THE return of the Ballarat (Victoria) Meeting, given below, is, we imagine, a pretty clear proof that racing, in Australia, does not pall upon the appetite ; but rather, that the more we have of it tile more we can tlo with. Coming, as it did, so close upon the heels of the two Metropolitan Meetings, with that of Castlemaine added to the>n, we slow coaches of New South Wales might have imagined there would be a scarcity of horses, a want of interest, and an absence of sport ; with j a certainty attached to each event ; but the result ' has proved the exact opposite to have been the case ;-'and our neighbours may certainly felicitate themselves upon having solved the great problem of racing. The entries seem to have quite come up to the numerical average ; the sport was all that could be wished, and almost every race turned out a triumph for the " fielders." 1 he only items of interest for ourselves that attach to the meeting are, that the New South Wales, colt, "Colonel...
