A Holiday Among Our Citizens. LAUNCH OF THE STEAMSHIP CUBA. DESCRIPTION OF THE ADRIATIC. The Sftrifs in the Shipyard and 01 the East liver. Speeches of Rct. In Chapli, Br* K. L Col Uas, Dr. T. B. StlHauus, and When, Aa, Ao., to. The new steamship Adriatic, tor the boil ins line, wu launched yesterday morning from the shipyard at the loot of Sere nth street. For aeveral weeks p*st this event bad been antici paled with no ordinary feeiingi of inter eft by the whole city. The (aet that she Is not only the largest vewiel ever built In this oountry. bat that the i? dtblgned to be the tastost ooean steamer in the world, at tracted towaid* her more Attention anl cariosity than bas, perhaps, ever bean exhibited towards any other ship launohed at this port. Ma the day on which her keel w*a laid to the moment she left the stocls, she has beea the object of the sharpest criticism, and also of the mojt ui. bounded praise. Tnere were some who were ready to | find lhalt with her, bat the majority screed that she was i unequalled In the boauiy and exquisi e symmetry of her | pioportions. She was visited by thousands daily long before the day of the launch was announced, and when the long expected morning of that day arrived tens of thousands of eager t pec ta lorn assembled from all parte of the city, at the designated p'ace. It was, in fact, a holiday in that part of the ctty, and everybody appeared in their holiday dresses. Far at least th'oe hours before the appointed time, the spectators began to arrive, and in less than two hours the spaoious ship yard was crowded. The immense piles of timber swarmed with men, women and children. All the house tops whlob affoided a view of the launch, were in the same condition; the masts aad the rigging of the shipping were completely taken possession ot, the deck of the new ship, the Intrepid, whioh is on the stocks in an adjoin ing yard, presented a throng so dense that it was almost impossible to move through it; and there was, bseldes all this, a Urge number on board the Adriatic herself. Bat this was not alL The river was nearly as populous as the land. About a dozen steamboats of various sizes, and a numerous fleet of row boats, each with as many person! as It could carry with safety, lay out in the river fronting the yard from which the launch was to take plaoe. The bark grape shot, which was lyicg in the dock near the Adriatic, was captured by a croud of at least fifteen hundred persons, and held without opposition for two or three hours. The St. Louis was alao made a prize of by a still larger force, and those who could not flni standing room on her deck, or a p'ace in her rigging, as a last resort betook them selves to the inside of the wheels, glad to get evan a glimpse of the spectacle. There they sat, on the huge pacdies, only a potticn of their persons vfstbie through the bars, and crasklng jokes with those outside who were less fortunate in procuring agoed position. The epfO'.v tors have, altogether, been estimated at from fifty to a hundred thousand, and we think we do not over estimate the number when we oompute it at sixty thousand. Invitations were sent to a large number of persons, including the members of the press, for whom the steam boat Gerard Stuyvesant and two other steamboats were engaged. These, after receiving their company on board at the Novelty Works, at the foot of Hjuaton aai other streets, prooeeded into the middle of the rl-re?, where all bad an unobstructed vie* of the launoh. While all eyes were eagerly bent on the magniSoent structure, the architect, of whose genius she is one of the nut beau tiful creations, and who, tight or ten years ago was a poor, struggling, unnotioed mechanio? George Steers ? the now world renowned yacht aod shipbuilders, was busy among his workmen, superintending the prepara tions. This was the crowning moment of all his previous efforts, and although his heart must have Mt oiled with a just, a manly pride, at the noble vessel before him, and the fee ing that It was the work of his skill and genius that had attracted that almost countless crowd of human beings together, there was cothlog in his manner by whloh he eould be dUtia gnished from those by whom he was surrounded, if ws except that modest bearing which is the oharaoteristlc of true genius and merit. While waiting for the launch of the Adriatic, the sp?c tators were treated to another, which to the great maj >r ity was entirely unexpected, but whioh was, therefore, no lessasurprlse, and a pleasing one. Without the least noilae or warning, except that given by the excitement among a portion of the crowd, the Cuba, which was built in tae yard ef Mr Webb, was observed slidiat from the stocks, snd In a few moments more waa making her way out inu> the middle of the river, where she was brought to by her anchors. The Cuba la about 1,000 tons burthen, and is intended by her owner, Mr. B. Blanco, for