The first race fur the cup, now
known as the America's cup, was

'i.;? Yankee boat with the wind free
had shown superiority over the Eng
lish rebels. And when It came to
windward wijlc she proved that she was
equally -up,-t.ur. Mie worked to tlie
wiiu'.wur.l no s peedily that by the time
the point was reached there was not a
yacht in aigut from her decks. The
wind now died down and a strong
head tide was encountered, against
which the America made little head
way. This gave the fleet, which had
not yet caught the full strength of
the tide, a chance to creep up on her.
The lit : e entter Aurora and the cutter
Arrow nea.'y caught up -with the
America, but the rest of the fleets were
miles astern. At St. Catherine's the
Arrow went aground and was out of
the rac-. but thfr little Aurora clung
to the America admirably.' The wind
now freshened again and the America
ilrew away rapidly from her plucky
little rival. After getting by St.
Catherine's tho America had a leading
wind, and easing off her sheet.-, tore
through the water in magnificent
style and swept toward Cowes, a re
markable winner. The defeated Eng-
hVh yachts were two davs altogether
in getting into port. The dismay of
the Luplish yachtsmen and all Great
l.ntaia ct the temble defeat given by
the little black Yankee is almost a
matter of international history.
Commodore Stevens had tried be
fore the big race for a match very hard
and had posted in the Royal squadron's
castle a challenge to sail against any
yacht for from one thousand to ten;
thousand guineas, but the English
were afraid of the Yankee from his
first appearance and the challenge was
never accepted. t

1858 upon the ehonges which huvo made
"Hnussmaunhiing" a term to Bignify
the complete transformation of a city
from atre, dirt, crookedness and squalor
to freshness, cleanliness, convenience
and splendor. Some have said that the
idea oi these unexampled improvements
in its main outlines belonged to Napo

with which they were uehieved were
such as to almost entitle Hanssmann to
be called great New hoidevurds, out
