This most extraordinary, brilliant, fashionable, humorous, Sam Wellerish, singular, superb, delightful, and astonishing affair" came off"(as the horse jockeys say) last night, and nothing ever seen, heard, or told of in this world before, even went off with such indescribable cclai. There must have been at least three thousand persons present; all most elegantly dressed ; and at least eighteen hundred of them were ladies: and the dresses, diamonds, jewels, silks, satius, pearl, gold, and other ornaments worn by tham on this occasion, must have amounted in value to at least half a million of dollar t, if not more. " Werry hard times, these," as the tender toed man said to the tortoise shell's back, when he trod on it. Before we proceed to speak of v hat was teen, heard, or said, within the house, we must describe what waesaeo outside the theatre, as early as half past 6 o'clock. Although the doors did not open till half past seven o'clock ; and some few ladies and gentlemen of the committee went into the back entrance of the theatre as early as seven o'clock and by half past seven at least twenty carriages had arrived. We will now go Outside the Theatre. Here there was a tremendous crowd, and numbers of well dressed persons, all trying to get a sight of the passing scenes and the actors therein, although the night was damp and cald. But they were all kept back, and admirable order preserved by officer A. M.C.Smith, and sixteen police officer* under him. They kept back the crowd; kept the entrance to the theatre clear, and preserved most admirable order throughout the night. The accommodations for the comfort of the ladies going from the carriages to the lobby were excellent; on awning reached from the theatre covering the steps and whole side walk to the curb stone; they stepped out of a carriage onto a platform covered with green baize, and so through the lobbies, and in through the main box entrance, the whole of which was covered with green baize down to the dancing door, and in this way they reached the ball room without soiling their shoes. Inside tXe Theatre. The lobbies were all cleaned and beautified ; and ample arrangements were made for taking of hats, cloaks, shawls, shoes and other nic nacs; the apartments for ladies to retire into were much improved. All the saloons were fitted up with great taste. 11 the lobby of the second tier wo a large counter ; ui one end coffee was dispensed ; and at the other end tea was served out to those who preferred it, in great strength and great abundance In the lobby of the third tier, was also a large counter ; from one end of that was dispensed lemonade ; from the other end port wine negus to those who preferred it; and they formed a majority. In the second lier saloon was plsced a long table d' wn the centre ; loaded down with all Kinds of choice refreshments, I including oysters of every kind and variety served np in Downing'# best style. In front of this tabls la' dies and gentlemen promenaded, took r< lre*lim?nts [ and walked away leisurely, tom?k-- n?om for others. ( In the saloon of th? third or rather the fourth tier, there was also a long table, and a small cross table loaded down with refreshments Here gentlemen went alone, and man* went it rrong; in the eating [ and drinking line. Tue following bill of fare wilj 1 give some ideaof the destruction mado by this ball r in the good things of ih:s life': BUI of Pare. 1 38,000 Oysters, aimed and 0 boxes of Raisins. ! pickled. 3 barrel< of Almonds, 7,000 Fried O) iters. 3 brrrels of Apples. 10,00# Sandwich.?. 3 barrets of Oranges. 40 Hans.

