OUTDOOR SPORTS. Great Increase and Improvement in Racing and Trotting Horses. POLO AND COACHING. Yachting, Boating, Base Ball, Foot Ball and Other Games. Tho retard of sporting events In tills country during the past year exhibit* u grout advance on preceding years With the tasto for outdoor and manly aruusoaients has come a disposition among the best and wealthest ol our citizens to apply their means and personal Influence to lorwar i among the rest ot the nohlo j pastimes that of horse racing, until It bocomes as familiar to tho people as the l?erby or the Newmarket races in England. Horse racing on the present so.alo Is comparatively new lo this country, but it is rapidly attracting the interest and attention ol many ol our most foremost citizens, aud it is such a sport as cnlisls tho feelings ol tho great majority of men, and in our work a-day world whatever takes away front tho morbid pursuit ol dollars and cents aud gives us manly and healthful amusement should be greeted with acclamation. The year now drawing to a close has been fraught with important outdoor sporting events. Easter timo has not only been made by our racehorses, both runners and trotters, than ever before, but wc have theiu in greater numbers. New games have been Introduced ind old ones improvod; and It is now cvideut that the interest taken by the youth ol ibe country in manly ?ports must he of great advantage to thent in physical development. The sporting history of America has kept well abreast with ibo growth of tho nation. It ncods no long memory to recoil tho birth and growth of every outdoor sport that is now indulged In; .vet lew who gave in pust years an earnest thought to the progress ot manly sports on this continent would have dared to predict the vast strides that have boon accomplished up to the present time. In a short lifetime a pastnno formerly conllucd to a fewMates of tho Union hns como to embrace nearly all, uud the ennobling amusement of Ihoturf Is now universally sought after by all classes or our people Together wnh the turf, both running and trolling, tho polo and coaching clubs, devoted to pleasurable riding aud driving, buvo Increased in numbers, aud are at the present time making new acqulsitions to their spirited horses and elegant drags. Yachting, rowing, football, bill, handball, pigeon shooting, fo\ hunting uud every Imaginable sport rouduclvo to health bus been vigorously indulged In during tho present year. Among tho mauv graud rucing events the best by all ?dds has been tho great perlortuanco ol Mr. E. 11. Harper's bay colt Ton Hroeck, t.y imported I'bnoton, dam Fanny Uoiton, by Lexington, four years old. He bns beaten tho record ol Lexington, that stood at ibo head ol fas', time lor nineteen years, four sec ouds. and Eellowcraft's time Hireo and three-quarter ?econds, tnuking the lour miles, apparently with great ?aso. in 7:15?4. Besides tho great perormance of Tcu Hroeck with j|r. Crouso's >ay colt Add at lour miles, he ran three nibs with tho sarno luirso tho week previous in 1:-'<VS, which was half a sccoud (aster than tho tirao lad ever boon made in before. Ton Ilrocck was, howiver, beaten onro during the year, and that was nt Lexington at the May meeting, when Ariatidca, by Leamington, d im Sarong, defeated bun in a raco of Iwo miles and an eighth in the fastest time at that dislunco ever made, viz. :?'P-IA1,. Aristules was theu brought East, and soon afterward went amiss and it is very doubt!tiI if ho ever again appears on tho turf. With Ten Hroeck and Arlslldes Tom Ochiltree's nanto icicrves a place, as he also has made bis mark during -be racing season. Ho won many good races, and was ?oaien hut twice?once by Parole at a mile and a juartcr and again ny Ad I lu a raco of two mile heats ind in both instances lorn was certainly "oil".'' His owner, Mr. George l.orillard, after tho autumn meeting at Jerome Park, nilered to match Tom Ochiltree against Ten Hroeck. lor #10,000 a side, a dash ? lour miles, the race to bo run at an extra meeiing at fcrotne Park, but Mr. Harper refused the oflcr, and ?xcuscd himself behind the silly pretext of loar of inury to his horso should he *eud him over tho Alio(haDie* to run the match. Tom Ochiltree has proved hinuell a capital racehorse at ad distances, by beating ill the horses he has ruu against with the exception of idd, and thero is no doubt luat should tlioy meet igain, bo.h well, Tom Ociilltrco will prove the winner, is he was uot ln.nsell when lie ran ag.nost Add In he race. The lost raco of the year that Ochiltree nailo was lor the Centennial Cup, at Jorutnc Park luring the autumn meeting, wbeu he beat Acrobat,' Big .