'Great Race between Fashion and
The second great trial for supremacy
'of the turf, tusk place yesterday over the
Camden Course, and the high reputation
of the contending animals induced sucl a
general interest, that the attendance was
very large. At an early hour in the tnor
ning, people began to crowd the ferry
boats which ply between this city and
Camden, and at a later period, the steam
boats were literally loaded d own with men
and vehicles of every description. The
:road to the Course was crowded with ve
hicles, and as the day was exceedingly
Lot and dry, the annoyance of huge clouds
of dust disturbed by . the wheels, was ad
ded to the inconveniences of the pilgrims
to the great centre of attraction. The
stands rapidly filled, and the field, at 11
o'clock, was thickly sprinkled with vehi
cles, o lide lines of omnibuses were drawn
up close to 'tile inner fence on the straight
side, the occupants of which used the tops
as places of fook•out, to see the horses as
they paSsW around.
Adjoining the member's stand, and con
nect.] with it, was the main stand, and
further Ah in the saint line, an open stand
without cover. These were soon crow
ded, and the Main stand, the roof of
which was prepared to accommodate peo
ple, was packed tO its Utmost capacity.—
Shortly befOre the race commenced, a
disastrout accident tbok place by the fall
tog of this main stand, the particulars of
which, so far as we could hastily gather
them, ate related in awo'ber article.
The weather was excessively lint, and
the track soinewhat heavy—betting ran
freely in favor of Peyttion, who appeared
to be the laborite, and 73 to Ibo seemed
to be the ruling figure.. Auk of the bets
however, were upon tune, the race being
so very dotibtful that most people weir,
puzzled to know which to choose, and of
those whit staked " their pile" on time,
the majority marked froth 7 37 to 7 40.
The falling of the stand added a great
difficulty to the preparations tier the race
the crowd front the stands and from the
field having been poured upon the track
in a dense mast, through Which it was
with exceeding difficulty an ()penning; of
sufficient width was Made to admit the
free ['wage or the Mutes. liurnig the
second heat the crowd of tieppl so en
croached Upon the 'hick, that Vashion in
coming in On the tourth mile, had hardly
room td get through, the people tailing
back as she came ou.
Shortly atter2 OclOck; the JUdgeS en ,
flounced from the stand, that it having been
ascertained from the hest medical authors
that 110 one was dead M. dying from
the injuries received by the falling Of the
stand, the 'lice would pcoceed—observing
et the same time that it had been the unan
imous determination of the Club to instant
ly postpone the race if any one hail been
killed, or had received injuries which it
was probable Would result in death.
The Jockies were previously weighed
and Barney the rider of Peytona having
made up Its Weight to 118 pounds, and
Joe Laird the Jockey of Fashion to 123
pounds, the preparations were concluded.
The horses were brought on the course
soon alter the announcement from the
Judges' stand, and both animals looked
in tip-top condition. . Fashion never look.
edtetter. l'eytnna won the inside of the
track, and the order for the start for the
first heat having been given, off they went
Fashion slightly ahead and continuing to
gain until at the first quarter stretch she
passed Peytona and got the inside of the
track. Along the top Peytona made a
brush and lapped Fashion, but the Jet sey
mare on coining into the back stretch shrunk
olf her opponent and stepped a length in
advance, which distance she continued to
'hold until the coining home; Peytona at
times making a brush and putting her
wise at Fashion's saddle, only to be left
behind again. The first three miles of the
heat were won in this manner, the Jersey
mare passing the stand each time a length
ahead, but on the fourth mile Peytmut did
not hold her position, so that Fashion
came in three lengths ahead, winning the
heat in Tin. 41s.
The following is the mile time of the
_first heat :
At the call of the bugle the horses ap
peared fur the second heat and it was ap
parent that they bad not dried up well,
both animals being pretty wet. Fashion
taking the inside, the animals went otr at a
slapping pace,Peytona slightly in advance,
an ;Wye utage,however, overcame by Fash
ion before the top of the course was reach
ed her nose being then pushed a little in
advance or her opponent. Both horses
went in this style down the back stretch,
and round tic bottom, coming into the
straight side almost even , but on passing
the stand, the first mile, Peytona was
half a head in advance. Oa the second
theAorses were so even in their run
fling, that the animal towards the specta
for could at times only be Seen. Peytu
na was doing her very best, but the free
and frequent application of the §pur, and
occasional admonitions with the o !tip,
did not serve to aid her gd-aheasi-a-tive
ness, while Fashion was going easily un
der a tight rein. The third inile was a
innst exciting period, the horses being ab.
solutely together all the way round, ex
cept that coining down the straight side,
Fashion got so much the foot of tier oppo
nent; as to pass the stand hair a head in
adVance. The fourth mile, the laSt tug,
was soon settled, for Peytuna, alter gal•
tautly struggling to bring up her lee way,
began to full back at the top of the course
anti on entering the back stretch, the Jer
sey mare opened a gap between her sod
her southern rival, and continuing to im
prove her ad vantage,was full three lengths
in advance, before they were half way
down•the back of the course. It Was ev
ident that the contest Wits settled, from
the manner in which Peytuna ran, and
Fashion came ih a Winner, amid deafen
ing cries and cheers, leaving Peytuna
barely grace enough tit save her distance.
The time of the Second heat was 7m.
