Long Branch, Augug ?, 1872.
X day of Ciond above ami of the very sunshine of
pleasure below routed on Monmouth Park Course 1
to-day, ami made the second day of the second 1
summer meeting an occasion of unusual Interest. I
The threat of rain which came up with the dawn 1
from the eastern horizon beyond question deterred <
, ?any New Yorkers from risking a trip to the '
course, but It was only a threat, and the ladies '
at Long Branch, being as bravo as they are undoubtedly
fair, took the chances of a four-mile ride
In order to grasp the pleasure of witnessing the
races. Shortly before eight o'clock a mere dripping
of raindrops darkened the dust In the roads, and
though leaden clouds swept In billows over old
Ifonmouth until lute in tho afternoon, they
served to shelter the course from tho heat
ci the sun and tempered the air, so that
11 was pleasant and cool as a dream of
Arcadia. It was eleven o'clock before people at the
Branch bestirred themselves for the races, but from
that time till half-past one they sped along tho
old Eatoktown road In droves. Away over
ounlry bridges, built by "corduroy" engineers,
past wiliow-fringed ponds, under fruit-burdened
trees whose bending branches archcd the road,
through clustering farms, down to where the
bright flags waved lrom the Mansard towers of the
Grand Stand, was a drive that gave a zest to the
after sport of the racers, aud every carriage had
Its fair proportion of still fairer lady occnpants.
which summons the rival steeds to the arena was 1
rung tho curious portion of the crowd amused
themselves by sauntering out to tho stables and
trying to form opinions about the racers; but most
f Hipm warn flleitminintnil TKa nrm t nut m ti to i
of the day were mostly shut up In their j
*nlet, well ventilated stalls, and Jealous boys, i
wfclto nnd black, eyed with cautloue
leer every stranger who approached. Ilere and
there seated on rough benches were owners of j
ome of the best racing blood and nuiscle In the j
land, surrounded by knots of horsemen, ami, of |
course, all were "talking horse," while kinky-haired
Begro stable boys and freckled, sun browned white
urchins?the racing men of the future?stood
wound with mouths agape, and quletlvgulped down | |
all the wisdom that fell from the lips of their oracu- \ (
lar masters. Out in the neatly-mown and verdant |
table jarrtB around the farm house, high-mettled, : '
lender-limbed racers, with blanketed bodies and I
flannel-bandaged leg*, were biing led about for
their airings, while hero and there through the
open stable doors somo pampered victor of the
turf looked out with envious eyes on his rivals |
Stepping daintily over the crisp green sward.
?f great rustic rocking arm chalr3 under the apple
trees at the farm house door sit a group of dls- !
tingiiiHticn horsemen, mm singuiai i.v enough- too,
they are almost all .Southerners. Old " Uncle" John
Harper lingers feebly on the ltont o.f his chair, anil
" takes it all In," but says little. In front
of him nits Price McGrath, lining up the whole
feat, leaning back on his rockers with his elbows
resting on the urm pieces, ami he Is busy chaffering ,
John rhamberlain at his righ tabout the Schell cup.
fohn anil Price "chum" it a great deal ami wouldn't j
hurt each other for the world, but they are pitted iJ
to-day as rivals, and they don't quite like the look
of it. |
The silver pi ize, a massive And bountiful pnnch
feowl, with handles rormed of two Jockeys peering I
over into the busiu, and the stand ornamented !
with racing trappings, is already glistening on a
pedestal in the lawn, in front of the grand stand, !
and Chamberlain tells Mcfiratli that the bowl has got i
to stay at "tne Branch."
Mac (luielly retorts that "If Brennus don't run
faster than Susan Ann that bowl's got to go down |
In Kalmuck,'1 to which John comes back with tho
nlnt that "It will have to be filled a good many
times up North first." While a chuckle Is wriggling
in the throats of the bystanders, among whom are j
Doswell, Tom Jerome, Bruce and other bystanders, |
some one suggests that the C'lay stock Is to be
Bold, and everybody stints out through the i
wicket and across tho road to the Grand Stand to i
see it. "I'ncle" John rises from his chair slowly j
and trudges wearily after them, leaning on his
stick, and with his left arm thrown behind him, us I
though supporting his back. John owns up to sixty- j
nine, and everybody els s.u s ' lie is seventy-live if t
lie Is a day," aud though lie looks It and Is really j
very feeble he doesn't seem to know it. Hy tills j (

