THE HARLEM NAVY. New York's Natural Advan tages for Rowing. The Various* Boat Clubs on the Harlem RiTer?The Harlem Regatta? Prospects for the Season, just in proportion as the traveller upon the sea I baa been accredited with greater courage and more varied experience than he who traverses whole continents of terra Jlrma, so aquatic sportsmen have always been Invested with more general in terest than those who tread tho ball or cricket fields. It 1b probable that should the navigation or tbe air?a darling scheme to the mind of maikslnce the age of Da*dalus?become a matter of fact in stead ef theory the charm of the sea would soon disappear. To-day yachting has become the great Bummer pastime, and it is so only because It com bines at once the most aristocratic leisure with just enough danger and variety to make it charming. ROWING AS A NATIONAL SPORT. Scarcely Inferior as a national Bport and as a means of developing a hardy race of American citizens is tho exhilarating and time-honored amusement of rowing. Prom among tho general wreck or everything which in tbe days or antiquity tended to ennoble and invigorate the mortal frame wlihont making it depraved have alone remained, ?a having any degree of attraction for young men of tbe present day, the sportB on the water. Res cued to us, in all probability, by the energy and persistence with which our Kngllsh cousins have kept the sport alive from year to year, youug America now bids lair to become imbued with tltc Mine national spirit. Each year witnesses the formation or new clubs and tbe growth of old ones. Each ?ummer season records a material advance- | mcnt in tbe style and finish of the American oars van. TUB NEW YORK ROWING CLUBS. New York has net been behind other cities in tbe enoourageuieut which has been given in this country to rwwlng. Several large aud prosperous boat clubs have long existed, and have numbered femong their membership some oi Mew York's best sons. Until within a very short time the Hudson and EastKivers were tUe scenes of all the regattas, and along these banks the boat houses of all the clubs were locate*. But as a rule the waters of the North River were too rough for shell boats, and tbe Kast River was so lull ol tugboats aud steamers as to render rowing ansale. As a consequence the rowing interests have gravitated toward THE HARLEM RIVER, and it Is not Improbable that within a few years all the boat-houses will have been moved to that localitr. The Ilarlem lUvcr is peculiarly adapted for rowing. It is sufficiently wide to start any reasonable number ?r boats, and over tho usual course, {Tom the ruilroud bridge to tligh Bridge, is stralghter than half the rivers over which match races are rowed. Its waters are uot troubled by many steamers, and, save the tide? which in the eastern end or tliu river is never very strong?there is no curreut to be encountered. The river is free from obstructions below McComb's Dam, and the bridges over tho river at several points afford excelleut opportunity for several thousand spectators to see the regattas. CANOEING ON TOE HAllLEM. A new boating interest is gradually developing on the Harlem, and, under the guardianship ol tho various rowing clubs, canoeing is likely to oecoine even more popn'ar than the Canoe Cluii seems to make it. Several of the clubs hope, before tbe seavon is over, to number among their list of cralts both Laden Powell aud Lob Lov canoes. The Nautilus Club already has In its bout house the canoe Dolly Varden, the narrative of whose cruise among the headwaters of the Mississippi was pub lished last year lu the IIeralu. The oourse for canoe cruises is out through the channel between Randall's Island und tbe mainland, and up the bound, eithor to Flushing or to Fori Schuyler. THE BOAT HOLIES ON TI1L UAULEU are approached rrom tho loot or 130ih und 133d streets, and are so situated us te give u clear waterfront to alL The new structure or the Gra mcrcy Club is not surpassed by anything of tho kind around New York. The Naosau Club has three houses and the.v are ull filled. The Athletic Club has erccted a large house on the waterfront of their grounds, and, with tho exception of the Crameicy, ihey have, perhaps, the best quarters on thn river. Their house ib rather more accessible than the others inrther up the river. The Nautilus, Dauntless,^Columbia College and Sappho Ciubs are all very comrortubiy located and their members are all enthusiastic 011 the subject ol rowing. THE GOMINO UKUATTA on the 18th of June Is auxiousiy anticipated by all the clubs. The programme, now in the hands of a regatta committee, has not fnlly been determined upon as yet; but It is certain that ihcic will be u race Iot lonr-oared crews, lor single sculls aud for pair-oar boats. It has been suggested and Is very probable that a canoe race, after the English lash Ion, will be added to (lie Int. Hie method adopted In such a race is to have a three mile course, In the middle or which a landing Is to be made, nnd a carry-over el about one hundred and liity leet made, arter which the beat is to be again launched and the course completed. The river is too narrow for a sailing race only under tho most favorable circumstances. THE COURSE FOR THE REOATTA will In all probability be from a stancboat near the railroad bridge, oae and a quarter miles up the river toward High liridge. The English plan of running in heats will be udoptcd. The straight away course selected by several of the clubs stretches from the railroad bridge to Morris' dock, above lllgh liridge; distance three mile". The the diamond scuiis will have AUaujr CUulpGtllurS. The Columbia College six-oared crew are being trained by Henry Ward for the Inter-Collegiate Regatta at bprnigfleld. They are a strong set of men. and their trainer claims for them good muscle and endurance, which will show up to ad vantage when they enter the llnal contest.

