YACHTING THE SEASON OP 1873. Its Opening and Prospective Brilliancy. Bogatta of the New York Yacht Club. Hew Boats Added to the Organization?Those Altered and Improved?The Sailing Reg ulations, the Course and the Prizes Probable Entries?Invitation from the Boyal Western Yacht Olnb of Ireland Chance to Secure An other Queen's Cup. Though (here has been but little to assure us of the (act Have the calendar of the seasons, Spring Is here at last. Winter, not sutisfled with being more disagreeable than Tor many years, seemed deter mined to be unreasonably persistent, evincing an impertinent desire, like the Old \fan of the Sea. to take up a tantalizing position on the back of Spring, which lie would not vacate. It mattered but little that Spring struggled lor relief as she was borne down by the heavy load. Yet with all his persistence, all his sullen moods and wild storms, Winter at last is granting a long respite from his tyrannical rule, yielding to green fields and velvety turf that are spreading themselves over the throbbing ground. Leafy lane will soon be knocking at the door for admit tance. There are certain manifestations to indi cate the fact, and, moreover, others?to wit, that the days of genial sunshine and pleasant, wafting breezes are near at hand, by the activity displayed In yachting circles in and around the waters of New York. Despite the backwardness of the sea son, when the work of preparation shonld be car ried on, there is no hesitancy in oDservlng that TUB YACHT1NU OUTLOOK of the Summer of 1873 is full or promise. Whatever may have been the success of former years in this soul-stirring pastime; whatever may have been tne scenes incident to exciting regattas, length ened cruises around the coast or matched races in stormy seasons, from the parent organiza tion to the smallest of her children, the year before ns, no doubt. In the character of the exhilarating ?port will favorably compare with any of its pre decessors. It will not only be marked with bril liancy, but it may result in a series of exciting struggles with the crack schooner Guinevere, of the Royal Thames Yacht Club, owned by Mr. rnellusson, who, as rumor has it, will cross the ocean this season to test the speed of the Ameri can yacht fleet. THE WORKS OP PREPARATION. Though the owners, generally, or the pretty pleasure vessels went to work later than is usual to prepare for the campaign many have exhibited much wisdom in the alterations and additions made to their craft, while others, with commendable zeal, have and still are repairing, refltting and redecorating. And in yachting circles there is immensity of talk. Plans for future contests and speculations regard ing present rigs are eagerly discussed. More so th?n for several years, there have been constructed during the Winter divers yachts of medium size, whose owners, with dignity and impressiveness> assert that their neighbors may be astonished at their speed and weatherly qualities, all ol which goes a great way in support of the proph ecy that the approaching season will In reality be a genuine yachting period. Not only have the several clubs tn this vijcinitv been augmented with new bouts where flowing lines and perfect symmetry or proportions were sought to be attained, but they have made extensive preparations for their annual regattas and the Bummer cruises which always follow them. NEW YORK YAOIIT CU'B REOATTA. First on the list to have their yearly reunion la the New York Yacht Club. Their regatta will be sailed on Thursday, 5th or June, and rrom all indications there is every reason to expect that the coming together or the Club's "pleasure marine" will pro duce unusual excitement. Several new racers have been added to the squadron, which now numbers over sixty sailing crait, which, together with the radical alterations made in many of ttve number, will naturally lead to a much luller "entry"* than has at times been obtained. The change of owner ship will also have a similar tendency by introduc ing new and sanguine aspirants for the proffered prizes and the laurels or the wave, and although the lormer cannot fall to the lot of all, yet the ma jority may win the latter in their episodical or ac cidental contests during the forty-mile race around the lightship and return.

These racers In a few days, with the old estab lished favorites of the club, will be in fine trim for the annual regatta or the club, an event which will awaken in the public, as It has already in the minds of yachtsmen, the deepest interest and liveliest enthusiasm. The new boats and those altered will on that occasion, for the llrst time, have an opportunity of satisfactorily testing their sailing qualities in company with yachts whose reputations tor speed and weatherly qualities are known and recognized the world over; and this trial will go far in enabling yachtsmen to deter mine In what degree the expectations of their owners and builders are to be realised.

