I j Spring Meeting, ud aa M waa the day annmtnaed for <ha ^ four mile boat race, that great attraction for New Yor'gara, the attendance wu very oouaidarabie. The beautiful wtoiuber tempted a large number of the fhir MX to pa trooiee the races. and the diepiay of egnipagefl in the enaieeure waa really mignlftoent. 8UU A mwt be acknowledged that the attraction of bene racing m far inferior to that of trotting with the New York public, who turn oat in thouannda to witnu a match between Dora Temple, Ethan Allen or tieorge M. Patcliou, but can only be Induced to wltneee ene day'a racing out of the four which ooneUtute the spring meeting on the Fashion Course. W? have prevlsutjy alluded to one of the causes of this bet, and an titer may bo bund m the bad faith kept by Ute managers of our race meeting*, and the disappointment which tkt public experience in consequence. A ease in point Manned yesterday, in Ute race fbr Ute New York Hotel Handicap. Six boraea were advertised aa being entered tor tbia race, and Ute public naturally anticipated seeing pood field of horses start. Only two home, Prophet and TTovatore. actually ran, and it was weO known that r the latter had no earthly chance of winning, as he had beeu amdas fbr some time previously. The owners of the other horses?Pauline, Irona, Throgueck and Btarbeam?knew parmeity well at the time they entered them for this race, Ute evening pnsoeding, that they would not run; yet the ? public were deoelvod by being led to believe that they would actually start for the race, the disappointment iboy naturally feel causes a reaction against racing, and there is scarcely any wonder that the meetings aro wretchedly patronized. In justice to Mr. Henry Oolton. the proprietor of the Fashion Course, we must state thai this la a matter over which be baa no control. His management of (ho meeting has been characterised by sHciencv, liberality and gentlemanly courtesy to all partes, and are regret, fbr his sake, that (he meeting was net more liberally patronised. The purses in the various stakes were paid over with the greatest promptness, and earners of racehorses, alike with the general public, were completely satisfied with his unwearied exeriioua to make Uw meeting pleasant and successful.

Nicholas had the inside, and allowed Throgneck to take the lead. The latter made the running all the way round, and passed the stand on the first mile in Tbie second mile wss done in 24$. and the third in 2.03, the horse.s mill in the same position. In going along the far side tho last time round, Nicholas improved his position, sad got to the favorite's girths. In coming up tho straight run to, Ihrognsck shook Nicholas off. and the latter swerving across the course the gray won the heat by half a-doaen lengths. Time, $4$. famarm Hist?Very long odds were offered against Nicholas, and some offers of $100 to $10 on the gray horse were mapped up eagerly. Throgneck again took the lend, and on the first mile led by a length; time, 140. The se cond miMtoras done in 1 60. the grey still leading.

In this position they ran to the Mansion House, whan Nicholas made his efbrt, sad pass tog his opponent, increased his lend at every stride, and won the felt by six lengths in 744*. Tmnn Hjut.?The last heal caused another change in the betting market, and Nicholas was backed to win at $100 to $00. It was observed that be had cut his fetlock and walked rather lame, but this did not alarm the coufl denes of his fa leads. They got off well far the deciding bent, the gray going on with the lead, and imtog the inside on passing the quarter pole The first nails was done in 241, and the oeooad in 24.

