New Year's was rather noisily celebrated in Berlin. On New Year's eve there were sixty-three fancy balls. The streets at 12 o'clock on the last night of 1864 were filled with foot passengers. Every one was shouting at the top of his voice the usual congratulations on the arrival of the new year.--Unter den Linten the rabble had collected in unusual numbers. Great excesses were committed.--Assaults were the order of the evening; and on several occasions it came to a desperate struggle between the police, who fought with their sabres, and the mob, which carried on the combat with brickbats and large pocket-knives. Though no one was fatally wounded, a large number of persons received serious injuries.
