Horses-Rothschild's Chestnut Coll the
The following telegram, dated London. May
24, gives an Interesting account ol the Derby
day, and many particulars of the race, omitted
in the brief dispatches already published:
Derby day has come with Its usual spirit
and incident. The House.of Lords is ernpiy;
the House ol Commons adjourned. Business
generally, in London, is suspended, and the
city is emptied ol so much ol* it? population
that a stranger might imagine it smitten with
the plague The weather is delightful. Never?
theless, everybody is armed with Maointosh,
or umbrella, as a precaution ag.iinst the rain,
so proverbially an incident ol the occasion,
while veils about the hats guard against the
absolutely certain dust.
At an early hoar we take the northwestern
turnpike, and ar? on the road in an endless
procession of carriages, private and public, ot
stages? ol' busses, ot vans, of carts-from the
aristocratic six-la-hand, with a nuble marquis
handling the ribbons, and delicately and skil?
fully touching with his lash the flank of the off
leader^o the donkey-cart, with motive Dower
equal to a medium dog and a. freight of six se?
lect costermoDgers. Dust ! We caunot see, we
can hardly breathe for it. It darkens ihe lovely
English landscape; turns the hawthorn hedges
and their perfumed blossoms into dreary earth?
works: lies like volcanic ashes on ihe turf for
a hundred yards away; fills the lungs to suffo?
cation; irritates our eyes; vexes our tempers.
The long'cavalcade is-suddenly arrested. The
matter ? A buss ls vfpset, or ihe wheel is off a
costermong?r'8 family coach. Who cares ? The
debris ia cleared* awav, and on goes tho flying
procession. A HtUe less dust: we have simck
sand; our weary nags drag heavily through
it. Hurrah ! the grand stand, with Its' slan
dard and streamers. Gomes Into sight over the
plain. We are on Epsom Downs. ""Greatly, .fa?
vored* we have a place lor our turn-out within
the ring; and having quarrelled for it, and ex
Eerienced much blasphemy In gaining it. we
ave leisure and composure to brush off the
upper strata of dust irom coat and hat, and
look about us.
The horizon is, it must be owned, narrow.
Between us and the winning post ls a family
carriage filled with a remarkably :all family ol'
Yorkshire folks. If we are to see at all we
must make our way to the Grand Stand. This
vast structure is already rilled. The front
seats, reserved for the lamilies of the mem?
bers ol the jockey club, are overflowing with
the bluest blood ot the three kingdoms. At
the outer door Policeman X tells "us that the
last inch overhead ls occupied. Through
much suffering and perspiration, nevertheless,
we press onward, until forcibly ejected, so to
speak, into ihe upper air, where, though
much flattened and altogether exhausted, we
can at least breathe and see.
And what a sight ! All England is here.
Who cen doutt it ? Royalty and nobility are
close under our noses; the crush and flutter of
aristocracy about us; we care nothing for these
things, but gaze in wonder at the picture be
fortrns. A natural amphitheatre1, a mile, per?
haps, In diameter, "he slope ls alive with
dense masses ol' humanity. Estimates 01
.crowds always err, but see the thousand acres
taken up as a bivouac for horses and ''traps.''
See yonder gipsy camp; foptune-ielling ls the
order of the day. Hear, foryou cannot choose
bul hear, the clamor of men and women sell?
ing yo;i the -'card" or programme of the race.
Hear, also, those other respectably dressed
gents who stun you with offers ol' the "'correct
tip of the Derby/' or those other spectators
who stand ready to give or take ruinous odds
on every event ol the day That man lu u

quis ol Gaunt, is a Cabinet minister; they have

corded their.wager. Yonder is H. R. H. the

Rbody diligently consults his card to iden

bends over to see them return>galn and again
from false starts lo resume Wt line. At last
they tire off. The excitemenFis almost uneii

second place between King of the Forest and
Albert Victor. The winner "belongs to Baron
Rothschild, who has, alter twenty years' fruit?
less endeavors, at last attained his great ob?
ject of ambition, the winning of the coveted
Blue Riband of ihe turf. The winner, which
is better known as the Zephyr Colt than by
his newly-given name of Favonius, never run
as a two-year old; his first appearance being
in the Biennial slakes, at the New-Market
Craven me-etlug ihis sj. ring, where he ran
second, and was beaten a.head only by Albert
Victor. His grand apnearance and perlect
action gained him a host of lriends after tlrnt
perlormance, because it was knoivn he could
be vastly improved for the Derby, and the
?ioweiful and influential stable to which he be
ongs backed him to win a very large stak*\
and which has been safely landed.
