It was a memorable! event In the annuls of benevolence as well as of womanly devotion to a great and no blo object. Tlie preparations for tlio Fair entitle the ladles ouaged in making them to high praise,', No room ever presented a more cliasto and beautiful appearance than docs Naughton Hall It is an emblem of puri ty and grace. Wreaths and festoons of ev ergreen remind one of the joyous hope of immortality that lies at tho foundation of true Christian charity. Above tho entrance into tho Hall and in front of tho gnllcry, a largo evergreen wreath reaches across the rodmv ' Another wreath at tho other end of tho Hail, Is arched over the platform, and at the highest point of the arch Is seen ail elegant portrait of tho "Father of his Country." . Beautiful statuary on the walls give the room quite an artistic appearance, and contrast elegantly with tho other or naments.' .Numerous Americnn flags those emblems of Liberty and Union are seen floating wherever the eye Is directed. As you enter tho Hall, at the right Is a handsome Oyster stand, whore delicious bivalves, prepared by fairy hands, await a word or a sign. On tho left of the entrance, Is a tine Lunch stand, where flying feet and nimble fingers will answer your call. At the further end of tho Hall, just In front of tho platform, Is the elegant Ice Cream stand, where. this luxurious delicacy, in all Its vrtrlctlos, Is dealt out by charming waiters. On tho platform may bo seen that splendid OKimbo 1'iano, from which some artist oc casionally educes entrancing notes; tlitttdc slrablo coinpaniou for ladies a choice Sew ing Machine, una t to oUiujmit Parlor Stoves, These articles are to he drawn for.us well as other rich and beautiful things on the Fancy bale Tables on tho sides of the Hall. Of these tables thero are six three on each side. They are all neatly and tastefully ar- ranged, each differing from, and contrastin beautifully with tho rest. They aro filled with articles of tiiste, amusement, ornament mid use, In an almost endless variety. And tlio fair proprietors of these tables are ex tremcly obliging and grateful to all ens tomers, especially to those who are liberal in their purchases. When tho Hall was lighted up at the opening last night, it appeared like one of those enchanted palaces we read of in fairy land. The assembly was large, considering the inclement state of the weather, and the wet and icy condition of the streets and sidewalks. But though it was rainy and disagrccablo without, all was cheerfulness. Siinshiuo and harmony within this Hall of enchantment. Major Skiles had kindly sent the band from Tod Barracks, who, at Inter vals, enlivened the scene- by playing, with nuo skill and cflect, soino excellent pieces of music. Wo understand that the band is expected to bo present on each evening of tho Fair. If so, this will of itself moro than compensate for tho price of ad miss ion Besides, the keys of tho Knabe Piano aro often made to glvo forth their dcliciou sounds. By tho way, wo learn that tlio tickets for this great Piano prize, which j are only two dollars each, are going off ; rapidly, and will soon all bo disposed of. Those, therefore, who desire an opportuni ; ty to invest, should be on the alert.

Tho Minstrels wero greeted last night, on their first appearance at the Opera House, with an assembly that filled its ample space to overflowing. The perform ance was throughout one that did credit to these renowned Minstrels, and fully answer ed the expectations of the most sanguine. Tho music, vocal and Instrumental, was excellent, the jokes original and piquant, and the comic acting exquisitely comical. The largo audience was either held spell bound, as it were, or else broke forth Into laughter and enthusiastic applause. Wo predict for Newcomb's Minstrels a most successful run here. Anothkh Firk.

Mr. Carter, in a marked speecli on the suspension of the habeas cor pus, said : If gentlemen in that Legisla ture and in Congress could not protest against another illegal suspension of this privilege, the time had come when, by the laws ot nature, ho would bo justified In starting a new revolution. Tlio majority of the committee of tho North Carolina Legislature on resolu tions to initiate negotiations for an hon orable peace, report, that while every ell'ort was being made to strengthen our armies, they should be accompanied by some manifestation of an ell'ort and desire to secure an honorable peace. Commis sioners having heretofore been refused by tlie-United States on tlio ground of recog nition of the Confederacy, this objection is sought to bo removed in the resolutions by appointing commissioners on the part of this State, whose civil existence and author ity have never been denied. The Blairs Start again for Richmond. mond. Youk, Jan. 9. The Times' and World's Washington specials say the Blairs have again started for Richmond, having learned that passes from the rebel Secreta ry of War awaited them at City Point. Tim Tribune's Washington special says it is probable a resolution wiU bo intro duced In tlio Senate liifjuiring under what law Hancock's corps is being organized, and it is almost certain that the nomina tions of theollleers will bo rejected. The same special gives a letter written by a soldier in Jell". C.

The Richmond Sentinel the Opposition Party. Nkw Youk. Jan. 9. The Richmond Sen tinel of tlio lith, Jell. Davis' organ, has a leader headed "The Government and the Opposition," In which the Opposition re ceives a severe lashing. They arc de nounced as a nictiotis, ill-affected, treacher ous host of malcontents, traduccrs and friends of the North. They are pointed out as eminently dangerous to the South. and If they would quit Southern territory it would bo a happy riddance. Consider ing that the Sentinel says this opposition is contemptible in numbers and does not in clude in its ranks one slnglo man eminent for virtue and talent, and in whom the peo ple have ever been accustomed to conlide, it is strange it devotes so long and marked an article to it. From the Lower Mississippi. Nkw York, Jan. 9. Advices from Mor ganzia, LaM state that all was quiet, and that the recent strict measures adopted by Gen. Ullmaii relative to communication outside of that post, have had a most salu tary eff ect on predatory rebels. The gunboat Gazelle had retaliated for tlio murder of Commander Thatcher, by destroying the rebel residences iu tlio vi cinity of the bloody deed. An expedition consisting of a portion of Nlin's battery and an infantry and cavalry force, had been sent by Gen. Ullnian beyond tlio Atchafalaya, but met few rebels, who fled at their approach. A report was current that tho ram Ten nessee, captured at Mobile, was to bo sent up tho river, and probably to Vicksburg. The health of the garrison at Morganzia was good. Ilrigadier General C. C.

