Pears Entertained That the In dians Will Escape. DETAILS OF THE MASSACRE. How General Canby and Dr. Thomas Met Their Deaths. ? ? ? MR. MEACHAM RECOVERING. Funeral Honors to the Victims of the Treachery. DEATH OF LIEUTENANT SHERWOOD. Camp on tub Lava Reds, April 14, 1S73. The remains of General Canby ami Dr. Thomas were sent to Yreka on Saturilay, whence they will lie forwarded to San Francisco. A guard of honor, composed of the commanding officers of companies, marched through Friday night by the remains of their beloved commander, and a similar mark of respect was paid the remains of Dr. Thomas. The bodies were carried to the top of the bluffs escorted by the troops, and trans form! to ambulances, in which they were curried to Yreka, under the escort of Lieutenant Anderson, of the Fourth Artillery, on Saturday evening. ATTACK ON COLONEL MASON'S CAM)'. The Indians attacked Colonei .Mason's picket- on the other side of the lake, but were repulsed alter the loss of one of their number. THE WORK OF RETRIBUTION lias commenced, and will be continued as long as one ot these Monocs breathes the breath of iite. CAlTlltE OK INDIAN TONIES. Ten of the Indian ponies were captured yester day morning by Colonel Mason's camiaund. The wagons arc now engaged in bringing np the rest of our Commission irom Van Bremer's. They will probably arrive to-morrow, and on Wednesday morning we will move into crimp, on the next peninsula, about a thousand yards from Jack's cave. THE W ARM STRING INDIANS, seventy-two in nuui??cr, under Donald McKay, ar rived last night at Colonei Mason's camp. General Gillem proposes moving quietly to the attack, so as to avoid a greater loss of lilt- than is actually necessary. When everything is ready the mortars and howitzers will be moved into position and the troops advanced in skirmish order from each side. THE MANNER OF ATTACK. They will probably advance during the night and hold their position during the day. The Warm Spring Indians will lie used anions the rocks to the southward, and, thus surrounded, the Modocs will not have a chance of escape. COMMISSIONED MEACIIAM RECOVERING. Mr. Meacliain is considerable better this morn ing, and hopes are entertained of his recovery. Mr. Meacham states that be fired his Dtrinper alter he was wounded, and he thinks that he shot Schonchien. UOW DR. THOMAS WAS Ml'RIlEREP. Kiddle's squaw states that Dr. Thomas was shot by Btston Charley. The poor old (rentleman fell on fils knees from the effects of the first shot, anu beseecned Boston to spare his life. Boston res ponded to the request of the generous old roan, who had in my presence given him blaikets and money, by shooting him again through the head. THE ASSASSINATION OF GENERAL CANBY has created a most profound impression on the military, and his life will be fully avenged. The noble old gentleman was stripped stark naked by the treacherous murderers, and his necktie was the only portion of his clothing found. It is now known that THE INDIANS INTENDED A GENERAL MASSACRE Of all the "Tyees"' or chiers. They expected Colonel Mason to come out and talk with them on the other side, where they hung out a white flag, but the officer of the day, Lieutenant Sherwood, was the only victim to their treachery. Lieutenant Sherwood is still in a danjrerous con dition, but hopes are entertained for his recovery. INDIANS SIGNALING THE TROOPS. Cur signal station is now of immense service, sending messages to and from camp to camp. The Indians were out yesterday in their fortifications, and one of them had a large white flag on a pole, which he wag swinging to and fro, in imitation of oar signal officers. THE SNAKE AND PITT RIVER INDIANA are still quiet, but are watching the course of the conflict with great interest. RIDDLE'S UNHEEDED WARNING. It is dow stated that Generals Canby and Gillem and the Tcace Commissioners had a talk about Riddle's warning, und came to the conclusion that It was only a ruse of Kiddle's to delay the negotia tions. They had not the utmost confluence in Riddle's veracity ; but on this occasion it seems he w?s right in his supposition. MR. DYAR TO RETl'RN TO THE RESERVATION. As socn as Mr. Meacham is pronounccd out of Janger Mr. Dyar will return to the reservation to attend to the Moooc and Klamath Indians there. THE PEACE POLICY A HrMBl'G. . Be has teiegraphed to Washington lor instruc tions, saying that there is no longer any use of trying the peace policy towarus these Indians. Death of Lieutenant Rherwood. San Francisco, April 16, 18T3. General SehoflcUl has received despatches imm General Oillem dated at Yreka to-day, announcing the death of Lieutenant Sherwood, who wan wounded in the attack on Colonel Mason's ramp on the Uth lnst., while the Lieutenant