Nkw Ormsaks, July e, MT1.
The duties or a HKUAt.it correspondent, which frequently
conduct to strange places, not long since
led the present writer luto the partob orison at New
Oilcans to witness the hanging of a couple of hired
hravoa. who for $12 had murdered a Spanish sailor.
High over all the .llu of preparation for the execution
came shrieks and yells and Inarticulate jabUertngs

And some gross example of official ordelty; but the
most vivid imagination could scarcely have pictured
such horrors as subsequent investigations navo
brought to lignt.
Watting yesterday upon the City Physician, Dr. J.
E. Cooper, in whose medical charge the asylum Is,
and explaining to him the object of the visit, 1 was
courteously and promptly met bv an offer on the
part of tho l>octor of his buggy and his company
to tho asylum. Both tenders being cordially accepted,
a short drive set us down in front of
a massive, sombre, slate colored building. In the very
heart of the cltv?wiudowless, gloomy aad repulsive.
Nothing but tho words, ' Insane Asylumn"
conspicuously painted over ihe arched gateway,
could have dispossessed a similiter of t ie Idea that
be was gazing upon a prison or the worst type, built
before Howard and the philanthropists taught jailers

from lis rotilug roof and make mgnt loathsome.
The heavy Iron (rate swung slowly on Its hinges,
and Mr. J. E. Dutlllet, tuo Superintendent of the
Institution, bado us welcome to

Another Iron barred gate being unlocked, we came
suddenly into the courtyard ot the building, sixtyfeet
long by fifty wl do, paved with granite nag
stones, between which the inoiaturo of the earth
oozed in slimy paicho*. On the left aide was a
high, blank wall, colored the same dismal slate hue

small yard some fifty madmen were taking "exercUo

with shirts and some without, there they were talking,
walking, raving, sleeping or hurled In their
own sad, fearful reveries. Gianclug round In search
of some appliances tor the amusement and relaxation
of the unbappv Inmates, I found none. Mot a
book, not an occupation, not even a domino or a

every one not tortured by tlio dread Imaginations of

squatted a swarthy white mail, naked to the

London. July 1, mi.
Mr. F.dmund Falconer's Irish drama of "Eileen
Oge," produced at tho Princess fheatro on Xhurs
day evening, has little olaliu 10 novelty, This In an
objection, however, which does not apply to It with
more severity than to anything else within the
bounds of creation. Novelty was pretty wed
stumped tip so long ago an In the days of King Solomon,
iind it I t not to be expected that It should j
show much signs of regeneration tn tnese weary
times. Hut tf there U little originality there Is considerable
fun lu Mr. Falconer's play, which abounds
in droll Incidents and Is rich in Hibernian humor.
Kiloen and her sweetheart, Patrick O'Donnoll, aro
devotedly attached, but the coarse of their true love
runs iu a very rough and tortuous current,
owing lo the unforinnato circumstance of
a certain Mr. Ilciiry Loftus, who is the landlord
or each of these young persons, being
himself "suoons" uncu Eileen, The tnlamons efforts
of Mr. I.oltus and his associates in vtllany,
conspicuous among whom is Maclean, a Scotch
middleman, lo get rid of his rival constitntc the
chief business or the plot, and lead to ninny romantic
adventures and sensational scenes. O'llonnell
gels transported lor a crime which he uever commuted?the
writing or a thre.ituulng letter?but, returning
to Ills native laud in defiance of his sentence,
succeeds in tut nlug the tables upon his landlord
and gels mairied to Eileen, anything that Mr. Loftus
may have plotted to the contrary notwithstanding.
There Is plenty of fighting and dancing and lots ol
drollery and deviltry ol uil sorts, ami the Btory pursues
the uneven tenor of its way through a series of
rollicking adventures such as usually loan the staple
of Irish melodramas. The piece makes no pretension
to literary graces, but it is put together with no
little ingenuity. It abounds in curious types of Celtic
character, and the Interest Is sustained cleverly
to t, ,o last. It is spiritedly played in the principal 1
parts by Mr. Falconer, Miss Hose Lecleru, Miss
liudspeth, Mr. Thorc and Mr. Cuilcn.
The Uaim rke Theatre, which. It Is worthy of remark,
Is the oiilv house In Loudon at which ilia
queen retains a box, Her Majesty having withdrawn
her su'.scilpilon irom all other places or amusement
on tho dealii ot the i'rince Cous,<rt, lias been attended
by a multitude of "swells'' dti lint the last
week. No en tot royul and sctcno highnesses have
docked to the "littie theatre" In the Hay market,
as oi l putvtfi ers still delight to call it, to see Mr.
Sotheru in tue comedy of "An English Cenriemnn''
and a new larce ny Messrs. M.iddlson Morton ami A.
W. Young, entitled "Not If I Know It." Uic latter
piece, which is ol Frcm h origin and may no traced
to the same lineage as Mr. Oxen ford's drama "The
r en Stick '> is in rea lty a compi cased ver-lon of *
comedy called "A Three-penny Hit," In which Mr.
Hot hern appeared at Brighton last autumn. Tho
tuuin incident of the plot is suntcleniiy simple,
but it Is thoroughly Hal Ic In conception
and treatment, and the comedian contrives
to exiruot a lumi Of laughter out of it. A
cerium Mr. Tiimlingtou, a young married man,
of very nervous temperament, wuo has a weakness
tor passing himself oif as s bachelor, meets at a refresument
buirct a pretty iitue damsel, woo, having