one, and seems to he rising into favor j

To tho?o who know nothing of it It } J
may be Interesting to learn that by this system a
limited number or tickets Is sold on each entry In 1
the race, anil that all the purchasers of ticket* on
the winning horse share pro rata the money of the j
losers, the buyers being continually apprised of the
number of tickets sold bv the'figures on the j

o.n Hut the worst, the wildi-st disorder of the
lay followed in the second day, when "old"
klbuera, who was selling for >3 in pools of $180
ind $200, took the run out of (he whole pack and
passed under the string, amid the roars of applause
mil laughter, a victor. There was nrobably more
aioney changed hands on Albuera'i performance
than on all the other races of the day. But the
favorites were bound to go under yesterday, and
ihey went, with a vengeance.
the day's sport yesterday was one of the most Interesting
that could be desired. Everybody was la
sxcellent humor, even the losers, and
,ho onTy anxiety was occasionally when
be rain threatened. Now and then the
flcy became a very chaos of dark clouds tumbling
U> from the sea, and the faces of the watchful
:rowd reflected back vistas of draggled skirts,
Muddy boots and an umbrella famine. Before the
lay closed the black clouds became mountains of
[olden fringed fleece, and all was brilliant and fair
ind pleasant to look upon.
The thoroughbreds Nominee, Zebedee, La Oitana
ind Logan Bruce, announced to have been sold by
fnhn M. Tiny, worn not illsnused of. no bids belnir
)ffcred at which the Bale could be started. Among
he well known people on the course were Harold
Vallack, "Larry" Jerome, Mark Hates, Charles
'olilns, Messrs. C'omu & Lawrence and other
irominent gentlemen.
Tlio track was In admirable order yesterday. A
eery slight sprinkling of rain falling Just previous
to the start laid some of the dust and improved the
joing a trifle. Fast time was anticipated by the
spectators, aud they were not disappointed, particularly
in the first race. Four contests were rim,
the first by two-f car-olds for the Thespian Stakes, a
lash of three-quarters of a mile; the second, a sellng
race of a mile and a half, with the usual allowinces
for the low prices that the horses were to be
told for. Tlie third event was the Long Branch
stakes, two miles, with 100 lbs. up, and the fourth
ace, mile heats, best three in five, which had unortuuately
only two starters. The racing, apart
rom the two-year-old contest, was very inferior,
he time being mlaerably slow. In the two-nilla
lash particularly, where there were four rattling
'ast ones, they made a very unsatisfactory airalr of
it in DOint of time, as each horse seemed too
inxlous for the welfare of the other; and when
runuing began Airoy seemed to take the affair In a
way to suit himself and his owner, but not his
backers. It may be?and probably the thing will
show itself before the week Is out?that Alroy did
not do his best on this occasion; and should this be
the case, we hope the owner, trainer, rider ami ail
concerned may feel happy if they are lucky; yet,
still, they will And in the long run that policy will
not lie Jounu to oe tne nest nonesry. Airoy win rim
to-day In the thrce-milo dash with Preakness, and
we tliink ho will present a different appearance
rrom his mode or running yesterday. Midday beat
Preakness liy a head in this race, and we are inclined
to believe that had Preakness made the running
In the first mile he might have galloped
home an easy winner, provided the owner of Alroy
had not Interfered with the arrangement.
In the first race?the Thespian stakes?thero
were originally twenty-three nominations, but
when the bugle sounded five only responded to the
call. These were Mr. Belmont's bay fllly Mcdora,
bv Kentucky, dam Camilla; H. P. McGrath's bay
colt Tom Howling, by Lexington, dam Lucy Fowler;
L. W. Jerome's bay colt, by Lexington, dam Kitty
Clark; W. J. Bacon's chestnut fllfy Dolorosa, by
Exchequer, dam Tribulation; Zeb Ward's brown
colt, by Asteroid, dam Fairy. Tom Bowling and
Medora alternated several times for first choice In
the pools, but at the close Medora had it 'at slight
odiis. Tom Howling caused a great deal of delay
before he could bo started, but when he cut loose
lie soon showed daylight to the others, and came
home an easy winner, making the quickest time
ever made by a two-year-old. Tom Howling carried
100 lbs. Zeb Ward's colt was a good second, Me101
a third.
The selling race had seven entries, comprising
Zeb Ward's l?av Ally Cynthlana, by Upperary, dam
;ty Imported Ilooton, to be sold for $750, carrying
io lbs.; Joseph Donahue's chestnut horse Sanford,
i?y Uncle Vic, dam Dolly Carter, $750, 111 lbs.; A.
i'aylor's bay filly Henrietta, by Jerome Edgar, dam
Minnie Minor, Jsoo. 73 lbp.; II. C. Dawson's bay
mare Albuera, by Jeff Davis, dam Ninette, $500, loi
lbs.; M. H. Sanford's bay gelding King Henry, by
Lexington, dam Tokay, $500, 101 lbs.: John F.
Chamberlain's bav gelding Impecunious, by Tlppcrary,
dam Lucy Fowler, $500, oi lbs.: and John
Boughram'h Mack gelding tierald, bv Mickey Free,
dam Kosctte, $500,101 lbs. Sanford was the first
favorite, Henrietta second choice, King Henry
third. Albuera, who sold in some pools last night
f"r $.! in a $ft00 pool, won the race. Sanford second,
King Henry third. This was a great victory for the
fielders, the favorites being thus far deleated.
In tlio I.ong Branch Stakes there were sixteen I
?ntrles and only four starters. These were Thouian
v. Doswell's bav filly Wlno Bap, bv Vandyke, dam j
?'iiiii. and his bav mare Midday, by Ec:ipse, dam i
Duett*: M. H. Bnnford'8 bay horse Preakness, l?y
.cxiiiKton, dam Hay Leaf, an<l Joseph Donahue's
hestnut colt Alroy, by Australian, dam Nellie Gray,
reaktiess was the favorite over the field. Doswell's
iro beiug second choice and Alroy the third. This
.as a very curiously run race Tor good horses like
'reakness and Alroy. They allowed Wine Sap to
ad several lengths tnrough the first mile on little i
letter than a hand gallop, and did not really go
nto fast work until they were rounding the
ipper turn on the last mile, when Preakness
md Mlddav set to work la earnest. Alroy
it her could not or was not allowed to
ollow the others to the end, but lagged behind
lUdlv, coming In last In a very mean contest, the
line being contemptible for horses of this calibre.
The fourth race, mile heats, best three in five, for
he Schell Cup, had but two starters. These were
f. P. McOroth's bay mare Susan Ann and John F.
Chamberlain's gray colt Hrcnnus. Susan Ann won
lie race In three straight heats very handily, In
nost ordinary tluie.

