Old Taueuil resounded with the most enthusiastic and heartfelt applause. The Lmbassador ol" Peace was greeted by well deserved acclamations It was 110 nollow compliment paid to his Lordship's rank or his wealth. It was tin-spontaneous tribute ol the citizens ot a tree republic to the noble qualities ot lus head uud heart?qualities wliich had led him in the evening of his hie, to forego the comforts and indulgences ot his home, and to visit it toreign land?lor the beneticem and magnanimous purpose of averting the horrors ol impending war, uud preserving the relations ot peace between two great nations?one ot which was his own country, and the other beurtng towards that country, kindred connections, and a kindred origin.

(Great applause.) I trust the citizens of Boston will accept the expression ol my gratitude, and believe that I have not bsen insensible to the friendly feeling which has been so cordially manifested towards ma during my short residence among them. It i: now something like half a century since I first visited this city, and from that day to the present hour, I have regarded the progress of the arts, of science, and of free principles among yon, with the most lively interest. When I arrived in your countrx at this advanced period of my life, I felt that a great responsibility was resting upon me; but the labor 1 had to perform is accomplished, and 1 can now return to KnglanJ, and to my kindred, with the pleasing recollection of your kindness to me, and with the fullest assurance that every obstacle will be removed which has hitherto obstructed the two most powerful nation, on the globe from indulging their kind and natural sympathies towards each other, and exerting their influence for the amelioration of the human race, and the advancement of free principles and equal rights, (applause.)

(Loud and continued chcunng.) His Lordship concluded by thanking Ilia Honor, the Mayor, for the flattering manner in which he had introduced him to the assembly, and for the kind and considerate attentions he had received on the part of the Common Council and the citizens generally. This speech was received with great satisfaction, and frequently interrupted by bursts ol applause. After it was concluded, a very large number of citizens were introduced, individually, to Lord Ashburton. and had the pleasure to shake him by the hand?the introduction being made by the Mayor.

