A young editor describes a lcapyear party at Avondale, ()., as follows: The ladies opened their own dainty anc pcrfuined pocket books and took the pin money which they had been laying anide to purchase a lace tic, a ncw spring bonnet, oi 8ome other kniek-knack of fashion, anc footed the bilĂ­ like little men. And another nice feature was, that tho gentlemen were called for in elegant carriages by their fair escorts. Ader the gentlemen had made their toilcts and pulled down their thrce-bultonec vests, they descended i'roni their boudoirs to the parlors of their luxurious homes, and there in wraps and shawls witli llicii dainty feet encased in rubbers to keep from catching cold, and chatting wit li their mammas about their last new nuit, tlicy awaited the coming of their lady escorts. It was found by the gentlemen to be a delightful experience. And then it was to nice to sit aroupd in chaire, all in a row, next the wall, during the evening, lookin; sosweet, while waiting for the young hulien to cali around and say, " May I have the picasure of' the next waltz with you?"
