Ha was hare rsoelved by tb. citissns ot (Sew Albany, and be great number* ftt m 'be surrounding country, with the warmest maoi .Ntationa A regard and admlratlan. Major Thornton oti behalf of New Albany, welcomed blaa to th# airy iii a brief and cordial aadreae, to whleh General 1 ayior replied In a speech of flee minutes, wall timed 1 and to tb* purpose He said that, ameng the services it bad lieen hi* fortune to render to hta oountry, the ftr.i bad bean rendered upon the toil of Indiana.In the Indian waft, and that be received with peoullar pleasure the welcome and congratulation* or the cltiiena oi that State. From the landing, the hero waa conducted, amid the shout* of the multitude, to the hotel, where he shook the hand* of groat number* of both teres, reoeivln* their welcomes and congratulation* with an ease, heartiness, and tact, which won ovarybody To a lady who came to apeak ta htm, avooopani.d by two ebildren, be said, "Art these your chUorsn ?? " No." she replied, " my ohlldren nre nt cburcb." -Ah." said tha Oaaeral, "that ia right; religion and morality go hand In band." An old far mar am se dier, who naa some lorry mile* romaot aim, ma 'a bi? way tbrtugh the crowd, and taisad him by the han<l raying, ' General. I have voted aioe times for President,. bnt never gave any vote with aa hearty good will aa tbi- vote 1 gave you. I lelt that I was voting for an bon*?t man, who would restore the anelant order of uings " " 1 belong to the old rehool " said the General, " and I win do uiy beet; bnt I fear tlmt I eannot meet the expectations of the people." ? Yon have been in many t'ght places " rejoined the countryman, ' and always came oat ancceseful, and yoa'll do It again." For every one tbat approached him, the Ueneial had tome pleasant speech. Kaily yesterday morning, General Taylor aad his patty came from Nathvlile. The day wa* like spring, and the feces of the dense, dark mass on the shore gleamed like tnirrore in the eunllght. A broad alley was formed in the crowd by the marshals, from the shore to the upper edge of Water etieat. The General app?ar? d upon the dtok. and a abont aeeended such as he had not heard elnoe the morning of Buena Vista. The General, with thore who had gone to meet him, peered frcm the boat np the alley in the orowd to where the Major of the city, Mr. Vance, stood to receive him. The Mayor addressed the General In the following words Si*?As the organ of the City Council of Louisville, and In behalf of my fellow.citizens here assembled, I tender yon the hospitalities of our elty, nnd offer yon n welcome to the aoil of Kentuoky. 1 know 1 speak the minimis 01 ice wnoie community. wni 1 express my deep regret tbat your engagement! will necessarily make your atay abort, and will, to aome aztant. deprive ua of tbe opportunity of assuring you, by our hospitalities, of the cordiality of tbia reception Still, 1 truat tbe terae before you will furnlab aome proof oftbeatneerity of our feeling*. Tbe Ceuncil of our eity, tbe old and young of our population, petaona of every oooupation and of every politioal creed -all have come out to nceive and salute you We feel tbat the clrcnmetanoea under which we are plaoed are of the moct interacting character, and tbat your present visit is no ordinary occurrence. Esteeming you for the virtues of your private eharaoter. gra efnl for tbe benefits of your publio services, eud filled with admiration for that disinterested patriotism wbioh has shone so consplouoasly fiom yonr youth up to tbe present time, wo could not do oth-rwte than give you a hearty welcome ; for it la with pleasure we look haok upon your past history, and bear in mind tbat yon were reared and educated in our mldct. and bad tbe maxims of virtue instilled into y our y ombf ul mind by a venerated mother, and tha prineiples ol patriotism taught you by a patriotio father, who was an illustrious example of devotion to tbe great eause ct eivli liberty and natlanal independence. When the gloom which hung over tbe eause of liberty at tbe commencement of the sroond war of independence, occasioned by the effort of a mighty govern* uant aimed to suppress tbe voice of freedom and bring under an jsctlon tbia nascent nation, aided by the wsr-eboop and realptng-knile of tbe savage tribes upon our borders, you, sir with the promptness tbat pioved your patnotirm, left tbe comforts of heme, and alth meuy a gallant youth of old Jefferson, rallied under ibe Bag ot your country, and with youthful ardor ruebed to tbe Jefence of our northern frontier. It is. air, with peoullar pleaauta tbat I recall to mind that Illustrious display or wisdom, virtue, and valor which baa ever distinguished your military command from tbe Um? you, with an inconsiderable foroe, repulsed tbe ravage fie at Kort Harrison to the close of tbe ever-memorable battle of buena Vista Sir, yon are now entering upon a new theatre of action In a few d*ys you will be required to enter upon the discharge Of lb* duties of tbe high and responsible post assigned yon by tbe suffrages of a free and grateful people, and we have every reason to oe elude tbat under your administration tbe bands that bow unite thisgloriom Union will be greatly atrengtheoed, and tbat tbe useful and ingenious arts of peace, tbe agriculture, oommer e, and manufactures of our oouutry, will be duly fo-titcd and improved, as belog far more certain sources ef wealth than tbe ilohest mines, and surer means ?t promoting tbe happiness of a people than tb? moat wars Ileal assured, you have bow, and aver w 111 hate. our best wishes for your welfare. and our prayers tbat yotr subsequent life may be as prosperous and as peaceful as tbe previous portioa of It ha* been eventful and glorious. Sue, sir, to say more would be trespassing, and I now offrr to you cordial welcome to tbe scenes of your boyhood, an J again tender you tbe hospitality of our city. To which General Taylor replied Mr Mayor The subjects wblch you hava taucbsd upon. In tbs address you have just made me, fill my mind wltn memories wbleb unfit me for tbs task of mak ag a proper reply You have alluded to tbe instructions which 1 received in youth from my venerated father, and have ascribed to the influences wrought wpon my early lite, the steadfastness which bat marked my Bub-iqueut career. I acknowledge the oompliment wiib gratitude, whilst I must deelare that a large part at tbe successes wbiob bave baen a-oribed to my abilU ties is due to tbs bravo and chivalrous soldiers, regulars, and volunteers, wh-in it was my fortune to lead in Tinting my native fitate?for although 1 was not born witbin its territory 1 feel as I was, inasmuch as my recollection* ot boyhood are all a-*eciated with the roil ol Kentucky, and etpeoially this Immediate neighbor lined- I ooulJ not but tool tne or days long gone rttiia within uie. There emotions bare been strengthened by tbe kindness of yoar address, and by | tbe entboriaani of the reception I have received from the eitisens of Lvuisvllle. Vou justly remarked that I bare been called from a service to which I bare been long attached, to dltoharge new. and, to me, untried dunes 1 cannot but distrust my abilities to answer tbe expectations tf my countrymen in so novel a character But I shall ei deavor to admini-ter tbe government upon tbe principles wbicb guided tbe earlier Presidents of the repuhl'o; and to this end I will dedicate al tbe tctrsyaod capacity I possess For tbe overwhelming kinonets of thisr? caption. I have but thanke 10 ' Ber you. It is a meagie return, but it is all I ean inske? accept from me, then for yourself and in behalf of tbe citlxens ef Louisville, my heartfelt acknowledgments tor this unexpected and generous welcome. Af'er tbe close el tbe General's reply, he took his rat In a carnage prepared for him, and wan escorted to the Gait House by a crowd that could not be numbered. For hundreds of yards the street was completely fllird wltb tbe moving throng, and all the doors and windows on both sides of tbe street ware radiant with fcitgbt and beaming countenance* 80 enthusiastic a reception was rever given to aDy man In this city. We could Lave wished, tn consideration of theOeneraCe arriving on Sunday, tbat the reception should be nf a more quiet character; but the aroused enthusiasm of the mattes wtuid have utterance.

