Investigation To Be Made As To Ills Sanity?Renewal ot the Train Mat inees. In Supreme Conrt, Chambers, before Judgo Fancher the case of George Francis Train came up vestcrday for t bearing on his petition asking that the recent verdict before Judge Davis, at the Court ot Oyer and Terminer acquitting hint of the charge of publishing ail obscene paper, tho Praia Ligue, on the ground of insanity, onil asking a writ de lunatico inqulrendo Mr. Train was In Court, accompanicd by his counsel, Messrs. W. F. Howe and Clark Bell, while to oppose the application there ap peared District Attorney Phelps and Assistant District Attorney Lyons. As might be supposed, the court room irai crowded. Mr. Bell, in opening the case, stated that they stood ready, If nece.ssarv, to strengthen the petition an 1 ac om panying affidavits by other evidence as to the sanity of Mr. Train. Judge Fancher asked when the investigation should proceed. Mr. Phelps said that he desired to make the preirnlnarv suggestion to the Court thnt at the prcix ni ttmr tv< ? << h Investigation as that asked tor could be had. The pris oner steod under the commitment of the < .nrt of Over and Terminer. The Court has adtudicated him to be in ?ane, and ordered him to be sent lo the M.ite f.uastic Asylum. As soon as he cnine under treatment in the 'A?ylutn he bccamc, under the stuiute, a patient oi the criminal eiasv and his in-nnity might then h" inquired In'o, and in ca?e of his recovi ry he might be duly dls Bharged.

Mr. Phelps asked If thev were not to presume that he whs Insane, alter a solemn adjudication ol the Court that he w as so. .Mr. Lyons, after reading tho commitment, contended that there was an adjudication made by an otlleor wfto ha t no authority to make it at tlie close ..t the trial, wbon the ilciencc of Insanity was Interposed by the pri?. oner's counsel. He did not preler the ? otirt should enter tain the present proposition. If they had come into Court an 1 allowed probable csuse that ho hud become cane sincu t:ic adludication ol tho case It would be proper. Judge Fancher said that he understood that the order Clad been delivered to tho sheriff, and that he was now li tho custody ol the sheriff under iliat order. Mr. Dyolis?Vos, sir.

The Mountain Man's Opinions on the Samana Company. THE AMERICAN CURSE OF HARD WORK. Projects Hopes and Intentions of the Revolutionists. San JUAN, April 21, 1873. Here am I since yesterday, breathing the same pure, delicious atmosphere as the renowned vaga- | bond chleltaln (uot In a disrespectful sense) wlio disturbs the peacelul slumbers of our "great and ] goodlriend'' Baez. Almost paralyzed with heat, dust and fatigue, the result of two days' Incessaut riding, I stand in the mighty presence ol the ubiqui tous Cabral. San Juan is not certainly adapted for a national capital, but it answers admirably lor the headquarters of the ragged revolutionary army which I see bivouacked In mud hnts scattered | over the magnificent plateau. Stately old cotton trees?none of your sea island vlues which a child may harvest, but trees 100 feet high?placed by the hand of nature at regular intervals, shade the majeBtic splendoi* of the panorama, while the setting sun, shooting Its carmine glow through the | dark foliage of tlieir branches, lends A SENSUOUS ENCHANTMENT to the scene. My travelling companion and guide, Oeneral Deetjen, rouses me Irom my revery and escort* mo to meet our advancing host, to whom 1 am presented in my official character. Very little ceremony is observed at the Introdnction j but when my cicerone informs his chief?for 1 learn that Deetjen is an Envoy Extraordinary of the moun tain President?of my perseverance to gain an In terview with him, His Excellency seizes me Impetu ously with both his Presidential hands, saying, In tne purest of Queen's English:? ??I ain delighted, sir; deeply obliged for the In terest manifested by you in my fortunes, and l request that you will convey to the proprietor of the great potentate of newspapers, the New York Herald, my sincere thanks for your visit. ti1k ST. DOMINGO COMMISSION. "Two years ago three eminent gentlemen,charged by your illustrious Senate to visit St. Domingo and to find out the real feeling of the Dominican peo ple in regard to the annexation of their country, the annihilation of their autonomy?I say these three eminent gentleman, charged with such an important mission, tailed to come here, sir; failed because they did not thluk the voltes of 10,000 citi zens who obey my authority should weigh in the scale ol such an Important measure. Particularly for this reason I am glad that you have come, for, though your journal expresses at times somewhat of contempt tor our race, it still stands up with its mighty luilucnce as a Colossus against the per sistent attempts of mercenary politicians to de prive us of our humble but cherished nationality. Next to the powerful eloquence of your honored Senator Sumner, that illustrious philanthropist, 1 look upon the Independent, fearless Herald as the great barrier to T11K MOST STUPENDOUS CRIME which official cupidity has ever attempted to con summate. But you are fatlgmd, amioo; to-mor row we will talk." 1 confess this rongi gave me Immense relief. I was gratelul lor the kind reception; but 1 was for the nonce bored with the gentle old man's gar rulity. 