The journal of yesterday was read by the Judge Advocate. Purser Spukdes, wishing to correct Ilia testimony of yesterday, was recalled by the Judge Advocate, and stated as follows:? " My evidence of yesterday before the Court conveys the idea that the marines did resliip as well as the seamen. 1 wish now to be disiiuctly understood that 1 do not know from any evidence in my possession that the marines did reship, but inter trom tnr tact ol their being mustered at me same time the seamen were, and afterward* received the bounty, as did the seamen, to go the cruise ih the exploring ex;>edition, they did ao?understanding the term* in the same light an did the seamen. And I would further state that the marines are never required to sign the same articles with the men. These are the sentiments I have always entertained luce the sailing of the expedition, and have free -nf!y exorepsed them." Major Hows called by the Judge Advocate, and sworn. Questioned by Judge Auvocatk.?State whether there is on file in your office any evidence that the marines attached to the exploring expedition ever re-enlisted, or that there ever been auy such evidence these. A.?No, Sir; 1 have searched for such articles, and could find none whatever. Q.?Has any evidence of any kind ever conte to you to lead you to believe that these men ever re-enlisted after joining the squadron! A.?None. Q.?If there had been auy such re-enlistment, would not a record of it be on file in your office! A.?Yea, there should be. Q.?Since you have been in the service, have vou ever known of the re-enlistment ol any marine who had three years to serve! A.?No, I have no such recollection. Ciou-txartiintd by Mr. Hamilton, through the Judge Advocate. Q.?You have said you have never known of the re-enlistinent of marines who have had three years to serve, I ask you if you have ever known of the reshinuinff of seamen who bail three ee:irj t? servel jlA.?1 know nothing of the slhpping'of beamen. Q ? Is or is not the only imornuition you have on the subject derived from the fact of not having teen articles of re-enlistment on file in your office ( A.?That ia the only knowledge 1 have on the subject. v Lieut. Hudson recalled by Mr. Hamilton; and examined through the Judge Advocate, who read ovtr his testimony of yesterday. Lieut. Hudson pointed out several alterations which he wished made in regard to phraseology, icc., and in the course of au incidetik^fcouveniatiou with the Judge Advocate, said that he had seen in this morning's Herald a letter of his (referring to his report to the Secretary of ihe Navy) JaUtly printed, as it made him say that " On Sunduy morning, Jan. 19th," he Hiade what was believed to be land, icc., whereas his report .o the Secretary reads ' on Sunday the 19th," 6cc. The Judge Advocate took up two documents from ihe table, and called the attention of the Court to the fact that they were two reports on the same subject, bearing the same date, both signed by Lt. Hudson, and directed to the Secretary of the Navy. The official Report on the Record of lite Court and which was sent to the Secretary by Lt. Wilkes attached to his report, No. 63, slated that "on Sunday morning, January 19th," they saw appearances of land from on board the Peacock, while ihe other Report was a verbuiim transciipt of it, wnli this important difference that it read "on Sunday, January 19th" leaving out the word "morning," which was a most serious alteration. Mr. Hamilton said that ths Report which ihe Judge Advocate characterised as official, was not the paper put by him in evidence, and he did not recognise it; that the other report, in which the word " morning" did not occur, was the correct report, and the only one on the record. The JrsoE Advocate replied that the report to which Mr. Hamilton referred had just been handed to him by the Rcpo.ttr fur the Kxprcu, and was not the report on his files. Lt, Hcdson was asked which was the report he had shown to him yesterday, and said the one in which the word " morning did not occur, when Mr Hamilton again repeated that it was the one he tead from, and which was ordered to go on the record, and he supposed the Reporter had taken it from the table and returned it aguin. The Judge Advocate said, he supposed yesterday that Mr. Hamilton was reading a correct copy of the report sent by Lt. Wilkes to the Department, or he would not have consented that it should have been received. Air. Hamilton remarked that the difference between the two reports was unimportant. The Jr-poe Advocate replied that the difference w?a of the greatest importance, that the copy offered bv Mr. Hamilton left out the point on which the whole question now before the Court hinges, as to whether land was seen on the morning of the 19th or nor. Lt. Hudson hao prepared a report to the Secretary of the Navy, saying that " on Sunday morning, the 19th, he saw from the Peacock what they believrd to he land," and another report appears leaving out the word " morning," and is also claimed as the original report, evidently showing that n most imppit int alteration had been ma somewher After some further conversation, the Coui. creded with the examination of Lt. Hudson. By Mr. Hamilton?Were any alterations in your report made in consequence of what the French Exploring Expedition was reported to have done in the Antarcticl A ?J don't recollect what day we heard that the French had made the discovery; I think the report was made out before I heard that they claimed making n discovery. The question was repeated to the witness, at the suggestion of Mr. Humilton, when he answered, *.>0. Q?Did yon, when sending the report to Lieut. Wilkes call his attention to the omission of the word "morning," in one report, and which was in the other 1 A ?I did not. Q.?Is it usual when receiving two copies of reports to collate them with each other for the purpose of ascertaining whether they are literal copies or not; or is not confidence in eucli matters reposed in those who send them? A.?It is not usual lor those who receive them, hut it is the duty of those who send them to do so. Q.? When aid you first know that the word "morning" was in one report and not the other? A?This morning, when I saw it in the Herald. Q.?Were they not both copied by your elerkl A.?They were. Q.?Did Lieut. Wilkes ever suggest to yen whnt you should put in your report in any manner? A.?No. Q.?How were your compasses to be depended upon forgiving correct bearings in the Antartic? A.?They could not he depended upon at all without continual shaking. The ship Has wore round without the compass card moving. Q.?Would the two ships on the morning of the 19th make different bearings of the same object? A.? From their position they would. O.? From your recollection will you state which of the two reports represents the fact in regard to time, of the appearance ol land, that which contains the word "morning," or the other? A..?Tliar which leaves out the word "morning." Cross-examined by the .Tcdok Advocate. Jcthik Advocate?Yon have said these two reports were both copied by your clerk; compare them and sav whether they are both the saint- hand writing or not? A.?I can't say; the clerk can tell his own handwriting. I CL? Where is that clerk? , A.?He is confined to hi? house by sickness; his name is Stewart. Q.?

