Iu New York one excitement follows another as'.wave Succeeds v>*vc, and yesterday the Ureal Easterners took their departure from our city to make w ay for the Great Eastern excilemeut. They loft in good time, before p ihlie curiosity in regard to them was perfectly sated, and before our city began to weary of its Oriental guest*, and trc may congratulate ourselves that nothing has happened during their stay here to cause unpleasant reminiscences Of their visit to obtrude themselves upon the minis of Oilher the Americans or tho Japanese. WHAT Tltxr DID ON THIIWDAT. On Thursday the Jajianeso were very busy in packing their baggage and making preparations for leaving the hotel. In the morning the lion. A. 11. Rioe M. C., from lfuaai<hiia/*ttJi. railed at the reauest of Several of the eading goatlemun of Boston, to invito tho Aml>ai*ad< >rs to pay a visit to that city and inspect tho manufactories at Lowell. Mr. Rice pledged bmui If that $100,000 should be raised for this excursion?that the Japanese should travel in special trains, and that there should be no attempt at show or parade. Captain Dupont, after consultation with the Ambassadors, replied that their Excel" Icncies were anxious to reach Japan, and would l>o obligi-d to decline this kind Invitation. S?on after Archbishop Hughes visited the Ambassadors. During the afterboon the Princes held a reception, during which many ladies were introduced by Captain Lee and Others. Duripg the day a very large number of presents, of all sorts and descriptions, were received by the Japanese, and among tho most valuable of these gifts were a fireproof safe and a large scale, adapted to both English nd Japanese weights. A WKPDINO. At noon the three principal Ambassadors attended a 1 wedding at Grace church, refusing the favorite "Tommy" j permission to accompany them. The Japanese had often Signified their wish to attend an American wedding, and i the invitation wag exteudiHl to them, not as officials, but ' US private citizens. At the hour appointed Grace church was crowded with a tliroug of uotabiliti -s iu the literary, Artistic and fashionable world. Miss Agatha Eleanor Car nana and Mr. Charles G. Yealon were lue happy fair, And certainly the Ambassadors could uut have been gratified by witnessing a more Interesting ceremony. As the Japanese walked down lh" aisle, eager w htspers could be heardou every side inquiring which was Tommy, ati l When it was discovered that tho pet w as not present the disappointment seeim-d general. The bridal ccretnouiea having been jwrformed, the blushing bride and her fluelooking husband were introduced to the Jai>anegc, who were understood to elfer their congratulation*. Tli Princes did not attend the reception at the happy pair's residence in Thirty ninth strict, but were immediately driven bark to the hotel, and Temmy took their place in the carriage and drove off to visit tie* bride. His re CepUoo by tho ladles preaeut was most enthusiastic. Ho was overwhelmed with presents, bouquets and kisses, and distributed hundreds of his lithograph cards. IN THK EVENING August Belmont, K~t , formally presented to each of the Princes a fine photograph or Comm idorc Terry, taken in bis usual excellent style by Urn tv, who is the only artist Whom the Ambassadors have allowed to photograph them. She Aldermen, Gounnlnvii and the Naval Commission had A farewell dinner together, but the occasion was an informal one, and no speeches wore made. Namurm, the chi-f Interpreter, and a party of the priuci|>*l officers, gave a upper, in their private rooms, to the Mr srs. Lelaod* And two or three invited guests. The dishes consisted of A Japanese rnfnt*. the constituents of whtrh are unknown, and our national representative dull? pork and beans After the substantia Is had been disputed of, .Yarn ura roar, and m tbe bappi -et manner proposed th<bealth of the Messrs.

The regret at parting seemed mutual, for many of the Japanese could Rot restrain their tears, and Toma y, especially, seemed overcome with grief. YSHTKRDAY MOKNIRO was clear and sunshiny, sod at aa early hoar the Metropolitan was thronged with persons wishing to say goodDye to the Japanese. The M twevU* pwduna were packed away, and by eleven o'clock the Japanese soldiers and servants were ready to leave, and were placed In carriages and driven to the ltatlery, whence they were oooveyed to the Niagara in the Hun trees. The tag wac almost overladen with the immense pile of haggage belonging to the Ja|*ne*o, and consisting mostly o.' prostata. Soon the crowd began to collect about the hotel, and visiter after visiter went up sUira to try to sec Tommy. TBI rROCMfttON. At oof o'clock the atresia oear the hotel were packed with people, and in about half an hour the Seventy Urst regiment, parading about three hundred men, under command of Col Vosburgb. tnarched ilowu Broadway Id act as a special escort an J wuaid of honor to the Ambassadors. After various ma tnruvres, and an exercise, flnely |<erft>rmed, to the drill I manual, the rrgimeul was d.awn up in tin# auJ presented arms, and amid the cheers of the siHrtalor* and the inspiriting music of the hand the Ambassador* left the hotel, atxt, in company with the officers of the Naval Cnmmu-Mon, and the numbers of the Comnma Council, entered tle-ir carnages Carriage* wire proTided for the rc|?irter? and invited guest*, and the treaty boa, guarded by Tommy, wa* pleood u|*m a platform de.

