The Ureal Race between Knahlon niul Pey tonn, to-morrow, over the Union Course. Long Island. By way of assisting fair and legitimate sport, we have compiled such information, from various sources, among which is the Sjiirit of the Times, as may he found useful on the oc asion. Having no desire or interest to bias the ju gmcnt of parties either one way or the other, we h tve confined our selves to mere facts, leaving our readers to form their own opinion of the two noble animals, Arc. As resects the betting we from time to time give, it is such us has taken place immediately within our notice. The sketches of the animals here given are taken from |>aintings by Mr. Clark, which are generally looked upon as being about as correct as most extant. The following gentlemen comprise the Executive Officers of the Jockey Club : J. PRE8COTT HALL* Ksq., President. John C.

This will make the fifth great match that has come off between the North and the South, but none of them have excited greater interest. Those grand matches coniineucca with that of LIclipse und Henry in May, IS23, and was succeeded by those of Flirtilla and Ariel, Basconibe and 1'ost Boy, Fashion and Hou ton; eacli in their turn, attracted thousands upon thousands to this city, and contributed greatly to the enthusiasm with which the sports of the turf are re garded throughout the country. It in large stakes, and matches of from $1,000 to #3,000, the North would seem to have " got the. best of it;" the South has made " a drawn game" of the great events, hav ing won with Flirtilla and Bascomlie. Both animals, as we before stated, are in tine condition, and in the hands of the most skilful train ers and |ockeys in the country, who have had the entire control of them since they came on the turf. Fashion, now Hyrs. old, will carry 12llbs. Peytona, 6yrs., 1 |H lbs. Fashion's weight is the same she took up last year, but Peytona carries 11 lbs. more than she ever did before; in her race with Mine IHck at New Orleans, in Dec. Inst, she carried 107 lbs. as a ft yr. old. In the opinion of those welt ca pable of judginrr, she is abundantly able to master this increased weight, in consequencc of her prodi gious size and s'rength, Fashion's PKnionurK, ('it.AHArTF.nisTics and Prit FOtDtANCiw.? Fashion wns bred hyWilliamtiiiihons, Fsq., of Madison, Morris county, N. J., ? here she was foaled on the Wrh April, |Xi7. She is descended from the most eminently distinguished racing fami lies on the side of boln sire anil dam, that have figured on the turf for a hundred years. Fashion was got hv Mr. Livingston's Imp. Trustee, out of the celebrated Bonnets o' Blue by Sir <'harles, and she out of Henlity?"the very best raee-horse," says Col. Johnson, "I ever saw." Henlity was got dv Sir Archy, and her jicdigree extends back through the imjiorted horses Medley, Centinel, I anus, Mon key, Silver-Kye, and Spanker, to an imported Span ish mare. Trustee, the sire of Fashion, wasa dis tinguished race-horse in Kngland, and sold at 3 years old for 2,000 guineas, to ihe Duke of Cleve land, after running third in the race for the I)erhv of 101 subscribers, lie was subsequently imported hv Messrs. Ogden, Corbin, and Stockton. Trustee was foaled in 1829, and was got by Cation, out of Kmnia hv Whisker, and combines (he blood of Hermes, Pipator, and Sir Peter, on the dam's side, with that of Penelope by Tnimpator, and Prunella by 1 lighflyer, on the side of his sire. Trustee is not a chance horse; iu addition to other winner* of his family, in is:if>. his own brother, Mundig, won the I )erby of 12M subscribers; and his half brother, Cotherstone, won the Derby and the 2,000 guineas stakes last year. Fashion is a rich, satin coaled chesnut, with a star, and a ling of white above the coronet of her left hind foot; on her right quarter she is marked with three dark spots, like Plenipo, and other "terribly high-bred cattle." She is about Iftfc bands hiuli under the standard, rising high on the withers, with light head and neck, faultless legs, an oblique well shaped shoulder, and a roomy, deep and capacious chest. She has good length of barrel, which is well ribbed out, and her loins art- well arched and sup ported by strong fillets. Though finely put up fore handed. Iter great excellence consists in the muscu lar developments of her quarters, thighs and gaskins. As in the greyhound and the hare, the seat of the propelling power in (he horse, which enables him to move with a great degree of velocity, is centred in the hind quarters; necessarily in proportion to their strength, there will be the impulse which impels the whole mass forward. Fashion goes with a long rating stroke, withers well, and moves with the ut most ease to herself; wliat is rather singular, she rims with a loose rein ; she is true as steel, has a remarkable turn of speed, can be placed anywhere, and nothing can be finer than her disposition; a more blood-like, honest mare, was never brought to the post. fashion's performances. t 1840 Oct. 21, Camden, N.

Pcyfona is a light red chesnuf, some call her a sor rel. with no other natural white than a star; like her dam she bits prodigious size, being not less, probably, (ban sixteen hands three inches liiirh under the standard; thifc arises, in a measure, however, from the unusual hci'jht of her withers. She has a long clean head, and a line neck : her shoulder is rather upright than oblique, but not so broad as Fashion's. "Through the heart" Pcyfona is amazingly line, and her barrel i-so immense that, standing directly in front of her, one can see her ribs on each side. Ifor loins are supported by strong fillets, but are not arch ed like Fashion's; yet there is no indication of want of strength, either in lu r loins orqnarters; indeed her dock is larger than that of any race-horse we can re member. ller Hanks are full and well let down, as .ire her quarters ; her thigh, stifle and gaskin, are of a rent sue,while her kneesand hocksare models of strength. She has in proportion as much length as Kclipse from the point of the hip to the back, and is still shorter than him from the latter point to the around. Altogether she presents to the eye a most blood-like and game apjiearance ; her coat is bloom ing in the highest degree, and her general air is un usually animated. Pevtona has been trained for all her engagements by Mr. Isaac Van Leer, so well known on the Nor thern Turf as the former trainer of John ('. Stevens and Walter Livingston, Fsqrs., of this city. Her jockey, the redoubtable "Barney," is a native ofCon necticut?of all places in the world! How he got this new name in the South-west we are not aware; his real one is Francis ('.