-amy and D'Artiguan at lour nulus m a b'g !?liep. Acrobat had run ? good race at Long Branch >1 lour mi e* heals previously, distancing Coioucl Velligan and Busy Hoc m the first heat, aud Chesapeake- In tho sccoud very easily; but when he met Torn deli ill rec ho was just as easily disposed of by the big horso as tho others were by him. Auron Pennington ran some capital races iu the early part of the season, hut he broko down at Saratoga alter beating Prcsion a two milc- iash, carrying 117 lbs., in 3:;i3't. Of the throe-year olds, Vigil finished the racing leason with the greatest trial, by winning the Breckinridge and Dixie slakes at Baltimore and by beating 5t. Martins at tho extra meeting at Jerome Park, the ast being ono of tbo gamest contests that was ever ?un. the whole of tho last milo being a driv no affair, ind Vigil was whipped und spurred at every jump lor seurly hall a mile, llo responded gamely to the perluasiun and won tho raco by a head. Vigil, liko Ten Broeck, began tbo season without being up to tho mark in condition, ran himself into perfect order by his several engagements, and seemed to be unbcaUblo it tho termination ol the racing season. The other roil g..od three-year-olds ol the year were Fiddlestick*, by Lexington, dam Filigree; Brother ol Hassen, by Uxingion, d im Canary Bin; Fultana, by LcxIngton, dam Mildred; Bertram, by Kentucky, dum lUrmce; Algcrine, by And el-Kuder, dam Nina; ?reedmore, by Asteroid, dam Target; Vagrant, by .rgil, dam Laiy ; Parole, by Leamington, dnui Maiden; Pcra, bv Leamington, dam Maggie B.

TH8 FAST THOTTKItS hare increased duriug the present year wonderfully, the most extraordinary one being Great Eastern, who mnao Uits flrst appearance on the track this soa-on at Rochester, on August 11, where be inado himself famous by winntug the flrst heat ol the race in2:10 and the other two bents in 2:21 and2:21 .V IIo afterward trotted in 2:20'j at Ullca.

Ho was foaled October 10. 18(19. This horse will have lo lake his place neat year in the froelor all class, with the little queen of tho trotting turf, Goldsmith Maid, who, notwithstanding her great age, still leads the van in nearly every action she la oDguged in. She hasbceu beaten this year by Smuggler, but for oiio Oliver alio gavu him hall a uozen Rolands. Another pbeuomeuon that 1ms sprung Into notico this year is the old City Sudlo Hell, the winner ol iho Republic race, at I'hiladolphia, for four-year-olds, at the breeders' Centennial at that place Septomber 20. She was bred In a part of the country that has not been distinguished lor the development of trolturs?on tho coast o? \ irginia?by n gentleman named Duncan, whoso farm is ou a IHHo Island off the pentns.ula formed by Accomac nud Northampton Counties. Her dam was worked on Mr. Duncan's farm and ol whoso breeding nothing Is absolutely known. Her sire was called Odon ltcll. When three | years old Sadie was taken up. broken to harness and | put to the plough. She was not destined, however, lor | such drudgery, and soou began to show speed. Alter changing owners, at lour years old, she was brought ou tho track, aud made her flrst appearance at Ltiucaster, I'a., on September 5 of the present yeur, making a heat in 2:39. On .September 13, at Point Breeze, sho trotted in 2:32X, 2:32, 2:33, which was considered about the host sustained perlormanco of a four-yearold. On account o! this line display o! Bpeod sho was made tho favorite lor the Centennial raco, notwltlistanuing sho hod lor opponents such good ones us Woodford Chief, Montezuma, I.ady l'alclien, Echuru, Post Boy and Girl F.. Quocn. Sadie Bell won iho flrst, second and lourlh beats, the third heat being won Dy Woodford Chief. Tho tirao was 2:34, 2:34',, 2:34. Sadie Bell stands fifteen hunds ono Inch high aud Is rather lightly built. Her color is a cream chestnut, with a flaxen mano and fill Sho has a good bead, with considerable brain development, and a neat sot of rather lengthy limb^ Her quarters aro strong, but her hips are very ragged. Sho goes very wide bebtud when going at full speed. Sadie Bell has a bright career before hor, as she must naturally incroaso hor speed and becotno very lust with age. Blackwood, Jr., Is anothor grand specimen or tho trotting horso that has showo up for the first time. Ho Is sixteen and a half hands high, of magnificent conformation and speed equal to 2:20 on a fair track. Ilo trotted at Philadelphia at the Breeders' Mooting and won the National Stailion Cup in 2:23 and tho second mile in 2:23Tho handsome maimer in which he did tho work filled the public eyo with admiration, as the wind was blowing a gale at Hie time and tho track was not fa?t. Blackwood, Jr., is six yoars old, and will, no doubt, become faster with age. During the septilateral circuit of last summer a prcnt maDy trotting horses lowered their rocord.

