TWENTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL FAIR OF THE CALIFORNIA STATE AGRICUL TURAL SOCIETY. FIRST DAY. The State Fair opened yesterday under very auspicious circumstances. Should the speculations based thereon prove to be well founded, the exposition of 18S0 will surpass that of any previous year in many material respects. The Park opened at 7a. M., and, contrary to the usual .'custom on a first day, a number of people viaited the grounds prior to the afternoon entertainment. It does not appear that there is any very large number (f visitors in the city as yet ; nevertheless, the patronage at the lark yesterday was finan cially largely in excess of the first day of last year, and the races were attended by a very large number of people— indeed, a larger number than ceen at the Agricultural So ciety's track on a first day for a number of years. THE RACES Were announced to begin at 1 P. v., but the horses were not called up until about I P. M., and the result was that the sixth race had to be omitted, and the fifth was not finished un til after darkness had set in. The programme of races was one of exceeding interest, and was pronounced by all to be one of the best ever presented by the society. The races were numerous, spirited, well conducted, and evidently honestly run. Ihe new _■} stem of posting the record of the race on a large black-board was unanimously approved, and the satisfaction it gave to all was openly and enthusiastically expressed. The new re porter*' stand was warmly approved by the representatives of the press, who were much pleased to be where they could view the entire track during a race without the view being interrupted or they being necessitated to clamber among the upper works of the judges' stand ard hang on to the eaves thereof by their eyelids. With the system of colors for all .riders and drivers, and the posting of positions, th? colors, ami the out come of heats, the public H enabled to un derstand and take an interest in racing which it could not heretofore upon tbe Society's race-course, because heretofore only the few could identify the horses during a speed con test. It but remains fur the judges hereafter, constantly and inflexibly, to enforce the new rules, the wisdom of which is so evident, and not again permit upon the course the drivers improperly clad. The first race was running, dash three quarters of a mile, for two-year-olds ; Terry's s. f. Lillie Ashe, cob r blue, red and white; Coombs' br. c. by Shannon, color black ; Coombs' eh. c. by Shannon, color black; purse Si*-' added to entrance. The eh. c. bad first place and br. c. second. Lillie Ashe was the favorite at Z'M to §'.» for field, but the field Boon became favorite at $'20 to $15 for Ashe. The start was bad with Ashe well to the rear, the br. c. leading half way to the score, where all three were about even. On the stretch the eh. c. pushed ahead by half a length and won in I:l'.'\, Lillie Ashe second. It was a handsome race and nicely contested. BCMMABT. Aiir.:r ri.TiRAi.

They got off well together. Snowden led at the turn, Illusion second, Lexingtcr third. Dun bar fell to the rear badly. At the quar ter she came up to a fair position, while Snowden and Illusion went side by side to the half-mile post. There Lexingtor took the second place. At the thtee quarter pott they were well together, with first one and then another pushing to the front, and all going for all that was in them, the race exciting the spectators to enthusiasm. Just before the drawgate, Lena, under a lively whipping, came to third place, and for an instant had the second position, but Jennie B. here proved her mettle by passing all in a splendid effort, and passing under the score first, winning first money ; Snowden a splendid second, with second money : Dunbar third, and third money ; Illusion fourth ; Lexingtor . last.

This race proved also a success. It was hotly con tested and finely ridden, creating much excit ing interest. Haddington led at the start, but at the first turn Euchre came to the bay colt's tide, and at the quarter pole took the lead snd kept it to the end. Haddington at the quarter fell to the rear. Tyler, near the half, with Wild Idler at his saddle-girth, pushed boldly for a first place, but got to the third position only, while Idler took second rank. Around the turn Euchre was let out and opened a broad band of daylight between her heels and Idler's nose, while the others were strung out also in tingle file. At the three-quarter pole, however, they were all well massed and came into the stretch at a splendid pace, every rider _ plying whip and spur, and every animal doing his level best. Tyler pushed for the front and got second place by hard work — at the score, with Euchre first, Haddington third, and Wild Idler fallen off to the last place. Time, 1:58J.' They took money in the order stated. The quarter-pole was reached in :41, the half in 1:06, and this was a speed hardly looked for in the race. *v 7; ".' SUMMARY. . .

