Hereabouts, and from this quiet, aristocratic city,
ihon8andH of Kentncky's fairest ladles and gal
lant sons. The attendance demonstrated to the
jfllcers that their new and magnlticent stand mast
>c enlarged to accommodate the great acquisitions
rrom the first families of the State, who now attend
lhe races. This amusement Is recognized here
is a respectable pastime, and the best circles of
society soem proud of the character they give the
track by their presence. John C. Breokinrldge, the
Hurting judge, has thus far been particularly fortu
nate In getting the horses away In good shape,
rhere were two very Interesting events on the
cards; the first being mile heats, and the other a
dash of a mile and a quarter, with seven starters.

victory to-day, winning the race in two beats.
The following are the details of
THE HACK.

HASH OF A M1LEAND A QUARTER.
The second event was a mile and a quarter dash,
for a purse of f 150. For this raoe there were seven
entries, comprising J. W. Hart's chestnut filly Min
nie Lee, by Nell Robinson, dam Cora Lee, fonr years
old; S. n. Wallace's chestnut Ally May Vilej, bjr
Doneralle, dam Capltolu, four ycarB old; ... ?.

Lisle, by Bonnie Scotland, dam La Grande
Puchesae, three years old, and A. Kecne Richards'
chestnut eolt Spendrlft, by Ronnie Scotland, dam
bv Wagner. Fr*gtown had the call In the pools,
Motile Cad befog second choice, Spendrlft thlnl, the
others selling us a field. Frogtown won easily,
making the best time on record. The following
aro the details of
THE BACK.
The horses had a flue start from the head of the
homestretch, Oceanica getting away first, May
Ylley second, Frogtown third, Spendrlft fourth, the
othe'rs In a cluster. Thore was no change of places
as they passed the stand, nor until they
went up the hill on the upper torn,
when Frogtown ran to the front, May
Vllcy second, Spendrlft third, Oceanica fourth,
Minnie Lee filth, Klsie sixth, MolUe Cad seventh.
Freetown showed the war down the backstretch,
but before he reached tho half-mile pole Spendrlft
wont up and collared him, and thCy ran side and
side Into the lower turn. As they began to ascend
the hill towards the three-quarter pole Spendrtft's
stride became a trifle shorter, and he fell off grad
ually until, as Frogtown turned into the home
stretch, he was clear of Spcnilrlft?the only
competitor that he had worthy of notice for half a
mile. This best son of Bonnie Scotland then came
away down tho hill, leaving Spendrlft, Mollle Cad
and the others struggling behind. Frogtown landed
a winner by four lengths, Spendrlft second, Blx
lengths ahead of Mollle Cod, Klsie fourth. May
Vllcy fifth, Minnie Leo sixth and Oceanica sev
enth. Time, ?2:00)4?tho quickest mile and a quarter
ever run in America by half a second. This per
formance wipes out that of Narragansett. Frog
town has much improved in appearance since last
year, and Is now a large, fine-finished horse, and
will lie found hard to beat by the very best In the
land. Ills victory tb-day was under a pull, frog
town ran liino times as a three-year-old, scoring but
one victory. That was bis second appearance
during the year itci, at the first Summer Meeting
of tho Saratoga Association, July 12, In a sweep
stakes for nil aims. The distance was one mile and a
i as to
quarter, same as to-day. w hlch ho ran with uo pounds
up, In 2:20',, beating llatnburg, ChlllicotUe und
Finesse. In ids subsequent several endeavors he
was very unlucky, his last appearance being at
Baltimore, October r,l, when he ran fourth In the
Consolation purse, oue and a half mile, being
beaten by Alroy, Proakness and By the Sea.