By tho ab ive list ol records it will be seen that tbo trotting horsesor America are notonly In1 in speed, but they are increasing in numbers most rapidly, and consequently adding great wealth to the country by their increased value. polo. The highly exciting gamo ol polo, Inaugurated by the formation of the Westchester Club, during the preaent year has become quite popular, and other clubs are forming all over the country. Boston ha* one club, Hartioril another, Chicago two elubs, Texas one and Calilornla one, which is now in this city, headed by Captain Mowry. the celebrated long diplauco rider. Gentlemen in other cities arc purchasing mallets una balls to practice and learn the game, with a view to the lormattou ol clubs. The Westchostor Club have bccomo very prollcicnl in the game and can cope with any polo players In this or any other country. Vbe Boston Club have also becomo very expert players and they will play tho Californiana at tho Hippodrome on Thursday evening next, when the public will have an opportunity to witness Ihe gamo by most excollent players. Iho Texas players have a great advantage over tho clubs In this part ol tho country, as ihoy have the best ponies for the purpose at their very doors aud can possess themselves of the cholcosl at a small expense. COACU1XO bas also become vory popular, and many gentlemen are Indulging in that kind of healthy and exhilarating enjoyment. The Coaching Club of this city lias made several flue displays during tho year, their somi-annual parades giving great pleasure to the beholders, and it has been pleasing to witness tho delight pooplo expressed at the starts and returns of Mr. Kane's coach iroin the Hotel Brunswick during tho coacbiug season. Wo learn that a great acquisition is boing made ti> tho Coaching Club of tuis city, and new coaches are being built lor tlio club, *o that at me next regular pnrado of Hie club tlio numbers will lie largely Increased. yachtiso. From the opening In May, when the miniature yachts on 1'rospcct Park Like drew crowds of spec tators, through the numerous regattas, cruises, cup contests, matches snd Corinthian races, the season was exceptionally brilliant. The most Important events were the following:-Tho annual regalias of tho New York. Brooklyn, Atlantic and Seawauhuku clubs, tho Corinthian races, and the ocean schooner regatta or tho Heawenhnka. and tho Centennial regatta in New York harbor, open to yachts of all nations. Then tbo i annual crnisot of iho Brooklyn, Atlantic and New 1 York clubs. The latter was conspicuous from tho fact that the yachts cruised furtner to the eastward and kept together as a squadron longer than ever before. Ou<< of tho exciting events of the year was the race for Iho queen's Cup, In Now York harbor, by tho Countess ol DuffertB and the Madeleine. The latter was victorious. Tho fall regattas were by tho New York, Bayoune, Williamsburg. Long Island and other clubs. Next followed the Centennial regatta to Cape May and back from New York harbor. Thou the Bennett Challenge Cup race from Sandy Hook Light to Brenton's Heel Light and return. Tho cup waa won In me Idler. A not iblo ovout during tlio summer ' w as tho trip of the Seawanhaka Club to tho Contennlal at rhilidoipola. Tbo minor clube each bad Us annual | regatta, and hi sev< ral Instauica Corinthian races. The champion pennant races of tho Brooklyn and AtInnlicclubs were interesting, and a littiug wind up of tho season's work. Tho vory last evsnt. however, was the race lor the Loubal Cup from sandy Hook Ligbt to Capo May and rot urn. Tho Idler and AlalanU, | of lbs New York Yacht Club, were tho only contestants, and the race was won by the Atalanta. In open and medium ai/.od boats greater speed has been obtuined this year than over before. noAtixo. Among the chicr events of tho boating soason wero the vielories of tho Yale, Bcaverwyck, Northwestern, Neptune. Atalanta and Sbo-wa-ca-mtlte rowing clubs st fprmgdehl, Philadelphia, Harlem, Mlrhigan sud Greenwood Lake I he Atalanta Club opened the boatI lug season proper ou tho Harlem River, and with tho | exception ot one race swept tho tloid. At 8arat"ga I Liko the AUlanu four, expecting to head the lisi, were