NEW YORK HERALD. 3?B?IB=S= ' 1 . , I B. New York, Krl'ltf, Jane 7, IH4*. Ifext iltwi from EngUnd. The next news from England will be very inter VBUItfl AUV DK?IIICI AvOUlB IS I1U W WUl 1111 CC days. By her we expect some bitter and violent demonstration of the English government and preaa against this country, on account of the Texns annexation project, <tec. Also, the result of the debate in tha House of Commons on the new currency plan. Also, the further rise or fall in the price of cotton, and the bankruptcy or fortunes of dozens. IVt mean to run an exclusive express, and to beat the whole field, if any dare enter. Opening of the Next Presidential Contest. The contest for the next Presidency may now be said to be fairly opened in Congress?in the newspaper press?in public meetings?und throughout the whole country, as far as we have heard from * as yet The nominations of both parties are before the people, and during the next four or five months the discussion must go on, and public meetings must be held on both sides, and the popular mind be canvassed, in order to prepare all for voting at the election next fall. According to all appearances, this contest will be one of the most spirited?one of the most equally matched?and one ol the most curious that has taken place in this country for a great many years. We have seen the unanimity and enthusiasm and impulse which have animated the Whigs up to the nomination of Mr. Clay, and which continue to preserve them in an unbroken phalanx. This unanimity gave them a manifest superiority over their opponents, the democratic party, until the latter made the nominations at Baltimore, and the people began to indicate their views on that nomination, all over the country. It is very evident now, since the nominations of Polk and Dallas, that all the dissensions and disturbances which have agitated that party for the last two years, will be completely lulled in a few weeks, and that they will present a , more united front and a more determined spirit than any one had reason to expect, and in this particular they seem to be occupying very much the same position as did the whigs in 1840, who presented the same differences ot opinion, and the same astonishment on the nomination ot General Harrison, which was so quickly succeeded by unexampled unanimity ot feeling. The recent meetings of ratification which have been held in the various large cities, towns and villages troin which we have heard, furnish fresh evidences of the strength and torce with which the democrats intend to come into the field. In Raltimnre?in Hiehmond?in Philadeluhin?in Washington?in New York?in Boston, meetings of ratification have been held, and according to the most authentic accounts they have been very Urge and powerful meetings, and present the means of contesting the victory anticipated by the democrats, in a very imposing light. In Congress also, they have commenced the discussion of the personal character of the new candidates with a great deal of iorce and spirit. The whigs in Congress, it would appear, from the animation of the recent debates, are somewhat alarmed at the state of things presented in the ranks ot the democratic party, and seem tolerably well convinced that it will require a great effort to elect their man, Mr. Clay. All the regular business of Congress appears to be neglected, for the members being engaged in hunting up objections to the various candidates, and making personal attacks on the representatives of the opposing principles and measures?and all the other stump speeches of electioneering which distinguish the men now in Congress. The remainder of the session will, of course, be occupied by the delivery of stump speeches ; and a cue will be given to the whole country j so that, immediately after the adjournment, on the 17th of this month, a general movement of the two parties will take place throughout the Union, and the general con..Ill k- U. ?l.-* J ion win uc wugcu iui iiic iivjii x icoiucuuy. [n this contest, we already perceive that the people of the United States will be divided into two great and powerful factions. A third party will not be heard of. Captain Tyler is as effectually covered with the waters of oblivion as Joe Smith, in relation to the contest for the Presidency. We do not believe that even the abolition candidate, Mr. Birney, will receive so many votes in the free States as his party have polled during the last two or ihree years ; for it is generally believed that the odor of sanctity which floats around Mr. Frelinghuysen,and the great aid which he has rendered to the abolition of slavery, will concentrate in the whig ticket all the sensible forces of the abolition party in the free States. We shall, therefore, have a more equal division of the people ot this country, in the ensuing contest, than has probably ever taken place since the great contests between Jefferson and Adams, and some of their immediate successors. Suoh being the position of things at the commencement of the contest, we must admit that the result?notwithstanding the first impression made by the nomination of such unknown men as Polk and Dallas?will be more doubtful, and more determined by tact, skill, and eflort than any contest that we have seen. If Mr. Clay is to be elected, his friends must work very