FLEETWOOD PASS.
Hatch of $500 Between Grace Bertram
and Topaey?Grace the Winner.
A few days since the owners of the chestnnt mare
Grace Bertram &Bd the bay mare Topsey agreed,
for the sum of (250 a aide, to test the speed of these
well known trotters, mile heats, best three In five,
In harness, over the Fleetwood Park track. The
match excited mnch attention and Interest among
turfmen, and they turned out yesterday afternoon
In quite large numbers to witness the result of the
contest. Altnough pretty Grace was the favorite
in the pools at two to one before the horses were
called, big Topsey had a host of friends, and
the money deposited In the box was very
large for such an event. Dan Pflfer was behind
Bertram and Dan Mace drove Topsey, which gave
the friends of the latter much confidence, but It was
of little service, as Grace won the race in three
straight heats, yet not without some little exertion
on the part of her driver.

The Secrecy of m, Democratic Caucus In
jaded by a Reporter, Who, with a
Hole In a Wall, a Lantern and a Note
Book, Gives to the World the Result of
Their Deliberations.
New Haven, May 14, 1872.
The first contest has been had between the trcoju
of llawlcy and Ferry, and, as I predicted in my late
despatch last night, Hawley has been repulsed
badly on the first ballot. He was elected on the
Senate ballot, the vote standing fourteen for Haw
ley and seven for Ferry, all the republicans
voting for Hawloy, with the exception of Mr.
Woodward, a law partner of Senator Ferry, who
voted with the six democrats. The vote in the As
sembly was-Ferry, 128; Hawley, ill; or a majority
for Ferry of 14. Ferry was declared elected In the
House, and the result of the ballot was received
with demonstrations of applause by the democrats.
Ferry's majority on Joint ballot to-morrow, taking
v?oi^?rtnbi!Uo?t a.8 a bafll8> WN be seven, and as nil
J?.'?1"to-day but three republicans and one demo
cratytliore no poHsibillty of defeating Ferry, unless
the Iiawley men induce some of the republicans
to h?wluy- This Is not anticipated;
but, on the contrary, it Is believed that in Joint cuu
' o? to-morrow some of the timid republicans who
voted for Iiawley will chango to Ferry, so as to lie
on the winning side. A careful analysis of the vote
shows that jqpt eighteen republicans, the precise
number who aigiied the document opposing the
votc<? L0T. *(r- VeTT?> They all come
from New Haven and Fairfield counties. All the re
publican delegates from other counties cast a solid
vote for Hawley. It also shows that in Fairfield
him ry stronghold, only two voted agalust
t th? democratic caucus.