CONGRESSIONAL. WASHINGTON, Jan. 9. SENATE. Mr. Doolittle presented the memorial of tho Hoard of Trade of Racine, Wisconsin, in relation to the establishment of a naval depeton the western lakes. Mr. Sherman presented the memorial of the President of the Refugee Relief Com mission of Ohio, asking for an appropria tion ot money for tho support of Southern refugees. Mr. Sherman said there wero thousands of loyal refugees la tho cities of Cincinnati, St. Louis and Louisville, and their condition was deplorable. Not less than 100,000 white people had been rendered homeless and scattered through the South by the fortunes of war. lie thought Congress ought to do something in the matter, but he did not believe the appropriation of money would be the most judicious means of relieving them. He thought the Government ought to give them work to do for the army the manu facture of clothing, &c; or a law might bo passed giving them use of lands, subject to confiscation. lie wished the memoi-ial to bo referred to the committee on Public Lands, and it was so referred. Mr. Wilson, from the Military commit tee, reported back the resolution to distrib ute the proceeds of the cotton captured at Savannah among the officers and soldiers of General Sherman's army, with the unani mous recommendation that it be indefinite ly postponed, and it was so ordered. Mr. Anthony offered the remonstrance of the National India Rubber company against the extension of the Goodyear patent, which was referred to the committee on Patents. Mr. Doolittle offered a joint resolution di recting inquiry into the treatment of Indian tribes by the elvil and military authorities, which w as referred to the committee on In dian Affairs. Mr. Doolittle called attention to a letter from an officer stationed in Colo rado in refcrrenco to the alleged brutality of Col. Chivingtoii toward certain Indians, stating that ho wantonly slaughtered them, plundered them, etc. Mr. Ponieroy offered a resolution direct ing tlio Judiciary committee to inquire what legislation was necessary to enitblo tlio President to call an extra session ot tlio lll'.ltli Congress, without giving the sixty days' notice now required, which was adopted. On motion of Mr. Wilson, the joint reso lution freeing tho wives aud children of colored soldiers was taken up. Mr. Saulsbury spoke against tho resolu tion. He opposed the measure before the Senate on the ground of policy and of hu manity, and because it was opposed to tlio legitimate rules of war. This policy, pro posed by the party in power, wasabhorrenfc to Napoleon. Gen. Scott hud expressed his opinion against tho right of Congress to interfere with slavery in the States. Mr. Davis moved to amend tlio resolution as to make its action prospective only, and not retrospective and prospective, as re ported by the Military committee. He re garded the resolution as a violation of the Constitution : but if it must pass, he did not sec tliaL i.-o(..inr tho wives and children ol those already In tlie service would pro mote enlistments, and he therefore hoped that it would be made to operate only in the ease of those who should hereafter en list. Mr. Clark hoped the amendment would not be adopted, and spoke brielly against it. Mr. Ponieroy spoke iu favor of the reso lution. Mr. Hendricks argued against the propo sition before the Senate, though he believed that a vote for it would he a vote in favor of tlio slaveowners, because, as the male slaves had all been put into tlie army, it would bo for the iutercstof the slaveowners to be relieved from the women and children. Mr. Wade thought tlie proposition before the Senate was so plain that it needed no argument. It ought to have been passed when Congress decided to take colored men into tlie army, lie denied that the Republican party, in a time of peace, ever attempted to interfere with slavery iu the States, but when the war broke out and slavery tried to kill tlie government, the case became different. Slavery was unorganized rebellion. He hoped there would be no peace until it was abolished. Tho war was in the commence ment strictly defensive, but now he hoped it would continue for thirty years, if nec essary, or until the nation was bankrupt, rather than that it should end before the abolition of slavery. Ho was glad the South had hold out, and he hoped they would hold out in their blindness until they necessitated tlio only thing that would give us lasting peace. Mr. Davis resumed in opposition to the resolution. Mr. Johnson disputed the authority of Congress to paw such a resolution. There was no doubt of the authority of Congress to enlist slaves, or of it3 right to amend the Constitution so as to abolish slavery. Slavery was already mortally wounded, and could not survive even If peace with out its abolition wastMleelarcd to-morrow. Ho belie ved'tho rebels had good reason to believo thut England and Franco would aid them to achieve their independence if they would abolish slavery, us they unquestionably had a right to do. What would the Senator from Ohio do then? Would ho submit to the dissolution of the Union, provided the South should abolish slavery? He (Johnson) was happy to know that tho President did not concur in the views of Mr. Wade. During tho last political canvass a paper known by me titio oi "io wnom may concern" was circulated.

The House proceeded to the consideration or tlio senate s proposed amendment to the Constitution to abolish slavery every where, Mr. Yeamau gave reasons why he should vote for the nronosition. Mr. Merrill, of Vt, spoko in favor of the resolution, expressing his surprise that ecu tlemen should refuse to give the people the opportunity to say whetltcr thegreat wrong oi slavery suouiu do aooiisneu. Mr. Odell favored the amendment. The timo had come when the Democratic party should cut loose from slavery and turn their oacKs on mo uarK past ana tneir eyes to the bright future. Messrs. Voorhees and Clay severally op posed the resolution. During tho debate theTIouse took up and concurred in tlio Senate's amendment to the pension appropriation bill.