1 follow in the wake of my coinpaulon, who conducts me to an unoccupied hammock, In which 1 throw myself. Amid the merry chirrup of In numerable mitsiciPM which, with their four dis tinct notes of the gamut, "do-rc-ml-ra,'' sevm to sing the rising silvery moon, with the oMigato of the wild gurgling of a neighboring stream and the tragrant softness of a voluptuous breeze, 1 was very soon lulled into a proiouud slumber. This morning's dawn, with its soft, benignant tinges, afforded me the same lood for contemplation as the preceding sunset. I am Tery soon tntormed that Kl lTexldenlt' expected me to honor him with my presence at breakfast, and, alter taking a cold dip in the crystal stream which runs through a wild ravine close by, I repair, quite equal to the task of meting out full Justice to the rustic repast which awaits. A MOUNTAIN BREAKFAST. Coffee, milk, a cold haunch of mountain deer, basso, roasted sweet potatoes and cassavas and a variety of luscious fruits comprised the Irugal meal. THE INTERVIEW. "1 perceive, Oeneral, you have quite a pleasant life out here. Mauy of our New York milllonnaires would give much of their wealth to be able to breathe the pure atmosphere In which you live." AND YET HE IS NOT HAPPY. Cabrai.?And yet, amigo, 1 am tired of it. I have been three years In these woods now, combating the wicked policy of that perjuror, Baez, and I ask nothing more than to b3 able to return to the bosom of my family after having secured beyond peradventure the autonomy ol our sacred soli. Correspondent?Have you much hope oi attain ing your end t Caural?Sow more than ever. The cession of the Bay of Samana to a private company ot specu lators Is Baez's coup de grace. Curlel's efforts to explain this act of hl?h treason to the people have only tended to aggravate the popular discontent, and the whole Northern line, commanded by Gar cia. has already shown signs of disaffection, which, you may depend, the revolutionary Generals, Pl mentcl and Luperon.wlll not fail to take advantage of. Once a disruption is effected In Oarcla's troops in the North I march with 2,000 men upon Azua, and the whole demoralized fabric controlled by that gran traftdor, Baez, will give way and the revolu tion will be an acctmpllshed fact. THE SAMANA COMPANY. Correspondent?In such case what wuM be your action In regard to the Samana Hay troaty? Cabral?Well, that would depend upon the dis position and feeling of the representatives of the peoplo who would be constitutionally returned irom all ihe provinces. At present liaez has a Senate which is his own creation, atii the mem bers are compelled?traitors like hlmscir?to obey his will. For ay part, I am not averse to seeing forelgu capital introduced for the development of the Immense resources of our prolific country, but 1 do oppose any tacit compromise of our national integrity. I really believe that on account of the impression generally prevailing among the Domini can people that the occupation of Samana by Americans is but annexation In disguise; that the treaty and TIIH COMPANY WILL FAR* VERY BADI.Y should tlie revolution succeed. But, of course, tins is only my Individual opinion, and I desire you to understand clearly, Utilor Corresponml, that 1 do not make war on Baez from personal am bitious motives; for to disprove this there exists the lact that 1 was the one wlio tlrst called him Irom his obscurity and placed him in the high po sition which he hus so abused and degraded. I make war on him because he has betrayed, from his inauguration, the liberties or the people?be cause he hus transformed our thinly populated country into one vast camp, and because he has appropriated to his own personal uses the entire revenues of the State. Correspondent?Then you really think, General, that the Samana Bay Company of St. Domingo Is an unsucccssiul speculation? THE UUHDIN OF HARD TOII.1NO. Cabrai.?1 do. Seflor. Particularly because our people, who are accustomed to a life oi ease, 1 may say indolence, will Hud a remarkable difference when they shall have to coinpeto with American enterprise and energy to earn the ordinary ueces aarics ol lllo. It had been better tor General (Irant to leave ua alone to work out out own situation. Perhaps when our people will be more advanced, annexation an a State In the Union would be desirable, but even then, were I living, I should oppose it with my last drop of blood. Look at Cali fornia and Texas I What have the original inhab itants gained by annexation f Absolutely nothing. Your hardy Northerners bave driven them out, killed them or kept them In a state of abject ser vitude. At all events they bave almost entirely disappeared, ft cannot be said that they bave become homogeneous, for wherever they are still round they are exactly the same primitive race

