NEW YOIIK, Feb. 12.—The French lino dock was the scene of great rejoicing from the curliest hours Tuesduy morning.

Joy or Wutcin;; 1-rlujnln. Tho joy of thu waiting- crowd over the news' of their friends' safety bubbled over- and infected all those who visited tho dock for business or from curiosity, Tho officers of the company were (jbligcd to stretch a chain across the entrance to the dock shed Tuesday mornin'g. so great was the rush to go on tho pier. Everyone admitted had to show evidence that he had friends on board the belated steamship. The distinguishing 1 characteristic of ull was the feeling of happiness that showed in every look and action. Half a dozen policemen from the; steamboat squud stood inside the shed entrance to help the company's officers. Other policemen stood outside, to help control the crowds. At U o'clock there were about 300 persons grouped about the entrance unable to gut on the dock. They had been there all morning and BCt'ined determined to wait until La Guscogne arrived, if necessary all .day. Two tugs were putting and blowing in the slip on the north side of the French line dock, churning up the water in an effort to drive Out the large quantity of ice. so us to make an unsy entrance for the expected steamship.

Tho iee in the Narrows reached from. shore to shore, and the long-delayed liner loomed up, high-sided and red-funnelccl, in the' midst of the grinding ice cake,, The stcnmer looked very little worse, for wear after her protracted trip. She was not iced up like most of the other steamers that have arrived since the blizzard. One of her boats was damaged, but all the deck gear was in place. It was just 10:00 when the crowd on tho end of tho pier sent out a cheer that jiniioiiuucd the arrival of tnc ship. Those outside the clock shed took up nnd repeated the cheer, although they could not sco anything but a sea of hands and plumed bonnets iu front of ther... Cheers for tho Cn.pl uin. It was 11:30 when she was in place. Cnpt. liiiudelon stood by the gangway on the main deck and directed things. The crowd hailed him with three cheers and then some one asked: "What's the matter with BaudelouV" There was .-I mighty response: "lie's all right." The, gang plank was in place at U:40 end the captain himself was the first man to laud. Tho Ciiptaln'n Kopnrt. £S3 Capt. Baudelon made a hasty report to Agent Forget iu substance follows: '•On the third day out the piston rod broke.

"On the fourth and fifth days out we had to change the bearings of the crank ulmft and this caused a delay oi forty hours and during that time we bad a hurricane and a. barometer of 726. Since then we have had heavy west winds and were obliged to reduce speed to S knots; the crank shaft working all right. We mot no steamer going cither way till yesterday, when we spoke an American line steamer for Philadelphia, and' iciade her acquainted with our plight Though we met the roughest kind ot weather after the breakdown, yet we were able to reach port without any assistance." Uujr» for tho Second OUtrer. The second officer of the ship was seized at the end of the gang-plank by a dozen ladies, all of whom attempted to hug and kiss him at once. It waa>. impossible to learn whether or not they .were relatives and apparently it did luot matter much. Every passenger that landed was pounced upon by a dozen or more and for a time was in greater danger of suffocation than lie was of drowning on the voyage. Clibin P»s»eiiK«>r» landed.
