Heavy Ktornie—The Owens mine —Bendy Belief Yielding" Well. Following is an extract from a letter written by a prominent mining man of the Julian Mining District to a gentle man in the city who is interested in the mineral iudustrits of our county: On acoount of the heavy rain and snow storms of tha past monfh I have lost much time at the mine. It will be two weeks before I cut the ledge, the metaliferous nature of the slate making progress slow, half a foot a day being a good average. lam now in vein matter which is of high grade ore and is indica tions of uear proximity to the mother lode. The workings referred to is a tun nel to tap the' ledge at over 400 feet deep; the ledge above this tunnel bas produced over $150,000 from about 1500 tons of ore, or an average of over $100 per ton. Tbe Owens mine looks better than ever before. In the lower level—3oo feet deep—the ledge opens out large and its ore is exceedingly rich. The Owens boys are in consequence highly elated. No wonder, for they have not reoeived any mouey for their work in a long time; the hist checks that were issued to tbem were dishonored in every place. They now see ore enough of high grade to pay them their wages and the back pay. The bullion yield of the mine has been forwarded to" certain of its owners and the miners paid in dishonored checks, it now seems as if the miners intended paying themselves out of the mine's workings. Tbe Ready itelief mine looks splended Tho Daily boys are now crushing the dump of waste ore —tbat being in the way—preparatory to running a tunnel to cut the ledge at a great depth; the waste is yielding $10 per ton.—[San Diego Sun, Nkw York, Maroh 27.—Five hun dred and niueteen passengers of the wrecked Scotia arrived on tbe sea barge Haggarty at Castle Garden late this afternoon. The scene tbat followed beggared de scription. They rushed into the rotunda pell-mell, shrieking and howling for food like ravenous wolves. They crowded around the lunch tables, climbing over each other and tramping on helpless Women and children, Uproer reigned supreme fur tally two hours. I is customary to register all emigrants btfore tliey enter the rotunda, but the red tape was broken on this oocesion by subjection. The force of tbe lnsss of people was so great tbat the < fficers who were stationed to keep order were swept aside like straws. The seething mass could not be restrained. Su perintendent Jackson gave, orders to give them all the font they needed and charge it to the com missioner of Emigration. Then the distribution of fuod began, but it was impossible to regulate it. Strong men crowded to the front with uplifted arms and their eyes starting from their sockets, crying in Italian, bread! bread! As the surging mob was utter ly unoontrollable, tbe officers at the garden began the distribution by throwing loaves over the heads of Ihe nearest for the others of the crowd. Every time a loaf was fired into the crowd, twenty or more scrambled nnd in some cases fought to get it. This dry bread was a luxury to them. In a short time all tho food was gone; the women and children were then cared for, and milk and beer added to their portion. Tho com plaints of the unfortunate immigrants were most unfavorable to tbe company, and particularly to the Captain of the hcotia, the unfortunates saying they got neither enough fooel or water during the voyage. Sev enty additional passengers, who came by mil from Patchogue, arrived about 9 o'clock to-night. They were transferred from Long Island City hy the steamer J. F. Moore. They were even more ravenous than the others. They were fed at the Garden, a full supply of provisions hay. ing been obtained. Many of the Italians became sick from eating after their long fast. Several writhed in agony on tbe floor of the rotunda. The Winter Wheat. Chicago, March 27.— The Farmers Rtview prints for their crop review this I week the following summary: Dry weather which continues to prevail in Kansas and in portions of Missouri, has ' caused some injury to the winter whea', though very few serious reports of dam age are made, except in tho former State, In Sedgwick aud some of the other southern counties of Kansas there has been very little rain ai"Oe last August, while iv Neosho, Marshall and Saline counties, the prospects aab of a favorable tenor. The reports from Missouri are still favorable.' Tbe Illinois reports con tinue to be favorable and the outlook is still regarded as very favorable for a full averago crop. Santa Ana. The Herald aaya: A movement ia again on foot to bnild a atreet car line from Santa Ana