The annual race between the eight-oared boats' crews of the Oxford and Cambridge Universities came off this afternoon over the usual course or four miles and two turiongs, from Putney to Mortlake, on the River TbameB, and again resulted in favor of the Cambridge crew. TUB WKATHBB. The morning opened with a dejisc log, but a> noon, to the delight of everybody, it cleared away, and the weather became ws^-m and delightful, the w sun shining brightly. " h THE' BETTING. The betting at first was in favor of the Cambridge crew, as it was generally accepted that they would prove the victors, the odds being two to one on them. But half an honr before the start the Ox fords suddenly sprung Into favor, the rumor gaining credence that some ot the Cantabs had beerv overworked and were sick. Just before the contest, however, .the Cambridge crew were again.the favorites. THE CREWS. Tne weights and collegiate class halls of the men nalung up the crews were recorded as follows:? OXFORB.

The boats of both crews were Clasper's. the cantabs being 58 feet 4 inches in length, 25 inches extreme width, 14)4 inches amidships, 7)4 Inches depth at stem and at stcrnpost 7 inches. The Oxonians' craft is four Inches shorter and slightly Wider than that of their competitors. # SCENE ON THE RIVER BANK. As usual on like occasions there was great cx sltemcnt in London, business being almost entirely neglected. Hours before the race was to take place great crowds congregated on the banks ?r the Thames, In order to secure eligible positions to view the contest. Hoth shores were lined from Pntney to Mortlake, and the bridges crossing the stream were packed. It la estimated that more people were present on this occasion than ever before. The Thames Conservancy, press aud police boats arrived at Putney at an early hour and cleared the liver for the race. The Prince or Wales and his chllsiren were on the nmpire's boat. Light and dark t>lne bunting, the colors of the Cambridge and Oxford crews respectively, were displayed from all quarters. Almost every person wore a rosette of ^ these colors, as their leellngH dictated.

At thirty-one minutes past, two 'clock:.the word was given, Cambridge immediately k taking the lead at a very quick stroke, and were a fair distance ahead of their competitors to Bishop's Walk, three furlongs from the starting point. Here the Oxfords spurted rigorously and drew up, passing the Caatafc* at the .Soap Works?a mile and four furlongs from Hammersmith Bridge. The steady stroke of the Cautabs soon alter began to tell on their opponents, and in a few moments Cambridge bud resumed the lead. The race was practically ?rcr at Corner Reach, Camhridgf thereafter maintaining the lead aid winning easily by three lengths. The Oxfer?f.crew rowed (torn thirty-nine to fortythree strokes' per minute, ami the Cantabs from thirty-eight to J?rty-two strokes. THB rtuE.

It is said the receipts at, the Grand Opera House since the production of "Uncle Sam" reach $i,coo per night. Mr. Boucicault Is prospering at Booth's, "Daddy O'Dowd" having touched a sympathetic chord in the hearts or play-goers. Mr. Jefferson was roused out of bed the other day at New Bedford by a chap who feared Rip Van Winkle would sleep so long ho would he. unable to get Mr. J.'s autograph. Lester W'aiiuck had remarkable success In Brooklyn last week. Mrs. tonwav theatre was crowded every night by fashionable audiences, and "Rosedale" was finely rendered. Mr. Jerome Hopkins played selections from his repertoire of 100 works, at the Mott Library, yesterday afternoon. His Orpheon Springtide Festival takes place at the Academy of Music on April 28. A gentleman at Nlblo's tne other night relieved his feelings by declaring that "Child Americas" was a great bore. The lady accompanying, not sharing his feelings, Innocently added, "Yes, indeed, he is a great boy." Mr. George Fawcett Rowc's comedy, which Is to be produced at the Union Square Theatre sometime this season, is a distinctively English piece, it is said to have a crisp, brilliant dialogue and strong dramatic incidents. The Yokes Family, who sail from Liverpool on Tuesday, will appear at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on the 14th of April. An enterprising ticket speculator has offered their manager $1,800 for all the reserved seats in the house on that night, hut be has been refused. "Agnes" will be performed to-morrow night at the Brooklyn Academy of Music by Miss Ethel, with unucmij iiuBniuie iuc name com puny oh at the Union Square Theatre. Tlie stage furniture will also be from that theatre. "Agnes" win be played at the Newark Opera House on Wednesday and Thursday. A very pleasant and enjoyable concert was Riven 011 the White Star steamship Celtic on Friday after noon. Mr. J. N. Pattlson was the pianist on the oc casion and played a new work of his own, called the "Celtic Polka," which ho formally presented to Captain Thompson, or that vessel. Mine, de Ryther sang Ganz's "Bird Song" and Herr Sachse played the "Elegy," by Ernst, on the cornet. At the Fifth Avenue Theatre "Allxe" and "False Shame" will be alternated during the week, and the week following will give place to "Old Heads and Young Hearts." "Divorce" will tie produced on the evening of Easter Monday. The cast is to tie the same as at the old Fifth Avenne Theatre, except that Mr. George Clarke will play Alfred Adrianceln the place or Mr. Harkins. If we would go to Niblo's we mnst be content win wnat ine goos (or tne gallery) give ns. It la ihelr will that wc shall ace "Bsiralo Bill" and "Texaa Jack." and the American Bulwer, and the management, like the prudent men they are, at once declare Hielr willingness to pleaae the masses, and announce that It has ever been their aim to meet the wishes and demands of all the various elements entering Into the composition of society. We are sorry to hear that Mr. Cody's duties as a legislator may Interlere with his devotion to art. Dundreary as a married man Is the only phase of that disflngnlHhed notdeman's life which yet remains to be revealed to the American public. Krom Ills attempts at love-making It was plain that he would marrv somebody some day, out af sheer ennui, if for no other reason. When Dundreary married he was at once snrronnded by all his poor relatives, who were determined to live upon him. In this emergency be sought advice from the practical sense of,bw American friend, Asa Trenchard.

