1e'ftia~wc, the 'fist two heats par.

eW do.iot intend to be understood to

gN the position of being by this ex
*i9W the best in the country. And
to our mindr affords additional
of the fallacious test of time,
ng a horse in so high.a niche-in the
tempe of flame, when every ad:venti
iqns.aid is brought to bear in his be
f.C. On the other hand, none but a
.ery: good horse, under any circun
stances, could run two heats in the
'ine which our summary will show;
rWill it detract from their present
Weition, to support our proposition in
10 ation to qviek time not being a test
f capiability, by citing the proofs to
maintain it. Every one fnailiar with
Louis.d'Or's perfbrmances will at once
agree that he could have run another
Uile yesterda in 1.55, i'n either or
lioth heats, w ich would have made
the-race, supposing at four mile heats,
7.31 3-4!-7.30! rather lively! This

she ever met a foe worthy of her steel,
did so, it was generally believed, by
the accident of her leg giving way,

9? '.7 43. Miss Footo, "the
~it41e steel strap," ran in 7.35 her best
heat. All these named lived and shone
together. Subsequently Verifier ap.
peared. He won at all distances, and
but onee ran under 7 40. Peytona,
who, 'who beat the world-renowned
Fashion, never ran but one heat in the
name time that Verifier made, 7.39 3-4,
Aud that race the New York Spirit of
the Times pronounced the best ev
er run. We might cite numerous oth
er instances in support of our opinion,
bt have perhaps given enogh. Will
any turf'man, or any one else in his
senses, have the temerity to say that
-either of the contending nags in yes.
terdao's race cotuld have lived a min
ute with the horses named above?
In endeavoring to establish our the
ory, wve have wandered fr-om the legiti
-mate matter. The race was beauti
* , ful beyond description. The attend
ance was numerous; the day wvas charm
ing indeed. The course in the most
perfect order we ever beheld it; and
it might seem superfluous to say that
all the horses strip~ped perfect pictures.
Fwmsr HEAT.--A beautiful running
start, Clara in the lead, Louis d'Or lhe
hind, all at a good turn of speed-the
positions during the first mile uun
changed, and also the second mile, bt
the close observer could notice a slight
duerease of speed. On recaching the
back-stretch of the third m'ile, Pieka
way made play, and a beautiful con
test ensued. Clara opened a slight
gap uopon him at the half mtile, btut he
renewed the contest with such vigor
that she was obliged to yield "the
track," in rounding the turn previous
~to comin into the last stretch. Louis,
~ who had been gradually imtproving his
position, nriadle desperate play down the
- tretch. The run home cauzed great
.expitement. Louis almost lapped him
'after passing the drawgates, and but
for, hIs unfortunate peculiarity ofecling
ing to the inner side of the track, it
was thought by many he would
have won the heat-ats it was Picka
'way only, beat 1im by about three
feet in 5,36 4-4.
We forgot to mention, that pr-evious
toisarting Louis d'Or- was favrito a
gainst the field, 100 t0 80. After the
loss of the heat the betting was tun
changed, save that Louis' friends were
Pickaway's rider, Mtr. Stephen
Wtelch, an excellent rider, who rode
Gre) Eagle in his celebrated races with
Wagner, found himself unable ont ae
%unt of his weakness, to manage the
iorse to do him justice, and Abe, Col.
ingaman's boy, was substituted in
SaioND IIhAr.-We conufess our in
ability to do justice in describing this
heat; It was a continued brush fromt
the beginning to its close. Pickawayv
took the lead, determined to muainutaih
it throughbot, Louis d'Or close upon
him, equally intent of depriving him
~fhis laurels. Around the first turnu
they' wer-elapped; uip the back stretcht
ayay they went like twint bullets, a
-' short pull aroiund the turn, and into the
he)mo streotch, at it they rattle awuy.
IPlckaway seems to otutfoot him, lbut
- e renews the battle with unceasing
e~ffort, the second mile being a repiti
nt~ of clie first. T1hme excitemenut of
fze itinitude at this point knew no.

