We published in part of our edition yesterday, the announcement of the arrival of the steamship Washington. We now give in full the particulars of the voyage : Account of the Voyage of the Washington. Steamer Wajhsotow. J Sandy Hook, January 16tb, 1847. ) The undersigned, passengers by the eteauer Washinsrf.rm nn ha? Info neisaoa feom flnnthrantnn to Naw York, deem it their duty to make known the oauses of [ their detention, and at the same time, to pay no unmerited oompllment to the officers of the ateamer. In oooeequenoe of a norm, whioh prevented the taking in of eoais, the Washington did not leave Southampton on the afternoon ef the lath of December, aa appointed, bnt sailed at an early hour the following morning. We encountered a oonstant suoeeaalon of aevere western gales, the wind Mowing almost a hurricane from the time of leaving the Needles, until onr arrival in Halifax. Many of us who have often oroased the Atlantic, have never experienced such a continuance of bad weather. The Captain thought it prudent on the eighteenth day out, although we had snflloient ooals for live or six days steaming, to ahape his oourae for Halifax. We were at the entrance of the harbor on the morning of the 9 th inst.; but it being foggy, we ooul I not enter it until the next morning. The machinery of the Washington having been kept In constant and hard service since the vessel commenced running, was not in perfeot order, and we were obliged to stop a number of times during the passage to repair it, losing at least fifty hours steaming. We oannot bestow too muoh praise on the able ebief engineer, Mr. Mars, for his indefatigable energy and active ingenuity in overcoming almost Insurmountable difficulties. We remained fifty-six hours at Halifax,to take in coals and repair the machinery. From thence to Sandy Hook we have had fine weather and a qulok passage. It 1* now our pleasing doty to render, in thli public manner, our graUTul acknowledgment* to Captain Johutton, for hi* kindness and courtesy, and to exprea* our admiration of hi* skill and judgment as a commander. No ene oonld hare disoharged those duties more asssduously and untiringly. Notwithstanding the adverse winds and wares, the accommodations of the Washington are so good and ample, that we hare been exoeedingly oomfortable. The strong ship behared so well and bore herself so brarely in the storm, that we oannot oloee without expressing our opinion, that when her maohinery is put in thorough order, (whloh may be easily done,for the main parts are not defeetlre,) this noble steamer will make as safe and speedy passages as any that now orosses the Atlantio.

[From the Halifax Courier, Jan. 11 ] Our commercial circles were startled yesterday morning by the report of a large steamer, bearii g Amerloan colors, being off the harbor. She came to Cunard'a wharf at half-past nine o'clock, an* proved to be the United States steamer Washington. This steamship Is one of the " American Ooean Mail Line," built to use both steam and sails, and to run regularly between New York and Southampton. She was finished last summer, and made her first trip from New York In September last So that she is a new ship, and in a trial with the French steamship New York before she left for Kurope. she sailed two miles to the Frenchman's one. She is a ast mass, of over 3000 tons burthen, and is one ot the finest American ships that ever floated on the ocean On her present trip the Washington left Southampton the day after the Caledonia, (which vessel arrived here on Monday morning week, In 1,'>X days, and sailed at eight o'olook the same morning for Boston.) The Washington encountered a series of very heavy gales, which dlslocated seme of her machinery, store her wheel house, and thus nrotiacted her passage even to this port to >\% day*. She pat in to refit and take in a treeti supply of coals, and atart this evening or to-morros In making this port, the Washington name inaide of the Isle id liable, and tha* eared oonalderabla distance, by eaa and ourrent, and haa the advantage of putting herself in condition 700 milea thia aide of her port of declination, which It la peaaible, taking the dangers of the aea into aooount, aha might nerar hare reached In her disabled condition. Onr readers will understand that we do not say aueh a disaster wonld be likely to happen. Tha Waehington might hare sailed the reet of the distance to New York; but in oaae of herd winds, there is no knowing how long she might hare knocked about en the wild waters.

