The Seventh Annual Regatta of the Columbia Yacht Club. Iha Commodore, Journeyman, 0. B. Deane and Tough the Winners. & PROTEST AGAINST THE COMHODORE. The seventh annual regatta or the Columbia Tacht Club was sailed yesterday and proved a very enjoTaole affair. as, notwithstanding a drift in the morning, me yachts had a lively beat to wind ward on the way home, fhe Columbia Yacht Clnb has gained considerable strength since last sea eon, and Commodore John S. Gage may congratu late himself on having the command of the Quest fleet of yachts owned by any yacht clnb in New lork waters, excepting the New York, Brooklyn, Atlantic and Seawanhaha. Their clnb house is pleasantly situated at the loot of Fifty-seventh irreet, North River and they have a good holding anchorage right In front of the btoldlng. ,-hortly alter nine o'clock, yesterday morn ing the yachts were towed out from their an eh rage and placed in line as directed in the pro gramme. "The yachts win start Irom an anchorage off the club house, loot of flity-seventh street, aud ?ha.l be anchored at least too feet apart. Cabin sloops In advance -jnd open sloops to fhe soath ward m their respective classes." The steamer Fort Lee arrived sftortiv betore ten o'clock A. M? with a large party on board, ami lay alongside the dock. The Hogutta Committee were Mr. Robert Wilson, who had charge of ttie Fort Lee, and Messrs. Jacob Van Orden, Henry Andruss, Stephen Johnston and Teunis spear. The following yachts started in the*race:? CABIN SLOOPS. Same. Owner. Feet. John S. Gage 1>. C. Ueardsley at. : W. H. Hamilton J. S.

For third class yachts, irom a stakeboat an chored off t tie club hon.se to and around a stake - boat anchored off Spuyteu Duvvil, tutning the same from east to west. Race to terminate t>y passing home stakeboat off club house to the east ward. The signal for starting was as follows >-At halt-past nine o'clock, first gun to get in ifiie: second gun, get ready I third gun, for first class .to start; fourth gun, lor the remainder to start. Tuere was hardly a breath of wind, and conse quently the judges-.Messrs. Charles Blackie and tk N. Simouson?delayed the start for some lew minutes, In order to give all yachts a cnanee to take their positions. The John & Gage was towed up the river by a steam tug, and as soon as she had taken up her position, at llh. own.. ibesrartmg gnu tor the cabin sloops was fired and five minutes afterwards another gun let the second and third class get under war. THE START waanot very interesting, as there was hardly a breath or air aDd it was only even betting whether chey would not float down with the tide to the Battery, instead ot going up stream. The Com modore finally canght a little flaw irom the norrh saat and trimmed close on the starboard tack, stood in- towards the Jersey shore so as to catch the eddy or the ebb. The Journeyman got a nice little start by swinging forward on her moorings and followed after-the Commodore. The w. H. Hamilton loand it pretty hard work making any headway and barely held her own against the tide. The Pride of the Tough Club was moving ahead, a short distance astern of the G. B. Deane. it was a very uninteresting sight, and the people on board the Fort Lee commenced an attack on tbe lager and sandwiches by way of consolation, pome insane Terpwchorean developments were also mane, but a- tne ladles generally finished uu pleasantlv heated tbev gave that up iu disgust and went bock to lac-r and flirtation. It waa quire surprising to see how well ? tie two went together. The Commodore was still leading, followed by the Deane. and presenile the Hamilton causrht a little breeze and < anie up pretty well, rlosely followed bv ex mod<>re J. Noble's smart little boat Oeorire W. Com mom Dint.- The breeze was still veery. bareiv sufficient to fill the canvas, and all tne yachts were hugging the Jersev snore. The Dilka Anally passed the Hamilton and went on after rue Deane. The Utter went by ttie Commodore and took ilrst place, and the Hamilton also tame up. iOilowed bv the Tough and Bonita. The JohD ?. Cage, the Incline aiid tee K.izabeth Howe were all some distance oenind, evidently wanting a little more wind. The Bonita now took up the lead on the Jersev snore, closely lodowea by the Commodore, ami lire Deane was over ou the New York sute, taking a line oi her own. The Commodore passed the Bonita a little to the northward 01 iort bee, followed by the Bonita. The Hamilton, leading the rest of tire fleer, was some distance behind. but had uer sheet aft and was evidently bringing up a breeze. A* tne yachts approached the stakeboat off Mount Sc. \ intent the Commodore made a stretca across the river and iast struck the Westchester shore a couple of hundred yard* In advnnce of the Deane and Journeyman. Tne Hamilton, alter passing the Bonita. also made across and lollowed uiter the Journeyman. The Commodore gybed her boom over to starboard as she approached the stake iioat, and as she luffed around hauled her sheets ait and went booming along on the port tuck head ing d?r Jersey shore. The Deane went round next, lollowed shortly aiterward by the Journeyman ?ud Hamilton. The yachts turned the stakeboat off Mount St. Vincent as loliows:? Yachts. If. M. S. Yachts. H. M. S.

