THE RETURN HOME, m. mi A* history of Die Great Fkaterc baa been one of epochs. Whether on the stocks or In tha water, in the tone proam of a launch, or the scene of a life destroying explosion, on a passage acroee the Atlantic or aa the focus of a multitude?from her Inception until the preaent moment, the events that have followed each other thick and bat In her chequered career hare partaken of the stupendous I'uvKwr vi uiv wi| uiip u. The present excursion ought do! to be excluded from this catalogue, for while it is no uncommon occurrence lor a oompany, much greater in number than that now throbbing around mo, to embark 011 a jollification jaunt to a distant place, never In the history of this or any other country has there been such a conglomeration of humanity, such a scene and such surroundings, as those which characterize this first pleasure peregrination of the coloaaal Queen of the Sea. As such, It is worthy of a plana la the current record of the times. A trip to Cape May is an event of ordinary occurrence; but a trip on tha Urcat Eastern Is another thing; and when It was modestly announced in the journals of tho day that she would prooecd thither for the purpose af affording the public an opportunity of personally enjoying such a voyage, there were few hearts that did not pulsate in sympathy with the tboight, "How 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 mtereata entrusted to their care which has throughout characterized the management of the big ship on the part of the directors representing tho Great Eastern Company In this country, these gentlemen aaw fit to charge, for the privilege of a two days'sail, the high price of ten dollars, eiclusive of the keeping and naosaaary comforts of the voyagers. Naturally, ?very asM oownenced his srntun<>tical calculations. H-ro *? lour dollars extra for a berth in wh.ch to sleep, at least two dollars a day per capiia for the privilege of eat Ing, an additional two dollars for a twelve ho ur?' interval at GhpslUj, and sundry oilier miscellaneous incidentals, I which would swell the expense well nigh upon tfolhurs. The result rv that for the entire week follow lag the advertisement the utinoet ndilU-roiice appeared to prevail, and it wu only low an 1 then ttmt one cuuld W found in tho whole community auxious to const' forward and lo<>?en I s p-..rse strings to th^ r"^ ,r?d extent. Cp So Saturday n.ght th'.n number amounted to the insignificant figure of eight hundred, u1 tho cor ?n plated icuiston i robwed to be a m**1' ilcoot fauure.

It waa amusing, bowerer, to watch this variegated thrnog aa they came on board. ' Where's my atate room f" was the un'versal Inquiry, and Invariably the drat movement waa ia tha direction of the Imaginary place wbere they ware to repose, or the imaginary individual who kept the keys to tbess Morpheas recesses.

It waa now about three o'clock. THX iTFKUUNCl OF TBI CIO WD. At this time It waa interesting in the extreme, So far as numbers are concerned, they exceeded even those who witnessed tbe arrival of the Great Eastern. On both sides of the river aa for aa the eye could reach, up and down, tbe shore was black with people. Housetops, billsld<*, wharves, ships, barges, rigging?everything that afforded foothold to see the spectacle waa occupied. Immediately around the ship lay a score of steamboats, tugs, rowboats, and small craft, all loaded to tbe water's edge and waiting the departure of tbe ship. Owing to tbe per. versity of the tide, however, TBS START did not take place until after four o'clock. As we have before remarked, tbe Qreat Eastern lay with her bead up tbe stream. In order to turn tbe gigantio vessel the steamtugs Achilles and Yankee were employed, but for more than half an hour after tbe huge anchor left its muddy bed?tbe largest by the way that ever rested on tnc bottom or the Hudson?1007- strovo with might And main to bring her into proper position. Tbe ship yielded gradually, however, and at a quarter to five o'clock the revolution of tbc paddles and tbe screw, and tbe long white wake behind, announced that we wore fairly on our way to it;a. The scene that now ensued is one that cannot be soon forgotten by any Individual who witnessed it. The multitude of humanity ww \1s1ble on every side. On shore thseye reeled upon nothing but crowds, extending even back Into the country as Tar as the vision could reach, and on the water eighteen or twenty steamer* loaded to the guaids, bedecked with colors, whistling their enthusiasm and thundering their salutations, glided along in the huge ishadow of the Groat Eastern at It trembled in the wau-rs of the bay. We did not oount all of these, but tbc follow a.g arc the naavq of those recalled to u.nd at the pri-sent nu rucLt, together with the estimated number of pa.-?engere on board:?

W.thout, it Is not diUicult fo imagine the appearance of twenty steamers, lotted down to the water's edge, constituting an aq-iati: escort, of which noue could be a more worthy object than the noMe sb'p upon wh!:h we are; wLiie within and around ; us the excursiouisis have betaken themselves to every lo>-al.ty on tae ship where they are not posiltrely forbidden. to enjoy the spectacle. S me sre la the tops, others arc scattered through tbe rigging; many of the ladies bsve taken tli* pllttorms st the base of the wbeelhoussa, while ih t. the passengtrs arc located along tbe bnlwarks, standing on tiptoe, with their glasses peering at the ten thouMnd objects of infrest around. Tbe day IS glorious. Tbe ragged. t ireatei n* clouds have broken away In great masses, that are rolling off in tbe distance. The warm *um<hiiie has tinged all nature with !<s lowliness and tlie brightest am. ci pat iocs of a pleasant excursion bid lair to be realised. AM ACCIDENT. When halfway to Platen Island tbe ship was detained about three-quarters of an hour by tbe breaking of the i cat hook which held up the anchor and its slack chain, so that tbe latter were precipitated tweoty or thirty feet into the wster. *>me trouble was experienced in repairing the diClculty, but it was finally overcome, and Uto hlitn rrfluDifxl her triLnnhil mirt h In this connection It nriij alao b? ment'ooed that during Ibc prof reaa at weighing anchor, wame dlfliculty waa eiperienced by rruun of tho constant flipping of the lamraM cable upon tbe capstan.

