WAIL OF THE WIND. From the New York Evening Post. Wind, sigh through the trees I Ceaselessly, mournfully glide Over the land and the seas In a weird, invisible tide! Breathe on the lowly home. A mother loigs for her boy Away on the angry foam, Where wave and tempest destroy. Howl in the broken shroudi. Stifle the drowning cry, Naunht but ocean and clouds; 'lis a sailor's fate thus to die ! Moan fer the brave young heart 1 Mourn for the mother dead ! Sorrow ihsrpenoa tne aon. Grief laid the lod o'er her head. Wind, waft thee along. Gently and sadly and low I Memories come at thy song, Tears will unbidden o'erflow. David G, Adfjk. GOSSIP OF TIIK SARATOGA RACES. Correspondence New York Herald. The third day ol the second meeting, the five dava of the first meeting of the sinrntniTft Rur-inc Association brought us to the eighth day of the season. A de lightful season it bas been, notaoie dih not sensational, and this day only the overhanging sky was streaked with clouds, while the day was warm. Dim ila LriTA onmfnrtnhle stand was filled with chatting, happy people,- while the pools, which are here sofd under ar rangements equal to a canning esiao li.limini nr. prnwrlprl with hnvprs from every city in the Union. To buy a pool may be pampering with the blind god, chance, but it raises tne spirits oi uun rirvJa nf pncctntnrn and these, animated by a mild type of avarice, make the ex citable part ol tne auaieuce. toe piay of character then comes out defeat, .nilntDiaam ATritahilitv. morosenpss and while pool gelling is looked at by some askant, it is necessarily one of the sources of revenue to the association which aims to give a good show regard less of expense, ine rrencn ruutuei pools, costing but five dollars a ticket, tha rnuEAi nf vnunrr men and loiterers, as to day, for example, when tickets on the Mcuaniei stame Drougm rmttr Allaf. nHd T.nrffpr onprators. Ili i J u u . . i. . u vwv., n - - 1 acquainted with pool selling, bought in the region ot izuu tor less man iuu. Seeing Dr. Underwood, the universal auctioneer of these field pools, I said to him .... "Do not the French Mutuels tako a irront Hba.1 from moner otherwise in vested in your field pools, Doctor?" 1 Not a bit. most people ouy ootu, hedging the field with Mutuel tickets. The more the merrier!" " Were you the introduoer of pool selling into the United States?" "1 was, sir. It is now seventeen years ago, and then I lived in Lexing ton, Kentucky. Well, I give you my word that every time e had a horee ranallii) linttinrr mAnPV WnilM hf Tltlt UD in bad hands, or a counterfeit bill would be put against a good one, or somettung of that kind, and a great many shoot ing matches took place. I thought it all over, for you know I was a horse boj from my youth np. I used to walk from Dublin tea IrUh miles to a race and back again, and be sure of a licking from my faiher when I got home. But there w:is so much music in a horse, Lord bles3 me I how could I help it? Now, do you Bee, at Lexington I be thought me of how they used to make l:... : K Via rAA .nnnlr at trip ntiKlin houses, and I conceived this system of pool selling, ana tney ve. Kept me at it ever since." ' " What's the largest pool you ever sold, Doctor?" - "Twelve thousand dollars at Saratoga a. nVinnt llip !vr(PSt " "How much money has passed through your hands to pools in these seventeen years?" , . " Oh, don't a6k ma that; I don I thick I ever counted. Yon see people have been trying to bet that thry can come nearer the sum thau somebody eUe, and that would make my memory the sub ject of a conteution. So I never counted U Thus I lost the chance to preach a great moral lesson from the amount of money wasted on pools. The track was very good, the weather was threatening. It should have been just tha day for horses to run, except that it wat close. To first race was a MEMPHIS, TENN.: WEDNESDAY pretty oue, contested well by two out of the five horses, and it was for only three fourths of a mile. As yon will see below, King Bolt beat Rbadamanthus. King Bolt blew his nostrils uader the long, white streak of his nose, switched his cropped tail and ambled with his white feet, while all the people noted his long bay body, strong as a section of mahog any. Ui8 father was Lexington, mar vellous old sire, whose colts are like the seed of Abraham, and seem to be aware of their ancestry. The jockey wearing the orange, slashed with crimson, leaped down to receive congratulations and hastily scampered away, while they folded the racer in blankets up to bis eyes and he strode of? lazily with one dreamy look up into the stand. The crowd then gazed on Bolmont's beautiful black colt, Khadamanthus, named with the taste