are sincerely desirous of making the liberal

PENNSYLVANIA.
Programme of th? litberala Fore
?hadowcd^Oraat to be Defeated by tbe
"Liberalised Democracy."
Philadelphia, Pa,, May 12,1872.
Tlio best test 01 a politician Is his ability to bo at
all times politic?to adopt without a murmur the
drift of public thought, and chime in with the ma
jority, whether his personal views coincide with
their actions or not, and prove to his constituents
tnat the things that be are for the best interests of
all concerned, even when he has striven for days
and weeks to bring about an entirely different
situation. In a word, he muct manifest an adapt
ability to circumstances, and beat all times open
to conviction. The chairman or the liberal republi
cans of Pennsylvania lias not always Bhown this un
questioning belief la the wisdom of ills coworkers,
but he basin other ways proved the possession of
many essential requirements necessary to political
success. The Herald letter of a few days since, In
which your correspondent characterized MeOlure
as "the tiest dlsorganlzer In tho State," ha3, In all
probability, awakened him to the fact that an entire
change of base Is absolutely required to harmonize
the discordant elements In the constituency over
which he holds translont sway. There Is no
better proof of this fact than the subjoined
interview, had a day or two since. It occurred
to me that an Interview with MeOlure
would assume, In a measure, the character
and power of an oracle, for there la no man In this
Stato better posted on Its political foellng or more
compcteut to foreshadow coming events, provided
a certain policy Is adopted, than thlssamo dlsorgan
lzer. Politics with him has not been so much a
study looking to financial results as a passion
looking to the fulfilment of grand projects. With
this end in view he has labored day and night,
mixed with the highest and the lowest, studied
their feelings and desires and has always remem
bered. The interview I requested was cheerfully
granted, of which a verbatim report thereof Is fur
nished.
?N INTERVIEW WITH M'CLURE.
I was aware that he went to Cincinnati with ideas
totally different lrom thoso entertained by the
majority of the Convention, and was desirous of
ascertaining how he had accepted the platform us
drafted by that ConventloH of political archi
tects, and with little ado I asked:?
"How are you satisfied with tho work of tho Cin
cinnati Convention?"
MoOlurk?I was not of those whose oonnsels pre
vailed In tho action of the Convention. Two lead
ing theories were pressed upon that body. One
favored the selection of the candidate known to bo
most acceptable to tho democrats; the other in
sisted upon nommatlng the man who could com
mand the largest republican strength. I favorod
the first named policy, which confined mo to Davis
and Adams, and I supported Adams, who was tho
stronger of the two; but the other policy
prevailed In the Convention, and Mr. Greeley was
undoubtedly tho man to fill tho bill. At tho time
I doubted sthe wisdom of the policy that controlled
tho Convention. It was an experiment; but, If
successful, it promises overwhelming success, while
the other policy I regarded as making a union of the
opponents of Grant certain, and thereby removing
all doubts as ts success. Hut the developments of
popular feeling since the ticket has been before the
country have fully vindicated tho wisdom of the
policy that prevailed at Cincinnati: and I now doubt
whether a nomination suggested by democratic
rather than republican favor would have met the
present emergency. There wonld have been but lit
tle republican onthuBlasm for either Davis or Adams,
while a largo majority of the republicans of the nation
REALLY PREFER GREELEY TO GRANT,
and if the democrats do net repeat the folly of the
last ten years nearly or quite one-third of the re
publican vote will be cast for him. I am therefore
hilly satisfied with the action of the Convention,
and believe that the very best nomination was
made that could have beon made.
Correspondent?Do you believe the democrats
win accept the Cincinnati ticket ?
MoClttre?As I have said, I had little hope of It
the day the ticket was made, but now I am entirely
confident that they will. It Is evident that the
whale South will demand it, and the West Is deci
dedly for It. New Knglund will be divided. Penn
sylvania and New York will decide the matter In the
Democratic Convention, and the democrats of these
States have too much at Btake to commit sui
cide again, in this Stato the democrats do
not prefer Greeley, hut the sober thought of their
people will surely decide In favor of Greeley to over
throw Grant. There Is an Important State ticket
to elect, and the absolute political control of the
State for some years to come Is Involved. In addi
tion, the control of the Legislature Involves the
election of a United States Senator in place of
Cameron, and the Constitutional Convention will
belong to the snccessftil party. A union of the op
ponents of Grant on national, State and local tick
ets would carry everything by sweeping majorities.
State ticket, Congressmen, Legislature and Conven
tion, and thus transfer every department of power
from the men who have sacrificed republicanism by
selfish and arbitrary rule. This was dono In Vir
ginia, Tennessco and Missouri, and will now be
repeated In the national contest.
Correspondent?What would be the political
effects of such a victory T
McCLtTRE?It is hard to tell Just what the future
of such ? union would be. The union on national
and other tickets will not dissolve the democratic
party. It will maintain Its distinct organization,
and no ono will be asked to be anything hut what
he prefers to be politically. It will, of course, end
the old republican party as at present organized,
and the future of parties will depend upon the
