SARATOGA. Seeond Day of the August Meeting. THE FETE OF FASHION. THREE VERY FINE RACES. Tammany Wins the Steeple Chase, Frank Hampton the Mile and a Half Dash, and Mary Louise the Selling Race. Saratoga, August 10, 1872. To-day Witnessed me greui uuruie race ooiu brought out all the wealth, fashion and beauty congregated at this famous watering place. The races of Saturday closed with fitting splendor In the boll of the hotel orchestra at Congress nail, which was well attended, and of which Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbllt and Mrs. A. T. Stewart were the principal attractions to the sightseers who are "doing" the Springs. But even the latigue of the ball could not BtiU the game fever excited by the racing, ami when the church bells rang out In prolonged and solemn chorus on Sunday morning their notes fell upon ears not particularly In sympathy with the mournftri melody. In a watering place where the only life 1b a fashionable one and tlie only business is amusement church bells sound somehow out of place. The customs of the Roman banquets will never again be popular, aud when ono Is determined to be happy and enjoy oneself the less the old Latin caution, "memento moriis rung in the ear the better. KEBBCCAS AT THE WELL. At "five o'clock In the morning" a bevy of ladles, most of them married ones, and some of ttiem single of a "certain age," which it would be impolite to mention in their1 hearing, are gathered about Congress Spring. Thoy are without headdress of any kind, and wear loose travelling wrappers of brown linen, or some or the most irrepressible of the maiden ladies come clothed In the barbaric glory of highly colored and grotesquely figured Dolly Vardens." They arc incorrigible Saratogiaus who have regularly filled three separate arks every Spring and sailed out in search of health over the medicinal waters. I noticed one this morning who must have been a fair creature some years ago, before lato hours, cold tea and other female dissipations had chased the color from her cheeks, dulled the glitter of her eyes and eaten the moist roses of her lips. She was accompanied by a tall, sallow youth whom she called "Augustus, dear," and who had an incipient mustache and molassescandy hair. From a conversation it was impossible not to overhear I gathered that Augustus wag the lady'B brother, an honor that he shared with a weazen-faced elf near them who was watching the water boy, that he might throw pebbles In the spring wnen nis oacn wan vuiuou. Augusius, whose Angelina was evidently at Newport, was delivering himself of a tabular statement of the merits of that locality and the demerits of the Springs. ACOUSTTS' ARGUMENT. ' By Jove, I can't see what you And so fascinating In this dull place. Now, at the seaside we have our own cottage, and there Is bathing and yachting, and riding and driving and all that. And here you put up with all manner of inconvenience?pack yourself away in a little room, 10x12, and pretend that it's all to drink this dirty salt-water that tastes as If bad eggs had been boiled in it, and which, by the way, I don't believe you like a bit. If you were forced to drink it at any other place you would insist it was disgusting and you couldn't keep It on your stomach." At thla instant the elf (who, it seems, reloices in the name of Tom) turned up, and with one hand on his little abdomen and the other behind his back, cried out in a shrill, piping treble, "Oh! gracious, sis, the water's awful nasty. I can't bear to drink it, and every time I do, it?it makes me sick I" 80ENE ON THE COURSE AT DAWN. Thfe fog was still lying close to the earth In the lowlands, and marking in many places by its milky, opaque bulk the course of wandering brooks and straight ditches, dug for drainage or irrigation, when the stables opened and the horses to take part in the day's contests were led out to exercise. First of all came the studs from Kentucky stables, attended by their troops of little negroes. The horses were heavily blanketed and many of them hooded and with legs bandaged. The pickaninnies clustered about them, their dark faces full cf an anxious aollcltude, which probably long ago gave to some caretul observer the first Idea o( a "brown atiulv )? Thoan littla follnura vprA nf (rroflt.lv flivar. color, but of almost uniform size, Tew being more t.ha% Jour leet In helghth. They were the stable boys, uu<l grew up in intimacy with the colts for whom they cared. Soon with blankets removed and saddled, the horses were speeding over the turf at a rapid pace, some with noses close to the ground and tne rider pulling strong, others galloping with a clear, sweeping pace, which gave promise of honest work in tha day's trial. Up and down the quarter stretch and around the track the horses sped, till covered with foam they came back to be sponged, cleaned, rubbed and blanketed again. Then they were walked carefully over the course or out oil the green and down the country roads. TRRPAKINO FOR THK SPORT. In the meantime the belles and beaux of the hotels were not idle. They arose at an unusually early hour, and not a few of the former, no doubt, went through as. thorough a preparation lor the day's conquests fts did the horses. Waiting maids were teased and scolded, a thousand mysterious accessories to a fasnionabie female make-up were mislaid and discovered, and at last, alter endless brushing and "touching" and tucking and pinning mi-lady was pronounced en nval. The gentlemen descended to the barbers to have their hair dressed ana waiKeu over to me