Wolff ?truck one of the party, and drew hu> pistol upon bun, BMW of the party quarrelled back or reeented the affroflte offered, and aa Myoma turned to run into hie houte be wm shot in the back by Hughes, ! and fell dead. Bug boa, though an officer, wan not on duty that night. The nilef of Pollco hud previou.-'ly met him. and seeing that be waa intoxicated, advised him to go home. Thin he promised to do, but fall teg In with others, and drinking more liquor, on the way home, he was led to the cotninawiou of the act which ooel him hla life. He was a medium six'd man. of light complexion and rather handsome features; a native or lbiB city, twenty-seven years of age. Ho was well known throughout thin city, and by many as an excellent Ml play or, he having at one time followed public 06' playing for his living. He was generally liked for hie mild and kind disposition, but was known to be desperate and insanely reckless when in liquor. From the time of bis sentence to death Hughes prepared himself for his (hie, and soon became reconciled to it, willingly receiving and profiting by the pious miniatra lions of the Rev. rather Dufhu. He long ago decL.rod hn intention of dying like a man and a Christian. His life, the pet companion of his happier days, was permitted to him in prison, and he played upon it frequently and m?r rily for the entertainment of himself and his few oompan ions in the condemned cells. The following letter, written by the prisoner for publication, will serve to thow the state of the unfortunate man's feelings?? Rama Piuson, Naw Ottuuvs, June 14,1M0. The privilege pf a man in my position to apeak a few parting words from the scaffold I have waived for a brief address, which, through some friends of mute, will be given to the public, after 1 shall have suSl-red the last penalty ef the law. Unfettered by the empty formalities of the world, now fast receding, I address myself, as I trust, in a Christian spirit suited for the occasion, first to you, my fellow men and citizens, amongst whom I have been born and raised, and to ask year pardon for the. humiliation and disgrace brought upon your city by one of its sous, who as man and boy looked with pride upon his native place, but who, deluded by its attractions, led by its diversions, forfeited his inhoritancn to its lawful enjoyments, and who. bv his (kll, detracted and lowered tlsfeir fam>>. This pardon I fuel assured von will grant me, when I aut about to atone witb my life for the crime which has been com mitlcd in your midst. while 1 otter my last prayers lor the future prosperity and welfare of your boaulifh! city. The particular* of my crime are too generally known to require a repetition of the circumstances. It is sufficient to say that I committed a murder while under an extraordinary excitement of the worst passions, at the momentary impulse of a frenzied brain. Into this din graceful state 1 had wrought myself by my own free will: I therefore acknowledge the justice of my punishment, and do not desire to shift the responsibility upon other* who might hare incited the deed, as they encouraged the reckless course followed by me of lets. Ou the contrary, I freely forgive, as 1 hope to bo forgiven before s higher tribunal, all those through whose advice awl example 1 have been drawn into those dissolute habits which would have become the bane of wg life, as it has besa the cause of the crime for which I now have to suUer. A great con solat*in it would be In my last hoar that this sacrifice of my life should prove a safeguard to the young and the thoughtless, a warning to put a stop to their heedless career, and a lesson that the laws of our country may not be invaded and trampled upon with impunity, bat that surely a day of retribution will come. Could I take with me into the next world the assurance that 1 had caused the retreat of but one soul from the road leading to endk>s misery, 1 should not consider my sinful life utterly spent in vau>, but receive on additional promise in the merry of my Creator. In addressing the parents, relatives and frteado of my anlbrtunato victim what language ran express the deep humiliation and penitence which has been the growth of constant and bitter remorse from the hour of the fetal deed! Humbly 1 bog their pardon for the affliction this sodden bereavement of a beloved member of their femtly must have oocawtoued, and I fervently hope that, with a Christian resignation in the loss they have sustained, they will nobly and generously forgive, upon my departure, the rulhims hand which has carried death and desolation Into their very midst. Another severe task r rues I l ie to give words to those keen reproaches for having crushed awl brukeu the heart of my poor wife, who aflfectfeuaUdy has clung to w mruugn m um viciHeiiuoe* ai my misspent ill*, IM WHO is doomed to drain the cap of affile! mo to the vejy dregs! Hcf prtjfn hove nrttiMf, her oodMhtfcM htw rup ported me to the very last, therefore ay gratitude for her invariable kladanw fall* abort of expression May Uod strengthen and aoiace her, while from the bottom of my heart I ask her forglv.newdror the misery 1 have onus ed, Um unhappy hue I have I hiked her to. I recommend her in this, my laat hoar, to then* noble friends who have protected her daring our separation, who will kind ly oatuimm to guide, and guard, and keep her repnta tloo unaullied of a crime which her husband la about to expiate with his life. Those few friends who have not deserted me is the boar of need I beg to forgive the trouble and anxiety I have rauaed, thanking them for their kind offices during mar loo* luprtnonincot. Amongst these permit me to particulartac the officers of the Pariah prsno, who, under the superintendent* of Ckptaln Fremaux. so well known fur his gimtl-manly deportment and generous disposition, merit my grateful acknowledgment fur their kind attention. Messrs. Louis Woollbro aud Gabriel Itouvillier, with whom, through their dally attendance.

