MUNTPEL1EB.VT. WEDNESDAY, JULY 2. 1879. tioue Home. Congress, what was left of It, got through iU extra session yesterday. Hard ly a q'loruiu was left in either house and that hud been the case for a number of days before adjournment. On Monday the president sent in his fifth veto, that of tho " little judioial bill." and the democrats concluded they would not try to do anything more with it, so Ibey have adjourned. The result of the nearly four months' puw-wow is that necessary appropriations have been made for nil departments of the government except the marshals of the United States courts. Of course there is a good deal of business that will be Inter fered with by this failure to grant money to carry out existing laws. But considering what wm advertised nt tho beginning of the extra session the mouse brought forth by the laboring mounUin is a very diminutive one. There came near being legislation in financial mattois that would have disturbed business matters probably. But fortun-uely Bayard and some of the eastern democrats in the Senate took a very positive position and prevented tinkering with the currency. The session has given no groat honor to either party but has in a blundering sort of way served to unite the republican pirty. This has been dono in spito of the fact that the last month's fight h is been over technical matters that divided the re publicans themselves. The democrats on the othi;r hand do not feel as well as when they began their performance in the spring. A great portion of tho party thinks it has " backed down," and there is a very pretty dispute in its own ranks over that very point. Then the silver question has stirred np much bitter feling between the eastern and western members. Taken as a whole the extra session has been a farce of gigantic proportions and it is a matter of rejoicing that it lias closed. California. There is a very sharp canvass under way for the September election when state officers and congress men are to be elected. There are two divisions of the workingmcn's party one of which nominated a ticket last week. It is yet a question whether the democrats will not adopt the nominee of this con vention as their candidate for governor. Maine. The republic ins have nominat ed D. F. Davis of Corinth.for governor. He was a private and corporal in a Maine regiment and is a young man who has worked his own way up from poor circum stances to his present position. He had not been talked of as a candidate before tho convention. There will he a verj lively cauippign and the voters will divide mainly between the republican and green tuck tickets. Tho democratic party is pretty much gone nnd expects to cast only a few thousand votes. Cox, the murderer of Mrs. Hull, has been indicted in New York City. Tho Fall llivor strike does not as yet make much progress and tiie manufactur ers aro succeeding very well in getting help. I-illie Crane, tho female member of the last c'ass at tho university of Vermont in Burlington, led all hor classmates in schol arship. Parker B. Cady, seventeen years of age, of Waitslield, has been arrested and held to nnswer for lascivious conduct towards several very young girls in that village. ' The demand for railroad iron during the last ninety days is said to be unprecedent ed. There is not a mill in the country in operation that is not full of orders for iron rails. Kev. J. j. Harrington, acting pastor of the Congregational church at Orange, has accepted a call from the chun h in East Dorset. He will close his labors at Orange the 1st of July. The latest slate of the New York demo crats is the ro-nomination of. the old board of state officers, with tho name of Clark son N. Potter in place of Lieutenant Governor Dorsheimer. The following patbnU have recently been issued to Vermonters : J. Desjardins of Burlington, windmills; W. W. Kotlg, crs, Hartford, butter packages: B. Bohan- en. West Fairlee, leather-cutting pouches. The first sample of new flonr ground from Missouri No. 1 whlto wheat was ex hibited at the Now York produce ex change, June 21st. The flour dealers were enthusiastic in their praise of its condition and quality. A rather uncommon caso is that of John Leech of E ist R-iport, who lias been com mitted to j lil for contempt of probate coa t in rofuiing to obey tho order of the ojurt to piy over $30 u month from his father's estate to the widow. Mrs. J. S. Curlier of Norwich, recently m iking tea for dinner, poured some boil ing water uoon her hand. She bound it up in common cooking soda, and in a few minutes after it was as well as ever, no trace of the scald being left. The trial of Riohard E. Peabody at St, Johnsbury for forgery closed last week. It