Though the list has just been opened in the Secretary's office for the entry of contestants, the names of old favorites are already noticed, and from conversa tions with owners and letters to the officers of the clab, there will, no doubt, be such a number con tend for the magnlflcent prizes prepared tor the winners that, with the Important adjuncts of suffi cient wind and a pleasant day, the spectacle in the harbor will be equal. If it does not surpass, any like festival. The contestants, It is surmised, will em brace the following or a majority of them ?CHOOKBBS. A'amni Ovner. f>nme. Omer. AI firm ..A.C.

The prizes to be awarded the winning yachts this year arc of equal value. They are not only beauti ful in design and finish, but they are serviceable and will be appreciated by the winners. Looking at them at Tiffany's one's thoughts quite natur ally, in imagination, follow pretty hulls, tapering masts and canvas setting like a board down the bay and around the lightship. The ornamenta tion of each piece suggests salt waves and tossing spray and brawny-shouldered smilors and all else lingering around the vague, subtle romance ?t the sea. These pieces of silverwork are four In num ber and as follows:? Punch tiowl, wlUch Is nine and a hair Inches In height and twelve Inches In diameter and of bur nished silver throughout. The base Is elegantly set off by a cable bonier, and the handles are formed by anchors five inches in length, of oxidized silver. Upon either side of the bowl Is the head of Neptune In bas-relief. Uerry or rrnlt bowl, which Is nine and a half In ches In height and ten inched in diameter. The silver Is In satin finish, and all the mountings ox idized. The base Is supported by four dolphins, elegantly wrought, and the border, one and a quar ter Inches wide, is lormed or a series of anchors delicately executed. The handles are formed by hcada of Neptune in the centre, upon either side of which are ivy leaves and anchors prettily entwined, with a cable running down through the leaves to the anchors, the whole forming a beantl lul silver piece. Chowder bowl, six inches In height, with an oval dish fifteen Inches in diameter. This Is In satin finish aid lined with gold. The cable border finishes the base exquisitely, while the handles are formed by heads or Neptune, and tridents extend down on either side or the dish. Tankard, eleven inches in height, and is In satin finish, relieved with parcel gliding. Around the ceutre of the body Is a chain or oxidized anchors, with sprigs of laurel in gilt between each, and through the whole a cable delicately entwines. The handle Is supported by the head of Neptune, and in finish and gilding corresponds with the body uf the piece. Around the neck runs a cable, while the upper edge has a pretty line of gilt en circling it. lhe cover Is surmounted with a large oxidized anchor lying on a coil of rope. Altogether the yacht prizes form a tine collec tion and are worthy tne attention of all who are Interested In yachting. INVITATION TO VISIT QtTEBNSTOWN.

[From the Anvil (Dartmouth College Journal), Hay 21] The attention of all lovers of outdoor sports is centred upon the coming regatta in July, the greatest water ever known In America. Twelve of the largest universities and colleges are busy In preparation, and thousands of students are looking forward to the day on which their favorite crew Is "to do or die." The New Yore Herald has made a most happy suggestion, which, if car ried ont, will greatly enhance the Interest or the coming struggle?U, to write the two orevu of Oxford and Cambridge to Join in the coming struggle- Their vacation won Id give them abun dant time for their trip and training. Although they are accustomed to row in eight oared boats, yet they could quickly adapt themselves to our aixe, as the London Rowing Club did when they beat the Atalantas so badly. If we are beaten It will be noth ing to be ashamed of, and the knowledge gained from a visit of the men or whom ail England is so Justly proud would be more tnan could be obtained in half a dozen years' training. It can do no pos sible harm to invite them, andlf they accept there will be the most brilliant aquatic struggle ol the nineteenth century * TROTTING.

