IRIC1S JOCKEY CM
Last Day of the Fall Racing Meeting. THOUSANDS IN ATTENDANCE. Parole tlie "Winner of tlie All-Aged Stakes. Bill Eruec, Princeton, Partnership and Reso lute also Victors. The Atuericau Jockey Club closed its rail mooting at Jerome Park yesterday, after a successful career ol seven day*. TUo day Itself was as beautiful as a poetic (I ran in, ami the sheen of the silks and the glo-s ol the to,vets worn by Ih# ladies wbo thronged llio i.lub House lilu 11 and tho grand stand bad its counterpart in the soft autumnal Octobor sun winch bung uter the leads ol all present, only slightly obscured by a filmy j .zo that separated sky from earth like a veil. I ho roads and avonues and streets that radiate irom the jeartol the great clly and tend to tho racecourse aero crowded yesterday by au incessant uuu seemingly ludlcss string of carriages, laud.iu-, do.- carte, phae .our, lour-IB-hands, bsrouches, broughams and light auuous. Those who rode ou top ol a lour lu-haud or in in open equipage founu tho sun's rays almost us ? arm as If it was a day in July, llut to combeusato lor .be heal ol tho hot noon came the splendor ol the ullage, which Oiled tho eye with the glowing nuts thu might bo gathered from ? couibluulion ol the coloring of Turner and Claude Lorraine. Kuasel and brown, gray allu blood crimson and orenge. purplo unil lemon hued, tho loltage ol the drooping trees hung by the roadside, as the thunder of reel of the horses went beating by. In many a showy and fashionable turnout cardinal rod streamers lloated from the shoulders of beautiful wonieu. wlioso checks were rosily flushed with tho excitetnont begotten by tbo Tervor of a race day. Kor where is It thut s woman looks as sho docs at a horse race, uultss that It bo in the full glow ol a ballroom, when music lends its sweet influence to brighteu the oye and suffuso tho cheek, which in the inoto i|ulct hours would pale sod shame the lily ? A race duy is always i?socialcd In the mind ol an epicure or one whose philosophy is easy with lobster' salad and the niutllcd pop of a champagne cork. Also la the race day linked and entwined with the picture which the road gives of tho best and noblest of all brutes, the horse, who brushes along In Instant rivalry with the other horse behind. Jeromo avenue has become picturesque, Irorn the boys who flanked Its sides with water p ills to the tearing quadruped, whoso sides are co\ erod with BWeat and foam, and by tho groups of ladles in the glow or the newest raiment, who may be lound seated on camD and easy chgire In Iront of pleasuni and embowered residences. Tho drive through the park and up the avenue to tho race ground, with bore and there the ?hade of a clump of oak, beech or towering poplar trees, makes one think ot a drive through an Kuglish laue, and the gathered assemblage of vehicles of every kind that tills the triangle below the graud stand need not shame comparison t with the swarm of like equip, age. at Longchamp. ot CUantilly. The cluo bouse grounds never looked more beautiful than they did yesterday; the green lurl wss as tresh as ll would be in June, and wns as soft to the trend as an Ax ni uislcr carpet, while Iho long driving dresse, of tho graceful women, Irom uuder whose trains peeped forth tho daintiest laces, gave to tho blutl and its green mossy surfaco a panoramic splendor as they tolled up tho esplanade. Silvery laughter and audible conversa Hon irom these groups rang out In the thin, sensuous air, and below them you might see tho jockeys cover ing the dusty turf on the back of some blooded bit ol horseflesh, whose limbs wero as cleanly cut and rounded as If chiselled IB marble by the hand ol A polios. The lour-ln-haud equipages that wero placed on the hillside made the foreground lively, and served to Oil up the picture, which had lor III setting a swarm of tbo ?> itoUoi on the bluff beyond the enclosure. There were IB this swarm 2,000 people at least, thickly packed together. Theso people on the bluff have, It is said, a private arrangement, by which they obtain the newa of a race result almost immediately alter it lias been decided. Two swift-fooled boys are employed by tho proprietor ol tho place of rclresbuicnt on tho blot! outside of the fence. One of these Is slatioued at the main gale, and he receives tbo communication from the other boy. the name ot the winning and second horse and the timo. Tho boy outside of the gate runs to the hotel on the blufl and a bulletin .. posted there immediately giving the record of what has just transpired. In this way it .? not necessary lor theso people to pay lor admission, a. they ran gel the new. and have a good view without putting their hands in pocket excepting to pay lor refreshment, hut it Is believed that In a low year, from now they wilt hays been sutllclcully educated up to the standard to pay their way in and take their seals among those who now Ull places on tho upper end of the grand stand.