was holding an interview with an Indian boy who appfoachcd the picket line under a white flap. EXTERMINATION THE ORDER OF THE HAY. General Cillmu Hays that he will use every en deavor to prevent the escape of the Modocs, aud that, il possible, not an Indian ?hali be leit to boast ?f (he murder of Oenerai Canity. General Canity'* Snrrrinvr, Chicago, April 1?, 187S. General Jeff. C. Davlfl, successor of uenerai Can by in command of the Department of the Colum bia, passed through tills city to-day on the way to his post of duty. THE LAVA BEDS. Opinions of Cabinet and Stuff Offirrra of Cnptaln Jack'* Position and the miHeultlea of the Troops. Wasiiinoton, April 1?, 1R7.1. Tlie Commissioner of Indian Aiiairs takes a gloomier view timn flciieral Sherman as to the ?lif Mrnlties the troops are likely to encounter In the jtteinpt to capture the Modocs. To draw an cl .ettivc lordon of eight miles around the Modoc fastnesses with the present number ol troops be considers practically impossible, and he expresses aitprcUciiHioii leal lUe AicUvvn niuihi emai/v. 4' all, to the mountains. Captain Jack, savs the Com missioner, ha* Hhuwri wore Hk ill and running than au? Indian chief yet encountered t>v United States troops. The Modocs arc nut a tribe addicted to hunting, but a root-rating tribe; hence they ran subsist in the mountains where, like the Lowry gang in North Carolina, they might doty the power ol the government lor yearn lo come. "According to the last report of Mr. Meacham," added the Commissioner, "the Modocs nuuiber sixty-nine tiirtHing men, iDiludtng several Indian* from other tribes." The Attorney General is of the opinion of the itommisriioner ol Indian Affair*. While he ha* the highest contidence In the skill and bravery of our troop-, ne says tin y are no match for the wi!y IndlanH. The redskins ran travel like rata in places inaccessible to our troops; they know every nook and crevice; are at home on mountain peaks or in the depths of cavernous beds. Suppose the country Ih picket i'<l with soldiers, stationed only a rod apart? That would lie enough tor Captain Jack ami his whole command to crawl through without ex citing perhaps the suspicion that they were steal ing a march on the United Mates troops. Adjutant General Whipple, of General Sherman's staff, was speaking to-day of hia experience on the frontier ami surrounding an Indian camp about three o'c.ock in tiie morning, waiting until day light to beg in the attack. The utmost vigilance was maintained to prevent either a surprise or es cape. The dogs barked about the camp with every indication that the Indians were preparing for de fence. Daylight came; the camp was still there, but not a solitary Indian. AtsunUreak, away up on the mouutum side, the object of our special hatred were lodged, far beyond our reach; and with our field glasses we could distinctly see their savage, defiant gestures. How uiucli more provable that we shall hear of the escape of the Modocs aud their turning up in some other part of Oregon. the wondkkkul FORMATION OK TIIK LATA BHDS suggested a visit to the Smithsonian Institute to day to ascertain if there was anything peculiar 111 the composition of the rock which made Captain Jack and his lo! lowers so attached to such a hard place. The head of the Institute, Frolessor Joseph Henry, was not. in, but from his secretary it was learned that the locality was wholly unproductive, and the place was undoubtedly selected as a refuge and natural fortification, rather than for any in viting peculiarities. The gentleman proceeded with a scien title explanation of ihc formation of the lava beds, which wan quite interesting, but had not the slightest bearing ou the extermination of the Modocs. SORROW FOR GENERAL CANBY. The People of Kichninnd, Va., Have Something to Suy Tuuchlii^ the Mwtuc Massacre. Richmond. Va., April 16, 1873. A meeting of citizens is called to assemble in the United StaLes Court room in the Custom House to morrow at noon, for the purpose of giving expres sion to their feelings in regard to the assassination ol General canby by the Modocs. The meeting promises to be a large one. as flen eral Canby was a great favorite with a large class ol the people here. General Canby's fit-mains. OMAHA, Neb., April 16, 1873. Among the passengers detuined here by the storm is General John P. Hawkins, brother to Mrs. Canby, who Is here on his way West to bring home the remains ol General Canby. THE CANDIA SOMNAMBULIST. The Emerson Tragedy More Complicated than Kver-No Blood Upon the Boy's Clothing? Kitts Quite Unconscious of the Occurrence. Lawkknck, Mass., April 16, 1873. I had au interview in this city, at the residence of his parents, with Wilfred D. Puts, the little fellow who is suspected