A public soiree in connection with the ancient order of good templars who meet in Cecil street, Carlisle, was held on Tuesday evening, in the Church School-room, Cecil street, and proved a decided success.   The attendance at the tea tables was exceedingly good.  After tea had been removed Bro. T. Bell, G.W.C.T. occupied the chair, and in a speech of some length expounded in clear and forcible terms the general principles of the order, urging upon all persons who were at present outside its pale to join their ranks, proving to a demonstration by statistics the enormous amount of crime and vice which is daily being committed under the mighty influence of drink.  A host of other gentlemen, local and otherwise, addressed the meeting at a subsequent part of the evening, and the proceedings were greatly enlivened by some well performed music by members of the order in the district.
