CiURLKSTOX, Wednesday April 12, 1854. The Convention was called to order by the Pre sident a few minutes after 9 o'clock. Lieut W. F. Maurt presented the following re uort from the Committee oriT5usincss: i. 7?J.f That -whilst Asriculture is, and properly should be, the predominant pursuit of the tion, the interests of these States would be very greatly promoted by the employment of capital m other pursuits, and especially to Manufactures aud W the abundance and cheapness of the means of subsistence, of fuel nnd water power, the of the climate, and other natural ad- r.ntffP -will, if nroperly improved, secure to these States a virtual monopoly of the manufactures a3 n-nll ih( erowth of cotton; that it is believed tliinreent cost of transporting this staple abroad, will more than cover the expense of manufacturing it at home; and that, as an investment, for secu rity, for certainty of result and Uniformity of in come, the factory and the mine, when properly man seed has no superior. 2d. Resolved, That a Committee of be appointed by this Convention, for the purpose of obtaining the most reliable statistical information as to .the number and location of manufactories and mines of the States represented in this body; the canilal invested in the tcvcral establishments: the amount of income and disbursements; the number of hands (operatives) employed, free and slave; the amount ot the raw material consumeu; uie quau titvand nualitv of tho manufactured articles pro duced; the prices at which they are furnished; the markets in which they are chiefly sold, and other items of information, tending to show the present condition and extent of our manufacturing inter est; and that said Commitlco furnish to the Secre inrv nl lha Convention a report of their investiga- . J ,ii i t i...r. tlOnfl, 10 Oe lUm uy HUH uciuic luu iiuai. umuug ui the Convention; and that it be the duty of said Committee to address the people of the States re presented in this Convention, and to urge the im portance of action in the Legislatures thereof, in lavor of education, of manufactories, of ship-building, "of direct trade, and of mining; and that it be the duty of said Committee to collect, and present at the next meeting of the Convention, statistics and other iifeful information relating to the inter national improvements of the several States, their industrial 'resources, their mineral treasures, their mahfacturing fail tics and their capacities for trade and commerce, logo -her with a statement in which bhall be set forth the names and lengths of the several railways, their cost, and the increased value which has been imparted to lands and other pro perty, in consequence of such improvements. .Resolved, Tliat a Committee of be ap- p6iuted to memorialize Congress in the namo of this Convention, and in the most earnest manner to urge the importance of and to pray for the follow ing measures; vie 1. The remission of duties on all railroad iron. 2. The passage of an Act for the improvement of the merchant service, by encouraging boys to go to sea. nnd for preventing desertion. 3. To send one or two small naval steamers up the Amazon, for the purpose of exploring the tribu taries of that river, which the States owning them have declared to lie free to the commerce and navi gation of the whole world. 4. To encourage the establishment of a line of mail steamers between somts Southern sea-port town and the mouth of the Amazon, or some other port in Brazil. 5. And also to encourage tho establishment of a direct mail route by steamer?, between some South ern port and Europe. f. Upon the improvement of harbors and navi gable rivers. . Resolved, That in the judgment of this Conven tion, the adoption of the above named measures would tend mightily to promote the general wel fare. The interests of the country require them, and even-handed justice should mete them out. Whereas, The government of Bolivia, Teru and Ecuador have made tho navigation of their Amazo nian waters free to all the world, and tvtereas, this anion on the part of those governments has re moved those streams from the condition of inland waters, the navigation of which is peculiar to the Republican States above, and placed them in the category of arms of the sea, the navigation of which is as free to all the world as is that of the the great high sets themselves. Whereas, The doctrine that tho straits or natural rlmnnels which connect free waters with the main Ocean, are also free, even though both banks of such channel-way belong to the same state, ana be within canuon shot of each other, is founded on the everlasting principles of right, and is sanctioned by the law of nations; and whereas, the attention of the Federal Government has been invited to this subject by a memorial from the Memphis Conven