they ever were. The Latin race, especially WIIKM MIXKD WITH THE AM IR1C AN-INDIAN, never can become homogeneous wltU the Anglo ,Saxon. Cokkbstonoknt?I suppose. General, you favor one government for the entire island r (Jarhal?Well, camartuW, I d?, if it were possi ble; but a set of flendH like Baez have established such strong prejudices in tne minds of tne Domini can people against the Iiayttan that It is next to impossible to undeceive them. C'0BiiESi*0NnBNT?Are you supported in this war fare upon Baen by the Haytian governments Caiiral?1 may say I am and I am not, if you can understand the cuntradiotiou. I know I have the sympathies not of the government only, hut of the eutire population, who are well aware that TURIH INPKI'KNDKNOE IS MKNAOKD ALSO. Itut [ got little or 110 material help, and you know that in war nothing can be dono without the ntrims rprwn oerentfarttm. At present I depend lor success solely on the patriotism of my couutry mon. which, under the circumstances, I regret to say, Hags sometimes. At this point the conversation flags also and be comes desultory. Nothing remains for one but to thank the General lor his kindness, whereupon he again bursts forth upon the grandeur of the New York Hkram> enterprise, and reiterates his thauks to the proprietor for having sent a correspondent to Ills camp. OAnBAU Cabral Is a "pure mulatto," with, I should judge, nothing of the aborigines in his Composition. He Is a genial companion, of frank and gentle disposi tion, of liberal education, having graduated at the l.ondon University, and, as may be expected, speaks English fluently. "Happy thought!" It Is time to leave this beautlftil wilderness. HAYTI. The Northern Revolutionist Succeiui?

LEGISLATIVE SESSION AND PARLIAMENTARY PROG | RKSS. The first sitting of the fourteenth Legislature on the 22d ultimo was a stormy one. As it had been previously whispered around, however, that trouble would ensue if the administration found itself supported by only a minority of the Deputies in its vlewn on the Presidential succession, the re tirement of eighteen members, partisans of General Domingue, created very little surprise. During the balloting here and in other communes last January it appears tno Executive threw the whole weight of Its influence against all candidates who were sus pected of being opposed to its views, and especially against those who had formed part of the opposi tion in the last Legislature. In fact, from what I learn, the military authorities used every measure to the very verge of legality to prevent any but partisan candidates of government from election. In this city, alter it wa publicly anuounced that, in spits of all menaces, the opposition candidate, Mr. Iloycr Ba/.elals, President of the last Chamber of Deputies and an unmitigated opponent of the pre tensions of General Domingue to the elder magis tracy, had been elected by an overwhelming ma jority, the military attacked the polls, arrested and imprisoned a number of voters, the alarm guns were tired and the city was declared in a state of siege. Dunns the disorder which this condition of affairs created the proofs verbal establishing the election of Mr. Boyor Hazelals was purloined or lost. Hence it was determined to challenge his right to a scat in the House, and this was the cause of the stormy proceedings at the first meet lug 01 the Corps Legislatll. TIIK NATIONAL KEHIE3ENTATION consists of seventy-five Deputies elected directly by the people lor three years, and thirty Senators elected by the deputies for three and six years, fmm names sent in by the different communes of the Kcpublic. Both houses form what Is called the National Assembly, which elects the President for tour years; se that every new chamber of Deputies elects a certain proportion of Senators. The con stitutional quorum lor each body is two-thirds of its respective members. From the causcs above given only sixty-live Deputies have been elected, and so, when Mr. Bazeials was declared legally entitled to his seat by a majority ol tho House, the eighteen government members believed that by protesting against his admission and simply retiring they would forco him to resign. as their retirement would leave the House in minority and prevent it from legislating. Gcueral firtce. a sharp, clever fellow, late Kuvoy Extraordinary to tiuropc, de clared that the forty-lour members remaining from the slxty-tw* that had until then reached the capital was a constitutional