miuipiu room 10 uku a morning "bitters." They dropped in at the fancy goods store and oought bright blue and green ribbons with which to fasten on their badges, and then they looked in the glas<? ami said (solto voiv) "Ah! I'm rather taking, I Uattcr myself, this morning; ah I Ido, by .lore'." Members of the soortlng fraternity wore an anxious look. To them the breach Sunday had mode in the day's sport had been unwelcome, to Hav the least. Then, most of them had staked their money against the favorites In Saturday's rticcs, and the iavorltes had won in each race. These gentry also patronized the barber, but called at the sample room both before ami alter, which was the reason, doubtless, their cheeks looked as though the barber had put rouge Instead of powder on their faces. ? ON TUB ROAD the scene was more full of gayety and life than on the first day of the meeting. The (iumptown stago was conspicuous, as usual, and through some misunderstanding the driver had got into a spirited opposition to the "Ked Bird Express." The result was financially disastrous, for In the argument the (luniutown man halloaed himself so hoarse that he coulu only cry for passengers in a whisper. He stood on his seal shouting, "This way to the racecourseonly twenty-Are cents I" but to the crowd?his lace red and swollen, his arms gesticulating wildly, but not a word from hia lips sounding audible?he Bcemed like a mad clown in a pantomime. In the meantime the "Red Ulrd" man frew go jolly that lie winked at the free rides stolen 1 y the little boys of the village, who clung to the ' steps of his vehicle. Notwithstanding that it was Hunday only yesterday drivers oi the "four-horse teams" so far forgot themselves as to swear in the most shockinglv Tond voice at the hackmen who cut In ahead or them on the road. Horseraclng being fashionable at Saratoga all the ton are out, even the "old Knickerbockers'' whose ancestors put off from the ark oi these people when she ran into i Hpuyten Duyvll creek to cast nets for Holland herring. Among the most famous "turn outs'' Is that of Colonel C. E. Dele van, who is the owner ofoneot the j three four-in-hands seen ai Saratoga. The horses are : ail large black, stylish animals, and so are the coach- 1 man and footman, who are dressed in full livery. The Colonel la dressed in velvet and cordurov. Next in order, and at every opening trvlng to get ! first, Is Colonel W. s. Wright, also of New York. ! He Is the owner of another four-in-hand all bays driven to a stylish drag. Mi*. John Whfte, whose I carriage contains a number oi lady friends from the i city and is drawn by a line team, comes next. Mr. I Jameff Breslin, of the Grand Union, drives a fast span of bright bays, which And little trouble iu passing nearly everything upon the road. Next comes a handsome fellow, young Harry Houthgate, Junior proprietor of Congress Hall, who drives the fastest span of ponies (chestnuts) in Saratoga. Senator O'Urlen bowls behind. He drives his own team and is accompanied by his family. Cornelius Vantierbllt and his young wife are the most unassuming couple on the road. The Commodore sits quietly In Ills plain barouche, drawn by a pair of large slow bay horses and driven by a mall colored coachman. The Commodore is dressed in his usual white stilt nnd looks cool and comfortable. He smokes his cigar quietly and has left his cravat at home. Mr. and Mrs. Josepn Hat ker and Mr. Isoac Sherwood are on the road, the latter with his family, in a very modest tstaMisiimcQt. Yovqg Isaac Sherwood is also ku a 4 NBW YOl " ?' carriage with his pretty bride. Larry O'Brien, be- I dad, cornea next, in a nobby''velvet coat, white D^iita and vest and diamond shirt front behind a liut trotter. Mr. C. P. Morgan, of Mew York, who i occupies a cottage here, and Mr. Sledge, of the Clarendon, alao a cottager, are out. and behind these come a long cortege. Mr. William White, Mr. George Miller, of the insurance DeBartment; John Mornsey, Jr.; Mr. A. Garfield, lr. J. C. Smith, Mr. Charlie Clark, of Troy; Mr. 1 Simon, Dr. Vassar, Mr. . Morales, Mr. De Rlvaa, 1 Senator Benedict and Chancellor Williamson are among the train. THB GRAND 3TAND, < from one end to *he other, is crowded even to dearth of standing room, its really magnificent i distance Is gorgeous with color, over five thousand i people being seated there. The day Is Intensely 1 hot, the sun shining fiercely down, and there is a sea of waving fans and handkerchiefs. The costunfes of the ladies are to-day really elegant and lend a gorgeous air to the scene. Augustus, whom we met this morning, Is there?full of brotherly attention?the pink of propriety. Yonder sits a well-known Fifth avenue belle, attired In a magnificent brown silk, elegantly and profusely trimmed. The value of her jewelry is estimated at a email fortune, and the light of her Jet black eye will vie with the Hashing or her brilliant diamonds. In her delicatelv gloved nand she holds a gold pencil and a little book. "Come, sir," she says, presenting her book and parcel to a young gentleman friend who has just doffed his hat, "come, sir, put down your bet. Take your choice." The victim smiles, records her name, and, gentlemanlike, chooses the poorest horse, the one he Is certain will lose. In a moment more along comes another victim and her book and pencil are again presented with the most charming naiwt>!. She has made at least a dozen beta, but she will win every one of them, for the gentlemen have all gallantly taken the poorest horses and left her the favorites. IT (Q VL'U V Vl.'f TV?