tion: therefore be it Resolved, That Brazil, the nation owning both banks of the Amazon, at its mouth, has no right arbitrarily to shut out the world from the naviga tion of its waters, or to prevent tho citizens of the United States from passing through tho same, with their vessels and merchandize, to the Riparian States, who have invited us to come and trade there. . , . , 2. That the President of this Convention bo re quested, in the namo of tho Convention, to con gratulate the governments of Bolivia, Peru and Equador upon the enlightened and liberal policy which they have adopted with regard to their Ama zonian Provinces, and to assure them of the deep interest which the people represented in this Con vention feel with regard to the free navigation of the Amazon and its tributaries, to the speedy set tlement of tho country drained by it, and to the development of its resources. Resolved, That a Committee of be appointed to consider and report upon the propriety and ex pediency of adopting some plan for promoting Southern and Western manufactures and mining operations. Resolved, That this Convention recommend to each of the Southern States having a seaport, to en courage the establishment f a direct trade with Europe, cither by exempting from taxes, for a limited time, tho goods imported, or by allowing importers an equivalent drawbark or bounty, or by such other mode as to the Legislatures of the re spective States may seem best. Resolved, That efforts should bo made to estab lish a direct line of steamers with Europe, from some Southern port or ports, wiOiout farther delay; and that, in the event of tho establishment of such aline, the united support of all the Southern States should be pledged, if possible, to sustain such a line. Resolved, .That this Convention recommend to the Government of the United States the forma tion of reciprocal treaties with foreign governments for the admission of their respective products at re duced and eoual rates of duty; and that tho Sena tors and Representatives from the respective States be requested to bring the subject before Congress. These resolutions wero ordered to be printed. Among other proceedings of the day wo find the following : Mr. Birch, of Tenn., offered a resolution suggest ing that Uie Legislatures of the several Southern States be recommended to appropriate thou sand dollors for tho construction of steamers to ply between Southern and European ports. Referred to Uie General Committee. n'S!m' of Tenu-. presented a resolution rirtt ,c Ge,1Pral 'iovemroeut be re- ?SJn r ?

Also that tho great sums paid by tho Federal Government for the maintenance of European mail steamers, was collected principally at tho expense of the Southern States: and that all such partiality exhibited on the part of Uie General Government; ought to cease. The resolutions were received wiUi applause, and were referred to the General Committee. Mr. Leake, of Va., offered a resolution providing that the General Government be memorialized to pass sufficient laws to prevent Uie abduction of s Tes on board of steam and other fillips: referred . to the General Committee. Mr. Moore, of Ala., proposed that in tho opin ion of the Conscntion, it was of vital importance that a direct trJae ue openeu irom oumeru pons in -the Untied States to ports in South America, arid particularly, (o those of the Empire of Brazil. '. i r n . i as an object 'sincerely to be desired by the South ern States. (Applaure.) llhe-resolutions were re ferred to the General Committee. The Convention then proceeded to the discussion ,jf the .resolutions on Uie .subject ol tho lacing Railroad. We publish Uiose offered by benator Jones of this State. They are as follows : tirsnlvetl. That in tho opinion of Uiis Convention, the construction of a Raihoadsconnectiug the At lantic with Uie Pacific Ocean, is a measure of the greatest .National importance, jiegarumy . measure eminently National in "its character, and beyond the ability of the States or individuals to construct, u is in iuouaiu'i""'" -w.. vention the dutv of the Federal Government to promote the great National enterprise by all the measures within its powers, not inconsistent with Uie Constitution of the United States. Resolved, further, That from the most reliable in formation now before the Convention, it b believed that the country known as the Mesilla Valley, claimed, to be within the limits of Uie Republic of Mexico, .atlorUs the nearest and moat practicable route for the construction of said road. , In view, therefore, of Uie paramount importance of this enterprise to the whole nation, this Conven tion would most respectfully suggest to the Presi dent of Uie United States that lie cause such nego tiations to be instituted between the two govern ments as" ma secure to