EPSOM RACES. The Contest for the Oaks- and. the Epsom Cup. DEAD HEAT FOR THE FORMER. Camellia and Enguerrande Divide the Stakes. DALHAM WINS THE EPSOM CUP. Mate, the American Representative, Finishes Third. [STKCZAJL DS8PAXCH TO THX HTBiT.P BY CABLH.] London, June 2, 187C. The Oaks, the great race that la more particularly ander the patronage of the Hair sex, was decided at Essoin to-day and resulted in a dead heat between Count La Grange's Cornelia and M. Lupin's Enguer rande, the latter bred in France and the former foaled la that country. There was no deciding heat, as the ?takes were divided between these fillies and En guerrande walked over Uie course. THE OAKS AND DERBY DAYS CONTRASTED. A greater contrast than Epsom Downs presents on the Derby and Oaks days counot be imagined. The Derby is a gigantic saturnalia. It is seized upon by King Mob, and the Lord of Misrule prevails most thoroughly. It is true that at the Derby all the phases of English life are presented in one vast pic ture, but it must be admit ted that the coarser element predominates. The lordly four-in-hand is swamped by the Whltechapol costermonger's van, and in the uproarious drunken mirth of the British workmen there is occasionally a ferocity to be shuddered at. On the Derby Day false noses are at a premium, as also are little dolls, and the proprietors of "knock 'em downs" reap a fortune. There is little of this on the Oaks Day. The side of the hill looks, per* haps, lonely to what it does on the Derby Day; but yet you are orten puzzled to find the particular car nage to which you have been invited to take lunch eon. The Oaks is an elegaut file. For weeks past the poor milliners have been having a trying time of it, and many a consultation was there of the glass this morning. Ueauty on such occasions likes to dis port itself in an open carriage, and beauty considers that it never looks so well as when it is toy ing at a picnic with a pattf or a lobster salad, or, per haps, flirting with a glass of champagne. On the Oaks Day the luncheon is first and the race second. Do not expect on the Oaks Day to buy a fine lobster In London for much less than $5, and for every plover's egg that can be found there Is a ready mar ket at twenty-five cents, rati ae fole gras is weighed in scales of gold and pineapples rise to un heard of values. And ali because there is a gigantic picnic on Epsom Downs. On the Oaks Day itinerant musicians earn more money by singing their love ballads than they do during all the remainder of the year. The gypsy finds many a fair hand held out to her and marks the lines with a piece of gold. ACCOMMODATIONS AND MANAGEMENT. Within the last few years the Epsom grand stand has been very considerably enlarged, and it is the faahlou now to take a private box, a box that costs about five times as much as one on the grand tier at Covent Garden on a Patti night. It is a line thing to be a shareholder In tho Gpsom grand itand. The original shares were $125 each, but only last week a number were sold at $530, and even at that they pay six per cent. Though the Epsom races are so famous, the management Is most niggardly, and owners of horses, who, as a matter of fact, pay the. piper, say that Uie company, instead of <inadrupling the ralue of their shares, might give a little tway-in the shape of prizes. To the Grand Prize of Paris there is no less than $20,000 of added money, but to the Derby, which is a much greater race, not one penny is given, and the same Li the case with the Oaks. Nay, more than this, only a year or two ago they had the Impudence to deduct from the stakes $200 for the judge, $250 for police expenses and $5uo for champagne. Lord Falmouth, when he won the Derby, broke the neck of this. When re minded of the champagne money he spoke out most indignantly. "No, I will not," he said; "in a f.