GRAND M U S l" cT L CONGRESS, To commence on FRIDAY, June 12th, 1867, And continue for Ten Days during THE HANDEL FESTIVAL. The great number of artistes of European renown that will be assembled in London to take part in or be present at the Handel 1 es- tiva!, has encouraged M Jullien, to avail himself of an occasion so propitious, by repeating one of those great Musical FStes, in the style of bis first Concert Monstre at Paris in 1836, his CongrSs Musical at the Crystal Palace, New York, in July, 1854, and his Grand Inauguration Festival at the Royal Surrey Gardens, in July, 1856. It was on this last occasion that M. Jullien had the idea of assembling ia London, for the first time, deputations from all the leading Musical Associations and Cathedral Choirs ef England, Scotland, Ireland, and the Con'inent, to the number of one thousand performers. The result produced by such a choice and numerous assemblage of talent was most satisfactory, and musical amateurs, the public, and the press unanimously pronounced the festival to have been the greatest musical performance m London since the Handel Festival at Westminster Abbey in 1834. The Festival, which will last ten days, wfll commence with the pro- duction ef Haydn's oratorio," The Creation." This wiil be succeeded by Mendelssohn's oratorio, " Elijah," and by Haydn's " Seasons," in four parts," Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter," generally considered his finest composition. The revival of this last work has just taken place at Vienna, Berlin, and Paris, and is creating an unparalleled sensation among the musical population of those capitals ; the performances having been repeated several times in presence of the respective Sove- reigns, the courts, and the elite of the nobility and amateurs. These will be followed by a Rossini Festival, selected from Mose in Egitto," " Stabat Mater," and " Guillaume Tell," and a Verdi Festival, with selections trom " Nabuco," " Les Vfipres Siciliennes," " I Lom- bardi," " Ernani," " La Traviata," " II Trovatore." After them will be given a Beethoven Night, a Mendelssohn Night, and a Mozart Night, on a scale even greater and more periect than those classical evenings which M Jullien has introduced each season for seventeen years, and which have always met with universal approbation; and the festival will con- clude with a grand performance of Hansel's oratorio, " The Messiah." M Jullien is not without hope that his musical friends in London and from the provinces, the Continent, aud the United States, who, for the last 25 years have aided and supported his various artistic enterprises, will,- after having assisted at the morning performances at the Crystal Palace, give a few of their leisure hours during that season of festivity, and repair in the evening to the Hall of the Royal Surrey Gardens, a building erected expre3sly for music, capable of containing 10,000 persons, Mid pronounced to be the best room in the United Kingdom for acoustic purposes. This Orchestra of Mi Jullien, which, in his late triumphant musical tour on the Continent, was admitted to be the first in Europe, is of course to be heard only at his concerts, and none of its members have accepted, or can aceept, an engagement to perform elsewhere. Amongst the number, whose reputation is European, some may be cited without a rival on their respective instruments, as Herr Kcenig, M Duheme, Mr Hughes, M Lavigne, M Collinet, Herr Stumpt, Herr Schreurs, & c, & c. This orchestra will be increased in number for the Musical Congress, by several celebrities from the Academies and Conservatoires of Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam, Engagements are pending with all the great artistes present in London at this most extraordinary musical epoch, and in these engagements, as in all others which M Jullien has made for his concerts, the real and in- dividual merit of the artistes has been considered in preference to their feme and reputation. However, in the following list of those whose ser- vices have already been secured, it will be seen that a great name has been considered no objection when united to a great talent. The great soprano, Madame GASSIER, Who is recognised, by those who are capable of judging, as the artiste who plays best on that most periect of ali instruments, the human voice. The accomplished German soprano, Madame RUDERSDORFF. The popular English soprano, Miss LOUISA VINNING, Madame FIORENTINI, ( Her first appearance since last season). Madame CARADORI, Miss STABBACH, Madame WEISS, The new celebrated Swedish singer, Mdlle WESTERSTRAND, and Miss DOLBY. Also, Miss ARABELLA GODDARD, Mr SIMS REEVES. Herr REICHARDT, Mr G. PERREN, Mr WEISS, Hons GASSIER, < Stc, & c, & c. Also with Herr ERNST, Signor DE BAZZINI, Signor PIATTI, Signor ANDREOLI, and Signor SIVORI. THE CHORAL ARRANGEMENTS, Under the direction of Mr LAND, will be on a grand scale, and include the ROYAL SURREY CHORAL SOCIETY— the freshness of whose voices and purity of intonation, as well as perfect ensemble attained in so short a period from its organisa- tion, have been unanimously acknowledged. Leaders: Mr WILLY ( Of the two Philharmonic Societies), Mons PORTEHAUT ( From the Imperial Academy, Paris), and Herr KCENIG. Conductors: Mr A. MELLON fcOf the Royal Italian Opera and the Orchestral Union). Signor BOTTESSINI ( Conductor of the Imperial Italian Opera, Paris), and Mons JULLIEN. The names of other artistes, with whom engagements are pending, will be advertised ia the programmes ; but the public is requested not to expect a multitude of names, as, in the organisation of this undertaking, quality has been preferred to quantity. ADMISSION, ONE SHILLING. Private boxes, stalls, and reserved seats to be secured at Jullien's, 214, Regent- street; Keith, Prowse, and Co's, Cheapside; and at the office of the gardens. The concert will commence each evening at 8 o'clock. GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY.— Ascot Races. - On Tuesday and Thursday, June 9 and 11, SPECIAL TRAINS wiil run between Paddington and WINDSOR.

Bolton— No further notice is re- quired than that which stands at theheadofourCrieketingColumn, which is plain enough to suit all capacities. BILLIARDS. P Y W K— The practice is different in different places, but the whole- some practice is that misi akes in the score may be corrected by any bystander. Non- interference ap- plies to advice to the ; players, which of course is unlawful. Juno— It is as frequently called one as the other, there is no rule. We have generally been accustomed to" call the spot end the bottom of the table. Jemmy Magrath— See Juno.

We wish every success to your projected work on " The Anatomy and Senses of Fish." A K M— Mr Alfred Gould, fishing- tackle maker, of 30, Great Mary- street, Cavendish- square, is the right person to apply to. Ha knows all about the West- end angling clubs, and belongs to one of the best of them. J T T— It has begun already. The other question Mr Frederick Allies, fishing- tackle maker, of Worcester, and inventor or the celebrated " ArchimsJian Min- now," will solve for you. Con- sult also a book upon Wales, written by Mr Cliff, the editor of either a ; Worcestershire or Glou- cestershire newspaper. Weybridge— The puntman of this place who complains of havini been unjustly convicted of allegei illegal netting, has not sent his name. His defence of himself i- s therefore useless. Is it one of the Keeng? If so, we hardly think any of the family would be guilty of poaching. G. Green— Your question is a puz- zler, to wit, the weight of the largest turtle ever caught. Con- sult the Messrs Staples, of the renowned " Albion," Alders; jate- street, or the very learned ( in all things), Mr Alderman Wire.

Surely there must be a veterinary surgeon in Liver- pool who could undertake the cure, and if the dog is valuable it will be much better to pay a com- petent person than to doctor him yourself.