the South American trade. Before launching the Adriatic, tt vu considered dnvh . Miry to remove the ;Grapeshot and the St LouU, wbiih l/.y along Hide the piers tnat extend out on eaeti side of the shipyard. Thin, however, took but a few minaret, end by eleved o'clock she had a clear and un>bstruo:ei way before htr oat into the river. Soon after the w rrk men, who looked like bo many pigmies beside the gigan tic hull, cemmenoed splitting up the bhofcs which afford ed her a partial support, and the removal of whtca was necessary to let her down upon her ways. This war* was som performed ? the last block was re morel, a silence like that of the grave held the vast multitude breathless: the huge and inanimate bat graceful struc ture appeared at the moment as if instinct with life, moving slowly at first, bat with in creased speed as she toashod the water she swept oat into the river with a grace aad t mtje<iy of motion that we have ner*r seen equalled at any launch. Nothing oould exoeed the enthusiasm wi n which she was greeted; cheer after ctteer burst from the joyous crowd ; every man, woman and chill ther? felt- as if be had a direct interest in ner succeis, and conld not have been more pleased if ttey we-e to h-.vs a share in the profit* of her. The ladles waved their hand kerchief* and the men threw ui tneir hats for joy. ''Who talcs of failure after th?t?" satd one man, in the exibs ranee of his fceilrg. ?' 1 tell yon, she il take erc-yt.oing down that floats," he added, with an air of tritmpi; and it is almost neeiiles* to say that every one within hear ing agreed with him. But the Adriatic is now half way across the river, and there appears to be no diminuttcn in her speed. Her sta'boan! anchor was let go, but It presented ao percepil blo resistance to her progress She was now rapidly nearing Williamsburg, wtien the laibnarl anch >r was dropped, but cot in time to prevent her strikirg one or the piers. Hardly a minute eiapned, after the mmd1 anchor touched tbe wate<-, before she struck th? pier, running into It four or five 'set, and ksockiog tte lia beri into rpllntars. The only damagu done, However, nas to tbe pier, the stern ha?ing esc?ped uninjured, wi h the exception of a tew scratches to the copper nheathing. The shock produeoOy her coming in oi ntact with toe pier was so light, tha: It was nardly felt by those on board. Scon af or tbe steamtug Titan was alongside, ready to tow her to the Balance Dry Dock, on whisu she is to be coppered. The Adriatic does not ap]>oar to bs ho large aa she really is. bat this is attributable to the Uaitleesness ol her model, aad the perfect symmetry of all her p?rw. Naval architects and nan ti sal men are in raptures with the beauty of her lines, and pred'et that sue wtll be without an equal in point of speed. She is, as we have said, the largest steanship ev<-r built in this eoun ry, and is at present the largest vessel constructed of wood in the world. The Persia 1* loiger, bat it will be renumbered that she is an iron steamer. The Adriatic is 364 feet in length, 60 ieet breadth of beam, 33 feet 2 inches depth of hold, and registers ft, 896 tons Custom llouee measurement. She is to have two osclila log en (fines, of two thousand actual horse power e?3h; 100 Inch cylinders, with 12 feet stroke. She will have sight tabu lar boilers, low pressure, and about 39 powndt te the square inch. She will also have eight water tigh : com partmenta; these are to be contracted of solid oak planks, three ieohee thick, placed diagonally against each other, with layers of pitch and feK between them, ma klrg a total thickness of six inches. an<l shored in the most substantial manner. She Is to M brig r urged, and, like tbe other steamers of th? Collins lino, Is without a bowsprit. Her anchors wstgti 7,004) pounds each. The machinery, a considerable portico cf wbieh Is al ready flelehed, will be made by H illman Jk Alum, at the Novelty Works, end will be all pat up in foot months, so i that the ttrst trial trip will take pUee about the begin ring of August next Wfc en oamcleted ard tt%4jr tor eea, the Adi iatio will hart c>it aftoni 91(0,000.

I congratulate oar distin guished merchant and eminently patriotic citizen, Mr. t'oiilns, upon this (to him) equally important oooaiiien. May he also not be forgot'en by those tor whose pros perity and good be has done se maoh. Indeed, I con g; at ulate not only New York, but the whole country, upon this launch? for it u the Uniteo States, as a uation, that has the most oause for eoi^(ratuJ*Uon in the tfrth of another steamship, whioh has not. and, in my opinio?, cannot have, an equal in any part at tnejwoild. (Ohe*rs ) It is oonmerce that has ma e as what we are, nod it is to commerce we most look to maintain the supremacy we possess: and, as we exeel In the means by whioh con meroe is camel on, so we ate still farther acvanoed in it* exte orion and profit.

