When ou the corner or Sixth street aud

bored as one of the happiest gatherings or
me wiuicr or w, Much care had boon
exercised Intbc sale or tickets, and as a con-
-cquencc, none nut tho mast reputable or
our people gained access to the ball room ou
Friday night. About nluo o'clock the urn
queraders commenced pouring In, nud by
tcu, the hour nt which the doors had been
advertised to bo doted, fully two hundred
persons were congregated in tho largo din
lug hall or the St. Charles hotel. The cos
tunics were elegant, many or them magnifi

gooil. taste. Among tho gentlemen there
were Indians, Chinamen, a rcrv successful

ally successful, but amonir these wero not

really superb. Among thcc were Marv,

At twelve, the hour at which sunncr was
announced, the musks were thrown aside.
Uood humor nnd hilarity prevailed and
many amusing incidents occurred which
time nnd space forbldsot.r relating.
The supper tables were arranged with
great taste mid tilled with palatable food pre
pared as the genial landlord of the St.

were arranged to accommodate twcntv-lhc
couples. Somo considerable time was con
