After breakfast they smoked, and smol ed some i

at their disposal.
They next paid a visit to the monitor in the bay,
and afterward to the new Court House. Wnen tola
that the large marble building had cost upward or
$8,000,000, the Indiana remarked that they would

Few yachting events wid excite more interest
than tlie annual regatta to be held under the

With a Heel of schooners Inferior to none, with all
the modern appliances aud improvements which

genuine yachtmen, the members of the club hive

which the organization was Hist founded. Moreover,
the rapid nud progressive strides which the

have been attended by the most beneficial reunits

An Invalid ISlint up In n Room with n >!ad
uuj-ne iku>?tnc /\tiiiii.u w.iu j.it i ruiiti.
[From t'.ic Detroit Free Press, Jaue 8.]
About two months ago, wiule assisting to rig out
a vessel lu the rivof, a man named Peter Demery,
living on Peterb jro ftieet, 111 tno. northern outskirts
of the city, tnuik a rusty rplko turougU cite sole of hi.j
lt*H foot, and luts ever since been laid up with the
accident, once narrowly c-icaplng an aitick or lockjaw.
Ills lamlly consi .t of wife and buy, tlie latter
about ten years old. On Sunday afternoon the motl.er
aud boy went on a visit to some l'riends on <;ratiot
road, leaving tlie invalid lying 011 it bed tha
stood in a recess of tlie front room. In fact, there
Is but one room in the house, the boy occupying a
lounge at night. As Deinery goes about011 a eiuich,
lie had a heavy one lying on the ocd when the lamily
went away. For three years th? family had owned a
large cur dog. The dog wan tod to go with t lie boy,
but was driven back and laid uown 011 tne step.
I).-tilery states that he had read for about an hour,
wh'n his attention was attracted to tlie dog.
The animal had walked in at the open door
and Blood In the centre of the room, utteriiu
a growling, wheezing sort of nolsa, tils eyes
shining and the hair on his back bustling up
straight, lie spoke sharply to the auiin.il, who
slunk under the bed, keeping up a howling as if in
pain. A window is situated near the lece-s and
almost opposite the door, and this was up a little
way at the bottom, the sash being held np by a hook.
A sudden breeze coming up created a draught that
s'.amnted the door Bhut, and Denary and ills dog
were thus shut up, as it were, together, lie slates
that the dog kept up his annoying tones until he
finally spoke sharply to him, when ail at ouse the
brute nounded from under the bed and commenced
running around the room. If is eye a were full of
blood, he kept snapping his iaws together like a trap
and every hair on the aniuial seemed to stand erect.
Tflero was 110 foam about tlie brute's jaws, but lie
nmtrtrwl n um't (if niwIuv talivit flint a/>i<ntiiil r)it? r< rmi
like musk, ltouud lie weut, turning over chairs,
snapping at t.ie blowing window curtain every
time lie passed, an 1 each time lie leaped over
the cook stove, which stood Jmt out from t!ie
wall. Demcry did not realize that lie invoked any
danger lu speaking to t ie dog; he regarded tlie affair
a-i arising: from u deslro of tlie dog t > got out and follow
the uoy. 80 he j elled sharply at the brute, biddintt
him lie do.vn. The dog, Just then, had hailed
near the door, and Demcry was raised up 011 his
elbow, holding his crutch in one hand, as he had a
not ton to hobble over and open tue door, llardiy
m d lie spoken when tlis dog bound? forward, giving
a fearful howl. Instinctively the man extended
his crutch, which came In cowact with the d< g's
head, uud he went toiling on llie floor. Whence
got up 11 was to resume his race around tnc room,
looking more frightful tliau ever. Uemery sprang
on the back side of the bal, close to the wail, hold
mg his crutch ready for d force, Imt hoping that the
mad brute wonld 1101 again a;tack him. it was now
time when Deraery might expect his wife and clnld
to return at any moiu nt, and It suddenly occurred
to linn that ihelr return would only be to meet an
attack from t ie dog. If (hey ascended the nteps
and opened the door, as was entirely na ural, the d-.ig
would bite oue or both. There was 110 longer 100 11
to aoubt that ho wus rabid, uiul tint Ms in utiles*

up for a moment, and then sprang 'or the bed. lie
juht got his paws and bead npon it when down came

The Vulon Urouuds at Williamsburg presented yestOMay
a livelier ajip^irauce than any grouud 111 this

spectators wore assembled within the enclosure, the
stoops, windows and roofs ot tlio houses iu the
neighborhood, from which even a glimpse
at the game culd be obt.iinod, were crowded;
wagons, trucks and any eleva Ion in the adjoining

In their openiug contest?the reasons given iu the
IIkku.I) ol Sunday tending to luduoe a large
crowd to be present at the game of yesterday.
Everybody expected that the MuUials would
make as good a stand against the Western
boys ns they did last year; that
they would give th-j visitors the "awfulest scare"
tn.-y Hiiotild get oil tiieir trip, iftli -y <Ii?I uot trip them

nl.-u a

of their ulue lu positions other than those lu v. Inch
they have been prn tl?ing during tlio past, lew w> ks;
this told against them quite frequently. At the 1ml
thoy seemed generally to have given up all i leas or
science?calling lor a ball Knee high, ami then hilling
at "shoulder litjti." With such a studl uh pitcher
as Brainerd, backed by such perfect Holders, this
policy?or rather waul of policy?on the part of ihc
Mutuals wad ilecUledly suicidal. 01 the live who
got ou (he bad* two evinced a (what might be
called) stupidity which hail a most damaging effect.
For instance, lu the fourth inning Egnler mado
two bases on a long falr-ioul nit; Nelson followed and
bagged the ball at Hucoud?th.tt la, he scut the ball
"ro tating hot" against the second base bag: then,
boy like, he commeuct 0 dancing at Dm, and linuliy
started for second. witu the cool,calculating Uralucrd,
Allison and Sweaaey wa chlux him. He was pat
out of course. If a ui-tri wanted to have bH h ad
taken oir it would boa capisal way Jor him to a comp.

