WASHOE MINING FESTIVITIES. - A Virginia lady writes to a lady friend of hers in this city, that great preparations are making there for a grand fancy dress ball, to come off soon at the handsome brick edifice erected near the mine by the Chollar Company for the use of its officers. The Grass Valley will have to levy one more assessment now, and get up a masquerade to keep even. They must either do that, or make Felton pay his back assessments. The Gould & Curry gave a grand ball lately, at Virginia, and see what came of it.
