THE BELLRINGERS. -4-- On .aturday evening last, the Lynch family of Bellringers gave one of their enjoyable entertainments, and were rewarded by a good house.

The pieces rendered on the bells were executed with precision, and the nerformers were loudly applauded, as they richly deserved. Tihe pianist, Mr Wards, is a first rate musician, and a great acquisition to the company. The dancing, comic singing, and negro ereentricities of Mr F. Verten wire received with great deliuht by the younger portion of his audience, and erected with loud and prolonge? app'ause by the elders, and in the farce of Mr Johnson In want of a coachman, in the character of "Pompey," fairly brought down the house.

M-ANSFIELD RACES. [BY ELECTRIC TELEORAPH.] (FROM OUR OWN CORIESPONDENT.) FIRST DAY. MANSlrarLD, Thursday. There was a good muster of the public at to-day's races, including many from other dfatricts. The weather was beautifully fine, and the racing good, the various events being well contested. As was contemplated at first no race for two-year-olds took place, although several had been trained for some time post for this particular race, and it seemed a pity it should have fallen through after such trouble had been gone to by owncrs end trainers of horses. One accident occurred in the Hurdle Race, Mr Kelson's black more Fiddle fell heavily the second time round, and severely injured both rider and herself, in fact it is fcared the mare will have to be shot.
