RACING IN ENGLAND.
THE EPSOM SPRING MEETING. The City and Suburban Handicap. *HE GREAT METROPOLITAN STAKES. Double Victory of Morn ington. "HEAVY BETTING OPEBATIONS, London, April 24, 1878. Of the two meetings held annually at Epaum the Spring cannot bear comparison with the Summer In point of popularity, and the attendance Is noth ing in size like that of the Derby day, or In ?elegance like that of the Oaks. The City and Suburban, however, is one of the most Important handicaps of the season, and leads to heavy and protracted speculation, while the great Metro politan Stakes is as pretty a race as can be wit nessed anywhere In England, and has a special Interest for the licensed victuallers of London, who always tnrn out to patronize it in great numbers. The meeting extends over two dayB, Tuesday and Wednesday, the feature of the former being the City and Suburban, as that of the latter is the great Metropolitan. The attendance of the general public on both days was very much greater than usual, and of the regular supporters or the sport and of the professional turfmen there was a full representation; but the picture presented by the grand stand and "the hill" was sadly deficient In the brightness of coloring imparted by ladles, and of elegant equipages there were hardly any; in fact the "turnout" of vehicles or any sort was extremely scanty. There Is no "road" con nected with the Spring, as there is with the Sum mer meeting, and people almost invariably travel down by rail* there being plenty and good accom modation of that kind. The weather was far Irom pleasant, the atmosphere Welng very chill, the sky lowering throughout and the wind high. On Wednesday, too, we had two showers of snow, a circumstance which we have not seen in connec tion with Epsom?at race times?since the mem orable day on which Hermit won the Derby. There was, too, plenty or dust, which blow in clouds ovor the downs, to such an extent that It was fre quently only with difficulty that the horses could be made out. The , CITY AND SUBURBAN Is run over the greater portion ol' the Derby course, but the distance ib rather shorter than that or the more Important race. On this occasion there were twenty-live starters, and the ravorlte was round in Cremorne, the wluner ol the Derby last year, who bad had a line preparation and looked In excel lent condition. Next to him In the betting was Woirhall, an animal or whom little was known; but who came up from Fyfleld?where one or the Derby f&vorlteB, Gang Forward, is" trained?with a great reputation, which, as will be seen, was rar iron borne out by the result. Playfalr won the Cam bridgeshire last year, and Shelmartln, who was quoted at the same price, ran only once, and then ' Indifferently, last season, but was stated to nave been highly tried at home. Bertram, who was one of the finest looking horses of the whole lot, fin ished fourth for the Derby, and, according to his Itiends, would have won that race but for ? being interfered with; but though he has fre quently run well, he had always shown hlm leii to be a non-stayer. Two others were quoted at the same price as he?Pompadour, a beautiful mare, who finished third to l'layfair for the Cambridgeshire, and Houghton, who won the Newmarket handicap last week. The Leopard ?bqfred great speed laHt year, but It was feared that bis lore legs were not adapted now lor coming down the hill from Tattenham Corner, and the Facha, who figured at the same odds, seemed better suited ror a longer course. A great many others were backed for small sums ror tne race, but It la only necessary to reler to Hurllnghani, the stable companion or Bertram, who was long at the head of the market, but was deposed when he was beaten last week at Newmarket by the Derby horse Hochstafler. Mornington, who was so little lan ded," even by ins owner, that he started at 40 to 1, and The Curate, whose owner, Mr. Hodgman, loudly announced that his " was not a-going to try" and that he "hail put up a strong boy. The fallowing is a summary:? The city and sibirean Handicap of 15 sovs. each, 10 forreit, and 6 11 declared, with 200 added; the owner or the second ?o receive 50 out or the stakes; winners extra.

