A ‘"Personal"’ Paragraph
--We copy the following from a late Northern paper:
They have had a grand ball lately in Richmond
, according to females secede authority in Baltimore
, at which Miss
, one of the pretty daughters of Mr. Wilson Carey
, a prominent secessionist reached of that city, figured most conspicuously.
The story goes that she appeared at the bill dressed as a captive slave, with her hands tied at the wrists, and bearing the shield of Maryland
on her bosom, indicating thereby the chains by which that State is kept in the Union
came forward curing the evening and released her manacled hands by untying the cords that bound her wrists, and thus, in the person of the lovely Miss Hetty Carey
, freed Maryland
from her bondage to the Union
power, amid the stormy applause of the company.
and one of her sisters are earning a livelihood as clerks in the Confederate Administration
This event has created the most intense delight and sympathy in the upper crust of secessiondom.