of having, while in a som nambulist state, committed the tragedy at Candia, N. U. An interview was first had with his mother, who is grief-stricken on account of the unfortunate affair. Wilfred is a very smart lad and very gentlemanly in his behavior and appearance. He is sixteen years of age, and has been very studiens with his books, as well as being an accomplished musician. He is a professor of religion of the Methodist faith, ! aud so very devoted aw times heretofore that he i has appeared somewhat g.oomy, and about two months ago a physician was consulted, who ad vised that lie reiraiu irom his studies and go iuto the country tor recreation. Hence his visit to Candia. He has been in the habit of getting up in | his sleep and roaming about the. house, but has never done any harm other than to hide things away. Upon an indirect allusion to Candia. aud that an accident hud happened to the Emerson boy, aud a?kiug him if he had heard anything about it, he I expressed sorrow and said he had not heard uuy i thing about it. He said in an easy manner that he retired at a quarter past nine o'clock on Monday night; got up once in the night, naturally, and re ti red again, sieeuing soundly until halt-past six o'clock A. M-. when he wus called, feeling tkc same ' as usual. A close and searching investigation of I the clothing that he had on that day ami at any other time does not show a sinirle spot of blood. ! His doming was taken to Candia to-day lor ex i animation. Wilfred is unconscious of the tragedy, aim the papers uud all intelligence bearing directly upon it are withheld from htm. He only knows that the Kmerson boy has met with an accident. The case is now more complicated than ever, and ir this boy did it he certainly is irresponsible. Mr. Isaac Newton Kitts and his wile are persons of the highest respectability here, and deserve the sympa thy. as they certainly have, of the community. I The father, Mr. Pitts, visaed Boston to-day for the purpose of taking such measures as are neces sary to put his sou in the McLean Insane Asylum at Aomerville. Young Fitte was arrested here this afternoon on a telegram from County Solicitor Prank, of Ex eter, N. H. Kitts does not take his confinement at heart, aud says he has no recollection of the matter. There ,is no question but he committed the deed, and a detailed account oi his former actions would show he has been fear fully ami palnlully afflicted. His father, a highly respected citizen, had a long interview with City Marshal Bowles to-night, giving a full account of the boy, who is evidently not (it to be at large. Young Emerson, who was so terribly cut with an axe en Monday night in Candia, is improving, aud will probably live. MINERS' RIOT. Warlike Turnout of Xiotn and Iron Pu (Idlers at KnlghtftwilU, Ind? The Authorities Called Upon to Preserve Or der?Negro Laborers the Cause of the Difficulty. RnkiIitsvii.i.r, Ind., April 16, 1873. A riot has been in progress at tlie blast furnace of the Western Iron Company in this place since four o'clock last evening between the negro labor ers from Virginia and the white miners ami pud dlers, who are ou a strike. Three of the guard de tailed from the police of the town were ti nelly beaten. Kev. Mr. Matthews, who appeared ou the scene and endeavored to t-ecure peace, was set upon by the mob and struck on the head by a large cinder which cut a severe gash, but did not serloialy Injure him. Two guards, John Derby and Ueurge Murhargen, were badly bruised about the lace and body by the women, who took the lead in the affray anil urged the rioter* on. The Emmet Guard* and a detachment of police commanded by General I'an Macau ley, of Indian ai oils, arrived here at live o'clock this morning, ?lnce when peace has been restored. Several of the ringleaders have been arrested and are being tHken to Brazil, lad., where they will have trial. Hit* miners and puddlers are confident an* defiant, snd it is supposed they are waiting lor the with drawal oi the troops to renew the attack. The better class ol miners and puddlers are dis posed to be law-abiding. The women have thus lar proved the most desperate dement, which per haps accounts for the lact that there Is not as yet any latal results. Bight arrets have been carefully made, and the prisoners sent away salely. All is apparently <iuiet now. The police and Kmmet Guards will re turn to Indiauapslis to-night. Trouble is likely to break out at any moment again. The arms snd ammunition will be kept with the fnrnacc authori ties, who are determined to prevent Interiercnce. ThfcTe is a very bitter ieellng on the part of the strikers, and only great caution and strength < an prevent a serious riot while the negroes are here. A SAD CASE OP POISONING.