took eight days and the jury wore out eight hours, when thoy came in with a verdict of gnilty. His counsel took ex ceptions, and Peabody is out on $6000 bail. Timothy Vinton, an old anil respected citizon of Brattleboro, fell from his office door in the paper mill recontly, nnd, striking on a stone, fractured his skull. His recovery is hoped for, however. He is one of the oldest and most prominent Odd Fellows in the state. Thore was a foot race on tho trotting park at Lyndunville, the oitior evening, in which ton parsons started for a walk or a run of one hour. They all made five and one-half miles or more. Wesley Fisher made the greatest distance, namely, eight miles in one hour and ten seconds. Foughkeepsie isn't behaving very well, and ought to be ashamed of herself. A colored young lady, graduate of one of tho high schools there, wasn't allowed nny part in the commencement exercises, simply because she was colored. Not a ' very bright thing for Poughkeepsie to do. It has become gonerally acknowledged that President Hayes has opinions of his own, and cannot be deterred from acting upon thorn by either democrats or repob liaans. The Herald is about correct when it remarks that, of all our prominent pub lio men, he has gathered in tho most Jaurols from the extra session. One of the features of the season at Lake George will be the Vassar college boat race. O. M. Fisher, bas been fined five dollars and costs for an assault on J. S. Clark, of St. Johnsbury. In spite of the hot haste with which some northern democratic papers denied that Dr. Luke P. Blackburn, the demo cratic candidate for governor of Kentucky, was the man that undertook to spread yellow fever and small px in the Union army and northern cities, the Cincinnati Gazette says he persistently refuses to tell bet her he is that same Luke P. Blackburn or not. Religious Gifts The late Abel Stearns of Hlghgnte left $3,000 to the Methodist church in that place for the support of preaching. Rev. E. J. Comings of Kmgs ville, Ohio, has given the Congregational church at East Berkshire eleven acres of land, situated in Higbgate. The avails of this land are to be used for the support of the gospel so long as evangelical preach ing shall be sustained. In case this should bo discontinued, the property goes to the Vermont Domestic Missionary Society. The annual meeting of the Vermont press association will be held in Rutland, July 8th and 9th, The annual excursion will be from that ulaco to New York, and Brighton Beach, Coney Island. The de tails for the accommodation of all are completed for the comfort and convenience of every one. The palace steamer "Sara tog:!," of the citizens' line has been secur ed entire for this event from Troy to New York. A special breakfast for all at tho unsurpassed St. Nicholas hotel, at a special rale, nnd afterwards the trip to Misy Ridge by the steamer D. R. Marvin; special conveyance from the hotel to tho steamer at the foot of Whitehall street, from Bay Ridge by rail to Brighton Beach, Coney Island. The Troy Times says that another swin dle in which rural residents are made the victims, is for agents for the sale of a phos- phato purporting to be manufactured at Troy, to make a contract for the sale of the article with a farmer, thereby getting his name. A quantity of the phosphate is purchased of a regular agent at some ad jacent town and delivered, and a receipt taken. The contract turns out to be a note and tho receipt is held to verify the genuineness of the note. The time will doubtless como when farmers will make their pjrehases of people they know are regular dealers, and sign no paper for strangers. Until they exeroise such care in their business transactions they must expect to be swindled. American Institute of Instruction. -The annual meeting of this association at Fabyan's, White Mountains, July 8tb, 9th, 10th and 11th, affords a rare oppor tunity to nil who wish to see tho wonders of the mountains, at a moderate expense. The railroads and hotels oiler low rates to all, whether teachers or not, on condition of payment of one dollar to the treasurer of the association nt the meeting. All such will receive certificates of member ship which will secure such reduoed rates. The Central Vermont railroad will take passengers nt half rates, and the mountain hotels will entertain ladies for $1.00 to $1.50, nnd gentlemen for $1.00 to $2.50 per day. Railroad tickets are good to about August 1st. In Liberty oounty, Ga., Guitano Rodri- quez was several years n;o bitten by a lanni tiog. ino evil consequence snowed itself until a few days ago, when he was slung by a large spider on the forehead. the sling seemed to kindle the old virus in his