it la not to be understood that Ne1 son wanted to be
put o.tt, but If he ir.d he could hoc have done better

Ho we.it to third on Ncl on' > hit, and there ho st ,od
wa. h ug tlie noy go out, and never made an alt inpt
to reach "home." He hud time enough to get sufeiy
in, but he staye 1 wh re ho was, and he wa s left there.
13. Mills had popped up a rty for Wright at th,e opening
o tlie inning, Ne'soii was Hecond h md out aad
K;tter.-< u popped up the imil for Swea.sey, and thus
two run.i were losi !<iat the AliituaiHmight have hud.
In the llulti they were fully as faulty. They did not
study tnelr oj poneuts' respective tyles of batting,
and the "red 1 e.;s'' batted time alter Mute lu the
same direction and were not cared for. Two or
t'uve times ihe bull ifas sent whizzing past short
stop toward the Held, when Neloa did not ov"ii
make a move to reach It. lie seemed rattier to be
airaid to face it. ueoigo WrUrli', on t!ie other hand,
made alti-mpts to reach, and almost sucejded,
tiu bull whenever It came m a similar manner. To
be sure it d.d not com very often, but when it did
he wa around. In fac*. he seenie t to be aH over a id
yi t neve/ intruded u:i his fellow players. To particularize
would b" lnvidiouB. During t ie entire name tli^rc
were but two errors nndo by the Cincinnati nineone
a passed ball b.v Allison and the oth~r a "miitr '
by Swetwey. Otherwise ttie play iui was perfection.
On the MiitualH.de iher* were "mull's,'' wild thrown,

and thus have necessitated a tenth inning, lliere,

presume that. their other niacins win not be so

which witnessed the game 01 yesterday.
The actions of the nine on the field might well be

The >aptain does not order h:s men about as if they |
were so many performing monkeys, nor give, vent to

for trial at Jefferson Market, tirs afternoon, lias de- !
onl/.t oil inmn a.-/l m.??l;?
mat Ion was received some time since tb.it a burglary
had been committed on the 1st of June at No. j
4J Cha.jton street, ami the matter was given In ]
charge of detectives Hiker and Von Gericht?n, of j
the Twenty-eighth precinct, who immediate]/ began j
the search, uni with the full measure of success j
which always rewards tlicir efforth. John McDon ild, I
a boy seventeen years of age, residing coi ner of j
Chat lion and Maedongal streets, was the perpetrator
of the burglary, asslsti-d by the notorious Jolri
McCoombs, alias "Cobbler Jack"?a former
cnuvict and well known in Police circles?and
"Tommy" Harris. Entrance was
effected by first naming admission through no me
unguarded baa intsut door in the middle of the block,
then e to the top of that house and so over the r; >ls
of some hall dozen houses to the house marked for
operation. The goods stolen consisted of silk and
other dresses, a gold locket, seal ring and pa r oT
sleeve button*?valued at |300 lu all. The goods
were recovered by the detec tives after a wearying
chaso. Thtt bad be A disposed of to Mr. F-rgu-on,
pawnbroker, los Oroome street, with the exception
of the locket, which liad been pawned at a place on
Sixth avenue, but was immediately identified and
led to the recovery of the otlr r go ?h.
Tills is the first time Harris has been before the
courts, altho igh the nolle have hid tlielr eyes up n
1dm for some time, lie has been one ot a gang of
thieves an l rowdies, ye. it appear* he Is respectably
connected, and no reason can be given Tor lus adopting
(bis degrading life. The strangest part oi the
story is Hut on Suturd ly las he received inform ation
that he had Inherited $1,M? in Philadelphia,
but was prevcii'o I from claiming it by his ariuat
on the evening of that day.
McCoombs, as Captain Washburn informed our report

All was quiet along the wharvea of Brooklyn yeatord
.j, and ilie prospect of a hand to hand conflict
between the opposing forces?those who stand ready
to follow in the wake of Dr. Cochran, the Brooklyn
Health Ofllccr, and those who are ready to carry oat
tholust ructions of tin Quarantine Commissioner*?
Is, irom present indications, doubtful. The vessels
which were taken to the wharves by i?ermlssk>n of
Dr. Cochran and in violation of the orders of the
Quarantine Commissioners, were being relieved of
ttielr cargoes yesterday and there was no interference
wltn the work.
Yesterday afternoon a number of Importers waited
upon Cochran, fully endowed his course and
promised to render him all the aid In their power to
sustain him. The Doctor replied that he believed he
was right in his action, and thought ne would be sustained
by the law. If he was in error he would
cheerfully Klve wuy.

The merchants, auxioua to do all In their power to
