THE T Ü R F . I» point of actual racing, thc week has been a; blank, but matters are assuming an active appear- ance, as far as future events are concerned. The J programmes^of Cowra and Tamworth will be found in their proper place, each affording considerable opportunities to horses ,of the,second division. We ought undoubtedly, to have bad the entries for tbe'Queensland. Champion Race to have given our readers this week ; but, as will be seen hy our correspondent's letter, they have not yet been made known. This is a great oversight, if not an actual injustice, on the part of the stewards, who have evidently much to learn before the3' can bring out a first-class meeting in -proper style. Many have been the guesses which we have seen in print as to the number of horses entered fur eacb of the colonies, and the uncertainty of every thing has given r/se to a little speculation, of a description which does no good to racing. We, for our part, know nothing, further than that the Queens...
