The great question now is whether there Is any horse j likely to beat Petrarch for the Derby. After an ex hibition of form which cannot be characterised aa other than the most brilliant, It woold be idle indeed not to say that lew horses appear to have had better . chances of adding the Epsom laurels to their New market wreath*. Cai-t in a mould winch for syoarne I try aud muscular development alone stamps him aa a I perfect race horse, th? invaluable record of his Two . Thousand Guineas victory stands out aa an incompara ble additiou to his other merits. At the same time i' Petrarch will meet Iroah and auportor opponents in the Derby to thoae bo vanquished over the Itowley Mile, notable among them bolng the Mineral colt, All ; Heart, Forerunner aad Skylark. So impressed, how I ever, are both layers and backers with the abilities of !< Petrarch and bis prospeots of winning the Derby, that wheroas the loriuer body are shy of laying moro than 6 to 4. the latter are content to take any extension of odds behind that old established holder's war ory. : There must be a lot of covering money in the market lor Petrarch in addition to that which his admirers i will put on "at any price," so that unless something i uul'oroseen happens 1 question if ever his market ! status will be doproclated up to the fall of the flag. At j the same time, as "sowoihtng unforeseen" befell him prior to the Two Thousand, so there may yet be , i troubled waters in his course bolore he will sail into I ? the peacetul stream allotted to all Derby winners. In the lace of Petrarch the Miueral colt is backed i I with an amount of Ireedom which plainly nvldonces \ I that confluence in the unnamed one's abilities to de 1 feat the great '-crack" Is by no means abatod; lor, not ! withstanding the tremendous rush of Petrarch to 7 to I 4, no correspondingly retrogressive movement Is ! associated wuh the Mineral colt. Both to-day ; and yestordnjt 100 to 16 was readily tskeu : about the son of Buccaneer, and at Tatters all's , on Monday so great was the furore in his favor ! that just before iho close of business he was bjtcked to ; , win some thousands ol pounds at the odds I have men- ' tioiied. Lost year the Mineral colt and Petrarch were the j j two-year-o4d heroes of tue back-end, and although the ? I Mineral coll Unlsbod behind the Two Thousand Guineas 1 hero in the Middle Park Plate, 1 believe he lost so j ; much start that his deieat was quite excusable. Iu j i the Dewbum Plate, however, he quite atoned for his ; i Middle Park dereat, and beat a good Held over seven ; furlongs, which stamped him as a ruco horse and a stayer. Many of the best judges are still us fond or tkei Mineral oolt as ever, and there will bo no lack of "tal ent" behind the Hungarian ready to vow by his prowess over the Epsom rnllo and a halt That Petrarch will j have something far moro difficult to beat in tho Mln- i eral colt than he had in the Two Thousand is certain, ! j and to All Heart 1 may apply the same qualification, j All Heart may, of course, upset all calculations I i on the argument which has throughout induced ! : mo to regard him as likely to make a high | class three-year-old. Tho running of Father I Claret in tbo Two Thousand Guinoas may not be of i much moment, as the colt was not greatly lancied, ! odds of 20 to 1 being laid against hint at the start. ' With this exception, Lord Kosebery's stable hss shown , great form this season, and thore is an abundanco of i trying tackle at llsloy to gauge the Derby chance of the ! hall brother of Doncaster. The match between Con troversy and Kaleidoscope will be decided next week, and if the old horse can polish off the young one Lord Kosebery would have ait additional guide to judge of the Derby prospects of his much-improved chestnut oolt. Meanwhile, submitting humbly, as evory one ex cept the tuost prejudiced must, to the immensity of the claims or Petrarch, 1 yet do not feol inclined to desert my long-selected, and I hope trusty champion, All Heart With such recent precedents. Indeed, as George Frederick and Doncaster before one, It would be hasty to change from au old love to a now without amplo and lncont*atible roason. Again, on the 13th, the same writer thus briefly ro fen to the race and