Cirili1' il'e Ili-mlil. The palmy ilnys of the American turf , it has boon'said , were between the years 1815 and 1815. Subso- < | tiont to that ilato the trotting horse began to monoiinlii'.c public attention , ami tin ? vunnhij , ' stock of America wan loss in note and ilemniul , He- ccnlly , when the tlyers of Lorillanl ami 'Keono have crossed the water anil won the IVrhy anil St. from the best blood of old Ki _ nnd when ruur.ing races again form part of the attraction at the best meetings of the country , it is inter esting to turn buck a JMRO or two , and road of the events in which our fathers took a keen interest. Says "Frank I'Vvrestor ' , " wilting in KS57 : "Tlmso great races which 1 esteem worthy of immortality as over was the match of llamblotonian and Diamond or any other match race , if there were over or any other of greater fame , are these of KclipHo and Sir Henry : ol Ariel , dau htor of Kclipso , and Flirtilla ; of Black Maria and the three marcs , knouii as the twcnty-milo race ; of Wagner and Gray I'-uglo , at the Uaklands course , Lexington , and of Itoston and Fash ion on the I'nion course , Long Island. " The first of these was run over the Union course , Long Island , May ' . ' 7 , 18211 , heats four miles , for S'JO'.OUO. The southern gentlemen to name their horse at the starting post. The horses : uo thus described by Cadwallador Colder , Esq. , in The American Sporting Magazine : Sir Henry is a dartl sorrel or chest nut color , with one hind foot white and a small star in the forehead , his inaino and tail about two shades lighter than hia body , fourteen hands , three-and-a-half inches high. Ilia form is compact , bordering on what is termed pony built , and , altogether , tlio exquisite symmetry of his fern indicates uncommon strength ant hardihood. Ho was bred by Mr. Lemuel Lolig , near Halifax , in tlio state of North Carolina , and foaled on the 17th day of Juno , 1810. Ho was got by Sir Archy , son of impmtcd chestnut Diomed , sou of imported Diomed , gianddam by Bol-Air , g. g. dam by I'ilgrim , g. g. g. dam by Valiant , g. g. g. g. dam by Janus , g. g. g. g. g. dam by Jolty Roger , which four last named are imported horses , to bo found in the English Stud Book. Eclipse is a dark sorrel horse , with a star , the near hind foot white , lif- teen hands and two inches in height. Ho possesses great power and sub- htanco , being well spread and full mudc throughout his entire frame , his general mold being much heavier than what is commonly mot with in the thoroughbred blood horse. Although his form throughout denotes uncom mon strength , I conceive him in debted for his great racing powers , continuance and ability equal to any weight to the extraordinary line con struction of his hind , quarters. He was sired by Duroc , a 'Virginia horse , bred by Wade Moseby , Esq. , and got by imported Diomed , out of Amanda , by Gray Diomed' , a son of old Med ley. Eclipse's dam was the noted gray marc Miller's Damsel , got by im ported Messenger. His grand dam , an English mare , imported , when three year * old , in 17SI5 , by William Constable , of Now York , bred by Lord Crosvenor , and sired by PotSos , son of English Eclispo. His g. g. dam by Gimcrack , Gimcrack by Crip ple , and ho by the Godolphin Arabian. Ho was bred by General Nathaniel Coles , of Queens county , Lone Is land , and foaled May 25 , 1814. All horses date their age from the 1st of May , consequently Sir Henry , though not four years complete , car ried 108 pounds. Eclipse , being nine years old , carried 120 pounds. Eclipse was ridden by William Crafts , in crimson jacket and cap , Henry by John W.-ildon , in sky blue cap and jacket. Eolipoo , by lot , had the loft , or in side station. Sir Henry took his ground about twenty-five feet wide of him to the right , with evident inten tion of making a run in a straight line for the lead , a ptirpono which ho ac complished , ami kept the lead , being fully three lengths ahead at the half mile , running steadily with a hard pull , NValden using neither whip or spur. On the last round , as they came in , Eclipse made play , and spur and whip were applied freely by Mr , Crafts , gaining a length and a half , Henry coming in about a length ahead. The time was seven minutes and forty seconds. The horses boio it well , Eclipse the most jaded. It was evident that his rider had cut cruelly , and was incapable of riding him. Ho was accordingly mounted by Mr. I'tirdy. On Iho second start Henry , being entitled to the inside , took the lead , followed closely by Eclipse , whom Mr. I'urdy had brought to his work , know ing that game and stoutness was his play , and his only chance of success lay in pushing his speedy adversary up to the top of his r.ite , and giving tain no respite. Henry wont steadily > n , keeping at ! open gup of about Lwonty . foot between himself and Eclipse , lor about two miles and sov- ? n-eitliths. ; Hero Mr. J'urdy umdo his run , and was close up at the end ) f the thiid niilo. They now entered Iho fourth mile which , bc-gins with a turn or sweep. Tlio oroivu at thin iioint wi iinmonBo. When they got ihoiit one-third round the sweep Kclipho had lapped Henry , head and girth , and appeared in the act of p.