An Impromptu S%*??|'?t?ki'? Won by 'I inkrr. The second day oi the Balne pigeon shooting Tournament at llall'M Driving I'ark. on the coney Island road, a)>ke to tlic first, was ver* successful. ' Although the assemblage was uot greater than at ' its inauguration, there were more representative ' sportsmen present, who gave the content a charac j ter it would not otherwise, perhaps, have ! assumed. The announced programme wiw for a I double-bird sweeptakes, Rhode Island rules to 1 govern, which call for eighty yards rise and 1(K) yards boundary. Kach shooter was restricted to ten pairs of l>irds and 1\? oz. shot. The entrance was f.'iO, the total amount being divi ded into first and second money. Entered for this contest were lour or the five shooters of the pre vious day, th'.'se with their guns and character of loading being as lollows:? A. H. Hog .mil is, of Elkhart, 111.?

American (old fashioned) lo-gaugc double barrel muzzle-loader; 1'4 oz. shot and ft drachms powder. Two 11 and T traps were in place, and the referee, Mr. George s. Lanphear, by having wads numbered corresponding with the names of the shooters, drew in an equitable way in what man ner each should approach the score, thus serving all alike ami preventing any con nivance with the trapper as to the selection ol ! nuds. As observed on the first day. the birds were very lair, and, contrary to surmise, the winner 01 the filtv-blrd sweepstakes was last on the list, when the contest was over. The shooting 'J*8 quite creditable. Bogardus, l'alne, Tinker and larlin for a while being on an even footing, but the two nrst named at the end of the tenth pair were tie, each killing sixteen and missing lour, lhey then snot off, the rules calling for live pairs each and the rise 1 twenty-one yards. In ihis Bogardus proved the i superior, despite his lameness, and was pro 1 no u need the victor, taking the hrst money, $176, while I aine received tiie second prize of *75. There were several slu ts made on tins tr al which competent judges praised very mKjiiy, among tnem being four or five lor Tinker, who had lus accustomed bad luck, and two or three lor Bo gardus, one ol winch was greatly commended lor the distance lie killed his birds. The score, after the ten pairs had been shot at, stood Bogardus, 16; l'alne, 10; Tinker, 15; Carlin, 14. and Johnson, 14. In the sliooting-off Bogardus killed seven and l'alne Tour out or the five pairs. There was but little belting ol note on the result. Alter the double-bird contest, li being yet early, a five-bird sweepstakes and fioeutrance was made ! up, with the annexed entries:? Tinker, Bogardus, I raine, Johnson and Brown- This added to the dav s snort, the rules being the Rhode Island, calling lor twentv-one yards rise, eighty yards boundary and a withdrawal after the first miss. Mr. Brown re tired at Ids first bird and l'alne at his secoud, the remaining three killing live each, in shooting on these ties of five birds each, the trap.-! were placed at the distance ol twenty-six yards, when linker proved the winner.

Negroes Outrage a Pregnant White Wo man, Then Kill Her? The Principal Captured, Tortared and Burned to tike Stake? The Others Shot. M Harms, Tenn., April in, 1873. The Augusta (Ark.) Bulletin publishes a letter from Thomas Warren, of I nion county, Arkansas, giving an account of a horrible outrage npon and murder of a white woman by a negro in that county. A few weeks ago a mari ied woman went to a neighbor's lioui*e to remain several days, bat lound no one at home and started to return, when a negro stopped her fcorse. took her off and drove, pushed and pulled her eight miles into the bottom lands, where he tied her to a tree and ontraged lier. keeping her there for three days. On the second day, while still tied to the tree, she gave birth to a child. On the third day the hus band of the unfortunate woman, not finding her at the neighbor's, but discovering her horse where the negro had left it tied, collected some oi his friends and beirun a seaieh, which resulted in finding her dead body tied to the tree, the negro having mur dered her by blows upon the head inflicted with a Clllb. The murderer was soon afterwards captured by a [ party of negroes who were assisting in the search, At the husband's request the negroes built two log heaps, and, setting them on fire, placed the nepro between them. They were twenty-tour hours burn ing linn, and at intervals subjecting him to hor rible torture, Huch as cutting off his toes and strips from his body. There were three other negroes concerned in outraging the woman. They were subsequently < aught and shot. THii SEWARD MEMORIAL, Boston, April ia, 1873.

