The Oreat Isbstter br the Great PftataMa usivnisi | CLOSING SCENES, I lin 1M^ he* d The great Japanese crash took place Last night. The M fraud reception ball at Nibk>*a was an event to be men I ttoned in the history of the mission of the Asiatics to this I country. A most illustrious company, composed mainly ef the representatives of our beet society, were gathered in the spacious balls, gardens and saloons attached to the theatre. Not the Chltph'e "Garden of Delights," Aladdin's "Paradise of Gems," or any of the rich conceptions af Oriental fancy can convey an idea of the scene which was presented at this splendid reception. Even an Oriental's hasheesh dream?In which he seemed to be floating in a diamond boat, over wavea of golden sand, through arches of bright-hoed rainbows, while by him swept gales sweeter than the choicest perfumes, and laden with dulcet melodies?lacks the rich coloring which words Ml to oppress, and which alone can adequately describe the ftairy like scene of last night. The vast rooms and gardens were transformed into gardens of flowers; the hir use thick with sweet fragrance and sweeter music; thousands of lights shed their prismatic-hoed illumination ver the imtoense throng of dancers and promennden; paintings and sculptures aided to dazzle and bewilder the imagination; while amid this oonigregatlon of all that is lovely and beautiful in nature and art moved the fairest and ike wet distinguished members of our beat society, lending a new charm to a roup dad alruadyYufflclently overwhelming ,acd above all, like tame wild vision of a poet's fancy, eeemlng as sttu|i as they were appropriate to a soeoe of such Orients! magillcenie and beauty, sat our Japanese Visiters, dressed In their richest robes, and culminating tbe splendid display. No accident occurred to mar the enjoyment of the guests at this Japanese ftstival, and the reception bell or lest evening may be placed among the triumphs of Now York hospitality sad munificence. I The entire fUe waa planned and arranged by Nr. Warren Leland, under tbe supervieioa of tbe Committee of Arrangements, oonaleting of Aldermen Boole, Starr, Bag ley, Owens, Brady. Tuomey sad- Cornell, and Councilman s Fbaw, Lent, Hall, Asrran, Towaaend, Van Tins and Van Wart. The designs were by Mr. Wm. Beers, who also superintended their arrangement Delamano bad charge of tbe painting sad eeenic deooratlons. The emitim waa under the superr Islen of the proprietors of tbe Metropolitan, and In charge of tbe steward of the betel. The flags and ban ers were furnished by the Navy Yard and by various city riginionta and companies. Mr. Slvoai, of the Mctropo "^litan, arranged and supervised tbe illumination. In every department this reception was s splendid success. Messrs. Nixon and Christy suspended the perfbrmaaom in their aalooos for the evening, end, with a generosity rarely equalled, gave up their performance rooms to the require menu of the OotnmiUee of ArraugemenU. Without this sacrifloe the reception would have lacked IU cnlusml , chanu ter, and to these geuUemen the I hanks of the pub- I He ere due.

