The Yacht IIace yesterday, which proved to be no race nt all, is another illustration of the impracticability of this month for the racing season. The regatta is to take place to-day, unless we hare a repetition of the old Story?"no wind." June and the early Sum mer arc notoriously times when there is not sufficient wind for good raees, and, in the end, eipericnoe must either tea 'h the neces sity of choosing a later season for the races or make all ol us expect annual repetitions of tho failure ol .vaiUud**. Sweden and Vorwajr?The Owoaatloa of Kiag Ohm II?The BtUtlMi Between gesndlnavU and the United States. We print this morning a fall account of the coronation of the new King of Sweden. Our special despatches at the time anticipated the I general details of the event In this, however, we have ono of the double functions of the modern journalist Wo had the newH, and now we liavu the narrative. We had the lAct now the essay. Wo know that the King had been crowned?that all had passed off happily. That was the office of the telegraph. But the panorama opens before us. We have the color and life of the scone, the pomp and pa geantry, Sweden's capital doing honor to her King, the long line of noble and decorated gentlemen, tho foreign ambassadors in their splendor, tLo ever-falling rain, the solemn rites ol tho coronation, the anointing, the investiture with mantle, orb and crown, the act of loyalty and homage, and the procession homo while the bells rung their merry peals and groups of studont lads sung national hymns at tho palace gates. This is the work of the correspondent, or, as we may say, of the essayist The cable has destroyed the special correspondent and left us only tho telegrapher and the essayist A coronation, like a christening or a wed ding, will always have its interest no matter how practical or republican we are. It is a ceremony, and we are children so far as we find all ceremonies pleasing. There have been famous kings who would not trouble themselves to accept the sacred oil Frederick the Great had no time to be anointed, and he was a considerable king. But the act of coro nation seems to us to be a proper act so long as the trade of royalty is followed among nations. If a monarch reigns by divine right and sits on the throne as a definite expression of God's grace, he cannot be too solemnly consecrated by the priests of the Church. Wo can under stand how a prince like Frederick, with novel views about the sacred oil and the laying on of hands, would despise any priestly ceremony. But Frederick was sure of his throne. He did not belong to any doubtful or contested line. He did not represent a revolution, like the house of Victoria, or the advancement of mere soldiers of fortune like Bonaparte and Bernadotte. Napoleon was childishly anxious for the Pope to crown him, because to a Bonaparte a Papal coronation was everything. We know that when Oscar ascended the throne the thrifty members of his Diet refused to pay any money for coronation purposes. But the King pressed his point He was a Berna dotte. A hundred years ago his ancestors were living humble lives in Pau, and their minds were on more practical things crowns. And we can well conceive how a Ber nadotte would be glad to have his royal mantle blessed to the utmost capacity of the Church. If the nation is happy which has no annals, then modern Sweden has cause for congratu lation. Whatever we may think of the Berna dotte line of kings, as antiquities and types of divine right, they have kept the peace and cultivated pleasant relations with the world The first of the race had more of war falls to ordinary commanders; for he was a Marshal of Napoleon. He came to the throne resolved to have peace, and, during his long reign, never swerved from the purpose. This has been the rule of his house, with the ex ception of the last King, his fantastic and high-mettled grandson. As our correspondent shows in his narrative, Charles XIV. was under the influence of an "idea" or a "mission," as extreme and controlling as the determination of Charles XII. that he would conquer Russia, or the religious enthusiasm of the Russian Alexander, that he would unite the modern dynasties in a mystical holy alliance. Charles, in his poetic, fiery French way, hoped to unite the Scandi navian races under one crown. Denmark, Sweden and Norway would become one nation. Russia would be foroed to return Finland The two million Swedes who now obey the Czar would come back to their natural alle giance. Danish Schleswig would be restored to Denmark according to the Treaty of Prague, and perhaps Pomerania would oome opfa to its old flag. Scandinavian councils would be heard in Europe, and the glory of Gugtavus Adolphus would fall upon the grandson of Bernadotte. But in its nature this could never be. The King strained every nerve to make an army. All he did was to become a suzerain of the French Emperor, and he was so indiscreet during the late war as to menace his crown with the anger of Prussia. The honest Swedes had no such fancies. They saw?what the world sees?that the happiest countries in Europe are the small countries; that Holland and Portugal, and Belgium and Switzerland, move on in peace and prosperity, while the giant kaiser? are butchering one another's subjects. They were content to be even as Holland and Belgium?to be happy and industrious and peaceful. The King's hopes faded away, and he took to poetry and the fine arts and intemperance, and died a young man?of disappointment we think, as much as anything else, at the failure of his people to appreciate the splendor of his mission. Sweden and Norway have had a splendid, but more recently an honest and safe