ADM JOCKEY CLUB. Third Day of the Spring Meet ing at Jerome Park. A GRAND ATTENDANCE. Wealth, Fashion and the Multi tude Enjoying the Sport. THE LADIES AND THEIR TOILETS How One Peculiar Person Has Races of His Own. five capital races. Survivor the Winner of the Three-Year-Old Race, Mate of the Mile and Three-Quar ter Dash, Wanderer of the Westches ter Gup, Ophelia of the Hack Race and Village Slack smith of the Hurdle Baoe. The races at Jerome Part yesterday were blessed with One weather, fuij^ttendance and fair sport. K te impossible to please everybody, and those at Jerome Park who most frequent tbe pool stands at either end of the quurter stretch are among the ?tost difficult to keep In a state of high enthusiasm. Qlve them the wonderful moving picture of a flrat rati race, under the brightest sky and before the grandest assemblage possible, and that unfortu nate little investment at the pool stand puts a deep blue shade over the spectacle. A very little piece, Indeed, of this rennet ot the pools is sufficient to turn all their milk of human kindness into the eurds of cantankerousness and the whey of whining. Happy is the thought that not for the turfite only are the pleasures of contending coursers. The beautiful women and their gallant escorts who, in tnelr thousands, made the grand etand A BRILLIANT PICTURE OF HAPPY HUMANITY, who chatted pleasantly on the club house balcony ?r lined the winding walk down the bluff in ?plashes #f rich color, bad all the pleasure of the day undiluted. Silvery laughter, showing pearly teeth and making the peachy cheek of a fuller car mine, was heard on all sides, and champagne ?ever had a brighter sparkle than the eyes and ?plifts of the unprofessional spectators of the race. It was decidedly the best-attended day of the meet ing, as far as it has gone. The racing throughout was not so tine as on the previous days, but fun, Incident and enjoyment were more plentiful than ever. THE FIRST THREE DAYS ? 01 the meeting have passed away mid sunshine and dust. As a rule the Jockey Club have been rather unlortunate In their weather, and last year it was no uncommon event to find the gloomy aspect of the day make a postponement imperative to suc cess. The weather yesterday mornine at first had rather a doubtful aspect, and members sitting at ? dejeuner & la fourcfiette in a bow window at the Union Club discussed the prospects of the day. Under the genial influences of generous wine their thoughts took a brighter turn, and as tho morning grew into noon glorious Sol broke through the lowering clouds and gave a oouleur ae rose to the anticipations of the day. As noon approached the numbers of private equipages standing at the doors of the clubs and private resi iences suggested a brilliant sortU of the I'pper Ten la the direction ef the Park. THE STREAM OF VEHICLES, beginning in little driblets rolling in from the side streets, soon became of formidable dimensions, and, about one o'clock P. M? the entrance to Cen tral Park was crowded with carriages of every size, make and description. Every class of society was represented, and all wore that pleasant expression ?o commonly extant with those bound on a pleasure excnrslon. Up the gentle slope and vound past the statue of the great electrician whirled a neat little wagon drawn by a clever looking bay colt. The owner, one of the Judges of the meeting, looked the gentleman all over, and made the contrast all the more unfavorable to the member of the codfish aristocracy that followed, leaning back in a species of a high four-in-hand phaeton and shading his complexion with a yellow nmbrella lined with silk. 1 THE TINSELLY HARNESS ON THE FOUR BLACK ! HORSES, the brass and monograms so plentifully distributed over the carriage, and the two elaborately attired colored gentlemen on the box were In perfect keep ing with the owner, who looked down npon the humble individual in the one-horse con veyance with an air of lordly disdain. But, on the whole, there is a decided Improvement of late in th<^ style of equipage one sees in the Park, and yesterday there were some few turnouts that wffuld have done credit to the Bols or'Rotten Row. One very elegant, dark green ba rouche, unsnllled by any ornament except a small monogram and crest, drawn by a handsome pair of bay steppers, standing 16.3 high, aud with two neat looking men on the box In dark green livery, would have done credit to