-w mill 11 ted' time some of these boys will be riding and holding their lives in their hands, and if anything were to happen to them I should feel morally guilty and responsible for it. I will give double the money to the local charity of the town." KVSOM COl'KSE. Kpsom race course is one of the worst in England. It is of the shape of a horseshoe. The first half mile Is up a severe hill; there is then all of a quarter of ? mile of nice galloping on the top, which leads to a steep descent, round a sharp curve known as Tat tenham Corner. The remainder of the distance is straight, but undulating and on the side of a hill. Tatte%bam Corner is a terrible place, and it is said Fordham is afraid of it, which is tho reason why he has never won the Derby. He has won the Oaks several times, but the lleld for that race is never large, and, therefore, he can choose his ground. It was at one time feared that this prince of jockeys would never be able to ride again ; but it Is antici pated that he will be in the saddle once more at Ascot. CANDIDATES AND OWNKBS. Bad as were the runners in the Derby, they were ft race of equine heroes as compared with the lllllcs that took part in the Oaks. In the One Thousand Guinea*, which is considered a sort of trial race, the three foremost places were occupied by the French division, Count La Grange furnishing the first nnd second with Camclia and Allumctte and M. de Mont ginnery the third with La Heine. Both Count i.a Grauge's pair, however, were in reality bred In Kng laud, Mr. Naylor having sold the mares In foal to that great High Priest of Honduras, M. Lefevre, who races in partnership with Count La Grunge. U the French were dangerous in the One Thousand, they promised to lie still more so here. The three animals named above were assisted by Kn&urronde, a Uily belonging to M. Lupin, that won the French Oaks and finished second in the French Derby. Of the English mares perhaps the less said the bet ter. Last year Twine the I'laidcu, a daughter of Blair Athol, was believed to be by far the best, and she won many races. In the Two Thousand, how ever, she looked like being a non-stayer. This race is not, however, always a criterion. Blink Bonny nnd Marie Stuart, two of the most famous mares of pny time, were beaten in it beiore winning the Oaks, and tliey turned the tables on their con querors in the meat decisive manner. Mr Cartwrl?ht had a very promising filly in the entry out of Princess of Wales, the dam of his Derby winner, George Frederick, but she is not so good as from her breeding she ought to be, and she did not start. The veteran Marsyas, the sire of George Frederick, has just been laid low by a friendly bullet, and Mr. Cartwrlght, his owner, has raised a monument to his memory. The Fylleld division, though they took seven nominations to the Oaks, had not a flyer among them, and Lord Falmouth, who won last year with Spinaway, had nothing better to represent his splendid breeding establishment than the Flirt, and she did not face the starter. A very promising Illy belonging to Mr. Baltazzi, called CorydaUs, was at ono time expected to do great things, but, unfortunately, when running In a race last year, she was driven against the rails and cut very severely, since which time we have not seen much of her, and she did not respond to the sum mons. Gem of Gems, a very grand looking filly, also met with an accident. She hadwon at race at Don caster and on her return home she got cast In a rail way box and was severely hurt and her owner did not start her. Another smart filly, for whom $5,000 had been refused, was killed in a railway collision brought about by frross negligence. This was hard on the owner, as, according to the law of England, the railway company are liable un der such circumstances only to the extent of $260. Solitude, who cost nearly $10,500 as a yearling, and is half sister to Hermit, who won the Derby, was at one time believed to be a wonder, but she was last in the One Thousand Guineas, and did not appear to-day. ller owner, however, can afford such dis appointments, as he gets $300,000 a year out of Bass' bitter beer. Pulcherrlma, the daughter of Formosa, who won the Oaks in the year that Lady Elizabeth was a competitor, cannot stay half a mile, and was not trusted. Levant, the property of Lord Kose bery, had the merit of having won a race over the course, but since then she has showed tho most wayward temperament. ROYALTY NOT PRESENT. The attendance was grand in every respect, but the representatives of royalty, usually in force to witness the decision of this interesting race, were absent, proving a great disappointment. TUB STARTERS. Of the 166 subscribers ouly fourteen were thought fit to send to the post. These were Count Lagrange's Camelia and stable companion Alluinette, M. A. Lupin's Bnguerrande, Mr. Drummond's Merry Duchess, M. H. Delauiarre's Filoselle, Mr. SavlUe's Zee, Mr. Somraervllle'a Llrls, Lord Zetland's Maga rlta, M. A. do Montgomery's La Seine, Lord Roso bery's Levant, Mr. W. Day's Vlttorla, Mr. BotterlU's