conflict between fc'ayres and Ifeeuau,
more intense than that which followed
the completion of tho Atlantic telegraph

In Kew York theordluary rotlno of'fohsl
"Aittti wns disturbed throughoutlhe wholo
city, and thousands of excited persons
tfHthcred about the printing oflkea, giv
ing way to rapturous and tumultuous
outbursts of pleasure or muuifebtntionH
of tho deepest chagrin und disappoint
ment according to the varying tone of
tuodUpntches that chronicled the pro
gress of the race.
Wall street was mainly occupied with
tho race, and transactions were light,
while betting was active. A dispatch
announcing tho result was read at tho
second session of tho regular board, and
won quietly received, except by somo
enthusiastic fi lends of the JIavards, who
refused to believe It. Soon after, a rumor
was circulated, that ,tliu Harvard had
won, and there was much excitement,
A little later a forged dispatch wu
read announcing that the Oxfords bad
lost by three length. Tho excitement
that followed was like thut when tho
cupturuof itlchmond was announced.
Nine-ten tu of those presuutoheerud loud
and lustily, hat were swtmg till ruined,
omo of the younger members danced
with delight, and u few of tho heavy
votorun embraced Uku long uuperated
brothurd.' Tho soenu of confusion lasted
ioio time, and another like ittrausplred
Jlu'the gold room, tipeoulatlou was for
gotten, and anybody who doubted that
the llarvards had won was considered
insane. For tho period of a quarter of
an hour there was heavy betting, the
backers of tno Horvards freoly ottering
ten and twenty dollars to one, the
majority of the crowd looking with
astonishment upon tho mou rockless
enough to back the Oxfords oven at such
oddi. Ono bet of live thousand to
.Jlvhuiidred was made, ud, auqtbor of
Two 'thousand to one hundred. Small
bets, ranging from leu to two hundred
dollars wcro made at any odds tho Oxi
?rord backors might ovince a willlugness
When it was announced that tho last
dispatch was a forgery, and that tho Ox
fords had won tho raco by four lougths,
the disappointment, chagrin and disgust
of tho crowd became Intense. Tho Ox
fords victorious! Why It couldn't bo
possible. But the news was soon con
firmed by another dispatch uud tho most
chap-fallen set of men over seen iu Now
York wassoen right then and there.
Tho Oxfords had won! Tho fuel was uo
longer questionable; but that thoy
couldn't do It again, was tho qnlnlot of
everybody. Aud strongly impressed
with this Idea it was determined that
