AMERICAN JOCKEY CUB. Fourth Day of the Spring Meet ing at Jerome Park. AN ELEGANT ATTENDANCE. "What Some Gentlemen Tliought About Shy lock and the Pound of Flesh. Ji Dialogue Between Maine and Hing land on the Riding for the Members' Cnp. FOUR CAPITAL RACES. Shylock the Winner of the Mile and a Quar ter Dash; Boss Tweed, of the Two-Mile Dash ; San ford, of the Members' Cup, and Springbok of the Mile Heats. The racing yesterday at Jerome Park waa very good and quite up to the standard of the preceding days, both in point of attendance and number of entries thai came to the post. Tuesday is what may be called an "off day," and 1b not a iavorite with the ladies, who prefer to keep their toilets for Buch races as the Westchester Cup, llelmont Stakes, iFordham and Jockey Club Haudlcap, Ac., when there is certain to be a large atteudance to admire them. The feelings of a lady wearing an elegant new costume, with no one to admire It, may be appropriately compared to those oi an ambitious 01SLT playing to empty benches. TOE DRIVE OIT yesterday waa pleasant, notwithstanding the beat of the sun, as the road was iree froai the Saturday rush, and dust was not so plentifully distributed. The gorgeous equipages of Shoddy land were happily absent, probably being bright ened and burnished up to shine again on some future occasion for the special admiration ot the coatermongera, bootblacks, newsboys and others of that tribe. There were comparatively few barouches on the road, the vehloles being chiefly confined to dog carts, buggies and sulkies, laden with men eagerly studying their betting and cal culating the stake they would laud should their favorites prove successful. THE PAKE looked as blooming as ever, with Its bright green foliage forming a refreshing change to the eye dazzled by the glare of the sidewalks and white ^taring ouildings of the city. Passing Mount St. 1 incent, the verandah was as usual occupied by some or the early birds, who prefer to start before noon and enjoy a quiet breakfast and cigar on the road. Alter crossing the Dam the dust became pretty thick, and the equipages tywlved within the taunting grounds of the *t,*> WATER OAXINS. This industrious band of youthlul Modocs own the road for about a mile beyond tne bridge, and raid successfully on all travellers with a terrific war whoop, sounding something like "sponge your borse," or "water your horse." It might be well, perhaps, if the government were to subsidize these youthful warriors to guard the highway against the attack* of other marauders of a like 11k. TUB CLUB HOUSE looked stately and handsome, perched up on the rising ground, with ir? verandah filled with the lamiiies and lrlends of the members. It was not crowded, but there was a tolerably large attend Bnce of the fair sex, and some oi the toilets were remarkably novel and elegant, one in particular, worn by a delicate bloude, was remarkably re thercM and chcL It consisted of a dark blue silK with a pale straw-colored polonaise of a gauzy fabric, looped up at the sides with knots of blue ribbon. A delicate little hat in the same colors set off this rather striking costume. THE STAK1) and quarter stretch had a very sporting appear ance. as tbc ladles' portion was lather sparely oc cupied and most of the males present bore faces familiar to those frequenting the race meetings of the season. The first event on the card, a "handi cap sweepstakes," was evidently considered no certainty lor any particular horse, as five dollar greenbacks were diopj>lni( into tiie boxes presided uver by the smiling cashiers at the s FRENCH POOL M AND, tike peas off a hoi platter. "Two on Conductor " click, click, pass on to the next; "Five on Shv lock," click, click, click, click, click, and soon was kept up steadily without intermission until three o'clock P. M.. when the starting bell brought speculation to a standstill and everybody rushed' %o the stand to see the race. In a couple of tnlnutes shylock and Sunrise rmh past the judges' ?Una so close that there is doubt who has won. THE CROWD gather round the judges' staud and a perfect Babel ensues, every one giving his opinion of the a1C8I1J u "Arah, what the devil is the matter? Didn't Funriae win by a neckr" ejaculated a Jolly lookiua ?on of the Kmerald isle. "Is It sunrise, yon blaguard, when I saw Shylock bate her by a head," responded a seconu. "Hegorran. f tnat'a so, the thieving rascal got thlrf?u flesh, this time anyuow," said a "Wdl you howld