system, and brought on fearful con vulsions, accompanied by all the symp toms ol nyuiopnouia. The Memphis (Tenn.) grand jury made an unexpected visit the other day to tho countv workhouse on President's island. live miles below tho cilv, and discovered a disgraceful and inhuman condition of nil airs. I ho prisoners quarters were indescribably filthy; the sick lay uncared for in dirt and vermin; scanty and revolt ing food was provided, ami the actual day's work was fourteen hours long. The terms of prisoners were detained several weeks afer their sentences had expired. This revolting treatment lias been in vogue for some time, but hitherto the jury has announced in advance when it would visit the workhouse, and everything has been cleaned up for the occasion. ' We want our people to know that many northern democrats deserted our interests when the quarantine bill was considered, and that this valuable measure was secured to the south through the efforts of Gen. Garfield, Mr. Blaine and oilier republicans. We are grateful to the northern republicans who thus aided Os.as we aro to the northern people who saved our people, tho people of Port Gibson with the rest, last season from untold suffering by their magnificent charity. We have not had much cause lo think the northern democrats li'tely, and if the south is to be made tho cat's paw to pull out their presidential chestnuts, we have a right to demand better treatment than some of them gave us in their votes on the quirantine bill." Vicksburg (Miss.) Jlcraid. The Washington Republican has been forcasting the probable number and allot ment of representatives in congress under the next apportionment. Estimating the population oftho country in 1X80 at 4G,SOO,U0O. it estimates the icpiesenta Ives at 8IK). The (southern slates, it thinks, will lose 7 while the northern slates will gain 21, making a not gain of 14; Texas and Missouri will each gain 3. while the other southern states will lose 12; Assum ing that the number of representatives will be S0O, the Uepubtican assigns 213 representatives to the northern slaies and 87 to the southern states. According to this estimate, the stiength of the northern states in the electoral college will lie 257, while that of the southern states will be only 119. Iowa and Kansas will gain 4 representatives each. Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota 3 each, Nebraska 2. Wiscon sin one. One reason why southern uolili- cians are bo exorcised over tho negro exouus is its direct bearing on the repre sentation of the section in congress and in the electoral college. Shortly after the olose of the war, when New York state thought seriously of en larging the Erie canal to rival the Welland canal, it was proposed instead to build a ship railroad, large enough to take any but the largest mean steamers, from Mrue point on tho Hudson river to Dike Erie. The plans and drawings then made show ed the schemo to bo feasible, and its cost was not in excess of the cost of construct ing a ship canal large enough lo take ves-els of tho same size. James B. En Is comes forward now with the proposition lo build a ship railroad instead of a ship oanai aoross ine isinmns oi ranama. Jt is a perfectly feasible thing to lift a loaded ship out oi the wator and set it on a truck, and such a truck provided with two hun dred whoels could be drawn nt a speed of eight miles an hour, according to Mr. Eads's .calculation, or at a less oost and greater S)ieed than n oanal oonld be built and the Bhip towed through that. Admi ral Am men, who represented this country nt the Intor oceanic ship congress, in Paris, is preparing his report on the con gress, in which he will endeavor to show that the real Interests of the project were smothered by the devices of speculators, Anniversary at tioddard Seminary. On Tuesday evening came the price speaking, tha oontastaats having been chosen from classes 7i and '80 by the teachers, and tact) class to bar one of the prizes, which prizes ire offered by the alumni association. Not only the chapel but the whole of the upper story of the seminary was liter ally packed with people. At the appointed time Miss Julia Stan ton executed very finely a piano solo, after which Rev. Mr. SpifTord offered prayer, followed by a song by Miss Georgia Smith. The exercises were well commenced by Alston XV. Dana of Mechanicsville, with Unjust National Acquisition;" when Blanche J. Tilden of Barre gave " The Dying Alchemist. Her rendition showed much natural ability and good drill, but we fear was a little low lo be appreciated by all. Will A. Holden of Middlesex chose Tho Modern Cain." This is a good se lection, and was well given, though thf speaker