REGISTRATION OF TITLE TO LAND. 1 The Report of the Commissioners on this subject is now p* b- ished. It is welcome, as recommending some registration at all events. But we confess to our fear whether the sort of regis- tration recommended in the report wjll effect what is really required. The Commissioners propose to institute a regis- tration for the fee simple title, but no more. Now what the public require to be guarded against is, the misappli- cation of this possessory title to purposes little if at all short of fraudulent. A man may be entitled to register himself as the owner of the fee simple, though he has mortgaged It in succession to half the letters of the alphabet, and the evil of this insufficient registration will be, that if he thought fit to try to mortgage it again to the rest of the letters of the alphabet, no one of the persons represented by those letters could know from an authentic and authoritative record the mortgages which had bsen already made upon it. Mr Wil- son, one of the Commissioners, who has so much differed from his brother Commissioners that he has not ( like three of them) added a " memorandum " of dissent, but has actually not signed the Report at all, proposes a scheme of registration which shall show the burdens on the property as well as the title to it. We confess to our preference for this scheme. It would make deal- ings in land sal'e, and would thereby at once increase the value of the land, and the readiness with which money might be advanced upon it. The scheme of the Report is not a remedy for existing evils, but merely a palliative. That of Mr Wilson is a remedy. INSECURITY OF PERSONS IN FRANCE. An act of the French Government, which is recorded in our foreign intelligence, is of a kind that ought not to be allowed to pass without a protest from all the civilised nations of Europe* An Italian gentleman, for no other cause than that he is a strong anti- Muratist, is, suddenly seized and carried off, not to a jail, but to a madhouse. There, it seems, he might have lain till madness had actually supervened, and given an excuse for his detention, or till death had released him from his sufferings. Some one with the feelings of a man must have betrayed this act of diabolism, and the gentleman's condition being thus made known, he was released. It would have been too bold a step to continue so wicked a piece of tyranny. The subjects of every foreign State resident in Paris were struck at by this blow. If the Government, or any section of it, could seize an Italian, and without lawful cause thus cruelly immure him in a mad house, it could do the same with the native of any other State. Against such a state of things, such a savage abuse of power, all Europe ought to declare itself. The truth is, that there is not in Prance, any more than in any other country despotically go- verned, the least degree of security for personal freedom or for justice. There is no law which compels the Government to bring a direct accusation against any person whose arrest it has ordered or permitted, or to bring him to trial after an accusa- tion ; and in this case, but for the pressure of opinion, and the shame which such a scandalous act occasioned, the unfortunate and much- wronged gentleman might have been confined for years in the terrible abodes of the insane. It is hardly possible to believe that the Emperor could have sanctioned this shame- ful proceeding. But as the laws of France afford no remedy against a tyrannical official, no one can be assured on this point unless the Emperor shall inquire into the disgraceful matter, discover the real offender, and punish him. THE DIVORCE BILL. The country has reason to rejoice that Lord Brougham has returned to his place in Parliament. He took the first opportu- nity to declare that he deemed the abolition of the action for criminal conversation a great mistake. He saw that it had been abolished by what was called an amendment, but that never had he word amendment been more misapplied. It is possible that under his lordship's advice Parliament may correct the enor- mous blunder it has made. The pretence for the change is two- fold. First, it is said that the action occasions very disgusting details to be published; the answer is, that in a prosecution these disgusting details must be given with at least equal mi- nuteness. Then, it is said that in an action the wife is wholly unprotected, and that a husband and his friend may collusively get up a case, try an action, ruin the wife's fame for ever, and yet she may be entirely innocent. To remedy this evil a prosecution is to be instituted, iu which, however, the wife will be no more protected than she is in the action. Was there ever such an inapplicable remedy for such an evil ? We believe that a prosecution for a misdemeanour will be found to be a mere sound of fury. To none but men iu the lowest ranks of life will it be formidable. So far the public morality wil not be benefited. The wife assuredly will not be protected. The true remedy for her is that which last week we suggested. The action should continue; tho wife should be made a substantive party to it, and her costs should be made to depend on the spsult-; the judge ( subject to a motion to the full court) having power to direct what costs, if any, should be paid, and by whom, and in what proportions, so that husband, or de- fendant, or both, might be called on to contribute. If protec- tion to a possibly innocent woman is what the Lords really want, this is the true way to secure it to her. RETURN OP THE COURT PROM OSBORNE.— On Thursday, her Majesty and the royal family returned to town from Osborne by the South Western Railway. The royal party reached Vauxhall at five miuutes past seven. VISIT OF THE GRAND DUKE CONSTANTINE TO THE QUEEN. — The Grand Duke Constantino of Russia arrived at Osborne on Saturday week, about two o'clock. The Grand Duke crossed over from Cherbourg in the Admiralty yacht Osborne, on board of which Captain J. H. Seymour, flag- captain at Portsmouth, was in attendance on his imperial highness. The duke dined with her Majesty, and the following day ( Sunday), contrary to all expectation, her Majesty and her royal consort, accompanied by their imperfal visitor the Grand Duke Constantine, took a cruise through the fleet in the royal yacht Victoria and Albert. On the same evening the Duke returned on board the Osborne at eleven o'clock, where he slept, and sailed at ten minutes past five in the morning for Calais. / TEE VICTORIA CROSS.— It is understood the distribution of the Victoria Cross ( the Order of Valour) will take place early in the ensuing month, the precise day not being decided on. Her Majesty will personally award the decoration to those gallant in- dividuals entitled to the honour. The ceremony will take place on the parade in front of the Horse Guards, as was the case when th£ Crimean medals were distributed. WESTMINSTER SCHOOL.— Three new annual exhibitions to the " Universities ( either Oxford or Cambridge) have lately been awarded for the first time. They are open to competition for all boys, whether on the Foundation or not, excepting such as may be elected to studentships of Christ Church, and are, two of them of £ 50, for three years, the third of £ 40, for two years. This will raise the elections to Trinity College, Cambridge, to something of an equality with those to Christ Church, Oxford, in value. " Old Westminsters" will notice with pleasure that the first elections to these Exhibitions have coincided with two first classes in Moderations gained by Westminster students of Christ Church, Messrs. Dickson and Wodehouse. THE CRYSTAL PALACE FLOWER SHOW.— If the condition of the Crystal Palace as a commercial speculation be not so flourishing as to satisfy some of the more unreasonable of its shareholders, that result is by no means to be attributed to the backwardness of its great patrons the public, who flock to their favourite resort whenever the managers exert themselves to get up an attractive bill of fare. Let us take Saturday week iu corrobo- ration of this assertion. The day was fine, and the directors promised a flower show, to be followed by the play of the great fountains, and the result was such a crowd of beauty and fashion as has seldom been collected within auy precincts of similar di- mensions. The railway was kept as busy as if it were a Derby day ; and, truly, the managers ofthe Brighton line seem to have arrived at great proficiency in whirling vast numbers of people to and fro with regularity and safety. Altogether, the fete was one of the most brilliant we have seen foralong time, and proved beyond contradiction that the attachment of the public for their Crystal Palace remains unabated. The flower show was of leviathan pro- portions, containing more specimens than Chiswick, Regent's. Park, and the Surrey Gardens, taken altogether, could exhibit. It is not to be wondered, at, therefore, that on so fine a day as was Saturday week the Crystal Palace should be thronged by au assembly of the first fashion, or that the toilettes should be so gay and costly as to account in some measure for the disposal of all the Australian gold, the mysterious disappearance of which so much puzzles our best economists. Royalty was represented by the Duchesses of Kent and Cambridge, the Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg Strelitz, and Princess Mary. After the flower show came the playing of the fountains, about which there had been a good deal of nervous anxiety, as the envious clouds seemed to threaten a rival display for a considerable part of the afternoon. But happily the sky cleared off just as the grand jet made its appearance, aud the whole played successfully for up- wards of twenty minutes, to the great satisfaction of the com- pany. In addition to the flower show and the fountains, the palace orchestra and two military bands played at frequent intervals. THE TRANSATLANTIC CABLE.— Admiralty instructions were on Tuesday issued to Captain Noddall, in command of her Majesty's screw steam ship Agamemnon, cancelling her recent order to proceed to Birkenhead, and directing that the former order to ship the Transatlantic cable from East Greenwich shall hold good. The United States ship Niagara having been in- spected by Mr Dallas, the American Minister, it was decided that the necessary arrangements should be entered into by the ship- wright department of the dockyard, so as to adapt the vessel for the reception and transport of her intended portion ofthe electric able from Liverpool. THE SCOTHERNE BURGLARY.— Five men, named Enoch Jordan, H< t ry Black, Alexander M'Donald, George Williams, Richard Allsop, and a woman named Mary Brown have under- gone several examinations before the magistrates at Lincoln, charged with having been concerned in the burglary perpe- trated on the premises of Mr Pindar Worth, farmer, at Scotherne, Lincolnshire, early on the morning of the 18th ult. A great deal of evidence was adduced against the prisoners, some of whom were proved to have, been in possession of several of the articles stolen from Mr Worth. All the men were committed for trial, but the woman was discharged. FATAL ACCIDENT ON< THE EASTERN COUNTIES RAILWAY.— On Sunday evening a rnan named James Brookbank, a passenger in one of the Eastern Counties' Railway trains, on reaching the terminus at Shoreditch, jumped out before the train had stopped, and fell between it and the platform, and before he could be released he was crushed nearly to death. He was im- mediately conveyed to the London Hospital, when it was found he had received compound comminuted fractures of the left arm aud legs, dislocation of the patella, and numerous external contusions. The medical officers were unremitting in their attention to the case, but the unfortunate mau expired at seven o'clock on Monday morning. BOAT ACCIDENT AND LOSS OP LIFE.— LEITH, JUNE 2.— On Saturday evening, at about a quarter to ten o'clock, the har- bour- master ( George Stark) received intimation that two lads on the East Pier had seen a boat within the Black Rocks, which suddenly disappeared. The master of the Victor, steam- tug, was at the time inquiring if the harbour- master would allow him to lie where he was. Stark, seeing that her steam was up, immediately supplied himself with life- buoys and started to the scene of the accident. By this time it was so dark that nothing on the surface of the water could be seen, and the attention of the men on board the tug was drawn to the spot by the cries of the men clinging to the bottom of the boat. As soon as the tug got alongside, her boat was launched, and four men were taken on board, all of them in a very exhausted state— Mr Mitchell, tide- surveyor ; R. Wallace, Customs; A. Hall and George Mason, boatmen. Another mau, Joseph Henderson, extra boatman, was under the boat, entangled with the rigging and lifeless ; his body could not then be recovered, although every effort to secure it was made. A sixth man, R. Williamson ( boatman) had, when the boat capsized, stripped himself and swam for the shore, which he reached, but from exhaustion and want of assistance died where he landed. Henderson's body was afterwards washed onshore. Three out of the four men who were taken onboard the tug were more or less insensible, but by dint of friction were eventually restored to consciousness. Supposed cause Of acci- dent— s heavy sea having struck and upset the boat, FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FRANCE. They are preparing for the elections in France. The Presse, splendide mendax, affected to doubt the truth of the assertion of the Independent de I'Ouest, that it had been ordered not to speak on. the subject of the elections. The Siecle also said it was im- possible that the particular jouraal in question could have been the subject of any special prohibition. The fact, however, is true. ThePftare de la Loire and all other journals of Nantes have received a similar interdiction from the prefect. The Presse now admits the fact. The Presse continues to combat the doc- trine of " abstention." The legitimists in Paris pretend that both the Siecle and the Presse are playing into the hands of the Government by recommending a semblance of opposition, which can only serve to make the approaching Governmental triumph more signal. The Republican party is very much divided. The refugee committees both in London and Brussels recommend abstention. The bill voted by the Corps Legislatif for " authorising the Finance Minister to concede the working of the three great lines of steam correspondence between France and America," gives a carte blanche to Government, and it is by no means certain that the Government has yet any clear perception of what it will do. The Journal des Chemins deFer contains the following:—" In a review of the measures adopted, and of the facts which have taken place during the last fifteen months, this journal declared that such measures and facts had had the result of lesseuing the spirit of enterprise which was evidenced by new emissions of shares, and by the creation of additional undertakings. That opinion has called down upon us a warning. M Mirds in conse- quence has thought it his duty to cease signing and directing the Journal des Chemins de Per. The Paris correspondent of The Times says: " An incident of rather a strange character, and which has produced a painful impression among the Italian refugees in Paris, occurred a week or two ago. One of the most eminent of the Italian patriots, and who behaved with remarkable courage during the bombard- ment of Venice— M Joseph Sirtori— suddenly disappeared about the 13th of May last. M Sirtori is, it seems, a decided anti- Muratist, and not long before the slate mentioned had rather a stormy discussion with three Italian gentlemen, also refugees— namely, MM Antonelli, Salicetti, and Maestri, who are, I be- lieve, warm partisans of Priuce Murat. M Sirtori's friouds were naturally surprised at his suddeu and unaccountable disap- pearance, aud made every effort to discover the place of his con- cealment. For some time these efforts were fruitless. After eleven days spent iu much exertion and anxiety, they discovered that M Sirtori had beeu shut up in the lunatic asylum of Bic6tre, where it was impossible for him to communicate . with any one outside. The moment this fact was discovered his friends addressed themselves to the authorities, aud ou their de- mand he was at once restored to liberty. A medical certificate declared that there was nothing the matter with him. Never- theless, I am informed he was subjected to the restraint of a straitwaistcoat for three days. The explanations were, I believe, that a mistake on the part of a sergent- de- viile led to his con- finement. Iu some cases such violence would be likely to cause insanity. M Sirtori bora the outrage committed on him with calm self possession. The affair has been a good deal talked of among tke Italians." BELGIUM. There havebeen riots iu Belgium arising from the desire of the priesthood to rule over the Law and the State. By the new Constitution, all charitable and ecclesiastical bodies in Belgium were declared incapable of holding property. All donations for charitable purposes are obliged to be made to the civil adminis- trators, and their distribution was expressly confined to those functionaries who were amenable to the civil tribunals in the case of malversation. The priestly party introduced a bill by which the discussion of this regulation was endeavoured to be set aside, and ecclesiastical and charitable institutions were to be allowed not only to receive donations of every kind, but donors were to have the power of nominating special trustees for the administration of their bequests and gifts. The old priestly thumb- screw was again to be brought into play, and the terrors of the death- bed, aggravated by the threat of withholding the consolations of religion from the wealthy moribund, were to be used once more as the foundation on which to build the riches of the Church and of its dependent institutions. The people of Brussels, Liege, Antwerp, and other places, not being so priestridden a3 the peasantry, whose representatives had intro- duced this bill, rose in tumult. They shouted for the King and against the bill, and the municipality of Brussels addressed the King to get rid of the mischief by proroguing the Chamber. He has done so. Tranquillity appears to be restored, but a portion of the Civil Guard is still under arms at Brussels, and troops are ready for any emergency. Some seventy persons had been arrested, but the greater number has been set at liberty. At Liege, where the windows of the bishop's palace were smashed by a volley of stones, the excitement is also subsiding. The reports from Mous, Ghent, Antwerp, and other towns in the provinces are also of a tranquillizing nature. At the adjournment of the Chambers ou Saturday at Brussels the President, after reading the decree for the adjournment, proposed three cheers lor the King. The members of the Loft ( the Liberals) rose aud cheered, while the members ofthe Right ( the priest party) did not respond to the appeal. SPAIN. A proposed law for the regulation of newspapers has been laid before the Cortes by the Government of Spain. It is of a very stringent character. No one is to be allowed to publish a political journal who does not pay direct taxes to the amount of 2,000 reals ( 500 francs) in Madrid, or 1,000 reals ( 250 francs) in the provinces. Proof must be given of his having paid such taxes for three years preceding the application to be allowed to set up a paper. Caution money must be deposited to the amount of 300,000 reals ( or 75,000 francs) for a paper published in the capital, and 200,000 reals elsewhere. All articles upon political, religious, or philosophical subjects must be signed with tne author's name. Offences against the law are to be judged by a special tribunal, the proceedings of which will not be allowed to be reported. The penalties to be imposed by this tribunal range from 5,000 reals to 80,000 reals in certain cases. THE PAPAL STATES. The Bologna Gazette publishes a notification, dated Ancona, May 19, announcing the cessation of the state of siege in the Romagna, Ancona, and part of the province of Pesaro, being the only territories where it was still in force. All the prisoners uuder trial by court- martial are to be delivered up to the civil authorities ; but all cases of resistance to the armed force and of offences against the Austrian military are still to be under the cognizance of the Austrian courts- martial. • SWITZERLAND. For the purpose of ratifying the treaty with Prussia the Federal Assembly of Switzerland has been convoked for the 9th June. CHINA. The Times contains the following curious statement of the contents of some Chinese despatches, captured on the destruc- tion of a fleet of junks. In these despatches the " poisoning case" is referred to approvingly, but not so as to implicate the poisoners or to clear them, but the burning of the store of the Englishman who, after their arrest, bought the poisoner's bread and biscuit bakery, and accepted the contracts by which the " devil soldiery" are fed, is tke subject first of a despatch ap- proving the plan, and, when successful, of another avowing and glorying in it. Assassinations, kidnappings, oapture of vessels, are iu like manner planned beforehand, and boasted of after execution. Attempts to commit them and other crimes— amonff which may be mentioned one to destroy a steamer, and several to blow up the buildings and magazines of Victoria with gun- powder, are freely talked of, and their failure or postponement fully explained. The pains which Yeh, as you know, has been taking of late to soothe public feeling at Canton into a belief that the " devils are broken" and " rubbed down," and suing for " leave to ask pardon," are also explained. His exchequer is empty! From the beginning of these troubles he had been obliged to depend upon his " braves," as the " people and gentry" were disinclined to bear the brunt of the action. But the " braves" were not volunteers, and his donations were immense. Further considerable sunn had been lavished on the taking of heads, for the service was a perilous one. To meet all these demands, forced, or else volun- tary subscriptions were offered to the choice of the discerning public; and the result was answerable, but only for a season. The money is all gone. The letter goes on to say:— Crimes and attempts to commit them continue, notwithstanding the an- nounced deficit in Yeh's treasury. Since I last wrote the man- darin's sen, who, having gained admission as a coolie on board of the Gulnare, induced the emigrants to make an endeavour, ail but successful, to murder her officers and crew, and take possession of her, has suffered the last penalty of the law. His seventeen adherents, who are to be transported for life, begged on bended knee that they might die with him. Was this the superstitious influence of their secret association of blood ? Or was it the mere outbreak of the Chinese spirit, ever reckless of life and impatient of servile labour ? I incline to the former solution. The even- handed justice of England within two days after their condemnation fell heavy on an European and his Chinese accomplices, who were tried and convicted in the same court of some very gross and cruel treatment of a large body of Chinese coolies, whom, after deluding into a contract t © go to Cuba, they thought proper to confine, against their wills, for some three weeks in a filthy tenement ashore. But I doubt whether the example has been of benefit to the Chiuese, who do not yet understand the fairness and impartiality of English justice. A most frightful murder has been committed upon one of the most respected and oldest members of the British mercantile community in China— the late Mr Markwich. The old man was found dead in his bed at a very early hour in the morning, with his throat literally torn away by a violent hand. From the articles of spoil found scattered on the floor it is plain that the assassins dreaded a surprise, aud fled before they had time to secure his head as a trophy. They were his own house servants, and had been with him many years. It was to " house servants" that an especial reward had been offered by Yeh for the heads of their masters. It is said that one of the murderers has been secured. NEW ZEALAND. On Thursday evening the packet Oliver Lang, Capt Mundell, belonging to the Black Ball line, arrived in the Mersey. She sailed from New Zealand on the 28th of March. The fourth and last session of the Provincial Council of Auckland termi- nated its sitting on the 20th of February. On the 9th of March the foundation stone of the houses for the general and pro- vincial Legislatures was laid under favourable circumstances. The Rose of Sharon, the Myrtle, and the Monsoon from Lon- don, | and the Indian Queen from Liverpool, had arrived out, and all their passengers of the labouring class had been readily engaged within a short distance of Wellington, and a good demand for a large additional number of labourers still existed. Gold fiad been discovered at Massacre Bay, Nelson, but the yield was not large. The commercial advices are satisfactory. The cargoes of the ships above mentioned were being cleared off at generally remunerative prices. ALARMING FIRES AND Loss OF LIFE.— On Tuesday evening between the hours of six and seven o'clock, a fire, attended with a great destruction of property, and there is little doubt fatal consequences to a child about four years of age, broke out in the private residence belonging to Mr Frederick Geale, No. 18, upper Mansfield- place, Kentish Town, near the railway station. All of a sudden an alarm was raised that the place was on fire, and in the course of a few minutes flames in huge bodies shot forth from the lower and back portions of the buildings. Most of the inmates being from home at the time, it was not commu- nicated to the neighbours that a child about four years of age had been left in one of the rooms, and there is little doubt but he fell a victim to the fury of the fire. Information of the disaster having been sent to the engine- houses with as little delay as possible, the engines of the parish of St Pancras, those of the London establishments from Crown- street, Wells- street, Holborn, and Farriugdon- street, attended, as well as that of the West of England Insurance Company. The total damage is roughly estimated at £ 700. No. 19 in the same place, belonging to Mr Turner; No, 17, belonging to Mr Henson; and No. 16, the property of Mr Knight, are also greatly damaged by breakages and hasty removal.— Another fire also took place in the premises of Mr Robert Aldis, fancy trimmer, No. 58, Aldermanbury, City. The fire commenced in the first floor, and no time was'lost in procuring the engines of the brigade and West of England. Owing to the exertions of the firemen the fire was soon subdued. BIRTHS AND DEATHS IN L0ND0N.- r- The returns from the metropolitan districts exhibit a further decrease in the weekly mortality. The deaths which in the two previous weeks were 1,050 and 948, were in the week that ended on Saturday 915. Last week was so favourable to the health of London that the number of its inhabitants who died was less by 154 than that which would have been placed on the registers if the average rate of mortality had prevailed. During the last- three weeks the mean temperature of the air has been 58 degs, or nearly 14 degs higher than it had been in the three weeks preceding. The deaths arising from diseases of the respiratory organs continue to decrease ; the numbers returned in the last three weeks were 202, 167, and 139. Last week the births of 846 boys and 856 girlti, in all 1,702 children, were registered in London. In the ten cor- responding weeks of the j ears 1847- 50s the average number was 1,436, MILITARY INTELLIGENCE. TROPHIES OF THE RUSSIAN WAR.— On Wednesday four 68- pounder guns, captured in the late Rassian war, were for- warded from Woolwich Arsenal to York, Leeds, Sheffield, and Huddersfield. A number of these trophies have been despatched to the various provincial towns of the kingdom, and also to the colonies, to be erected in the parks or other public places of resort. MOVEMENTS OP TROOPS.— The following regiments are held in readiness at short notice to proceed from Dublin to Cork for embarkation, the former for Ceylon, and the latter for the Cape of Good Hope:— The 50th, consisting of 36 officers and 800 men, including non- commissioned officers, drummers, and rank and file, under the command of Colonel Richard Waddy, C. B. The 95th, consisting of 40 officers and 800 non commissioned officers, drummers, and rank aud file, under the command of LieuS- Colonel Hume, C. B. Of these 30 officers aud 200 rank and file, with a number of women and children, will go in the Beechfield, and the remainder in two other vessels which are daily expected. Major H. Smith, late 3d Buffs, is now adjutant- general of Cork district. Colonel Smyly, 99th Regiment, is acting quartermaster- general, in the room of Quartsrmaster- Generai Packe, on leave of absence. A number of volunteers arrived in Cork on Monday from Templernore, on their way to Aldershott Camp, to join the 88th Regiment, under orders for India. The steam- vessel Alban, 4, Commander de Blaquiere, and the Sprightly and the Pigmy, from Portsmouth, witn a portion of the 93d Highlanders, arrived at Plymouth on Tuesday morning, and transferred them to the Belleisle for service in China. NAVAL INTELLIGENCE. MOVEMENTS OF SHIPS OP WAR.— The Archer, 14, Captain Heathcote, left Spithead on Tuesday for the eastward to be paid off. She sailed from Greytown April the 15, and Port Royal the 27th, and had an excellent run from that station, with strong westerly winds. The Mariner, 12, sailing sloop, Commander Palliser, left Spithead ou Tuesday for the eastward to be paid eff. She arrived on the previous day from the West India station. The Exmouth, 91, Captain Eyres, C. B,, the Colossus, 81, Captain Thompson, and the Brisk, 14, Commander Curtis, have left Spit- head for Devonport, to be paid off; and the Euridice, 23, Capt Tarleton, C. B., and the Malacca, 17, Captain Farquhar, have proceeded to Sheerness to be paid off. The Volcano steam- vessel ( floating smithery), Blaster Commander Hockley, has sailed from Spithead for China. The Cyclops paddle- wheel steam- frigate, Lieutenant- Commander Joseph Dayman, left Sheerness on Sa- turday week, for the purpose of taking soundings of the line along which it is proposed the great Atlantic telegraph cable should be laid down. The floating battery Terrer, 16, lias been taken into No. 3 dry dock at Sheerness for the purpose of a survey being held on her. She is being rigged with all possible despatch. By a letter received from Carthageua, dated the llth of May last, i t appears that the Orion, 91 guns, screw steam- ship, Capt John E. Erskine, was that day to sail, and convey the Admiral of the West India and North American station to Navy Bay. Tho admiral was to proceed to Panama, where he was ex- pected to remain a few days, after which the Orion was to con- vey him to Greytown, from thence tho Orion will convey him to Bermuda, where he is to join his flag- ship, the Indus, 78 guns, Captain John C. Dalrymple Hay, which ship leaves Carthagena on the same day as the Orion, and proceeds direct for Bermuda. The West India squadron is broken up, and the following ves- sels ( says the letter) are to be sent home: The Cossack, 20 guns, screw steam corvette, Captain James H. Cockburn, sailed for England yesterday, to be paid off; the Victor, 6 guns, sorew steam gun- vessel, Commander Algernon, F. R. de Horsey, leaves to- day; the Tartar, 20, screw steam corvette, Captain Hugh Duulop, has proceeded to New York, but she is under orders to return again in a certain number of days to Bermuda. APPOINTMENTS.— Master: H. W. Burnett to the Basilisk. Assistant- Surgeons: F. H. Rose, to the Columbine; J. L. Sands, to the Brilliant; and Doyle M. Shaw, to tho Victory. Mates: C. Mitchell, to the Princess Charlotte; C. A. Martin, to the Princess Charlotte, Assistant Paymaster : E. Key, to the Edin- burgh.— Midshipmen : C. C. Hassall, E. B. H. Bevan, and G, G. Webber, to the Cordelia ; Henry Freeling aud W. S. Bailey, to the Cumberland; C. R. K. Smyth to the Cornwallis; C. H. Eden, to the Hastings; A. B. Glauville, to the Princess Charlotte. FISHING EXCURSION.— On the 22d of this month a great fish- ing excursion takes place in Yorkshire. The parties composing it start from the Crown Inn, Scotland- street, Sheffield, and Mr John Wreakes, the landlord, gives several prizes to be coutended for, amongst others, a silver cup of the value of eight guineas. A meeting will be held on the 16th inst, and all entries must then be made or before that date. The rules have been very carefully drawn up, and in. such fashion that the best angler must bear away the best prize. The men of Sheffield are setting a goad example. Sporting excursions cannot fail to be highly" amusing. FATAL ACCIDENT ON THE SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY.— A fatal and most distressing accident occurred on this line on Sun- day evening, by which one of the company's guards lost his life. The train from Hounslow to London, which leaves the former place at a quarter past nine p. m., went steadily along to Spring- grove and Isleworth station, aud the guard, Philip Page, was then in good spirits, and as active as usual. On the arrival of the train at Brentford it was discovered that Page did not ac- company the train. Fears were entertained that an accident had occurred, whilst hopes were indulged that the poor mau had not started with it from the Isleworth station. The fatal tidings of his death were soon made known, the driver of the express down- train to Windsor having seen his body lying on the line, in what is called the six- feet space. That train being stopped, the body, quite dead, was taken up, and conveyed to the Isleworth station, where it will remain until the coroner's inquest has been held upon it. It is supposed that Page mounted the roof of the carriages to close one of the doors, and in the attempt fell on the line, and met with his death in trying to cross the train along the buffers. He was a careful aud steady young man, about 34 years of age, and had been employed on the line about three years. DEATH OF VISCOUNT LISMORE.— We regret to announce the death of the Right Hon Viscount Lismore, which took place on the 31st ult at Shanally Castle, in the 83d year of his age. By his lordship's marriage with the Lady Eleanor Butler, daughter of the Marquis of Ormonde, he leaves two surviving children, the Lady Dunnalley and Hon George Ponsonby, present visGount, married to Mary, second daughter of the late Mr John George Norbury, and has two sons, Hon Gerald, born Novem- ber 3,1847, Hon Wilfred Ormonde, born November 14, 1853. The Lord Lieutenancy of the county of Tipperary becomes vacant by Viscount Lismore's death. THE NEW CHELSEA BRIDGE TOLL QUESTION.— On Monday a meeting of the inhabitants of Pimlico and Chelsea was held at tha Literary Institution, St Leonard- street, Pimlico, to take into ponsideration the intention of the Government to levy a toll on the above bridge; aud resolutions were unanimously passed pledging the meeting to use all constitutional means to prevent the toll being imposed. It was also agreed to appoint a deputa- tion to wait on Lord Palmerston on the subject. FRIGHTFUL DEATH OP THREE MINERS.— A very mournful spectacle was witnessedin the Northumberland pit village of New Backworth on Friday week, viz, tho funerals of three pit lads— George Lothard, aged 20 ; John King, aged 16; and John Rogan, aged IS— who were killed in Backworth New Pit on Wednesday morning week. They had been coming up the shaft in a corf with another workman from their work, and had got to the pit's mouth, when, upon their companion stepping out of the corf on to the platform, the hook of the corf, which had not been properly fastened to the rope that had hauled them up, slipped, aud the three poor fellows were precipitated with it a fearful distance down the pit and literally dashed to pieces. WHITSUNTIDE HOLIDAYS.— The various railway stations in the metropolis were literally besieged by thousands of persons anxious to avail themselves of the opportunity afforded by the several excursion trains to shake off the dust and bustle of city life, and to seek amid the freshness of rursfl soenes that whole- some relaxation which it is in vaiu to look for amid the crowded thoroughfares and the murky atmosphere of London. About 57,000 persons were conveyed by the London and Brighton Rail- way alone to the Crystal Palace, Croydon, Epsom, and the nu- merous other points of attraction upon the company's lines. The many public exhibitions of the metropolis also had their due share of visitors. Among others that of Madame Tussaud, in Baker- street; the Great Globe, in Leicester- square; Burford's Panorama ; and Mr Gordon Cumming's Exhibition were nume- rously attended. THE ATLANTIC SUBMARINE TELEGRAPH.— On Thursday afternoon the Lord Mayor, accompanied by a numerous party of the corporation and civic officers, paid a visit to the works of Messrs Glasse and Elliot, where the monster submarine cable is now rapidly advancing towards its final completion. This visit could hardly be called a public one, and it certainly was not pri- vate, for the party went in a corporation state barge, rich enough in flags and gilding to have satisfied the Queen of Sheba. Its ap- proaching the shore at such a wild hotel- less looking spot, where whitebait was never heard of and turtle is unknown, seemed to create no small amount of sensation among the natives who dwell along the river's banks on slimy piles, in stranded boats, or long West country barges. The visit was an event in their dreary life of flood and ebb, and they testified their interest accordingly by lounging to the doors of the various lockers in which they live, and watching the visitors come on shore. It was a feat worth seeing. Most of the gentlemen who inspected the works will agree with us that Glasse and Elliot's yard is not a pleasant place on which to land at low water. The shore is stony, and, as a general rule, unsavoury in hot weather, when all the abominable flotsam and jetsam of the dirtiest river in Europe evaporate enough miasma to poison an alligator. As an initiatory process all the visitors had to walk from the barge to the shore along a narrow plank, and this necessitated feats on the part of stout gentlemen which in a circus would have covered them with immortal honour. Plank- walking, under such circumstances, is always difficult, and when the perform- ance has to be gone through by a portly functionary in full court dress and cocked bat, anxious to preserve his dignity, yet afraid of losing his balance, the result has no medium, but is at once either sublime or ridiculous. During Thursday's visit there was a little of both extremes, and successive efforts gave rise to much amusement among the party, as each individual walked ashore with more or less of peril from the mud and water. The party were conducted over the works by Mr Glasse, and the various processes which the cable undergoes in the course of its manufacture were fully pointed out and explained. Nearly 900 miles are now completed, and at least 1,200 would have been ready could the wiredrawers have supplid wire as fast as the machines consume it. But that, unfortunately, has not been the case, for the daily consumption of fine wire has been greater than all the wiredrawers of England could furnish, and the consequence is that less is ready for shipment than was wished or anticipated. The making of the two shore ends of the cable is well advanced. Those portions— namely, for ten miles from the Newfoundland, and fifteen miles from the Irish shores, are being manufactured of immense strength, in order to resist the action of the waves over rocks, and danger from vessels, anchors, & c. They are made of 12 No. 1 wires, forming a cable 1| inch in diameter, and weighing about six tons to the mile. The size of the wires used in these ends gradually diminishes as deep water is reached, so that it tapers down where it joins to the diameter of the main portion of the cable. These No. 1 wires are welded ou to No. 2, which, in turn, are joined to No. 3, and so on, as shallow water and liability to accident are decreased. At these ends the gutta percha and " sewing" of greased and tarred hemp are also made proportionally thicker, to lessen the chance of accident from compression of the outside spiral iron casing, The manufacture of the centre portion of the cable has also been begun. In order to avoid risk from the first strain at starting, about five or six miles of the centre will be made of the strongest steel wire. In place of twisted strands the cable will here be bound with 18 No. 13 solid wires of steel, so that this part of the telegraph will, it is asserted, bear a strain of twelve tons with safety, or nearly twice the amount of dead strain that is likely to come upon it at the first outset. The preparations for ship- ping the cable are nearly finished, and the operation of transfer- ring tbe ponderous coils from the factory to the hold of the Agamemnon will commence on Tuesday or Wednesday next. There is not the least ground for the reports that the United States frigate Niagara is not to take the other half of the cable, manufactured by Newall at Birkenhead. At first there were some doubts as to whether it was worth while to make certain alterations in the vessel, which were necessary in order to avoid risk in paying out the coil. But this question has been defi- nitively decided, and the Niagara has quitted the Thames for Portsmouth dockyard, where some of her stanchions will be taken out, and her fine ward room not a little disfigured to ac- commodate her long passenger. FATAL CAB ACCIDENT.— On Tuesday evening a long inquiry took place in the board- room of the Charing- cross Hospital, before Mr Bedford, the coroner, on the body of James Parker, aged 53, a cab- driver, whose death was occasioned by a collision on Waterloo Bridge. Mr Bohn, bookseller, of York- street, Covent- garden, deposed that he was coming from his residence at Richmond, in a cab, on the afternoon of the 8th of May, when in passing over Waterloo Bridge, about three o'clock in the after- noon, he came in collision w'-' th another cab ; the driver of the latter ( the deceased) was thrown off his seat and so seriously injured, that witness had him *- aken into liis cab, and driven to the hospital. The deceased was driving one of Hansom's cabs. Both cabs were going the same wa, v. One of the toll- gates was closed, which occasioned the stoppage of both cabs; as also a truck, which was going the same way, was just ahead of the deceased's cab. Verdict— Accidental Death; and the jury strongly recommended that all the gates of Waterloo Bridge & e kept open in future. The deceased has left .1 wM?^ and seyen children, imperial parliament. HOUSE OF LORDS. . THURSDAY.— SALE OF POISONS.- The bill on this sub- ject was, after some discussion, referred to a select committee. DIVORCE,— The report of amendments on the Divorce and Matrimonial Causes Bill was then brought up, when Lord BROUGHAM expressed his objection to the substitute proposed undor the bill for the Action for Criminal Conversation, and with regard to the amendment, as it was called, which forbade the marriage of the wife. He declared that a greater blot had never been attached to a useful measure than by this amend- ment.— Lord REDESDAIE defended the amendment, on scrip- tural grounds.— After some further discussion the report was received. ADMINISTRATION OF OATHS— Lord CAMPBELL brought up the report of the select committee on the Administration of Oaths to Witnesses, and moved, " That select committees in future shall examiue witnesses without their having been pre- viously sworn, except in cases in which it may be otherwise or- dered by the house;" and " That all committees ou private bills shall examine witnesses on oath, except in cases in which it may be otherwise ordered by tho house."— The resolutions were then put aud agreed to nemine contradicente, and the house adjourned. FRIDAY.— THE PRINCESS ROYAL'S ANNUITY BILL was read a first time. The remainder of the business was not of a nature to justify a report in the present crowded state of our columns. HOUSE OF COMMONS. THURSDAY.- CHURCH- RATES— Lord PALMERSTON, in answer to an appeal from Sir J, Trelawney, stated that the Government were engaged in preparing a bill on the subject of church- rates, which they hoped soon to lay before the house,— Obtaining a further explanation from the Prime Minister to the effect that " soon " meant some time in the present session, Sir J. TRELAWNEY consented to withdraw the bill relating to church- rates of which he had himself given notice. JEWS IN PARLIAMENT.— Sir F. THESIGER gave notice that it was not his intention to oppose the second reading of the Oaths Bill, which stood for Monday, but that, in the committee, he should propose certain words to preserve the Christian character of the substituted oath, and that would raise the question whether the house was prepared to admit persons who were not Christians to a seat in that house. VOTING AT ELECTIONS.— Lord R. CECIL moved for the appointment of a select committee to inquire into the expediency of taking the votes at elections for counties and universities by way of voting papors. The plan would, he maintained, possess many practical advantages, in diminishing the cost and trouble attending the elections in question, and in a political point of view would accomplish many of the objects proposed by the ad- vocates of parliamentary reform, inasmuch as it would enable multitudes to exercise the franchise who were now prevented from voting, by distance, infirmity, or business avocations. The voting- paper system had been adopted in the election for poor- law guardians, and had in his belief worked well. As he only asked for inquiry, he contended that a sufficient case had been made out for the appointment of the select committee.— Sir G. GREY apprehended that if votes were taken by written papers enormous openings would be afforded for fraud and personation. The plan would, besides, occasion great delays in conducting the county elections, owing to the time that must be allowed for the interchange of a large mass of correspondence.— After some dis- cussion, the motion was withdrawn. THB BOARD OF TRADE.— Mr HORSFALL moved for a select committee to inquire into the origin, the past and present constitution, and the powers and duties of the Board of Trade, with the view to its better adaptation to the requirements of the country. The hon member described in much detail the various duties which were now assigned to the Board of Trade, contending that the nature of these functions was heterogeneous to an extent far beyond its competence to execute. On many points, he argued, the interference of the board was injurious, especially with regard to shipping, railways, and public works, while, as a collector of statistics, the returns published under its authority, and in particular the corn averages, and other matters connected with agriculture, proved altogether untrust- worthy.- Mr BASS seconded the motion.— Mr LABOUCHERE submitted that no charge of magnitude had been substantiated against the Board of Trade. That department had fulfilled very important functions, and had aided in accomplishing the great changes in our commercial system by which the prosperity of the country had been so vastly enhanced.— A good deal of dis- cussion arose upon the matter, in the course of which Mr LOWE remarked that the attack on the board in no way implicated its constitution, but consisted merely of a mass of minute com- plaints, ail of which it was impossible to answer without pre- vious notice. All the functions which the board exercised were assigned to it by acts of Parliament, and the frequency with which new duties were allotted to the department showed the confidence its administration had inspired in tke Legislature. That confidence he urged was well earned and judiciously be- stowed, and he then proceeded to vindicate the Board of Trade as to various charges which had been brought forward by the member for Liverpool.— Ultimately the motion was negatived by consent. THE WORKING CLASSES AND THEIR SOCIAL CON- DITION.— Mr SLANEY moved for the appointment of a stand- ing committee, or unpaid commission, to consider and report from time to time on practical suggestions, free from party dif- ferences, to give facilities for improvement in the social con- dition of the working classes. Tho rapid increase in our indus- trial population, aud the dense aggregation of human beings, caused by the development of the manufacturing system, had, he maintained, resulted in serious social evils among those classes of the community, which required constant vigilance aud legislative interference for their mitigation. This duty he proposed to assign to a permanent board, whose chief duties he outlined, but would not undertake the responsibility of nomi- nating the members of which it should be composed.— Sir G. GREY admitted the importance of the subject, and recognised the benevolent intentions of the proposer, but on practical grounds objected to the appointment of a standing committee, — The motion was then withdrawn. LICENSES TO INNS, & c— The house having gone into com- mittee, Mr ATHERTON moved for and obtained leave to bring in a bill to explain and amend the act now in existence regulating the grant of licenses to keepers of inns, alehouses, and victual- ling houses in England. THE BURIAL ACTS AMENDMENT BILL was committed projorma, and ordered to be reprinted. THE SHEEP, & e, CONTAGIOUS DISEASES PREVENTION BILL was read a second time, and ordered to be referred to a select committee. THE JOINT- STOCK COMPANIES BILL was passed through committee, for the purpose of incorporating certain amendments. THE PRINCESS ROYAL ANNUITY BILL was read a third time and passed. THE MINISTERS' MONEY ( IRELAND) BILL was also read a third time aud passed. FRIDAY.— COWS IN HYDE PARK.— Mr KEE SEYMER asked the Chief Commissioner of Works by whose authority cows were permitted in Hyde Park, when they were excluded from the other parks; whether the number was limited, and whether any of the officers of the ranger's department or of the Board of Works were allowed to have the run of cows free of charge; and, if so, how many were allowed to each such officer. — Sir B. HALL said that he had no authority over Hyde Park; but he had communicated with Mr Stephenson, the deputy ranger, who had informed him that cows were admitted, under the authority of the ranger, from any persons who liked to send them, on payment of rent, which amounted last year to £ 470 14s, Nothing else transpired in the course of the evening of general interest. THE GREAT HANDEL FESTIVAL.— The space appropriated to the orchestra alone for this grand festival occupies a clear area of 168 feet wide by 90 feet deep. Ample space has been given to the individual members of the orchestra, the vielins having 15 square feet, and the double basses and violoncellos 24 square feet for each desk. The chorus are all placed on raised benches, each individual having 21 inGhes in width, by 30 inches in depth. When it is remembered that the usual allowance in churches is only 16 inches for each person, it will be seen that the conve- nience of the performers has been well attended to. The balance and disposition of the instrumentalists has received much atten- tion from Mr Costa. The band consists of 76 first violins, 74 second violins, 50 violas, 50 violoncellos, 50 double basses, 8 flutes, 8 oboes, 8 clarionets, 8 bassoons, 12 horns, 6 trumpets, 6 cornets, 3 ophiclejdes, 8 serpents, 9 trombones, 2 pair kettle drums, 1 large long drum, 6 side drums— 385 performers in all, who are arranged at 202 desks. The chorus, originally intended to con- sist of 2,000 performers, slightly exceeds that number. The entire orchestra, therefore, is, as near as possible, 2,500. Every seat and stand throughout the orchestra has its appropriate number, and a staff of 38 superintendents, having from 50 to 100 performers uuder their immediate supervision, will identify and record the attendance of each individual day by day. A con- siderable portion of the repieni wind is arranged in two of the avenues which separate the division of the chorus. In the centre, between the organ and the band, the large drum made by Mr Distin for the festival will be a conspicuous object. It is between six and seven feet in diameter, and, when gently struck, produces a tone resembling the booming of a deep pedal- pipe. The chorus comprises about 1,000 metropolitan amateurs, 200 professional chorus, and nearly 850 choristers carefully selected and rehearsed from the great provincial choral societies and the cathedral choirs. These latter will arrive in London on the af- ternoon of Friday, the 12th of June, and the final choral rehearsal will be held in Exeter Hall at half- past six the same evening. OPENING OF A PUBLIC PARK AT BIRMINGHAM BY THE DUKE OP CAMBRIDGE.— On Monday the second park for the people was inaugurated by his Royal Highness the Duke of Cam- bridge. The first of these places of recreation was given by Mr Adderley, M. P., some time ago; the second, which has been pre- sented by Lord Calthorpe, is about 31 acres in extent, and is prettily situated on the banks of the Rea, in the imme- diate neighbourhood of the town. His royal highness reached the Snow- hill station of the Great Western Railway shortly after twelve o'clock, and was received by the mayor ( Mr Ratcliff), the other municipal authorities, Sir Harry Smith ( military com- mandant), & c. His royal highness afterwards proceeded to the Town Hall, where a sumptuous luncheoii was prepared. A pro- cession was then formed, and, escorted by several squadrons of the 10th Hussars, proceeded to the Calthorpe Park. On arriving there his royal highness was conducted to a spacious marquee, after which he planted a tree, his example being followed by Lord Calthorpe and the mayor. The park was then declared open. It had been crowded long before, and, at the given signal, a tremendous shout was given ; and, amidst the greetings of the populace, the duke drove round the ground, and slowly proceeded to the residence of the mayor, atEdgbaston, where he dined. In the evening there was a free concert at the Town Hall and a free ball at the Music Hall. FALL OP A ROMAN CATHOLIC CATHEDRAL.— The Roman Catholics in Plymouth have for some time past had in course of erection, in a field leading to Eldad, a noble- looking structure, which was to serve them as a cathedral. The building was rapidly progressing towards completion, and it was expected that it would be ready for consecration on the 4th of August next. That hope was entirely destroyed on Wednesday, for early in the afternoon about half of the roof fell in with a tremendous crash, and the building, with its lofty western front standing apart from the roof which connects the transept with the chancel of the church, presents the appearance of a ruin. Happily no lives were lost. The workmen had the alarm given in time, and they ran away as fast as their legs could carry them, the archi- tect being the last to leave the building. In the hurry he was knocked down, aud received a slight contusion on the arm, and it was almost marvellous that he was not buried in the ruins. The building at the time of the accident was roofed in, and every- thing was apparently going on well. The church was formed with side aisles, and from one end to the other the roof, which was an extremely lofty one, was supported by arches which sprang from pillars. These pillars were formed of Bath stone, and the arches springing from them were of brick. ACCIDENT AND Loss OF LIFE ON THE LONDON AND GREENWICH RAILWAY.— On Tuesday morning, between the hours of twelve and ene o'clock, a frightful accident, attended with loss of life, happened near the Deptford station en the London and Greenwich Railway, to Robert Wade, aged 30 years, a platelayer, The unfortunate man was running on the board or step " attached to the railway carriages when they were in motion, for the purpose of getting into one of the carriages. The door suddenly flew open, and he fell between the abutment and platform of the station, and the wheels of the carriages passed over his thighs. He wa s taken up without loss of time and conveyed to George Ward, St Thomas's Hospital, where am- putation of one leg was performed. He died shortly after. The deceased has left a wife and family to lament His loss. BARGES FOR THE DANUBE.— The fleet of forty iron barges, ordered by the Board of Trade for the service of the Turkish Government, which are under construction by Messrs West wood, Baillie, and Campbell, at Mill wall, Isle of Dogs, are rapidly progressing towards completion. They are intended for dredg- ing the Danube, in order to carry out the terms of the treaty entered into for the free navigation of that river. They are termed hopper barges, from their peculiar construction, and are well adapted for the purpose, being fitted so as to discharge their contents by means of a trap connected with the flooring. They are 30 feet long, and carry 15 tons ; when light, they draw 15 inches of water. One of Che barges is ordered to be despatched to Woolwich dockyard to be tested in the basin, to verify their j efficiency, prior to the fulfilment ofthe builders' contract. LAW INTELLIGENCE. IMPORTANT TO DEALERS IN BRITISH WINES.— In the Queen's Bench, on Wednesday, the court heard the arguments in a case which had been brought to try the validity of a con- viction by the magistrates of Staffordshire, in quarter sessions I assembled, against one Lancashire, for selling three- pennyworth of British made wine, which was consumed on his premises, without having been duly licensed for that purpose. The defendant, Henry Joseph Lancashire, carried on business at Bilston as a merchant iu British wines, and had an excise license, which was drawn up in the form prescribed by the 6th George IV, c 81, aud enabled him to retail sweet wines, but not to sell th6m to be oonsumed in his house or premises. A sub- sequent statute— the 9 th George IV, c 64, s 18— required the Commissioners of Excise not to grant any license for the retail of exciseable liquars until the magistrates had certified that the applicant's house was a proper one to be licensed; and then the 4th and 5th of William IV repealed the excise duty formerly paid by the maker of sweet wines, but left it still necessary that the retailer of them should con- tinue to take out the ordinary license. The question now raised for the decision of the court was, whether British made or sweet wines were exciseable liquors ?— Mr Scotland, on the part of the magistrates, submitted chat they were exciseable liquors, and that the conviction wa$ good.— Mr Huddleston, ou the other side, contended that, as the excise duty on the manufacture of these wines had boon repealed, they could no longer be con- sidered as exciseable liquors, and that the words in the de- fendant's license, saying he should not sell them to be consumed on the premises, were merely part of an old form, which was now obsolete and unnecessary, and that they had no effect what- ever.— Lord Campbell, in delivering judgment, said the only question was whether sweet or made wines were exciseable liquors within the meaning of the 9th Geo. IV., chap 61. If they were, the conviction would stand ; but if, on the contrary, they were not, then the conviction must be quashed. In his opinion they were not exciseable liquors within the meaning of the statute; he thought that liquors corning under that designation were those subjected to excises duty. Formerly these wines paid an excise duty, and a license was also required for the vending of them, but that duty had been entirely repealed; and, although the license oontinued as before, that circumstance did not make them exciseable liquors any more than a license for the sale of aqua pur a would convert it into an exciseable liquor.— Mr Justice Coleridge concurred in the opinion expressed by the Chief Justice.— Mr Justice Erie considered that these wines were exciseable liquors within tho 4th and 5th William IV, whe> i read iu conjunction with 9th Geo. IT. JJnder me latter statute the defendaut would have unquestionably been liable to a penalty if he sold these wines, to be consumed tn the premises, without having a proper license, because they were then ex- ciseable liquors. Tho former statute repealed the duty on them, but left the law as to licenses for their sale exactly in the same state, in all respects, as it was before; and although he admitted they were no longer exciseable liquors in the sense of paying a duty, he was of opinftn that they were so as regarded persons retailing them to be consumed on the premises. He therefore thought that the conviction was right.— Mr Justice Crompton agreed with Lord Campbell and Mr Justice Coleridge that the conviction was wrong, and ought to be quashed.— Conviction quashed. POLICE INTELLIGENCE. COMMITTAL OF A GANG OF COINERS.— At the Thames court, on Tuesday, Joseph Pomeroy, aged 37, Harriet King James, widow, 66, Elizabeth Sophia Pomeroy, 37, and Harriet Pomeroy, '. 3, were brought before Mr Self, on remand, charged with utter- ing base coin, and with having instruments and moulds in their posession for the purpose of manufacturing base coin. It ap- peared from the evidence that on the afternoon of Tuesday, the 26th ult, the prisoners Elizabeth Pomeroy and Harriet King James entered the house of Mr Henry Strevens, the British Oak Tavern, Oxford- street, at the back ot the London Hospital, and Elizabeth Pomeroy offered to Mr Strevens, in payment for some spirits, what he thought to be a shilling, and he gave lOd in change. Mr Strevens put the coin he had received on a side- board. On the following night the same females came in again, and Elizabeth Pomeroy gave to Mr Strevens another shilling in payment of a pint of malt liquor. Mr Strevens at once dis- covered it was a counterfeit, and gave the woman into custody. A policeman went to the direction given by the woman. On entering the house the constables found the male prisoner and his daughter, Harriet Pomeroy, there. Part of a counterfeit shilling was found, moulds for casting, a galvanic battery, and every necessary implement for making and colouring base coin. Mr Selfe said he did not think he should do right in committing the girl, Harriet Pomeroy, as she was very young, and no doubt acted under the control of her parents. The other prisoners were committed for trial. THE MURDEROUS ASSAULT AT LAURIE- TERRACE.— At Lam- beth, on Tuesday, James Buckley, a painter and glazier, six feet- six inches high, was brought before the Hon G. C. Morton, for final examination, on a charge of committing a murderous assault on a young woman, named Selina Witcher, servant to Mrs Davis, 11, Laurie- terrace, St George's, Southwark. From the evidence adduced it appeared the prisoner called at the house of Mrs Davis, and asked to see that person, and was told by her servant, Selina Witcher, that she was out, though at the same time she was up- stairs. The prisoner remained for a few minutes in the kitchen, and then went into the garden, and while the young woman Witcher was engaged washing ho came behind her and struck her a violent blow with something hard on the back part of her head. He then gave her a seooud and third blow, upon which she threw her arms up to save herself, and caught something which she believed to be the handle of the hammer produced, and after a severe struggle got away from him. She was taken to the house of a surgeon, bleeding profusely frosa a severe wound on the back part of the head, and for several days her life was in extreme danger.— The pri- soner, in reply to the charge, said he belonged to the Cri- mean Land Transport Corps, and his health became so im- paired before Sobastopol that ho was confined to his bed all the way home, and on the arrival of the ship at Portsmouth was carried from onboard to the hospital. There he remained a con- siderable time, and was at length enabled, though with a shat- tered frame and constitution, to come to town and renew his trade— that of a painter and glazier. On the Monday ( the day preceding the assault) he had taken a contract for some work, and had unfortunately drunk some spirits, which drove him mad, and he had not the slightest recollection of what had occurred at the time of his apprehension. He was exceedingly sorry for what had happened, begged forgiveness of the young woman, and hoped the court would take a favourable view of his case.— Mr Norton was disposed to believe much of what the prisoner had said, and that nis his conduct was more the result of drink than of premeditated injury; yet he had committed a most serious assault, and for it he should commit him to the House of Correction for four months, with hard labour. DOG STEALING.— At Bow- street, on Saturday week, John Morison, alias Mike Leary, was charged with stealing a French poodle dog, the property of Mr John Bischoff, of 108, Sloane- street, Mr Bischoff stated that between twelve and one o'clock p. m. on May 13 he was in Hyde Park, when he suddenly missed nis dog. He advertised in The ' Times, offering a reward ( but not stating the amount) for its recovery. On the 21st of May a man called upon him and gave him an address in Parker- street. He went there with the man to a public- house, when his dog was brought to him by the prisoner, who said " that he would not give him up the dog unless he was paid 30s," which he ( Mr Bischoff) refused to give. Leary then took the dog away, but was stopped with it inthe street a moment after by the police, who were on the watch. The dog had been stolen twice before, and money had been paid for its recovery. When stolen, the dog had on an irou collar, with Mr Bischoff's name and address on it. When Leary was apprehended, he said, " What a b fuss you are making ; it's ail right, it's an advertised dog."— The prisoner was sentenced, under Bishop's Act, to three months' imprisonment and hard labour. GREAT LOSS OF LIFE ON THE LANCASTER AND ULYERSTONB SANDS.— During Friday night week or early on Saturday morning several persons were drowned on the sands between Lancaster and Ulverstone— there is reason to suppose no less than 14 ; ten bodies have been recovered, washed ashore at Kent Bank, three miles from Lancaster. It is supposed the unfortunate deceased consisted of some dozen young men and two young women, who were proceeding to the usual hiring of servants custou. ary in Lancaster at Whitsuntide. A cart with a lifeless horse has also been found. The tide, it is conjectured, must have overtaken the sufferers, and hence the melancholy catastrophe. On Monday an inquest was held on the bodies. The witnesses supplied the names and ages of the deceased, which were as follow -,— John Williamson, 29; Thomas Hardman, 39; Henry Parkinson, 18 ; William Bond, 25 ; Thomas Robinson, 27; George Ashburner, 27; Richard Houghton, 25; Jonathan Hell, 20 ; John Sawyer, 21. The only evidence obtained as to the identity of the tenth man is that furnished by a receipted bill found in his pocket. It is made out to " Mr William Rose," by " Miles Rose," and it consists of four items, all for clothes, amounting to £ 3 2s 6d. Thomas Hall said that he managed the hotel at Kent Bank for Mr Willcock. He remembered seeing Ashburner and Bell at the house on Friday night. He supplied Bell with a glass of porter; and in passing a room he observed Ashburner standing with his back to the fire, and, he believed, singing a song. He could not say whether Ashburner was sober, bat Bell was quite sober. To the best of his knowledge, the deceased men came to the house about half- past nine o'clock, or twenty minutes to 10, and went away about 10 o'clock. On Friday evening it would have been a good ( safe) ford at nine o'clock, and the water would be out for five hours— sufficient time to allow of the ford being crossed.— John Pedder said that he saw the men come to Kens Bank public- house. They remained from twenty minutes to half an hour, when all of them got into a cart again. He went to the door, aud saw them drive over the railway and upon the sands. The driver was not drunk, but he was " sharp fresh," and was worse than the others. The witness asked the driver if he was going to take the party over the channel, and he replied that he had agreed to take them to Lancaster. The time at which they started was a proper one to cross the santls. When they started it was half- past 10 o'clock by his time, but by the Lancaster clocks it would only be 10 o'clock. He could go over in two hours, but it would have taken this party three hours. Some of them were quite sober.— The Coroner having summed up, the jury at once returned a verdict of " Found drowned." No more bodies have been found, although, as previously stated, three or four are supposed to be missing. ASSAULT IN A RAILWAY CARRIAGE.— Mr James Algernon Stuart Austen, a middle- aged man, of Headley, Surrey, stated to be a merchant in the City, son of a baronet, and brother to a county magistrate, was examined before a bench of justices at Reigate, on Tuesday, on a charge of committing a gross and indecent assault upon Miss Emily Burley, lady's- maid to the wife of the Rev Lord Charles Hervey, in a railway carriage during its passage through a tunnel, in the month of May last. The complainant stated that she left London by the 4: 40 p. m. South Eastern train in a second- class carriage on the 12ch ult. There were two men in the carriage with her. The defendant was one of them. [ Complainant pointed him out in the court.] During the journey she was grossly insulted by the ctefendant. At first he spoke pleasantly to her, but she only spoke to him when he spoke to her. The other person in the carriage was a very disagreeable- looking mau, with a swollen hand aud face; he looked as if he had been fighting. She was frightened at him, and objected to get into that carriage, but as the train was just starting she had no time to get into another. Defendant began by putting his feet on hers shortly after the train started. She then moved back on her seat, but she could not move back so far as she wished because she had some parcels on her right hand. The defendant was sitting opposite. The defendant was first sitting in the corner wnen he put his feet near to hers. Before coming to Merstham tunnel he put his feet on each side of her feet, and tried to raise her clothes. When the train entered the tunnel he took hold of both her hands and tried to pull her towards him. She got one hand released and then pushed him away. She resisted strongly; she did not shout, because she thought no oue would hear, and she thought she would be safer if she was quiet. She was afraid to attract the notice of people in the same carriage. When he found she resisted he desisted. The struggle lasted a few minutes. When the train got to the first station after leaving the tunnel she tried to attract attention by signs, as she was afraid to speak. She had no opportunity of calling any one's attention. At the next station she got to, she told the porter she must change carriages, as she had been insulted. He then put her into another carriage. She was going to Box Hill. She was positive it was the defen- dant who insulted her. The complainant was cross- examined by Mr Morrison, who appeared for the defendant, but nothing was elicited to shake her testimony. She said that she did not take any steps against the defendant until last Friday, because it was not convenient. Mr Morrison addressed the bench for his client, and suggested that the complainant might be mistaken in the identity of the defendant. The chairman said the bench were of opinion that there was no doubt in the matter, and they had therefore unanimously decided upon sentencing the defen- dant to three weeks' imprisonment. Mr Morrison endeavoured to induce the bench to change their decision, and said the de- fendant would pay £ 50 to any charity if they would mitigate the sentence, but this was refused, and the defendant was re- moved to Wandsworth prison. The bench suggested that the company should have lights iu the second- class carriages the same as in the first- class, when the train was passing through tunnels. Mr Rees, tbe solicitor to the South Eastern Railway Company, said he would convey the suggestion to the board.