Wells was the jockey of Rothschild's colt.
Morris of Albert Victor, and Snowden of the
King of the Forest. The betting just previous
to the start was 9 to 1 against the winner, 4 io*
1 against Albert Victor,' and 12 to 1 against
King of ihe Forest.
King ol ihe Forest, who run a dead heat for
second place, is a bay colt by Scottish Chief,
(alf Ascot cup winner) out of Lioness, winne?
of the Cresarwitch, and belongs to Mr. Merry.
Last season, as a two-year-old, he won S19,1C5
in stakes, being only beaten twice in the
races. His first appearance was at Epsom, lu
the Stanfield Stakes, where he was beaten a
head by Bicycle, eight starting. He won Ihe
Queen's Stand Plate, at Ascot in a canter from
Perfume, at a difference of thirty-two pounds
for the year, with Digby Grand third, ami the
Triennial Stakes ut me same meeting. At
Newcast!e-on-Tync he won the Seaton D?livrai
Stakes from lour other?. Al Stockbridge he
won ihe Biennial Slakes lroni seven opponents
by a neck, Cricklade beiug second, and tw >
days afterward was beaten by a neck by
Digby Grand for the Motlisl'oril Stakes, Hie
latter receiving seven pounds. At Goodwood
he won ihe Findon Stakes, bealing Kipponden
and Ave others, and the next day won the
Bentwick Memorial Makes lrom three others.
At Stockton he won the Lambton Plate by u
head only lrom Mlle, de Mallloc. At Don?
caster lie won the Champagne Stakes by a
head only from Ripponden aud three others.
This was his last appearance as a two-year
old. This year he suited the first favorite for
lh<* 2000 guineas, but could only gain third
place to Bothwell (the winner) and Sterling.
Albert Victor ls a chestn'it colt by Marsyas
out ol Princess of Wales, and belongs to Mr.
Cartwright. He run three times asa two
year old, winning twice. On his first appear?
ance, In the Reaalug stakes, he was beaten by
three-quarters of a length, in a field of seven,
by Lizzy Cowl, being then raw and unprepared.
At the Mew Market second October meeling.
he won the Middle Park plate from a field ol
sixteen opponents, among which were Both?
well, the 2000 guineas winner; Hannah, the
1000 guineas victress, and others. He won nt
lbj? New Market Houghton meeting, the houie
bwcl slakes, beating Kipponden a:ul three
others, and then retired for the season. This
spring he has only run once, for the biennial
stakes at tho New Market Craven meeting
which he won, the Zephyr colt, who has now
reversed -their positions, being second lo him,,
beaten by a heiid only.
AX EArtTB QUAKE IS SEW TO BK
A shock ol an earthquake was felt in New"
York State on Sunday morning, at half-past 1
o'clock, ut Rochester, Syracuse, and other
la Syra:use persons were' awakened from
sleep by the rattling of doors and windows,
the swaying of beds and jarring of crockery.
The Journal says it was a milder visitation ot
this somewhat rare phenomenon in thie part Df
the.world than that of last, year, or the one cf
about three years ago. there was a succes?
sion of tremors and quaking?, perhaps a dozen
in number, which, in their effects upon loose
window sashes, produced noises somewhat
like the dicking of telegraph operators. In
some instances~whole (amines were aroused
by what was supposed ta botl?e jarrim: of
floors, window and dcors by the walking ol a
heavy person, and in some cases it was sup?
posed that a sudden gust of wind bad rattled
the window,, untii it was discovered that not
a breath of air was stirring.