to Orange. It will cost in the neighborhood of $20,000 to build nnd equip the road in good shape. Sev eral parties have professed a willingness to take stock in the enterprise, and one individual has agreed to donate $500 to the company that will build the road. The rich men of Santa Ana and Orange should take hold of thia enterprise and push it through. The following were the exports from (he Santa Ana station for the week end ing March 24th: Eggs, 129 oases, 7630 pouuds; fowls, 8 cuops, 1200 pounds; oranges, 4652 boxes, 332,610 pounds; limes, 153 boxes, 3730 pounds; trees, 120 packages, 7280 pounds; raisins, 630 boxes, 14,800 pounds; wine, 23 barrels, 9920 pounds; honey, 4 cases, 550 pounds; hides and pelts, 430 pounds; wine, 4 cars, 94,000 pounds; general merchan dise, 12,440 pounds. Total, 484,380 pounds. The New England Colony Company has at last closed the trade for the Berry ranch, in the Newport district, which was begun a long time since. The tract contains 1000 acres, and the considera tion was $30,000. Humphreys i Minter were the agents for tbe sale of tbe prop erty, and the matter was closed up this week. A portion of the ranch was sur veyed and divided into ten and twenty acre tracts about a year ago, and one or two houses built, water piped, etc. Quite a number of the colonists will soon arrive from New England. Some have been here a year. Th«> survey of Newport harbor wa' finished this week, and we learn that it is satisfactory and demonstrates that the harbor can be improved so that vessels can enter at any and all times. Maps and tracings have been made of a very explioit character for tbe information of the Government authorities. The work of the survey has been well done, and now it remains to be seen whether Con gress will give us an appropriation for the substantial improvement of this har bor, the only one on the southern coast with tho exception of San Diego. The improvement of Newport harbor is of the first importance to the great nnd rapidly growing Santa Ann valley, dcs tined to be people.!, nt no distant day, with a dense population, needing a sea outlet. Even now hundreds of tons of merchandise are brought in monthly, ns well as thousands of feet of lumber, for the use of the inhabitants. Every day enhances tho importance of Newport, and the time is not far in the future when a line of railroad will connoot the town of Santa Ana with the port and it will theu be iv addition a summer resort. A strong pressure must be brought to hear upon the next Congress to obtain an appropriation for improvement. The Standard says: We acknowl edge the receipt of a copy of tho An nual Illustrated Herald, of Los Angeles, this week, which has just been issued. Like all other productions of that kind which the Herald haa pub lished, it is a splendid pamphlet and a perfect oyclopedia of useful and valua ble information concerning Southern California. The price is only 15 cents. Chicago, March 27. —Receipts of oranges from all points are coming in slower than at the beginning of the week. There is a good supply on band, including a liberal variety of fruit. The market is moderately active and steady, with no material change in prices. Choice oranges are in good demand and have a fair sale while the common are in good demand. Following are the prices quoted hy the official circular: California bright Rivers'des, $3 @ 3.50; do Santa Ana, $2 75 @ 3 00; do Los Ai>geles,s2 75 G>:3 00; do navel oranges, according to qualiiy, $5 00 ® 6; do Duarlc, $3 00 (o 3 25; do Sun Gsbriel, $2 75 (ul 3 00; do blood oranges, fanoy, $5 00 («! 7 00. An Emigrant's Inscription. The following lines were written with pencil on the walls of the old Blandford church, Petersburg, Va., over 100 years ago, by an Irish emigrant traveling through the Uuited States for pleasure. His name was never known. The verses were afterward written on stone, ai d remain a tablet in tho old ruins of the church to this day: Thou art crumbling to the dust, old pile! Thou art hastening to thy fall, And round thee, in thy loneliness, Clings the Ivy to thy wall. The worshipers are scattered now Who knelt before thy shrine, . And'slleuce reigns where tbe anthems rose In days of "Auld Lang Byne." And ssdly sighs the wandering wind, Where oft ln years gone by Prayer rose from many hearts to Rim, The highest of the high. Tbe tramp of many a busy foot That sought thy slslea Is C> r; And many a weary heart around Is still forevermore. How doth ambitious hope take wings; How droops tbe spirit now; We hear the city's distant din— The dead src mute below. The sun that shone upon their paths Now gilds their lonely graves; The neptnrs which fanned their brows The grass Above them waves, 01 could we call the many bank Who've gathered bere ln vain; Who've careless roved aa we do now, Who'll never meet again! 