Tableaux Vivants.

--One of the most pleasing social events of the season transpired at a private residence on Church Hill, last Friday night. The prominent feature was a series of tableaux, which proved entirely successful, as well as vastly entertaining to the participants and the large crowd present. The first was the Confederate States of America, in which each State was represented by a young lady appropriately attired. Maryland and Missouri had each a place in the picture, but threatened and guarded by Federal soldiers. Several interesting scenes followed, all taste fully arranged. The finale, a Gipsey scene, was remarkable for its diversity of costume, and its extreme beauty. Appropriate music accompanied each successive tableau, adding materially to the effect. The whole affair was creditable to the management and the young ladies and gentlemen who participated. A similar exhibition, with a benevolent and patriotic object in view, given in some large hall, would doubtless be generously patronized; but we do not mean this as a suggestion, for as a general rule young ladies are naturally and properly averse to appearing ‘"in public, on the stage."’