Just behind her la the swell?one of those chaps that play a prominent part in the great Saratoga larce. lie is gorgeously gottm up. Ue chats with a sweet lisp aud says "awe, werry'' for "ah I very," and assures our belle she looks "positively charmiug." The sensible old people look on the swell with an eye of pity and suspicion, aiid want to know what business "it" has here. 490 IN THE SHADE. In front of the stand is Judge Connolly, with an umbrella which scarcely conceals his features. One ol the colored jockeys who has been lound ft pound over weight?he's a " phat phellow "?is taking a walk around the " btg Judge " to get his tlesh dowu. Each time, as he conies in sight on the homestretch, the perspiratloa is seen running from him in torrents that would prove the fortune of an ink manufacturer. On the shady side ol the great Jurist sit a crowd of people who are timing the pedestrian, and upon whom the Judge looks blandly ana maKnlticently down. Boon the bucle calls a "mount," the jockey is hastily weighed and louud an ounce under the ^illations, too crowd throw In pennies enough to make up the deficiency, and all id ready for the start. THE RACING. Tbe track was In capital condition, and the weather fine for fast time. Three races were on the card, the first a steeple chase, with six starters; the second a mile and a half daBh, with 100 poands up, with two runners, and tbe third a dash of a mile and three-quarters, with weight off, it being a selling race, and allowance was made for low prices. Seven started, and the race was a capital one. It was won by John O'Donnell's gray Ally Mary Louise, who had eighty-nine pounds on her back. Echo was a good second, Henry a poor third. The racing gave general satisfaction. The mile and a hair dash rather surprised the people, when Frank Hampton beat Tubman, who was the favorite at four and five to one. In the first, race there were six starters, com. prising J. H. Tully's bay gelding Vesuvius, by Vandyke, dam Lizzie Berry, 6 years old, with 144 lbs. up; Coffin and Lawrence's bay horse Lothiel, by Ronnie Scotland, dam Bonnet, 4 years old, 147 lbs.; James Thompson's brown mare Lobelia, by Bonnie Scot'and, dam Capltola, aged, 148 lbs.; Jo Donahue's chcstnut gelding Tammany, by Lexington, dam Lis Mardis, s years old, 147 lbs.; Jo Donahue's brown horse Blind Tom, by Star Davis, dam Margravine, aged, 162 lbs.; John 9'Donnell's bay colt by Asteroid, dam Lavender, 4 years old, 132 lbs. Lochlcl was a great favorite in the pool sales. He came in first at the finish, bat for making a mistake while running the race was given to Tammany. O'Donnell's colt stumbled at the water jump and threw his rider, and then ran away. Tho race was a good one throughout and was much admired by the spectators, who applauded vociferously as the horses passed over the water in front of the stand. The second race had only two starters. These were Bacon & Holland's brown horse Frank Hampton, by Imported AvBgartn, dam by Charley Ball, five years old, and D. McDaniel & Uo.'h bay colt Tubman, by War Dance, dam Lass of Sidney, each to carry one hundred pounds. Tubman was the favorite at five to one in the pool sales. Frank Hampton won the race by twenty length*. Tubman quitting badly two hundred yards from home, after leading nearly all the way. He had tbr inside position, and this gave him a slight advantage on the turns. The time of the race was not good for such fast horses with one hundred ponuds up, and much better was antfclpated. The. backers of Tubman fell heavily and seemed very much chagrined at the manner that Tubman acted when called on at the finish. Frank Hampton, however, is a hard horse to beat at a mile ana a half, particularly with light weights up. The third race had seven starters, comprising J. H. Harbeck, Jr.'s chestnut gelding Cadence, by Censor, dam Rachel Dawson, four years old, to be sold for $l,ooo, carrying 93 lbs.; James McCormack's bay gelding King Henry, by Lexington, dam Tokay, six years old, $000, 69 lbs.; T. w. Doswell's bay mare Wine Sap, by Vandyke, dam Nina, four years old, $l.ooo, 03 lbs.; R. Shea's brown horse Astronomer, by Asteroid, dam Miss Carter, four years old, $hoo, 99 lbs.: Joseph Donahue's chestnut horse Sanford, by Uncle Vic, dam Dolly Carter, four jears old, $000, 102 lbs.; D. Buckly's chestnut mare Echo, by Australian, dam Kate Hayes, five years old, $floo, 95 lbs., and John O'Donnell's gnuy mare Mary Louise, by Lightning, dam by Sovereign, four years old, $600, 89 lbs. Mary Louise had the call In the uciuiik, toucucc uciun vuc re nun cuuicc, mc race was a good one for a mile and a quarter, but after that Echo and Mary Louise had the affair to settle between themselves. The following are the details of the racing as it came off:? First Race.

