E n?Great Ex pectations Fully Realized?Reception?Company ?Beauty, Fashion, and Novelty in Abundance ? Splendid Banquet?The Greatest Affair of the Kind that Ever Took Place in Baltimore? Worthy of Recording in the Herald?More Anon, tyc. Dear Sir :? On Thursday the 13th instant, came oil. in tine style, the fancy ball of Dr. T. E n. Expecta tion, which had been for weeks on tip-toe for the event, has been fully justified by the result. The most sanguine hopes of the Amphytrion have been more than realized; and he may congratulate nim selt at having achieved the most dramatic stroke in the world of fashion hereabouts, since the palmy days of our ci-devant banker and great man, Ben C?h?n. _Tne patrician pedigree of our friend the Doctor?his distinguished and enviable position in our aristocratic circles, (the purest and freest from plebeian alloy, and founded on the most legitimate basis, perhaps, of any in the Union,) gave just and peculiar interest to the imposing occasion. No mean adjuncts to these, were, his large fortune? his single state?his elegant manners?his fine per sonal appearance?"severe in youthful beauty"? and lust, not least, his thorough knowledge of the world, acquired by a various and extensive commtrce with its denizens? " White spirits and black, Blue spirits and gray." The company consisted of about seventy persons. This, without counting four or five "ancient mat rons," who watched behind the screen, and who, along with Murray and his brotherhood, formed the sole audience to these private theatricals, with 'he exception of certain gens huppis in Gay and Franklin streets, included the demoiselle fashion of the town. Our Amphytrion, " all plaided and plum'd in his tartan array," received his distinguished guests with a proud elegance, which was admired by more than the poor girls, and peeping mothers with daughters undisposed of. The dress and character of a Highland Chief, which he assumed, accorded well with his commanding figure, and occasioned the remark, that he bore himself like one who had rather the blood of the Stuarts in his veins, than merely the figure of their plaid on his back. Throughout the whole ceremony of reception, which lasted from nine till ten, the thorough bred gentleman never a moment faltered. Cold shoulders, and nods ot invidiousdiscrimination,were shown te none?the same urban salute, and gracious emile to all. For the nonce, even the least considered were treated as if his equals both in birth and sta tion. by ten, the rooms were filled ; but how describe the curious scene 1?with whom commence! ? Miss N. O'D 1, at night, as fair a star as ever twinkled " in the firmament of earth," surpassed herself. Magnificently dressed in the character of a Sultana,? " She smil'd a Ooddess and she look'd a Queen." Behind her, of equal rank, and supporting the same character,though somewhat dumpy for an Oriental Princess, came Miss A. E H 1. This lady, ar rayed in a dress which sparkled with innumerable silver Bpangles, looked less the Sultana, than? "change for a guinea " Her beauty, though "of the earth,earthy," might well entice a god from hea ven Her hair, dark and beautiful as night?her eye? " Fair as a star, when only one Is shining in the akv." While, " On the perfum'd pillow of her lip, As on his native bed ef roses, flnsh'd With Paphian skies, love smiling slept." What gem within of "purest ray serene," should honor such a sitting! Her sister,"Miss M A. H?1, wore a black dress, which, as she has been to Ha vana, and, as her mother gives it out, speaks Span ish, wc presume was intended as the costume of a Spanish lady. A veil, to match, was worn in such a way as to conceal her whole face, except her eyes?an exotic fancy, probably imported by her self, and which, with the ill-natured, would seem to bespeak for her more discernment than beanty However, her eyes, we are sure, were well enough. The South was well represented by the gay and engaging Miss B?g?n, at present the guest of Mrs. Saml. H?