Baltimore, Mil., May 20, 1873. The attendance at Pimlico Course to-day was very large, all tbe stands and Held being well filled with delighted spectators. The racing was all good, but particularly the two-mile-heat race be tween Messrs. Rice A McCormick's chestnut horse Stockwood, Isaac W. Pennock's Vandal colt, Jo Donohue's chestnut horse Sanrord and Oden Bowie's Eawin. Three finely contested heats were required, the first being won by the Vandal colt ?nd the two subsequent ones by Stockwood. Ban ford was sent to the stable after tbe second heat. The Vandal colt is brother to James B. Connolly, but not a first class racehorse, or he never could have been beaten in tbe company he was in. Tbe first race was a very interesting event, from the fact that tbe pool selling on it was heavy. Mr. Lewis'colt Joe Johnson, ana Mr. Brown's chestnut Ally Coronet, were the rivalB, although there were two others in the contest. Joe Johnson was known to be a good one, but he bad sulked a few times lately, un this occasion be was run with blinkers, with Bob Swim to steer him. He won a good race and gave great satisfaction. Tbe third race, mile and three quarters, was not a brilliant affair, as it was won by the lavorite quite easily. Tbe winner was Chickabiddy, late Echo, who was handicapped with twenty pounds less than her regular weight. The last event of tbe day was a four mile dash, which had four starters. The race was won by Jobn^Merryman, and the favorite, Village Black raaitn, was badly beaten. The following are the details of tbe day's racing:? DASH OF ONE AND A QUARTER MILES.

Tbe latter and Coronet sold for about even money?just before the start, however, the others bringing next to notmng. The send-off was a very good one, Coronet getting away a little the best, John Preston second, Pennock's colt third, Joe Johnson fourth. They rattled merrily up tbe homestretch to the stand, and when they passed nnder tbe string Pennock's colt led one length, Coronet second, one length ahead of John Preston, who was a length and a hall in front of Joe John son. There was no change of place around tbe turn, but Pennock's colt opened a gap or five lengths to the qnarter pole.

Tbe mare kept up the clip around the lower turn and up the homeBtretcn, and as she passed the stand at the completion of tbe first mile she was lour lengths In front of John, the lat ter ten ahead of Villas. There was no change of place during the second mile until near the stanu, when John Merryman went up to the mare's head and they passed under the wire yoked, eighty yards m iront of tne Blacksmith. Going around the upper turn on the third mile John parted company with tbe old mare, and his rider giving him a loose rein he opened a gap of biz lengths on Lucy to the half mile pole and was loo yardB away from Village Blacksmith The backers of the latter could not understand how it was that their favorite was al lowing himself to be left so far behind, but some of them began to think that he was doing his best and that if John Merryman did not lall down they would lose their money. John came under the wire at the end of the third mile eighty yards ahead of the Blacksmith, the old mare huving given up the contest. John went Into the last mile so far ahead of the Blacksmith that the race was practi cally over. He was Kept moving at the top of his speed, which was none or the fastest now, but it was even better than Village Blacksmith's.

H. Phillips' sorrel mare Fanny Fern; but the latter was withdrawn. Tbe attendance was very limited. In the pools sold Topsey was tbe favorite?$26 to $10? and the betling for a while was quite spirited. The old mare won the first and second heats in style, but tbe tblrd, after a stubborn contest the entire mile, was placed to tbe credit of Mercer, who beat his opponent by a head only. Much interest was manifested 10 tbe result of the fourth heat, some thinking that the gelding might pull through a winner, but the old mare had plcntv ol steam in reserve, and landed tbe winner of beat and race by two lengths.

General Hollablrd, Assistant Quartermaster General, and General Wilcox, of the Twelltb in fantry, arrived to-day. Secretary of War Belknap will reach here on Monday, and preparations have already been made to properly receive them. President Grant is ex pected to arrive on tbe 16th of June, to remain several days. Already many of tbe cottages are filled with Summer visitors, and the Post has a magnificent appearance. By Saturday a large influx of visitors is an ticipated, because on that day the Mary Powell and the day boats commence their trips. <>u Saturday, too, Cozzens' Hotel wlll|i?e opened for the season. Tbe President ol the board of Visitors is Hon. M. Russell Thayer. ol Pennsylvania, and tbe Secretary, James H. McMullan. o) Maine.