did not quite appreciate the tragic relations existing belwnen those desoiibed. Misses Goodwin and Hollister pupils of Miss Ellen Nye rendered a piano duel with a high degree of excellence. Julia A. Richardson of Washington with " McL line's Chill " deserved, we thought, the highest honors. This is a tragical piece, and bard to render, but sin proved herself able to adapt herself to each of the different varieties of feeling indicated. Walter II. Vincent of East Montpelier took " Regulus to the Carthaginians," a long selection, but creditably given. Deserving of special notice was Cora A. Shaw's reciting of that pretty yet sail poem, " Dora." Miss Cora happily pos sesses a remarkably sweet voice, and on. that can be heard by a large audience too Miss Georgia Smith now favored ui with a piano solo, followed by Charles J. Hubbard, of Montpelier, who declalniec "Mark Antony to the People, on CwnrV Death." This was given in a peculiai manner and pleased those who appreciate his style. He was loudly applauded. Fleda A. Gladding, of PlaiufielJ, acquit ted herself creditably with " Mother and Poet," a hard but not pleasing piece. It we were to criticise anything It would b. her choice in selection and not her mannei of rendering. After a piano solo by XV. A. Wheaton, shown by his pupils to be such an excellen music teacher, Rev. Mr. Spafi'ord dismiss ed the audience with the benediction. Rev. J. Edward Wright, of Montpelier, Prof. N. P. Wood, of South Woodstock and Prof. A. N. Wheelock, of Barre Acad emy, as judges, after a long deliberation awarded prizes first to Hubbard, second to Miss Gladding. During the lime we were in the chapel the Mrs. Coffey and Fales, of the Bislioi. House, Montpelier, were engaged in load ing the dining room tables with nil man ner of tempting eatables, whither now the alumni with their friends repaired. After doing partial justice to the opportunity foi feasting, we were reminded by James E. Riley, A. B., that toasts are appropriati on such occasious, after which he offered the following, which received hearty re .sponses : Goddard Seminary, our Alma Mater s place of intellectual and moral advance ment. Responded to by Prof. Henry Priest. ' The educational insti utions of New England moulders of American thought. Responded to by Prof. N. P. Wood. The academies and seminaries of Ver mont educators of Vermont ladies and gentlemen. Responded U by Prof. A. N- Wheelock. Thu teachers of Goddard Seminary competent, diligent, faithful'. Responded to by Miis l'ersis Thompson. The alumni of Goddard Seminary. Responded to by Dr. E. W. Braley. The press our universal text book. Responded to by a member of the press. The friends anil benefactors of Goddard Seminary united, generous, cordial. Responded to by C. B. Towers nnd James E. Riley. Every one seemed determined to take advantage of the opportunity offered for having a thoroughly good time. Wednesday was commencement day, and at an early hour last night's orowd, largely ro-enforced, began putting in an appearance. The chapel walls were beau tifully decorated withevergreens.arranged in fantastio shapes, together with wreaths, pictures and hanging baskets, while the windows were full of pots and vases of living flowers, filling the air with sweet perfumes. Over the stage an evergreen cross, trimmed with delioate white blos soms, was suspended; under this was placed the motto, "Operaj pretium est,'' with " '79 " and a Handsome wreath from the same material as the cross beneath. At fifteen minutes past 10 Class Mar shal Murray came in with the graduates, and excellent music was discoursed by Wheaton, pianist; Waterman, violin; Moore, cornet; anil Merrill, bass viol These gentlemen furnished the L'musio for the occasion much to the enjoyment of the audience. After prayer by Rev. Henry Blanehard of Worcester, Mass., and " Immortellen, (Waliii-8,) Horace H, Hollister, salutato rian, with " Ch iricter," expressed him self well concerning the necessity of hav ing a good character, and hinted nt many aids to its formation. He made a good impression upon his hearers. " Differences of Things '' was the sub- jeot of a lively essay, read in an ex ceedingly pleasing ruinnor by Corn J. Richardson of Washington. Burton L. G lie of South Birre orated upon " Alexander Hamilton." We were treated lo a rehash of some of Hamilton's good deeds, and were pleased to note Bur, ton's high appreciation for the untold worth to us of his wise measures. Lucie G. Calef of nonry, III., taking " Anthraoile," told us many interesting things concerning the earth's formation. After another piece of musio, " Salon," (Masurka,) George E. Hollister showed how the eduoated man enjoys this life more