There were used at this flte 800 oops and aaucers; 5,000plates tmd 4,000 glasses, tumblers, dee. Sixty-six m-n were employed in serving out the refreshment*, and <>n" hundred and forty men and women were employed three days and three night# in getting the refresh meat# ready. We come now to aaother very im;wtaat part of the f.rruagemtnts of the evening?the Kscoratlsai of the Andienee Part of the Haass. Here the arrangements were very splendid. The wkole front of the four tiers were ornamented with J wreaths, roaettea, festoons of fl iwers, coats of arma of tha States, portraits of the Prestdeata, statues t from the antique, Cnpida, Psyches, portrait of Boa, paintings of all his works, atari and drapery. We ' will begin at the Pint Tier. I Hers every seat was covered with white muslin, with gold border; and along the floor of the front d row of seats, green baise was placed lor the feet. j The fifteen pillars supporting the second tier of * boxes were covered with muslin tissue worked in a gold. This, with some festooned drapery at the t back of these boxes, sod on astral lamp also at the >r back of each box, aad a gold upright slab at the " front termination of each box com part meat, eorat pie ted the deeovatioos in that quarter. At the uaual Jj spot on the right of the first tier, was placed the OrthMtra, The front of the orchestra wan divided into fir? golden compartments, with wreaths in the esatre A the whale Isnlssnsd with wreaths. A kens goUea ^ yo: 7 YORK, TUESDAY MOR May-pole was in the centre (rout of Itoe orchestra, with an eagle on the top and wreaths pendant therefrom to two other golden pillars at each extremity of the orchestra. There were twenty-four seats ia the orchestra all covered with white muslin, and on the top of the front of it were placed guttars and tbiuboriacs- The band was as admirable one, led by , and better music was never itenrd at any ball in this city. There were no ornaments to the interior of any of ihtj boxes of ibe second or third tiers; and no one w is admitted to the fourth tier at all. We will now describe the moms or uch tieji or boxes, beginning with that of the Second Tier Front, The ornaments here ran in the following order, beginning with the proscenium, jist above the or chestra 1?A blue and silver star, with a rosette in the centre J?A statue ef Cupid.

This, with n continuous wreath feetooned nil round, completed the ornaments ronnd the front of 1 the first tier from proacenium to prosceninm pillar. 1 Round the front of thta Third Tier were placed all the shields of the twenty-six 1 States in regular order, beginning at the oldest in the Union, and so d^wn; these were also ornamented < with festoons of flowers continued nil round the boxes front, and over each shield were English and American flags crossed.

Over each of theee were placed the English and ^ American ensigns crossed; and between them were placed statues of Apollo Mid the fits muses; the whole decorated with wreath* and continuoas feotooas of flowers. Boxes of the Second Tier. To this, we mnet add, that every one of the sixteen boxes in the tier were fitted up with red striped drapery curtains to represent tents, each curtain having a blue ground in tho corner with 26 stars thereon. Tlie Proseccnlmn, On the proscenium the pillara were covered with striped bunting, and above them were four silk banners with appropriate devices; portraits of Bos on two of them. Tho Dome. The ?atire dome over the pit was covered with red, white. Mid blue bunting, radiating from large golden fci&r in the centre; and diverging at the stage HiJe in curved festoons, till it covered aO the ceiling up to the proscenium. Altogether 7,000 yards of woting were used in the decorations ; which all, from first to last, cost about $2,500; although much was only hired for the occasion. Chandeliers, die. In the centre of the audience part of the house,ov< r , the pit, were two splendid golden chandeliers with ( sixty variegated wax candles therein. At the main box entrance, where the green baize reached the i stage, were two golden pillars,supporting golden can- \ delebrss, with twelve variegated wax lights in each. These, with the astral lamps at the back of the boxes of the first tier, projecting from brackets, and six golden astral lamps hanging from golden brackets on the proscenium pillars, with ths usual number sf sixteen chandelier gas lights of four burners each, in front sf each tier of boxes, formed the whole ot the lights in front of the proscenium. We next come to the Stage Chamber Ssene; The stage decorations and arraugemcnts were the most chaste and beautiful that can be imagined. The stage was widened till it extended to seventy-six feet in width, ssd thrown back almost to the wall of Theatre alley. And the whole stage represented a splendid chamber of carved and gilded oak, with magnificent ceiling to match, of the Elizsbethean age, with deep bow windows on each side, forming a recess with Bests. On each panel of this room was placed a mtdaUirm tabkmuc, highly finished, reoresenting a scene from Box's works. These were twenty-two in number, and cenaisted of the following sutyects.? I?Oliver liking for more 9?Sam Wi lier writing hi? Valentine3?The Bailiff** at Mantilini'*. 4?

They were bung at regular intervals all round the s'.age chamber, and between them were theaploadid solder bracket candelabras, intermingled with over lOOgaalighta. At the back of tho stage, and in the eentre of the chamber, was a drop curtain covering a platfotm and open apace. This curtain was painted like the frwntiapieee to the Pickwick Papers, and exhibited all the characters ia that work. This was draws up aad presented the tableaux vivaato, which were represented by the actors in the following order, ' wth the daacos i? 1.