In coEolomcn, tho Mayor proponed the health of Mr. Collins, which was diank with thiee times three. When silence was tee'oied, Mr. Couj.mh responded as follows It is entirely out of my line to deliver a speech; but as my friend, the Mayor, has been kite enough to say tfrnt this enterprise i? n it merely a pecnmaiy or.e, but anenxerpitse caliula ed to benefit the country , I take tLii opportunity of le.ting the gettlenen prfsent know of the great difficulties we have met in tte acoonip.Lmnient of the woik, the parti*! son pie t Ion of -?bloh you his day witnessed. In tho first place, lei me say, wfcen it wa? prooosed to build this line of steamers, the Curat d ilne wa> regarded as the first ia ihe world. We bad great obst teles to sunn met. among which was the want cf sufficient iemon era 'ion, and I meat here state taat although the line bears the uame o Collin i, had it not been for Mr. Brown, who, I regret, is not now present, the world woaid rcer nave seen the Collins line of steamers. There are very tew men who have bad the mi ana at their command, and if tn?j have bed the means, they are s ill fewer who possess the patriotism neseesary to carry oat uo great an enterprise ?one in which the oharao'-er of the country Is so deeply Inteiee ed, aid to a great extent icvnvei as a o imoier oal power. You are all aware that there are two lines, which are known by tbe burnt* of the Law line and the Asplnwail lit e. The first of these had to build twj ships, at a cost of eight huccred thousand dollars, and the mo nd the same number, at a coat of six ha icred thousand. Mr. Law and Mr. Aapinwall ooth petiti med Congress f ,r aid; and Mr. Mas n, ttho was then dscreta y ol the Navy. said, if any icocey was to be granted to tboee sU"rLers, ltshouki fi st he giv-ti to the Collins line. Mr. A>plnwall had ?kh elated wl'h him many mlilioaaires of New Yotk, and notwitastanoing the means in ihrir pos tnticn, they could not build three steamers unless money was advanoed by the govern ment. In tn? case of our steamers, however, Mr. Broun, alone, turnlshta not lees than two millions ?{ coilaje. (Great a-jpiauae.) Now, there has been a little rewspeper controve sy? which I regretted to see Uapta n Nje ecgeged ie? in le'at'cn to our friend Mr. Brown. Wi'h regard to Cap a!n (tye, I will say that he ie a ve-y ftlicient man, ana ae abie a commander as sailed under the American lla*. But a remark which ?a? male by btm Huggfdts the idra 'bat Knglisb capita lit ts have In vented a porben of t etr money in th?ee ships. Ia re speot to that I wt:i annpir say tbat not a r'oliar of the capital invested io thf>m is owned by English merohan s. Mr. Brown is a natu.a ized citzen, and oas been for fifty tears, and there is not a Brown Interested in them who u cot a citizen of hi* country.

Every natUn his acknowledged what we have acne, and 1 am sorry to say that the only opposition we have met haa been from home.

VIEW FROM THE DECK OP THE STEAMER ACUOUNT BY ANOI'IIBU BKCORTBK. *?? fcrmnite enough to partlo<pate (a tlie ex citement as well M the (.leasuie of the laanch, by SC cotrpanying the msgmflcent Teasel from her lot g resting ; place upon tea stocks to her place la the bo?om of the J water, which is to be the scene of her future fame md I usefulness, and we believe if her future triumph* over all that hM before been accomplished in navai arohi | tectut*. On ai rivicg at the foot of Seventh street, at nine o'olcck yesterday morning, we found the ecaffoldng en - tirely cleared away , with the exception of ths small num . ter of poles amidships on the starboard side, neceiai jr to support the s airs for asoendiag to the top. Tae n ble veeeel? these being removed? eto.d revealed la all her fair proportions? the moat m'gMy af all the crea tions in naval architecture with which America has been tor years Ceiightlag the world and eollpalng all other nations. The ftrat sensation In looking at the Adriatic from under her forefoot waa one of tn'cnse surprise at her extreme keenness forward, and a feellu? ot incredulity as to the prospect of a vessel so high ano ho lean having any Una of bearing in the water. IcdeoO, the wedge like keenness cf the veaael extends back far thirty to fifty feet, so tbat for all that distance, there t senna, in looking from below, to be acarcelr any devla ion from a straight line In the shape of her water line. Beyond tbat pciat, however, the vessel widens vary ra pidly above and below, ('.hough without losing any por tion cf her symme tj,) so that, as jeu are opp ?i e her waist, y in perceive that ahe has what is called a long floor, very little dead rise auddahips, and the most om plete and substantial bearing imaginable, giving a iu ranee of immense burthen, and great steadiness In a heavy sea. Walkixg aft you find the same extreme keenness, indi eating a beautiful leaving of the water? a p jint cf vry much importance In the eecuriog of great speed . The bew la almost upright? after the manner cf ell the Col R?s veaeels? haa a fine round away of the cutwater to f form the keel, and at tlie top carls over graeefally for a foot or two, with a email and