-us- int , ' . Mr. Gulden says , "Hero Buck ey vociferated , 'See Eclipse ! Look at I'urdy ! By heaven , on the inside ! ' T "elt satisfied ho had thus hazarded all , [ feared Wuldon would lake advan- : a o of his position , and by reigning in force him ngainst or inside the [ Hilcn. Half way round the swoop the lorsuH were a dead lup , three-fourths omid Eclipse's quarter covered Henry's head and neck , asthoy finish ed the bend and were entering on the straight run Elipso was fairly clear ind ahead. Ho now ktnt tip liis run during the remaining three-quarters of the mile , and eatno in fully three lengths ahead. Au they passed up the last quarter the touting , clap- ping of hiuidn , long and loud applause sent forth by the Kclipao party ex ceeded nil description , it seemed tt > roll nloni ; the track as the horses advanced , resembling the loud and reiterated nhout of contending armies. Time : 7 minutes 4 ! ) sec onds. " Arthur Taylor , a trainer of experience , mounted Henry for the last lio.it. At thn expiration of thirty minutes , as before , the horses were again summoned , I'urdy nnd Taylor mounted , Kclipso taking the load , I'urdy employing the whip and spur from the outset , compelling Henry * if determined to trail , In do at the top of his speed , vithnit kerning uny reserve servo for a run in. Towards the termination of the last mile Henry made u dash , ran up to Kclipso so far as to cover his qiiaiter or haunch with his head , and for a moment luul the appearance of going past. He tnado a seveio Mingglu fnr two hun dred yatds wlii'ii ho foil to the re.xr and gave up the contest , Time , 8 minutes , I ? I seconds. Thus , the three heats , or twelve miles , were run in ' . ' . ' 1 minutes 50X seconds , an average uf 7 minutes , of seconds each heat , or 1 minute , o ! ) seconds per mile ; Ucsides the otiginal stake of Si-'O.OOO each , it is estimated that over Sl0,000 ! ( ) changed hands on this race. Sir Henry , in the last hont , carried 110 pound. ) , and made , though nut yet four years old , thu greatest run yet made in America. The south promptly challenged Eclipse , or any ether horse which mijjht be chosen to run against Henry in thu fall , but was answered by Mr. Stevens that the owner , Mr. Van Uaust , owed it to the association , to the state , and to himself as a man "never on any consideration to risk the life nnd rep utation of the noble animal whose gen orons and almost incredible exertions have gained for the north so signal a victory , and for himself such well earned and never-failing renown. " The portraits of those two kings of the turf occupy the post of honor in therooms | of the Ohio state board of agriculture. They were painted by Edward Troye , tin English artist of renown , who made his home for man } years with Keene Richards , in Ken tucky , painting &ome of the finest horse portraits and equestrian pic tures of his own or any day , among them the equestrian portrait of Gen. Scott at Chopultopoc , hanging in the ipapitol at Washington , but snid to be 'tho property of a citizen of Dayton , 0. , the horse being n pure white Arab barb , imported by Mr. Iticlmrds from Arabia , where the owner himself se lected him. Portraits of Itoston , Lexington and I'lack Maiia , also by Troye , nro among the collection of the late Colonel nel W. M. Anderson , who also owned smaller port raits of Ecliii.se and Henry , disposed of them some time ago. Tin- pair at the state house were bought by Hon. N. .1. Turnoy , of this city , while ho was president of the state board of agriculture , for § 200 apiece , a figure far below their real value then , and vastly below it now , with the understanding that should the board over desire to sell , ho might have the refusal of them at a specified advance on the 'price. They aru master-pieces of handling , the vrholu picture being subordinate to the figure , and when the rosy light from western windows lies upon them with mellow , golden glory of a summer sunset , the old monarchs of the con tinent , sires of a line of licet and staunch racers , seem almost to breathe again the sweet air of meadow pas tures , to hear nfnr oil' the ochos of old triumphs , or listen for the sig nal that summons them anew to trials of speed and endurance , horses ( it to ride "for u man's lifo. " Air. .T. Marsh , Hank ot Toronto , Out. , writes : " 15ilioti8ne.