The shock was also felt at Hie village of
. Charlotte, on Lake Ontario. It lasted several
seconds, ind was so distinct as to leave no
doubt ot its character. Several persons were
aroused from their slumbers by the shock.
Doors swung on their binges and sashes rat?
tled in their lrarnes. One uenlleman, a well
kuown lake captain, was awakened by the dis?
turbance. He describes the sensation he ex?
perienced as he was aroused like that of being
on his bjat in rough water. A door to his room
swung on Its hinges. A son who slept in a
chamber was awakened by the noise. The
captain repaired to Stuts?n's hotel in the
morniug and said- nothing there about the
earthquake till one after another came in and
repoued it. There is no doubt whatever of the
correctness of the statements iuade. The Ro?
chester Union says the shock was felt at Mount
Hope anil vicinity. Houses and .everything in
them were shaken so violently as t<> awaken
persons who were asleep. A lout! noise, like
the flrln:;of%distant artillery, accompanied the
convulsion. The movement; was seemingly
horizontal-a swaying from right to Iel'. The
shock waa also felt in Buffalo.and in varioio
towns in Wayne County.
The earthquake also passed through Canada.
The Toronto Globe says:
. The duration of the shock varied from a
few seconds to two minutes, apparently in-1
creasing in intensity as it travelled eastward
that being the direction it took-Judging from
the time at which the disturbances are re?
ported to have occurred. No serious conse
queuces followed the earthy rocking in any
place. The shock appears to have been most
severely felt in part'ol the Niagara District,
and about the ancient capital; though in some
other to?fns the affrighted people "for a few
minutes expected to instantly witness the de?
molition of their homes. The quakimr is gene?
rally described as having been accompanied
by a noine resembling the sound of rushing
waters, cr of a lightning express train. In
Montreal the earthquake was lollowed by some
curious phenomena, the thermometer rising
to eighty degrees, and the next day bel?ir
dark and gloomy, aa if there was an eclipse bf
In Hamilton the shock was felt about 1
o'clock, ttnd a writer in the Hamilton Times,
who was lying in bed reading at the moment
of the tr<;mor, says he was astounded to find
the bed shaking under him, the doors and
windows convulsively agitated, while the
paper he held in his hand shook like the aspen
leaf. A loud, rumbling noise, as of the pass?
ing ol a heavily laden wagon, was heard, and
indeed the house shook as it a violent storm
raged without. Gelting up and putting his
heud out of the window, he was astonished lo
find that scarcely a breath ol' wind prevailed.
The shock, he says, lasted nearly a minute.
Looking at his wiitch, be lound it was 1.05
Much alarm wa?! excited in Ottawa. The
Free Press describes the shock and its effects
as follows: "The motion was so violently
felt that houses trembled and windows rat?
tled to such an extent as to alarm a great
many persons. Along the north shore of the
Ottawa, extending northeastwardly, the
shock was even mor eviolent than in the city,
and it awakened the soundest, sleepers by the
trembling of the earth. We have not heard
any person say that the shock was accompa?
nied by the rumbling noise that is usually
heard on such occasions/'

..The Hermit in New York" writes lo the
There are about four hundred practicing
deutlsts in New York, and one-quarter of that
number in Brooklyn, allot whom find employ?
ment, while some are driven by their engage?
ments. "The Parmlys are the most noted Inmi
lies in this profession, and consists ol Eleazer,
lin: oldest, and four brothers. Eleazer (now
retired) is the richest dentist io America, and
is worth i million, most of which he made iu
real estate. He is now about eighty, and is a
man, of great piety and benevolence. The
Parmlys ire all Yankees, and have the fresh
manners, as well as the virtues ol New Eng?
land. Thirty years ago, when the writer vi as
a poor cterk, he went to Eleazer Parmly to get
his teeth repaired. The benevolent dentist

high for you, but go to my brother Samuel, he
will do the work for hall my price, and dy it
justas wcll."T followed the advice, and am
uow using a tooth which yoting Parmly filled
with gokl in 1841. One of the leading men in
the profession is Dr. E. J. Downinir. He has
practiced thirty years, and ls now at the aile
of fifi y io Ute fullness ol'success, and probably
makes an income of $30,000. Another is Dr.
