This young gentleman is the third son of Louis Phillippe of France. In his travels in this country, he has received the most distinguished atlention from our citzens. In New York, they gave him a splendid ball. The Bostonians also got up a ball in Faneuil Hall in favor of the royal stripling. The old Hall was decorated in splendid style. Fifteen hundred persons were present. The tickets were ten dollars each. The female dresses, of course corresponded in richness with the importance of the occasion. The whole expense, directly and indirectly has been estimated from thirty to fifty thousand dollars. Only of our of the troop of fashionable ladies present had the prodigious honor of dancing with a Prince - a genuine son of a king! It will doubtless be a consolation to them all their days.