your whisht," replied the first speaker; -there's Daniel in the box above." This last sally brought a roar of laughter irom the bystanders, and half a mmute altervrards the Initiated might have read the answer in the lace oi the owner oi shylock, which lit up with a sunny ?mile as the blackboard was shoved over the ran bearing the cabalistic numbers ' 1 4 -2, wh ch translated read Shylock first, Sunrise second and conductor third. i he result was evidently satisfactory to the regu lar beitlug men, as they had bucked the winner, ss it h js all over. The second mce?dash of two miles?now began to attract attention, and when %1jc horses c.iine to the po^t tlic vcucmblo JtcDaniei, with his umbrella hoisted, was paring especial attentiou to two, cach mounted by one of Ins numerous tribe, clad in the well known blue JacketMred cap and sasn. "I'll KYH'l oik" buist from a thousand voices, and the five starters tore round the track in a cloud ol dust past the I Btand, and round again they came, when, mid the yells "i he Boss wins" the McDamel colors shot by the staud. and lioss Tweed was declared tne win ter of the race. The Members' Cup, the next event on the list, was evidently, in the eyes of the fair sex, the great t'vent of the meeting, and as the horses were led out to be saddled there was mi un? usual fluttering of fans and raising of lorg nettes on the club house verandah. The Kentlcinen jo-cks were soon stripped ol 2^?ir 'W't overcoats, and daz/.ied the beholders Witn the gloss of their silk, the whiteness of their leathers ami the polish on their boots. Awav they went, accompanied by a tremendous flutter ol lace Jiaudkercliicirt from the club house and clouded in dust they tore round the corner aud in through the betwee "Se l? l'1C '?"K ,orn' The race lay MR. CLASON and Mr. n.mnatync, and wa* finally won cleverly l>y the former. ' standing In the ladies' quurter of the Grand Btand, the writer overheard the following rather amusing conversation. There was a party mttinir In front, rotislsting of a middle-aged irentleinaii and lady, evidently natives of HOLD HIGHLAND, accompanied by two rather pretty young girls ' wuo spoke with anaeceni rather resembling some thing coumig irom a state called Maine. The con versation was as foUows Yoi'No Lady?Ob, dear! how pretty they look in their horses0 aDtl h0W l>e'iUt^uUJr t,le^ ride Uintlkman (rather contemptuously)? Ride, Fanny.

TBI CABBIAOBS now rolled up to tbe club house and stand. and alter receiving tbelr i reignt were noon lost la tbe dust homeward bound. On the whole those pres ent had a very enjoyable day. as, without being pestered by a crowd, they witnessed a good day's sport THE KACIHG. The track was (Bat, yet heavy In dnst, of which at times clouds arose which enveloped the horses and hid them from the gaaers at the most critical parts of the contests. The racing, as a whole, waa most excellent, and much admired by those who were in attendance. There was not as numerous a con gregation as there has been on other daga of the meeting, nor were the fields as toll; yet, as we sail before, the racing was good and the spectators were satisfied, which was all that could be desired by the managers. Pour events were on tne card, and they came oflT promptly. The first race was a dask of a nine and a quarter, the second a two mile dash, the third a members' race of a mile and furlong, and the lourth a mile heat race, In whloh the fastest time ever made at Jerome Park waa re corded. A match that was not on the card waa settled by a forfeit. It was between Mr. J. 0. Hare's bay colt Aerolite, by Asteroid, dam Edith, and E. 8. Rogers' bay colt John Preston, by Master Llghtfoot, dam Ringdove, both three year olds, to carry ioo pounds. Mr. Rogers paid forfeit to Mr. Hare. The first race that came off was a handicap sweepstakes for all ages, $50 each, half forfeit, and only $10 it declared, with $590 added, one mile and a quarter. For this event there were three start ers, consisting of J. O. K. Laurence's bay colt Shy lock, by Lexington, dam Edith, 4 years old, carrying ioo lbs.; W. M. Conner's bay filly Sun rise, by Planet, dam Cltima, 3 years old. 87 lbs., and W. R. Babcock's bay horse Conductor, by Australian, dam Nettle Vlley, 5 .vears old, carrying 107 lbs. Sunrise had the call in the betting in the early part of the pool selling, but just before the start Shylock was the favorite, Sunrise second choice, Conductor selling at a very low figure, nis owuer backed