A FANCY IK1TOA The highly fashionable boarding house, ovar whose affairs tha accomplished Miaa Smugginspresides with unequalled tact and dignity, was the scene of tha greatest confusion and excitement (or a fortnight previous to yesterday. A grand freeand-easy Fancy Ball, under the management of some half dozen old bloods and young bankers' clerks, was on the tapi$, and ineflecting the neces aary arrangements, the whole house was necessarily thrown into considerable disorder. It was, however, submitted to with the greatest possible good nature by the "boarders," amongst whom are soma of the very sweetest, nicest, most fashionable, most good-natured, and affectionate ladies in the city ; and amongst the gentlemen, several who are probably unsurpassed any where (or the luxuriance of their mouitache, and the fertility of their resources for effecting that beautiful and very philosophical process, denominated "raising the wind." The "boarders," then, without a murmur, ate in the basement and kitchen, slept three in a bed in the garret rooms, and submitted to a thousand inconveniences rather than hinder in the slightest degree the progress of the magnificent, judicious, everysort-of-shift preparations for the grand "free and rasy"joint stock Fancy Ball. The whole of the second floor was thrown open, consisting of the dining room, Mrs. (Green's bedroom, Dr. Epsoni's apartment, and the two closets occupied by Mr. Seedy and Count Blowniynoseofl. Nothing could have been more brilliant than the tout tnumblt of this elegant suite of rooms just before the company began to arrive. Five Astral lamps with only two broken shades amongst them, had been borrowed for the occasion, and in addition to the three belonging to the house, half a dozen of Judd's best sperm candles on the mantel pieces, ana six very neoi 1111 "sconces nanea up between the folding doors, illuminated the apartments with a brilliancy far exceeding that of the noon-day sun. The decorations were remarkably unique and tasty. Tissue paper of all the colors of the. rainbow had been cut into fantastic shapes and hung suspended from the ceiling in graceful festoons. The carpets had been taken up, all the old tacks carefully nailed down, and after a tremendous expenditure of soap and water, the floors had, under the superintendence of Miss Molly O'Flanagan, assumed a really clean appearance, and did nut indeed look at all like boarding-house Hours.? A very liberal supply of lemonade and any quantity of delicious "doughnuts" and ginger bread,weie placed on one of the large kitchen tables which had been transferred to the lobby. In the hurry and bustle before the ball commenced, a number of children, ostensibly belonging to some of the boarders, made a sortie on the gingerbread, but were fortunately repulsed by Count Blowmynoseoff, who was then on his way from the kitchen with a shirt collar and wristbands, which Sally, one of the chambermaids, had kindly washed for him that afternoon. The third and fourth floors were also " thrown open;" and the attic suite of apartments, three in number, and usually tenanted by the goddesses of the spit and broom, were fitted up as dressing rooms. Altogether the "arrangements" were in admirable style, Miss Smuggins declared that every thing looked charming. Mrs. Creen said the same. and bo did Mrs. Blown, and so did Mrs. Howl, and so did Mrs. Splutter, and so did Mrs. Everybody, and all assured MissSmuggins that she would positively "astonish the Browns." Miss Smugging and all the lady bo&rdere were now dressed and waiting up stairs in the attic, in a dreadful state of nervous excitement. They were all in a perfect flutter. Mr. Twitcher, Count Blow my nose off, Mr. Greens, and Mr. Dtddler, the fashionable bank clerk, who had been particularly interested in getting up the ball, were also a little lidgelty. Like generals on the eve of a decisive battle, they were uneasy 'till they saw how the thing went off. At length the company began to arrive, and in a very short time, the rooms on the second floor were all a perfect jam. Such a motley crowd and such a various