-n, and who appeared in the character of the " White Lady of the Avenal." Her animated lace and graceful figure gave plea sure to all and beauty to the dance Your own city was also well represented by the beautiful Miss B?g?re, at present en a visit to Miss Anne S? th ; but who, unfortunately, arrived here too late to prepare a fancy drew. Miss S?th, with dewy lips and blushing cheek, well became her part as Aurora, "the rosy-finger'd daughter of the dawn " Miss J?t B?k?d, in the character of Helen Mc Gregor, made u distinguished appearance. Her tall figure, set off by a rich Scottish dress, and pis tols at her side, gave her an air as formidable to her lovers as was her prototype to her foes. Her sister, Miss A?g?a, as Rowena, would have well adorned those lists, on which " Bright eyes Rain'd influence, and adjudg'd the prize." Their "weird sister," Miss B?y B?k?d, per formed her part as a fortune-teller to perfection, as more than one of her subjects can attest. Those who think this lady without wit,by so tninking,give a poor token of their own; and those who say so. it she should come to hear it, will have a good reason to change their opinion. Miss M?d?th, discarded, on this occasion, the wings and wand ot a fairy, which, whilome.and in the banker's time, she dazzled in ; and which, it may be said, in pass ing, would have found more ado then, to fly with her, than now. Instead, she assumed the charac ter of" Fair Star," an idea which, if not fairy-like, has, at least, the merit of being drawn from a fairy tale. To Bupoort it, she loaded her shoulders with a prolusion ot ringlets, and adorned her slight fore head with an amide star, which glittered there, companionless and lone,?no emblem, let us hope, presaging for the wearer equal fate. Miss N?y M?s, modest as a violet, and as sweet, perfectly well bred, and yet lady-like in all things, as much ironigood feeling as good breeding, appeared lit the loveliest ot all characters?her own. Miss M?y J?n, stately as Juno, and as fair, adventured the same experiment?unless, indeed, the flowers in her hair, and over her dress, betokened spring How charms so rare have failed so long their well deserved meed, what wizard can expound 1 Her mother, who is full ot executive talent, and, if Napoleon's definition be true, of greatness, should dedicate a portion of her energies to this, tor rea sons which thicken apace. The daughter of our Mayor, attired as a Scotch peasant, moved with the hearts ot all:? " Her graceful eaae, and iweetneaa, void of pride. Would hide her fault*, if ahe had fauita to hide." Miss W?d?lie, in the same character, is quite a stylish looking person. It she possesses the gentle ness and sweetness that show so fair in the smiling countenance of Miss L'?, which is very probable, nature has perpetrated a libel upon her, the publi cation ot which she would be entitled to great praise if she could invent a means to restrain. Miss tS?a H?AT?n, as a Spanish dan*eu?c scarlet dres and cap, was beautiful. Miss H?fl?n,?to invert the order of ptecedence, for which wa beg pardon ?as a fairy, attracted her proper share of homage. Miss M?g?it 11?ly, a sybil, Miss E? ih R?y, in Turkish dress, scarlet, and richly embossed dagger, impersonated "that dark-eyed lady, young Oil nare." The third sister, as Fanela, with her dark wreaths ot hair, floating over her neck like shadows over snow, her eyes full and black, "that would bear a world ol looking in before their depth was fathomed," would have done more in subduing het country's foes than even the chivalry of her father, the gallant Commodore. Miss C? W?s, as h Swiss peasaut girl, and looking "excellent well " She ib a sweet and amiable woman, and would be an agreeable one, did she only have an adequate appteciatizn of ihe couplet which says? 11 It is rcmarkabls that they Talk most, who have the least to lay." But our space is on the wane: leaving, therefore, though with reluctant hearts, a bright array of fairies, heroines, and sylphs, we turn lor a moment to the gentlemen. Mr. H. B?d, Esq., as a gentleman ot the old ?ichool, supported a character which is in harmony with hia usual undeviaiing courtesy of heart and manner. The agreeable and rare qualities of this gentleman render him in all circles a welcome guest. Dr. T? B?r, by means of a domino, suc ceeded in concealing his fine person, but not his wit and talenta. " L'Knfant cheri de* dames II eat dan* tout* pay* Trea Men avec lea IV mine* Mai avec lea maris " Mr. F. F wore the aame drees, less, we presume* lor concealment, than in ihr hope ot being urged* hy some imploring fair, to unmask Our 7*r?il> n ' money mnkingfriend f-omabroad^ Mr D who h?