AMERICAN JOCKEY CLUB. Second Day of the Spring Meeting at Jerome Park. THE LADIES' STAKES. How the Beauties of the Boudoir Looked and the Beauties of the Stable Ran. FOUR CAPITAL RACES. Xaty Pease Wins the Ladies' Stakes, Preakness the Jockey Club Handicap Sweepstakes, Brennns the Sell ing Eace and Fadladeen the Mile Heats. The second day of the Spring meeting at Jerome Park was a success as to racing and weather, and very fair as to attendance. In a subdued manner, It Is the Lady's Day or the American tnrf, as the Oaks is the hippie speciaclc In England sacred to the fairer half of humanity. Had It is to say that New York yesterday did not pour as high a wave of beauty over the graud stand as the ocean of London rolls, with theen of silk und loam of tulle over the broud downs of Epsom, when the three-year-old Alios contcud over the world-famous race course. But there were choice wavelets of loveliness at Jerome Park for all that, and, us may be noted be low, sweet things in bonnets and hats and irre sistiblo webs of raiment made bright eyes, pouting lips, fairy lorms and dainty hands look all the more bewitching. Ah! to catalogue these costumes, to describe tlicm with the most harrowing techni cality, gives to the simple student of tho beautiful a very slim and delusive iuca of what the ensemble is when there is a palpitating being beneath the purple and tine linen I Towards three o'clock TIIK DULL, LEADEN CLOUDS commenced to droop, and when the heavy drops of rain checkered the pavements with their ominous rings the wiseacres who remained at home must have chuckled with sell-satl >faction. But soon old fcol, who has so often proved a trump, soared aloit like the great American bird, and the style In which the process of evaporation was carried on failed not to elate the patrons of the turf, while the loll ago in the Park scorned to greet every comer witli tears of joy. Rarely, If ever, has that charming demesne looked to such advantage, and when the dust was nicely laid and the feeling of disappointment was succeedcd by that oi gratitude anH mirth, the drive became all that fancy ever painted it. Upon the head of the statue of the venerable and respected Professor Morse was A CTTBRRFPL LITTLE SPARROW Jolng the best It could to make things merry, and nobody passed the bird without a kindly feeling. A gentle breeze tanned the brow of many a wayfarer, who, with ill-concealed regret, restrained his speed in presence of the pray -coated officers that launter up and down the road In quest of "eases,'' which they rarely find. Seven miles an hour was the regulation, but it might have been seventeen lor all that, with such tirllliant fun ahead. And all banas went forth lively to the grounds, just as they will do to the end of time. "DKIJREKS OF HEAT" WERE AT A DISCOUNT, for a closer day has seldom come around, but It made no diirerence so long as overhead was fair. Scores of handsome equipages, scores of dog and donkey carts were there; scores of topless wagons and cranky sulkies, all rushing to the scene with various kinds of freight, from boiled chickens to melting matrons of the third degree. It was the same joylul, exhilarating panorama that ever marks the approach to the race grounds. Tbere was nothing new and there was nothing old, while the surroundings were all that tradition has made ramous, save and except the indecorous ele ment, which, by the way, is rarely seen on the road in these quarters. Looking to the right, lay when passing old Mount St. Vincent llospltal, the view of historic Yorkville might, perhaps, in a remote degree, recall to mind TUB RUINS OP POSll'ElI on the half-shell, so to speak, for between the mattered sbaatles In the back ground and the crumbling rocks und stones and other worse than senseless things, the sentlmeiua lst would be In clined to dream of days cone by, though a keener glance will disclose to the practical mind a trtving and prosperous spot, if smoke be any criterion of success. Few however, thought of Yorkvlle, en route lor the races, for ks die sun shone brightly all sped along full or glorious anticipation. Kven tho boys on the road, anxious to water and sponge travellers for a trifle, were Id great giee and armed with buckets jocosely contronted drivers with many a saucy jest. With all this the humors of the road were few and far between, lor the patrons of Jerome Fark evidently draw a wide discrimination