Majesty, Mr. F. Douglas' Cailnga and Mr. Bowe'a Twine the l'lolden. tik BirrriNO. The betting before the start ruled 4 to 1 against Euguernuide, 5 to 1 against Camelia, 8 to 1 against Levant, 8 to 1 against La Seine, 9 to 1 against Llrls, 15 to 1 against Twine the Plahlen, and 20 to 1 against all the others. TIDE RACK. The fourteen competitors assembled In good time and when the flag fell went away on equitable terms. La Seine first drew out from the cluster, and going to the front, maintained the poat of honor for a mile, and the excited lookers-on felt assured that site would finish in brilliant form and prove the winner. Glover, who had the mount on Cainella, at this point, of half a mile from home, called upon her, and, confirming her claims to be considered a speedy filly, >*"* tespondod in capital style and soon passed zflook the lead. FronfTat tenham Corner to the Bell, Camelia still showed In front, but here Hudson moved Bnguerrande out of the ruck, and closed the daylight so rapidly that she caught Camelia in the laat stride, and they went dash by the JuUges head and head and a dead heat was declared. The greatest excitement prevailed among the spectators, and a thousand,clieers rent the air. Merry Duchess was tliird, four lengths behind the leaders; Filoselle fourth, Zee fifth, Llrls sixth, Ma garita seventh. La Seine eighth, Levant ninth, Vitto ria tenth, Majesty eleventh, Catlnga twelfth, Twine the Plaiden thirteenth and Allumette last. The race, from start to finlsli, was iuii at a capital pace. The time of the mile and a half was 2:50, being six seconds slower than the Derby. The dead heat was not run off, the owners dividing the stakes, each receiving $10,812, and Enguerrando walked over the course. Only ouce before In the history of the Oaks has the result been a dead heat, but on the first occasion, 1858, Mr. Grat wickfc's Governess and Admiral Harcourt's Gllder mlre ran off the heat, which Governess won. It will be remembered that Camelia won the One Thousand Guineas, and Bnguerrande recently secured the French Oaks and was only beaten a head for the French Derby. TUR Gll.VXD PlltZE AT PAKI3.

Cornelia, one of tbe dead heaters, Is a bay Ally by Macaroni, out of Araucsrta, was foaled In France, 1873. Araucana, at timo carrying Camella, was sold lor $7,000 at tbe breaking up of Mr. Naylor's establish ment, at Hooton, May, 1872, Mr. T. Jennings buying her lor M. Letevre, tbe Frencb speculator. Camella, as a yearling, became tbe property of Count l.a Grange, her present owner. In 1874 Camella fulfilled four en gagements in England. She mado her first public ap pearance in the July Stakes at Newmarket, when sho ran a dead heat with Gilestono for third place, Levaut and Farnese coming In first and second. Oil the following day she contested the Exeter stakes and finished sccond to her stable companion, Allumette, with wbotu Count La Grange declared to win. She scored her first victory at Goodwood, winning a sweepstakes of 200 sovereigns each, for two-year-old fillies. Solitude run ning second and Fame third. Journeying on to Brighton in the following week, she won the two-year old Corporation Stakes, carrying 125 lbs., Gilestone, 117 lbs., being beaten a neck; Majesty, 113 lbs., third, closo up. this was bcr last performance of the year in England, and a fortnight alterward she contested her only race in France, winning vory easily tbe Grand Cri terium, at Vlcby, witb 123 lbs., her noarest opponents being Le Drole, 126 lbs., and Marmlon, carrying 119 lbs. Sho wlntored well, and grew into a good muscular filly, and In her first essay as a three-year-old lully proved that sho was not an overrated animuL This was for the Ooe Thousand Guineas, run on May 6, when she landed the wlnuer by a head, bcr stablo companion, Allumctie, being second. La Seine was three lengths away, Majesty a good fourth, Zoo fifth, Twine tho I'laiden sixth and tho others bf-'iten off. This victory securod $10,500 lor hor owner Since the One Thousand Guineas victory Camelia has been in preparation lor the Oaks, with what success is here reportod. Camelia has engagements in the Don caster St. Leger, Grand Prizo of l'aris, tbe All-Aged Stakes at the Now market Houghton Meeting, Twenty Itflh Bentinck Memorial Stakes at Gookwood ain. tL Zetland Stakes and Doncastcr Stakes at Doncastor. She is also engaged in the Champion Stakes, to bo run for at Newmarket tho Sccond Octobor Meeting in 1S77 Enguorrandc, the other dead