the country the right to construct a iioau.aiong uie route inuicaiea. The remainder of the third day's session was con sumed in discussing this subject. General Leslie Combs, of Ky., and Albekt P:ke, Esq., of Ark., made able and interesting speeches. frftorn pat. Thursday, April 13, 1851. After Uie organization of tho Convention, the resolutions of Lieut. Mahhv, printed above, were taken up. The first of the series was adopted after one 'or two verbal amendments, in no wise changing tho sense of the resolution as above printed. Tho second resolution was then read, and on motion, by Lieut, Maury, the blank in Uie firstline was tilled by the words "three irom eacn state, and adopted. The third resolution, being tliat on which the whole business of the day turned, was then read. Mr. Polk, of Tenn., moved to strike out tho "sixth clause of Uie resolution relating to the improvement of rivers and harbors by the General Government, lie understood this clause as making tho Conven tion mere memorialists to Congress upon a ques tion which he had always regarded as bearing a po litical aspect. Mr. Maury moved to fill the blank in the first paragraph with the words "three from each State," which motion was agreed to. Mr. Polk said he was unwilling that the Conven tion should refer to a political proposition which had been naturalized in itself. Until Uie Cth pro position was stricken out he could not become a part' to appoint a'committee to consider a nation al question wiUi which the Convention liad noth ing to do. Tho President stated that the proper course wa3 to take up Uie" proposition by paragraphs, and a dis tinct voto might he taken on Uie proposition of the gentleman from Tennessee at the proper time. Mr. Polk said he might bo misapprehended in this matter. Ho did not wish to beso. He thought that any proposition presented to this Convention, should be presented in a manly and frank manner. If hu apprehension was right, there was an insid ious purpdse here. Whenever any thing was to be accomplished, let it bear upon its face its mean ing, its propriety, and its force. Let it not be swallowed up as this thing was, among other things and ho meant no disrespect for the Com mittee for he liked in all cases, in touching ques tions which, had engaged the greatest minds in days gone by, as well as in the present day, that those questions should be presented palpably. -He hoped the Convention would not try to make him a memo rialist in regard to a-matter that the whole school ing of his mind would never permit him to submit to. Jf the chairman of the committee meant to say that the Constitution gave to Congress the pewer to improve rivers and harbors, let him say so in plain terras. Mr. Maury I intend to say so at theproper time, which will be when wo come to the sixth clause, of the resolution. Applause. The President the first question now is on tho first proposition in relation to the remission of tho duties on railroad iron. Mr. Tift, of Georgia, moved to amend the first proposition by striking out the word "remission," and inserting the word "reduction." Adopted. The question then recurred on the adoption of the first proposition in tho resolution as it had boen amended. Mr. S. F. Leake demanded the voto by States, and it was accordingly so taken, and resulted in its adoption by a vote of 10 to 2. Arkansas and South Carolina not voting, or being tied. Tho question next recurred on the second pro position of the resolution, as follows: 2. The passage of an act for the improvement of the meichant fervice, by encouraging boys to go to sea, and for preventing desertion. The proposition was agreed to without opposi tion. The question recurring on tho third proposition, Lieut. Herndon, (ofVa.,; after a very beautiful speech, moved to amend it by adding the word3 "And that the government of Brazil be requested to permit these vessels to make explorations and purveys on the shores of the Amazon belonging to that nation." The amendment was agreed to, and Uie third proposition, as thus amended, read as follows: U. To send one or two small naval steamers up the Amazon for the purpose of exploring tho tribu taries of that river, which the States owning them have declared to be free to Uie commerce and nav igation of the whole world. And that the Govern ment of Brazil be requested to permit these vessels to make explorations and surveys on the shores of the Amazon belonging to that nation. The fourth and fifth propositions in tho resolution were then passed with slight verbal amendment. The question then recurred on the sixth and Ia-st proposition, which was debated with considerable vehemence. It is as follows: "Also, the improvement of harbors and of navi gable rivers." Mr. Polk, of Tenn., moved to strike it out. Lieut. Maury said the