After the triiteisr aud disappointment occasioned by the froaki, dtnil, which precluded alt giiety for some weeks past, not only at the TuillerieB, hut ministerial o:> nal and other house3 of reception, the season wai tioaM' brilliantly opened lust Wednesday, by our fair person oountry woman, Mrs R idijeway, of Philadelphia, drew, now occupying a fine hotel in the Faubourg St. m'at*! Germain, not inferior instyle and elegance to the * "> one so long inhabited by Col. Thorne, whose mu- JJJtie nificenca aud splendor, so well known to all, need ?n* r" no comment of mine to recall him to the memory thaoot of many, though he may be forgotten bv some at a thorn " the heartless parasites of present cheer." Tha n??hoi scene was one of brilliancy, which no American haa aspired to since the days of the gay Colonal. Were I writing to one less au fait than yourself with the distribution and luxe of tha ' hoteU in that quarter, I should be led more into ry detail than the present will requira. xaitl Mr. K. , whose waami is onsy equauaa oy p?aiii< his gi-neroftTty, has spared no expense to adorn tb?Mi the interior of his mansion, and render it & fit ooneai abode for the fair occupant who presided over wl* the evening, not only na the goddess of beauty, but of grace and dignity; and in beholding her, ' &u?ui one could feel the full force of the poet's detsorip- fai im tion, that 'iuowi " Haavan was ia her ayea, graca in bar mian?

Many distinguished persona were to be seen among the numerous guests?Vlr.

It would be in vain, dear Bennett, to give of Bar: you the list of the many distingui personages *}* W( amon^ the French and English elite to be aeen fu*ni1 in this reunion, and much less to attempt to describe tham.

Mrs. Bingham, 111 >\ oiseau de Paradis dress, to join tastefully adorned wiih tulle and ribfcon, appear- xtaia i ed *s beautiful as the bird whose plumage she ? alkh h id adopted. Mrs M y, s* long a resident in ?a?o b< Paris, seems te have learned the secret of immor- d?*ir? tal youth; for she looked as well ns ever I siw her, and is wh it the French call une femme bien r,in,i>B conserrGe. The t>ame may be appl'ed to the J'??? D'ichessedeB . There was sprightly little h?ve Mrs. P , who makes herself agreeable by re- Ri,3ut taming her native graces,without having udopted, Th? like many others, foreign uirs. Aflected Mrs. t <J, ? C , with her has bleu, stay ed but a short time, irUe. I will pass over her simple toilette, #ow* silence atnii Mrs. Haiglit, of New York, so well known to us as the talented traveller whose pen has so happi- ,'.l# ? iy portruyed the scenes of oriental life through ^ the which she passed, was richly dressed in a robe t * th? of entire lace, and it would be difficult for us to n m?o realize) iu her the march of time but for her fair v,ou?l and accomplished daughter, by her side, whose Os Hi costume wxs of true Parisian taste, l'reity Mes F r, in eouleur derate, was seen for a time, <h*?c on the tapis, as also Miss W h, another ,,.nau gentle spirit. Mrs. , who had evidentIy tried, but in rain, "to fill up the |0if th seams with powder, pastes, and creams," >itn?r wore a rich white satin, and was silting by Mrs. , who, as usual, looked "pleased and J?* vulgar"?r.aher mom tmbonpoint than 1 remem- ( ber her some twenty years past, when 1 last saw her on the "light fantastic toe," watching her tingle daughter in ill? mazy dance. Pretty Mrs \?btcb S w, her face beaming with intelligence, t!ia be reminded one how nearly she allied to the "?ry tr grent spirit of the west. Mrs. W h, ever ????ob pleasing ?ud agreeable, stayed but a short time. Mrs. B , who is quite a belle here, wore a costume a la Pompadour, the richness and ele- ,jB| S'ance of w > ich only served to show off her fiue ua<i?r lgure 10 udvautage. Mrs C r, one of my H?t: most valued friends, was, au usual, remarked to ttia lor her lady-like and quiet manners. Mrs Jn ft, ly, and her daughter, and others too nu- ! J **j* meroui to describe. For the duchesses, marquisen, counts sses, etc., ss well ns high-born Englmh, 1 must refer >ou to the fair hostess tor ,.i tw? further details; also, for the titled host ol men, ijhtl to her, or some of the dowager dames of the hn'? p faub. urg. The pale and eleaant Mr. W g, ol Philadelphia, was seen circulating through the j 'PP0 suion*. accompanied by Mr. (J o; and I fxolor once laurel n person ask him, " Wlio is your fat ln th? fiienii 1" Mr M :), our Secretary of Lege- tVrsoi tion, so long in Paris, must surely be the idol of i>irati< the women and the envy of the men ; he seemed wtrd i equally acquainted with the former, of all na- <h??ui tions, possnsving the happy talent of holding 1 00 converse with e..oii one in her own language. I'iot-t M.iny were the ci (levants, who, like us, dear ^,mil*.] Bennett, cannot be young, and will not be old. itir?r I dul not remark, as with us, so many of those it w young, beardless boys, who till up our talons at K-aoy home. tor, at I fit'r!