The Dnke of Saxe, sou-ln-law of Ills Imperial Majesty Dom Pedro, Emperor or Brazil, arrived In the port of New York last evening on board the United States and Brazil Mail Steamship Company's steamer North America from Kio Janeiro. The vessel, in accordance with the usual Quarantine regulations, was detained at the Lower Quarantine boarding station, off the West Uank, and her passengers, including the illustrious German Duke,will probably reach the city early this morning. The I Duke will remain at the Hrevoort House until the | arrival of his brother, Prince Philippe, who will accompany him through this country. The Oalu of Saxe tn Brazil. Rio Janeiro, lira/.II. July i>5, 1873. In accordance with a long cherished plan, matured since his arrival here with the Emperor in Marcn msi, me iiuk? oi r*axe, son-in-iuw 10 uoni < Pedro II., Kmperor of Hra7.il, takes parage to-mor- I row morning on board the American and Brazil steamship North America, Captuln George It. Slocum, for a visit to the United States. The Duke ol Saxe married the Princess Leopoldina, second and youugest daughter of Dom Pedro 11., early in 186?. He was residing here during the Paraguayan war, and as some opposition was made at Ills Intention to take an active part In the campaign, lie felt a degree of offence, and with his young wile wont to Germany, where he hus resided since. In the early part of the year 1871 his wile died in Vienna, leaving Issue three sons, the eldest of wliom, Dom Pedro, now about live years of age, is heir to the Brazilian throne in the event oi the death without issue of Isabella, Princess Imperial, wife of the Count D'Ku, who has no children up to the present time. Wlion the Emperor returned in March laHt from hlH European trip the I)ukc of Kaxe accompanied him to Hiazil, bringing his little children also, who remain here in charge of their Imperial grandfather. The Duke is a fine looking man physically, nearly six feet in height, with a pleasant Herman face, and is quick and vigorous in ail his movements. He has been passing his time here without the least ostentation, and has indulged largely in active exercise, of which he is very lond. Not many mornings ago I saw him very early, riding ulong ihe Cattete, from Hotafogo, astride of a fine mule, his pants tucked in his hoots, wearing a monkey jacket and slouched hat, and appearing as if he was returning from his morning exercise, which undoubtedly was the case. The programme of his tour will be as follows:? He will arrive in New York on the 10th of August possibly, and, passing a few .days in the East and visiting some of the watering places, will make un autumn trip to and through the West, and hopes to, and no doubt will, make arrangements for a season of butTaio hunting. He will visit California, and thence goes to Australia, Japan, China, India and thencc through Egypt to Europe. Bkctch of the Royal Visitor. The arrival of the Duke of Saxe, son-in-law of the Emperor of Brazil, in this city will afford great satisfaction to the American people. The Duke is known to entertain the most enlightened views, is a close student and a liberal patron of the arts and sciences, like nearly all the members of his ramily. The Duke is quite a young man, a widower and the fattier of four children. The latter arc the only male descendants ofDom Pedro, and therefore the eldest son of the Duke, if the Princess Imperial? the Countess d'Eu, the eldest daughter of the Emperor, who acted as regent during his and the Em press' absence on a lengthened European tour? continue -tsMMless, Is heir presumptive to the throne. The object or the visit of the Duke, we are happy to learn, is to study our institutions and observe their workings. Government officers, the representatives of the industrial, financial, scientific and mercantile interests, will, we do nftt question, be pleased to aid him in Ida inquiries. The Duke will meet on every side the attentive consideration and proper respect due to a cultivated gentleman and scholar, and one bound, too, In the ordinary course of events, to exercise hereafter an important influence on the destinies of one of the finest and most extensive countries'on the American Continent. German by birth, and monarchical also by birth and by education, tie is by alliance, interests and sympathies American. And here may be quoted the words of Mr. James Watson Webb, formerly Minister to Rio Janeiro, in reference to Brazil, even before the great measure of the abolition of slavery In the Empire had been carried out"Brazil in a constitutional inonarcny; but her constitution, her Legislature, her judiciary and all her commercial laws and regulations are based upon and copied from us. Make her Executive elective Instead of hereditary and her constitution Is our own in spirit if not in letter, and in some features even preferable." The Duke of Haxe has been identified with all the measures of reform that have taken place within late years in his father-in-law's dominions, and in the naval service of his country has earned deserved distinction. THE HOUSE OP RAXK-COBrR<!. The house of Saxe-Cobnrg, of which Duke de Saxe is a scion, is descended from Duke Ernest, groat grandson of John Frederick the Magnanimous, who, in 1647, was deprived by the Emperor Charles V. of his electoral dignity and territory, received as a compensation several estates, among which is the Duchy of Gotha, which maintained a separate Independence until it was recentlv Incorporated into the German Empire. Ernest, his son, who succeeded to Gotha and the main part of the | territory "was, to all appearance," says Carlylc, "an excellent, prudent and really pious Governor. He had been a soldier in his youth, was a patron of learning, among other good things, and set Seckondorf on compiling a history of the Reffe-matlon." Ernest died In 1675, leaving