Card from Mr* O'Donnell. To the Editor op tub Herald:? The unusual oircumstance of the Annnal Supply bill, which in the aggregate appropriates millions of dollars from the public treasury, being allowed to remain in the custody of an officer of the Assem bly for twelve days unsigned by the presiding offi cer, without whose certificate of its passage it would lail to become a law, with the comments of the press" thereon, will justify me in this communi cation. The bill being properly engrossed I declined to send it to New York to obtain the nresiding officer's signature, for the reason that 1 was un willing to trust so important a bill out of my cus tody at Albany. Some days after, in reply to a tele gram, I also decliued to print the bill to send to the dllteiint members of the conlerencc committees, they Having left for their respective homes, for the reason that I hau no authority either to print or to send out a bill without the signature of the proper authorities which would make it a law. Nor had any members of the committees or any other person any authority to change or alter In any manner the bill as it passed, either to correct their own errors or of any other persons, even if such errors were to be found. The assumption of such a power, and its exorcise alter the functions of the Legis lature had expired, would be very dangerous, and a clear violation ol the lundamentai law. If errors are made at the Clerk's desk In engrossing a bill after a report irom a confer ence committee to the House they are easily delected. The report of the committee is always lu writing, and is transcribed upou the journal. Tlie original report goes wrth the bill first to the Speaker, and then to the Gov ernor. The Speaker may compare the bill with the written report of the Conference Committee, before being signed, if lie deems It necessary. The Gov ernor is suppo*"d in Important bills to perform a similar duty. II the bill agrees with the written report no person can change it. The acceptance of the report by the Legislature, being a legislative act, no power can change or alter It but the Legislature. The duty of the Clerk was to see the bill correctly engrossed at once, ready for the signature of the Speaker. The duty was faith fully performed. The bill has become a law by the signature of the officers of both houses, anu has been approved by the Governor. In' the Interest or I'ood government, and for the reputation of all who may be interested, I trust that hereafter no MR of such vast importance will be permitted, under any pretence, to remain in the custody of any person alter the Legis lature has ndjourned, except the Governor of the State. If for any cause a bill may be kept iu the posse.-sion or an officer of the Legislature lor twelve days, it may be kept tor an indefinite time. The opportunity'thus given to fraudulently change the btll and accom panying message, so as to make both agree, ought not to he allowed under any circumstances. The fact that this bill has been kept locked up In the Assembly safe, and has not been tampered with, gives no assurance for the future, 'i he confidence reposed by the people In the integrity of the offi cers of the last Assembly ought nut to be used to establish a dangerous precedent. Kvery bill which passes the Legislature should be carried to the Ex ecutive chamber with the least possible delay. J. O'DONNKLL. Albany, Saturday, June 14, 1873. THE LONG ISLAND MAYORALTY CON TEST. The jnry in the case of Dltmars vs. Debevolse, which was a suit tried In the Supreme Court, Brooklyn, to decldo which of these gentlemen was elected to the office ol Mayor of Long Islaud City, appeared in court yesterday morning and an nounced that there was no possibility of th??lr agreeing upon a verdict. They had oeen locked up over night, and Judge Ramsey, being satisfied that there was no use of keeping them together any longer, discharged them. It is understood they stood ten to two in favor of defendant. This trial occupied in-ariy a fortnight, but it excited very little in terest. Mr. Debevolse Is now acting as Mayor of Long Island City, having received the certificate of election. DEATH OF A WILLIAMSBURG MILLIONNAIEE, Mr. James M.

