Xihil sine Lahore,. FEBRUARY 14th, ISSS. Si.1 out in the Australian Colonies is carried on in a much more expensive mariner and on a much more extensive scale iii proportion to the number forming the sporting community than in the mother country. The great na tional events in England, the Derly, the St. Leger. the Grand. National Steeplechase at Liverpool, are closely rivalled by the biggest race meeting m the Southern Hemisphere, the Mel bourne Cup Meeting, both. as regards attendance of the sporting public, the value of the stakes competed for and the stamp of horses running. While in England the great jockey clubs are supported by their entries and fees of membership, and provide sport lor a very large population, in Australia every little country town has its race meeting, and the value of the stakes is comparatively small, the quality and sttninaa of the horses competing is of no mean character.

Vasse Notes. (From our Correspondent.) February 18tb, 1888. The one topic of the week has been i the Fancy Dross Ball, which came off on Friday evening last, and which, as I 1 anticipated, was an eminently I successful gathering. The various characters were really well got up, I many of the dresses were rich, and altogether beyond what one might expect to meet with in a provincial town. There were nearly 100 pi'esent jind-fche room with the gay and varied figures of the dancers was a very pleasing sight, one that would in no way have disgraced the Metropolis. J have heard several opinions as to the Belle of the evening, but I think the palm is justly due to Miss Gcorgiana Bunbury, who as ''Queen of May' may with justice be considered the Queen of the Ball. Next comes Miss BJLlonsman. in a dreys of the Grecian 'period, true to style and i'l exquisite taste, in fact with some this lady wax considered equal to Miss Bunbury. Miss Lockhart, as vvitcn, was inimit able, and considering the...
