A NIGHT ON THE ATLANTIC. Fan, Hunger, Misery and Mattresses. AN INDIGNATION MEETING ON BOARD. AXTJSEffG SCENES AND INCIDENTS. A MAN OVERBOARD. THE KKTURN HOME, M.i to. to. Tk. history of the Great Baatern baa been one of epochs. Whether on the atocka or in the water, in the long pro eta of a launch, or the acene of a lifo destroying explosion, on a paaaage across the Atlantlo or as the focua of a multitude?from her Inception until the present moment, the events that have followed each other thick and Cut hi her chequered career hare partaken of the etupendoua character of the big ahlp itself. The present excursion ought not to be excluded from this catalogue, for while it la no uncommon occurrence for a company .much greater in number than that now throbbing around mo, to embark on a jollification jaunt lo a distant place, never In the history of thia or any ****? Hat th?w? Wn inch * rnn*lnm*rAt'nn of humanity, such a scone and eucb surroundings, as those wbiob characterize this first pleasure peregrination of the colossal Queen of the 9ea. Aa tuch, It la worthy of a place 1b the current record of Ike times. A trip to Cape Hay Is an event of ordinary occurrence; but a trip on the Great Eastern is another thing; and when tt was modestly announced In the journals of the day that she would proceed thither fbr the purpose ef affording the public an opportunity of personally enjoying such a voyage, there were few hearts that did not pulsate in sympathy with the thought, "Bow I should like to go." One drawback, however, and a most essential one, tx>, prevented many from yielding to this first and strongest impulse. With that keen eye to the interests entrusted to their care which has throughout characterized the management of the big ship on the part of the dlre:tors representing tho Great Eastern Company In this country, these gentlemen saw fit to charge, for the privilege of a two days'sail, the high prtee of ten dollars, eicluslve of the keeping and nsuissnj comforts of the voyagers. Naturally , every MM cosamenced bis arlttimetical calculations. Here was four dollars extra for a berth tn to sleep, at least two dollars a day per capita for tbe priv'legeof eat Ing, an additional two dollars for a twelve hoars' interval at Cape May, and sundry other miscellaneous incidentals, which would swell tbe exponse well nigh upon twnty dollars. The result was that for the entire week follow lag tbe advertisement tbe utmost indifference appeared to prevail, and It was only now and then that one could he found in the whole coraint nity anxious to come forward and loosen Ms purse strings to the rer^ r?d extent.

Quito a CQns.derable proportion it composed of ladles, and, tVaege to say for such a gathering, there la aot one observable on whom ausptokw can for a moment rest. Messrs. Dickson, Young, Farley, Radford and Doxsabury, detectives, and Capw;n 8sabrisg,of tha Ninth precinct, are alao on board, and thongh their aervtose have not aa yet been required, their presence has doubtless been valuable, on the principle that 11 aa ounce ef preventive is worth a pound of core." It was amusing, however, to watch this variegated throng as they came oa board. ' Where's my state room J" was the universal inquiry , and invar ably the first movement wss in the direct .on of the imaginary place where they were to repose, or the Imaginary individual who kept the keys to these Morphean recesses. Officers, nervants, seamen?people of all other* on the ship the laut capable of 'ApW tag 'be required Information?were button holed, annoyed and victimised by the impatient orowd, until tbey were almost hoar so with?" Go to Mr. Bold." " Who's Mr. Bold t" ' The man with the blue ribbon around fcishatand book under hla arm?who 'a always taking muff." (We may alao add that he is the financial manager of the aftaira of the ship.) The result is that the brunt of these attacks fell upon the unfortunate gentleman whose ' blue ribbon" made him such a conspicuous mirk of attraction. With a fund of pleasantry, however, which, like a shrewd politician he knew how to use, the pertinacious applicants were requested to wait until after the starting of the ship, and for the time be was left to enjoy his snuff bo* and neuralgia in gomebting like the peace be coveted. It was now about three o'clock. TBI AfTEAftAXCB 07 THE CROWD. At this time it was interesting in the extremis, no far as numbers are concerned, they exceeded even those who witnessed the arrival of tlic Great Eastern. On both sides of the river as far as the eye could reach, up and down, the shore was black with people. Housetops, hillsides, wharves, ships, bargee, rigging?everything that afforded foothold to see the spectacle was occupied. Immediately around the ship lay a score of steamboats, tugs, rowboats, and small craft, all loaded to the water's edge and waiting the departure of the ship. Owing to the per. versity of the tide, however, THE START < did not take place until after four o'clock. As we have before remarked, the Great Eastern lay with her heal up the stream. In order to turn the gigantio vessel the teamtuga Achillea and Tankee were employed, but for more than half an hour after the huge anchor left its muddy bed?the largest by the way that ever rested on the bottom of the Hudson?they atrovo with might and main to bring her into proper position. The ship yielded gradually, however, and at a quarter to five o'clock the nI volution ?f the paddles and the screw, and the long wbito wake behind, annet noed that we wore fairly on our way to sea. The scene that now ensued is one that cannot be soon forgotten by any individual who witnessed it. The multitude of humanity was visibte on every side. On shore thseye rrrted upon nothing but crowds, extending even back Into the country as far as the vJion could reach, and on the aaU-r eighteen or twenty steamers loaded to the guaids. bedecked w th color", whistling their enthu*iuui and thundering their salutations, glided along in the huge (shadow of llie Great LaaWn at it trembled in the waters of the bay.