> louft surprised the ladiesby Ins nipieriou* and inveterate bachelorship, surptised ihem sul1 more, on thia occasion, by induing himself with the character of a blacx mute and slave attendant to the peerless Sultana, Miss A. E. H. It is, how ever, but justice to say, that he was seized, at the last moment, with a repentant misgiving, and though fairly in for it, was with difficulty induced 'o tnaki* his appearance. The Orientals have n roup de nialtre, by which, with certain household dignitaries, they occlude "foregone conclusions." Mr. U s, being a "travelled man," may have met this institution by the way. Mr. T. H. M., ("to name him is to praise") was dressed in the military costume of the age of Louis XIV His youngest brother, the learned and amateur disciple of Etcnlapius, Mr. Jno. B. way of ingenious contrast, disguised his noble port, and taught thoughtful, student air in the outward seeming of an " English booby." In this he acted so well his nart that a careless observer had supposed he mere ly gave a vent to nature. To which of the two, the red coat or the wig, is to be ascribed the merit, I determine not, but he was evidently in high vein This was apparent from his impetuous and devoted attention to Miss B?y B?k?d. I doubt, however, if she fully sympathized with his tender and sigh ing cmpresscmentj albeit some have gravely declar ed that it will be a match yet. Therefore, nil de* perandum, most learned Theban ! Dr. S?n, ano ther confrire, by courtesy ot the Esculaptan broth erhood, appeared as an old gentleman of the old school; a very happy idea in him, inasmuch as the less he acted the nearer he came to life If he will pardon me tor the suggestion, it would have been a distingui improvement in his toilette, in stead of putting on a wig, to take one off. The pursuit of the Dr , if not philosophy, has at least been philosophical, though perhaps as he so tardily " arrives at the point proposed," he may be dispo sed to doubt this. Our friend, Mr. Oeorge T , strode before us, a grave and solemn Turk. This I was pleased to see, for it is not every brain has wit enough to discover that gravity conceals a multitude of defects. He is a great favorite of the ladies, though from the manner in which he fights shy of them, I presume he knows the reason as well as they?pus si bite. Mr. M?th, soi disant lawyer, esteeming himself under no great obliga tions ot gratitude to his profession, arrayed him self, not in gown and wig, but in panoply of Mars. Sword, epaulette, and big brass buttons spotting tiim about, did what they could to eke out the grenadier, " Celt un ion soldat, mail c'eit en temps de pais." Mr. J., a gentleman of certain aristocratic pre tensions, in the. South, but who is remarkable in Baltimore for his quiet ease and elegant wit, assu med the character of a tar. The dress was well enough, althoug it marred the chiselled beauty of his features, the placid smile ot his mouth, " his attic forehead and his Phidian nose." If he would only laugh at times, not loud, for? " The loud laugh bespeaks the vacant mind but moderately, and especially at his own witicisms, lie would be the most thorough bred and Chester fieldian gentleman in the new world Of Mr. W. W?s ot St. Paul street, dress or address, it would be in vain for us to attempt a description; " For true no meaning puzzles more than wit." But the most amusing character of all was Mr. James B. M.? " This lair round belly with good capon lined," his full face, smiling in rosy rotundity, seemed es pecially blown up tor the occasion. SportiDg the wings and accoutrements of Cupid, a chubby cheeked Love made he, l'faith, reminding one ol the classical line? " %/imo clasticum et amo rum." A short red frock, corresponding with face oi same nue, gaudily trimmed and turbelowed, arms bare, a diminutive bow and quiver, he was " the obser ved of all observers," and as? " His arrow was tip'c with a jewel, And shot trom a silver string," few hearts there proved impervious to his aim. But enough of persons. The evening came off trippingly, and wnh spirit. Nearly every one was ? n fancy dress, and all were zealous to contribute u mile ot pleasantry to swell the general stock.? Refreshments were passed about between the co tillons, to which succeeded a splendid banquet, honorable to the host and honored by the gueBts Whilst at table I joined the Amphytrion in a glass of wine, and suggested that as this was the great est Baltimorean affair, in upper circles, we had had ior many years, it was worthy a place in your co lumns. He agreed with me heartily, and inti naied that he had given the matter in chaige cf he old ladies behind the scene, or, to be less tigurative and more exact, behind the screen, and particularly to Mrs V a and Mrs. H n. 1 congratulated him upon bis choice, and whilst