The Fifteenth Annual and Fifth Union Regatta of tiie Brooklyn Yaebi Club. THIRTY YACHTS IN THE REGATTA The Schooner Madeleine Wins the Club and the Eva the Union Prize. MAGNIFICENT SAILING OF THE META, The Meta and Meteor Win All Prizes in Their Classes and the <?ui Vive and Sophia Those in the Seeond Class. The fifteenth annual and fifth Union Regatta of the Brooklyn Yacht Club was sailed yesterday, over their regular regatta course, and proved one of the most Interesting aquatic events that has taken place this season. The Brooklyn Club, although not mustering a numerous fleet of large schooners, lias always held the best sloop regattas in New York waters, and yesterday they were very for tunate in the number and beauty of the yachts of that class that competed in the regatta. The steamers William Fletcher and Magenta, the rormer carrying the judges and members of the press and the latter laden with the guests of the club, left Martin's dock, Brooklyn, at eleven o'clock yesterday morning and steamed down to the starting point off Bay Bidge. The weather was charming, and, in fact, every thing appeared favorable to a successful issue of the event of the day. There was a pleasant northerly breeze, of sufficient strength to raise a gentle rip ple on the surface and give the yachtsmen visions of club topsails, staysails and balloon gibs to aid in a fast run to the Southwest Spit. The Regatta Committee? Messrs. W. H. Pegg, H. H. Mott, G. L. Haight, B. E. Military, John Oakey, J. M. Sawyer, D. S. Hines, James S. Dean, Samuel Hall and H. Baragwanath? had evidently been early to work, as when the Magenta and William Fletcher arrived olf Bay IUdge they were anchored as fol lows: ? Schooners abreast of eadh other, 200 feet apart, off Bay Kidge, east to west, jibs down; sloops, first class, lu line, 600 yards to the north ward of the schooners, in like order; sloops, second class, 500 yards to the northward of the first class sloops, in like order ; sloops, third (lass, fioo yards to the northward of the second class sloops, in like order. i... The fleet looked very picturesque as they lay auletly riding at auchor and their decks alive with the mariners, who waited Impatiently for the start ing signal, and whose hopeH were each centred In victory The new sloop yacht lately built y McUelian, of Pamrapo, N.

The second gun | was fired at liih. 8m.. and ? .10 schooners and tlrst j cla'is sloops immedlatelj commenced getting up their anchors. The Madeleine, with a big club top sail set, ran up her throe jibs, and keeping her i boom the port side, started about fifteen seconds behind the Ianthe, which being the smallest RclioOner was the first to fill away.

Passing by Fort Tompkins, the Madeleine led the schooners, followed pretty closely by the Ianthe, which was a cable length in advance of the Kva. Mr. Beling s new sloop-yacht Meta soon began to show her superiority over the rest of her class, as she hud already taken the lead or the fleet. The Oracle came next, a short dis tance ahead of the Addle, Captain, Mary and Undine. Running up toward v quarantine nasriTAU the Meta and Oracle were both with their booms on the Dort side, when the latter hauled up a couple of points and tried to get to windward of tiie Meta but the latter was handled too cleverly to be caught in such a t rap, and answering the ?ull, came up on the same Hue and held her ? v an t iire The Addle wa< about three cable lengths to leeward of the Oracle and was leading Joe his worth In the Captain. At l'ih. 5am. the was leading the fleet, with the Oracle about fifty yards *ntcrn. The Meta passed buoy 11, on the WEST BANS. . at 13h. 67m.. followed by the Oracle at 12h. 5sm. v.* The Oracle now took In the spreader off her lib topsail. The main excitement in the regatta was centred l?POB tne race between the flrst class ?inn.w niid lt was so general that two ?f the colored gcntlviucn w hoard the Fletcher eonld restrain their gambling propensities no longer. and each staked twenty-flve cents, selecting the Meta and Oracle an their respective champions. Tho Addle pasaed buoy 11 at 1:1:30, with her boom on the port side and her Jib rigged with a spreader on the gtarboai d side. The Eva wan following alter the Madeleine, and at l:tl:30 hauled up a couple of points and tried to crowd the Madeleine, but the lat ter, alter a slight struggle, slipped ahead and re tained her lead. At i:li the Oracle rigged a spreader on her balloon jib topsail and she followed arter the Meta, tossing the spray from her bowsiu a saucy style, as if indignant at being pressed so bard by an antagonist new to these waters. The Meta jibed her boom over at 1:26, a manoeuvre which was followed by the Oracle, which hung to her like a leech. The sloops Addle and Captain also sent their booms over, and the