The first great meeting of ihe people of
New York with Kossuth was held on Sis-
ten Island previous to the tlty reception.
An address, welcoming the exile to our
shores, was dellverrd by Richard Adams
Locke. To this M. Kossuth replied in the
following opeech, which, apart, from its gene
ral interesr, defines hia position on several
points which have been, heretofore, the sub
ject of aeculaiion:
La dim Aito Gentlemen: The twelve
hours that I have had the honor and happi
nesa to standi on your glorious shores, give
me a happy nugurv of the fact that, during
my stay .here in the United States, I shall
have a pleasant duty to perform, to answer
the many manifestations of ihe generous
public spirit of the people of this country
(Cheers -1 hone, however, that you wi
be so kind as to take into consideration the
circumstance that I am in the first moments
of a hard task; and more particularly hard
to me, because I shall have to address your
enlightened and intelligent people in a tongue
foreign to me. iou will not expect I rom
me a long and elaborate speech, but will be
contented with a few warmly-uttered, warm'
ly-felt words of thankfulness and gratitude
to vou. IUheers.1 Citizons, accept my ler
rent thanks for your generous welcome on
my arrival to your happy shores, and my
blessing upon you for the sanction of mv
hones which you express. You have most
truly expressed what my hope are, when
you tell me what you consider the destiny of
vour glorious country to be: when you tell
me that henceforth, the spirit of liberty will
go 'forth and achieve the freedom of the
world. ("Cheers.
Ye citizens, these are the hopes which
have induced me in a most important and
eventful period, when every moment may be
the turning pont in Europe's destiny to
cross the Atlantic ocean bul intending m
hasten back to the field of duty sooner than
I would otherwise propose. Sooner, per
haps, even than I would like to do. 1 con
fidently hope, citizens, that as you have an
ticipated my wishes by the expression of
your generous sentiments, even so you will
agree with me in the conviction that tho
spirit of liberty has not only spiritually, but
materiuliy, to go forth from your glorious
country in order that it may achieve the
fieedom of tho world. I hat spirit itself is
the inspiring power to deeds, but yet no deed
in itself: and you need not be told that those
who would be free, must, besides being in
spired, also 'strike the blow.' Loud cheers.
Despotism and oppression never yet were
beaten except by heroic resolution, and vig
orous, manly resistance. That is a sad ne
cessity but it is a necessity nevertheless
I have so learned it out of the great book of
history. I hope the people of tho United
States will remember, that in the hour of
their nation's glorious struggle, it received
from Europe more than kind wishes and
friendly sympathy. It received material
aid from others In timet past, and it will
doubtless, Impart now its mighty agency in
achieving the liberty of other lands
The Speaker, who has explained your
sentiments, gave me the assurance before
had appealed to your sympathies, that the
independence ol Hungary is not only a ben
efit to Hungary itself, but an indispensable
condition to the freedom of the European

land, and as I now repeal ii to the pouple of
America, frankly and openly, I desire to see
respected the right of every nation to dis

myself have felt resolute in every place,
every country, to respect that principle.
Hence, I come not here to the Untied Mate
to intermeddle with your internal concerns
You are the sovereign masters of your
fate. I come hither in tho name ot my

uttered sentiments in England, such as, if I

is simply this: that a gentleman from Amer

rious one. never was there a man in the
world more fond of tranquility and of a re
tired life than mvself; and never thus far in
my life, have 1 been able to enjoy this hap
piness for a eirsle moment. . I have n--t h-j
able to enjoy ii because I always cutisidered
the duty of the patriot to be first and para
mount, and that only a Tier that are to come
individual wishes, individual Inclinations.
My nomination to the high station of Gover
nor of Hungary was not to gratify an Ambi
tious purpose: indeed I know no oiner am
bition than that of not being ambitious;
Applause and I declare that never, per
haps, in my life did I feel more sad than at
ihe moment when I was named Governor of
Hungary; because I considered my feeble
faculties of mind and the high duties laid
upon my feeble shoulders; and I was almost
afraid of the high responsibilities of . that
great station. 1 therefore, not out of ambi
tion that I thank you for the work that you
have assigned to me in naming me Gover
nor of Hungaiy but I thank you for it be
cause the acknowledgement, on ihe pan of
the people or the United States, whom I
have the honor to address, is an acknow
ledgment of ihe rightful existence of the
Declaration or Independence or Hungary
Cheors. And, gentlemen, I frankly de
dure that I believe the people of the United
States are bound, in honor and in duty, to
recognise this Declaration of Independence
as a rghieously existing fact, because your
very existence reposes on a similar , declare
lion. Hear, hear.' This Declaration of
the Independence of Hungary is the only
existing puoitc law tl my nation, it was
not ihe proclamaii&n bt a single man nor of
a party; but it was the solemn declaration of
the whole nation in C tigress tssumbled, as
your lurelthers wero assembled to put forth
our own glorious Declaration of Indepen
dence. It was sanctioned by every village.
by every municipality of the whole coun
try. It is the declaration of Hungary, and
no counter pronurciation from my people
has ever yet come fonh to the world. Hence