him under the belief that if the horse did not break down in the race he would win It. Conductor did break down, and, of course, was beaten. The contest between the three horses, belore Conductor'a leg gave way, was one ol the closest contests that was ever seen, and, when he J retired, Shylock and the filly kept up the doubt of which was best until they passed under the wire, when it was decided that Shy1ock had tj1* race toy a short head. The winner has the appear ance of a race horse, and, but for a lretful disposi tion when being prepared for a race, would run much better and win oitener. He may become more steady with time and experience and be a profit, to Ills owner. Sunrise Is a very protty filly and runs well. She would have made a better fin ish. probably, had she not been crowded Into the fence, as she waa running home, by Shylock. we do not mean to say that she was fouled, but we do say that she ought to have had more room. As the judges did not notice the affair, we have nothing further to say. , The second race was for a purso for all ages, en trance money to second horse, the conditions of the race being allowances Tor low prices, as will be seen below; a two mile dash. There were five Htarters for this race. These were p. McDanlel A Co.'s brown colt Boss Tweed, by Asteroid, dam Alabama, lour years old, carrying 100 lbs.; Rice A McCormlck's bay mare Bessie Lee, by Hunter's Lexington, dam by Chorister, four years old, 100 lbs.; D. McDanlel A Co.'s bay lllly Sue Rvder, bv Knight of St. George, dam Olycera, Tour years old, 97 lbs.; M. A. Llttell's bay mare Winesap, bv Vandyke, dam Nina, live years old, 103 lbs., and W. R. Babcock'a chestnut filly Ethal Sprague, by Jack Malone, dam Vesperllght, four years old, ?7 11)8 Rice A McCormlck's entry had the call in the betting, McDanlel's entries being second choice, Winesap and Ethel Sprague selling for nominal prices. Sue Ryder cut out the work at the start and ran ahead for a mile and a half, but when she went around the hill she crowded Bessie Lee into the fence and the latter was oat In consequence, but not seriously injured. Sue Ryder, by the collision, was knocked out of her stride and retired. Boss Tweed then made a dash and soon took Sue's place and showed the way home, winning a good ra.ee In a gallant manner. Bessie Lee was second, Sue Ryder third. A irreat denl or money was lost by the Southern delegation on this race. The third event of the day was a race by seven membeis of the American Jockey Club. These were Messrs. L. Hart, who rode chestnut gelding Sorrel Dan, by Revenue, dam unkuown, aged, carrying 146 lbs., colors black, canary hoop and cap; E. Saniord, who rode chestnut gelding Cadence, by Censor, daiu Rachel Dawson, five years old, carry ins 143 lbs.; colors, brown; A. Clason, who rode chestnut horse Hanford, by Uncle Vic, dam Dolly Carter, aged, 152 lbs.; colors, brown, pink sleeves and cup; A. li. l'urdy, who rode bay gelding Mas cub, by Prophet, dam Jessie Dixon, five years old, 140 lbs.; colors, pink, black cap; D. J. Bannatyne, who rode chestnut horse Stockwood, by Asteroid, <laoi Alabama, live years old, 157 lbs.; colors, pur ple, with straw hoop, and ltobort Center, who rode nay colt Victor, by Uncle Vic, dam by Scythian, four years old, 140 lbs.; colors, brown, blue sleeves, brown and blue cap. The dresses oi the gentlemen jockeys were very beautiful. Bannatyne and his horse Stockwood were the lavorltes at nearly even money over the Held. He was beaten, however, bjr Mr. Clason and saniord, after the best members' race that ever took place at Jerome Park. Stock wood was second, Victor third. The fourth race was mile heata, between D. McDaniel A Co.'s chestnut colt Springbok, by Australian, dam Hester, by Lexington, three years old; Buckley A Tully's bay colt Buckden, by Lord Cliideu, dam Consequence, four years old, and M. H. Sanford's bay colt Mildew, by Lexington, dam Mildred, lour years old. Springbok won the first beat In ham! In l:45H, and In the second heat he distanced both the other horses in 1:44*. which Is the fastest tlmo ever made at Jerome Park. This is a grand colt, and the great struggle between Springbok and Tom Bowling will be the great event of the year. Thev are both entered in the Jersey Derby, and should they run the excitement attending the contest will equal that between Harry Bassctt and Longfellow ol last year. The following are the details ol the various racing events as they came off:?

