While tbe votaries of Terpsichore were tripping gauy in toe rooms aoore, those wnocnone tooeotuerwise amused enjoyed their cards and cigars In the room below. Tbe cloak room, generally a source of contusion and annoyance, was so admirably managed tbat no one had the least dlfil cultv. And every one present experienced the uimoit cojojmcui. oenaiors, Representa tives, Judges, generals, and other dignitaries mloeled in the dance, and enteral lntn lTia spirit with aa mnch scst and spirit as tbe Kj;b vi mj juuok luias present. The toilets of tbe ladies Were nneirentlan. able, and we regret that neither time nor space will permit descriptions of the dresses.

We know It Is the fashion to sport long trails, but If we may vc ivruiii.cu to uo ao we wouia suggest mat tbe custom In a ball-room might be more uuuurcu iu tug uracn tnan in tne ODSCrr ance.