The flag fell after very little delay to a good ?tart, and the first to show In advance were l'lay fair, Mornington and Pompadour, ol whom Morn ington waB soou steadied, anil the most prominent of the others were Visor, Hannah and Napolltain, with Bauernranger, Cremorne, Shelmartln, The Pacha, The Leopard and Bertram well up. I'ntll they got hair way round the top turu there was but slight variation or their positions, except that Visor took up the running alter 3oo yards had been not over, and that Dean of Westminster Mas knocked over by Ruffle and threw his jockey, little Archer, without, however, inflicting any injury. Visor had enough of It at the point mentioned, and retired, leaving Playfalr in command until Napoii tain raced up to him, when the pair went on close together In advance ol Mornington. Hannah, Cre morne and Bertram, Pompadour having by tills lime retired. These relative positions were not altered as thev went round Tattenham cor ner, but at this time the two leaders were lu trouble, and Cremorne, who was lying on the tilgh ground on the right, went to the front when they had got. Into the straight Hue for home, Mor fiiugton and Hannah lying well up in the centre of the track and Bertram on the left under the rails. Coming over the tan road which crosses the course Cremorne held an advantage ol ft couple of lengths, but at the distance Mornington dashed up and got on level terms with lilni, and passing turn led the Held. It was now evident that tie race was reduced to a match between the lavorlto and the "outsider." or whom the latter appeared to be having It all his own way; but In the last hundred yards Matdment brought up the Derby winner wnh a tremendous rush, but could not quite catch Mornington, who won, amid intense excitement, by three-quarters ol a length, while Bertram was beaten live lengths ror second place. Then came In order The Pacha, Templar, Napoil tain, Houghton, Hannah and Bauernianger; ami the last lot were Lucy Sutton, The Leopard, Clyde, The Curate aud the Morality colt. Time, 2:14. UK. BRAVI.EY WON HIT LITTLE bv the result, lor lie had backed his horse ror only a" small amount. Mornington ha* won several nu oortiint races a* a three-vear-old, such as the Brighton stakes and the Lewes handicap, but last aeuson lie ran five times wittaont securing a race. He is a line, big, handsome animal, but, If any thing. is rather linth on the leg. The best perform ance in the race was that of Cremorne, whose run ning Morniugton to a three-quarters or a length nnder sueh a heavyweight Is one or the finest things in the history ol the turr. Many are of opin ion that ll Maulnient had brougnt him ont earlier toe would have won, but I do not snare that view. The backers or Wolfliall were greatly disapponted, with the Ignoble exhibition he made of hlmsel!, and their chagrin was Increased the following day, when they saw his stuLle companion, St man, who at one time heavily backed lor the city and Jllil'UJf'tVU uX Walt# stakes lioui a large *M wtth Boch etw tt to eTl^nt He won Id have had a great cnance for tta handicap. h,WK? oT.os^0rr?T^2jj? r, fl?t ?J*to m exce "ntmjer, and therefore snSclaU* ioalifled for the Metro uolttan, which is run over ?T mU?.

Bertram again came ID for considerable support, though he had couclu giveiv shown In the City and Suburban that he would not stay, and Uhlan, though he was beaten at Newmarket last week, also round many friends. The oilier candidates do not call for notice. In the Great Metropolitan the horses run up the Derby course the reverse way from the winning post to the loot of the hill atTattenham corner, where iliey leave It and turn off to the right, passing along In a loop on the elevated ground nearly opposite the Grand Stand. They then again turn Into the Derby coarse not far from the starting post for the City and Suburban, and run thff re mainder of the distance over It. , TheGreat Metropolitan stakes (Handicap), of 25 sovs, each, 16lt., and 6 only If declared, with 200 added; the owner of the second to receive so sovs. out of the stakes; winners extra; alioot two miles and a quarter, to start at the Winning Chair; 63 snbs., 16 of whom pay 5 sovs. each.

