When thev had finished the table

room, where Mr. F. Y. Anderson, in
an enormous powdered wig, knee
breeches, a ruttled shirt and Prince
Albert coat, presided as master, being
assisted by Mrs. Gibert Kaine. The
pitch was given with a tuning fork
and a number of songa, which woke
tender memories in the hearts of the
old people, were delightfully sung by
a bevy of young ladies in short
waisted frocks and hate with flaring
brims, and young gentlemen in
wigs, spike-tail coats and knee
breeches. The class was composed of

A TALK WITH CORRIGW.
THE OIED U RF3UVS VIEW OF
Uood Work of the Flyers at th,
Track Sport on the Mobile
As the time of the opening rf the
spring races draws nearer, intenst in
crease, snd it becomes more likely
every day that the city will be crowded
with strangers during tne week, i ne
club-houne is in apple-pie ordor, and
a good deal nf interest is felt in the
bouse warming soon to take place.
At the track tbe scene is of the live
liest description. The latest hortes to
come in were M. E Clark's Fore t and
Rock, both in good condition. Sime
ot the performances on the track dur
ing the pan tew days wete exceeding
ly good. Pearl Jennings covered a
mile a day or two since in 1 :16J.
Jim Uray is said to be a bit rusty
by the Memphis quidnunc?s of rac
ing, bnt he is coming on nicely all the
same. Take his gallop of Moudaylaat
a a sample. The quarter, '.'8 seconds;
half, 6tiJ; three-quarters, 1 mile,
1:49; mil snl a quarter, 2:1SJ; mile
and a half, 2:47).
A hat With Orrlaan.
St. Louis Republican: Ed Corrigan
nrsied through fie city yesteiday cn
hia way from Memphis to Kama
City, where, however, he remains for
but a oriel stity, s ne is anxious to re
join his botses. He goes back by t' e
snort route, and we probably shah not
see him in St. Louis again Lefor.i our
Juno meeting. Mr. Coirgan is no
green racing hand who gives away
very much of the doings of bis stable,
but he always bas a bit of interesting
and fresh gitsip about it oultide of the
doing of its individual horses, and
now and again lie will even talk about
some of these, and on the occasion of
tl U visit there was no exception on
his part to this practice. He antici
pates a really great meeting st Mem
phis, where," he says, are collected a
lot of the best horses in America.
Never, savs Mr. Corrigan, haB be
seen, early in April, so many horsts
together whe could, and did, covtr
their miles, on any morning, in times
between 1 :48 and 1 :60. No cup horse
down South has, in M Coriigan's
opinion, done eo well aa Editor, who,
however, may perhaps be a trifle over
lorwa'd, ts he is tit to race for big
stakes to-day. If the gray is the washy
horse in hot weather that his detract
ors claim him to be he will stale be
fore he gets to business, bnt the Kan
sas Citv turfman evidently fancies
him vastly, even with that considera
tion thrown in. Many of the horses
now at Memphis are si far forward
that they could show a mile In 1:44
on a track like ours was last June.
Mr. Corrieau looks upon Jim Gray aa
perhaps tho most promising thre
vear-old at Men. phis, but he has no
Viioh nnininn of the voungsters of that
; . . . - " 1 - , .
aie down Hontn in general, inuaeu,
he claims to nave uiiea to cast eyes
upon anything quite np to trdinary
Derby form. He had a sneaking flec
tion some time since for hia brother
IVs cilt, Free Knight, ! r tne great
Kentucky atuir, nut a ensnge una
tome over ttio spirit oi mn urram
soet 0"g thi-t he has pi sssu tne con
over to the trnininj: charge of Henry
Avis. Free Knight ts t ig ana msty,
but is going thtougU by 1 .r too light
work forailerby preparation, ami u
is ftVKlPliI U;H'. HB ll-r as no is uuu-
cerned Mr.Conigau Is Gidlio-like, and
will bave none of him. This leaves
the green and whits with no Darbv
horse bnt the lolloping and untried J.
B. Ferguson and the fillies Hattie Car
lileand Mary Payne. The two yrar
nlda at Momnhts and Nashville are,
Mr. Coirlgsn thinks, more promising
tb .n their seniors of a year, snd quits
a uctt of them have shown quarlura
well ucder twenty-live. In rejaru to
hia own stab'e the victim of the Inter
view which furnished matter for thesj
no'es was most sensibly very oy. tar
like, and it requirad the fl ourishing of
twoletttrj Just receiver! irom oiera
nhiatoiret nim to acknowledge any
thing. However, he at last pleaded
uuiltv to the rreeland accusation
hurled at him. The great horse is not
la-nfl in the stitle-ioint. as stated in
yesterday's Mumvlix liefmblican, but
in the off hip. the seat of
pprinllN trouble with him last fall
The crack points the toe of tho off
hind foot as he pule it to tbe grouud
or as he stands in the stable and he
bears none of his weight on its frog or
heel. These symptoms read to the
writer more like hock than hip
trouble, but, whatever it may be, it
ilrten nnt. Ann nd like a uood start in
any preparation for a great race for
Freeland, Mr. CorriRan does not say
rh ahniit Mode tv or Poarl Jen
nines, both of whom may therefore be
lultrred to oe going ou uicoiy u i"'
ilue.l tliu rem rt of a salloo of tl.e hit

.hows her to be fl'tingfast. L'zzin
Dver's eu gives her owner great
.nrimv and. thniiith Mr. Corrigan
lna nnt think that her runaways did
her serious damage, yet the parboiling
of the big leg goes on nigra anu uay
and to be or not to be will be a burn
ing (or scaldim) question with her
until she has been taken charge of by
the starter for the Suburban.