wisdom with which the snccessftil men shall govern.
The union will be lor the success of vital national
principles, on which liberal republicans and demo
crats thoroughly agTee, and they wonld probably
continue to act and to succeed as
A " LIBERALIZED DEMOCRACY," IN FACT,
with all the errors of both the old parties bnricd In
the past. The nation must have peace. It must
have relief from carpet-bag government", oppres
sion, military rule and centralization. It must have
universal amnesty and the supremacy of tho ctvll
law, and It must have some measure of fitness and
Integrity in public officers. To accomplish this men
will agrco to act together, regardless of past differ
ences or present political associations, and they
will give to the country the blessings of free govern
ment and tranquillity.
correspondent?ir c.roeley is accepted by the re
publicans how wonld Pennsylvania vote ?
MoClitre?<Greeley would carry the State by not
less than 70,000 majority. A few antediluvians
would wrap themselves In their shrouds and wan
der around making ghostly complaints. Some
would fall into the Grant camp, as a few fossil whlgs
dropped off to Buchanan in 1H6S; hut the liberal
men of both parties would givo such a majority as
has never been given before In our state.
Correspondent? Suppose tho democrats shonld
nominate a straight-out democratic ticket, what
would bo the result?
McCluke?Then the nnwtsc leadors wonld be Just
what they ought to be if governed by such madness
?hewers of wood and drawers of water for another
decade. The most they could do wonld be to throw
the election Into the House, where Grant would ho
cleot< d bv a large majority of the States, and they
would drive both branches of the republican party
to unite on Congressmen, legislators, Ac. Such a
policy would end the democratic party, for 110 con
siderable number of people would continue to fol
low such leaders, anil a reorganization of parties
would immediately follow Grant's re-election. Let
me assure you that the future of politics Is with tho
men who wear party collars very loosely In both
parties just now.
correspondent?Do yon expect Greeley to carry
the Southern States, generally ?
THE SOUTH A UNIT FOR GREELEY.
McClure?The Southern StatcB will vote almost
n unit for Greeley or for Grant.. If Greeley's elec
tion Is possible he will carry every State South ex
cepting South Carolina, and that will be doubtful. If
r triangular contest comes, with no reasonable hope
of liberal republican success, the South will voto
for Grant. The Southern people are, Impoverished,
?n?~i *53 " WWc
u?ry powir, and If thPy <10 not see the way ciear 10
iafoa "t ti?o Grant yoke, they will do the only
thing left for conciliate the oppressor. They
dare not allow Grant to le fledtftover them.
CURTIN'S POLITICAL FltKPEItkRvB-*
correspondent?I see that Curiln la reported as
for Grant, Is It correct ? - ' ?
McClitke?Governor Curtln has made no declara
tion on the Presidency, nor Is any one authorized
to speak for him. His resignation was sent to
Washington fully three months ago, and he win re
turn home In July to stay. Until he speaks for htm
selfopon the question noone can assume to commit
him. You can rest assurod that he will not be In
different or silent in the contest, and when he
speaks he will speak with power.
Correspondent?la there any trnth in the atory
that Borle went ont with power to tender the favor
of the administration to htm If he wonld enlist for
Grant ?
McOi.prs?I do not know nor care. Governor
Cnrtin Is not trailing In old clothes Just now. If he
supports Grant it will he from choice, and not be
cause of any promises made to him. He does not
rctnru to seek office, bnt to retire from office.
CAMERON'S CONSTANCY.
Correspondent?You count Cameron as ear
nestly for (.'rant?
Mcclurb? Yes; so, so, He hstea Grant, and
will he one of tho first to leave tho ship If It begins
to sink. He has the advantage of Grant In sa
gacity, and will not allow himself to be hurled very
deep If he can help It. He will bock Grant as long
as he Is a winning nag?no longer. If Greeley Is
cleoted be will swear that ho was the first man In
the country who named Greeley for President.
Correspondent?Why are the Grant leaders re
fusing to support Hartrauft ?
McClurk?1 do not understand them, nor do they
seem to understand themselves. The Giant men
iBstet that liartrauft is in the war of success, while
the Hartranft men deciare that Grant Is fas owsca
cle to harmony. The Uartranft men are right, but
the Grant men have might on their side, and It
looks as If they meant to render Hartranft's elec
tion Impossible. If they do there will be a merry
reckoning, but as the reckoning is likely to come
anrhow It's no matter about that side amusement.
Corrbspondbnt?Will the liberals nominate a
State ticket f
MoClurk?I cannot speak for them, as the State
Committee has not met. I don't think, however,
that the liberal republicans wish to amuse them
selves in this fight by firing blank cartridges. I
take it that they will vote so ss to tell for every
office from President down to Alderman. I am not
much in favor of
ornamental politics.
That is the property of boys and fools, and I have
got pust the first and hope to steer clear of the last.
It would be folly to elect a President and not carry
United States Senators, Governors, Congressmen
and Legislators In harmony with the national move
ment. The people want a new national departure,
and they must carry every department of power to
effect it.
This much Information collected I took my de
parture, satisfied that McClurc Is In earnest in tills
tight, and, no matter what others may do, he will
stick to the ticket that was born of the Cincinnati
Convention, and should victory perch upon the
banners of "our later Franklin," Hectare'* reward
will he cortaln, and in keeping with the services
he shall have rendered his new chieftain.

