AMERICA CUP. PINAL DEFEAT OF THE SHAMROCK. The long, tiresome contest for the America's Cap ended on October 20 with an unexpectedly brilliant and esciting race, in which Columbia proved victorious, fairly and squarely beating her British rival. All America is rejoicing that the cup is again safe, and that Sir Thomas Lipton has failed in his efforts to lift it. It was ideal racing weather. The day was bright, ir bracing, and clear, with a spanking north-north- east breeze blowing at the rate .of 22 miles, and kick- ing up white caps on the surface of the water. Sir Thomas Lipton had at last got the weather he longed for, and as he stood on the deck of the Erin, he expressed the optimistic belief that Shamrock would prove the winner. The excursion steamers were again packed, and the excitement of the yachting enthusiasts became intense as the wind increased and gave the assurance Of a lively race. The crews of both yachts were early aetir, every- thing was in readiness, and when the signal was fired at eleven o'clock tho two beats darted ahead with their masses of canvas stretched before the wind. Shamrock crossed the line a minute before Columbia, and gained- the lead, which she gradually increased. The course was 15 miles windward, or leeward,i and return. Shamrock was for„#ome time consider- ably ahead, but eventually the defender passed her zival, and finished five minutes and 17 seconds ahead.