he -queezed my hand in affectionate acknowlegment, observed, that Mrs. V a, huving ostracised her household god to South America, and enjoying thereby an elegant leisure, was deeply accomplish ed, and a sort ot imperial arbitrese in matters ot "high life and high-lived people, Shakspeare, taste, poetry, and the musical glasses." Unfortunately, lowever, our fcmmes savants were unable to ac cord upon the embarrasaing question ol literary < recedencc, and umpirage of disputed points, eacn me, with a tenacity characteristic ot genius, be ing unwilling to compromise self love to another, >r yield her better reason to a worse. Thus perish ed, midway born, a most laudable enterprise, and -ogeueral, and so poiguani Wdsihe disappointment, ihat we resolved, as a matter of mere charity, to supply, so far as in us lay, by this unpretending pro duction, the untoward failure. In everv event the loss ot Doctor T must be great. We are not without hope, however, that our humble offering may mitigate the rigor ot his grief, and dry the "waterdrops," which at the first intelligence of di vision among the literary sisterhood, "stained his nnnly cheeks." The present description being hastily sketched, and in many respects defective, we will resume he subject at an early date, entering more into de tail upon tfye matter ol costumes, and doing jus iice to those whom, on this occasion, we have neen constrained to neglect. For the present therefore, vale. Mkptiistoi' Colored Colony in Canada.?Mr. Hanson, a colored agent for the sell-emancipated slaves in Canada, made a statement of the condition of the colon; before the Congregational Societies in this village on Sunday and Monday evening, from which we gatner the lollowing information. The colony at present consists of more than 15,000 per sons, and is rapidly increasing. All made their escape irom different slave holding States at different periods, and by different processes , some have resided there ibout IS years ; but the majority for a shorter period. They are not compactly located, but scattered ever a tor ritory a hundred milea in length by sixty in breadth ; the louthern point is abjut 40 miles above Detroit, Michigan, in the eastern side of the river. The land is t xtremely fertile, producing wheat, corn, oats, rye, and tobacco. Which find a ready market in Detroit and the neighboring towus and settlements. Most of the colaniats own tracts ?if ten, 15 and -JO acres, mostly under cultivation, whilst others, more enterprising or older resident*, are large and prosperous farmers. Ardent suit its are nearly abandon 'd, not one in a hundred oi the people making use of them. Though the colonists are scattered over so laigo a ter ritory, the greatei part are located in villages anu neigh hoi hoods, so that considerable congregations can be ga thered A white population is mingled with them, eon nsting of French, Irish and English, the greater part ot ?vhom are as ignorant as the runaway slates. Ot three hundred negroes the agent had seen collected at n religi ous meeting, not one could read ; neither could he him -ell, though a Methodist preacher, till he was instructed by his little boy. An attempt Is now makirg to erect a seminary at the cost of $-1,090, in which -100 negro Child ren and youth may be insttuctnd at a time. Rev. Mr. Wilson, a Cougrtgationalist minister, has lor seven years levoted himselfdo the service of the colony, and is a sort of superintendent of all their interest! A committee i t respectable and pious men in Nrw Yotk examine all ac counts, and publish an acknowledgmtnt of receipts As the colony are mostly Methodists, we wonder the deno mination makes no provision for their spiritual and edu rational necessities.?Cong.

Jackson, of this city, in n rencounter at ihc St Louis Ball Room, on the night of the 4th inat., came on before Recorder Genois, In New Orleans on the 13th inst. There was a large crowd of persons preseut, eager to hear lie < x urn .ation. No witnesses were called; but the atfi lavi's ot Francois Andry, Hortaire Andry, P. H Huanl, iDd G Legendre, reciting the particulars of the unlortu iste affair, were read to Mr. Hatch in the hearing of his counsel, by the Recorder, who stated that under the cir e am stances of the case it was his duty to send the papers before the Urand Jury, and to commit him to atan.l his trial on the charge ot murdar. John R. Orymes, F.sq., one ol air Hatch's counsel, stated that this course w?? what he desired.

