tine Ground, ?ml w*? immediately boarueu.
Just before the retched the Narrows, she began
? fire signal guns, and m*re than .10 were Brad
between the Narrows and Pier No. t, where the
steamer hauled op.
On the vessel srpproar.hinc the Quarantine
Ground the engine was stored, and immediate
communication was had with the shore. This
was prepared for by the firing of several rockets
between that point and the Narrows, ami when
the vessel stopped, numbers of persons were on
the shore anxiously waiting to see the Magyar.
A salute ot 31 guns was immediately fired, and
during this operation, (which was performed by
one of the Hungarian Artillery, who arrived in
the Mississippi, 'rum the center of the Quaran?
tine Ground,) Dr. Doan-, with CoL Berzenczv
and the Report? rs ol the Vr- ss, ; roc edd 1 to the
steamer and were admitted on board The boat
was decorated with the Hungarian and Ameri?
can Hags, the latter bearing the inscription
m Welcome Kossuth to the land of Freedom.''
On the arrival of Dr. Doane in the saloon of the
steamer, he met Kossuth, and alter shaking
hands with him, addressed bun in the following
words:
Nor,Li M a'.y K& ' Illustrious Kossuth, we greet
you from the Western Wares' ' Wi Rome to the
land of freedom in speeeh and m netto a. Welcome

cessfully to the world the capacity of man for self
government. Welcome, thrice welcome to our in?

liberty in every nat.on and clime, and whirl, rises a*
a memento to the world and to the lovers of free?
dom, of whi't Mpntfaoaa Masqat* i eaa perform.
You come not as a stranger among us, for from the
pine forests of Maine to the < anes <d Texas, from
the coal Behls of Pennsylvania to the golden regions
of f'alifomia, and in all that arid* spread ooaatry
which is washed on one side by the waves of the
briny Atlantic, and on the other by the calm waters of
the Pacific, vour name is known. It will be a pass?
port to every heart?every one will be Open to receive
yon, and your commit will be the Btgaal for the up?
rising of 20,o<o,0b0 of people, who will give you ?
cordial, a heartfelt and an eWthnSjastic wi leOBM
OovBBKoa In your late desperate struggle for the
liberty of your own behoed native country, for 'he
rights of your brother Baanjariaaa, the American
people took a deep, a solemn Interest. Although a
broaden, an rolled between vour land and mine, and
although your battle grounds were afar off, still your
movements were watched with the gn Sil st interest
aad your aaaoaaaaj were greeted with the most en?
thusiastic joy, and were bon e on our electrified
wires, with the swiftness of lightning, and looked to
with such delight, that they e xcited the lushest de?
gree of enthusiasm, and filled the \rnerican people
with great hope's. When we found that you were
unsuccessful, we did not lorget you, but animated
with the spirit of Huger, who released f.i Payctte
from the Cattle ol Olmutz, we looked with longmg
eyes to Kutahia, and even consulted upon a scheme
to set you free.
We thank Cod that the time has come when you
are frte ' We thank tiod that you are arrive><l in our
land of freedom, and in earnest w e again welcome
you to our free Republic, and trust that your comtne
here, and your efforts on behalf of liberty, will not
only be useful to Amern a, but tnat your words will
e?ho throughout Europe unt 1 you see lluugary free,
elevated among the nations of the earth, and in con
sequence of the lata struggle, placed in a position of
perfect independence.
I now present you x*\ti> ? laabaa from the Mayor
of the City of New-York, which will inform you of
the present momentary arrangements for your com?

to thank vou that 1 am at liberty by the generosity of

for freedom in Europe-, as well as in this nation, has
a kind frelmg for Hungary. I am thankful for the
generous action taken for my libervtion by America,
which you say is an infant country, but 1 say no'
f be is a giant and though she has only been a
abort time in her growth, some 75 years, she his
done more than other nations who have been 1,000
yeara m existence, and as the [niwer of steam has
blotted the word distance from the dictionary, with
regard to ctossiug the Atlantic, 1 hope and trust that
American geneioMtv and \nn rc an sympathy will