between the rollicking fuD which characterises the famous sporting grounds abroad and the quiet pleasures ot the race on this side of the Atlantic. From early morning there was a sus picion 01 cloudiness in the sky. that made some very prudent race-bound people lay in A 8T0CI OK UHHRKI.LAS AND OVERCOATS that distracted anil distressed them frequently through the heat ol the day. To be sure thev were occasionally gratified by imagining that it was about to rain, and then their looks of triumphant spleen, succeeded by profuse perspiration as the heavens cleared, were highly amusing. The wise virgins themselves, with their tittle oil cans, would surely have said It was "a uowurlght shame'' 11 the wedding party bad put iu an appearance in the daytime. But the majority were of the pure holt day order, who go out taking all the odds thatold Probabilities migiit choose to put up against the lmpervlou.--ness oi their clothing. The sccne ON THE QtT ARt'F.R STRETCH was about ax usual. The young gallants who came out at a spanking pace behind a pair of fiery chest nuts rubbed shoulders with and bought pools be side the great unsorted who came out by the steam car* from Forty-second street. It Is surely a sight to thank Providence on to see the merchant or hundreds ot thousands a year look as it his profits were mertgaged ten vears ahead when he shares tbe sensation of losing a little bet on his favorite. The man of chronic money-risking habits tukes things easier. It Is a pleasure to sec such a one lose and smile as artlessly as a babe betore it cuts its tlrst tooth. We have ONK ADVANTAGE ON THE AMERICAN over the English turf? namely, that the agony of losing money does not produce such painful demon sirativeness here as on the other side of the ocean. We have uo suicides following the great racing days here. >ot wishing to intiude these painful thoughts upon what should be the description of a bright aud happy scene, the line of comparison Is dropped lorthe same reason tnat the Western en gine driver objected to running over people? "it musses the engine." THE LADIES AND THEIR RACE. By three o'cIock, tbe time or starting for the Ladies' Stakes, tbe Grand Stand was fairly filled and presented an interesting appear ance as the benches gradually disappeared from view. The start was put down punctually for three, and haste was the word with late comers. Out of forty-three fillies entered eight were named as starte'rs. and the girls were out lor their preliminary canters as a rivulet of beauty and expensive millinery came prettily down the rocky incline from the club house on the Muff to take po sition for viewing the ladles' race. While the fair creatures are struggling through the programme to And out the D (lies' names ror their jockeys' colors, and while the more knowing are descanting on the form and gait of the fleet coursers cantering around or pawing the earth, we may glance at the outer envelope or the Goddess Faehion, as she ap peared at the moment. TBI TOII.ETS. The modistes occupy as prominent a position at the Jerome Park races as the proudest member of the club; not personally, certainly, but by their handiwork. It is bard to note more than a few of the most striking toilets amid snch an assemblage of female beauty, but tbe following were observed among the most elegant:? A LA WATTEAtT. Striking, yet not toe pronntuee for the occasion, was a toilet worn by a tall, graceful blonde, who languidly watched the proceedings in the Club Honse piazza, while her attendant cavalier gently swayed her Watteau fan of white silk, exquisitely tainted. Over a demi-traln skirt oi rather dark blue poult de sole, trimmed with narrow flounces, scalloped and edged with fine Valeucienncs lace, was a Watteau redingote of Aigeneu goods, white stripes alternating with light blue ones edged w lib flue film threads. The material was made np so that t tic stripes were perpendlcnlar in stead of <vi lunjinUre. 'Ihe garment. waa exceed int'ly long, and simply hemmed at the bottom. A mue silk belt, fastened iu Hie back by a large buckle of fronted biiver, supported a very broad blue sa?h. which was tied low down on the right side, sustaining the looping, while on the lelt, also fcP5n.'lm,T lrom the was rt handsome sliver chatelaine, the design quite aprrtpos? a dog's head, riding whip, stirruD, Jockey cap and noike shoe, linked together by reins, IIKLl) BY A OAl'NTI.KTKD HAND.

