As usual a largo crowd collected around tho Hotel ltruu.suirk yesterday niorniug to wltueas thedeparturo of Mr. Delaneoy Kane's coach. This crowd, which see ins to grow larger day by day Instead of decreasing, shows conclusively thai Mr. Kane'* enterprise is looked upou by the people ol New York with pleasure uiid satisfaction, lor tbu person.-' composing it are geuerully ' ol the better class and their remarks concerning the l'elbum coaeh and Its urbane driver ure always eulo gisiic. At half-past ten A. M. the party, consisting ol seven gentlemen aud lour ladies, being comlorlubly seated, Mr. Kuuo took tin' ruins in baud and started up Kilib avenue Tbu crowd that bad gathered to witness the departure extended as lar as Twuuiy-oigblh street, aud when tbu guard blew bis horn many or tho onlookers seemed deposed to give an answering cheer if the pro prieties would allow it In the wiudows of tho Knick erbocker Ciuli a numlicr ol guntlemon wuro stationed, sumo ol whom belonged to Ihu Coaching Club, who ear neslly watched the progress ul the coach up the avenue. Thu liuuibcr ol carriugos uud vehicles ol all kinds that were on tbu street yes terday almost blocked up tue thoroughfare. but Mr. Kuue skiiiuliy threaded his way tlm ugh thu muss, aud tint coach rolled alon^ at a rattling rate of speed. Long before hall-past live in the afternoon another croud, evon larger than the 0110 in tho morning, gathered in front ol the Hotel Brunswick to seu tlie return o! thu Fulhum coach. As it came noar thu time somu of the crowd, more impatient than the rest, would run out in the middle of the street, strain their eyes up the avonue, run back to Ou sidewalk and tell tiie bysUuduis they could not see the coach on account of thu crowd of carriages. Hut just at tweuly live minute* alter live the horn of the guaid was heiird on the bill at Thirty fourth street, auiI the cry went up. ''Hero he comes! here ho comes!" from hlty dillerout voices. Among the an seniblage crowding the sidewalk opposite the hotel yes terday afternoon were a number of elegaut'y dressed ladies, who were taking their allernoon promenade, and, attracted by the crowd, remained w ith the rest awaiting the appearance of tltu coach. Notwithstanding all the carriages of all descriptions returning from Jerome Park w inch crowded the 1'ark and the avenue yesterday, when Mr Kane arrived in front ol the hotel It was precisely half-past live?not a miiiutu behind time. It took but a short lima lor the party to alight, when they exchanged tho usual courte sies aud separated. All expressed tbomselves as having been highly de lighted with their rido, the laitl 8 particularly, all of whom carried large bunches ol llowurs. The trip was a very pleusaut one, for. notwithstand ing the warmth ol thu day, theru was a pleasant bree/.e stirring when once outside tbu city. It wit# devoid ol any marked Incidents, except that whan passing through Westchester, in which a Catholic fair is being hold, tliu girls attending the fair cheered and waved their hand kerchicls uud threw tjuuutitics of flowor* to the occu pants of thu coach.

There is something to bo said in favor of spcudlng a day in this manner, uud if no other engagements in terfere tho drive out of towu, via Finch ley and Hamp stead Heath to the l'alaoe is very onjoyable. Tho an nual meeting of tho Coaching Club takes place at Long's, at half-past lour Saturday next. There is no alteration in iho Committee of tho Four in-Hand this year, nor have any ucw uombers boon elected as yet. The Puke of Du-iUlort is president of the two clubs, and while I.ord Aveland looks after the lntorusts of the Four-ln-Hantf Colonel Armytago at tends to the Coaching Club. 'l'tiero is no rumor of any now lights of other days on tho box, or iu any way con nected with coaches this year: but those who were novices are Improving, aud tbo-igh we cannot expect better cattle than wo have seen belore, one or two Juvenile coachmen will look uiore at euse. If tho fash:on to stare at tho meets is going to lucrcaso this seasou some other arrangements will have to be madu lor the beueilt of tho drags and lor tho convenience of the public, lor lully two hours altera meet, and for some tinto belore, IhO l'ark and Its approaches are at a dead lock, nud happy is he who hath time aud pntieuce. Why should so mauv carriages be packed iulo tho Scr|>oui>no drive r One row would be ample. Now three are usually crammed there. The consequenco is that Hyde l'ark Cornur is thu point at which tho various streams debouch, and where thoy stick. It lias been suggested by some ol the Four-in-Uand members that to obviate tins unnecessary )am in the Park and Piccadilly, tho parade should bo conliuued round the l'ark, uud by tin." means it would l>e extended indefinitely lor the .- ght-sueing public, aud carriages would have no uxcuse lor crowding up to tbu Achilles statue. Ihu parade would coino away as usuul from the Mug islue, then turn to tbu right at thu end of the How on past the barracks, t'.ieu to tho right ovor the terpentine aud round by the Marble Arch, and out for good at Hyde Park Coriu-r. The idea is a very good one, aud wo hope it will be acted upon. Mr. Kiowur, the enemy of the bearing rein, speak* ol the large number ul gentlemen tbal have dispensed with It this season, and wo shall consequently expect to see mure heads I rue lu the toums than there were last \ear.

Tbe prospects of the aewaD are decidedly encourag lug, and, Judging from the extensive preparations In yachting circles Cor some lima past, thero la reuaou to anticipate tome lively and interesting competition. | Yachting baa its sterling devotees just as other pas ' titui's have theirs, and those who occasionally hint thai I the sport is not as thoroughly popular as it ought to be ) ou this side ol the Atlantic hardly appreciate the iuier j eat und enthusiasm which our yachtsmen invariably , mamlest in all matters appertaining to our pleasure ! navy. There are many eveuts announced to take place that call lor more than a passing notice, and among i them might be mentioned the proposed visit of I tbe new cralt Iroiu Canada, wuicb ere long ' will contest <or tlio America's cup. Everything has so | far been} sutlsfuctorlly arranged for the struggle, and | that the best boat may win is the univorlal desire or i all. As previously announced, there will be three 1 races, which aro set down for tho loth, P-'th and 14th i ol July, the American competitor to bu named on the first of that month. The course for the llrst event will be that of the New York Yacht Club, tbe second will bo outside the Hook, twenty miles to windward and back, and tho third, if a third race be found necessary, will bu selected lutor on. At ull events it Is to bo hoped that our welcome vlrltor will have aruplo opportunities to try the capacity of his vessel, especially should she join In the annual cruise of tbe New York Yacht Club. Those who n.irtlctpated in tho delightlul eveut that marked tho advent of tho Cambria, the splendid races at Newport, tbe congregation In that harbor of licet sailors iroiu all quarters, the run to Martha's Vineyard, tbo subsequent reception by the Eastern Yacht Club, the display at Marblo Head and tho grand regatta at Swumpscott will not readily forget tbe Impetus tfie sport received. It was memorable tor all lliu very best features that could make a yachtsman proud. Perhaps during tho early part of tho fall we may look forward to a similar treat, for It Is said that ibo fleet of tlie New York Club will be augmented by tbe advent of many kindred asso ciations, that the cruise will be prolonged, that uew sceues will mark its progress, and that in floe the groat annual event will bo superior in all respects to Its numerous predecessors. Howbelt, it Is to bo hoped that the event will lie worthy of the year. TilK CKilTKN.VUL RKOATTAB.