a royal stable and royalty Itself could not have furnished a more aristocratic quartet than those who GRACED ITS CUSUIONED SEAT8. Onward flowed the stream, sweeping past Stetson's and scattering on the Boulevard in medley order. Mow the sporting looking man tn the linen dus ter takes a good grip at the lines and wakens up ? big chested, sleepy-looking horse, that, upon call, strikes a tremendous gait, and then the fun begins. The trotters begin to brush with one an other, raising clouds of dust as they fly over the road, in eager competition. First one is ahead, breaks and falls back as another goes hy with a rush, followed by naif a dozen more hnnting him down. Tho race, however, Is not always to the swift, as some of the old steady goers atrike an even gait and keep it during the Jonrne.v, eventually arriving at their destination far ahead or many ot the speedy-footed. From twelve to three and from five to eight the road between Macomb's Dam and the track was envri oped In a cloud of dust so thick that it was nearly impossible to see twenty yards ahead. Thorn were NO ACCIDENTS, however, of any consequence, excepting, ofronrse the occasional loss of a wheel, but all tne damages were done homeward bound. Among the crowd ?f equipages TWO PEDESTRIANS that were noticed going and coming attracted con siderable attention. Kotli nexus were represented and the lady, a charming brunette, with a beautiful hrad of black wiry looking hair, was attired In an elegant black ?Ilk with a straw colored polonaise, which she trailed through the dust with that noble bearing of freedom emanating from the Preed mun's bureau. The companion or this dusky charmer was a blonde past the meridian or llie, whose gray beaM and mustache gave him a venera ble air. It. was aiterwards reported that the gen tleman was an ardent supporter of the equality or color, and that he took this occasion to exhibit his advanced views on the subject. Arrived in the I'ark there was the usual rush of red-capped darkles to capture any wagons or horses that the innocent might have the misfor tune to deliver to their tender mercies. "TASK MY NUMRRK, SIR," Was the Only response from these colored attend ants to the repeated Inquiries as to where the owner wa? likely to tlnd ins conveyance after the races were over. Crumbling, however, was use less, as the wagon was gone, and so. turning luto the grand stand the victim made the best of the situation, and soon forgot his troubles in the ex citement of the scene. When the last race was over the innocent coucluded to return home, and he then discovered the difficulties attendant on rapturing his wagon. CAPTAIN JACK HIMsRI.F could not have secured a better hiding place In the heart of the lava beds than did No . for the vic tim's wagon. Vainly he shonted the mystic num ber and wandered all over the track; but it was of oo avail, and in despair he returned to the grund ?land and waa preparing to return by the cart, when Wo. tamed up with (be horse and wagon. and relieved the innocent's learn. Til IC BCENB ON TUB TRACK. By half-past two the evidences or & line attend ance were plentiful Ttleh toilet* were everywhere, and ib& hubbub of the Investing Individuals, w bo had laid In a stock of "sure things" at various decreed of expenmveneM, wan made a little Babel ol bids and opiiiloni. The poo! seller, near the judges' Bland, waa in bis shirt sleeves, and so warm that thero was a perspiring energy In his announce ments ol prices, in his fondness for sport it would accm that every horse PROM fUE WlNN'IR TO THE "DUFFER" was alike dear to his soul. Punctual to the hour of three the three-year-olds in the first race were at the post. The start was had, the running made and the race won In a very short space or time. This was very natural, for the racers were not many and the distance was only & mile and a quar ter. It caused great excitement, however, aud brought the spectators on the grand stand to tlieir teet in a Uveij way. A PECULIAR SPECTATOR. An elderly gentleman in one of the front benches of the ladies' stand sat beside the writer. lie had beeu looking about him with a pleased expression, aud made several audible exclamations wheu any thing particularly struck his lancy. Blue-eyed blonde or a black-eyed brunette seemed equally acceptable to his appreciative (acuities, lie car ried a fleld glass in bis hand, and when he had sighted out a charming group