When it was kX first pro|a*cd to establish a monthly j line of steamers between this port and Liverpool its sue cess was ko much doubted thut it was thought beet to commence by a trial trip, and the Plantagenet was adver ii?ed id Liverpool to receive freight for Port au Prince shippers came forward with a large amount of valuable goods, being more than 160 tuus for this port alone. Return tog from Jamaica on her homeward trip she brought several passengers, and fuund waiting for her a large number who ; took passage for Europe, among whom were two daughters i of the President. The experimental trip, M Is Mid, has j proved so saiudaotery that a regular line is now establish ! ed beyond a doubt. In my hut I alluded to the efforts made by our President to fooler agriculture and induce the country people to pay more attention to tbe matter. As I have already advised i each parish will have an agricultural school and fifty i pupUs, chosen by the government, and educated at each ' free of expense. The plan is an excellent ouo and meets with universal approbation. These model farms, placed in the well settled districts of each pariah, of course will attract attention, and to each tbe 'surround ing planters can go for information, and perhaps in a few years these farms will distribute seeds at a very trifiing expense. Tbe President orders all the officers of the country districts to give Urn laborers every facility; It would be well, too, to require from six to seven nours tabor, or exemption only by a one, worn every inhabitant, and if labor is choeen it should be en forced its it was under the rule of that stern old Governor Christophe. In several of the districts where water i required it is proposed to form Artesian wells, and at Gonaives, it is said, one is already ordered. At Jeremic water will either be led into the city, or such a well will bo dug; the drinking water now used by this city, on" of the most flourishing of tho country, is brwight nearly a league by donkeys. Getfrard vows It tan outrageous waste of labor, and shall last no longer. An engineer Is ordered to examine the spot and report tinbeet mode of introducing water. Since writing last the number of T/>uisiana emigrants at the districts of St. Marc has boon increased. These, people, having sent persons before them to ascertain whai advantages might be obtained by emigration to Haytl. were satisfied with the report, and having readily obtain ed a grant of exceedingly rich land from the government, have stnee beeti coming over in parties of forty 01 fifty persons. They say that there are many more ou their way, and that the severe laws enacted in some of the Mississippi States against negroes will induce a large number to follow them. The economical modes of cultivating their fields, and the tools they bring with them have caused the oubodo niggers to open their eyes, and will probably lead to many improvements in the neighbor hood. Veo will be surprised to learn that among the emigrants them is a good deal of money, some of them having large sums, which they bring with them. For poorer emigrant* who bring but their labor, tho govern ment offers to pay towards the passage money fifteen dollars for those in middle life, and eight dollars for children or old men. If the blacks of your city wish to got on In the world let them send a deputation and look into their prospects here, and if they find them satisfactory they can get rich lands for the asking, and can make arrange menu to have part of their passage paid to their new booiee. American provisions of All kinds are dull of sale, bring ing less than cost price. Flour, pork and codfish still continue to arrive, while our stores are already over crowded with a stock sufficient for two months to come The Jaemel market is also overstocked, and sales difficult Coffee is roming in market in small parcels, and sells at tl 47 a $1 40.

Before Recorder Burnurd C. a. THOMPSON, TBI DKKD FOitUKK, IN OOUBT? CONVICTION AND SENTENCE OF YOPNO THOMPSON TO THK STATU TBI RON PON THAU TBAWt FOB PBMJURV? INTOUMTTNO PAJtTlCl'LAHS. The trial o( Charles Pollet Thompson for perjury, which ?u concluded on Wednesday evening, remitting in the conviction of the prisoner, was, in some respects, the most remarkable case that has been disposed of in this court for many a day. In order that the reader may clearly understand the charge upon which tho prisoner was convicted, it will be necessary to premise that a abort tune since, through the efforts of tho District Attorney's assistants, eighteen or twenty men were indicted for forging d.wds, among them Otarles G. Thompson, the father of the young man. The practice of apparently respectable men constantly offering themselves as sureties for persons charged with crime?whose characters would not bear the closest scrutiny?had become so common that active efforts were made to bring the offenders to justice. These men not only < ?'