By half past 7 o'clock they began to pour into the louse, and by 8 there were 2ft<K) persons present The scene was most exhilirating AH looked well tnd happy and in high glee?all delighted. Ai' torts of questions passed from mouth to mouth " When will Boz be here V* "What is he likel" " Lt he handsome 1" " Is he married!" " Is his wile beautiful!" "She's a very fine woman" " He's a charming fellow." " Do you know aim ! " " Why, I've spoke to him." " Do introduce me !" "I so wan't to know him." " 1 sup pose they won't begin the tableaux till he comes."' "What are all these pictures round the room 1 ' "Thai's from Barnaby Rudge, I believe." "I never read Birnaby Rudge." "Nor I." "What's Master Humphrey's Clock!" "Upon my life I don't know." These, and such like remarks, with an attempt at a march or waltz, occupied the first half hour. At eight o'clock, the ball opened. At this time, there were about two thousand persons present. The immense and brilliant assemblage were yet eII anxiety?every eye was constantly turning towards the entrance, and even the fair forms that were now sliding through the dance, gave evidence of the name feeling, and showed that they felt there was yet something wanting t? complete the glittering grandeur of the scene. After the cotillion and waltz, the gong sounded ?the curtain fell, aad the first Tableau rivetud very eye. Mrs. Leo Hunter's Dress Dfjtimi gmmssm "I? it possible that I have really the gratification of beholding Mr. Tickwick himself?''ejaculated Mrs. L?o Hunter. 'Ho other, ma'am,' replied Mr. Pickwick, bowing very low. 'Permit me to introduce my irienda? Mr. Tupman?Mr. Winkle?Mr. Saodgraia?to the authored of the expiring frog.'? This Tableau was received with great applause A dense throng now surrounded the Muyor, at the farthest part of the stage, as Bor. was now expected every moment. I t vain the members of the committee endeavored to form an extended circle, and the crushing, and the squeezing, and the standing on tip toe, and the exclamations?" Where is he V? " Let me see"?" Is he come I"?" Oh do let me see!"?fearfully increased, till the excitement became the vrry sublimity of enthueiaBm ! For live minutes and a half there was a terrible ttneaFine.f. At last the immortal lion of the pageant?the illustrious Boz and his fair lady were an aounced?the orchestra struck up " God Bave the Queen"?tad led by half a-dozen of the Committee, Mr- Dickens and his lady crossed the stage to the centre of the Elizabethan room, where ihey were received by the Mayor. Boz look ed pale and thunderstruck his charming wife was completely overpowered, and with a delightfully graceful timidity shrank from the observation of the gay and staring multitude. As Boz approached, Mr. Philip Hove seized hi; his hand, and said : "My dear Sir, here is a handful of our people?right glad?bright eyes?rejoice? heartfelt welcome?ean't express?overpoweredfeelings"?to all which Boz most graciously bowed, and placed bis hand on hie heart; and then Mr. Hons said " nine cheers,"and, evidently to the a? tonishment of the hero of the extraordinary Bene, the surrounding crowd gave utterance to nine en:l u siaatic cheers. The Msyor had now taken charge of Mrs Dietass, Mrs. Morns having accepted ihe arm of Boz, and after the most praiseworthy exertions on the part of Drs. Cheeeeman, Fiancis, and other mem bersof the Committee, the crowd separated, and the band having struck up a march, Boz and hie lady were led round and round the ball room. Then the second Tableau burst upon the view ol the company, and was received with unsubdued peals of laughter. The rest sf the tableaux and dances then oime of in the following order i? The Middle-aged Lady in the Double-beddec tiooM. [ERA 1842. The only way in which Mr. P:c twirk could catch u I glimpse of hi* my irtei iuus visiter, with the 1-ast danger of U< ing seen himself, was by cri oping on to a bed, and peeping out from between tb" curtain'on the opposite aide. To this manmuvre he accordingly resorted.? Keeping the curt.ius carelnliy clou d with hii hand, to that nothing more of him could he fren th:;n hi? <ac? and night-cap and putting on bi?spectacle*, he roust) red up courage, and looked out.