Reciprocal Benefits of land and Rail
Since experience has fully dteon
strated that Railroads are destined to
become the principal means of inland
travel and transportation from point to
puint,. throughout the United States es.
pecitlly, it mnay be well to consider
what bearing the construction of Rail.
roads may have upon the value of
lands (frains particularly,) through
whtelh they may pass; and what ef
feet the extension of these facilities of
transportion must have upon the
price of produce at hoine.
.Farmers are often called upon to
grant the way for those roads, and
many hesitate to do so, fearing that
they will be loosers rather than gain
ers, thereby. To such, in addition to
the article in our colunns upon "The
Illinois Central Railroad," where the
subject is incidentally touched upon.
we would commend the following ar
ticle from the Newark, N. J. Mer.
cury, to their special attention:
"It has been estimated, by those
whose observations has qualified them
to judge correctly, that the increase in
the value of a strip of land three
miles wide, through which a Rail
road is constructed, is sufficient
to build nnd stock it. The experi.
ence of the whole country has
proved that this estimate is not ex.
trayagant. Every mile of a strip of
land three miles wide, one and a
half miles on each side of the road, will
contain 1,920 acres. The average in
crease in the price of such a strip of
land, has been not far from *15 an
aere, in new and thinly settled dis
tricts of country, it has - been- much
more in many instances. This would
be equal to $20,000 increase to ev
ery mile of road; or in other words, if
the ibrmners or owners of this strip of
country should themselves build the
road, their land would be worth enough
moure to pay the whole expense ofecon
struction, and they would own the
road besides. If railroads, therefore,
conferred no other benefits upon far~m
ers than this great addition to their
wealth, they will see that they are
miore deeply interested in their con
struction than any other class of' the
comm unity. They receive a direct, po0
sitive, tangible advantage in the im.
mediate rise in the value of their pro.
"lBut there are other advantages to
the ferming interest beside the rise in
the value of' their farms. The pro.
ducts of a fhirm situated at any coni.
siderable dlist ance from a miarket, where
ordinary roads hauve to be depended
upon, are of value to the prod-ucer, but
railroads at once give thenm a ready ac
cess to market, at gouod prce and
quick sales. The ex perience of farm
ers necar the great centre of popula
tion, is a snflicient proof of the great
audvantage~s of railroad.s in this p)oinit of
view. Indeed, no one has doubt of' it.
The reasons tin' it are too obvious to
n~ed proof' or argiument.
Now, it' this be truth, and there can
be no donbt of' its veracity, does not
it precsent an; unianiswerable3 argumnen tin
faivor. not onliy of' the farimers grant
inig the righ t of way, bu-t rlso of his
beomiing, to the extent of his means a
shareholder in the roatds of h~is neigh
borhtood? If a fourmer owns 100 acres
of' land, worth $8 or $1 0 per- aere, anid
the construcetinig of' a r'ailroad thirouigh
it wotild increase its value from two
thirds to double its or'iginazl cos.t, what
would be thloughit of himt shotild lhe

SOULt AND CunA.---It is generalle
believed that Senator Soule, before ie
cepting the mission to Spain, obtainet
an assurance, from the Exceutive, tha
he should have unlimited pewers fib
the purchase of Cuba. If this mean!
that lie goes out, virtually as a minis
ter plenipotentiary, without any re
striction as to tho terms which he m1a3
promise Spain, but with the reserva
tion that the Government wii now
consider itself bound to ratify suel
pledges, unless agreeable to itself, w,
have no doupt that it is true. But i
the unlimited powers are to be under
sthod as binding the United States tA
accept any treaty he may tegotiate
we regard the rumor as an exaggera
tion, if not a complete f'alsi lication.
It has never been the practice o
this republic to place itself' in the hand
of a single individual, with dictatoria
powers to pledge it for anyv amtountt o
money, or of' any specific line of con
duet. We presume that Soule goe:
abroad with the understanding that he
is to get Cuba it' lie can, on certait
specifled terms, but that if he canno
obtain the ishmiwd ont these terms, h<.
may exceed them, t he goivernmtent
promnisitng to sustaitn himn with an'
reasonab lle bun ds. This' howe ver
is a very diferenit thting fromn thte pop
utiar idea of unlimited powers. It is
v'ery' diffecrentt thing also f roma a pledge
given and received Ibbehand, that
whatever he rom'nises, the Govrnm t en
will sustain him in. No administra

Sergeant-at-arrns of the 86nate was
called up from his bed'by a essenger
from the White House and requested
to lose no time in preventing the de
parture of Senators from W ashington
by early morning conveyances, as the
President had a communication to
make to the Senate which requrrd the
presence of a quorum, that might fail
to attend unless he took measures to
prevent their departure. Senators
Mason and Atchison also were pressed
into the same service, spending hours
on Sunday night in urging their broth
or Senators .nof to take themselves
off As might have been expected,
such urgency In such quarters- gave
rise to.the excitement described above,
The INew York Ilards, whQ are so
hard at it prophocying Mr. Marcy out
of the Cabinet-his presence there
being so exceedingly irksome to him
-were the gentlemen who originated
the story on this occasion, sending
hiin to England-fondly imagining
that the President had at length seen
his error in appointing Mr. M., after
that gentleran's late affiliation with
those shocking bad fellows, the Barn
burners. They telegraphed the fact
right off to the New York Herald,
and indeed right and left over the
country, and drank any unmentionable
number of extra juleps in honor of
their now sure final triumph.
Well, 12 in. of yesterday arrived,
and a quorun of the Senate were of
course present, and the important Ex
ecutive conimit ndcation wis received.
Going into secret session upon it in
stantly, for the Senators themselves
were as terribly bitten by the excite.

the mystery was soon explained. The
President merely nominated James
Buchanan to England, and asked his
confirmation, Mr. B. being very prop
orly indisposed to accept an appoint.
inent which had not been acted on by
the Senate. As no objection could be
made fron any quarter to such a se

was inmediately confirmed. When

ATTEMPTED SULeIDE.-Yesterday, a
little afternoon, a woman was seen on
the wharf next north of the New Or

she leaped into he dock. Some gen

veyed hr to the guaid house, under the
apprehension that if she were left free
she wvould carry out her apparent in
tention of committing suicide.
The tale she told was a sad, and it
is believed, true one. She stated that
she is of a respectable family in South
Carolina-that she came hithier-with
her husband, who subsequently died
that she was left penniless-that she
went to work to earn a subsistence, and
that she received encouragenment from
some of our best peopile. A few~ weeks

"The evidence in the Gardner case
to-day, it is contended, will summari
ly conclude the matter in favor of the

mine, but for the losses incurred in the
destruction of his property, and having
been prevented from working a minec of

of the prosecution has been tco show
that Gardner obtained the award by
meansof an alleged forged title to a
mine, the importance to him ofIPayne's
testimony is argued. Of course, this
will depend uplon tho discrepancies b~e