[ TOWN EDITION.] the t u b. p. tee epsom and meetings. ascot THE EPSOM SETTLING. MONDAY, JUNE 1.— We scarcely ever remember so thin an attendance at " the Corner" on tbe Monday after E psora as the Subscription Room presented to- day, owing probably in a great measure to the unfavourable rumours that had been in circulation during the interval since that meeting, and which rendered the adoption of greater caution necessary even amongst the old stagers. The afternoon consequently was chiefly occu- pied in checking balances, and discussing the probabilities ofthe morrow, but at the same time a great deal of money changed hands, and Mr Davies was as usual first and foremost to dis- charge bis heavy liabilities, amounting to between thirtyand forty thousand pounds,— the losses on his regular book having been increased by the following double event bets, which came off against him:— 10,000 to 100 against Malacca winning the Cam. bridgeshire and Blink Bonny the Derby; 4,060 to 60and various Other bets at tbe same figure, amounting in the aggregate to 11,000 to, 205 against Vedette winning the Two Thousand and Blink Bonny the Derby; and 4,000 to 120 agst Blink Bonny winning the Derby and Oaks! Mr D. entered the Boom with upwards of £ 25,000 in his pocket, and left it with £ 15 only, hav- ing paid every creditor, except two who were not present As far as could be judged, the prospects of the morrow looked more favourable than had been anticipated— how far they were realised will be seen hereafter. The betting on future events was entirely confined to the Ascot Cup, for which 5 to 1 was taken to nearly two hundred pounds about Lance, 600 to 100 about Skirmisher, and 400 to 50 about Gemma di Vergy. 6 to 1 was offered on the field for the Stakes, and 20 to 1 on the field for the Derby of 1858. TUESDAY, JUNE 2.— The fineness of the weather fortunately enabled the major portion of the members to pursue their set- tling oa the Terrace and in the Ring outside, whereby the Room was considerably relieved of the pressure caused by the admis- sion of those, who, to avoid the crowd with which the yard was blocked up, paid their guinea for this " eventful day" only. The utmost precaution was adopted by Mr Thomas, the faith, ful janitor, to guard against the intrusion of those whose company is seldom cared for on such occasions; and in- side the services of Goddard and Langley, formerly of the Detective force were also called into requisition. Within the Room, therefore, there was little to fear from the light- fingered gentry; but outside, we hear, the swell mobsmen had a rich harvest, having, amongst other " appropriations," succeeded in easing one gentleman of £ 506 only a few minutes after he had received the money from a bookmaker, who cau- tioned him at the time against the suspicious- looking characters by which he was surrounded. It would be absurd to call the settling either good or satisfac- tory on the whole, although there were no " great goes" as in former years,— the most recent of which, by the bye, is likely to lead to an investigation before the Committee of the Room, re- specting certain losses incurred on Wild Dayrell for the Derby of 1855. The pecuniary strength of tbe Ring was best exempli- fied by the satisfactory manner in which all the principal book- makers met the claims upon them, which in several instances were " stiffish," though many thousands short of what " the Leviathan" dispensed the day before. The Derby seldom passes over, however, without exciting incidents of some sort, and this year we have to report several. Rumour had previously been busy respecting the " Sussex gentleman" from Arundel, the range of whose losses extended between £ 1,800 aud £ 9,000 ! In his absence, on Monday, many of his debts were bought up at various prices, from 10s to 6s in the pound, and the following affiehe ( which, however, did not appear to lessen the anxiety of many parties to " sell out,") will best exhibit the gentleman's " good intentions:"—" Mr Hopkins is making arrangements to settle his accounts, aad will attend at Tattersall's on the Monday after Ascot Races prepared to do so." The absentee that caused most talk was Mr W. Cooper, of Barkston, near York, whose notice ( in a friend's handwriting) declaring off a bet with another person before the race, strange to say, met the eyes of those who sought . from the usual deposi- tory over the fire place, information respecting his own ac- count ! The amount of Mr C.' s losses nobody seemed able to throw any light upon, but it is well known that they were con- siderably increased by his endeavouring to'' get his money back'' on the Oaks, by standing against Blink Bonny and backing Im- perieuse for all he possibly could in the Ring, which alone made thel atter mare so great a favourite at the last. Mr C. is said to possess the means of liquidating the claims upon him, and in letters to his principal creditors expresses his intention to dis- charge his liabilities as soon as circumstances will permit. Towards the close of the afternoon no little consternation arose in consequence of the abrupt exit from the Room of a Mr O., a foreigner well known in the " outside" ring, without com- pleting his account, which caused his conduct to bs reviewed in a most uncharitable light by certain of our morning contem- poraries, against whom Mr O. has subsequently assured us he has instructed his solicitor to take legal proceedings. We have before us a list of his payments, amounting to £ 611 10s, which exceeds tbe sum publicly mentioned in the room as that which he received in the course of his settling both in the City and at " the Corner;" and Mr O. further assures us that the sole rea- son of his leaving Tattersall's at such an early hour was his anxiety to catch the five o'clock " dinner express" to Brighton, where, having paid everybody on the Monday, he had arranged to receive the money due to him, in order to resume and complete his settlement in town on the following day. These " good intentions," however, were frustrated by certain of his London creditors putting the worst construction upon his absence, and telegraphing to the landlord of tho sporting rendezvous at Brighton to " stop payment" of his winnings. We are not the champions of either party, and merely lay what we believe to be the facts of the case before our readers as they have been represented to us, with the assurance of their correct- ness and that Mr O.' s account will be satisfactorily arranged. Amongst the " outsiders," the " hit andmissing" are numerous, the most important being Mr Thorpe and Mr Ledger. No " advices" have been received direet from either; but the former, we hear, has already received numerous visits at his " country seat" at Watford from those with whom he trans- acted business previously at his betting- office in Jermyn- street, As the keeper of the latter Mr T. has lately figured on several occasions at the Marlborough- street police- court, and, after being twice mulcted in fines of £ 20 and £ 50, was sentenced to two months' imprisonment, with hard labour, on his third appearance in that character! Against this unpleasant oc- cupation during the " dog days," for a man so habituated to the pleasures of the Turf and " Life in London," especially on the eve of the Derby, with " Royal Ascot" and other meetings in perspective, Mr Thorpe of course appealed, and he was libe- rated on bail until the re hearing of his case comes on, at which no doubt his presence will be hailed with acclamations by a large circle of anxious friends. The names of several others were mentioned, but as there is every probability of their accounts being satisfactorily arranged, we abstain for the present from further allusion to them. At the close of the afternoon we were enabled to make out the following brief list of transactions :— ASCOT STAKES. 8 to 1 agst Cerva ( tk) | 10 to 1 agst Winkfield ( tk) ASCOT CUP. 5 to 1 agst Lance ( tk) 6 to 1 8 to 1 Skirmisher ( tk) Gemma di Vergy ( tk) 8 to 1 agst Polestar( tk& off) 10 to 1 Adamas ( tk) 12 to 1 Tasmania ( tk freely) ST LEG£ EI 200 to 100 agst Blink Bonny ( tk).

THURSDAY, JUNE 4.— In the absence of a considerable por- tion of the subscribers at Manchester, the Room was so thinly attended that speculation on the Ascot events was almost at a standstill; and the only transactions that came to eur knowledge were on the Cup, as follows:— 175 to 25 against Lance, 500 to 35 against Fisherman, and 500 to 20 ( twice) against Ellington. 600 to 100 was offered against Skirmisher, and he had the decided call of Lance, about whom there were symptoms of a " screw loose."