under the shade of the trees on the bluff near the club house he lalrly chuckled with delight. As the jockeys rode out to warm their horses he inspected them thoroughly, and, having done so, Mat down coutentedly, lotded his arms and closed his eyes. During the short lived excitement or the race he never moved, but a quaint smile played over his features. An awk ward stumble on the part of his neighbor caused a sudden arousing of the old gentleman, and he jumped, with all the suppressed rage on his lace of a man who hud been wounded in HIS TENPUREST PLACE?HIS CORN*. "Sir," said he, addressing the writer, "it Is pain ful to have one's dreams shattered with a No. 12 boot." "Then yon were asleep/' "<)li, dear, no. lt'B lar more pleasant than look ing at the race. 1 don't like the course; you can't see more than hulf of It. While the horse and rider are hidden from view occurs a pause In the enjoyment, which 1b painful to me. I prefer to trust to imagination altogether. The cries of the spectators give me all the cues I waut, and my race then transcends anything that ever was seen on a worldly track." "You have a race ol yonr own?" "This is how it is:?I place the horses and riders in all their beauty of lorin and color In a scene of the most gorgeous setting?in ract. in any scene 1 please. 'They're off,' shout the multitude. Then > 1 set the horses going ? QUICKER THAN ANYTHING EVER RAN ON LEGS. It's surprising what speed 1 can attain in this way. 1 seem to ilv alone with them. There are millions of people, instead of thousands, looking on at my race. 'Survivor's ahead!' cry the ladles, and my Survivor leaps to the front like a magician 'p tsslug' a card. It takes hours to run my race, and the scene that I work up nt the finish is a mas terpiece of mediaeval pageantry. I wish I could show it to you." "Excuse me, sir," said a solid-looking Individual behind me, whispering in my ear. "He's perfectly harmless. I'll take lilm down stairs now and COOL HIS HEAD." This Is the way one individual enjoyed the race which brought Harbe, the English jockey, in his "teu ol hearts" Jacket, to the front. TIIK SECOND RACK created very little excitement, there being but two horses and the favorite winning. The Westchester Cup race was a fine contest, and from the interest taken in the rival stables and the length of the race (two unles and a quarter) the most important of the day. Wanderer came in ahead with a nigger jock on his back, who, according to the habit ol all young equestrians of color, could not keep HIS CAP ON THE TOP OP niS WOOL. The defeat of True Blue was noticeable because of the ract that he was ridden by Haywood, ol San ford'B stable, and although he made a bad start and was left behind in the first hall mile came in I second in handsome Btvle. THK FUN OP THE DAY was in the hack race, ridden by members of the Cluu at welter weights. It was only a three-quar ter mile dash, and was won by Mr. Peel's Ophelia without much trouble. Mr. Cent'*r, who rode the second horse, White Nose, has the air of a Ger man professor with glasses. As he neared the line his cap flew off. and an unkind and Irreverent "sport" on the quarter stretch, who has read Cowper's poems, repeated a line or two irom John Gilpin. A curious lact in this gentleman's race Is, that the multitude seemed t.o mistake the last horse for the winner (he was a good distance behind) and cheered him enthusi astically. There could have been NO IRONY IN THIS. could there ? A handsome silver cup, with pawing steeds Tor handles, went to the winner, a gold mounted whip to the second, and Mr. Purdy won his silver sours as a third. THE HtntDLS RACE was declared off, there being only two to start, and so the day closed with a hurdle handicap, wherein the Irish steeplechase rider, Gaffney, on Village Blacksmith, had it all his own way with Victor, who belled his name. THE LADIES AND THEIR TOILETS. The ladies, with their summer toilets, were as bewildering to describe as the phantasy with which Nature embroiders her veils in Midwinter. A lair, fresh picture truly they made of the Grand Stand aud the Club House, as ir a bursting sun beam had limued It. Among the beautiful faces there was one more beautiful than the rest?a silken, browu-halred maiden, with cheeks tinted with young blood, and modest hazel eyes full of sense ami sensibility, ller escort must have been her brother, for they scarcely moved or spoke