W. H. Atkinson, who is about forty-seven, and
has i nacl iced twenty years, reaching an in?
come which may be estimated at $15,000, He
is now a professor of dental science. One ot
the veterans of the profession ls Dr.. John.
Allen. He reached success in Cincinnati, aud
came ?rom that place twenty years ago. He is
now about sixty, and probably makes ?l 5.000
a year. His chief tlislinction is the discovery
ol gum work, and he has spent a fortune iii
cotitestirg the claim with Dr. Hunter. Dr. W.
H. Dwlnaell is another distinguished man. He
is now in the neighborhood of fllty-five, thirty
?ears of which nave been spent in practice.
He enjoys an iucome of $20,000, and has a
number iif opulent patieuls who are reads to
pay him any price that he may suggest. 'Dr.
Dwinnel. has probably received heavier fees
ihan any other operator. His price for filling
a tooth in lroin $20 to $140, which he considers
reasonable when Hie value of his time is reck?
oned, hie has been paid ?2000 for cleaning

NEW YORK,-May 27.
- Foster, the murderer, lies at hist in? the
condemned cell in the Tombs, weeping and
wailing over the fate which, until th's time, he
has not seemed to realize. While sentence
was being pronounced his stoicism gave way,
and he sobbed piteously, unnerving the.judge
himseli,and throwing the kind-hearted lawyer,
who defended the case Into a paroxysm of
tears. The wile ol the condemned man sat by
his side, aod bunted when the solemn lnvoca
-tion to Heaven-''May God have mercy .ca
your soul"-was pronounced. Foster's only
words were: "I was very drunk that night,
and I did not know what I was doing. I did
not intend to kill Mr. Putnam."
When he was being removeoVfrom the court?
room to a carriage, the immense mob which
bad collected around the door hissed, and there
were cries of -'Lynch him !" The impressive
?lesson is not to be-io&t on the lower strata of
society. One ol the Father Matthew Total Ab?
stinence, Societies issues a call for a meeting,
in the morning papers, with these startling
head lines : ''Another Triumph Over Rtfm
Take the Pledge and Avoid the Doom of Fos?
ter." Although the jury compromised with
their feelings by recommending Foster to mer?
cy, it ls not probable that the Governor will
heed* the appeal. Something must be done to
strike terror iuto the nrffl?ns of New York:
They are so seldom punished that they laugh
at justice. Foster will be banged on Friday,
Onr criminal classes have been enjoying
another piize fight sensation, but unexpected
misiortu ,e has oome upon' the feliows who
undertook to entertain them. One of the
pugilists was an Englishman, the other an
irishman. They wem out upon Long Island,
attended by several thousand thieves and
rowdies, and pitched a ring, but they had been
so closely followed by the New York police
tina th?y Just bad time to scamper away and
hide themselves. Havinggiveu the police the
slip, they met in the alternoon, aud for several
hours they pounded each other until their
heads and bodies were almost shapeless.
Night closed inion an undecided contest, and
it was resolved! lo resume it lu the morning.
The-iighters came slyly to the city to get their
wounds dressed, but ?be- indefatigable police
were aller them again, and they were both
arrested, with their trainers and backers, at
low drinking dens.
To-day they are to be Hr'tetl at the Tombs
Court, and as they will be convicted, they will
go to the Slate prison for a year. This ls short
work; at the trainers' quarters, in the ring, and
cracking stoues in. the prison garb, ^il inside
ol three days. While the fight was in progress
on Long Island, hourly bullelins were posted
in front'of many of the afternoon newspaper
offices, and exciled greater luterest than the
tidings of the burning and slaughter in Paris.
? One newspaper boasts ot having sold one huh
I tired and sixty thousand copies'to the news
I boys 4o the course of four hours.
