A correspondent of tho London 'limit, writing
from Port Satd, under dato of November ICth,
tints describes tho ceremony of opening of the
Suez Cnnul :
Tho ceremony of Inaugurating the Canal was
held nt three o'clock to-day, on thti seashore In
front of the Qu&l Eugenie, a lino of chalets fac
ing ucarljr north of tho Medlterrnnenn. It was
certainly the must singular tight I ever saw.
People who bavo aeon much more than myself
declared that anything at all like It they bad
never seen. Strongu things hare passed in the
world, Old and New ; but It really may be ques
tioned If tbero was ever anything moru strik
ing In every point of view than the spectacle
presented at 3 o'clock to-day. On a thin bank
of sand cast up by the sea, which never ceases
to throw Its rolling columns on tin; shore, as if
to recover, by Incessant attack, the domain It
had lost, there were the representatives of tho
groat Powers of the Western World, engaged In
a ceremony odd in soma of its features, but
touching to those who saw It to a greater degree
than will perhaps be credited by those who read
un attempt nt tho description of It Remember
that Port Satd is situated on n mere strip of
bench seperallng the .Mediterranean from the
Salt Water Lake, or Inland sta pf Menzoloh
the Peluslao Gulf which spreads right und left
for many miles away, and oxtends inland further
than the eye can reach. The port is cut out of
Mfcs' iwl -v.tfrr,rlo which I reerct I cannot Jo
j justice. Addressing the great people on the
platform, he declared that history would record
that day as the most memorable, not only of the
nineteenth century, but nlmost of the world.
Tho work which had huen said Impossible, had
been accomplished. There was no longer an old
world nnd n new. Turning lo the cast, ho hailed
the splendid rudlnnt mother of our nice, the
nurse of civilization, nnd the cradle of our faith.
Turning to tho west, he apostrophized tho old
Europe, from which had come new life to man
kind. The sublime grandiose operation, which
men bad pronounced to be futile, would unlti
all nations. Tho material aspect of tho Canal,
important and interesting as it was, with a glo
rious future, must not be permitted to make us
loose sight of the grand relations of the work to
civilization and the happiness of mankind, lie
called on them to render homage to Ibe ruler
who had by his liberal policy encouraged the
enterprise. Let blm receive from priestly lips
the expression of Christian gratitude for the gen
erous protection accorded to their faith. He
bad wisely and bravely encouraged the grand
work, and Egypt would call blm her regenera
tor, and history would Inscribe bis name on the
noble roll of tbe benefactors of humanity. In
the land of the Pharaohs he bad struck on the
fetters of nnclent prejudices, and had seen In the
country which was famous for its nnclent gran
deur and for the evidence of Its old glories, a
work which would do far more for the happiness
of the whole human family. A very charming
passage was devoted to tbe man to whom so
much was due. whose genius, fortitude, nnd al
most superhuman enenry. contending against
childred in red nnd bluo wading nbout them,
scarcely heedful of the striking show; to the
right the smoking cntnioii. telling tbe tale of the
august arrivals ; still further on the gay, nodding
colors and clustered masts of tho port, and be
bind all ;ho broad .Mediterranean, dotted here
and tberu with sails atenling calmly away into
the pure delicate blue of the northern sky. Tbe
costumes of Christian and Mabomraedan, of
Arab, Greek. Egyptnin, Jew, nnd Gentile, of tbe
preacher of peace and the minister or war, the
fur-bordered cloak of th Russian and the cot
ton wrappings of tho African, the sombre black
of tbe citizen and tbe embroidered stole of tbe
Catholic as be made lib way with cross and sym
bol to the altar all these were there, wrought
Into n picture for which even tbo great Empress
memory, crowded though It bo with souvenirs of
fiits nnd ceremonies, could scarcely have found
a pareltel In unique union of scenery and situation.

Waltzing Match in a Pittsburgh Hall
Tho Pittsburg'aattrte: tells thU story of foll:
UA few evenings since a bait was held In one of
the balls of tbe city, nt which a large number or
the young folks wercln attendance. Among tho
attractions of the evening was a prize, a gold
ring, offered to the lady who should outwattz all
competitors. At twelve o'clock the band struck
up I'acdtio, and a fnll dozen competitors took
their places on tbe floor, entering for the coutet'.
At tbe expiration of twenty minutes, four of the
couples gave away and took their seats, leaving
the rest twirling and whirling In the giddy and
intoxicating dance. One hour more there wete
but three couples on the liuor, nud the dance
went on until another Lour had passed, when
from sheer exhaustion another couplegave away,
leaving the floor to tbe remaining two pair of
terpUcborean devotees. Tbe band of music
played and played nnd played, and tbe four fast
tailing dancers danced and danctfd and danced,
till even those who looked upon them grew sick
and dizzy. At tbe end of the fourth hour tbe
nmslclaos grew feeble and from tbe finger ends
of tbe violinists tbe blood trickled to the floor
but still tbey supplied the movlug power to keep
the dancers going. The excitement grew Intense
as tbe firth hour or the dance came on, and there
were those present who insisted on putting an
end to tbe merry though reckless quartette sui
cide. However, no Interference was permitted,
and prize dance over tbe jaws of death went on.
After Are hours and tbree minutes had elapsed
one of the ladles fainted, and her partner quick-,
ly followed ber example, and, amid cheers, the
prize was awarded to tbe other couple, wbo
damages. Tbe two cou tee ting girls were near'