resolution had been fully debated in committee, and that Uie gentleman from Tennessee had opposed it there as here. lie spoko against the motion at some lengtii. Mr. Polk admitted that, as tho gentlecan had stated, he had opposed these resolutions in the Committee. He was opposed to this recommend ation, on the ground that it presented for its con sideration a question of political opinion, which had agitated the councils of the nation, and if that question was to be decided at all, it should be deci ded in Congress and not here. (Applause.) He did not pretend to regulate tho whole of the Tennesseo delegation, but he would not consent, as an individual, to be placed in the position of a me morialist to Congress to ask what ho believed to be a violation of tho Constitution. (Applause.) He would say, as brethren, that they should pass the hand of friendship looking alone to Southern and Scuth-Western interests; and he prayed them to keep out of their deliberations any clement of dis cord. Such,-lie thought, was embraced in this proposition, and therefore ho moved to strike it out. Tho question being taken viva voce, the result was doubtful, and a vote by States was demanded, and being taken, resulted nays 10, ayes 4, as fol lows: Noes. Alabama, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Maryland, Missouri, Nerth Corolinaand Texas. Ayes Georgia, South Carolina, Tennesseo and Virginia. So tho motion to strike out was rejected. Mr. Polk presumed Uiat the refusal to striko out the proposition did not preclude it from being a mendeiL The President Certainly not. Mr. Polk. Then I move to amend it by adding the words : "And Uiat the Government of Uie United States purchase or take the Island of Cuba.', (Great applausa) If tho Convention was to act upon political question, he knew not where it could reasonably stop; aud it might as well memoralize fr the purchase or acquisition of tho Island of Cu ba as for any other matter involving a political dis F"1 Tr Thie Sentieman from Uie District of Colum bia (Mr. Maury) had contended that the improve ment ot rivers mid harbors wero necessary for the tlfS ,i 'V? un,tr'- lf that were so, the pos session of the Island of Cuba was more so. He supposed that it might be an object for England or some oilier power to possess tho Island. He pro posed to Memorialize Congress to pay Uie full value ot it, or if it could not be had in that way that the United States should take it. A delegate moved to amend Uie amendment by adding, "and that we also; purchase Or take- tho whole of Mexico." (Great laughter : nd npplaiire.) Mr. Smith, of Tennessee, rose toajhiint'of order! The amendment of the gent'emari front? Tennessee (Mr. Polk) was not in ordernotlcing germane to- the subject. . Tho President decided that it was not germane, and therefore nqt iu order. " v Jr Mr. l'olk appealed Irom the decision of' the chair. - - . ... Mr. Perry held Uiat the member from Tennesseo (Mr. Polk) had a parliamentary right to' move any amendment or additional clauso ho might think proper. Ho would suggest to the gentleman, that if he would striko out the word "purchase" anJ insert "acquire, he wouiu vole witlrtnm. Air. I'ollc 1 accept the amendment. (Great ap plause.) Mr. lerry. I he ameudment is certainly as le gitimate as the original proposition quite as proper to asK the Government to "acquire the Island bt Cuba, a3 to devote its energies to the cleaning out of ourrivers and harbors. It comes within the, same category as all tho other resolutions, and I hold it to be a perfectly legitimate amendment. (Laughter and applause.) The President The Chair has not decided that it is not a subject matter fit for the consideration of Uiis Convention. That is not the question at all The original proposition is in regard to the improvement of rivers and harbors, and any amend ment tending to that object would be germane, and in order. But the proposition of the gentleman from Tennessee is a distinct proposition, and can only be entertained as suck Mr. Polk. Then I move it as a distinct proposi tion. The President. Then it will be proposition No. 7. Mr. Wallace, of Virginia. But before wo ad vance to No. 7, 1 think it would be quite proper to disnose of No. C. ( Applause and lauehter.) I propose to strike out tho whole proposition. The President. But it has not yet been decided what is to bo done with the sixth clauso of the res olution. Mr. Clay, of Ala., moved to amend the sixth clause so Uiat it would read as follows : "Also for, the improvement of harbora and navi gable rivers, so lar as may be within the Uonsutu tional competency of Congress." This amendment gave rise to a very animated de bate, in which Messrs. Jones, of Tennessee, McFar- land. ot Va.. Jvirlcpatnck. ot Va.. Itocklana ana Winslow, of North Carolina, and