CITY INTELLIGENCE For Additional Local Item tee Third rage. ANNUAL REGATTA OF THE DELAWARE SQUADRON. THE START MAGNIFICENT SIGHT. OHE HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN VESSELS UNDER CANVAS. SCENES, INCIDENTS, ACCIDENTS. Ete., Eir I.e., Etc, Kt., Etc, Et. A rest'oss onorry, an unwavering application to the caros and anxiotios of businoss, hare beoome marked characteristics ot the American people; to much ao, in fact, that we hare otten safTeied the lepreacb abroad ot' being exclusively dovotcd to this single art of money -ma king. But of late years we hare baen permuted to chronicle many oronU which (to far towards showing that there has been change for the better in this respect. Out-door sports and paetimos of all kinds are becoming more and more popular every day. This is especially noticeable in the cities an 1 larger towns situated on the seaboard and on the courses at ttio great river, where there is ready acocss to Targe bodios of water, f-culling matchos and regattas have indeed become a'most of everyday occurrence during the proper season. Philadelphia has not been behind her nclatilors in this respect, as has been amply proved by the earnestness with which many of her citizens have entered Into sports ot this character. But it was reserved for the Regatta of this morn ing to surpass all previous undertakings. At an early hour the crowd commenced irs march on the t erry to Federal street, Camden, from whioa point the start was to te made. When our reporter bad succeeded in reaching the other side of the river, he found the piers, docks, and broken-down steamboats, which form the chief attraction to the denizens ot our Jersey suDurb, entire! covered by an anxious and expoo'.aut throng. With a sublime disregard oi the cost of shoe leather, each particular Individual was devoting all his energies to the task oi clambering over pi.es of coal and lumber in ttie vain endeavor to gain a soot from which he could have an unobstructed view of ah the surroundings. Sundry uicrnn, ot the irre pressible stamp, had expended an indefinite amount ot breato in ascending tenets ten feet in height aud half an inch in thickness, wftile here and there the ragged line was broken by a pair of glis tening patent-leathers ana a high-crowned hat, whicn indicated that ihe owner had arrived at an age approaching niaurky. The ladies who had craved the opportunity ot witnesring the start were comiortabiy quartered in the Becond story oi the boat-house aujoiniug ihe teriy. As fa' as the weather was concerned nothing more luvoiable to the comlort ot spectators could have been desired the e.nbryo aog-uavs through wh cli we have been sweltering lor a week oast appearea to be over; the stid' breeze blowing was suilieient to lash ibe Deiaward into a mimte sea. But here was the dlffl ulty. Old watermon who had followed the tide until they were tanned to a leatnerv hue, declared witn grave sbakes ot the head and mysteriu ejaculations, that something iearlul in Ihe way of accident was sure to happen. Yet the ardor of no one was dampened therebv; Captaiu Kisey was every where, while judges, com mit tei men, and various other functionaries made day hideous with an uproar of commands and ex hortations. At half past eight there were a goodly numbor ot vessels on hand prepared to enter upon the contest. Jo these, additions wero made at every moment. 1 his was. Indeed, the most interesting part of tne whole performance. Oil the shore lay the Commo dore's acht the Scud, suorting a fanoitut array ot bunting, and sunououed by scows and tugs vith like fanciful decorations. In and out between these the different vorselsttiat weie to take part in the race were seen waiting their way, under a full stretch of canvas, their gunwales fairly dipping in tho water, and the.r sails reeling to and lro like drunken men. Nine o'clock was the hour appointed for the start, and punctually to the time, some eight or tea small gunning skiffs were arranged side by side, and moored to the landing. Then came he tug of war among the captains of these ambitious craft One swore roundly that his beat was but fifteen fe"t one inch and a quarter in length, while that of his next nemtiuor waB iuii mieeu loot iwu menus uuu nun. Of course he was unwilling to sot sail with such fearful odds against him. The judges grew hoarse before the difficulty was adjnsted. But adjusted it was at last, and every thing made ready, when one of the little tubs broke loose from its moor nirs, gave one or two turns, and then gracefully keeled over into the water. For moment aifairs were decided mixed, and rather un. certain. 1 he crew had consisted of two men, and it whs impossible to discover how many had perished. Jn another moment however, the head of the cap tain emerged irom the waters, and the first mate, boatswain, and carpenter all in one was seen astride the upper gunwale of his craft When tho excitement caused by this mishap had subsided, tho preparations were attain made, and at hall-past nine tho vessels of the sixth class got fairly under way. Tbey consisted of running skirls, of abont fi I teen feot in length, and were named and commanded as follows i fashion, Captain Gore; Rescue, Captain CafTrey : Little Charley. Captaiu Kirk; Lower, Captain .Lower: and lla, tap tain Smith. The fifth class open, square-sterned skiffs, from fifteen to sixteen feet in length were the next to start. But here there was another mishap this time from a brokon tiller. A lack-knife soon fash ioned the other end ot tho rotten helm, it was thrust again into the mortice hole, and off they started, six in number, and named and olloered as lollows: Jack Cade, Captain Cade; Little George, Captain Sbeppard; Ben Coomlie, Caotain Mastori; Colonel E. I), Baker, Captain Henry; Lieutenant Preston, Cap tain Parsel ; and the Annie, Captain Uolan. But before the vessels of the fifth class had time to git clear of the whatf the fastenings of the tourth class, which were moored immediately in their rear, rave way, and they were down upon them in a trice. The first aspect of this mishap was chaotic, the second disastrous. I he large vessels that ought to have remained quiet lor a little longer seemed determined uuon going ahead ; the mall vessels whose duty it was to make headway seemed bent noon standing still. This was bad enough but in the midst of the jumble a man coutmed to get overboard, and before he was la'.rlv fished out ol the water, one ot the Iareer cratt had capsized, and its crew, oousistiug of four men, all told, were floundering about aud attempting to stride the gunwale V ben this unhappy tangle was reso'ved, the main diiliculties oi the clay wore over, and everything thereafter passed otfsmoottily. ' The vessels of the remaining classes1 experienced no great difficulty or delay, and at naif-past 10 the Commodore's yacht, wiih toe accompanying escort, rounded to ana beaded down the river. Shortly alter the steamer Portsmouth followed, with a large tarty oi excursionists eager to view the race on board. 1 he total number of vessels which effected a start was ouo hundred and eighteen, but betore they had reached the Mavy Yard several more were capsized. The race will be determined ou their return to ibe Navy Tard, which point they arc expected to reach between 2 and 8 o'clock. Brutal Assault ok a Colobkd Wo man Two white men were arrested last night at Broad aud Lombard streets, on the charge oi com mitting an aggravated assault on a colored woman. 1 One of the men gave the name of Harrison if enry, and suited that he resided at No. 63U Huruce street.

A wise physician, in our day, will present the medicines which expe rience has shown to be efficacious.
