StrcDglli fti-f I.oyal Stutc-H in 1861.
As the years roll by we get a proper
perspective of the civil war, and as we
have leisure and opiiortunity to compare
it with other wars we realize the im
portance of o;j3 fact too often over
looked. In our ii:pa ienco and criticism
in 1861-5 wo forgot that no war of
modern times had lecn waed by any
nation with rulers so little prepared by
experience. Tho soldiers of tho Union
in 1SC1 were absolutely new to tho art of
war, and by an extraordinary combina
tion of circumstances the civil rulers
were at the s;mo time almost devoid of
experience in practical administration.
Tho Republican party was led by very
new men, whoso almost : entire experience
had boon in political opposition. They
were indeed ardent patriots, bnt so far

were in lt'l just like passen. , rs who

In naval warf;ire tho Americans of
April, lsGi, were as children, yet in
eight months they had established a
naval blockade the most thorough in
history, and in eight mora their rams,
monitors and other ironclads had rev
olutionized naval warfare.
The energy of the north was indeed
wonderful, its reserve of strength vastly
greater than itself suspected. To quote
a western byword, "We ached with
6trength." No country in the world was
ever stronger for war purposes than were
the adhering states in 1SG1.
And back of all the material resources
were the soul, the moral vigor, tho fierce
and high resolve that the time had come
to settle the great issue once for all.
Only twice in all history has there
been anything at all approaching it
the uprisings of Holland against Spain,
and of France in her early revolutionary
era. Time, instead of 1 swening, height
ens our appreciation of that great and
truly national movement. Tlie perspec
tive of o0 odd years gives us a more in-!
Fpiring view of the great uprising of the
north. J. H. Beadle.

The most expensive dance ever given in
this city was tlie New Year's ball of is:tl in
the Metropolitan fiera House. The floral
decorations of the auditorium were on such
a scale as actually to give nn air of coziuess
to the great interior. When the executive
commit tee of the ball came to foot up the ex
penses, they found that f 14,S.V.t.l9 was the
actual cost of the "diversion"' of a few
hours. Only tl-U'iiio had tiecn subscrilietl ly
the patrons, end Cornelius Vantlerhilt, By
am K. Stevens mid Ward McAllister made
ap the deficit. It is justice to Mr. Vantler
bilt, '.Ir. Stevens and Mr. McAllister to say
that most t'f the hills incurred by the ball
were paid two days after the dance, and
every obligation had been met within two
weeks. The New Year's ball the evening
of Jan. 1S:!, though larger than its pred
ecessor, was not as expensive. A trille over
$11,500 covered the expenses of the dance.