heater, is a French filly by Vermont, out of Deliane, the property of M. Lupin. As a two-year-old she was thought highly ot; and when sho ran in tbe Pren dergast Stakes at the Newmarket Houghton meet ing was considered quito invincible. In a Ueld of ten she startod lavorite 4 to 1, and was only beaten by Lord Dupplin's Kaleidoscope by a neck alter a rattliug finish. Kaloidescopo was giving Enguerrande 8 lbs., but ss there is no doubt bo was n very good horse just theu, the performance was a most meritorious one ou tho part of tbe filly. That great fine filly by Scottish Chief, out of Gong, belonging to Sir A. de Rothschild, was tblrd, beaten a nock, at levol weights, from Enguerrande, and In the deleated field, among others, were Julius Ciesiir (third (or this year's Derby), giving her 6 lbs., Father Ciarot. giving 8 lbs., and Fetterlonk, giving 2 lbs. ''Enguerrande," said "Augur,'* in tho London Sporting Life, last January, when gossipplng about tbo "young ladies" engagod In the Oaks, "gives every indication of being an Improving filly, and I cer tainly class uer among tbo dangerous division." How near "Augur" bit the mark, to-day's great race clearly shows. This year Enguerrande won the Frenoh Oaks, and was beaten by a houd only for tho French Derby. Sbe has engagements In tho Doncastcr St. Leger and the Grand Prize at Paris. HOW BiCTH ABB TO BB DECIDED. Tbe rule ot English betting, which covers this case ot the Derby and all similar ones, is as follows:? When horses run a dead heat for u plate or sweep stakes and the owners agree to divide, all bets between such horses, or betwoen either of tliem and tbe Ueld, must be sottloa by the money betted being put to gether and divided between tbo parlies in tbe simo proportion as tbe stakes. II a bet is made on ono of tbe horses that ran the dead beat against a beaten horse, ho who backed tue horse that rau ib? dead boat wins half bis bet if bis borne received hall the prize; il tbe dead beat be the Urst event o( a double bet, tho bet is void unless one horse received above a moiety, which would constitute blm a winner in a double ovent. DEAD HEATS. In reviewing the English racing season of 1875. so far as referring to tbe number of dead heats tuade in the almost innumerable events decided, the l'all Mull Ga zette, last winter, thus discoursed There aro lew persons probably who would like to sail a boat?to apply llio lioratian criterion of coull deuce?with a man who can see unmoved u dead heat between good horses Not thut such a result always, or even generally, proves thnt there is no wore than a pin to choose between the two or more horses that run the dead heat; but there is tbe possibility of equality, and to ihat element of Interest are added cousiciera tions of another sort?sheer surprise, admiration lor a jockey's judgment and turtles; appreciation, if it he a handicap, ol the htndicuppcr's skill; and. If you hap pen to have made a bet. the rollcction that you may have another chance lor your money. At the first blush it might seem 'likely that there would bo more dead beats In bandicuus than in other races, because, it might be argued, that the handicapper has to make the cnui|>etltors us cqutil as possible; but, on the other Side.it may lie sunt that the handicapper, having to adjust the supposed Ine quality in tne gilts ol nuture. has to conten t i.ot only ugainst his owu human tallioihty, but against the craft uud subtlety ol inmyancvil one whose interest it is to make tbe worse appeur the bi tter horse. However that may be tbe greatest of the annual rucoa do n>t produce many dead heats; but whether so many us might be expected must depend u|>ou the oxtou'i ol any particular person's expectation. There may, of course, be deud boa ? on the llat or in the steeplechase for first, second or third placo between two hordes or any number ot them. As regards the tlat upd the tirst place only a tolerably carelul investigation revealsonlv two-nnd-twenty dead heats out ot the almost innumera ble races ol the past season In England, aud not ono of them in any race ol importance. In 1828 there wus a I dead heat between Cadland and The Colonel for tbe j I>erby; In 1848 there was a dead heat between (lover- ' nets aud Olldermire for the Oaks; In 183'.