RESULT OF THE FIRST OF THE SERIES OF INTERNATIONAL YACHT RACES FOR THE AMERICA'S CUP. Till- MAYFLOWER. BURRAH for the MAYFLOWER. UH BEATS THE GALATEA BY OVER TWELVE MINUTES. TUB YANKEE SLOOP AIIIIAI) THROUGHOUT TIIK RACE, EXCEPT AT TIIK STaBT?WIND BBOOOB to mark a satisfactory contest? LIEUTENANT HENN GOuD NAII'ItKP, AI.TIIOCGII SADLY BEATEN. Two of the fastest yachts that ever raced sailed for tbe America's Cap over tbe New-York Yucht Club course yesterday nnd, as lia? happened every time tho rup baa been contested for, victory remained with tho Stars aud Strn.es. The 8-7 was a perfect ono for a marine pageant and a good ono for Instit wcatln-r yachting. Tho Mayflower took thi lead immediately after tho start and for over (ive hdirn .ind a half tho racing lian of Lieu? tenant Henn hopelessly chased the signal of tho Yankee sloop over tho blue and sunlit water. A Kentle wind from the south rippled tho Hay and ocean and tempered the heat of tho sun, and tho thousands who viewed tho race from tan yachts ami excursion steamers saw the most beautiful sight thatwasever presented on those waters. The English yacht sailel well. She showed that sho was as licet a yacht at lea--t as tho challenger of last year, Sir Richard Sutton's lien.-sta. But that flying Yankee from Bolton could no more be caught by her than thc sunbeams that danced on tlie waves before her B_iarp bows. Tl.e Mayllower was well haudled and she slid along to certain victory as easily and gracefully as a bird skimming along the waves. Her victory over the Galatea was not so groat as that of the Puritan over tho Genesta over tho same course last year, but is was enongh to show conclusively that in light weather certainly, in all weathers probably, sho is able to keep tho cup from going over to Cowes in the locker of the Galatea. The only thing that marred tho race was the culpable carelessness of tho tugs and steamers in getting in the way of the rv ing yachts. In splto of all that has boen said and written ou tho subject steam vessels would insist on keeping close to the racers, and seemed to think it a matter of little importance it they ran across tho yachts' bows and sent a swash of water against them. It was with ditlicuity that the regatta committee could get a clear place for the yachts to start and finish and round the buoys and the lightship. Now and then a crowd of et earners and tugs would get around one ol the racing yachts, taking from her what little wind th.-ie --/as and seriously iuterieting with the race. One of the most offensive tugs was that chartered by the New-Haven Yacht Club, which would cling close to the leo quarter of the Galatea in spite of tho warnings of the regatta committee. As a -rule tho steamers and tugs pothered the Galatea more than they did tho Mayllower, thus adding discourtesy to ignorance and stupidly I At 10 o'clock, when the judges' boat Luckenbach steamed down to Bay Ridge, a great fleet of yachts was thou making preparations to get under way. From the city a larger licet of tugs and steamers, all crowded with people, carno steaming do au. Sailing directions, regularly signed and sealod by the regatta committee, were put aboard the yachts. Aud then the Luckenbach dropped her anchor oil' Owl's Head and waited tor a breeze There was scaicelv anv air stirring at the time, but tho mists and clouds were rolling away In gnat sunlit masses, and to tbe southward there was the SN misc of a wind. The rival yachts under main? sail, forcstaysail, club-topsail and jib, .moved leisurely ever toward tho Staten Island shore. On tlio Mayllower were General Paine, her owner; Edward Burgess, her designer; E. A. Willard, Dr. ' Bryant, Nathaniol Herrcshof and J. Frederick Tams- Her sailing-master. Captain Stone, was at tho wheei. and "Joe" Ellsworth, looking ?BUMS?J solemn, stood near bini. On the Galatea wero Lloyd I'l.enix, who represented the New-York Yacht Club; Frederick May, J. Beavor-Webh and Lieutenant and Mrs. Henri. The Lieutenant of the Royal Navy looked as good-natured and jolly as ever, aud so perfectly happy at tim prospect of a race that he uid uot seem to care ho tv it resulted so long as it was a race. The blSSM that came creeping out of the south freshened, and as it became evident that the judges' boat would soon give the preparatory signal, the English aud American ya. his lay almost motionless with their sheets trimmed .fist aft. abo ve the starting line. The Mayllower