Wallace of Va., took part. The Convention adiourned without coming to vote upon the final adoption of the sixth clause of Uie resolution. TUE FOREIGN NEWS. Our telegraphic despatches of Sunday morning were so confused aud unsatisfactory, that we copy below tho news by the America and Herman as we find it in our Louisville papers : Halifax, April H. The America has arrived. Sales of cotton at Liverpool .10,000 bales New Orleans fair 0, upland fair G, upland middling 5d. The demand is moderate, and prices have declined Jd per pound. Holders are pressing on tho mar ket. Sales to speculators 1,000 bales, and to ex porters 3.000 bales. Flour Ohio 38s. Corn yellow -12s, whito 43s, Uonsols 80s. Tho Queen has announced to Parliament Uie Czar's refusal to reply to tho ultimatum, and war is expected immediately. Tho Herman has also arrived. New York, April 1-1. Tho Herman brings dates to the 29th. The Nashville arrived out on the 27th. The Queen's message to Parliament on the 29th concluded that she relied on the bravery of the ar my and navy in the present emergency. The declaration of war appears in the London Gazette of Uie 28th, and the same day the legisla ture of Paris received a message from Emperor Na poleon, declaring that Russia had placed herself in a state ot war with 1' ranee, and the trench Uov- eminent announces that it will not grant letters of marque. A cabinet courier had been dispatched from Eng land and Franco to Russia witii the ultimatum, and has returned with the announcement that no reply would be made. The result has been aunounceu by the Queen to the cabinet, There was great excitement in Russian produce, and hemp, cotton, and grain had advanced at Liver pool, and large speculative purchases of American ilour were made at 4s advance. Richardson quotes Baltimore and Ohio Hour firm at .lus Cd, white wheat lis Cd, red and mixed 10s Cdalls: white corn 42a43s, mixed 41a42s Cd. Liverpool, 29.

Wheat has advanced iu some cases 18d tho ave rage advance i3 Is. Corn has advanced 4s above the Europa's quotations. Money tighter. It is reported that Austria was inclined toward the Western powers. This report is coupled with the riso in English' consols, and caused a rally at the Paris Bourse; 3's closed at 02 CO, aud after the regular bourso wa3 done at C2 84; i's at 83 90. The failure of Seecy, Decharroll & Co., bankers, of Paris, is announced. Trade at Manchester is almost suspended. The Emperor Napoleon's announcement was re ceived in both chambers with extraordinary enthu siasm, j Tho Russian fleet has left Sebastopol to provis ion the Russian fortresses on the Circassian coast. The following is the Queen's declaration of war ; Her Majesty, the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, is compelled to take up arms in support of an ally, and i3 desirous of rendering it as little onerous as possible to Uie powers with whom she remains at peace, and to preserve the commerce of tho neutral powers from all unnecessary obstructions. Her Majesty is will ing at present to waive a part of her belligerant rights appertaing to her by the law of nations, but it is impossible for her Majesty to forego the exer cise of her rights in seizing articles contraband to war, and from preventing the neutral powers from bearing the enemy's despatches, and she must maintain the rights of a belligerant to. pre vent the neutral powers from breaking any effec tive blockade which may bo established with an adequate force against our enemies in forts, harbow, orcotsis, but her Majesty will waive the right of seizing tho enemy's property ladened on board of neutral vessels, unless it be contraband of war. It is not her M aiesty s intention to claim the con fiscation of neutral property not being contraband of war, found on board of the enemy's ships, and her Majesty further declares, that, being anxious to lessen as much as possible Uie evils of war, and to restrict its operations to the regularly organized forces of tho country. It is not her intention to issuo letters for privateering. Sir Charles Napier's fleet anchored off Kiel on the 27th. Eighteen thousand Russians crossed Uie Danubo on the 2Jd, and oo,000 crossed at Matchin wiuiout molestation. A skirmish occurred between the Russians and Turk3 on a bridge at Maud Tutalc. During the engagement 2,000 Russians were percipitated into me river anu urowneu. The Duke of Parmawas stabbed by an assassin and died Uie next day. Vienna, Friday. A dispatch has inst been re ceived, announcing that, on the 29th, the Russians attacked Aalatat and took three redoubts. The rupture between Greece aud Uie Sultan is complete. Dates from Constantinople state that the steam ers Retribution and Canton have returned from the mouth of the Danube without succeedingin freeing its mouth from obstructions.