[Correspondence of the Herald.] Hamilton, (U. C.) May 4. 18M6. A melancholy event took placa last week a few miles west of this, namely, the double death of Col. Wm.Johnston Kerr, and Mrs. Col. Kerr. The funeral was one ofgreat pomp and ceremony, being attended by the numerous tribes of Indians in the vicinity, the whole masonic body, (Col. Kerr being a Knight Templer of that fraternity,) and half of Hamilton. A short history of the deceased may not be unac ceptable. Col. Kerr was a grandson of the celebrated Sir William Johnston ; inherited much of his courags and intrepidity; lie served in the last war, and was made prisoner by the Americans; when hostilities ceased, he was elected to serve in the Provincial Parliament. Mrs. Kerr was a daughter of the renowned Brandt, late chief of the six nations. She was always ac ceptable company at government levees, and was withal, acknowledged to be the most queen-like and dignified lady on this continent. In the course of the last war, a number of armed men were discovered around her house. Her hus band being absent, she assembled her servants, armed them, and disposed them at different doors and windows. The hostile movement was discov I ered, and the intruders fled; nothing daunted, she seized a pair of holsters and pistols, threw herself on her horse, and singly w ent in pursuit. When afterwards questioned as to her fear on the occasion, she exclaimed, "the daughter of Brandt cannot fear." She was a grand daughter of Sir William Johnston, consequently, her husband and she were cousins. Their son Walter, is now chief of the six nations, his father being only regent during the son's minority, the title coming in a direct line from Brandt through the mother. The excitement at the double death was great. The Messrs. Harrison, artists of acknowledged talent, were sent for, and while Iving in their coffins, their likenesses wore taken. It is computed not less than 6,U?K) persons attended the funeral. Navigation ia in full blast, and the travel from the west is immense. A new barque called the Gram pus, Capt. Noting, being the largest on these waters, made a trial trip on Thursday, and gave every satis faction. She trades to Kingston. Yours, Vortkx. Trnimlt of Mercury. [From the Philadelphia Gazette, May 10.] The weather on Thursdav was most favorable for the as tronomical observations connected with this phenomenon. The sky was cloudless, and the professors of the High School were busily engaged throughout the whole pro gress of the transit. We are informed that it occurred about a minute and a half later than predicted, a very small discrepancy this, considering the slow relative motion of the planet. An ingenious contrivance was re sorted to, by which the disc of the tun was thrown npon a screcti, with the planet Mercury as a round black spot on it, alter tlio fashion of a solnr 'microscope, so that the numerous visitors at that institution were enabled, all at the same time, to watch the progress of the planet from its entrance to its departure. [Proin tlio Providence Journal, May 10.] jJTlic transit of the planet Mercury across the sun's disc, which has occurred to-day, was anticipated with much interest by astronomers, lioth in this country and in Eu rope. The morning here was cloudy, the wind fresh at a little east of north, with a sprinkling of rnin mixed with Know. At intervals, from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M., the disc of the sun was barely visible through the passing clouds. At about 3 P.M., the wind came round to the west of north, and the clouds began to break away; at half past 3 P.M. it became quite clear in the direction of the sun, and Mcrcurv appeared as a dark round spot upon the disc, ex ceedingly well defined. From that time to the termina tion ot the transit, the atmosphere was very clear, with the exception of occasional passing clouds" As the son descended towards the horizon, there was a good deal of tremor and unsteadiness of outline, owing to the irregu larities of refraction, The third contact, that is, the interior contact as the planet passed off the disc, occurred at 6h lm 44s mean t ime, Providence. The fourth and last contact at 6h 5m 14s. The beginning of the transit, by calculation, was at about llh 34m u. m. The clouds prevented any obser vation. The foregoing observations were made with a very good four foot rufractor. The time was determined by meridian passages of the sun for several days previous to the transit. 1 think the results may be relied upon as pretty close approximations to the true times. A. C. Brown University, Thursday, May 8, 1845. The third contact, ?9 calculated by K. T. Paine, Esq. of Boston, was to take place at (111 lm Ms mean time Boston, the fourth and last at 6 hours 4 minutes 43 seconds. The difference of time between us and Boston is lm 33s, which, without taking into account the small effect of parallax, would make the third coi,tact lm 60s laterthan the calculated time ; and the fourth lm 54s later. We shall look with interest lor the results of other observa tions. The next transit of Mercury, as computed by Mr. Paine, will occur Nov. 9th, 1848, and will be visible in this country. [From the Buffalo Filot, May 9.] Yesterday proved, at least here, remarkably clear and cloudless, and if the snmc state of atmosphere prevailed over sister cities, where proper instruments are possess ed, we may suppose very skilful observations were made upon the transit of Mercury , "which took place accord ing to appointment." We had good views of this rare phenomenon, at intervals ol'a feu minutes each, for four hours, through a retracting telescope, with an object flass of 3} inches. Mercury was not visible to the na ed eye. but with this instrument, under the moderate magnifying power of only 55, it was clearly and most perfectly defined. There were two small spots upon the western limit of the sun, but both their color and their form differed, wholly, from those of the planet, and were not likely to be mistaken for this last.