I'arls Letter from Edward Klnn to tlic ISoston Joiinml. All Europe is in feverish haste to perfect its armament. Nothing like the haste and impatience now mani fested on all sides to get ready for war has been seen in our generation , The Olliciul Journal hero a few mornings ago contained the announcement that sixteen millions of francs had boon voted as an extra credit on ordnance account ; and thin is in addition to a previous special amount of 40,000,000 of francs. Mr. Hotchkies , who is making his cannon for the French marine service has boon asked if ho can not double his already immense works at Saint Denis ; and indeed ho will have to do so , if ho succeed ? with in the next three or four years in turning out the enormous number of cannon demanded of him. Ho ban just concluded a contract for nine hundred more cannon f or eoant defense making fifteen hundred in all that the French w'ill have had of him. This gun which he is making at Saint Denis - is thu terrible cngino which did such deadly execution at Sfax. The French are enchanted with it. Un doubtedly it is destined to revolution- i/.o warfare. It seems as if nothing could stand before it. On some of their now ships the French carry twenty-four of these anus. A torpedo boat would have a lively time while approaching n craft armed in this fash ion. Tlio bold donixons of the assail ing domon-barqucii ils unginu of destruction hidden beneath f ho water's surface , would literally take their lives in their hands , and would most probably IOHO those lives. Itisdilli- cult to say whether or not wo should see a spook of war in all these tre mendous armaments. 'Ilia Z'roneh , as you perhaps know , nro building so many new ironclads that thu English nro beginning to got nervou.- , and to inquire what it all means , Six or eight magnificent war ships are now approaching completion in French ar senals. The Germans have very re cently passed an appropriation to pay for two hundred and twenty-fivo now guns of the Hotclikiss model , which are to bo made in Magdeburg.

The ollicial report of the corn crop of Illinois of hist season strikingly ex hibits the loss inflicted on that state in this MHO crop by the drought. The whole yield was 174,000,000 , bushels , against l fiO,000,00 ! bushels m 1880 and . ' 150,000,000 bushels in 1.S71 * . The deficiency as compared with 187 ! > was 170,000,000 bushels , which , at thu moderate price of 40 cents a bushel , would bo § 70,400,000. It is impossible that so great a loss as this can bo inflicted on the people of a slate without being seriously felt. Illinois is the largest corn producing state in the Union , and Illinois farm ers are exceptionally thrifty and prosperous ; but other states have suffered a similar loss in their grain crops , and if the whole could bo esti mated in figures it would bo an item if serious proportions. The drought was worst in the southern part of Iho elate. Only eight counties in the whole state show an average of 40 bushels to the acre , and they in the central and northern portions. In Iho southern counties the averages are pitiably small. The highest are in I'nion and Monroocounties 15 bush els to the aero. The greater number of counties run below 10 bushels some ti , some 5 , and some ! ( bushels ; nnd six counties show an average of old } * 1 bushel to the acio , which is as near nothing as a farmer can imagine. The average for thu 1)4 ) southern coun ties is only fiJ , bushels , and this on lands capable , with voty moderate cultivation , of yielding 40 to f > 0 bush els , Corn is the chief , and , it may bo said , the only feeding grain used in the west. It is converted into swine , cattle , horses nnd mules. When it is abundant these animals can bo raised almost without limit , but when the crop is short , as it was last year , Iho entire live stock interest reflects the cahi'iiity. P'i'0l > THAT COUGH.