accommodates ber wltu the loan of three pence and

benevolence expose him to a series of pettv perse- |
cations on the part of the uugratetil recipient of bis
bounty, who, not content with pelting htm with letters
bearing the odious signature "A Threepenny
Bit," forces herself into his house, plays a variety
of mad pranks there, and so conducts herself as to
be the plague and he titer Qt his lifa, Having worried
and pesrered hlui to her heart's content, the
fair lngrare drops her mask an I proves ro be simply
au old sehool-felio.w and intimate friend of his
wite; and it then becomes apparent that the purpose
of all this persecution was to cure Tiiullhigum of
his unconscionable proclivity lor flirting. There Is a
good deal of ris iv.mira In this little play, though the
plot Is ny no moans original. The notion of turning
the Post Oitlce into aa engine oi torture for the delivery
of letters bearing everlasting allusion to some
unpleasant topic Is probably U9 old as (ho Post Oitlce
itaeir. and has often b inn groaned into the mrl
novelists and ptevwrtgnte. Mortal It Without warrantee
In roal lite, as Is proved by the well authenticated
story about the man who. having dined in

be a sort of scrub race to open the programme, a

drew the inside and were allowed a handicap

| The Bondoln Regatta?First Annual Rowing
Contest o; tho Rowdoin College C lub?The
.^upnuhi* rc? avvninv; iuo i v. hhnpivb*
hip.
Bui nswicx, Me., July 11,1871.
incidental to the proceeding* of commencement
week the first annual regatta of the Rowdoln College
Ctuo holds a prominent place. It I* prominent
not only because thin la the first public exhibition of
rowing ever presented by the nrndents of this colI
lose, but that the crews themselves, standing on
their Intrinsic merits. Id t fairly to prove wortny antagonists
for the older organization* in aquatio
gporis from their fellows in the leading colleges of
the country. Until 1R07 nothing like a boating organization
had ever been formed at thl* college.
The love or atnletlc sports, wherever
I it cropped ont, had been sternly repressed
by the vastly orthodox college faculiy, tnoy deeming
mess and checkers the more fitting recrea1 Ion
tor u sedentary mind. The advent ol Freeman A.
Kicker, Howe er, who, by the way, has been the
William HlaklP of Bowdoin l ollego, soon di-sipated I
these antiquated Ideas, and he has sucoeedod, alter
the expenditure of much rime and money, In organizing
a first rate dun. lhe numbers, althoiigii lnexperiem
ed In boating matters, are bill ot life,
energy and muscle, and are deierinined to rig amxoared
represeniaiivo lor ?lie International College
Regatta of 1872. They have a neat and commodious
hoat house on the hanks of the KenliciKio
river, witn fourteen boats, and practice
thoir favorite amusement almost every
day. Hits self-same Kennebec river, by the wav,
furnishes at this point nun ol the smoothest
and nest straight-* way courses it has ever net n my
good lortnno to witness, tor a distance -if upwards
ot throe miles the view from the stinting point Is