# there was a dead heat between Charles XII. and Euclid, and in 1850 j between Voltigecr and Ru*sborou.jh for tbe St. I.egor; and in 1808 there was a deud heat between Modern and Formosa lor the Two Thousand; but If on any other occasion these toremoat events have yielded a dead heat memory falls to recall it. There was a dead heat In 1807 for tho Grand l'rix do Paris between Fervacques and l'atricien, and ;t is memorable Irora tbe I act that Kervncqucs, notoriously the worse horse by nearly a stone ol tiie two, won by liitie more than a nead. The explanation was that l'a tricien had been unable to keep up the splendid condi tion in which he had been brought out lor the French Derby, which ho hud won alter a tremendous and pun ish:nx race. The French Derby, by the way, otlersoue ol the most striking lustauces of the uncertainty which not unlrequently attaches to dead heats. In 18&S I.lou aud Diannnt ran u dead heat tor the French Derby; j but wlien tho dead heat was run olf Diainant was beaten out ol sight. No doubt tho dead beat had come to pass lor some of those reasons which do not readily occur to the public, but wnich , will account for many an unexpected result; a jockey Is over confident or caught napping, or vain of Ins ??Hue" finish; or a horse is more sluggish then ho was supposed to bo; or an owner has glveu injudicious in structions; or there hss been a scrimmage and a diffi culty In getting through. On thik account a deciding he.it is always more satisfactory than a walk over and division of stakes, except, no doubt, to the poor horses and tholr riders, and sometimes to one portiou of the lienors. And the authorities liuvo done what they could to secure such satisfaction; for, "in order to pro mote sport," says Admiral Hous, "and to prevent stakes and plates Irom being compromised alter dead heats, the horses are penalised In all future ovi nts to carry say extra weight which the winner ol thu w.iole stake would be entitled (*>'<) to carry." A deciding heat is especially interesting as giving tho betting fraternity an opportunity ol showing their Judgment, based upon an actual performance belors their eyes. Momelimes they are very wide of the mark, notably In the cases of liuckatone and Tim \\ hilller aud Ely and General I'eel. ou two memorable occasions at Ascot, though, of course, they wufe not Ixiiind to know that "thu General'" would "cut it" This ye-ir out ot lbs score or so of dead heats, one was a match between I.iwtie Distin and John Day, nt Don caster, in September, aud c tine to noininz. Six ended In a walk over. Ol the remaining ilftoen, that tor ihe Bushes Handicap, at Newmarket Craven Meeting, pre sented the rar spectacle of three hor?o< llcspable of being seperated by the Jud e; they ultimately took the following order:?Trouibooe. Hermitage, Cat's Eye, tho belling having been right as regarded the first and wrong as regarded the other two. I neoin muii as a dead heat between three may be, whether lor the tirst piece or lor another, there are examples of it ready to hand, as when, in 1857, Prioress. Kl Haknn j and Queen Be.-s ran a dead heat for tho Cesarowitch, and when, In lsd#, Normanby, Mount Floatmt an I Indian iicean ran a dead heat lor second place to | Uarr.er in the Corporation 8tak?s at Don< aster. Other in'tances may occnr., to otner ineniorle-. After the i dead heat lor the Ksher Stakes at Sandown Fark this j yuar between Muuden und Grey I'almer the layers of 1 u to 4 on Muntien w ere justified easily. After the doad heat between Clara and Harriet Laws at York, in May, for the Glasgow Stakes, tho betting wsseven, tint Clara wdu by three lengths. Tho 6 to 4 laid on Kveleen, who had run a dead heat nt Newion with Sylvanus, was fully sanctioned by tbe ovini; and sa was the 6 to 4 on Bay of Naples against Craig Millar at Ascot Only a neck saved, the layers ol 9 to 4 on liitm Dhiiu againsi Daisy for tlie Cllftonville Slakes at Brighton; and by the sarno distance judg ment was giveu against those who prelerrcd UCdipus io Hubert de liurgh, in the ratio of 6 to 6, at K.gbain. For th* Alexandra I'.alo Handicap at Alexandra Park, Martini and I'icx Me Up ran n dea-i heat; they laid 11 to 10 on Martini, though in tbo first rare it bad berD even on Hick Me Dp against the field; I'icic Me Up came In first when the <lead heat was run off, hut '*wtm di-'tualiUed, anil the race awarded to Martini," so that It become* rather difficult to decide how lar the Judgment oi ibe better* wuh coriect. At Stockton and at Slreaibaiu two small affair* produced dead heats, aiid the layer* ot odus bit the right nail on the head iu i>oih cases; but at Oxiord, iu the ease or tbo 1ms Selling .Stakes, they wore three garter* of alengtb out in preferring I'aul ine to Prima at 6 to 4, and at Llchlield, on the 6ih ot (ictobcr, they wero two lengths out in laying 0 to 4 on Optimist against Black Joe. 