"The third of the hiIm of iho 'Pri
vate German oW waa bald al tbe real
bar a. It waa oua o< the uioat atyliah
fcot auocaaa. Mr. Stuart, the leader,
waa In hla nanal good aplrlta, and lad

Hauoock wore a whit* puffed tulle

deaervea mention lor the excellent
maimer In which aha managed bar Im
maoae train. Mlaa Garden, of Park
Avenue, wore a gold and black atrlped
aatln. Thla waa at Parlalan cut, and
waa very rich. Mlai Bird, of Twenty
eecontr atreet, waa dreeaed In araenio
grten allk, walit trimmed with Mint
[ace, and white aatln. Mlaa G ray,'Mlaa
Sherman, and Uiaa March, alao attract
ed marked attention for their hand
eome dreaaea. The aprlghtly. pttUn
boateaa wore a white puffed tulle abort
dreaa, (walking dreaa length,) and
Monday evening of last week,
Mrs. Charles Lemimst gave a very
pleasant so ires damante. The- rooms
were thronged by a gathering of the
elite. On the same evening the "tlx
o'clock German" met at Mrs. Hyde's,
in Twenty-third slreet. This is a new
sociable, but reo*ntly organised, and la
composed of young ladies and gentle
men of the highest social position. Tbe
members meet fortnightly at their dif
ferent residences. The "German" gets
its name from the fact that Its enter
tainments commence at six o'clook In
the evening, and oonclude at ten. This
is a commendable arrangement, as It
enables tbe participants to attend other
parties on the same evening, or if they
to go home and retire early.
We like the idea, and hope to see the
example net by this sociabls more gen
erally followed. The more usual way
to begin the German at twelve or oue
o'clock, is absurd, and we are not sur
prised that foreigners sometimes ridi
cule us for commencing that dance at
an hour which, In Europe, finds the
company dispersing.?-On Wednes
day evening, the young and pretty
bride, Mrs. Stanton, nee Maud Gurney,
of Boston, gave a very elegant dinner
party to her young friends at her oom
modlous and msgniflcently furnished
residence, on Murray Hill. The Invita
tions?which were gotten up very
prettily?requested that the guests
should arrive at half-past seven, and
appear in evening dress. At that hour
Mrs. Stanton's drawing-room present
ed a brilliant appearance. There were
about eighteen couples present, who
represented some of the oldest und
most respected families In the city. The
fair hostess received her guests In her
ususlly happy and fascinating manner.
She wore a crimson and white striped
allk dress, made low neck and with
!band sleeves, eaoh band being orna
mented with a large and exceedingly
brilliant shoulder pin. Around her
neck was fastened a necklace of bur
nished gold, from which was suspend
ed a locket, on which her monogram
was set In diamonds. Mlsa Slmms, a
beautiful Southern belle, was among
the ladles present, and attraocea uincE
attention by her beauty, accomplish
ments, and conversational powers. She
was attired in a lavender oorded silk
dress, exquisitely trimmed with lace,
made high neck, and with a long train.
At one o'clock the folding doors were
.thrown open lending into the dining
room, and each gentleman escorted a
lady to the table. The room was beau
tifully bung and ornamented with
choice flowers and plants, while during
the dinner, which continued nearly /our
hours, a charming selection of muslo
was performed by an orchestra located
In the ball. Everything was served op
In tbe most elegant and costly style,
and tbe entire table service (with the
exception ol the plates aod glasses,)
was of solid silver, heavily plated with
cold. Of the dinner it is almost need
less to speak In praise, being furnished
by that prince of caterers. Delmonico.
In a word, it comprised all that heart or
appetite could wish for. A novel and
pretty mode of introducing perfument
ter dinner was admired by all preseut
on this occasion. After the first cloth
has been removed, a servant, on each
Bide of tbe table, appeared with a tiny
silver watering-pot, and sprinkled the
whole length of the table with rooe
water. Tbe liquid from tbeae minia
ture watering-pots was sprinkled so
fine that the table-cloth did not become
the least damp to the touch, but an
agreeable perfume waa almost insensi
bly dlflused all ovor the room, The la
dles arose from the table a little belore
midnight, and were joined in the draw
ing-rooms, some time after, by tbe gen
tlemen, who remained at the table a
little while to smoke, and alp a little
lemonade. Soon sfter tne gentlemen
Joined tbe ladies, tbe German com
menced, and was led by Mr. Gurney, a
brother of tbe hostess?a vory excellent
and graceful dancer, It the term grace
ful can be applied to a gentleman's
dancing. Tbe very pretty "Bon Bon"
figure concluded the dance about half
past one, when the company dispersed,

delightful social entertainments of the
On the same ovenlng, Mrs. G. W.