GREAT FOUR MILE DAY. 7IJE FASTESTTIMEOXRECORD;c$G; 7:3SJ "The fashion of this wotld passeth away'" saith the Good Book, and we havo a new illustration of it furnished by the events of yesterday '3 race on the Metaire Course; fashions f.iih and :-15 on Long Island in 1842, and George Martin's 7:33, and 7:43, here in 1813, the two best races that have ever been run, have been signally beaten by the winner ol the day. w here is Jiidipse now ex claimed Young America, when Fashion beat Bos ton in five seconds less time than was made by Uie conqueror of nenry. Where is Fashion now? wo in our turn demand, as we see her beaten in six seconds and a half less time than ler own. Truly we live in a'jSrogressivoage, and what we are coming to, who can tell? During tho week past, the question has been re peatedly asked, if any of the contestants in tho late atate staice liace, would run again dwrmg the pre sent season. A feverish excitement pervaded Uie community, in view orsuch a possible event, and Uie conviction was freely expressed Uiat if it were to come.off'Lexington would be likely to have his well won laurela cropped, if not lose them entirely. A contest between Lexington and Lecompte was freely talked of, and when, on Friday evening it was announced on thfc courso, that an arrangement to Uiat effect had been made, and Uiat the next day would see its consummation, the news spread elec trically, ,and we found ourselves again in tho midst of an excitement of course. Everything was in favorof tho prospect forsport. The track was in tip-top order, confessedly. The. day rose fair, and continued so. The ride to tho Course was delightful. Every thing seemed to favor the occasion. From an early hour to a late one, all the roads were filled by travelers, availing them selves of every kind and description of locomotion. Everything, from a dray to a t'our-in-hand, -was in requisition, and they who were "too late for the wagon" walked. Fully ten thousand people must have been present on the stands and in the field. The sight was truly animating. The ladies, as up on the former great occasion, made a goodly show on tiio stands appropriated to them by the gallan try of the Club, antl added no little to the pleas ure of the day. Betting, which wa3 by no means slow in any part of the course, ran amasingly high in this department of it, and we saw many anti Lecompte bets most chccrfully and smilingly paid by laughing losers, while many musical reminders that Lexington had lost, suggested to as many overta ken gentlemen that "place aux dames'' should bo their motto in setting their books. We grieve to say that Lexington, by the bye, proved to be the favorite, to a great extent among the ladies, who, we will do them the credit to say, paid up with most commendable promptness; so far as they could do so, on the field. Of the gloves, aud hand kerchiefs, and other pretty trifles, which they wa gered, we of course cannot speak, with equal confi dence. The race, of which we give below a detailed ac count, was indeed an exciting one. Since tho ra ces we have alluded to as hitherto among tho great est that have been run, there has been nothing like it; and in all its incidents, from the start to Uie vic tory, it will always be remembered as pre-emin ently Uie greatest four mile race on record. The betting' was extiemcly heavy; still it was less than on the last week's race, as there were not so many strancrers in town and money had not been sent here from abroad to be invested.on the side of any favorite. Beforo leaving the city, Lexington was the favorite, at even money against the field; but a few minutes before the race, we witnessed some transactions in which Lexincton was backed at 400 to SO against Uie field, or 100 to CO against Lecomnte. Much money was risked on time, but the lowest timo that we could hear of being mark ed was 7.32. So far .13 we could judge, the horses all appeared to be in excellent condition, and "eager for the fray," as they moved to and fro beforo the stands, to the admiration ot the anxious thousands. The drum taps; and the horses dash off with a rush for the first heat, and on passing the first turn Lecompte led, Lexington being second, and Rube trailing behind, but at a? fast a cait and as bold a stride as he could well accomplish. Their position did not varv for nearly three miles, although the paco incrcaSSl; Uie space between the horses at times increasing and diminishing, Lexington several times makinga brush t ) take the lead, but Lecompto increasing .his speed to prevent it. On entering Uie fourth mile, and on tho back stretch of it, Lexing ton