1 How would our very hearts be stirred To meet tbe earnest gaze Uf tbe lovely and the beautiful— The lights of other days I She Knows. Mrs. Langtry was asked the other day what she would advise a girl to do who wanted to out a figure in society. She said that she would advise her not to out a figure, bat that if she insisted she would tell ber to be pretty and amusing if she wanted to suooeed. Mrs. Langtry evidently knows the points which tell in a girl's favor in the social world.—[Ex. MONDAY MORNING. MARCH 28. 1887. SANTA MONICA. Services at ihe Hanta monlra Church—The New fttatue. i The services at the Catholic Church at Santa Monica yesterday were very inter esting aud largely attended. Many of the visitors who came to see tie statu, of Santa Monica were di appointed, be cause yesierday being Passion Sunday, all the statues and paintings outhe Altar were covered. The choir in charge ol Lenard Luy, was composed of Misses liolieme, Gorman, Heury and Collins, aod sang very beautifully a number ot sacred hymns. Father id awe then begau a very eltquent sermon and waa listened to with deep interest. His text was, "Ho that is of God hearsth tbe words ot God, therefore, you hear them not be cause you are not of God. St, John VIII, ohap. 48. How had tha Jews merit ta. this severe reprobation? Ou this very occasion they had iv crowd early in the morning, hastened to listen to the words of Christ. How then justify tbe rigorou. judgment pronounced upon tbem for refusing to hear the word of God. The d fficulty is easily solved. The Jews had listened to the word of our Re deemer, but tbey had refused to profit by them; thoy had beheld his miracles, but they refused to yield to conviotion. Their hearts had been visited by a thousand secret inspirations, but they still persisted in their blindness. This, their refusal to profit by the graces they had received, was tbe c vise of the hard judgment pronounced against them. The tone of severity employed by tbe meek est of men is intended to convey to us an important lesson. The object is to give us an elevated idea of the graces we receive from God, and to inspire us with a salutary fear of being wanting in our correspondence of them. Of all the doc trines which religion presents to man, there is none of greater importance than tbat of Divine grace. Man is necessarily a dependent being in the order of nature as well aa in Ibe order of grace, by his own powers, by his exertion can -never perform a super natural act. By bis own exertion he c m never make his actions meritorious or ren der them worthy of eternal salvation He may possess every virtue in the natural order, but if God makes our actions meritorious in the supernatural, in the mnltitude of the saints who now surrouad the throne of God, there is not o c who does not owe to divine grace all ihe triumphs for whioh he is crowned. If \ they bad not been possessed of grace their heroic deeds might have been re corded iv the perishable monuments of earth, but could never have been in scribed on the pillars of the Heavenly Jerusalem. Consequently God must send bis grace too. And henoe He says wit' out nic yon can do nothing. Without His grace we cannot take tbe least step towards at tainment of our eternal salvation. But if tbe doctrine's grace is humbling to the pride of man, it is, on the other hand, calculated to fill him with hope and con solation. He, himself, assures that He will support us by His grace, that He will give us all the supernatural help tbat is neoessary for us to work out onr salvation. By the death of our Savior all the treasuries of mercy and grace were opened to us. The stream that flowed from the wounds of our Savior THE WRECKED SCOTIA. Her Passengers Taken to Castle Garden," WHERE THEY HOWL FOR BREAD And Become Sick From Eating Ravenously After Their Lous Fast. Associated Press Dhpuches to the Heiald brought spiritual riches among us. How many are the graces we have received through the efficacy of the precious blood? In ftie sacramcnfs how com pletely are all our wants supplied. If we have offended our Heavenly Father ask forgiveness. Are we suffering much attiiotion, He says in the sacraments of lite "Come to Me and I will refresh vqu." Not content with dying for us He would still be with us to support aud encourage us, would daily renew the scene of Calvary