clear and unobstructed, a.ul tue river bsiiKs disp ay
but a very small amount of curvature In their lormat
Ion.
tor racks
of to-day opened wltn a three-mile contest between
the four-oared crews ot the Junior and Kophomore
classes for an elegant silk Hag and the championship
of the college. The boat rowed by the elder class
was made expressly lor them, and wcigned but
eighty-eight pounds. Their crew were Weston
Istwis, stroke; W". (). Hooker, Marcellua Coggnn, C.
shannon, hot, and ate all, except tho how
oar, powerfully formed men. No. 2, however,
was suffering exceedingly from boils which were
produced oy excessive training. Ttic sophomore*
exhibited a crew composed of L. Crocker, Ktroko} A,
U. l.add, J. P. Billot, A. J. Hoardinau, bow -thin,
aparc men, but giving promise of good lasting qua lines.
When the word was given in* Junior boat
look first water, but had pulled only three strokes
I l/LY IB. 1871.?TK1PLE SI
I before 1-ewli broke one of tils onfrtggers and laid
I uU oar over the side of in.* boat. shannon, loo,
excited and Inexperienced, sleeted very wild, hngI
ging closely to the shore and losing much time by
doing ho. The ".sophs" meanwhile galued two
boats' lengths, and preserved ihelr advuntago until
after rounding the stakeboai. Then the juniors
lost their rudder by a most uufortuiiate "foul," and
gave up all hones of success. The souhoinore crew
pul ed easily past the Judges' boat, makiug the race
ill 21 in. 4s.
The second race, between wheirle., ovor a course
one mile In lengih, ror a silver cup worth $ioo, was
contested between N. 1). riarK and K. I). Freeman,
resulting la an easy vlct ry for the former. Tune,
N:6Si*.
Tina was follow yd by a very amusing race between
six contestants In washtubs for a tin dipper prize,
creating much merriment in the crowd. 'Ihey
swashed about tor a distance of one hundred yams,
sometimes puddling and ?*fion<r groping along the
bo. torn of the river, until, alter a half hour of the
hardest work he ever did in his life, one of the boys
succeeded in reaching the (lag.
I'll is race com luded the rcgattA, wluch was largely
attouded by interested spectators.
Mowing lUnsita on Lik* Mlrhigna,

To-day Is the second day of tho regatta. The
morning Is pleasant and frown and tho sea a little
rough. In the rucc of pleasuro and working boats,
distance two miles, for a prize or f 25, James Myers,
of Uconomowoo, was the victor, time, 2 m. 80s.
The four-oared shell raco was won by the Waliaahsuma,
of Saginaw city. Time, 2Mil. l?.a. The Lady
Evelyn, of the Milwaukee Boa* Oltio, contested cverv
Inch oi the courso and citmo In but eight seconds
behind. The Sylph, of East Saginaw, came third,
and ilie Sprite, oi the same place, lust. 'Hie raco
between tne two last mentioned boats was decided
ujr u uuili a loiiuin.
The Chicago Kowlttg club withdrew from all the
noea ves.erdav. Tils baa caused much dissatisfaction
among the member* of the association.

Tho regatta at Bristol on Friday next (to-day)

mo umg of the race. The course to be salted oveils