There was now a iresh southerly breeze, and the yachts were mak ing, lively time stretching down the river. In the meantime toe Tough had turned the stakeboat. nfl' bpuyten linvvii about a quarter Of an hour ahead 01 anyihlng in ner class, and was leading the fleer. The Journeyman whs wen handled, and in the sec ond tack passed the Ueauc and lollowed alter the Commodore. Th" latter had a movable covering to her cabin, with canvas walls, and the afore said walls appeared to give considerable un easiness to several gentlemen on board tue fort i-oe. as they made two or three protests to tne judges that the left Hup of the iront of the wall on tne starboard side was open, and conse quently 1 he Commodore should be ruled our 01 the race. Dining the sail up, 11 ail the itont flaps had been up it would have done the Commodore more harm than good, as the only time there was any wind it was dean alt. and consequently 1: the flaws had been close'! they would -have offered some resistance to ilf wind and helped the boat.

The Hudson County Fair GronmJ Association opened Its new truck yesterday at Wfcst Hide Park, Jersey City, it being the Inauguration ol the an iinai trotting meeting. The weather was One. the attendance excellent, and the amuseuieut of a satisfactory nature. These grouuds embrace fif teen and a half acres, and the half mile track is a creditable addition to the numerous race courses in tbe New lork circuit. The location Is pleasant, but somewhat inaccessible to the ordinary trav eller, as a long aud dusty vralk is acces sary alter leaving tbe horse cars before the grounds are reucbed. Once there, however, the visitor is amply repaid for his trouble, as the view from the stand, which is quite an imposing struc ture, includes a pleasing panorama of green fields, woode'd heights and the thickly populated west ern quarter of Jersey City. All the buildings and stables are roomy and said to be comfortable and couvenient for the purposes intended. The track isflity feet wide opposite the judges'stand and forty-five feet on the turns and stretches.

The Boston and Atlantic clubs played the fifth game of their championship series on the Union grounds, Brooklyn, E. D., yesterday. It proved to he an uninteresting affair. Error alter error of the most glaring type was made on both sides, until the contest degenerated into a farce. In the ninth and last inning the visitors enlivened the game a little by getting on a streak of heavy batting, three of their number?White, McVey and O'Ronrk?making clean home runs, while a total of j IT base hits was scored and 9 runs?4 earned? i were set down to their account.