since taking their seats. No lovers could remain so long silent; they had come evidently to enjoy the rac ing, as they seeaied rather to shun than court ob servation. There was one as busy as a honey bee in a fleld of white clover, who said she had "lost three times to-day," and was gloveles?. THIS VIVACIOUS, SPARKLING BKUNETTB was dressed In ruby silk, and wore her rich colors as becomingly and uaturally as "a bright bird." Here Is the handsome madatne whose semi-an nual visits to Jerome with her husband are not her only commendable pleasures. For such of our readers as are tired ol the eye wearying over the ruffled, fluted, rolded, puckered up, horizontally, lengthwise, crosswise, pyramidal and serpentine, with all the hues and colors or THAT FAMOUS OLD COAT OF JOSEPH'S, and with bigger buttons, we opine, this lady'a "new departure" will have charms. Her toilet was one where real elegance took the place or show. Her dress is the richest of "gros de Alric" fawn colored silk. The skirt was cut for carriage use, and trailed considerably; it had uo trimming of any kind?uo over skirt, no polonaise; the skirt full and gored in the ironl breadth only; the bodv plain and high at the throat, quite short at the waist, an easy,gracerul lit; the sleeve hair flowing, with point lace underslceve, flowing also; point lace col lar, diamond brooch and earrings. Over her shoul ders, gracefully disposed in folds aud fastened with onyx pins, was worn a magnificent black Chan tllly lace shawl or ampie size, the rounding corner in the back reaching well down on the skirt, show ing its elegant pattern to good advantage; bonnet of finest liCghorn, trimmed with black chantiily lace. A delicate brown vine creeps, clings and climbs so naturally ii and out among the rich lace as to give the impression it had grown there uuill it overrun the suamlt and fell down the back, where it burst out in clusters of delicate white bloom. Her gloves matching the diess, were three buttoned, stitched with black. HER COMPANION was a regal-looking girl or twenty-flve Summers, or thereabout. Her dress vas black silk tissue, with Spanish flounces put oi in boxplaits, headed by a very full rnche or plnked-out violet silk; under dress or violet; "reuiugjte" or rich violet corded silk, broadly banded an4 knotted low down on the right side, with black site velvet on the bias: coat sleeve, with black velve; pointed cufT: a rull wide plaited fall of white tule at the hand; the same soft ?ulle ruche, only much fuller, encircled her milk-white throat, her fair hair was frizzed on the rorehead ft la mode and combed rrom the back to the top of the head, wlitre It was surmounted by a white chip bonnet trimned In loops or pale violet ribbon, and white Alen<;on point lace and wild roses; black gloves stitcUed with white; pink coral earrings and necklace. A MISS tf SIXTEEN wore a light blue silk with rutnes three Inches wide, Ave In number, ?n her rather short skirt. These ruffles were pinke4 on both edges,white Swiss poiouatse, blue gloves, Leghorn flat, banded with plain, very light blue rubon, No. 10 in width, tied in a careless bow at tie back of the crown, with long ends. Her long, naturally curly hair formed no inconsiderate part of her beauty, but its chiefest charm was her angelic blue eyes, which harmou .lzcd bo well with her dress. "A WEALTHY WIDOW ' appeared in a most unobtrusive ind engaging style. It was black satin, with black lace flounce three-rourthB of a yard deep, headed t.y two black silk ruffles bound with the silk, black silk polonaise, trimmed with three ruffles edged with narrow edging. Her bonnet was also Muck, with black flowers?a Krenchy stvle or suit throughout. Nothing could be more complete, relieved as It was by her beautiful bouquet in a golden filagree holder. White silk parasol, covered with white real blonde lace?no jewelry but rings. Two young ladies, belonging to New Jersey, wer< dressed lu bright blue poidlns, ALIKE IN ALL PARTICULAR}; sllvor-grav split straw rouud hats, vith gray os trich tips, while mohair lace sacquei. with wide, flowing sleeves, blue gloves, blue firasols, with black Chantiily covers. They were the win beauties of the day. BLUE WAS THE PREDOMINANT 'OLOR among the many lancy colors wtfu. The fine striped gray and black and black aul white silks made "eu suite" look equally well <> the peachy blonde and the ruby-lipped brunette lu looking from the