gathering has never been seen in this city since the celebrated O'Degherty fancy Ball, in 1840. All New York was there ; that if, all the distinguished fashionables of the present refined, elegant, moral resectable regime. Accomplished dry goods clerks and druggists?genteel barbers and bakers?elegant bar-keepers and button-makers?charming warehousemen and watchstuflers?refined tobacconists and tailors?polite shoemakers and shirt-venders were there : hut the greatest portion of the males consisted of elegant men about town, who follow the highly fashionable profession ot living by their wits. The ladies presented an equally agreeable and fashionable diversity of social condition. Division street, the Bowery, Waverly Place, and Broadway were all represented, livery eatle and every style of beauty, from the saucy soubrette of the east end, to the dignilied lady of a retired grcen-groccr up town, weie there. It wus a charming, republican, interesting, amusing, philosophical admixture of youth ana wrinkles, nature and art, vrrdniicy and cuteness, down-town and up-town?alt seasoned and spiced with a profusion of New York morality, decency, virtue and refinement. Such a .crowd! Turks, Spaniards. Greeks, Indians, Chinese, Irish, Swiss girls ana Jersey girls, queens. princesses, peasants, loafers, brigands, nuns, ballet-girls, gypsies, all sorta of characters which the wardrobes of the Chatham, Olympic and Park, and the warehouses of Chatham street could furnish. The rooms were so small that the most amusing scenes occurred in. consequence of the pressure. One fat, red-haired woman of forty, who appeared as Queen Victoria, Was crushed almost to death in a corner, where she was driven by an Indian chief, and a fellow who np|>eared in the very appropriate character of a jackass. Her majesty, after vainly struggling to escape, at last went into hysterics, and was cairied ol*T in the arms of the jackass, who emptied a tumbler of lemonade in her face, effectually washing oil" the chalk and red paint, and sending her majesty shrieking to one o! the rooms up stairs, when she again fell into the arms of Mr. Diddler, who personated apickpocket, and who was just then embracing a tall thin lady, dressed as Queen Esther. Mr. Diddler immediate Iv disappeared, leaving the rival queens to arrange their regal robes, and recover their majestic dignity as they could. There wus evidently no squeamish?no affected?no mock modesty amongst the ladies. Most of them made a most libe.ral display of their personal charms?snowy necks?swelling busts?white round arms?divinely chiselled ankles?and limbs of faultless symmetry, were seen in all their naked loveliness, or half-concealed by the fascinating drapery of the thinnest guaze. And tlvir conduct was equally liberal and bewitchingly lr?e Iroin prudery, ot each it might have been said? " Kavorito all?to sll she (miles extend*, Not once rejscU?so never onoe offend*." Tliey bore the crushing und the crowding with charming good nature, and altogether exhibited to the fullest perfection, that delightful ubuntlon which a Fancy Hall is so pre-eminently calculated, and indeed intended to encourage. They waltzed? and flirted?and huug upon tneir partners' arms? with delicious looseness, and the little episodes which occurred in the '* lounging rooms"?in the lobbios? and in the mora retired corners of the grand suite of rooms, woftld havo been worthy of the pencil of Eugene Sue. " That horrid man prewes against me so !" murmured a pretty peasant girl. " Pshaw, child, how grean you are!" exclaim*d a tall stout woman, dressed as an Amazon. " Really, sir, you annoy me." " Divine creature, allow mc"? " My husband is always at home at that hour" " Mary, won't you speak to me I Don't you know nie 1 I'm your T lisped a stout Utile man, dressed as u brigand, who was following i auspiciously tall |>easant girl, i ' The deuce you are!" exclaimed the. peasant girl, in a rough, hoarse voice, revealing at ogee *'. .HfifcaNO I wammmmmmmmmmmmmmmamEsmammsBcz W YC EW YORK, SUNDAY MO "THE FEAST her real sex, and convulsing the crowd around with laughter.