hard. They have not a moment to lose ; they have not an hour to waste in injudicious effort. They must bring out all their electioneering apparatus?their orators?their travelling preachers?their itinerant minstrels? their poets, too, must go hard to work and furnish new songs, for the old ones are only waste paper. The democrats may take the same advice, and we see that they are not idle. In the meantime, as we are placed on high and independent ground, overlooking both camps, and spying out the position and movements of both armies, we shall take particular care to report progress at stated intervals, and to give the operations of both belligerent camps with the greatest accuracy and impartiality. At present every thing is full of preparation?doubt, and difficulty, on both sides, notwithstanding all the affectation of confidence, hope, and assurance of success which they show to their several adherents. War on the Arpi.g Women.?One of the most strange, extraordinary, peculiar, exciting, warlike scenes was exhibited in the Park the other afternoon?one that beats all hollow the Rhode Island war, the Heidelberg battle, or the great Croton fight?one that will bo remembered and transmitted in song and story, as long as the present fathers of the city and their great grand children reside on terra firma. It was nothing more, nor nothing less, than a war of the present City Corporation upon the poor widowlesa, fatherless, and motherless pie and apple women of the Park, who, for years past, have attracted the sight, and disturbed the longings, of the juvenile portion of society, by the exposure and sale of parched corn, pea nuts, apples, oranges, and molasses candy. .Seven large stalwarth, ravenous looking marshals were selected as the combatants, w ho, to the astonishment of the bystanders, the city at large, and the world in general, demolished the apple stands, and drove the poor crying occupantn, with their barefoot, hntless little ones, into the street. Talk about reform after this! ask why your streets are filled with filth?enquire why pickpockets crowd your avenues?wonder that your houses are broken open, and your property stolen?hint about city relorrn, and you will receive for an answer, " havn't we commenced in earnest?havn't we abolished the pic women, and extinguished the appl# stands, and what shall we do next." Huira, hurra, who's afraid. Bot* Ways.?The ship Godwin sailed from Philadelphia on Wednesday for Liverpool, with nearly three hundred steerage passengers. Ship* daily arrive here with an equal number from IT.nn,. JSurojxi. ? ] Tharlow Wood?Bishop Hughes?Governor beward?The Natltm^-THc Public Schools. The Pope and the Bible. We have been watching with a good deal of interest the columns of the Evening Journal, the organ of Governor Seward and Thurlow Weed, for the purpose of ascertaining what they would say, or how they could get out of the labyrinth of difficulty into which they plunged themselves by their conduct in the School question in this city, and iheir labored and protracted attempt in connexion with Bishop Hughes, to carry out their miserable IHilitical intrigues to catch votes front the party opposed to them. On the publication of Bishop Hughes' last letter of ribaldry, falsehood, folly, and the most vulgar coarseness, we find that Weed, j who is a sort of under-strapper of the inquisitergeneral of New York, has the followingparagraph: Bishop Hushes' Second Lett** ?The letter of Bishop Hughes, which we publish to day deserves, not less fur its tone and temper, tnen for the facts it contains, a careful, unprejudiced perusal. The public mind has been misled and deluded in relation to the questions which elicited this controversy. There has been gross misapprehension with many, and deliberate misrepresentation by many others ; and among the latter class the Jllhany Jlrgue, Journal of Commerce and New York Herald stand most conspicuous. Truth has been obscured by falsehood. But this delusion, dark and deep as it is, will ultimately pass away, for "truth is mighty and must prevail." The proposition ofOov. Seward, prompted by an active and enlightened philanthropy, sought the education oi children whose parents, either from poverty or prejudice, were bringing them up in ignorance and vice. Bishop Hughes, on his return from Europe, actuated by motives which should have commended him to the respect and confidence of all good men, seconded the Governor's benevolent effort. The children referred to, for the most part, belonged to the most destitutu portion of his pastoral charge. Instead of desiring, as we had been taught to believe, that they should grow up in ignorance, he entered warmly into the effort to bestow upon them the blessings of a Common School education. And this object was to have been accomplished without the slightest interference with the conceded usefulness of the public school society. The bill introduced by the Hon. Mr. Vemplance would have raised ten thousand children from idleness, ignorance, and crime, without in any manner disturbing the organization of the Public 8cliools. This, and this only, was the design of Gov. Skwahd and Bishop Huohks. And we are as incapable now, as we were then, to understand why Philanthropists and Christians resisted this effort. Education surely makes better Citizens and