When *r*u from the ?t*|ie or the portico 01 other elevated position, the perfiet sea of heads "truck the be holder with aetnrtahinvnt; that is. providing he had never seen Kurn u igbt heiore. Not only waa the sidewalk literally Wmtuod a it were into one mass, hut a lino several deep ww loriiied iii.'iiy the cestui of tlie roadway, leaviug a lane between them and lite curb ut the " two shilling sido of Bruailwuy." The police, who were stationed all ronad the building, now begt.n to pr??s the |u?nple backward Into soma sort of a regular line to that ibo carriage* might have free room to arrive at the principal door of the hotel, discharge their passengers and drive off again, lb tbia duty many of lb* members of the force showed their remarkable dlepoait ions, which, as we observed some of the effect* thereof, we think it worthy of notice. Some of them shoved the crowd about, and spoke to thorn an 1 they thought they wer* even leas than dogs, or at we should fancy n keeper of n bear den would address those animals, knowing they were not to be influenced by moral force. Thus waved their truncheons aloft as if they would bring than down in n crushing manner upon the skull of the poor unfortunate individual who did not enactly "toe (he lino" to the satisfbetion of the "crest mogul In edlee." But others shyowed a very agreeable Joking dlapo- J itios strictly enforcing the orders given, yet going ( so with a witty remark, a kind snails and a gentle fceel- ( bleness. We found the latter ?ad more eflkct on As poo- , pie, for who could be odfcnded whan Mr. PoUoeman "was , such a very nice man," and away they weal, if they had ( to go, without a word, however unpleasant it might be ( to their feelings. On several occasions we noticed parsons would try and "ran the gauntlet" of the oflkws, j but, somehow or other, few succeeded, as one or other of the 11. P.'s would be upon them like a flash of lightning, and back they went. One amusing iicident occurred of a man who by his id- 1 gennity had slipped by ail the odoers was stopped by the 1 last, who was naer the portico. He sent my gentleman ' back with a rush into the arms of the next officer, who ' in bis turn forcibly pitched him into the grasp of No. S, who said "ilice again, Mend, and hero we are," and kindly, w ithout any violence, led him out of the way 1 villi n rattling "good night." This last had more ( fleet in fact that the rough manners of the others for 1 them he went off calmly enough. 1 The order of the setting down of guests from the ear- 1 riages was, the horses beads pointing along Broadway towards the City Hall. Thus a lina of carriages was formed along the sidewalk adjoining the Hotel, and (br ibe distance of several blocks, even higher up than Qraoe Church, and after having been lightened of the load they were drtvea off in the opposite direction, llany of the "Jehus," who wished to return the way they came, did not like this arrangement, as "they did not see the fun of driving a couple of miles , out of their road." But the rule was stringent and the police carried it out strictly, as they said "it would cause great coufuslon if they allowed any one person to break through the regulations, as others would expect the same privilege." Up to nine o'cloA over. two hundred and fifty carriages bad arrived and discharged, but after this time they came so' ast that It was totally Impossible to keep account of the number. At least over a thousand arrived before eleven, and bad not then even ceased coming. Many of tbclr occupants getting tired of waiting on the line, left their carriages long before tbey reached Houston street, and walked along the sidewalk. This, we deem, must have been very implement for many of the ladies, although the even teg was remarkably fine; as there being no cloak room provided at the hotel, they had to walk along the street? In their ban room dreaaea, and with no other covering for their heads than the simple Sowers or ribbons which were tor the porpoee of heigtenlng their beaaty. Many of the gentlemen were better off in this respect, as the various "soft" covering used in New York for that purpose are so admirably adapted that they can be folded up and put into the pocket. Among the guests we noticed several military officers la full noiform, among whom were more prominently an * belonging to the Fifty fifth or French regiment, wh was accompanied by a rlvandiere, and oo"> of the Highland regiment, in kilt and hose, ho Oae notable gentleman In a -cocked hat" created a littl sensation, being called by the crowd "Captain,' Colonel,'" Ac. Being a stately man, aad walking on I without taking notice of the remarks of the bystanders in any way, be sooo commaded respect. The front of the building eras decorated, aad . over the portico two rows of various colored | lanterns brightened the scene. At each corner o , the balcony an illuminated pagoda was placed, and the flags of Japan aad America were looped up and hung over I the street. A banner, with the glorious "Son of Japes" j graced each side of the main entrance, and various others were lu w ?ku iviuv mw bwuv. ? ???* nnw_ blued forth front myriads of gaa Jets. It ban often boon mid that u American cu scarcely spook of anything except dollars and cents, but on this eventful evening scarcely a sentence was beard In which the Japanese did not form the principal portion, line anily fellow said that he thought "the expense Incurred would be of no benefit to any one for the next century except the partlea having the getting up of tho affiiir.'' I Hut he wa- one in a llnsisaad?perhaps ten tbouaand. The remarks made by the people on the arrival of the lad it a were ?otnetlmes very amusing As one officer at'-pped truni bia carriage with a lady who waa a perfect b use of beouty?we hope we shall not be deemed ungallant J we say as la r as her dross waa coooemed. for we so unfortunate as not to be able to aee her free, although, as a sailor would say. a bad figurehead could scarcely be attached Pi so charmingly a built hull?a robust Hibernian burst nut with, Arrab. and by my soul, and ain't the a darling It's uu a.-tf Hut would like u> have a Jlg'with P< r In tin Ihrwa Judy Callaglian style." On Crosby street the i-xciii iiwiil w.?e nearly, if not quite as great, as on Br<?tdw;ty. In the e.irlj part of the evening, mas) who hnew of that entrance in the aaioou thought It would be uagwardeil, and rue bed around try tag to get maids, but alas for their 1k|sw. the M.