on our altars. Even on tne bed of sickness, even in the midst of the perils of death—when the whole world abandons us—God comes to our relief, provides ns with support and strength aud pours the balm of consol ation into our dying bosoms. Even when you fl>d from God, when yon pro voked Him by sin, His mercy was iuces saully calling you to repentance. In the ! midst of your follies, did yon ever feel emotions of apprehension and alarm? It was God's grace which thus spoke to your hearts. Brethren, if you are still unmoved; unchanged, say not that God's graces have been wanting. If you are not progressing in the way of salvation; if your hearts are at a distance from God, you must not attribute it to the want of grace, but to the abuse of it. The Father then discussed the conse quence- of the abuse of grace, and said thit men who were abusing the grace of God were given over to their passions and lusts. If we continue to abuse and neglect the gifts of heaven God will withdraw his powerful helps as He w ihdrew bis graces when vre produced no frtflt, and be will prouounce against us the dread sentence which he addressed to the barren tig tree: "Cut it down. Why cumber it the ground?" My brothers", scrutinize your past con duct. Rigorously examine what has been your correspondence to the graces you have received? If your conscience condemn you ponder well the conse quences of continuing to abnse them. Think well what would be your situa tion were God to leave you. The statue of Saint Monica is four feet high and is carved out of ivory. It was made in Brussels and purchased by Mrs. Ponet, who presented it to the church. The statue was blessed by Rt. Rev. Bishop O'Connell on the 18th inst. The Orange Market. SANDERSON STEEL WORKS Rnrned While the t'irn Drpatt ineut was Elsewhere Engaged. Syracuse, N. V., March 27.—The Sanderson Steel Works, in Geddes, a suburb of this city, were destroyed by fire at 1 o'clock this morning. Tbe wind was blowing a gale at the time, aud the tire department was engaged at a fire in another part of the city. In an hour the buildings were in ruins. The loss is upward of $220,000. The property belonged to the Sanderson Company, of Sheffield, England, who started the works in this city two years ago. . No Treaty signed. New York, March 27.—The Wash ington correspondent of the Tribune says that tho alleged extradition treaty with Russia, which was published in the World, is generally believed to have been drawn merely as a basis of treaty negoti■ ations whioh have been going on fori many years, bat so far without success. Bayard says that no such treaty has been' signed. Alexander Cregot, first Secre tary of the Russian legation, also sayai that oo treaty has been signed. Transcontinental Travel hs., • limed. Bismarck, Dak., March 27.—North, era Pacirio trains crossed tbe river bridge trestle here to-day for the first time in eight days. The water has been falling for three days and is shallow on tbe low' lands. Another flood is expected when the gorge at Washburn breaks, but the Nonhern Pacific's precautions will pro vent any further suspension of trans continental travel. Witchcraft, aod the belief in evil spirits, is evidently aa strongly ingrafted upon the religious doctrines of the Apaohes as it was upon that of our own race in days agone, as the following oir oumstances, which happened a few days ago in this valley, will ahow: An Apache Indian near the headgate of the canal haa been seriously sick for a long time. All the noted medicine men have been employed from time to time to treat him. At present the great medioine men of San Carlos are attending him. Some of them begin a low chanting song at nightfall, breaking out now and then in a wild, weird refrain. Thia tbey keep up all night, white the chief medioine man puts in the night blowing smoke over the sick man, and cutting Img gashes with a sharp knife, pretending to draw worms therefrom. Night before last they concluded that their patient was bewitched by a sixteen-year-old msidep j squaw named Calve, and determined npon her death. They brought her into camp, but that night she escaped, but was brought back the following day, hung up by the hands and preparations began to be made to disembowel her on that night. The squaw's mother, who could not overcome her natural parental feel ings of affection, even to aatisfy the de mands of ber traditional religious beliefs ih witchcraft, came down crying to Mo hawk and related the circumstances. Captain F. W. Smith and O. W. Norton hitched up a team and went up and res cued the intended victim.