(From the Albany Argus, May 20.] Tbe following table gives tbe valuation of each county, tbe amount by each on the one-sixteenth of a mill tax, levied for tbe benefit of sectarian in stitutions by the Legislature, the number of aca demic pupils in each county in 1671, as shown by the report of tbe Regents of tbe University for 1871, and the amount whicb will be received by each county on the basis of the apportionment or 1672, from the proceeds of tbe sectarian tax. The num ber of pupils may vary somewhat the current year, and ir so the amount derived will be changed; but the ratio will remain substantially as here given.

The Special Committee of the Board of Aldermen on Gas met last night and continued tbeir investi gation. in order to report to the Board as to whether it would be advisable for the authorities to manufacture ite own. Mr. Bensen, the President of the Brooklyn Gas Company, testified that the present capital oi tbe company was $2,000,000. It was five or six years after the company started, he said, before they were able to declare any dividend, and the first dividend waa three per cent on the stock. The company waa started by a gentleman from Phila delphia. Their present dividend averaged from twenty to twenty-five per cent. They bad sold parcels of land to otner companies. They sold tbe first parcel to the Citizens' Gaslight Company. They purchased that aoutb of Fiutbush avenue lor $160,000. They sold another to the People's Gas light Company for $600,000, and another district to ttie Nassau Gaslight Company for $1,000,000. When the company first started the price of gas was $4 per thousand feet, but as the facili ties for manufacturing It increased the price decreased to $2 60 per thousand. Alter the war broke o'ot tbe price ol material and labor increased and they had to increase the price or gas to $3 24: thev now manufactured about lour hundred Ifilllion feet or gas animailv. Mr. Lifetiy. president of the Citizens' Gas light c&mpany, testified that they started on a capital of $1,000,000, nnd nad since increased it $200,000; the cost of building tl-.fc works was $?76,000; they had sold a district to the Metropolitan Gaslight Company for $200,000 in cash and $300,000 in stock. The vcar aTter they started they deuiarcd a dividend of six per cent, and they had since increased to fifteen per cent. Their taxes to the city amounted to twenty-five per ceut and tbeir waste to about ten per cent. Mr. George Hall, Secretary of the Brooklyn Gns Company, corroborated the testimony of Mr. Len son. The committee then adjourned. PROBABLE WIFE MUfiDEB.

Okand Hotel Hdnoaria, ] Pksth, Hungary, May 11, it,73. > This morning, at nine o'clock, there was an un usual bustle at tlie offices of the Danube steam 1'acket Company on the Franz Josef's Quay at Vienna The ordinary steamer hail started as usual at half past sue o'clock; bat the Ariadne, the finest boat belonging to the company, lay alongside, with her steam up and evidently prepared to start. The loailng crowd could get no satisfactory replies to their inquiries, and the riddle was not solved until the arrival of three carriages, from which issued the Prince of Wales and Prince Arthur, attended by the members of their suite, and accompanied by two or three gentlemen who had been invited to accompany thiB essentially private party on a trip which they were abont to make down the Danube. The Austrians arc so accustomed to the sight of their rulers attired in dazzling uniforms and sur rounded by pomp and formality that the by standers seemed hardly able to comprehend that the young men in round hats and plain morning dress, who stepped quietly from their carriage to the gangway, raising their hats In acknowledg ment of the profuse salaams of the boat officials, could belong to the salt of the world. It had been specially requested by the Prince of Wales that his visit to Hungary should bo regarded as entirely non-official, and that though be retained his title he should be spared the tiresome ceremonial which awaits every person of rank in this land of punc tliious etiquette. The baggage was hurried on board, and within five minutes of the Prince's ar rival the steamer was under way. The banks of tho Danube for many miles after leaving Vienna are flat and uninteresting. Here and there a rough wall of loose stones has been thrown up to resist the encroachment of the water; but the general character of the landscape be tokens the impossibility of cultivation, and the fields seem scarcely yet to have recovered from the devastation of the wintry floods. Stunted, shock beaded palsied willows, with an occasional poplar, are the only trees; the grass is long and rank, and flags and bulrushes thickly fringe the stream. No attempt at division of the land seems to have been made; all Is common property, though here and there, where the herbage Ib of better quality and more fitted for grazing purposes, one comes upon a vast herd of dun-colored, long-horned cattle, or a drove of small, wiry, shaggy horses, some brows ing, some galloping wildly about in terror at the