1MERICM JOCKEY CLUB. First Day of the Spring Meeting at Jerome Park. A BRILLIANT ASSEMBLAGE. FOUR EXCITING RACES. l^ivshion and Hcaui y in At tendance. ? ? ? Who Were There and What They Wore. The Fordharo Stakes it Won by Mate, the Bel mont Stakec by Springbok, the Three-Quar ters of a Milo Dual) by Snnriae and the Steeple-Chase by Victor. The Spring meeting ?l the Amerkan .loekey ?lnb at Jerome i'ark Is one of those eveuts that can not. fail to agitate society. tiut only 011 the surface, kut to its depths. The ?mk Utile ih consulted foi weeks Beforehand as to the correct toilet for such ?u occasion, anil the tailor, why, he becomes a sort ol an/# pcx, in designing what would best grace the masculine form 111 the Club House or on the Urand Stand. The event or the year looa place yesterday. The weather alwav* exercises a po tent inilueuoe in thw affair, ami for a wonder the respected geutleman who is popularly supposed to take charge of the meteorological department was iu exceedingly good humor. Sow and then he assumed a frowning aspect, but through the cloud iu lus brow he suffered the bright ?uu to blaze forth in ail ins splendor, never before, with the exception, probably, of the day that Kentucky ran against time, were so many people congregated together at Jerome I'ark. The ram that so copiously tilled trie earth the day previous had laid the dust, so thai the drive to the park and back was delightful. At an early hour there were signs of preparation all along 'lie avenue. Stables, usually so quiet and silent, be came suddenly noisy, aud the omnipresent Mary was called upon, sometimes in no gentle tones, to braid her mistress1 hair or to find that particular set of jewelry. Then pretty (suppose we say be witching v) shrugs greeted the passage of a dark cloud across the sun, ana a great many "I thought wis" came from dormer windows. Hours passed on and the shrugs became smiles, anil every dimple that a Tair cheek could show became revealed. Then the cautious John Thomas, resplendent in blue aud Mass buttons, with a huge star in his hat, was on hand, and dimity and silk were soon on their way to that ultiiiui Thulc of femininity, Jerome Park. And what a lovely drive! When rhl of stages, cross town tracks and watering carts, the pilgrim to the Mecca of horseflesh finds himself In the Hark. , We whiz by the bust 01 Humboldt with an apology brief, but emphatic, to some top wagon whose wheels we have grazed ; we bW an <1 >1 ivrntr to Monsieur Shakspeare when we monnt to the Mall; point. learned importance to the bronze Morse, a short distance above; speak knowing!} of the capacity of the reservoir still lurtber ahead; give a few reminiscences about the Mount St. \ in sent Hospital ; enlarge upon the cow/j d'osif which presents itself bciorc leaving the I'ark; estimate the cost of the Boulevard; tell all about High Bridge and lament over the incompleteness or Macomb's Dam; take breath, perhaps a drink, on the other side of the bridge, and get to Jerome Park very red in the face, very much out of breath, very thirsty and very much inclined to l?et on the wrong horse. WHO WKKK TIIKKJt. The attendance yesterday was iar iu excess ol any previous race. The* world aud his wile might l?c said to bo present. The blutl' behind the grand stand wiis lined with carriages; the stand itself was crowded to such an eitent that 11 late comer had little chance ol obtaining a seal ; the i|iiarter ?tretch presented a scaol white hats and eager devotees at the pools; the club house was filled to overflowing, and the overflow, charming in muny respects, look reiuge on the blulT beneath the piazzas ; the invianum found ample room on 1 he bluff outside the main entrance, and the turfites, technically skeakuig, clustered thick as the bees of Hybea on the track, to the imminent, risk of life and limb. Among those present we observed Mr. V\ 111. H. Duncau, Mr. John H. Pnrdj, Mr. W. K. Travers, Mr. ( raw ford, Judge Mouson, Mr. William Const, al.,e, Mr. 1). D. Withers, Commodore Vauderbilt, Mr. C. Wheat ley, Mr. W. 11. Vauderbilt, Mr. Ccorgc Davids, Mr. Jaiues W. Miller aud ladles, Mr. Charles W. Bath gate, Mr. J. A. Bayard, Mr. and Mrs. Ackennan, Mrs. J. S. Mott, Recorder Hackett, Mr. Fernando Wood, Mr. Klislia Brooks, Mr. Hosea II. Perkins, Mr. and Mrs. BresJy, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Moss and family, Mr. Motley, Mr. i'ashen. Mr. Nolau, Judge Davis. Mr. W. II. Webster. Mr. 1* R. Kit/.ger ald, Mr. unswold, Mr. Thomas Bennett, Mr. Doswull, Mr. Garland, Mr. ano Mrs. iieorge Miller, Mr. John Hunter, Mr. Livingston, Mr. Lorillard, Mr. latw rcnce Jerome, Mr. Morris, Mr. Purdj, Mr. Sanford, Mr. Travers, Mr. Ackeiman, Mr. Withers, colonel McDanicI, i.cneral Baxter aud Mr. A. J. Itaymond. The dresses of the ladles were exceedingly beauti ful, and so varied 111 character that we can only Mention a few ol tue most striking. WUA1 TUKV WOKE. One worn by a striking tilonde was a handsome toilet ol ashes-of-ro^es poult do soie, with ilie trim mings entirely ol the material. The skirt, a dernl iraln was ornamented with a deep flounce. The polonaise, the "Blauea,*' was especially stylish In effect and very becoming. Valenciennes lace frills the neck and wrists, Peacock green necktie. Another toilet of black Mik grenadlue with large black satin spots attracted attention. 