On the lull of the flag Day Dream made the run ning at a very slow pace, with Westland, Uhlan, The Bishop, Lady Alice Hawthorn gelding, Ber tram and Napolitain, In close attendance. Dutch Skater and Shannon lay In the rear, and as the saddle of the latter slipped round she was never atile to play a prominent part In the race. Alter about a mile had been traversed the running was taken up by the Lady Alice Hawthorn gelding, lollowcd by Jarnac and Westland, while Uhlan lost grouud by running wide, and Dutch Skater was gradually getting forward. Mr. Savile's horse, however, rapidly made up his disadvantage, and when they had returned to the Derby course and were passing along the west of the lilil he went to the front. Coming towards Tottenham corner Uhlan was challenged by Dutch Skater and Morn lngton, the most prominent of the others being Bertram and Napolitain, while Day Dream and Lady Alice Hawthorn gelding retired, having had enough oi it. Uhlan was not dispossessed of Ills lead till about fifty yards irom the distance, where Morning ton Joined him, and he was soon afterwards passed also by Dutch Skater. Kordham, on tne latter, made his effort just where Maidment, on Cremorne, had done so on the previous day, but the aid horse could never get up, and was beaten by three lengths; and Uhlan finished only a head behind him. Bertram was a moderate fourth, and the eext in order were Jarnac, Lady Alice Haw thorn geiaing, Louise, The Bishop, Westland, and the last was Day Dream. Time, 4:17. Net value of the stakes, ?900 or $4,600. Yesterday was distin guished bj some of the UEAVIRST OAMBLINO we have Been for years. The object s of speculat ion belug the Two Thousand Guineas and tne Derby. The "form" Bliown by Cremorne and Uhlan was considered so good that there was a great rush on their stable companion, Kaiser, and about ?2,000 was invested on him at 6 to 2 and 6 % to 2 for the Guineas, and enormous bets, such as 10,000 to 2.500, would have been laid against him lor the Derby. Flageolet was backed for the Guineas, at 3 to 1, for nearly ?0,000. He is not engaged in the Derby. The running of Struan In the Prince or W ales' Stakes, already referred to, was so flue that Gang Forward, In the same stable, was entrusted with about ?3,ooo, at 5>, to 1, for the Guineas, and 7,ooo to 1.000 would have been taken about him for the Derby. For the earlier race 4,000 to 500 was laid against Somerset, 4,250 to 500 against Paladin, 2,ooo to loo against Bolard, and 2,000 to 100 against Don caster; while for the Derby 10,000 to 2,500 would have been betted against Ilochstapler. Altogether, it is seldom that speculation on such a scale is wit nessed, even on a> English race course. THE WESTEEN TUBE.

M1SCELLA N EOUS. The track at Dexter Park Is in order and the young ones are taking gentle canters. Flora (telle, who has been brought here from St. Louis, was out to-day looking blooming and moving well. There has been some talk of matching Chicago (formerly Koekey), the horse that beat Hotspur at Chicago In 1871, In the 2:24 clans, against the mare, but a prompt offer by the backers or Flora Belle to trot lor anything from $2,ooo to $10,000 has met with no response and is likely to go unanswered. The $1,200 match between these two very good two-year-olds, Viva and Marion, of which so much is heard and so little is known, will be run at the July meetlug li it is to be run at all. It Is well to remark that the trotting at Dexter Park will be under a code of rules prepared by the managers and presumedly favorable to the drivers rather than to tlie National Trotting Association.

Fire In tire Church if the Holy Sepul cbre al Bethlehem?Dispute About Tapestry and Pictures?An Interna tional Imbr??lio?'The Key of the C'hurch of the Watltrlty. The sensitiveness of Russia as to the guardian ship of the holy places in Palestine may be easily accounted for by the strong religious fervor of the subjects of the czar, who rests one of the strongest claims to the affection of his subjects on tits fidelity to and zeal in the cause of Creek Christians in the neighboring dominions of the Sultan. This policy is not at all strauge, considering that It ac cords entirely with the promotion of the most cherished objects of the Muscovite Empire. The present difficulties arc the mere revival or old quarrels which commenced when Russia llrst began to fasten her eyes on Con stantinople. 'They are actually trilling in themselves and bring the cause of Christianity into contempt, directly un.ier the observation of Mnssulmen. France, aB the protector of Latin monks and possessions, has unquestionably the oldest claim to recognition. By virtue of a treaty between Francis 1. ami the Sultan, In the seven teenth century, the holy places and the monks who took care of them were placed under the protec tion oi France. But the Creeks subsequently ob tained Annans from the Porte, and disputed the rights of the Catholic monks to the guardianship oi the shrines. The latter were described In the Hkrau> of last Sunday. FIRE AT TUB CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE. Quarrels, almost similar to those that look place, durlug the present month in Palestine, occune between the Latin and Greek priests until 1757, when a serious collision arose between the mem bers of the rival Churches. The matter was patched up by the Porte, but the seeds of future