some of the candidates:? The furore in favor or Petrarcn for the Derby shows bo abatement. The contrary, indeed, seems to be the case, the short odds of i to 4 being taken in hun dreds yesterday, and there seems every probability that John Dawson will train and John Morris rale the winner of the blue ribbon of the tori for two succes sive years. I should be inclined, however, to wait ? little longer bo lore talcing such short odds against fresh tackle. Meanwhile, the Mineral colt is firm at 6 to 1, and the very iorward advance mode by l'o trarch ban not detrimentally affected the position of the unnamed son of liuccsneer, oi whom, as i have before stated, many ol the best Jadgea at Newmarket aio es pecially torn! With Julius Cwsar und Forerunner Rob ert feck is bound to be dangsrous, for probably Julius (Jtesar may be better on the Derby Day, while, if Fore runner is the superior of the pair, there may be a chance of lowering the colors of Petrarch. At the same time, there is no getting away from the lact that Petrarch was certainly as back ward In condition as anything in the Two Tnousand Uuiueis, and y<X defeated Julius Cwst r in a canter. There is a rumor afloat to the eflcct tbat Petrarch may again change hands before the Derby; bat under any circuiiibUincea 1 question if he would leave the Warren House stable^ Forerunner Is the betier favorite of the Ilusbley pair, no more thau 1,0W) toflo being procurable, while .'0 to 1 ttnds takers aboui Julius Ctesar All lioart remains lairly firm at 0 to 1, aud it may be that when seen ou tlie day ho will oven improvo on this qnotat'on, unless anything happens to impair his chance in the meantime. The French horse, Brecon nier, bn? como Into notice at 40 to 1; but, as it wai currently siaiod that he wsa inferior to M. de Fligny bet 're tbe Two Thousand, something raoro satisfactory must be ascertained ol his abilities be lore be can bo ?aid to have formidable Derby proeperis. POLO. THB BJC8T OAMES OF TBI SIABOX? LOBD M1M DEVILLK'b SID* THE WXHXXB. The polo players bad a delightful day yesterday, aad quite a large crowd of visitors ware present daring tbe games. Colonel Jay and Mr. W. P. Dong las both drove their coaCbos out, each carrying a large party of ladios and gentlemen. A slightly different arrangement had been made in tbe disposal of tbe ponies. Yesterday they were grouped behind the marquee at the northern end of the grouud, which was used as a dressing tent for the players. Tbe coaches were drswn up under the shade or the trees at tbe southern end of the grounds, and several other carriages, containing friends of the players, were also inside the grounds, occupylou a like position. The snn was very hot, but there was a gentle brecso, sofflc.ent to cool the air so tbe woatber was tolerably pleas ant. A number of now ponies, French Canadians, were groaped in among tbe Mexicans. Tbese had been sent by Lord Jlandovllle to try, but tbey appeared a trifle too big for the work. While waiting for the ar rival of tbe rest of the players tha following gentle men played a couple ol games:? Mr. W. Oray. Mr. Bennett, Mr. C. Frsncklyn, Mr. J. Mott, Mr. A. Jay, Mr. 8. 8. Rowland, Mr. J Kane. Mr. F. Qriawoid. riKST wans. There wero now quite a number of spectators on the grounds, including a s roug gstheiing of tbe boys, comlortabiy located on the walls and fences surround ing th.e Pitrk. A* soon us the players got to work the spectators evinced a very derided interest In tbe game, and tbo mflereot manoeuvres of tbe player* received their shore or applause, four on a siue makes a very proity game, as there are not to msur jams wbers ponies and men all get crowded up together, and it is nearly impossible to move a inailet, let siono hit a ball. Alter ?oms rather pretty play, in which Mr. Uowland and Mr. Urixwold exhibited a marked im provement in their *tyie of play, Ibe ball was carried over to Mr. Thome* goal, and ine flrst gams scored lor Mr. Honnctt's side. oaux The players as usual obangtd ko?Is at the ooncinslon of the first game and w?rd Mandsville, who had arrived during the play, took tbo position <>i umpire, aud toss ing tbe ball in the air gave iliem the word ?'go. '1 The ponies were all iresB and both aides charged at a rat tling gslt, but