I After a brief Hay the visiter* took leave of the Japanese and returned to lite Hunt teas, which was to oouvey ( them to the city, the Harriet Lane dropping anchor in the stream. Many of the Jujianese were affected to tears, and ' Tommy ran away from the visiters and bid himself in one of the cabins, unable to endure the pain of a formal i leave taking He expressed bis desire to remain in this I country, und promised certaiily to return in a year or two. Indeed, all of tho Japanese j seemed to comfort the mselves by saying that they would come to New York again, or their friends would come to Jeddo by and by. Many exchanges of present* w ere made, and until tiie actual seliuration occurred uoue knew how much the Ju|iam bp valued their American friends, or how great a hold these du.-ky Orientals had taken upon the J ailertions of those brought into daily contact with them. v ll.o Niagara und tho Harriet Lauo thundered their salutes, ' and the Jaianese and their hosts parted coiu|>any, tlie party on hoard the Huntress cheering repeatedly, and the . crew of the steamship manning the rigging and returning cheer fur cheer. The tug reached, the city at about We% en o'clock last evening, ami the comisuiy were des ' latched in carriages to their respective homes. AT THE METROPOLITAN t affairs begin to assume their former routine. The rooms 1 occupied by the Japanese have becu cleanod and put in ( order, the Ja|ianeae flag lias been hauled down, and the Japanese Hotel is once more transformed Into the well i knowu Metro|iolttan. To all of the brothers Leland, and 1 llieir attache*, our reporter is iudebted for a thousaud 1 courtesies and kindnesses, and all those who have been obliged to frequent the hotel during the stay of the Orientals add their thanks to those of the Japanese, so often reported In these columns. Every arrangement at the hotel has becu most admirable, and in no case baa any fault liecn found, either with the arrangements or the proprietors. To Messrs. Nixou and Christy, New York Is Indebted for their kindness In allowing the Japanese to visit their saloons nt pleasure, thus much enhancing the enjoyment of the city's guests. The pohco arrangements, under Sergeants Mount and Crop fccy, have been complete ami satisfactory The duties of the police have boon most arduous and embarrassing, but have been s? well performed as to elicit no word of blame The conduct of tbe Committee of Arraugemenl* and .cl*cial C< nimittee lias been above all praise, and contrary to tlie usual practice, in such cases made and provided, there lias beeu no riotous or disorderly conduct on the |*irt of Abler men or Comraou Councilmen, or any disregard of our guests' WMl or MjMlew. Ou the contrary . ucder the supervision of Mr. Warren Leland and the Naval Commission, every arrangement has been ad mlnibly made and as admirably carried out by the com mil tee, who ccrtattiiy deserve great credit for being so extraordinarily and tuieijiecledly respectable, geutlcnianly and obliging. New York Aldermen never wore so many Ik.uors and we h<>j>e that they tuay always wear them as deservedly. At one o'clock to-day the Niagara weighs anchor and sets sail for Jajan. New York wishes her a pleasant voyage, and the Japaiu -o a safe return to their friends at home am', many not distasteful recollections of their visit to America. Thus we pait w ith the tlr>t .fu]>aiie.?e Kmtiassy to America; but we may exjiect another ere loug, and will MltlM w elcoilie them as heartily.