Tom Howling acted so perversely that above half
ni hour was spent before Ills handler conld ln<lucc
nim to turn his head tho right way. When they
;<>t him lu line, however, he flashed away from
those who were In Hie race with htm before they
liad run tlfty yards, and at the half-mile pole he led
three lengths, Ward's colt second, three lengths In
front of Medora, who was one length in advance of
Doloiosa, the latter being two lengths ahead of Mr.
Jerome's colt, tio.ng around the lower turn Tom

behind, and won the race by four lengths,

very doubtful if there I* one In nnv other land that

three, ft handsome buy. witti thrco white feet
and a blaze, and it Is not saving too much when wo
s'ato that he looks more like Ids Hire did at three

lapped on her Hanks. Wine Sap made running to
draw the others on, but they would not follow lier.
The trio behind were watching each other. They
made the pace stronger, however, after getting into
the homestretch, and as they passed under the

of Alroy, who was two lengths in advance of Preakness,
the latter being three lengths ahead of Midday.
Time, l:58M. Oolng around the upper turn
there was little change, but the pace was much accelerated.
At the quarter pole Wine Sap was live
lengths ahead of Alroy, who was four lengths in

the race set in In earliest. I'reakness moved up

were all now runuing their best. Wine

her mission, and then the others
became suddenly bunched together, and it
was didlcnlt to tell which had the best of It for a
moment or two. As the horses passed the threcciuarter
polo Preakness showed Ills nose In front of
Midday and Alroy fell back to fourth place. WhOO
the horses entered the homestretch the race was
reduced to a match between Preakness and Midday,
and this ended by Midday winning by a short head.

and ran nearly a mile before he was pulled up.