'I he entire trimming was of tti< material ; with tuc exception tif the sash s< the side, which was of black silk, and the ribbon touwn on lit** hIcpvi^. I he akirt, a (Jemi train, was trimmed ou the back wltli four deep jrathcred (lounces, each iieaded by a puff, sur mounted by a smuding ruille. The front was bor dered with a narrow flounce, above which were melon puffs, extending to the belt. On the Jeft side the sash hid the jolniug of the front and back trimming, and on the right side a wide ruille, turned toward the ba- k, finished the last puff. There was ?o overs kirt, and the suit was completed by the "Natalie'' basque, trimmed with pufls and ruffles. This is a style very much worn, loug in iront and nhort behind. The ruffle, wtucii simulated the vest in front, was graduated in width, and is very wide st the neck. Krilisot "Standard ' piaitlug at the neck and wrists. ? , It would be difficult to recall another occasion in this city in w hich the (ioddess 01 Fashion received more homage than yestertiav. The toilet* were bewildering in variety, and to ?lve a detailed account of them would be harder han Homer's account, of the strange looking crait whicu the tireeks brodght to destroy Ilium, some 01 the ladies were so resplendent in jewelry that one was inclined to forget their costumes or the crows' feci which years bring on, And 01 hers, of niriisli years, made the plain Swiss overdresses like regal robes by their heanty. In such a tan talizing state of t'tilngs what can ihe masculine chronicler say but that they were all lovely, posi tively lovely ? AT THE STAM> there were the usual features which tend to make a horse race the best opportunity for a study of human character. At one end of tne huge build ing were heard the sounds, "Do I J|,?" vane* upon ortolan?" "iOe Snrsc going ?o advauue, baby thrown in, 1 ??l.ochlel. l-ocblei, to-day." "MeDaniei's three ye?r old. ' And at the other the inewwant clicking of the sneer looking machines that control ?tne 7'rcnck pools. Between tneae races mum were sandwlcbcd. the loud huazas or tne curses loud aud deep of the winners ana loaera. Tho ladies have in later years takes a moat, po'tteular interest in these races; but, un fortunate# for their chances In betting, they allow impniM ?v get the better of judgment. U does not make the slightest particle of difference what the calibre of a horse Is, if a lady does not like his ap pearance she won't bet onlilm; out a nice, well nppearing representative of the equine race, with A pretty little Joakey. draws forth at once reckleas wagers of gloves and lans. 001 no noun. When the steeple cluae was over, and to anxious urn Bines after the well being ol' the poor jockey who eauie to grid at the ditch opposite the Orand stand the answer was returned. "All right," the 'JO. MO people poured forth from the I'ark through *11 On* numerous .irteries which silent nxhers ami blatant pokfemen provide. The nuu sunk lower 10 'lie Western horizon. I Islets of cloud floated tn the deep azure of the sky, h mist of dust veiled flying wheels ami champing eoursers, and a refreshing breeze cheered those who sweltered on the Grand stand. Kvervthing on wheels, from the ancient tilbury to the modem loo-pouud wagon, was tnere, und everything went as merry as a marriage bell. THE RACING. A better series of races than came off yesterday were seidom or never seen on this Continent. The track was very heavy from the ratu of the previous day, aud, as a matter of course, the time was uot as good as would otherwise have been made. The stoutest horses won the tiat races. Four events were on the card, the first being the Kordham Handicap Sweepstakes; the second, the Belmont Stakes; the third, a purse race lor all ages, and | the fourth, a steeple chase. The Kordtiam Handicap Sweepstakes closed with j thirty-eight entries, 01 which number nine came to ; the post. These were M. li. Sanford's brown coll Mate, by Australia, dam Mattie Gross, and the same gentleman's bay horse Preakness, by Lexmg ington, dam bay l.eai; D. J. ("rouse's cUestnut colt Business, by Kevolver, <iam syren; a. Belmont's gray colt Gray Planet, by Planet, dam Kaglees; D. McDaniei A Co.'s bay colt, Bosk Tweed, by Astarold, dam Alabama; Buckiey A- Tully'a bay colt Buckden, by l.ord Clifdeu, dam Couseqnence ; A. C. Monson's