ACTI7ITY OF OUR MODI3TE3. Tremendous Seuaation Anion; the Crinolines. She Great Bale and Display of Costly Jewelry. THE MILITARY PAGEANT, k??t aa?. rmijkDBU'HiA, Oct 9,1800. This rooming the roysl party, accompanied by Msjor Swonn, drove aronad Baltimore, viewing the oily la detail Large crowds were assembled at the hotel and along the streets through which the party passed, and the Prince waa frequently cheered It woe rumored that the rriDce's hat bad been knocked oil by on apple larown from the crowd last night; but this story ranks with that of (he Richmond disturbances, and Is authoritative ly denied. The ride through the city occupied the ttmc till noon, when the party drove to 'he depot to take a special train to Philadelphia. On parting with the Mayor tbv Prlnoe thanked blm for his kludness, sud expressed his gratidja tlon with his orderly and enthusiastic reception, and With the beautiful City of Monuments. Although a great cro vd aescmblcd, few saw the reel Frince, but, as at the Opera Houac the night before, mil took Lord Hlnchenbmcke for blm, much to my lord's modest confusion and subsequent pride. A greater treat than be had enjoyed before awaited the Prince during his Journey to Philadelphia. All along the route the scenery Is beautiful, the road running by little ex lutstle bits of wjodlond, with embowered lanes, su ib as Gainsborough painted and across "ruLs" or arms of the sea, abut In with hills, so that the royal parly panted most of the time by the car windows, callingHo each other, "Isn't that English*"?f?How like a loch In Scotland;" and several declared that now, for the first time, they were roally iiomeelck at the sight of landscapes so much like these of home. The party did not leave the cars at the Surquebauna river, but were ferried across ou a Hooting railway boat, which wasgayly decked with lla^s. The Prloce seemed surprised at this fe.-ry, which carried cars and ail, and Inquired if there was another in the country, and if it were nafe. Here, as at svery station along ths route, crowds as stmbled to see hitu but had little opportunity. At Wil m lug too, where it bad bees arranged to stop for a few momenta, ths crowd was so great that the royal por'.y did not deem it prudent and so on went the train, fairly Clearing Iw way through the dense throng, the Prince bowing hln response! to the orowds and cheers from Uie rear piallorm. The tretu reuehel Pb'ladelpbla on'y two mioutee be bhid time. The regulations of the rrod and oth.r par ticulars the Bfuu> published yesterday Ail Philadelphia was nritel about the election to day, and the streets except around ths pjUi, were alsotl deserts 1. The ladies, however, were out In large numbers, aad swarmed to tba Coolinentiai Hutel to Inspect the Prlnct s splendid apartments, to sit where be was to stt, ard bcgli the excitement a la Japanere They were escorted in and out of the rooms In parti. s of three and four, and seemed to feel easier after the visit This and a number of let ters directed to the Prlnoe la fem'nloe cbhogrsphy were the only Indications at the hotel that the Prlnoe would arrive If ths ladies only katw the fate of these letters how they were read by all the suite, laughed at and ds atroyed ta ben rath not: -e?perua,* stationery dealers and poet 0Sloes wou'd But be 10 'argely pair>o x*d A great ruab in made f< r opera tickets, for there Phila delphia excitement centres and from twenty dm to t irtf dollars ba\e been offered 'or tickets, hut none are ror sale, lb# Prlnc an l psrty have t *o balcony boxes on either side of the stage, aid a>t la the middle dress c.rcla during ibe "IrortaU " It hi sot probable that the P. lacs will be preeeat duviag the first opera at all, as It in hit custom to arrive very late The bouse is decorated with flowers, Dags,new cbondeherrs and devlees In gas J*!*.

