In one case death has occurred, in another recovery is still doubtful, and 111 a tmrd but scant hopes are entertained that a fatal result will not follow. Tho series of acci dents which haye produced these consequences and others of a minor character commenced just as thehoi-ses were passing the winning post for thetuMdyor's Plate. In order that readers at a distance; may undei-stand how most of these mis fortunes have occurred, it will be necessary we should preface our account with a short descrip tion of tins part of the course. Up to the present yeari the straight running, as about 200 yards just preceding the judges' box are termed, wits only en closedliby two ropes, one on each side, which extended for about 50 yards along the course ; but finding; iby experience that these ropes were insufll cientmtoikeep ...

For the modest sum of sixpence, the price of a ' nobbier,' or a. glass of heer, the resident of, or a visitor to this city, may take a day's walk through an exhibition of articles of industry unparalleled on this side the equinoctial line. He has only to walk, or take a car, from the heart of the city, along Swans ton-street, to the large building adjoining the Public Library, and his eyes may be delighted and his heart gratified by witnessing specimens of the productions, natural and manufactured, of the whole of the Australian colonies. On entering the build ing, the first court on the left strikes the visitor as being almost a medimval chapel, except for the new ness of the articles exhibited therein. .There are altars, fonts, stained windows, and all the other paraphernalia of churches of the ago before our present utilitarian ideas had transformed everything in the way of art into models of ugliness.

There was a tolerably fair attendance — considering that ninny of the farmers are yet busy stacking and threshing — from Coghill's Creek, Chines, Ascot, Smeaton, Creswiek, and other parts of the district. The grand stand was pretty full, and the saMling-paddock more patronised than on preceding occasions. The ring was largely represented, numbers of the fraternity being pre sent. Very little money, however, seemed to change hnnds, the bets being neither nume rous nor largo. The races, generally speaking, were' pretty good, and but one protest was made during the day, viz., that against Teddington, in the Hack ltace. for not having started in the first heat along with the rest.
