The liorso is givon left handed exercise, and takes to the alteration kindly. Should all go well with him, and he be allowed to start, there certainly could not be abetter outsider, and tho fact of hi3 worthy owner and trainer being gentlemen above suspicion is quite guarantee enough to cause a lump of money to be written opposite his name. Tho big run made by Lord William in tho Hawkes bury Handicap, his third in tho Sydnoy Cup to Bohemian and Jewel, and tho meri torious dash Bhown by him in tho October Handidap, stamp him 18-carat. With re spect to the movements of those who aro not intended to cross the bordei-, littlo can be said of interest to our readers at pre sent, as a great percentage , who wero wound up for the recent Metropolitan meeting have been eased off.

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Sir Henry Parkes is undeniably right in his contention that the present distress among tho unemployed might be advan tageously relieved by tho construction of a pormftnent, public work of a national character, in which tlieir labours may take a form of enduring value for the benefit of the colony.