trouble re mained. in 1808 the Church of the Uoly Sepulchre was partLally destroyed by Are, and the "^eks obtained a ilrman authorizing them to rebuild it On the strength of this they claimed additional rights which were opposed by the Latins, an d led to so much scandal that the French and Russian irovernmeuts lnterlered, and again some sort ol a settlement was reached. Under the treaty of 1740 with the Porte France claimed for the Latin monks control or the places of pilgrimage, which were then In their possession, and that contro\ersies that could not be decided upon the spot.were to be referred to the Sublime Porte. In 18.i0 tne quca t on as to possession of the shrines once more arose and the Turkish government, being called uiinri'iieelded that a key to the Church of the Na tivitv at Bethlehem should be held by the Latin, Creek and Armenian communities. The Russians demanded that they should have exclusively a kt >, which was refused, aud the veteran declared that this gave to the Catholics of France an emblem or religious supremacy in the Last. The Crimean war followed. the i'kesbnt cause or quarrel. . Four vears have passed since the last variance originated between the Latins and Creeks at Bet i i<>tu>m A lire, as In 1808, was the cause. In 1809 the uincstries decorating the interior oi tho church Mudllis composed of Moslems Jews aud Chris tians states that the symbols and inscriptions still SKS SK X w?,r a*F., the tapestries which adorned the ceiling, tiiej were SO much burned and damaged by smoke that it was Impossible to discover what character to give the The TencHmbassador, acting for the Latins agreed with the Turkish government that the arras or the walls should be replaced by new tapestry as soon as possible, ornamented with the same kind o? workmanship as the old : that the tapestry of the ceiling should remain intact, and that four Ar memat three Creek and one Latin pictures should be plaoed in the church-the same proportions as there were betore the fire. A letter lrom the Grand Vizier confirmed this arrangement, and ordered the replacing or the objects at once; but this com mand remained unexecuted up to tho 1st or Marui lust At this period the Creeks removed a frag ment of the burned tapestry and ,,ie ^tln? V}'" mediately placed in the grotto a new oue. A dis pute arose in the grotto between the Latinand Kreek monks, and the Turkish soldiers had to in terlerc to restore order by occupying the lioly Places. A telegraphic despatch was sent from Constantinople, and it was agreed "Pon.bJ1.Vl? French Minister and the high Turkish authorities that the tapestry hung up by the taken away ami the one provided bv the Turk. sn government should take its place at once, rht (iri-cks however, were still dissatisfied and com plained' that the new tapestry wiw shorter than the old oue. ^ deljiy is Tnn settlement. The mil of Khalil Pacha brought about a delay in the execution of the last order, but another was sent to the Governor ol Jerusalem directing him to cam out the decision consented to by the French Ambassador. It was expected that peace would be restored in Bethlehem, but the collision recently reported, m which many el the monks were in lured gives a new lace to the difficulty. The Rus sian government demands the punishment of the i at ins which It is not likely the Porte will consent ^ particularly as the tr.-aty of 186? Ijaj elt o France the task oi representing the Latin rite In the Holy Land, and to Turkey tne protection or all other Christians. Such questions as the rival rlalms of France and Kus-la as to possession of the shrines may remain a lon(t period the subject of diplomatic correspondence and when least ex pected ?ome to a crisis.

EFFICACY OF MARTIAL LAW. Ban Antonio, Texas, May 3, 1873. Those who reBide In emeu, alar Irom the wilds in which the savage roams, can scarcely conceive his character, or even his appearance. The painted braves who make visits to the Great Father, and who are lollowed with eager cariosity by crowds as they pass through your streets, are not the proper specimens. You should see them as they appear out here, the men erect in their own skins, except a clout, every muscle showing wnat strength and endurance there Is in the hardy frame, which is not even protected by a covering. The women don the same costume, and do not seem to think it at all amiss to show their classic busts in all the beauty of nature. LlflHT MAKCIUNO WAKKIORH. These people emphatically carry no baggage, and, when necessity requires it, they can scale mountains where a cat could scarcely climb. En cumbered and hampered wltn clothing, how is it possible for the white troops or the black brigades to do the same ? The officers of negro regiments, which are concen trated here, maintain that their soldiers can cope with the Indian; that they go into action with a yell, which demoralizes the red skins, and that they lignt bravely. But, how often will the Indians permit themselves t? be forced into a pitched bat tle? One can conceive the disgust of the Indians at being brought into collision with negroes, and what distaste they must have for taking a woolly scalp. Hut that the negro cau ever surpass or even equal the white man as an Indian fighter will scarcely find credence in many brains. At one of the forts, some years ago, an officer deter mined to go on a scout with about fifteen