seven sons, who at first lived together at Gotha, and governed conjointly for five years, but at length made a partition of the country. Frederick, the oldest, obtained Gotha, bnt his line became extinct in 18.14. The other six brothers founded the houses of Coburg-Melnlngen. Romheld, Elsenberg, Hildburghausen and gaulfleld, most of Which soon died ont. THE KKHINING IH'KE. Passing over the histories of the succeeding scions of the family, we come to Ernest Anton Charles, the filth Duke, born in 1784 and who died in 1844. The Duchy of Haxe-Coburg-Gotha fell to him in 1824 on the extinction of the original line. He was distinguished, In common with all tncnilKsrs of the family, by devotion to the arts ami sclencs, the liberal study of politics and history, dignified but courteous and kindly manners ami a warm de sire to promote the wcliare of his subjects. He left I two sons, the younger of wlioiu, Albert, became- 1 the huband of gut-en Victoria, as stated before, ami the elder, Ernest, Is now the rclgulng prince I over Saxe-Conurg-Gotha. The latter Is highly ac- ' compllshed In music as well an In science and ; literature. With extreme good sense he estab- i llslied a constitutional government In his territory, : and perhaps the best testimony as to his wisdom and justice Is that the revolutionary storm of 1848 | passed over without commotion In his domain. He Is childless. The Duke of Edinburgh, second son of gueen Victoria, is heir to Duke Ernest, but he has renounced Ills claims In favor of the next of kin. i TIIK Dl'KE OF 8AXK. Louis Anguste Mane Oudes, Duke of Saxe, ranks ; among the most distinguished roval visitors who have ever come to this country. He belongs to the House OfSaxe-Ooburg-Gotba, which is closely allied by marriage to the reigning families of Great Britain, j Portugal, Austria and Belgium. He Is also con nected with the Orleans and Bonaparte houses and with many of the German royal families, Including that of the Emperor of Germanv. The Klrst Napo- I leon on one occasion remarked, with reference td the singular good fortune which has befallen this family In most alliances, "If a crown at any time falls Into the street one of my Coburg cousins Is sure to pick It up." The members of the House of Saxe-Cor>urg-Gotha from the earliest times nave > always been distinguished for their spirit and lib- ' era) character, as well as for their mental and physi- 1 cal gifts. BIRTH AND PARBNTAr.F. Our present royal visitor was born August 9, 1846, and has therefore entered upon his twentyeighth year. Of the two branches of the 8axeCoburg-Gotha family?Protestant and Catholic? he belongs to the latter. His father was Auguste Louis Victor. Duke de saxe. a'major general in the Austrian service, and cousin of Prince Aib?rt, the ffctber of the Prince of W ales, and his mother, Maria Clementine, daughter of Louis Philippe, King of the French. Ills education received particular attention, and it was tor many years considered that he might be called to some vacant throne Europe, The geutlewao, mi substftuMaUj i SHEET. stated before, is known to be an accomplished scholar, most amiable in manners, and has served with distinction in the ltra/.illan navy, iu which he holds the rank of Admiral. The I>uke of Saxe, it will be seen, is a grandson of Kins; Louis Philippe, who spent many years in the United States, and also a cousin of the Prince of Wales. He Is, besides, related to the House of Honaparte, through marriage of a member of his family with a daughter of Kugcne lleauharuals, son of the Empress Josephine. MARRIACK AVI) CHILMltN. The Emperor of Ilra/.ll had two daughters?the Princesses Imperial Isabella and Leopoldina. The Count d'Eu, son of the Due de Nemours and grandson of Louis Philippe, in the latter respect like the Duke de Saxe, married the former in 1S84. and having had a military education, showed a docided taste For a military life, ami h?s been for years a marshal of Brazil. The Duke de Snxe married the Princess Leopoldina, who was born July 13,1S47, on the 15th December, 1864, and four sons have been the issue of the union. Their names are:?Pedro Augu<>te Louis Marie, born March 9,1800; A agnate Leopold Philippe, born Decernner a, 1S67; Joseph Frederick Francis, born May 2,1809, and Louts Gaston Clement, born Septfembsr 17, 1870. The Princess Leopoldina died in Vienna February 7. 1871. leaving the Duke of Saxe a widower, which ho still remains. The Emperor of Rrazil has no male issue, and therefore the young Duke of Saxe great grandson of Louis Philippe and cousin of the children of the Prince or Wales, is now the heir apparent to the throne. During the progress of the Paraguayan war referred I to below, and In which the Duke or Saxe par- j tlclpated. the prqspect was atone time entertained or erecting a new kingdom In South Anurlca. There were many dynastic interests to be considered, the most important of which was the selection ??r a monarch who would be looked upon with favor by the reigning houses in Europe. The Duke of Saxe was regarded as the most eligible, and, it the project had been carried out. h>- would have been placen over a new kingdom, made up of parts | or Ilra/.ll. Paraguay and the Argentine Hepublic. i The family connections of our roval visitor may be j further shown by stating that one of -the sisters of , the Emtteror of Brazil married the Prince de Joinvillu arid the other the Count de Aqulla, sou of ! Francis L, King of the Two Sicilies. TUP I'ilUCI'tVlV U'iR When the Duke of Saxe left Brazil the relations | of the Kmpirc with its former allies in the war i against Paraguay seemed to he on the eve of u nip- i ture, ami the latest advices indicated that prepara- I tions for hostilities were in progress on both sides, j The war that opened in lKtKS continued over two years, and was remarkable for the ferocity with