Second Day of the Spring Meeting
at Jerome Park.
How the Beauties of the Boudoir Looked
and the Beauties of the Stable Ran.
Xaty Pease Wins the Ladies' Stakes,
Preakness the Jockey Club Handicap
Sweepstakes, Brennns the Sell
ing Eace and Fadladeen
the Mile Heats.
The second day of the Spring meeting at Jerome
Park was a success as to racing and weather, and
very fair as to attendance. In a subdued manner,
It Is the Lady's Day or the American tnrf, as the
Oaks is the hippie speciaclc In England sacred to
the fairer half of humanity. Had It is to say that
New York yesterday did not pour as high a wave
of beauty over the graud stand as the
ocean of London rolls, with theen of silk
und loam of tulle over the broud downs
of Epsom, when the three-year-old Alios
contcud over the world-famous race course.
But there were choice wavelets of loveliness at
Jerome Park for all that, and, us may be noted be
low, sweet things in bonnets and hats and irre
sistiblo webs of raiment made bright eyes, pouting
lips, fairy lorms and dainty hands look all the more
bewitching. Ah! to catalogue these costumes, to
describe tlicm with the most harrowing techni
cality, gives to the simple student of tho beautiful
a very slim and delusive iuca of what the ensemble
is when there is a palpitating being beneath the
purple and tine linen I Towards three o'clock
commenced to droop, and when the heavy drops of
rain checkered the pavements with their ominous
rings the wiseacres who remained at home must
have chuckled with sell-satl >faction. But soon old
fcol, who has so often proved a trump, soared aloit
like the great American bird, and the style In which
the process of evaporation was carried on failed
not to elate the patrons of the turf, while the loll
ago in the Park scorned to greet every
comer witli tears of joy. Rarely, If ever,
has that charming demesne looked to such
advantage, and when the dust was nicely laid and
the feeling of disappointment was succeedcd by
that oi gratitude anH mirth, the drive became all
that fancy ever painted it. Upon the head of the
statue of the venerable and respected Professor
Morse was
Jolng the best It could to make things merry, and
nobody passed the bird without a kindly feeling. A
gentle breeze tanned the brow of many a wayfarer,
who, with ill-concealed regret, restrained his
speed in presence of the pray -coated officers that
launter up and down the road In quest of "eases,''
which they rarely find. Seven miles an hour was
the regulation, but it might have been seventeen
lor all that, with such tirllliant fun ahead. And all
banas went forth lively to the grounds, just as they
will do to the end of time.
for a closer day has seldom come around, but It
made no diirerence so long as overhead was
fair. Scores of handsome equipages, scores of
dog and donkey carts were there; scores of topless
wagons and cranky sulkies, all rushing to the
scene with various kinds of freight, from boiled
chickens to melting matrons of the third degree.
It was the same joylul, exhilarating panorama
that ever marks the approach to the race grounds.
Tbere was nothing new and there was nothing old,
while the surroundings were all that tradition has
made ramous, save and except the indecorous ele
ment, which, by the way, is rarely seen on the
road in these quarters. Looking to the right,
lay when passing old Mount St. Vincent llospltal,
the view of historic Yorkville might, perhaps,
in a remote degree, recall to mind
on the half-shell, so to speak, for between the
mattered sbaatles In the back ground and the
crumbling rocks und stones and other worse than
senseless things, the sentlmeiua lst would be In
clined to dream of days cone by, though a keener
glance will disclose to the practical mind a trtving
and prosperous spot, if smoke be any criterion of
success. Few however, thought of Yorkvlle, en
route lor the races, for ks die sun shone brightly
all sped along full or glorious anticipation. Kven tho
boys on the road, anxious to water and sponge
travellers for a trifle, were Id great