which you in the Cashed States revere, and though my
country is not ao great as yours, nor are my people
no happy and free, as you are, still I hope we shall
meet with your favor and your sympathy iu the
raase of our nation [Applause.]
After this asVtttoea, Koaaath and the members
of his stall, together vvilh i>r Doane. proceeded
to the shore, and a carriage being ready, they
immediately moved to that gentleman's resi?
dence, w here the Magyar took poeseasioa of the
auite of rooms prepared lor htat, and alter taking
refreshments retired to rest.
On leaving the Dock at Sou i ha nipt on. the
Hamboldt was cheered by countless thousands
who assembled to bid farewell to Kossuth. and
as the vessel meved trom her moonn.-s the last
burst of enthusiasm almost rent the air.
On ge tting cut to sea. and ot the first dinner
party after clearing the land, Oaf, Lines drank

roue ami cheered bun vociferously. He did not
inane *?iy speech in reply, but politely bowed to
the company severs 1 times during the continu?
ance of ?M cheering
During the vc)agc. which was very boister?
ous, no demonstration was made, as the- Magyar
was very aick during most of the titan. He
wrote a gre at deal dining the passage, and re?
mained very select, not even lute;nigh . i

On the pilot boat meeting the vessel, as it ap

Kossuth is a genid-looking man, about five feel
seven or eight inches in hight, and with great ex?
pression of leature. His eye u all intelligence.
He appears to be a slim man, rather than full in

tachios which cover the lower part of hia lace.
Hia hands are very small, and hl* costum?,
when he arrived, was the simple unadorned
dress of his country, the great coat, the Hunga?
rian hat, with its feather and dangling tassels.
Altogether he has a commanding figure, and the

Lord Palmerston. who had listened with great at?
tention to the readme Of the adcresse-*, sai!, he felt
extrtmely flatiered and highly gratified by this ex?
pression of opinion OH the part of so large I number
of Ins feUow-coustrymea for bis exertions in en?
deavoring to promote the e uise of national freedom
an < i n ti.".-e nations who s|oo-i in net I of i? T if
Government were fully aware of the sympathies of
the British nation in favor of the muse of Hungary
but, of course, as the organ of the Government of
her Majesty, who was m friendly alliance with the
great foreign powers which had beenreferredto.it
could not t e expected that he should concur in some
of the expressions which had been used in thoal
drcsfes. lie fait, however, that it was highly grati?
fy iig to have been instrumental in aiding the muse
of the t alimtie Hungarians and Pole*, who. WtthOUl
British ii tervection, would no doubt hive be n
doomed to perpetual imprisonment, and have s i ri
ficed their Ireedom.if not even their live?.in thee lUte
of their r emotiv '? mdeper.de nee. Tnev never could
have been rescued from the fate which a waited tnein,
even by the aid which the government of this coun?
try was enat led to atbird, bail not the Eovernment
been backed t.y public opinion here, 'l ucre was no
fjuestion of the great moral powerw i.ich the gov ern?
ment of this country had over foreign affairs, so Ion?
as the government were backed in the exercise of
that power by the public opinion of tue people. No
doubt the BSOrai |>owerof the British Government
w as immense, more than people generally imagined,
but it would be only effective so long as tne people
and the government a en' together. 1 He ir ] There
could be on doubt that with regard to its Hungarian
policy the government had been bucked by the peo
pie?as was instanced by the fact of the appeals
which had been m nie from ;.ll quarters and from all
the large towns and cities in the kingdom, urging on
the government interference in that important
question, it wa? not necessary that England should
exercise a power with its armies, watt its bayo?
nets, or with Us cannon. The moral power,
where the government was backed by the people,
Would do .i ..'ri it deal iii?ie The moral [?wer was
greate r than au v thine el.-e. but even that could not
be made effective, unless the Government and peo?
ple acted in unison. The Government, more espe
cinlly the Foreign Department, were sometimes ac?
cused of l.eep'iig too much secrecy wuh regard to
iheir transactions w rth foreign powers It ants said
there ought not to be so much secrecy in diplomacy
but. upon the same ground that men in the ordinarv
business transactions of life, did not make public all
tb? de-tail* o| such Uraaa mliona, until tn? ??? >u m?
which tin \migh' be engaged were completed, so
also was il BOCOSsaTy that the publication of the
plot Oeding! ol diplomacy shiuld be left to the jVtdg
men; and diseretionof thai department of the Gor?
eminent in order property to transact the buahtOM
of the nation. The noble lord again said, the re?
ception of these addresses aist read, and the gen?
eral expression of approval of his conduct on the
part of his countiynsen, afforded him unfeigned
pleasure and gratification.
Mr. Bbaen observed, that he felt that the poopli "f
Ei gland hail been hitherto somewhat lukewarm
and callous as to the relations of this country with
foreign nations . but recent ev ents, coupled w ith the
circumstance that encouragement was held out to
them by the Government that they should do so,
would have the effect for the future of making them
equally alive to foreign as to domestic subjects.
Lord Palmerston remarked that one 01 the difli
(raittea which was felt in the conduct of foreign
affairs arose from lbs fact of the great bulk of tin
people caring generally little about them. The
Government q ,u no desire to be urged on to war,
although they w ere desirous of upholding the nation
alily of foreign countries. At tne time when Hun?
garian affairs were agitating the world?he did not
allude to re ent le inoustrat ions here, but those w hich
led to the step on the part of th'1 Government were
the great demonstrations held in Glasgow. Edin?
burgh. Birmingham, and all the great to ?ras, as well
as the Btetropenis?wken fom (r fifty addresses In I