snorting steame*. At intervals of every two or three miles we glide past a long row of barges, some of which Have been formed into water mills,' while the others are converted into residences for those who look after the grinding of the meal. Ac cording to the tradition of song, millers are a joy ous, lively race, but it would be difficult to imagine a more solitary, chcerles* life than the lot of these men, "one side water all around" them, and such land as they can see, barren, desolate and forbid ding. Of active life on the river there Is scarcely any sign. The stream is split into so many branches and winds its way through so many devious chan. nels, between islands teeming with rank vegeta tion and high sand banks, that anything like a distant prospect Is impossible. Occasionally we come upon a steamer tugging a fleet of heavily laden barges against the Btream, and then there is an interchange of courtesy be tween the two crews which is perfectly Eastern in ItsprofuseneBs. Each captain on the bridge raises his gold-laced cap and lays his hand on his heart; each mate half way down the companion ladder docs ditto; even the helmsmen are so intent upon bowing and saluting that they let go their hold on the wheel for a moment, heedless of the danger ous navigation. nrNOARMN corrrMFS. The Ariadne has been chartered specially for the Prince's UBe, and none but members of his party and the ship's company are on board, so that there Is little chance of seeing any of the Hungarian national character. Nevertheless, as we steam quickly by the various landing stages we catch glimpses of the people waiting there for the up stream boat-a strange variety, indeed. Women in sao colored garments, with naked legs and feet, and bearing on their backs huge and heavy burdens! baskets of garden produce, or lime or peat, or bil lets of wood loosely tied together; peasants in Bhaggy woollen capotes and flapping hats; men of the better class in long for-embroidered cloaks or profusely braided Jackets and high boots, remind ing one of Kossuth in his famous days; thin, wiry Jews in gabardines reaching to tleir heels, giiB tening with grease, and with their greasy hair tor tured into ringlets and hanging over tnelr shoul ders; frowzy shepherds scratching suspiciously under their uttered garments, and dlrt-begrlmed children, naked and not ashamed. SIOIITS ALONG THE DANUBE. The main object of the Ariadne Is to arrive at her destination within twelve hours after her depar ture and to make as few stoppages as possible; consequently we steap rapidly by some places whicb have at least an historical interest This small, dull town fringing the water's edge Is Pres burg, and within the fortress crowning the hill immediately overlooking It, and whereof the four outer walls still remain, the Magyar chivalry, nearly a hundred and flity years ago, were so wrought upon by the beauty and eloquence of Maria Teresa, who appeared In their midst, bear ing her iniant son in her arms, that they, with one accord, waved their glittering swords in th? air and swore that memorable oath ?"Moriamur pro Reqr noftro, Maria Trreaa." Purthcr on is Komorn, one of the strongest for- i tresses In Europe, where the Hungarians, in the war of '49, under General Kiapka, successfully re sisted all attempts of the Auotrians to dislodge them. The comparison so often made between the Danube and the Rhine does not strike one until some little distance below Komorn, when the flatness of the river banks Is gradually re lieved by the npsprlnging of a chain of hills, cov ered with vineyards, which increases in boldness and in range until it forms a magnificent purpie hued background for the Cathedral of Orau which is perched on the summit of a nre cipitous rock overhanging the river, and is undoubtedly the most picturesque object on the whole voyage. That eccentric but wonderlullv powerful artist, Mr. J. W. M. Turner, would have made a splendid picture ol (irau Cathedral: so could < larkson Man held, and Heath could have en graved it for bis "Landscape Annual.'' It is more than probable that Mr. Chevalier, a gentleman at tached to the Prince's suite, will depict the scene as observed from the Ariadne's deck?the cupola bathed In the soit rays of the setting sun, the river dimpled with the reflections of light and shadow, whirling swiftly round the base or the steep crag, the green vineyards and the white houses ol the town standing out in bold relief against the sombre background or purple mountain. The ruins of Visaegrad. a cluster of towers and battlemented walls on the summit of an isolated hill, are said to equal in Wild grundeur the finest scenery to be found on the Rhine, but it was too dark as we steamed by to rorm anything like an adequate ap preciation of them. Far away in the distance glimmer the lights of i'estn, a wavering line of lamps connecting the long ranges of the bril liantly lit streets with the shifting tapers in the Huda cottages, marking the outline of the suspen sion bridge, and in a few minutes the Ariadne slides unoer the shadow of the fortress surmount