'I he Queen's Plato at Lincoln produced a dead heat between the only two runner*. Lily Agnes and Figaro 11., and only by a houd did tlx-Co; uier prove the misjudgment of those, who. having laid & to 4 against her In tbo hrst instance, went so lar as tt to 4 in the second. At Lowes, in November, t-Alage, having run a dca.l heal with Miss Jeffrey lor tho Uuy Kuulies Selling Stakes, Justified l>y a neck the 11 to 10 laid ou her; but tho layers of 7 to 4 ou Wigwam agiuuc>t Satisfaction after the dead heal lor the All Welter Handicap at Liverpool must have felt that they bad put iho sjdule ou the wrong horse It will be found, then, that out of the fifteen cases wo buve noticed tbo layers ol odds have been right once, ifuol twice, olteuer than thoy have U>eu wronB', which Is, perhaps, quite as otten as could be expected. It is not improvable, however, Unit Ibe layers of od.ls are soiuetn.ies guided not so much by their knowledge of horse flesh us by their coulldence iu n ceitain "jock," and there are certainly circumstance* undor which It would be lar safer to hack rider than horse. To aeo two or moro horses run two or tuore suc cessive de.id heats, Is not likely to liuppeu to oven a constant attendant ot races during an ordi nary lileiiino; but a carol til search among the records would probably reveal several curious Incidents of tiio kind. Whether there lias been such a thing as a dead heal lollowed by a second dead heat within iho last two years may he kuowu to some oruclo of sporting circles; but certainly iu 1873 such a singular spectacle was witnessed ut Epsom on the Oaks day, when Arcesilaus and Cntnbourne ran a dead bi>ui for the Ourduns Selling Stakes, aud on essuying to run it off again ran a dead heat, Arcesilaus winning the third tune of asking by two lengths; but the course was only flvo lurjon^s. How u very pretty quarrel about a bet may be occasioned by a dead lioal is lo be gathered from the olllcially reported case.of A helling II 25 to 10 that in a certaiu sweep stakes Keubeu and Culiph would not bo first an<'second. Keuben came in lirst, but Caliph anil Skiiligolee ran a dead lieat for second place, 'the st iras, to whom the bet was referred lor decision, ??were of opinion that this caso must be put mi the footing ol'two events or matches, whore the lirst event was won aud the second event terminated by a dead heat: they therefore recommended that the money Should be put together aud divided." The decision . liave be. n ci|Uitable enough to dissatisfy both A B, but it ailonls ground for about a month's argu ment. Nor is the wording of the bet quite clear; II is not plain whether Keuben and Caliph were to be ris peutively lirst aud secoud, aud a dead host for Hrst p.ace between Heubeuuud Caliph might have raised an other UilliciM ques'ton. As the caso is siuled, it does not appear that there was any money for the sec ond horse; it so, the stakes wero not affected by the dead beat, and this would seem 10 lake it out of tho category oi those dead heats which cause a division of the betted money in accordance with llio division of tho slakes, uud to maku it a simple question of whether the judge did or did not assign the first and secoud places to two specially named horses. It would appear, moreover, to t.o of tho very essence of tho bet thut the two events should be Inseparable, which, no doubt, rendered an Alexandrian solution of tho Uordlan knot appear easier than any other.

Tho third event will be the Withers .Stakes, for which, probably, eight or nine clippers will iace tho startor. The favorites seem to belong to Messrs. Belmont, McDuuiel and Lorillurd, but as favorites do not always win thero will not bo much surprise should the winnor represent some other stable. Tho fourth race will be a dash of a milo aud a hall, for a purse, with maiden allowances, and the fifth a soiling race, a dash of a mile and a quarter. As thore are two races ol a mile arid a quarter aud one of a mile and a hall, whoro tho horses start a long way from the grand stand, wo would suggest that before the horses aro taken to the starting place thoy bo brought before the people aud there paraded for a lew minutes, so that thoy and their colors may become familiar to tho spec tators.