City Election?A Mayor at I-ast?The Natives Tri umphant?Grand l^evee of the Natives?Distin guished Guest* Invited?Inauguration Ball?Hor rible State of the Streets? Cabinet Speculations?A Mammoth Hotel?A Railroad Fever, etc. . G. Bennett, Esq :? While I am cogitating on the material! for an epistle to the cosmopolite paper of the age, the big guns are pouring forth their thunder of rejoicing on the occasion of the election of Thomas A. Davis, the " native" candidate for Mayor. The deed was done yesterday, and thus it was accomplished. There had been seven unsuccessful trials, and upon each occasion there were a "native," a demo cratic, and one or two whig candidates; but yes terday there was no democratic candidate, the bell-weathers of the flock having all bolted off to Washington, to secure their standing with the in coming administration. The party being thus left like " a church without a bishop, a state without a king," concluded not to put up a candidate to take the democratic votes, and the consequence was, that the demos who turned out, divided their suf frages about equally between the whig, Parker, and the native, Davis, f-'ome three hundred votes were scattered lor Tom, Dick, and Harry, and Pavis go; about 140 majority overall. The straight backed orthodox have thus tri method of celebra umphed, and as an appropriate method of ting the victory, the blue lights held ex tempo I mg IUC V1UIUIJ. tup UlUC 1151110 IICIU tJL IZTJIJI v i>rayer meetings last night at the various conventi cles. The roystering whigs are dreadfully cha grined at the result, and are already mourning over ihe prospeet of having their drinking haunts shut mi, and their crack stables closed on Sundays. They say, they had a thousand times rather have had Charley Greene of the Post, chosen, than " brother Davis," but yet when they had a chance to choose him,the obstinate party goats " would'nt iouch to," as the old ladies say. Truly they have brought their punishment upon themselves, and I lor one, don't care a snap if they go dry for a week of Sundays, or have to travel out to the Norlolk House on foot. There is to be a grand native levee at Faneuil Hall on Monday evening, the 24 h, in honor of the birth day of Washington, and tor lack of any gen uine "natives" of the Sacs or Foxes,<he Atsinboins, >r ihe Flat Heads, for guestB, the committee of ar rangements have invited Governor Briggs of this State, and Mayor Harper of your city, to be pre sent, and astonish the natives. Governor Briggs may deem it politic to attend,in order to woo back ihe refractory natives into the whig ranks, bit I donbt very much whether your worthy Mayor will be present, tor I know him to be opposed to all balls and other such carnal vanities. The re cent triumphant result of the election in this city will doubtlees make the fite go off with great iclat, md the supper will, it is said, be a splendid affair, it being under ihe direction of one Ford, a distil .-uishea " native" caterer of Green Turtle Soup, lie, by the way, will probably be elected soup muster in ordinary to tne new board ol native al dermen. Tne locos are getting up an Inauguration Ball at Faneuil Hall, tor the evening of the 4th of March, and mean to have a good time. The tick ets are dog cheap, being fixed at the truly demo cratic price of three dollars. I suppose there will be a great jam of the " bone and muscle" of the community, and a large sprinkling of pretty girls. There is a funny story current here about he said ball, which as it shows how the wires .re pulled, I think 1 will tell you. There was s >meihing of a competition between one John ?bright and the aforesaid Ford, for the job of iecorating the hall, providing the muBic, supper, See., and they were each called upon to bring in Toposals, by the committee of arrangements. Ford brought in two dollars and fifty per ticket, and Wright three dollars, and both promised to do all hat could be required. Notwithstanding Wright's ?vas the highest bid, he got the contract, and they lo say that the reason he got it was, because he hreatened to " blow the democratic party of Bos on to h?11," if the job was not given to nim. So 1 seems that the democracie are to pay only fifty ? ents ahead, merely for the privilege of not being .lowed to h?II by the man of knives and forks! !heap, aim ill The streets of this city are in a most terrible late ol chaos about these days, and carriage ri ling is worth a fifty per cent, premium at the Life 1 iffices. Even the dead came in