Guizot considered that, by adopting a hostile bearing towards the radicals of Switzerland, he might conciliate the despotic powers in Europe, and relieve himself from the state of isolation in which he was placed by the Spanish marriages. The Presse, moreover, taunts M. Guizot with having borrowed from the government ol Louis XVIII. a precedent for interfering in the domestic quarrels of other nations. Louis XVIII. interfered in Spain, under the pretence of preserving it from anarchy. M. Guizot has influenced the northern powers to commence a crusade ugainst the revolutionary spirit which is said to exist in Switzerland, as they countenanced in 1822 the idea of an expedition ugainst the revolutionary spirit in Spain. The Presse prophecies that M. Guizot will, in the end, liud himself without any alliance, and exposed to the iU-will ol Lord Palmerston and the displeasure of Prince Metternich. The Commerce has calculated, that during the last seventeen years no less than 1,120 prosecutions had been directed against the journals in the name of King Louis Philippe, who had inaugurated his accession to the throne by u formal promise that no prosecu tion snouia oe in iiuure lnsiiiuiea ugainsT nie press.

The general discussion on the address was closed in the Senate on the 0th. and the first three paragraphs were adopted without any opposition. Uu the 10ih, the discussion opened ou the fourth parugraph, relative to the proximate termination oi the negotiation with Rome, to which M. Cabello moved an amendment expressive of the Senate's desire that the arrangement with Rome might be effected without any derogation to the rights and prerogatives of the crown. M. Arrazola, the Minister ol Justice, and M. Santaell i,as a member of the committee, combated the amendment, which was not taken into consideration. The Archbishop of Burgos aext proposed to insert in the address a clause to the effect that n project of law providing a becoming, secure, and independent dotation for the clergy, be submitted to tiie Chambers. M. Arrazola invited the prelate to withdraw his motion, and M Santaella declared, in the name of the committee, that he could not accept it. The debate on the amendment recommenced, and was still proceeding on the 11th. The discussion in the Chamber of Deputies possessed but little interest. Our correspondent mentions that the French government had obtained trom the Emperor of Morocco the cession of the Zefartna Islands,on the coast of Airicu, adjoining Mdilla. Fhnsc Islands belonging to Spain, the Queen's government had ordered two steamers, with two battalions and two batteries ot artillery, to pro* ceedthither lorthwith, to prevent tne French troin taking possession of tne islands.

Our private Utters from Berne, of the 13th instant, state that M. Guizot is very much enraged at Lord I'almerston, on account of his declaration that the occasion for intervention is uow at an end in Switzerland ; and it is even added that ihe Erench minister ia prepared to act in concert with Austria 111 the matter, without regard to Eugland. This intelligence, however, lias produced very little or no anxiety. The elections for the Grand Council of Lucerne were over ; the seventy-live members returned were all liberals.