career. No nations in Eiirope have a history more ancient and renowned. We of the English speaking blood can go back to the time when our ancestors were savage kernes and gallow glasses, and we find then that the Scandina vians were masters of the seas; that the Dane had conquered our English shores, and that no legends were more interesting than those which told of the valor of the men who from Norway "over the foam." Our early I literature is stamped with the deeds of the Scandinavian warriors, and we remember that it was for victory over the Norwegian lord that Macbeth was made Thane of Cawdor ; but all attempts to regain this splendor have been disastrous. Charles XIL, in his moteoric career, did Sweden infinite harm in his extrava gant designs, and if the policy of Gustavus IV., the last prince of a worthy line, had con tinued, Sweden would be to-day as Poland or Ireland. What its history lacks, therefore, in that fashion of splendor which men see in Roabach and Leuthen and Austerlitz, in Blenheim aud Waterloo and Sedan, it has now in a more modest and enduring way. Its mines have been worked, its iron has become a staple commodity. It calls the world to come to it for lumber. It tells England that when the coal supply fails she may come with wwurancv to her exhuuutlto* dv powj#. roads have been built There is as much gen oral and widespread content in Sweden, not withstanding the long Winters and the almost Arctic temperature of so moch of its climate, 48 'n any country of the world. Beggary is unknown, and so thoroughly have the people been oducated that ninety-seven per cent of the children attend school. We confess these annals have a beauty to as more enduring than any glory that nations may have secured from their Napoleons and Wellingtons and Fredericks the Great It is more glorious for a nation to have ninety [ seven per cent of children at sohool and to mine iron thai the world must necessarily buy than it is to have Jena or Sadowa written on the torn banners of its soldiery. So far, then, as this new King Oscar continues to realize the traditions of his house, so Car as he aban dons the foolish dreams of !>?? brother, and follows the teachings of the shrewd old soldier who founded his line, so far will it be well for his peace of mind and well for his people. We have not yet attained that point of enlightenment when we shall build monuments tor the heroes of peace. Bat it mast oome in time. Kings mast learn sooner or later that there is no worse use to which their subjects can be put than to lead them oat to murder. It is a good sign that we have no holy alliance against republican France or Spain. In our grand fathers' times an English army would be marching through Flanders, or a French column, under the Due d'Angoul&me, would be crossing the pass at Fontarabia or Ronces valles to suppress the "spirit of revolution." The spirit that prompted these anti-republican invasions is dead ; but the spirit of revolution still lives. In Spain it has given us a repub- I lie with a stainless banner?in Sweden it has given us kings who teach the children to read. To us in Amcrica Sweden and Norway must I always possess an unusual interest But few of our readers are, perhaps, aware of the large and constant flow of emigration from the dominions of King Oscar to the United States. In 1869 as many as 00,000 Scandina vian souls came to America. There has been no year since then in which the number has not exceeded 30,000. And yet the popula tion of the whole kingdom is not much larger than our Middle States alone. And what is better we receive no emigrants who are more desirable than the Swedes and Norwegians. I They have every quality we crave in I the men and women who are to be the parents of future American gener ations?temperance, economy, industry, a desire for an independent, agricultural life. They are welcome, as their bAithers will be | welcome, whenever they choose to come. I Their presence in our citizenship gives us a deeper interest in any event that concerns the mother nation, and justifies us in the expres sion of our warmest wishes for the prosperity of tho new King and his halidom, and of a hope, to use the words of the venerable arch bishop in pouring the consecrating oil upon his head, that he may so "govern country and kingdoms that his reign will redound to the praise and honor of God, strengthen right and justice, and do good to the land and its people." j Hot Weather and the Health 61 the City. | Summer is fairly upon us. Trees whioh a fortnight ago were bare are now in full leaf, and ladies who wore furs are now clad in grenadines. It would not be amiss if our almanacs should tell us to " look out for seeds of various diseases about these days." Fierce sunshine, with such seasonable winds as the fanners welcome to bring on their corn, will in a very short time distil poisonous vapors from the standing pools of filthy water and heaps of fermenting refuse too much abounding in our streets. It would be unjust to the Street Cleaning and Health Departments to assert that our streets are in an exceptionally filthy and dan gerous condition, but candor compels the admission that especially in the narrow, crowded streets of the lower wards, there is urgent need for the broom and the dirt cart A few days of hot weather such as has now set in will bring to the public nose unpleasant evidence of official neglect, unless with this advent of Summer we have a corresponding increase of activity in the removal of the putrefying deposits. Earnest work begun at once in cleansing and purifying the city may prevent many deaths and maintain through the Summer a fair state of health. Our new officials should be wide awake to I these facts and not let the grass grow under their feet. Now is the time when the city needs earnest work. Let the new brooms be put in vigorous motion. Let the filth be promptly removed, and while the Summer lasts let us see what virtue there is in frequent and thorough street washing. If cleanliness kept New Orleans free from disease New York should not neglect a duty so obvious and so easily performed. Newfoundland and the Cable Monopo llate. j The letter from "A Newfoundlander," which appeared in the Hziut.n of yesterday, was sensible ?