better Christians. Indeed, Education is necessary to enable the human mind to discern the true from the false Faith. As Protestants, holding that light dispels darkness, instead ol opposing the Education of Catholic children, we should have regarded it as a triumph ; for |when the mind is imbued with knowledge, and tnen only, are men capable of judging for themselves. Let it be remembered always, that this question has, by means ol perversion and falsehood, lost all its original features For its political and sectarian character, it is indebted wholly to our opponents Neither Governor C- _J IJ. -l II .1. I ,1 Li .r ... orwMT? nor uisnnji iiu^nrs ever yi uyumra ai "j tabliahinq Sectarian School* They only asked for the extension of the Common School Law of the State, over the city of New York, that neglected children might be gathered into Schools free from sectarian teachings and influences. Nor did either of these distinguished men, as is falsely alleged against them, attempt or desire to "drive the Bible from our Schools." A more impudent and atrocious attempt to mislead the public mind?to misrepresent facts?and to escape from that general condemnation which the good sense of the community has heaped on Weed, Seward and the whole of them lor their conduct in this matter?it would be difficult to imagine. It is well known to every one who can read that Governor Seward, induced by his man Weed, was the first person to introduce the agitation of the Public School question into the politics of this State; and it is also well knotvn, that the object was to carry out a mean and miserable intrigue of humbugging the Irish people of this city, who happened to have a considerable vote in the election. Whether Bishop Hughes knew the motives which actuated " one of the best of men," as with crusl irony, he styles Weed and Seward, we cannot tell. But the Bishop adopted from them the movement, and carried it on in various shapes and forms, until he committed himself openly to the indignant criticism of the American people, by attempting to organize his flock as a political party for a special purpose in Carroll Ilall. And here was the first open and daring attempt to introduce sectarian influence for the purpose of controlling legislation,and establishing sectarian schools,which Thurlow Weed has the audacity in this article to deny. Bishop Hughes never hesitated to declare that his object was to establish schools for the "poor fnrlnrn nf hin flnrk in Ilia rharnnfariafin mock-pathetic style,?as he called them?schools to he founded on religious opinions in conformity with the Catholic faith and Catholic principles. We need not say (hat in this country, where happily there is no estab'ished church, the Catholics are but a sect, and a minor sect too. And never till the agitation commenced by the Bishop, was any fault tound with th? Public Schools by the Catholics. These admirable institutions gave universal satisfaction, and by no class were they more properly appreciated than the Catholics, until the Bishop raised his outcry about the Protestant Bible, and insisted that sectarian schools for the instruction Catholic children should be erected. Then it was discovered for the first time that the schools and school books were not fit and proper for the instruction of the Catholic children. The whole thing was a political intrigue from beginning to end? a miserable piece ol humbug for the purpose of catching a few Irish votes, and all ton, done under the garb of sanctity?under the specious plea of ardent zeal for the education of the " poor, forlorn children;" to whom all the benefits of the Public Schools were free and open. Who ever denied? who ever dreamed of denying to the children of Irish parentage these benefits.l No one. No?no. Thurlow Weed can never hope to escape from the odium and indignation which justly followed that great error of his political life. But it was quite natural.to ex|?ect such a piece of miserable humbuggery to originate in the mind of a man who, out of the murder of Morgan of Batavia, fomented the bitter passions of the West, until he created a pany, uu wihuii uc ruuc uuu sume uuuot^iucuuc.?? The charlatan who could, out of the death of Morgan, divide and distract whole communities?defame a venerable, benevolent association, and construct a step for himself to leap into consequence, was very fit, indeed, by the creation of a false issue about education, to distract the peaceful operation of the Public Schools of New York, and instigate a silly and vain Bishop to put the ban upon the Bible ?the Protestant Bible?and lay the foundation for all those movements which have originated a new party in this city?occasioned burnings, murder, sacrilege, and every sort of violence in Philadelphia ?and done more than any thing we have ever yet seen to excite prejudice against the Irish and the Catholic faith. All thesesad results may be traced, with the accuracy of mathematics, back to Bishop Hughes, Thurlow Weed, Governor Seward, and all the advisers and consulting agents ef that particular rliqut of saints, who will, we suppose, receive full absolution for all their sins, from his Holiness, the Pope, by the next arrival from Civita Vecchia, and after their death, shine with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, in the calendar.

