AMOTO THE BOXERS. I [By 'Boxek-Major.'] MTJE.PHT v. BURGESS. 36 Ronnds— A Draw On Tuesday night a benefit wis tendered to the Evicted Irish Tenant's I'und, when several of our leading boxers lout their aid to bring tho performance to u successful issue. Among them may be mentioned Tom Taylor and Nolan, who -? ire a splendid show, the former of whom -was knocked out in the third round. After si couple of others had Bhown their hands to tho best of their advantage, Alurpliy ana Burgess came on, and whether for the onuso of ' Old Ireland ' or not, that they played up tlio game to such advantage, I aui not in a position to say ; but that they did fight in earnest I am prepared to awoar.

Nelson was accom panied by All Gold once round the inner tnick, after which the New Zealander con tinued the gallop, making altogether two miles. Trident worked on the tan in company with Hexham the last time round. Duti'erin and Hogmanay also did good work. Arsenal and llie Orphan were given long work on tho tan, and First Game went a smart spin, whilst Middlemareh spun once round with E.D. in a very brilliant style. Lochiel commenced with striding work, but not eon tent with that he galloped quite thri'e miles on his own account. Mitrailleuse went a fast mile, and Volcano was accorded a spin of six furlongs.

MELBOURNE BETTING MARKET. The /try us of Monday says: — Some ad ditional nioves of importance took placc at the Victorian Club on Saturday night with respect to the Newmarket Handicap. Quintin Matsep was first of all brought into the market, and backcd to win jEGOOO at 100 to 5, a price which was still wanted, but 100 to 0 was then tho best offer. The South Australian Satyr was likewise the medium of some spirited wagering, about JM000 being written down at 100 to 4, after which 100 to 5 was offered. Tho Wagga IIIUUUl, IUU.I.J..I.UO U..U UUllllHII dueeit, and quite JJtOOO was secured at 100 to :i, when a point less was tho most liberal offer. As regards Master John and William Tell, both were very firm at 8 to 1 offered. About tho former, 2000 to 200 would havo been taken, whilst the market is pretty well exhausted in tho case of William Tell. The Australian Cup was comparatively quiet, the only transaction noted being 200 to 15 twice about Trident. Nelson would have had supporters ...

[BY "EARLY BIRD."] Mr. John Driscoll 's Stables. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887

[By Early BiRD.jp . Sir. John Driscoll's Stables. Strolling along leisurely on; Monday afternoon towards the bottom of Bonrke street, Surry Hills, I fell in with Mr. John Driscoll, who, I am happy to state, is fast recovering from an attack of illness. After a few moment's conversation I ascertained that he had taken possession of stables in the neighbourhood, and as he was wending his way in the direction in which they are situated, I gladly accom panied him m order to run tho rule over liis boxes, and horses, too, for that matter. Of the gentleman himself there scarcely need be anything said, as perhaps there is not a more irivlely known person in the colony, or one who has performed to such, an extent in the saddle as he. Of course this does not relate to present days, but to tho days of old Yattendon, Tim Whiffler and Co., days when racing was carried on in the good old English style, not for the sake of filthy lucre, but for good honest sport. I merely make mention of these fac...

TVithJ fine weather our southern friends will have a high time of it, and as they know liow to do things in the proper way a very enjoyable meeting may be looked forward to. Most of the New South Wales sporting people have taken their departure, the consequence being that the rooms and usual places of resort by sports wear a very dreary and lonely appearance. So many ?; horses have been supported honestly and I above board for the leading race of the first day — tlie Newmarket Handicap — that the task of deciding on one to pull me through is not only bewildering but posi tively difficult.