two-thirds majority of the members elected, whereupon the House elected General Price ita President and notified the Executive that it was prepared to receive Ins message. The Senate supported the Chamber, but the Executive refused to recognize Ita constitu tional existence. Meantime the eighteen seceding ?embers sent an address to the President, placing dictatorial powers in his hands, upon which the otuer mem bers protested. Matters continued thus for several days, when It was decided to work without the President: but the eighteen dissidents gained several other inemoers to their ranks by the use of money, anil, as matters began to look threatening irora the surrounding of the Chambers by military, under command of the Indomitable Lorqiiet, com mander of this arrundlasemtnf, the remaiuing members withdrew under protest. THE MINISTRY became alarmed, and two members resigned. With immense difficulty the President succeeded in find ing an able Secretary tor the portfolio of the in terior; but up to this date, though ten day a have elapsed, no one has been found willing to succeed to the empty exchequer. Fears are consequently generally felt of an uprising, and when the terrible conflagration on the 27th ult? which consumed nearly one hundred retail stores, and occasioned a less of at least one million of dollars, occurred, the catastrophe was looked upon as one of the re sults of the political squabble between the Legisla ture and the Executive, Tne latter has, however, convoked the Legislature in extraordinary session for the first Monday ol July doubtless with the pre arranged piau of ordering entirely new elections should the members fail to agree a second time. General Domingue was sent for, and lie came with troops, but no disturbance has as yet broken out. Foreign merchants look on this state of affairs as ominous lor the future, and the banking bouses have runup premtuum on torrlini exchange to five per centum. But I believe the old President to be a weil-meaning man, and if he sees in July that lie can not slip Domingue in the rauteuli which lie vacates without causing a civil war he will let his irlend "slide." Tho Salomonlates ure evidently mobilizing, to take advantage of the moment when the other fac tions come to blows to step in and proclaim In lavoroi their chief. JAMAICA. Conveyance of the Malls and Passengers to New York?Irregularities of the Contract System?The Weather Hot and Dry, and Crops in a Critical Condi tion?Treasury JAnllclpatlon of a Hope ful Income?.\avaI Display at Kingston. Kingston, Jam., May 17,187.1. The commercial .section of the public Is greatly exasperated at tho Irregular manner In which the contract for the conveyance of the mails, Ac., between this city and New York is carried out, and the clamor is as great now in favor of entering into a ireah engagement as it was some months ago. It was complained that Jamaica did not get enough in return for the subsidy which she paid; no preference was allowed her in anything; there was no accommodation reserved for passengers, no space reserved ror cargo and, added to all these, there wm ao ccrtalut/ as to tuo i^q ?( aaivnl i and departure of the steamers, and consequently the shippers of fruit could not make their ven turea but at the risk of loss. If matters were bad iu this respect before, they are now found to be a thousand times worse. THE WRATH BR AND TUB CROP. The seasons are still holding back. The month of May is the time when we look forward lor our vernal showers?the most favorable in lorwardiug the plauts lor vbe sugar crop of the current rear; but, instead of the customary hne seasonable rains, the dry weather, amounting almost to a drought, continues throughout the Island. There is 110 va riation from the scorching rays of the sun, accom panied by au equally scorching sea breeze, every where drying up vegetation and killing otT the young canes. The yield of sugar this year has been short, und the fear is entertained that It will b?, shorter next year. The coffee trees, however, look promising, and if there be a lew timely showers there will lu all likelihood be a good crop next year. THIS RKVINUB. The official returns of the lievenue Department are not yet published; but it is whispered outside the Treasury that, so far, there are Indications that the large surpluses which have been shown on the annual transactions during tne past three years will again recur tills year. This is most fortunate lor Sir Joiiu Grant, whose financial management has been Wis crowning enort of his truly sucucsslul administration. It is questionable, however, whether, if the drought continues, there will not be a falling otT next year: for there will be not on!,v less taxable property, out the laboring class, from the want of employment,'win not be in a po sition to pay the amount of taxes that (alls to their sharo.