THE WAR OF RACES IN LOUISIANA. ? ~ ? Washington, April in, 1873. The Attorney Oeueral has ordered the tinted States District Attorney at New Orleans to semi a lull and careful report ol the rioting and lilooilsiicd J reported as occurring m Grant parish, La., the I press reports showing a serious breach of peace ! and order in that locality, but not being regarded | as accurate enough to lorin the basis of action , here. Your correspondent Is advised from a high lejrai 1 source to-night thai even the capacious acts of Con- i gress (ramed to maintain party ascendancy, lurnUh no grounds for proceedings under any other t han fstnte authority; but, us the only potent authority In the State exists by the will und support of the national administration, it amounts to a ease lor the general government in the end, though it may be necessary to "go outside the constitution" to reach it. it has been no secret here ior a time, reaching back of the last Presidential campulgn, that mutters in the Southern States have gone Irom bad to worse, until there seems to he no remedy short, of another series oi reconstruction acts. Red Itlvor Kio('.;? Side of the Qik-m lion? Stow I in- BiSti ally UriginuHd from a Krpiililica 11 Si?nil|'oiu1. The following statement or the difficulties at Col" fax, in Grant parish, has liecn prepared by snmt ui the negro party who went to New Orleans: ? In view of the misrepresentations made of the rcceat difficulties in the parish ol Grant, and in Justice to ourselves, we deem it proper lo put the public in possession of the facts. Everything ap peared quiet up to the evening of the 3lst of March, when rumors reached ua that a body of armed men intended, on the following day, to make an attack on Colfax, take possession of the Court House, with the put. lie property therein, capture the oflieers appointed by Govenor Killogg, who were quietly exercising their duties, and put the appointees of McESBcry in their stead, and made threats of a more serious character against our representative, Willam Ward, and oilier prom inent republicans. Our Sheriff, Mr. 8 haw, immediately took such steps as the emergency seemed to require by dep utizing good citizens to aid in protecting the pub lic properly and keeping the peace. On the morning or the 1st of April a small body of armed men, supjKtsed to be twelve in number, were reported on <all'.oun plantation in the direc tion of Koukferd, and another body, as laras seen, seven in number, beaded by one ti. W. Scarbor ough, brother-in-law of Rutland, armed, came in by the way of Kayou burro, on the road leading from Colfax to Lecroix ferry. A third party, num bering sixteen, armed and In aded by James Had not, came dircctly to the store of l>. llruiland, situate about three hundred yards Irom the Court House, but made no lurther demonstration than sundry threats against the aforesaid ottlcers and clt zena. A respectable body of citizens, under the guidance of the proper authorities, served as a wholesome restraint to their farther proceedings, and about four i'. M. Ibe whole body disappeared. Fearing a second advance, and for the further securing of the pcace, guards were placed at inter vals where danger was apprehended. Anout six o'clock W. it. Kutland, with family, moved across the river without threat or hiuderauce, thouirh well known to be the prime movers and coworkers with Iladnot in these as well as other troubles that have aiilicted tins otherwise peaceable and orderly paris*. Some time during the nxrht some person or per sons, without the knowledge or cousent of the authorities, entered the house left by said Rutland and committed some trituug depredations on some articles of clothing, leaving furniture and articles or value, together with a box containing the em balmed body of a child, entirely unmolested, the truth o( which can be amply established by W. K. Harveil, attorncy-at-iaw, from Montgomery, who was deputized by the citizens of Montgomery to inquire into the existing dnticultles. On the second day following Mr. W, L. Richardson moved his efTects across the river, in view of all present and uumolestcd. From the 1st to the 4th inst. bodies or armed men were seen hovering around, keeping the people in an excited state, many el whom from terror had leit their homes and Docked to the Court House for mutual proteo tien. On the morning of the 6th an armed party was discovered moviug on to Kmithfield quarters from the direction