which attends the Belmont stake. This, was one- of the sons of Leamington, half brother to the great Biissett, now the idle prince of the harem. The close mateh those two fine animals made excited a stableman to say: , "They're both great investments. Two years old leaves plenty of time to run and win. One of tbcee great fellows cost $7000, and the other $5500 as a yearling." Hunter & Travera- against Belmont make a dignified race every time. Be hind the horses are men of wide affairs and worldly prudence. For some mys terious reason, in every race, there is a general expectation that Hunter 4 Travers will win. Indeed, people seldom refer to the names of their horses, but jay, "I think I will buy on Hunter & Travers."- Travers is said to kiiow little of horses, practically, but to be anima ted by a general love of field sports, and to leave the realities of buying and training to his partner, Hunter. bowling's owner, in a gray suit, leans lazily against the fence at the judges' stand, dropping quizzical, sententious remarks, lie bas had hard luck, but takes it philosophically. Over there is the greatest racer of them all in fame, with a foot full of pain, shackled, as it were, to the stall, while his spirit is bouuding through the air. Tom Bow ling, the mighty bay horse, lies there in the darkness, while all around him his galloping peers are spurning the foam; but Magruth merely grumbles a little and leans against the fence to see his horse Calvin come in fourth. " Mac," says a bystander, " how came a sporting man to name a horse Cal vin?" " Humph!" says the owner. "S' posed he was going to be one of the elect." "Why," says the other, "Mac don't know who Calvin was, nor Armenius either, nor the Apostle Paul. He named him for a man named Calvin down in Tennessee." Bowling's owner has hanged more people than any man in this country. He is the largest hemp merchant in the Uuited States; a real Kentuckian, who, until the war, lived out his life between New Orleans and Maysville. There is Donahue, too, the queer Irish contractor, who is to run to-day a horse named Botany Bay, in addition to Cot trill's queerly named bay, Bay Rum. But Botany Bay is a chestnut, and there lore no by whatever. Donahne lives back off on the hights of Bergen, not far from the fiery old McDaniel, the man who wins a little less than everything. Donahue won a race the other day in what is called a run ning race; that is, the winner must con sent to have bis horse sold afterward. To Donahue's disgust McDaniel stepped forward, nothing if not the merchant, and bought his neighbor's winner. This filled his soul with the wiath of ingrati tude. After the rac was over, when two or three reporters were quietly writing in the grand stand, all deserted save of them, a terrible row was heard underneath in the barroom. " You murthenn old thafe, there 8 a hundred bushels of oats I gave yez, and ye owe me for the same to this day. And now ye buys me best horse; blawst yez old, hard hearted soul!" "Goawa! Uoawal l u put a tunnel under your Bergen mighty quick." Pistols were drawn. McDaniel had all hia stable assembled big and little jeckey, picaninny, negro, groom, and trainer. " Dublin! Dublin! Galway! Galwayl cried all the brood; "touch Mr. Mack, and we'll make fodder of ye. Go for bim, Mr. Mack!" " Whin yea was starvin' thim byes, and they hadn't a herring nor pay sour, didn't 1 fade 'em for yez, and did ye iver pay me for that?" " Charge on him. Mr. Mack!" cried the great and motley deputation. "Make litter of him! Beat bis head off!" The aspect of the place was then so threatening that friends toak Donahue off, and left his Scotch opponent, if pos sible, more red and blazing of complex ion than before. ... That night the facts were reported to John Mornssey by some gossipers. " Those- Bien shall be called before the association," said Morrissey. " That's no kind of conduct." " But nobody saw it. There were none present except themselves. The audience had all retired." "It makes no difference," said the impartial gladiator. "Suppose these men had fired upon each other, or wounded each other. It would have been blot upon the turf." Arcording'y, before the solemn inves tigation of he Ricing Association, both Scot and Milesian were produced. They were made to mdke written apologies, and at the next meeting the same were read from the judges' stand before all the people. When they want to find out, in the country, if a girl is out courting or not, an old lady steps in and remurks: "I say, there ain't no one sick in this house, or nothin'. is there? 1 seen a light 1 burning meli into twelve o'clock last i night, but I don't smell no camphire or uothin' round."