giee and armed with buckets jocosely contronted
drivers with many a saucy jest. With all this the
humors of the road were few and far between, lor
the patrons of Jerome Fark evidently draw a wide
discrimination between the rollicking fuD which
characterises the famous sporting grounds abroad
and the quiet pleasures ot the race on this side of
the Atlantic. From early morning there was a sus
picion 01 cloudiness in the sky. that made some
very prudent race-bound people lay in
that distracted anil distressed them frequently
through the heat ol the day. To be sure thev were
occasionally gratified by imagining that it was
about to rain, and then their looks of triumphant
spleen, succeeded by profuse perspiration as the
heavens cleared, were highly amusing. The wise
virgins themselves, with their tittle oil cans, would
surely have said It was "a uowurlght shame'' 11 the
wedding party bad put iu an appearance in the
daytime. But the majority were of the pure holt
day order, who go out taking all the odds thatold
Probabilities migiit choose to put up against the
lmpervlou.--ness oi their clothing. The sccne
was about ax usual. The young gallants who came
out at a spanking pace behind a pair of fiery chest
nuts rubbed shoulders with and bought pools be
side the great unsorted who came out by the steam
car* from Forty-second street. It Is surely a sight
to thank Providence on to see the merchant or
hundreds ot thousands a year look as it his
profits were mertgaged ten vears ahead when he
shares tbe sensation of losing a little bet on his
favorite. The man of chronic money-risking habits
tukes things easier. It Is a pleasure to sec such a
one lose and smile as artlessly as a babe betore it
cuts its tlrst tooth. We have
over the English turf? namely, that the agony of
losing money does not produce such painful demon
sirativeness here as on the other side of the ocean.
We have uo suicides following the great racing
days here. >ot wishing to intiude these painful
thoughts upon what should be the description of a
bright aud happy scene, the line of comparison Is
dropped lorthe same reason tnat the Western en
gine driver objected to running over people? "it
musses the engine."
By three o'cIock, tbe time or starting for the
Ladies' Stakes, tbe Grand Stand was fairly
filled and presented an interesting appear
ance as the benches gradually disappeared
from view. The start was put down punctually
for three, and haste was the word with late
comers. Out of forty-three fillies entered eight
were named as starte'rs. and the girls were out lor
their preliminary canters as a rivulet of beauty and
expensive millinery came prettily down the rocky
incline from the club house on the Muff to take po
sition for viewing the ladles' race. While the fair
creatures are struggling through the programme to
And out the D (lies' names ror their jockeys' colors,
and while the more knowing are descanting on the
form and gait of the fleet coursers cantering
around or pawing the earth, we may glance at the
outer envelope or the Goddess Faehion, as she ap
peared at the moment.
The modistes occupy as prominent a position at
the Jerome Park races as the proudest member of
the club; not personally, certainly, but by their
handiwork. It is bard to note more than a few of
the most striking toilets amid snch an assemblage
of female beauty, but tbe following were observed
among the most elegant:?
Striking, yet not toe pronntuee for the occasion,
was a toilet worn by a tall, graceful blonde, who
languidly watched the proceedings in the Club
Honse piazza, while her attendant cavalier gently
swayed her Watteau fan of white silk, exquisitely
tainted. Over a demi-traln skirt oi rather dark
blue poult de sole, trimmed with narrow flounces,
scalloped and edged with fine Valeucienncs lace,
was a Watteau redingote of Aigeneu goods,
white stripes alternating with light blue ones
edged w lib flue film threads. The material was
made np so that t tic stripes were perpendlcnlar in
stead of <vi lunjinUre. 'Ihe garment. waa exceed

