Deutscher Turnverein," on Monday evening, was of more than usual interest. True to their object of lending a helping hand to the higher arts, while promoting social intercourse, the society gave a most successful dramatic entertainment. The opening piece was a smart little bustling comedy, in one act, entitled "Der Diener Zweier Horren" (The Servant of Two Masters), by W. Friedrich, which was performed with an ability far above the common style of amateurs. Herr Trödel played with much vivacity and humour the part of Lorens, the man, and Brummer, a gentleman at ease, was well sustained by Herr Christen. This was followed by a lively farce, "Ein Wan- dernder Schaushieldirector " (a wandering theatre manager), the work, we believe, of Herr Lefranc, formerly a member of the German stage, who essayed with professional skill and dramatic force the character of the director in search of a company. The piece was otherwise chiefly made up of a selection of songs by various German poets and composers, which afforded a pleasing proof of the musical talents of the company, who were aided by a good orchestra. The neat little stage which the society have constructed in their tastefully decorated hall at the old Olympic Theatre was under the efficient rule of Herr Bumbel, as director. A ball followed the dramatic display.

    Last evening a very graceful tribute was paid to Mr. Charles Troedel, the well-known lithographer, on the occasion of his mariage-eve, by his fellow members of the German Liedertafel. Under the leadership of their conductor, Herr Sprinckhorn, the association assembled before Mr. Troedel's residence, in Russell-street, and serenaded him in the good old style of the fatherland. The pieces sung were Spohr's Polterabend or nuptial song, a serenade by Hennerberg, and Schaffer's Liedertafel polka. The effect of the music as sung under the quiet moonlight was very fine, and the group of singers, lit up by the lanterns held by some of the serenaders, was in quaint keeping with the unique character of the ceremony. After the music the serenaders were entertained at Mr. Troedel's residence, and the health of the intending Benedick was proposed in a humorous speech by Dr. Jonasson, the president of the society.

    Messrs, Troedel and Ackurst.
    Last evening a number of gentlemen met at Compagnoni's Cafe, at the invitation of Messrs. Charles Troedel and Walter Ackurst, who have dissolved the partnership well known as Chas. Troedel and Co., lithographic printers, of York-street. Mr. Troedel leaves Sydney this afternoon for Melbourne to take charge of the Melbourne house of that firm, which in future will be carried on independently of the Sydney house, where Mr. Ackurst takes control. Mr. Troedel occupied the chair, and opposite to him Mr. George Conway ably and pleasantly fulfilled the duties of vice-chairman. Messrs. Ackurst, Nicholls, Weber, and Davis occupied seats to the right and left of the chairman. After the repast, which was as excellent one and tastefully laid out, Mr. Troedel proposed the loyal toasts, and then "The health of the new firm Walter Ackurst and Co." He referred to Mr. Ackurst's many qualities as a business man or as a friend, saying that the enormous success that had been attained by the late firm was, in a great measure, due to his tact and untiring energy in all business affairs, and he had well earned his reward, that of head partner of a first class establishment the employees of which would, one and all, as willingly assist him in the future as in the past, Mr. Ackhurst in response; highly eulegised Mr. Troedel as a good master, a good partner, and altogether a jolly good fellow. He also spoke in high terms of the employees, and hoped their future relationship might be as uninterrupted as hitherto. The Sydney firm he said would not be an opponent of the Melbourne one, but would enter into a friendly rivalry, always endeavouring to be in sight of, if not before it. Mr. Ackurst then proposed our "Guests," after which came the toasts of "The Employees," "Intercolonial Amity" (responded to by Mr. Nicholls, of Ballarat, "The Press," "The Ladies," and "The Chairman." Mr. Troedel's happy humour, and attention to his guests, many of whom sang songs (which Mr. Weber accompanied), assisted in passing off an exceedingly pleasant and social re-union.