Meeting of Austrian Kxporters and Man ufacturer*? Baron Schwarz-Seuborn'e Words. Fkankfobt-on-thb-Maiv, May 30, 1874. Baron Schvrarz-Senborn, the new Austrian Am bassador to Washington, expressed the wish some time ago to meet the prominent representatives or Austrian industry and commerce before he left Vienna for his post, in order to hear their views as to bow the Austrian exports to the United States could be increased and rendered more productive. We see by the yeue Prete i'msa of the 27th of May that this meeting has just taken place in the hall of the Lower Austrian Chamber ol Commerce at Vienna, at the instance of tlie President of the Austro-Hungarlnn Export Union, nnd was at teuued by several hmnlred manufacturers and merchants. The President of the Export Union, ilerr Wiinelm, opened the meeting, and spoke of tne assurances given In the Austrian consular re ports from the United .States, that there is a great ilela lor Austrian wares in America. A inaumacturer of surglca: instruments la mented that tne export in his brancii was serionslv hemmed by the Austrian exporters and wholesale dealers themselves, who persisted In securing ex ceedingly large percentages. A merchant in sil verwares expressed bis satisfaction that Baron Sohwarz should thus take the Interests or Austrian manufacturers to heart. He said that his firm did a good export business to the United states, espe cially in silverware with Russian enamel; but he lelt at a loss how to get to know the commercial standing of American firms. An exporter of Bo hemian glasswares lelt the necessity of first be coming acquainted with the cut aud forms or arti cles of luxury wanted in America. A fur dealer wanted Baron schwarz to secure a redaction oi American import untie* lor his ware*. A lurm ture manufacturer said that a large export busi ness was oone m lurmture oi bent wood and in ordinary styles. Another ex porter, rierr Kanitz, believed that Baron .Scliwarz could do Austrian commerce vast good in an in direct manner. He complained 01 tue exceed ingly high tariff on leather wares and gloves, the re.-ult 01 which has oeen tnat America herself is manufacturing tnese goods in the Vienna style. He wished that Baron bchwarz would use his in- I flueuce toward nringiug aoout a reduction ol the tunff, so that t ie Austrian manuiacturers could agHiu enter into competition witu Americans. He wished, HKcwi#e, better ability to recover com mercial claims. A wine exporter asked the Baron to iiirnish the enamour of Commerce witu facts ro.-pectvng the Fiencli export ot red wine to America, oelieviug mat Austrian wines could enter Into competition with them. A Leather nianuiac turer spoke of the Increase of ms exports to America since 1855. He now exported to the value or nearly t'JUO.oOO per year. Anotner merchant asked Baron Scliwarz to give them some iuiortna tion about the Philadelphia Exposition. Baron Bchwurz's Teply is given as lollows by the A'eue t'rtie Pronse:? baron scuwabz's reply. He first of alt said how tnat tne Austrian gov ernment had honored him ?ji uifsnnj him several important positions. He bad been offered the positiou of director of all tho State tobacco busi ness ("tradlcs"). but he had not accepted the post, because he did not understand anything about tnoacco. lie had accepted the post of Am bassador to the 1'mted Mates, knowing ttiat 111 this position he could Oe of service to Austria there. He did not intend, ot course, to erect import and export societies tnere, but he could assure tne Austrian mauuiaciurera nud merchants that he wo.um preserve the interests of Austrian manuiac turers to the tuiiest extent, as ne had earlier done in England and France. He could not change the American tariff policy, out he knew that a reiorm in the tariff was at hand. But, until this reiorm was au accomplished tact, he would do ins best to go* Austrian exporters and niutiu lacturers a heating. In regard to indebted ness. he aavised Austrian exporters, in case of i difficulties, to apply at once to the consulates. He would see that rlie consuls and the Commer cial Bureau of the Embassy took care ui Austrian interests. Karon bchwarz here took the oppor tunity oi expressing Ins regret that the Austrian Consuls in America were not in ail cases Austrian subjects and paid officers, in which case the Austrian* at home would have the right to demand tnat tneir interests i>e attended to. it was a great drawback that many ot the honorary Austrian Consuls knew nothing ol Austria or of her com mercial and industrial capacity. As soon as the session of Congress, should be closed lie wouid visit the twenty-two Austrian Consulates in per son anu inlonn them <>i the articles which Austria w anted to export. He would endeavor to make Austrian Industries and Austria herself better known in America. Though he could