Among the uotablo events of tho season wcro tho two receptions given by Mr. nnd Mrs. Yo Chn Yuu, at tho elegant residence recently pur chased of Mr. Phelps by Mr. Yo Cha Yun Charge iV Affaires by order of tho Kiug of Corea. This mansion is charmingly situated on Iowa Circle, a garden of greenery, in which i statuo of Gen. Logan will soou bo erected. The house is four "stories above a basement, with bay-windows, baths, cas, aud all other modern improvements attached, thus rendering everything to be desired for a largo diplomatic household. The various members with their families can bo accommodated with all the comforts and privacy of separate households on tho different lloors. Tho residence stands on the northwest corner of the streets cut by tho Circle at 1500 Thirteenth street. It is a mansion well adapted for entertaining large companies. The entrauco is up a flight of steps set back in a yard on Thirteenth street into a spacious hall, with drawing-rooms on tho left hand and an elegantly appointed diniug-room on tho right, with butler's pautry and kitchens beyond. A large billiard-room is fitted up in the basement. Indeed, to the ordinary observer, the house has the appearance of hundreds of other well ap pointed residences. But in this house there are gay Corean folding screens, hand-painted or wrought in rich embroideries in colors that defy description real Corean specimens of decora tive art that are much admired. There are also great Satsuma jars in the corners, and manv articles of homo manufacture that servo to give the place the look of homo which is so dear to those far from their natlvo land. The absence of Mr. and Mrs. Yo Wan Yung Is greatly regretted by those who enjoyed their acquaintance. Mrs. Wan Yung was very in telligent and cordial and made many friends among those who were first attracted by her foreign face and native costume Since her ab sence Mrs. Ye Cha Yun has been diligently picking up the language, which she is now able to speak with much grace. In adopting the American custom of giving one or two public receptions she' has lost nothing of the modesty so much admired by her people. It was thought best to venture upon only two receptions this season, and the two Tuesdays' preceding Lent were selected. There was no great effort made for display. Such simple decorations as grow ing palm trees in the hall and potted plants In the windows and on the mantles of tho drawing-rooms were all. An elegant collation was served in the dining-room. Mr. and Mrs. W. Sturtevant Moore, who are naval people and friends of Mr. and Mrs. Ye Cha Yuu, rendered valuable aid in making all the necessary prepa rations, and the two receptions were very suc cessful. All the diplomatic circle, many of the Cabinet officers and families, and prominent Army and Navy officers, with distinguished citizens, paid their respects. On last Tuesday, the day being fine, the crowd was larger than during the first day. Mrs. Ye Cha Yun bore the fatigue of standlug for four hours without ap parent fatigue, and everybody was charmed with her prettily-spoken English and her pleasant welcome. She wore a rich pale-blue silk skirt, with a yellow brocaded silk waist. She was assisted by Mrs. W. Sturtevant Moore, in a gray faille Empress gown, with a rose-pink embroidered satin front. Miss Marie Moore, daughter of W. Sturtevant Moore, wore a hand some Nile-green crGpolIne. She assisted at tho punch bowl. Miss Cogswell, daughter of Representative Cogswell, wore an elegant gown of white crCpollne. She poured tea in the dining-room.

John Morgan, Commodore Skerrett, Sena tor and Mrs. Morrill, of Vermont; Mrs. John Sherman and Miss Sherman, Justice Bingham, Gen. Vincent, ami others too numerous to men tion. There were fully fifteen hundred or two thousand callers on each day that Mr. and Mrs. Yo Cha Yun received. The customs of this country and Corea differ so widely in regard to domestic habits that those who know from ob servation in Corea how excluded tho ladies of that country llvo can only fully realize what a progressive 6tep Mrs. Ye Wan Yun and Mrs. Cha Yun have taken in adoption tho American custom of ladies giving a public'receution. Mr. and Mrs. Yo Cha Yun express themsolves as dellchted with Americans and the charm of novelty that Invests a now country with an aggressive civilization. Mrs. Ye Cha Yun says Washington will ever be dear to her becauso of tho tender and 6ad associations conuected with tho birth nnd loss of the Httlo one asleep under the grass and fiowers of Oak mil Cemetery.

Georgo Cowle, and Mr. Robert AUisou Shortwell, of Now Orleans, took place at tho bride's home, 1518 O street, at 7:30 o'clock Wednesday evenlue-. The ceremony was performed by Rev.

Tho annual ball at tho Mexican Legation on Monday night was the most, brilliant ovent ot society during tho season.

Tho bed-rooms aud sitting-rooms on this floor wero utilized as cloak and dressing-rooms. Going below, tho drawing-rooms wcro decorated with palms, tho mantels banked with maidenhair ferns and 6ct with choicest roses. In tho dlulng-room, which on this occasion was utilized as ono of the parlor suite, tho massive sideboard was hidden under a bank of ferns aud abloom with La Franco roses. But the ball-room presented tho most attractive nicturo of tho florist's art. The columns wefo wreathed with green and tulips aud Easter lilies. The broad mirrors that lino the walls ou all sides wero half concealed beneath curtains of smila::, looped high, while tho mantel was banked with tulips, roses, lilac, and other cut flowers. Tho Marino Band was concealed behind an evergreen screen. Minister and Madamo Romero received in tho main drawing-room.
