O The Rowing latrh Yesterday. or* aiauwtas clcb defeated by the CHI>A TBAKB.H OF 50RKOLK. The boat race yesterday between the above Clubs, was witnessed by many thou -anils of people who crowded the vharve?and vessels ?long the shore of the Potomac and tilled a fleet of small craft tn the river. This race has l>een long talked of. and has excited much comment and -peculation in other cities, as the Aanalos tan- have several other races in pw^rt the coming season. The water of the river was i ?iu te rou?h, but the l>oats pulled willingly out into the stream at the signal ot the umpire, and I took station alongside the upper stake boa** which were on a line with the H street wharf. The course was due south from that point I * Miles and return. After one false -tart, the crew pulled oft at the word "go" which, by the way, is a rather unsatisfactory signal tor the ?tart, as the wind is apt t<> carry ort the sound of the umpire's voice. The tiring of a gun would serve the purpose better. From the start the Chesapeake* pulled a? if to win, gaining almost a length before they had gone past the l*>at house. The shouts from the multitude njx>n the shore cheered the oars men as they passed, and upon their return, the vereantsot the steam whistles and hurrahsof the spectators were deafening. The crew- and officers of the racc were as follows Analostan. of W.ishington?Colors: Blue part.-, wh'te -hirt. blue handkerchiefs. H. M. Gurlev, stroke, weight 146 pouuds: it. L Pres cott.

C. Dickson, bow. weight I4!? pounds. Average weight of crew. 14". pounds. Trainer, Patrick Reagan, of Bos ton. The umpire was Wm. Gilmore.captain of the Ariel club of Baltimore. Time-keepers. Col. C. M Alexander and ltenrv Mutiniii. Judges N. A. Tappan, G. W. Orson,of the Analostans; Jos. T. Allyu and Pendleton T. Moore, o' the Chesapeakes. The general management of the race was en trusted to Mr. Wra. Koach. of the Analo^tan, ami it is only justice to him to say that he was stnctlv impartial. If his natural svmpatl ;es had been with the Chesapeake club he could not have been more particular in seeing that the vinitiiig club had lair play. The time made la the race was l?i minute* and 4 4-5 seconds, the umpire declaring the Chesaj* ikes the win ners. It is irnpo*. ible to make the exact differ ence in the time, as the Analostan* did not pall to the stake-boats on the return, but ran the -jl ftVCe alongside the wharves. Altogether the race MitTiio of THK Board of Firk Csdes emTiRS.? At a regular meeting of the Board of * ire I'nderwTiters of this District last night, Mr. Bramhall, from the special committee, submitted a report on the charge preferred against a member for writing a |<olicy t-?iow the ?vtablished rates, and it w<- otdered that he be notified to b* i-rrscnt next Friday evening to ?>?*0 tne charge. Mr. Burns su*>mitted a ? which was adopted: ??That any mem Sri"Si- he*,. -- "?*" ??? pla.ned of on reasonable i'Itp, h> .... ?
