APPLAUSI Fon CHOBF JOSEPH. After tin? appaarsnne of the head of the line had been applauded, the first enthusiasm for the parade v. a* awakened by Chief Joseph, who rodo near the beginning of tho procBBBloa, with Colono! William P. Cody muffalo BUI) on his right, and OlO-COt, his sub-chief, on his left. He was roundly applauded, thotigh no doubt somo of the applauso was intended for Beffalo Kill, who la a popular character too. The West Tolnt men were also near tho head of the line. Th? y marched evenly and can-fully, and showed that 'hey meant to do themselves credit, a* they did. and received thu applause for It that they assented. The Navy forces wore popular, as they always are, and there was applause for tho Marine Band. Tho marines marched capitally also. The Bailors looked a little like fish out of water, but the crowd always likes sailors. The array of the National Guard of New-York s??, need Interminable. Pride In Its numbers and training, and weariness In having to see so much of it pass, were contending emotions in the breasts ? if the New-Yorkers who stood or sat by. The 7th and 'J'-'d Regiments wore of course tho favorites, but the ttthmanaged to do some of the best marching that was don? by th,? First Brigada ?? the Second Brigade the appearance of the Uth Regiment was good, and that of the ~'M more than good. There were evidently many people about tha stands near the President's position who were on the watch for Governor Hastings, of Pennsyl? vania. There were exclamations of "Thero he comes!" "Thero ho is!" while the New-Y'ork troops were still passing, and when ho really did come, bowing and waving his hat to all around him and looking. OS his horse, at least a head taller than anybody who had paBBftl before, there were cheers and cheers. The IVnnsylvanla troops made a per- I Beatali} fino appearance, marching more com pai tly than tho New-York men and showing a fine effect when looked at In the mass. Governor Grtggs of New-Jersey was also cheered heartily. ! At about this time a ceremony was performed which the crowd appreciated more than anything ? ? ?.? that had happened. There was a gap in the line, and while the troops behind were coming up there appeared a wat-ring cart and sprinkled the road up and down In front of th?? reviewing atand and between the other stands. The people recog- j nixed what It was with difficulty, through their , dunt-bedlmmed eyes, and cheered and took heart. Being at liberty at the moment, the crowd took to I < I.??. ring for the President, as It did, Indeed, at every opportunity through the day. QOVKRNOI WOLOOTT A GOOD HORSEMAN. Then came governors and governors. Governor I Cooke of Connecticut attracted attention With his foot guard in Continental uniform, and Governor j Wolcott of Maaaachuactta was applauded for his line horsemanship. The nth Regiment of Maryland waa a popular one, and its veteran Corpa was ' espi tally so. The Amoskcag Veterans, accom- 1 panjrlna Governor Ramsd. 11 of New-Hampshire | aroused interest by tlnlr curious uniforms, and then came troops from Virginia, and after them Governor Upplt? of Rhode Island. At this point Mrs. Grant, Frederick D. Hunt and Mr*. Sartoris left the stand and rod?? away in a carriage. Governor Hushn? 1! of Oi.io had a rousing re? ception, and th'-n Governor Tanner of Illinois had the greatest one of all. He was received with lmi.i cheers and erlea of "The man that beat Altgeld!" At about lids time the President left the> review? ? lug stand to go on board the Dolphin to review t:.? naval parada He took hla way to the pier a: One-hundred-and-twenty-nlnth-at., the way ? being kepi clear for him with somo difficulty. . S->nn? part of the crowd had gone ahead of hiin and mor?' of it followed, and when he reached tho pier there was renewed cheering. The President j wi it at once on board the lighthouse tender Daisy, which took him to 1)10 Dolphin.

In this were the New-York letter-carriers, whoso fin? showing has already been mentioned, and enough Axemen and engines, it -.. emed, to put ont a conflagration of the whole city at once. A striking con'vast was male by the paradina of an engine of in? newest and most Im? proved style between two of the old hand engines, which are always dragged out from somewhere by the volunteer firemen on such occasiona as this.

Ordinarily a tugboat attracts little attention, and even the stately river and Round steamers go on their dally courses without attracting notice.