which it was carried on on both sides. The avowed object of the allies was to drive Lopez from power, and restore, it was aliened, the people of Paraguay to liberty, lie taught with determination, and brought into operation the entire physical power of i the Republic?even including women?niralust tin- | inense odds. The quarrel was ilrnt with Hra/.il. I Lopez was ambitious to become an imperial ruler ! and prove himself a power equal to the Emperor, l)om Pedro; and there is authority for saying that j the latter, dm lug the progress of hostilities, de- 1 dared that If his people were anxious lor peace at any sacrifice the duty of assenting to sueh a peace would devolve on his daughter. In other words, ho would abdicate before Higning a treaty of peace with Lopez. tub AIXHB. Paraguay, it may be worth mentioning, was as readv as Kra/il to cnimire in war. I .one/. bad as pircd to the hand of the Princess Leopolduut, Ixtt all advances in that direction wore curtly rejected by Doin Pedro. I.opcz, Inileed, could offer little In tue way of antecedents to enHiirc the happiness of the young lady. Hrazil sought lor alliances. There was a revolution In progress in Uruguay under Plores, and It being successful the latter came into the views of Hrazil and declared war against Lopez. Paraguay, situated in the heart of South America, Is wrapped arouud by the Immmenss territory of Hrazil and the Argentine Republic. Hollvia to the west has a strip of swicoast on the Pacific and its Interests are more with Chile and Peru. They are Spanish and republican, while Ilrazl Is imperial and Portuguese. Lopez had asked per- | mission from the Argentine Republic to march a j body of troops across a strip of territory called the Mlssiones. This could not be granted without involving the country in war with Hrazil. The result was that liopcz declared war against the Argentine Republic, on the ground that President Mitre had been in connivance with Hrazil; and against Uruguay, on the ground that Plores had fought against the Independence ot Uruguay and had allowed the publication of satires and libels concern- ! ing Lopez. Plores was assassinated in the streets ol Montevideo, after abdicating about the closc of the war; and soon alter Lopez being totally defeated by the Hrazilians, and closely pnrsued, was put to death by the lance, in the hands of an allied soldier. As an evidence of the imperial aspirations of Lopez, it is recorded that 81 It KOWAK1) THORNTON, wha had spent twenty years In South American countries, was appointed English Minister to Paraguay and was well acquainted with the habits and customs or the rulers and people, made the usual application to the Minister or Foreign Affairs. The time of presentation of credentials was apiioiuted and carriages sent by l/opez to convey Mr. Thornton to the palace at Ascension. The Secretary ot Legation desired to enter the vehicle with his Chief, but there were peremptory orders that only the Minister should ride to the palace, and Lopez took particular pains to state that he felt gratified that t^ueen Victoria took such special Interest in his health and welfare. THE BltAZIMAN NAVY. The Brazilian naval force took an active part during the progress of the war with Paraguay. The Duke of Sax Is an admiral in the Kmperor's service and held an Important position during the progress of hostilities. He distinguished himself on several occasions under Are. The present naval force of the country consists of fifteen iron-clads an I monitors and about sixty other vessels, principally propelled by steam, one of the Iron-dads is called after the name of our present distinguished visitor, and was badly damaged during an encounter with a Paraguayan fort, barely escaping being sunk. The passage of Humaita, a strongly fortified position, Is claimed by the Hrazihans to have been a naval feat equal to Trafalgar or Mobile, and to have est ablished the reputation of the lron-clads of the Umpire as being equal to the best In the world. The Paraguayan fleet was by no means insignificant. On more than one occasion the vessels composing it dashed among their enemies and attempted to capture them by boarding. The result on all these occasions was victory ror the allies, and, according to the reports, the l>nke of Saxe, though young, was prominent during the hottest portions of tue CVUUSBU. TREATY OP COI.E.IIPK. The allien?Rrazil. Argentine Hepubllc and Uruguay?were entirely successful. Paraguay was not alone almost depopulated, but placed entirely at the mercy of the Powers named. Whatever were the crimcs ol Lopez, the country over which he had supreme sway was rcduced to the lowest con ditlon of misery and misfortune. And, to understand the present condition of the relations between the Empire and Its former allies and the causes that threaten war between them, the following statement Will be read with Interest:? Rrazil, when l.opez w?s killed, made a special treaty with Paraguay, commonly called the "Colejlpe" treaty. It was an agreement in which Uruguay and the Argentine Republic had no part, and was entered into witnont consulting with them, Rrazil was by it guaranteed the power of establishing a protectorate and maintaining in the Republic a certain number of troops even after the expiration of the treaty of the peace. The treaty of alliance or peace, article 8, provides that Paraguay cannot be annexed by any of the allies nor ask for their protection. The independence and territorial Integrity of Paraguay was guaranteed by all the allies for nvo years. Under these circumstances the Argentine Republic has deemed it obligatory on hcrsolf to issue a protest against the special treaty made by Rrazil with Paraguay. It is said that the absorbing policy developed by Rrazil has very much alarmed the neighboring republics of Uruguay ana the Argentic