54; and the toile tilde: '
- - 153
- - 2.10
Ist mile, -
2nd " •
The time made Was not good, and a
cause of this may be that the crowd ob
structed a large part of the course in such
a manner!as to prevent the horses Irom go
ing properly. On the second heat Fashion
was the favorite at long odds, and a con
siderable quantity of money changed
hands during the closely contested fit st
three miles. Fashion, it was said, was
held hard in hand throughout the second
Thus ended the second trial for the
supremacy of the turl, and Fashion is
again in possession of her hard won lau
rels. The stake of course was a slight con
sideration; the glory of the North and the
South being the real gage of the day. The
crowd quickly dispersed alter the result
hail been announced and but few nere
left its witnesses of the mile race. With
the departure of the exciteineat of the
contest the recollect:on of the disastrous
accident before the race was renewed,
and with the unsightly ruins before them
and the knowledge that some at least had
been seriously injuredy there was but lit
tle disposition left to see further trials of
speed. The spirit of rivalry had been
Satisfied by the victory of Fashion.

The Public Doiniiin.
Extensive Sales.—The President has
already issued his proclamation for very'
extensive sales, next summer and 411.10111i1l
of the public lauds in the northwest, west
and southwest, embracing an aggregate
of upwards of five millions of acres.—
In It isconsin Territory, about 310,000
acres of load, lying on and between the
Fox and Wolf rivers. lowa there are
two sales to take place at each of the land
offices in that Territory, Dubuque and
Fairfield, in the months ot September
and October. Upwards of 00,000 acres
of the rich bottom lands of Illinois will
be brought into market, embracing tracts
on the Mississippi and islands in that river
with small detached bodies of land not
heretofore offered. In Ahasouri, up
wards of a million of acres will be offer
ed kir sale, embracing tracts in the north,
northwest, west, and southwest parts of
,the State. In Arkansas there will alsobe
brought into the market about 1,000,000
acres, embracing nine townships in the
new district of Campagnole. In Louis
iana about 154,000, and in Florida, up
wards of 600,000 acres of fine sugar and
cotton land will be offered fur sale.
OUR BISHOP ELECT.--.—The general anx
iety to team whether 1/r. Alonzo Putter
will accept the ecclesiastical dignity con
ferred upon him with such graailying and
complimentary unanionty, seems to be
shared by the friends of the Protestant
Episcopal Church elsewhere. The Albany
Evening Journal of Wednesday says:—
"The general impression, derived from
the opinion of his neighbors, is that the
office will be declined. We, however,
are led to believe and to hope that Dr. P.
will accept. It will be taking away from
this State a very valuable citizen, and one
who, in various ways, assists largely in
carrying forward good enterprises; but
it will be taking him to Pennsylvania,
where an equally wide and much less cut.
tiiatad field for usetulnestl opens up to his
enlightened and philanthropic teachings.
There are difficulties, and perhapS dangers.
in his path, but Dr. P. is both too wise and
too good a man to hesitate in encountering
' either in the discharge of his duty. And,
besides, what could be perilous to others
will prove harmlesS to him. At any rate,
though thet•e are thousands whoa► we
could better spare," we hope to see
' Bishop Potter doing for the People of
Pennsylvania the things which have won
for his► the affection and gratitude of the
People of New York."
We are very sanguine that Dr. Potter
will yield to a sense of duty and accept,
although he leaves a hone of comparative
ease and quiet to fill an honorable but too
often thankless office. When the coin•
mittee appointed to tender him the office
reached Albany, on their way to Schenec•
lady, they called on his brother, the Itev-
Dr. Horatio Potter. Upon the annuncia
tion of the choice, he was much overcome,
and could scarcely answer any questions
as to the probability of hia brother's accept
ance. Ile, however, resolved to accoms
I pany the cominittee and use his endeavors
to induce a compliance with their wishes.
The Grops.—The Nlushington Union
says : —" A friend who has recently trav
elled through a portion of the rich agri
cultural regions of Pennsylvania—York
Lancaster, Dauphin, Lebanon, and Berks,
for example—represents it to us as in a
highly promising and flouliShing condi
tion. Nature is everywhere scattering
her gifts from her well-hlled cormicopim,
with a liberal and profuse hand, and the
husbandman has promise of a rich return
for his labors. The wheat fields are said
to be more exempt from the fly than has
been the case for many previous seasons,
and its ravages, usually so destructive,
will be comparatively unfelt. Rye, corn,
oats, and grass. also looks remarkably well
so that both " man and beast" may rejoice
in the prospect that the ingsthering of the
summer and autumn will result in boon•
tiful supplies fur the succeeding winter."
Important to oioder4 rented Farms.
—ln a trial at the recent , iessions of our
Court reported in bur la 4:. an attempt WAS
made to prove the removal of hay and
straw by the tenant of a farm who was
defendant in the case the Court ru
led out the evidence, on the ground that
the tenant had a right to the hay and
straw raised by him on the preniises, in
the absence of any stipulation or lease to
the contrary. The council for the dclen
dant stated that it had ul ways been his
opinion, that where no stipu:ation in relit
lion to hay and straw was made in a lease
the tenant had a right to remove itur dispose
of it as he thought proper, it being as much
his properly as the grain lie rased—and that
had been so decided by the Supreme it
Court. The Court coincided in this
Opinion. and under the decision of the Su
preme Court rejected the evidence above
This law we presume, is new to a ma
.jority of our farmers, and is exactly con
trary to their views of it. It will be well
for landlord a leasing farms, to bear this
in mind, and where they do not intend
the tenant to remove hay or straw, (as is
generally the case,) stipulate its reserve.
