The "fashionable season'" nas fairly com.
hienced at the Northern w ering places.
There, was a ball at the Sar oga the othei
night in the opera house, at ched to the
hotel.. A number of'Southe i ladies wei
present, (we wonder that S nthern people
will still patrohize Yankee retorts) and elio.
ited considerable admiratio. "Jenkins,'
of the Yankee press, was in .high feather,
and in his description of the Acene, writes:
Among the notabilities esent were
Madaime Le Vert and her to daughters,
Madane Le Vert was dresse 7in an ovenin@
dress of striped hilk,. dove c >r and white,
with low boddice trimmed ltl lace, and
short sle4vcs, which displayed her still fint
bust and rounded arms to greit advantage.
A bettioto' of silver chains was arranged as
a headdress and necklace.
ier daughters wore high white dreRses,
puffed with lace and ornateuted with color.
One of the most elpgant dresses in the
rcom was worn by, Mrs. Po*ers, of New
York. It. was a light green m#ire antique, of
superb quality, cat polripadolor, and tIrit.

face chenisette and point lac shawl were
worn with the dress- Another beautiful
toilette was composed of corni colored nioire
antique, with scarf of point lace.
Two very striking and styih lioking
girls, Misses l'anlel. of Baltimore, were
dressed in "water" green silk, with upper
skirts, or tunickt, forming a peplun, and
wide scarfs of tulle,- arrangeo, a la Murie

hair was adiled high and massed and frizzed
in tlhe wonderful way -which girls have now
of getting up their nuir.
Another young lady who attracted atten.
tion, was Miss Jennings. of few Orleans.
She was dressed in white tarlatan. with in
nunerable small ilounets and puffings, and
was supposed to be at bride from her white
rose-buds and orango'blossoms but this was
not the case.

undoubtedly in her honey-mnoon, and was
doing just, as site pleased.

A Lady lises from her Colfla.
A lady residing within sixteen miles
of Raleigh, says the Progress, who has
been in delicate health since she lost
her husband in 1858, died last Friday,
(as was supposed.) and her friends in
the neighborhood proceeded to take tlhe
steps isual on iuch occasions. The
coffin was ordered, the corpse shrouded

was heard in the apartment wlere the
remains of the beloved departed repos.
Supposing a cat or a rat was playing
.therein, a gentleman went to stop the
revelry. On opening the door lie was
horrified to find the lady standing on the
floor, the very incarnation of perplexity.
The brave fellow hastily retreated. His
demonstrations excited the rest of the
party, and the whole crew, shrieking
and treubliiig, deserted the house for a
season. An elderly negress, more cour.

The Reform Riot in Londow.
The London journals ofthe 24th and 25th,
of July give full particulars of the reform
riots in Hyde Park, London-the first intel.
ligence of which was received here by the
Atlantic cable last week, The origin of the
disturbance was an order issued on the 18th
ultinio by Sir Richard Mayne, commission
er of police in London, forbidding the use of
Hyde Park for a mass meeting called by the
Ieform League, which order was defied by
the officers of ilie League, whoinsisted upon
the right.of the people to meet In a publio
On Mond.iy evening, July 29, accordingly,
a large prcesslon was frmed and marched
towards Hyde P.rk in an orderly manner.
Around the Park ani immense crowd of spec
tators had assembled, but. the gates had
been closed by order of Sir Richard Mayne,
and a utrong foroc of mounted police was on
duty within (ie enclosure. The procession
did not enter the Park, but the populace.
Indignant at their exetislon. made a sudden
sweep against the irou railings, wrenched
themi frnom Iheir fastenings, tore down one
whole side, and then swept Into the Park in
a tromenduus tide, to which the police cotid
)ppose only a tfeebo resistance. Then a
body or the Lire Guards came up and charg.
d the crowd. The mounted police and the
military logither made many arrests, and
Ihe people were finally dispersed.
The ntubei s in the lark were very large,
rnd although of course theie were a consid.
nrable number of "roughts," who look on the
police as their natural enemies, many of the
persons present. appeared to be quiet and
respectably dressed people, who had simply
been attracted by efrIosity, and showed no
aproarious or even any political proclivities.
ilpeeches were made at various spots, one
i> the orators being a Miss Harriet L two,
wito deliver4d a very fervid address in the

At one of the meetings, held -near the