THE OCEAN CHALLENGE CUP. PrtpanUrai for the Contests of Thll Season Between Sandy Hook and Bren* ton's Heef. Two years ago the Commodore of the New Tor* Yacht Club presented a challenge cup to the Club, to be sailed for by yachts belonging to all rec ognized yacht clubs. The course was from Sandy Book Lightship to and around the lightship off New port (Orenton's Reef) and back to the starting point, passing outside of Long; island. Yachts were allowed the privilege of going either side of Block Island. Owing to the lateness of the season there was no race sailed in 1971^ and titer postponing the event from July 18, lbT'i the Madeleine and Rambler started on July 26 of the same year, and the latter won easily, as the former did not sail over the course. A second match was sailed later in the season, and also won by the Rambler, whose owner has since returned the cup to the Club, in accordance with the views of the donor, as herein stated, First.?It is to be held by the winner for thirty days a'ter the rnce without liability to challenge. seooiut.?Upon the expiration of that period the winner must accept anv challenge and be prepared to s;iil a race over the same course within fifteen days from the receipt ol such challenge, or forfeit the cup to the challenger; but ahouTu any yacht succeed In holding the cup in two consecutive races during one season It will not again be liable to challenge until the commencement of the yacbtlug season of the following year. Third.?'The yachting bc ason in American waters, in reference to this cup, Is understood to be from the third Thursday In June until ttitf third Thurs day In October in each year. t\ uri.h.?Siiould a yacht holding this cup be sold out pf the New York Yacht Club the cup shall not ro with her, but Rhall be returned to the Club, to be again sailed lor; and if the cup should be held by a lorcign yacht and she should be sold out of the cluh To which she belongs the enp shall not be sold with her, but shall be returned to the New York Yacht Club, to be sailed for ugaiu as above provided. Fifth.?In the event of the cup being held at the close of the season by a roreign yacht tho owner thereof will be liable to challenge during the i season of the next year for an ocean race, over a course iroin the Needles, Islo ol Wight, to and around a slakeboat off the harbour of Cherbourg, and return. The itegatta Committee have called a meeting of all yacht owners belongiug to any organized yacht club, to be held on Tuesday afternoon, at three o'clock, in the office of Mr. William Krcbs, Sr., 52 Wall street. Yacht owners are especially invited to be present, as it Is the intention of the commit tee to appoint u day and make other arrange ments lor the sailing of the above race. The com mittee are anxious to hear the opinions of yacht owners as to a suitable day wheu the largest entry can be obtained. TIIE WILLIAMSBURG 1ACUT CLIB. Sunday excursions, as a class, do not meet with general approbation; but wben these excursion are Indulged In by hardworking men, whose only ' opportunity of having a little pleasure Is on the Sabbath, the public are more Indulgent. Such an excursion took place yesterday. It was the "second annual crulsc aud chowder of the Wil liamsburg Yacht Club." This club was organized in 1870, and is composed entirely of workingmen There were only about twolvo members wfcen the club was started; but it hus grown rapidly since, there being at present thirty-live. The fleet con sists of fifteen boats, ranging from seventeen feet to forty leet In length, comprising cabin and open boats, The ottlcors of the club are:?Commodore, William n. Hexter; Vice Commodore, James Clif ford; secretary, C. K. Mlclke; Treasurer, Charles Lohman; Measurer, James Conway. The yachts started Iiom their anchoragc, foot of Eagle street, tireen I'olni, at 10 A. M. First to get under way was the large working schooner Kdwin Collyer, owned by Captain Sampson, with the members and guests of the club on board. The jib and mainsail boat Pigeon started next; then the cabin sloop >aclit Michael Connoway, ana at the same time the cabin sloop yacht a>oroeress the winner of the first prize last year; then the jib and mainsail bout Rodgers, and bringing up in the rear was the cubin sloop yacht Jennet, with the music aboard. THERE WAS TITTLE WIND AT TUB START, but It waH enough to give the boats a chance for a "brush" on the way to their destination, Hiker's Island. The Michael Connoway, wishing to get the best ol her adversary, the sorceress, ran to the westward of Blackwell's Island, but the Sorceress kept gaining steadily as the wind freshened, and when they met at llell Gate was some distance ahead. She led tho fleet until they reached Hiker's Island at eleven A. M , where the yachts anchored, and the party of about two huudrcd went ashore. Preparations were made to cook the chowder, aud ere long the tire was blazing under the pot. While the cooking was going on some of those not en gaged In It amused themselves by strolling over the Island, others by swimming, aud a chosen few started for a sail toward* the bound In the yachts Sorceress and Pigeon. By the time the sailing party returned the chowder was ready, and soon all were busy devouring it, and consuming the contents of six ke^-a of lager placed along the rocks at couvcuicnt distance for the benefit of all con cerned. A short