eight fillies came down the stretch magnificently

n There were more damp handkerchiefs left Jerome

impetuois than his fellow pushed forward with
lUely gait. All along the homeward route crowds
of spectators watched with eager eye the passing
equipages, some or which excited admiration. The
Halting places on the way were crowded to excess
??an/.,a.rac? comMent on the day had ampio
scope. All iu all, the .second day's meeting of the
I Ciub gave unbounded satisfaction.
A most excellent track and delightful weather
seemed to please both horse and rider yesterday
afternoon, as the racing was of a most superior
order. Pour events were on the card, comprising
the Ladies' Stakes for three-year-old Allies; the
i Jockey Club Handicap Sweepstakes, a selling race
of a mile and a furlong, and mile beats.
The Ladles' Stakes lor three year-old Allies closed
with forty-three nominations, of which eight came
to the post. These were I). McDanlel A Co.'s chest'
nut Oily Katie Pease, by Planet, dam Minnie Mans
1 field ; W. Cottrill's bay filly Sallie Watson, by
' I?aniel Boone, dam Maggie G. ; K. W. Sears' brown
filly Annie Mali, by Leamington, d"m
Echo; Thomas W. Doswcll's gray filly

1 W. CottrUl's chestnut Ally Alice Mitchell,
by Planet, dam Volga; James A. Grtnstead's chest
nut filly Eclair, by Lightning, dam Brenna; A. Bel
mont's chestnut filly Electra, by Kentucky, dam
Bernice, and the same gentleman's bay Ally Me
dora, by Kentucky, dam Camilla. Cottrill's en
! tries were the favorites, McDanlel's Ally second
j choice. The latter won the race, Mr. Cottrill's Sal
i He Watson second; Mr. sears' Leamington Ally
was third. The winner of this race is a most j

j of her Bize. she ran four times as a two-year-old,
winning once. Tbis was at Saratoga on the 22d of
, Angust. in a free handicap, carrying eo lbs., one !

Pennock's Jack Malone filly, she was beaten at !
Fordham by Springbok and Minnie W. five tnr. 1
longs, and in the Nursery Stakes by Wlldidle, Long
Branch and Catesby, and in the Kentucky !
stakes by Silk Stocking, Revller, Catea- I
by, Electra and Rtrachlno, Katie Pease has
changed wonderfully with the year, and it
ts very doubtful whether any of those who
beat her last year "have a license" to do so thin.
Sallie Watson ran a good race, bnt why she shonld
have been the favorite we were at a loss to know.
Mr. Cottrlll said she had never run a longer dis
lance than mile heats and never carried heavier
weights than 87 lbs. Here she had to pile up to?
lbs. and rnn a mile and Ave furlongs. There Is no
doubt that her race with Tom Bowling at Lexing
ton. at the Spring meeting, wnen she made that
famous colt run two heats of a mile and repeat
race in each had the effect of making her
j backers lay out their money so wildly. Great mis
i takes are frequently made here on horses that have
j won a fast record in the W'est or South. Our people
do not reflect on the difference of weight carried
{ in that section and here. Again, horses are very
apt to lose tome of their "loot" by a travel in ,
I the cars of three or four days, aud It '?
sometimes takes a whole season to get !
| them back to tlie spe ed thei left home with. Tlieie I
Id no doubt but thai Sallie Watson is a capita) race '
I tiag, aud that there will be many a prize tor her to
, wai ana carry back lo ber home at Muuuq i
the next snow fails. Annie ITall Is a very fair look
ing filiy, and will uo doubt win enough during the
year to pay lor training ami oats. Wo will say
nothing about, the others until they distinguish
themselves by gome well won race.
The Jocucy Club Handicap Sweepstakes had six
starters out of twenty-six entries. These were Mr.
Sanford's hay horse Preaknesa, by Lexington, dam
Hay Leaf, h years old; Thomas W. Doswell's bay
horse Eolus. by Leamington, dam Kanny Washing
ton. 5 years old; D. McDanlcl A Co.'s chestnut colt
Hubbard, by Planet, dam Minnie Mansfield, 4 years
old; I). J. Rannatyne's chestnut horse stockwood,
by Asteroid, dam Alabama, 5 years old; Isaac W.
Pcunock's bay colt by Vandal, dam Margravine,
4 years old, and W. R. Rabcock's chest
nut mare Ethel Spragne, by Jack Muione,
dam Vesper Light, 4 years old. Preakness had
the call In the betting, llubbard being the second
choice, Eolus third. Preakness won a very easy
race in the lastest time evor made on the Jerome
Park track. He, however, earned six pounds less
than his regular weight. Preakness Is a strange
horse and makes strange races. When he is him
self and feels like running he is an A No. 1 race
horse; but when he la not Preakness and does not
fool like running he cau be beaten by second raters.
He iB now In high flesh, and as he lias always run
best when fat probably it wilt pay his owner to
keep him so. He wus cut in the race by some other
horse, as was also Eolus, the latter very badly. No
one seemed to know who did the mischief, hut
whoever It was should bo punished, and a heavy
reward should be given for Jhe discov
ery of the perpetrator. Some horses wore
Injured last Saturday in the same way;
and until an cxamplo is inado of the Jockey who
ran on Eolus and Preakness this fiendish business
will be continued. Eolus ran a good race, and
was two lengths behind Preakness at the finish.
Hubbard was third, six lengths behind Eolus, the
others a lung way oft.
The third was a selling race, with the usual al
lowances for low value In the norsea. There were
eleven starters, comprising John P. ohamhoilaiu's
gray gelding Hrenuus, carrying 05 lbs. ; Hunter A
Travels' chestuut illly Quits, 80 lbs. ; 1). Buckley's
chestnut mare Chickabiddy, 100 lbs. ; Jo. Donahue's
chestnut horse Sauford, 10ti lbs. ; H, Shea's chest
nut gelding Giuger, 104 lbs. ; Tnos. W. Doswell's bar
mare Winesap, I041bs. ; W. R. Rabcock's bay horse
Conductor, lufl lbs.; D. McDanlel A Co.'s I my colt
Boss Tweed, 103 lbs. ; George Donlson's bay guiding
Marcus, 101 lbs.; John Harbeek, Jr. 'a chest
nut horse Cadence, 104 lbs., and L. W.
Jerome's bay colt, So lbs. Quits and Chickabiddy
were the lavoritea; bnt the race was won by
lirenuus in very good style. He sold very low in
the pools and In the i'aris Mutueis. In the latter
nearly one hundred and fifty dollars was paid tor
the $5 invested on him. Rrennus was sold after
the race to Mr. Bathgate for $50<).
The mile heat rico that closed the sports of the
day was very exciting. Tt was betweon Thomas
W. Doswell's chestnut horse Eadladocn and A.
Belmout's gray colt llray Id an ot. They had three
heats, and the race was won by Fadladoen.