the players tailing to strike wbile on the dead run tiiere was a general rush atound the ball and for hall a minute a scene ol wild contusion ensued tbat was Unaily ended bjr a clever hit driving tbe ball in the direction ol Mr. Kraiieklyo'H goal. Home lively piny em<pe<i In Iront or the goal and then the reds, Mr. Kr.uickiyn's side, made u brilliant rush and carried tbe lutU to the other end of I he grounds lieblud the goal, hut not between tbe poets, so it had to be hit out and the light resumed. Alter some good play on both sides I he ball was again earned hack by the bines to within a tow teet ol their opponents' goal, but the rods were stubborn aud by close play saved tbe victory, and. flu?!ied on the lids of success, made a charge, carrying the bsll along with them, and by a lucky hit that m?de the hull < urrom of! ona the goal poms and then imiss between, won tho game sBd ten the store one and one. third asm. A rest of a few minutes here took plaos pending a change of odas, and after some discussion It ?u de elded U> pick sidea, aa the players Id red shirts were de cidedly strouger than tboaa in blue. A number or the ladies bad got down from the coachea and were bow seated on campstoels In front of the marqaee at lha ?outhern end ol tbo grounds. where (be* enjoyed ? pleasant shade and ? good tmw. The following reda were selected:? Mr. Howland Robbina, Lord Mandeville, Mr. Purdy, Mr. V. Grin wold, Mr. J. Kane, Colonel Joy. Mr. W Thorn*, Mr. J. Mott, Mr. A. Jay. Mr. A. d Howland. Wbon the player* were ranged In front of thalr goal* the umpire, Mr. Bennett, gave the word and tbey started for the ball. There ware now Ave player* on each aide and every one took an active part in the game. Mr. Howland Knbbina bad hard work to nold bia ground against the aide led by Lord Maodeville and Colonel Jay, but be bad an able aaeistant m Mr. John Kane wbo la improving vory rapidly and becoming quite an expert at the game. There ta considerable uifferenoe in the play now to what It waa when the Aral practice gamea were oomtneuced, aa there la more rldiog and hitting and not so many scramble#, In which pony lega and malleu get mixed up la lodeacribabie j confusion. Lord Mandovllle'a side had the beat of the j game throughout, altb jogh Mr. Purdy at one time got . a lair start and in three strlkea carried the bail pretty 1 close to Lord Manduville't goal. Alter about fifteen mmutoa' play the light centred la front of Mr. Rot*- j bias'goal, and a clever bit by Mr. Howland finished 1 the game and scored the first victory for Lord Manda vtilo's aide. FOfTHTH QAX*. The aame aide* played tb* next game, with the ex ception of one change, Mr. Douglas taking Mr. (iris wold'* place. On the charge thiee players missed, and then Colonel Jay auooeeded in starling the ball and the play lairly commenced. The game waa very snort, for after a sharp contest In the centre of the field the Mnu deville party carried the ball up to Mr. Bobbin*' goal and t>y a clover hit decided tbo game, making the soore stand 3 for Lord Mandevtlle. Some twenty or thirty carriages had arrived during the play, and were driving np and down tho road ouiaide the ground*. rtrrn oaks. Mr. Grtawold officiated as*umpire and Mr. Bennett took hla place on l-ord Mandovllle'a side, wblle Mr. Frsuicklyn Hilud the vacancy made by Mr. Thome re tiring from Mr. Robblus' party. Aa soon aa they were given the word "go," there waa a general ruah for the ball and a hot fight ensued, but tho Mandeville party were decidedly too strong, aa notwithstanding acme very brilliant play on tue part of Mr. Rabbins the Mandeville aide scored a third goal. Tho umpire waa called upon to decide rather a eloee point In reference to thia game, as the ball was hit be tween the goala and striking Mr. Francklyn's pony bounded back outside. Mr. Uriswold, however, very properly decided It a game, u the boll had passed be tween the goals. BIXTH (USE Tho same aide* took part in thla game, and a great deal better contest ensued, as Mr. Bobbins' side made a very determined reaistance. Mr. ifriswold, the um pire, came to graaa twice, and on the last occasion hla mount, an Iron gray pony, took a little canter around the fiold. much to the deligbt ol the gullery that lined the walla around