The Groat Eastern ?u announced to leave Now York for C*pe May at three o'clock yesterday aftern >on, but from Rome cause ube did not depart from her anchorage until half pact four o'clock. The scene on the river, in the harbor, down the Bay, through the Narrows,over the bar and oat to sea was very tine and cnth igias'.ic. Our reporters hare fully described what they gar of this grand aquatic exhibition. THE SCENE AT THE DOCK. CBOWD8, CRUSH AND CKINOLINK?OVKR FIV* TnOCBAND PERSONS PRESENT AT ON It TIM K?L ITT LI BOY8 AMD BJO QCW8?INCIDENTS, BTC., KTC. Almost if not quite as much excitement was mini* fasted yesterday, when the big ship left on her excursion to Cape Hay, as was shown when the monster male her rat appearance in the Hudson. All along the line of the dock at which she has been for some t me moorel, and from thence as high up as Sixteenth street, crowds of ten, women and children might have been seen gradually gathering together until they amounted at one time to over five thousand people. To all appearance the exclto ascot that has existed ever since the vessel has been in tbe vicinity of the city had sot decreased until she had worougniy uisappcareu lrum wio view ui iuo ga/er- at iue Battery, and then It seemed somew hat to subside, ai 4 wen, to allow of a small rest until 1 something new turns up." At ten o'clock yesterday morning the interest or the assembled throng seemed to be equally divided between gazing on the noble vessel, .11 she lay on the boecm of the Hudson as eisily and as stately as a swan, and in examining the remains of the poor unfortunate English sailor who had some time since fallen overboard from the Great Eastern and been drowned, and whose hody h*l been brought to the sur*oe by the motion of the screw as the ship moved away item ber dock on Sunday. About that time our attention c was drawn to the vessel by the words of a bystander, "Ob, they are getting up the steam," and, by the look of Ibe smoke stacks, there was an evident proof that they \ were making up the tires, although the steam could t scarcely be said to have as yet made its appearance. For some length of time during the morning a tugboat waa employed towing a barge to and from the lireat Eas'.ern with cargoes of ice, showing plainly that the directors of the excursion were determined, if possible, to make ttoeir visiters ' keep cool." About one o'clock the excursionists began to appear at the place of embarkation, at the foot of Hammond street. They made their " entrance upon the stage" in the ebara:ters of pedestrians, horsomen and occupants of carriages. The vehicles were of all styles, from the private close carriage and pair to the one horse b>f fry and common hack. The baggage wagon of the St. Nicholas Hotel waa several times seen, and at <w-h time heavily laden. Tae stages of the Astor House, Fifth Avenue, and, in fact, all of the hotels, brought each dow n their load of living fVeigbt to eilhor view (he departure or to go on the contemplated voyage. 0 Every one who had a wa^on unemployed seemed to have bnckled on their team'' and taken up a friend or two to see the "big ship" go away. t The Fleam boats Edmund (iriffln and the Wand Belle were busily employed from one o'clock to three in taking j tboee who had tickets fr< m the shore to the vessel. t Every the boats left tbey were overloaded, so much f o liui many 01 lue on iwncra ript-cie i esrry momen: U) ?ee tbem sink or turn over, and discharge their paasengen ia the river instead of on the tireat eastern. Some trouble was experienced by the police (of whom there were twelve on duty at the place of embarkation, under Oapta.n, of U>e Ninth precinct) to keep the people fron jumping on the boats when too full, an.I one worn iu narrowly escaped being thrown Into the water by insisting on leaping on the paddlebox after the boat ha I stvt ed Thoee who had to go t >u board the b >ats were c >m pelted to " walk the pUuk" irom the shore to the tup of the wbeclhouse, wb cb necessity m ule It rather iiafertn natr for the fkir sex, u they had to daacaad a ladder to w re*eh the main deck, and iatb?aeda*a of large hlupa, _ more aoklea were displayed tt the vulgar 2020 than wu J' intended by the ia?r owoeri when they lelt their homea in the morr.icg.