Madeleine jibed at 1 :l'0:30. Coming up to the SOOTBWMV SI' IT tno Meta appeared to have a good lead, ami although the breeze had been dying a wuy it did not appear to affect her sailing qualities, as she kept sicadllv gaining on the Gracie. The Meta rounded the <takelioat, on the Southwest Spit, and, haul ing up on the wind, took In her balloonjlb topsail. She was followed a couple of minutes later by tho Gracie, which went round with all her kites flying. Tiie Addie was next boat, with the Undine a short distance behind, the latter leading* the Mary by half a minute. The Undine and Mary came up to the stakehoat so close together that a foul was feared, and the Mary had to jibe in order to avoid such a dilemma, anil thereby lost two or three minutes be fore she got on her course. The Captain came next, crowded pretty closely by THE MAPELRINK, which was sailing well for a big boat in such a light breeze. The lanthe rounded about two minutes in advance of the Eva, and stuck to her balloon top sail, which she succeeded in getting pretty flat. The (}ul Vive and Sophia rounded nearly together, followed a few minutes later by the Jeannette, which yacht was about half a minute in advance of the t'ndlne, of Jersey City. The Met eor c,ame next, leading the Hella, Flying Cloud and Maude by abotu twenty seconds. Of these the Jeannette, Bella, Meteor and Maude squared away and started for home with half their journey completed. The oriental and W. T. Lee were the next round, and they likewise started homeward lionnd. The next to pass were the Vivid, Emily and Twilight, followed shortly afterwards by the Favorlta, B. E. Mallory and Aquatea. The yachts rounded at the following time SCHOONERS. 11 M S H M & Madeleine 1 3K 11 Eva l' 41 li Ianilie I 39 47 FIRST CLASH BLOOF8.

The William Fletcher started for the buoy In Gedney's Channel, as the judges In tended, If possible, to take the time of the second class sloops before going on to the Lightship. After waiting a short time at that locality, and perceiv ing that if they waited much longer the Meta would arrive at the Lightship before them, they steamed to look after her. The Meta did not appear to re quire wind to make her move, as she was getting through the water pretty fast and giving the Gracie a bad beating. As the Meta came up to the Light ship she caught a light breeze from the eastward, which necessitated her hauling her sheets pretty flat. The Oracie came next, followed pretty closely by the Madeleine. The former caught the easterly breeze at 8h. aim., and took the spreader out of her Jib topsail. The Meta tacked at 3h. 40m. 30s? and, after making a short stretch, went about and shortly afterwards rounded the Lightship and started with full sheets for home, via the Swash Channel. The Gracie came round next, fol lowed by the Madeleine. Trie Addle rounded about twenty minutes later, leading the Undine and Cap tain. After a lapse of abont seven minutes the Mary went round about, a minute in advance of the Eva, which was some distance ahead of the lanthe. The yachts rounded the Lightship as follows:? SCHOONERS.

The Qui Vive, however, had managed to secure sufficient air to enable her to get a clear lead of the Sophia. The Meta was attracting general attention, as It whs extraordinary how she got so fast through the water with so little motive power, if a stranger had perceived any smoke from her galley pipe he would certainly have imagined she had a small screw propelling her gentlv through the water. The Meta passed the buoy In Gedney's Channel at. 4h. 45m., a good two miles ahead of anything in her class. The Onl Vive led the Sophia by about five minutes, and the Undine, of Jersey City, came next. As the yachts came up to *he Narrows they were met by a lively breeze Itom the northward, of just sufficient strength to srart tiie white cat>*. This occasioned a heat home and broujrht. the sail ing qualities of the yachts into mil play. The Qui Vive appeared to like the test on the wind pretty well, and arrived home about six minutes in advance of the Sophia, who was followed some eight minutes later by the Undine. The small boats had all ar rived some two or three hours before, led by THE METEOR, another of Pat McOlehan's build. The Meta arrived home first In her class and received a most enthusi astic reception as she passed the stakehoat. She would have beaten the Gracie, the second yacht, considerably worse If the wind had held from the eastward; but as she was first to catch the air from the northward and had to beat through the Nar rows, the Gracie held the easterly breeze until she came up within half a mile of the Meta. The Fly ing Cloud came home next, followed by the Emily, Vivid, Addle, Undine, Captain, Madeleine and Eva, in the order named. The lanthe brought tip the rear.

