The first ball of the Family Circle Dancing Class
for this season was given last evening at
Delmonico's. The floor of the ball-room was
over-hauled and almost entirely renovated for the
occasion. The only decorations used were the
lambrequins, curtains, portieres, &c., generally
used for the Patriarch balls. Refreshments such as
coffee, tea, bouillon, and ices were served in the
small room adjoining the ball-room to the west, and
supper was served in the restaurant on Fifth avenue
at 12:30. A variation of the usual programmed of the
Family C9rcle Dancing Class balls was furnished by
deferring the cotillion until after supper. The
cotillion began at 1 o'clock with about 75 couples.
There were no favors. It was led by Mr. Charles
Russell Hone, with Miss Turnure. The ball began
about 11 o'clock and ended about 2:30. About 250
persons were present, among whom were