beaten unexpectedly by the Northwestern hdJ ' ftho-Vra-oa-tncito crews. At tins n-gstta mo hardest | end best rowing ever achieved in tins country was dono iu every stylo of rowing James I'l'ey, ,n slng'o sculls, not only heat Courtney's beet time over the ?mo course, but made tho faetest two-fctlo time en record. !o double sru'ls the Neptune reprcseuiatlves, Riley and Kcatur, also distingu shed themselvos by coming in second to tho lumen* Courtney and Yates crew. Tho regattas on the Schuylkill, both national and International, were unsatisfactory In many respects. Yhere was no reason why they should not have been tho most successlul ever hold lu tho United States. The Yale lour showed its pluck, molllo and grit when plttcu against the lamous I,on ion (towing Club tour, and gave that crew the closest and hardest race ot tho regatta. Though tho Beaverwyck crew subsequently beat tho Londoners, tbero is no doubt that tho Yale rneu could "get away with" the Albanians In a throe rail# contest. Tho Columbia College crew, unfortunate all through the seasoo, mado a good display against the mishaps which belell the lour and six in nearly all tho races they entered. Courtney sustained his previous reputation of being a hard man to heal. No one has yot been able to get nour enough to biin to Know how fust ho cm make a boat travel. In the beginning of theseasona New York crew, ol which John Biglin was stroke, promised well. At an ourlv stage of their training they boat, with case, the well kuown Faulk- ] ner-Kcagan crew, which Uostomaus considered well nigh invinuihlo. This crew was brokon up by the defection of CigliQ and bis withdrawal Irom the crew previous to tho contest. The Halifax men, though they lost the championship of the world on tho Schuylkill, proved their ability, by their fine rowing, to bo able to contest tho claim of those who wou it. The last regatta of the season was held at (ireenwood I..ike. It tended to show tho rowing strength of the Neptui.e Bowing club. It was bore Julian Kennedy and .lames Kilcy appeared for tho first tlmo In pairs, and surprised every one. They are today the most formidable pair in the country. In the professional race on the same lake I'luislcd proved that, as a sculler, whoever will beat him will itavo to row fast. The season, taken altogether, was a busy one. New crews and new scullers came to the front. In competition with tho lorcigu oarsmen it was found that the Americans had rnstly improved In tho lust lew years, and should a crew or sculler be sent Irom this coumry next year or tho year after to England, which is not unlikely, there will he less reason to apprehend dufcal than (here has been In years gone by. IIASF. IIAI.L has had Its votaries, hut it has not neon as popular with the musseB during tho present as it was the year or two previously, and this lulling off In popularity has been occasioned by tho mismanagement ol those who have had tho various clubs in cbargo. They bavo been offering premiums lor tho best players, and paying salaries and giving political olUccs to players to Icavo one club to go to another, and soino of theso paid experts have been suspected ol speculating in defeats. It is hoped that m-xl year a revising ol the players in the several clubs will Insuro conQdoeco with the public, nnd that the "nutoual game" will bo as popular as it was a tow years ago and should ever be. Tho National lia.-o Hull League has jast finished its session at Cloavelnud, Ohio, and all tho world aro anxious to know what has been done In tho shape ol reform. FOOTBALL. A now pastime has just taken possession of the youth of our land, although it has been indulged in for centuries in the Old World. We allude to tho gutuo ol football, one ol the most exciting and healthful pastimes that our young men can indulge in. Our oolicgians have adopted tho Kucby rules, and hcncelorlb we may expect to witness the game on all ibo vacant Oelds on the outskirts ol our cttios. The above modes of strengthening the human Irame nnd insuring longevity wo hopo to sec encouraged Irom ono cud of tho country to too otbor. But there itro many other ways ot taking healthful cxorciso than those enumerated above, which