-nd to the point. The people of Newfoundland take a wiser view of this matter than we expected. Yet self-interest and self defence teach them to resist the cable mono poly, and we need not be surprised to find them on the right side. In addition to the charter, which was liberal in the extreme, securing the exclusive right of landing cables on the island, the Atlantic Cable Com pany obtained a grant of one hundred square miles of unoccupied land, to be selected any- ' where throughout the island, in blocks of not less than three miles and without any time being specified for the selection. This grant has already pat the company in possession of the valuable lead mine at La Manche, and is likely to prove to them a source of immense wealth. In return for all these favors the Newfoundland people have certainly not re ceived much. The government of Newfound land has the remedy in its own hands. Sec tion fifteen of the charter gives it the right of buying up the entire plant of the company at the end of the first twenty years, and that without paying for good will or the valuation of profits. The charter is dated April 15, 1854, so that by April 15, 1874, the valuation (An be made and the government by paying down the money, can make itself owner. We advise the government of Newfoundland to exercise its rights, to push its pre-emption claim and so to bring those cruel monopolists to ttairfMOMp, ualejftthe Wrap) offered bj thg oow* pany are acoepted. Hie government of New foundland is willing to Abandon its pre-emp tion right if the Atlantic Cable Company will give up its monopoly. The offer as made by the government of Newfoundland w fair, and it will be well if the Cable Company learns wisdom in time. Next year we ooght to have two additional cables and the rates reduced at least one-sixth. Captain Tjr?on and tUe Polarla. Captain Tyson and his party from the Polaris arrived at the Washington Nary Yard yosterday, in the steamer Frolic, detailed from this port to St. Johns, N. F., to take them down. The object of the Secretary of the Navy is a thorough examination of these Arctic woyagmrs in reference to the steamer Polaris, her adventures toward the North Pole, the death of Captain Hall, and the causes of the apparent desertion by the ship of Captain Tyson and his party on the ice. A Board, which seems to have been informally constituted, consisting of the Secretary, General Myer, Commodore Beynolds and Professor Baird, immediately began an ex amination of Captain Tyson, the re sult of which has not been made pnblio.

Doubtless the investigation will result in some very interesting disclosures; but it is probable that nothing material will be elicited by it whioh has not already been made known through the columns of the Herald. This investigation, however, is eminently proper, as an official inquiry into the "strange, eventful history" of the Polaris, and of the marvellous drifting cruise of Captain Tyson and his party fifteen hundred miles on an ioe floe, through all the horrors of the storms and cold and darkness of an Arctic Winter. Meantime, we hope that the project of a search for the Polaris has not been utterly abandoned by Secretary Robeson. Cigars at Central Park Garden* So complicated are the considerations which arise when the question of cigars or no cigars is presented in relation to the concerts at Central Park Garden that the conscientious man hesi tates when asked for his opinion. Whiohever way he decides wrath and desolation await him. To give the preference to the ladies and to pronounce the banishment of nicotine re quires a moral heroism which we confess we do not possess. Nor are we quite bold enough to espouse the other remedy, and to suggest that ladies who dislike tobacco are at liberty to remain in the garden portion of the estab lishment. The case is a very sad one, and we own frankly that we do not know precisely what to say. Sinco more gentlemen than ladies attend these concerts the greatest happiness of the greatest number would seem to require that smoking should be permitted ad libitum, and that those of the fair sex who did not like it should have the alternative of staying away. But then the ladies might declare, and prob ably would, that if smoking were prohibited they would come all the more?an advantage whioh gallantry forbids our saying is question able. The question then seems to narrow itself down to this:?Which is preferable, no nmnlring or no women? Now we dare say many an admirer of woman may justly be suspected of feeling that, much as he loves the sex, he loves the cigar more. The garden concert band is good and the music well chosen ; but think what it would be to pass a whole evening at a beer table, beneath the arabesque convolutions of Mr. Thomas' baton, with not so much as a whiff or a smoke wreath ! For our own part we had almost said it was the smoke that constituted a portion of the charm of the garden concert It casts a gentle, romantic haze over the ensemble, and the faces of our friends seen through it look like those idealized photographic heads sur rounded with clouds. Banish smoke and you