Another man rolled up n piece of paper in the form of a flute and tried to get paas the thbrrus, but the appl leant found that both he and hia aul> were ' too soft and it was "no go." Hrveral per sooa with largo bouqneu were allowed to paaa, stating I bey wen employed ou the deeoratPma. bet we fear a few of i hem wrre not a? engaged From ten o'clock almost aa continual a stream left the building at one end as entered it at the other, roe aa they started the " room waa too am til to hold them This we can readily believe, tor If the Whole III llM' great amvpniwa was wr Wp rw, me think II could hardly b?M the m?M thai poured into ihp buildtag t?jr the front entrance We hare no doubt every made uee of to accommodate the guests, but " need* mtift ?ben the oM gentleman drives."

Dui ii| tbe evening several of the Japanese amused them selvea by looking out of tbe windows being on Broadway; adn when any of them made their appearance, they were hailed with shouts asd cheers Tbe (rent cry, however, was for " Tommy," or as some called him 1 'TightIsh Tienmy." One wag, while loklng about tba Ja panees. observed an intoxicated Individual pasting along, and remarked that he most be the "Tight cooa' If he were not the Tycoon Several of the policemen, we noticed, were Invested with n prominent ba^r of office la the shape of a long staff (some sevim feet), with a gilt top. and the wxrd "police" painted prowinenlly oa It. Htm they used pretty ftnely ae a lever to force the crowd heck with, aad very effi?c tuai it was. hut more so when It was rapped pretty smartly en the toes of the unfortunate offimdera It was rumored that several persons were going In with sporlous tickets, and one man remarked to his neighbor that he i bong hi If be cold "procure an Aldermanlt ?r Councillor'* hadge he might be able to gem without a i Mrket at nil ." tin. said hi- frl-nd.

IKMH TUB BOW., huide the hotel the crush was tremendous. As carriage iter carriage drove up, and a* stage after stage deposit d it* cargo at the corner of Spring street, the restibule stairs and halls ef tbe hotel were rowded. Tbe guests began to arrive at about tght o'clock, and until nearly ten o'clock tbe arlvala were numerous, lbs passage was completely docked up, and on entering the bote! and proceeding to be ballroom tbe guests oouid only "follow tha crowd." lbs military, lbs lad its, tbe gonttemen in orllnary or extraordinary citizen's dress, were nteraaingicd is n coufbsien wbldb dedee d once description and tndivktnality. lbs uowd was tbe maw on the staircase, in the vestibule of irherta number of policemen were stationed, omselemly selling, "Gentlemen, tare your ticket* reedy; ticket* tended to tbe right." At title door were stationed the pnttomea at the Councilman and the proprietors at the Metropolitan, to uaber the gueeta into the ballroom. TBI KNTKANCC FROM TBI BOTH lb the ball room was a wide hall, opening directly opposite the hotel parlors, and decorated with flags and stands af flowers. The Japanese had a special entrance, hut through this ball all the invited guests passed, delivering their tickets to the doorkeeper at this entrance. At this door police wore stationed, in order to prerout unauthorised intrusion and to stop the holder* of bogus tickets, if say wore presented. Tbeec bogus tickets were very freely sold, yesterday, and several apparently respectable gentlemen were disposing of their invitations for ten, fifteen and twenty dollars, and some at higher prices. The brother of ooe of our Aldermen, Mr. Seegriat, eras engaged in this traffic at the Bt. Nicholas, and had several tickets taken from him by Alderman Starr, by