The victory ol Prince ton was his maiden triumph, aud his owner thinks it wnl often he repeated. Tbu entered six tried conclusions In the Selling race, one mile and tnrso-quariers. Great demonstration was made at the box lu securing James A., who opened such u brat choice with tbo Lurillard adherent-, out siders were with difficulty able to placo a dollar upon him. A fewr, however, did not think so well of his Ox, and Gulway, with the lop weight, was liberally chosen as second choice. (>. J. Lnr>llard's Ambush, McDaniel's Sister of Mercy, 1.an,stall's Partnership and Doswell's Kappahannock liad iu.iny supporters, and disputed Ibe honors of the market each with the other. James A. sung small lu the contest, as his old lameness coining on ho wits never nrsr the head ol the column, and was nut piuced. Partnership secured the verdict by one Isngtli alter a pinching trial with Galway. This backhander caused many wry faces, aud the chnrge upon the pool box to recoup lu the uext event niaue the crush at that point something terrible. The curium dropped upon the sceno at the end of the bllh event, a handicap steeplectia.se. It caused the met ttug to go out lu a blaze oi glory and excitement, .-even jumpers were saddled, and they Hil started on the journey. Donahue s Deadhead, the winner of the other juinpiug events ol the meeting, was clung to by his mends and iu most uemaud. Lawrence .* Reso lute aud Uisk found several supporters, while .Sulclilfe's Mullet, Callahan's Bay ltuin, Babcock's OXiuure and Cuouer a scamp, the latter anew caudldaie, brought lu'r sums. A race with great Interest and plenty of inciduul ended with Resolute gamely winning by a short head. The warm ovation thul Midgely received from a thousand throats was sufUcient lor the efforts he had made to secure the result. Deadhead's alar was paled by Maney coming to griel In llio south lleld. 'the tune thai Donahue's lox hunting purty sang as they loll the course was decidedly not one Indicative of victory aud good luck. O.MC MILS AMI A* K1UUTU ? VKKS HANDICAP SWEEP STAKES.

The Race to Cape May Lightship and Return for the Loubat Cup. THE SCHOONER ATALANIA WINS. Light and Variable Wind* Throughout the Race. The yachting season Main to a conclusion yesterday with the finish of the race lor the Loubat Cup. It is s matter of regret that the AUlants and idler were the only two competitors for what 1b, without doubt, one of the handsomest pieces of plate ever offered as a prize in a yacht race, hut the lateness In the season prevented many yacht owners from entering their boats, as they had already laid them up for the winter. The result of the race astonished most yachtsmen, as they had made up thotr niluu that the Atalsnts was no mutch for the Idler, the heroine of to many aquatic triumphs. Probably, with the exception of Mr. Will iam Aslor, tlio owner, uud some low oi hia friends who wcro aware of the excellent tailing qualities of their yacht, the Atslanta had no friends that cborishod a hope of her coming out ahead. She certainly won the Kane regatta lust year, but that was hardly considered a lair test of her merits, and then her antagonist on this occasion owned a reputation for speed in all weather second to nono in the country. The race to Cape May and back, though not exactly a thorough trial ol the qualities oi the two yachts, cortaluly gives the Alalsota the right to a position In the front rank of our tlyors, and take her In a race or twenty miles to windward and return It would be hard to find any boat of her sue that would not be badly pushed to best her. Of course the Ata lanta was favored by the wind going down to llio Flvo Fathom Lightship but coming back both yacbta had about the samo breeze, and then sue appeared to mako the fastest time. Mr. Sumuol S. Colgate, the owner or the Idler, is naturally very much disappointed at tho result of the race, as he felt pretty confident of win ning, but next aeu^our he will probably be able to havo another trial over a course whero the speed of the two yachts will be tborougbly tried. Early tbls season Mr. Loabal seul a communication to the New York Yacbt Club offering a $1,000 cup fo be sailed for over the Cape May course under certain stipulations mentioned in the following circular New York Yacht Club. Oct. 2. 1873. The race for the Loubat Oceau Cup, for ictioouers, will be sailed on Thursday.