Another stupendous enterprise for the im?
provement ol New York is to be inaujturaied
on Monday. The directors of the viaduct rail?
way wid meet In the Governor's room at the
' Cily Hall and organize. Plans will be adopted
and the work given out. The viaduct road
will run from the Dalt cry to Harlem; there
will be several tracks, and fast and slow pas?
senger trains will be propelled by steam. The
calculation is to take a passenger from the City
Hall to Harlem in fifteen minutes, the actual
time now consumed in the transit being an
hour. Twenty millions of dollars will be ex?
pended in constructing the road and buying
the right-of-way. Among the directors are one
ot ihe Astor?, Alex. T. Stewart, Moses Taylor,
and the tour chiefs of the Tammany ting:
Tweed, Sweeny, Connolly aud Hall So the
successful completion of the enterprise ls as?
By the year 1880 the metropolis will almost
be transformed. The great stone docks along
the North aud East Rivers will be under way;
the Viaduct Railway, the .Erial Railway ou
the west side, the Brooklyn Bridge and the
bridge lo New Jersey, will be finished; the
tunnels nuder the two rivers will probably
have been commenced; Central Park, in New
York, and Prospect Park, in Brooklyn, will
have received the projected improvements;
the new boulevard and porks at the upper end
ol the island will be laid out, and the magnifi?
cent new postoffice, and' possibly the new
courthouse, both in tne City Hall Park, will be
completed for business.
In addition to this, the clearing away of the
ugly rocks at Hell Gate may have a marked
effect unoo the topographical character ol the
city. Ir the ingress ol vessels by way of the
sonnd can be made sale, all the European and
Eastern shipping can save oue hundred mile-!
by laking that route over the other by the
way ol' Sandy Hook and the Narrows. The
consequences wouhf-be Unit the tipper eastern
end ot the island, from Harlem down, would
become the depot for the lmmetiB? foreign
business ot New York, and the quiet dwellings
of Ulai quarter, would have lo give place lo
warehouses. It is a mailer of speculation
about the etTect that these changes would have
on the lower part of Hie city. Possibly the
nabobs might return to thc Battery to live.
Broadway, as of yore, might again be lined
willi resiliences, ?iud Wall street become the
fashionable promenade. .
The spiritualists Ol New York.and vicinity
are preparing lor a mammoth picnic, tg come
(?If next month in a retired part, of Westches?
ter County. Believers In the flesh ?s well as
every one in ihe spirit who chooses to come,
are respectfully invited to be present and par
ticlpate in the* festivities. One who sees bul
the surlace of Northern society, would be as?
tounded lu know how wide-spread is the be?
lief in the spiritualistic pholosophy here. Judge
Edmonds, ol New York, who is the most con?
spicuous advocate of spiritualism in America,
es! imales the number of, believers at eleven
millions. As they are nearly all north of Ma?
son's and Dixon's line, this estimate would in?
volve one-lhird ol the inhabitants of the Norih.
Of these but a smail fraction are open and pro
I lessecl spiritualists. The judge claims that
! the vast majority who believe are pol disposed
yet lo face ihe ridicule with which an avowal
of their faith would be met by the world. .
The spiritualists are most numerous io New
England and the Western Slates. They have
a number ol periodical publications, their prin?
cipal organ being the B umer ol Light, which,
is issued in Boston, und has au enormous cir?
culation. One ol its features is the priming of
messages lrom people ia ihe "spirit world" to
their friends in tilt?. These messages usually
beiMU in mis style: : "I died ol' rapid consump?
tion In Boston yesterday afternoon, at. four
o'clock, and I have been permitted to corni'
back tu this circle to inform my (rienda that- I
am all righi and perfectly satisfied willi my
condition in this beautiful spirit world." These
messages purport to come I rora ?ill manner ol
people-from well known Biatesmen and di?
vines to common laborers and servant girls,
who are known only to a. few Irlends. The
conductor of the Banner of Light seances on
this side, is u Mr. William While, and on "Ihe
other sido"' the late Theodore Plirlwr. who oc?
casionally lakes au opportunity to rap the
Boston ministers over the knuckles.