One slight accident occurod by ibo breaking of i plank on which aeveral persons wero mounted, and Aubcd the foil of many, among whom were a few La' *. (Ve are happy to etate fright waa the only darr -.g" * ? i ained. Not only were them piles so brought into or . bst also | be tope of houses and sheds, the rigging ?f all the v ; lels that were any way in vl?-w of the trreat steamer, and n fact every possible place that was a foot above nother earth. One enterprising newsboy, an* ous to se In the world, mounted to and took his *at upon the naintrnck of one of the vessels, and chcored with one land while he held on with the other. Others wcro lealed ou the crosntrees, he. I'p to two o'clock sixteen hundred tiekcts had boon fold, and they continued to h? purchased for about hvf u> hour alter that time, though no I a; so rapid a rate as n the earlier part of the day. As the places cf dis|>osal )f these tickets w<te stationed all over tho city, bo exact eturn could be obtainod at the time our report v,.u written. iui- on me imes 01 iuc ia.r arx was gre.ii xcitement and some warmth, for the day was certainly harming, and until a quarter before four Id the afternoon icnreely a ungie cloud jiaased totween Uke sun and tho arth. Umbrellas and parasols were in groat deinaniUj lieep off the rays of ' Old Sol," and the appearance of the jrowd, ""eon from any high position, boro morere?'mjlance to a lot of mushrooms in a livid?except tho difle ence in the color of the to]??than anything else. All along the Jersey shore, on Hobokon bill, and on the road that runs in front of the Sybil's Cave, large crowds jf both sexes w\re assembled to watch the departure of .be vessel, and as t took that part of the channel on its way down towards the ocoan they bad a splendid opportunity to see her noble proportions. Several steamboats, both large and small, accompanied .he Great Eastern on her trip, and as they novercl about tier they Boomed hke a number of gram pages ronnd a while. As lor thy little rowboats, they were of course lowhere, and if it wero not for the large number of them that were present tbey would scarcely hare attracted wy attention at all. One amusing incident occurred .hat caused some laughter among those assembled on the hore. Two young men were in ouo of these small row>oats, when tho Moses Taylor began (teaming up o them. One of the two, fearing tbe.r little reesel was going to bs run down and swamped, umped overboard in the water, taking an oar him to lelp to keep him afloat. As the steamor did no', pass learer to his boat than forty or Qftr yards distance, of ourse the " ducking" was the only damage el stained by ,ny of the party. The Ilendrik Hudson had a very peat crowd of pasengers on board, and as that acknowledged large vessel Msaed around our " big visiter,'' she was decidedly In the nick ground as to size, and seemed, in comparison to her, 10 bigger than a rowboat when compared to a steam tug. rrotn three to four o'clock, a continual whistling was lept up by the steam vessels that wero moving around the iroat Eastern, I' d several of them gave salutes even beore that vessel i-ver made the slightest signs of starting. At four o'clock the cry of "she's moving" caused ill who were not looking to turn their gaze In the direcion of the river, when tbey could perceive the large padile wheels slowly revolving as the vessel turned her bow lA?n t VtA Ck/. ti.,4 Kaon !?*( %/* ?ltk h?. vwu kuv i it vi .?uc uau wctu i/iu| wiui uci uunu ng "up strewn" all thc.morning, and before tho could jroceed on her voyage she had to turn round. She seemed to hay* plenty of room and moved easily? me tug "pushing at her nose,'' while another was attached by a rope at her stern, and wh engaged pulling ler round. The rope of the stern vessel appeared to snap leverai times, and at last the tirlffln pave up the task of Hauling in apparent disgust. The monster, as she turned, nad her head in the direction of Hoboken, and as she ihowed her stern to the people on the New York shore she seemed like some outrageous denizen of tho deep that iad just risen trom below, her port holes having the appearance of large goggle eyes, and the windows in the stern looking like a ferocious set of txth. At twenty five minutes after fonr the excursionists nay bo said to have made the first start in the direction >f the bay, and at thirty-flvo minutes past four she was airly under way, and nobly she steamed along, with a irowd of Btesmers of all sizes in front, a'.ongs.Jc and in he rear of her. As her gigantic paddle wheels rerolved she raised a tremendous foam; but