located in the vicinity of the city could be countad
upou the fingers' end*. The fleet of bout* be.
longing to theae organizations was also very
limited. To-day, l.owever, owing to ?hc Im
petus given to Doatlng, through the ex
ample of the inter-collegiate conte-ts and
from the support and <-ncnu agement that Is
given to it by all the ablest of our public teachers,
as well as from the heads of families and others
having the welfare of the rising generation at
heart, this flset lias attained proportions but little
dreamed of when boating was In Its infancy.
Tnen it was thought a great thing if a club pos
such as a scuiilug boat, a four-oared trig and a
four-oared barge. Now, every man who aspires
to become a sculler is not satlsfled unless he
owns bis own craft, while at the same time each
club of any pretension whatever has in Its
house two or three of each kind of crait neces
sary to Insure a fair amount of practice to lta
The season this year, en account of the extraor
dinary long and rigorous winter, cannot even
yet be said to have fairly opened, but already
here are to be seen oat on the river every line
afternoon a goodly number of men indulging In a
spin Just to rnb off the rust gathered during the
idle months, for the most part, however, these
are the men who are hoping to carry off some or
the honors at the different regattas which will I
take place during the summ r. and who are un
willing to lose the smallest chance of getting Into
the moat periect condition. As the days draw oat
end the sun gains greater power the fleet will,
doubtleas. dally Increase.
From present indications and irons all the Infor
mation tbat can be gathered there is every rea
son to conclude that the summer of 1875 will be a
brilll intone so far as boatiug is concerned. The
various clubs are now putting tneir houses in
order and reflttlag and fixing up their "atilps."
Toe boat builders, too. are as busy as they can be
on orders received lor new craft. Home of the
clubs ure cetttotr tnelr crews together that are to
carry tue club colors at tne regattas to be held on
tne Harlem aud schuyiklll rivers anu at Troy. The
men lorming cr who expect to form one <>i these
crews are already in lair condition, having been
steadily at work in the gymnasiums throughout

next vear during the Centennial ceieoration at

ing ttie next few montni. and in fact np to the
cioa.ug time, they should develop ail their
strength in order to determine upon the most
promising material from which io
whom they can send to compete, with a hope of
success, lu some of the contests wim tne ccosen

yesterday. The participant* in tlie content were

o'clock snarp. The distances shut Irnm, nature of
the ritt-8 and ammunition and a ?o the number of
rounds discharged by each competitor wore the
tame as those used upon former occasions, winch
have been already published. Tne fore part or the
day was more lavorablo to good practioa than
Friday. The light was more subdued und mellow,
but clear and dlstinc'. Tne hlnli nvinjf clouds that
scudded across the heavens, while preventing cr
rors which are liable to arise from '.he refraction
consequent upon a glaring sunshine, llirewsuch
a suodued tone of light over the targets und
ranges as showed these cxaotl* in their natural
position a'id colors. The wlud, too, was more la
vorable to good practice than on Friday. Acsier
dar it blew gently irom the southeast, veeiltig
sometimes a lew points toward the Boutu or ensr,
kud llnally settled down nearly due smth. Alter
two o'clock, when the contestants bad nearly
finished at tne 900 yards lange. it beuau to
rain, and continued we' at Interval* daring the
remainder of Mie competition. This untoward
circumstance spoiled a number of good scoies,
amotitf them being those of General Dakiu und

pre erring not to shoot In the rain, especially
when there wus no great need for their doing so,
a- they staud oh their last year's record.
It ts right to state that some murmurs of dissat
isfaction have been heard ajtalnst the method
adopted wheretiy the gentlemen formiu.T 'lie
American team last year tveio allowed to stand j
upon their four splendid scores made la that sea- j
son s contests, ending with ttio Bennett match.
|i is thought that this (rives fltem a double chance
over other competitors, in tue first place, when ?
the scores upon which these gentlemen now stand
were made, ilie weather was nincli more favorable
man at present, and It was at the cio.se of a wnole
season's practice, of wnien they had the oeueilt.
Theu again. II anv fortunate marksmen should i
heat ttie.r last veai's rccord these gentlemen have !
mill the privilege ?>f cnulleuiiiii[r one or more 01 tlie
lnuriopu.g victors to a new inul ol ?icili, which
would finally determine the contest as octwceri
such parties From the present aspect of tne
contest u is not. likely that any of the old team
will sutler a challenge on account ol their last ?
year's scores being beaten by some outsider, lor
there are hardly any new men worth while coii- ]
sldeiing as possible opponents of the team of 1374.
Vhere is mi doubt but that the urruuaouienr* and
rules lor the contest this year were made with the j
best intentions and with a view to the greatest
noHslole lairm-ss; (till It is right that any cause |
of complaiui, euuer real or mucieu, should have a .