bay gelding Vim, by Kentucky, dam Verbena ; W. P. Babcock's bay liiiv It attic o'Neil, by Bay Dick, dam Scythian, and Carro.i A Coar's brown nurse Ortolan, by Donerall, dam Canary Bird. Ortolan was a great favorite over anyoi the others aud lots of money was thrown away 011 him. Never I before in his whole racing career did he run so ' poorly as he did yesterday. Alter going three 1 quarters of a mile he suddenly collapsed, and, Irom , being tlrst, ignominously retired to the rear. Or to ! Ian won this race last year with lour pounds more on his back, m two seconds less tunc than was made on the present occasion, lie was i said to be in good condition and certainly looked as well us at any previous meeting, but there is no doubt that, if Ortolan could talk sufficient reasons could be given for his defeat The race was wou by Mr WinWord's Mate, Preakness second. The winner is a very fine-locking race horse, and he came in at the finish with some thing to spare. So did Preakness. Mate ran lour limes last year, winning twice, tlrst for a nurse at Jerome Park, a mile aud a quarter, beaiing Kism and Margin; the second time at Monmouth Park, he beat Kxtract, John Doe, Mildew aud Boss Tweed, a mile and three-quarters, lie ran second to Jo Daniels for the Jerome Stakes, beating Meteor aud True Slue, and was bcateu in the Dixie Stakes at Baltimore by Hubbard, Jo Daniels and True Blue. He has improved in appearance since then, mid Is a much stouter horse. Business ran a very re spectable race and secured third place. i.ray Planet is not in his element in mud; neither was Buckden. Uattie O'Kcil and Vim had no business in such company. The second race? the Belmont stakes? was a grand atlair, as it always has been since me in auguration of Jerome I'ark. For this stake there > were seventy-live entries; but, when Mr. Wlieatly finished weighing the jockeys for the race he found they numbered but ten, many owners of other entries uot wishing to endanger their horses on so heavy a course. The tluee-year-olds ttiat came to the post were:? D. McDauicl'a chestnut colt Spriugbok, by Australian, dam Hester; A. Belmont's dies tn us colt fount d'Orsav, by Ken tucky, dam Lady Blesslugton ; Hunter A 'i'i avers' black colt, Strachtoo, by Parmesan, dam May Bel! ; Clark At Grimstead's brown colt Waverley, by Australian, dam Cicily Jobson; Hunter A Travers1 chestnut colt Keviier, by Censor, dam Jennie Bose; M. A. latteli's chestnut colt FcUowcralt, by Australian, dam Aerolite; A. Bel mont's imported bay colt, by Breadali><ine, dam Kllermirc; s. D. Bnicc's chestnut colt Gal way, by Concord, dam Mauriina; F. Morris' chestnut colt Lone Branch, by Kcnpse, dam Motile Jackson, and D. 1). Withers' imported chestnut colt Stouehenge, by Blair Athol, nam coimbrn. Belmont and Me Daniel's entries sold lor m arly equal amounts m the |?ools, they having the call over ali the others, and they ilnjshed tlrst and second. Jut-Daniel's Springbok carrying off the prize. Tills is the third year in succession thai M< Daniel and his partners have won the Belmont Siakes. They won it in i?71 with Harry Basse It ; last, year with Jo Daniels, and now with Spiiiigbok, aud on being asked yes terday afternoon when they intended lo quit, one of tin- confederacy said that they had the "tools" to win it twice more, spring bok is a line, slashing lug oolt, of great power aud speed, and lie run through the mud as 11 lie likca it; still there was one. close to him at the Qiusli who, had he been ridden on tiie same side ol the track with Springbok, 'he ream might have been different, Count d'Oi'aav had on ids back Mr. Belmont's late imported jockey, Kvans, Ins ftrsi mount in this conn try , and a capital rider be is; but we think lie made the mistake of keep- , ing oil tlie inside ot me track, where it was heavi est, "while the rider ot Spriugbok took his horse to the ontside, where the track whs much ueiter. Should there be any doubt in the m. nils ol the Irieuds of the two homes as to winch is best we advise them Hi wait patientJv until me two come logo the i in toe Jerome stakes ai the Fall meeting, 'l'hev are bolli capital race horses. Hunter A i rav ers' imported colt Strachlno ran a very excellent | race aud secured third place. Mr. Withers' im- j ported colt Stouehenge showed a great deal of i speed at the begiuntngo! the race, but when lie got into the deep going irom the half mile lo the | t hree-quarter pole he cui it shamefully, and ! from being tlrst fell away to the rear tti a few i seeoinls. Clark A- Gnhstead's bay colt Waverley | ran like a race horse, ami no doubt will prove hun- ; sell a good one beiore the Summer is over. \cs- j terday's track was not a proper one to test a colt's ! I racing powers, a*- the (Incst colts ever bred havo I acted meanly in a stlckv, holding track. I:, is no '?