Hence both the Free and the formal

of the adult portion have been already
pre-ocoupled with the old Bute syatem

thing both to parente and children: ex

who had aympatlil*ed with the rebel

think I may say, it la eminently popu

wisely ayatematised, and universally

How to Treat tlie Disordered MIutF.
In Maasachusotta it ia proposed to
erect a new and large Aaylutn on what
la known as the "Ghe'el plan." It
Beams that In Belgium, twenty-alx
miles from Antwerp, the town of Gheel
has been for oentnrlaa the receptacle or
Idlota and lunatics front the neighbor
ing towna and ollles. These nnrortu
nates have been taken Into the ramlllee
of the rarmeru and furnlabed with em
ployment. In this way tens of thou
sands or these classea whom wo confine
have been taken care or by the peas
antry, whooe successful treatment Of
them has been remarkable.
Dr. Howe writes that tho advantages
or this system are:
"First?Employ tnent at domeatlo aud
agricultural work In company with
sane persons, and mostly In tho open
air. This promotes bodily aud mental
health, or at leuat retards the progress
"Second?Social and ratnlly relations
with sane persons. This koepa alive
and aotlve the unperverted sentiments
and affections, and helps lo restore tho
moral and mental balance.
"Third?1Tho greatest poHslblo amount
or personal freedom. This not only
firomotes bodily health, but bypreserv
tig self-reaped, promotes mental
health. Bo It remembered that the
very nature of tho community permit
ted more freedom, and more aoolal in
tercourse betweon sune and inaano per
sona, than could be hnd elsewhere; and
that even those who wore restrained by
gyvea on the ankles or cuttt on tho
hands, could still go about the streets,
and have more or leas of social rela
tions with the sane world.
"Bear In mind, alao, that even the
poor wore not regarded by tho peas
antry as paupers, for their board waa
paid; they were profitable, not burden
Homo; and thla ensured respect even
from the selfish, who found moreover
that they wore most usoful aud least

BouitnoN County must have a grant
many representatives In tho Kentuoky
legislature, The members are, at all
events, Impressed with a truly Bourbon
notion that they are to obtain compen
sation froin the nntlonal government
forthealaves made free by the various
measures resulting rrotn the war. A
resolution was recently offered In the
Senate of that Slate, and adopted by a
vote ol 25 to 0, providing for tbo ap
pointment or a soleotcommlttoe "with
Instructions to report aa early aa prac

from tbecltlzona orKentuoky by rederal
executive proclamation, by acta of Con

wealth; aud that said coinmlttoo report
what atepa are necessary and proper to
Onnble the cltUnua or this State to ob

fovernment for such alavoa so taken."
n tho debate on thla resolution It waa
claimed by ono apeakor that Kentuoky
should receive compensation because
she did not vote for tho amondiuent to

General Grant's Polities.
From aneditorial.In the New York
Times or Friday we take the following:
It Is possible to mske a great deal too
tnuoh of Qeneral Grant's non-partlmin
shlp. It Is possible to misinterpret the
circumstance of his making no public
declarations upon the party issues or
political divisions of the hour. We
imagine it will be found to be none the
less the fact that he entertains very de
cided opinions upon every public ques
tion before the country, and upon the
policy-thatshould be pursued concern
ing all matters under the circumstances
that exist. We fancy that thone who go
on the supposition that be would suffer
himself to be controlled or cajoled by
the Democratic pprtyi of recent times
will BaVe no occasion to go very far
before thay find out -their mistake.
And we fanoy that those who have been
led to entertain the notion that he haa
no attachment to Republican princi

last National Convention, and as ad

need to live through next year before
they discover their error.