not erect sample bureaus, ne would, nevertheless, undertake 1 o forward sample books to the large Anierictin firms, and lie himscli would seud such sample books to the chambers of Commerce. Austrian ex ports amount at present to $&.o00,000 yearly. It would be his great aim to work lor the increase of this export, but he would beg or Austrian manu facturers, in the Interest oi tills export, to bring the price of the wares In harmony with the quality. In regard to the PHILADELPHIA EXPOStTION Baron SchWarz stud that lie was oniv in possession of private insinuation aoout it and had received no authentic dura, lie had spoken with Mr. Jay before the tatter's departure iot America, and had endeavored to Impress tntn with the necessity there of the Washington government giving lucilitle* lor transportation to the Exposition. Can- must likewise be taken by the authorities there that, in case of the bankruptcy of tne Exposition Committee tne objects exhibited be not confiscated by the creditors, lie wartniv tirg' <1 the Austrian manu lacturers to be represented ut Philadelphia, bul thereby to proceed always purely from tne commer cial point of view. ?uch is the report 1 tlnd lu the .Yens Freie Prtase. The President ot the Export Union remarked that never before had an ambassador placed himself so directly in communication with manuiacturers ani business tnen as had Baron Bchwarz. SEVERAL DE PEVSTER'S FIVERAL. A Burial In Trinity Churrltyurtl?The Rentnlns Hosting In n Vault of the hast Century. At, a quarter before four o'clock yesterday after noon a hearse passed down Broadway, followed by half a dozen carriages, the modest procession stopping in iron', ol Trinity church. AU oaken coffin was borne through the lolly central portal. At the same time a goodly number of citizens of both sexes entered the venerable eUtflct ov the two side doors, and lu a lew minutes the greater part of the pews was occupied by a collection ol wen dressed atid sedate people, in which was to be uotcd an extraordinary display ol whlto and gray head*. As tne clock chimed lor (our o'clock ] Mr. Mcssltcr, the organist, took inn utt hi iko ' chancel organ and played a eweet and solemn voluntary. This was the signal for the appear* ance or the pallbearers?ten snow-capped men, selected lrom the ranks of the old New Vomers to i minister the last offices of respect to General James F. De Pevster, the worthy representative of one ol rue most honored uames in the Knickerbocker directory, who alter lour score years oi useiul and esteemed liio In his native city was now brought for sepulture among the time worn tombs winch surround old Trinity. They came lrom the vestry room wearing the Umg wlnte aearis dedicated to luneral titer, walking by twos down the middle aisle to meet the cotllued dead, restaur in the vestibule; men whose uames nave beeu lor half ft century | well known in the Metropolis, viz.:? Hon. James W. | 1 Beekman. Adam Korrls, \\ llilam Alexander Mntth, i Professor Henry Drisler, Henry Dels field, Thomas W. ogaeu, William Kembie, Hubert Bayard, Peter | Goelet and John 0. Green. Behind tliem walked i ! the lamtly pynysician, I)r. John o. htoue. soon j i after tlie wliite-gowned choir bo.tsilied iron the I vestry and took iheir places within the chancel. [ They were lollowetl by the officiating clergy, Kev. i Benjamin Haight, Hev. Henry E. Montgomery, Kev. Thomas N. Peiers, Kev. s. G. Hitchcock, and lastly the tall venerable lorm of Kt. Kev. Horatio Potter, Bishop of New York. Forming in the re verse order of this enumeration, headed by the Bishop the procession moved up the aisle to the chancel steps, bearing the coffin, on which lay beautliul floral decorations in emblematic crosses, crowns, harps, wreaths, aucnors and stars of white flowers and pule tinted roses. As the procession moved slowly up the aisle the Impressive Durial service 01 the Cnurcn, commencing "I am the resurrection and the Hie," was read by Dr. liuignt. Alter the corpse was deposited at the chancel steps the cnoir chanted the luneral anthem noun the Tnirty-ninth and Ninetieth psalms. Dr. Haight read from the desk i he lesson 01 hope In the resurrection from Corinthians, beginning "Now is Gnrist risen irom the dead." bishop Potter then, standing by the coffin's side, repeated the solemn ritual commit ting the body oi the deceased brother to the ground, himself taking the typical mould in his hand and laying it u; ou the coffin ikj, vwlh the words, "Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust." Then the choir, unuer the direction of Mr. Messiter, chorister an 1 organist, sutig. with charm ing eilect, Dr. Cutler's noble burial service, - l heard a voice." The procession, headed by the sexton or Trinity and the singing boys, iollowed toy the ciergy. the pallbearers, the coffin and the mourning frienUs, slowly paced down the aisle to the time oi the >ad music, passing out at the north door and to the vault oi the Dc Peyster lamtly, which lies within the shadow of tne church and is covered by u red sandstone slab, with tins inscrip tion :? t" ~ "~]7~ p i'k ' vTr ^ 5 lifla. 