THE ATLANTIC YAC3T RACE. We congratulate readers of newspapers in t iis country and America on the tact that the preliminary corres- pondence on the proposed Atlantic Yacht Knee is at At end, and with a resnlt. The race will tfke place on th 4th of July, from Old Kinsale Head, Ireland, to New York. The owner of the CtlTl"rh, ms is manifest in h letters, was anxious to start from Cowes, but the nwnei of the Dauntless was obdurate, and it became eviden- that, if Mr Aqhhnry did not conoede every point, thf American gentlemnn wou'd again decline the contest For our own parI, All we have said on previouq occasion1, we ùo not regard Quch a race ItB 1. sitisfactory means 0' testing the relative merits of English and American yachts. We would much prefer such contests as tho" in which we were unmistakably beaten by the yacht America in vears g. ne by; but, as the Amaricans show so determined a pi eference for these prolonged and tiP. certain courses, we rre giad to see that an entire con- cession to every wish has been tna<?e in order that the proposition may be carried intn actnat effect. It is satis- factory, however, to know that there is every prospect of matches of a more decisive and reliable character taking place on the other sido of the Atlantic bc'w^en the Cambria and Am'T'cxn yachts, under such condi- tions as will leave no doubt as to the respective merit" of the yachts of each nation. We do not await the result with any degree of anxiety, and would givr pre- ference to no English ycht before the Cambria to mak syCh an essay as she is about to undertake. We will tpare our readers any remarks upon the wearying corres- pondence which we and our contemporaries have pub- lished relating to the challenge* and upon the probable ebances and results of the contests. The whole sut.jpct has been before us perpetually for more than tweive months, and a complete rest of six months is absolutely necessary to give to it zest and freshness. We cao oniyeay, without fear of any charge of undue partiality, that, so fur as we canjufige. Mr Ar.hbury has ftefrfffed in a straightforward manner throughout this a'fflj^t iiYfeflWirtable correspondence, and exhibited a steady desire to hstve firther and more satisfactory contents with I rm^atlantifi f&c.fit* thrift a single race across the occsn to New York.âThe Fie{rf;