Messrs. Van Dyke and Ames were especially atten tive to the guests oi the club, while Captain Sam uels and Mr. Mailory followed the movements of the yachts. "YACHTING AND CAVORTING. [From the New Tork World, June 22, 1872.] It Is a curious thing that while American yachts are steadily Increasing In number and Improving in speed and stanchness the regattas, which are the main public tests of their quality, should he rather declining In interest. At least it Is so with the New York Yacht Club, which until a very few years ago wag the only organization in which a large yacht had'a chance really to try her powers. The regatta on Thursday may have been a very pretty sight to see, hut all reports seem to agree that as a test of speed and seaworthiness It amounted to nothing. Not one of the large keel yachts of deep draught, not even a centreboard yacht, with one exception, built to go to sea In, was entered In It. And it was by no means the fastest of these that took the prizes, at least In the prize for schooners. There were only llfteen entries altogether, against a much larger number last year. That the interest in the regatta lias fallen off, while the Interest In yachting has Increased, must be ascribed to some misfortune or some mismanage ment on the part of the New York Yaclit Club itself. The truth Is that, the New York Yacht Club course, though admirable to sail small sloops over, such as those that did so well in the regatta of Thursday, is upt a fair purge for large ecu-going yachts. It requires careful pilotage (or a large yacht to go over | it safely, and while there is so much deep water at i our ooors it seems a pity to choose a conrse wherein : a yaeiitinau has to divert to avoiding reefs any por : lion of the skill and attention all of which he needs ! lor the management of his tMtat without reference ! to them. Ou Thursday one yacht got aground and lost position in t lie race on this account. Moreover, with such a wind as prevails at this season two- , third* of the course are under the lee of the land. 1 1 The reports say that the only exciting struggle of 1 the regatta of Thursday which gave the j ' contesting boats a chance to show what j 1 was in tnem took place from Sandy Hook to . 1 the lightship and back. This is the only ! I part of the course which is really open to the wind. ; I And one wonders why. when the race over this part of the course was found so Interesting, the whole coarse might not >>e so laid out as to give the advantages which this tract of it possesses. We j have been iu the habit of receiving with great dis favor any suggestions from Mr. Ashbury. Mr. Ash ; bury has already brought objections to the club i ' course. But we ought not to assume that those ' objections are absurd even if Mr. Ashbury did briug them. Because Mr. Ashbury pointed oiit the undeniable fact that when American sea-going yachts made a match they abandoned the club course and went outside or to Newport to sail it. I To have the chief event of the yachting year de- 1 elded over such a course Is a bad thing, inasmuch > as it tends to discountenance what everybody de- j %rcs to encourage? the building of sea-going yachts, j Yachts are built for speed, and as every yacht Is said to sail fast when alone the only test of speed Is a match, or, still better, a regatta. From the regatta of the New York Yacht Club all such yachts are vir tually debarred. There are very few Instances In deed of the prize In the annual regatta having fallen to a vacht in which the owucror any other prudent person would like tu trust himself out at sea In foul weather. For it Is not only t he course bat the time appointed for the regatta, or rather it is the course and the time taken together, which makes it not worth the while of the best yachts to compete In it. In a landlocked course as this is for over two-thirds of Its extent there Is plenty of wind sometimes for the largest yachts. Rut unless there Is a stormy I breeze outside the wind is not strong enough to exhibit their best points. And 011 the 20th or June th? chances decidedly are that there will be no breeze. of course, it may be said, in answer to all this, that the regatta Is intended not so much to be a test of speed and seaworthiness and seamanship as to be a pretty and picturesque exhibition, and to afford the participants in it and the spectators of It a pleasant holiday. In this point of view the pres ent regatta is highly successful, and its success would doubtless be marred il an invariable or a I probable Incident of it were a half dozen steamers I full of