Ibis enactment was paused April IS, 1859. II had no retroactive effect, but the Commissioners proceeded to net upon it as ii this had been tho law from 1857. and, without any reference to the lact whether tlie.v nad In curred any personal expenses or not in visiting and super intending the works, each Coiiunlssioiier commenced to draw at the rate ot S'li u us from the date ot tho original enactment ol 1*57, an I these payments were continued down to ttie close ot the period second above specified (April 26. 1870). and Included payments lor the period first above speciiled. commencing April 17.

The Favorites Beaten in Four Events. FIVE INTERESTING- RACES. Survivor, Madge, Aaron Pennington, Scratch and Galway the Winners. The slxtn day's racing at Jerome-Pare of the spring meeting or tbe American Jockey Cinb was not very largely attended, but was or more than ordinary interest, aa the lavorttes were beaten m ! every race save one. There is a peculiarly intense antagonism between the general public and the "knowing ones" at Jerome Park and at every other course. "Straight tips" are given grudg ingly to the pro/anum vulytis, and results like those of yesterday are apt to produce a Donny- ? ' brook effect on the average mind. The weather was entirely propitious, the threatened thunder * storm toward the close of the races fortunately passing uway In the welcome guise or a refresh ing chower that old more to lav the dust than ever the obdurate l'ark Commissioners will con sent to effect on the track und road irotn New York. The sun that blazed in undlmmed power from a bine sky on Tuesday last was yesterday obscured by cloudy and the east wind lannea the laces or the visitors to i Jerome Pars, via Central Park* with a grate 1 ml and soothing effect. Many aquatic ! representatives were on Harlem Klver, exhibiting i brawn ana sinew snch as only the exercise or the i oar can produce; miniature yacnts contended for i mastery on the vrrlous lakes of the Part; mounted policemen on the Boulevards enileav | ored to emulate the performances of ;he crack i riders of the circus by interviewing the driver of ; a last team slaeways, horse on hind legs; the , t>luff at Ream's, outside the course, was alive with people; last trotters resented the interrup tion or the surlv gatekeeper; unp'easant looking darkeys screamed out ilielr numbers to the visi tor and Inquisitive eves peered at every badiro aud face, as If the visitor were an intruder. The (iraiu Mann was partially filled, but around the pool stands was a seething mass of humanity? eager, anxious and excited, ihere was little of tnougnt among tnem oi ttie beiuty oi tiie scene? ia? Park (rained in nature's nrlgntost colors. Tiiey thonghr, oni* ot the chances of the race, and the click of tne recorder oi tlie Pans mutueis was the sweetest music to their ears. Pencils and programmes were in every hand, and eager eyes lo iked lor "straight tips," Then the bell sounded lor the last time, and the monotonous voice oi tne pool seller c*used. A rush to the Gruua Stand, a scramble for a good place, a cry ?M lioy're off," a clsud ot dust, a glimmer opsun stuns on the reeking a'des oi the contettants, discordant shonts as the result is reachcd and a ringing shout when the lavorite 1s beaten, then then; is a deafening patter oi teet aa the eager lookers on rush to the pools attain from the Grand Stand. The victory won by Mctiiath's Aaron Pen nington ia the rac* lor the Wood burn stakes was hailed with ueilaht by tbe "outsiders,** who.went I ia aunlnst Keiorm- some said that Heiorm in New York to long i'go plaved out. They made a remark about Bullet's deieat to the effeot that he , had not beeu named at Creedmoor, and about Shy iocs that he could not get his pound of flesh tins time, on Saturday this very inrerestlag and i attractive meeting ot the American Jockey Club wni be brought to a close. Tin; RACING. The track was In very fair condition, although not fast. Toe weather was most suitable lor racing, the horses always running best wnen a bright sun Is shiniug over them. Five races were run, and they all gave satisfaction to the specta tors.