5 Around this vault the congregation gathered with uncovered heads and listened to the conclu sion oi the luneral iitn.ii, uttered m tne tnin, shrill voice of the aged Bishop. At Us close, the coffin, which bore upou a silver plate these words:? Y JAMES F. DH PEYSTKK, T 5 Born Feb. J, 1*94, ; $ Died June 12, 1874. $ was placed within a metallic case and lowered into the aucieiit tomo to rest beside the caskets which lor more than a century have there inclosed the kindred dust of tne laniiiy. Mr. Brown, sexton or Grace church, had charge of the fiinertil arraugeinents, which were perlect in system ami simplicity. Among those who were noticed in the congregation were William B. lingers. Cambridge Livingstone, William Morris, Edward A. Kearney, Commodore Livingstone, United Staves Navy; Ex-Judge Peabody, Walter Wooa and Clement Livingstone. Mr. John F. De Pevster and Mr. Frederick Foster acted as chief mourneis. CLASSICAL VS. COMMON SCHOOLS. The Methodist Ministers on an Educated aud Uneducated Ministry?Theological Doctors Differ. An interesting discussion was held yesterday by the Methodist preachers at No. 805 Broadway. The subject under debate was substantially the pro priety of founding here, in or near Sew Y'ork, an institution akin to Dr. Tyng's House of Evangelists or Dr. Talmage's Lay College in Brooklyn. But it should have a larger Held and a wider soope than these, since It would be a denominational instltu tionand would probably draw its support from the whole Church, Dr. Curry, in an editorial in the Christian Advocate a lew weelcs ago, suggested that each a theological school Is among the greatest needs of the Chnrch to day. As this topic was adopted for discussion at the instance of Rev. W. McAllster he was requested to open debate on it. The necessity for such a school exists and the want arises from the fact that there is a great lack of ministers for the work of the Church?not only in the Methodist Episcopal Chnrch, but in all other denominations. The theo logical institutions that they have rati to give the Church ail the ministers it wants. This need Is not felt, of course, here in New York, but it is deeply felt in the West. And he would say, In the language of the venerable Horace, to candidates for the miulstry:?"Young man, go out West; you are needed there." Mr. McAllster illustrated THE DIFFICULTIES OF YOCNO MEN trying to enter theological schools as these are at present constituted. In bis own charge three young men were converted who felt that they were called to the ministry. One of them was twenty one years of age. He had an ordinary English edu cation. He was sent to Drew Semiuary, but before he could eutor the ministry he must go through a collegiate and theological course whicti would rake lain time years. The time and cost were more tnan he could give to this study and he turned away lu de-pair. He went to tue Aluldietowu University and the same duileulties stared him tu the iacs. He took .vlr. McAUster's advice and lureu private tutors who gave lum instruction at such times as were most convenient to him, und for which he could pay out of Ills weekly earnings. That young man is now preaching the Gospel with great suc cess tu rue New York East Conference, the other two who were younger are also tilling appoint ments uuder the Presiding Elder, aud are doing efllclent work. Now, what Is needed is an insti tution that shall give a young man all the Instruc tion tie needs to make a pivacner of htm lu two years and then send him out to wotK. lie goes to college and the drat thing that Is put into his hands Is mathematics?something that, as a minister of the Gospel, he is never likely to need. The next Hung is the poems of A LICENTIOUS HEATHEN AUTHOR, and he must go turougu these during a course of three or lour years. Meantime the ilible lies un touched on the shelves of the college library. The very thing that lie is expected to kuow something about does not enter into the curriculum of study. No wonder then that so many young tuen come out of college highly educated but thoroughly back slidden and uutli for the work to which they intend to devote their lives. Some young men are abso lutely injured by college training. He (McAllster) ulu not doubt but tnut Dr. carry would have been an American (Jarlyie (without Carlyle'a natural iiiuciiuau uuiijic piuium uuujien natural-, ism) had not Wesieyan University put clumps on Ids nead ami repressed his aspirations. He (the speaker) would nave young men study anatomy uud physiology and the laws of evidence?not merely evidences ol Christianity?but none of these are text books,in our colleges. Drs. Talmage and Tyng, Jr., have discovered tnat the old Metho dist way was God s way to lit men for the ministry, but Methodists are going back to the older wtiy wnlch leaves God out oi the account aud preiers Homer or Horace to Motes or l'aul. Dr. Curry, being called upon to speak, remarked that the Methodist Episcopal Church receives an nually 800 young ministers, and by and by it will receive l.ooo. The schools and seminaries give be tween one-eighth and one-quarter oi this number. 