Within the last few days a great change has ocourred In the aspeot of business In this department. Manufaotukks in Virginia.?From all quarters, we hear of the erection ol manufacturing establishments,of one sort or other, upon the most extensive scale, and in States where manufactories have been heretofore unknown. Old establishments have been greatly improved and enlarged, to enable their proprietors to meet the increased demand for their productions. These results have followed under the tarifT of IS 1(5, and furnish abundant evidence of the wisdom and judgment of Secretary Walker, the distinguished author and originator of that leading measure. fn the counties of Botetourt, Alleghany, Rockbridge, and Augusta, in Western Virginia, iron ore is very abuudant, and new iron establishments are springing up with unparalleled rapidity. Old establishments, that had been permitted to go down, have recently been revived, and are uow in successful operation. In the county of Botetourt, we have five furnaces now in operation, and others are expected to be shortly commenced. The old Etna furnace has, within the last three years, been purchased by an enterprising cpmpany of Pcnusylvanians, who have improved it upon an extensive scale, and the whole establishment has been placed upon a permanent footing. This establishment is under the management of Mr. Allbright, and is making from fifty to seventy tons per week. In Alleghany county, the Lucy Salina furnace, the property of Col. John Jordan and Sons, has been 111 successful operation for several years past, and has been doing a very profitable business. In the year just closed, they have made, as I have bean credibly inforihed, 1,432 ions of metal. A new furnace has bean lately erected in this county, by Wm. L. Alexander, ?sq\, which has been blowing for some nme past, with entire success. Two new furnaces ure about to be erected near Covington, in the same county?the one by Hazekiah T. Jordan & Co., the other by James G. Hamilton?both of which will be in blast during the next year. In Itockbridge county, the Bath Iron Works establishment has been purchased by. Samuel Shorrerd, an enterprising Pennsylyanian, and has been successfully operated by him for eight or nine months past. The furnace belonging to Matthew Bryan has also been in successful operation under his management for several years past, and will continue under tlie manage- I inent and control ot mat experienced and enterprising gentlem tn,and doubtless as successfully in future as hereto.ore. A new furnace is now in progress of erection on the South river, in Rockbridge, under the direction of the industrious and enterprising owners, Samuel' F. and Benjamin J. Jordan.? This will doubtless be one of the most extensive and valuable improvements of the kind in this portion of the State. The furnace will be in bhst by the first of May next, as I atn informed, and, under the management of these experienced and judicious gentlemen, must do well. It is more than probable a new furnace will he erected near the Alum springs, in Rockbridge, during the next year. The ore is abundant, and in all respects the location is very desirable. The old furnace of Montgomery & Erwin, in the county of Augusta, bus recently been purchased by Isaac Bryan & Co., of Rockbridge, and will be refitted immediately and put in opermon l ties- tacts snow tnat me tarni 01 181li lias operated beneficially upon the manufacturing business and interests of the nation. All things seem to have worked together for gc ;d. Incidents at tenpins the Explosion op the A.N. Johnson.?We continue to receive heartrendlng accounts of the somes witnessed oa board this doomed vessel, and on shore, after the surviving passengers bad landed. The Cincinnati Commercial says : ? Tha explosion blew away the boilers, leaving the furnaces and Bra partly exposed, and uiuob of the eabln fell iu. losseugere, when tbey opened their state room door, rushed to wh-re the cabin had been sunk, amidst the Barnes, which bad seised on the fallen timbers of the cabin. Mr. 8 S. Sanders, of thia| city, who was, on account of the crowded state of the cabin, lying on the B"'.r of the scolal hall at the time of the eiploslon. fell with the oabln on the deck; in the fbll the timbers of the oabln fell on bis legs, wbloh prevented him from rising or doing anything. The boat took Are, which was momentarily approaoblng him; and while lying In this nonunion ne iiw several pensn in ia?Dftu?p, mmr nsaas extended for aid. and (bricking with agony and despair; bat thare were none to help them. As the lire approached. the horses, tied on the ioreoasile, became wild with nffright, and commenced kicking, rearing, and plunging. In tnls wild excitement the timbers which held Mr. Sanders were so removed as to liberate him, when he rose, and approached the tide of the boat next to the itream, and seeing the river foil of ice, caught up a wet blanket, threw It around himself, and rushed through ihe flames to the opposite side, and made his escape to the shore, wbioh was overlooked by a high and perpendicular bank After walking some distanoe along shore, he reaehed a place where he gained the summit, and seeing a bouse, he proceeded to it. When he got In, he was tfoiog to throw himself upon the bed. but was prevented, by the woman of the house. Immedla'ely Dr. OiUespin came in, and attempted to throw himself on the bed. bat was prevented also. He sunk on the floor almost lifeless, end expired soon after being taken to Maysville. The frightful appearance of Mr. Senders and Dr. Gilllsple so ..termed the woman that she hardly knew what she was doing, and there were two ohilrden in the bed. As soon i?s her senses rallied, she removed the children, made up ;t good fire, and contributed to the extent of her power to the relief of the sufferers brought there. The seene of heart-rending agony oo board the boat wee Indescribable There were the dead and dying?the shrieks of oien aa they sank into the flames to rlee no more?the wild fright of thn horses?all conspired to render the scene beyond the power of language to depict; bat the agony ot those who perished Instantly by the explosion, sunk Into thn flames and were thrown Into the water to rise no more, were short, and their fate we oonld almost say preferable to some who surrlTed?their flesh burat to a coal and pealing from tbelr bonne In the miest of suffering the most acute that the human frame ean coders, men In the depth of their agony were begging to be shot, calling for axes and other Instruments by whioh ihey might end their sufferin s.
