The Trotting Harder at Chicago.
Wo reprint, on another ptge, a detailed
account of the recent fatal trot which took
place at Chicago, between the horses Cooley
and General Batter. We gave a synopsis of
this deplorable affair last wcelt, by telegraph,
but since then we have received a narrative
of all the Incidents, while the developments
elicited upon the Inquest held over poor Mc
Kcever's murdered body fill up the story,
and enable us to fli.with tolerable certainty,
upon the perpetrators of the crime.
It will be seen by reference to the report,
that the expected meeting between Cooley
and Butler, on the 23d September, had been
looked forward to with a great deal of ex
pectation on the part of tbo trotting cir
cles of t'bicagoi and we learn that the former
horse was backed for largeejuma-of money
by a class of roughs or desperadoes, who are
in the habit, like a similar class of ruffians in
tbla city, of making their bets good by fraud
and violence of every description. This class
of men, in Chicago, had long been following
the fortunes of the Western horse, partly be
tause he waa a horse of really great merit,
but tnoro because he was in the hands, most
often, of drivers on whom they could depend,
if it were necessary, to resort to any roguery
to unlawfully defeat the opposing party. A
class of men of this sort, supported by a
thoroughly unprincipled and hardened
jockey, are capable or any crime; and it has
been seen in this case that they did not
shrink even from the crimo of murder.
horse Cooley was driven by n notorious charac
ter named Kiley ; Oeneral Butler was driven
during the first two heats by a jockey named
Sam. Crooks. The first two beats were won
by the Western horse, each in an apparently
sharp struggle. Tho roughs, consequently,
were inecBtacies ; and feeling a secret assur
ance, beyond even what was warranted by
the merits of their horse an assurance which
Bprung, in fact, from their own resolution to
prevent the victory from going, in any case,
to Butler thev freclv laid out all the monev
they could rako aud scrape against him, at
the most extravagant odds. At this period
of the race, however, McKecver, who was the
virtual owner of Butler, and who began to
suspect that there was Borne concealed dan
ger in the wind, set Crooks aside, and as
sumed, for tho remainder of the race, the
charge of the Contraband himself. This
somewhat changed the aspect of affairs. The
roughs did not appear as easy as before ;
and some of them alluded to the new driver
lit blackguard and offensive terms. Tho re
sult warranted this menace. McKcevcr ft on
the next heat and the next, and barring foul
play, or unlooked-for accident, it was pretty
certain he would win tho race. So much
time had been lost in tbo previous beats,
however, that it was nearly dark before the
horses were called up to start for the last,
and much additional time was lost by an en
deavor to induce tho judges to postpone the
contest till the following day. It appears
that Riley favored this proposal at first, but
it was observed that when he came out from
the saloon on tha track where he had been
drinking, to get into bis sulky, he remarked,
" It was hardly dark enough to trot." lie
then turned and took another drink, but us
he started to come out aguin, a lug, rough
lookintr fellow who went un to liim.una henrd
to say, " Now, ttlloy, go ior him ; he is a
d d uhelp." Tho an.ir.er of Riley was de
livered with a drunken swagger, and his
words were, " I will sr : to him, by ." Sev
eral more " roughs then swarmed around
Riley, and oflered to drag McKcever from
his sulky, but Riley answered, " I can take
care of him myself.'1 Another person heard
uiiey reply to a question, as to whether he
would win the race, that ho was all right;
adding, " I have everything fixed."