The Liberal Headquarter*.
The attendance ?t the liberal headquarters yesterday
was smaller than usual, the excitement
relative to North Carolina having seemingly in a
great measure died out. No despondency was
shown relative to the lat-e unfavorable reports,
little or no credence being given to their authenticity.
It is confidently expected that the later returns
which have yet t? come will fully sustain
Merrimon's majority and confirm the conservative
victory. The districts where large liberal
gains are expected have not yet
been heard from, owing to the meagre
means ot communication, and when this vote
is recorded there will no longer be any doubt of
the result. It Is asserted that the ageuts ot the
administration, In order to save the large amount
of money which has been bet upon a republican
vlotory, will endeavor to oount out Merrimon by
all means, fair and foul.
Tlio facilities possessed for doing this are great)
as the whole federal machinery of the administration
is at the bidding of the official motors.
The districts in which the United States Marshals
have worked hardest are those which
have given the republican gains, and it Is
said that if they managed to prevent a fair
show for the democrats at the polls they can easily
manipulate the returns and give them a different
complexion from what they really bear. It is said
that if anything like this is tried on the moral
effect it will have In the country will bo more disastrous
to the cause of Grant than the loss of hall
a dozen States. Among the visitors who called
were Byron F. Daniels, Washington, D. C.; P. P.
('rand, M. 0., Illinois; Frank Moulton, New York;
P. J. Koman, Secretary of State, Louisiana, and
others, but the list of names is very slight.
A German gentleman from Vicksburg, Miss.?Mr.
S. Schuleln?was among the callers. He says that
11 proper men would only take the stump in his
State the chances of carrying it for the liberals
would be greater than at present anticipated. The
negroes are, he thinks, very accessible. Sumner's
letter has had a marked effect in arousing them
from their servile adherence to Grant, and he
says that If the position Greeley occupies were
placed iuits true light, and that they had a reliable
assurance that they would be left in undisturbed
possession of their political rights, a largo number
of the negroes would vote for the united liberal and
democratic candidate. There have been no steps
taken yet to inaugurate the contest, but Mr. Schulciu
thinks they should be immediately taken.
" There is no falling off iu the quantity of correspondence
received, and the usual number of telei
grams which have kept pouring in for the last few
days are still kept up. The main tenor of the inquiries
relate to the North Carolina election; and,
ll the State has really gone against the liberals, the
I disappointment of those who have been rejoicing
I over a victory for the past few days will Indeed be
I great. Mr. F. P. Crand, the Member of Congress of
Illinois, thinks the prospects in that
State are good, and that there Is every
hope of carrying the State In the fall.
The contest In Maine, judging from the letters ami
despatches which are being dally received, promises
to be a hot one, both sides making great preparations
for the contest. The whole energies of the
liberals will bo put forth in the contest, particularly
in Augusta, the home of Speaker Maine. Senator
Sumner's reply to the Speaker Is considered a
crusher, and will doubtless have Its effect. The following
letter has been received from Saunders, the
colored man who lius been stumping North Carolina

The Grant Headquarter*.
A very dull and quiet day was spent at tlie
Grant headquarters yesterday, notwithstanding
that tlie news from North Carolina published in Hie
morning papers was more encouraging than the
despatches of previous days. The number of persons
who called was not larger, but they had an
increased appearance of confidence, and walked
with a more elastic step lhan they have done since
Thursday. They state that there is not the slightest
doubt but that tho oinci.il award will givo the
Stato to tho republicans, both in Governor
an>i a majority of Congressmen. The defeat
of Settle Is, however, admitted, and
it is accounted for by numerous causes,
which, stratigo to say, were not heard of
uuttl after the contest. Tho letter of William Lloyd
Garrison has given great encouragement to the re- !
publicans, and it is regarded by them as a conclu- I
sivo answer to the Sumner negro letter. The ar- i
ralgnraent of the Massachusetts Senator and tho
severe castigatton administered to him by his old
friend nnd associate, they assert, will have an effect !
all over the country, and If any negroes were
wavoring in their allegiance to Grant the argu!
monts 01 Garrison will hold them fast to flte good
I cause. Nothing was iwi>'l about Sumner's reply to
Ula'.ue, but this Is not Rtran<r<\ people seldom liklug
I to talk about N matter damaging to themselves.
It is anticipated that the meeting of veterans, to
I be held at Pltsburg on the ltfth, will havo a good
etToct In Pennsylvania, and will help to cement
I the republican ranks on (irant. tho unfor!
tunate divisions which have occurred between