when she b sgtu <j use her screw there must have been rather a "rau imong the little t.ehes, flr the water bid the appearance if being disturbed by a^olent storm. DETECTIVES ON BOARD. Among those who proceeded to Cape May in the Ore it '.astern yesterday were four dctective pol'.ccmen, under be command of Scrg'act Dickson. THE SCENE ALON<i WEST STREET. On the tope of houses and at the windows, on vcranlaliS above, ai.d chairs beneath, on piles of lumber and | 'igging .of ships? in fact, on everything that could bo iscd, either movable or immovable, crowds of anxi as persons could be soen watching tbe Oreat Fast am js she massed down the river. Every pier that abuttel on u.o | forth river was occupied by hundreds of persons, a- 1 i when the ve?sel had passed by the number of th? peopl i ihat began to move aloug Weet street, and Uicwe that le 1 rom it, carried the Ideas of lb" lookoron to the mosses hat leave lfc?echer's church on a Sunday. Salute* were Ired from the ocean mall steamers that were ly Eg at heir docks on both "Ides of the river, by th.iso who .ccupiod other steamboats, and by private parties on tho bore. We did not see that any of tlieso salutes were tnswered by the '-big ship," but this ' ; rom the Idea that if i<ne answered <? ?, or ' not thi others, iiienee might be Ukcu when none was ictitdel. SCENE AT T1IE BATTERY. From before two o'clock in the afternoon he crowds began to assemble on the Bat'ery d large numbers, and increased very rap.Uly. !y fonr o'clock over ten thousand persons were ?re congregated, sol up to tbe t me when tbe vessel lasaed they kept on Increasing In number*.

All those who had cot yet secured passages, tfcerefcrs, hastened U> hurry on board lb* Thomas Hunt, a very Beautiful steamer, very fortunately caiue up to tb? pier soon after. After the lapse of a little time the Tbouj^o P Way was seen running down the rifcr with ber living fre.ght huddled together aa thick as boes, and careen ing over on one side, so that the water beaten up by ber paddles waa s?nt squ through the upper part of ber paddle bosee She, however, gallantly held her way, and aa sle dashed past the other crafl, with banners and the music from ber band floating sweetly on tbo air, she was loudly and enthusiastically cheered. Such a numerous excursion of Bt?imbcat! has seldom been seen .even .n New York Bay. Besides a number I of boats whxb carried no names that could be distinticguisbed, the following steamers were all ra:ing away, crowded to the utiros', with passengers of both sexos:? The Tiger, Koyport, Huntress, Satellite, Thomas Bunt, Mayflower, Naushcn, Co'.uiribia, Island BelJe, Flushing, Delawftr", Broadway, James Watt, Hendrik T Hudson, Belle, Red Jacket, Anna, Acbi'les, Taminend, Jam' s A. Stevens and George B.rkbeck. The captains of each of these vessels entered fully into the spirit of the rport, and if tbe'.r passengers did not enjoy themselves to their heart's content they had none but themselves to blan>e. The ''at'Uite was as crowdcd as she could possibly be, and added not a little to tbc general amusement of the occas.on by the mc?ic of the splendid band wb'.ch she bad on board. She wu closely pcrsucd by the Heodrik Hudson and the Thos. P. Way, each of which contrived to m ike excellent way despite of their crowded condi- ' tioo. Nothing, however, could excel or even compete with the line steamer Thomas Hunt. She completely distanced all the rest d:r:ng the whole run. leaviotr them 1 far to the wake, and eventually, after parsing the forte, the others had to drop behind and leave tbo Thomas Hunt victoriously to keep up the elate. Tho officers of this steamer are Captain E. H. Hall?a namesake or the gallant commander of the Great Eastern?Mr. Howe, the pilot, and Mr. Ilarney. the engineor. To the exertions of these gentlemen and the untiring flfemcn, who kept up perpetual steam, may be attributod the great success of tbLB One steamboat. The scene that waa preflected on the river as those numerous vessels dashed along under the full power of steam, amid the booming of cannon from every part of the river, the delicious music of their varied bands, and the choers and ahoute of the thronging crowds on board, could scarcely be described by the pencil of a Mogartb, much less by the hasty pen of tho everyday reporter. The excitement along the river was intense in the fullest sense of that word. When the Thomas Hunt bad fkirly started from pier 20 North river, the was compelled by the entreaties of several ladies and gentlemen on shore to put back so as to allow them to got on board, and, although at