seasick landsmen and ladies. But unluckily It is not in this point of view that the participants in it regard it. For they give prizes, presumably lor speed and seamanship and seaworthiness, and bestow them upon the vessels which first complete the land-locked circuit, under the influence of capri cious and casual catspaws of wind; and the owners of the vessels cherish these things and even exhibit, them with a certain pride as if they were nautical trophies. In fact, they are nothing of the sort. If the yacht club chooses to make an annual proces sioh of the Nucentaur. and to wed a sea warranted not to affect the most delicate sensibilities, we shall I never say them nay. Only do not let them call tills pageant (which may be a very pretty pageant) a | "regatta," and pretend to believe that success In it | connts for anything as a testimony 10 the goodness i i of the boat which succeeds in it : for the effect of ; | such a pret>nWon is to sink yachting, which is eml- ? I nentlv entitled to be called a "manly" sport l?v the skill and the courage which the proper prac | tlce of it requires, to the level of such heroic achievements us playing poker and leading the | German. BAILING OR DRIFTING. [From the Now York Times, June 2"-.] The annual regatta of the New York Yacht Club was drifted rather than sailed. There were but llfteen entries, all of them being centreboard boats. Outside of the Hook there was a moderate breeze, but on the homestretch the boats drifted with the tide, the breeze being hardly perceptible. Is it not time that the club should make a change in the day of their annual regatta V For several years the 20th of June has been the day selected, and as a rule that dav has brought a ilead calm? at least inside the bay. Had it been Proposed to select a dav for the regatta which should holler the crratest probability of a total want or wind, a careful stndent of meteorological statistics would doubtless *}&\c s1e)c^0<,} the last week in June. The yachtsmen have already learned to expect a calm ou that dav. On Thursday last not a keel boat was entered, simply because the owners of keel yachts knew that if there should happen to be any breeze i at all , it would, in all probability, be so light as to rendi r ?these vessels useless In a contest with | cralt. The experience of Thursday will confirm I them in this belief, and hereafter we may expect to see the regatta of the 20th of June confined ex cluslvely to the smaller vessels of the fleet. Kven then lleht boats can give no Pro(|J their comparative sailing abilities without more wind than we have any reason to look for on the day of the regatta. Trie finish of the race of Thursday was an absurdity, considered as a test of relative speed. The vessels i drifted slowiv homeward In a confused crowd, and the winning yacht, the Ianthe-to whose comman der credit Ih certainly due for the way In which she was handled? Is a vessel universa?y conceded to > be I inferior In speed to a large proportion of her com I Pinh? members of the New York Yacht Club desire to have a pleasant, quiet picnic- excursion, let 'hem contnue to muster and spread their sails tn company | on the 20th of June, but do not let thcni call their gathering a regatta. For a regatta a breeze la ige in erallv thought to be a necessity, and by selecting the 20th of June the yachtsmen secure the best pos- | slble chance oi a calm. . New York Is proud of her yacht fleet, and Is keenly interested in whatever concerns its welfare. A drifting match is not, however, an Interesting spectacle, and in time the puolic will grow tlred of attending it. The yacht men ought to select almost anv dav In May or September for their regatta. They would then have at least a fair chance of a good working breeze. The large seagoing keel boats would then enter the race, and the result would be a fair test of the speed or all classes of vessels en gaged In the contest. The 2ot.h of June lias been thoroughly tried and in point of wind found wanting. Let us have no more drifting re pattas on that day, or else letus call them by their riuht names, and no longer hold out the pretence that yachts can prove their sailing qualities in a dead' calm.

The dental portion of the enter tainment wns not begun until nearly ten o'clock, although the hour fixed for the beginning of affairs was se$ down for eight o'^ock. Mr. Van Voorst, the President, presided.

This and nothing more Mr Van Voorst's remarks, brief as they were, seemed to be to the point In the judgment of those present, and were hailed with delight all round the i ft Mr!