FLORIDA.
The Cincinnati Nominations Not Treated
with Great Favor la the Sunny State.
Tallahassee, May 10,1872.
The State organ here, with an enterprise seldom
seen in Florida Journalism, made known to the
people of this section in its issue of the 3d inst. the
result of the Cincinnati Convention. The ticket Is
regarded here as slightly weak, and will probably
not take away many hundred votes from the regu
lar republican nominee In the entire State. The
colored people hero seem to look upon Greeley
with suspicion on account of his balling
Jeff Davis and some other freaks of the
philosopher, nnd with this element he is
undoubtedly not the most popular man that
could havo been selected, with the liberal
democrats he is still less a favorite. At a caucus of
the more prominent leaders of the democracy in
this section, held a few oyenlngs ago, it was deter
mined that In no event should Greeley have their
support, and a demand was made lor a regular
democratic convention and nominee. With the se
cession element he is positively objectionable, as
he is regarded by them as the champion of all the
constitutional amendments and legal enactments
that have been laid so heavily on tho Southern
peoplo. If It was Intended, therefore, by tho mem
bers of the Cincinnati Convention that its ticket
Bhould address Itself to the people of the entire
SoutU for snccess in the coming Presidential cam
paign, It will be a failure In this part at least, If
publlo sentiment, as publicly expressed, clearly
represents the act ual condition of the politicians on
the subject.