Shylocx ran up and took sides with sunrise at the three quarter pole, and conductor began to fall off, having struck lame some time before.

The attendance, considering the many counter attractions elsewhere, was very satisfac tory, and a creditable endorsement of the manner in wh.ch the track is managed nnder the superintendence or Mr. William McMahon Artcr the horses had come upon the track it was found that A. L. Rogers nad substituted the black gelding Kastern Star for his entry of the black stal lion New Hampshire, and as Kastern Star had this season before started In a 2:40 race on Deerfoot he was properly ruled out and not allowed to start. In the pools before the first heat Lvman was the favorite, even against the field. Harry won the first heat In 2:46 s, but notwithstanding this Lym.m continued to have the call, and at times sold lor $36, while the Held brought only $8. Ly man scored the second, third and fourth heats without much difficulty, thus winning the race Nellie and Kate were distanced In the first heat Klpp In the second, and Harry and Andrew in the fourth.

The weather was line, and although the sun's rays were Intensely hot, a re freshing Dreeae came through the valley, which greatly added to the comfort of the large assem blage In attendance. The race appointed for to-day was for horses tnat had never beaten three minutes; best three in five, for a parse of $1,260. There were ten en tries and six starters, aa follows Rody Patterson, or Pittsburg, entered Toledo Boy; Tipton Brothers, of Cadiz, Ohio, brought for ward Belle Brasfleld: T. W. Clark, of Pittsburg, entered East End, and W. H. Orawlord, or Morrls lana, N. Y., trotted out Nellie; M. Floyd, or Pitts burg, entered Perry, and J. Knox, of Pittsburg, brought Addle to the pole. East End, In the pool rooms, last night, was the favorite; but on the course to-day the choice seemed to be with Nellie, who, lor some reason or other, 6old high above tho balance of the animals. . . . First HeaL? The horses got off In a bunch; but at the quarter pole Toledo Boy drew to the lead, which ne maintained to the three-quarter pole. Here he was passed by Addle, who had been acting badly. Bnnning on the homestretch the driver ol Perry took cramps in nls arms, and. being unable to bold hlB horse in, the animal ran off, throwing the driver Irom the sulky on to the track. The man was not seriously Injured, and the horse, atter running into the Held beyond the track was caught* This hoat was given to Eaat End, Nellie coming in second, Toledo Boy third, Beile lourth, Addle tilth and Perry distanced. Time, 2:41. Second Heat.? This opened with East End taking the lead, and on the backstretch there were the Ave horses all In a buncn. At the three-quarter pole Kast End drew away from Nellie and Toledo Bov, who were desperately Birtving for second place. East End came down the homestretch trotting beautifully, and passed the score, amid loud cheering, one length ahead or Nellie and two lengths In advance of Toledo Boy, Addle making a good lourth. Time, 2:40. . . Third Heat.?In this heat, Toledo Boy at the start went to the head gallantly, and the pace or all the horses up the backstretcti was terrific. The Boy and Addle to the three-quarter pole were nose aud nose, but the pace was too rapid, and at this point both horses broke up. East End, who previ ously had beliaved badly, now settled down to work and passed Toledo Boy In entering the homestretch and won the heat In 2:40>{. To-morrow tnere will be two races. One Is the 2:27 event ror a purse of $1,600, and the second race is for douoie teams. HtTMMART.

