RUTHERFORD RACES. Those races, so long expccted and which were recently postponcd on account of the inclemency of tho weather, took placo on Thursday and Frid«y last. The weather was very propitious. A few light-southerly showers fell on tho morning of Thursday, but tho clouds soon passed away, leaving exposed tho dcop and beautiful blue of an Australian hir.vim. Yesterday was, if possible, still finer than the preceding day. As a inattor of course, such viMither lured to tlio race-course the usual amount of orinolino, muslin, and ribbons, and served to assist in tho very important business of chasing dull carc away.

Arias Frances -Brown. — Few episodes aro to be met with in the rango of metaphysical history more interesting than the life of this true poetess, who, debarred by Jnn early visitation of Providence from participation in the active duties of the world, has worked out for herself a noble vocation in the inner sphero of thought. More eloquent, surelv. of the power of the mind than the deeds of the world's heroes, is the conqucst of knowledge nnd wisdom by this lovely girl, under circumstances which would have doomed a less fiuely-conslitntcd temperament to life-long darknoss and inactivity. Frances Brown, the seventh child of a family of twelve, was born on the lGth of .Tune, 1818, at tlio village or Strnnorlar, Donegal, of which her father was the postmaster. The first event in her young life was the permanent loss of sight at the age of eighteen months, owing to a severe attack of small-pox, then very prevalent in the neighbourhood.

Mandelson Brothers and Co., of Gundagai, and received in exchange two orders for £60 on Mr. Mandelson, of Sydney, arranged to give his pursuers the slip for some time, they having been on a wrong scent. He was traced as far as Yass, and it   was presumed be went towards Goulburn or Bathurst. On the news being received by the police here, a consta ble was despatched on the mail to Berrima ; but he returned unsuccessful. It appears that the fellow on leaving Yass (being mounted) made across the country to   Queanbeyan, where he is well known, and where he got hard cash for his fraudulent paper from Mr. A. Levy. It is supposed that he has gone across Maneroo to Two fold Bay, where he hopes, probably, to join the Mel bourne steamer.
