is from the London Morning Post.
Mr.. George Peabody, the eminent and
wealthy American merchant and bankn.
(and one of the earliest and moat munifi
cent subscribers to the fund Jot erecting the
Crystal Palace,) invited a Bumerous and dis
tinguished party last evening to meet his
Excellency the American minister and Mrs.
Lawrence, at a concert, a bull and supper,
given on a., scale of unsurpassed elegance
and magnitude at w ll Its s Kooms.
Th a nnterta nment is remarkable, not
merely for the manner in which it wasglv
en, but mora especially from the fact that It
was given on the anniversary of the decla
ration or American independence 5 a oay
on which, from feolincs of delicacy, all
nublic assemblages of Americans in Eng'
and have icrunulouslv been avoided, out
Mr. Peabodv has assumed that the time for
any feeling and irritation, in regard to the
day, or to the event which it commemorates
is long past; and that Englishmen and
Americans may meet upon that day, in as
much harmory and good fellowship as upon
any oiher.ot the three hundred and sixty
five;' -'.a '
And it cenainlv would appear that his
feelincs on the subject has the concurrence
of both our countrymen and . his own; for
tho attendance on this occasion was numer
ous and fashionable, ard worthy of th4 un
sutpassud elegance which characterized the
arrangements throughout, -o
And it may be observed, that in thus bold
ly breaking thYough the prejudice attached
to this particular anniversary, Mr. Peabody
has only followed out the principle enuncia
ted by hid late Majesty, George the Third,
on his reception of the first American Min-
istei who ever presented his credentials at
the British court; to whom the king declared
that having been the last man in his king
dom to ackhowledge American indepen
dence so long as there was a hope of de
feating it, he would be the foreuiost to rec
ognize and sustain it now that it had been
formally acknowledged.
The entenainm -nt commenced with a
concert, including the petformance ol vo
calists no less distinguished than Cruvelli,
Catharine Huys, Lablanche, and Cardoni,
all of whom acquitted themselves-with re
markablj snirn. and received enthusiastic
pplause. The performance of Cruvelli, in
the aria 'Nel dolee incanto,' and that of Miss
Hays, 'Ah mon filis,'' was received with pe
culiar enthusiasm.
The company included many distinguish'
ed Americans, some of whom have been as'
sembled by the Exhibition, and many have
como over from the provincial towns to at
lend this festival.
A very singular combination was formed
by the accidental grouping under the portrait
of Washington, and in front of the Ameri
can Minister, of the Duke of Wellington,
Mr Cobden. Mr. Chrisholm Anstey, and
Mr. J. Hume, a living parallel to the group
ing of the English and American nags
around the portraits of our beloved yueen
and ever illustrious Washington.
The rooms were most tastefully decora