perfeotly than the ignorant, but be lief in a knowledge of the future is a source of greater happiness. " The Pleas ures of Knowledge " was bis subject. The class poem, subject, " To Day," rend by Eva T. Skinner of Plainfield, showed considerable poetical ability on tbe part of ibe oomposer and was well read. " The Utility of Mathematics " was the subject of a thoronghiy practical oration. by Ernest M. Morse of Franklin, Mass. Besides acquiring a knowledge of facts useful in ivory day life, he thinks no study is better adapted for cultivating the mind than the study of mathematics. Mdsic, " Nanoy Lee." (Medley). Julia A. Richardson of Washington favored us with ber presence on tha stage again to-day; this time with "Class Chronicles and Prophecies." These were of more than usual merit at to composi tion, and then were so nioely read that tbey were threbly appreciated. The Power of Intelleot" both a now- erful and intellectual subject was treated by Nathan Currier of Enfield, N. H. His vivid imagination and nervous, rather elo quent delivery made this one of the most agreeable things of the day. About " Literature," E nm F. Morse of Franklin, Mass., presented some good thoughts. Her illustrating that a library is a world in itself was One. In the library Will be found old books of chivalry, fresh ones of modern history, while others treat of scientific research throughout the uni versemaking the world in the book case. Although many -young orators think How Smart Are We " here in America? yet Charles J. Hubbard of Montpelier minks the United States does not Comprise this entire inhabitable globe, nnd mere lias been some little lime of importance previous to tbe present age also. Blanche J. Tilden of Barre showed her self "Mistress" of her situation with ' Masters " as her subject. She finally wrought us np to the idea that if we are masters of our own positions, and espe cially of ourselves, it will be useless to took for greater. Will A. Ilolden, of Middlesex, gave tbe valedictory, taking for the subject "Free- lorn. His talk to Prof. Sliipman, presi dent of the trustees, to Prof. Priest and lo each of the other teachers and officers, recounted many kind acts for which the class would express its most heartfelt thanks, and the members as ihey went away from their Alma Mater would ever be remembered as friends. While he reminded his classmates that their happy sojourn together bad reached its bounds. that their paths must now separate, per haps never again to cross in time, that to morrow hand would unclasp band, per haps forever, tbe tearful eyes indicated bat many h ippy associations would now be broken up, and not without regrets. Stepping on to the stage, the class, with a few well-chosen words, was commended by Prof. Priest to the president of the I'u-tees, who presented tbe diplomas, bap- ng tbe good work performed by tho class here would only be an index of its mem bers prosperity hereafter. . The class formed around the piano and sang together the class hymn, composed by Eva T. Skinner, and set to " Malvern," ilier which tho audience ,Was dismissed wilb the benediction. Your reporter would not have it thoii"ht that he considers these exciciscs beyond ciiticism, but it is only justness to say ihat the productions showed themselves to be i he retults of hard, earnest labor in writ ing, and in preparing to deliver on tin part of both teacher ami student. Tin exercises were highly complimented by ill whose opinion we beard and we judge the class of."'"9" did its sharo toward keeping up Goddard's already good name. Bouquets nnd wreaths, the very handsom est, and lots of them, were sent forward by their friends to the speakers. Tho ladies dresses were of white muslin and were sensibly gotten up, with simplic ity, taste and prettiness in view.more than with something to make uncalled-for show nnd to attract especial attention. In the afternoon the band furnished musio, and lifter prayer by Rov J. Edward Wright, Prof. Sliipman introduced a iriertd and relative of the Goddard family, Rev. Henry Blanehard of Worcester, Mass., who for nearly an hour held the closest attention of bis hearers. A good subject On the Study of History was made doubly interesting by his easy, sim ple manner of la'knig to the audience. He took the ground nor did be fail in making it appear that he was right that more elements of culture are acquired by pursuing historical study than by any oilier lie maintained and it will not be neecs- sary to give his illustrations that it may he conceded that tbe ability to rivet the at- ention could he nowhere else better no- quired ; tho memory is strengthened, the imagination is cultivated so wo can see the picture