one thus dressed to the ot!er wo find it so altogeiher becoming there reuuins only the simile?"the lily and the rose." COMING HOME. The club houses on the road were liberally pat rouizcd, as the thickness of the dust; atmosphere had a tendedcy to irritation of thethrout unless that organ was kept well moistened ?y the bever ages to which It was accustomed, iter crossing the bridge the drive home was ver] pleasant, as the watering carts had evideutly been out in foroe ?nd done good service. Kiny stopped on the road and in the Pak to din ner, preferring to escape the crowd and jog home quietly in the evening, on he way back the Park waa very crowded, as burners of those 1 wliom the cares of business would not allow to leave in the afternoon drove out in the evening to meet their friends returning borne. There was a large noirber ol equestrians out enioyimr a ride In the cool eveuing air, anil if our New York belle# were to take more ol ?uch exercise they would not re quire ai tlfieicial means to freshen the bloom on their cheeks. THE RACING. The admirers and Judges of good racing were charmed yesterday with the sport that came off-at JertAue 1'ark. The weather was dcllghtfu', the track in capital condition and fast running was the re sult. Five races were on the card: the first a dash of a mile and a quarter between seven three-year olds; the second a dash of a mile and three-quar ters; the third the Westchester Cud; the fourth a hack race, by members of the Club, and the llith a hurdle race. The first was for a purse for three-year-olds, with penalties for the winners of the Belmont and Ladies' Stakes, but neither of these put In an appearance. The starters were John F. Chamberlln's bay colt Survivor, by Vandal, dam by Lexington; M. A. Littell'a chestnut colt Fellowcraft, by Austra lian, dam Aerolite; D. D. Withers' bay colt Stoneliemre, by Blair Athol, dam Colmbra; A. B. Lewis A Co.'i bay colt Bob Johnston, by Hunter's Lexington, dam by Oliver; James A. Grlnateud's chestnut filly Eclair, by Lightning, dam Brenna; I. W. Pennock's bay colt by Planet, dam RebeccaT. Price; U. Bell's bay colt McKadden, by Lightning, dam Nora Crelna. Survivor was the favorite In the majority of the pools sold; but Stonehenge In many of them overtopped him. Joe Johnson was the third In favor, as every one knew he was a dangerous colt when he lelt In a running mood; but lie Is one of the uncertain klud, liable to sulk and stop at any time during the race. He ran kind at Baltimore and made a good race. He was backed to do the like yesterday; but It turned out his day to Bulk, and he was Badly beaten by threo of the Btarters. Mr. Chamberlln's colt Survivor won the race very handily, Mr. Llttell's Fellowcralt running second and Stonehenge third. Stonehenge followed Survivor when the latter made his run for the lead after running a little over half a mile and succeeded in reaching second place; but after going a mile he was pumped out, and Fellowcraft overtook him and beat him home. None of the others were of any account in a race with bo good a colt as Sur vlvor at any distance. The winner Is a mag nificently formed colt, with a strikingly racing ap pearance. He runs close to the earth, and makea ver/ little apparent exertion In getting over the ground. There was a great deal of money won and lost on the result of this race. Fllteen hun dred and flftv-two pools were sold on the race in the Freucli Mutuals alone. ..... , ? The second race was for a purse, the distance be lnir one mile and three-quarters. The entries were M. H. Sanford's bay colt Mate, by Australian, dam Mattle UrosB. lour years old; D. McDanlel A to. a chestnut colt Hubbard, by Planet, dam Minnie Mauslleiu, lour years old, and J. F. Wilson A Co. s chestnut, colt John Boulger, by Kevolver, dam Mat tic C. The latter did not come to the scratch. Mate was the lavorlte In this race at live to three, and there was large betting on the result. Mate made a trailing race ol It and won on the last hun dred yards. He came In a length ahead. 