some trouble, Captain Hall very kindly consented to take them up, very much to their owu ratlalaction sod that of everybody on board. The Great Eastern was all this whilo laying off ber late pier, or a little above it, with her bows turned up the river, and much time was consumed In the task of head lug her down the bay. The crowds on board of the different pleasure boats were not ovcrpleased at this detention, but as It could not be helped, they had to bear thslr disappointment with tho beet philosophy which, under the circumstances, they could command. After a slow and ted oua process the great mass began slowly to move, nrder tho power of her hugo paddles and the assistance? slight though it appeared at the time?of the steaming .Uhll'.s, which, in truth, tugged as she never tugged before. The psfsengers on board if the big fh.p, etpei'.ally 111- mal" inirt.on of tbeni.were all thR time gathered on the deck. ?n the mast*, on the wheelhouses, ai.d < n every ava.lable place that could be secured. Happily tie i nwd won ro'. overwhelm,ng. they seemed to be in the most pleasaut of hrmors, aud greatly delighted with their great steamer and the tic til la of boats that I .ad turned out with such a congregat.on of ladies and gentlemen to d'> tht-m honor. As soon as the Great Eastern began fa.rly to turn round the choer-: or thousands ascended on the bree/e. -There she goes, now,'' cried one; "How beautifully she moves," ejaculated another, while others expr-saed their a<l m'rat; on in curt and unreportablo phrases. Tb? ladies, "specially, seemed to be particularly delighted. Presently the lmmouse screw engines of the steamer were put .n mot.on, and the little tug having drawn off, the monster of the d--p puie I out big volumes of smoke from ber plant chimneys, and began her majestic mirch down the river. Those who had che? red before, now cheered again more lustily than ever. The little steamboats and sailing craft dashed lorvsard under more vigorous impulses of steam and sail: the loi d an 1 hearty strains of Imdworth'* bands cchoed from the decks ef the groat hip and reverberated along the shore: tueers from >*aim and generous hearts rent the air; the loud thunders of cannon woke up the (:Hiant e.hots of tbo slumbering woods that gird aud fringe the bav; and, in short, the s.ene becaaeone of cn thusl ism an 5 exu'Utloo such as one *?es but rarely in a lifetime On arriving ofl tht Cucard dock a tremeuJous 1 ulnts was tlre-1, mil as the (treat East"rn n<"ireJ the Bat. tery hhc adlod to Lite general r^o.dng by dipping h<'r ' Hag anil forth tbe th'indcrs 04 her guug.

But what surprised these, when at nome,good easy men, was the extortionate <<ACT*ar/4 ftf tKn la^r.d ut<(Vi nnnlint ll n rantl inot f?* r ioufely driven to catch tho boat?fjr a drive over the short mile ot road that lay between the wharf and the hill. In many lAstaccoa the dread of losing the grand sight which bad induced them to leave for a timo the dusty city behind, conquered the repugnance felt individually for these unconscionable jarveys, and stage and buss and buggy and ro. kawuy rattled along the road in a continuous string, tilled with miscellaneous parties of citizens. On, too, kept tho moving ma SB of pedestrians, sweltering from the heat, rendered many degrees more intolerable from their own hurry and Impatience, and fear of being late. At last the hill was gained from which the expectant crowds were to command a view cf the Groat Eastern, us she steamed between the batteries on either shore. And rarely, indeed, have eyes turned upon a scene more lovely than that which presented itself to >he gaze of the thousands who congregated together upon the summit of that hill. A strainer arriving l?to would Orst be struck, perhaps, with s irprise at the number which had preceded him to this favorite point of observation, and, casting his eyes around the homogeneous throng, he would, by-and-by, take in the details which made up that great whole, and,'if a reasouer, migpt easily connect the individuals of party titer party, and so to tho cause which hail Drought so many strangers to each other together, ill anxiously intent on cujoving a pleasure common to ill. Here and there were knots ol men, women and shildrw. some seated on the neatly trimmed green iward WDich borJered^lhj fort, grim with guns and their leadly missiles, piles of balls ; some standing In the shade of a grateful arbor of trees, looking anxiously towards the point where the Great Eastern bad been n.oored in the morning, while others, intent on enjoy ing the moments as th>v fle 1, wandered about