There wm a Koo?l deal of spoon, tome tablecloth and a variety of Inei dentals pleasant to look upoa, but as for the food, its appearance was as rare as a comet. The coffee gar e oat on the second round. It cost a fee of half a dollar merely to breathe tbe passing intense of a cup. Chlokens smelt all over of antiquity; ham was Rait, beef tough; tongne was nowhere, and tee, of which several tons had been shipped In tho morning, was said to have given out. Infect, a general ft mine would have overwhelmed all hinds if tbe amp had been a meal and a half away from land. The waiters, too, wore, with a few exceptions, rare rpecimens of their species. One of these ex option*?and we are glad to notice them?was the carver the second dining saloon, who became so disgusted with the whnli proceeding that he lakl down his knife and cleared out in dlsgut. Another was a gentle old darkey, wboae ? hated head and gathered topknot made blm look like a venerable edition of a Japanese. The passengers called blm tbe 'Tycoon," and awres of ladles and gentlemen sre indebted to his Impartial care. Aa for the rest, they were a set of unmlticatal rascal*, rhey would lie, cheat, steal your chairs, and almost your money. We beard one asked by a gentleman tor a oup of "All out," was tbe reply. ' Go and get a little lor my lady, won't you?" "Go to hell," was the rasponee, totfo boy, and tbe villain went oil', with a mad floorHh, as If be was golfig to tear the kitchen down. Others were perfectly blind and detf, metaphorically a peaking* to all inquiries, and it was only when their palms were scratched with tne evil root, which they did not hesitate unblusblngly to ask for, that they aoemed at all to ooropreaend that they bad been indnctriously requested to obtain ? desired article of food.

TBI EXCUKfUONlBTH FROM CAFE MAT. Little occurred during the day on el ;her ship or aboro specially worthy of notice. The boa la J. L. ?hrever, Jaa. K. Warner, Delaware, Balloon, and a number of others whoee names do not occur to mind, came from l'b.lalelphia, and other points on the bay, with passengers, md landed them upon the ship.

It was telegraphed on Mon lay evening, bad occurred on board while lying in the bay. Thin, several of the excursionist* said, had its effect in raising a doubt, which resulted in tho comparatively small number of visiters present. About one hundred persons availed themselves of the opportunity to visit New York In the big ship, tho fore from Capo May being placed at five dollars. Numerous tickets were told among the crowd on the wharf by the New Yorkers, to whom I have referred as being thoroughly disgusted rheae went off at prices ranging from two to four dollars, tod one Individual was so Impregnated with the feeling Lhat he gave his ticket away for a ten cent piece with a bole In It, which he says ho shall put a string through to preserve aa a souvenir. Great difficulty was experienced In getting people on board the Great Eastern from the steamer*, because of the long ground swell that prevailed. The side stairways were crushed almost beyond redemption by the steamers alongside surging against them, and the leaping and dodging of those who went on board, to get on the gangway, was In st me Instances perilous in the extreme. The best of nature animated the crowd, however, and barring a little impatience on the part of each one to get ihead of his neighbor, nothing threw a shadow over anybody's heart. A MAN OVERBOARD. On one of these occasions, just previous to the arrival of the James A. Warner, a man was seen to plunge from the irheelhouse In the water below. For a moment breath ras suspended at the startling Incident, but on rushing to be side the Individual was discovered striking out for he wheel, In a cool and rsokless manner, and order was estored. It is not known whethor the m in fell or jump <1; but, from his Is supposed lhat be made a aap merely for the purpose of lionizing himself. THK RKTfRV. At half-past si* the people on the Great Eastern hail the At is fact ion of heartDR the order given to get under weigh, ind the operation of raising the anchor at once became in interesting relief to tbe monotony of the day. At eight o'clock we were well under way, bowling along at the rate of thirteen knots an hour. Salutes wero exchanged with the steamship State of Ueorgia, bound outward, and as both vessels were travelling for a short time in one direction the opjiortmiity was afforded of comparing the superior speed of the ?ireat Kastern, which ran away from her committor with as much ease as a man would outwalk a child. Supper was a little improved. The waiters have had a talking to, and Mr. Cox has like ?is? received admonitions of a storm about lils ears, which l.ave added an add! tional wrinkle to his corrugated brow. An Instance occurred during the day which shows tho root of tho iruuutc, nuu UUW IIHM iuo Hmii.tkr- iu.ui ?u nn: ouiy uitu been able to control the oper*?i< us of this "autocrat of the dinner table."

A few n.gbta ago there was a Bell and Everetttratificatioo meet -ng here, and 1 am Informed that only about 300 persons were n attendance. It was a sultry night, but there was a fa.r degree of enthusiasm exhibited. The speakers were Col. Thomas W. Miller and Col. John Ifillidge. On the followiog night the tationaJ democrats, the Douglas and Johnson men, had a meeting, fully double Uw slae of the Bell and Everett gathering, and the proceedings were characterize by greet confidence and enthusiasm. I am surprised at the number of Douglas men that 1 l\nd In this locality.