"1 cannot,sir; oh! fool, fool, that I am! But remember you. sir, that I can hate as well us"? But here the Baboon.who had somehow or other go' tite plump and lovely Madam do la Tour in his embraces came whirling against the fair Ophelia, woo seemed in a fair way oftollowmg her celebrated namesake, and the remainder of the conversation between her and the gentler an who hud, it appeared, been carrying the maintenance ot his character a little too far, was lost. Before the evening was over, however, we perceived that Ophelia'tiad indeed drowned all her sorrowa?in whiskey. "Twu at the sign ot the fork, Young Patrick flint opened his throttle, And being a Native"? "Stop your detestable noise, sir; the only|N'atives we tolerate are trie tvaiivc Americans, interposed the individaal who represented the NewYork Gentleman." "And in troth, sir. but its only by passive toleration that you're allowed to show your uglv mug anywhere; and by the piper that played before Mows, sir, I'll tacne you the dootrtne of passive obedience; so be ofl'wid ye," and the Hibernian, who we must sav was " a little in liquor," here administered n blow to the native gentleman's skull-cup, which sent him sprawling on the floor, to the terrible discomfiture of Queen Mnb whoso gauze garments he had seized on to preserve him from falling, and which of course giving way, left her charming maiesiy in a condition very snuihir to thut of Queen Venus; ulthough in truth this accident to her m.tieaty's wardrobe revealed very few charms whicn were invisible one minute before. " Ha, ha, ha, oh! oh! oh! boys, did you ever see the like of that V' "Of what!" " Oh ! did you ever V' " Hold me, Tom, I shall expire !" " By all the K?ds, this beats the ' dignity ball' all io |?icuca. " Oh ! oh! oh! he, he, he, oh ! hold me. I shall burnt a blood-vessel!" Fortunately, however, tor her majesty, in the nculfle, an inilispensuble appendage to the dress it Heenird even ol Queen Mult, had given way, and a cloud of down and feathers wus the consequence, which in a moment or two completely veiled her from the eyes ol the crowd, and escotted by four or live of her attendant fairies, she hurried to one of the dressing-rooms, and with the aid of a needle and ihrpad, half a do/en pocket-handkerchiefs, a pillow from Mrs. Green's bed, and a stilf glass of brandy and water, her majesty was uble to make her appearance again, looking almost as good as new. " Oh! crikey do you sec our Bill Smith!" " Yaw, 'non tny honor, so it is; what is that he has got with him?eh 1 "-"Egad, that's the gitl he picked up at the Chatham last year?" " You don't say so.

" He was devilish hard put about to get dteeeea, but John Povey lent him some of Shylock's toggery, and she got a fancy dress from one of her old friends of the Chatham."

We recollect a very long publication, by BishopWilkinv, mutuiuining me practiceuwiy inn ru n lucniiy oi travelling tu tbe Moon. This Bishop waa really a learned man, and the friend ol Sir Isaac Newton, who, when the Royal Society was established, made tbe prelate a member of It. Hia "reasoning on the aubject of going to tbe Moon U one of tbo uott laughable exposures of learned illusion- He firat proves thut there is u Moon, and then thare is a world in the Moon. This is strictly prudent, for when a man U suing to undertake a wty long journey, it is butright Air him to ascertain wheie he is suing to, or whether there is any place to go to The Bisnop's mode of going to the Moon is thus expressed?"If there be such a great ruck in .Madagascar as Marcus Polus, the Venetian, mentions, the leathers ol whoso wmgs are twelve leet long, which can soop up a horse and his rider; or uu elephant as our kites do a mouse, n hy then, it is by teaching one of these to carry a man. and he may ride up to the Moon as Ganymede does upon an eagle" We would much rather the ruck should carry the elephant up to thu Moon than ourselves The learned Billion adds, ' Yet I lo seriously. und upon good grounds, itlnrm It possible to make a tly ing chariot. in which a man may sit. and give such a mot.on unto it us will carry him to the Moon." Next, the Bishop talks of making a wooden dove and a wooden eagle Krom this he ttevels to the birds ol para disc, and says:- "They reside runttstitly in the air, mature not having bestowed upon them legs, and, therefore, they are never seen upon the ground : but, bring dead, if you ask how they multiply, it is answered, they lav their VKK1 wn ,HC VI iiii?miviiiri U|VU HIVII lUir III until their young on?a b<- derived " The Prelate in asked, what his travrlleis arc to do for food during their long journey 7 and he replies, "Thst as a bird ol paradise ran live upon oir, a man can do the iamv. ' Then be give* us 'he names of Hunts who lived forty a cars npon air, and mentions a Priest, and a maid of Gar many, and auo'her maid of Fiance, who did the same. The book J? a most amusing exposure of harmless ihaiirditius, and yet it was plaited hy that extraordinary bigot, Dr. Johnson, who thought it a sin not to praise inv thing that was written by a Protestant Bishop. It will hardly he believed that even ns late as 1803 the wotkl of this Prelatn were published in London in two thick ? 'umrs octavo. Perhaps it was Dr. Johnson's praises that induced the London trade to venture upon the speanla<ion. 7 he sketch we hare made is not only laughable, but may bo turned to great account; for numerotta schemes?money-gathering schemes?ara yearly afloat, fully as absurd n? Bishop Wilkins's modes of travelling to the Moon If we come to theology, we find hnndreds of Bishop Wilkinses now indicting society with mischief, and without afTording the relief of Isughtar.