The Allies had a most excellent start from under
the blutf, and dashed away at a rapid rate all iu a
bunch, Alice Mitchell with a trifle the best or the
lead, sallie Watson second, Eiectra third, Medora
fourth, Lizzy Lucas filth, Katy Pease sixth, Annie
Hall seventh and Eclair eighth. They passed out
of sight around the hill in this order; but when
they appeared on the lower turn Eiectra was show

third, Mcdura fourth, Katy f'etue fifth. Lizzy Lucas
sixth, Eclair seventh and Annie Hall eighth, but
all of them In a cluster. They ran up the home
stretch as close together as it was possible lor
them to be, and as they passed under the wire at

Katy Pease second, Alice Mitchell third, Sallie
Watson fourth, Eiectra fifth, Eclair sixth, Lizzy

race course, the fillies were so close together.
Going around the upper turn Katy Pease took the
first place irotn Eiectra, Sallie Watson third, Lizzy

behind. As the fillies came down and passed under

second, Eclair third, Lizzie Lucas fourth, Alice
Mitchell fifth, Annie Hall sixth, Eiectra seveuth,
Medora eighth. They then passed around the hill,
and while they were out oi sight the majority of
them were whipped and began to tail off. When

leading about three lengths, and from her gallant
manner of running it was evident that she would
come home a winner, barring accidents. Sallie
Watson was running second, and all the others
appeared out of the race. Katy Pease came on In
band, and won by two lengths, Sallie Watson sec

Match Between the St. George** and
Staten Island Clnbs-A Sli lilt and the
*"??t In the Swamp? Jonei, o t St.
George's, the Capturer of Six Wickets?
The Mateh To Be Continued To-Day.
Yesterday afternoon, at three o'clock, wickets
were pitched at the Hoboken Cricket Ground for a
return match between the Staten island and St.
George's clubs, the former having been defeated in
the match played at Staten Island en Decoration
Day. A considerable number of visitors, including
ladles, were on the ground, and the weather was
all that could be desired by the most enthusiastic
cricketer. The St. George's having won the choice
for innings, elected to go in, an. I sent a couple of
their steady bats in? viz. Jones and smith?
the former having considerably distinguished
himself by his batting agaii.st the English Kleteii
last year. Alter a short time lie scored thirteen
principally off Brewster's bowling, oue of his hits
being a magnificent drive of six over bowler's
head into the marsh outside the cricket ground
where it Imbedded itself like a speut cannon ball
and was consequently lost. Smith scored thirteen
by careful play. Sleigh then followed, and by some
very clever play scored twenty-seven. Including
several tine leg hits. The adding of the Staten
Island Club was good. If not brilliant, but they were
unfortnnato in playing without Outerbridge. The
bowling or Harvey was somewhat, badiy punished,
on account of it being easily ??collared.'' The St.
George s ( Inb played two men short, and their
eighth wicket fell lor seventy-lour runs.
The Staten Island then went ts the wicket after
dinner and sent in Filmer and Davis, who made
each but short innings, and, lu fact, the only stand
made was by Tucker, who scored seven. Jones
captured no less than six wickets and gained great
upplause lor his bowling and catching. The lidd
ing of the St. (ieorge's was excellent. The match
is to be continued this aiternoon, when the wt
George's will commence their innings at three
o'clock. The following are the scores:?