Tho political affiurs at I the republic are quiet. There has boon aomc lit lie dis- I turbance, however, on the south aide of the uland, near I tin Hayti.u line, since I last wrote, growing out of the I intercourse of the Ilaytiens with the Dominicans, la I which certain of the latter wore charge 1 by the aulhoci I lit* at St. Domingo City w ith an infraction of the treaty I recently negotiatrd between the two republics. Parties a I of tome note and influer.co were engaged in the cootru jft I bund transact ions, and attempted a revolutionary organi*- J tion, but were promptly arrested by the authorities sue C carried to St. Domingo City. Some of the governmon* I officials were iiirolred in the attempted insurrection, and I tome generals and other officers w ere among the prsiaa 1 H era. The Haj tlcns have thus far strictly observed tho stipulations of the treaty, arc well dis|?oaed toward the I)omintcanr, and appear auxious to carry out the treaty la good faith. By an official decree last winter, you will recollect that the goveruwent laid a tax ot titty cents par Ion on all foreign bottoms enteriug these ports, exoept those cleared lrom and belong lug to Paw-era with which Dominica has irenties. As the l/ntted States has no treaty with Domiuica this tax was of courae collected of Ml \ easels trading here from the ports of the Unitod States. | rue jovfruBwni uu rroeuu/ iak.ro uu or racaieu mm decree as to the Intted States, and her mints are now placed od aa equality with those of England, BoUmd, Denmark, France and Spain, with all which Powsvl. Iiuintmica has treaties. This measure may favorably gT left your trade with the Island. ? A strong effort is now being made by same gentleman InKt. Doming* city, among whom are General Caaueau and Colonel Fabian, to induce an emigration from the States to the south aide of the island and to the region round about the . Bay of Simons. It wan through the influence and efibrta 06 these gentlemen that the government was induced to remit the tounage duty aforesaid. As I have often stated In my former let- tcrs, the impression is every day gaining ground here that emigration from the States is the only thing that * will ever reclaim this island from its present lethargy and waste. On the north side of the Id.rod some palpable demon*trations of emigration and settlement are also boiug made. A Mr. J. I). Harris, quite an Intelligent and enterprising slightly colored gentleman, formerly of Cleveland, Ohio, and the duly authorized agent of some twentyfit e families of said Slate, recently arrived here, intending to select a location and make arrangements for planting a colony, kc. His friend and patron Is Mr. Pastorizs, of the firm of Pusionza k Collins, merchants of thin place. Mr. 1'. is a person of much wealth and infiuenoe on the horth side of the island, and owns one of the most lovely tracts of country on the north. It lies about' thirty miles w ret of fort au Platte, in the direction Of Monte (hristi, running uorth to the sea, and includes one of the finest harbors ou the coast?Porto Cabeilo. Tha site for a city at this point is not suriioswd by any on the island, and tbilhcr the colonists propose to emigrate and t settle. The place is healthy, tho soil productive beyond parallel md well adapted to the culture of tobacco, coffee and sugar The currency is in a better condition than it has l> for some tune. Pupalettes are now exchanged for go! government rates, and are received in jinrt at the CusV House for custom dues, whereas formerly all du. s wi* . required to be paid in specie. The rainy season is now over. We have had less rata ^ than usual,and the crops,especially the tobacco crop, loots' badly. 1 question if there will be one fourth of a crop.' In addition to the |*rtial failure of the tobacco crop, no leva a loss and miyfortusc is the (allure of the nudiogany cutters and trailers to get their stock to marlflun coa-^a ' Sequence cf the streams not rising high euo'igMo float it down to the porta and the sea. This w ill prove a serious** disaster to the trade, aa vast quantities hare been cut. We have no definite and reliable intelligence from tha mining companies now far In the mountains in the Interior, whence it is almost aa difficult to hear as froaa New York. Trade was never more dull here than at present: money exceedingly scarce. No American vessel in port but the John Butler. Rsvsl IntelligenceOCA PORTSMOUTH (K. H.) fOKKIiSIONDKNCB.

The practice ship Plymouth having been found uasuited for the per* poee of a nchoolthlp, being much too small, the Old free* sides will be commissioned, and when ready will proceed ' to Annapolis, and on arrival there take on board the cadets from the Naval Academy at that city. The aelecion of this frigate at a schouishlp cannot but be ploatlag to all Interested in ntval aflhlrs and the future welfare of this braacb of the public service. A ship of noble proportions, good length and adequate beam, she will prove herself to be admirably adapted for that use. Her dacha, being lofty and roomy, will afford amplo space for the v?- i rious exercises of the nautical pupils, allowing them a flair scope for the pursuit of their practical studies. She will be supplied with a battery of the moot totproved description, and her entire equipment will be such aa to present aline opportunity for the ambitious youths to tit themselves to walk in the stepa of their illustrious predecessors tn navel glory. These. combined with the many remtniaceucee attached to the " bald Constitution," which during her present cruise cannot fail In present themselves to tne minds of the cadets, wiU tend to arouse the naval aspirants to emulate the naval banes who, In days gone by, trod her docks, loading our hosts to honored death or glorious victory, and will teach them that Honor aad fame from no condition rise, K?? tn Act well tbrlr part, thorc All the credit ll?a.