The siguals for starting will be given from the Jud.es'boat, as follows:?Fur a preparatory signal, one gun, and the club signal will be lowered; ten minutes later, fur the yachts to crass the line, the same signals will be repeated. No yacht's time will bo tnfceu alter the oxpiratlon of fifteen minutes froiu the second signals, uulass instructions to tbo contrary are given on the day of the race.

Tbe fact that the raco was to bo sailed with time al lowance Is said to liavo deterred some of the largo keel schooners from competing, bat considering that It was a race of about 228 miles, twelve seconds per ton did hot make much difference. TlIK RACK. On Thursday afternoon a number of gentlemen who were going to participate In the race for tbe Lonbat Cup left the city by tno two o'clock boat for Xtapletoc, Stolen Island. On arriving tbbre tne two competing yachts, tbe Idler and tho Atalanla, were tacking aoout, waiting for tho starting signal. lir. 8. M. Mills, accompanied bv Mr. G. L. Height, tbe chairman of the liegatta Committee, went on board his schooner yacht Vesta, which he had kindly placed at the dis posal of the Judges, uud getting under weigh stood across toward the Long Island sbore and let go ber anchor oil Owl's Head. It was a beuutilnl after noon. and although a trifle more wind would have been an Improvement, there wus a light southerly breeze that gave promise ol strengthening. In orilor to lose no time Mr. G. L. Haigbt gave others to fire tbe prepar atory signal, and at 3U. lom. 1*. M. a gun was fired that gavo the ruclng yachts ten tnuiutos to get reudy. They were both under main anil foresail, main clnb topsail, Jib, flying jib and JUi topsail. The second gunbvaa tired at 3h. 26tn., and then the yachta camo up toward tbe Imaginary Hue between tbe Vesta and Owl's Head. The Atalania was tue first to cross and made a "-each across to the Staten Island shore on the port tack. The idler followed two minutes later on the starboard lack, hugging tbe Long Island sbnro. Tho following is tbo time ol tbe yacbts as they crossed:? Timt yacht Name. Tonnage. H. M. S. Atslanta...Mr. Wtlltaru Astor 145.60 3 3d 30 Idler Mr. Samuel J.