In tho backstretch the latter trotted very fast, and closed up almost even with Castle Boy, when he again left his feet, losing a couple of length! be lore ho could be got dowu. Grace, still leading, was a length in front at the half, in 1:18; Castle Boy second and Daniel Boone third. At the foot of the hill Boone began to trot ver\ fast. When they were half way up he had passed Castle Boy and was lapping Grace Ber tram?so that, at the three-quarters Grace only led half a length. In the turn Boone took the lead, with Grace still on the inside and Castle Boy In the middle. The ttnisli was very tine, all three lapping as they passed under the string, with Boone a half length In front of Grace Bertram, who was about the same distance in front of castle Boy. Time, 2:35. Snow l Unit.? Notwithstanding that Daniel Boone was ttte winner of the previous heat Grace Ber tram sold freelv as the choice over the .other two. At the tlfth attempt the word was given, with Castle Bov aud Daniel Boone leading and Grace about a length behind thein. In the turn Boone hit hlmseir and broke badly, Castle Boy taking the lead, with Grace second. At the quarter, which was done in thlrty-slx seconds, Castle Boy led two lengths, with Grace about four lengths in front of Boone. Going along the backstretcli Boone fell back to lully six lengths behind Grace, who was about two lengths behind the Boy when he passed the half. Iwhlch was made in 1:12*4. Coming up the hill the horse closed up considerable ot the gap, but was unable to close it up entirely, Castle Boy still leading at the three-quarters, with Bertram second. As they swung Into the homestretch Daniel Boone again broke badlv, Grace Bertram closing up rapidly on Castle Bo.v, but could not. quite get there. Castle Boy winning tin? heat by a length, In 2:80, Daniel Boone pulling up when within the dis tance and walking in. Thtra llfot.?i iiace was still the favorite over the Held, selling for $85. the tleld selling lor $35. At the second attempt the word was given to a very good start, Castle Boy at once showing In front, so that. In the turn he led a length, Grace second and Daniel Boone last, and on a break. Going down the quarter stretch Grace closed upon Cat tle Bov, so that, he only led there a length, In thirty-six seconds, with Itoono third, three lengths away. 1 (iolng along the backstretcli Grace continued to gain on the Boy, and as they passed the half was lapping him, with Boone still behind, but coming fast. At the foot of the hill Grace was up even with Castle Boy, and after trotting a short distance took the lead, Boone having also closed the gap. The three were lapping each other at. the top of tho hill; Boone, however, again broke and lost, a couple of lengths. At the three-quarter pole Grace led a length, where I she remained, winning the heat by two lengths in 2:04',, Castle Boy second, fully six lengths In front | of Daniel Boone, who pulled up when inside the distance. , , , h\>nrth lleat.? The race was now looked upon as 1 a dead sure thing for Grace Bertram, ami few, ir I anv, pools were sold on the result. At the tlrst at tempt the word was given, witti Daniel Boone a 1 half length In front of the other two. In the turn i Castle Boy broke and fell back last, Grace Bertram 1 going to the front, so that when half way dowu tho t at retell she was leading two lengths. At the quar ter she led two lengths, in thirty-seven seconds, with Boone second and two lengths In front of Castle Boy. In the turn Castle Boy closed up the gup, and as they showed In the backstretch was a length In front of Boone: Bertram was still leading, and at the half was two lengths In front of the Bov. At the foot of the lilll she came back a trifle, so that all three were almost even. Grace, however, again went to the front, and at the three-quarters was leading by two lengths. A slight break, however, carried her back to Castle Boy, and lor a second it looked as If Hoden might, have taken the lead. On coming Into the straight Bertram again got a clear lead aud trotted home the winner of the heat by a length. In 2:31 '.j, Castle Boy second, a length In front of Daniel Boone. Much dissatisfaction was expressed by those pres ent. who had backed Castle Boy at Boden's driving, the Judges being requested to put In another driver behind the Bov. This the Judges did not see At to do, as Hoden bad not, in their Judgment, done any act requiring such action on their part. Fifth Heat.? Again at the tlrst attempt the word was' given to a good start, with Boone a trine In front; in the turn, however, he broke badlv and fell back last, Cra^e Bertram going to the front and Castle Boy aecoiid. At the quarter (Jrace led two lengths, In thirty-seven seconds, with Custle Boy about the same distance In front of Daniel Boone. In the backstretch the Boy and Boone closed up on Bertram, who at the gate left Iter feet, but quickly settled, and at the half led two lengths, having gone there In 1 : 14. At the foot of the hill she again nroke badlv, and before she could settle down Castle Boy ami Daniel Boone were In front, | of the mare, Boden taking the pole at the three I quarters, he led two lengths. In the turn Bert ram again got to her w ork and at the drawgale passed Boone, but could not overtake Castle Boy, who Jog ged in an easy winner by two lengths, In 2:32&, Grace Bertram second and Daniel Boone third. Sixth Unit.? Between the heats a few pools were sold with the Held as the favorite against the mare. All three sweated out well and at the first attempt got off well togethcrf Castle Boy taking the lead, with Daniel Boone second and Grace Bertram third. In the turn, however, Grace went up to second, making play for the lead. But as it, was do or die with Hoden, he elected to keep the Boy well to the front. At tho quarter he led two i lengths In thirty-six and a half seconds, at the half he was three lengths In front of Grace, who was lap ped by Boone. Coming up the hill both Grace and Daniel closed up a trifle on the Boy. Swinging Into the homestretch, the race became exciting bet ween Bertram and Castle Boy; the latter, however, re tained the lead, winning the heat, and the race by a length in 2:33 J,', Bertram second aud Boone third. MATCH $500 ? MII.E ANP KEI'EAT. Between the Ilrst, second and third heats of the above race a match for $250 aside was trotted be tween I'. Garry's bay gelding Garryowen and Thomas Barrett's sorrel mare Annie Doyle, mile and repeat. On ringing up the horses Johnny Murphy appeared behind Annie Doyle. Both heats were exactly alike, Doyle taking the lead at the word, while Garrvowen would break so badly that it was necessary to bring him almost to a dead standstill Itefore he could be Induced to trot. In the meantime Annie was jogging steadily along, winning both heats by almost a hundred yards, the tlrst In 3:17 and the second In 2:62 \. Appended Is a summarv of the two trots:?