as the writer sees it; we are brought into a knowledge of noble life; we come to know the thoughts of men as well hs their deeds ; best of all, the cul mination of the culture derived from tho study is Christianity ; it proves Ihat there is a Supreme Powor of goodness over-ruling all ; that the world is advancing and not retrograding; that there is a Spiritual Power determining I he events of men. After the nddress Charles J. Hubbard read the poem entitled, "Endeavor the Root of Worth." This was Mr. Hubbard's third appearance during the week, and we began to feel somewbit acquainted wiih him, and expected 'somolliini good, nor were we in the least disappointed. ' Willi the bedediction the audience dis persed. In the evening the usual reception of teachers and class was held, closing the week's highly enjoyable' enteriainmont. and, in fact, another year's profitable work at Goddard seminary. Cox, Mrs. Hull's murderer, is as far as possible removed from the averag! con ception of a murderer, and appears to unite the stolidity of bis Indian -ancestry and the flippancy of the negro. Youn, prepossessing, well dressed and orderly in language and behavior, he talks clearly and coherently about the murder, expecis to be hung, professes a " Christian hope " for the hereafter, and is prepared to save the government all trouble by pleadin" guilty. Except for his own confes-iorT, the evidence against him Is wholly circum stantial. His details of the crime show that it was not a premeditated murder he only Intended to bind nnd mz his viutfm but New York laws mnfce the takina of nr.. .. - rs . niu in niu commission oi a leiony murder in the first degree. Tbe account he gives of tho crime throws new light on the efll ciency of the police. He "entered by an open window, which the police overlooked ; tore the sheet up with his toelh lo bind Mrs. Hull, leaving marks with his teeth i im police tailed to find; and went out leaving an open door, which ftie patrol man did not notice. . The most horrible fact conneoled with the whole mailer is that a conspiracy was plainly formed lo swear poor Mrs. Hull's life away by self acoused accomplices, with no other object apparently than to oblige the police wiih a clew." It is a curious feature of crimi nal life in New York that it iuoludes men having " relations" with the police, ready to ourry favor hy the manufacture of "clews " to fit the " theory " of the detect ives. Judge Lawrenco of Ohio, an ex-mnmhnr of congress and shrewd political observer, thinks the republicans will carry the state by thirty thousand majority, rie thinks the disgraceful reoord made by the demo- ernifc .

' q Froa Oar Befular Correspondent.) Parts Letter. - Paris. Franoa. June X. 1879. Just one year ago, when I saw for the first time the raoe for the grand prix, there was Marshal MoMahon seated in the most prominent place on ibe grind stand, sur rounded by the shah of Persia, who ap peared to be dressed in , gentleman's gorgeous morning wrapper and smoking cap, Amedeus, ex-king of Spain, and other royal personages. To day President M. Grevy has the place of .honor, and other royalties surround him. Frenchmen and French women enjoy the race just the same, no ma'ter whether a republican or an imperialist president occupies the pur ple pavilion. Gay, enthusiast lo, art-loving, excitement-craving, sublime, selfish. grandly contemptible French people! To see iheni and to know them is to open nn entirely new volume of human nature. It may be well to remind your readers that the grand prix dates only from 1803. Before that time foreign horses could not compete for prizes in France, or rather they could not carry off any prize. When tbe jockey club was applied to on the sub ject they declared that their statutes for bade them to let a sixpence be diverted from their funds in favor of a foreign horse. The difficulty was turned hy M. de Morny, who contrived that tbe grand prize of one hundred thousand franco should be given half by the city of Paris and the other half by the five principal railway companies. The idea was just no less than ingenious, seeing that the city and the railways both gain by the influx of visitors. The first grand prize wat won by an English horse Rangen and great outcry was made on the score that ihe good people of Paris were siniph making a present of several ihousann pounds a year to perfide Albion. But the second year's prize wascariied off by M. Delamorre's Vermouth, and of the sixteei that have been run for, up to and includ ing to-day, nine have been won by Frenci animals. To come to the event of the day, nnd ti begin with the weather, .which has so im mense an effect on such meetings; i looked black