A despatch was received at four o'clock P. to. ;
from North Carolina, slgtiod by Mr. Uarrlnger. It
is very voluminous, but tho following is tho sub>
stance of what it contains:?ne states that his im!
prcsslon Is that Merrlwon lias carried the State by
about one thousand majority. In the districts
where Indictments were held against parties for
Kukluxlsm and violation of the Internal Hcvcnuc
laws relating to whiskey and tobacco there have
been large republican gains, induced by the terrorism
and threats which were freely nsed. Ho
also states that large frauds have been perpetrated,
and that the Fallot boxes have been tamporcd with

majority of the legal vote actually cast. A victory
gained under such disreputable circumstances
would, he thinks, be worse for Grant than a defeat.
The Legislature is largely democratic, and five out
of the eight congressmen are elected sure.
Fr?m Connecticut a letter has been received
from the Chairman of the State Democratic Committee

The Feast of Tabernacles?Opening Day
of Sing Sing Camp Meeting?Good Attendance
and Bright Prospect*?Sermon*
by Revs. Mooxehoaa* and Applegate.
Sinq Sing, August 6,1872.
"The desert and the solitary place shall be glad
for them" must have been designed to cover this
camp meeting feature of American Methodism;
for certainly very few otherB ever make
the woods ring with prayer and praise. And
here they are again on this venerable camp ground,
inaugurating as they did to-day their annual meeting
for 1874. A more desirable place for camp
meeting, say the trustees, has not been discovered
since the pilgrims of the Orient encamped at Glim.
This grove, however, lacks the palm trees and the
wells of water which old Elim possessed, and
from which Israel drank and was grateful.
Thero is, however, an abundant supply of
clear and cool spring water gathered from a rivulet
wiitch runs at the base of a wooded grove upon
which the encampment is pitched, and raised to the
top of the hill and distributed in a large tank by
means of a steam force pump located below. The
grounds are clear and carefully laid out for the convenience
of all, and
toe orovb 19 unscrpas9ed fob 8iiade
and comfort. The grounds are not extensive
pnmivh to admit of Hnorulntion In houses or lots.
and very little Improvement can bo mailo In its
topography lrom one year to another. If the association
had had a little more territory they might
easily add a little lake to the attractions of the
ground lty enclosing or diverting a portion of the
rivulet, which after a rain shower Is swelled to
goodly proportions. They might also lay out a
little playground for the children, who with their
parents occupy cottages or tents hero for many
days before and after the camp meeting proper.
But as the design of these annual grove meetings
is the glory of God and the salvation of souls, as
tho association declare, they probably don't think
that scupplng and praying and boating aiul singing
would harmonize very well in so small and so
sacred a spot.
The only thing that mars the grandeur and serenity
of this spot is the steep and rugged ascent
by which It is reached. According to the testimony
of those who have climbed and are climbing both

hill. And as the noet sung of another roud we may,
with a little variation, say of this?

It Is just half an hour's walk from the steamboat
landing or the railroad depot to the camp around,
aud twenty minutes' ride. Jior a gotity or rneumatle
old lady or gentleman no better prescription
could oe given tlian a ride in one of the numerous
vehicles that ply between the depot and the
ground. It will be almost certain to shake the life or
the rheumatism out 01 them, and In cither case they
will be certainly cured. A boat ride of two hours
on the Hudson, or a ride of one hour and twenty
minutes by rail, will bring saints and sinners alike
to the jumping off place, and while the former
climb up Zion's hill, the latter very frequently slop
just a little below to partake of the hospitalities of
the State and to congratulate friends from whom
they may have been long parted.
Just now
As soon as yon step off the tralA or the boat a
hack driver accosts you with a poetic rigmarole, In
which his own genius and that of Charles Wesley
are so blended that you cannot well resist the
temptation to ride In his conveyance. The polltU
clans of the village, too, have painted tho democratic
candidate for the Presidency very much like a
Methodist parson and hung his likeness across the
Main street. As Methodists aro, generally speaking,
republicans, this is doubtless designed to catch
some who may be wavering and halting between
two opinions, and wlin, impressed with the Christian
meekness of the Philosopher's face as painted
on canvas, may decide to vote for "the great and
good I)r. Greeley."' Tho likeness Is In striking
contrast to one I saw suspended across
the street near the depot In Tarrytown.

