When the I jolly amateur tars of Madison avenue turned I out yestorday morning for a sovoro look I I around at the weather, their eye, eoucht In vain tor a cloud. There was a blue skyuTer- i tieadand adroamybaro nt tho horbon that ; told the weather wlson story of thotiadltlonnl ! ladlos' day that romci l bless the nautical J souls of tho yachtsmon mid the unnautlcnl SBouls of tholr frlcnd-i whoiovcr they co a-cruislng up the Sound In senrch of glory and silver mugs to ballast their vessels with. Thereat the more otperlencod of tho lolly tars took a Sampan cocktail, nnd tho less expert ' oneed coffee with a dash or brandy In It, and j then altera hasty broalcfast all hands bowled tiown over the billowy pavemonts to the foot j of East Twenty-sixth stroot, where the cruise I really besnn, although the ofllclal start was to I fcomadoelsowhoie. It tho vlow of tho wenthor from the bodroom Windows had been pleating, thnt from the pier j axon exhilarating. Tho bluo burgoo, with n "White anchor on It. at th' truck ot tho Commo ' lore's yncht Elcctra fnlily snniipoil In the northeast brnivo that curae burn Ing over tho river.

Mer chant craft ot every sort ploughed up nnd !down tho rlvor beyond, while within the circle host of llttlo yellowish launches, with their tiraas Bmokcstno'is polished lit to niako one's syes ache, danced nnd pi u need to and fro be- tween tho plor and tho yachts. I In marked contrast was the old woodon Wnlled man-o'-war nntlc. Brim and black. with IS yards trim nnd square nnd awnings stretched i tlfT and tight, for all tho world a nnutlcal old E maid-no longor in It, f Beside the pier lay the Mv ndort Starin. char- 1 terod to carry the fortunate people, tho frlonds ! of the yachtsmen, down the Sound to seo the 8 start of the orulo.

HI , and such references to models and rigs nnd HI fittings and courses among tho gentlemon as H would have convinced anybody that soma of HI them know all about nnutlcal nITalrs. Thorn Id were such appreciative and even longing H glances cast at tho Hell Gate fishermen on tho H way up, followed by such tales of persoual nd- ventures In that line, as showed that tomo of M the company knew a deal about other klnds-of outings than yacht club cruises. But tho flsh- H tag tales soon failed, and the talk drifted back again to the sport lu hnnd. Q Through the oontlncd waters around the 1,1- H and at the head of the Sound tho wind eemod B very light and that was not auite pleasing for U those wno wanted to tea a dashing race later I on. but tho weathor shams assured those who I Weren't sharps that that was all right. And so B It appeared to be when the narrow waters lie u tween Tbrocg's Nock nnd Whitostone wero II reached. A ripple of a tide rift was found there.

'I he experiment of stort ing the New York Yacht Club lleot at Ulen Cots does not seem to be a remarkable euccesg. When the flugship Kloctrn fired her pun just before 11 o'clock this morning hor saiuto was answered from n lleet of sUty-seven yacbts. This does not comuure with the rendezvous at hew London In former years. At New London Inst yenrlJU jachts s-howed up for tho start. The absence otmnny ot the luistern yachts 1, noticeable, und tho lleet will not reallj bo all together till Newport Is roachod. A meeting ot Captains was callod aboard the r.lectrn at 11 A. 31.. promptly. 'J he glga of all nlzesand shapes Interspersed with naphtha touches put on from tho various yachts and rowed or putlod briskly up to tho Plectra's starboard gangway. At the meeting it was decided to start at 2 o'clock: for the ten-mile run to Huntington Hay, Vice-Commodore Morgan glnncod over nt his big schooner Constellation nnd wondered if It was worth while to hoist her big sails for such a short run or whether he hadn't better send for a tug. Tho broezo was northeast by oast, with a bright sun. nud just enough air to ruffle the surface ot tho water without putting White tops nu the waves. To-mot row's rim being sixty-live inllos in length, from Hunting ton to New London, with n likelihood or a head wind. It was, thought bettor to make a start ut u::)i A.M.

At 2 o'clock n gun was flied from the flag ship and the lleet got under wav without re gard to time or order. It was docldodnotto ti.ke tlniH ou this run. ns the dlstnnie was so short. It made n pretty bight as all stood north of Ilonipsund harbor ou the sturboard tnck. The featmc of the day's sailing was tho work of the Uwoono and Iiiiuniless.