1 his la Mate's second victory, he having won a mile aud a uuarter dash the first day of the meeting, the lierse Is very fat, yet he manaueu to carry his adipose very cleverly and runs like a race horse. He seems in the right condition lor the campaign belore him. The doubt that some people expressed about Mate's ability to run on Is now out at resW as he did net seem much dis tressed oy the run on this occasion. Hubbard per formed about as well as his backers supposed he would, but they reckoned too lightly on the capa bilities of his opponent. ^ _ .. ... The third race, and the great event of the day, was lor the Westchester Cup. This race was inau gurated in 1807, and, with the Belmont and Ladles stakes, Is looked lorward to every Spriug lueeting as an event of great importance. Mr. won it first with Loadstoue, a six-year-old, who carried 131 lbs., in 4:10*; In 1868 Local won the Cup, with 114 lbs. up, he being a live-year-old, in 4:03 V; the Banshee won it in 1869, in 4:19)i; in 1870 It was won by Helmbold, In 4:11; In 1871 by Preakness, In 4:15 V. In 1872 by Harry Bassett, in 4:18)*, and yes terday by Wanderer In 4:04. Since Loadstone s time the winners have each carried weight foi aire. The contestants, on this occasion, were luce A McCormlck's chestnut hoi Be W anderer, by Le* ington, dam Coral, 5 years old; John F. Chamber lln's bay colt True Blue, bv Lexington, dam Bal loon 4 years old; Thomas W. Dos well's bay horse Kolus, bv Lcaiuington, dam Fanny Washington, ft vears old; Lice A McCormlck's bay lllly Bessn- Lee, bv Hunter's Lexington, dam bv Chorister, and Isaac w. i'ennock's bay colt by Vandal, dam Mar. Eavine. The betting was very heavy, Kit* A cCormlck's entries having the call In the pool sales. True Blue being second choice, Kolus third. Wanderer cut out the work at the start and showed the way to the end. True Blue being second. The ? utter became very restive when taken to ihe starting Place, and It was with difficulty that he was induced to go up with the others: lie seemed inclined to run the other way. He looked rather thin in flesh, and did not start with the same vim that he showed at Baltimore. lone in netting in motion when the flag fell that he was tllteen or twenty lengths behind the leader at the stand alter running a quarter of a mile, ami It was our impression then that he would have to be the best liorBe in the world If he could shut up such a can and win the race from so good a horse as Wanderer. Trne Blue did outrun and beat all the others in the race; but he could not overtake Wanderer. The race was a remarkably fast one, and the winning of the cup in the time made, 4:04, stamps Wanderer a race horse of a superior order. Wanderer and Trne Blue will meet again on the 8th of July at Molimouth Park, in a race for the Monmouth Cup. Kolus ran a steady, good race, but he was out-paceu by the above-mentioned racers From the manner that Wanderer dashed away at the start it was the general impression that he was making the pace for his stable com panion, Bessie Lee, and that she was the one that was to win the race, and not until the Wanderer had run two miles were the people satisfied that lie was the winning horse. The race was a capital one, and will long be remembered by these who W The "hack race followed. This was for a subscrip tion eun valued at $600; the second horse to re ceive a gold-mounted wnlp and the third horse a pair of spurs. There were five entries, all the horses to be ridden by members of the American Jockev Club. The entries were W. fc. Peet s bay liiiv o'nhelia by Jerome Edgar, dam Pasta, 4 years olif carrying 146 lbs.; Kobert Center'B chestnut St Wimlhose by km* Lear, dam Erring. 4 years old, 14ft lbB.; A. B. Purdy's gray colt Frank Swlit, by Eugene, dam Faith, 4 ycftrs old, 14S lb..., J. Q. K. Lawrence's gray gelding Locntnvar, by llverston. dam Bridget. 6 years old, 153 lbs., and i Ciason s brown gelding Spider, pedigree un known. The gentlemen riders were all beautiluily dressed In their own recorded colors, and roue very finely. Mr. Peet and his lllly Ophelia won a verv easy rare, Mr. Center with Whltehose second and Mr. Purdy with Frank swift third. Mr. Law rcnce was slow in netting away, and was fourth at the finish. He was the favorite before the start at even money against the field. Many of his friends '"Vhe^loslng event of the day was a handlcsp hur dle race between J. O. K. Lawrence s chestnut horse Village Blacksmith and Peter Walden s bay horse Victor, the former carrying 150 pounds and the latter 134 pounds. There were no poo s on this race, as it was an Impromptu affair, the li'"JJ' race announced to take place having lallen thr jutfh by the withdrawal at the last moment of one of the horses ami alter thousands of dolliirs lia1,! b< e n wagered on the result.