Seeing it announced that Thomas Hger was to be brought before the County Court this morning oc a writ of habtat corpus, for the purpose of an inquiry into the cause of his detention, and, if sustained, the amount of bail required that might be named, I dropped in, with the view of turnishing the Herald a sketch of the proceedings. Before ten o'clock?the hour set for the hearing of the writ of habeas corpus in the County Courl room, before Judges l'urviance and Le Grande? an immense concourse of spectators not only filled l.n fh? rnnn. an.I lha h.lla an.l r.aaaanaa l.aW. wr ",v ,VV,H M,v ing to it, but a large crowd had assembled on the walla and in the streets in the vicinity, to obtain a glimpse of Hyer as he passed from the carriage in which he was conveyed from the jail into the court house. When he arrived he was greeted with cheets, but he moved on hastily to escape trie pressure of ihe crowd, without acknowledging the compliment; and being accompanied by a number ol officers, he soon made his way into the court house, tollowed by au immense number of persons, filling ihe hall, passage and stairway with an immovable n.sss of people. The crowd waa scarcely less excessive inside of the bar, *e every one that could obtain admission seemed to have availed h'tnaelf of the privilege?crowding up even behind the seats of the judges. Indeed, so large an attendance has never been witnessed in a court house in Haiti more before, liver took his seat beside his counsel, Z. Collins Lee, Kso , and the 11. ?