whom they were endorsed. On ac count of the rumors in regard to these tickets an extra police force was thought necessary. The floor of this ball waa carpeted with glased figured muslin, and the whale hell appeared a lit vestibule for the magnificent rooms beyond. From this hall tbe guests entered an ante chamber leading to the bakxny, which was finely illuminated, and which overlooked the gar dens, with numerous doors opeoiug into the theatre. To llie riglit the guests entered the saloon usually occupied by Oiriety'e troupe. litis ball was slso crowded, and ingress and egress were almost imjaieaihic, and It waa only by the atreuuoua cflbrts of the Aldermen and the Messrs. he laud that a passage was kept for those who wished to enter the room, and the crush hero, as wall an elsewhere, was most tremcn lions. From this ball the guests entered THB HALOON Which was beautifully filled up. The gallery was festooned with Uagx, ami reserved as au orchestra for Dudworlh's musicians, who, however, occupied sosls on the Uo?r of the room. The walls were decorated with Bower*, ever greeu* and flag?, In beautiful device*, and the window* were hung with rich lace and crimmm ?ilk curtain*. At the further extremity of the room were devices of globe*, in glass Jet*, enclosing twin crimson stars. At the other extremity the stage was removed, tho prosqrnium only remaining, and In the space previously occupied by the stage was arranged n representation, beau lifully painted, of a conservatory of flowers, with trellised arbors, and stands and vaaes of real flowers. The deception here waa perfect, and the v alter seemed really entering a natural bower, opening front Ike room. In the centre of this conservatory was arranged a beautiful collection of exotics, and around the sides, ss also around the entire room, were placed crimson velvet sofas and divans. The conservatory was lighted by candelabra*, mounted upon glided stands, and the entire room was illuminated by pendant chandelier*. The floor of this saloon wan reserved for dancers, and lis delicious coolness mads It a mors fltvorlte resort than the larger theatre. All around the room wars scattered vases and stands of natural flowers, and these, with the rich hangings, the brilliant lights, the Immense throng of richly drisuid dancers and prumenmders, made up a tout muembU which seemed more like a midsummer night's dream than like an actual reality. Ftem this hall door* opened Into the theatre on the left, and on the right a door was cut through to the dining rooms of the hotel, used on this occasion as THE raOKXXADC.

Tbo re- a praeeetattoo was appropriate, however, only by 11 contrast, and the gayety and glitter of n the throng which swept pest the hermit's cell ? were all the more evident from the comparison.

In the centre was raised a mound of green j t! turf, crowned with pine trees and other evergreens, and o cunonnded by jets of water. Around the garden were ar b ringed stands and vaaas of flowers and evergreens, and b the walls ware hung with festoons of evergreens and P colored lanterns. The windows of the hotel open s ing upon this garden were also bung with flags s and brilliantly illuminated, and upon a vary available c ledge or window sill were placed vari colored lights, lend- u ing a beautiful but faalastic brilliancy to the scene. r Upon the portico ovur tbs doors leading to the promenade I was arranged a large red nail, the Japanese emblem, aup- I ported by Japanese flags and wreathed with flowers i Ibis garden ia paved and is surrounded with stoue wails. 1 and its decoration was one of the greatest suoce-ses of I the evening.