JOHN SCOTT'S. Lon grange Toxopholite Streamer Whitewall Hypocrite JOHN OSBORNE'S. Esperance Punster Incledon Cassock The Cheery Chap Cornbro' I Night Ranger SO THE EDITOR OE BELL'S HIE IN LONDON. SIR : Last week Epsom Downs witnessed a renewal of a per- formance the like of which in the present generation of Turfites is unknown; and if Eleanor by her " seedy" victory over eleven animals in the Derby and half a dozen fillies in the Oaks has been considered so great a wonder as to stand out in bold relief from the rest of her sex, what shall be said of Blink Bonny, who, under circumstances of unusual difficulty, cuts down a field of thirty on the Wednesday, and " spread eagles'' on the following Friday eleven of the best mares of the year ? Why, sir, that public running has proved itself correct, and that mares have as much chance in running for the Derby with horses as they have in handicaps and produce stakes ; and now the spell has been fairly broken, I calculate, as Brother Jonathan would say, that the entry for the Derby of 1859 will include a more than ordinary sprinkling of mares. With the details of the meeting itself your readers are already familiar from the elaborate and accurate report which has appeared in your columns, but having, iu my anticipations of the leading events, commented freely upon the chances of most of the candidates for Epsom honours, I will now proceed to point out how far those calculations were correct, and what line for the future we must draw from them. And first as regards Blink Bonny. This mare, your readers will do me the justice to recollect, I stated previous to her un- fortunate exhibition in the One Thousand " ought never to have been beaten, and bred to stay, and with the speed that has cut dawn such a horse as Gemma di Vergy and such a filly as Ayacanora, I could only look on the race as a question of health." I afterwards remarked, " that it was absurd to sup- pose for an instant, after all the noise and pomp with which her coming had been heralded, and the minute preparations which had been taken to preserve her from maliciously disposed persons, that she was the same animal that was first favourite for the Derby." Under these circumstancee, with the strong- founded belief of her being, to use the mildest pbrase, " a high blower," aud being at such an outside price in the market, I conceive, without better grounds, that I should not have been justified in recommending her to your readers in preference to horses of whose perfect state of health there could be no mis- take, both from personal knowledge, and the steadiness of the market; and the fact of the mare having recovered herself sufficiently to have beaten her stable companion Strathnaver at home, and to have come to so short a price as 20 to 1, strikes me, Sir, to have been alone wanted to be known to make her a more dangerous candidate than either M. D^ Tournament, or any horse I could have selected in my letter, which for obvious reasons was published ere these facts transpired. Ill- natured critics, I am well aware, are not dis- posed to put the most charitable construction on the defeat of Blink Bonny in the Thousand, but I contend, Sir, that Mr I* Anson has no more right to expect that his animals shall be free from the multitudinous ills to which horseflesh is heir, than other people's ; and that although, if he had only himself to con- sult, he might have thought it more prudent to have kept her at home, yet it is allowable, seeing what a frightful example she made on Friday of Imperieuse and Moestissima, for him to sup- pose that he could have pulled through. As when his mare was Blink Bonny again, he made not the slightest mystery about it, I consider he is entitled to every credit for his skill in his management of her, and for having the good sense to put upon her a jockey capable of developing her racing abilities. And in taking leave of Blink Bonny for the present, it is hardly neces- sary to assure her owner that his conduct of her for the Don- caster St Leger, which, as a Yorkshireman, will be his greatest triumph to achieve, will be anxiously watched; and I have no apprehensions of my own but that he will rise with the occasion, and prove equal to the emergency, obtaining for his mare even greater racing honours than have been awarded to Surplice, Flying Dutchman, and Voltigeur. M. D., my chosen one, even by those most prejudiced against The Cures, must be admitted to have been worthy of a place in " The Gallery of Winners of Bell's Life;" and " Sim," whose experience of a Bloomsbury, a Surplice, and a Cossack, well qualified him to give an opinion of a Derby horse, observed with great truth, if he could only have got M. D. home, from the manner in which he was carrying him at the moment of his accident, that the trial of twenty- one pounds to Sir Colin ( again a winner this week) would have been found sufficiently good to have brought the " Blue Riband" to Wantage. Adamas demonstrated most clearly— both from his condition, which was unrivalled, and from the position he acquired in the race— that public running is, nine times out of ten, infallible, and that the prejudice against a small stable for a Derby, is a remnant of routine and red- tapeism worthy of a past age. Although the de- cisions of Mr Clark are rarely if ever called in question, still there is a strong presumption that on this occasion Adamas was rightly entitled to the second honaurs, and had not Wells taken the lower ground— a disadvantage which Marlow felt seriously, when Hotspur challenged him on The Dutchman— in all human probability Adamas would have run as he did at Doncaster, second to Blink, and so verified to the letter his two year old form. My calculations relative to Anton's measure were most correct, and your readers cannot complain of being led astray as to the merits of the Middleham string; but they will coincide with me, I think, in hoping that, for the future, we shall hear no more of those extensive " laying commissions" against the best public performer of his year, which have re- cently acquired so great notoriety in betting circles, as such transactions are fatd in the highest degree to the best interests of the Turf. Tournament, I think, must satisfy all impartial persons that he cannot stay— in public at all events— and in re- marking that it would have been much more satisfactory if his owner had scratched Blue Jacket immediately after he had won the Craven, instead of allowing him to remain in the Derby for upwards of two hours afterwards, to the serious loss of those who backed him for large sums, I am only echoing the feelings of a nu- merous body who paid dearly for their whistle in having thought a horse good enough to have a chance for the Derby who could beat Gemma di Vergy at even weights. For Mr Howard's ill luck with his pair— Arsenal and M. D.— the public were prepared, although the former ran in a manner not to disgrace his stable; but Mr Drinkald would have put all his previous surprises in the shade could he have got Black Tommy through, and henceforth I have reason to believe the Ring will have their " weather eye open" to this gentleman's stable. I know not that I have any further remarks to offer on this most interesting race, save my conviction that at the time when it was incumbent for my im- pressions to go forth I made the best selection in my power for your readers, and had it not been for the resurrection of Blink Bonny my predictions would have been faithfully verified. The Oaks was a complete farce of a race, and the only remark- able feature in connection with it was, that the fillies behind the winner were so bad that it seems a miracle how, " off " as Blink Bonny was at Newmarket, she did not then defeat all opposi- tion, Coinciding with the generally expressed opinion of the last anniversary being the best held at Epsom of late years, both as regards weather, spirit, and accommodation, I bid adieu until next April to the Downs of Surrey. » Ascot— the Royal Meeting of England, but to the great morfci- fication of many of Her Majesty's most loyal subjects hardly patronised to the extent they could desire by the Court— takes up the ensuing week, and I wish I could hold out to your readers a better promise of sport than present appearances indicate. The Triennials are almost worn out, the entry for the Queen's Vase is the smallest on record, and even the Cup itself, which once bespoke a contest wo rthy of the days of Zinganee, Priam, and Teddington, if the course continues as hard as it is at pre- sent, bids fair to be robbed of half its interest by the smallness of the field, and the character of the starters. This state of affairs, I am apprehensive, will not be improved upon until the debt upon the Stand is liquidated, and a portion of the receipts applied to the various races. The card of Tuesday containing no fewer than half a dozen races, I must now proceed to discuss without further digression. The first item, the Trial Stakes, is yet to be entered for. Next follows the Queen's Vase, and I confess I should have been glad to have seen Her Majesty's special prize patronised by a better field than merely Strathnaver, Arsenal, and Mary. The running in the Derby has been generally so true in this race, and the weights are so much in favour of the three year olds, that I have scarcely any hesitation in awarding the Vase to Strathnaver. The Four- year- old Triennial, out of the fifty- one original entries, will probably only have Victoria, Pitapat, Peter Flat, Aleppo, Viscount, and Polmoodie to contend for it; and Pol- moodie has only to keep on his legs to secure the whole of the stake. The Ascot Stakes has an acceptance of a better calibre than we have seen of late years; forty- three out of the seventy- five animals that were weighted having stood. The runners may probably include Winkfield, Prince of Orange, Tame Deer, Emi- grant, Cerva, Apathy, Martinet, Huntington, Redemption, Xanthus, Somerset, Theory, Companion, Paula Monti, South Western, Alice Wentworth, Claude Lorraine, and Rotterdam. Of these, Cerva and Winkfield alone have been backed in public. The former mare was quite as favourably handicapped in the Somersetshire as she is now, but was withdrawn in behalf of Wentworth. There is now no obstacle to her putting in an ap- pearance, and as she won last year at Bath with six stone on her in the commonest of canters, and was well up in the Cesarewitch with 6st 9lb, I see very few with a chauce of beating her. Winkfield, although he likes the course, cannot give the weight to the young ones. Prinoe of Orange has shown us his objection to so long a journey, aud Apathy can hardly be in form. Martiuet wants speed, but Xanthus for an old horse has such a ridiculous light weight on him he must be dangerous over this course. Another steeple chaser— Emigrant — is not overburthened with weight, but I do not expect to see him repeat his " Grand National" victory on this occasion. Companion performed so badly at Manchester I must give him up; and South Western seems incorrigible. Alice Wentworth's public running would lead to the belief that she has ever been an over- rated mare, and unless Mr Mellish has the winner in his lot, which I think will be found to be the case, I see nothing with the same chance as the Danebury mare. For the Ascot Derby I think we may depend upon seeing at the post Turbit, Sydney, and the Ma Mie colt, and although Baron Rothschild's horse was before Turbit in the Two Thousand, I think their places will be now reversed. The Ascot Biennial, with its forty- seven youngsters, should lead to an interesting race. It is out of the question to nmg the actuai starters; but from the dark lot, I think Clydesdale and Brother to Mary Copp will be found worth standing on; and that Terrific will beat all the public form we have seen out. Wednesday's card has for its principal feature the Hunt Cup, the subscriptions to which are two more than last year. To the Handicap no great exception can be taken, and the lot from which I am disposed to consider the winner will spring, are Uzella, Cotswold, Sister to Jesuit, and Strawberry. The Fernhill has a small but very interesting entry, com- prising, as it does, the names of Polly Peachum, Zaidee, Sister to Ellington, Sir Colin, and Greenwich Fair ; and as Polly showed symptoms of going off last week, I think Sister to Ellington will manage to be first home, for it is scarcely to be supposed that Sir Colin, fine speed though he professes, will run away up such a hill with the " steadier" of 9st on his back, and land Mr Parr's colours triumphant, as he did at Epsom and Manchester. The Coronation Stakes has fourteen fillies in it, and as Mcestissima was the second best, after B'ink Bonny, in the Oaks, it is only fair to conclude she should keep to that form now. The Windsor Castle Stakes does not look likely to bring out more than Sydney, Zaid6c, Gesnma di Vergy, and Mcestissima, and Zaidte will, in my estimation, be found the best worth standing on. Thursday brings us to the Cup Day, which is as uuique in its own character as that of the Derby ; but its individualities are so well known it is unnecessary for me to allude to them. The Cup, when the entry for it was first published, brought us back to " the golden age" of that race when monarchs them, selves were not above entering the lists with their subjects to contend for it. Wo have now, alas! no horse specially pur- chased for the occasion, and no Royal mandate to " start the whole fleet, and let the best win!" Germanism, with its mys- ticisms, has thrown a wet blanket over the national sport of a free people, and it is impossible to conceal that the respect for the Prince Consort would be immeasurably increased were he to enter a little more freely into the pastimes of a nation whose throne he has been called on to share. In this respect he might well imitate the laudable example of the Emperor of the French, who misses no opportunity of encouraging racing in France, both by his presence and his bounty. But it is useless dwelling upon a topic which is painful to the feelings of every English sportsman; therefore I must proceed to look at the field likely to muster before Royalty on this occa- sion. Making allowances for the ground, I think we may depend upon Pretty Boy, Tasmania, Melissa, Winkfield, Blue Jacket, Wardermarske, Adamas, Warlock, Fisherman, one of Lord Ribblesdale's, Gemma di Vergy, Polestar, Lance, Leamington, and Skirmisher at the post. Of these, Pretty Boy should run well if his party back him, for through Mary and Co they have a capital lino of nearly every animal in the race. Tasmania was a little worse last montla than Imperieuse, which, according to public running, puts her chance out of the question, Melissa is not the Melissa of last year, or I should fancy her much ; aud Winkfield will be made to gallop faster than he did on the last occasion of his successful performance over this course. Blue Jacket had speed enough to beat Gemma Di Vergy at Epsom, but I don't believe he will " travel" so long as the latter, who, if the ground were soft, would un. doubtedly see the winner. Wardermaske is certain to beat most of the field ; but Adamas beat him twice and will beat him again. The latter is not in good odour at the present moment, yet he may recover before the day, aud, if fit and well, I know of nothing whose chance I should prefer to his. ' Warlock's real form was made apparent at Chester, and Fisherman, the last time we saw him, was evidently not in his old form, or I should undoubtedly admit his first- rate claims. Lord Ribblesdale's pair cannot have forgotten their early spring work, and to Ellington's staying powers I am no convert. Polestar is a very superior mare, and if she had not run for the Somersetshire I should have conceived a strong fancy for her, but now I cannot predict for her more than a " position." Lance ran well up in the Chester Cup with Mr Snewing's mare, at 6lb, aud has now an allowance of 9lb in his favour, which ought to bring him before her, and consequently make him dan- gerous ; and, as he gave Leamington nearly two stone, and ran him to within five lengths at even weights he is certain to keep the Chester Cup winner safe. Skirmisher must be so sore from his hard work, that, over this distance of ground, it is certain to tell upon him, and, unless the course is as deep as in Joe Miller's year, I would not trust him. To sum up, I fancy the winner of the Ascot Cup will be found in ADAMAS or WARDERMARSKE. The St James's Palace Stakes will hardly produce an opponent to Anton, or the Sweepstakes of 50 sovs to Blink Bonny. The New Stakes will, I presume, as usual, furnish the book- makers with plenty of materials for betting, as the following are likely to show for it, viz, Brother to Mary Copp, The Happy Land ( 5lb extra), Excelsior, Sedbury ( 51b extra), Vandyke, York, Prin- cess Royal ( 51b extra), Eurydice ( 5lb extra), Volatore, Gassier* and Punster; and, unless any great favourite turns up in the meantime, I shall anticipate seeing York or Volatore the winner. Friday's card receives a most valuable addition in the shape of the Railway Handicap, to which the liberal douceur of 300 sovs has been contributed by the South Western and Staines and Wokingham Railway Companies, and I err much if their re- turus do not amply repay them for so liberal a gift. None of the other races, with the exception of two small Sweepstakes, either the Two or Three Year Old Triennial Stakes allowed 5lb; the second to receive 50 sovs out of the stakes; once round; 51 subs.

A word on behalf of the northern meeting at Beverley, in Yorkshire, which, notwithstanding the more potent attractions of Ascot, will repay a visit from those who have not been tempted to prolong their visit in the metropolis, as the committee, to show their earnestness in the good cause, add 200 sovs to two races on the first day, and very nearly the same amount to the other stakes on the second. This liberality I should like to see imitated in other quarters, and must have its good effect on the public mind. The performers, as may be expected, will be solely confined to the Northern stables, and from the im- mense number of horses in training in Yorkshire, there can be no fear of that bane to sport— viz, short fields. The Bishop Burton Stakes will be the most important item in Wednesday's card, from the fact of so many gosd animals havisg previously won it— to wit. Blink Bonny, Manganese, Jack Sheppard, Brown Brandy, and Exact. The entry com- prises twenty- four names, the most formidable of which, in my estimation, are Night Ranger and Longrange, the representa- tive of Malton. The Beverley Cup has twelve acceptances, and if Fairy be well and meant, she cannot be far off winning; and to her and Liver- pool I leave the race. The Londesborough Produce Stakes, to which the spirited nobleman, after whom it has been named, has taken seven sub- scriptions, has every appearance of falling into John Osborne's hands with Lady Alice.

As on former occasions, so on this, three " cups," or pieces of plate, will form part of the prizes to be run for next week on the course at Ascot Heath. The " eups" that will be the objects of contention, and the rewards of success, are, at least two of them, veritable " cups," and may be used for the purposes of hospi- tality as well as for show or ornament, and the third " cup" so called is also of a utilitarian character, being a lofty candela- brum, calculated to shed light over a large dinner table, or to illuminate the sideboard of a noble mansion. The adaptation of these things to useful purposes is an improvement on the in- cessant repetition of groups of figures, viz, kings, queens, war- riors, gods and goddesses, which, however clever in the model- ling and manufacture, were become somewhat wearisome to the eye, and tedious from their extraordinary resemblance to each other, and in some respects their resemblance to nothing else. This error the artists employed this year have judiciously avoided, so that whatever nobleman or gentleman becomes the fortunate winner of an Ascot " cup" at the ensuing races, will have the satisfaction of having obtained something that will be useful as well as ernamental to his collection of plate, aud need not be afraid of having the refectory of his hall or castle con- verted into a silversmith's bazaar for the display of incongruous groups of oddities, not to say monstrosities, manufactured in the precious metals, which might be employed to much more fitting purposes. The " Queen's Cup" and the " Ascot Cup" have both been masufactured at tha establishment of Messrs Garrard, goldsmiths to the Crown, of Pauton- street, Hay- market, and as specimens of English manufacture, cannot be surpassed for workmanship and the elaborate details of manipu- lation. The " Queen's Cup" which, to our notion, is the best of the two, is designed and modelled by Mr Cotterill, whose name is a sufficient guarantee for tbe excellence of the production. The old maxim, " difficile est bene communiadicere,"— diffi- cult it is to describe what has been described a thousand times before— may be made applicable to the difficulty of au artist who has to do designs and mode a silver tankard, and give some novelty of feature to a drinking vessel of such common and unpromising eutline. Mr Cotterill has accomplished the task committed to his hands in a most admirable manner, and has proved that a man of genius and good taste is capable of combining utility with elegance, and giving novelty of effect without losing sight of the proper attributes of his subject. The " Queen's Cup " for 1857 is a capacious tankard of bright silver, capable of containing upwards of a gallon of fluid— such a vessel as an abbot of the olden time would have rejoiced to have quenched his thirst from, or from which Queen Elizabeth her- self might have quaffed wassail to her admiring subjects. This huge flagon has a lid or cover, on whieh is represented, with great truth and spirit, the contest of a boar brought to bay with two ferocious dogs— " His eyeballs glare with fire, suffus'd with blood. His neck shoots up a thick- set thorny wood: His bristled back a trench impal'd appears, And stands erected like a field of spears. Froth fills his chaps, he sends a grunting sound, And part hechurns, and partbefoams the greund." The dogs are equally characteristic, and might have been lineal descendants of the animals described by Shakespeare—" I was with Hercules and Cadmus once, when in a wood of Crete we bayed the boar," so ferocious is their appearance, and so thorough- bred their mode of attack. This " Cup " will add to the weight of artistic honours already borne by Mr Cotterill. The '* Ascot Cup" is a vase, having something of an Oriental character, and can, like the tankard just described, be used as a drinking cup. It is elegant in the design, and very elaborately manufactured, the minor parts being made to harmonise with the outline, aud assist, instead of overpowering, the general effect. It was designed by Mr Percy, whose labours on this occa- sion give promise of increasing reputation. Tbe vase is not encumbered with those sort of accessories, viz. dogs, birds, and nondescripts, which maybe said to have " no connection with next door," and which distract the eye, and mar the keeping of the principals. It is a chaste and noble piece of plate, and worthy of all the praise we can bestow upon it. The " Rojal Hunt Cup" is from the manufactory of Messrs Hunt and Roskill, gold and silversmiths to her Majesty, of Bond- street, and partakes of the excellence by which whatever is pro- duced by their well- known firm is distinguished. As was said above, it is a candelabrum, standing about two feet and a half high, of pure and simple design, having branches for six lights, which can be removed, andthe stem and upper part made to carry flowers, & c. The stem rises from a rocky base, on which are represented in high relief, ou oue side, two fallow deer and a re- cumbent doe— " So when two vig'rous stags, each of his herd The haughty lord, through all the forest feared, Resolved to try which must in combat yield, In all their might advance across the field; They nod their lofty heads, and from afar, Flourish their horns, preluding to the war." This " Cup" is very appropriate in its details to the " Hunttf Cup. It is from the design of Mr Thomas Brown, a young artist, but one whose name will soon be familiar with the public. age st lb Warlock 4.. 8 12 Artillery 4. .8 9 Polmoodie .... 4.. 8 7 Graculus Esu- riens 5.. 8 4 Tom Thumb .. 4.. 8 4 Manganese .... 4.. 8 4 Victoria 4 .8 0 Kestrel 4.. 7 12 W ardermarske .3.. 7 11 Falstaff 4.. 7 10 Apathy 3.. 7 9 Tournament .. 3.. 7 7 age st lb IJzella 4, .7 7 Good Friday .. 4. ,7 6 Vulcan 5.. 7 5 Jesuit 5 .7 4 Aleppo 4.. 7 4 Sydney 3.. 7 4 Unexpected 4.. 7 4 Westminster .. 5.. 7 3 K. of Scotland., 4.. 7 2 Loyola 3.. 7 0 The Dupe 3.. 6 13 Lawn 4.. 6 12 age st lb ... 4,. 6 10 ... 3.. 6 9 ... 3.. 6 7 .. .3. .6 7 ... 8.. 6 4 ...

We shall give the entries in our " Latest edition." Scarce have we recovered from the turmoil of Epsom than the " Royal Meeting" of Ascot commands our attention. The pro- bable starters, winners, & c, are fully discussed by " OBSERVER" elsewhere, and we need only now address ourselves to the ar- rangements that have been made for the accommodation of visitors, premising that the course, although well covered with herbage, is extremely hard. Both the Great Western and South- western Railway Companies have made ample arrangements for all classes. By the former route, trains will leave Paddington for Windsor at frequent intervals, whilst conveyances will run in connexion with the company from Windsor to the race- course- By the South- Westeru line, special trains will be despatched from Waterloo station direct to the Heath, throughout the meeting; but as neither of the companies has specified the times in their advertisement elsewhere, we are unable to refer m © re fully thereto. We may add that trains will run on the South- Western line from Reading to Ascot about every half hour from 9 a. m. till 12 at noon, calling at Wokingham, and returning from Ascot after the races. Tickets may be obtained beforehand at Messrs Tattersall's Subscription Rooms or at the Great Western Company's City and West End offices. With a continuance of the lovely summer weather— which the glass at present seems to guarantee, together with the expected presence of her Ma- jesty, the meeting promises to be a " bumper." There were but few arrivals up to Friday night, but a list of the horses ex- pected— imperfect, we fear, owing to several trainers having failed to send their returns— will be found below. The races will commence on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at half- past one o'clock. HORSES Trained by Blink Bonny.... W. I'Anson Strathnaver W. I'Anson Theory Y. King Little Robin Y. King Lawn H.

Memorable as the Epsom week will long be regarded ia having produced the greatest equine marvel of the past half- century, its successor, alike remarkable for the abundance of work cut out for Turfites at the northern metropolis, will be the more readily remembered in connection with those unrivalled pro- ductions of art now concentrated within the walls of that en « terprising place. But independently of the latter temporary yet transcendent adjunct, Whitsuntide at Manchester has long since earned the palm for holiday games, " processioning," and racing. Custom is here, indeed, honoured in the observance The operative upholds it, manufacturers patronise it, factories suspend labour, ponderous machinery is hushed to quietude, and for seven mortal days dull care is despatched to the right- about in the most fancied Lancasterian style. With the last clank and expiring engine puff subsides the anxiety of months preceding it. Spicy attire discloses how gains meanwhile have been invested; steam trips whirl thousands to some pleasant retreat; and, finally, lines of crammed vehicles convey to Castle Irwell the main division of an immense population. Excepting the tacit distribution of paper nonsense, which ia said to be sometimes relished, and doubtless in many instances employed to some useful end, sinner and saint pass on non- in- terferingly, each to the object of his bent. Celebrated as the spot at which the great locomotive set down its first trial freight, where free- trade was eloquently advocated to adoption, and all other measures for the alleviation of human suffering and the development of civilisation have in turn received the undivided attention and aid of its wealthy, spsrting, and generally spirited inhabitants, whilst at the same time progressing in grandeur and magnificence to an extent perhaps unexcelled elsewhere iu the architectural and building way, it can excite 110 surprise that the suggestion of an Arts' Treasures Exhibition was received with enthusiasm, and carried out upon a scale of unsurpassed magnitude and splendour; nor that " the sporting men of Man- chester" should emulate the spirit and vigour of the men of business by determining upon adding a fourth day's sport to their summer festival by way of celebrating so grand au epoch in the history of this vast emporium of manufactures. A glance at the programme sufficiently bespeaks the liberality with which the last- mentioned proposition was supported; a Plate, Nur- sery Handicap, & e, were forthwith announced in commemoration ot the Exhibition year, thus swelling the entire money given for competition at the meeting to the munificent sum of £ 1,660. Excursion trains, at low fares, from north and south, were as plentifully provided to render successful the combined object, and of which, during the week, thousands availed themselves, delighted witb so famous an opportunity of varying their fore and afternoon's diversion. But in matters mundane, and par- ticularly as relates to the Turf, what, honestly speaking, can be instanced as having escaped drawbacks of any kind ? Thus ( it might have been foreseen) that with the toil of the " Derby week," and the prospect of one equally laborious at Ascot, com- mencing on Tuesday next, southern speculators were only too glad to seize an interval for rest, and hence their absence, with two or three exceptions, at Manchester. Again, leg weary and worn, some half- hundred horses accepting, were similarly kept at home, from which, besides, none were at all likely to be beguiled, owing to the frightfully hard condition of the ground up to Tuesday night. Copious showers, however, then dismissed the latter mischief, and on Wednesday morning the " going" was as fine as need be. Alternate storms and sunshine kept up a contention until the sport began, when, after a decided demon* stration in favour of the former, old Sol carae to the rescue, and shone with brilliancy for the rest of the day. The united attrac- tions aforesaid contributed to the largest attendance yet showing on the opeuing day; in fact it was scarcely inferior to that we were wont to witness on that designated the " grand" one. Offers of 5 to 1 on the field for the Union Cup was the sum total of quotations at the Post Office Hotel before proceeding to the course, where, soon after two o'clock, business commenced in earnest with the overthrow of a " pot" in Ellermire for the Phillips's Handicap, by Plausible. However, in the Manchester Produce Stakes, Admiral Harcourt's colours were more success- ful on Wardermarske, who waited upon Sir Colin, and easily de- feated a field of only four « ut of the large number of 64 nomi- nations. Fourteen runners, oue more than last year, next showed for the Union Cup, which, as iu 1856, resulted in the hollow victory of an outsider in Fright, who was backed by his party for a small sum only. Stork and Breeze left off equal fa- vourites iu the ring, but the one, it will be seen, indulged in tha lead for a short distance at the commencement of the race, whilst the other never showed iu it at all, the result being hailed with tremendous shouting by the fielders, Cedric, we should state, was scratched to- day at 2: 27 p. m., and previous to the race Saraband changed hands to Lord W. Powlett. Eight went to the post for the Sapling Stakes, for which, at the onset, Flying Duke wa3 the pick of the Ring, but he was directly supplanted by Sister to Ellington, who cut down the field in a common canter, Intercidonia, a nice looking filly from John Osborne's stable, being backed, perhaps, for most money. Active employment; for the metallios was supplied in the Trafford Handicap, but Manganese, in one of her best tempers, and scarcely supported for a guinea, held her own throughout, and scored another triumph for the fielders. Soon after dusk, the rain again set in, and fell heavily during the uight, rendering the course heavy and " holding," and its approaches little better than mud ponds. The drenching showers, in fact, did not cease until just before the first race on Thursday was decided, when the weather cleared up, and a dry though gloomy afternoon ensued. The unbroken stream of piled omnibuses, and densely packed carts, which rolled onwards for more than two hours, conveyed from the city a very large attendance, but when all had set- tled down, it was clear the throng fell short of the monster mark of Wednesday. The disagreeable fore- noon, doubtless, wrought mischief in this respect; but under no circumstances were people wont to be deterred assist- ing on the " CupDay." Transactions at the Rooms in the morn- ing were limited to an outlay on Underhand, about whom 700 to 200 was booked, and then the horse receded to 4 to 1, his starting price, at which figure he was backed for a heap of money. The racing was resumed with the Two Year Old Stakes, which proved an easy victory for Mainstay ; a " good thing" next turning up in The Martlett, who as easily pulled off tbe City Handicap. This introduced tbe Tradesmen's Plate, for which eleven competitors were expected, but Mongrel being struck out at half- past three o'clock, ten only sported silk. Com- motioa, as at Chester, maintained the premiership to the c close, but, as we have already inferred, the chief invest- ** ments were on Underhand, who fully realised the confidence of his stable, by winning oue of the finest and most exciting contests over this turf, the deep ground evidently suiting him, coupled with the skilful pilotage of George Oates. The " bull's- eye" was again hit iu the selection of General Williams for the Maiden Plate, who pulled through after a fine race with the Chanticleer oolt— who was afterwards named Ducrow. On the strength of her performance yesterday odds were betted on Manganese for the Chesterfield Handicap— next on the card; but it was reserved for her stable companion, Giede Hawk, to do the trick, to the no ordinary chagrin of the backers of the mare. Of the quartette showing for the Queen's guineas Mary alone received attention ; her defeat, however, was HO less de- plored tnan the suecess of Sir Colin was extraordinary, the latter tearing away like a wild'un, going all the faster the more Ford- ham pulled at him, and with the exception of Norton running everything else to a stand- still. With this unlooked- for de- nouement, the sports were concluded shortly after six o'clock. A gay assemblage of ladies graced the balcony of the Stand, and amongst the male portion of the visitors were the Duke of Beau- fort, Earl Suffolk, Lord W. Powlett, Hon H. Fitzroy, Sir T. Hesketh, Bart, M. P., Sir John Potter, M. P., R. de Trafford, Esq, W. S. S. Crawfurd, Esq, C. P. Leslie, Esq, H. L. Trafford, Esq, H. Padwick, Esq, W. Copeland, Esq, Rudston Read, Esq, Capt Little, & c. Friday's card, which looked tbe least promising, oddly enough furnished the best day's sport of the week, heads or necks being Mr Johnson's decisions in every event, and the results, excepting a small selling stake, entirely in the fielders' favour. The mud had dried under tbe fierce rays of the sun during the forenoon, and so restored the excellent going that favoured the commencement of the meeting, whilst the rush of company, plebeian and otherwise, sustained the spirit of the protracted undertaking to a degree that must have been highly gratifying to its promoters. Though usually contriving to pull off a thing or two over their " own ground," it was not; till the " Wilton" came for decision that the Saxon confederacy scored tbeir first and only run of luck by the aid of Princess Royal. But the genuine " good thing" turned up in the success of Ellermire in the Salford Cup, the winner, we believe, not being supported for a shilling; all the money was piled upon Romeo, who struggled on to the finish, but only obtained the fourth position, having evidently not recovered the severe jour ney of the previous day ; Sir Colin, second favourite, being simi- larly affected. The pace was clipping from start to finish, and the issue one of the most gallant on record, We must reiterate our testimony to the completeness of the official department, and of the unflagging diligence and tact of Mr Bake, and his able SALE OF BLOOD STOCK AND HUNTERS BY MESSRS TATTERSALL. THE MIDDLE PARK ( MR BLENKIRON'S) YEARLINGS- The annual sale of the above establishment, which— although not on quite so large a scale as that of Rawcliffe, is perfect in every respect as regards management and accommodation for blood stock— took place on Wednesday afternoon, on the pre- mises situate in the most picturesque part of the pretty little village of Eltham. Notwithstanding the morning in London had been showery, a goodly muster of noblemen and gentlemen of the Turf were present, who, after partaking of a very hand- some cold collation, to which an inexhaustible supply of cham- pagne was added, proceeded to inspect the yearlings ; and the cordial testimony which was borne to tbeir condition, re- flected the highest credit on Mr Blenkiron and his stud groom. Mr Tattersall, a' the appointed hour, mounted the rostrum, and the result of his eloquence will be found in the figures below. The sale on the whole was most successful, and promises to form au a^ eable " ouf'. for an off- day between the Epsom aud Ascot weeks. Amongst those present we noticed the Earl of Derby, the ttSman^ A! coadjutors ; alsoshould be mentioned the excellent order pre- wlu^ k.^ iv ® '^. l^ wT' rVlLAr, chr. i' served on tbe course by police under the command of Mr Super- Williamson, Magennis, Bernard, R.