at the White House next year or?elsewhere.
There are very few preachers on the ground yet.
but to-morrow a great many and a large number of
visitors are expected. Kev. 8.1). llrown, D. 1>., P. E.,
and Wm. Mc Alist cr have charge of the public services
at the stand, and yesterday Revs. W, H.
Ferris. !>.!>.; Ollphant, Brush, Holiis, Howdish
ami Morehouse, were present. The latter
Is pastor of a TllMgt church here, and as
Kev. McAllster remarked, Is one of the lew
men who are not afraid to preach to
small congregations. He did preach a very excellent
sermon?not very logical, indeed, but very
practical, and J oat siinicicntiy interspersed with
personal experiences and reminiscence* to make It
Interesting to all classes and all ages, liu text was
Matthew xxi. and part of twenty-eighth vetse?"(Jo
work to-day in my vineyard." Ills theme was Christian
work, and he discussed it under three aspects,
namely?the character and kind of work required of
us; the place and the time Of our labor. And then,
as a windtip, he spoke of the ctl'ect which this work
has upon the christian toller himself as well as
upon the hearts upon which he may operate, and
the abundant fruit which is ccrtaln'to follow from
faithful persevering labor In the Lord's vineyard.
Hcv. Mr. McAllster backed up the sermon
with a very brief but practical address,
and Dr. Brown offered a tew suggestions
to the campers touching promptness
at the public services, and the quiet of their children,
and the general decorum which should be
observed on the ground during such services.
There were about one hundred and tltt.v persons at
the meeting, ami there are about two hundred on
mip irDiunii. 'I he retrtilar services from day to da v.
as announced by tlie Presiding Elder, are preaching
tu tou A. M., half-past two and seven P. M.; prayer
meeting at eight A.M. and six P. M., ana alter
evening preaching In the tents. A children's meeting
will be held dally at a quarter-past one In the
afternoon, under the direction of sotne one to be
appointed hereafter. Kevs. C. H. Applegate and
Morehouse, of Sing Sinn; Kedford street and Forsyth
street M. E. churches, New York, and the
Swedish Bethel have prayer tents here, and between
this and Sunday half a dozen more will
probably be put up. Dr. Jirown congratulated
the trustees and tho campers on the goodly
numbers present at the opening service, and said
that last year there were so few persons on the
ground the tirst day they could not hold public service
until the everting, and on the second day there
was not as manv present as there are to-day.
Everybody seems quite pleased with the promise of
success thus given. The evening bo't and trains
brought about fifty men to the camp, so that
at the seven o'clock service there were about three
hundred persons present. Tho Kev. c. H. Apple*
gate, a local preacher, pave the people a very excellent
discourse In the evening on "the power of
personal effort trying to do good." Tt was based
on the story or tho Koman Centurion who besought
the l.ord .lesus to heal a Hick servant of his and the
marvel of the Saviour at the great faith manifested
by tho (ientile soldier. The discourse
was designed to supplement the sermon of tho
afternoon, and It did so admirably. At its close
Dr. Hrown gave a brief exhortation, after which
the people repaired to a couple or the prayer tents
and continued the services until ten o'clock P.M.,
when, at the sound of the bell, all such meetings
arc to cca?e at that hour, and the people are cxpcctod
to retire as soou as possible thereafter.
In tho culluary and domestic department of tho
encampment the competition will not be so sharp
as it was last year, when thero wero half a
dozen boarding tents on tho ground, and
all of them lost more or less money. There aro
but two such tents this year and a restaurant. The
price of board bv the day is $1 26: for five days or
more il a day, and by the meal fllty cents each for
break rust and tea and seventy-live cents for dinner.
Tho fare to day was between fair and middling, but
from to-morrow and onward the pioprletors promise
tit at c'.r.ss board.
Llko the lsracliush camp of old, this Methodist
cncampmcnt radiates to one centre, and iii.it is the
preacher's cottage. All tho tents and cottages on
tho ground form a succession of circles, the space
between the circles being numbered as streets?
First, Second, Third, Ao.?and they are divided into
cast and west bv Central avenue, which
Is an almost straight lino from tho entrance gate to
the preaching stand. Tho services to morrow evening
and thereafter will begin at twenty minutes
past, seven o'clock Instead of seven, to give an opportunity
to-the latest arrivals from the city to get
to tUc grounds in umv fyi that scrvivc. Mot q aoon.