darkies. When the latter got tired they simply refused to go another foot, in spite of orders and the rage of the officer. Oo back they would and did, and were meted out afterwards a proper punishment. One of our distinguished officers, Major General Irvin McDowell, when in command in Arizona, struck THE KEY-NOTE OF PROPER POLICY. The Apaches have hereditary enemies, the l'iraos, who are lrlendly to the whites and do not seek their blood. They carried this feeling so lar as to reiuse enlisting in the service, becausc they feared a collision between the French in Mexico and the United States, and did not wish to shed white blood. Ilclng as sured upon this poiut, and that uuder no circumstances suosld they be led against the whites, 200 of their best warriors at once enlisted, upon condition that they might select their own time for operations, And would only draw pay and rations while in active service. Their horses were offered for use lor merely keeping them properly shod. The result ot the policy was wonderful. About 400 extra warriors came lorward to assist in the fights, simply sharing the pay of the others, and being lurnished with rations. During the lull moon they went on the warpath. The balance of the month?the dark of the moon?they preierred to stay at home to assist their women about their crop. The Apaches were soon driven to their hiding places, and kept in terror and subjection. It Is very probable that General Crook has used the same auxiliaries in the late successful operations. An officer in Oregon, some years ago. engaged some Indians to go with him on a scout, in two days they all deserted in disgust. When asked for reasons they said "WHITE MAN IS A FOOI. Tie gets up In the morning and makes heap noise. He travels in nay time and kicks up mucu dust. See him lor twenty miles. At night he makes big fire. See hiui everywhere." They had considered their personal sulety endangered, as the hostile Indians were at once warned of the coming attack, and were hidden, or preparing for an ambuscade, where the advantage would cer tainly be all on their own side. The Indian plan is entirely different. In the bright moonlight they rapidly* follow a trail, and when morning dawns they hide away to sleep, posting a sentinel In some high position, from which to watch the country. At nightfall their luture action Is determined by the observations of the sentry, and again they travel with rapidity by moonlight. If the enemy is overtaken the blow is ?track Without delay, and one object Is especially to kill every member Of the party. If even one man escapes the attacking party will turn in stanter and decamp, to avoid being overtaken in turn and surprised In an enemy's country. It will not do to class all Indians together, and place all alike In a similar reservation. Herein is ONE OK THE DIFFICULTIES, which is the greatest to surmount. Some tribes live by fishing, others by hunting, while the Dig gers and other* are lower in toe scale and live even oil grasshoppers. Some arc lowlanders, and others are only willing to live in the mountains. Probably these reasons greatly influenced the Modocs in refusing to leave their homes, and they determined to die rather than to be transferred places, where they would have been out ol their element. II Captain Jack had stood upon that de. termination his name and fame would not have suffered, it is only the treachery and perfidy which accompanied his actions that now make the extermination of the warriors a alne qua non; but the perfidy of the white man la the past has had much to do with the diffi culties which the Indian question bo unwelcomely thrusts upon us. The wishes of the white man have always been carried out, however Punic the faith may have been. And the recollection of these acts, handed down from generation to gener t Ion in the Indian tribes, have caused much of that mistrust in the Indian mind, and has been the source of self-justiUcatiou lor their treachery aud robbery and murder. General McDowell mentioned to me once the horror and perturbation lelt by his auxiliary Indians when thev showed him the dead body of one of their warriors, murdered by a Texan, who escaped scot free. The untutored tulnd could scarcely conceive how a great, nation would permit a friend to be assassinated and that no punishment woul I be inflicted. And yet this is one of the great sources of future trouble, the IMPOSSIBILITY OF PfNI.-HINU WniTK MTRDEREKS by juries; aud It is Idle to thluk of any other ulti mate result than the extermination of the Indians, unless the government will boldly tak? the author, ity of governing the Indian country by martini law, and bring every man, white, red or black, under the jurisdiction of the drum-head ceurt mar tial. This power has been freely exercised in the States, in spite of protestations and denunciations of violated constitutions. The Josttfication ha* only been political. Hut In the Indian settlements It would be sound nubile policy, and would teach the Indian that his rights would t>e maintained, and prwmpt punishment would be dealt out to the bad white men, who embroil the races by detestable and horrible deeds, and thus bring destruction upon the weaker race. Forts should not be lo cated In the white settlements, but rather placed In the Indian csuntry. where surveillance coull be constant and repression Instantaneous. NEW YORK CITY.
