BUilr, Charles H. Itoed, E. G. Auay, AT DEXTER PARK, YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, there was a very enjoyable private raco be tween Mr. Tom Foley's black colt Tod Cowles and a bright sorrdl colt belonging to a wealthy banker, residing on Michigan avenue. Thero wore only a few gentlemen present, and those wont out for tho purpose of sending their own roadsters around tho track a few times. Mr. Morse's bay horse Torino, an animal that onco showed time down in tho thirties, trotted with the colts for one boat. After two ineffectual starts, tho three were sent away for tho first heat. Tho banker’s nng broke at tho very com mencement. and, being young and inexperi enced, could not bo got down until tbo others wore far ahead. Tho race between Tod and Ferine down tho back stretch and around tho corner whs a very pretty ono, tho horses being neck aud nock all tho time, and go ing at their best. revise dropped off going around ou tho homo strotch, and consequently Foley’s property won easily by over a length in 2:42%. Tho timo aatoniehod Tom moro than anybody else, as bo imagined the colt's best gait to be 2:50. The re sult of tho first boat, however, proved that tho animal is ono of tho best and most promising of our local trotters. He made tho second boat in 2:44%, and again defeated tbo banker’s horse with ease. The latter made two or throo wild breaks, but still managed to got around in 2:48. Tho third heat was won by Tod by several lengths in 2:42%, which la remarkably good timo for tho third mile for a young and green horse. Tho spectators propbecied a good record for Tod in tho fall, and ho was removed to his stall. He is ono of tho squaroet, most reliable, and witbal most stylish, horse at tho Park to-day, and will undoubtedly hold his own among 2:35 trotters if nothing happens to him. The banker’s horso is a good one, but bo needs moro practice and training. AN IMPCOVEMENT in the arrangements on tho track is the removal of the old Judges' stand from between tho run ning and trotting tracks, which was done yester day afternoon by Mr. Joseph Cairn Simpson, who is making preparations for the coming mooting in a thoroughly and masterly way. The stand has been placed outside of the outer track fence, at the rear of tho saloon, and will ho given over to pool soiling and buying. Kiia is the proper place for tho auctioneers and their patrons. It is close enough to the track, and at tho same time sufficiently far away from whore tho main body of tho spectators will sit to save it from tho execrations of those people who ad mire horse-racing, but never bet on it. The view of the track from all tho stands is now en tirely unobstructed. DBXTEII’s DESTINED IUVAL. Tho HopUiuaviilo (Ky.) Conservative, of tho ICth, has tho following to say about a compara tively unknown horso named Dixie, which has sprung up rather suddenly in that State, and which is looked upon as tho “ coming animal": Borne weeks einco we noticed the Bale by Messrs. Bryuut & Baker of Ibctr trotting boreo Dixie, at SI,OOO cubh. Aa Dixie had been used and known up to that lime only as a saddle-horse, having only been handled by a trainer for about two weeks previously, some sueuied to douul tho correctness of tho statement. By way of showing that Dixie was not over-estimated, wo will state that wo have it from reliable authority that the present owner of Dixie has declined au offer of. SIO,OOO for him, and furthermore declares that $26,000 would ho no Inducement for tho young prodigy. Dixie con already trot his mile in 9 min utes and 25 seconds, end, after thorough training, Dexter may look to his laurels. Dexter’s best time is 2:171/, showing a difference of 71* seconds only; whereas Dexter was well matured, properly and thor oughly trained, white Dixie Is young, unaccustomed to the turf j and has only boon under training for about flvo or six weeks. Dixie has as yet made no race, from tho fact, no doubt, that, should he enter the ring of green and untried horses ut Nashville, ho could win at most only a purse of about $l6O, and thou, having made a record, ho would ho excluded from the "green ring” la the fall races of tho East, where the purses do not stop ot hundreds. ■Whatever Dixie moy bo knowu to have accomplished, he cannot, under tho turf rules, be excluded from tho green ring, or the ring of untried horses, until ho has first made a race, and it has been recorded on the turf register. If wo nre correctly Informed, only twenty horses in the whole country have trotted thoir mile under 2:23, and half of those woro of tholtysdik Hamiltonian family, from which we claim that our Dixie haa de scended ; 1. e., Dixie’s dam was by a Canadian hone raised in Bourbon, and brought by N, E. Mitchlson to Caldwell; Dixie’s grand dam was of tho Philip and Komulns stock, mid llomulus was said to have come from the Hamiltonians. Mr. It. I. Hookes, of this place, owns the dam of Dixie and her two-year old filly, and wo learn from Mr, It. himself that hobos just received a letter from Connecticut requesting a full description of Dixie’s dam ; also to know whether he will part with her, and at whrft figures, *Tia truly wonderful how a Kentucky scrub of only flvo or sis weeks’training could have attained so wide a reputa tion. Yet the celebrated trotter, Bob CBlonnls, who in tho rtrst race that ho ever made, entered against the far-famed Lady Jane Suffolk, at St. Louie, and though ho failed to win the race because of breaking, yet in tho odd heat only in which ho was kept down to bis work he made bettor time than Lady June had ever been able to do 011 that track, and in a subsequent race, two weeks Inter, ho beat her fairly. That horse was bought In this State for sixty dollars only. Other horses have been sold ruceutly in our county for as much os Dixie brought. Messrs. Jessup & Moans shipped two to New York einco the sale of Dixie, for which they got SI,OOO each, Mr. Wm, Brown shipped one at SI,OOO to Texas, and has einco sold others at from S6OO to SI,OOO. Mr, James Parish has declined an offer of $5,000 for his trotting mare, Luclle, from Ba con’s Exchequer. Lucile Is young and thought quite promising, and if she is golnjg to make sny man a t ojp. tun® *° fiddly have It /nil to our Roncrmis frlonu Parish an to any gentleman lu our county, f ' ELSEWHERE, i ' ' UNION cmr, JKD. i Special Dievatch to The Vhieatjo 'Tribunt.