It is, and will continue during the season to be a divine spot?a little earthly paradise, but on yesterday it was under the immediate auspices of Flora. There was something about thescene, something that chained you to the spot, that turned your glance into a gaze, and kept you peering through the variegated tints of the carnations, the gorgeous lineaments of the crocus,and the fragrant luxuriance of the rose, that'put one in uiind of the plains of Cashmere, of "Arabv the blest," or some of those delightful vallitM of the mn, The tint of Indian lands he unilea upon. What constellations ol grace! What corruscattona of beauty! The goddess must have been there herself in propria persona. Be that as it may, none but herself or some very clever deputy could superintend arrangements lor such an effective display What u blessing such an exhibition would be if it were lasting?if we had less of politics nd more of horticulture?if we could exchange the flowers of popular eloquence tor those ol Flora, we would have a plentiful scarcity of bad temper, and worse taste. If Niblo could but tickle our olfactory nerves with such odoriferous influences as those of yesterday, and take our visual organs cuplive, he would make many new believers in such a thing as a terrestrial paradise, and do more to exhilerate our system than all the puff-powders and patches in the materia medira. New York Historical Society. A meeting of thi9 society very numerously attended, was held at their rooni9 in the University Tuesday evening. The Hon. A. Gallatin presided. The Secretary read the minutes of the meeting of May 7th, which were accepted. Several donations of books were announced? among the rest two volumes of the Kentucky State Taws from the Secretary of State. Letters were read from Sir W. A Hamilton, Professor of Astronomy, Dublin, acknowledging the honor of membership conferred upon himj from Sir J. Bickerstone Williams, L.L.D., F.K.S , to the same effect: from Mr. Alexander Vattemare and K.. Walsh, ISsq., of Paris, through the latter ol whom the Minister of Commerce intimated thai 86 volumes of the statistics of the several departments of France were at the service of the society. Mmiy other letters were read from distinguished individuals in various parts of the world, all expressive of the high opinions of the writers as to the character and objects of the society. Several new members were admitted into the association, and the names of a great many others submitted, amongst the rest that of the Hon. Augustus C. Murray, whose travels on this Continent have made his name fami liar to most readers; he presents, however, another slight claim on Americans, as being the grandson of a former Governor of Virginia. The Committee on Names reported verbally, through one ot their members, that after a mature examination of the map of a section of this State, presented by G. C. Verplanck, Esq., they had a high opinion ot its value and were persuaded that it would prove of much interest, and throw great light on obselete and unknown names. Mr. John W. Edmonds then arose for the purpose of reading to the Society a paper, entitled "some passages in the life of Governor Tompkins." Mr. K. commenced by stating the Uigh place in which the subject of that paper stood in his estimation, ami expressed his regret at being unable to compile a historical trentiae adequate to render justice to the nigh and important position heoccupiedin relation to the thrilling ev?nls and momentous circumstances ?f his day end country, especially this Htate. To show this connection, Mr. E. took a review of the most marked operations ot the lale war with Britain ; drew a graphic picture of affairs in this country at its breaking out?the difficulties which surrounded the patriotic efforts of government on all sides, and the admirable energy, decision and intelligence displayed by Gov. Tompkins on that trying occasion. The exchequer was low ; national ciedit unavailable ; the spirit of the militia lar from enthusiastic in a cause requiring vast sacrifices and ottering few inducements ; yet, in the inidst of all these obstacles, Gov. Tompkins, with an indomitable energy, found means to provide for the delence of this city against the threatened hostile attacks ol England, and whirii were thereby averted. Mr. E's papi r comprised a very lucid synopsis of military operations on the Canada frontier, which was interspersed with correspondence between Gov.Tompkins and thefcommanders of the United States force in that service Those letters nfforded much light 011 the true state of the belligerent forces then opposed to each other, and while they serve to bear a testimony to the unconquerable bravery that contended with ultimate success against the most adverse for. tune, and with a'paucity of means; they serve mo?t faithfully to show the pureneasof motive, the high honor, the unsullied patriotism, aud inexhaustible resources of Gov. Tompkins, who, as the eloquent lunguage oljthe paper set forth in conclusion, had the highest rewind, the conscious" Ufa "mil snnnf on,I n innnillTlAnt in thn heart* of hi* countrymen A hunt of applauae followed the concluding sentence of the discourse, of which a copy was requested from the author by the Society lor preset vatiou among theii transactions. A motion was then made and passed, that the Society should adjourn till the first Tuesday in October. Havana. [Correspondence oi the Herald.] Havana, May 21,1844.