He is short and thick-set, was attired in a salt of homt-Bpun and possesses a florid and good looking rustic countenance, (ringed with bushy whiskers. Ills eyes are bright and keen, while his mouth and chin denote firmness of nerve und resolute determination. Yesterday morning Mr. Carnugan was walking np Greenwich street, In the vicinity of the Pacific Hotel, when he encountered a stranger, who sud denly halted and accosted htm familiarly with the Inquiry "Holloa I Ib that you, Carnugan?" The stranger was a well-dressed man, with the air and manner of one accustomed to city life, lie said he had formerly resided In North Carolina, and gave his name as Samuel llano. He professed himself delighted to meet any one from his native State. Ho was Carnugan, even though he failed to distinctly recall the Identity of his acquaintance. As was natural, they adjourned to a neighboring barroom for refresh ments. While there llano confidentially lnlormcd him that he had just made a successful lottery venture and was about drawing the money. Mr. Carnngan very readily accepted his invitation to accompany him to the place where the money was to be paid. Together they journeyed to the corner of Wash ington and Cortlandt streets, and went up stairs to a room on the second story, where Mr. llano presented his ticket and received (loo In bills and a red check representing more money. A "LITTLE G AMH CALLKl* "BANCO" was In progress in the back room, in which Mr. llano invited Mr. Carnugan to try his luck, and very generously offered hiin the red check to start play with. Mr. Carnugan, nothing loath, accepted the offer, and, staking it on the game, soon netted (40 from the backer oi tne game, (Jiilte pleased with his success. he allowed his "pile" to remain on the table, and, drawing out his own wallet, added $100 to it, and continued to play agalust the bank. The dealer, a Mr. Reward D. Rnssel, and Mr. Samuel llano exchanged slgniticaut glances and smiled as they eyed the well tilled pocketbook of the gentleman from North Carolina. Luck con tinued to favor him, and soon the $140 had mounted up to (-J40. Mr. Carnugan Increased his stake once more at this stage, and ere long was the fortunate possessor of (340 net winnings. Being a man cool and clear headed and not easily infatuated with success or too readily lasclnated by the allurements of the gaming table, he quietly took up the winnings and said he would pluy no more. A BOWIK KNIFE ROW. This sudden determination of Mr. Carnugan (ltd not at all enter into the calculations of the game sters, and they did not appear In the leant disposed to acquiesce In lis propriety.

The defeneunts were attired in the usual flashy style affected by gentlemen of their prolesslon and behaved In Court with characteristic coolness. The money was retained in the custody of the Court and ordered to be sent to the Police Property Clerk.

The examination or the case or Albert Oatman, who is charged with keeping a gambling house at 06 East Twelfth street, drew together a crowd of gamblers In the court room In the afternoon, all of them anxious to learn the result in this the latest phase of the fight between the Immense gambling interest and Justice Cox. The testimony was brief. Two officers ol the Fifteenth precinct testified rather reluctantly, as it appeared, that they had visited the house in question and lound all the implements necessary to carry on a game of faro spread out on a table. Captain Byrne was in formed of the matter and sent word, as testified to by one or his officers, to have the place closed or there would be "trouble." Be fare any rurther steps were taken In the matter by the police a man named Harlow II. Priest was inveigled into the place by one of the "cappers," a man named O'Conor, and lost (14. Priest made complaint before Justice Cox, and Oatman was arrested. The defendant's counsel put In the plea that the house was not a gambling house within the meaning of the statute, and upon this plea moved for the dismissal of his client. Judge Cox denied the motion, and expressed his deter mination to break up tlie gambling house* at all hazards. O'Conor, the "capper," and oat; iff the poorest specimens of the class, was discharged, on his promise to earn in the future au honest liveli hood. Oatiuan was required to And (300 ball for trial. TBE BOGART DEFALCATION. He Admito Perpetrating Fraud* bjr Di rection of Paymaster Clark, of the Vermont, and Explain* to the Court the Modus Operandi?Hi* Share a Fur Coat Worth 1185. R. D. Hogart, the paymaster's clerk, whose ar rest some months ago, by order of Secretary Robe son, created much excitement in .San Francisco, has just been trted by a naval court martial, and from the following statement made by him to the Court, which appears In the Alta California, or May 16, It will be seen that he throws the re sponsibility upon the Paymaster, Clark Robert D. Rogart, who has been on trial several weeks before a naval court martial for embezzle ment and desertion, made bis final argument yes terduy. The statement was quite lengthy, Mr. Hogart reviewing all the testimony and giving the history of his connection with tno transactions. He claimed that, between July 1, 1867, and Decem ber 1,1868, Clark had drawn from the safe t>etween twelve thousand and thirteen thousand dollars, In sums of about three thousand dollars, which he spent In extravagant living. This money was par tially covered up by the direction of Clark. The first false entry made to cover up this amount was made In Clark's handwriting, September 30. 