graceful scroll at the ex tremity, and a rail and graceful gUtaide scrolls, with a barred shield centre. Ac the stern|the vessel is beauti fully rounded, ai.d has a small spread gilded eagle, wita a double toroll depending, upon which in ornamental gilt Utters appear the words " Adiinio" and "Mew York." The bo' torn cf the vessel, to her water line, is the na tural color of the wood; above her water line she 1 putnted lead color. Some idaa of her immense he'gnt? apart from what feet and lnchea could furnish? may be gathered frcm the fact that there are fifty-two widtas of plank to the waiee, eight on the walea, and eight above? six<y' eight in ai. fler guard and wheel frame* are all perfect, and present a great appearance of durability as well as of neatcesa. Aasendisg the side of the veaeei to the toe wa found tome fifteen or twenty pera *ns on board, which number waa gradually augmented, up to the time of removing I the soaflolditg, on til there were, probably, ^Wo-hundred | perxas oa b aid. th*?eakasaM?ssMateww??asapl?tsv . wi.h the exeeotion of the covering of the akyligkt and the oelep deck, the former of whlsn waa tacked over with boards, and the latter an entirely ut covered frame. I.ookJiig over the aide of the vessel aome aixty feet from the ground, the view was very fine, expending to a very gocd iistanoe up and down tha river, and giving a fine op portunity for observing the immense crowds of people who were hut) log from every quarter to witness the in-erect ing cccailon, and the fleet of boats, of every description, that with flag* and streamers as if for a festal day, were putting out into the river from various dlrec 1 >ns. The U, 8. steamer Ohio lay at the lower aide of the Seventh atreet pier, the U. 8. ateamer St. Louis on the lower a'de of tue Sixth street pier, and the clipper bark Ore pee hot on the upper aide of the Seventh. Ia the atream we notloed the Rip Van Wink.e, Ravens wood, Deer Titan, Hector, C. P. Smith and other s teamen, and a perfect fleet of ferry boats. Before ten o'clock, at which time the scaffolding was removed, tho entire yard of tha Messrs. Steers, the docks in the neighborhood, the tops of the hoases, the whejl hcuiee and decas of every veaael within sight, the yards and masts of the same, the crosa of the boom derrick Eighth street, every ridge pole and vantage ground of eveiy eliape, were entirely oovertd with human beings ? probably nunb-riirg sixty thousand persons? in a great state ot felicitation and excitement. Before the time of launching, the Grapeshot was moved to the lower siJe or tha Kighth a'.reet pier, when she was immediately hoarded by the crowd, and almost sunk by the immense number. The St. Louis was also dropped passed the end m tbat pier, no as to leave the slip entirely clear, At atou< ten o'ciook there wai a shout, and from the taro at the toot ot Sixth atreet, a beautiful ateamer. the Cnba, tor the Southern trade, was seen to glide off the stocks by those on the deck of the Adnatij, and moving off up stream, waa taken in tow by two tugs and broughc beck. Her launch was beautiful and snccessfal. By eleven o'clock the < xcltement on the deck of the Adriatic was int?nae. Every one was listening with great arxiety to the measured strokes of the hammers and eledgea below, inoicatlog tbat every moment the levia than might be expected to move, and to make a plange towards her future home in the water. Tben some began to speculate upon the chanees of the rolling over and criihLlag a few thousands, including those upon ber deck; and then they reflected that George Steers was not in the habit of doing things in that sjrt of way. and clambered to the top of the umbers of the orlop deck, so as to have the fullest view possible. Eleven o'clock.? There is a fleet of small boats at the mouth of the slip, and the steamers are all ranged In a line below and above. " All hands, forward !" from some voice ou deck, fcvery body's watch was pulled out. We heard the first symptoms of a oheer below; the boats moved hastllv out ot tha wsy; alow and steadily came the measured strokes. Bark ! a deafening cheer bursts from the fifty thousand throats. What are they hurrahing for ? Ah ! a sllgnt tremble, and you fe-l hat you are moving. Faster and faster, a moment's jar and tremble, a shout from every *hioat on cet k and oa ahore, and she leaves the ways. Gracefully she tips her stern in the water, follows the impetus a moment on the seme line, and as she has cleared the ways en Ire. the stern rises, the b"wa dip gracefully witn the recoil, a fleet of small boats are around you, the river is thick with limber and corks ? tne launch is accon pilslied most successfully! A gun, and than ano ther bec ms from the St. I onic. every steamboat bell sa lutes, ana you move on across the river. Wai there ever a sensation, elsewhere oa earth, e<iual :o the bouncing buoy and motion of the preud vessel, a< ?he first rot s dark to her leval r Have we any memory so prcud as having been launched in the Adriati if No I The Impetus of the Urge vessel was very great, and she moved ac-oss the river with full ferry boa', spaed.