The course is a very tortuous one and difficult to row over, even for such crews as those which represented the universities on this Asa told htm to "kick 'em out." which he did. This is ttie story of H.vron's farce which Mr. sothcvn is to play at Wallack's, in addition to the performance of "David Oarrick." The latter piece, by the way, entered upon Its eighth week last night. We understand that arrangements are making for a season of "star" performances at the Olympic Theatre next year. The situation of this theatre Is admirably suited to a succession of engagements in which well-known artists can appear belore the New York public. The only thing to be regretted In this change in Mr. Haves' plans will be the absence of Mr. 0. L. Fox from the birthplace and home of "Humpty Dumpty." Not only has Fox changed the "Christmas pantomime" into a spring of perennial fun, but he has made what we may call a family theatre out of the Olympic. Wc have not yet heard the names of any of the actors who are to appear at the Olympic next year, but whoever they may be they cannot (all to be benefited by Fox's hard work during the last five or six years in making the theatre what it now Is. Kvcrybody is bound to acknowledge that the show business prospers only when it is called the circus, and we all turn with delight to the amphitheatre when the theatre has failed. The trained dogs making love before the Palace of St. Cloud are a nuisance, bnt if we saw them at the clrcns we should say, "Smart dogs, very; Intelligent as their master." The theatre Is not the place for dogs, especially if they are better trained than the rest of the cast, yet we have been punished with this kind of thing all the Winter, l.uckll.v the circuses arc buck again?Lent's, at Twenty-sixth and Twonty-sevcnth streets and Madison and Fourth avenues, and Barnum's, at Third avenne and Sixty-third street. These showmen are perhaps not aware ol the servico they arc doing to art and the relief their continued presence would be to theatre-goers. "Cousin Jack," Mr, l/>roy's play, at flic Union Square Theatre, la meeting with a success far beyond what was anticipated for it. The bouses have been large every night during the week, and the management announce the postponement for the present of all other novelties. Now that the actors have become familiar with their parts, the play Is seen to be an excccdingy lively comedy-drama with a good deal offnn In It, as well as several strong situations. Net bins produced lately Is more successful in eliciting applause from an audience than tnat part of the second act where Cousin Jack comes bounding through the window to save Mine. Valdent from the villain Chambry. Mr. Harkins' great physical vigor serves him a good turn in the part of the adventurous Jack, while Miss Jennie Lee in the part of Blanche acts w}ih a simplicity and naturalness which actresses af higher preten. sions might well imitate.

The murder of last midnight nnd a must (list reusing case of hydropliolita which had a fatal termination yesterday furnish two terrible topics of conversation to the people 01 this city. The victim of ttie hydrophobia was a man named Richard Staples, who had servA In the Marine Corps, whence he was honorably discharged some years ago. Since then he has been employed In his trade as carpenter in Chicago and in this city, lie was attacked about three months ago while In Chicago by