of Rockford. While manoeu vring there a part of the same body passed down to the crossing of Rayon Darro, three miles east of Colfax, and there shot and killed one Jesse McKlnny in presence ol his wife and children, he being unarmed and in his own yard. The party first mentioned continued their advance along a piece of timber skirting Kock Island and within a half mile of Smlthfteld Quarters, mounted and armed, when their approach was suddenly checked by our forces, advancing in three com panies, endeavoring to flank them, and thereby prevent retreat. This move was discovered by them barely in time to save their whole party from captnre. They flred at our approach and made a hasty retreat, hotly pursued by the footmen and a few mounted men of our party, resulting in the loss on their part of two pistols, saddlebags, Ac. On the sprite day a small party appeared near SmitliBcld, in which was one W. Strong, Represent ative irom Winn, and, no doubt, largely composed of men from Winn and adjoining parishes (as the mass of citizens of this parish arc much incensed with Iladnot for forcing this issue). Htrong was questioned by some of our men and stated that he merely came in company with some men Irom Montgomery to make arrets of ceitaln men charged as havieg destroyed Rutland's goods. On Sunday, the oth inst., a small body of mounted men from C< ifax, while guarding the approaches, suddenly encountered a baud of armed marauders near the loot of lloggy ltayou, on the Calhoun Plantation. Here a sharp conflict ensued, result ing in the rout of the entire band, who fled precipi tately across the bayou, with what loss is not fully known, leaving dead on the field, it was said, one Jack O'QuiBn, of Ku Klux notoriety. It should lie borne In mind that all of these occur rences took place on the plantation cultivated by the defenders, and in sight of tnoir homes and fami lies. To get up a body of men for the unwarranta ble attack on the peaceable and inoffensive citizens of Colfax and vicinity it was necessary to resort to perfidy, and every conceivable ami infamous He was industriously circulated through the pine woods to accomplish tbe purpose. Communication by the republicans was entirely cnt off, thereby giving the culprits ample tune to disseminate false and vilianons reports of their ownwantcn and cowardly acts; and we submit, In all conscience, that the republicans of our parlsa are deserving of tbe highest commendation for the moderation ami forbearance shown to some bad men living in our midst, who now, happily, by their own act and on their owe motion, have left our parish, on a thorough investigation of the facts, which will sp<" ilily take place, the ?i ovo state ment* will be abundantly provtri.

Village Blacksmith Wins the Two Mile Eurdle Contest? Frogtown Victor in the One and a Quarter Mile Dash? Silent Friend Winn the Louisiana Stakes. Ni.w Oiu kanh, April lfi, IR7X A severe storm, with tsrrents of rain, caused tho postponement of .vat onlay's races nntil to-day, but lelt the track in a wretched pasty condition, j The shell roads leading to it. were, however, in splendid order, five from dust, and this, together with a cloudless sky and cool nortli winds started the racing community into unwonted activity. The attendance was larger Pian upon the first day, and numbered a far greater proportion of ladies, thus inventing the event with an inter est and charm which put everybody in a good humor. Tlio programme offered three good races:? First, a hurdle affair of two miles, with five entries, consisting of the veteran Itlind Torn, of late a littlo off; Village Blacksmith, rapidly growing in popular favor as the timber cham pion ; Old Tom Corbet t, who has run more races and won fewer than any horse on the turf; Pelham and Nashville Harry, two new candidates for popnlar lav or. The second event was a mile and a quarter da.-h ler all ages, with eleven entries: ? C. O. !