Plausible and Cora Linne, with the favourite at their heels, raced for the lead into the straight, when the former showed slightly in advance. At the distance Cora fell back, and Glede Hawk took her place next to Eller- mire, but both failed to reach Plausible, who won easily by a length ; the third finishing a head from the second, and a good length in advance of the fourth. Echo, who got off badly, was last throughout. The SEVENTH MANCHESTER PRODUCE STAKES of 10 sovs each, h ft, with 100 added, for three year olds; colts 8st 71b, fillies Sst 3lb ; winners of any race amounting to the clear value of 500 sovs 5lb, of 1,000 10lb, and the second in any stake amount- ing to 1,000 5lb extra; those by horses or out of mares whose produce have never wsn allowed 31b, if both 5lb; the second to receive 50 sovs out of the stakes; one mile and three quarters ; 66 subs. t Admiral Harcourt's b c Wardermarske, by Bird- catcher, 8st 41b Aldcroft 1 X Mr T.

The flag falling when the latter was a length or two in advance, he made play with a clear lead past the Stand, the favourite lying second, and Norton next. Iu this order they entered the straight, wheu the pace improved, and Wardermarske closing with the leader at the distance, headed him half- way up, and won iu a canter by two lengths, a length each dividing second, third, and fourth. The UNION CUP of 200 sovs, in specie, added to a Handicap of 5 sovs each, for three year olds and upwards; winners after May 12 of any race of the value of 200 sovs 5lb, of two or more 7ib, and if of the value of 500 sovs 101b, the second 5lb extra; no horse more than 101b extra; the second to receive 20 sovs out of the stakes, and the winner to pay 10 sovs towards expenses; about one mile and a quarter ; 67 subs.

Two failures occurred owing to the fractiousness of Bel Esperanza, but at length the signal was given to a splendid start. It was impossible to assign advantage to either until approaching the lower enclosure, when Breeze, Bel Esperanza, and Fright showed in advance, and ran together past the Stand, the next trio at their heels, also side by side, heiEg Hospitality Old Tom, and Princess of Orange; Courteuay and Bourgeois heading the ruck, at the tail of which were Pera and King Brian, Red Robin bringing up the extreme rear. At the turn beyond Breeze assumed the command, but beat a retreat in the next hundred yards, where Fright, with Old Tom at his quarters, took up the running. Along the far side half a dozen lengths separated this pair from Bel Esperanza, 2 BELL'S LIFE IN LONDON, JUNE 14, 1857. ho was succeeded by Bourgeois, Courtenay, Hospitality, and i freeze in a cluster, next to whom lay Stork, De Ginkel, and Saraband. On the retirement of Old Tom, soon after passing the half- mile post, Bel Esperanza became the follower of Fright into the straight, where she gave way to Bourgeois, Courtenay, and Hospitality. Inside the distance the latter ran into second place, but without being approached Fright won in a canter by a length. Courtenay made his effort half way up, swerved across the course, aud finished under the judge's box, just contriving in the last stride to secure the second money by a head from Hospitality, who defeated Bourgeois by the same. Six lengths from them, Stork, De Ginkel, and Saraband, ran home together, after them Breeze, Bel Esperanza, King Brian, and Pera; Bed Robin whipping in all the way. The SAPLING STAKES of 10 sovs each, h ft, with 100 added, for two year olds; colts 8st 71b, fillies 8st 4lb; winners of the clear Value of 200 sovs 3lb, or of 500 clear 71b extra; the winner to pay 10 sovs towards expenses, and the second to receive 25 sovs out of the stakes; T.

The favourite took a clear lead at starting, and was followed for about fifty yards by Knockburn, who then gave way in succession to Flying Duke, Tom Linne, Intercidona, and Spread Eagle. Thus they ran to the straight, where Tom was disposed of, as were the others at the distance, the favourite, without being approached, winning in a canter by four lengths, and the third finishing two lengths from the second, with an advantage of a length over the fourth. Patience and Tom Linue were next past the post, Prince of Den- mark ( who lost start) seventh, and Knockburn last. The TRAFFORD HANDICAP of 5 sovs each, with 50 added, for all ages ; winners after May 12 of any race value 100 sovs 51b extra; one mile; 14 subs. MrW. H.

After two or three failures Manganese rushed to the front, made all the running, and won easily by a length; Lady Hercules getting up at the finish and depriving the favourite of second honours by a head in almost the last stride; a bad fourth, Evelyn was fifth, and Blight next. THURSDAY.— The Two YEAR OLD STAKES of 10 sovs each, h ft, with 50 added, for two year olds; colts 8st 71b, fillies 8st 41b; the second to save his stake; winners of any race value 200 sovs 3lb, of 500 71b extra; T.

After one false start the favourite, followed by Jack Horner and Hesperithusa, made play to the straight, where the three joined abreast to the distance, inside which the last named filly was beaten, and Mainstay going on with the running, won easily by a length; the third beaten two lengths from the second, aud Soothsayer, in the rear throughout, a length from her. The CITY HANDICAP PLATE of 70 sovs, for all ages ; entrance 2 sovs ; the winner of any race after May 12 5lb, of two 71b extra; three quarters of a mile.

De Ginkel, with Bourgeois, Sulpitia, and Ellermire at his heels, The Martlet lying off, ran in front to the distance, where the latter crept up next the rails, headed his horses half way up, and won cleverly by three quarters of a. length ; a length between second and third. The favourite was a bad fourth, Breeze fifth, Frodsham Squire and Ellermire next, whipped in by Red White and Blue. The MANCHESTER TRADESMEN'S CUP of 200 sovs, in specie, added to a Handicap of 20 sovs each, h ft, and 5 if declared, & c; winuers of any race after May 12 of the value of 200 sovs 5lb, of two or more 71b, or one of 500 101b, and the second 5lb extra ; no horse more than 10lb extra; the second to receive B0 sovs out of the stakes, aud the winner to pay 25 towards expenses; two miles and a quarter; 46 subs, 27 of whom pay 5 sovs each.

The flag fell to a pretty start at the first attempt, whenUnderhand and Silkmore, in advance, cannoned in getting off, and the latter was driven on to the rails. He was, however, instantly in his place again, and after the first fifty yards took up the running, succeeded at the Stand, in Indian file and in the order named, by Underhand, Oommotion, Brother to Preston, Vandal, Companion, Romeo, Janet, Pizarro, and Gortschakoff. After rounding the upper turn, Silkmore increased the lead to seven or eight lengths, but no change occurred until nearing the T. Y. C. post, when Under- hand was pulled back, and Companion became second. As they turned into the straight the lot took closer order, so that on re- passing the Stand the leader's advantage was reduced to little more than a length. His immediate followers at that point were Companion and Brother to Preston, the favourite lying at their heels, Underhand and Romeo next, side by side, Vandal and Janet also coupled behind them, with Pizarro no w in the rear. At about the centre of the back stretch, Companion headed Silkmore **" for a few strides, and then dropped into his former position, but the other shutting up suddenly in the next dozen yards, he dis- appeared altogether from the front, and Companion was left in command. He was followed to the bottom the last time by Brother to Preston, who there too closed accounts, whereupon Commotion, Romeo, and Janet, with Underhand in waiting, drew up to Mr Howard's horse, who, being in trouble soon after entering the straight, Janet, with tho favourite and the top weight at her shoulders, obtained the lead just outside the dis- tance. Half- way up Commotion was in difficulties, and Romeo tiring at the lower enclosure, Underhand bore his colours in ad- vance, at the upper end thereof, and won a fine race by half a length; Commotion beaten two lengths from the mare, and finishing a head before Romeo. Three lengths off Vandal was fifth, Pizarro sixth, and Companion seventh; Gortschakoff and Brother to Preston were the next two, Silkmore cantering in last of all.

The running was made by St Patrick, followed in a cluster by Josephine, the Lady Jersey colt, Frodsham Squire, and Six and Eightpence, the latter, through the forward horses running rather wide, obtaining the lead at the turn going out. Along the far side she was succeeded in the srder named by the favourite, Princess of Orange, St Patrick, and Ducrow. Turn- ing the straight the latter, with General Williams, went up to the leader, and racsd with her to the distance, where she was in difficulties, and left the favourite and the grey to fight it out. A head and head race ensued, the General holding a little the best of it all the way up. and obtaining ihe fiat by a neck. An in- terval of two lengths divided second and third; bad fourth, Canary and Frodsham Squire being fifth and sixth, Princess of Orange next, the Lady Jersey colt cantering a long way after everything else.

Political differences,; arising out of the late elections* caused a split amongst the supporters of racing in West- meath ; hence the meeting now under notice, which took place in the early part of the past week, and which we are glad to say was attended with the most complete success, the racing being the best that has ever taken piace over the Newbrook Course, ihe principal race on the first day resulted in thesucGesa of an outsider, Capt Nugent's Crystal, very well ridden by Bro- derick, winning easily, Escape, the favourite, evidently not liking the state of the ground, which was rather holding. Chance and W mdfall lost all chance by going on the wrong side of a flag at the fourth last fence. The Selling Race was indifferently contested, Ihe Heiress winning easily. A Hack Race brought the day's sport to a close at six o'clock. The sport on the second day was still better, the Handicap, one of the best ever made, being won m three heats by Chance, by the shortest of distances, and the belling Stakes by Laundress, after a slashing race, The weather was highly favourable, and the attendance equally as large as on the previous day; and altogether the meeting may be pronounced the most successful that has taken place for some time at Westmeath. The next meeting at Mullingar wiil come off early m September, and from the exertions that are making by the club, a large gathering of Turfites, with some first- class " legitimate" sport, may be looked for- ward to. On the coming occasion it is to be hoped that the railway company may have a better understanding with the committee, so that nothing may stand in the way of the complete success of the meeting. We append a return :— MONDAY, JUNE l.- The WESTMEATH HANDICAP of 4 sovs eaeh, 2 ft, with 50 added; the second to save his stake, and the winner to pay 5 sovs to the fund; heats, two miles; 9 subs.

The Laundress took the lead to the second fence beyond the Stand, where she bolted out of the course, leaving the lead with Chance, who, attended on either side by The Hunstman's Horn and Windfall, made the running to the fourth fence from home, when, swerving, she jumped it on the wrong side of the flag, and, carrying Windfall with her, both were out of the race. Huntsman's Horn then took the lead, which he held over the last fence, when Crystal joined him, and, after a pretty race, woja by two lengths.— Second heat: Even on Crystal, who made nearly all the running, and won in a canter by four lengths.

FIEST'S RACING RECORD.— A further edition of this useful little work was published on the first of the month, containing a complete calendar of sport up to the day of publication, in ad- dition to other useful matter. HARPBNDEN RACES.— The committee, anxious to testify their acknowledgments to those gentlemen who for so many years past have officiated as stewards here, gave a dinner on Thursday week, at the Bull Inn, which was attended by a large and in- fluential muster of the well- wishers and subscribers to Harpen- den Races. The repast, provided by Mr W. Fuller, was all that the most fastidious could desire. The chair was occupied by C. E. Prime, Esq, and the vice- chair by W. Reed, Esq, and the entertainment past off with the greatest hilarity. Messrs Holmes and M'Davitt, the vocalists, were engaged to entertain the company, and their performances were highly relished. NEWTON RACES.— A match for 100 a side, 50 ft, has been made between Mr Wainwright's Oscar, aged, against Mr Jones's Forest Lad, aged, 12st each; two miles; gentlemen riders. HEREFORD RACES.— We are requested to remind owners and trainers that several stakes close on the Tuesday after Ascot.— See advertisement. An endeavour is being made to establish flat races and a steeple chase on some ground adjacent to the Reyal Pavilion Gardens at North Woolwich.

Mr Howard has sold Saraband and Martinet to Lord William Powlett. Windy Cap and Caledon are dead. DESTRUCTION BY FIEE OP THE OLD RUBBING HOUSE ON EPSOM DOWNS.— On Wednesday night, between ten and eleven o'clock, a fire broke out at the old Rubbing House on Epsom Downs. The parish engine was sent for, but although four of Mr Lumley's best horses were attached to it, owing to its not having been in use or kept in repair they were unable to put it in motion. The fire therefore proceeded without interruption, and the whole of the house and stables were destroyed, including some valuable property. We are happy to state, however, that no persons were injured. From various threats made by gipsies, it is supposed that the fire was the act of an incendiary. the chase. THE ATHERSTONE ( MR SELBY LOWNDES'S) HOUNDS. MR EDITOB : As a native of the woodlands, I beg leave to say that this part of the country has not been at all fairly hunted. The hounds never meet now at Corley, Arley, or Maxstoke; seldom at Birchley Hays. Some years ago the woods used to be surrounded by guns, and the foxes shot down like wolves, be- cause the hounds never came, and I should not be at all sur- prised if a similar spirit should again be roused in this district.— Yours, & c, A WOODMAN. Fox KILLING.— DISGBACEPUL PBOCEEDING.— Mr Editor On Friday evening last, the bellman went round the town of Knaresborough, announcing that at eight o'clock a fox would be turned down in the Market place. At that hour a very large concourse of people were collected, and a man of the name of Abbott, a gardener, brought in a hamper a live vixen fox with a brooken foot, which he had^ caught in a steel trap. The police attempted to interfere, but as there were only two of them, they could do no good. The fox was turned out, and kicked about by the mob, its leg broken, and its brush cut off when the wretched animal was alive. It was ultimately killed by sticks and kicks. Now, we do protest against a mob of the lowest order being summoned together for such a scene as this. Had it taken place in any of our large towns, the man Abbott would have been taken forthwith to the lock- up. If characters like Abbott are to beallowed with impunity; to collect a large mob for such cruelty, the sooner our laws are amended the better; but we believe he has laid himself open to a serious charge, the punishment for which would deter him from again creating such a disturbance. Would you be kind enough to insert this, as it is a disgrace to our foxhunting district.— Yours, & c, A SUB- SCRIBBR.— June 4,1857. HUNTSMAN CHANGES.— John Tredwell, late of the Essex, is now huntsman to Lord Stamford; Charles Ward, late first whip to Lord Southampton, has succeeded Simkins as huntsman to Lord Darces; JackGoddard, late of the Shropshire, has gone to Mr Tailby's; and John Dinnicomb, late of the New Forest Hounds, to the Blackmore Vale. We are also informed that Charles Roberts, late of the South Oxfordshire, is to hunt the Duhallow ( Lord Doneraile's). Sam Dowdeswell, late First Whip to Lord Middleton's Fox- hounds, Malton, begs through the columns of Bell's Life to re- turn his most grateful thanks to the gentlemen farmers for their very handsome present, a silver huntsman's horn, received a fortnight back, on his leaving that neighbourhood to hunt the South Oxfordshire Foxhounds, belonging to the Earl of Maccles- field, of Sherburn Castle. l 2 0 . .. . 3 Mr Carter's b m Emily, 4 yrs, Sst 111b J.

Master Frank, in company with Crystal aud Chance, made the running for half a mile, when the former dropping off, the two mares went on together, an exciting struggle to the chair ending in favour of Charm by a head.— Second heat: The Harper, Crystal, and Chance lay in front throughout, the former winning, lifter a tremendous struggle, by a short head, the two mares mnning so level the judge was unable to award the second place to either.— Third neat: The lead was taken by Restless for two or three fields, when he gave way to Emily, who forced the running to the third last fences where she fell, and, rolling over, caught the Harper as he landed.

SALE OF MR PATERSON'S GREYHOUNDS.— A correspondent writes as follows:—" Knowing your anxiety to have all sporting matters inserted in your valuable columns, I beg to hand you a return of the sale of Messrs Paterson and Swan's kennel of greyhounds, which came off at Dycer's Repository, in Dublin, on the 23d of May. Being within a few miles of the Irish capi- tal, I got to the sale just in time to see Susan Whitehead ( the winner of the 88 dog stake at Biggar last season) knocked d ® wn for 29 guineas, and could scarcely credit that the original pro- gramme of sale was being acted up to ( viz, bond fide and without reserve), until I saw into whose hands she had passed. I must admit I was highly delighted in having an opportunity of seeing such a class of greyhounds exposed for public competition in a country where coursing is upon the ascendant, especially the Black Agnes and Sweetbriar saplings; and, taking the whole kennel into consideration, every credit was due to the trainer for the blooming condition in which he brought his dogs to the hammer, and many were the high eulogiums passed upon himo The following was the net amount, viz, 224 guineas." [ We have received no account of the above sale either from the auctioneer or our own correspondent stationed in Dublin.— ED J DEATH OP A VALUABLE GREYHOUND.— Mr Davis's brindled bitch Old Jemima, by Bake's Buzzard out of Faith, by Ben- nett's Rocket, died en the 18th ult, when whelping to Mathe- matic. Only one whelp is alive, namely, a brindled dog. She would have been 15 or 16 years old on the 10th of July next, and ran at times even last season like a yeung one. Her owner never ran her in a public stake, owing to her being so great a pet. She was open, however, to all comers for a match, and up to five years old was never beaten, and never lost a match, winning about fifty. She was the dam of many winners— her last litter was by Mr J. Brown's Bedlam Tom, of which three are alive- Bedlam, Young Jemima, and the white dog Clipper, all good runners. She may be classed as one of the most extraordinary animals ever known. TROTTING. MATCH AGAINST TIME.— A match, for £ 10, between Mr John Roberts of Newport and Mr C. B. Palmer of the Railway Hotel, Dock- street, Newport, came off on Tuesday, and attracted con- siderable attention amongst local sporting circles; Mr Palmer's grey horse Chanticleer being backed to trot in harness nine miles on the highway within an hour. The ground chosen for the event was the Newport and Pontypool road, an up- hill and down- dale tract of country, and having every variety of curves and windings. The grey having been driven to the starting- point, Mr C. Poole assumed the reins, and the word;" off" was given; the grey took the road at an easy yet rattling pace. The task was performed, without a break, in minutes, having 15i minutes to spare. The feat is the more remarkable when it is considered that Messrs Palmer, Roberts, and Poole were in tha " trap," and weighing upwards of 40st. Wm. Cole of Waterloo- road, Liverpool, will trot his roan cob Tommy against John De Costa's brown mare Jenny,; three miles on any road within 10 miles of Liverpool, for from £ 100 to £ 500. Money ready at the Masonic Arms, 23, Waterloo- road, Liverpool.

The benefit in aid of the funds of this association is fixed, as our readers are aware, for Monday week, being the night before the exciting fight for the championship, between the Tipton Slasher and Tom Sayers, when both men will show, and afford their friends an opportunity of judging of their condition. Ehe fixture will also be made known to tho initiated, and all par- ticulars relative te this most important affair may be ascertained. It is full six months since a benefit took place iu aid of the funds, and as for some time the expenses have far exceuded the income, the funds are in anything hut a prosperous state. We, therefore, earnestly appeal to all lovers of British boxing to come forward on this occasion, and lend a helping hand to keep on foot au institution without which pugilism must quickly sink into decav. We also appeal to tSio members of the associa- tion to come " forward, one and ail, and give us their pledges, during the present week, that they will attend on the eventful day, and set- to for the entertainment of their patrons, and also for the support of that association which alone keeps the more respectable members of the profession together, aud ensures them that fair play which is the soul of match making. The following is a list of the present effective members, some of whom are in training, but of whom there are still sufficient to ensure a brilliant display on so important an occasion:— Ben Caunt, Harry Broome, Ned Adams, Charley George, Alec Keene, the Bold Bendigo, George Baker, Tom Paddock, Jem Ward, Billy Duncan, Nied Donnelly, Horrigau, Charley Mallett, Sam Martin, The Wyehwood Forester, George Brown, Harry Orme, Fred Dickenson, Dan Collins, George Crockett, Young Reed, Jerry Noon, Joe Rowe, Mike Madden, Bill Barry, Nat Langham, Spider, Bill Hayes, Jack Grant. Young Sambo, Massey, Fred Mason, Dick' Hart, The Chelsea Doctor, Jemmy Welsh, Dau M'Nulty, Alf Walker, Jack Hicks, Tom Mose, Jack Keefe, Harry Brunton, Jem Cross, Jemmy Shaw, Hazeltine, Aaron Jones, Jack Hannau, Harrington, Joe Phelps, JesseHattou, the Brothers Tyler, Young Norton, Rowe's Mouse, Morris Roberts, and C. Lynch. We trust the majority of these men will send in to us early in the week their promises of assistance, in order that we may, on Sunday next, lay before our readers such a programme as will induce a monster gathering. We do not know whether Beudigoor Harry Broome will come to town to witness the contest for au honour each iti turn has earned, but if they do, it would afford their friends great pleasure to witness an encounter between them, as it would also if J8m Ward a'. id his friend Mat Robinsoniof Liverpool could be induced to don the mittens together. Tass Parker also might file his account in attending on this occasion, and we shall be obliged by hearing from him. We may state that, in selection of the ring keepers on Tuesday week, those who con- sent to set- to on the previous evening will have the preference. The entertainment wili take place at the Chandos- street Rooms. THE CHAMPIONSHIP. TOM SAYERS AND THE TIPTON SLASHER.— The fourteenth deposit of £ 20 a side for this important event was duly made, at Owen Swift's, Horse Shot!, Titehbourne- street, Haymarket, on Tuesday last, in the presence of an immense concourse of spectators. A good deal of betting took place— the Tipton, of course, being the favourite— at 6 and 7 to 4. The backers of Sayers were anxious to get on, and at 7 to 4 a good deal of busi- ness might have been done. Report speaks highly of the con- dition of both men. The Tipton is said to be better iu every way than he has been for years; while Sayers is not iu a less healthful state, both of mind ana body. The excitement about the match, as the day approaches, is so great, that we fully anticipate the greatest muster that was ever known at a ring side. Where it can come off, it is of course impossible to say at present, but iu our next we shall go into the matter at full length, and give our readers all the information in our power as to the event. The final deposit of £ 40 a side is to be made at Mr Newbam's, Ship Tavern, Hanover- court, Long- acre, on Thursday evening next, wheu preliminaries will be duly settled. A gallant mill took plice on Tuesday last between G. Lang ( brother- in- law of Job Cobley) and Jack Cain ( brother of Bill Cain), for £ 5 a side, and after a most slaughtering fight of 42 minutes poor Jack Cain was obliged to succumb, being in almost total darkuess. Cain was backed from the Bumper Inn, and Lang from Mr Larke's, Black Swan, Leicester. A fight took place ou Thursday week near Newport, Mon- mouthshire, between Bob Hurd of Frome and John Gillingharu of Bridgewater, for £ 2 a side. It lasted 45 minutes, during which 17 rounds were fought, and was won by Hurd with com- parative ease. CAUNT AND NAT LANGHAM.— The fifth deposit of £ 10 a side, for this match, was duly posted at the Brown Bear, on Wednes- day evening. The sixth, of £ 10 a side, is to be made good at Ben Caunt's, Coach and Horses, St Martin's- lane, on Wednes- day evening next. We have this week received a letter from Nat Langham, whofaucies that Caunt's letter in our last was an attack upon him, and that Caunt intended to cast a doubt upon his courage and integrity. We are satisfied that Ben uever in- tended anything of the kind, but as Nat seems anxious on the subject, we lay his communication before cur readers.— Mr Editor: I should sot have thought of requesting the favour of inserting any remarks with respect to my match with Caunt, had not an intimation been made to me that a total silence on my part, after tho communication from Caunt inserted in your last, might possibly be misconstrued by the public. The kind- ness I ever received when an active member of the Ring, and the generous support I have met with since, emboldens me to hope that any assurance of honourable intentions are unnecessary on my part, or that any solemn assertions are required to induce my friends to believe that when I throw my cap into the ring on the 22d of September, I shall do so with the same feelings I have ever entertained on former similar occasions, and with the same determination to win, if possible. I am as anxious as Caunt can be for a meeting in the ring; when there I shall be prepared to abide by the articles, and until then I will avail myself of no loophole which accident may afford, of creeping out and avoiding the issue which can alone decide which is the better man. Let lis, Mr Editor, trouble you no more with our letters. Let us meet like men. fight like men, and let' the best mau win. I will do my utmost to deserve the kind support which has been pro- mised by my friends, and to sustain the character I shall, I trust, never lose— that of a brave and honourable man. Trusting to your well- known kindness to insert the above, I am, yours, & e, NAT LANGHAM, Cambrian Stores, Castle- street, June 4th.— The letter on tho subject of deposits we are again compelled to omit by want of space. Ben Caunt wishes us to state that ho is already doing gentle work, in order to get himself tolerably fit for the arduous task of training. He plays quoits at the White Bear, Kennington, for several hours every day, aud has already made a considerable reduction in his weight. JOSEPH FAULKNER AND MORRIS ROBERTS'S DARKY.— These men were matched to fight at catch weight, for £ 10 a side, and it was arranged that articles should be drawn up at the second deposit, which took place, making it £ 1 a side; but when the parties met, the Black refused to agree to any terms. Fauikuer, under these circumstances, considers he is entitled to the money down, as he was ready to go on with the match, and fight any- where. If it was clear that Darky would not agree to any- terms, we would advise the stakeholder to hand the money to Faulkner. BRETTLE AND COBLEY.— The third deposit of £ 10 a side for this match was made at Solid Coates' 3, Old Crown, Tower- street, Birmingham, on Tuesday last. The next, of a like amount, is due at Jemmy Massey ' s, Crowu, Cranbourne- passage, on Tuesday next. Job Cobley arrives in town ou Monday, and will take up his quarters at Ben Cauut's, Coach and Horses, St Martin's- laue, Erevious to going into training. Brettle requests us to state that e took a bet of £ 100 to £ 80 that he beat Cobley, and not vice versa, as stated in our last. YOUNG RILEY AND RAEFERTY.— The whole of the money, £ 20 a side, has been made good by these Birmingban men to tho stakeholder, Mr Tailby, for their match, which comes off to- morrow, within 60 miles of home. Riley having won tha toss, they weigh the morning of fighting at a well- known sporting house. Report speaks well of the condition of both men, and a merry mill is anticipated. The whereabouts may be known at all the sporting houses in Birmingham. MORRELL AND DAYIES.— We understand that both these men have been apprehended and bound over to keep the peace, and we have been written to by both parties to know what they are to do. As they are bound over for twelve months we would advise a draw, but if either party is averse to this they must make their deposits and fight when their time shall have expired. We have received £ 2 10s from each man this week. CHARLESWOETH AND SPEIGHT.— Respecting this affair, Speight writes to say he is, and always has been, anxious to increase the stakes to £ 25 a side, and fight the Monday after their recognisances expire. He says he will meet Charlesworth any night next week at the Bay Horse, Hunslet Carr, and put more money down. The better way would be for each man to send us £ 5 in token of his being in earnest. M'NULTY AND PARKINSON.— A match has been made, and £ 1 a side staked in our bauds, between Patsy M'Nully and W. Par- kinson, who are to fight for £ 10 a side, on the 6th of July, in the Dudley district.

