Cm the first day's race the winds were light enough t>?ult the most timid of fair-weather sailors, whether bre'd In the English channel or In Long Island Souud. .But. ?here was a swell Into Which the Seam) ValRyrle pound??! with slight retarding effect, while the narrower hull of the Defender slipped through it. Testeront the winds were light, too. and the ocean was level as a floor. Everything favored the challenger. Nit only did the elements smile on the bold Lochlnvai who came out of the East to try to carry oft the prize of the yachting world, but, ac? cident . r careles?ness, or violation of the rules of the road, as may be hereafter determined, caused a collision tint almost put the Yankee boat out of th>> race before j-he was fairly In It. A broken spr-a 1er, a slackened topmast Stay, a topmast bending like a reed in the wind when thus robbed of Its bracing, and a clubtopsall that nearly w?nt by the board in oonsequei.ee?that was the catalogue of mishaps that sent Captain Haft*a craft over the line staggering, half-dazed, broken winged.

The Jockeylti?* for position at the start was as fine a piece of work as has ev?-r been seep, but unfortunately it ended disastrously to the De? fender tu?t as the boats were crossing the line.
