THE ENTHUSIASM OF THE PEOPLE to the vicinity of tba Academy of Muaio waa Inteaae At ao public ball In thia city waa there ever congregated ?a laamaaaa a crowd. From the well known alte of Wash hsgton's statue, near Union aqnare, to the d ?r? of the Academy there waa aa aathualaatlo crowd assembled from aevea o'clock until the Prince and bla anlta arrived. Such a ooaooaraa of oarrtagea baa never on any ooeaaton been aaea ta New York. It muat gratify the noble Queen of fogland^Rb know that thia waa a ' direct tribute of lore and reapect for heraelf, and af honor aad affection for her first bora eon. The paa , aage of the oarrtagea from the square to the main doora of the Academy oecupled more than three houre, the drlvera ' tosh lag aa aa furtonaly aa clrcnmatanoea would permit.

The ladlea were drcaaed In huea aa varied aa the rainbow, aad tba beauty that they presented aa they bopped Into the ballroom waa a eight that would have gratified the alalia of the dullest philosopher in the world. For more than three hoora the carriages came rolling" up, whilst the gaily dreaaed fairies tripped pleasantly np to the principal door. Such a ruah aa there was for priority of entrance baa never been aaea a lace the Academy of Moalc ha* bees erected. The crowd collected about the place waa very quiet. Mot the allghteet disturbance occurred to mar thetlfect of the proceedings, and It muat be stated that the police force, under the direction of Superinten dent Kennedy himself, did their duty aa ably aad aa faithfully aa they could be discharged.

THE FLORAL DISPLAY. an avalanche or rLowmw? BODQi-rre pob thi I-K.Nii TUK1K LANULAOE, KRAdHANCS AND BEACTY? NEW YOKE GIVES A POET'S WELCOME. The unprecedented floral display whioh Now York has witnessed for the last two or three days, In connection with the visit of hli Royal Highness, has beeu such as to warrant a particular and special chronicle. The pathway of the Prlnoe, since his arrival la New York, has been literally strewn with Sowers, and those of the most beautiful and ooetly which oould bs procured at this season. The private apartments at the fifth Are nac Hotel occupied by his Royal Highness and suite, In addition to the elegant manner In which they are fur nished, are redolent of fresh flowers anil radiant with their beauty. On the centra table la tba private parlor stands a very bandsoaie pyramidal bouquet, oompoaed of Korea of various shades of color, Tuberoses, Hello tropes, Jasmins and soma few other kinds. Opposite the door of the parlor is a large stand covering the register, completely covered with rare and ooetly plants. Wa noticed Marantas, Caladlums, Oa/ nations, Croloos, and the large leafed and variegated Begonias, of which there were at leas', six varieties. In general, eaoh flower had several family rslatlaes , thus, for lastanoe, there were at least three varieties of Caladlums. and two or three of Crotons. lntertpcrscJ among them were soma One speol mens of the Jostlcla Oaracasana Major, In bloom; the Dicffenbnchla Plcta, the Cyrttaanthera Magntflca and others. Ilia stand upon which the flowers ore placed Is handsomely bordered with a deep fringe, over which trails tba Dloaoorea Dis color. The dumUt of this little floral display li very hand rme. The corridors are ornamented at regular Intervals with Camellas and Orange trees, bearing fruit; and the admirable manner la which everything Is arranged Is very creditable to Mr. Bridgman, whoso duty It Is to sup ply flowers to the royal apartmenta. The floral display at the Academy was truly magnia cent. Countless flower pots with their odorous frelghj, In eadlcs variety, tilled up a great part of the space) known j as the dress circle. We cannot possibly enumerate all the plants and floaera wc saw. There was a coamopoit tan gathering of tho brightest sad moat beautiful from all quarters of the g'.obe. Tbiro was no corner of tbe , earth? unlers tt be tbe frozen regions of tbe north ?that bad sot Its representative In the clusters that shone from tbe eighty or one hundred large, handsoma vases ' wh: b ornamented tbe proscenium, Independently of tho myriad of .lower pots of a more bomei) kind.