a small dog, which apparently indicted no wound upon him, but the symptoms of the horrible disease made their appearance on Wednesday last. TBI FIRST SYMPTOMS. Some two or three weeks ago he was noticed to be very morose and low-apirlted. On Sunday last lie complained of general ill-feeling, and frequently hid his face in his hands, lie next complained of pains In his back and In his head. A physician was called, but by Wednesday morning the symptoms were not lar enough advanced to warrant the supposition that It was hydrophobia. About six o'clock Wednesday evening it was found that he could not swallow. It was then that the unmistakable symptoms of hydrophobia were flrst developed. The back of Ills throat became perfectly blue and presented a terrible appearance. Calling for a glass of water the patient took It In both hands, conveyed it to his mouth aud clenched his teeth on the glass, at the same time making an unusual noise in his throat. This was the flrst paroxysm. His pulse at the time heat about one hundred, and the pupils ol his eyes were dilated as well us Ills nostrils. Thursday morning tlio paroxysms were more violent, and Ills pulse was so rapid that it could not be counted. TBI PATIKNT I RON Ft). About half-past twelve o'clock that morning lie became so violent that it. was deemed expedient to secure him, a pair or handcuffs and leg Irons being procured uud put on bis hands and legs with ttie greatest difficulty. It took six men .to hold him while the irons were being nut on. He laid down on the floor, folded bis hands over bis breast and stated he was going 10 die in that position, having flrst summoned his wile and friends mill bill them all ooodhr. fie no** renoesterl Met. !

Then another paroxysm came on and he went, off Into violent contortions. Kvea while these spasms lasted he seemed to he rational, and i when they passed off he always seemed prostrated. While they lasted he foamad at the mouth, and there was a continaul desire to spit. These dis- : charges were a tenacioua inucnsMof a greenish cast, and accompanied hy some blood.

Singing was the only thing that seemed to have J a smithing effect, upon hltn and threw him into a state ol ecstacy, but as soon as the singing stopped and the saund of the voice was lost on the audi- I ory nerve the the paraxysm returned. As soan as 1 the singing commenced he would begin to beat his 1 thigh and stamp his feet, and soon every muscle in ills hotly wauId be moving. Ills eyes presented a | Irightlul appearance and glared wildly. His pulse could not be counted at all, and the intervals be- | twecu the paroxysms grew shorter and shorter. Na remedy had any effect upon him. AT Kliwr A UyroilERMIC INJECTION of hnlfa grain of marphla was given, but it saothed linn lor a short time only. Then the lnlectlon was . Increased to one and a quarter grams, and this large quantity of morphia Injected under the skin, eqaal to about six grains of opium, did not quiet him for a longer periad than an hoar. A powerful stimulating liniment was used to rub ! the spine, and hydrate of chloral given, but. without effect. While the paroxysms wore on him he begged those around hint to kill hlrn. When I)r. McKlm visited him yesterday Burning and found him in irons heat first thought he would tak^ them off. hut upon making a Movement to <lo so discovered that It would be very dangerous to release him. The patient was then laying on the floor, having broken dewn his bedstead in his ravings, lie cried ont at the top of his voice while the paroxysms lusted, and the spitting increased rapidly. Tbnrsuay night lie was kept quiet a g*od part of the time bv the singing of his friends, who did everything in their power to relieve his sufferings. Yesterday morning there were scarcely any intervals between the paroxysms; it was like one continued spasm, when his sufferings seemed intense, until ten o'clock when death released him. ASSASSINATION IN WASHINGTON. An Unfortunate Drover Hhadtwrd by Ruffians. Murdered and Robbed. Washington, March 29, 1873. A yonng man named Frank Halin was shocking'* murdered last night in this city, bis skull having been crushed with a hilly, wnlch instrument was broken by the blows, and the face was so much disfigured and so thickly clotted with blood as to tie scarcely recognizable.

The body was discovered on Armory .Square lot, only a Tew yards from the Baltimore and i'otomac Kailroad station. The theory Is that the parties who committed the crime, knowing he had money, followed him from Baltimore, and, availing themselves of the opportunity, seized and carried htm to the lot, where they heat his braluB out and robbed him. This tragedy causes intense excitement throughout the city and many persons rashly threaten lynch law should the murderers be discovered. It was only yesterday a man was hanged in Alexandria, Va? for murder; but this, it appears, had no terror or restraining effect iu Washington. The police have made one or two arreuts of purties on suspicion of having been concerned In the miirrlnr tif Mr Halm rhia ?nnrnlrt* hut nn numau an- given and it is certain that nothing satlsiactcry to he police authorities has heen developed. THE HERALD AND NEW YORK CITY AS A B08IBE8S COMMUNITY. [From the Lynchburg Virginian, March as.] advertising?a wbi.i. sustained journal. The New York iiEKAi.d or Sunday last, contained sixty-seven columns of advertisements, and was compelled by the pressure of news matter to omit eight columns, which would have made the unprecedented amount of seventy-five columns of ad vertising In a single number. Now this was in the city of New York, where the sharpest traders on this Continent, or any other, can be found. They believe that advertising pays. And the immense revenue accruing to the Herald from this source, enables its proprietor to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in collecting news to make his journal what It is. But how widely different is the view taken by many of our slow, easy-going people .from that entertained by the uusincss men of New York respecting the value of advertising. The former seem to begrudge every dollar paid to a newspaper for such service and aftect to believe that "it does no good"?tliat it Is money thrown away. And so instead af contributing in this way to build up first class newspapers that might have a more extended circulation and thereby better promote tliclr own business Interests and those of their cities, they allow their papers to languish and to be couducted oltcn at an actual loss to tne proprietors. We say now?what wo have said heretofore?that there can be no better crlterior by which to jndge of the enterprise and prosperity of any city than Hist luruished in the advertising columns of the local newspapers. If these be filled with advertisements of business bouses it proves that there are wide-awake men there doing business, who are endeavoring to do more. They are not content to plod along in the old way, but use every available melius to extend their business and to build up the conirnuuity of which they form a part We say this because we believe it to be Hie truth, arid not merely because we want advertising. a_ THE HERALD AMONG THE OARLISTS AND REVOLUTIONISTS OF SPAIN.