As soou as tbo yachts had crossed the line Mr. Mills Weighed anchor, and the Vesta aceompaalod them a short distance outside tho Narrows. The wind was rather varluble, as on the Stated Island side it appeared to have a little westing, whilo oil Long island it was nearly southeast. Tho Alalanta made a short leg on the starboard, and thun stayed and headed again <or Siateu Island, fetching to the leeward of Fort Wadsworth. Mis then atreicbed acrosa toward Fort Latnyaite, hut the tide waa running llood, and alio only crossed the Idler's bow about 300 yards ahead. She tacked under tho Ice of Fort Hamil ton and niado a stretch hack, and only just succeeded In weathenug the Idler. On the next leg she again opened tbe gap, and going in aiaya headed well up toward (iravesend, troin whence she reached out in the bay. Returning on tho starboard tack tho Atalnnla crossed the "Idler's hows, the latter giinpg way; and when they came togciber again the Alalanta tacked under the* lee ot tbe Idler, as mo latter bad the right of way, and the pair run aloiigsido ol one another op to Murray'a Dock, when they went about, the Aim.una | off the" Idler's weather beam. Alter a short contest the Idler gradually eat up to windward and came out oil the Alalanta s weather bow. The Idler was well bandied and out m.ioucuvrod the Alalanta, which would probably have douo hettor lo pass unurr her steru thau to iuck under tier lec. The breeze was still steady, but appeared to ho hauling tnnro to iho west ward both yachts now headed toward Ibc Quarantine ship, and the Idler was doing good work, foreroacblng and going to wludward oi itio Alalanta Ol! Quarantine Island tbo Idler broke tacks and stood to tile eastward, the Alalanta still lyjldingou the port tack. Shu dually stayed olflbe Hospital ship, and making a stretch to ibo eastward crossed tho Idler's wake abo t a i|uarler of a mile astern. The sun was |U?t setting aud its golden rava were illuminating the autumnal utile 1 foliage ot ths woods on Stalun Island. The Alalanta tacked and followed alter the Idler, both yachts making a long leg on the port lack. On the next stretch they weathered tho Southwest Spit buoy, passing as lollows:? Idler 8h. uOin. Atuianta fib. 05m. They both then gave a little sheet, and the Alalanta set a staysail. They ran very quickly psst the point of the Hook, aud with sheets lifted made last liuio on their read to the lightship. The bight was rather chilly, and tho breeze appeared (o bo Irusbening every tnluulo. They ran down to tbe lightship wun their booms to port, and the Idler turned first about live minutes ubvad of the Alalanta. I lie yachts then psrt.it com pany, as tho Idler stayed aud stood in shore on tbe pert lack, and tbo Alalanta minuted In her sheets and headed oil southeast The breeze began to edga round to the westward, and in about three-quarters ol an hour the Aialatiln was laying her course aud akipplng along at a last gall. At midnight ltaineg.it was about south west Iroin tbo Alalanta, aud at lit. 30m. A. M. it boro west by north, the breeze then began to let up, and at 3b. I5tn. tbe AUIaulu sent up club loretopaall and balloon atayaail. The Ataluuin must have passed the Idler about 3h. A. M.,as the latter was then well In shore, near Little Kgg Harbor, with hardly any wind. At 4n. 05m A. M. Little Kgg Harbor bore west northwest, and presently the gloom ol night begun to pass away aud daylight com lug up disclosed the Idier anmo seven miles nitern ol ihc Atalauta. The breeze was then about west northwest, hut very light, and the Alalanta was making about two or throe knots an hour, ruuuing a ? oupio of points tree. At tlrst t'ta Idler appeared to be closing up tho gap as hor hull became in ore appa rent, but ntler an hour or so she wcut back, hull down. I Aidli. 06m. A. M.

Tbe morn ing was nrlglit aud pleasant, wun a pretty hot sun making It more like an August than an October day. At 8h. 30m. ibo breeze began to die. and the Alalanta sent up n balloon staysail and set a balloou Jib. Tbo idler was still some six or seven miles astern, evi dent'y not mticb bettor oil in the Way of wind. Tho sen was us smooth as a mill pond, and there was Just sufficient breeze to givo steerage way. At 9h 43m. the lookout on the Alalanta sighted the Five Fuiuatn lightship. For the next two hours there was a light tanning hrcaze from tho westward and about 1 lh. A. M. it hauled round to the northw nrd. The Alalanta winged out. but it did not do hiT much good as the wiud died away entirely. For the next hall hour ihero were lut e catspawa of air coming front all directions and dually a light breeze settled down from south southwest. The Atalania tbon trimmed down on the wind uud alter tanking around lor about an hour and a hall rounded the Fivo Fathom lightship at lh. 37tn. P.

The sky was overca-t with tulck. heavy cloud, which threatened rain, and a strong wind blew steadily up the lake, ruffling it. waters into wave, of disagreeable sue and sweeping the Point with distinctive earnestness. The scene, however, wa. no without some redeeming features. The autumnal frosts had converted the foliage of the surrounding bills into brilliant hue. of purple and gold, and the bright garments sad animated laces of the ladies lent additional charms. The shore, ol the lake were dotted with epoctators the whole length of the course, and there was much speculation as to the prob .ble results.