the grounds. After sonn gooa play on the part of both sided, Mr. Purdy made another suc cessful rush and brought the ball near Lord Mande ville'a fcoal, but was ridden out and the battle carried back to tbo other end of tho grounds. Mr. Itobbina then worked lijce a Trojan and put off the evil moment, but the opposition were too strong and the Mandeville sldo scored a fourth victory, making the total score 4 to 'A BSVKNTH GAME An Interval now eusuod, during which time a meet ing of the member* waa held and Mr. Kobbina and Mr. Bennett were elected captains to chooso sides lor the match to be played next Thursday, on ths occasion of the opening oi tho new grounds. The afternoon's play concluded with a scratch game between the reds and bluea. Mr. A. Jay, playing with tho reds, made a splendid hit for the opening shot, driving the ball behind the goals of the blues, bat unfortunately the direction was not true, and It (ailed to paaa between the goals nnd had to lie hit out again. After a minute or two moro play Mr. Roobms, the captain Tif the reda, succeeded in hitting the ball through the blaoa' goal, and scored a game for the reds. e CIOHTH OAMK. Thoy changed sldos quickly, and were soon engaged In another contrat. It was very pleasant now, as the ?on had just gone down over the trees to the west ward, and the evening was cool and balmy. After practising for about ten miuutea longer the players gave op, and, changing their costumes, took tnsir seats In the coaches and were loon whirling along home aa fast aa lour horaea and a akiliul whip could take them. THE PELHAM COACH. Fifth avenue and Twonty-seventh street ia crowded ?very alternoon at half-past five, so much so that the casual atranger passing by stops to find out what la tba matter. The reason la that the Pelbatn coach arrivea at that hour. It is a mixed assemblage that gather to gether to soe tho coach come In?some club men,* some very horaey looking men and some,of the habitual loungers.

This sterling rowing association, whose charming quarters occupy a prominent position among kindred clubs on the Harlem River, threw opnn Ita hospitable ? doors yesterday afternoon to a large throng of friends and admirers, the evont being recognised as the open : Ing day of the season. Laden with aquatic honors, so to speak, this representative organisation may well feet proud of Its career. The Atalantas did wonders nearly thirty years sgo, and from all appearances their ago seems to wear well. At all events tho )oyou* and har monious gathering at the club house yesterday gave substantial evidence of Its widespread popularity. Old oarsmen and young oarsmen were on hand. There 1 were thoso thoro whom fatty degeneration had maue i available lor ballast only, and thero were present i ' hcores of bright young fellows of the best possible physique. The two otemenu compared notes, and the prospects of the club were apokea of In the most hope- j < till terms. But perliapa the most prominent leaturo ? oi the occasion was the appe.irannc, in a four-oared gi*. ? or the Atalantas' representative crew, whoso extol- I lent form and atyle elicited general admira- | lion. Thoso gentlemen wero Messrs. Walter ; H. Downs (bow), Henry W. Rodger (V), i Charles A. I.yon (8), and John K. Kuslis, who is both captain and Stroke. Much is cxpoctcd from ihis crew, and their porlormaaces during the Centennial matches ui Philadelphia will doubtless add to the well-won lanreli ol the club, which, by 'the way, has recently joined the Harlem Regatta Association. In the forth- ' coming regatta under tho auspices of that very thriv- . intt organization several momber* of tho Atalnnta 1 C ub intend to participate, especially In the single j scull races, including such great oarsmen as Messrs. K. Losae, Scan Ion and Ackermau. i'heir season opened yesterday under the most genial aospicea. The welfare and prosperity ol the club seemed to bo the all pervadlng idoa Tbe Reception Committee, consisting oi Messrs George Roahr, K. C. Ripley snd Charles ? Devoo, left notning undone to render tho surroundings exceedingly agreeable. President G. W. Deans, Vice President Clark and others contributed largely to ihe 1 enjoyment of their guests, and when the veteran au thority on aquatic matters, Mr. Charles Peverolly, recalled some of the time-honored reminiscences of the association In hie pleasant way, tbe handsome wooden building rang with cheers. The occasion was altogether sociable in tbe extreme, the festivities lasting until an advanoed hour. YACHTING NOTES. The following yachts passed Whlieslone yesterday;? .