THE INTEENATIONAIi AMATEUB UAOBS b&vo produced a result not surprising to those who havo criticised even at a distance the pecu liarities of our American aquatics. The com plete defeat of the Harvard foor-oarod crow, by tho strong team of Oxford, followed by tho over whelming triumph of tho Loudon Rowing Olub over tho ambitious Atlanta boys, has led thought ful amateurs to on investigation of the various methods obtaining among University oarsmen in England. The consequence of this is a determi nation on tho port of the rowing-men of Yolo to adopt an alien stroke, and endeavor by this means to recover tho ground they have lost in thoir contests with Harvard. Wo append the fol lowing correspondence to tho Now York Tribune , which is worthy of Investigation by lovers of rowing t Nkw Haven, Jane 14.— -The groat Interest taken by all boating men In tho usual preparation# far tho col lege regatta is augmented thin year by tho fact that Yale is about to try the experiment of the English stroke. It was felt that there would he groat risk iu attempting a change so radical; but Yale’s iU-succesa for several years aeexned to Indicate something wrong In her system of rowing. Capt, Cook has spent part of the last year at Oxford and Cambridge, ami is now trying to introduce a stroke similar to that used la those universities. I shall endeavor to give some notion of this system, new at least to üb. Ilfs la every respect Just opposite to that rowed by Yale In last year’s regatta. The general principle Is, fast through the water and slow recover. The reach is moderate; the water U taken very deliberately, aa aa to avoid spanking or clipping, end tho oar Is then surged through on the stroke with tho whole strength of the man, Tho logs have to Uko a Tory Important part. In tho beginning of tho stroke tho/ aro drawn up with tho knooo apart, allowing tho body, which la kept perfectly straight, to He between thorn, Tho wclgul Is put into tho oar by first throwing tho body bock and then straightening tho logs, thus moving tho sliding seats about throe Inchon. Tho arms aro not used at all except In tho recover. Tho feather la mado by dropping tho wrists, with tho elbows closo to tho side, and tho hands shoot forward rapidly on tho recover, and .got over thokneoa before the body begins to come forward. Tho men alt low In tho boat so as to do the work as nearly horizontal with tho shoulders as possible, and moke tho boat move steadily on hor keel. This stroke has ono peculiarity which, 1 believe, is condemned by American oarsmen. Tho hands aro held elx or eight Inches apart. By this It Is claimed that what la lost in leverage by removing tho Inside hand toward tho hlado is gained by tho power being applied In a diroot lino with tho boat, bostdo allowing the chost and lungs more freedom. Of tho stroke In general, any Judgment now hoforo It Is trlod la more speculation. But cortaln results aro already noticeable. Tho atroko proves easy on the wind, hut It tells first on the musotcß. Its effectiveness has boon well toatod in England on a long race. Whether enough speed can ho put into It for a three-mile course remains to bo shown. ...111 ...8 3 3 3 3 8 A 4 4 6 6 5 Tho crow now pulls from 34 to 40 per minute; but tho stroke Is evidently a difficult ono to catch. There Is no regular swing of tho body book and forth, rond oring tho tlmo marked and easy, (ho movomont bring quick back and slow forward, compelling tho oarsman to mako a distinction In his motions with every stroke. Tho novel difficulties of this stroke, coupled with thrir confirmed habits In other stylos, mako tho University crow rathor slow In getting into form. The last paragraph is oitbor a savage criticism upon the attempt of tho Yale oarsmen to accus tom thomsolvos to tho 11 Oxford stroke," or olso it displays tho correspondent's ignorance of tho subject. If it is true that, in tho rowing of tho trial crow; “there is no regular swing of tho body book and forth," oto., thou tho. Yale oars men have yet to loam ono of tho fundamental principles of scientific rowing. BASE BALL.
