The party left Marlborough House in carriages at 6 o'olock for Eaaton Station. At the station the Duke of Cambridge was among the first to shake the Prinoe by the hand, and it was with difficulty that the few policemen on duty prevented those assembled upon the platform from crowding upon his Royal Highness. A lady presented the Prinoess with a handsome bouquet. When her Royal Highness, answering the popular manifestations, was seen bowing her acknowledgments, there were repeated and deafening cheers from the dense throng. The Prince seemed greatly gratined,and,while passing through the lane of bystanders, stretching from the outer limits of the station to the platform, where bis train awaited him, he made continuous salutation. The Prince, in the minute at his disposal, entered into conversation with his friends who stood near the saleon carriage. As the train moved off the Prince and Princess stood at £ he doorway returning tbe salutations of the assem- blage. The train containing the Royal travellers reached Rugby, the first stopping place, at two I minutes past 8, and stayed the allotted five minutes. His Royal Highness stood in the opeu earriage doer converting with Lord Richard Ctrosvenor part of the time, and then took his eeat. As the train steamed out a number of peeple, assembled on the platform, gave salutations, friush their Royal Highaeeees acknowledged. Ai Cftwe the Prince of Wales got out of the train, and went into the refreshment room for a minute. There was a large number of people on the platform, Who gave their Koyal Highnesses a cheer as the train left. During the remainder of the journey increased srecautions were taken for the safety of the train. Holyhead was reached at 12.15, and almost imm«- diately their Royal Highnesses embarked on beard the Royal yacht Osborne, which had been brought from her moorings into the outer harbour, and swung alongside the Admiralty Pier Jetty. RECEPTION IN DUBLIN. The Royal yaoht Osborne, with the Prinoe and princess of Wales and Prinoe Albert Victor on board, tailed from Holyhead soon after daybreak on Wed. nesday morning. About 11 o'clock a Royal salute fired by the Channel Fleet, which went to Kingstown specially for this occasion, gave notioe of the arrival of the Royal yaoht, which, piloted by one of the mail-boats of the City of Dublin Steam Packet Company, took up her moorings at the Carlisle Pier. The Prinoe and Princess of Walee were soon descried standing on the main deck, and were most enthusiastically cheered. The guard of honour of the Highland Light Infantry presented arms and the band played the National Anthem, the Prinoe and Princess meanwhile acknowledging with evident pleasure the hearty wel- como accorded to them. The people assembled on the Carlisle Pier cheered the Royal visitors again and again, and the crowds in the distance re-echoed this enthusiastic welcome. Their Royal Highnesses, on landing, were received by the Lord Lieutenant and a distinguished company. Replying to an addrese from the Town Commissioners, the Prince said he hoped this would not be the last visit they would pay to a country where they had always been welcomed with kindness and hospitality. n-i arriving by train in Dublin their Royal Highnesses were greeted enthusiastically by a con- siderable crowd at the station, and an address wa- presented by the Dublin Chamber of Com- merce. The Prince, in reply, said he would convey to the Queen their expressions of d"To- ti 1)11 and attachment. The furtherance of the welfare cf all classes, his Royal Highness added, was an object dear to him, and he trusted that the efforts of the Commission on the Dwellings of the Poor would tend to their improvement. The kindness with which the citizens had received him encouraged him to look forward to his visit to a country where cour'eFy and hospitality were the characteristics of thy people. The Royal party were then driven, escorted by a troop of cavalry, through Linooln- place, Leinster-street, Nassau-street, Grafton. stree:, College-green, and Dame-street, to the Castle. All along the route the streets were thronged, and the people were most hearty in then demonstrations of welcome. At every window numbers of spectators were to be seen, and their ch eis lu the waving of handkerchiefs, and the general enthusiasm, were things never to be forgotten t. thv, ho witnessed them. The decorations t i; c. rtiie principal streets were very striking &t t handsi me, and among the various incriptions, Weic to Denmark's Pair Daughter," was con- spicuous in several places. In the afternoon the } ;r.c-3 and Princess visited the show of the Royal Dublin Agricultural Society, where his Royal Kigin.ess replied to another address. Their Koyal Highnesses remained at the show about at. and a half, and after a brief inspec- of the Dog Show they re-entered their en Triage* for return to the Castle, the route taken this time being through Elgin-road, Clyde- roxd, L pper and Lower Leeson-streets, Ste, hen s- green, East and North Dawson, Nassau, and ( rafton-streets, College-green, and Dame-street.