Republic, and, fearing the late of Paraguay, they require guarantees from the Empire, which it is hardly possible will be granted. The Rrazlllan array or occupation Is to remain In Paraguay beyond the term of years specified In the treaty, and becomes practically annexed to the Empire. The two objecting Powers have each seacoasts and seaports, but their naval strength is insignificant, while that of Rrazil Is large and well organized. The best evidence that some arrangement will tic reached to avert war is the arrival of Admiral the Duke or Sa.xo In oar midst. The adjoining republics of Rolivla, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela urc Inaccessible to attack by sea from Rrazll, and, however much they may be antagonistic to mo narchlcal or imperial institutions to which they are opposed, their interests impose upon them a peaceful policy i nOM rEDRO. This brief view of the last war of Rrazll, and of | the present critical relations of the Kmplre with Its neighbors, In reference to which the telegraph has given us iuformatlon from time to time, possesses Interest at this time. Our commercial Intercourse with the Kinplre improves every d.iy, and steiyn communication with Klo Janeiro has been reccWly Increased. Dom I'edro is deservedly regarded as one of the most enlightened of reigning monarchs, and is devoted to the 1 development of the resources of the country over ! which he rules and the elevation of his people. The I visit of the Duke of Sa.ic will, no doubt, tend to i cement closer the friendly sentiments tbat exl?t ! between the great Kmplre of the South and the great Republic of the North. Onr royal visitor may rest ussnred of receiving a cordial welcome and the pultable attentions due his high station and Influential position, our naval authorities will not be behind hand in extending the civilities and honors to which the Admiral is entitled. A WILD STEER OH THE RAMPAGE, Last night a wild steer broke loose from the slaughter pen at the corner of Forty-seventh street and Third avenne. While proceeding through Forty-tlfth | street, between First and Second avenues, it came | in contact with Joseph Kiernan, aged seventy-two, of 7Wt First avenue, knocking him down on the pavement. The Injured man was rescued by his friends and taken home. His injuries fortuuately were slight. AOCIDEHTALLY DROWHED.

The Yantic'a Message to the Imaum of Muscat. WARiiixnrov, Auguat 19; 1872. To-day Rear Admiral case, Acting Secretary ol the Navy, signed the Hailing orders of the United States ship Yantlc, now at Norfolk and destined for the East Indian squadron via Su"7., to execute en route one of the most important, missions that could be conilded to our navy?the tlrst practical step toward the Strn'RBflSION OF TF1E SLAVE TRADE on the East Coast of Africa. The recent appalling revelations made la the letters of Stanley and the despatcnes of Livingstone have aroused the British government to a sense of their duty. A short tlmo ago Sir Edward Thornton, the Iirltish Minister, represented to the State Department that the PKIVIMtORH RE8KKVKD BY THE IMAt'M OF Ml'HCAT .nh n.nat Krifnin for the aunnp'ssion of the slave trade, allowing, however, his subject!* to continue to Import slaves to he employed an house servants, have tieen bo grossly abused that the Kritlsh fitovernment desired to put an end to so much of the treaty as reserved the right to transport domestic slaves by sea within c rtain limits of their own territory. It was represented that this portion of the treaty was only a cover which was used for keeping up the traffic on the eastern coast of Africa and the sooner It was abrogated the better It would be lor the interest* of civilization. The British Minister was informed tliat our government would glarify co-operate in any manner to carry out snch a laudable undertaking, and Mr. Thornton was also Informed that the commander of the first manof-war of the United State* wulcti should visit Zanzibar or Muscat would bo ordered to intimate to the .Sovereign of that country that the United States would bo glad to see that tiie treaty with England be cancelled, ns there was reuson to believe the lustrumcut was VSF.n AS A Ct.OAK AND SHIELD to continue the slave trade generally In Its most onenslve form and with its usual results of distress to the individuals Kidnapped and to the region wherein they were obtained. These arc substantially the Instructions to Commander Byron Wilson, of the Yantic, and the communication of which to the Imaum of Muscat is to l>e regarded by tho British government, as abrogating so much of the treaty as is above referred to. TUB INSPECTION OF T(IB YANTIC will take place on Wednesday, and a day or two thereafter she will set sail for Muscat. It was thought best to communicate directly with the Imaum, and In doiug this Commander Wiiaon will not only be fortified with the authority of our government and the approval of tho British Government, but will present to tho Imanm the sentiment of the civilized world on tho course pursued by Ills subjects in perpetuatlug the slave trade. The Yantic will, eii route for tho Kast India squadron, stop at Bombay, Point de Uaile, Singapore and Manila. In conversation this evening with a naval official be said it was more than likely the British government, spurred by the recent revelations of .Stanley and Livingstone, would nor wait for the arrival of the Yantic at Muscat, but would move at once to abrogate the treaty. In the event, thereiore, that the commander of the Yantic should And the treaty abrogated he Is to congratulate the Imanm in the name of this government for liuvluz pursued such an enlightened course. It is hardly probable, however, that Great Britain would do no without first Informing us of the fact. Nothing lias been received at the State department changing the previous request.

