BLANKET FLAT AND DAYLESFORD MINING REPORT. The Corinella Company washed out during the last fortnight 325 oz 16 dwt of gold (nearly two thirds of which was, however, obtained last week). The gold was of a coarse description and some of the nuggetD weighed from four to five ounces each. A considerable quantity of the ground taken out last wiek, though obliged to be removed in order to admit of the claim being worked systematically, was barely of paying value. The Champagne, or No. 2 shaft, is now in full working order, the men having been employed during the earlier portion of the week in clearing out the drive. A very large quantity of washdirt can bo operated upon at this shaft owing to the superior facilities provided for puddling and washing oft', and the con sequent Baving of labor and time thereby secured. The washdirt on being landed is immediately emptied into a hopper close to the shaft, from which it passes with a stream of water into a horizontal cylinder made of boiler pl...

CLTJNES MINING REPORT. The Pott Phillip Company crushed, at the lower batteries, 584 tons of quartz, raised fay the Clunes Company; the yield was 232 oz 8 dwt ot gold. The upper batterieB crushed 333 tons, but as the gold has not yet been cleaned out the result cannot be given.

The machine is expected to be permanently at work in a few days, and another parcel of tailings is now being roasted, preparatory to being operated on in the Chilian mills. The South Clunes Company is continuing the sinking of the engine shaft, and a depth of about four feet was sunk during the week.

THE VICTORIAN RACING CLUB AUTUMN MEETING. On Saturday tlie attendance of the public at these races was much larger than on the previous day, the grand stand being fairly tilled and the hill alive with people. The day was gloriously fiue, and in the absence of the railway, Cabby managed to Becure an abundant harvest of passengers. Carriages, four-horse drays, buggies, light carts, and other vehicles contributed to the gaiety of the scene. As a matter of course, there were several break-downs on the road, principally the result of Cabby's endea vors to get more v.-ork out of his horses than horse flesh could endure. The Governor, accompanied by his aid-de-camp, Captain Tyler, arrived on the ground shortly after the first race, and remained till the conclusion of the day's sports. A good deal of money was invested on the various races, and as the favorites in almost every case camo in the winners, the bookmakers must have suflered heavily. The last two races on the card, viz., the Town...