time elapsed before the contents or the chowder pot and of the lager beer kegs had disappeared, and notwithstanding the fact that SIXTY BDSnKLS OF CLAMS, two barrels of potatoes, two barrels of hard tack, with pork and other ingredients In propntioti had beed used In making the chowder, yet it was so good that wheu it was all gone the party wished for more. After embarking, the yachts and schooner started at three P. M. for nome, where thev arrived about half-past four P. M., all , feeling well contented with the day's snort. The unuual regalia of this club will take place i on the 15th of July. The course will be from the i club bonne, foot or Ragle street, around Throgg s i Point buoy and back. [ THE BROOKLYN_YACHT CLUE The judges of the Brooklyn Yacht Cinb regatta appear to have got rather mixed in their decisions, as they have now reversed their last order and awarded the Madeleine and Pleur de Lis the schooner prizes and the Vision and Undine the first class bloop prizes. On Thursday evening they de cided that there was no prize awarded in the schooners and first class sloops, as no boat in either of those classes had made the raoc within eight hours. This decision was made in the lace of the printed regulations governing tho race, where one clause gives to understand that the race would be valid lor all classes, provided any boat of any class made the race within tbe required eight hours' time. The judges, however, saw the injus tice of such a regulation, and, hunting through the Club book, discovered the following:?"Chapter e, paragraph 14.? Nor shall a prize be due to any class except tbe distance shall have been performed by the winning boat of Its class in eight hours, lrnot performed in that time i?y the winning boat of any i class the regatta shall bc repeated at a time to be ' appointed by the Regatta Committee." The lan- I guage in the above aud its drilt were too plain and comprehensive to be misunderstood, aud so the ludg?s ruled accordingly. Since then the Jndgea have learned that the Club had suspended the above rule, ami therefore they immediately awarded the prizes to the winning schooners and first class sloops, it is not, expweted, however, that the owners of either of the winning yachts will nold the prizes so won, as the race was stinpiy adrift, but they will probably give theiu back to tho Club and fie race will bc sailed over again. YACIIi'ING NOTES. The following yachts passed Whltestone yester day :? Sea Drift, N.Y.Y.C., Mr. Major, from Nautucket for N>w York. Yacht Rcana, B.Y.C., from New York, cruising Eastward. CONVIVIAL CRISPINS. How One of the New York Brothers was Muletccl by a Psendo Brother from i Troy. Mr. William Casey, shoemaker, of 10 II?nry ] street, met on Saturday alternoon, in a saloon in i the Bowery, a young man named James Duffy, who [ introduced himself as a brother Crispin hailing from Troy. Duffy had a very respectable nppear ance, and his agreeaiile manners won tne affection of Mr. t'a-ey, who at once expressed hts deslte to show his brother from Troy the hospitalities of tho I city. He brought lilin to the New England Hotel, procured a room for him and then visited the I different drinking saloons, ,%c., in tbe vicin ity, and introduced the gentleman from 1 Troy to all his mends and companions. Mr. Casey, about ten o'clock, became somewhat ; overpowered with his hospitable exertions and | sat flown on a stoop In llayard street, his friend 1 sitting down also. Mr. Casey dozed off, ami James i Dulfy relieved him ol his watch aud fl 60 m cnrrcney.

Sir Bartle Frerc's Address to the Indian and European Community of Bombay.

Extent of the Traffic on tho East Coast of Africa The Originators and Inheritors of the Enormity-Thirty Thonsand Human Beings "Exported" Every Year The Bhattias, Banians and lob anna Jobbers. By maii from the East indies we have the follow ing Interesting report of the progress ol the effort which la being made for the suppression of the slave trading interests among the native and Eu. ropean communities of British India, with statistics of the present condition or the slave traffic on the East coast of Africa. The exhibit is contained In a speech delivered by BIR BARTLE PRERK ON THE SLAVE TRAPB. IProm the Bombay Gazette, April 28.1 Yesterday evening a <\inv*rnazioiit, at which sir Bartle Frere, Colonel Pelly and the chief European and native gentlemen were present, was held near his olty, in tlse bungalow, at filrgaum, of the Ilou Mr. Munguldass Natlioobhoy. The compound was deeorated to a certain extent, and In a corner wo notlcod a transparency, which was doubtless In tended to represent the hero 01 the hour. The drawing room was completely filled with people His Excellcncy took a chair at one end of the room, and the principal visitors were accommo dated near lilm In a position eonvenlont for bearing. Among tho native gentlemen present were Kur sondass Ncnsee, Narronjeo Damodlmr, Jeyram Sewjee, Ebrainjee Sewjoe, Oopall Mowjee, Itaywa gur Rowjee, Anundjee Visram, Jeyram Goiidjee Vcerjee Damodlmr, Tarryu Topun, Jalrazbhoy Peer bhoy, Currimbhoy Soorjee, Lnckmldass Khirnjeo Dwarkadass Vussenjee, Kbutao Mnkhoond, Ma' thooradass Khetsey, Moolje Thaekersee, Ac. It Is probable that Mr. Munguldass purposely Invited the principal members of the Bhattia, Khoja and Bania community, as it Is people belonging to s?aveetrade8HeS Wh? ar?