1867. Hogart took this entry and showed it to the Court. Seven thousand dollars out of the $12,000 were covered up by Hogart. If It was done Clark would blame him, and, perhaps, accuse blm of embezzle ment, and that lie earned $7,000 forward by forced balance for several months. With regard to the Sherman business, Rogart gave a history of the transaction from the begin ning. The money wa# drawn from the bub Treasury and loaned to .Sherman In November, 1867, anil remained in hl? possession uutll October c, and Clark received floo per month interest. This money was secured by checks In the safe. About the 1st oi October, ihbh, the checks were de posited In the Metropolitan Rank. New York. Ten thousand dollurs of tills sum was brought on board to pay out. The other $20,000, Hogart says. Chirk Invested in government bonds. He believed, how ever, that a large portion of It was returnod to the ship and accounted for, but t hat afterwards Clark said that it was embezzled. Tie accused further stated that by Clark's direction ne made temporary entries in the cash l?ook to dispose of It. liogart admits Dint he did wrong in many instances, but denies that lie Is the one responsible. He read from speeches in Congress on Clark's Relief bill to show that Clark was considered the guilty man or the two, and spoke of the fact that the Relief bill was defeated. He admitted that he had never received a written discharge irom the navy; therefore ho supposed he must be considered a deserter; but he hiul no In tention of committing the crime. It was his belief, in mitigation of the penalty, it should be considered he had suffered enough for forty crimes. He had been Indicted six times In the civil courts, and had a Judgment.of $20,000 hanging over his head four and a half years. He had ?een tried by court martial before; was brought irom Texas heavily ironed, and kept for several mouths on board the Vermont In that con dition. In closing, he read General Order No. 162, In the rase of Paymaster Marry and others, for embez zling $40,000, wherein the accused was sentenced to tine and imprisonment, which decision had been set aside by Secretary i;ol?eson as illegal. Since that decision the rulings of the departments and naval courts had been in accordance with it. The Judge Advocate will reply, aau a decision probably be arrived at to-morrow. OBITUARY Alexander Mnnmont. A cable despatch from Rome, under date of yes terday, reports the occurrence of tne death, during the same day, of Count Alexander Manzonl, the celebrated Italian poet and novelist. He was eight-nine years of ape when the light of poetry, of romance, ol good feeling and of universal fellow ship was extinguished in his brain and heart. Count Manzonl was born in Milan on tne 8th of March, in the year 1784. He studied at Milan and In Pavla, and graduated with great distinction. His mother was a daughter of lieccarla, the author of the treatise on "Crimes and Punishments," an advauced freethinker; so that young Manzoni adopted the doctrines of Voltaire at a ver.v early age, as if by luspirutiou. When he went to Paris, in the year 1806, in company with his ma ternal parent, his name alone was sumctent Intro duction to the aaJuiis ol the very best society literary and of the strictly fashionable classes. Ills ilrst production was published in Paris in the year lHOti. It was in blank verse, and entitled "In Morte dl Carlo Imbonate." This effort was inspired by the occurrence of the death ol a dear friend. Mauzonl abandoned his Voltairian notions soou alter Its appearance. He became a very devout and sincere Roman Catholic, to which lalth his wife had been e converted. The change to the practice ol religion was soon apparent in his works. The tlrsi fruit was his "lnm Sacrl," a collection of hymns on the Na tivity. the Passion, the Resurrection, Pentecost, tUe Assumption and other graud events of Bible record. This was published in the year lsio. Ills 11 rst tragedy was entitled "llConte di Carmagn* lla." It was produced In the year 1820. The pub lication made him celebrated. This work was fol lowed t>v the tragedy of "Adeiche'' in 1823. "1 Pro messi Sposl" (the Betrothed Lovers), a Milanese history of the seventeenth century, was produced in tiie year 1827. This is considered as Mauzonl's masterpiece. It rendered his iame secure, and has long since been translated into every language In Karope. An Illustrated edition of this famous novel was brought out lu Milan in the year 1842, and lu this Manzoni added to the original text "A History of the lafamous Column." In this portion or the book lie gives a picture of the cruci execu tions to which popular superstitions gave rlao during the terrible plague of 1630.