WALKER AND SMITH.— The second deposit of £ 5 a side be- tween Alf Walker and Tom Smith is to be made at Mr Pace's, Plough and Harrow, Battersea Fields, on Tuesday next. WELSH AND MASSEY,— Jemmy Massey, in answer to Welsh's challenge, says it will not suit him to fight at present, as he is in a very good business and his house is undergoing alterations which require his constant supervision, Should he ever alter his mind he begs us to assure Welsh that he will give him the first turn. We have communicated this fact to Welsh, who ex- presses his surprise at Massey's refusal, but who says he does not desire paper war, personal invectives, nor private broils, but when Massey alters his mind will still be prepared to make a match. Bos Tyler is surprised at not hearing from George Crockett after his late vaunting challenge. If Crockett really means business he can be accommodated with a match for £ 100 a side, at 9st 101b, at any time he pleases.

PEDESTRIANISM AT GARRAT4- LANE, WANDSWORTH- Last Monday being an almost universal holiday, every suburban portion of the metropolis held out its tempting and varied attractions to procure the attendance and patronage of har Majesty's liege subjects, each iu its own particular locality- yachting, cricketing, wrestling, railroad excursions, al fresco entertainments, in addition to the many dramatic and other ex- hibitions with which this great city abounds, all, all held out their seductive lures to please the eyes and lighten the pockets of our right- merry and si^ ht- seakiug fellow- citizer. s, to carry out which the " clerk of the weather" seemed to have taken a most good- natured part, for never do we recollect a finer Whitsuntide, nor one which afforded a more unalloyed opportunity of enjoying every festive scene. Our present observations, however, must be confined, as may be inferred from the heading of this article, to that manly and healthfulpagtime— pedestrianism. Mr Sadler, the proprietor of the enclosed running grounds at Garratt- laue, Wandsworth, with his wonted spirit aud liberality, had for some time previous aunounced his intention of giving £ 15 to be run for ia a handicap of ten miles. The money to be distributed thus: £ 10 for the winning man, £ 2 for the second, and £ 1 for the third. This glittering temptation induced no less than fourteen of our most noted pedestrians to enter their names for the contest; of these, however, but eleven made their appear- ance iu the arena, Messrs Baines, Luke, and Taylor having ab- sented themselves. The following are the names of the con- tending parties, and the relative positions they occupied at the start:— James Pudusy at scratch; Wm. Jacksou a quarter of a minute start; Charles Cooke of Marylebone aud Henry Andrews of Holborn, one minute and a half; Thos. Cummins of Notting Hill and Wm. Newman of London, three minutes; John Little- wood of London, Thomas Ward of Maryleboue, and C. Ferguson of London, five minutes; F. Dixon of London and E. Goddard of Islington six minutes. The men were handicapped by, and the whole matter under the management and supervision of Bill Price, an experienced hand in all such affairs, and his arrangement of the day's sports gave general satisfaction. Shortly after five o'clock the above- mentioned competitors started at the specified intervals. Puduey had nearly overtaken Jackson in the first mile, and, waiting closely on him in the second and third, passed him in the fourth ; he also gave Andrews the go- by in the sixth mile, at which time Jackson, Andrews, Newman, Littlevvood, Ward, Ferguson, aud Goddard respectively dropped off, aud in the last lap of the ninth mile Cooke, being suddenly seized with a stitch in his side, was reluctantly compelled to call a halt. The contest now lay between Pudney, Cummins, and Dixon; but the long start which the latter had ( six minutes), and in which he covered a mile and upwards of one hundred yards, told effectually iu his favour, and he ran in the winner, leaving Cummins about twenty yards behind him, and Pudney coming in third. The prize money was paid immediately after the race, by Mr Sadler, to the successful competitors. Two MILES RACE EOR A SILVER SNUFF- BOX.— This event came on for decision immediately after the above match, when the following men came to the starting- post, viz, James Ma- honey, Baines, Hobbs, Castell, Barb, Ellis, Laugham, and Little- wood. Ou the start being made the competitors dashed off well together, but they had not gone more than two laps wheu the superiority of Manoney became so apparent that he was left almost in undisputed possession of the field. He now had the race entirely in his own hand, aud ran in the winner with the greatest possible easa— Langham being the only one ( with the exception of Mahoney) who ran the distance fairiy out. BARB AND WILLIAMS.— These men had a spin of 150 yards, for £ 5 a side, Barb getting a start of four yards. At the third attempt a good start was effected ; but Barb was never over- taken, and eventually proved the winner by about ouo yard. He can have the stakes by calling on us next Thursday, at twelve o'clock. TUESDAY.— MARKS AND REED,— The only match of to- day was a spin of 150 yards, for £ 10 aside, between Thomas Marks of Wandsworth and Edwin Reed of Bermondsey; both men, though very young, have figured before the public on several occasions, Marks having defeated Rushton, Corley, and several others in well contested spriut matches, whilst Reed has proved the victor against Sam Wallace, Phillips of Bermondsey, Buuyan of the London- road, James Stainor of Portland- town, & c, & c. Both men appeared in first rate fettle, and were well matched in years and appearance, Reed a trifle the taller. Betting 5 aud 6 to 4 on Reed. Umpires and a referee having been duly ap- pointed, the meu toed the scratch at a quarter past five o'clock. By the articles they were to start by mutual consent, a mode of procedure to which we are decidedly hostile, as the delays con- sequent upon the one trying to get the better of his opponent at the start, generally speaking, causes the greatest dissatisfaction amongst tne spectators, and deadens their interest in the match. On the present occasion the parties were not less than one hour and a quarter at the scratch, during which time some thirty or forty false moves took place ; at last they got off pretty well together, Marks with a very trifling advantage, which he main- tained for about fifty yards, when Reed breasted him, and they ran together pari passu, till within a couple of paces of the handkerchief, here Reed threw himself forward by a great ex- ertion, and landed himself a winner by about four inches. Reed can have the stakes by calling at our office on Thursday next at twelve o'clock. PEDESTRIANISM AT BIRMINGHAM AND DISTRICTS- The visit of the Duke of Cambridge to the hardware town on Monday iast, to open Calthorpe Park, and his visit to the dif- ferent manufactories ou the Tuesday, superseded all ether arrangements that might have been made for pedestrian or other sports. The duke was the cry— far and near— and there- fore we have nothing hardly worth recording, with the excep- tion of a six score yards race that came off between F. HARRIS and GEORGE MOUNTFORD, at the early hour of nine on the morning of Monday, on the Warwick road, between the first and second milestones, for £ 5 a side. The men were well matched as to height and weight (' tis said it was their first essay, but from their manner of getting off and general appear- ance our reporter doubts the fact), aud each appeared in first- rate condition. Thniv was ularaD . ntiafaw j There a large muster oil the ground, and betting was 3 to 2 ou Mountford at first, but afterwards came to evens. After ten minutes dodging, the men got away, Harris taking the lead, which he kept throughout, aud rau iu a winner by two yards. MATTHEWSON of Birmingham and T. JACKSON of Chelten- ham met at Aston Cross, on the 30th ult, to run their mile match, for £ 5 a side. Both men came to the scratch in first- rate trim, and on the word being given they bounded away, Matthewson with a yard lead, and at the fourth lap— half a mile — was leading by 20 yards. Although Jackson tried hard, he had no chance of getting near his opponent, who went steadily through his work and went iu a winner by 20 yards. Jackson appeared completely beat out. KETTLEY AND. NICHOLLS.— These Birmingham men met after the above race tojrun six score yards, for £ 3 a side. Betting, level. Kettley got a yard start and managed to keep the lead up to three score, when Nicholls caught him, and after a struggle for a few yards Nicholls took the lead and went iu a winner by two yards. T. CAIN AND W. COLEY.— These Birmingham men have made their money—£ 5 a side— good to Coates, the stakeholder, for their six score yards match, which comes off to- morrow ( Mon- day), at Aston Cross Grounds. Men to be at scratch at half- past ten, and to start by mutual consent; if no start, to go by first pull of handkerchief. LITTLEHAYES AND SHAKESPEAR.— These men have made good their money for a half mile race for £ 5 a side, which comes off to- morrow at three o'clock, near the Peeble Mill, on the Pershore road. DEARDEN AND MARGETTS.— The match of 100 yards, for £ 25 a side, is off, Margetts forfeiting the £ 5 down.' Dearden wishes us to inform Margetts, as he does not appear to fancy him, he has a novice he will back to run him 120 yards for from £ 15 up to £ 25 a side, half way between home and home. If a deposit is left with the Editor of Bell's Life, and articles are sent to Powell's, Rodney Inn, Hurst- street, Birmingham, a match can be made. DAN HARTLEY will run T. Aston or J. Hall, six score yards, for £ 5 or £ 10 a side. Money ready at Mr Heath's, Windsor Castle, Hockley Hill. GEORGE GADD AND B.

We shall, consequently, send the stakes to Clancy on learning his address. DOINGS AT HYDE PARK, SHEFFIELD, AND THE NEIGHBOURHOOD. MONDAY, JUNE 1.— The weather to- day was all that could be desired, and, being Whit- Monday, as well as Sheffield Fair— which is a great holiday here— no less than from 5,000 to 6,000 spectators were on the ground during the day, to witness the Great All England Handicap Race and other events announced to take place. The sports commenced soon after six o'clock iu the morning, and were kept up without intermission until twelve o'clock. The ouly race of note was between THOS. ELLIS and GEO. ALLEN ( both of Parkgate, near Rother- harn), the distance being one mile, aud the stake £ 10 a side, Alien receiving a start of 30 yards. Allen bolted away at the top of his speed, and before 250 yards had been paced over, increased his advantage to about 50 yards. The pace now began to tell upon him, and the favourite, Ellis ( one of his backers having taken a bet of 50 half sovs to 1 that he won by 20 yards at the comiug- iu end) put on the steam, gradually stole up to his man, and when about 700 yards of the distance had been goue over, Ellis shot ahead, aud won by 80 yards. The referee ( our reporter) here left the ground, and the men actually ran an extra lap over the distance ( 506 yards), Allen giving up at the bottom of the hill. Shortly after three o'clock, the ground was cleared for the great event of the day— the GREAT ALL ENGLAND HANDICAP RACE of twice round the ground and one hundred yards, for the following money prizes, amounting to £ 68, given by Mrs Heathcote, the proprietress, viz, £ 50 for the first man, £ 10 for the second, aud £ 5 for the third ; tha winners of their heats not getting any of the head prizes to receive £ 1 each. The men were divided into six lots, which were decided as follows:— Lot 1, at half- past three: Isaac Simmonite, 95 yards start, 1; James Moore, 110, 2; six ran. Simmonite wou easily, by 15 yards.— Lot 2, as four: John Ellis, 100 yards start, 1. Five ran in this heat, which was won easily by Ellis, the rest being beaten a long way from tho finish.— Lot 3, at half- past four: waiter Carr ( Doncaster), 105 yards start, 1; William Clarke, 95, 2; live ran. Wou easily by half a score yards.— Lot 4, at five: Robert Bunn ( Nor- wich), 42 yards start, 1; William Proctor, 75, 2 ; Benjamin Badger ( Wolverhampton), § 4,3; six started. Bunu was declared tlie winner by three yards, after a most exciting race. Proctor beat Badger for the second place by five yards. A great deal of money changed hands, Proctor being backed at odds against the field,— Lot 5, at half- past five: Thomas Hollaud, 100 yards start, 1; Charles Melshaw, 105 yards, 2; six ran. Holland won this heat by live yards, Melshaw being secoud, the rest nowhere.— Lot 6, at six: Thomas frw.^ j^ rn . no yards sfrart. 1; Joseph Bates ( So . verby), 8uT" 2 ; four rati. "" Tffollancl, the crack, won easily by 30 yards, the others not having a shadow of a chance. TUESDAY.— The weather to- day was again beautifully flue, and a great number of spectators was drawn together to witness the deciding heat and the pigeon shooting. The sports com- menced with a £ 1 Sweepstakes, at 5 birds each, 21 yards rise, lfoz of shot, double gnus, the use of one barrel allowed to stand 19 yards, with l? oz of shot. The rails boundary. Fourteen mem- bers contested. It was finally wou by the justly celebrated old crack- shot, William Bailey of Sheffield, who killed all his birds in excellent style, never throwing a single chance away. After the deciding heat, a Sweepstakes of 7s 6d each was shot for at three birds each, on the same conditions, when Bailey wou the leger to himself, killing all. Eight shot. About six o'clock the ground was cleared for THE DECIDING HEAT FOR THE GREAT HANDICAP ELEVEN HUNDRED AND TWELVE YARDS RACE.— For this event a great deal of speculation took place at the following quotations :— 3 to 1 on Fordham agst the field ( taken), 10 tol agst Carr ( taken), 7 to 1 agst Holland ( taken), 5 to 1 agst Ellis ( taken), 20 to 1 agst Bunu and Simmonite. On the pistol being fired, away the six competitors went from their respective marks, Fordham, the favourite, making the running from the commencement to the finish, was never caught, and won with ease by nearly half a score yards. Walter Carr ( Doncaster), 105 yards, 2; Thomas Holland, 100 yards, 3; John E| lis, 100 yards, 4. Simmonite and Bunn were beaten a long way. j WEDNESDAY.— Upwards " pi two thousand spectators from various parts wended their way up the Park Hills, to wit- ness tho handicap sprint ra( je of 120 yards, for the follow- ing prizes, the gift of Mrs Heaihcote, viz, £ 20 for the first man, £ 4 for the second, aud £ 1 for ( he third. The men were divided iuto fourteen lots of three each, the first taking place at half- past three o'clock, and the others every succeeding quarter of an hour, occupying until a quarter to seven o'clock. Lot 1: Joseph Skinner 8f yards start, 1: William Greaves 13, 2; won by a yard.— Lot 2: John Watkinsori 10 yards start, 1; Samuel Clay- ton 15, 2; won easy by a couple of yards.— Lot 3 : John Buck- ley ( Tongue- lane) 11 yards start, 11; Henry James 13, 2; wou by a good yard,— Lot 4: Edward Evans 16 yards start, 1; Henry Green 15, 2; Joseph Mellor, 15,5 3; won by two yards.

Bagshaw 15 yards start, 1; H. Wild 16,2; won by three yards.— Lot 10: Elijah Blood ( Worksop) 15 yards start, 1; John Clarke ( Salford) 9£, 2; Jabez Harrison ( Clayton) 11, 3 ; won by five yards.— Lot 11: William Tuck ( Holkham) 8£ yards start, 1; William Day ( Mansfield) 11, 2; William Fearn ( Wadsley Bridge) .135, 3; won by a yard.— Lot 12 : George Moseley, 16 yards start, 1; Frederick Littlewood ( Attercliffe) 64, 2; William Saxon, 8$, 3; won by two yards. Littlewood was the crack at 3 and 4 to 1.— Lot 13: George Hartshorn ( Hyson Green) 7 yards start, 1; Martin Naney 15, 2; wou by a yard and a half.— Lot 14: Thos. Collinge ( Jumbo) 4 yards start, 1; Joseph Parkin 15, 2; John Fowler 18, 3 ; wou by a yard, THURSDAY.— There was again a great number of spec- tators present to witness the winners of tha heats for the 120 yards Handicap Race run off. The men were agaiu drawn in threes.— Lot 1: Thos. Collinge 4 yards start, 1; Geo. Harts- horne 7, 2 ; Edward Evans, 16, 3. Won by a foot.— Lot 2 : Wm. Butterworth 11 yards start, 1; George Moseley 16, 2; Henry Bagshaw 15, 3. Won by a yard.— Lot 3 : Elijah Blood, 15 yards start, 1; John Watkinson 10, and Joseph Skianer 8f, ran a dead heat. Blood won a splendid race by half a yard.— Lot 4 : George Kent 4 yards start, 1; Jeremiah Steer 14£, 2 ; William Tuck 8i, 3. Kent just managed to laud himself the winner by a few inches only.— Lot 5: John Buckley 11 yards start, walked over. After a short rest, the five winners were drawn in two lots. They came in as follows?— Buckley 1, Blood 2, Collinge 3. Buckley won an excellent race by about a foot. Butterworth and Kent should next have come to the scratch, but the former's party got to the Wooden Box hero, Kent, and squared him not to run against their man Butterworth, so that he would have a batter chance against Buckley. This is not as it ought to be, and we hope that the getters up of handicaps will keep their eyes upon the parties in future.— The deciding heat: After an interval of an hour, Butterworth aud Buckley came to their marks to run off for the first aud second money £ 20 aud £ 4, Blood gettiug the third money, £ 1, without running, owing to Kent not starting against Butterworth the previous heat. They got well off together, and ran neck and neck the entire distance, Buckley winniug one of the best races that we ever saw at Hyde Park by scarcely a foot, amidst the cheers of the assembled multitude. The bettiug was in favour of Butterworth, at 3 and 4 to 1, with plenty of takers. MR C.

SATURDAY, MAY 30.— This afternoon was beautifully fine and upwards of 1,000 visitors were attracted to the grounds, the chief event being with GRINDROD, DARLEY, AND TAYLOR.— Alfred Grindrod of Oldham, George Darley of Salford, and Benjamin Taylor of Faiisworth are each well- known local pedestrians, and the con- ditions of this somewhat novsl race were that it should be for £ 25 each, the winner to take the £ 75, and that the men's share of the gate- money should be betted on the issue of the contest, and be also received by the successful competitor. The distance to be traversed was 120 yards, and Mr J. Holdeu was mutually agreed upon as referee. Half- past four o'clock was fixed for the start, but it was half- past six before the pedestrians disrobed, Grindrod appearing under the care of the celebrated Fish of Oldham; Darley having been prepared by Job Smith of Hulme ; and Taylor ( alias Rocker) was attended by Mr Joseph Etchells of Faiisworth. The betting opened at 5 to 4 against Grindrod, 6 to 4 against Darley, and 7 to 4 against Taylor ; but when the men entered the course, 6 to 4 each was laid against Grindrod an* Darley, aud 2 to 1 against Taylor. On toeing the mark, the odds were 5 to 4 against Griudrod, 6 to 4 against Darley, and 2 to 1 against Taylor, though iu some instances Darley was backed at evens. Darley won the toss, aud selected the centre position, Grindrod being on his right hand aud Taylor on his left. On stripping, the appearance of each was very superior, though wo could not help thinking Darley's a little too fine. On the pistol being fired, Darley ( who evidently meant winning if possible) jumped off with about half a yard the advantage, Griudrod holding second position, aud Taylor last. When 70 yards had been gone over, Grindrod made an excellent though unsuccessful effort to get to the front, and Darley, who had never been headed, won by three- quarters of a yard, Griudrod beating Taylor for second place by a yard. JOHNSON AND GOSLING.— J. Johnson and J. Gosling ( beth of Stockport) next rau 140 yards, for £ 5 a side. The betting was 7 to 4 011 Johnson, and our Manchester reporter was selected referee. As they failed to start in 15 minutes, they had to go by a pistol shot. Gosling took the lead, was uot headed, and won by three yards. The course during the afternoon was well kept. MONDAY.— There was a small attendance of company to- day, and the following was the only event decided :— BROMLEY AND WITHINGTON.— This was a race of 120 yards, for £ 10 a side, between J. Bromley of Longton, Staffordshire, andE. Withington. Mr J. Holdeu, jun, was the referee, aud the betting at start 6 to 4 oa Bromley. On going away the favo- rite obtained a yard the best of the start, held the supremacy throughout, and Mr Holden declared Bromley the winner by a yard aud a half. The pace, however, was remarkably slow. The stakes shall be sent to the winner on his sending us liis address. TUESDAY.— TRAINER AND SIDDALL.— These men met here on Tuesday, to run a mile for £ 25 a side, Trainer to receive 10 yards start. Both men appeared in excellent condition, and the betting commenced at evens, but before the start was effected, 2 to 1 was freely offered on Trainer. Mr G. Piers ( in the absence of J, Holden) officiated as referee. After a short delay at scratch, an even start was effected, aud both men bounded off at a good pace, Siudall slightly lessening the gap iu the first round; but Trainer put ou the steam, and ran in a winner by eight or nine yards. WILLCOCK AND SHAW.— Wm. Willcock of Manchester and WM. Sliaw of Leeds are matched to ruu 200 yards, for £ 15 a side, at the Saiford Borough Gardens, on Saturday, the 27th inst. Mr Holden has received £ 1 each, to be made iuto £ 5 011 the 9th June ; into £ 10 a side ou June 16th ; and tha remaining £ 5 each to be staked on the day of the race. BULLEN AND POMERET.— D.

Garwood three, five hours : John Harvey, . five hours; J ohn Procter three, four aad a half hours; Jas. Eaton, two and a half hours; Jas. Custer, three, two and a half hours ; and Edwin Dale, one and a half hour. Betting on Dale against the whole of them.