The men then stepped into their sulkies,
but though it waa desirable to tret off as soon
as possible, in consequence of tho thick
dosing gloom, tho start was annoying!)' de
layed until it was completely dark. It was
during this period that tho murderous mis
creants gilded swiftly across the truck, and,
cloaked by tho night, posted themselves
where thev could dash out McKcorer's
brains. One of these fiends was detected hy
tue patrol judges, novertng oetween the
third and last quarters, but when ho wus
warned to go back to the stand, ho lountrcd
away and got a position where he could not
bo seen. There he and his confederates
plucked a long flat plank from tho fence,
and holding it forward over the track, so It
would come in contact with tho head of tho
driver who had the inside of tho course, they
breathlessly awaited tho sound of Butler's
wheels. The last that McKecver was heord
to say, at the stand, was elicited from him
by his anxiety to get off, and it was "(live
me one side; gitc mo a fair show;" and then,
with Butler one length in tho lead, the two
horses vanished into the darkness. Accord
ing to the patrol judges, who wero stationed
around tho track, McKcever held the lend;
yet Riley, by dint of running, luunugcd tu
Keep sufticieiitiy well up to exercise an in
fluence in crowding tbe black horso toward
the fence. In this way they ilew along until
they passed tho half-mile polo, riiddenly,
d whilo the next two of the patrol iiidircs
wero cogitating as to the purpose of tho ill
favored fellow whom they had seen hovering
about tho fence, they detected thu sound ol
the approaching vehicles, und us the drivers
canto abreust of them they beard McKecver
call to Riley "to give him one side or tho
other, and for Uod's sake not to cut hint off,"
At this they vanished into the shadow, und
in tho next instant McKcever met his fale.
iV muck, sham crash was heard, a ruftiaii
voice, which wus Identified to ho that of
Riley, shouted in tho gloom, "Ahi, I guess
jou'tc got enough of it now;" a licuvy thud
followed a little further on, as of a body full
ing to the earth, and the roughs who bud
bet on Cooley, had, as they fancied, wou tho
The black horse went streaming by the
stand without u master; tbe driver of tho
other reported that he thought McKeevcr
had been thrown out; and then the partisans,
who hud so bloodily seuurcd the victory,
clamored with open throats, for a decision
whichshouhl possess Ihem with their trains.
The affrighted black horso made two inud
circles ol trie track, no master now to stay
hiin, but at last ho was caucht. and the word
coming in that McKecver had been killed,
the judges, who bad so oflcn succumbed to
tho terror of these roughs, took heart and
proclaimed the race a draw. The murderers,
therefore, got nothing for their pains, and on
the following morning Riley and two fellows
named 1 lie key, ono of whom was identified
as tuo miscreant who socreteu nimseii near
the fence, were locked up tinder accusation
of the murder. The circumstances we have
slated were elicited upon tho inquest, which,
not hating been closed ut our latest dates,
promi.es yet uarixer revelations, w e nave
taken pains to give a clear narrative of this
affair, lor the sako of tho warning it presents
aguiiut a set of desperadoes who infest the
courses here, and who. If theV We not yet
crowned their rascalities with murder, are
only to bo excused upon the ground that
they have always succeeded, thus far, in
plundering their victims without recourse to
that laborious method. The case should be
a warning, also, to all judges of trots, never
to allow a race to bo started in tho dark.
The progress of ruffianism is of late so rapid,
from the toleration which bravocs enjoy
through the patronage of an elective magis
tracy, that it would not surprise us to seo
some of these fellows next perpetuate amur
der in broad daylight, as an Incident to a
trotting contest. It is but three weeks ago
when a gentleman judging a race upon a
Long Island track was severely beaten for
delivering Els verdict, and put to flight with
hammers and fence-rails. Had he not es
caped as he did, tbe Chicago tragedy might
have first visited us here. Many of the evila
of this kind of outlawry 'could, however, bo
disposed of by courage on the part of tho
proprietors, in ruling rascally drivers off their
grounds; and we shall venture to hope that,
failing a conviction as against Riley and tho
Hickeys, they will not be invited here, to re
vite their operations upon the courses of this
neighborhood. ll'i'Mei' Spirit of the Timet.

of tb. Whl French qnadraai Llettlent
ant Ira llarrla, Jr., la Cbar.T of th. Win
Wo have received from a correspondent at
Cherbourg, France, a detailed account of a
regatta which took place at that port on tho
3d September, In which fifteen French row
boats and one row-boat from tho American
squadron, took part. Tho latter boat was
under cnargc, in me contest, or Lieut. Jra
Harris, Jr., or tins atatc, and as he has de
scribed tho affair In tho most spirited man
ner, we will adopt his narrative from tho
point where onr correspondent takes it up :
" The race was for double-banked boats of
all nations, pulling not more than Bixtccn
oars, and from 29 to 35 feet long. The boat
I entered was 31 feet long and only pulled
12 oars. She is as prettily cut as any boat
I et er saw, and in fact a regular beauty, but
should pull at least 14 oars. My crew was
partially selected from the best men on
board, and part the regular crew of the boat.