Tlie advocates ol spiritualism admit that
their faith has but lew adherents in the South,
but ihey predict that it is going to spread with
amflzing rapidity, now that the war and the
abolition ol' "slavery"' have cleared the way.
Whether -they are "bulling" a delusion ar not,
it is certain "that some very prominent indi?
viduals here and lu Europe have recently
avowed their belief in ll, or rather in the
theory that an intelligence exists outside of
any known laws of nature, whioh is. proba?
bly, that ol the spirits of disembodied human
beings, and that these spirits have at last dis?
covered a means ol making their Identity
manifest to their Iriends and acquaintances
who are yet in this life. Among the must re
snectable American spiritualists are Judge
Edmonds, Robert Dale Owen, iale Minister to
Naples, and Proft-ssor Gunning; and among
ihe English are William Howlti and his wife,
Professor Varley, the electrician of Atlantic
cable renown, and Proiessor*Wallace, the emi?
nent scientist, who shares with Darwin the
distinction of having given to the world the
new theory about the origin of man.
..Thesales of spiritualist books foot np* roil
.Jions of copies annually. "The leading writer
'in this department is Andrew Jackson Davis,
who lives but a lew miles from this city, and
who "reels off reams of the most idiotic trash.
He has actually succeeded in locating the
spiritual heavens, which, according to his ac?
count, begin a short distance lrom our south
pole ?nd extend beyond the sun. He also
lurnishes a map of the "Summer Land," as he
calls it, with its rivers, mountains and cities,
accurately laid down. Davis's income from
his books must be $100.000 pei; annum. All
our larger Northern cities swarm with jne
diuijs, clairvoyants and spiritual doctors, who
do a thriving business. A medium orr Sixth
avenue has opened a postofflce, through
which leite rs may be sent to people In the
spirit-world and answers received, the post?
age is $5.* and the business, luckily ior the
postmaster, very heavy. ' NTH.

TEE MURDERED ARCHBISHOP. .
A Sketch of his Career. .
George ' Darboy, Archbishop o? Paris, who
has been sacrificed to the Insane fury ol the
Paris mob, was a prelate-of great eminence in
the Roman Catholic Church.
He was born In 1813, and ofter completing
his studies at the Langres luminary, was or?
dained in 183G. He advanced from the position
of Curate to several positions of ecclesiastical
distinction. In 184C he removed to Paris,
where he was appointed .chaplain o? the Col?
lege of' H?nry IV, and honorary canon of the
see of Paris, by Monseigneur Afire, then Arch?
bishop, whose official mitre tod whose crown
of martyrdom it has been bli destiny, each rn
its turn, to inherit. He wa3 appointed Bishop
of Nancy in 1859. Feur years later he was
transferred to the archiepiscopal -see of Paris.
During his administration he observed a mod?
erate and conciliatory pplicy. His pastoral let?
ters were regarded by the ultramontanes
as too tolerant in their tohe. His con?
finement In the political uri son known as Ma?
zas commenced on the 5th ult., when he
was seized as a hostage by the Communists.
He was visited by Minister '.vashburne on the
k23d ult., who wrote to the fiecretary of State:
"I was deeply touched at the appearance ol
this venerable man, with his slender person,
his iorm somewhat bent, his long beard, and
his face haggard with ill-health." Mr. Wash
burne's testimony makes lt certain not only
thal the Archbishop was harshly and indecent?
ly treated by lila captors, but that he bore him?
self tinder the unprovoked indignities which
were heaped upon him with singular patience,
sweetness and nobility ot spirit. Archbishop
Darboy was eminent both as a preacher and a
writer. His chief works were an edition ot
"St. Dionysius, the Aecppaglle," a very popu?
lar book on ,;*Bhe Women ol' the Bible," a
translation of the "Imitation," with Illustra?
tions by -Overbeck, and, curiously enough,' a
life of St. Thomas a Becket, the great English
Archbishop, who fell' a victim so long ago to
the passion of a feudal king, even as he him?
self has now fallen a victim to the?madness ol