PorniiKRKrsie, August 10,1872. In the jail in this city is a young girl named Matty Dowe, aged about twenty-three, who stands indicted for murder In the first degree. She was last Winter In the employ ot a man In Flshkill named Ed Lane, l>y whom she became pregnant, and when chilubtrth was expectcd she was sent from the house to the abode of a colored woman some distance off. She had no sooner entered the black woman's apartment than she was attacked with pains, and very quickly, without the aid or a physician, gave birth to a child. Deserted by the man who should have stood by her, and notwithstanding her precarious condition, she left the house the next day with the new-born child In her arms, and was afterwards seen without it. Shortly after that trie body of the child was found in a picce of woods, and It looked as though it had been attacked by some animal. Matty Howe was arrested for killing her offspring and indicted as above stated, and her trial is to come off in the Supreme Court In October next. Her cell la on the upper corridor, on the west sldo. Directly under It on the next corridor below is the cell of Engeno Schmltland, a goodlooking German, who has been indicted for grand larceny In stealing a number of watches and a quantity of Jewelry In Ffshklll last spring. He In a good-natured sort of fellow, and has been allowed the freedom of the outer corridors. One of these corridors lea<lfl to Matty Howe's cell, and Engeno soon became acquainted with Matty by seeing her and TAI.K1KO TO FIEK THBOt'OH THE BARS which separated them. The at llrst casual acquaintance, under adverse circumstances, ripened into affection and from that time forth through tho long hours of tho day, until the time arrived for each prisoner to Do locked up for th<? night tlw loving Eugene could be seen sitting Dy the bars of Mattle's cell, the two exchanging vows of eternal constancy. One day Eugene addressed a letter to his father, in the old Country, saying he had got Into ? little difficulty and sadly needed fftoo to ht lp him. His father, who Is reported to be rich, in a few weeks after sent him f40o In gold. Then the lovers decided to get mar rled. Eugene, through the consent or tne Sheriff, sent for a first class tnllor to come to the Jail and measure him for a suit of clothes, and In due time the suit was ilnlshed. lie then Rent to Van Kurcn llro.'s Jewelry store and had samples of jewelry ' sent to his cell, from which he selected a complete set for Matty, including a gold chain and locket, and presented them to her. tie also gave her a lancy lace collar and fancy necktie. Having thus, as he thought, prepared for the wedding, the next thing was to get a minister to perform the marriage ceremony. Last Saturday ho requested Jailer Vauderpool to go after a Methodist domiule. The Jailer, knowing that such a thing would not t?e allowed, replied that ho was too bnsy to attend to the matter then, when Kugen? requested the attendance of Mr. Boose, thw cigar dealer, who came to the Jail. To him Eugrno opened his heart, and Mr. Hoosa endeavored to get a German minister to officiate, but he declined on the ground that such n marriage would be unlawful. Then Justice Haker was appealed to. That offlclal 9aid he worm marry tiiem I If the Sheriff would consent, but the latter peremp-i torlly declined. This Intelligence whs conveyed to , the determined lovers, who received It with sadness. The Sheriff, however, in order to appease them, s?nt them word they could oe married In open court by the presiding Judge. They, however, recelveil that news with distrust, and are mourning over the fact that next week Kugene is to be tried and will, without doubt, be sent down the rtver. leaving Matty to remain here till October for her trial. It is the first case of love In Jail that ever occurred in this county. THE MISSISSIPPI MASSACRE. Arrival of CaptAtB Pott aad Wife, of til# Helen Brook*, at Memphis.