At ten o'clock, tbo hour at which it was announce! that supper would be served, this room was densely crowded, and the scene defies description. The tables wore surrounded by a quadruple rank of people and every eatable was eagerly seised upon, so that In an hour there was nothing like comfort or convenience in the saloon. Each guest seised that which was handy, and the uumber of dresses spoiled waa beyond enumeration. The call for the waiters, the Incessant popping champagne corks, and the rustling and bustling of the crowd mads up a confusion worse confounded.

This saloon waa constantly Ailed, and but a small space was reserved for dancing. Below this saloon waa a room of ainnlar style, used as a supper room. AI'PKARANCK ur THK BALI. ROOM. Ttie glory of the etenlng culminated in tlie grand danc ing hall, where the votaries and dtaclptr* of Terpsiehorc assembled In numbers numberless. The costumes of tlie guests were of tbc most brilllatt and dar.zling kind, rival j ling the husa of the rainbow and the humming bird, and eaiasdlag m aateat aaything of ths kind whk:b has yet ?* area is owr for famed city of areas!

The brilliancy of the mw wax *ur|?*slogly (rand Orientals though I bey are accustomed to splendors that outstrip the pace of sober reality and Qnd a realisation only in romance, the Japanese iwlacen were thrown off their mental equilibrium, and for some time belle red that they, were wandering among | the Cyskan Oelde of lbs Fast, and that the raw which bloomed and the bulbuls that sung were the denizens of their own warm and runny clime Beauty, splendor and magnificence shone down upon them with beams as radiant as those of the Ood of Pay himself. Huch a brilliant and glowing scene has seldom been seen in thu western hemisphere; thank* lo the eflhrts of ths respected pro prietors of the Metropolitan and the decoratlre artists, and but little than he. Indeed, to the dull and henry Alder men who Mt Inside. The skill of the carpenter and the art of the painter were brought Into full requisition, sod well did they all co-operate to adorn nod tieautlfy the scene. The theatre, fbr the time bring, was transformed into a dancing hall, which, for elegance and beauty, might bars defied competition with the moat tasteful saloons of the ladles of Chatile As If by the stroke of a magic wand, the ordinary theatre waa converted Into a gorgeously Illuminated bower, shaded by Dags and drowned In flowers, Ry the united | and gigantic labor*%>f hundreds of mechanics aod art issue, the metamorphosis waa as complete as j any of those made by the fluent pen of Orid. | No fairy with unearthly power could luire done but I ban the ordinary mortals who controlled the design Puck, with the girdle round the earth, was bat ssan la fsnt to It.

Tliesc U or rider* presented ? brilliant appearance, and were pi owded to cxcers all the eveuiug. The whole theatre at. nd garden* surround ins were, iu short, one *hiuuig scene, n. mining a niagnillcoul isivUtoii, with a canopy aud n? ides of red and white dumusk, with rich hi toon* and wreaths ol' flowers aud bangiug* o or(jeoue aud variegated silks. From the lulcrior of the I' reat cupola depended the three brazen lamps, ornament 'h d in tlie most tlurid style of workmanship, uud supplied <h rith three rowa of ground gins* shades, duninishin*; in hi Ize upwards. These, when illuminated, added the utmost ? rllllaocy to the building. From the columns, w< nd around the walla, there were additional at ghts, which flamed out their dazzling colors with to luch effect.. Along the corridors, between the on sate of the various tiers, and wherever there was room of ir an ornament, aumethiug beautiful waa suspended. ne here were palntlnga, and statues, aud flowers?there to rare flags, banners and wreaths; and wherever the eye an sold turn was to be met some sign of taste or some em v" I em of magnlflcence. The upper tier of bones ? I the theatre was most exquisitely deco ted. Variegated lumps shone swoctly in the |r tldet of evergreen houghs, shedding around a litre and a brilliancy seldom equalled. Most of the w oral wreaths enclosed or supported the coats of arms of gt he various States of the Union, overwrapped in feetoous di r red, white end blue ribbons. The main columns