Bonnet of reseda crfcpc, trimmed with pink azaleas. A 1I1U I.I.I ANT BRUNETTE, wun a graceful, commanding figure, wore an ele ?}?? b'aclc "'"t toilet, the skirt a train, entirely without garniture excepting very broad rcvers at lac sides, finished with heavy cording; and the barque very short, ornamented wltn revors to match the skirt, and trimmed with thread lace, toe lovely throat furnished amplo cxcuso jor the corsage being en chale, and the high irais.! Mfdlcis only enlianood its loveliness. The sleeves fitted closely to the bcautuuil> shaped arms, and deep lace frills fell over the hands, fastened on the right shoulder by a hand-ome ornament was a wide Algerien scarf, coral colored and white stripes, which fell across tlie figure both back nnd front, serving tlio purpose of a wrap, and fastened on the leit side of the skirt. The arrange meut was particularly graceful and becoming, coral jewelry, and a high Keubens hat of black chip, i trimmed with black laco and a lull blown cactus ; blossom, completed the toilet. I A STVI.lSIl TOILET, I evidently lntonded for donii-deull, had a skirt of j silver gray poult dc sole, trimmed with a flounce plaited in a novel manner and corded with black silk. Over this wag an exceedingly long poloualse 01 embossed black silk grenudiue, trimmed with vciy llch real Spanish blonde. The looping was sustained by a sash of sliver gray cr<<pe do clime, finished on the ends with Spanish biomlo whlcii was tied around the waist and fell nearly to the bottom of the skirt. Bonnet 01 Belgian s*raw gray "tips WlUl Ulacl' velvet> Spanish blonde and A quiet and recherchC toilet had a perfectly plain deinl-train skirt of a lovely shade ol wood-colored nult de sole, worn under a ??Jessica" polonaise of atlste de solo, heavily embroidered with a floral aetlgn in silks of various shades of wood color. 1 his garment lormed two very deep points in (rout, or, rather, the fronts lormed very deep points at t no sides, being drawn back by the looping, and the back was looped in a poul c'amargo by broad ribbon sashes matching tlie skirt In color. The edge was tilmmed with handsome Yak lace. ??Vic toria" bonnet of split straw, trimmed with two shades of wood color, and large, languid pink roses in foliage. TftF turn. was a mile and Ave furlongs, and a fine start was had from tho inner track, the fillies going awav beautifully beneath a sudden burst ot sunshine and kicking up a cloud of dust behind them that i hid them long belore the sweep round the bluff Tlu??r.r.nclie0' The ladles were in ecstacies. The eight fillies came down the stretch magnificently and almost as much In line as a pefot/m ol cavalrv ?tthe charge. It was a boautiluf sight, the varied colors of the silk-coatud jockeys making It like the oii-rush of knights at a tourney. WKAKINU THEIR I.AU1KS' COL0RB. rim?, ?/ Pas,He(l the stand a chestnut filly, with Jimmy Kowe for a rider, came out to tlie front, and the cry of "Katy Pease!" went up Joyfully as she started to lead Quits and the rest for the re mainder ol the race. Ladles proverbially bet pairs of gloves, and a number of pairs must have been worn out yesterday applauding the pretty winner nnd hor trim-built, rider, with his keen brown eves peering from beneath his jockey's cap. __ tub enolish jock. **VZ, ,nt"cst by uo means subsided with the fair sex when the first race was over. The Jockey Club | Handicap sweepstakes, won by Preakness, who was I mounted bv that true scion 01 English joctey man u.ac.ure, Billy Flay wood, with his fine Judgment aud iron nerve, created a thorough excitement be cause of tlie lact that the race seemed in doubt ud to tlie last half of the second mile. _ A WINNING CARD. The third race was notable for the large field of eleven horses ana the good running, although a i number ol lalse starts were made. The dose was !in??r?iURh "urprlHe al8?- for ?? the horses came I down the homestretch it was observed that an un j suspected horse named Iirenuus, with a rider clad In what looked like a "ten of hearts" jacket was I ahead, and won tho rare, to the delight of those who had bought an ont-or-the-way animal in the pools. It was the greatest streak ol luck that | came to those who bet blindly since Nickajack won j a race against all odds on tlie same course. Then ' e .Am?rican race of ??heats," between I flrift h^iV1C?nrfn?