When the MM »a» had Night Hawk had a position far to the front, DoMM a poor secon 1. and Carmelita third. At the three-quarter pole, however, they all got together, and so came around the turns, running as if for dear life. Sillie was in the rear and the field buy ers shouted in glee. They came down the score pretty well together, but D.-ane and Night Hawk leading. Just before the score the former by a splendid effort went to the front a half length and won the heat.

In the pool*, which were very lively, Sallie Black now sold for $20 and $25 to $8 and $11 for the field. Tillie C. was ones or twice bought as second choice. The next heat was a splendid one and contested " for blood." Night Hawk led, Tillie second for a brief time, but soon yielded to Doane, who kept the second place to the turn, where all ran to gether, and so to the three-quarter pel*. From there it was a magnificent struggle, that roused the spectators to cheers. They came to the score. Black first.

The next heat was a perfect astocuher. It was run splendidly. Night Hawk led at first, but Sallie soon went to the front, Tillie trailing behind. On the homestretch they came down, four of them abreast, at a splen did gait Night Hawk led, and neither whip nor spur could bring a competitor up to her side. Night Hawk won the heat, Tillie C. second, Doane third, Sallie fourth and Car melita last. Time— 1:10 J. This sent Car mi liv and Tillie C. to the stable. It was now dusk, and there was some | q'lestion as to wbatl.er the race could be fin- i ished before dark. The judges finally re- I solved to go on with the race.

Some nii-und»-r*tandirg exists about the passes issued to the soldiers of the Tirst Regi ment encamped in the city, and on inquiry the Society officers state that there passes admit the holder to the Fair, as do regu lar tickets fir the sea«on, but do not en title him to any other privilege. This is true of all other tickets outside of life-membership certificates. Full membership tickets, such as the great mass of citizens hold, do not en title the holder to a seat on the stand. A charge always has been made for seats, except to ladies, who go into the grand stand free. The soldiers have been given full membership privileges, say the officers, and they could not go beyond that in justice. The seats in the grand stand always have been sold, except to ladies, and that is one of the important sources of revenue of the Society. AT THE PARK. Director Daniel Flint, who superintends the Park. ha 3 used great exertions to have everything in proper condition, and evidently has succeeded admirably. Every available inch of space has been utilized and has been taken by exhibitors. New stalls are being built, and now, in their incomplete condition, are occupied by stock. There is a much larger number of exhibitors than have at tended heretofore. There are horses of all classes, from the fine racer down, cattle of all kinds and sizes, sheep and poultry. The ex hibitors of machinery, farming implements, wagons, etc., are present, but as yet have not succeeded in gatting things in a position to exhibit to much advantage. They have been busily engaged so far arranging so as to utilize the power in running their heavy machinery. It is confidently expected that by this morning everything will be in place.

The spaces for displays were all well filled, and the exhibitors iv all the halls, upper and lower, were on hand Ito give information to the visitors concerning the articles exhibited respectively by. them. 7 . r-;* --. 7.--^77r yl During the evening a session of the Board of Directors was held, and the time for mak ing entries at the Park and Pavili in was ex tended until 12 M. to-day. This -became necessary, because it waa impossible for the entry chrks to comp'eta the eutriw. The Superintendent at the Park was in structed to prepara steps to the reporters' stand ; also to hare notices or placards posted, on this stantl, stating that it is for tho re porters of daily papers of the State only. Complai^c was made in regard to the pool 1 selling. It ww dMOCfi tbat the selling was DI S"T EirokMXinx SERIES, »«1.0 ira lii-SGHKEit .6. unfairly conducted. A committee was ap pointedl to investigate the same, md report tfa« Board, Ihe new combination detec tive ticket adopted Ly the Society as a check on transferring membership tickets works like a charm. At the Park Yesterday four tickets were forfeited, and at the Pavilion door last evening quite a number wire taken from the holders, who in every instance proved not to be the persons to whom the tickets had been issued. The Board says it is determined to protect its receipts against this practice el trans ferring tickets if it becomes necessary to pub lish all the names of those who give away their tickets, as well as those who attempt to enter on them. Church, Junes ft Beebe's Band, reinforced by musicians from San Francisco, furnished some very fine music during last evening. The Pavilion closed at 10:30 o'cltck. It opens at 8 A M. to-day. It is expected that ths Presidential party will informally visit the Pavilion this evening. lv the lower hall 1. L.