An officer, however, appeared upon the scene and relieved them from their embarrassing situation by taking their aasailant into custody. None of the parties understanding English, Justice Hogan sent to Bax ter street lor an interpreter for the uhlnese, who was found In the person of one Wati Low.

The Crispins Succeed?The Gasmen Fail? The Horseshoere Yet Uncertain?The Carpenters and Painters on the Defensive?An Opinion from a Workingman. A renewal of the time-honored straggle between labor and capital has been so generally predicted that grave apprehenBions"have?heen entertained o. a long and protracted series of striken during the Summer. Capitalists have really dreaded the coming of the vexatious oontentlon, and It la not improbable that much work ha* been decUned by contractors from a fear that, through the strikes, they should lone money In the operations. There has, however, come a great lull In trade and com merce since the opening of Soring. The capitalist, an well oh the worfflngman, U effected thereby, but the power of money makes the former slightly Buperior to the latter In th? contest. If the Summer is to bo an exceedingly dull one for business the employer can very well afford, In a majority af cases, to let hi# men go, supplying such places as he cau from the country and realizing a greitt saving in wages. Men who aro out of employment tlnd It next to Imposslblo to get work. This statement, coming as It doea from one who to greatly Interested In the labor question anil a prime mover In the cause of work lngmen, should be remembered by all who contem plate strikes during the Summer, which Is now at hand. The men have not been euthuslaatio enough this Spring and the golden opportunity has passinl. "They must try and be conteHt until the Kali," says the authority above mentioned. Exceptions might be taken In a lew branches of industry. It is mote than probable that If the drivers of Ice wagona could create a monopoly of their business they might reuder their services In disircnsable. On the otlver hand, It is probable that every coal yard could execute all orders during the Summer with half the force requisite in Winter. These fmnortant facta the worklugmen of the city fall to remember. They strike without any union witti their fellow workmeu, or without any ade quate preparation, and they are then HUKI'UISKX) AT KAILlKK. No better example nood be cited than the strlko of the gasmen some time since. There is no ques tion tn tlie mind of any that, had the men matured their plans, secured the co-operation ot the men In the employ of even two other companies, their suc cess would have been assured. As they were the pioneers In the Spring campaign against capital it behooved them. In their duty to their cause and tiiotr prospects lor the Summer, to have delib erated well belore they began the strife. Due, probably, to their defeat Is the embarrassed situa tion in which many of the branches of labor find themselves at present. THE OPINION OF A WORKMAN. A prominent leader In the movement yesterday said to a Herald reporter"The labor movement will fall this Summer?I now leel sure of it. The men are not ready, and even if they were the time Is Ill-chosen. Ttwre Is every Indication that the season will be an exceedingly dull one, and my ad vice to all who arc uot actually threatened with a reduction of wages or a renewal of long hours is to remain at their places. There are too many men in search of employment. It looks ominous to a man who, like myself, has been for twenty vears a worklnguian here In New York. When I Bee all the trades overstocked I certainly consider It a very poor time lor tne to go out In search of a new place. Till*, however, is practically what all the men do who uow lay down their tools to go Into a strike. There is no apparent danger but that the Crispins who ?truck some time since as well as those WHO quit wvrk later will tlnaily succeed; but the railroad companies appear to have been about as well prepared lor the strike its the men were who engaged in It. I hope the men may succeed J but at present It appears rather doubtful. Taken altogetucr, I give It aa uiy opiuion ttiat the less out side agitation made by the worktugiiion lor a tew months the letter for our prospocts next year." TIIK IlolWKSHOERS STILL DKrERUINKD. The men now ou a strike for an advance ol wages are tire horsenhoers and the Crispins. The lormer have not been as successful as It was ex pected they would be. They are still very hopefttl, however, and tliere arc some evldenccB of final success. The enstom shops, with one or two ex ceptions, have