of the of wilding were wreathed with Huge and banners, and gar- gi utded with circlets of rases, shedding sweet and delicious a erfumrs. On each of these banners, which retire- hi rntcd almost every nationality beneath the tl un, were devicrs and insci iptlons appropriate to the oo tb aslon. Hie combined clfcct of all these elements of beauty al nd grandeur could scorooly be depleted by the artist's n< icncil, much less by the matter-of-fact aud hackueyod ft ten of a newspaper reporter. Tossy that the scene was u irtllkant, is to say little; to say that it was oi naguiflceut, is still, to say little; and nothing si >ul the actual view of ils varied aud yet united tb w-auty could give even a faint idea of the reality. Silken In nd satin bannera hung from every point, bearing mscrip ca ions congratulatory to the distinguished guests for whom m he display whs made. The devices on these tiags aud nt ianners were most exquisite and appropriate. The whole tu l>ace encircling the dancing hall was clothed with re ircath.-i of fresh dowers, or which the leafy ft south of June is so proline. These were of ev very color, and a emitted fragrance which, when com w, aiugled. rivalled the odors of an Arabiau court. ft n the mldnt of these were fanciful designs in |winllngs, cl ilastcr, and gilr. Around the lower purl, or near the b> >a?e of the columns, were tastefully arranged the dogs tli >t our -volunteer corps, gathered into charming n old.--, aud liMiped up with varicolored ribbous. tb u the centre of each of these sparkled some tr (littering substance which, in the blaze of a thou- 0| wnd lamps, looked like so many diamonds Theiuterstioe h Oct ween each column were decorated with arches of ever- ;c (reens and the richest floral tributes which the gardens fa if the country and of the metropolis could afford. The a lancing floor itself was of immense proportions, afford- g( lug convenience for a great number of sets to bo dancod |) it one and the same time. Its mean measurement tl nss seventy feet wide by one hundred and | w Mtv long, and the appearance of the whole floor n; icemed almost lUimllabU- beneath the magnifying glare of (c lamp and chandelier. The theatre bad,as we said before, altogether disappeared in the Terpsichoreon saloon. There was nothing to be seen in any part of the rooin hut brilliant uniforms, costly dresses and scintillating jewels, rbc sublime strains of music reverberated through gallery ind corridor with powerful force, lending Interest and animation to the scene. T c The musicians were accomodated on a data erected on u imc aide of the ball room, where their splendid uniforms g were displayed to great advantage. Here they discoursed d the most stirring, and at the same time the most deli- ri ciou* music that the well known Dedworth could supply. ?j There were nearly two hundred musicians engaged ? tor the occasion, and the concord of sweet sounds p emitted from viol, clarionet, flute, cornet and brass, f( was powerful enough to charm the ear and delight the y heart even of the dullest Japanese that ever detested music. The floor was chalked and dlridod In Byzantine style?one of the old and favorite Greek forms?for Uio ease and comfort of the guests, an arrangement that waa greatly appreciated during the evening. This precaution tended to increase the con venlanoe of the guests, and to rondtr the fornr"? of sals easier and mora regular. The upper private boxee were oonoaaled by the large standards of the oily com pan lea, and the lower boxes were arranged into aiehea of flowers containing statues of dancing nymphs, supporting bouquets and garlands of flowers. The proaoe nium was draped with large American and Japanese flags, surmounted by twin figures of Fama, aoeadlog their trumpets, and su mining a large gilded American eagle, pendant from the claws of which waa a medallion wreath, with a device of clasped hands iu the centre. The stage was cleared hank to the walls, uud the entire apace waa aet w ith a beautiful garden scene, lit np with bracket side lights an<l candelahraa At the rear of the stage waa a gorgeous Japanese pavilion, frotn designs fur nl-licd by one of the artists attached to the Kiub^isy, represented as if aland lug iu the midst of a garden. A prt vate