Thank a to the klodneaa of these gentlemen, we are afforded every facility for writing?a very important feature to ua by the way?while a single meal brings out In striking cootraat the wretched fkro to which we have been aubjected. Aa the day advanced quite a large number of the New York excursionists were added to our company, the principal object being the enjoyment of a good dinner and a glorious bath in the surf, which the Bandy nature of ihe atmoapberc and the beat of the day made a decided luxFrom thia point, about two milea from the landing, the groat ship was barely visible, her outline* Hhowing dtmly and indistinctly on the edge of the horizon, and ber masts bearing semblance, in the distance, to a diminutive aectlon of a thinly planted hedge fence in winter. Opera f laaaea bring her In slotier contact to thoae who are lookog from the windows of the hotel, and the same curi osity exists, od a tmaJler scale, which marked her ad Tent In the bay of New York. TH* EXCCHAIONIHTH FROM CAI'K MAT. Little occurrcd during tbe day on et ;h<*r ship or shore pec tally worthy of notice. Tbe boa la J. L. Khrever, Jss. A. Warner, Delaware, Ball<xin, and a number of others wboee names do not occur to mind, came from I*bila. delphia, and otber points on tbe bay, with passengers, and landed them upon the ship. The entire number of visiters was between four and Ave thouaand. The idea had been extensively circulated among them, however, that tbe Great Eastern would not arrive at (fepe May, owing to an accident which, It was telegraphed on Mon day evening, bad occurred on board while lying in the I bay. This, several of the excursionists said, had Its effect in raising a doubt, which resulted in the comparatively small number of visiters present. About one hundred persons availed themselves of the opportunity to visit New York in the big ship, the Care from Cape May being placed at Ave dollars. Numerous tickets were sold among the crowd on tbe wharf by the Naw Yorkers, to whom I have referred as being thoroughly disgusted These went off at prices ranging from two to four dollars, and one individual was so Impregnated with the feeling that be gave his ticket away tor a tan cent piece with a hole In it, which he says be shall put a string through to preserve as a souvenir. Great difficulty was experienced In getting people on board tbe Great Eastern from the steamers, because of tbe long ground swell that prevailed. Tbe side stairways were crushed almost beyond redemption by tbe steamers alongside surging against them, and the leaping and dodging of those who went on board, to get on tbe gangway, was In stme instances perilous in tbe extreme. Tbe best of nature animated tbe crowd, however, and barring a little Impatience on the part of each one to get ahead of his neighbor, nothing threw a shadow over anybody's heart. A MAN OVKRBOAXD. On one of these occasions, just previous to tbe arrival of the James A. Warner, a man was seen to plunge from the wheclhouse In tbe water below. For a moment breath was suspended at tbe startling incident, but on rushing to the side the Individual was discovered striking out for tbe wheel, in a cool and rsckless manner, and order was restored. It Is not known whether the m in fell or jump eu; oui, irom ui? manner, 11 is Buppoecu iimi uouuuua leap merely for the purpose of lionizing himself. ! THK KKTITW. At half-past nix the peoplo on the Greet KAStorTi had the | Kutlsfacuon of hoaring the order given to get under weigh, and the operation of raising the anchor at once became an interesting relief to the monotony of the day. At eight o'clock we were well under way, bowline along at the rate of thirteen knots an hour. Salutes wero exchanged with the steamship State of (ieorgla, bound outward, and as both vessels were travelling for a short time in one direction- the opportunity was afforded of comparing the superior speed of the <ireat hastcrn, which ran away from her comi?titor with as mncb ease as a man would outwalk a child. Supper was a little Improved. The waiters have bad a talking to, and Mr. Cox has like vise received admonitions of a storm about his ears, which have added an additional wrinkle to his corrugated brow. An Instance occurred daring the day which tihow* tho root of tho trouble, and how little the manap.-m^nt of the ship hsvo been able to control the operations of this ''autocrat of the dinner table." Some of the directors def ired to dine at a certain hour with a knta.ll party of friends. Tlic meal was accordingly ordered in the usual way, Mr C. being the caterer; buf, notwithstanding, two hour* and .1 Imlf elapsed belbr<' thoy succeeded in eiiecting their object. Then it was only done through the perseverance of oue of tho directors, who, with Lis own digniiicd hands, wcut and helped him self. It will tie ?een, therefore, that tli"*e geitlonjen are not entirely to blame for all the detklencles experienced. and that when they cannot help thcnis<.!v<'S it is impossible for thetn to help others. AT WIGHT. The night was lovely. Dwlwurlk'ft UkI.J ad. tho Hirers In motion, and for two or three hour* the so tie by moonlight was as delightful as one could wish.