I believe l wii? sent with this expedition mainly because I was for many years connected with lufmbay In teihi^ Jua ath?'lnuHafb01?' Wllal we llnvo bec" d0,n? dur ing the last lew months, of course von cannot expect me to enter into particulars abont the instructions which 1 received from the home government or even into particular? about the An'ti. ? w^n8hW hillle oxi,u'lltlcn Iiave carried out. ? w L i! ,? i . publ',c ln due time, and I trust It will be found to be satlsiactory. i shall mrrolv mention a lew or the matters which struck me most as having a connection with the Interests of some or the natives iu this part of India. In the first place, I was not prepared to dud the whole coast of ?ntt.reJf occupied, 80 far as tradeiscon Sfinrn i't^ 1110 rc,,>atH8. l believe that if you wished to net information on the former state or "mmercM affairs on the East coast' aa com^ with the present, you could not do better than ffnntiff"1'6 HCCHnnts of what the old Portu gnese found when they went there. Thev tell m< ?ii?? they found the whole of the t"ade and fho greator P'J administration of tho conntry in the bands of Moors, although from the description of tim!rnUm 11 tf,c ln thev managed the affiTlrs ortae States into which the country was divided thev appear to be precisely what we all know ?? t The?!.Jpn5?^ime<,ail ,nuiln2 classes of this eountrv. ihCBe Portngueso describe all the different. classes which we now fliid on the Eust coast, and it may bo as much news to you as It was to me that of nil classes there tho principal part of the i? bands of three or four of the castes Ii in i. 800..represented before me. First of all in Influence, ir not In numbers, there was a larre community or Jibattlu. and next a lew Banians fi Lohannas, who may bo said to represent r?J1"V,0? tr'^,nK ^ this great eu" frome clashes of natives ol India ure con spicuous by tholr total ahs?nce-Brahmlns for Instance. Chntryas, Bengalee Baboos the ShctMas or Madras and Marwarees. I 'found !n?r.C *re?1 M?bommcdan classes to be the most numerous in the trade-Khojas, Borahs, and 5rE!5l,!!8~"i?>ut of these the most numerous were the Khojas. It was u surprise to me that, from almost opposite Socotra down nearly to the Cape Colony and along the Madagascar coast, the whole trade seemed within the last forty or fifty years, to have passed into the hands of natives or India.' Youwin recollect that the Portuguese almost entirely extln fil if'J h IS Indian trade ou the Hast coast where Indians had almost ceased to be represented ex cepting by a lew who went from Kurracliee, Mun'd vie, and some of the Kattywar ports. Yet now "'A? 1 hfa*f 'or the last hair century, the natives or India have monopolized the East African trade to such an extent that I do not think it would be possible now to distribute or collect a cargo upon the African coast, excepting through the agency er some or your countrymen. I round that wnereVcr I went, not only la the larger ports but also ln the smaller village#, where there were only one or two ships, the shipper was almost S uL? rfi l("iin' These merchants might have been Khojas or Borahs, and there I used to find then) cx&ctly &h jou nii^ht seo them in shops In some or the outlying villages on the Guzerat o^nn1^1/ ,7mCrf, t,iejr 8,t <""P?n8lng their wares among tac Bbeels or the coolies surrounding them. I have mixed among those merchants, and so rar '2un.rt ,.hal tl,ey aU cither (?uzerati or Ilindostani. All this to me was quite a novelty. I knew that there was a large and in creasing commerce, but I repeat ttiat to me the extent to which India had monopolized the East African traffic was quite a novelty. I found that concurrent with this growth ol Indian Interests oil ^'nc:an C0*"1 this slave trade grew up which was the immediate object of my mission?a slave trade which Is now so extensively carried on that thirtu or more tfuruaand of human beings are, 1 . rf1?"!??1 ewr" Vearfrotn Afriua. I thought at first that this great trade must necessarily be an old evil; but we were told that it was an evil which had always existed, and no doubt a small trade did f *lst i,"?rc ?Vm? time ago. The reason mar bo this. Belore Indian merchants went back to the fcast Arrlcan const to resume a trade which thev had lost for the last 200 years, probably since the Mogul Kmpiro began to decay, a great piratical Helu bad sprung up, and tbe seas used to be swept by robbers. A great many of these pirates were, I a2? frraid' .of "uropoau descent, but they were chiefly Arabs. These pirates were sufficient to prevent the slave trade being carried on in its present state, because, as you may easily imagine, no ship filled with slaves could make any resistance against a well armed pirate. It happened thai two things occurred within the last lllty years. There had been a general resumption ol the old trade by Indian merchants, and accompanying it there had been a general growth ol the slave trade. I do not wish yon to Buppose that these two thinus were connected in the way of cause and elTcct, because 1 must say or Indinn merchants that as to their direct connection with the slave trade, I have round very little to their preju dice, and, Indeed, all tho great merchants are ire e rrom connection with tbe slave trade, although, by the possession or capital, which might be exchanged for human beings, they may have bad au Indirect connection. That was the siate of things as wo found it, and upon the subject of the slave trade I H'-ed not say more than what you know already. V ou are aware or the reeling on the subject in Kng larid, and I believe in India generally, that this trade must bo stopped. I have no doubt It will bo stopped very speedily, becauso things at both ends or Africa have changed greatly of late. All tho civilized countries ln the world, who used to be customers lor slaves, have now given the practice up. In another three years there will be a legal end put by government to tho slave trade In the Portuguese colonics, where that trade used to be general. Taen the government of Madagascar Is favorable, and I may say that this struck me as one oi the most favorable symp toms or improvement in that country. The gov ernment of Madagascar Is composed entirely or natives, and yet they have sot their laces against slavery, and declared