A very numerous and fashionable assembly took place at the Three Salmons Usk on Friday tile Ath inst. The Stewards were F. Me Donnell and William Hunter Little, Esqrs. and our correspondent says that it would be as difficult to adequately describe their attention as it would be to pourtray the beauty and grace that adorned the ball room." Amongst the elite we noticed W. A. Williams. Esq. M. P. and Lady; Benjamin llall, Esq. M. I', Joseph Bailey, Esq. of Glan Usk; Edward Jones, Esq.

The Clifton baud was in attendance, and ministered to the light fantastic toe till nearly 6 o'clock on the following morning. About half past twelve supper was announced, which reflected the highest credit on the Miss Prichards'. After supper Mr Little proposed tho health of the ladies, without whom he felt convinced the pleasing reminiscences of the past night, and the prospective ones of the coming morning, would not be called into existence.—Drank enthusiastically. Mr M'Donnell then proposed the health of our County Member Mr Williams, and our Borough Member Mr Halt-The latter gentleman returned thanks in a neat speech. Mr Bailey's health was then proposed by the stewards, and drank with universal good feeling- by the reds and billes.-Tiie same gentleman in an appropriate speech returned thanks. Upon returning to the ball-room the sparkling scene had lost none of its previous attractions. Dancing continued till a late hour. Our correspondent gallantly closes his account with a poetical quotation from Byron, in praise of the beauty of the fair sex, for which we regret we cannot find room.
