The event which was looked forwird to with so much solicitude by the fash i"uabl? world, hero and at thu Eoat, has come and gone. The anticipated pleasure Of the evening has been realized by the young folks, and ti e bills have been met by their papas Beauty hashed its triumph, wit its appreciation; deformity has be ti conrted; all have had a night's enjoyment, and at e only anxious about the impression which they may 1 ?ve created in the bail room. The timid are entertali ing fears that they appeared ridiculous, and will be ma: ..ed for scandal: the vain are filled with the Idea (hat, they especially attracted great notice?the queer,s naiads, gipsies, and dames of court, fairies, aylpL. nuns and nymphs of Wednesday night, are connii g over the pleasant things said softiy in their ears by the gallant monarehs, monks, knights, squires priests Turks, brigands, smugglers, pirates or princes who n ude themselves so agreeable during the evening All ate, to be Eure, glad that the affair is over; but - there . re many who are already making their calcula tlons: r tlie balls of next s inimer. The fanoy dress balls ot Saratoga and Newport, have now becoaio the grand climacteric events of the season at these planes, and arc henceforth things to look for, and prepare for, as mn i )i as the journey to the watering places. Twice every summer is the fashionable world wrought up to a pitch of the greatest exoitement, by the prepa ration tor, and the participation In, the festivities at Saratoga and Newport. At first, it was considered a matter of doubtful propriety to take part in them; but ^ it aoon became popular, and finally necessary, to attend one 01 (be other, or both Kncouraged by success, the costun its enlarged their wardrobes, aud improved the style 11 their dresses, and, one by one, introduced the Tarioiic improvemeutH in their line, until now their assortment will compare favorably with those of their fellow craftsmen in Kurope Competition is the life of trade, as well in getting up fancy balls as in any other business; and Saratoga and Newport enter into the pirtt < t rivalry in this matter The direction at Saratoga have the first of the sea-on, and do all they can to mal e their bail the grandafTair Nopainsare spared to produce an imposing spectacle, and present a model hard to c<iual or excel The management at Newport, always knowing what bah been Uoue at Saratoga, with ?bigb:y laudable spirit of emulation, lay their plans aoae to quite come up to, and. if possible, exceed the magnificence of their rivals The bull which was given at the Ocean House, Newport, i ii Wednesday evening was, without doubt, the most ijlendid aflair of the kind that has yet taken place ' '1 here were% larger number ot rich costumes than 1 as before been pieseut at any of the fancy balls. There were not so many extravagantly expensive d.o.-ee* in the room an there were last year; but their i I,m-lice was more than compensated for by the large numbers of very correct costumes which were present. Messrs N. H. Gould, of Newport, and Taylor & Dejot^e, the well known costuiners, of New York, each op* ucd a large assortment of costumes, at an early Ony; and hence lime wan afforded for deliberate preparation, and nearly a thousand dresses were offered to those who desired to make selections. The bet skill (t the first ladies' bairdresi-era in the oountry was -also made available on this occasion. Messrs Barker, Sibblt e and Paul, of New Vurk, and Gilbert, of Boston, "were on Land, and were fully occupied The largo dining hall of the Do,-an Hotlse was used for a b ill rtom. and wa-> tastefully ornamented by Mr. Dejonge In addition to the fifteen chandeliers with which the room was principally lighted, there was a ixlt cf wax candles entirely encircling the room The effect ' f this airangenient needs to be seen to be appreciated. Nothing Scan possibly produce a better effect; Die thousand sparkling lights are of themselves brillin. t. and as they twiukle and sparkle like so many stars, tbeir light aids in bringing out in perfection the of the ornaments and trimmings on the dresst Fir icme days previous to that on which the ball took place, Newport was iiteialiy crowded, and at the fashionable hotels any kind of lodging rooms were at a premium. AU'was bustle ami busy preparation for the {reattvent. Ladies, who were preparing their own, were of oourse duly eDgaged, and those who f ught the aid of the customers were hurrying to and fro between the display rooms wad their hotels. Anxiety was depicted on every count< nance. At the Ocean House things were iu perfect confusion?not the affairs of the house itself, which are always orderly and straightforward. Mr. V raver showed a laudable degree of enterprise in procuring material with which to deoorate the walls elaborately, uud, indeed, the deoorators under the direction of Mr. Dejonge, had put up a larpc amount of trimmings, when one of the manopir* came to hint and insisted that no pink trimm.rgs should be put up. Well, what could Mr. Dejoa/cdo? 'He must obey orders and so the pink <drape>> was removed lrotn the walls, leaving nothing but bio'tv green. &hd some other sombre tints, which, of coutjs made the room to present quite a mournful aspect. This would not do: and >o, finally down came also the blue >nf green drapery, leaving the walls again bare, alter two days labor had been expenv'td upon them by the decorators. It was said that st mc of this uianairi-r's female friends contem pitted ? aring-a pi ok dress. ana hence the objection to the ) ink muslin on the walls. After the exercise of wondt: tul patience, Mr Dij"nge completed his work, tad pronounced it in readiness tor delivery to whom it might i oncern.