had her jib topsail run up in stops and t blue-shitted sailor was perched in hor cross-trees liko thst "sweet little cherub that sits up aloft,'sud who has become in the course of years and yacht races something ol a ''chestnut.'' The crow of the Galatea, in suits of snick-and-span white, with their ** Geordie caps'' ot red and whito on their inads, looked like sailors out of a picture-book. The most promineut thiuz ou the deck of tho May? flower was a pair of Haming red suspeiidors which adorned General I'aine. i hose suspenders were gleaming and tiery. Tncre wero defiance and victory in them. All day long they gleamed over the waters like a rich ruby in a sapphire setting, bnt the ? ..il.itt-.i never could get near enough for Lieutenant Henn to study their cut. After some trouble the judges' boat succeeded in clearing au open space between itself and the buoy oil Owl's Head and bluw ihe preparatory signal. The yachts cautiously ai.pio.vlied tlie line nud the Maytlower broke out her jib-topsail. 'Ihey were both close on to the line when the startiiu whistle was blown sk lOtM o'clock. I lien took place one of the prettiest starts ever seen at a yacht race. Ihe Msytlowei was ulmoston tho line with the Galatea un her wc.itlier ijoaitei when the Knglish yacht sudd july &hoi ahead aud blanketed hei ii val. They shot over the line together with only a Second's (titlerenco in their time and with a sneed that w as wonderful to behold. In the light air the cut er swept ahead cf Ler antagonist. Ihe America's cup seemed dissolving into air. Surpriso was on every faco among the yachtsmeu who looked on. u The blamed tbing eau go." shouted one yachts? man in consternation. But the success of the English yacht was only momentary. The May? llower soon regained what she had lost at tho start. A strong Hood tide was running at this time. Tbe yachts crossed on the starboard tacit and stood over to tho Long Island shore, tho Galatea being to windward. When well under the Long l-l.md shore tho yachts caine about almost at the snmo time. Tho Galatea was ahead, but the Mayllower soon begau to eat out to windward. This wind? ward position she constantly kept increasing. Tho Galatea seemed to go through the water faster than her rival, but she could not hold lier own with the Mayllower in windward work. Tho supeiioiity ol the centre-board over the deep keel for helping a boat to Ret to windward was being demonstrated. JFtnm the start to the finish the cruise waa thirty eight miles long, and for this course the Mayllower allowed the Galatea thirty-eight seconds. The time of tho start was as follows: Galatea.10(86:11 Mayflower.IO: Tit. 12 The racing yachts held their way on the port tack toward the Staten Island shore, and when mside tho line of merchant ships anchored there came ou tho starboard rack again. When they came on tho starboard tack the windward position of the .Mayllower gave her tho lead and this lead she never again lost. 'The Mayllower, being ahead, got the fresh wind that drew up through the Narrows first, ami still further increased her lead. 'Thus they passed out through the Narrows into the Lower H.ty. A. fair yachting bree/.e was blow? ing in tho Bay which nulled the waters, but there was no sea running, and besides the ceaseless churning of tho tugs and steamers the lazy swell that relied in Ir uni the ocean was all that rocKcd tho yachts. Just below Fort Lafayette the Mayflower came about on tho port tack. The Galatea still held her starboard tack. The Mayflower stood over to the West Bank and then came about on the staiboaid tack again. The Galatea had mine on the port tack and was following tho Mayflower over to the West Bank when tue steamer St. Johns caine down and ran across her bows, making a great swasu which made the cutter roc? and pitch. Tbs May? de wei stood over toward Cooey Island l'oint and then at 11;SS caine about on the port tack nguiu. One minute later tlio Galatea came on the starboard tack. The Mayflower made a short leg and then came on the starboard tack once more. When the yachts got so far to the eastward that they could see tho waves creeping up tho white sands on the western shore of Cooey Island, they came nlm.it on tim port tack, the Galatea setting the example. As they now went reaching to westward It seemed as if tho Galatea had gamed a little on the American boat. But the gain was not enough to give any fear that tho Boston yacht would drop behind. At ll:.".?; the cutter made a short leg on the starboard tack, but soon after came back again on the port tack. Tho Mayflower came on the starl...ard tack at 12:00, but came about again live minutes inter. The Galatea, after holding her tack for s.une time, came on the port tack and st..nd to tho eastward. At 1 _.':__..