< red themselves as bail to uw iwwm jiiwriwjv, um, emuowonea uy uioir *ucoe<38, they oftcu presented themselves at tho fAeriffN office for tho same purpose. They generally sworn tliat they were worth property in tho upper part of the city? the Central Park being a favorite locality 011 account of the difficulties placed in tho way of the authorities to find out the owner of the land. Not content with falsely swearing that they owned valuable real estate, their love of guiu and depravity of boarl hud tsoch a powerful influence upon thenr that deeds were forged and dis posed of on certain, occasion* to innoceut victiiu.-i. The prosecuting olhcers felt confident that there was a guuc of swindlers of this description in New Turk, who had succeeded in imposing upon thorn, and victimising those who got within their clutches, and by diligence they broke M up, and found that Charles 0. Thompson was the lender. There are two or three iudkilmcute peudlug against him for forging deeds, and ho Is now in the Tombs awaiting trial. The law prescribes a severe penalty for this particular branch of tho crime of forgery, and If Thompson is convicted of the offence alleged against him, the lowest punishment which the Court can lufiiot is ten yoars in the State prison. Thompson, tho lather of the ! young man, has all the indications of respectability and intelligence, and tuid ho devoted his abilities to an honest calling, he might havo occupied an honorable and influential position in tho community. But his history shows that ho preferred to exercise bis intellect independent of that sense of justice which characterizes an honest man, and which always guarantees success, when united with industry and prae ileal judgment, for in the month of October. 1009, he was arrested, charged with swindling a man out of idd anil failing to obtain bail, he Induced his son to go before Justice Quackcubusb and swear thai he owned a house auU lot, 90 East Tweuty-sixtli street. Upon investigation ii was learned that young Thompson swore falsely, for the house he claimed to own was tho property of Robert Nuns, Bu,., and had been occupied by him for several years. For this crime be was arrested, Indicted, aud put on trial on Wednesday, when strange developments were made. It was evideut that Thompson, who w.ts a pre possessing young man. had been under the pernicious in fluence of his father, aud bad been used by him to for ward hts dishonest projects. The offence'having been clearly established by the prosecution, the Junior counsel for the defence, in his opening address to the Jury, stated their theory was that Thompson made an innocent mis take by swearing be tore the police Justice lie owned the house 96 East Twenty sixth stn-et, when he intended to testify that he was the owner of the house No. 09 in tho same street. This appeared a very plausible story, and the counsel proceeded to establish his theory by calling upon the stand the father of the prisoner, who, as lias been already remarked, is now under indictment for a felony. Charles O. Thompson testified that he owned the bouse no. W k&rt Twenty 4ixtb street at one ttmo, but that In November but he deeded Uwt property to his eon. The counsel produced the deeds, which were identified by the witness, and were thn critically examined by the Aaalat aul District Attorney, who believed the paper* were forged. Knowing the previous history of the witness on the stand, whose profession might bo appropriately named "deed forger, ' Mr. Aulhou, lalo In the aftornoou, urged a recess of twenty minutes In order that he might satisfy himself of the truth or taisity ul Thompson's evi detice Counsel for young Thompson strenuously <>|>pisieil the motion, which was granted by tlie Court. In the in terval Mr. Anllion went to the Hall of Records, and ou examining the records he discovered that Mr. Benjamin V. Thayer was the occupant of No. 69 East Twenty sixth street. A messenger was sent for Mr. Thayer, who ar rived before the case wad given to the Jary. He testified that the house No. fit was occupied by him. and owned by bia father-in-law, Mr. Johnwtooe, a resident of New Haven. Thus the elder Thompson was proved to have committed perjury in endeavoring to ah told hia too (ran the punishment of a similar offence, committed, no doubt, at the instigation of Ms parent. Of course this sudden change In the aspect of the case astounded the Court, Jury, and lookers on?all of whom eupjKwed that young Thompson com rait ted an uiaorent mistake The cminw-i fbr the prisoner ?u compelled to abaodun bin theory, ud oooUiaUn! himself with making a pathetic appeal to the Jury In behalf of bui young client, who, be claimed, actually believed the property belonged to omi, and a* he came to the reacuo of Lis parent be ought not to bo held accountable. The jury thought dUfcreotly, however, for after an absence of twenty mluntee, they returned with a verdict of "guilty," recommending him to the mrrey of the Oourt. An anon a* the Foreman pronounced the verdict, thu mother and meter of Thompson, who were preeent during the trtal, and whose appuarauuu was Indicative of respectability and refinement, gave vent to their grief. The father was also much aflbrtod. and the spectacle was such as to im urew) every bvholdcr. Jt was a louder sermon Hum our s .