>., Kmnia hansom, cape Race, Saucebox, Evelina Mabry, Sir Kulus, Mury Louise, King Bcnezet, Tom Leathers, Frogtown and a colt from Warwick's stable. l.astcame the Louisiana Stakes, two mile heats, with f >?ir starters? Voung Hurry P., Annie M., Uelle Buckle and Silent Friend. The netting upon the track was very limited,' but rather spirited at the pool room, where the Blacksmith sol i at odds against the Held for two hurdles; Cape Race as the lavorite nearly even agulnst the field for the dash, and Silent Friend was largely the favorite lor tlio Stake race. FIHNT HACK. Punctually, as usual, at the stroke of thro? o'clock, brought the horses out lor tlie tirst tour nament, and alt showed In good order except Tom, who is evidently getting too old for such severe Murk. Home little delay occurred in getting them off in consequence 01 the Blacksmith snowing a disposition to sulk, hut at last they weut off in good order, laboring through the mud like ploughmen. At I lie start Uorbett caught the leail ami proved himself a good mnd horse throughout. He look the tirst hurdle In good style, billowed by i he Ulacksmith, I'elliam and Harry third and lourth and Tom lumbering in the rear. At an easy p, ice tliey rounded the turn, when the uiaeKsuiitii drew leisurely u< the front, Tom follow in,r ins example up to the third place. In tlu<* i order they trailed around tlie entire two miles, Tom making a brave brush at the llnisli, whicU proved unsuccessful. The Blacksmith led home, ben ting Corbett two lengths, with itlind Tom third, I'clhum a had fourth and Nashville Harry, who threw his rider at the filth hurdle with a magnill ceut somersault, nowhere. Time, 4:21. THE SECOND RAl'E was verv quickly decided. Without rtclav the large Held, numbering eleven entries, were Heat back ii* i the three-quarter mile pole, where, alter a lew hiiiks, tiie.v got away in a bunch. As they came by 1 the stand Weldon's mare was seen in the lead, hufci i'rogtown passed her under the string at a rattling I pace, with cape Race thundering on his flank.. Sweeping the turn the others fell so far In the* i ruck it was plainly evident that the laurel lay with ! these three. Frogtown with a gallant struggle I held his own along the backstretoh, althougu, closely driven by Cape Race down to the finish. I where, despairing oi victory, he yielded second place to Mury Louise, who was only beaten by a. I length. The fielders came in .scattering, piloted by Mabry. Time, 2:26. Frofftown's victory created great excitement for a while, the knowing ones having dropped heavily.. TUB LAST KICK did not awaken any extraordinary Interest nntlf just before the start, when, from soiae unexplained cause, the fielders rallied and freely oucretl even a gainst the favorite, all eagerly taken. Alter two false starts tlie horses got off fairly, with Helle Buckle in the lead, closely lapped by Harry, Fan nie M. and silent Friend leisurely bringing up Hie rear. They maintained this position comfortably throughout i tie tirst mileaod into the next quarter, when Silent Friend, lollowed by Kuuuie, marched to Mtc Ii out ; neck and neck these two nags had it mound tothe homestretch, the lcail ?(' which Harry put in Ills claims. The drive home was splendid; as they ueared the stand victory being in a hair balance, Fannie having slightly the advantage; but Belle Buckle coming up Fannie shied into the fence, injuring slightly her rider and giving the heat io the Friend by a length, with Harry a good third and Ituckle lout tli. 'lluie, 4:0t). After this result betting was more languid than ever, the Friend being freely offered at 2 to 1 against tne field, with few or no takers. The second heat was almost a repetition of tlio first Hello got away In the lead and Silent Friend quietly trailed around the first mile tn the ?*'. At the fl r-. t quarter of the second mile he again went up, had a lather sharp contest with Fauiile, down the liaelt stretch, and subsequently at the head of the home run with Harry, who came up to hia work splendidly; down I tie finish they all came under whip and spur, Harry holding the front al most up to the distance stand, when the Friend gradually drew ahead, coming home winner by hall a length, Harry second, Fannie M. third, and Uelle Buckle just saving distance. Time, 4.12^. Thus ended three well-csn tested races, ran upon t he worst track it has yet been your correSpon dent's lot to cross during a race meeting. Frog town's victory took everybody by surprise. Ho sold for little or nothing in the pools, and is known to be almost entirely gone with a bad foot. No doubt his success is due to the softness of the track, and It is the opinion oi all tuffmen that he will never run another raep. Silent Friend is al ready well known on the turf. Is a splendid looking horse, of the Lexington and Australian strain, aud is held In very high estimation by his owner, who expects liiui to make a very brilliant record at Saratoga and Jerome Park the coming season.