In speaking of tho matter of starting nt Glon Cove, j oinmodnro Horry snld: "It wns done with the idea of making a chnngo to vary the mouotonv.nudulso toieturn to an old trndl tion of the club. Hut, judging by tholleet.lt dr.es not seem to hnve met with approval. We shall pick nn n good many boats nt Hunt ington, more ut New London, nnd a good many othei h at Newport."

A farce lately suceossful In London wns noted last evening at the Madison Baunra Theatre, which was reopenod therewith very laughably. The piece wan named "Jane." after one of Its droll characters, a servant girl who llgured for ft low hours ns tho wife of hor employer. The Frenoh original play had a long term ot tiso In Taris, whero tl e complications arising from the falso pieloncos ot tnarrlnge might woll have boon blushed nt ns well as laughed at. '1 ho I'.ngllsh version, ns presented to Its first Now York nudlonce. and recolved by tho notably ilno assemblage with nbundnnt laughter, was nlmost altogether Inoffensive, nlthough at tltnos the aulck Imagina tion of Amorlenns wan bound to restore some of the things that the ndnotor hnd taken out, "Jnne" proved to bo extravagantly fnrclcnl, provocative of merrlmont throughout ltsentlre lnngth. nnd therefore mccossful In its light and trivial purpose. l'owlnlts succession of Incidents falledtn comicality, nnd mnny of thorn were ronrcd nt loudly nnd long. A jovial summor night en tertnlnmont was the upshot, nnd the people, seemingly hungry forthontricnl diversion after a fa't. relished tho now fun.

The doors ot the Fourteenth Street Theatre were thrown open last evening for the presenta tion of whut its author terms " a military com edy drama." The house was more than crowded, It was packed, and judging from the reception ac corded to Mr. Harry I'. Mawson's dr.ima It should be said that it was uproar iously and turaultuously successful; but historical atcuracr requires tho additional statement to be made that two-thirds ot this vast audience would, by tbo rules ot evidence, bo excluded from a jury to pass upon tho merits of the play. It will require ahouseful of coolor heads and heavier palms to test the real effect of this series ot war pictures and accompanying songs, dialogues, and farcical effects. The drama opens with a scene In southwest ern Virginia, where t'ul. .Mason (L'dward E. Mawson) ot the Union cavalry ha, hi, bead quarters nt Monteith Manor. Here love and war go band in band. He is in love with "tho fnlr rebel," Jiss Monteith (Miss Fanny Gillette), and Dr. Stittman, the surgeon of Col. Mason'$ regiment, is in love with ilitt ejth. an old maid aunt of Miss itontrith'). The llrst and second acts take place at the Manor House, and are by far tho most lively and entertaining ot the play. jVW.sf.an old negro servant tMr. John T.

A SPECULATORS' llEVOLVTIOX. Retnnrkable Attempt In Hpnln to Rear Government Hecurltlea. BAncF.i.oNv. Aug. 3. Great excitement was caused in this city last night by what was at flr-t believed to be a revolutionary movement on the part ot tbo llcpubllcan party, but whloh EUbsequontlyproved to be a desperate attempt or speculators on the Bourse to bring about a decline In the prices of securities. For fool hardy daring the scheme has nover been equalled by speculators in any country. The troops who garrison tnls city were In their barracks, and the usunl guards were patrolling tbelr posts, when a band of fifteen mon, some of whom were armed with rifles, while others c ni nod revolvers, cautiously ap proached the buildings and attempted to oflect a surprise of tbo guards. It being their liiten tlou to force their way into the barracks. Tbe sentries wero vigilant, however, and soon dis covered tho approach or tho men. The guards ordered the band to halt and givo the counter sign. To do the lattor was Impossible and the men mndo a rush on thn sentries, trusting that in the confusion which would follow they would be able to force their way into the barracks. As they ran toward t.'ie sentries they delivered a volley from their weapons and some ot the guards fell. The other sen tries, however, stood their ground, nud uti swored volley with volloy. Tor a snort time a battle wus fought and several on eaoh sido were wounded. Meantime the officers statlonod at the bar racks summoned the troops to arms, nnd in n very short time the attacking party found themsolvos surrounded. Iteslstnnoe was use less, and the p.irty were placed under arrest. They will be iried by a court martlul und probably all will he shot. PtittH.