Smallpox in New York. j The smallpox appears to be getting a pretty firm foothold in the cities of New York and Brooklyn. There is quite a number of centers of contagion, and new cases are constantly being discovered, fhe question of declaring the disease epidemic has been discussed, but tbe opiutou is tbat it has not yet reached 1 the epidemic stage. In view of the vigorous methods employed to stamp it out it may not reach that s age. The people are being rapidly vaccinated, and sanitary regulations are bsing rigidly enforoed. When it was proposed a day or two ago to declare the disease epidemic it was stated that such a declaration would Cause the city to lose §1,000,000 worth of trade a week. Tbat statement is clearly au exaggerated oue. The newspapers publish all the facts relating to the progress of the disease, whether it is declared epidemic or not, and tho publio learns nothing new from an official declaration with regard to it. If the newspapers were disposed to sup press the truth the announcement of the existence of an epidemic would serve to inform people of tbe extent of the disease. The policy of suppression, however, no longer prevails, even in ihe smaller cities. It is deemed much the wiser plan to let the public kuow what the truth is in order that they may aot in accordance witb their own ideas of their duty and interests. Smallpox is a difficult disease, before it beoomes epidemic, to deal with, be cause of the disposition of those in whose families it appears to conceal it. They dislike to out themselves off from their friends and acquaintances. In times of trouble they want sympathy and sup port more than ut any other time, and to isolate themselves by the announcement tbat they oaunat be approached witb safety is a bard thing for them to do. Two months more cf cold weather may be expected in New York, and as smallpox is a cold weather disease it will olaim many victims there if its present rate of increase is maintained until the warm weather acta as a check upon it. The penalty for concealing smallpox oases ought to be a severe one.[ —Ex. Almost a Human Sacrifice. It is manifest that the fruit-growers of both Florida and California will not be satisfied until they have .at least given the plan of selling their products at auc tion a thorough trial. The Florida Fruit Exchange, has instructed its Oeneral Manager to decline to reoeive vegetables for shipment, and proposes now to de vote itself vigorously to the formation of "auxiliary societies" throughout the State, in order to control the distribution of tbe orange orop. The California Fruit Union displays equal earnestness and energy. It has scoured important concessions from the railway oompanies, under which it will probably - soou be 'enabled to ship fruits East at one and one half oents iper pound, with quick time. It haa also established uniformity in the size of fruit boxes, and, having fully de* termined to give the auction plan for disposing of its fruits a systematic trial, is now making arrangements to that end in E .stern cities.