1 Drew gives about twenty: Bvunston, ind., live; Wesieyan University, ten or twelve, aud other scltools about illty. And with accessions Iroin other denominations ami from educated proie.s slons the NUMBER OF EDUCATED MINISTERS received every year is about 150. The remaining 850 are the product of our best class of Engllsa schools, some o: them going very low down. We have talked, said the D iClor, for a long tune about an educated ministry for tue Churcn. bat we nave made no progress towards it, 'The New York and New York East Coh erences have made very little pr< gross, and the colleges actually graduate fewer ministers now than they did teu years ago Led any one examine the minutes tor the last three or lour years ami U he can hnil and report a different story he will lift, said the Doctor, a great burden irom mi shoulders. The Doctor said he Had written evidence of lamentable ignorance in every rauk oi the ministry except bishop, and ? where it should not exist, in coilege-orcd men. Ann now. seeing that ihei'hurni tails hero, is there not, lie asked, some way ot bettering ourselves. Young men lu tuivm and cities, at liiteen or six teen, waut to get out ot scuool uud go Into busi ness. I lie conseiitMBce Is that this city gives lu proportion t" her population more to tne Mutho disi ministry than any equal number In any other part ol the Church territory. Hence we have lulled to grow id cities, it is well Known that, Methodism does uoi prosper here us m other places.

BOARD OP APPORTIONMENT) The Money Appropriation!?Still Harp* lng on Those Estimates?A Protracted Session ot Inactivity. For punctuality or meeting at the appointed hour the Board or Estimates and Apportionment la the model or legislative bodies, on Saturday, when this quartet adjourned, it was on motion tc meet again yesterday, at twelve o'clock noon. With the arrival or this hour came a swarm or re porters, each one with sharpened pencils and sharper ears, to chronicle duly tho deliberations ol the august assembly, thereby to inrorm the gener oua public ol the weighty transactions or the "Ap proprietors," whether the taxes ror the year shall remain at the high rate as established, or ba re duced a fraction or so. Besides the numerous press representatives, the most punctual one was the Comptroller. He oocu pied h*s accustomed seat, flanked by his Adjutant General, Richard Storrs. The Comptroller looked as placid as Saratoga Lake, ana tr he experi enced any heart beatings, a casual observer could oulv notice a coutractiou of his eyebrows. He, however, cast furtive glauces at the doorway whence his colleagues were to come Id. one o'clock, and uo second "approprlator" had put in an appearance. A moment after Mr. Samuel B. H. Vance, President of the Board o| Aldermen, arrived. Finally Mr. John Wheelei came in, walking through the portals or the Finance Department In his quick, elastic, business-like step, a huse bundle of documents under his arm and hat a la Greeley ou his head, and assumed his seat ou the right of Mr. Vance. Deviln, the Comptroller's Cerberus, opened the door wide for the members of tne Board, whereas he made "plebeians" barely squeeze through. For thirty-five minutes the three-quarter portion of the Board ol Estimate and Apportionment resolved It self Into a "mutual admiration society," scarcely uttering a word. Mr. Vance was careinlly perus ing some documents, while the Comptroller, who knows every requisition by heart, disdained from touching any oihctal paper. This inactivity and the non-arrival of the Mayor must finally have "harrowed up the soul" of Mr. Green, us he made a motion that Mr. Vance act as temporary chairman. .notion curried unanimously. Mr. Wheki.kh in a stent >rlan voice read the minutes of last Saturday's proceedings, which proved such a Waterloo lor New York's financial Bonaparte, which were duly ad >pted. Mr. Vance?I desire to offer the following resolu tion Resolved, That hereafter all meetings of this Board shall be convened upon notice of not less than forty-eignt hours, served personally tiDon each member of the Hoard, and that such notice sl.nll spegiry the business for the consideration of whtch-ine meeting Is convened, mid if for authority to Issue bonds, tnai n copy of tno re ?Iuisition of the department making