Thnv nnsnrnrt an area of fifty or more acres on the wa* ter, aud they kept up a noise throughout tho race that startled tho , peoplo who came from Europe to boo the event. From early morning there was no sign of* breeze, and a dirty haze hung over the water,, lndicativo of a continuous, thick atmosphere and a poor view of the race. With, favorable surroundings, the raco would havo been started at half-past 10 o'clock this morning, hut at that hour thero was not air enough to blow a match out, and tho judges on Commodore Garry's Electra waited to Btart the racers until there should a chance of getting the boats over tho course within the preEcribod seven hours. That appearanco did not come until noon. * At that time a ripple came over the water from southward nnd eastward and a signal woa given to clear the coarse. The Thistle and Volunteer had come put from their respective anchorages. The Thistlo moved about in a very lively fashion ia the light air. She appeared to take much ploasure in running past nnd around the Volunteer, which she did several times, nnd every timo met with loud approbation from the admiring spectators, all of whom Beemed confident and willing that she should win the lirat rsco. At 12:29 the Eloctra fired the preparatory guu and at 12:30, the gun to Btart. After that the yachts had live minutes to cross tho lice. If either had taken longer than five-minutes, her tiaie of start would have been registered at the expiration of tho 117b minutes. The boats crossed as (nllnwa* . Thietle?12 hoars, 33 minutes and G seconds. Volunteer?12 hours, 34 minutes and 58 Eecond3, a walkovkk race. The Thistle not only bad the noarer position when the order to start waa given, bnfc ebo also wont through the water the factor. She got'over the lino 1 minute and 52 seconds ahead. Tho eight miles an hour wind waa' then from the southBoutbeaat, and tho yacts had to sail close on the wind. They went over on the port tack, and at occc tho Volunteor began to overhaul the Thistle. The first tack waa in toward Clifton, Staten Island, and on that tack of fifieon minutes or less tbo Volunteer showed a superiority over tho Thistlo in weather that had been written down as the foreigner's be6t. That left no doubt of tho result. The Volunteer went by the cutter as though the latter was anchored, and she stayed in front to tho ond.. It was no .longer.a race. It was a procession. Tho' wind varied in locality and strength, and sometimes ono boat had it when the other did not, lJut the average made things ' pretty noarly even. Tho roeUlt was a most decisive victory for tho Amaricau sloop, beating, stretching and rnnning with free sheets. The Volunteer outsailed the Thistlo. The Volunteer beat tho Thistle 19 minutes and 29 seconds. After the race Mr. James Call, principal owner of the Thistle, said he was not at all satisfied with tho reeaU. Tho Thistle, he declared, had never moved so slowly through the wator. He wao of the opinion that there was "something wrong with the cutter's bottom" and she would bo hauled out of water to-morrow with a view toward finding out what it was. He did not consider that a raco had been sailed for that reason and because tho wind was bo ? i.. ? uiiuuft' AIIU i umuiuor i.'i.uu UBU 106 advantage of a brseza that the Thistle did not.feel. Brides, the exoaraion boats swashed tho Thiotle to a damaging extent. Captain Barr, of tho Thistle, held the same viewa. He said that some ol the crew had been notitiod anonymously that the cutter'a bottom had teen "doctored," and the truth would be ascertained before Thursday, tho day of tho next race. Captain Bnrr said he had sailed the Thistle every time she had been out and he never knew hertogiva bo badly on the wind. General P*iino and Mr. Edward Burgess, of tho Volunteer, took the victory quietly, but very happily. Captain llaff aaid that tho feasor* that tho Thistle aaiiod so much faster than his vessel before tho Btart was that the Volunteer aid not have her centre board down on account of the shallow water inBide buoy 18. t>..

TIIK MARYLAND SITUATION. Probabilities That Lite State Will Go Republican?Valr Couut Wanted* PjTrsuuKGH, Pa., Sept. 27.?A Washington epecial Bays: There is (more daylight on the political horizon for the Kepabli* cane ot Maryland than .there has been at any time since they met their Waterloo in 1807. For twenty years Gorman and hia gang hare ruled the State. Their ruling has been bo arbitrary and their methods so disgusting that at last the respectable eioment in the Democracy of Maryland has determined to cast oft the incumber, Gorman, -with all that that name implies. No one can have an idea of the stench which arises from the corruption in Maryland politics. Thieves, cut-throats, jail birds aud ballot-box staffers absolutely rule everything, Ttaore has not been an honeat election in Baltimore for fifteen years, bat this year the citizens aro determined that there shall be a fair vote and and an honest count. A few months ago a reform league was organized and money subscribed to banish the tricksters who have controlled tho elections in tho paet. This movement hoe been fostered and aided by almost the entire Baltimore bar, and within the ranks of the independents are the leading Democratic business men of the Monumental Oity. Among the names of the most prominent are bankers, merchants, ship owners, and, in fact, respectable business men of all classes. Thoy have succeeded in convicting not less than ten of the men who have raped the ballot boxes, and they have a great many, more under indictment. Gorman and hia henchmen?for Gorman is all powerful in the State of Maryland?have put up a State ticket of respectable figureheads, but the platform upon which these dummies are to make their fight ia entirely at variance with, the views of the citiz3ns of Maryland, who are anxious for clean politics. The Gorman faction refuoes to pay attention to the warning, of tho better element of the Democratic party, and as a result the leaders of the independent movement informed tho Republicans that if they would nominato clean men and adopt a platform such as was desired, I Which Bhould eive a dIpcIwa Hint an ulon. tion law baaed on that in operation in N ew Yorir, shoold ba tho first legislation act they would vote for and support tho ticket, The Republicans complied with the request of the Independents and tho result ia that the latter promise that tho ticket shall be elected. The corre&pondent BpBnt several honra in Baltimore yesterday looking into the situation. He saw twenty or thirty ol the leading Independent Democrats and was assured by tliom that thoro will be at least eight thousand votes, usually Democratic, cast for tho Republican ticket in Baltimore alone. As tho Democratic majority in that city does not exceed sixty-live hundred, at the least, it will readily be seen that if the Independents can keep their promise they have only to secure a count of the vote to insure tha election of the entire Republican ticket, Mr. "William -M. Marbury, a leading member of the Baltimore bar, who baa been a Democrat all his life, voicod the sentiment of tho Independent party when he stated that an attempt to tamper with the ballots of the Independents this vaay QTAnlfl * ? ~" Hi/Uku vu>wi?u; IGRU fit/ UiUUUaU<JU| (id each and every man among them ia determined that the ballots shall be counted.