Interesting Shell Race on the Harlem
River? David Roache, of the Nautilus
Club, vs. Kben Loice, of the Atalanta
Club? Roache the Winner.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. David Roache, of the
Nautilus Boat Club, and Mr. Eben Loscc, of the At
alanta Boat Club, both prominent organizations on
the Harlem River, rowed a straightaway shell raco
on that stream from the "powder schooner" to High
Bridge, a distance of two miles, for a prize of $100.
One of these men? Mr. Losee? has long been known
among aquatic followers In this section of the
country, and was regarded as tho best
oarsman of his weight and Inches that
ever got into a boat. Ue has held the
championship under which he Is classed (of the
Hudson) for several years, and nls friends held that
the man had yet to be lound who could successfully
measure blades with him. The Nautilus boys, how
ever, thought tney had In Roache an opponent
worthy of Losee's reputation, and some time since
members of the two clubs decided that a race
should be rowed by them for a prize, as stated;
hence the present contest.
For the event both men had undergone a careful
preparation, and no doubt they were lit for the
engagement. Losee is twenty-nine year9 of age,
stands Ove feet three inches and weighed, just be
fore getting into his shell, loo pounds.
Roache is much younger, barely beyond his ma
jority, but is one luch taller and weighed 115
pounds in his working clothes? both "feather
weights" indeed.
Roache rowed In a shell 2!) feet long, 9\' inches
wide and weighing 29 pounds. Colors, white shirt
and blue pants.
Losee's boat was 26 feet 6 inches In length, 9K
wide, and weighed 24 pounds. Colors, criuidou
shirt and white drawers.
Around the new settlement on the narlem; there
was much anxiety regarding the contest; but the
majority, in fact, nine-tenths, of the oarsmen
thought it was "dollars to doughnuts" that Losee
Would beat his opponent. Between five and six
o'clock was appointed for the men to take their
positions, as the tide, being first of the flood, would
serve, and long before the hour the river was
pretty well covered by boats of all character, from
the clumsy Whitehall to the pretty shell, all making
their way to the starting point. The not extra
large stesmboat Pope Catlin, but a craft well
adapted tor the purpose, had been engaged
to lollow the rowers, and at the appointed time It
appeared off the boat house*, and, taking all on
board who desired to go, steamed to her place
beside the powder schooner. Meanwhile Mr.
Oorge ltoah, judge for Losee, and J. (J. Uabcook,
holdng the like posttton for Roache, had agreed
upon Mr. (leorge Itrown, of the New York Athletic
Club, to act as referee. It did not take the contest
ants long to get ready, us, upon the arrival of the
catlin, each was found In place, Losee nearest to
the schooner. The water was smooth as a mirror
and the evening of the most delightful
character for such a race. On every hand
were friends of the rowers, but thoso attracting
the most attention were the Nautilus, four-oared
gig. with Jimmy Ten Eyek pulling No. 3; the
liramercy's eiglit-oare barge, and tho Columbia
and Athletic clubs' shells. The referee, without
waste of time, gave the "go" at eh. 59m. 15s., and
the men cut vhe water simultaneously and went
away on their journey on level terns. Losee was
quickest to settle to his work, and, stroking
I rapidly, he drove his boat several feet In front,
I and Koache rowing "abroad."' the Atalanta man
drew his crait clear of the other before an
eighth of a mile had been covered. Now
the irlends of Losee on the Catlin grew wild with
: excitement and offered 100 to 26 on "the little lel
| low," which odds were many times taken, much to
I the delight 01 the takers, as the sequel will show,
i Keeping up steam, Losee placed an additional half
i a length between him and his opponent, rowing
forty strokes to his thirty-six, ana now seemed to
I have the rac? In hand. In the next minute or so,
; however, there was a ch.tnge. as Roache. getting
himself well straightened out, began to pick
np, and when gono about lour minutes he
I had so outpaced l.os^e that they were 011 even
: terms, and the Nautilus man took every one bv
I surprise by launching out so finely, which closed
I the gap. Here tne race, and at Its most interest
i ing point, wa? marred by a foul, and this seemed
I tobe Koache s fault, but l.osee's judge did not
claim it at the finish, and the matter was
passed without much notice. Breaking away,
the men did their best, but it was now
evident that the Atalanta man was beaten, as
Koache gradually drew away from him and gave
him the full benefit of his wash. Going under
Macomb's Dam Bridge Rosche was three clear
boats' lengths in advance, and this distance was
accomplished In exactly 7 minutes to Losee's
7 minutes anil 15 seconds. Kach was
now rowing thirty-six strokes te the inlnute,
Koache pulling in elever style and with case, while
Ixisce's strength seemed io have tailed, and ho
nsed his "sliding seat" in such an awkward
manner as to be universally commented upon,
the decision being that ho would have done much
better with a stationary seat, the rig was so mis
erable. Wnen away thirteen minutes Losee was
thoroughly used up and Roache had the race In
his hands, lie passed uuder tho High Bridge a
winner by five boat lengths In 14 minutes 45 sec
onds, amid mueh enthusiasm. Losee's time was
I 14 minutes 67 seconds. The Atalanta boys re
I turned home fully convinced that, like other sports,
| "there's nothing sure in boating."
The police reoort that a large quantity of finely
, executed ten s'ent stamps are iu circulation.

