The year ;i51 is metnorable in the his tory ot American sport, for it was then that the "'A merica" easily defeated a fleet of English vacwhts, at Cowes, Isle of Wight, and thereby won the one hundred guinea cup of the Royal Yacht Squadron. From the iame of the winer the cup has been known best as the America cup. It is not a thiiing o(i beaut y, but the New York Yachit (lb has no moinre interesting poe sesion, and the "Puritan" and "Priscilla" have been built expressly to defend ii against the "Genesta."

TO FORT ASSINABOI:.E AND RE. TURN. A trip to Fort Assinaboine at this sea son of the year is most pleasant, aside from the inconvenience of being cooped up in the interior of the stage, when our inclinations are to be on the outside where we can see the country. Still we need not complain because Sam Peppin secured the seat we so much desired. Four o'clock in the morning is a most unchristian hour to start, especially when a fellow requires matutinal nourishment to enable him to stand the trip. However we get our bag gage aboard and travel at a lively gait un til we reach the Marias, where Mose, aroused by the clatter, comes to the door in his night robes to see what the matter is. Clark does not stop long at this point, but gets across the river to the station, where Mrs. Egan has a good breakfast prepared, after which the horses are changed and we are whisked off to the Coal Banks. Here we find a detachment of the 20th infantry under command of Lieut. Dent. We did not make his ac ...

They Capture a Wealthy Widow, but the Old Man's Will is Likely to Leave Them With Scarcely More Than the Proverbial Shilling. [Alta California.] All ol(1 residents of San Francisco will readily call to mind the extended litiga tion which took place shortly after the 1 death of Horace Hawes, Sr., in 1870. He left a will bequeathing to his heirs proper ty val i'd at $5,000,000.
