[Harris, Dinner at Horns Tavern, Kennington]

About 250 of the friends and supporters of Mr. Harris dined together on Monday at the Horns Tavern, Kennington. Mr. Harris was in the chair, and after the usual loyal and patriotic toasts had been drunk, "the health of Mr. Harris" was given amidst much applause. That gentleman returned thanks, and after expressing his gratitude for the triumphant position in which his friends had placed him, he pledged himself to pay his best attention to the interests of the borough of Southwark. "The health of Sir Robert Wilson" was subsequently given with every manifestation of respect and attachment. Various other appropriate toasts were proposed in the course of the evening, and the company employed themselves to a late hour.