entrance, reserved en lusivcly for the A<abuaa:i lors, ccir-niuuicated w Ith this pavilion from the hotel, so that the l*rincea could retire to their rooms, or b i present among the distinguished throng aa tin y desired. This sparlm< nt was illuminated by candelabra* upper led by gi.l s slues. The arrangements for (he decoration of the bail room were, on the wliole, of tha most successful description Never In any Eastern land were more elegancies and beau ties concentrated into one even lug's entertainment thao waa done In this ftr-oll Western country last night. The decorations of the ball mom were un rlvalU-d in tlie hftnry of the city. A nutivc of Con stantinople, suddenly transferred Into the Labyrinthine intricacies of Ntbki'a Uarden, in the full blase of an Illumination, bursting forth frnm fountains of gas and oil, would have believed himself atill tarrying in some gorgeous palace on the bank?f the Bosphorus. It is hard ku<lecd fur the Imagination to ounostre, aa It was for the eye to taka m, the whole of the meguHoanne at a glaiw. The Midsummer Night's Dream" of the Immortal Atakspere must have been conceived under the delirium of a dream wboae beaollae only found living reality lu the *|>teodor of last nig lit. .Skill, patience, activity and enterprise united, produced a more perfrct truth than .the wildest thoughts of romancer* or of porta ever could bring Into life. The flag* and hanner?, the wreathe and flower*, the merry laugh of girlhood, and the hilarity which everywhere prevailed, spoke mora of Rasters cliinaa llutn of the euid frigidity of Northern men. Nothing waa wanting but the pefence of the Oriental Ambassador*. in their p<< uliar costume, with Ibelr abaren crown* and silken varment*, to carry one'* memory bark to the garden* of the bat, no the trees of which ruble- and emerald* sparkled, and where the rt.n bimaelf waa outshone In glory and noontide brightness. The fhhlcd beauty of Aladdln'a palace waa aa nothing to the acenc pre-ented in Klblo's Garden, In the very centra of New York, luat night. It waa anch a arena aa would hare sored the bead of ftrhehrreaade from the executioner's bkick, If but properly ana laiiniuiiy |<>rinyra?m unu( ivi ? in | expected In a hurray prepared newapaprr report.

If the scene ?i| rand when the empty ball room lay open to the sight, da rated with all the taste we have attempted o describet )w greatly enhanced was the coup d'aeil wha is brilliant company began to arrive. As throng after irong of lovely women swept into the saloons, with 1 the majesty of health, beauty, wealth and happt* 'ss, It seemed as if tbe houria and perls of tha xst had met together to bold a midnight revel and > celebrate their highest holiday. The great mart# r commerce In the city must indued have been ranicked to the fullest extent to supply tbe necessities at is army of fair ones who turned out Ju such round uumTl last night. .Satins, lares, gauzes, brocades, tulle#, mbrUs, shawls, and tunies of Eastern manufacture; antles and tunics from Paris, I .union, and every contU ntai city, mingled in the vest army with the mauufuored excellencies of oui own land. The ladies uhon# splendent under tbe baud of the milliner* tch one strived, in anticipation of tbd rent, to excel the other, and the result as a perfect chaos of elegance, beauty and refinement, i much brilliancy is rarely to bo seen even in th ty of wonders and protean changes. The ball roost ukod out upon the brightly illuminated garden, wh-r# lousands of colored lights were burning, some of theflt nitlug sweet odors, and crystal fountains sjiarkJing ill icir radiant beams from the branches of th# eve, full of green foli.tge, depended myriad# r laui|?, each varied in color and twinkling With istre and a cheering hl.cse, like so many golden stars set i an azure sky. The murmuring sound of the waters, illlng gently from marble statues, and gliding back from circular lake into their original fount, was music m ;t If; and as the toiiiul of the brazen trumpotsand boms of e musicians was borne upon the night wind and through te trees, It produced a wird like effect on Ihoso who ere calmly reviewing the scene, while the merry cossptke I, thoughtless of the moment, were whirled about in tb# itricacies of the dizzy dance.