The Sab-CommitU* of ths Congressional Committee of Investigation on tba Department of Justice yoster da; beld It*sixth day'* session, all the member* oi lb* committee being present. Marshsl Plske waa recalled and testified that ha haa Barer employed more than 2,500 deputy marshals. and aa to the coat of badges, ho had tbo improssion that they coat each about twenty-flve cents; though be bad got that impression ha did not know; he always found in the office quite a sufficient number of badges; In Marshal 8harpe's bill to the government those badges were charged lor at tba rate of 91 each. Luke Gednny, au employd la the Post Office and a Supervisor of Election In the Fourteenth Assembly district, was examined as to the oarriage bills for the election of 1872. He testified that bis bill of $33 waa a "constructiA" one. John J. O'Brien, who waa a weigher la tba Custom House In 1872 at a salary of 12,300 a yoar, also a Deputy Marshal and a member of the Republican Cen tral Committee, tostillcd that he belonged to the Eighth Assembly district, whero it was necessary to watch the polls and preparatory arrangements, but he paid all hla carnage bills bimaelf; he did not believe that the late Police Commiaslouor Smith waa a republican at all; be never held a sinecuro andor the city government; the voucher In JSbarpe's bill for $58 be pronounced correct. This witness wna ssked quite a number of questions aa to the falrni'M of tba elections, which waro of a general character and of no public intorcst in tho Information supplied. Joseph 1L Cboate, tho lawyer, who was Chairman of the Committee of Seventy's 8ub-Coinmittee on Elec tions, testified that Davenport had charge dur(ng the election of all details aa to putting the ticket In the flold and establishing tne general order of the work; from October till after eleotlon Davenport made returns to the sub-committee at different times* bin bills were approved by Em lie Sauer, who gave the check to wit" ness, who Indorsed it to Davenport; after elections a settlement was effected upon tho presentation of vouch' era; In 1872 Davenport was employed to detect the frauds In tho election of William M. Tweed to tho Senate; this work was very extensive and Davenport was paid reasonably (or It; the Committee on Fraudu lent Elections audited these bills; Davenport's pay lor j the first Job was $25,000; at that time witness did not know thai ho was drawing money from the se cret service judiciary lund, but supposed that he had aoma pay from the Slate Republican committee; atlor investigation Davenport was exonerated Iroin having j had anything to do with the suppression of the State ' democratic ticket; the Union I^enguo Club employed Davenport, but not as extensively as tho Committee of Seventy. Witness saw Davenport once at hia house, wbon he waa shown some of tbo campaign books, and then gave him $260 as a subscription toward the pub lication of these, believing that smaller subscriptions had beon given, but did not know then that he was re ceiving supplies from the Judiciary fund. ?Micbaoi Cregan testifiea that ho was a clerk in the Sixth District Court, and in 1872 had been United States gauger, Chief Doputy Marshal and also rnn as republican candidate fcr Alderman; ten aays before election he resigned as Deputy Marshal, but was de feated for Alderman by tho Commltteo of Seventy's candidate. The testimony ot this witness, beyond his holding these offices, was unimportant. Richard Edgwortb. messenger in tbo Custom House, and ib 1872 a Supervisor of Election In tho Tenth dis trict, testified that bo did not get any pay tor his work as supervisor aa he was drawing a salary from tho Cu?om House. It was oxpocted that John L Darcnpftrt would be ex amined yesterday afternoon, and that gentleman pre sented himself belore the oommittee in the very pink of smile and as quiet and collected as it four Congress men bad not beon investigating all bis