as they listed along the echoing (bores or through tho shady groves, which ottered a retreat from tbe hot sun. Thus the beau tiful plateau which commands an uninterrupted view of both the nner and outer harbors, presented to the spectator from the sea one continuous line of human beings, uidu a fair compliment of tho throng was made up of ihe gentler sex, it s needless to say that tho sc?n.' was a very gay and animated one. But the view from this point looking from the high bluff down the harbor, or :>ut to sea, or over the rich and varied landscape of the Long Island shore, which spread out before the eye, was >n$ of almost matchless b?auty. grandeur and extent, towards the distant city sproad the d"ep blue waters of <ur noble bay, dancing in the warm sunlight, rolling iway In silver ripples, as If coyingly inviting the Urther and nearer approach of the graceful iraft which bounded upon their bosom, nohing loth to make further acquaintance. Far her on and nearer tne city appeared Innumerable ves ?ll, liieir wn:te sans glancing in ine sun an a an contrastid the dark shadows thrown upon the waters by tUu ine of bill* upon the Jersey shore, presenting their beau lfv.1 sharp outlines as rellected in calm waters ?ipon which they lloated. In coLtraat again to these wad the oca tortuous line ol shipping anchored at the wharves, lua beyond tbete again the tall splree an 1 steeples of the :ity blenling with their towering rivals of the city of Th arches. To the left, embosomed in luxuriant foliage l?ar?-l the white buildings of Hudson City, and further on till abruptly lost the sharp termination of tbi pallisndes upon the Hudson. To the right trbtchlng from Brooklyn,commenced ine green luxuriant plains and cultivated slopes of Long Uland, with numeral villas, whose gardens appeared si if guarded from the flood by those tat), green sent'nels winch so pictnri-squelv adorn the shores.

This moruiiiK at cight'o'clock 1 went down the bay In tho ftcamrr Neptune to meet the royal squadron, consist log or the Hero, Ariadne ana Flying Fish, which were Men skaming up in the distance. When we came abreast of the Hero, I mw the Prince In plain costume on the quarter deck. We cheered, and ho raisod his cap and bowed in response. All the batteries fired the royal sa lute of twenty.ons guns as the vessels passed, and guns were also fired from wharves and merchant craft, all of which were dressed with (logs. As the squadron approached the frigate Nile, she manned her yards, and the crew, in their white juckets aud trowsera, cheered vociferously. A mighty chorus ol voices rose also from the standing masses o' i>ooplo lining the water side, and great was the waving of hat*. Unfortunately, the weather was cloudy, with drizzling showers at Intervals, but not sufficient to spoil the general eflect of the loene, which was one of extreme beauty. On the walls of the citadel were seen the red coats of the inlkntry, and all Uie way down to the buoy the roofB of the houses wore covered with spectators, and over the heads of these, thousands of banners bung damp and lifeless from their staflb. At ten o'clock the iquadron anchored opposite the dockyard. The prince left the Hero in ono of the boats, and at a few minutes before noon landed at the dockyard amul the thunder of salutes from the six British war steamers in port. He was accompanied by tho Duke of Newcastle and Governor General Bruce. He was received at the landing stops by Lord Mulgravc, who was introluced by the Duke of Newcastle, and with whom he shook hands with self |assessed ou>eaad cordiality, at the same time uttering a Tew words of gratification, while a pleasant smile lighted up his happy looking co on tc nance. I stood near and bad a full view of him. He Is very prepossessing In appearance, elicited general admiration. In height he is flve feet seven, and slightly built | He has a small, but well formed and foil mouthed face, and bis eyes, which have a very merry twinkle, are large and hazel colorcd. He has a complexion equal to that of a peach, aad looks very healthy. His hair is dark brown, and cut so as to show tho lobes of his ears. Ho wore a black cocked hat with a tun of white plumes, a red coat with a blue sash acrosH the breast, aud a white leather belt round the waist, black trow scrs with a thin red stripe down u*rh leg, patent leather boo la, white kid gloves and a regimental sword. This uniform specially belongs to himself. The Mayor and Aldermen of the city were Introduced ou the spot by I^ord Mulpave, when their speaker read the follow log address of wclcomo to him ?