Violence can establish a fact contrary to

can destroy the rightful source of this Dec

Take for instance, the elotious struccle
you had not long ago with Mexico in which
Gen. Sttoil drove out tho Presideni of that

uinly the right to say, that it is a duty of
consistency and logic lor the people of the
United states to recognize the declaration of
the independence of Hungary as an existing
law, us the only existing public law of my
poor down-trodden country. That ia what
I expect to find here : and whatever be ihe
declaration of your Government in that re
spect, I know that I have the honor to be in
a country where the sovereign is not the
Government, but the People, great cheer
ing and where every man in office must
be the representative of that direction which
ihe publ ic spirit of the people takes, and it
is therefore, that I thank you even more for
your kindness, in having named me "Gov
ernor of Hungary;" because b.y this you
have paid the tribute of n'tl acknowledgment
of the declaration of Independence of my
native land. Cheers.
As lo the praises which Vou were so kind
as io bestow upon me, it is no affectation of
r.iouesty in me when 1 declare, that 1 am
not concioui of having any merit at all, but
only that of being a plain, straight-forward
man a faithful friend of freedom, a good pat

gentlemen, are so natural to every honest
man with understanding, with a sound heirt
can be'anyihing else than a good patriot

Bui yet after all, my bumble capacity has
not preserved me from calumnies. I can

not much, therefore, aboil sheee calumnies.
Scarcely had 1 arrived hr when 1 was Ibid
that I. was charged here in the United States
with being an irreligious man. Now gentle
men, that it sacred ground, and I am some

nevertheless say mat, as a good Christian,
whose first moral principle '"love thy neigh

who charges mo with being an Irreligious

hands with him, addressed him in the follow
ing words:
Noble Magyar! Illustrious Kossuth, we
greet you from the Western World ! Wel
come to tho land of freedom in speech snd
in action. Welcome to the American Re
public, which demonstrates successfully to
the world ihe capacity of man for self-guv
ernmem. Welcome, thrice welcome to our
infant country; the hope and trust of ihe
friends of liberty inl-very nation and cliinu.
and which riss as a memento to the world
and to the lovers of freedom, of what Re
publican principles can i erfnrm.
You come not as a stranger among us,
for from the pine forests of Maine to the
canes of Texas, from the coal fields of Punn-
itylvania to the golden regions of California,
and in all that wide spread country which
is washed on one side by the waves of th
briny Atlantic, and nn ihe other by the calm
waters of the Pacific, your name is known.
St will be a passport to every heart every
one will be open to receive you, nnl your
coming will be the signal for the uprising of
20,000,000 or people who will give you a
cordial heartfelt and enthusiastic welcome,
i: Governor: In your late desperate strug
gle for the liberty of your own beloved na
tive country, for the rights of your brother
Hungarians, tho" American people took a
deep, it solemn interest. Although a broad
ocean rolled between your land and mine,
and although your battle grounds were afar
off, still your movements were watohed
with the greatest interest and your success
were greeted with the most enthusiastic joy;
and and were borne on oor electrified shores
with the swiftness of lightning, and' looked
to with such ueiignt.tnat iney excueu tne
highest degree of enthusiasm, and filled the
American people with great hopes.' When
we found that you were unsuccessful, we
did not forimi you, but animated with the

on a scheme to set you free,

When you' are free ! We thank God you

To Governor Kossuth, of Hungary
The passengers on the Humboldt are nm
prepossessed in favor of the Magyar as he
has been what ihey call too aristocratic for
them, but as we learned he was much occu
pied in composition during the passage, it is
probuble that he was too much occupied in
mental labor au fait in conversation with
every one who aspired to his acquaintance.
Kossuth is a good looking man. about five
feet seven or eight inches in height, and
with groat expression of feature. Uis eye
is all intelligence, and his brow, though not
so broaJ as it has been represented on many
of his portraits, lowers up to an extreme
height, and is somewhat expansive. lie
appears to be a slim man, ritlhurthun full in
the chest, as often portrayed, and, as is the
custom of his country, he weurs a beard
and mustaehios which cover the lower p-irt
of his fuce.
His hands are very small, and his cos
tume, when he arrived, wus ihe simple un
adorned dress of his country, iha great coat,
the Hungarian hat, with its f -other and dang
ling tassals. Allege; hdr hd ha is command
ing figure, and ihe first impr ssion which
would strike an intelligent pers n on look
ing nt him, would be one of respect, on ac
count of ihe intelligence and philosophical
appearance of his whnln nxti-ri ir man. '