THE TWO ELEVENS. The great match between the All England Eleven and the United All England Eleven was commenced at Lord's, on Mon" day last, and brought to a satisfactory conclusion on Wednesday at half- past one o'clock. As we anticipated, the largest company was drawn together that ever assembled on this ground; very nearly 10,000 formed a ring ou Monday, while upwards of 7,000 made their appearance on Tuesday. The weather was all that a cricketer could desire, and the spectators began to arrive on the ground as early as half- past nine o'clock. The match, as most of our readers may be aware, was played for the benefit of the Cricketer's Fund, and under circumstances that do honour to George Parr, and ought never to be forgotten by any cricketer who may have the honour of belonging to such an excellent society. We need go no further back than the present challenge, which emanated on the part of Deau's friends for the Two Elevens to play for his benefit; the answer to this application was, that the All England Eleven would gladly meet the ( Jmted in the field for Dean, if they ( the United) would first play a match for the benefit of the Cricketers' Fuud. We need scarcely add that, after the ground had been kindly placed at their disposal by Mr J. H. Dark, these two great events were immediately settled. The Cricketers'Fund was some years ago established, but owing to some mismanagement ( pretty gene- rally known) it fell to the ground; it, however, has been revived, and so far carried out, by tho exertions of Mr F. Lilly- white, who selected a most efficient list of officers, including E. Wilder, Esq, president ( annual subscriber of £ 25), G. F. Cook, Esq, vice- president ( annual subscriber of £ 25), Hon F. Ponsonby and John Walker, Esq, trustees ( Messrs Walker, brothers, subscribed £ 100). The Hons F. Ponsonby and R. Grimstou, and W, Nicholson, Esq, are also among the advisers for the proper management of the society, assisted by a com- mittee of Players from each county, including Thomas Box ( chairman), G. Parr, J. Csesar, John Lillywhite, G. Anderson, E. Willsher, A. Diver; the present secretary is F. Lillywhite. On Monday the following is a portion of the noblemen and gen- tlemen that were present:— Earl of Sandwich, Earl of Winter- ton, Earl of Coventry, Earl of Stamford and Warrington, Earl of Leicester, Marquis of Huntley, Marquis of Queensbury, Marquis of Anglesey, and Ladies Paget, Lord Henry Gordon^ Lord Morton, Lord Royston, Lord Waterpark, Viscount Turnour, Hon F. Cavendish, Hon F. Ponsonby, Hon R. Grimsfcon, Hon F. Craven, Hon W. Talbot, Hon R. C. Neville, and Sir W. Somerville. On the Tuesday we noticed the following:— The Earl of Uxbridge, Earl of Craven, Earl of Sefton, Viscount Mil- ton, Lord Garlies, Lord F. Fitzroy, Lord Gardner, Lord John Hay, Lord Mahlen, LordClonbrock, Lord A. Vane Tempest, Hou C. Fitzwilliam, Hon J. Fiennes, Hon F. Grimston, Hon E. C. Leigh, Hou W. P. Moreton, Hon H. D. Ward, Sir F. Bathurst ( president of M. C. C.), Sir John Bayley, Colonel Moncrieff, Colonel Gambier ( Royal Artillery), Captain D. Baillie ( Royal Horse Guards), Captain Bateson ( lst Life Guards), Captain Peyton ( lst Life Guards), Captain Hogge ( 2d Life Guards). Shortly after twelve o'clock the bell rang for play, aud in less than five minutes a ring was formed, four or five thick deep. The ground was very hard from the previous flue weather, and the wickets, we are pleased to say, played pretty well; they were selected by Barker and SewelL With regard to tho fielding part of the ground the players made some complaint, which may account for the very indifferent fielding, which it will be our duty to chronicle. A two- shilling piece having been whirledinto the air by Parr, and the uppermost side rightly guessed by Wisden, Dean was instructed to provide the printer with the order of going in, which was soon distributed to the public. Betting even, United for choice. Dean and Hunt made their appearance, to the bowling of Willsher and Bickley, who bowled a maiden each. Diver had the difficult task to long- stop ; Tinley officiated at point, Stephenson at wicket, Parr mid- on and cover point, Cajsar long slip, Clarke aud Anderson long leg and mid- wioket, Crossland short- leg. Willsher's second over disposed of Hunt, who for match playing was somewhat out of practice. The first wicket fell for 3 runs; Grundy followed, and made a drive and a cut from Willsher for four, when he " hit on." Dean afterwards succumbed to Jackson, having defended his wicket in a masterly manner. Everybody seemed pleased that the renowned Jemmy should have " covered himself with glory," mindful, no doubt, that the return match will take place for his benefit; his figures were a four ( leg- slip from Willsher), seven threes ( drives, cuts, and leg hits); three wickets down for 80 runs. Wisden made a splendid drive from Willsher for three; he and Caffyn caused Jackson to go ou at Bickley's end. Wiilsher missed Wisdeu off him, but Jackson did the effective SOOH afterwards. Calfyn showed some good cricket, making drives from Willshcr for a fivo and a four, as well as a leg hit; two threes, five twos, & c. were also among his figures; four wickets fell for 98, and five for 99 runs. Wright was caught at short- leg, previous to which John Lillywhite was un- luckily run out; it was probably as much his own fault as Wright's, as the former made too great a start, aud in making the attempt to turn back he slipped, but had he not done so, his wicket was gone; he made a leg hit and a drive from Jack- son for fours. Bell played an excellent innings, showing a marked improvement in the batting department. At twenty- five minutes past three o'clock the innings terminated for 143 runs. Betting 5 and 6 to 4 on the United. Jackson bowled . very straight, which, with his terrific pace, assisted by a hard ground, " told tales." The batting, however, of the United was first class. Bickley was suffering from a very bad thumb, injured while bowling to Lord Stamford in practice; aud he must have suffered much pain. At a quarter to five o'clock the All England Eleven sent in Driver and Andrew Cross- land. Wisden and Martingell started, notwithstanding the former was suffering from a sprained ancle. The fourth ball got Diver caught at point, one wicket for 0. Stephenson followed, and Wisden having delivered nine overs, was compelled, in con- sequence of his ancle, and the hard ground, to desist from bowl- ing. This proved a terrible blow for the United. Grundy was substituted, but bowled very indifferently. Dean was then sub- stituted for him, aud Caffyn for Martiugeil; still Stephenson and Crossland were run- getters, until one peculiar and unlucky ball got round Crossland's legs, in some manner or another, and scattered the timber. He played a very steady inniugs, although, probably, owing to his continually leaving his ground to play a good- un, it was not so much admired. He nevertheless ob- tained 24 runs, which, as a " colt" at Lord's, may be considered a good beginning. His figures were a four ( cut from Caffyn), three threes, three twos, & c ; two wickets for 75 runs. George Parr followed, when Stephenson, after playing a magnificent innings of 51, drove the ball back to the bowler; his figures wore a six ( square leg- hit from Dean), five threes, six twos, & c; three wickets for 85 runs. Ctesar was got rid of, after stopping until 103 had been scored as the total, when Tinley took his place, and became the companion of Parr. The latter had scored 20, and Willsher 10, when the stumps were drawn. Tho fielding of the United was anything but good, aud Lockyer did not appear, as usual, " at home;" seven wickets down for 136 runs. TUESDAY.— The » morninglwas again lovely,% and the match had lost none of its interest. Willsher and Parr resumed their places, and ran the score up to 154 runs; the bowlers were changed, but ineffectively; Bell was kept on, although continually giving Parr leg balls to hit. For what purpose they could allow John Lillywhite to be quiet at such a period, was a question asked, and justly so, by many. The ground would just have suited his bowling. Willsher, Bickley, and Jackson, however, were allowed to make a stand with Parr, until 206 runs had been made. Willsher's figures were a five ( drive from Caffyn), two fours ( drive and a cut from Caffyn), a three, a two, & c. Bickley made drives for a three and a two, and although suffering from so bad a thumb, made an excellent stand. Jackson quickly added 12 by a square leg- hit and a drive for fours, two twos, & c. The in- nings closed at half- past oneo'clock, being 63 ahead. Betting 5 and 6 to 4 on All England. The United commenced their second in- nings by again sending in Dean and Hunt. Dean, the first wicket, fell for 2 runs; the second, Hunt's, for 6 ; and the third, Caffyn's, for 19. Here the betting was freely 2 to 1 on All Eng- land. Cafl'yn was evidently a bit " cowed," having just before received a severe blow. Grundy and Bell played splendid in- nings, against the very excellent bowling of Willsher and Jack- son, Tinley was then put on with his slows, which Grundy spooned into the hands of mid- on ; his figures were a three, five twos, and singles ; four wickets clown for 61 runs. Bell, after playing one of the finestinnings that ever ( perhaps) fell to his lot, was bowled by attempting to hit one of Willsher's best; had he continued playing as previously he would, in all probability, have had double the score attached to his name; his figures were a five ( a drive from Jackson), two fours ( one an excellent drive from Tinley), six twos, & c. John Liliywhite was caught at the wicket, the ball breaking from the off; six wickets down for 92 runs. Lockyer and Mortlock being got rid off, caused a total of 108 to be scored. Mortlock made a splendid oil- drive for six from Bickley. Wright played a masterly innings of 21— evi- dently showing that he has recovered his play, which last season was so inferior; he lost many runs, owing to a sprain of the thigh, and we were somewhat at a loss to know why he did not apply for a substitute to run for him ; his figures were a five ( leg- hit from Willsher), a four ( leg- hit from Jackson); a leg- hit for three, two drives for twos, & c ; his, the ninth wicket, fell for 127 runiv- " in'ik'ii'j last, Martingell and Wisden, increases! the score to 140. Wisden had John Lillywhite to run for him, but not- withstanding his weak ancle, he made ona of the finest hits in the match— driving Jackson on the " on" side for six. Martin- gellhadthe luck tp get an overthrow for live, and, singularly enough, Parr, who had thrown the ball, with terrific pace, hit the stump with sufficient force to dislodge the bail, but no one of the field saw it, and the ball having made its way to the pavilion, the runs were duly scored to the hitter, and the game resumed— Martingell being at the time some yards off the ground. 78 were now left for the All England to get to win; Crosslaud and Clarke were the first at the wickets, the latter had scored 7 when the stumps were drawn. A very large con- course of spectators attended. WEDNESDAY,— The game was interrupted by some showers. Crossiand was caught in the slip, and Clarke at cover point— off nearly a wide ball. Anderson was run out, the ball being thrown in by Grundy, which he did not appear to see. Tinley played an excellent innings of 23, made by a five ( drive from Lillywhite, who started this morning), a four ( drive from Lilly), two threes, two twos, & c. The first wicket fell for 12, the second for 19, the third for 53, and the fourth for 55. Stephenson and Parr then got together, and run the score up to 73, when Lilly got one past Stephenson. Parr had very narrow escapes of being caught by the bowler twice— one being a trifle short, and the other a little too high to reach. He played another splendid innings of 19 ( again bringing out his bat), made by a square leg- hit from Lillywhite for six, two threes, two twos, & c. Csesar came to Parr to get the required number, which the latter accomplished — Lockyer taking ihe ball the last over. The All England Eleven therefore proved victorious by five wickets, amidst the applause of the spectators. We need scarcely add that the breakdown of Wisden prevented the match from being a very liard- fought one; and it seemed the general opinion that the United might have just pulled through. Bickley's thumb, how- ever, was somewhat of an off- set against this. Martirigell did not seem at home with the ball; nor did Grundy. Caffyn per- formed well; but, curious enough, although so much talent was engaged, there was nothing " good" done in the whole match. It generally happens that some extraordinary catch, something at the wicket, or an event of some importance, occurs during a great match— but we have nothing of the kind to record in this. We may add that this was Crossland's first appearance at Lord's, and Diver had not played there since 1850. It may be remarked as worthy of notice, aud curious, that no Hamp- shire man should be engaged in this or other great events of the day, as that county used, about eighty years ago, to coiatend against England with success. The two eon- tending parties of last Monday were composed of six from Surrey, six from Nottinghamshire, three from Yorkshire, three from Sussex, two from Cambridgeshire, only one from Kent, and one from Derbyshire. Of the United Eleven, Wisden, Dean, Grundy, Martingell, and Caffyn used to play regularly for the All England Eleven, but left in consequence of some disagree- ment, now all happily arranged. Hunt, Wright, Lockyer, and Lillywhite have also played for that Eleven formerly, but not regularly. Caisar, Stephenson, aud Willsher have played a few times with the United; the latter commenced his England matches with them. It cannot be for a moment doubted that had the veteran Clarke brought the team into this field, the interest would have been far greater, but, as the two Elevens are now on the most friendly terms, we trust that many more such matches will be contended, aud played with the same good feeling as on this occasion. We regret much that the fund did not receive the benefit that the extra sixpence proposed by us would have socertainlybroughttoit. Following the score, we give the details of cash, ice. The" Elevens were each day invited to Mr Dark's private house, where they partook of the old English fare of roast beef and plum pudding, which, we imagine, many of the visitors ( including some officials) would have been glad to get a sight of. A vast amount of money changed hands, and al- ready a great deal has been laid upon the result of the return match for Dean's benefit on the 27th of July. The umpires, Barker and Sewell, gave every satisfaction, aud if their valuable aid were sought. in great provincial matches, many disputes and arguments would be more satisfactorily settled.

ROYAL HOUSEHOLD BRIGADE ( WITH LILLY- WHITE) v PERIPATETICS. This match was played on Thursday, June 4, at Lord's, when the baud of the Scots Fusilier Guards was in attendance, and contributed much towards the enlivening of the scene. It was the first appearance in public of the Peripatetics, a club which has been recently established under the immediate patronage of the Bar and the Bench. " Persuasion tips their tongues whene'er they talks, And they have chambers in the King's Bench' jyalks.'" It is composed of risen and rising barristers; and, if we might judge from the specimen they gave on Thursday of their bowling and batting, we should say they were " in full practice." Messrs Pontifex, Francis, and Baillie played steadily and well; but Mr Fitzgerald's drives were singularly sparkling, and his hit from Lillywhite out of the ground into an adjoining garden was one of the most tremendous on record. We missed with regret several familiar faces from amongst the guardsmen. Where was the " Miles" par excellence?— where the Victoria Cross- bearer? They were, however, well represented; indeed, the Royal House- hold Brigade have the honourable reputation of being able to produce at a moment's notice a most excellent substitute for auybody, to do anything required of any one of themselves. Lord Bingham made his score by careful cricket. So did Lilly- white, who was got rid of at last in the slips; and Captain Bathurst in the second innings was himself again. The pre- ponderance of runs was in favour of the Peripatetics. Were it not so, what would there be in a name? We think, however, that the two sides are evenly balanced, and we look forward with much pleasure to seeing them contend again on the same ground, " With the same fine day," And the same fine play?'— Old Song.

CRICKET AT HARROW. HARROW v HOUSEHOLD BRIGADE. This match was played . at Harrow on Saturday, the 30fch of May. Owing to various camp and garrison duties, the two bow- lers of the latter, who had intended to play, were unavoidably deterred at the last moment. On the side of the School the batting of Messrs Barclay and Pritchard was all that could be desired, while on the other side Capt Mills, Messrs Marshall and Stephenson gave proof of their understanding the science of' wielding the willow. The fielding on the side of the School was remarkably good, and it is to be hoped that it was not entirely thrown away upon the eyes of their opponents, who, but for their failure in this department, would probably have made a very good fight of it. The subjoined score will prove the defeat of the Household Brigade by nine wickets.; HOUSEHOLD BRIGADE. lst inn 2dinn F.

The batting ou both sides was steady, the number of runs being kept under by the good quality of the bowling.

This match was played on Saturday, 30th of May; one innings ouly could be played out, but this was quite sufficient to show the superior prowess of Trinity Hall. On tho side of John's Mr J. M. Fuller, as usual, batted like a true cricketer. Mr Wilkin- son showed some very good play in his innings, while Mr Piggott, a young member of the club, played in uncommonly good style for 44. On the side of Trinity Hall Messrs Hawes, w ilkins, and Gladstone made good scores, and Mr Biron brought out his bat for a well got 60. The bowling and fielding of Trinity Hall was very good, while that of John's was rather under the mark. Score: TRINITY HALL. F. J. Quick, b Pennington 3 R. A. Bayford, b Pennington .... 16 C. W.

ME EDITOB : You published in last week's Bell's Life a letter complaining of the abolition of the Public Schools Matches ac Lord's between Winchester, Eton, and Harrow, owing to the interference and combination of the authorities of Eton and Winchester, and of the former in particular Allow me to remark that at Eton, in addition to stopping these interesting annual meetings, cricket fagging has been put an end to; the boat race between Eton and Westminster prevented; fireworKS on the 5th of November, and also " Montem," abolished. It is reallv quite time old Etonians should stir themselves on the subject, or Eton will soon fall to the level of a private school. As regards the public schools matches, it has been said tnat toe 2 BELL'S LIFE IN LONDON, JUNE 14, 1857. parents of several of those engaged • bject to their sons at Lord's, owing to their being Ted into d Station. To this the answer is, " Let those come to Lord's whose friends do not mind their doing so; the rest can stay away." But there is no ^ ssible reason' why all should suffer for the few, especially as these matches taka place in the holidays, wlien, properly, the masters have no hold on the boys. Ttie Harrovians, en the Contrary, can easily come to Lord's to meet their adversaries their head master not having any wis t to P^^ nt their so doiuK ( nor is any reasonable amusement forbidden at inis school), though he would not like to see Eton or Winchester come > play at Harrow, and very properly too, as it might cans-; tne presence of questionable company, Harrow bem? so near London. In conclusion, I can only add that the Harrovians are both rtldy, able, and willing to meet their friendly opponents at Lord's as usual this summer.— Yours, & c, AN ADMIRER OF BRITISH SPORTS AND PASTIMES. P. S. It is more annoying that these matches should have been stopped just now, as annual matches have just been commenced between Rugby and Marlborough and Marlborough and Chel- tenham. COUNTY OF SURREY v OXFORDSHIRE.

This old established society met on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday last, at that well known hostelry, Mr Baum's, White Lion Grounds, Victoria Park Station, Hackney Wick, to celebrate their usual annual manly sport of wrestling, and the prizes this year being more valuable than on several previous years, induced many of the best men, of each county, to venture up to the metropolis; amongst others, Bartley, the champion of Cornwall, heavy weight, who brought with him a light weight champion of the name of Delbridge ; Bond and Tucker < both of Devon), also ventured up to oppose the London men. Too much praise cannot be given to the managers of the North London and Blackwall Railway Companies, who ran their trains for this occasion, every quarter of an hour, without any mishap or accident to the thousands of holiday folks who availed themselves of that mode of transit. At twelve o'clock precisely the sport commenced on each day, aud lasted till dusk, enlivened at intervals by the splendid brass band of the Eastern Counties Railway, and likewise the drum- and- fife band of the United Amateurs. Dancing on the lawn was kept up to a late hour, and the amusements terminated each night with a grand display of fireworks ( by Baker), to the delight of the thousands who witnessed them. The prizes were awarded to the following successful winners :— HEAVY WEIGHTS— First prize of £ 3, to T, Bartley, of Corn- wall.— Second prize of £ l 10s, to J. Bescomb, of same place. The latter, owing to an accident, was unable to play in the light weights. LIGHT WEIGHTS.— First Prize, £- 3, to Joel Teque ( alias The Little Wonder.— Second prize, £ 1 10s, to J. Blight. AMATEURS' PRIZES.— First, £ 1, to Clark, of Devon.— Second prize, 10s, to Bennett, of Cornwall. BESCOMB AND BICKELL.— We have received £ 2 a side from J. Bescomb, of Cornwall, and G. Bickell, of Devon, and a fur- ther deposit of £ 3 a side is to be made good at Mr Simpson's, the Crown Tavern, Winchester- street, Caledonian- road, on Tues- day next, when articles are to be drawn up, for a match for £ 10 a side, to be left open for from £ 25 to £ 50 a side. The entry for the sweepstakes at J. Winterbottom's, Hare and Hounds, Higginshaw, Oldham, is postponed till the day of wrestling, at twelve o'clock. To weigh at one o'clock and com' menceattwoj First prize £ 5, second £ 1. Any man not being ready when the bell is rung to be disqualified. LORD AND MATLEY.— On account of the match, for £ 50 a side, two back falls out of three, Lancashire fashion, Mr Holden has now received £ 20 each. The event is to ' - decided at the Snipe Inn, near Ashton, on the 29th inst, ant" itlier to exceed list weight. ROYAL YACHT SQUADRON INTELLIGENCE. MAY 30.— Schooner Magic, S. Block, Esq, arrived from the Thames, Boulogne, and Portsmouth, aud sailed on the lst for the eastward.— June 1: Schooner Kittiwake, Marquis of Ailsa, from the westward, and sailed for Southampton; schooner Gipsy Queen, Sir H. B. Hoghton, Bart, for Torquay.— June 3: Schooner Titauia, R. Stephenson, Esq, M. P., from Cherbourg aud Plymouth, accompanied by Lord Mulgrave and C. R. Colvile, Esq, M. P., and, after a day's cruize in these waters, proceeded to Southampton ; schooner Lalla Rookh, Viscount Bangor, from Poole, and sailed on the 4th for the eastward. The following yachts are fitting out:— The new schooner ( screw) Firefly, Sir Henry Oglauder, Bart, will go out of harbour on Monday next; the Vice- Commodore's screw yacht Capricorn, lengthened and converted by Messrs White, will be docked this week, and then proceed out of harbour to try the rate of speed ; she will after- wards return to the harbour to fit out for the season; schooner Leda, Sir R. B. W. Bulkeley, Bart, M. P. will be ready on the 12th; the cutter Aurora, Le Marchant Thomas, Esq, and the Amazon, Sir B. Walsh, Bart, are in a forward state. DEPARTURE OF THE COURT.— The court left Osborne on Thursday afternoon at 3: 15, and, as the Fairy steamed out of harbour, the royal standard received a salute of 21 guns from the R. Y. S. battery. ROYAL THAMES YACHT CLUB. On Tuesday, June 2, the first great event in the yachting sea- son took place— the R. T. Y. C. cutter match; and though there was some disappointment at the Cymba, Amazon, and others not entering, still the entry was very respectable, comprising the fol- lowing vessels:— FIRST CLASS, exceeding 35 tons, for a Silver Tankard and Salver, value £ 100. NAMES. TONS. OWNEB. EXTBAVAGANZA 49.... Sir P. Shelley CYCLONE 43— Mr M. J. Patterson, j un MOSQUITO 59 Mr T.

Course from Erith to the Nore and back; half minute time al- lowed. Though most of these vessels are well known, we give a short sketch of each. Extravaganza was built by Wanhill, last year, and lias been moderately successful. Cyclone was built last year by Patterson of Bristol, and has been very much improved lately by alteration of rig and ballast, and is now tolerably stiff. Mosquito is now ten years old, but has never been beaten when in proper hands. She has a new mast and new sails, the mast four feet longer, the gaff somewhat shorter. Silver Star is a long lean boat, built this year, at Colchester, by her owner, and is not adapted for winning. Glance was built in 1855, by Hatcher of Southampton, and was very successful last year, having sailed in eleven matches and won ten of them. She has since changed owners, but not captains, and her performance on Tuesday is a mystery to those on board, and to every one else. It was doubtful, and was only ascertained on Monday, that she was under 35 tons. Phantom was built many years ago, I t has been repeatedly altered, last by White of Cowes. She has .^ iled in very many matches, and won many prizes. Thought was built in 1854 by Hatcher of Southampton, aud in the last two years has beaten the Phantom three times, and been beaten four times. She has this year come into the possession of Mr Marshall. The Emmet is a new boat by Wanhill, long, sharp, and apparently crank. The yachts were stationed about a mile above Erith in two lines, the first class in the lower line. It was a pleasant sun- shiny day, the wind light aud variable; just when the vessels started it was about S. S. E. The first gun was fired at llh 30min 20sec, and the second gun at llh 35min 30sec, when all the vessels canted, and began to hoist sail. As soon as the sails were fairly set, Extravaganza took the lead, followed by Cyclone, Glanee third; in Erith Rands Glance put Mosquito about, the wind being very baffling, and the Emmet- now came up with a breeze. Off Purfleet Mosquito crossed ahead of Glance on the wrong tack, making a very close shave, aud gaining fast on the other vessels; and when Mosquito next put aoout on the Essex shore she came in contact with the Cyclone, and we are not sure that the Extravaganza was not also in contact; at all events the three vessels were very close. Glance, thinking to pass them all whilst they were together, made au unlucky tack, and was headed by the wind, which now flew round to S. W., and brought the Thought flying up to the other vessels. The breeze carried the fleet merrily down Long Reach, and they entered St Clements in the following order:— Extravaganza, Emmet, Thought, Mosquito, Cyclone, Glance, Phantom, Silver Star. The breeze now settled to a pleasant south wind, and Phantom catching it first, passed Glance and Cyclone. Gravesend was reached at 12: 50, Mosquito having by this time passed Thought, a long way ahead of Phan- tom, Cyclone, aud Glance; Silver Star far astern. There WE A good steady soldier's wind in Sea Reach, and the Mosquito passed first Emmet and then Extravaganza, but the Glance did very little to better her position. On the way down Cyclone passed to windward, and Glance to leeward of Phautom, and they rounded the Nore rather before low water as follows :— H. M. S. H. M. S. H. M. S. MOSQUITO 2 35 30 THOUGHT 2 42 50 PHANTOM 2 5010 EXTBAVAGANZA 2 36 40 CYCLONE 2 47 40 SILVER STAB ,. 2 5810 EMMET 2 37 30 GLANCE 2 49 10 This left a good match between Mosquito and Extravaganza, and between Emmet and Thought, the old enemy Time being taken into account, and betting and excitement were abundant. The vessels ran back nearly as they had run down, with big top- sails still set. Soon after rounding the bobstay bolt at the end of the Emmet's bowsprit gave way, and though the damage was to a cerf ain exteut repaired, her chance of winning was mate- rially diminished by this misfortune. Glance came up to Cyclone, but could not pass her, leaving Phantom a long way astern. In turning through the Lower Hope, Thought came up to Emmet and ultimately passed her. Glance very nearly weathered Cy- clone, but whilst these two vessels were manoeuvring Phantom came up, and in Gravesend Reach passed Glance, which seemed out of spirits, and made no attempt at stopping, and then passed Cyclone. At the upper end of Long Reach Glance out manoeuvred Cyclone and passed her, and they finally arrived at Erith :— H. M. S. H. M. S. H. M. S.

The Mosquito was unlucky at the beginning of the match, and seems to retain her superiority over everything old or new, in the hands of the present captain, Walker, who comes from the neighbourhood of the Thames. The Thought was sailed by Pittock of Roches- ter ; she and the Phantom have now each beaten the other four times. The Glance was sailed by her old captain, R. Penny, and no alteration has been made except that a little ballast has been taken out, which could have done no harm. Her defeat was a great surprise to many, numerous bets having been taken at very low odds that she would carry off the first prize, and though Time was considered a dangerous enemy, no one imagined that she would not come in before Thought or Phantom. The Prince of Wales steamer, with the band of the Life Guards, was engaged by the club, and the Sea Swallow was chartered by independent speculators to attend the match, and both vessels were well filled. The railways have so completely driven away the river steamers, that the club found great difficulty in pro- curing a vessel large enough for them, and procured the Prince of Wales at last as a matter of favour. The Commodore, Lord A. Paget, and the Yiee- Cominodore, R. Green, Esq, were both on board. The steamer started from London Bridge with exem- plary punctuality, and, though the time occupied by the match was rather long, she returned to London Bridge at a few minutes past eight. The new plan of going from and returning to London Bridge without stoppages, appeared to give great satisfaction; those impatient grumblers who talk of delay could not L " much to complain of on this occasion, aud the weather was so very warm and pleasant that few matches can have been more satisfactory to the spectators. The Aquiline, Clymene, Dart, Drift, Halcyon, Phoenix, Will- o'- the- Wisp, and many other yachts were under way, and we did not hear any complaints of their annoying the sailing vessels. The last monthly meeting, at the Bedford, of the above club, prior to removing to St James's- street, took place on Wednesday evening, 3d inst. The treasurer occupied the chair, the house dinner previously having, as usual, been attended by some forty members and friends. The secretary having read the minutes of tbe 6th May, they were unanimously confirmed. Mr R. S. Wilkinson's motion relative to the contemplated small increase of two guineas in the entrance fee, commencing in October next, was carried nem con. On the motion of Captain Montague Burgoyne, Mr Grant ( agent to the Royal Victoria and other royal yacht clubs) was unanimously appointed agent to the R. T. Y. C. at Malta, viee Capt Graves, R. N., deceased. Twenty- two gentlemen were then balloted for, and declared duly elected members, amongst whom are the following yacht owners :— Alfred Tooth, Esq, Pet, schooner, 160 tons ; Edward T. Gourley, Esq, Gadfly, cutter. 40 tons ; J. B. Mansfield, Esq, Fire Cloud, cutter, 35 tons ; S. Padley, Esq, Blue Belle, eutter, 30 tons ; Charles Rahn, Esq, Delia, cutter, 21 tens ; and Richard T. M'Mullen, Esq, Leo, cutter. About a dozen candidates were then announced for tbe lst of July ballat, and the meeting was declared adjourned to that day, to be held at St James's- street. PRINCE OF WALES YACHT CLUB. The monthly meeting of this club will be held at the Free- masons' Tavern, on Friday next, the 12th inst, at eight o'clock p. m.

The Commodore hoisted his flag on board the noble outter, Pearl, of 163 tons, belonging to Ralph Dawson, Esq, who placed her at the club's disposal for the day, and invited a number of friends to meet theCommodore and other officers. The Rear- Commodore hoisted his flag on board the Surprise cutter, belonging to T. W. Tetley, Esq. The fleet was joined by the Plover cutter, R. M. Grinnell, Esq, and several other yachts. Tho monthly meeting of the club was held at the Marine station, Rock Ferry, on Mon- day last, Commodore Littledale in the chair. Mr Prisleaux, merchant, was elected a member, and several other names pro- posed for ballot at the next meeting. It was finally resolved to hald, in addition to the club sailing matches, a general regatta on Friday, the 19th of June, and a subscription entered iuto to carry out the undertaking on a large scale. Several very liberal sums were subscribed at the meeting. We have si>: ce heard that her Majesty has been graciously pleased to present a cup, of £ 100 value, to the club, to be sailed for on the 19th of June, open to all royal yacht clubs. On the following day the club matches will take place: £ 50 prize for yachts above 35 tons, and £ 30 prize under 35 tons. The entries for these two club prizes will close on the 10th inst, at six p. m. ROYAL CORK YACHT CLUB. Thursday, May 28, being the day for the weekly sailing of the R. C. Y.