Long Island, 1 huknday, June 6.?Ah the sport afforded on the two previous days was of an indifferent character, both in quantity and quality, and the attendance at it was limited as well could be. the aport afforded to-day was just the reverse, ana the consequeuce wo* that the attendance wan more than ten time* the amount of number of persons present on the other two days together ; thua clearly showing that if good sport is provided, the public will support it fcvery stand was crowded; the track, for a considerable space on each side of the Judge's stand, was filled with every description of vehicle, full laside and outside with spectators ; and every spot, from whence it was possible to have a view, was filled. The course was well kept; Me vigilance ol those to whom tlm most necessary amy was entrusted. exerteil themselves with good effect, to the annoyance of the great numbers of thimble riggers, lightfingered gentry, and others of this description. The course was in pretty good order, il anything, rather heavy, but not so much so as to be any drawback on the running. The lirst race announced was? Purse? $60 entrance, $10 added ; mile heats. Samuel Laird enters b h. Delaware, by Mingo, dam by John Richards, 6 years old. H. A. C'onover enters b h. Dunregan, by imported Trustee, out of Jemima, 4 years old. In consequence of Delaware being lame, there was no run for it, and Dunregan cantered round with yaung Ransom on him for the purse There wus u good deal of murmuring when this was known ; hut it soon diud away in the excitement of witnessing the great match that was to follow, which thousands had turned out to witness, and gave the road and ground every appearance of EpsomDowns on the greal Derby day in England. Shortly alter three o'clock the bugle souuded to prepare for the start, and the homes were brought iorth. Fashion looked every thing that her best wisheis and supporters could desire ; though some thought she was rather too tieshy. Truly, sho is a most beautiful creature ; we have seen some of the best blood in England, but, in apptiarnnce, we never recollect seeing any one to surpass her. Bluo Dick is also worthy ef having such on antagoui-t . a prettier pair were never matched He only reached Long Island on Monday last from Philadelphia, the greater part of the journey being performed by him the two previous days, in his trots since his arrival, he showed slight symptoms of lameness j and when this is taken into consideration with his feats to-day, it must be acknowledged that he is a horse ef uncommon powers ? Voung Dove is a promising looking horse, and would in a general way he called a fine one were he in other company than that of his two opponents ; when together, he was evidently no match for them, either in figure or action. The betting in the early part of the day, as well as for some days previous, was all in favor of Fashion ; two te

one was offered, hut with few or no takers?three and four to one heiag asked, and some business w:ir done at the latter figure just previous to the race. Now for the grand event of the day Jockey tflub Purse, $1000, $300 to second best horse?4 mile heats. Wm. R. Johnson entersgr. h.

Levi, red jackot, and rml and urK ifo pun They all went well off together, the grey leading to the back stretch, where Dick went in front, and kept there round the top, but on hearing the distance, f ashion took the lead to the judges' ehair. about a length in advance of Dick, performing the first mile in about 1 minute 60) seconds. This position was kept up the back stretch; just above the halt mile post thay wire all well up together, and kept so until neariug the draw ga^e, when f ashion appeared in front, closely attended by Dick, the grey some six or eight lengths behind, and in this position passed the stand a second time, doing the two miles in about 3 minutes 6fi seconds. In the third round up tho back stretch Dick lapped her, and on nearing the top the grey gave evident symptoms of dropping- They came to the chair in a very similar position to the former mile, for the fourth and last round, on hearing the first quarter, the Dove lell off near a length, fashion leading, with Dick's nose just at her tail. At tho half mile they were much in tho same position, the Dovp falling ofl" at every stretch Twenty to fifty was now offered on Dick, but no takeis. When near the top of the straight course, the whip was pretty freely applied to fashion, and she had evidently as much as she well could do to come in o length in front.? Young Dove was distanced, owing in some degree tea crowd near the drawgate, rushing on the course after the t wo favorites came in. These four miles were completed in 7 minutes 40) seconds. Alter a pause of 36 minutes the horses again started, fashion on the inside leading the way, and at the first quarter was some four lengths in front and kept so to the nan miie nnu rourin iiw up?wncm uiu> pinxucu ? sidle very much, but still kept close on the lady and gained upon tier down the atraight course,but Fashion came a length in front at the end of the mile ; and at the turn up the hack stretch increased the space some two or three lengths between herself and Dick, hut he was nut to be thrown off thus, and there was some beautiful running up to the turn. One hundred to twenty was now offered on Fashion, who came in this mile rather more than u length in advance?hut on Hearing the top of the back 'tretah Dick gained on her, and when near the distance and from thence to the judges stand, they came in just in the same position as in the previous mile. In the fourth round, on Hearing the half