THE SLIDING SCALE ADMISSION FEE, i Bostonian Generosity Reaching Only to the Free List. THE ONLY SUPPORTS OF THE HUB-BUB Strauss, Abt, Godfrey and the Foreign Rands. The Performances and Attendance Yesterday. Coliseum, Boston, June 22, 1872. here are 110 evidences of decline either in the attendance or popular enthusiasm over Gllmore's Jubilee. The attendance to-day was at, out equal to the largest number present during any single day of the week, and the curious crowds lingering out side the Coliseum and promenading the city were even larger. For Boston and Bostonlans the day was a grand one? profitable, pleasant and all that sort of thing which combines to tickle the vanltyr . ^ankees-? but for all this it may be said U at the glorious days of the Jubilee are at an end. All the efforts of the Irrepressible Olimore have failed to avert the inevitable catastrophe. It Is now well known that from the tint the hopes of the projecters were blasted, and, notwithstanding the great struggle made to keep the best side out, In expectation that a ftiroro would be created, no suf ficient response has been made by the public The truth is that, with nil its pretended admiration for music, Boston is actuated by a mer cantile spirit, and wished to get the article as cheaply as possible. Hence the free list has been drawn upon to an enormous extent; indeed it is calculated that half the visitors were deadheads. With the prospect of a heavy loss be fore them, under the most favorable circumstances the responsible directors have made up their minds to lessen the expenses by dismissing a large body of their best performers. The select chorus known as the -bouquet of artists" and made up or the New York operatic choruses, appeared to-day for the last time, as the condition of the finances will no longer permit their retention. It is rumored on good authority that the orchestra will also lose some t wo hundred and fifty members, and that reductions will be constantly made until the Jubilee has been brought to an end. The only com pensation that will be offered for these losses will be the further Introduction or amateur singers. But, judging from the results obtained with the present enormous chorus, this expedient will not even in a polite way, counterbalance the loss of the performance. I A PAY OK DISAPPOINTMENT. j To-day may be taken as a sample of the Jubilee at its best. It was, to say the least, disappointing. A chorus of 20,000 looks exceedingly grand on paper and still more formidable as the members sit In the flesh before the eyes.

Tliis fairlv opened the proceedings, and was followed bv the I new National Hvmn, written by Mr. Kichbcrg who ' conducted. This brought the chorus Into acUon ' * ft?,r,;.oly ^V^etory results: the nam" defect which marked the whole subsequent d "r form ji nee was at oncc noticeable ? povertv in volume of the voices. The niece was not, however very exacting, and with the exception mentioned passed off evenly. Scarcely h id the sounds X away when a sm ill, wlry-looklng little man with Jong hair* advanced and assumed the Mton in the distance he looked like a little black speck, but full of vigor and action. This vu U.e celebrated Herr Johann Stranss, about whom most people have heard. His manner of conduct ing is somewhat angular, and there Is the suspicion of a constant striving after effect; but when the man is exam ined closely It will be discovered to be natura not affected, in him. r-lng his violin bow as a Mton, he managed to keep the Immense ,.7 chestra well together, and whether he Addled? as he did vigorously at times-or lic it time In his en thnslastlc, energetic manner, there was something In the man which told that he was thorough v wr ' n't pin he work before him. It was InSly in' I te resting to listen to the large and inteJijuvut orchestra translating for us one of Strauss' own works; the color and thought of the composer w."

Considering the short time the musiciana have had for rehearsal it is fairly astonishing,? j they do so well; but this Is, of coiirse. no defence or the system However, the general Impress on n, ? by the orchestra was b.v no means so as might have been expected* the in,r.