rye. In 1M3 he was male a Field Marshal, but on
the accession of WiUiam IV., took umbrage at being
preceded in the command of all the Horse Guards by
the Duke of Wellington, and resigned his rank in
the army
The youth of this prin-e was dissipated and disre?
putable. At 2f? (in rlttj he entered tha House of 1
lairds. Hu was a Tory, and a violent partisan. In
1*15 he married the Princess of Solms-BraunfeK
lb wa* the ant member of the lauaa of Peers to
take the oaths to ijueeu Victoria, by whose aaaaj
sion to the Briti-h throne he became King of Han?
over, as that Kingdom couid not be held by a woman.
He entered on his government in 1-.1T by withdraw?
ing the Constitutional right* that William IV. had
granted to the people of Hanover, la I Mo he aaJ to
give them back, and in MM made still further con
I cessions. During the Irish famine, he made a dona?
tion of $10,000 for the relief of the sufferer*. He
was net beloved by his subjects. His passions were
hot and his disposition arbitrary, but he had some
good impulses and always adhered to his frien '
He w ill be succeeded on the throne of Hanover by
his only son, George Frederick, who was born May

Terrible Accident on (be Hudson River It ill
rend.
Last r ight, abont ilark, ;i terrible accident
occurred near Veridanck't Point, by the collision of
three trains, whereby some '.'.1 petSMM aran more or
less injured, and probably three or four killed.
It seems that the 4 o'clock or I'oughkcepue tram
from this City, stopped at the place of too collision
for the purpose of putting down two passengers, (it
is said for not paying their fan ,) and !>efore thev
started an engine and tender came rapidly up, eup
peising the track to be clear, and ran into the afore
said Poughkeopsie train, amashing one cir, and in?
juring several pSftoni
Word wa* iinmediatcly sent luck to the next
sw it?vh to turn the approaching Albany tram (5o'clock
from Newt ork) off to the last even track, (the new
track.) which it seldom med This was done, and
the Albany tram stopped atoa^stsia the Poughkeep
ue tram to takeoff the pa-sender* and carry them
forward
The same messe nger who went back to switch ofT
the \lbany tram was also charged to order the Peeks
kill train, which left New ? York at 5i o'clock, to take
tke same course, with the additional in unction to
ninth" This latter part of the message; was for?
gotten by the messenger and the switch tender, and
when the conductor of the Peekskili train pissed
the switch he increased hi- 'j^ed for the purpose of
reaching Peekskili before the passage of the 3|
o'clock mail train from Albany
It would seem that the Peekskili conductor was
not aware that the Albany tram had stopjied along?
side the Poughkeepsle train, and when he < one m
sifcht of them he was under full headway. The ut?
most efforts were made to ?la< ken speed, but the
collision was nevertheless temole. Two of the Al?
bany cars were smashed into splinters, and about *2i
persons were badly injured but noi.e were abso?
lutely killed, although it Is presumed that at laast
two died during the night. Our informant saw one