Hiat It shall not exist in their country. At one or the ports in Madagascar we round an Arab nacoda In prison tor a year Tor carrying on the slave trade. Ike King or the Jo hauiias told us that his island should not be a place for harboring slaves, and that all people brought to ins territories as slaves should be set iree. On I lie Arabian coast I found there was the same dis position with reference to slaves who might bo brought to those lands that are under the political rule ol Colonel I'eliy. All the people in these places twld us they would set their laces against slavery, lherefore, I have no doubt that slavery upon its present scale, will cease shortly. At the same time there will remain lor many years to couie a desire on the part of ccrtam peopie to make money by trafficking in human flesh, and the attempt to do so will be made In spite oi all we mav do to prevent It. It Is in this respect that 1 think the gentlemen at present here, who are connected eitner as caste fellows or as countrymen wltn the merchants of East Africa, or at ail events those who hold the purse-strings, may do a deal of good work to assist the English government, ir you Inform your tnluds upon this sut'Ajct and read wnai is now on record in print regarding the slave trade, and set your faces against the traffic In the way that you would deal with any other great evil that coines belore yon or with uny general impedi ment to civilization, yon will act directly upon your countrymen who are carrying on this trade. You might be able to create a public opinion on tne subject which would greatly assist the public opinion of Englaud. 1 believe that in a few years jou wold mukt It A disgrace lor anybody c^h|i?y himself a Hindoo or a Mohammedan merchant to be even suspected of having anything to <Jo with tlila trade. I wlsli tiiat those among you who have leisure and power to lead the opinion of your coun trymen would come forward to assist that civili sation whlchJfnglaud la bent upou Introducing in Afrle*. The W<>vk will have its material as well as Its moral reward. The east coast of Africa is really magnificent. It is quite as line natnrally as yonr own Malabar out, abounding in tood harbor* and farllitics for trade Iteyohd anything 1 have ever seen. Hitherto the trade of this coast ha* been a sort of monopoly in the bands of people who in their way are ex tremely intelligent, because they have seen a good deal of the world and rubbed off a good innay prejudices. Upon ttie whole they are more actlvc men than their fellow countrymen hero, aud 1 ?ecU not nay (hat ihat is saying a great dealt for any merchant. I wish there were more classes of people engaged iu the trade, because I believe one of the chlel causes of our prosperity has been the great mixture of races in India. I may say that l did not see a Mingle I'arsee from one end of Africa to the other, cxceptlug in Mozambique, and I wish Parsees were more numerous. I have said that the present monopolizers 01 the trade are energetic men, but what, they chiefly require is a Utile ol modern education and civilization?cer- | tainly they ought to get some of the learning of i the West. In the diffusion of this Wild of knowl edge many or you here might do much good. Many of these merchant:! can. read Guzerathee If they can read nothing else, and I wish that, some 1 or the Ouzcrathee-speakiug gentlemen, who | are educated, would write information for thr,s? i peopre in that language. By tius means the I greatest good coald be accomplished. 'i!iere i Is now direct communication bv steamer from Aden, and I hope there will soon be the name from Houiuay and Arabia, so that It will uo longer be so ! difficult to communicate with these people that 1 they inuyt wait for about seven mouths before they I can communicate with Europe. I lore ee the time | thai thore will be grcator communication between i this couutry and tin; cast coast of Africa, and 1 I look upon it as u certainty that, you will be able in I one way or another, directly or indirectly, to do a great deal in mating Airlca as fi?o Irom the curse of slavery as India uow Is. Let me assure you, In coucluslou, that wliat you have heard ol the horrors or the slave trade is in no way exag gerated. We havo seeu so much of the horrors which were golug on that we can have uo doubt that what you read in books, wfilch are so often spoken ol as eontaitilng exaggerations, is exag gerated iu no respect, i'ho evil is much greater than anything you can conceive. Among the poorer class of Africans there is nothing like se curity irom lathers and mothers being put to death in order that their children may be captured, aud 1 may say that, every tenth person captured dies after his seizure. I cannot lose this opportunity of telling you what really very much concerns you? Urst oi all, that you have indirectly a great deal to do with the maintenance of the present state of things; mat It is greatly In your power to stop the t.rattle, and that tne suppression of such an evil Is one an worthy of you us of the combination ol all civilized nations. I hope to hear that my old iricnds in Hombay will do their part well, and I am sure that if the mailer is ouee placed before them in its true light they will not lie behind In their duty. | thank you all lor the patience with which you hnve listened to me, aud I hope that those of you who understand English will explain what I 1 have said to those wuo do not. (Loud applause.) The Hon. Munguldass Nathoobhoy said:?Gen tlemen?I think you all agree with me that our warmest thanks are due to sir Bartle Frere lor the very interesting and Important information which he has so kindly given us. I have no doubt that all my countrymen who have anything to do. either directly or Indirectly, with the slave trade In Zan zibar or Muscat will iollow the valuable advice which he has Just tendered us. (Applause.) His Excellency was then introduced to a number of native gentlemen, and alter a conversation with i a number of iricnds he took his departure amid the applause ol the gentlemen who had assembled U> meet him. Indian Opinion of the Failure of Sir Bartte Frerc's Mission. |Froin the Calcutta Englishman, May 2.1 With reference to the lallure of the Zanzibar mission the Tiineaof liutta states positively that Sir