In fact, most U'Joed P?0P'c would have preferred to hear Strauss witn a smaller and more perfectly trained oand, confident that more shades of thought and leeiing would Aud expression, stlil It was in every way a striking perlormance, and merited the rap turous encore which It received from the auditors. In response the orchestra rendered in a spirited manner, the "Tzchern Kersscn" march. The rtrutir, from the third act oP'Krnanl" followed, (iilmorc coir ducting, with lull chorus, organ and military bands. As this selection was given iiefore It offered an ex cellent opportunity to judg ? the real merit or the Jubilee performance. It was perfectly astonishing how WE*K AND WANTINO IN IMI'HKSSIVENEis I the chorus was, except In a few passages yet the slnglo# was well in time, and the unison far aw _______ ? w exceptions, nnt all tfce subtle, delicate pa??acro* were ruthless sacrifices. This chorus of Li),<m is evidently fatal to flexibility an<l nice rendering ol delicate shades of color, on which the charm ol lighter themes depend. MADAMK PR8CHKA r.EIJTVKrt maintained the reputation she has acquired of pos sessing the most wonderful voice that has ever been heard In America. It is Is no exaggeration to say that her vocalisation is more perfect and bril liant than C'arlotta 1'attl's. Her voice is much sweeter, theuotesare purer and possess a mora silvery tone, and are produced with perfect ease. Nature and art have been combined to produce a prodigy. Efforts are being made to engage her for a concert tour, hut the greatness of the Jublleo has given the lady such an immense idea of tho generosity of the American public that It Is said she looks fur Very tltnnnnt terms. The same Is tho case with Strauss, who Is under the impression that his services are worth |'2,ooo a night; but i lie managers are afraid to venture at that figure: so that if we are to have Uerr Strauss In New York tome compromise must be made. A qoiok march, dedicated to Mr. William Inrnan, ore account of his services rendered In the cause of the Jubilee, and composed by Anna Warren, needs no special comment further than that it closed tho first part of the programme. TIIK SECOND PART opened with a selection from "Tannhanser," played by the Prussian band. These excellent mu sicians received a cordial recept ion irom the gen eral public, anil caused an explosion of enthu siasm on the part of some patriotic Germans scat tend through the audience. This band lost somo of the laurels it gained on its first appearance when the French band appeared on the ground and carried everything before it. They were on their metal: but though they played with great correctness and rtisrmttle, the v failed to reconquer their hold ori public opinion. In answer to a warm eucore a cornet solo with variations wan played by llerr Hock, of the band. As a piece ol execution it was delightful. In response to a rap turous encore the band played "nail ! Colombia," which produced the usual amount of enthusiasm, waving of handkerchiefs, Ac. The event anil triumph of the day was, however, the Ari'RAHANCK OK TIIK OOI.OKEP HINORUS, some hundred and fifty strong, who sang a hymn to the tune of "John Brown." Certa nly the execu tion was not good, but the audience is not inclined to be critical. The Introduction of this banquet of black tulips was slmplv a piece of claptrap, bat. It appealed to certain Itostonlan sympathies, and was therefore seized upon without reference to artistic merit. The voices of the colored singers were very weak and thin, and the whole aifair was only saved from ridicule by the wholo chorus Join ing in and giving a weight and linpressiveness to the rendering which otherwise would have been wanting. The singing of the "Benediction of the Poignant" was a complete Jhwo. J.IONI/INU TIIK IIItlTISII ANI> UKItWAN (IRENAntfiRS. Dan Godfrey and his bearskin-hatted band have become veritable lions in Boston, hast night they visited the Boston Theatre and witnessed the per formance of the Vokes Family. The bund struck up "God Save the Queen" at th'dr entrance, and the audience became convulsed with excitement and enthusiasm. The building rang again and again with cheers. The "British Grenadiers March" and "The Gil l 1 Left Behind Me" followed, and at tho departure of the gallant sons of Albion the ovation rivalled that of the Coliseum. To-night the Prussians will be received with all the honors, at the same theatre, and a similar sceno of enthusiasm may be expected. Some evening during the week tie- English band will be dined and wined by the Ancient and Honorable, the crack, military organization of the Eastern States. THE JERSEY MUNICIPAL CONVICTS. Sentence on the Jersey City Police Commission* ers? One Hundred Dollars Fine? The De fendants Continue in Office? The Pater son Freeholders. Tlio Police Commissioners and Chief of Police of Jersey Cltv were called up ior sentence yesterday afternoon on tlie conviction of the late term of court. All were present except the President, Mr. Prltchard. Judge Bedle, accompanied by Judges Randolph, Bohnstedt and Sturgcs, occu pled the bench. Judge