I worked hard for tho four davs we had to
drill, and wo went in well got-up, with our
bottom all as smooth as gla-.s, and covered
with soap. When wo pulled in among the
French boats In taking our stand, every
body was surprised at our appearance.
"The other boats entered were fifteen in
number, and were the fastest ones of the
Iron-clad squadron. The best one, I think,
belonged to a Rear Admiral attached to tho
natyyard here. All pulled sixteen oars,
and had heavy, picked men. All tho betting
was on u barge belonging to the Commodoro
of the Flandro (irou-clad frigate), and an
other barge belonging to the Trincc Napo
leon's yacht, Jerome Napoleon. The latter
is a splendid boat, and won the race at Tou
lon. My men wcro very small forword, and wo
looked so little for the boat that the French
judges did not seem to core whether we ran
or not. They did not think wo could do any
thing, and 1 almost doubted myownjudg
incut. We took our places, mine being
about the middle of the sixteen: the second
gun fired, nnd we were off. (Jot a start ahead
of nino of them. A largo barge on the out
side of ine, belonging to the shoro maritime
1'rcfet, got off too soon, and jammed tho
bitch of his lino before the coxswain could
cast off. Kho was thrown out altogether.
Tho next boat to her was the Flandro's. Wo
gained on her bo fast that she gave up try
ing to keep ahead and tried to foul us, so as
to throw both out of the race, and let sorno
other Frenchman win. She drove us a little
out of the track, but by urging the crew for
a minute we got our stroke oars clear of her
bows and then crossed her. throwing her out
as she bad intended to do with us. Then we
made strong and steady for the stake buoy,
with the white navy-yard boat a couple of
lengths ahead of us, a pea-green gig of tho
flae:-ship Mflircnta. and the Prince's bartro
behind us, and the rest of no account.
After about a minute we could see that at
the swinging stroke we were going we gained
on the white, but the people on shore ull
said we never could keep it up. The Amer
ican Consul went to tho Admiral and said
we were pulling too quick, but tho old gen
tleman said wo wonld beat, and that 'that
young man' knowB u thing or two, and would
not let them give out. Well, wo came up
wun tno w line Doal, onu slowly passed ncr.
which drote her crew nearly craxy, and they
yelled and strained so hard that they broko
four of their oars. .Still they Imil a fast
boat, a good coxswain, and an officer who
knew his work, and we had to keep up to
our quickest work to get tuo inside track be
fore reuilung the buoy at one thousand me
tres; but we did it, and crowded him outsido
(winch is fair enough so long as you don't
touch or wet him.) This gut o us a boat's
length ahead, und let me case the men a little.
"There wcro then eight flag buoys in a
taw for us to pull around before returning.
We started round them all, but the white,
tbo Jerome, und afterwards one or two more,
went Officer! tho buoys, and started buck.
(Tbey either did this to mislead us, und gito
the race to the pcu-grccn, which was coming
up fast, or else did not know about tho
course ) I had hard work to keep the cox
swain from going the same way, and tho
crew, too, wanted to do so, but I inude Ihetn
keep to tho course, und !a a minute tho
others were turned back by tho boat sta
tioned by the buoys, and we had gained by
their (also maun litre a ship's length on tho
white, and the pea-green was thcueurest,and
soino distance ahead of the rct, Nowcamo
the work, for it w us necessary to keep tho
men well in hand, or Ihey would lose their
wind, for it was uguinst tho wind, nnd in that
caso sixteen oars to twelto ure tearful odds
for bouts of the same size. But tho men
worked well, kept cool aud paid attcutiou to
what wus sun! to them.
" Wc lengthened the 6troke, and I net er
saw a bout pulled through aracowilhso
little loss by bud rowing, Wc Just kept up
our distance ahead till within about the hun