and threateningall the morn ing, and at 1:30, just the hour when tin majority of visitors were preparing ti start, there came on a sudden and violent storm. The weather then remained fail till some lime after the grand prize had been run, and It was only thoso win waited to see tbe racing out who wen caught in a second downpour as violent a the first. The course was unusually well filled to-day, and I fancy there wero mon drags, on the hill than are generally to b seen. A to the grand slaml it could not have hold more people. Not only were all ihe tribunes densely packed, but the enliro space was occupied by n compact throng, and half tho numbers in tin weighing ground can have seen no more of tl,o great race than if they had remain id in Paris. The president's tribunu was thoroughly well filled. M. Grew sat in the middle of the front row, looking, ii must be confessed, as if he t'id not at al like bis prominent position, and as tliough ho did not care the least in the worl about what was going on. Madame and Mdlle. Grevy were, of course, there, to. gether wilb the ladies of several ministers. and I nlso remarked ihe presence of Count Beust, Prince Orloff and several oihei ambassadors. As it is certain to be stated that the prince of Wales was there, it U well to note thai, if his royal highness wat o ntpicuous nt tbe Longchamps race course to day, it was by his absence. It is known, of course, that the prince never attends Sundiy races, but some of the French papers give such circumstantial accounts of the disposal of his time when iie is jn Paris, lliat, if he manages to be in all the places he is supposed to attend he must, indeed, have ihe gift of ubiquity. The bell rang at the appointed time, and the course was speedily cleared, but a long delay occurred before the horses came out ono by one on tbe course. After ihe canter ihe animals walked past the tribunes in Indian file, and, having readied the starting place, to the right of the weighing ground, tho start was at once given. Ail round Ihe course, up the hill and down again as far as the stiaigbt run homo, the running was made by Ivuran gelle, the stable companion of Nubienne, followed closely by M. Fould s Avermes; but when they reached the level the pack was so close together that they might, to use the expressive phrase I heard uitered on nil sides, have been 'covered with n handkerchief. The colors of Lagrange, Blanc and Fould were thi n seen to the fore, nnd Flavis II., Salteador and Nubi enue came on so closely together that the issue seemed doubtful in the extreme. The struggle indeed was remarkably hard, but Nubienne sueoeeded in pissing Salteador by a neck, Flavis II. following scarcely a head behind. Seldom bas a race been more hotly contested, and although the result disappointed the expectations of the majority of spectators, tho entrance oi Nubienne into the weighing ground wa greeted with warm applause. At all events, the English horse had not carried oft the prize, and this was a great conso lation to French losers not that Nubienne had not been bucked ; M. Blanc, his owner, lias been so lucky of late that many had faith in his star. The other races had little comparative interest, nnd immediately after tbe grand prize had been run, began the gradual re turn homeward. To those who left the course it seemed as if all Paris had come ont to meet them. All through the Bois nnd nil the way up the Avcnno de lTinper atrice one was met by nn unbroken line of vehicles, private carriages, with lac'ies who had been afraid of the weather, being in the mijority. As to the Champs Elysees, the sight there was really remarkable, each side of the pathway being occupied by people who sat and stood in rows eight or ten deep. There they sat nnd stood pi tiently for hours, and until the storm sent all but the bravest flying, to watch tbe rclour de courses, and I am not sure that ihcy had not tho best of it. The Boule vards are naturally crowded to-night by a throng of loungers, who so.irooly know where to pass the first summer night of the season, and for whom the exceptional gayeties of Mabille will doubtless prove n potent attraction . Un the arrival of tbe reinforoements, the British army in Zululand will bo con siderably larger tban that which was present at Waterloo or at the Alma. At the memorable battle which ended In the overthrow of Napoleon the English troops numbered just under 24,000. At the first great fight in the Crimen tbe British forces consisted of 26,001) men. When tbe troops sent out during the last few days have crossed the Tngela the strength of the English army wlihin the ?ulu territory will be over 30,000, Fourth of July Celebration at Lyndonvllle.