for a share of the rouble, notwithstanding the commonly received ?pinion that the troubles of earth end with life, for t was only the other day that a hearse was upset in uie of the most public streets, while proceeding to he burial place. It is said tnat several very res ectable corpsesare awaiting a better sraie of tra iling before they are launched on their final pas uge. To advert to a kindred subject, the Whig office inlders in the Custom House oi this city, are im atiently awaiting the day of their death and burial ipon the advent of the new administration. There re some old codgers among them who have had imost a lite lease of their offices, and others who i;tve been in since the day of Harrison, whose only ecommendation was their pauperism and unfitness or anything else. Public opinion seems to be pret v unanimous that all such w ill have to "walk the ?tank," as there are a great many lusty Polk and JalUs men, who are fired with a generous ambi on to devote their time to the service of Uncle ?> in. The quids here are chuck full of specula ions as to ihe new Cabinet, and eagerly suck in very morsel of intelligence that they glean Irom tie southern papers. Now it is Morton, now Ban roft, now Herishaw, and anon Rantoul. who is to ?go tn"from Massachusetts, pretty much as the pre sences of the aforesaid quids may leud them. From i! ious reasons which it would be cumbersome to in het upon you, I incline to the opinion that nobody rotn Massachusetts will crook his legs under Mr. 'oik's executive mahogany, and more especially as ic incumbent of iheTreasury chair. Your old friend, comptroller Flagg, of New York, is destined for nut place, I leaiu from private advices, and from ie same source 1 hear that a New Hampshire man ill take the Navy Department. In confirmation I this latter statement, 1 would inform you that Gov. Hubbatd, ot New Hampshire, has gone on 0 Washington, with his family within a few daya, nd the Governor is not a man who makes a jour ey without some certain object to call lor it. I hi not think him one who would journey to Wash rtgton to seek an office, and his patriotism is not 1 that jubilant character which would prompt him ? visit the capital to attend the inauguration. But, 'low* verrom, us the patriarch Ritchie once said We are to have a mammoth hotel here in Bos >u within a short time?something that will eclipse ie Aster, United States, Tremont or any other irst chop house in the Atlantic cities, and run 0-ck and neck with the famous St. Charles at New 'rleans. The Company was incorporated by the ?gislature some two or three years ago, under the une ol the Columbian Hotel, but they could not et hold ol the site they then fixed upon, and so let ie project slumber. Tlie election of Polk, or onie other equally ruinous measure, has revived ue plan this year, and now the projectors are ail gog to commence. A very extensive tract has eeu secured upon Tremont street, nearly opposite ? i the Common, and extending down Broomfield ireet to the Marlboro' Chapel on Washington reel, but there is some talk ol taking in that pro erty also, together with the Marlboro' Hotel also, ?i which case the new hotel will cover some three >r four acres ol ground and front on three of the tost frequented thoroughfares of the city. Aston lung as this plan may appear, it is yet thought by >od judges that the undertaking will be a profita ble one, as, notwithstanding the many good houses e now have in the city, there is a great and a coii intly increasing demand lor more accon modu lus for the travelling public. The many railroads tat centre in Boston Lave given this great impulse o hotel businets as well as to all other kinds of bu ne>s, and, not to let the spirit flag, the present gialature are grinding out new railroads every ty, to tap some new section ot the country and nir its wealth into the city. II the capitalists kc up all these charters, (and it is probable they vtll, lor " our first men" are railroad mad,) and ie legislature goes on at the same rate a little nile longer, the whole territory of the little Bay 'ate will be covered over with iron tracks, sleep 's, dec , and a foot of the original sail will be a iriosity to be removed and placed in Kimball's ?luseum| But tin- tallest pile is the one most apt to topple ver, and such may yet be the fate ot the railroad lama in Massachusetts. The end thereof may be tsudden as the closing ol tins epistle, and seme hat more disastrous, if the leaders do rot hold up elong.