<l aJla<Jei'n. The former won tho j first heat, and those who credulously believed he ' could win iinorher backed him; but Kadladeen was 1 os souring to their hopes iu the next two heats as I Of tMrifti,nal was to the gushing poet of La.la Rookh. Then everybody prepared to go home, and stood not on the order, but went. THE RETURN. n There were more damp handkerchiefs left Jerome i ark last evening than many an unassuming horse would like to carry. The broiling son had left his track, and when the winner of the final race had been announced, It was with a reeling of reller that n?M? ^m?.age broke "P and lelt m pleasant Ittle parties to catch the breeze coming i If i town> There have been hotter days ; along this quarter stretch than yesterday. Many a time has excitement readied a higher' pitch, but the emphatic manner in which some reminded their hearers or the heat and the haste with which ' !hade wag sought could not tail to Induce the 1 Hnt lh? Klmi ,vorr warm weather prevailed. I ?ut the brilliant scene soon closed ainid loud and rrequent calis. (Carriages rolled up to order and dashed away. Clouds of dust enveloped many a ten while here and there some driver more impetuois than his fellow pushed forward with lUely gait. All along the homeward route crowds of spectators watched with eager eye the passing equipages, some or which excited admiration. The Halting places on the way were crowded to excess ??an/.,a.rac? comMent on the day had ampio scope. All iu all, the .second day's meeting of the I Ciub gave unbounded satisfaction. THE RACING. A most excellent track and delightful weather seemed to please both horse and rider yesterday afternoon, as the racing was of a most superior order. Pour events were on the card, comprising the Ladies' Stakes for three-year-old Allies; the i Jockey Club Handicap Sweepstakes, a selling race of a mile and a furlong, and mile beats. The Ladles' Stakes lor three year-old Allies closed with forty-three nominations, of which eight came to the post. These were I). McDanlel A Co.'s chest' nut Oily Katie Pease, by Planet, dam Minnie Mans 1 field ; W. Cottrill's bay filly Sallie Watson, by ' I?aniel Boone, dam Maggie G. ; K. W. Sears' brown filly Annie Mali, by Leamington, d"m Echo; Thomas W. Doswcll's gray filly j Lizzy Lucas, by Australian, dam Eagless; 1 W. CottrUl's chestnut Ally Alice Mitchell, by Planet, dam Volga; James A. Grtnstead's chest nut filly Eclair, by Lightning, dam Brenna; A. Bel mont's chestnut filly Electra, by Kentucky, dam Bernice, and the same gentleman's bay Ally Me dora, by Kentucky, dam Camilla. Cottrill's en ! tries were the favorites, McDanlel's Ally second j choice. The latter won the race, Mr. Cottrill's Sal i He Watson second; Mr. sears' Leamington Ally was third. The winner of this race is a most j ; beautliully finished oily, with great power for one ! j of her Bize. she ran four times as a two-year-old, winning once. Tbis was at Saratoga on the 22d of , Angust. in a free handicap, carrying eo lbs., one ! i mt:e, in which she beat Merodac, Minnie W. and | Pennock's Jack Malone filly, she was beaten at ! Fordham by Springbok and Minnie W. five tnr. 1 longs, and in the Nursery Stakes by Wlldidle, Long Branch and Catesby, and in the Kentucky ! stakes by Silk Stocking, Revller, Catea- I by, Electra and Rtrachlno, Katie Pease has changed wonderfully with the year, and it ts very doubtful whether any of those who beat her last year "have a license" to do so thin. Sallie Watson ran a good race, bnt why she shonld have been the favorite we were at a loss to know. Mr. Cottrlll said she had never run a longer dis lance than mile heats and never carried heavier weights than 87 lbs. Here she had to pile up to? lbs. and rnn a mile and Ave furlongs. There Is no doubt that her race with Tom Bowling at Lexing ton. at the Spring meeting, wnen she made that famous colt run two heats of a mile and repeat race in each had the effect of making her j