On entering, the King was received with the post enthusiastic applause; sstiSi 'tfafSam the Kirg was played with the usual testimonies of joy. Several passages alluding to love for the Kino, were seized, in (he course of the play by the audience, aini marked with three or four distinct OPERA HOUSE.

With Opera, it is not lounded on l.wiis TonwsiiLXDS ball. On Wednesday evening the two eldest daughters of the Larl of LfctCF-STtK gave a grand Ball and Supper at the noble family mansion, in Gros-venor-squure. Itwasbyfar, both with respect to preparations, expencc, and company, the most splendid thing of the kind seen in the fashionable circles this season. The House is one of the best adaptel to give eclat to such entertainments, being very extensive. The ball-room is 40 feet by 26, and it was on the above night uncommonly brilliant.

The chandelier in the center of the room was magnificent. The chalked floor was more than usually beautiful the centre piece represented an i i' I 3 i i 1-2 I 23 3 I 20 43 V7 1 a ai 10 31 ,5 .6 6 2t Wj oi fa 6 i. 1 1 3 4 I 8 I I 5 I 6 91 15 35 -I 1 0 1 0 1 1 6 11 21 is 40 1 1 it 1 5 1 1 1 1 i l6 9 I 4 7 A 5i 83 5 I U. 2v'-i 1 I I 4 196 25 217 218 I ib In Port and r. with sdaled -In the ar.d Irish Channels On the Downs Norrh-Sea it.i- ticiii At the West-India Islands, and on the Fjssago On.

At the conclusion, instead of the usual Chorus, gW fc the Ktrrg was played, and afterwar Is sung. Rule Britannia followed, each received with rapture.

The Rovat. Family were highly delighted with Mrs. Jordan and Bans istkk in The to Ray; they both acted admirably. After the Entertainment Cod Sarve ike King wa's sung with stiil more zeal, the Qrr, fn and pRiNCf.sKs ardently joining in the choius. The King was dressed in regimcntak the Oi ff.s in white and silver, with lilac satin robe; headdress the same as when last at the play.

The Princesses Ar sta, Elizabeth, Sophia, and Mary, were all in white and silver, with white feathers and diamonds in their head-dresses. The Marquis of Salisbury, Earls Harcourt ar.d Morton, were in attendance. The House was crouded, and never were Their Majesties more heartily welcomed in a Theatre. b- House was not such as she ig ij i to -eil s'ie nevertheless went through spirit, and displayed her great i vtV. nv.

Imperial crown, with the Admirals or England under, incircled by a mantle composed of red and white rosesj the thistle, and the shamrock. Other fan. cilul devices were introeluccd, among which were the PiiiNt t's feathers, at the four corners of the room. The whole had the appearance of crayon painting, and did great credit to Mr. Calton.

The company began to assemble at ten o'clock and about half an hour after the ball was opened with Sir Dii-iJ Hunter ELir, by Captain Me hay, and Lady II.

"ii -sed tins season. In to-morrow': ll1 present a list of the com; any. r. It ous of being informed of the The second dance was Parhot's Hornpipe, and at the conclusion of the third, vS7- Charles Douglas. The company who danced amounted to about five couple.

About the rime of the Prince's arrival (soon after twelve o'clock), the crowd was so great, that although the music continued, the dancing was put a stop to, and the harmony of the whole scene would have been destroyed, had not the noble Earl of Alio a with his spirited partner, made an opening, by dancing down the centre, to the great discomposure of Opera hats and fans. At hah alter one supper was announced, which was in every respect elegant. In the grand supper room, the library, anil the supper was laid for two hundred, in consequence of the company being more numerous than was expecled, additional tables were set out for 100 more these not "being sufficient, several of the tables were replenished, was near three before the company returned to the ball-room. The dancing recommenced with. 67.

Kilh's Reel, introduced for the first time as a country -drmce reels, and Strathspeys, followed, until a quarter after six, when the music ceased, and the company retired to the lower rooms, where tea, coffee, and chocolate, were served out. It was nearly half after seven before the whole of the com-nany had retired. The party amounted to above four hundred, and the crowd was so great that the Prince of Wales could not get to the upper end of the balLroom. The great pressure made the room excessively warm, many Ladits nearly fainted, and it was not without great diculty they could get out of the apartment. After supper a part of thj company retiring to their carriages gave room for the rest to pass the evening to the purposes for which it was destined.