THE RECEPTION IN NEW TORE. TI1E BALL IN THE METROPOLIS. StKPATION AMONG Till CBINOLIKW?ACTIVITY OP TllE MODIbTKS?1MMKN8E BALE OF JEWHLRTi Tb,. yrauJ ball io be given on the Uth to the Prince or Wales hnn done more towards emptying the shelves of city dealer! in dry good! anl Jewelry than the aggregate ball! 01 five seasons could have done. Remote pre^.*ration! have been going on for week! peat; ordera have been given In anticipation or the event, and Paria baa been literally ransacked for novettiee that would enable the fortunate possessors to outvie all other! on thla great oc caalon. Kvin while we write fabric! are arriving more expensive and recArriAe than any that haa yet appeared In the market, to the great delight of the anxioua fashion ablta who have been waiting for their arrival in mingled hope and trepidation. For the next two daya the dreaa makera will have a busy time of It, for these goods have all to be mado up for the ball, and oo such an occasion a disappointment would be equivalent to a death warrant. The storekeepers, calculating on the ball, have given larger ordera for expensive dreaa goods than usual, and we have no doubt the result will be as assemblage of gorgeous dreases yioh at haa never been witnessed In Now York before. No lady srtll permit herself to be outshone on such aa ooeaslon If she can prevent It, and when Impelled by such a powerful motive as the desire for pre eminence what will not New York ladies achieve? They have not sow to contest tne P^m f.t superiority with provincial rlva'a, in triumph leaver whom they could gain no glory, whllo Keen dob at oould throw A aort of halo round their vanquished foe. The struggle cow la among themselves It la s airt of Internecine oonflict, a social slrl'e, In which all the con teatanta are equally aktlful and equally experienced, and la which It will be a difficult thlug for one peraou to attain dtatincllco, and almost impossible to achieve s triumph. Aa every lady understands thoroughly the exigencies of the cane, and shrinks from being over shadowed, strenuous exertions hnvs been made to discover what ?hs has got to oonUad with, what bidden resource! other ladies may possess, what unknown forces they may be able to bring Into the (told, what unsutpeeted means they may have at their dm purs', what untold hopes they cherish anl what pre sumptuous desires they ooteitaia. The exertions need to obtain I l formal ion on these important points, in order to heed (II s dangerous rival, or, rather, the stralacsasa re sorted to, would astooUh the outside public not a little, atd would supply politicians sod warriors with many a serviceable hint on the science of engineering and sirs iff j. The ladies, however, are not the only parties who take any Interest in such trifles for esoh gentleman Is ssiioua that the lady or ladles in whom he takes sa in terest should appear to advantage, and not be eclipsed by eny of their " particular friends " When the bllla come to be fooled ap It wlU be qaito tuns enough to grumble at expense end decry extravagant habits. At the present moment every fini ng Is merged In s desire to do honor to the occasion, and to be la a condition to court scrutiny and to defy criticism. Thin In the duty of the boor; and whn knows bow great the reward may be I? perhaps dancing with the Prince himself. There la no doubt that the Indies who dance with his Royal Highness?oc perhaps, In deference to the royal Incognito, we should my Baron Renfrew?will be the obeerved of all observers, anl thnlr tolleto will at tract more than usual attention. When It la recollected that all the motives to which we here referred, from the love of precedence d >wn to the desire of being equal to the opportunity, tend to the same sad, we seed not won der that Uwre has bven aa unuaaal demand tor expansive goods, and that the only trouble the dealers hnvs had to contend with wot the difficulty of procuring goods rich enough scd elegant enough to satisfy the sxtgsnat tastes of our New Yoik belles. Indeed, on one point, all deal ers agree, via: the higher the pries Us qsieher Us sals. Wr bate seen the materials of which many of Us dresses for the conjog ball are to be made, soma of then heavy moire antique, others o( light gsusy tulle, but all Ue richest and best of their kind. Dark colored moire antiques and watered silks have been bought generally by elderly ladies, and trimmel, as Ury are, with deep flounces of Cbanlilly cr Brute* Is isce.Uey have a look of rich yet quiet ele gasce that will serve admirably as a sober background lor the lighter and gayer colored dresaea Uat will be brought out tu full