inir Hiocksberg. and quietly takes up her pontiou alongside the rfjuay. ' v RXC1SSIVK CURIOSITY D1PAPF01NTKD. The voyage down the river had been performed so quietly aud the Princes had been so perlectly free from intrusion that it was Imagined their in cognito should have been respected and their R^nce in the Hungarian capital unremarked th?8 120ft ver' at once dispelled when, by the light ol the rising moon, one saw the vast masses of humanity lining the quay and stretching Jar away into the neighboring streets. The paddles ne l*"1 scarcely ceased tc revolve bo fere three energetic uoatiemeu. in lull evening cot I wWlfrtfwrt no bire-tMded, bad ihmI on board, and, making their war to the Prince jointly and severally bore down upon htawlth & dresses or welcome and congratulation. ItIs pos sible that the Burgomaster, the principal speaker, might have been ax lengthy as hia prototype in tne opera of "Genevieve de Brabant." but Colonel Kodsliteb, who has been deputed by the Emperor to attend on bis English guests, cut the worth* magistrate very short and Ted tbe way to the car riage* in waiting. The crowd, by whom the Prince was received with great enthusiasm, was so dense that it waa with the utmost difficulty that the horBes could move, but they struggled on until they reached the doors or his hotel, and then the conrueion culminated. The front or the hotel is on the Corso, the fine river promenade, but the entrance is in a small and narrow bide street. Through this culvert the mob surged furiously to and iro. By dint oi whipping and shouting the coachman breught hU horses up to the portico, but the carriage was so hemmed in and surrounded by the crowd that it was impossible tor those inside tbe vehicle to open the door or for the porter and waiters to fight their way through and extricate their distinguished visitors. A handful of police was swept away like Autumn leaves on a swollen stream; a hair dozen soldiers, acting as sentries were borne back, and flattened like moths against: the wall. Inside the house the scene was almost as bad. The hall and staircases were lined with real or pretended guests or the hotel. In vain the pro prietor with folded hands implored them to retire, in vaiu the: soldiers on guard trampled on their toes or poked their backs with the butt-ends or their muskets. To gratify their cariosity, to catch night ?f the Prince, they would have borne any amount; ol pain. Thcv were, however, doomed to disap pointment. Finding it impossible to leave the car nage tke Prince drove off to dinner at the Casino, or Noble's Club, and stole quietly back to tbe hotel on foot, and unrecognized, at midnight. Monday, May 12. The Archduke Joseph, who represented his brother, the Emperor, at Pesth, ts determined that, his guest, who hud iiut a limited time nt hia dis posal, should not lack lor amusement during bis stay, aid accordingly this mernlng there waa a grand breakiast at the Archduke's palace on tha Margaret Island. This Island, whiab lies about a mile ana a half up the Dauuhe, Is us pretty a spot as you could wish to fee, laid out much after tha manner of a nobleman's park In England, beauti rully wooded and rich in verdant turf and primresa banks. The Archduke seems to mingle his pleasure with business, much after the fashion or John Oil pin's wife, for he not only admits the public to the island (on payment) but he has erected a bath house or kur?aal. two large and excellent res taurants and a huge orchestra, in which dally plays the best military band in Pesth. With these at tractions it is not to be wandered at that the Mar garet Island 1b the favorite reaort or the Pesth cltl? zens and that the Archducal revenues are propor tionately benefited. On this special occasion, however, the general public was not admitted to the grounds, and the Prince's party and the guests specially invited to meet ttiem had the island to themselves. At about five In tbe afternoon tha whole party embarked on a steamer which had been chartered for them, and proceeded up the river to a spot where a regatta, conducted by the Pesth Rowing Club, was only awaiting their arrival to begin. The sccne was pretty aud animated; in the background loomed the huge fortress-crowned Blocksberg, with the white-faced houses of Ofem swarming up its sides and lower spurs; on the left lay the green shady banks of Margaret; on the right timber yards aud factories, whose enilnarjr occupants seemed to have struck work and were lining the shore. Several steamers, densely cram med, were hove to In the immediate neighborhood or the course, and on the smartest or them a military band struck up "Ood Save tbe Queen" as the Prince's boat took up her position. The rowinfc was in no way remarkable, save In one race for "ordinary boats or the country"?clumsy, heavy craft, stem and stern both out or the water, pulled by lour stalwart oarsmen and steered by a cox swain who stands up in the stern sheets with a weapon like a long-handled broad spade or shovel, with which he digs into the water at every stroke ol the oars, and spurns it away behind bim