mile, there was an evident increase of speed and Dick went in front a length?and there was raised such u shout trom the thousands present that might almost he heard across the island?hut on coming round the top Fashion neared him and tried hard to recover the lead, and they came down the straight course in most heuutilul style?Fashion, apparently, not able to recover her lost ground sumcleutly to De evident to the spectators, and blue Dick camo in as all appeared certain a full head in Iront, amid the waving of hats and handkerchiefs, and shouts almost deafening The judges, alter some consideration, declared that it was a dead heat performed in eight minutes 4} ?e conds. This decision appeared to take every one, great and small, with suimrise, and as soon as the spectators recovered a little, there was a general hiss, and cries ol " shame, shame." The matter was pretty freely canvaasd over during the pause previous to the next heat, and even many of the backers of Fashion were surprised at thede cision, and honestly and openly declared it. The betting now became somewhat interesting, 100 te 7ft was laid and repeated by the owner of Fashion, but he did not appear to like doing so more than two or three times. Fsshion lead the third heat on the inside about a length, and by the time she got to the quarter, was some twu or three lengths in front, and so up the back stretch both taking it rather easy. At the half mile, Dick closed upon her and did so gradually round the top, and down to the distance where he gained upon her rapidly, hut came in at the first mile about a length and a halt behind. Up the hack stretch of the second mile there was some beautiful rimninir Fashion had to work like a fox hard pressed; anil Disk went on bravely, not allowing the apace to grow between them?in this way they went round, and they came home thU mile in a very similar way to the previous. For the first half of this third mile they kept as they were previously, and kept much in this position all the way round, Fushion leading to the judges' stand about hHlf a length in front. Ere they reached the first quartet of the fourth mile, it was evident that mischief was meant, and that every ettort would be tried by Dick; he closed on the lady before she reached the hall mile?this Fashion resisted by again making the gap wider in going round the top anil tiied hard to shake him off, but it could not be done just then, and he again closed upon her as they reached the three-fourth of a mile, and appeared to be a length in advance as they approached the drawgate, but Fashion mnde the distance less as they came home, though in doing it, she was near running of the course on the outside, but Dick knew when he got a good place and he kept it home, winning the heat by nearly a length and In seven minutes fifty-three seconds. At the conclusion of this heat Fashion appeared drooping, and it was thought by some she could not stand another tug. In the fourth heat there was a very good start, Dick having the inside, but they took it easy tor the first quarter, the marc leading by about two lengths ; when near the half mile he appeared to shoot in upon her heel ; immediately altar bolted into the field, and thereby lost some .i0 or 60 rods. At this occurence a yell of disappointment , was raised by all present. lie had then to turn back into i the course ; however this was soon done and whip and spur went to work; Fashion came in the first mile more . than a distance before the other, anu all thought the game . was up;thls was graduallylessened by Dick in the two next miles, and when they went round for the fourth, he had got within aliout '10 lengths of her, and this he decreased materially up the hack stretch and round the top and continued in this way for the last quarter, gaining on her i woimrrmiiy, anu wan uiii/ o ui , kh^.ui ........... -uuu Fashion reached home, performing thu heat in 8 minutes i:I seconds, after having evidently done her best.

The ninning throughout this race was beautiful, and r the riders deserve every credit for the manner in which they guided the animals., They both appeared to know I well what they were about, and took pains to do it. As to the decision oi the judges on thu second heat, with all due deference, we must beg leave to differ ; we have seen some hundreds oi races in the old country, but never did , we see such a dead Kett. Indeed, we have also the opinion ot others, who have been found naiong the oldest and staunchest supporters of the turf in this country, who 1 say the same thing. We need only mention the opinion oi one gentleman, Col. Walter R. Livingston, who was J intently watching the close of the heat, who declared | publicly on the grand aland that Dick had won by a "throat latch" at the least. It there is not more care taken in giving decisions in these matters, racing must tall in this country, and no ' doubt il such is ta be the case, the sooner the better. We , afterwards heard that the President of the Jockey Club, who was watching the line as thu horses came in, wus of . 'he opinion that Dick had won, but the other two judges p who were watching the horses, were of an opinion tnat z ihey were so even that there was no telling who led in. I We believe no other two men on the ground saw it in a ' similar way. Centrkvillk Course.?The attendance to-day r at this course, we were pleased to observe, was J belter than on any oi the pievioua days, and the sport in unison with it, and more satisfactory to the spectators, than on the Union course, as there was no " dead heats," Wo regret that space prevents us from going into details.