banish beer; banish beer and you banish the delights of drink in general, and then you are at once reduced to prim propriety, bearing no more relation to a genuine garden concert a mediaeval heaven does to a Moham medan paradise?and of the two wo think the Mohammedan paradise would be considered by the modern easy-liver much the jollier place for a time, to say nothing of eternity. But we have fairly reasoned ourselves, quito against our expectations, in favor of the smokers. Besides, since there is nothing more ennobling than the overcoming of prejudices, i let that selfish sex which would deprive a meek and unoffending male of his tobacco in dulge in an occasional cigarette itself; gracing the practico with all those flirtations and fas cinations it knows so well how to employ, and it would soon acknowledge that the essence of garden concert enjoyment consists in freedom to smoke, drink and follow the musical pro gramme simultaneously. Who does not enjoy "The Wanderer" all the better forapullat the weed and the weiss beer? We have no wish to become misogamists, and even if we had, should never think of saying, with Ten nyson:? Woman is the lesser man, and all lier passions, matched with his'n, Are the cause of all tlic troubles wtilch have ever yet arisen. Give the male visitors of the garden concert i their cigars and they will go on contentedly \ applauding the music of Wagner, as it swells ; and ?""lr? in strains quaint as an Etruscan vase, dreamy as the slumber god and de lectable as a "social topic" from the Saturday Review. __ A Bonaxabtist Excitement m France.? The movements of the chief representatives of the ex-Bonapartist dynasty of France are attracting attention and producing a degree of excitement in the French Republic. It was alleged yesterday that Eugenie was in Paris, and that she had been there during some days. A London journal yesterday published an appeal from her ex-Majesty to j the people of France in behalf of her son, tho | Prince Im]>erial. Prince Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte arrived in Paris yesterday. &is presence causes much agitation in the lobbies of the National Assembly, at Versailles. The ex-Empress is a very able and persistent diplo matist ; she is even a politician of the more refined or higher school of the class. Prince Jerome Napoleon is very astute ; if be is only loyal in his sentiments towards the widow and her son it may be that President MacMahon will be forced to look sharply after the matter of the visits. The Vermowt Editors, in a social reunion, enjoyed themselves greaily yesterday in an excursion from Lake Champlain to Laks QeWgo?a goo4 example of l/rotUwfrood for the fraternity in every State and Territory of the Union. TM AMcaa Slave Trade ?? ChtMHi ? cable telegram informs us thai the London IIme* advocate* the immigration of Chinese to tha east coast of Africa as a means of securing the abolition of the slave trade. This measure has been disonssed for many years, and has even attracted tha serions attention of the Viceroy of Bgypt. His Highness, in building the Soudan Railway, will need a class of labor which he can hardly find in his own dominions; and if he profits by our own experience in constructing tha Pacific Bail way, when 75,000 Ohineae were employed with the happiest results, he may acquire a valuable and permanent population of thrifty pro ducers. Notwithstanding the new political problems which are likely to grow out of the inpouring of the Chinese to our Pacific coast, they have proved docile, law-abiding colonists. If they can do so well in America there is no reason why they should not do equally well in Bgypt and along the eastern ooast of Africa, thus supplying from the gnat Chinese reservoir of labor, containing 400,000,000 of souls, industrious hands wherewith to develop new and ambitious powers. It is doubtful, however, if the experiment of colonizing the eastern coast of Africa with Chinese would succeed. They are by no means resolute and hardy settlers, capable of forwarding that aggressive civilisation neces sary in Africa. They would oome in contact with bold and unscrupulous slave traders and Moslems, and the result might be a war of races, and the massacres of Djeddah and Da mascus might be repeated. We are of the opinion that if the Chinese should go to Africa at all they should enter by Egypt and ad vance to the interior with the railway and steamboat, protected by the strong arm of the government. Whatever may be the result of this agitation, it is an encouraging sign to be hold a serious movement to utilize the redun dant peoples who crowd the lands of Eastern Asia. Tmt President and Hib Family, it is ex pected, will resume this day the occupation of their "cottage by the sea" at Long Branch for the Summer. The usual flocks of hungry politicians will soon, therefore, be heading for that cottage. Pbesidsnt MacMahon's first reception as exeoutive administrator of the government of France was held yesterday. It was a very brilliant affair, our cable report of the attend ance of distinguised personages recalling to some extent the remembrance of the scenes which were witnessed in Paris on similar occasions during the days of the Empire.

TEE CHICAGO MUSICAL JUBILEE Chicago, ill.. June % 1878. The first of the Grand Jubilee Concerts was given in Hie immense depot of the Chicago, Rook Island and Pacific and the Michigan Southern Railroads this afternoon to the largest audience ever assembled ln| Chicago, not less than twenty thousand iwople being present. The accommo dations for the vast crowd consisted merely of rough wooden benches, all on a level, but the musi cal part of the programme was excellent.
