The Inauguration Ball.

--This ball, which took place in Washington on Monday night, is said to have been well attended. There was a brilliant array of beauty and fashion.--One of the ladies is represented to have been attired in two thousand dollars' worth of laces and twenty thousand dollars' worth of diamonds. At 12 ¬ľo'clock the quadrille of the evening was danced-- Douglas and Mrs. Lincoln, Hamlin and Miss Edwards, Mayor Berret and Mrs. Bergman, Mr. Harrard and Mrs. Baker composing the set. Miss Edwards, niece of Mrs. Lincoln, was acknowledged to be the belle of the evening. The ladies of the Presidential party were, according to Jenkins, dressed exquisitely.