DOM PEDRO II.
A Herald Correspondent's Interview wRb
the Emperor of Brazil.
Appearance of the Model
8overel|fu.
How He Was Impressed with His Grand Too
and How Brazil is Likely to
Benefit by It.
Dom Pedro's Desire to Visit the
United States.
Rio Janeiro, Brazil, April 6,ISTfi.
In ray last letter I gave an account of the retara
of the Emperor. It Is now my privilege to record
his Impressions of his travels. Perhaps not In tho
history of royalty has there ever been known socti
a tour as that just now finished by the arrival again
in his capital of Dom Pedro II., tho Emperor of
Brazil?one wlileh was quite original la its kind,
perfect in Its design, thorough and complete In Its
execution. Though Dom Pedro II. Is a Brazilian
born, he does not Beem to be possessed of that
vautty which is satisfied with Its own shallow
ness, aud which is palpable In so many Brazil
ians of position; neither has he longed for
foreign travel In order to satisfy simply the
desire for the pleasures of souse, but to obtain a
sight and a knowledge of all those evidences of
modern advance, material and mental, a thorough
knowledge of which, or at least a desire to know of
which, Is even more becoming In the sovereign
than lu the subject. With the exception of a short
journey up the coast to Bahla and Pernambnco and
his limited absence during the Paraguayan war,
Dom Pedro II. has never been away from his capital,
this city or Rio Janeiro.
Systematic In his habits, simple and plnln In hlfl
personal deslreB and tastcB, a perfect economist of
? time, and with an Intense longing for knowledge of
all kinds, the Emperor of Brazil has been at tho
same time
A MODE!. 80VEREI0N,
seeking only the nation's good and never seeming
to think of personal advancement or aggrandize
ment, and also a hard and thorough student. Shut
out from a knowledge of the rest of the world, as
he was for many years, an extended tour abroad
has been a pet scheme of his, long cherished, but
not until the close of the Paraguayan war did the
opportunity seem to be possible for its execution;
and oven thon there were many who hesitated not
to put obstacles In tho way of his departure, de
claring a prolonged absence unconstitutional, and
in various ways placing Impediments before him,
which at times seemed unsurmountable.
Desirous, or courso, that tho Herald should
know something of the Impressions which tlUa
absence has made upon His Imperial Hlghnesa
I early made formal application for an Interview,
scarcely hoping?certainly not strong In the faith?
that It would bo grantod; for, with the transferor
authority from tho Princess Regente to her father
and tho many official subjects which demanded his
Immediate attention, It was certainly presumable
that every moment would be occupied. I was,
then, pleasantly surprised when I received, in
answer to my card and application,
PERMISSION TO MEET THE EMPEROR
at Ills palace at noon on the 4th Inst. At the
proper time I presented myself, and In due courae
was conducted to a small ante-room, opening from
a reception room, where many officials and a num
ber of civilians were waiting, and, precisely at the
appointed time, the Emperor, dressed in plain
black, came from the reception room Into the
smaller ante-room, where I was, and walked toward
me, cordially extending bis band; and, as he
always seemed pleased to break from the custom of
having his hand sainted by the Ups of all who were
permitted to meet him, so now he seems to mani
fest a desire to entirely abolish the custom.
He took mo warmly by the hand, and when I re>
malned standing, kindly requested me to be seated.
I gave expression to the gratification which hie
family and friends must feel In
HIS IMPROVED PHYSICAL APPEARANCE. J
for his fhee wore a more healthy color, and the
lines by which It is marked seem less apparent
than of old. He replied that he was materially In
better physical oondltlon than when he went
away; that such freedom from the cares of State
and official rqjitlne was what he had long desired;
that he had endeavored carefully to abstain from
nndue excitement, and maintain such a course at
habit as would give to his system the strength
which he needed; that he had
TRIED TO IMPROVE EACH MOMENT
as it passed, and was conscious that he had re>
oeived great benefit, mentally as well as physically;
that lands and cities and localities, and men of the
Old World, familiar to him by reading, he had now
visited and seen, and felt a personal interest whieb
no reading could occasion.
I took opportunity to make Indirect allusion to
the possible benefit which Br&zll must realize from
this absence, now that he had returned, when bm
replied that he was not prepared to oxDress him
self on that subject; that of course he had given the
matter much thonght, but was by no means at lib
erty to do precisely as he would desire, and must
make appllcatlous or changes with much discretion;
that lie kpew that Brazil needed the energy which
made the countries of the Old World such points of
Industry and thrift, and it was his earnest desire to
see his native land making more rapid progress
In reply to my question, which of the countries of
Enrope had made the more pleasing Impression
upon him, be answered that
ENGLAND AND ORRMANY
he must lpok back upon as tho most interesting
lands he bad visited, and In their Immediate future
more fraught with vital Interests to tho peace and
welfare of Europe. France, he said, seemed ut
terly prostrate, and tho want of nnanimlty and
high national aim was yet rending the country.
When I said I believed the pcoplo of the United'
States were disappointed in his not extending his
Journey to that land, he replied that a visit thert
had entered iuto his earlier arrangements, bnt he
considered It Injudicious to be a longer time away,
and It. was manifestly impossible for him to spend
any loss time In Europe and see and know of It with'
any proper degreo of satisfaction; that
A tisrr TO TUB UNITED STATES
still entered Into his calculations, and he hoped the
time was not far distant when he should be per
mitted to see a people and a land where ha'i been
made such unprecedented strips J[p the sclcnco of
government and In natibna' profPesiif TTCS5r**T""7v
The half hour having expired he kindly extended
his hand and grasped ray own, and bidding mo
gO^dhy turned Wo'the reception room, and I was
flliowiTto myearrlage. denial and kind in his man
ner, It was a peculiarly pleasing Interview, and the
Emperor has made such progress with his English
as to speak with much freedom and apparently
little effort.
Last evening the rcsidance of the Conda d'Bo
and the whole vicinity were illuminated in a rtost
charming and original manner, and the effect wan
very beautiful. The fashion nnd beauty of Rio wero

among the people and nround the grounds during

formal reception at the palace for the forctgu am

months, when he will visit the United States on his
way to Japan, China nud India.