with immense vigor. Tckpdat, May 13,1873. This has been a busy day. Prince Arthur was up very early, aud, accompanied by bin equerry, Lieu tenant Plckard, went over the barracks, the arsenal and the military depot, or all the Queen's sons Prince Arthur la the steadiest and the most practical. Since he joined the army be baa made the study of his profession the main business of his life. At the Autumn manoeuvres of 1871 and 1872 the Prince took a subordinate but a laborious position, and acquitted himself well, and he has given one or two lectures on special military mat ters, which proved that he had devoted much study to the topic discussed. In the morning the Priuce of Waies visited tbe Esterhazy collection ol pictures and the Museum, returning to luncheon at the Casino, whence he was fetched by Count Paul Esterhazy, aud, mounting a break, went spinning along a straight, dusty road to Rako's race course as fast as the lour blooded horses, admirably "tooled" by the Count, ooutd carry him. Tbe Held of Kakos, once the place where tbe Diet, the great national assembly or tbe Magyar, was held, la now used as a race course by the nobles of Pesth, who are remarkably "horsey" in their tastes, many ol them keeping large studs or thoroughbreds, with trainers and jockevs Imported from England. Tbe course is about tour tnlies from tne city (and every window was tilled and each side of the road was lined with people gazing with delight at the never-ceasing stream or vehicles wiiicb for two hours poured out or Pesth), circular and well-kept, with a long, handsome Btand. divided Into state Srivate boxes, Ac., and with excellent acrommoda ou for saddling, weighing. Ac. As 1 took my place in front or the standi bethought me of the last time I was on a race course. It was at Jerome Park, about the middle of last September, and the sceue was before my memory?the splendid hot day, the immeuBe excitement of the crowd?It was the first occasion of Harry iiassutt's defeat by Monarchist?the hideous, stolid Sioux Indiaus on the first row ol the galleries: Mr. Belmont, cairn and impressive, on the stewards' stand, and John Morrtssey stemming the human torrent like a swimmer and parting it to right and left with euch movement or Iiib brawny shoulders. Now the wea ther Is cold and the sky overcast: but there Is still a good assemblage. The centre or the gallery is re served h>T the Archduke's party, and there Is a bevy ol beauties assembled, the inost striking oi whom, perhaps, are tbe Princess Esterhazy, in mauve silk, and a renowned London belle, tha Countess of Dudley, whose husband. Karl Dudley, naB a reputation, or rather a notoriety, for bis wealth and Ills ccccntrlrlty. Lady Dudley, who is a sister of I.ady Mordaunt, whoso domestic affairs formed the cause of judicial inquiry two years since, is dressed in a tight-fitting green velvet jackct and long black Bklrt. Ail the ladles are In gala toilets^ which look somewhat out of place this cold day and rorm strong contrast to the overcoats and waterproo:s in which most or tbe gentlemen ore wrapped. After a little time, however, the aun bursts forth, and matters assume a more genial hue. There were five races, of which the last was a steeplechase, over a very lair hunting country, the jumps being of course "made," and not natural, out stiff enough tor any ordinary purpose. All the racing was good. Iu more than one Instance the leading horse was challenged at the distance and beaten on the post by one whose jockey had made a waiting race of it, and, keeping his horse lor tbe finish, secured the victory by what is knewn among turfmen as a "Chlfnev rush." A Hungarian jockey, riding a mare belonging to Priuce Esterhazy, aud, with surely questionable taste, named "Mile. 01 raud," was twice thrown by the mare's bncic jumping in tne preiiinluaiy canter, but resolutely remounted and had the satislactlon of winning the race, while the steeplechase was carried off by Briganttne (a mare, if 1 mistake not. engaged in the Oaks of 1871) in excellent stjle. Of the day's performances, however, by far the most in teresting was a race of Hungarian horses, ridden by their present masters, which was Improvised expressly for tbe amusement of the princes. The horses varied in style and breeding. The winner was a long, raking chestnut, but there were several seedy locking screws aud one heavy animal, evidently fresh from agricultural employ ment. The riders were draped In white shirts, over which tbey wore a colored sleeved waistcoat and long, baggy, white pants. They rode without any saddle and with the rudest and crudest kind or bridle. When the flag was dropped as a signal tor starting half of the horses would not get away; several stepped and kicked, others shuttled off sideways, trying to edge out of tbe course. These were whooshed at and beaten by the bystanders amid roars of laughter, and two or three did not start until the foremost horse had nearly com pleted bis career, but still persisted In ranmng to# entire distance, and coiuiug in long after tbq saddling bell for the next race bad been rung.