'I he lot, comprised Mr. W. c. | Conner's chestnut Ally sunrise, i?y llauei, dam Ultima, :t years old, H4 lbs. ; i. \\.

Son's ! bay geldlug Manitoba, by Leamington, dam Belie, ] 4 years old, 98 ibs. : J. F.

Snn ford's team, | comprising brown lior>te Binguinin, by Asteroid, i nam Bay Leaf, a years olu, iw lbs., ami bay itelaing Mildew, by Lexington. dam Mild ted, 4 years { old. SI8 lbs. The last named made ii dead heat with Sunbeam, bin having what the judges termed I "made a cross," they gave the race lo sunrise, ami I disqualified both ol Mr. Sanford's horses, iiltigamin | being at the Onish as good as any of them and 1 away tin the oilier side ol t lie trick. Fadladeen j was given second place and there was no third place assigned to any of the others. Sunrise Is quite a pretty little racing nil v, with a great deal ! of speed, but whether she will lie able t,<> pack up weight is a question that will be solved if she | appears In the ladies' Stakes, to be run next Wednesday. Willi the exception of the four horses ' above named t lie others engaged tn the race didn't amount to much. The lonrth and last race of the day was a steeple chase, lor a purse, which closed with four entries, three of which came to the post. These were Mr. i Waldeu's bay horse Victor, by Cncle Vic, dam bv I Scythian, 4 years old, carrying Ms lbs. ; D. J. Bannatyue's brown gelding Dufft, by Hunter's j Lexington, dam Olio, aged, lfir; ibs., an<t J. K. Coffin's bay horse I.ochlei, hy Bonnie Scotland, dam | Bonnet, ft years old, Ift4 Ibs. Loclnei was the ; favorite over ttie field at ouds. He, however, fell at the wafer jump and was beaten. Duffy, the ' next in favor, refused the stone wall at the top of the lull in the picnic grounds, and fell so far behind ttiat Victor beat, him home and won tne race. In one pool Victor sold lor $w, while l^oclilel and Duffy brought together $700. The following arc tne details of the running aa it I came off:? The First Race.

The alarming announcement tiiat the female ce lebrity Mrs. Victoria Woedhuil was at the border of thai pla e "irom w hose bourn no traveller returns," scattered broadcast .yesterday by certain deluded, individuals, was premature. The heroine of u hun dred moral or immoral battles is not jet, ut Wia?t not tor a little while, to lay aside her dented armor, and it is probable she may again return to the fray of which she was the leading spirit before the j clouds ol rout and misfortune darkened over i her house. Linked with the rumor j ol her deplorable condition of physical I extremity was (he dubious suspicion cointiiunl | catcd i>.y tin hiina surmis of human nature to the i eon tiding mortals, who do not give place lo Mich i uriwortbv estimates of their race, that this sad story was but a cunning and clever devi?*> oi two ! persecuted ami neglected women to win the public j sympathy, which had receded from incut In ibe darkening hours of their affliction.

And. while . the simple-minded Ncwcoiue might smile at the : '?as?! insinuation Implied, It gained swill credence among the cold-lies rted ceusors of the social rot tenness of the age. As reported by her attending physiclaus and by her devoted sister, Miss Tctiuie C.

The V atican is to most people in Home a sealed mystery. A stranger may thunder at Lhe doors for , a week and not get admittance. At every turn and step the intruder would be met by the stalwart, .Swi?s Cuard, whose fidelity* In the service of the Holy Father leads them to suspiciously prevent any person from approaching the audience rooms of the palace without clerical guidance. These curi ously costnmcd sentinels of tho Vatican are, bow* ever, in good odor with the Holy Father. He knows that they are ax true as steel, and would give their lives in his defence if ever the need came. Curiously costumed they are. At first sight; their black and yellow dress appears more fitted lor a company of clowns than or guards; by andi by, however, you become aware of the fact thaC this glaring of color no longer aunoys you; Indeed, when ouce the inner courts of the palace ardl reached, ant! you enter the gilded, magnificent re* ccptlon rooms of the Holy Father, you come to that conclusion that the costume does Indeed harmo nize with.

Just before the audience room of the Pope a sentinel was sta tioned, armed with a halberd, and the way ha paced up and down hiapost and the rapidity of hia evolutions made me compare his movements to the impatient pacing of a lion wit hin the bounda of his cage.