Yesterday afternoon another horrible acoident occurred a short distanoe from the Southern PaciHo freight depot. Abqpt « o'clook in the afternoon Ai. Yager, a teamster for a brick yard here, was run over and killed by a switch en gine and two oars. The unfortunate man was about to leave this city for Or egon, and there seems to be but little doubt but he lost his life through hts own carelessness. It appears from a statement made by wituesses, tbat the engine wu backing down the track to ward the freight depot and waa pro ceeded by two flat oars. A street car, on which the unfortunate roan was rid ing, was rather near the track, and some of the passengers becoming afraid jumped off. Yager jumped on the wrong side, on to the track, and was knocked down by the flat car. When tbe horrified people who witnessed the accident ran to his aid, it was found that the wheels of the two cars and tbe locomotive had cut hia body low several pieces, strewing them seversl feet apart. Tbe engine was stopped as soon as possible, bat the unfortunate man's leap was so mdden that neither the brake unan nor the engineer had time to apply the brakes before the man was knocked down. Had he remained on the street car as did most of the pas sengers, there would have been no ao ctdent. Another account of Ihe aocident was that Yager waa on bis way to the depot on foot, and seeing the train backing down the track hurried np to cross, but a street oar coming between him and tbe crossing, he jumped on tbe wrong side and was knocked down by tbe flat car. Whichever way the accident occurred it appears that the trainmen were not to blame in tbe matter. The bell Of the engine was riugiog, as it customary, and the train w«s going at tbe ordinary slow rate of speed when crossing the streets. The remains were taken in charge by Coroner Meredith, and nn inquest will be held this morning. When they were lid out on a slab it was evident tbat there was hardly a part of the body, ex cept tbe head, wbich had not been in jured by the wheels. Officer Bjtello ar rested the engineer, J. A. Heinman, and W. R. Smith, tbe firemau, and Morris Thompson, the brakeman. They were charged with manslaughter, but were re leased iv their own cognizance upon the application of Gen, E. E.

It was while in this spirit that they came to tbe river of Kadesh-barnea, and within sight of the promised land of Canaan, but instead of crossing the stream, pushing on ahead and taking possession of thst that be longed to them, tbey hesitated, then quar relled, rebelled, turned back, and it was thirty-eight years before they again got back to Kadesh-barnea, and during these long, wtary years ihey experienced some pretty tough times. We have all reached Kadesh-barnea at least ouce in our lives. I have been there quite a number of times. Once I reached the river during the Civil War, but I was a mere lad, full -of glory and conceit and I said to myself, there is plenty of time to cross, no use of being in a bursy, so I paused and let things take their course, and before I waa aware of it the war came to a close and I fouud myself far from the goal of my profession. Years afterward, when I became a man of business, I agaiu reached Ka desh-barnea, but I said what is the need of crossing now; I am doing well enough, and I will enjoy the day and make the most of it. I will live up to my income, take life easy and cross Ihe stream to-morrow. But to-morrow never came, though the financial panic of 1872 did, aod drifted me back, far back from Kadesh-barnea, Again I wandered fer years in the wilderness until I finally dropped into journalism, snd before I expected I was once more before Kadesh-barnea. Well, says I, there need be no great rush, 1 have already a tine reputation aa a writer, and am solid with my fellow man. I can cross any time and reach tbe promised land. But I did not cross all the same. I kept putting it off day by day, taking things easy and living on tbe strength of former success until the lirst thing I knew some other writer had taken my place as a public favorite, and when I fully realized my situation I found myself again in the wilderness, far away from Kadesh-barnea. W r ill I ever reach Kadesh-barnea again! Well, it is pretty hard to say, and even if I should will I have the good sense and strength of character to cross over and take tbe advantage of the op portunity offered ? Ab, that's the ques tion. Who has not been ts Kadesh-barnea some time in bis life, yet how few have ever crossed over and taken possession of the bright land beyond ? "There goes a man now who once reached Kadesh-barnea, but failed to cross. Never a man started out with such bright prospects. He had money to back bim in every enterprise and friends to encourage him in every effort, but when he reached Kadesh-barnea be paused, and finally drifted backward and became a wanderer in the wilder ness, and to-day, instead of being a man of high standing and great wealth, he is an outcast on the face of the earth—a curse to humanity and to him self. There is an actor now playing in one of our dime museums. Never a man started out with better opportunities than he. He wat bright and brilliant; both the publio and the press were lond in their praise of him. Bnt when he came to Kadesh-barnea he found life so fascinating that he said: "I will drink and be merry with onr friends to-day; there is time enough for me to cross to-mor row." Bat he never crossed the stream. He lingered and lingered on this side, and then went backward and backward, from good to bad and from bad to worse, until to-day he is only a wreck of bit former self and is glad to get an odd en gagement, even at the dime museum.