Bartle Frprc was prepared to d*al with and meet the financial elements of the diitlculty, but that the negotiations never reached the stage at which these would have come on for discussion. Our own impression is that the extent or p cuuutry compensation Sir lianie Frere was empowered to grant was strictly limited, aud that had the negotiations reached the stage In question they would have broken down, owing to the Insuffi ciency of the amount to compensate the Sultan liargash, whose entire revenue may be said prac tically to depond on the slave trade. EDUCATIONAL N0TE3. The abolishment of the system of teaching com plicated English analysis to young pupils Is again vigorously urged by prom uent Individuals. A change is also proposed in the plan of instructing youth in grooves fixed by the Hoard of Education. The varied requirements and capacities of scholars certainly demand some alteration in the present "course ot studies." The i'oard of Education pro pose new regulations, basing the number oi teach ers on the number ol pupils taught, which will operate well enough in the large grammar schools, but which will seriously impede the effi ciency oi some of the downtown schools. A lew porsoas were busy trying to liuve a clerk elected to the new Board. They evidently lorget that the clerk and other employes of the Educational De partmcut always continue In office uiitll the Hoard sees lit to dismiss them lor incompetency or neglect. Before a secretary could be elected, therefore, It would be necessary to expel the present incumbent, a thing which is not war ranted by his reputation and efficiency. There 18 no chance or succcess for the clique that are en deavoring to make a political machine of the Educa tional Department ol the city government. 80ICIDE BY SHOOTING. A Bookkeeper Tnki-ii Arms Against a Sea of Tionble*?OrNpoiideney the Cause of the Deed. Yesterday morning, at an early hour. Michael Thomas, a bookkeeper in the employ ol Mrs. ijuen zer, doing business at 65 avenuo C, while alone In the store shot Himself in the right temple w ith a re volver, which he had purchased, as Is sup posed, for that purpose, and was subsequently found lying dead on the floor, surrounded by a pool of blood, and a pistol lying beside him. Deceased bad been low-spirited in < onsoquende of falling to receive some money which he had been expecting Iroin friends in Germany, aud he was also quite desponuent because business in the sture was ho dull, although he had no pecuniary interest in it. In addition to the above causes, the health of Thomas was not good, and preferring death to liv ing under the discouraging state ol affairs by which lie was surrounded, he shot himself in such a man ner that death must almost instantly have ensued. Mr. Thomas, who was forty years of age and born in Germany, was a temperate, Industrious and worthy man. Deputy Coroner Marsh made an official examination or the body. Relatives from Hartford, Conn., will take charge of the remains lor interment. A FRENCH MURDER. A dreadfhl ease of murder has Just been tried be fore the Court of Assizes of the I'uy -de-DAme at Riom. it appears from the acre <f'accusation that at aboat seven o'clock on the morning ot tlio lltli or January some men proceeding to their work at the quarries of Tellhede round a man lying dead and bathed in blood at a shert distance from the village. These men immediately communicated the lact to the local authorities, and the body was recognized by the May> r to be that of one of the most honest inhabitants of his own commune, a drover named Marien t'oiuson. aged thirty-seven. The head of the victim was riddled with shot, the pockets had been turned inside out, and it was evi dent that, as he was the bearer of iroin twelve hundred to fourteen hundred Irnncs, the object of the crime was robbery. The victim, accompanied by ills two partners, left home at an early hour on the morning of the uth to attend the lair at Mont'errand, which was to take place on the following day. They disposed of their cattle nnd returned home on the evening of Friday, the loth. After stopping for a short time at Riom they took the road to Cam broude, and ob reaching a place called Davayat. Courson left his companions, and took a short way over country towards Tellhfcde. On reaching a de serted part of the road a man nam named Hebrard, a rarmer ,n the same commune, WHO, aware that his victim was possessed or a sum or money, bad lain in auibusli for a couple of hours, as soon as his victim came up fired two shots at him from a rifle point-blank. Deuth was instantaneous. When HCbrard, upon whom everything tended to fix the crime, was at first confronted with the produce of it, the rine with winch It was commuted and other irrefutable evidences of his culpability h" preserved the utmost coolness, and pretended that they had been hidden in his house by the real inarderer. Some days later, however, lie made certain ungaarded disclosures to the gen darmes, and afterwards made a rrce confession or the crime to the local magistrate, acknowledg ing, at the same time, that his victim had been Ids benefactor on several occasions, aud only a rew days before the crime nad paid a bill with which lie had been pressed by a]hiblicanof the village. The cool bravado wfth which he nui rated every in cident connected with Ins deeply-laid crime to the Court w as, the journals state, revolting. "When I wus sure that Conrson was dead," he said, "I went tin to him, examined his pockets, took everything Tie possessed and then went to a neighbor's, where I took two or three glasses of wine and smoked a cigarette." It la scarcely neenssary to say that little was added by the testimony of witnesses to a statement like this, and HObrard was found guilty, without extenuating circumstances, and sentenced to death. AI'stkian Finance.?The service which the Diet of l'esth rendered to the Austrlau government in approving of the modification ot the statutes of tho National Bank, with the object of dissipating the crisis at the Bourse of Vienna, has found Its rec ompense. M. de l'r?tls, Minister of Finance, has announced to the Hungarian government that on ills proposition the National Bank has decided to augment by four millions of florin* tho funds or the Feslh branch of tbi Institution.

