Yesterday's races were as successful as could have been expected under the circumstances. A chilling drizzle does not furnish the most encouraging weather for a successful scratch race, where fun and excitement are chiefly looked for. Nevertheless the contest of the senior eights yesterday excited considerable interest and enthusiasm. The single scull contest was not so well carried out, but nevertheless was watched with interest. One of the (usually) most amusing features of the day was necessarily postponed till next Saturday, viz., the contest of the freshman eights. The success of the day, as a whole, under the adverse circumstances, demonstrates, we believe, the wisdom and advisability of permanently re-establishing these contests in the fall. Affording as they usually do considerable amusement to both spectators and participants, their chief value is, as we have before noted, to keep alive throughout the fall general interest in boating on the Charles. We hope they may be continued.