surrendered to the demands of the horseshoers, and now pay $4 per day. This Is not, however, the ultimatum of success. The poweriul railroad companies, who have born for some time threatened with strikes on the part of conductors I and drivers, it would apnear, have de U-rmlned to unite against this tlrst evidence of lusubontlnaUon, and thereby to destroy the threatened power of their employes. The Second, Third, Fourth, Sixth, Seventh, Kiglith, Ninth and Tenth Avenue and the Broadway Railroad compa nies have apparently united against the strikers. Tuey refuse to compromise. They will not make any other than the old terms. They have secured such workmen a? they could outside the society, and are doing the tnist, they cau to tide over the stonu and stress period. The superintendents of the roads?many ot whom have been visited? claim that they are able to keep their horses In good condition, and that no more than the usual accidents occur. Tliey speak very conlldently now, although they admit that they did question their ability to supply the places of the strikers during the drat few days. The men, on the other hand; are in dally 8<ssaion at the corner of Twenty-sixth street and Seventh avenue. They declare that all the men except Ilfty who struck have either se cured new places or returned to their old ones at Uv? advanced wages. They declare that the non society men taken into the dei?oia by the various railroad companies are MAIMING TITK HORSES In a frlghttul manner. They appear very confident that the companies will finally have to surrender. TLere are five ibcd nt work for every one who JfJ idle and a tax Is levied upon those employed to support the men yet on strike. Those who avail themselves of the protection of the society *re required to make an affidavit that they will not go to work for less ttian |4 per day. All who aeoede to these terms receive $20 per week from U?e general fund. As they are striking for *24 per week It would appear to the uninitiated that the men who receive $20 for doing nothing have the decided advantage of those who perform ten hours of work per day and receive only $'24. The tax of eacn employed member must equal nearly $4 per week, so that both receive about the same wages. The only difference Is the ten hours' work each day. The success of the strike Is ardently desired by the men. They maintain, nevertheless, that they will stand out until next Spring rather than go to work at the old terms. MJCCK.SS OK TIIK CRISPINS. The Crispins have undoubtedly achieved the onlv real victory of the campaign. The shoe makers employed on men s boots struck for an ad vaucc In wages nearly tfirce weeks ago. hor a time success seemed doubtful, and fears were openly uttered tnat the move would prove abor tive. Their council and committees went to work tn a systematic manner. The employers who seemed disponed to treat with the men were ap? proached in a resjwcttul manner, and mas ter and man oonveraed open tho broad footing of republican equality. The repre sentatives of the men stated their case and listened with respoct to the employers' side of the question. In this manner several ul the larger establishments in the city were soou induced to come to terms. This broke down the opposition to the strike, and at present there are only six shops In the entire city in which the advanced schedule has not l>een accepted. In these shops there is not employed a single society man. The Council meets dally at 16 Spring stret and directs tne movement. The members ol the committee assert that they have more places to All than they have men to take them. Thev do not care whether the six shops still proscribed ever accede to the demands of the society or not. The workmen employed on ladles' shoes sent a notification to their employers more than two weeks ago that they would quit work on Monday last, and remain out or the shops until they were paid a new schedule or rates almost equal to that obtained by the other branch of the Crispins. The men were as pood an their word. The employers round themselves deserted, and, although their re sistance has been irauytliing more determined than that or the establishments heretofore assailed, there seems to be no question but that they wlil have to surrender In a similar manner. The run?l or the socletv l* ample, the workmen cool, sober and determined, and the number or good workmen limited. TIIK CARPRNTBRfl AN? PA1NTKKS THREATEN ISO. The carpenters ami painters called meetings ror last night. They are aasatled by a common danger, and threaten to assume the defensive at the same Identical moment.
