YACHTING.
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. J., attracted much atten
tion as she lay alongside the Oracle, and It looked
as If by Instinct she had selected a position adjoin

Some tittle time elapsed while Mr. J. M. Sawyer,
who nuneared to be one of the moving spirits In
the arrangements, steamed through the fleet and
gave the sailing masters their imrtinK liistrui^tlon. .

began to prepare for the start. There was a plea

was fired at liih. 8m.. and ? .10 schooners and tlrst j

fleet made a pretty picture as they ran before tne
wind toward the Narrows, each class keeping to
nether In a bunch. 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

The breeze had now nearly entirely deserted the
winged racers, and they did not appear to be mak
ing much headway. 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 race home was a very tame affair, as al
though In all other respects the weather was beau
tiful there was a sad absence of wind. 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. The following is the official time of arrival :?

schooner yachts; second, a prize for all sloop
yachts over forty five feet, long on water line; third,
a price for all sloop yachts over thirty and under
forty-live feet long on water line: fourth, a prize
for all yachts (open boats) twenty-six feet and over
on water line. It Is understood that the yachts of
the Ilrooklyn Yacht Club had the privilege of con
testing for the above prizes, In addition to the
regular prizes of the club, for which they alone can
compete. In addition to tho above the regular
prizes of the club were as follows:? Two prizes for
each class of yachts: one to be sailed for on time
allowance, and one (the (lag officer's prize) to be
awarded to the llrst yacht in, regardless of time
allowance.
The prizes were awarded as follows :?

The William Fletcher, Captain Emmons, was, as
usual, ably handled, and the Judges transacted
their arduous duties with care and precision.
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.

was se$ down for eight o'^ock.
Mr. Van Voorst, the President, presided. In
calling the dinner party to frugal order, he declared
that the object of the International was not to drag I
down the rich to the level of the poor, but that the
poor, In fact all classes, should be made equal |
sharers In nil the enjoyments of life, which the rich ,
now monopolized. 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! Osborne Ward, while the dishes with cherries
were being passed around amonir the ladles, gave
what was termed a slight Insljrht Into the strength
of the International. Ills facts and figures were ,
not new. and so they need not be recapltu- t
lated He closed bv stating that the trades |
unions of this country were an outgrowth |
of the International; had, Indeed, sprung from
the seeds which the society had sown abroad. The i
"strikes'' now going on In the city, he declared, |
wave evidence of the fruit brought forth by the In
ternational. They were founded on justice, anil. If .
properly conducted, would be successful, despite ,
the combined edorts of the various employers to
crush the movement. Kven though the members
of the various trades were not all mepibers of the i
International, they had the lull sympathies of the .
society, and might one day. If ban! pressed, obtain 1
more than their sympathies.
Mine. Unlet, the wile of the host of the evening, j
*as called upon for a toast. In responding she re- ,
marked that Internationalists should remember i
that the revolution or '4H was not merely a political
revolution? It was a social revolution. I hat being ;
ho she had (treat pleasure In drinking to "The Mar
tvr* of "4S." The toast was drunk with all the hon
ors, as was that of Mr. Ward, "La Socl?t6 Interna
tionale, et la repnbllque unlverselle." ,
Several members then spoke briefly in French ,
and Qerman, alter which the dinner came to a
close. ,

TROTJTiG AT FLEETWOOD.
? ?
Cast If Boy Wln< After a WeU-Contc?ted
Rare of Mix Ilcata.
An expected, the trot announced to take place at
Fleetwood Park yesterday between Pflfer'a chest- |
nut mare Grace Uertram, Roden's bay gelding |
Cattle Boy and Week's brown horse Daniel Boone,
for a purse and .sweepstake of |l,000, drew quite a
large attendance. Previous to the start and up to
the tlfth heat Grace Bertram was the favorite. But
the trot resulted in one of those sure things that
will occasionally fall through.
First Heal.? At the second attempt the word was
given to almost a dead even start, Grace Bertram
on the inside, castle Boy second ijnd Daniel Boone
on the outside. In the turn the latter broke, and
lost several lengths. The other two In the mean
while were trotting very steadily, so that Grace led a
length at the quarter in thirty-seven seconds, Oas- |
tlo Boy lecond, several lengths in front of Daniel
Boone. 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 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. The appearance of that sea

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.

the audience became convulsed with excitement

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