The object of this communication is to acknowledge the receipt of your circular Inviting the regiments ol the National Guard of the State of New \ork to send repre sentatives to Creedmoor on the list Inst., to compete for tho nrizee offered by the National Kltle Association. The proposed acceptance of your Invitation has developed a difference of opinion among the officer* and members of this regiment as to the policy anil propriety of engaging in any contests or trials ol" skill lor the championship, or in any competition for prizes ol money or othor valuable articles. Cntll there Is entire harmony in this regi ment upon the sublect. it does not seem to T>o advisable that It should be ofllciaily represented in any competitive contest at Creedmoor. Individual oftlcers and members, us well as the several companies ol this regiment are, of course, at liberty to lake such action in respect to the matches at Creedmoor as they may deem "VSe objections to engaging in the proposed contests for prizes are briefly as loltows:? That young men who engage In contests lor prises are tempted to neglect their business pursuits in order to prepare themselves lor such contests, and un less in Independent circumstances their business pros pects are liable to material Injury. S'Ctmd?That trials ot skill for prizes are likely to so en gro?s tho time and energies ol those engaged that they will entirely neglect their military duties. Kor the tact cannot be overlooked, that good ?*r*manshlp Is one ol the necessary accomplishments ol the Midler, and that the thoroughly drilled and disciplined battel.ons must always be relied upon, In the hour of dsnger, by those who expect from the National Guard protection to lUe and property in this city. , . , Third?That the military organization of Ibe Stale should not lie made s nursery lor the encouragement ol sporting propensities; but that tPose who have the time and Inclination to compete for a prize or a championship, or the means to indulge In the wagers which inevitably attend such contests, can tlnd ample op portunities to gratify their tastes in the popular sporrs of th?ouriA-That no doubtful expedients are nccessap to encourage the young men ol the National Guard In he pracitcal use of the rifle, and that without the extraor dinary silmulus proposed they will devote all the tl.ue they can reasonable afford to this Inaelafalo purpooo.

THE COLLEGE REGATTA. In tor-Collegiate Boating Contort* intk* Oil ted JNStes. Amngemeftti ftr tfce Cmt Aquatic Test ia Springfield Jely 17. THE CORNELL NAVY. Names and Condition of tho Crow on Lake Cayuga. BONE AND SINEW IN THE AMATEUR BANKS. Ithaoa, N. Y., June 14, 1873. It la doubtful If good old Dr. Arnold, or Rugby, ever fully realized the important part that boating was destined to play in collegiate training when he struggled to Introduce aquatic sports into his own college, as an addition to the four courses practised by the ancient Hellenic races. Physicians raged and paterfamilias dwelt upon the horrors or sudden death from exhaustion or heart disease. The idea was denounced; the practice regarded aa degrading, demoralizing and a bar to successful study. But the results differed rrom the prognosti cations or the conservative old gentlemen who hovered over the national universities, and it may be said that, from the day or its inception up to the present moment, boating, as an auxiliary, In train ing students, has been completely successrul. From 1829, when the scions ol British nobility from Ox ford and the Cam first met on the dirty waters of the Thames to contest for aquatic honors there are but few cases or injury on record arising rrom ex cessive practice. Euglisli and Irish universities finally came to regard the pastime as a part ol the legitimate "course" of a student, and for many years enjoyed the reputation of being able to "lick all creation." ENTERS AMERICA. In due time, however, the United States put in her claim to a share of the honors. Quietly our leading educational institutions encouraged stu dents to take up the oar, and, before long, a generous rivalry arose between the various Atlantic States. Clubs suddenly sprung up in the several colleges, and contests were fought that tended to develop and per fect the art of rowing. Harvard claims to have started the first club, in 1843. In 1S44 "Yale Navy" came Into existence. Eight years afterward Yale, conscious of the great progress she had made, sent her rival, Harvard, a formal challenge, alter the rashion of the sister institutions or Oxford and Cambridge. Harvard's acceptance led to the first test or the superiority of the oarsmen of two American colleges, over a two-mile stralght-away course, the race taking place on Lake Winnlpiseo gee, August, 1852, when the Magentas or Harvard came In ahead by two lengths or their elght-oared barge. The latter college was also victorious over Yale at Springfield In 1855. Three years later she originated the brilliant idea of an annual inter collegiate regatta, to be inaugurated be tween the undergraduates ol the colleges or New England and New York city, the programme being that none but academical under graduates, the graduating class Included, should participate, the course to be three miles, and that the crews could dispense with coxswains ir they desired, in July, M9, the first