Q.?Were you attached to the Peacock and did you see land on ihe 19ih January, Id 101 itate particularly. A.?I wa? attached to the Peaccck, and raw lond to the best my knowledge late on the ulieim cn of that day; it cuuaed considerable excitemct t tmong the officers 1 was ut the mast hend ai least 'wo or three hours during that liny, and what 1 saw uaa much higher than any inland or iceberg 1 have tvetseen. 'J be form, also ot this epneurai ce of laud was very diffeient from any ice isiund- 1 had bee? cruising south over two \eiirs. Q.?Did you eee land any day prior to the 19lh; if yea,when ^ A.?I believe 1 saw it on the ICth, between 10 and 11 A M. I went to the meintopmatt* reetfrecs with Lt. Reynolds, as it was my cuti. m to do every day while crui*ing in those sens. We bctii of us immediately exclaimed, and simultaneously 1 be. lieve, "there is the land " There were three ic* umrkahle peaks; one ot a conical figure, biicJ two more of a dome like appearance, much like numn* tains of a volcanic formation Alter locking "t it for some time we sent down for ;< spy gluts end < *. a mi tied it very clo.-ely, and came to the concliiMon hat it could he nothing else than tertu fitrnu. Thu, like the land 1 have spoken of on the 19th, was very much higher than any ice island, and a very strong reason 1 would give for its being laud is, lliut all ice island* he lure beii g detached Irnm the sc.ore or barrier are invariably tjble topped,in large tqu.ire pieces, and never become of different figure* until they I have undergone vicissitudes of climate, until being I i<roK<*ii oy meiung or tneir own weight, und the ro tary motion given these bergs by ibe e?*u breaking over them. It wax a clear and benniitul d.ty v. in. a tew patches of light cumulus limiting hi h above the horizon, so as not to come incontaU wnh this appearance of land. Q ?Did you see land subsequent to the 19th 1 A?Yes sir, to the best of my belief on ihc 23d and 24th. On the 23d I landed on the ice tor the pttroese of making magnetic observations. Q.?Were eoundings gotten at any time by the Peacock ; if yea, when and at what depth! A.?They weregotten on the 23d while Iwnsrbseiit from the ship taking magnetic observations. The depth was 820 fathoms; blue mud una a piece of rock were brought up. Q ? Did you see the Vincennes on the 10th. and at what distance ? A.?I don't know whether I did or did not. Q.?

He immediately remarked he hud no doubt it ?ni land; he also siid he had no doubt the many ire i-lands and bergs intervening were aground, and that the wind w j9 light und the swell toward." the hairier was so great that he deemed it necessary to go no further, or pot the ship about, 1 forget which; but he saiu if it was land we would see more of it in a few dave. I went to Mr. Reynolds and told him whHt Lt. Hud :on had said, the conversation having taken place in the cabin; he said it was strange he did not come up to | examine or send some one aloft to see the appearance, and I felt mortified, because 1 felt unxiouo about it. Q.?When the Peacock returned to Sydney had not the circumstance of the appearhncecf lend cn the 19th passed away, and was it net treated so lightly nt least so far as Lt. Hudson was concerned, that no claim was set up to any discovery on that davit Mr. Hamilton objected to the onestion on the ground that the answer could onlv dc the specula lions or opinion of the witness, and that the Judge Advocate had, by Lt. Hudson, his own witness, proved that he did mnke a Henort to the Secret* '< f the Nnvy, claiming the discovery ol land on that day, and the only intention of the que?tion i? to discredit the testimony of Lt. Hudson on that point, which he is not permitted to do. The Court was cleared to consider the objection of Mr. Hamilton, and when the doors were reo|?-ned, the Judge Advocate stated he had withdrawn the question. Passed Midshipman Eld's examination was than resumed. Q.?State whether a formal claim of the discovery of land on the 19th of January, was set tip before it was ascertained that the French claimed such a discovery on the evening of the 19th 1 A ?I do not know that there waa by the commander. 1 laid claim to it myself. Q.?By Hamilton ?May it not have been set up for all you know before any thing was known of the French claim ! A.?That might have been very readily, but I never heard of it. Capt.

Q.? Did any of the marines of the Exploring Expedition receive a bounty, anil for what was it received ? A.?Many of the marines received threp months pay as a bounty, with ihe full understanding that thev would serve out the cruise.