Hedle, after the opening of the court, Haiti In the case of the State against McWIUiams, Prltchard, Edmoneon and others the Court have concluded to decline to refer the case to tho Supreme Court, and leave the defendants to their writ of error If they choose to take it. Has counsel anything to say In regard to st nt nca t Mr. Dixon? Nothing, sir. Judge Bedle? The defendant* may stand up. It Is not the practice of the Court to pass sentence iu the absence of a defendant. Mr. Prltchard will b?i here this afternoon at a Inter hour, but the Court cannot, wait, for him. The Court are entirely satis fled from the voucher which was put Into my hands j the evening before last, that the account of theCap I tains and the Chief of Police lor the current, year I Is now square, including the money which the de | fendunt advanced. The Court are very glad that I the case Is lu that shape. The Court do uot mean to Inflict a degrading punish ment, for they think that the ends of Jus tice will be answered by not doing so. Had you obtained thin money for the purpose of private gain nothing would have saved you from the State Prison, because the Court, mean that, so far as they in the exercise of their duty can prevent It, that office shall not be prostituted tor private gain. The Court are satisfied that the money In this case did not, go Into your pockets. It wax paid for political purposes. It is a cross outrage ou the community that money should be paid out for political purposes In this manner Tho effect ol the sentence disqualifies from being a witness and exercising tho elective franchise. Whether It ex tends beyond that, the Court express no opinion at this time. The effect is t lie same whether the Court Imposes a fine of Jl or |600. The matter of finely BOt so very important. The Court have concluded to make no discrimination between you. The self tence ot the Court is that you (including Prltchard} pay a flue of $100 each and costs, and that yon stand committed till the line anil costs are paid. T The trial of the Chief of Police in connection with the Noyes bond robbery case resulted in a verdict of acquittal. It will be seen from the term-* of the sentence that the Commissioners can continue in office till, the question be brought before the Chancellor by al writ of quo warranto. The case of Zebulon Sutton, ex-Chosen Free holder of Passaic county, N. J., which has been on trial during the whole of the past week, was con cluded on Friday night and given to the Jury. On account of t tie hot weather, and tlie fact that Dr. Nightingale and David Berry, two of the jurors, aggregated some six hundred pounds, the jury was locked In the court room Instead of being locked up in the small Jury room. Alter re maining out all night and yesterday until noon, Judge Karkalow had to discharge them, as they could come to no agreement. In fact the foreman told the Court that there would l>e no possibility of an agreement were they kept there for ten years. It Is understood that ten were for conviction and two lor acquittal. The discharge of the Jury accordingly ends tho excitement for the time being, and it ended about as everybody expected, it being the evident Inten tion to make a scapegoat of Sutton, when there were many others of luilucntial standing and of both political parties who were Just as guilty as he. A large hatch of prisoners were yesterday sen tenced In the Paterson Courts for trivial offences. The trial of Van Winkle Bogcrt for the murder of Ransom F. burroughs (the alleged accomplice of Kibble Oarrabrant) will be commenced on Monday. THE FARRAGUT OR PAUL JONES OF THE FUTURE. Tlie examination of pupils of the public and other schools of the Filth Congressional district, candidates for the vacant cadetship in the Naval Academy at Annapolis, will take place on next Thursday morning, at ten o'clock. In the hall of tho Hoard of Kducatlon, corner of Grand and Kim streets, and will lie conducted by Superintendent Kiddle. The boys must bear In 'mind that the ex amination will be In regard to both their scholastic attainments anl physical condition. The Fifth district, according to the new apportionment, em braces nine or the lower wards of the city, the First, to the F.lglith Inclusive, and the Fourteenth. Colonel William R. Roberts, the present Congressional representative by whom the appointment will be made after the result of the contest Is made known; Judge Ed waul J. Hliandley, Marshal Tooker and other well known citizens concluded the nrcliminary arrange ments yesterday, In accordance with which the ex amination Is to lie made In public, participated in by pupils of the private as well as public schools, and tlie result to be determined by a committee formed by the selection of oue citizen from each ward comprising the district. The brief announce mentmade ill yesterday's 11bkai.ii ot this excellent opportunity for s -curing a complete nautical edu cation and of becoming either 'he Farragut or Pa il Jones of their country, has created the greatest excitement among the boys of a section of the city notably the first In point of commercial Interest.