Victor Emmanuel Is said to have bcon deeply sur priscd when he heard ihe news of Thiers' resigna tion. a very different spirit prevailed in the Vatican, where thes'3 violent changes were ex pected some time ago ami where still even greater changes aro expected wjth certainty. The ??Society for tho Promoton of Cat holla Interests' received soma time ago letters from France In which tho triumvirate and then the Presidency of Changamior were prophesied. '1 lie latter appears to have been the candidate supported by tho French Episcopacy. Vicomte do llamas lUewlse brought along with his pilgrims information to the above effect to the Vatican. Hut It is well known that the Vatican firmly hopes to seo France under the benign rule of Henri V,; so the lact that the Vatican rejoiccs la by no mcauy startling. From the Vatican there is little of general Inter est to report. It Is always necessary, however, to reiterate, on evory possible occasion, the fact that Ills Holiness Is pretty well in health, considering his ago, and that he Is as far convalescent as ever he will be. To a person In Roma who Is In the habit ot hearing daily from tho Vatican tho state oi the Pope's health, it Is annoying and even painful to read the startling despatches which ara continually sent off l'roin Ronio In regard to tho Holy Father's health. 1 have endeavored to op pose tucse reports as much as lay In my power; but * startling news of any description generally gets ahead. Eveu the CapiUile Is now silent on tho Pope's health, aud I am in hopes that the telegrams will in future take ou a better tone. Speaking ot the Capital), tho reception at tho Vatican yesterday was brought about by tho sins of this notorious sheet. Some time iigo It had the-audacity to pub lish, beneath the very noso of the Pope, a Life ol Jesus, lull of v ' BLASPHEMY, of one sort or another, thereby calling upon itself tho wrath of the Church; the sermons of the preachers were directed against it; and the coueeqncuce was that, the Capdnh- soon rejoiced In its Increased sales. Now comes the editor ol the UniM Cuttolica to Home, heading a deputation, and bringing with them for tho Pope au album containing somo thousands of addresses ol distinguished Italians, toother with a sum of money (said to bo ituo.ono li aucs) lor Peter's pence. The album is styled an altrum Ul rtparazione?lh&t Is, u reparation to God for the blasphemies of the CaplttW. litis is tu assure Ills Holiness that tho editors of the rjnihl CattoUca are still falMitnl to the cans -of thet'hurch. which nobody ever doubted.

Considering the matter in ltd personal aspect, we are Mill in clined to the view, however, that Vansittart and his clerical lilend.^ had tho right on thdr side when they assertod that they did uot commenco hostilities. nit: MBrr.ALs complained that. Vansittart and Antonelli and their Iriend "cut att tudes" ut. tliem. Metween service aud midday mass, it seems, the three younir men used up the short ttmo of ten minutes in smoking a cigar on the steps of the (iesa. previous to going tn to mass. Tney stood there locking as defiantly as any persou naturally would on heuing Ms political or religleus antagonists grouped about on the squure, but the* uniortuiiatcir "struck at titudes,'' and in various ways showed their disgust for their liberal toes, After mass when tne three young men sauntered out of church, they catne unexpectedly on the same crowd on the I'nuza Venezla, when, ii is i roved by many witnesses, among them two policemen, that the liberals were the llrst. to use insulting lan guage. Then the row, the details of which I need not repeat. Tho case m Court was pushed only against. three ol the liberals?Polldorl, Mppi and Fornari; and Lippi, being convicted ol striking and wounding \ amdttart, was fined. Antonelli did not apposr. The only annoying thing to young Vansittart is the reprimand of the Judge, who declared mat the provocation camo from the clerical warty. He spoke against the con duct of the preachers of the Oesu, who had done much to stir up party feeling by the violent char acter of their sermons. Two great events were announced for Home thin morning. Foriuuaiely the day ts a holiday in honor of one of the saints?St. Phtllpp, I believe? and the people showed themselves lu thousands on the streets to witness them?the eclipse aud tho arrtval of the Kiumess ol Russia. Tho partial eclipse, which was announced to commence hero at lorty-iour minutes alter eight and to be ended at thirty-eight minutes after ulue, wus unobserv aiilo to the nased eye. The next event ot the dav waa tho arilval of the Kxrr.Epg of arssu, an event which was announced tor half-past ten.. Vast military preparations had been made for Her reception, and at the time appointed halt the popu latlon of Homo lined tne streets from the Corso to the railroad d.-pot awaiting?a great disappoint ment. After being broiled and roasted hi the sun lor overan hour a telegram arrived saynm tiiat ouiy ut that moment had the Empress entered the car? at Clvlta Vecchta and that she would not arrive beloro hair-past twelve.

At last the Imperial barty arrived aud were received by Victor Emmanuel, the L'ron n Prince lluml?err, Princess MargheriU and other members of tho Italian royal family. A vast concourse of people lined tho streets all the way to the pulace of Hie ItiiMiuii Minister, on the corso (where the Empress will reside during her sojourn in Home), and gave tho Hussian visitors a sblemu welcome, for the Italians do not seem to bo in the habit of cheering, not eveu the King. The llrst carriage was occupied by ihe Empress and the Crand liuchess Marie ol ftiHfliu, the King awl the 1'rib eras of havojr.