SMITHT0WN TB0TTING. An Interesting Race Between Lady Jones, Pat Jtlalloy and Minnie, In which the Former la the Winner In !4i4l 1-4. There was a fine trot at the Smlthtown Driving Park yesterday, for $1,000, between S. S. Jones' bay mare Lady Jones, C. D. Smith's bay gelding Pat Malloy and B. H. Jones' sorrel mare Minnie. In drawing for places Minnie won the pole, with Pat sccond and Lady Jtues third. Firm Heat.?There was a good send-off at the second start. Minnie was crowded out ou the grass, but in rounding the first turn she got out of the way and passed the quarter pole in forty sec onds, leading handsomely, with Lady Jones second and Pat close behind until he lost hia feet and fell back. Minnie kept her place well, and was nearly two lengths ahead of the Lady at the half-mile pole In 1:21, when, without any apparent cause, she broke badly, letting both the others |>ass her. She did h"1 K?' fairly quieted down again during the \ lc. wai' Won Jones in 2:4J>?, with I at about two lengths behind and Minnie at least a half-dozen lengths behind him. ?Sttxwt Heat?lady Jones now took the pole, and a good start was made at the first trial. Lady Jones at onCe shot ahead, and passed the quarter pole in 41. with Pat two length* behind aud Minnie close with Mm, pushing hard for "^nd Place.

Third Heat.?K very even Btart was made, though Minnie's friends claimed that she was not working as steadily as usual, which la probable, from tlie fact that, she broke soon alter the word was given, and (ell three or roar lengths behind. Lady Jones trotted steadily on, with Pat only a length beluail at the quarter pole, in 40, and she kept gaining until she passed the half-mile, four leugths ahead, in 1:20, Pat leading Minnie hand somely. At the three-quarter pole the relative positions of the l.adv and Pat were about the same; but Minnie, having fairly re covered herself, was gaining upon them, and as she came Into the homestretch she struck a rattling gait, parsing Pat and getting nearer to the Lady at every stride.

Pittsburg, Pa., June 14, 1873. Last night a serious riot occurred at Beaver Falls, arising out of the social habits or Chinese employes. It appears that the Cutlery Company have In tneir employ upwards of two hundred Celestials under the charge of two Interpreters, Ah Poy and Clio llong. There exists between these Joss worshippers a rivalry and bitter reeling of Jealousy, which became manifested on more than one occasion. The rules of the Cutlery Com pany are very strict, and among the orders lately issued was one prohibiting the use ot opium and another forbidding gambling by Chinamen. Ah Poy hlmsetr, it Is stated, suggested the idea of at tacking those besetting evils or the children or the Flowery Kingdom, who take such delight in sin ning that way. Yesterday, in pursuance 01 the order against J opium, Craic, one or Ah I'oy's party, went so far as to take the pipe out or thn month or a Chlna I man who was soothing Ills nerves with opium. 1 This was a signal ror a grand row, and the victim or this act of oppression assailed Crane with abuse, in which he was soon joined by others. Finally they branched off from Crane and opltim to an attack on Ah P?> and his management of China men's wages. They charge him with swindling and mismanagement, 11s lie hail control ol all their earnings and their actions. They say that they are In lact sens ol this agent, aud their wages are entirely at his disposal. Toward nlghtrall all the Chinamen in the employ or the company struck from work and the excitement was Intense. As soon as It became dark four or the discharged men crept under the shed bv which Ah Poy was known to pass on hiswaytolils residence. 'I hey were all well armed WITH KNIVES AND HEAVY IRON CLl'BS, and had murder lu their hearts. They were rein forced by about forty or Ch? Hong's party, and when they got into the streets of Beaver lu their wild rage the scene was calculated t? alarm every one. Ah i'ov. however, managed to reach the residence of Crane, where lie lound refuge (torn Ms pursuers. They coolly Invited him out to meet them, pledging theii words as gentlemen thatir lie did they woald cut him Into pieces. The whites, who like to see lights among Chinese, were there, and incited them to deeds of blood, with ample as surances that they would see them out of trouble. Fortunately, Ah Poy cscaped injury. Finally the excitement was quelled In the street, but when the Chinamen repaired to their quarters the sounds which proceeded from them were a medley of the wildest and most contused charac ter1. Cho Hong und his brother Celestials refused to work to-day and were discharged. They will pack up their traps on Monday and leave for Call lornia. They mav go away qutetlv, but the white 1 people of Beaver Falls are apprehensive or trouble. COLUMBIA COLLEGE EXAMINATIONS.

