Sundry/Sport. THE ONKAPARINGA RAGES. THERE is very little doing now over the Onkaparinga meeting (writes our Adelaide correspondent). Sluggard has somewhat paralysed the betting in the Hurdle Race. ¡Hé ÍB backed down to 2 tp.l, 6 to 4 being 'now the best* ofter. If fit and well on the day, true sports will no doubt lay odds on him. He is reckoned a dead bird by most, people ..who have seen him run in. Melbourne., ; Others,, however, hold to the belief that he is not clever,when the pace ÍB made a cracker; which is Bure to bethe case on Easter Monday. Of his pace there is not the slightest doubt, as he won the Silverton Cup pretty easily in 3 min. 42i"Becs., being fast time on such a sandy course. Then,- again, in Melbourne he galloped over his field in the Hurdle Race in 4 min. £sec., beating Quilt easily in the run home. Quilt won the Horsham Cup in 2 min. 4l£ sec , one and a half mile, which must stamp him SB a fair horse. Sluggard has 13st. to carry here-a weight never seen on hi...

The Forming of Argent street. MEETING a representative of the MINER to-day, Mr. Hanna, the local officer of the Public Works department, who is respon- sible for the formation of the main street, alluded to a paragraph which lately appeared in the MINES, giving the opinion of. a road-making authority, who con- demned . the manner in which that thoroughfare had been formed.

He said he had done the best with the materials at hand, considering the dry nature of the climate. It was impossible for a road to "set" properly without a good fall of rain, and for months after Argent-street was formed no rain fell'.
