New Vagabonds, who in their club capacity, do nothing else but dine. Periodically in the season they assemble together, the gentler sex at times included amongst them, and invite into their midst some other lady or gentleman, or both, who have won laurels in the fields of art and literature, and then there are compliments and happy speeches till the home-going time arrives.
