At S ^o'clock Rev. Dwight Spencer made his report on Home Missions which was followed by addresses upon the Home Mission cause by Kev. L. Kirtley, D. D. and Rev. F. M.

The day could not have been finer yesterday and the track was never in better shape. The members of the association had worked hard for this meeting and white it is not likely that t was their influence which brought he fine weather to them may be attributed the suberb condition of the rack. The attendance while not large was probably as good as might be expected for the first day. To-day the attendance will be trebled and it is believed that 5000 people will witness the day's even.ts. A number of the leading merchants of the city will close their stores in the afternoon that their clerks may see the races without putting up the usual excuse of the death of a grandmother or some other relative. There is a great program for to-day and some races will be run thai will be well worth seeing. YESTERDAY'S EVENTS. The first event of the day was the two-year-old trot for a purse of §100.