The Somersetshire stakes -Morningrton Bcorsl Another Victory?The Great Northern Handicap?freeman Wins for the Second Time?Decline of Betting on the Derby?The Backers Have No Money. London, May 22, ma. Half a dozen ueetlngs tiro being held tins week in various parts of the country, and the two prtu cipal?those of Bath nnd York?have been brought to a close, each havlug lasted a couple of dajB. None of the gatherings of the week, however, are of great Importance; but at one period that at Hath was one of the most flourishing in the King dom. It was especially remarkable for tn<> heavy betting on the Derby which used to mark its prog ress. In the intervals of the races I havo seen many thousands of pounds betted on the great event of next week, and In the large room of the ?'Castle'* Hotel at night the crowd used to be so dense that it was almost impossible to move, while the Derby speculation that took plscc was of gigan tic magultudc. It was here, for example, that Caractacus, who had been a complete outsider, "dropped from the clouds," and a week later won the greatest race tn the world over the ? Epsom Downs. It was at Bath that we were in the habit of seeing commissions worked on horses that had previously cut bat an Indifferent figure on the quotations or had not been heard of at all, while the operations in regard to the favorites were always watched with extreme interest. Those days have gone by, perhaps forever, and the seen? presented at Bath this week would have led even the warmest admirers of the sport to comc to the conclusion that tho BRITISH TITKP" 19 ON ITS LAST LEGS. During the two days not a dozen bets were ne? got latcd ou tho Derby en the course, and at night the "Castle" was a howling wilderness. The large room was occupied only by two or three "bagmen'! and as many farmers from the neighborhood, who, far from speculating on the Derby, "care for none of these things." Not a single bcttlAig man ap peared during the evening, and tho regular backers of horses were as "conspicuous by their absence." Not a single bet was laid, not even an offer on the Derby was heard, at a place which has In past years echoed with shouts of thousands, and which haft seen fortunes placed at stake In a lew minutes. .The contrast was one of the most remarkable I ever saw, and to those who hold the opinion that tho turf cannot exist wltheut betting?and they com prise nearly all who know anything of the subject must have been depressing In the extreme. Tho same was the cade at York. On tho "Knaves' Mire''?one or the most famous racing grouuds in England, and In tho heart of a district noted abovo all others for its lovo of the horse aud Its deep In terest tn turf pursuits?not more than a dozen trausactlonB on the Derby were effected during the two days of tlio meeting, ana the subscription room at llarker's Hotel? whero In the prosperous days ot the sport ? we have witnessed operations of immense magni tude, wan almost completely deserted, and was silent, but for the whispered Jeremiads of the two or threo members who occasionally dropped in, looked round tliein ibr a few minutes, and then suddenly departed. Tills state of matters is due, no doubt, partly to the laet that tho BACkERS HAVE NO MONEY1, and that, Indeed, their ranks are so reduced thaB they cannot make a Hhow of betting. The English turf has never thoroughly recovered from thei wild, "plunging'1 days of the Marquis ot Hastings, the Duke of Newcastle and other gamblers of less note, who were sucked down iu that ter rible turf inaclstrsm. Even those among tho backers who can afford to speculate see that betting is a good thing only for ono class?the betting men who have had it always all their own way, but wh* are becoming more njP*" cious every year. Most of tho money that now circulates on the tsrf Is derived not from wealthy men of fashion, who take to the sport as an amusement, but from the general public, who dabble through ceinuiUsion agencies in halt sove i relirns, pounds and "livers,'' and never see a race course ivoiii one year's end to another. 1 his is not enough to keep up the old vitality ol our turf, and within a week of our greatest race, we find tl le be t ting men gloomily staring at each other iti the rings at Haiti and Vork, having no work to do with the public and fearing to gamble among themselves, under the Impression that in doing so they stay, I.IKE XII.X1NNY OATS.