partially closed Uie gap that Lecompto had Open ed on him, and attempted to outfoot him. The at tempt was immense, and elicited the loudest .en comiums of Lexington's friends and backers; but it was inellectual. The spur was ireely used to induce him to do what his friends claimed forhim, Uiat he was the fastest horse in the world at a brush; but Lecompto baflled all his;efforts, kept tho lead and won the heat amid deafening shouts, by six lengths, in much the quickest time ever made in tho world 7:2G! If the result of the heat induced great shouting, the announcement of the time produced still more clamorous demonstrations of delight. All knew that the heat was very fast, but each one of the hundred persons who held watches, could scarcely believe their own time,until the judges announced it officially. During the great excitement which was concen trated on the two contending horses, Rube had al most been lost sight of, but ho camo home at a high rate of speed, making Uie best heat by far that ho ever made in his life; although, as the red flag des cended, he barely escaped being caught behind it. Lexington soon after tho heat appeared much distressed, as he had evidently been hard driven, nearly the whole distance; but he recovered well during the reces3. Rube, also, to appearances, af ter the heat, showed evident symptoms that he had been running a harder race than he liked. Lecompte, who to all appearance had run much more at his ease, and with less effort than his competitors, not having been spurred during the heat, was but little distressed, considering Uie great time and the heat of the day. Thcbettingwa3 changed about immediately, not less from the result of the previous heat, than from the great apparent exertion that Lexington had made while running, and tho aspect aud condition of tho horses alter the heat. Rube's chance was considered hopeless with two such competitors a gainst him. Most of the bets now made were for the purpose of hedging, and Lecompte was tho favo rite at 100 to 40 against the field. Each horse came up for the second heat with crest erect, and with a defiant demeanor cast proud glances from fierco eyes, determined apparently to win or die. Lexington, this time, led the way from tho score, for nearly two miles, by about two lengths; when on coming down the stretch and passing the stands to enter on the third milo Le compte, who had been bottled up, commenced his great brush, overhauled Lexington and passed him. Both now did tiieir best, and the third mile was a constant strife throughout for the lead, and Uie quickest in the race, being run in l:40;butLecompte, alUiough so hard pushed, never wavered, but ran evenly and steadily along about two lengths ahead. On Uie first turn of the fourth mile, Lexington, who at Uiat point was nearly up to his rival, for a moment gave back and lost his stride, but he at once recovered it and pushed on with vigor, but with evidently great effort. All was of no use, for Lecompte came home a winner by four lengths, in the astonishing time of 7:383, distancing Rube. The long pent up feelings of Uie nearly phren zied thousands, who for some time had been almost breathless, now found vent, and all, losers as well as winners, ladies as well as gentlemen, shouted and applauded, the magnificent contest, Uie glorious result, and the gallant winner. We yesterday wrote and published concerning Uiis race, "We look to-day for a race, which for time and a close con test, can be matched against any ever run." That prediction has been more than fulfilled, Uie race not only matchinc. but far exceeding any of Uie fleetest of them in regard to time. For more than twenty years the race of Eclipse and Henry, over the TJniou Course on Long Island, on the 27th of May, 1843, was Uie quickest on re cord. The shortest heat in that race was 7:37$. In Fashion's race with Boston, over the Union Course, Long Island, May 10, 1842, the tims was 7:32-7;45. George Martin's fastraco was run in thiafcity on Uie 29th of March, 1843, and the time-was 7:33 7:43. It is a remarkable fact," a3 Leco'mpte is by Boston out of Reel, that his siro suouiu nave run an. xno quicKesi race oi ruamou, and his dam Reel, should, on December, 11, 1841 havcwon a raceTm this city, tho time of which was 7:40 7:ia. . , . . y The subject is so frnitfdl of speculations in regard to timo and blood, that-we must rein in our pen to suit our space, well satisfied that wo have wit nessed the best racd, in all respects, that was ever run, and that Lecompte stands proudly before the world as Uie best race horse ever produced on the turf. summaky: Matarie Course.