cau betaken by those who cannot get out ol tho city to eujoy the lrcsh air?dumbbells, Indtau clubs, boxing, dancing, the skipping ropo and muny other ways in which tho muscles can he developed, the clio.U expanded and tho general health ol man and woman improved and preserved, which, without cxerclsos soon goes to decay. FOOTBALL. AN EXCITING GAME WITH THE THERMOMETER FOURTEEN DEGREES BELOW THE FREEZING TOINT?YALE VS. COLUMBIA?TALE THE WINNER. With tho fhermometor fourteen or mors degrees below the freezing point, the wind blowing a gale from the north, and the ground being hard as Iron, the inateh game ot football between the teams of Columbia and Vale colleges came to an tssuo yesterday afternoon ou the St. George's Cricket Club enclosure at llobokcn, resulting in favor or Yalo by two goals to none. That this exciting pastime Is becoming very popular anil possesses attractions tlint, detpite ibo supremacy ol all other outdo >r sports, needs no stronger proof than that for two hours during the progress ol the game of yosteruay some tbrco hundred spectators, including two or tbrco ladies, remained on the ground to witness the strugat the expenso ol irozon cars and feet and hands. To keep warm, whatever the clothing worn, was Impossible. Foot races wcro improvised, jig dunces and stamping matches indulged in, but all to no purpose, aud everybody remained disagreeably cold. Tho game was played by elercu on a side, and the Rugby Union rules governed. Vale with tbo same magnificently apportioned team, with but a single exception, that taught Harvard and Princeton lessons not easily (orgolten, catuo to the ground in curriagcs, finding the Columbia representatives roady to receive them. The Yorkers lacked the physical beauiy and the muscle ol their oppuuenis, and they were also wanting in the shrewd, ncss and In the science which the Netv Haven lads brougnt to bear when ibey wcro In tight places. Since Vale adopted the Kngby Union provisions as now played by the leadiug collcgo clubs she has never becu doieutod, wntlo justice compols tho statement that Columbia made a stubborn and creditable defence yesterd y, considering tbo limited practice tbo team has bad. nttsr UOAI.. Shortly alter three o'clock me field was covered with dancing athletes, clad in llstors and lur caps and gloves, but "lime ' called superfluous clothing was dropped into hanus of trlends among the crowd of spectators, nud tho liluo and white uniforms of the i layers?both teams dressing almost alike?preMoiled a peculiar appearance in the iicnuinoiug atmosphere. There was a moment's hesitation and "Nlart it:"' "Don't let us Ireezo!" came from the rvenvytwo thinly-clud gentlemen, when, at a quarter i ast three P. M., the releree shouted "Roady!" Columbia liud wou tho toss nod elected thut Yale should kick oil against the rushing wind.

A progress lrotn 56 4 to 57 and back again to 56 ? where it halted finally, gave sufficient opportunity lor another day's milking, which the big operators pushed to their advantago aud the little ones submitted to with the Idiotic meekness tnat disungulsues them. To make the performance moro attractive It was whispered that the railroad poople wcro again putting their heads together In hopes that their united wisdom might cvolvo some plan of settlement, aud lator on it was announced that nothing had come of the opposition but tho usual agreement to dlsa.roe. s Tho lact appears to bo that no meeting whatever bad taken place and that the whole siory was merely a furbishing up of tho old bait to caich gudgeons, which has been so successfully set on former occasious. llut, unlike the preceding days of tbo week, the entiro Interest or the market was not confined to tbo lavorIte. Although the main show was as attractive as over there woro somo new and unexpected annexes opened to speculative oxanimation, which invited and merited attention.

By somo the activity was thought to be a diversion in favor-ot tho I.bko Shore speculation, and by others II was attributed to the flattering reports ot the comp,my's earnings, which for tho last quarter are said to be immense, being in figures something like $1,500,000 surplus ovor and abovo tho dividend.