relief by the myriad gaslights In the A cadi my of Muric oa Ue evralful sight of the ball But the same materials, la light ooiora, have been equally rue ep.u by the young, and, In truth, nothing e mid be more rxqniaite than some specimens we have seen, par ticularly whits watered silk and moire antique, of a dtllrwte /car dc pre Ac color. That every dry gnnde dialer It Ue city has made purchases and givea ordi is of late with reference to Ue lltb ll crldeut fiom a casual tnspccllaa of the goode, and we were not, thtrefi.re, surprisei to And in btewarl a a supply that might make the Arm est mind unsettled and the oooiest to 'gmrnt undecided. Oos dress of rich Mag'ute crlra son, worth AIM), was strikingly beautiful. The flounces, which were live la number, ware bordered with booqu'ta of velvet flowers, sot s little apart, sad connected with festoon* resembling lacework. The effect of ttls on the deep-toned ground color was very flue, and the isolation of the hooqn'U, by softening down the cwuberant brilliancy of the de ilge. removed the only objection to which It might he considered liable. The trmm.ng was of the name style as Ue flounces, hut narrowed down to a suitable width This pattern was reproduced In different colors, emerald green, ralr b us, Ac Other styles bad seven flnmces, Ue upper one deeper than Ue rest, ta order to svoid the ungraceful appearance of a frtU round the walat. Another style peculiar and striking was formed of alteir nals stripes of watered silk, pink, blue or green. and white satin spritkM with bunches of glowing flowers. Sometimes Ue watered strips was narrow and Us alter nate one of (Ilk.

There la not a fsshlncable eMabltahmeat la the oily that has not something especial for the ball?either dresses laces, trimmings, tans, (lowers, coiffures, or the hundred and one articles which ara Indispen sable on such an occasion. Among these may be Included opera cloaks, of which Heekmsu has a great vane y on exhibition. They are of different shapes? some with hoods, others with berthas?but the majority ate made In the Arab style, which Is so popular at present In every material. In color Uiey are all alike, bell g invariably white; but this rule Is uct absolute with regard to trimming, which is sometimes white and gold, or cherry color and gold, or white and blue, or Magenta asd white, or, In short, any oolor that a lady may faocy or that will harmonise with her dreM. The clonk, with trimmings and tassels of entire white, will have a decided advantage over tbe mixed colors In agreeing with any, or rather every style of dress and headdress, which must also be taken into consideration, and which might considerably complicate the ditfl cully. In Macy's tbey have some rich and beautiful j Chantilly, Brussels and points d'applique flounces, for ball dresses: point laca of different kinds for trimming, and bouquets and coiffures of rare and niqulslta flowers.

A OOLI'LN UAKVKST FOR TUB JEWBLLKRfl. During the put throe or four week* the Jewellers here been doing en Immense business Never before wu there sucb a profitable seaiou for them, end ia se me in stances they find It almost impossible to keep pace with the demands that are dally mado lor the rarest and most costly ornaments. One firm alone, that of rtflaoy & Ob , have sold in two weeks necklaces, bracelets, tiaras, brooches, ke , to the amount of one hundred and lifty thousand dollars, while other establishments have como 'in for their share of the golden harvest. The ladles ap pear to have been seised with a sudden mauls for the most costly article* cf Jewelry, and nothing less than dU monds and pearls will satisfy them In the wa?- of precious stones In a former article we dscribed a necklace of diamonds called by the appropriate title of la Htifrt. for it wuone continued stream or brilliants or the purest water, and there were over a dozen ladies In quiring about It: but as It was impwible for tbem all to buy It, there was, as may be supposed, considerable disappointment. However, it may be well for them to know that there are others of s siml lar description now on hand at the same place It is cur ions to observe how eager the fair purchasers are In their chase after the greatest novelties and lateil styles each determined to exceed the others in the costliness and magnificence ol her Jewelry. In fajt it would seem as tr the value cr this now Indispensable portion of their attire were to settle the question or pre eminence, for never was there sucb rivalry exhibited before as has been displayed In the preparation for the great event. Ths Impulse which his been given to the business has