inter collegiate regatta was rowed on the Quinalgamond, Worcester, Mass, over a course ol a mile and a half and return, Harvard beating Yale and Brown, and com ing in first, In 19m. 18s. Thus were the ?? union" regattas inaugurated. In view of the great event in the history of oarsmanship to come off next month. I have merely repeated the foregoing to show the result achieved by the earlier competitors In tho sport. De tails of the varied lortnnes or Yale and Harvard from 1864 to 186S, in New England waters, and the defeat of the latter In the four-oared match with Oxiord in 1869, are too fresh in the memories of most Herald readers to require repetition. In 1871 the "Rowing Association of American Col leges" was organized. At the contest in this year the Amherst Agricultural College carried off the palm in a three-mile stralght-away course at Inglc hlile, Mass.. In 16m. 40>iS. The contest ori872 at the same place and over the same course resulted In a victory lor the "Aggies," who surprised every body by their splendid style and execution. Dur ing the twenty years. of generous rlvalrv in the manly, healthful art or oarsmanship, dating trom 1852, Harvard has won at nine regattas, l'ale at two, and the Agricultural at two. CLAIMS OP CORNELL UNIVERSITY. Up to 1872 New York State had never Deen fairlv represented in the college regattas. At tne meet ing of the association in April last, however, Cornell University declared her determination to send a crew to Springfield. For a young institution this was considered a bold step, but the enterprising young men of this classic neighborhood have already raised or will shortly have raised the sum oi $l,ooo, and therefore will keep their promise. To the experienced men of Harvard and Vale it will probably seem almost suicidal on the part of the young navy of Cornell to enter into a contest with the nine or eleven rival Institutions that have signified their Intention or participating. THEIR MEN AND FACILITIES. Now let me explain how the ithacans came to claim this aa a matter of justice. In the Cornell University there aro nearly five hundred students. During the past three years several boat clubs have been started, which form together a navy numbering ta the aggregate afeiut one hundred and sixty. The mode of lite or many of the young men, belore entering the college, fits thein in the most eminent sense for aquatic sports. Some have been bred aa carpeuters, others as farmers, while large numbera have periormed manual labor in the iron founding and mechanical engineers' establish ments of the country. Cornell's idea was to adapt this institution to the necessities of that large class ol practical and struggling students who would have to depend upon their skill or skilled labor for their bread alter leaving the mstltntion bearing his name, and a glance at the rank and file in the college readily confirms the Impression that his de sires In this respect have been faithfully executed. There are exceptions, of course?instances where the yonng graduate will leave the delightful hills and valleys or Ithaca to roam over the world at leisure, or to fill eminent positions at the legal bar or in the pulpit, sustained in the meantime by kind friends with plethoric purses. Hut the departments of agriculture, of civil engineering, of architecture and practical mechanics, where there are practical farmers, architects and engineers, lathes and ma chinery tor dealing wltn Iron and oil as real and greasy ns any to lie found In the establishments on tho East River, lead to Uie conclusion that bono and sinew have to be developed here as well as brain. The most important feature, next to tho men, la the fncl lty for practising boating. In this reaped 1 think they have immense advantage-, llcre, nes led between lo ely slopes, varying in height iroin 50 reel to 200 leet, lies the placid Lake Cavnga. As seen Irom the eminence on which the college buildings stand, it has the appearance of a vast, magnificent sheet of glass, always within tne range or the students' vision, sparkling In the Bunshine as though dotted over with costly bril liants. It is lorty miles in length, live miles wide in some parts, having an average width of anout two and a half miles. Being within twenty minutes' distance of the college the stuUciiM can readily approach it and consequently it is largely patronized by them for rowing. To the romantic and delicate it has other inarms. In scanning Its expa se they can compare It to Klllarney. Windermere, Como. and, pronably, mentally arrange the occasion wnen the next set tiement or our difficulties with Canada shall be effected at this Geneva of Western New Vork, when the great chiefs of international law shall seize upon Clinton House and convert It into a court bouse. rn| universttt crkw of 1873. With men of the calibre I have described and the above faculties it will acarcely be surprising to hear that the Cornell navy is now training a crew that will probabl? astonish many old boatmen next month. Henry Coulter, or Pittsburg, Is training them, and the automaton-like action they have already acquired is remarkable. The crew Is formed of seven (including the alternate) or the best tried men or the navy, and Is made up as fol I "yrrst?C. 8. Dutton, stroke; age, 25; height. B fact 11 incbea; weight, 180 pounds.