Tbe speaker then proceeded to apeak for nearly a half .hour's duration, ridiculing tbe ?flVrta made by tbe State for the arrest <f tbe parties. Mr. Riobardson replied, and sent his arguments "to tbe ropes" with much more faetlltj than Hjer put Sullivan in the Fame petition. Mr. McLane followed, tn tbe elde of Hyer. beveial witnesfea were then called. Capt. Gilford gave a lalthful account of the tamout attaok on Poel'i Island, tbe catastrophe to the steamer, the froien fingers of tbe police, tbe recape of the pertiee, and the billglrg to the city of O'Donnell and Thompson, the two trainers, wbo are still confined in jail, as the tro pb-ee ot tbe expedition.

An affidavit taken belore Justice Gray vaa also pro duced by the State, rigned by two men named Reevei and Sbay, raid to be aporttng cbaraotera, asserting tbat tbey had witnessed the light betwaat Sullivan and Hyer. at Still Toad Heights, in Kent eounty, on which, with the 01 nteaalon of Hyer to Mr. Cook, the Attorney General aaked the Court tbat he be held to bail to answer be I or u the Kent eounty oourt. An Irregular, running, and diejoioted debate war then continued about two houra longer by the counael lor Hyer.

Judga Purvianea dvlits'ed tbe dtoblon of the Court, which waa to the effect tbat tbe testimony war, sufficient to require tbe party to be held to bail, and that he would be required to give security for $3,000, for $2,000 of wh.oh bis own lecrgnltance would be taken and for tbe remaining $1 000 two good eecurities In tbe sum of $500 each would be required.

Ihe house ot Mr Jonathan Miller, about two kiiIcb weal ol this Village, was entirely ? estroied by liie between tour mid live o'clock on last Thursday morning, and, shocking to relate, Mseiiine family, consisting of his wile, a daughter ol about l(i, and two tons of about s and 12 j < ars of age, were consumed in the flamea. The spectacle which presented itseli alter the lire was t uly aw till, and ran nu'y be realized by those who rnw it, or may have witm ssed a similar e.?ne.? From the position in which ihe bodies were found, i nd portions ol the bed on which they slept, it apifmtd that ihey liad occupied dillereiit rooms, as it would tenii they had not lieen aroased from their sleep; jierhapa they were strangled by the en oke before they nwukr or became conscious at danger How the fire originated is involved in mystery. Fiom a conversation had wit Mr. Miller, we lenrn that he left home about threp o'clock in ilie mo tin t' tor Nl w ^ oik, with a load of hay. lie lelt a small fire in the kiichen, which is eituated on the east end ot the house, and this b 'iur? the only tire there was ab< ut the premises, and lelt as he believes in a ssle condition, does not the fire could possibly have originated from it. The opinion formed by those- who were first at tlo* scene ot desti notion is ihai the fire Marb-ri in the centre of the house, as the entiy way and walls oa each side were entirely consumi d, and the tire was emending esch way from the centre. The t-1 .or of ihe upper room, in the west part ol the house wuere the lunily elvpt, had ihen fuben down, a portion of the root end wan standing, which evidently showed thht the lire commenced in the lower part ol the house. Mrs. Miller occupied the Iroot roo n, the two sons slept immediately adjoining, and the daughter in the buck room. And what appears moie strange than all else to Mr. Millvris, that the axe winch he invariably kept standing in the shed at ihe east end of the house, except when in U9?, was found lying in the turns near the west end. The whole atlm is involved in mystery and doubt. The remains of the uutortunate victims have been placed in twocoflins. and the funeral services will take place at Mr. Demon's, Trimming JSquare, at 11 o'clock this morning. Domestic mnr< ileny.
