The President's last levee.
--The President's levee on Tuesday night was Mr. Buchanan
It was the largest of his administration, and was very brilliant.
It is estimated that at least five thousand people were in attendance.
The venerable heads of the Peace Congress were prominent among the throng.
In contrast with these were the representatives of the army and navy, attired in their brilliant warlike trappings.
All the leaders of the incoming administration now in the city were present.
Of the officers of the present Cabinet Mr. King
was present; also nearly all the Foreign Ministers
The President expressed no regret that his end had come, and Miss Lane never did the honors more gracefully.
She was attired in pure white, and during the whole evening was surrounded with hosts of friends and admirers, each one of whom seemed to have a parting word to say. Everybody seemed to be merry, the outgoing as well as the incoming.--The band played ‘"Away Down in Dixey"’ and closed with ‘"Yankee Doodle
."’ The number of ladies present was very large.--Washington Letter.