*>:30 the Mayflower did the same. Thus rhey went tacking down to the Southwest Spit witb steamers, tugs and yachts swarming around them. The Mayflower swept around Buoy No. IO nearly live minutes in the lead. The time at this point was: Mayflower.12:5530 daisies. LUO.oo A little further on toward the 1'oint of the Hook was Buoy No. 8 _, The yachts rounded that mark at the following times : Mayllower.1:01:51 Galatea. 1:07:07 Thus at Buoy No. 8-u tho American boat led her antagonist live minutes and sixteen seconds. The wind had hauled more to tbe eastward now aud wa* blowing from south-southeast, llie yachts laid tl.en court* for the place where beyond the horizon they knew the red-hulled Sandy Hook Light? ship was rocking on tbe waves for tn.-in to round. The wind began to fail as th*- yachts crossed the bar and those who had been through tho harrow? ing experiences of last year, w bes day after dav the wind relusod to be a psrfy to an international ra... between the Genesta and Puritan, lelt their hearts go down with the wind. But their lens wen- needless, for after thc lightship was rounded the breeze freshened again. It was a long reach out to tho lightship, devoid of especial interest fi "in a racing point of view, but a beautiful picture to look at. The Mayflower steadily increased ber lend and, Laving stood far en.nigh ovei to fetch the lightship, came about on the port tack and stood for the turning point ot tho race, ."she had taken in (h.- small jil.-topsail under which she nad sailed so far, and had lui balloon jib-topsail run up in stops ready to break out when she should round the lightship. By great exertions the judges' boat cleared a pathway for the sloop around Hie light? ship among the inconsiderate tugs and steamers. The Mayflower rounded thc lightship nearly lo in mites ahead of tbo Galatea amid a pandemonium ot whistling ot steam, rs aud shouting of nun. The time at which the yachts rounded thc light? ship was as follows: Mayflower.2:35:02 oalaiea.2:44:19 '! be Galatea took in her small jib topsail and set her balloon jib topsail and a large forestaysail after rounding, ibe crew of tbe cutter, usually so quick and handy, seemed to be demoralized at the certainty of defeat and wero a long time iii doing (he work. When the Mayflower bioko out her balloon jib topsail, which sho did quickly and neatly, she look in her otber head sails. Tb*" two yachts laid their course fur the l'oint of the Hook and the Mayflower still fun hei drew away from tho QslStSS SI they went sliding toward ihe low s.tiitlv beatties that stretched along below the Highlands. The yachts rounded Buoy No. 10 ou thu ruo as follows : Mayflower. 3:37:00 titilalea. 3:"iO:00 They now ran for the tiuish at Buoy No. 15, just outside the Narrows. Tho wind would scarcely alinit Iroiu its due. tum nt nins ike rs being used until shortly lietoie tho lin.sh. when the Galatea set bon anti carried it to the buoy.

Ths colored people, composing the majontf of the population of tho etty, have recoivot every possible consideration. At a meeting of colored clergymen held on Monday aa appeal w.,s prepared and a lopted, in which the aid of ibo American people was invoked for tho colored peo? ple of Charleston. The appeal is sinned by seven min? isters of colored churches. The object of tho me..11114 was, no doubt, a good one, hut it was nut necessary iii fie least, for appeals have air-ly been made to the poople of the United Mutes In behajf of the cuzens or Churleston, aud, aa there ts no section.tl line, nu shadow ol sectional feeling in the response to this app-al, so mero ls no distinction In 1 narie sion, no color linc, in tlleiril.. ming tue fund. Tlie relief fuud wm contribute.I by the people of tho L'uitol States for tlie llanelli of those who aro rendered homeless hy the eirt'ipi ikes, 01 wh,? are not In a position to support themselves from d.iy to day. There was 110 thought of color or class in nuking the appeal and there ls no .lum.ct:..11 of class or oolor In applying the means of relief. The people here can not afford to be dlvidod In auy sense at this time.
