'T H E T ü R F». WB have, indeed, but little intelligence this week in the racing line, nothing having been actually done. There is, however, every" chance of n little stir in such matters within the next week or two', as on'next Friday, the 23rd, the acceptances for the Free Handicap are to be made,"a fact to which we must call the attention of all racing men. The firs^meeting of Tattersall's for the present season will be held on Friday night, to receive and ruminate upon the' Free Handicap, and commence speculation upon that and other coming events. We hope the members will muster in force, as many matters of interest will be discussed. It will be 'seen hy advertisement that the stud of ¡VIe«srs.

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SYDNEY AUGUST 17, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle — 17 August 1861

BSLL'S- UPE IN SYDNEY. . STDirxVi AUGUST 17, 1801. TUB news received by the June mail although' ."not of_remarkablä imporiance, will nevertheless be read with interest, containing as it does much that is worthy of attention. The political intelli- gence received does not wear a very satisfactory appearance ; continental affairs continuing preg- nant with those elements of agitation which threaten the future tranquillity of Europe. The most noticeable feature in English politics is the repeal of the paper duty, a measure that must necessarily give an impetus to the development of mental progress, mid the dissemination of knowledge amongst the people. The long agi- tated question of the abolition of church rates, a matter of such importance to the dissenting por- tion of the community, 1ms assumed a position which clearly indicates that the time is not far distant when the dissenters will be relieved from a burthen beneath which they have so long groaned ; and from which it is only ju...

BII/LUBDS.-A match of 400 up, at the English gamo, waa played lost Monday.'nt tho Albion hotel, Bourko street, between Mr. J. Stevenson and Mr. J. Iiiunb. On . previous occasion Mr. Xarnb had given his present opponent 50 points in 800, and won after *. very close contest by six points only. On this occasion ho gave 80 out of 100, adding 30 points for tho additional hundred. This difference in tho number of points given caused Mr. Stevenson to be the favorite at 5 to 4. -Tlio gama was commenced by judicious miases on both sides, and con- tinued for soma ¿tina with oxcossivo caution.

When the nnnounoomont of KlarikotTs narrow escape from destruction by firo, en route from Malton to Lea- therhead, appeared exclusively in thaso columns the week boforo tho Dorby, many people wore disposed to trent tho affair as a canard ; whilst Mr Scott, on tho other hand, regarded it as an oqually lnckv omen as tho accident that occurred to Cotherstone on his way to Upson» in 1813, and tho running off tho rails of tho'truck upon which the doubla van was placed that convej ed tho win- nora of tho Derby anil Oaks-Daniel O'Rouvke and SongstrosR-in 1852.
