PEDESTRIANISM . Doings at the Royal Oak , Barking Road . TUESDAY , MAT 24 . —This being the natal day of her Majesty , and the weather continuing so fine , every thing wore a holiday appearance . The launch of a g igantic vessel at Mr . Mare s , Black wall , brought an immense assemblage to that locality , and some hundreds of the spectators , after that event , repairing to tho racing grounds of Mr . Beswick at the Royal Oak , imparted a degree of life and spirit not altogether usual even in these generally well - frequented grounds . Tho arrangements of the matters connected with the running and walking matches , were of a most satisfactoril y improving character , much of which may bo attributed to tho energetic conduct of Mr . Chandler , who exerted- himself very much , both to preserve order , and insure punctuality . Tho opening of the day was an essay of young Frank Priestley to walk six miles within one hour , for £ o a side , and manfully did he go through his task , and wo...

Great TUies for the Press . Bailroad and steamboat companies find it cheaper to give the press a free excursion and their supper , now and then , than to advertise ; for the editorial notices they receive in return are of far more value than a plain advertisement . The alderman was right when he said almost any editor could be bought . Editors were very severe on our City Fathers , for their rumored dereliction of duty , but they are invited to accompany these same aldermen on free excursions , and not a word has been said against them since .