backers lay out their money so wildly. Great mis i takes are frequently made here on horses that have j won a fast record in the W'est or South. Our people do not reflect on the difference of weight carried { in that section and here. Again, horses are very apt to lose tome of their "loot" by a travel in , I the cars of three or four days, aud It '? sometimes takes a whole season to get ! | them back to tlie spe ed thei left home with. Tlieie I Id no doubt but thai Sallie Watson is a capita) race ' I tiag, aud that there will be many a prize tor her to , wai ana carry back lo ber home at Muuuq i the next snow fails. Annie ITall Is a very fair look ing filiy, and will uo doubt win enough during the year to pay lor training ami oats. Wo will say nothing about, the others until they distinguish themselves by gome well won race. The Jocucy Club Handicap Sweepstakes had six starters out of twenty-six entries. These were Mr. Sanford's hay horse Preaknesa, by Lexington, dam Hay Leaf, h years old; Thomas W. Doswell's bay horse Eolus. by Leamington, dam Kanny Washing ton. 5 years old; D. McDanlcl A Co.'s chestnut colt Hubbard, by Planet, dam Minnie Mansfield, 4 years old; I). J. Rannatyne's chestnut horse stockwood, by Asteroid, dam Alabama, 5 years old; Isaac W. Pcunock's bay colt by Vandal, dam Margravine, 4 years old, and W. R. Rabcock's chest nut mare Ethel Spragne, by Jack Muione, dam Vesper Light, 4 years old. Preakness had the call In the betting, llubbard being the second choice, Eolus third. Preakness won a very easy race in the lastest time evor made on the Jerome Park track. He, however, earned six pounds less than his regular weight. Preakness Is a strange horse and makes strange races. When he is him self and feels like running he is an A No. 1 race horse; but when he la not Preakness and does not fool like running he cau be beaten by second raters. He iB now In high flesh, and as he lias always run best when fat probably it wilt pay his owner to keep him so. He wus cut in the race by some other horse, as was also Eolus, the latter very badly. No one seemed to know who did the mischief, hut whoever It was should bo punished, and a heavy reward should be given for Jhe discov ery of the perpetrator. Some horses wore Injured last Saturday in the same way; and until an cxamplo is inado of the Jockey who ran on Eolus and Preakness this fiendish business will be continued. Eolus ran a good race, and was two lengths behind Preakness at the finish. Hubbard was third, six lengths behind Eolus, the others a lung way oft. The third was a selling race, with the usual al lowances for low value In the norsea. There were eleven starters, comprising John P. ohamhoilaiu's gray gelding Hrenuus, carrying 05 lbs. ; Hunter A Travels' chestuut illly Quits, 80 lbs. ; 1). Buckley's chestnut mare Chickabiddy, 100 lbs. ; Jo. Donahue's chestnut horse Sauford, 10ti lbs. ; H, Shea's chest nut gelding Giuger, 104 lbs. ; Tnos. W. Doswell's bar mare Winesap, I041bs. ; W. R. Rabcock's bay horse Conductor, lufl lbs.; D. McDanlel A Co.'s I my colt Boss Tweed, 103 lbs. ; George Donlson's bay guiding Marcus, 101 lbs.; John Harbeek, Jr. 'a chest nut horse Cadence, 104 lbs., and L. W. Jerome's bay colt, So lbs. Quits and Chickabiddy were the lavoritea; bnt the race was won by lirenuus in very good style. He sold very low in the pools and In the i'aris Mutueis. In the latter nearly one hundred and fifty dollars was paid tor the $5 invested on him. Rrennus was sold after the race to Mr. Bathgate for $50<). The mile heat rico that closed the sports of the day was very exciting. Tt was betweon Thomas W. Doswell's chestnut horse Eadladocn and A. Belmout's gray colt llray Id an ot. They had three heats, and the race was won by Fadladoen. The following are the details of the racing as it progressed Til H FIRST HACK.

They then passed around the hill, and while they were out oi sight the majority of them were whipped and began to tail off. When they appeared on the lower turn Katy Pease was leading about three lengths, and from her gallant manner of running it was evident that she would come home a winner, barring accidents.