It will be a sweepstakes of £ 5 entrance, with £ 25 added by the committee, the second boat to save her stake, and it will be open to officers of the army aud navy, members of royal yacht and rowing clubs. ROYAL WELSH YACHT CLUB. The monthly meeting of this club was held on Wednesday last, the 3d inst, at the club house, Carnarvon. The following eight members were present, the Rear- Commodore presiding :— C. J. Sampson, Esq, Capt Iremonger, G. W. Hill, Esq, Benj ' n Smith, Esq, T. Churchill, Esq, the Rev S. Slater, and J. Jack- son, Esq. On the motion of Mr Slater, seconded by Mr Samp- son, Mr David Hugh Griffith, proposed at the last meeting, was balloted for and duly elected.— On the motion of Mr Sampson, seconded by Mr B. Smith, Mr T. P. W. Ellis was proposed for election at the next meeting.— On the motion of Capt Iremonger, seconded by Mr Churchill, it was resolved that Thursday, the 13th of August, should be the day fixed for the regatta of the present year, and that the secretary write to the Secretary of the Holyhead Regatta, hoping that the previous Monday or Tuesday would suit for their regatta.— A letter was read by the Secretary, from Mr Tetley, requesting the acceptance of a print of his beautiful yacht, the Surprise, winner of the 50 Guinea Cup at Carnarvon, last year.— The Rear- Commodore also stated that Commodore Littledale of the R. M. Y. Club, who is also a member of this club, had kindly promised prints of the burn- ing of the Ocean Monarch, and Mr Birc^ all of the Rosalind, a print of the beautiful Vision, so often the winner at Carnarvon, in past years. The handsome club house could not be better adorned than by representatives of the yachts of members and kindred subjects, and the example of these gentlemen is cer- tainly worth following. The meeting was then adjourned to Friday, the 19th instant.— The Queen Victoria ( cutter), T. Mad- dock, Esq; Adroit, B. Smith, Esq ; and Nautilus, Rev J. Slater, are the only craft yet in commission. Last week a new 19 tonner was launched at Carnarvon, and a nine touuer at Portmadoc, to fly the flag of the club.

Stibbard, Esq, Albert- square, Clapham- road, were elected members of the association. A letter from the secretary of the Bu aes Regatta, soliciting a contribution from the club having been read, it was resolved that five guineas should be voted thereto. It beiug the wish of the majority of the members pre- sent that the monthly dinners should be held during the sum- mer at an hotel out of town, it was ordered that to make the necessary arrangements a meeting of the committee should be specially convened. > BIRKENHEAD MODEL YACHT CLUB. The first sailing match of the season for a cup, value £ 20, came off on Saturday week, and promised to excite great interest from the fact that out of eight yachts entered, five of them were new and untried. The following came to the starting post, No. 1 being the westward station :— STATION. NAME. TONS. OWNER. BUILDER. 1 WASP ... 2 J. S. Bishop Owner 2 ELFIN 3i A. Whitworth Kelly 3 GLIDE 74 J. Wilkinson Owner 4 MAYFLOWER 7 Rear- Commodore Owner 5 SNAKE 7i J. Wilkinson Owner 6 CHABM 7i J. Poole Kelly 7 ELECTBIO 7 J. A. Clarke Bishop WHITE SQUALL .. 4J W. L. Sutlierbery Owner We gave an account of these vessels in our last impression, and it is therefore needless to recapitulate it; but we may mention that the Glide is the present holder of the Challenge Cup, and has won two other cups; and the Electric is the winner of three cups; the White Squall won one cup given by the Corporation of Liverpool. The morning opened auspiciously; a glorious sunshine added to the enjoyment. On the Woodside Pier banners floated to the breeze, and directly off the pier, dressed withflags, lay the flag- ship, the celebrated Cymba, T. Brassey, j un, Esq. At various distances were the Surprise, J. W. Tetiey, Esq; Windward, W. Sinclair, Esq; Ranger, J. A. Clarke, Esq ( just returned from a trip to the Isle of Man); and Plover, R. J, Tetley, Esq, all gaily dressed in flags, and which had been kindly placed there by their owners to add to the gaiety of the scene. The small yachts of the club, with their snow white sails, gaily careening to the breeze as they passed and repassed, were watched with much interest by, we might almost say, thousands of spectators. The committee had changed the starting- place to the south side of Woodside Pier, to the great satisfaction of all belonging to or interested in the club. One of the steamers belonging to the Birkenhead Commissioners left the Woodside Pier a little before two o'clock, at which time the promenade was densely crowded. An excellent start was speedily effected by the Rear- Commodore, at twelve minutes past two o'clock, the Glide taking the lead, followed by theCharm, Elfin, Electric, Snake, Mayflower, and Wasp, in the order in which they are given. From the almost total absence of the wind the sailing qualities of the new yachts could not be developed, and they came in in what may be termed the " ruck." For the first time for some years it was a beating race to Eastham, but the wind fell so rapidly that a close contest could scarcely be expected, the Glide retaining the lead at every flag- boat, and coming in an easy winner. The following is the order in which they arrived at Woodside Ferry :— H, M. S. I n. M. s. I H. M. s GLIDE 6 23 15 MAYFLOWER. . 6 86 14 CHARM 6 41 0 ELECTRIC .... 6 81 4 | SNAKE 6 40 40 | On the arrival of the Glide at the winning post the company on board the steamer and on the Woodside Pier, which was again densely crowded, gave three hearty cheers for the winner. A gun was fired, and the band struck up " See the conquering hero comes." There was a very numerous assembly on board of the steamer. The refreshments were provided by Mr Anderson, of the merchants' new dining rooms, and the band of Mr Phillips attended, and performed some fine selections of music during the match. After the expiration of the race the members dined at the olub house, Mrs Berry's, Canning Hotel, who provided an excellent dinner, comprising all the delicacies of the season. The Vice- Commodore, George Harrison, Esq, presided, faced by the Rear- Commodore, J. Watkins, Esq. HARWICH REGATTAT This regatta, under the auspices of the Royal Harwich Yacht Club, usually one of the most interesting rouud the coast, is ap- pointed to take place on the 30th inst. A great many very hand- some prizes will be given, and amongst them a handsome piece of plate, by A. Arcedeckne, Esq, the Commodore of the club. Mem- bers of the Royal Yacht Clubs are expected to muster strongly upon the occasion. ETON REGATTA. The annual 4th of June regatta took place at Eton on Thursday last. A great number of fashionable families arrived during the day, and a more aristocratic company has not been known for many years. At the usual hour in the evening the long boats were manned as under :— UPPER BOATS.— Monarch, ten- oar: Baring ( capt), Hankey French, Wingfield, Bowyer, Whitmore, Hall, Legge, Ainsworth, Harvey, and Smith ( cox). xrj ^ ' 1' ' Weyer, Hussey, Wynne, and Wood ( cox). Prince Brewer, Harle, Cadogan, Collings, Hincks, Hankey mi, and Clayton ( cox). LOWBE BOATS.— Britannia: Hardy ( capt), Kekewich, Morse, Le Strange, M'Douall, Ward, Turner, Lubbock ma, and Lub- bock mi ( cox). Dreadnought; Severn ( capt), Rushout, Palmer, Somerville, Denwison, Buller, Rowley, Wynne ma, and St Quentin ( cox). Thetis: Walpole ( capt), Coventry, Lord Dun- more, Maxwell, Leny, Lord Newry, Burr, Beach, aud Wood mi ( cox). St George: Kinglake ( capt), Hall Dare, Johnstone, Smith, Cunningham, Wilbraham, Heming, Barnett, and Hop- wood ( GOX). The pull to " Old Surley" was of the usual character, where the " spread" for the aquatics was providsd by Mr Johnson, of the White Hart Hotel, and after the full enjoyment of the many delicacies displayed, the crews returned to Eton, and witnessed, iu conjunction with SOIH.; thousands ef spectators, a very excel- lent display of fireworks. DAMES AND TUTORS.— Ou Wednesday, May 27, the first race of the season, viz, Tutors and Dames, was rowed. The Tutors, who had by far the best and strongest crew, took the lead directly, and eventually won by the length of Tolladay's rails. The erews were as follow: Tutors— 1. Atkinson, 2. Efussey, 3.

" C. M." AND TEt . THAMES CLUBS. MR EDITOR.- The fierce anger of " C. F. J.," who is, I pre- sume, an official of the libelled club, will probably remind his readers of the legal maxim— the greater the truth the greater the libel; and the contempt which he plainly feels for those humble individuals who, like myself, " patronise a steamboat ou a sailing- match day," shows pretty clearly that we are st& l to be kept waiting alongside the wharf until the functionaries in gold lace have finished the breakfast egg, and can reach the steamer with comfort and dignity. It is hardly fair of " C. F. J." to avail himself of the advantage which his well- known nautical skill affords him, and to attempt the annihilation of one whom he sees to be no yachtsman, by giving reasons for delay which are principally " bosh," as our late enemies, the Persians, would say. A day must, of course, be chosen for the match when there will be a tide to bring the vessels back in due time; but so far from a beat against tide not being desirable, we on board the steamer, and also those yachtsmen who have good boats and know how to handle them, think it the best part of a match. At all events the boats are much better employed in beating back than in waiting at Erith for the start, Moreover, to the best of my recollection, the delays have hitherto taken place under all circumstances of wind and tide; but the late match of the R. T. Y. C. has shown such an example of what ought to be done in this respect, that I shall not occupy your columns further on the subject.— Yours, Ac, C. M. PRESERVATION OF LIFE FROM SHIPWRECK. On Thursday a mee4' x, of the Royal National Life Boat Insti- tution was held at its uouse, John- street, Adelphi, the Duke of Northumberland, K. G., President of the Society, in the chair. Mr Lewis, the secretary, having read the minutes of the previous meeting, the silver medal of the institution was presented to Mr Corbet, pilot, in testimony of the intrepid and skilful manner with which he had piloted, during a heavy gale of wind, her Majesty's revenue cruiser Eagle amongst the Totnes rocks, on the Guernsey coast, on the 5th January last, thereby enabling the Eagle's boat to rescue three of the crew of the bark Boadicea, of Shields, which was wrecked on those rocks on that day. That and the crews of the two other boats had received from the institution silver medals, and pecuniary rewards for their brave services on the occasion. A reward of £ 6 was also granted to the crew of the life- boat of the institution stationed at Thorpeness, Suffolk, for their laudable services iu putting off in the life- boat and rescuing three men from a fishing boat which was observed to be in great danger off Sizewell Bank, on the 9th ult. It was stated that the life- boats of the institution had, during the past few months, rescued, on different parts of the coast, upwards of eighty shipwrecked persons from a watery grave. A reward of £ 30 was likewise granted the cr sw of a Lowestoft yawl, forputtingoff in herfrom the shore and rescuing, at much risk of life, the crew of fourteen hands from the bark Morgiana, of Sunderland, which, during an easterly gale, was seen at two o'clock iu the morning of the 10th ult on the Holm Sand. The master of the bark stated that he had lost his vessel by the defective state of his compass. The silver medal and £ 2 were presented to John Aiken, Coast Guardsman at Cushendall, in testimony of his gallant conduct in rushing into the surf and rescuing, at the peril of his life, a man who had fallen off Red Bay Pier. Aiken, from the dragging he received, got liis arm dislocated, and his hand severely hurt, A reward of £ 6 was also granted to two men in acknowledgment of their serv- l " n rescuing, at the imminent peril of their lives, one out of fo^ ^ en whose lishiug boat had, during a terrific gale, sunk in Kenmare Bay. During the past mouth the institution had sent new life- boats to Seaton Carew, Stockton, Penmore, Angle- sey, Braunton Lands, near Bideford, and to Orklow, on " he Irish coast. The cost of the Seaton Carew life-,.'"-' was the gift of a generous donor named W. M'Kerrell, Esq,! j - ' veinstitution, and the trial of the life- boat on her station wassaidtobeof a most satisfactory character. The benevolent gentleman will have the satisfaction to feel, in the event of the Seaton Carew life- boat saving the lives hereafter of any poor shipwrecked sailors, that the same had been the result of his individual gift to the society. An ingenious spirit compass binnacle life- boat lantern was ex- hibited at the meeting, which Mr Dent, of the Strand, had pre- pared, at the request of the institution It was much admired, and a similar one will be supplied to all the life- boats of the so- ciety. Thomas Chapman, Esq, F. R. S., deputy chairman of the society; Captain Washington, R. N., bydrographer of the Ad- miralty, and Edward Hurry, Esq, having been elected vice- presidents of the society, the proceedings closed.

HABRINGTON REGATTA.— Monday, the 25th ult, being the day set apart in West Cumberland fcfr the celebration of " her Ma- jesty's birthday, was also the flay for the Harrington Regatta, the entry for which was restricted to the fishing craft of the county, while pleasure boats were excluded. The competing boats were divided into three classes— the first not exceeding 32 feet keel, the second not exceeding 21 feet, and the third not exceeding 16 feet. Captain John Key started the boats. Mr Henry Robinson was umpire, and Mr James Waugh was trea- surer and secretary. There were five entries of the first class, viz, the Elizabeth and Mary of Harrington, the Mayflower of Workington, the Eva, Solway, and Morning Light of Harrington. For the second class there were seven entries, viz, the Dorothy, Bess, Favourite, Princess Alice, Early Dew, Sam Slick, and Dove. For the third class three entries, viz, Agnes of Parton, Daisy, and Honey Bee of Harrington. The third class started first, and came in as follows:— Agnes first, Daisy second, and Honey Bee third; but the Agnes lost all claim to the prize, owing to her being entered in the wrong class— her keel exceed- ing 16 feet. The second class arrived in the order in which we have placed them above. The first class were led by the Eliza- beth and Mary, followed by Eva, Mayflower, Solway, and Morn- ing Light. PRINCE OF WALES AQUATIC CLUB.— The first match of the season of this club came off on Monday, for a silver cup and and money prizes, and was capitally contested. The distance rowed was from Lambeth Pier to Battersea Bridge, for which the following took their stations, viz:— Messrs H. Bradley, T Wells, J. Jackson, and G. Blanshard, A. Edwards ( cox), ( red) 1, Messrs F. Hunt, C. Scott, J. Hogan, and J. M'Quire, E. Pratt ( cox), ( green) 2 ; Messrs E. Jeffries, W. Watson, C. Eyles, and R. Moss, G. Bowness ( cox), ( blue) 0; Messrs T. Jackson, H. Fare- grave, J. Hunter, and F. Fricker, W. Dineen ( cox), ( pink) 0 ; Messrs E, May, J. Blanshard, C. Isaacs, and J. Barnes, T. Rap- ley ( cox), ( white). Red took the lead, pressed very closely by- white, when the former became clear at the Penitentiary, and, increasing their lead, won by four lengths. The race between the second and third ( green) was very close. They were oar and oar to Chelsea New Bridge, where white began to go away. Green, however, stuck to them, and were only beaten for the second place by half a length. The fourth and fifth boats ( blue and pink) were close together all the way, but a long way be- hind the others. ST JOHN'S HORSELYDOWN REGATTA.— This regatta will take place on Thursday, July 30, when a new boat will be given for the first man, and money prizes to others, aud will be rowed for by six free watermen, and decided in five heats.

Sub scriptions will be thankfully received by Mr J. Kempton, Tailors' Arms, Shad Thames, and acknowledged by the manager, Mr Blackwell. TEMPLE AMATEURS FOUR- OARED RACE.— The four- oared race among the members of this club, took place on Monday last from Westminster to Battersea, and, after a good contest, marked by several changes, was won by Messrs Dyer, Mitchell, CLASPER v WRIGHT.— Mr Editor: I am not surprised that S. Wright, of Norwich, should again seek row with my lad; but I am very much surprised to see that i wishes £ 3 more for ex penses from Norwich to Newcastle than he allowed from New castle to Norwich. If S. W, really means rowing he will come to the same terms as the former matoh, when we shall be happy to accommodate him.— Yours, & c., HENRY CLASPER. AMATEUR SCULLERS MATCH— A sculling match between two gentlemen amateurs of considerable excellence will take place at Kingston- on- Thames on Saturday afternoon at five p. m.

The course of prices in the English Stock Market this week has been rather unfavourable, but yesterday a recovery took place. A little buoyancy was produced by the Bank Directors having determined to make advances on stock during the " shutting," but the unfavourable advices from Paris aud the settlement of the account subsequently produced a decline- Yesterday afwrnoon the market improved, and Consols closed at 93J 94 for money, and at 9441 for account. Exchequer Bills have declined, and are now at a few shillings discount for those advertised to be paid off. The latest nrices on Friday afternoon of the English Funds were :— Bank Stock, 213* Consols, 93J 4 New Three ~! ents, 92f f Long Annuitv >, 1885), 18 1- 16 Exchequer Bills par to 4s pm IndiaBonds ( under £ l, 000) 4dis India Stock, 220i 22 Consols for Account, 94£ f Foreign Sn.. iss have been dull, but their quotations have not undergone any material change, Turkish Six per Cents closed at 94f to 95 yesterday afternoon. Mexican, Dutch, Spanish, aud South American securities generally have been steady. The latest prices of the Foreign Funds on Friday afternoon were :— Belgian, 96i Brazilian, 99101 Buenos Ayres, 87 ex- div Chilian, 101 3 Equador, 134 1 11 Grenada, 224 34 Mexican, 22f Peruvian, 76 8 Portuguese, 46| Russian, 1084 Sardinian, 88 90 Spanish Three perCents, 414 24 Ditto New Deferred, 25f 4 Ditto Passive, 54 6 Turkish Six per Cents, 94f Do. Four per Cents, 10If Venezuela, 35 7 Dutch Two- and- a- Half per Cents, 644 54 Ditto Four per Cents, The Railway Share Market during the past week has been rather active, and prices have fluctuated to a considerable extent. In the early part of the week, full rates were current, but they aftewards gave way, in some few instances to a considerable extent. Subsequently, however, upon the settlement of the account in the English Stock Market, prices showed a con- siderable improvement. Great Northern, Lancashire and Yc - shire, Brighton, Chester and Holyhead and Midland, have de- clined about 1, Caledonian If, North^ Western 2, and Great Western 3 per cents, compared with the rates current on this day week. The Foreign and Colonial lines have also fluctuated to some extent, generally in a downward direction. Great Cen- tral of France have receded 4, Northern of France i, Grand Trunk of Canada 1 to 14, and Great Western of Canada East Indian declined 4. and Namur and Liege, and Great Luxem- bonrg J. Mines, Banks, and Miscellaneous shares have been moderately active; in most instances at slightly reduced quotations. Cobre Copper declined £ 1,? Bank of London £ 1, Royal Mail Steam 10s, Australasian Bank advanced 10s to 15s. Electric Telegraph re- ceded 10s. THE DRAMA- HER MAJESTY'S THEATRE.— The opera of " Nino" was re- vived on Tuesday for the first appearance of Signor Corsi, a bass singer who, by his vocal and histrionic qualities, has acquired a solid reputation both in Italy and Paris. On his first entrance, clad as the Assyrian King, Signor Corsi does not make a remark- ably favourable impression, his short, stout figure, rendered stouter by the Oriental costume, scarcely according with the idea of a tragic hero. But the correctness of his vocalization and the skill with which he manages a not very powerful voice soon gain for him the respect of his audience, who feel that they are listen- ing to a well- trained and conscientious singer. By her delineation of the virago, Abigail, Mademoiselle Spezia made a decided ad- vance in public estimation. Her air at the commencement of the second act was applauded with real enthusiasm, and her duet with Signor Corsi in the third was followed by an una- nimous call for both. HAYMARKET THEATRE.— On Monday night a drama, pro- fessedly original, but probably based upon some French story, was brought out at this theatre with unequivocal success. It is entitled " A Husband for an Hour," and the author is Mr Falkoner, whose five- act play, " The Cagot," was produced at the Lyceum last winter. Mr Buckstene, Miss Reynolds, and Mr W. Farren played exceedingly well, but none of the characters admit of very forcible colouring or are thrown into very striking situations. At the fall of the curtain tbe applause was universal, and, though there is not much ingenuity of plot or brilliancy of dialogue, the democratic sentiments which pervade the whole appeared to toucn the sympathies of the audience. ADELPHI THEATRE.— Madame Celeste took her annual benefit on Wednesday. The occasion was celebrated by the first per- formance of a new and original drama, in five acts, by Dion Bourcicault: it is entitled " George Darville," the name of the hero, which affords a long and elaborate part to Mr Webster. This personage first appears as a young man of artistic talent, who dares aspire to the hand of the only daughter of his em- ployer, a wealthy merchant, but he is spurnesl by the father, though beloved by the daughter. In this state of mind he finds a pocket- book, with twenty thousand pounds in it, which a Mr Leslie has lost. Tempted by the thief who has stolen it, he takes half the amount, and is announced as having suddenly succeeded to a fortune, and being re- introduced to his late em- ployer, marries the daughter. The man who hg" been robbed is supposed to have appropriated the notes, whhn ' ists his cha- racter, and flings a reproach on his family, aau i, nus, doubly wronged, he commits suicide. This completes the remorse of George Darville, who henceforth is a crime- stricken wretch, who undergoes every phase of fear and mental distress. His wife at last discovers his crime, and seeks to atone for it by over- whelming kindness to the children of the unhappy suicide, and then dies heartbroken at the discovery. Tbe part of the wife was played by Madame Celeste. The acting was indeed throughout admirable; aud even had not the drama the intrinsic merit which it does possess, it would be worth while to see it for the sake of the artistic delineation. Mr Webster was careful to the slightest intonation, and occa- sionally gave bursts of passion, which being inteus^ Pj • ts- ue to nature, produced apowerful effect. Mr Wright played a comic, but strongly natural character, with admirable feeling and dis- crimination ; being deliriously droll in the eomic portion, and strictly true in the pathetic. Of course he made the most of a lapse of ten years between one of the acts, opening the next with five boys and four girls, boasting that he has not been idle in the interim. This family of five young Wrights and four Miss Wyndhams was the source of much merriment; and Miss Wynd- ham as the young bride and as the matron, acted very pleasingly. Mr Paul Bedford, as the accomplice in crime of Darville, did the little he had to do very judiciously, and told the story of his life with strong character and humour. The mountings are in the best Adelphi style, and comprise several elaborately set scenes, painted by Messrs Pitt and Charles Brew. The success of the drama was genuine and triumphant. ATTEMPTED SALE OF CROSBY HALL.— On Wednesday Mr Fox put up to auction, at the Auction Mart, tbe premises known as Crosby Hall, Bishopsgate- street. The biddings began at £ 4,500, and went up to £ 5,990, at which they were stopped, when the auctioneer remarked that the property was not sold. SALE OF THE GARRICK THEATRE.— On Thursday, at the Auction Mart, Mr Robins offered to public auction the lease- hold property known as the Garrick Theatre, situated in Leman- street, Goodman's Fields, with the scenery, properties, and wardrobe. The property was built about two years ago, and affords accommodation for about 1,620 persons; held for an un- expired term of 59 years, at a ground- rent of £ 25 per annum, and the theatre is now let at a rent of £ 520 per annum. Knocked down at £ 2,950. The total cost of the property was stated to have been £ 6,000. EXECUTION FOR MURDER.— Ou Thursday morning, George Bave as executed in front of Maidstone C aol. The culprit was a seaman on board the Sianey gun- boat, and he was convicted at tbe May session of the Central Criminal Court of the murder of Samuel Long, a corporal of Marines on board the same vessel, by stabbing him with a bayonet, the act having been committed iu a most deliberate manner, and under a feeling of revenge on account of the corporal having reported Bave for some act of misconduct, and thereby, as he supposed, prevented him from being promoted to the position ef quartermaster. THE LATE COLLIERY ACCIDENT AT INCE.— INQUEST UPON THE BODIES.— The result of the late catastrophe at Kirkless Hall colliery has proved far more serious than was at first anti- cipated. Out of 13 injured four have since died, making a total loss of nine lives. Two others of the injured persons are not likely to recover. On Monday Mr Duffield held an inquest upon the bodies of seven of the unfortunate persons at Ince. After hearing the evidence, and long deliberation, the jury arrived at the unanimous verdict—" That the deceased met their deaths cidentally in a coalmine, by an explosion of gas, but how the explosion originated there was no evidence to show, and recom- mended the use of safety- lamps inplace of caudles in the Hindley mine in future."

Only limited supplies of English Wheat have been received up t9 our market this w eek, coastwise and by land- carriage. The demand, however, is inactive, at ahout previous rates. A very large supply of Foreign Wheat having come to hand, that article has sold slowly, at barely last week's currency. Floating cargoes, however, are held at very full prices. Barley is in moderate request, at full prices, although an extensive supply of Foreign has come to hand. Malt sells slowly, on former terms. JOats are rather easier to purchase, owing to an increased supply from abroad, Beans, Peas, and Flour meet a steady sale.— Cuirentprices. perquarter.— British:— Wheat.

LEATHER MARKET, FRIDAY.— The transactions have been of a moderate character this week, on account of the holidays. During the past month the business in the Leather trade has considerably increased in consequence of a disposition to accept rather lower rates for some descriptions of goods. The weekly sales have also exceeded the sup- plies, and the accounts generally concur in representing that very small stocks are held by consumers throughout the kingdom. Under these circumstances it is fully anticipated that greater activity will shortiy prevail.— Crop Hides, 281b to 4alb each, I7d to 21d per lb; 101b to 541b, 21d to 23d; 511b to 601b, — d to 23d ; Bull Hides 13d to 15d ; Vitrol Butts, Od to Od; English Butts, 22d to 31d ; Foreign Butts 20d to 29d; Foreign Hides, 16Jdtol9d; Dressing Hid « s 16d to20d; ditto Shaved, 18d to 22Jd; hest Saddlers* Hides, 19d to 21^; English Horse Hides, 14d to 18d: German Hides, 14d to 19d; Spanish Horse Hides lad to 21 d; Calf Skins ( if rounded, 2d to 4d per lb more), 821b to 401b per dozen, I9a to 24d; 421b to 501b, 19d to 25d; 621b to 601b, 19d to 23d; 621b to 1001b, 19d to 21d; Seal Skins large, — d to— dj small,— d to — d; Kips, lid to Sad; Basils. 9d to lid ; Bellies, lid to 14d; Shoulders, 17d to 21d.
