MATCH BETWEEN" VAN TROMP AND DOHA, FOE £200 A-SIDE. "i he long pending race between thc Fort Phillip horse Van Tromp, and the well-known mare Dora, came off yesterday afternoon at Homebush, and resulted in the complete defeat of the former, who was one-footed from tue 6tart to the finish by the little marc.

For some time past a deal ol' interest had been felt is sporting circles in connexion with this race, which it was generally believed would be keenly contested, notwithstanding the comparative disadvantages under which the Victoria horse lay, in having to contend with a strange op ponent upon ground which was new to him,, and peculiarly unsuited, moreover, to his pre vious style of runnin...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 11 September 1856
AMEBICA. The whole of the candidates for the Presidency of the United States have been selected. The Know-Nothing Anti-FiUmore Convention met in New York on the 12th Jone, and chose Mr. Banks,-jun., of Massaçhussetts, as their candidate for the Presidency, and Mr. W. F. Johnson, of Prainsylvania for the Vice-Presidency. During the pro ceedings the whole of the New Jersey Delegation, with a few other persons, quitted the Convention, on the ground that it was becoming too decided in its partiality to slavery extension. They started a separate Convention, and nominated Robert F. Stockton, of New Jersey, and Kenneth Rayner, of North Carolina, as their candidates. It was hoped that the Rnow-Notbingst would make a selection which would be acceptable to the Free-Soilers, but this hope has apparently not been rea lised, for the Free-Soilers and Repub lican party met in Pennsylvania on the 17th, and nominated Colonel Fremont. The feeling in favor of Mr. Buchanan does not appear to be very en...

Here is one of them who tried yesterday, in defi ance CFen of an etiquette modified to suit his countrymen, to parade his re i publican person before the Queen, at Levee, in a frock coat, black neck cloth, and a yellow waistcoat. The thing itself was trivial, but the object ! was unmistakable. He wished to have it to boast that he had compelled I the Queen io forego -the usages of her i Court in his especial behoof. He tred j to accomplish this national feat under ! the wing of Mr Dallas, who, when ap pealed to, supported his countryman and left the Palace in a pet. Well! after all, we suppose her Majesty will continue to hold levees in spite of Mr i Dallas's displeasure.

- ^TfiE LAW OF PRICES. I THSÜrsi; tiung to be attendédto ia the. way in which the price of any article brought to market is affected by the variations on the one hand, and ot the demand'for it on the other. The holden of sogar, for example, after having reseryed what they need for their own use, bring the whole surplus to market, where they dispose of it in return for those other things which they do need. It must he quite obvious, ? that if there be more of this sugar ex posed than there is a demand forr the ; great force of the competition will be among the sellers, to get it off their hands. Each will try to outstrip the others, by holding out a greater in ducement for purchasers to buy from him-and ibis be can only do by hold ing it out to them on cheaper terms. It is thus that each tries to undersell the rest-or, in other words, the great supply of any article of exchange is always sure to bring down the price of it. On the other hand, let the same article have been sparingly b...