THE POOR SEAMSTRESS IN JAIL. ' Her Father Refused Admission to See Her. New York's Best Heart Beating?That Tip-Top j Tenement?An Illustrious Viaitor and a Noble Deed-"But the Oreateat of Theae la Charity." Tbe Brooklyn detectives are still agape with the query to each other, " Who is she f" The nlue days since Charles Goodrich was murdered in the brown stone honse in Degraw street have been nine days of grace to the hidden guilty one, in which noise enough has heen made to scar? the assassin to the Pacific. One thing Is evident, and that, 19 that the slaver of Goodrich, man or woman, Is a murderer; and another equally evident tact is, that If the perpetrator should be arrested anywhere about the metropolis or within a thousand miles of it he or she adds the disgrace of being a tool to the atrocity 01 the crime. The detectives had nothing new for tha public on the subject yesterday, except that they are "working on it night and day," the night part of It being doubtless intended to signify that they are considerably "In the dark." From the Chief down they can give the reporters "theories," and the latest of thesa Is that the poor shirt maker, Lucette Armstrong, isn't "tne woman," hut "she knows more than sha will tell." She has dwindled Into the comparatively unimportant character of being "probably" brought forward us a witness at the Inquest onr Tuesday next. Hut In the meantime she doesn't tell the Chief or the District Attorney that sha knows all about it, and they won't admit any one cihc to whom she perhaps would talk. Yesterday morning Mrs. Ilubbell, the prisoner's mother, prepared a bundle ofclotlilng, and sent It over to the Brooklyn Jail for her daughter. Mr. Ilubbell, the aged rather, gray haired and shrunken, was rns REARER OF TUB PARCH I,, and was accompanied by Mr. J. D. McClelland, a lawyer, who lias volunteered his services for whatever defence Is necessary In Lncette's behalf. The prisoner is confined In Raymond Street Jail, and permission to visit her for an Instant even was reinsert the old man. It was with some difficulty that Mr. McClelland prevailed upon the officials for admission to sec his client, and the very slender ground ef refusal given was to the effect that she did not need counsel, as she was not exactly held as a prisoner, but as a witness. He was finally admitted, however, and had a brier Interview with her, but the old father came away withont even seeing his daughter through the bars, lie was in Connecticut when she was arrested and has not seeu her for more than a week. On Friday afternoon Mrs. Armstrong's younger sister Mary went over to Brooklyn to see Lucette, and, as she expressed It, "to see what they were doing with her Hlster Lucy." She also was REFUSED PERMISSION TO SEB UKR, but, being of a decidedly vivacious and merry disposition, even going so lar as to Intimate that she would "fly at them if they didn't let her see her sister," the officials compromised and ad mitted her. Two officers were close by her all tne time sin- wax in rbe roam with Lucette. and. as she mjvs. "They were just trying to listen to all I said and spy out for something, ami so I didn't talk much, just to spite them." While there, however, she read to I.ucette a it extract from one of the papers, "just to let het know what things they were saying aliout her."

There Is a great deal 01 the "milk of human kinrtmm" in New York even on aiainvday. Be for# noon yesterday two good visitors who" had rca 1 the Hkrald's story of the holiest poverty ami prostration of that family of two aged gray heads aud two little budding grandchildren had called on err inds or mercy, and during the later portion.! of the day several other happily ourdeued callers leit their favors. But there was one whose act does the proudest honor to the greatness oi ins station, and to the honors that lisve. gathered about his whlte hairs. About five o'clock a gentle rap was heard at tint door of the humble but neat abode.

If 1 were jot !n stich p<>or health ami the weather ho Inclement I would go over to Hrooklyu ami see the oitlc.als there.