doings u an electioneering agent for the past week. THRKW A HOMBSHKLL IMTO TIIS COMMITTKB before be left, snd showed a manliest feeling of Inde pendence aa to tbo committee's efforts to expose suy errors on hla part. He had been alroady sworn and was briotly oxemined at hla own request In regard to ene point only. This was concerning the bills lor oar rlago hire, about which so much testimony had been given tho day previous It waa sworn by ths book* Keeper or the New York Transfer Company that the bill made out for carriages at election time In 1872 was seventeen hundred aud some odd dollars, whllo the bill presented to tba govornmenv in Marshal Sharpo's name whs for $1,91U 5a Davenport called yes terdnv it the ofilces of the cmpuny and i overhauled the bookkeeper's accounts, when , It appeared that there was another bill I for over $300, and paid evon on the same day as tho I $1,700 btll waa paid, which brought the total 'amount up to moro than waa presented to the government, the difference being exactly the amount allowed off tho total bill by the company. Mr. Davenport ooinplalned that he did not get a chance yesterday to sot this mat ter right before it appeared in the newspapers, and presented a letter, signed by ths bookkeeper, Mr. ublpman, who hsd given the testimony on tbo pre vious day, acknowledging tne error and offering to come before tbe committee to make aucb acknowledg ment under oath. Mr. Cochrane Informed Mr. Daven port that, while the committee oould not tako official cogn.zance of the letter, still they would lie glad to af ford Mr. Chlpman, tho bookkeeper, an opportunity to correct his testimouy. Mr. Davenport then retired, promising to send Chlpman. John A. Shells, chief clerk in Davenport's office wss next examined, he testified to tbe chsrges In tbo office for searching and to the oontlnnatlon of the old rates, notwithstanding a recent law of Congress; the fees for searching were bsnded over to tbe clerk; was United States Commissioner since I860, the fees for which be himself retained; did not retain any fees for searching: the fees, in hisjadgment, smounted yearly to something between $5,000 snd $7,000; wss psld $2,126 a year salary, which came from the receipts of 1 the office; In Mr. White's time In the office a few heavy cases csme in, one of which, the Northern Pacific Rail road case, was worth about $20,000; another, the Erie { case, about $10,000. Tbe greater part of thia witness' , testimony was in regard to the number of aeputy 1 marshals sworn in by him in 1872. Tbe point j was tbat in the bill sent la Davenport | charged for the admission of over 3,000 deputy mar shals, snd It wss doslred to discover how many of these had made oath before tbe witness; in a mar- 1 glaai note to tbe bill was tne ststument tbat over 700 j bad been sworn la by witness snd tbo rest by Daven i port himself; the witnoss could not remember how ; msny men he hsd sworn, but bad not put In a bill or j received any compensation for bis servlees; he had ' been aaked by Mr. Davenport to assist bim, as he was | very busy, and he did so; be would not, bowevor, say i tbat the number given by Davenport waa not correct, ' and be remembered having at the time guessed at the j number when Davenport asked him to make a return. The next testimony taken was tbat ot Walter A. | Gibson, editor of tbe Harlem Local, newspaper, who ' some lew years sgo lost one of bis eyes and had bis ? face otherwise disfigured by an assault made upon bin. In yesterdsy's Hskald was given tbo testl- i mony of Mr. Haws, one ol the Orand Jury before whom 1 Mr. Oibeon appeared to complain tbat in siatlon I. ? Post OITlce 130 copies ot Ills paper were destroyed. Tbe facta in the case have been repeatedly published. Mr. Gibson has presented bis case to all the principal officials up to the President, but still baa got no re. dresa. He was trested kindly yesterday by Mr. Cauld well, tbe member ol the committee who examined him, and be told bis story from the beginning to tbo end. He left tbe committee room to sauimon one of tlie Grand Jurora before whom bis esse oamo, snd did not return. This ease will b? somcwhst fur ther investigated, aud Mr. Cauld well promised Gibson that it should reccive the attention of tbe committee.