It was remarked that the Ladies were all extremely well is well as richly dressed. The Marchioness ot Salisbury was attired in white satin, with a headdress composed of the Paradise a diamond crescent and star in the front, and a diamond star behind the sleeves of her Ladyship's dress were festooned up by rubies and diamonds. The Countess of Ci.oNv.Ft.L wore a white embroidered dress; her head-dress was by far the most brilliant, being com. posed of a bandeau of black velvet, enriched by nir.nerous diamond stars around the head in the front, her Ladyship wore the thistle and shamrock, wholly composed of diamonds. Gold and silver muslin dresses were much worn.

Among the company were The Prince of Wales. Orleans, and St. Alban's. jf itfom of the common saying of April F. VKXI.Nf; I) P.

Mr. Garrow stated, that this was an indictment against Hill Darly, Esq. a gentleman very well known to one part of the world, in consequence of his having assaulted a Mr. E.mbdkn the cause of that assault arising out of a quarrel about money won at a game or play called Over Seven or under Seven. The indictment was founded on a particular statute, which enacted, That if any person assaulted, or challenged, or insulted another, in consequence of any gambling transaction, or by reason of any quarrel concerning money won ar play, the party convicted thereof should be sentenced to imprisonment for two years." He should prove that Hill Darly, Esq.

had violated every one of the enactments of the statute. He had insulted the prosecutor he had assaulted him he had challenged him he had kicked him he had threatened to break his neck, and wa? about to throw him out of the window be.t the prosecutor very wisely, instead of waiting the completion of the ceremony, retreated down stairs. He lamented much, that the vice of gambling was so very prevalent, as every day's experience proved what mischiefs it produced in society. It was not very easy for him to state the minutm of the play, for he was so impenetrably stupid, thai he nevr could learn to comprehend any one game of chance. But so it happened, that Mr.

Hill Darly had a sum of money last summer, at Brighton, to Mr. Embdf.n, the prosecutor but having lost it, he refused to pay it, and insisted the prosecutor should go on playing and he alleged this curious reason for not paying, that he had made such arrangements, it was impossible he could have lost the money he had been chearei. In phiin English, said. Mr. Garrow, it amounted to this; that he had laid such a scheme for cheating the prosecutor, that he must have won, unless he had been outchated by him.

They met, however, the next evening, when the prosecutor insisted on having his money but, instead of getting it, he received the challenging, kicking, and drubbing, for which this prosecution was instituted. Mr. Charles Embdes said, he was at Brigh'on in August last summer; on the 10th, he met Mr. Darly, at the Subscription House, and played Hazard with him. He lost some money at this game.

They then played at under seven and over seven. He had never played this game before but Mr. Darly told him, it was the most fair cf all possible games. At first, he lost 30 or 40I. at guinea stakes.

He then increased his stakes to 5I. and won upwards of 50I. He called for his money, and declined playing any more. Darly said, he must give him his revenge. After some altercation they agreed to meet the next night, which they did, at the New Ship.

The prosecutor agreed to make the 50L tool, and that they should throw 100 stakes at 5I. each. Darly agreed, but would r.ot put down the 50I. th. prosecutor had won.

He told him if he did not pay, he knew the way to make him do it. Darly said, he would know how that was to be done. The other said, he could not male him tell that. Darly said, he would force it out of him, and then he proceeded to assault him. The assault being also proved by another witness, and no defence made, the defendant was found- Cuilty.

Mr. Garrow afterwards sat in the Crown Court and tried several prisoners. Ve understand an English sloop, hired for the purpose of conveying the materials and stores of the French brig stranded a short time ago near Shoreham, reached Dover Roads on -Sunday, on her way to a French port, and was detained by the Commander of an English gun-vessel, but on what account we are not informed. A few days ago, Mr. Hodges, of Dover, set out from the Royal Oak Inn, to run fo the Star, in Canterbury, in the space of twu hours and a half, being the distance of sixteen miles; the first eight miles (although the worst part of the roa.i, he accomplished in one hour arid seven minute, and performed the whole of this extraordinary fear, within the limited time, by one minute, notwithstanding he experienced a fall just before the termination of his journey.