American Diplomacy and a Reciprocity Fuu la tike Capital. Honolulu, May 0. 1873. We liave a alight tempest in tne diplomatic world owing to a lean in tbe United States Lega tion. Rumor has it that the United States Minister Resident has been showing despatches from the State Department which do not mark out a liberal policy with this kingdom?simply a policy of let alone. In the present critical condition of affliirs this rumor has incensed merchants and sugar planters, who now demand that the Minister mak" public the gist of the despatch, In order either to confirm the rumor or prove Its falsity. As a mat ter of course the Minister is roundly blnmed by some, while others deTeud him. The Minister has requested local papers to keep quiet about the whole airalr, but the .Wto.i has opened the ball in a lively way. It Is now proposed to make overtures to the New South Wales government for a treaty oi recipro city, and the proposal Is well received by our mer chants. LITERARY CHIT-CHAT. The Life of Edward Bui.wjck Lytton Is to be written by his son Robert, better known as "Owen Meredith," and author of "Luelle," ??The King of Amaals" and much poetic ltterature. Harriet Kenimohe Cooper, one of the two lit erary daughters of the American novelist, will soon publish a "IliBtory of the Oneida Tribe of In dians." The English Writer calling himself January Searle has gone mad. His real name la George S. Phillips. A New Literary and art periodical 1b atarted in Paris, under the name of Musie des Deux Monties. Jules Jaoin and Paul Lacrolx are among the editors, and It will bo published semi-monthly, like the Revue des Deux Monties. It will be illus trated by chromo8, reproducing masterpieces of the best artists. Ever Since the Publication, more than twenty Ave years ago, of the late Walter R. Johnson's ?Government Report on American Coals," there has been an annually increasing want of a coal manual which should do justice to this vast mining Industry. The vacuum is well filled by Mr. Juiues Maclarlane's "Coal Regions of America," which D. Appleton A C?. have Just isstfed in a hand some Illustrated octavo volume of 700 pages. Its numerous maps show all the coal belts In the various States, so lar as yet developed, and its copioia and clearly written text gives the Informa tion previously scattered through numerous volumes, periodicals, scientific papers and unpub lished reports, inaccessible to the lnqnlrer. The bituminous coal fields are here for the first time fully described, while the anthracite regions of Pennsylvania receive adequate notice. Mr. Smiles' excellent book, "Seir-IIelp," has been translated into Japanese, and adopted as a government text book. Noah Webster used to spread his favorite ideas of the spelling reform by travelling about from printing office to printing office and handing printed slips contnlutng the words "theater," "center," Ac., to persuade pcopio to spell as he did. This was before the ravenous demand oi the great American people for dictionaries furnished him with a more effective propaganda than a peri patetic one. 1' rom 1831 to 1872 about two hundred thousand new publications were issued in Germany. The Publication of a great literary and scientific work has been commenced by M. Van Bemmel, pro fessor at the University of Brussels. It bears the title, "Patria Beljilcu," and Is to comprise ail that is known about Belgium. Amertkanischer Botschajler (American Messen ger) is the name of a new periodical devoted to German-American interests and published in Stutt gart. A New Edition, and much needed, of "Curtis on the Law of Copyright." will soon appear iroin tbe press of Little, Brown k Co. William Lloyd Garrison said recently that he had set type enough to form a tvpographlc rail road from Boston to Liverpool. "The History or Pottery is the history of hu manity." At all events, so says M. Albert Jacque mart, who has given to the world a highly Inter esting "History of the Ceramic Art," in which he tract's the fashions of dishes in all ages and among all races, from Egypt to Birmingham. Mr. J. J. MfRriiY has written a book on "The Scientific Bases of Belief," in which he ably Hcts forth the arguments for theism. He reviews the work of tne leading Christian apologists of the last century, but with an eye to the changed methods of thought and investigation that prevail. Another Like ok Jesus is put forth In Germany, this time bv Dr. Kolm, a professor at Glessen Uni versity. The book attracts much attention In theo logical circles abroad. THE SMALL HABEAS CORPUS CASE. Judge Kancher's Explanation. New York, May 28, 1873. To the Editor of tiie Herald:? in reierence to certain communications pub lished m to day's Herald, I desire to state that thero Is an entire misapprehension of the facts on the part of the writers. I never supposed that the Lady Superioress of the St. Barnabas Hoiue was a Protestant; but did suppose that she was a Catho lic, and that the institution was a Catholic instttu tlon. I also thought the clergyman who spoke for the little girl was a Catholic priest, who had klndiy Intervened bctweeu the child's mother and lather. He stated thu girl was in a good place and did not want to go with her father, and this rhe girl herself corroborated, otrourse, therefore, the imputation made that I leaned too much to Protestant guar dianship of a child of Catholic parents is wiiollv unwarranted, lours truly, E.