Associated Press JJlsnatcbes to tbo Hnau, i Loudon, Marsh 27.—Tho Coronet ar rived off Qieenatowo at 1:39 o'eloefc this morning. Nothing has been seen of tbe Danntless. Tbe Coronet pases li the winning point at 12:35 o'clock, on— der a full press of canvas. The wind was west-north-west and fresh. In pass- ing the given line, Roehe'a point, victo rious, the yacht tired five guns, and tbe time wat at onoe taken by the Seev retury and the members of the Royal Cork Yacht Club, who hud been on the lookout for her arrival. The ctob tbaat hoisted the signal announcing tbe Cor onet's arrival, various stations answer ing. The wind was blowing hard, aad the Coronet entered Co k harbor io. spauking style, with all sails act and hag' ging the west shore. From start to n..iaa the Coronet experienced strong gaits, with tremendous seas. On Tuesday aad Wednesday last she hove to for several hours each dsy and made only ninety miles in forty-eight hours. Th« av>r« w a> run during tbe pa-sane, varied lrom 239 to 250 miles a diy. The ppar tut oue occupied in tbe passage is fourteen days, twenty thtee hours, tbirty-four minutes, sixteen seconds, and tbe actual time computed ou the Greenwich basis, four teen days, nineteen hours, thirty seven minutes, fourteen seconds. The wbotV number of nautical miles sailed is Tbe longest days' run is 291 57 miles made ou Saturday, Murcb Boifc t and the shortest, 38 8 miles made oat Tuesday, March 221. Tbe weather was uncommonly stormy even for thia season of the year, no less than seven gales contributing to keep the sea ia* ferment for eleven days of tbe trip aad for two days the weather was to severe' as to make the question 1 of tbe yaobt's living through them somewhat doubtful. She behaved splendidly, however, in alt sorts of weather and proved herself one of the stannchest, if not one of the fast-' est vessels of her size afloat. No acci dents happened to any of the sailors, des pite the great risks they were compelled to undertake at times. With the excep tion of three torn sills and a little broken tackle, everything on board of the boat was in as good a shape when the anchor was dropped off Queenstown as when [| waa raised off Tompkiuaville, Stataa Island. It is thought that a mncK quicker passage might have been made) had Captain Crosby carried more sail on several occasions when the wind was light, but the sky threatening. He waa very cautious, and his judgment was controlled by the barometer, which waa much of the time below 29° aad seldom above 30°, the nominal haight Tbe course was made a Uttte miss northerly than was thought safe, bat fortunately no icebergs or field-ioe were encountered. The number of persons on board tho Coronet was twenty-nine, inoluding six teen sailors, five officers, steward, cook, mess boy and five guests. The officers were: Captain, C. P. Crosby; naviga tor, T. B. Anderson; mates, W. A. Whittier and Otto Roberson; boatswain. Augustus Borgholm. Tbe Coronet people believe that the Dauntless will be 24 to 30 hours later ia arriving. Captain Anderson says the weather wss tbe worst he has ever expe rienced in all his 174 Atlantic passages. New York, March 27.—Bnab, owner of the Coronet, says he will challenge the Dauntless to race baok to this port. The rooms of the New York Yacht Club were well filled to-day with meat, bers of the club discussing the result of the ocean race between tbe Coronet and the Dauntless. It was the generally ex pressed opinion tbat the race settles the fact of the Coronet's greater speed and the superiority of ibe new style yachts over those built after old models. Many, however, of those present seemed uclined to with hold their opinion until further particu lars of the race could be obtained. It was thought there might be some acet dent which prevented the Dauntless from doing her best. There were signs of r.gret for "Collie" Colt, whose yacht was rather a favorite with tbe club.