Witbinglon & Bagley, of the Capital soap works, make a fine display of soap*, among others of the celebrated King of Soap," an article they lay strong claims for against the world. In tho upper hall M. S. Hammer exhibits in packages the Cascara Sagrada Bitters, Hammer's glycerols of tar, etc. G. W. Che-ley 4 Co. exhibit the celebrated Bock and Bye, for which they are sole agents; also, t'hesley's Beach and Honey and Chesley's Peach Brandy. Chickering's pianos at.d the Wile ix & White organs are shown in variety. Whitter, Fuller & Co. have a display that strikes the eye and arrests the attention at once on entering the hall. It is the finest by all odds ever made in like line in the State, and embraces full samples tf white lead, in rrs, plate glass, oil, paints, artist's mate rials, etc. No mere "notice" can do this exhibit justice. De Voe & Biggs exhibit Mason it Hamlin organs, A. B. Chase organs and Decker Brothers' pianoe, all in variety. For the Chase organs the firm makes strong claims, and they would seem to be justified by casual examination sufficiently to demand serious consideration and close inquiry. Locke & Lavenson exhibit silk draperies, lace curtains, carpets, lambrequins, imported rugs in variety, oil cloths, and generally a rich display of upholstery goods that is very attractive. B. B. Scott & Son exhibit in variety their flavoring extracts, yeast, Jamaica ginger and other household goods.

Among other things are 500 buggy whips of their own make, and 1,000 riding whips, silver-mounted Mexican saddles and silver and gold-mounted harness, varieties of horse boots and stable goods in vast array. It is the best arranged display ever made by this firm at a State Fair, anil the best in that line of goods ever seen here. The Antisell piano and standard organ is shown by T. M. Antisell & Co. in Variety. The display is large and attractive. B. A. Fiak exhibits a variety of telegraph and electrical instruments and telegraph sup plies ; also specimens of silver-plating. W. K. Vanderslice & Co. exhibit one large case of solid silverware, of their own make, and quartz jewelry. In this case are shown articles in silver in the varied stages of manu- facture. S. J.

All the ! exhibit is of his own manufacture. One of the most noticeable displays in the upper halls ii that made by Weinstock ft Lubin, of the Mechanics' Store, Sacramento. In the main hall these merchants have a com plete department from their extensive manu factory, there being a very long table where a small army of sewing machine operatives are seated at work, and behind them a fore woman, cutter and assistant. The machines aie operated by a compact steam engine standing on the end of the sewing counter, and supplied by a steam pipe from the lower story. A catalogue of what the firm has made in this department cannot here be given ; suffice it to say that nearly every kind of men's, children's and women's wearing apparel is manufactured with neatness and strength, and is turned out with great ex pedition. This introduction of a complete manufactory of this kind into a fair is a novel and interesting feature. In the small hall, immediately back of the exhibit in the main hall, and connecting with it by doors, is the millinery, dry goods, hat and variety de partment. Here are shown many rich and choice silks and satins, latest styles of hats, French millinery, jewelry, optical goods, shoes, boys' clothing, infants' suits, elegant opera cloaks, fine dress goods, etc. The light ing of these two departments is very superior, and both are flooded with light from scores of burners, many having reflectors and casting the light downward. The fine upright show cases are 31 feet long by 10 feet in hight. As a whole, the exhibit is one to be seen fre quently and examined critically, and will well repay for the examination. James G. -Davis makes a very fine display of upholstered drawing-room furniture, with the richest of material and executed in the choicest style known to the trade. The workmen who accomplished the execution of this work are evidently among the first. Mr. Davis also displays a handsome office or library table' and a rich library case. John Quinn shows his patent burglar-proof door-knob alarm, and explains its working. J. A. Studabecker exhibits a new system of dress and cloak fitting. The J. M.

Two of these contain fine bonnets and hats, one contains a rich display of flowers, and one an elaborate arrangement of choice feathers. The cases constitute one of the centers of attraction for ladies when in the Pavilion. '-■' 1 A large and unique display is made of Clark's "O. N. T." spool cotton. , James Parsons exhibits a case of fine shoes, slippers, etc., for ladies and misses, and boots of superior finish and workmanship for youths and men. .