also is sugursted s sew era, and we have no doubt tbe time will oome when some of our wealthiest ladies may vie In tbe value and extent of their bfjesderw with some of the wealthiest rf their titled sisters In any of the European courts Fifteen and sixteen thousand dollars for s necklaco Is getting to be quite an ordinary affair, and we Btould not be surprised one of Ibsse days to hear of forty or ilfty thousand dollar* being paid for a full set. In no other dipartment ef manufactures or art is there such variety, or sucb s wide Aeld for the display of artistic tasls and in genuity. It would be impossible to follow the novelties and changes that are constantly taking place la these exqulalte products of human genius and skill, for no matter what msy be said to the contrary, as works of art they are deserving of all the praise that has been bestowed upon them. In tbe establishment already named they have disposed of nearly two dozen diamond brooches, varying la price from one thousand to two tbouaand Art hundred J dollars These are made In every style la clusters, beautl I folly disposed, the brllltsata set so as to flash out their varied boss with every motion of the wearer Some Hin are formed to represent a branch, with buds and leaves, on which tbe brilliants sparkle like the glaacieg rays of the son on tbe dimpled surface of s stream. A brooch, which Is perhaps the most costly thing of tbe kind that will be worn at the ball, and which Is valued at Ave thousand dollars, will -stiract s large abara or attention In the csatre Is s gorgeous Oriental opal,* little over as inch la diameter surrounded by two circles of brilliants, which arc In striking contrast with tbe chameleoa stone Of neck laces the vale was ao lass extensive, and. as ws hive said, they were of the most costly description. Those mate of pearls and dAmondt are In great demand, ana they are tpl'mMd specimens of Jewelry la tbe establishment of Ball, Btank k Co. we saw a diamond set worth twenty Ave thousand dollar*, whiah wsa deservedly lbs cynosure of wondering ayes The bracelet was a perfect U ririere, and glittered and sparkled beneath the light, flashing upon the sight with a brilliancy that only the beat diamonds pas eees. As opal cameo brooch was on# of the sovelties on exhibition at this house, and viewed as a work of art aloae, it waa a perfect gem The opal was sat rcuad with a harder of brilliants, and the whole was about so tneh sod s half Is diameter. This b-ooch was worth twenty five hundred dollars. Another brooch, whir.li waa at the same tim# both cbaats and gorgeons, was made so as to rsprveent s branch, with leaves sad buda and pendant sprajs, and wet valued at three thousand Ave b tndrtd dollars It was one of tbe moat deservedly admired or j cameouof the kled which we hare seen There were a number of amethyst earners, which wilt doubtless be much won, as they promise to become fovortle orne moots In ring* the dlnplny was very Aoe. sad there was one with a single diamond which alone waa worth twenty three handred dollars. A sect lac? of pearls and diamonds, a wotk of art of much merit, waa oae of the gems on exhibition at this establishment, and It possessed oos novel feature which renders It particularly appropriate for Ihe ball. This was an imitation of tbe Prlnos of Wales* plume A pretty conceit designed for a brooch consisted of the same | unes, with the wel, known motto, "fch dim *' bereath them. A brooch, with a gigantic carbuncle act round wllh brilliants, was one ef tbe novelties in the Use of Jewelry, and will doubtless make its srpearanes si the ball la headdresses there will be a great display, and tbe same extravagance Is exhibited la Uims a* is other artM-lee of Jewelry.

New York, Oct 9, 1860 Would It not be well for you to suggest to oar city authorities that If tbey would dlsi>enae with the street sprinkling process on the day of the reception of iBe Prince of Wales tbey would add very materially to the appearance of our military? The Rum pavement, when wet, la very slippery, making it very difficult for the men to march well, ted rendering it a'moat impossible for tbem to koep a good alignment If wa wish the Prince to see our volunteer force, and to form any opinion of them, we certainly with hi n to form a good one, aud, on tha principle that " a stitch in time eaves nine," I write to ycu, believing that a word from \ou would bring the mat ter to lbs attention of tao proper parties, and perhaps prevent the sprinkling, thereby not only adding to Itie comfort of the men, but a'so preventing much disorder anil confusion in the ranks, which other vise must occur.