The others are firm and as steady In the boat as though they had been training ler several months. When the word was given they started down the lake in line stvle, making about forty strokes per minute, and continued at that as far as could be discerned from our point of ob servation until the turn, which was made in about 6:40. returning home in about 5:36. A NSW 81X-OARED SHBLU A few days since President White addressed the students on the evils of beer blinking "{* selling on the day of the race at Springfield, and promised that If they would abstain from intoxt cating beverages and refnse to gamble he would present the University crew with a new shell for the regatta. The required resolution was soen adopted, and immediately an order for a handsome six oared shell was despatched to Blakev, of Bos ton, which the crew expect to have ready 'or the time trials on the Connecticut River, where they will commence on or about June 28. STYLE OF STROKE. Coulter appears to have given them the New castle reach." Their present style is pecnllarly English?the length of stroke Immense, while the return is quick and certain. They will be accom panied to Massachusetts by Mr. Freese, the Com modore elcct for 1873-4. Mr. Cluck and several other prominent amatenrs. The average of the crew is twenty-three, average height Ave leet rnn* inches, and average weight 16# pounds. TOM HUGHS8 AND CLUCK CUPS. Mr. Thomas Hughes, M. P., of England, has jus* presented the club (Tom Hughes') named after him In the university with a splendid silver cup, formerly in the gilt of the Nineteenth Middlesex Rifle corps of London. The cup is to be annually contested for, and la worth about $200. Mr. James Fraser Cluck, one of the editors of the college paper, has also ordered a splendid New T^ork, to be rowed 'or annually. The cup is to be egg-shaped, elaborately engraved, and will be worth about $350. ?? DISPENSING WITH PROFESSIONAL TRAINERS. In concluding mv letter 1 will mention that at the last Worcester Convention the Cornell delegate Introduced and carried a resolution to ttie cuec* that. "after this year, no college shall employ any professional trainer or coach, and that all trainers or coaches must be graduate or undergraduate members of the college which they shall represent." Thus, after this season, the prolesslonal occupar UThe^unlforui0of' the Cornell crew will be dark blue pants, with blue shirt, having the letters "C. U." worked on the breast In pink, while their colors will be cornelian and white. The race be tween the University crews Is to be over the three mile straightaway course of 1872, In slx-oared sheila.

At the Coroner's Ofllce, In East Houston street, yesterday, Coroner Young held an Inquest in the case of Mrs. Susan O'Neill, who It was suspected had been killed on the morning of the 12th Inst., by being thrown from a fourth story window of their aDartment, In the tenement houso 423 East Eighteenth street, by her husband, Francis O'Neill. The testimony snowed that there was a drunken party in the room of deceased the night previous to her death, and they caroused till near daylight. Two or three wit nesses made oath to seeing deceased deliberately climb out the window, and, alter hanging by her hands to the sill ior a few seconds, let go and fell to the yard. Deceased and her husband had been quarrelling a few minutes previous to the fatal fall, during which, it is alleged, he struck her with ? stick, which he held In one of his hands. Deputy Coroner Marsh, who made a post-mortem exami nation, testified that compression of the brain was the causo of death. The jury found that deceased voluntarily fell from the window, and thereupon Messrs. Howe A Hummel, who appeared as counsel for O'Neill, moved for his discharge, which waa granted by Coroner Yonng. O'Neill said ho_ In Tended to labor hard to support hlmsell and child. The latter Is now In charge of the Sisters of Mercy. THE 8TEEBAQE PASSAGE. New York, June 17,1873.