Fnneral on Friday? At
tendance of the Sev
enth Regiment
TKe arrangements for paying a proper tribute of
respect to lite memory of Uie late James L. Orr,
United States Minuter to Russia, were continued
yesterday, and coudacted with a solemnity an<l
decorum that could not fall to show that when
death comes to us it levels all distinctions, party
or otherwise, in the remembrance that it 1* the in
evitable lot of all men once te die. It was
arranged on Tuesday that about half-past nine
o'clock on tho following (yesterday) morning that
the revenue cutior Jasmine should be in at
tendance to take on board tho Knights Templars
who were desirous of receiving the body.
In accordance with this about eighty of
the kuigliU met in the Governor's room
at the City Hall at nine o'clock, aud under the di
rection ol Klwood E. Thorne, D. 0. M., lormed (a
the Park and marched down Broadway to the Bat
tery. The frolics arrangements, which were admi
rably carried out, were under tne direction or In
spector George Dilks and Captain Leary. The
party embarked at ten o'clock in the Janmine,
which was commanded by Lieutenant Parker, an?t
steamed to the pier of the North German Steam
ship Company at Iloboken.
The Thuringia, which was lying outside the pie*
on the previous day, had taken her placo in the
dock, and the Kntglita on landing had to pass
through a large number or emigrants and their
baggugo to leach the steamer. The Knights were
received by Captain Me.ver, or the Thuringia, an?t
on the deck they were taken to a very heavy look
ing box, which contained tho caakot and the re.
mains of the deceased Minister. The box bore the
roliowmg Inscription : ? "J. L. o., Charleston. S. C."
It was at once seen by the undertaker, Mr. Senior,
thai it would cause considerable delay to unpack
the box on board, and the Jasmine therefore eaine
alongside the steamer, and, by aid of the holar,
tne box was lowered on to tho deck or the cutter,
the bed ol the steamer toiling meanwhile. On the
passage down the river the case was removed and
the casket was revealed.
Tlljfi CASKET.
The casket was heavily draped with Mack crape
and trimmed with (luted fringes or the same ma
terial, Interlaced with silver trimming. Pour rich,
tassels 01 bullion silver hung at tne head aud loot,
and a border or white s.ttin was placed around the
casket. On a silver plate was the following in
scription :?
i Horn m Cray tons vlile, South Carolina. t
* _ Mav 12, 1822. >
i Died in St. Petersburg, April 23 (May 6), 1873, *