Yesterday afternoon, at three o'clock, wickets were pitched at the Hoboken Cricket Ground for a return match between the Staten island and St. George's clubs, the former having been defeated in the match played at Staten Island en Decoration Day. A considerable number of visitors, including ladles, were on the ground, and the weather was all that could be desired by the most enthusiastic cricketer. The St. George's having won the choice for innings, elected to go in, an. I sent a couple of their steady bats in? viz. Jones and smith? the former having considerably distinguished himself by his batting agaii.st the English Kleteii last year. Alter a short time lie scored thirteen principally off Brewster's bowling, oue of his hits being a magnificent drive of six over bowler's head into the marsh outside the cricket ground where it Imbedded itself like a speut cannon ball and was consequently lost. Smith scored thirteen by careful play. Sleigh then followed, and by some very clever play scored twenty-seven. Including several tine leg hits. The adding of the Staten Island Club was good. If not brilliant, but they were unfortnnato in playing without Outerbridge. The bowling or Harvey was somewhat, badiy punished, on account of it being easily ??collared.'' The St. George s ( Inb played two men short, and their eighth wicket fell lor seventy-lour runs. THK STATKN ISLAND. The Staten Island then went ts the wicket after dinner and sent in Filmer and Davis, who made each but short innings, and, lu fact, the only stand made was by Tucker, who scored seven. Jones captured no less than six wickets and gained great upplause lor his bowling and catching. The lidd ing of the St. (ieorge's was excellent. The match is to be continued this aiternoon, when the wt George's will commence their innings at three o'clock. The following are the scores:? ST. OKO RUB'S. ST4TKS ISLAND. b- 'larvey 13 Fllmer, b.

David Roache, of the Nautilus Club, vs. Kben Loice, of the Atalanta Club? Roache the Winner. Yesterday afternoon Mr. David Roache, of the Nautilus Boat Club, and Mr. Eben Loscc, of the At alanta Boat Club, both prominent organizations on the Harlem River, rowed a straightaway shell raco on that stream from the "powder schooner" to High Bridge, a distance of two miles, for a prize of $100. One of these men? Mr. Losee? has long been known among aquatic followers In this section of the country, and was regarded as tho best oarsman of his weight and Inches that ever got into a boat. Ue has held the championship under which he Is classed (of the Hudson) for several years, and nls friends held that the man had yet to be lound who could successfully measure blades with him. The Nautilus boys, how ever, thought tney had In Roache an opponent worthy of Losee's reputation, and some time since members of the two clubs decided that a race should be rowed by them for a prize, as stated; hence the present contest. TUB MKV. For the event both men had undergone a careful preparation, and no doubt they were lit for the engagement. Losee is twenty-nine year9 of age, stands Ove feet three inches and weighed, just be fore getting into his shell, loo pounds. Roache is much younger, barely beyond his ma jority, but is one luch taller and weighed 115 pounds in his working clothes? both "feather weights" indeed. TIIR r.OATS. Roache rowed In a shell 2!) feet long, 9\' inches wide and weighing 29 pounds. Colors, white shirt and blue pants. Losee's boat was 26 feet 6 inches In length, 9K wide, and weighed 24 pounds. Colors, criuidou shirt and white drawers. THE RiCE. Around the new settlement on the narlem; there was much anxiety regarding the contest; but the majority, in fact, nine-tenths, of the oarsmen thought it was "dollars to doughnuts" that Losee Would beat his opponent. Between five and six o'clock was appointed for the men to take their positions, as the tide, being first of the flood, would serve, and long before the hour the river was pretty well covered by boats of all character, from the clumsy Whitehall to the pretty shell, all making their way to the starting point. The not extra large stesmboat Pope Catlin, but a craft well adapted tor the purpose, had been engaged to lollow the rowers, and at the appointed time It appeared off the boat house*, and, taking all on board who desired to go, steamed to her place beside the powder schooner. Meanwhile Mr. Oorge ltoah, judge for Losee, and J. (J. Uabcook, holdng the like posttton for Roache, had agreed upon Mr. (leorge Itrown, of the New York Athletic Club, to act as referee. It did not take the contest ants long to get ready, us, upon the arrival of the catlin, each was found In place, Losee nearest to the schooner. The water was smooth as a mirror and the evening of the most delightful character for such a race. On every hand were friends of the rowers, but thoso attracting the most attention were the Nautilus, four-oared gig. with Jimmy Ten Eyek pulling No. 3; the liramercy's eiglit-oare barge, and tho Columbia and Athletic clubs' shells. The referee, without waste of time, gave the "go" at eh. 59m. 15s., and the men cut vhe water simultaneously and went away on their journey on level terns. Losee was quickest to settle to his work, and, stroking I rapidly, he drove his boat several feet In front, I and Koache rowing "abroad."' the Atalanta man drew his crait clear of the other before an eighth of a mile had been covered. Now the irlends of Losee on the Catlin grew wild with : excitement and offered 100 to 26 on "the little lel | low," which odds were many times taken, much to I the delight 01 the takers, as the sequel will show, i Keeping up steam, Losee placed an additional half i a length between him and his opponent, rowing forty strokes to his thirty-six, ana now seemed to I have the rac? In hand. In the next minute or so, ; however, there was a ch.tnge. as Roache. getting himself well straightened out, began to pick np, and when gono about lour minutes he I had so outpaced l.os^e that they were 011 even : terms, and the Nautilus man took every one bv I surprise by launching out so finely, which closed I the gap. Here tne race, and at Its most interest i ing point, wa? marred by a foul, and this seemed I tobe Koache s fault, but l.osee's judge did not claim it at the finish, and the matter was passed without much notice. Breaking away, the men did their best, but it was now evident that the Atalanta man was beaten, as Koache gradually drew away from him and gave him the full benefit of his wash. Going under Macomb's Dam Bridge Rosche was three clear boats' lengths in advance, and this distance was accomplished In exactly 7 minutes to Losee's 7 minutes anil 15 seconds. Kach was now rowing thirty-six strokes te the inlnute, Koache pulling in elever style and with case, while Ixisce's strength seemed io have tailed, and ho nsed his "sliding seat" in such an awkward manner as to be universally commented upon, the decision being that ho would have done much better with a stationary seat, the rig was so mis erable. Wnen away thirteen minutes Losee was thoroughly used up and Roache had the race In his hands, lie passed uuder tho High Bridge a winner by five boat lengths In 14 minutes 45 sec onds, amid mueh enthusiasm. Losee's time was I 14 minutes 67 seconds. The Atalanta boys re I turned home fully convinced that, like other sports, | "there's nothing sure in boating." The police reoort that a large quantity of finely , executed ten s'ent stamps are iu circulation. THE LATE MINISTER ORE. Reception of the Remain* from the Steamer Thuringia by the Knighti Templars? Procas ?ion from the Battery to the City Hall? Speeches of Deputy Grand Mas ter Thome and Mayor Have* meyer? Arrangements for the Fnneral on Friday? At tendance of the Sev enth Regiment TKe arrangements for paying a proper tribute of respect to lite memory of Uie late James L. Orr, United States Minuter to Russia, were continued yesterday, and coudacted with a solemnity an<l decorum that could not fall to show that when death comes to us it levels all distinctions, party or otherwise, in the remembrance that it 1* the in evitable lot of all men once te die. It was arranged on Tuesday that about half-past nine o'clock on tho following (yesterday) morning that the revenue cutior Jasmine should be in at tendance to take on board tho Knights Templars who were desirous of receiving the body.

The Thuringia, which was lying outside the pie* on the previous day, had taken her placo in the dock, and the Kntglita on landing had to pass through a large number or emigrants and their baggugo to leach the steamer. The Knights were received by Captain Me.ver, or the Thuringia, an?t on the deck they were taken to a very heavy look ing box, which contained tho caakot and the re. mains of the deceased Minister. The box bore the roliowmg Inscription : ? "J. L. o., Charleston. S. C." It was at once seen by the undertaker, Mr. Senior, thai it would cause considerable delay to unpack the box on board, and the Jasmine therefore eaine alongside the steamer, and, by aid of the holar, tne box was lowered on to tho deck or the cutter, the bed ol the steamer toiling meanwhile. On the passage down the river the case was removed and the casket was revealed. Tlljfi CASKET. The casket was heavily draped with Mack crape and trimmed with (luted fringes or the same ma terial, Interlaced with silver trimming. Pour rich, tassels 01 bullion silver hung at tne head aud loot, and a border or white s.ttin was placed around the casket.

Six or the eminent Commanders were appointed pall-bearers, and tho cemn was borne to the hearse, the Knights Templars forming In open order. The procession was then, lormed, with a police escort under the charge of Inspector Dilks. which wended its slow, runeral march along State streot and Broadway to the City ilall. Kescrves of police were stationed along the line, and the course or the trarilc was changed In order that there should be no interruption to its progress. On the public buildings and the hotel* the American (lag was flying at half-mast. THE CITV HALL. On reaching the city Hall a very Impresslvo scene was presented.