Lively Times with Trap and Trig ger in the West. Miles Johnson Beats Bogardus at Doable Birds? Paine Defeated by Both the Klein man Brothers. Cbicauo, III., May 23. ihtx We have bad of pigeon shooting?as the irate boarder Haul about bis coffee?"plenty or It, suofc as It was," as nearly a dozen matches have take* place at this city or in the vicinity during the past week. There was first an excellent handicap sweep, tben a very doubtlul championship match between Bogardus aud Tinker, then an equally dubious contest between Bogardus and Paine, then a genuine and good shoot between Abe Klein man and Paine. Since then there have been half a dozen matches of local and general importance. some or which were bona Jlde, one, at least, "with Intent to deceive.'' In pigeon shooting the same drift and direction arc noticeable which have in variably characterized all sports wherein there is ? "close corporation" of artists and an outside pub lic willing to wager. "When money com-s in at the iloor sport flies out through the window." An it has been in the American prize ring and pedes trian arena, and as it would be In the billiard circle were it not lor the personal animosities oi some of the leading professionals, so it seems to be In the pigeon-popping fraternity. Ii starving and welting snowblrus when the match is to kill a I given number or putting dead birds iuto plunge traps and similar artltlces are resorted to wttnln the fraternity, it Is only "don eat dog." Hut 1 "roping in" spectators with "championship con tests" where the stakes are lu what Jim Fisk called "phantom gold" and posting confederates outside to bet In advance what birds will be missed is, In in the words or Mark Twain, "rather monotonous." Having thus spoken generally, now for details. DOUBLE BIRD CHAMPIONSHIP. The double bird championship was slfet for at Bloomlngtou on Monday, the competitors being Miles Johnson, the champion, and A. H. Bogardus, the challenger. Twenty-five double rises were shot at, under Khode Island rules, for $200 a side. Bo gardus had the call among the outsider*, but among the initiated Jotiuson was backed for what little money was put up. The Captaiu took the lead, and, owing to "the boy's" drawing double blank on his filth rise, had 9 to 7 at the first five, increasing his advantage to 18 to IS on the next ten birds, lu the next ten Johnson, lulling 0, nut within one of his antagonist, and on tho fourth, killing 8, took a lead of l, which he held te '' the finisn and increased by auother, retaining the championship. Tho weather was favorable and the birds strong. Johnson had rather the bet ter luck In hitting Ills birds, liogardus a shade the better fortuue in the way they flew. The following is the SUMMARY. Bloominoton, III., May 19, 1873.?Match at twenty Ave double rises, lor $600 and the championship oi America, between Miles Johnson, of New Jersey, champion, and A. H.

On Wednesday, at Dexter Park, there were two very good and square exhibitions of the explosive art. The first was lor $100, between John Klein man and Edward Bow?50 single rises, plunge traps, 21 yards rise and 80 yards boundary. Alter some good shooting the men tied at 42 eaeli. On shootli-.g off, at 5 single rises each, Kleinman killed 4 te Dew's 3 and won. The second match was for a similar stake and under the same conditions, be tween John Kleinman and Kdward Price, Klein mau, alter a fine display, winning by lour birds.

To-day two matches were shot at Dexter Park, In both of which Ira A. Paine contested and was defeated, his opponents being two or the Klein man brothers. The first was with Abe Kleinman, a trap and handle match, 50 single rlBes. 21 yards rise and 80 yards boundary. There was no betting on the match, inasmuch as doubts were cast upoa its genuineness. Kleinman led all the way up te the thirty-eighth rise, where Paine, who was six behind, retired In disgust. The score then stood 34 to 28, three of Klelnman's blanks being birds that were killed and fell outside or bounds. Palue's ten lost birds were clean misses.

The secoud match was a very brilliant display ot shooting and provoked a good deal of speculation. It was between PAINK AND JOHN KLEINMAN, 50 single rises from live gi ound traps, English rules, for $200. Paiue shot at 28 yards rise, giving Klein man three yards; the boundary was 80 yards. The betting was lively at evens, Palne's skill being fully made up tor br the handicap, whicn was more than sufllclcut to nentralize it. Both men shot splendidly. Klelnman's luck was somewhat the better, as more of ralne's birds got away after being hit, two fluttering out of the bousda as the gatherer was within a step or them. Of Klelnman's seven misses, five roll dead beyond bounds. The betting alter the twenty-eighth rise was In favor or the man re ceiving edds, who finally won a well contested match by two bjfds; Paine publishing his private opinion to tills eifect:?"ira A.