application for snrh Issue, and a reference to the la? ? or or.linauce which authorize the issue, accompany the same. Mr. Green -T ie Mayor la not here and he may have some objection. ? Mr. Vance?This la' the Mayor's place, and ha should be Here if lie has any objection to make. The compi roller muttered something that was inaudible to the nearest reporter. Mr. Wheeler?Weil, lay it over till tho Mayor comes. Mr. Vance?Wiil he be here ? Mr. Green?He will be here. Mr. Vance (emphatically)?I ask If It is under stood that he will be uere. Mr. Green (positively)?It Is so understood, sir. Mr. Vance?Then lay it over till tne Mayor comes. Mr. Wheeler?I'd like to know whether ihs Mayor will come soon, send over lor mm again. Mr. Vance?I doubt whether he menus to come at all. Mr. Green?Then let us adjourn. The question 01 adjournment was pat and car ried unautmoudy. As soon as tne meeting adjonrnea a Herald re porter called on the Mayor to ascertain the cause of his absence from the session of the Board. He found ills Honor engaged in signing wa. rants and at the same time conversing with a handsome lady. A couple of candidates for hymenlal honors also entered with the reporter, who waited patiently lor the marriage ceremony to conclude. He then Interrogated the Mayor. Reporter?Mr. Mayor, your absence from the Board of Estimates aud Apportionment to-day was painfully felt. Your colleagues waited for you nearly two hours. Mayor Havemeyer?Well, 1 was very busy at twelve o'clock, and I expected a messenger to come for me at any moment; but no one came. reporter?Why. Mr. Mayor, it was understood that at least four persons were sent lor you by the Comptroller Mayor Havexetek (ringing a bell, which brought Ills doorkeeper) ?sharply?Has any one been hers to tell me that I was wanted at me Comptroller's office 1 (Tile d wrkeeper answered, emphatically, "No. sir.") You see 1 had no call, and on that ao count, thinking there was only routine business to be transacted, I did not go over. The deadlock continues, at least until next Monday, wnen, If the Mayor returns rrom his coun try trip, the estimates will be taken up. BOAED OF ASSISTANT ALDERMEN. A stated session of this Board was held yestef. day afternoon, the President, Mr. Joseph P. Struck, In the caair. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. A petition was received from citizens of the Twenty-third ward praying for the adoption of an ordinance prohibiting cattle running loose in the district. The petition was referred to the Commit tee on Health. An ordinance to prevent dust from dying while a building is being repaired or in pro cess of demolition by keeping the dSbrls wet, and for violating the ordinance exact a penalty of $10 for each offence, was called up by Assistant Alder man Thorneil and referred to the Committee on Health. Assistant Alderman Sommers offered a resolution authorizing and instructing the Corporation Coon* sei to take the necessary legal steps to have the following streets opened according to law:? Sixty-fourth street, Irom Third avenue to the East River. Slxty-flrth street, from Third avenue to the East Plver. sixty-sixth street, Irom avenue A to tile Eust Itlver.

Ninety-fourth street, from Third avenue to the East River. lhStli street, Irom third nvenue to Fifth avenue lnsth street, trom First avenue to Harlem Kiver. On motion the resolution was referred to tlM Committee on Law. Tne suuiect of the Permit Bureau, with the amendments made t?y tne Board oi Aldermen, directing the Corporation Attorney to discontinue all legal proceedings commenced lor violating the ordinance, was then taken up. Alderman Clancy moved to strike out the words "and ho la hereby directed," Ac., which gave rise to considerable de bate. Alderman Clancy openly said that by a sys tem of lobbying the ordinance relating to tne Per mit Bureau was amended by tacking on tne clause discontinuing all suits lor obstructing sidewalks io receiving and delivering goods. He moved to strike out, or, in otuer words, non-concur in the amendment of the Alderman. The motion ol Alderman Clancy was lost. considerable filibustering was Indulged la. Various motions being offered in succession the ordinance was finally referred to the Committee ou Law. The ordinance licensing steamboat runners, at amended last week by tno Hoard or Aldermen, in cluding "steamships anil rullroads," was con curred in. Alderman Morris'ordinance to estab lish a puollc pound in the Twenty-third ward waa lostiiiiU reconsidered. A number 01 vetoes irom the Mayor, returning several resolutions and ordinances for (lagging, curbing, Ac..several uotown streets, with tils ob jection-, were received and laid ovor. There being only fifteen members present, a number insufficient to pass general orders, the Hoard adjourned. POWERS OF THE NEW COURT HOUSE 00M. MISS10NERS.
