A JOCKEY-The duty of a jockey is to win, and not to do more than win. Half   a neck is enough where his antagonist is exhausted and as much judgment is shown   in avoiding useless exertion as in making     that which is sufficient. The best and most expert jockeys, such as Robinson and Chifney, avoid the use of the whip, if pos- sible. Boys more readily resort to it, and   thereby sometimes lose a race, that might otherwise have been won. When a race- horse is in the full exercise of his of his   power, and doing his best, the blow of a whip will sometimes make him wince and     shrink; he will, as it were, tuck up his     flanks to escape from the stroke, and raising his legs higher up, will lose ground instead of stretching himself forth over a larger surface. In this way considerable space         may...

Miscellaneous Extract*. - r A Peculiar Race.— I have now and then met a' peculiar race , scattered through Ire-: land, with lovely, rich, dark; brown hair, Having a golden tinge — the real auburn;: the skin is soft and beautiful ; the thinking forehead forms almost aline with the straight mild nose; the mouth; lips, and chin are exquisite ; the teeth are white and well set ; and then that expressive, soft, dark eye con tains so much honest love, it really speaks; the whole countenance- is expanded and open * such harmony of parts.

THE ERp3ENT- STA.TE OF IRELAND; It would be impossible for any person pos eessed of the common .feelings of humanity to peruse without emotion the heart-rending details of national calamity, lately submitted by the Irish newspaper press, to the con sideration' of the whole civilised world. We Bay, 'the whole civilised world,' because we feel satisfied that the voice of such in cessant: lamentation, cannot fail to have penetrated even tp to its remotest corner. England-r~so long the ' cynosure' of neigh bouring nations, may rest assured there are not wanting amongst them those who would seize:with avidity any promising opportu nity of wreaking upon her the hoarded ma lignity of years, and God only knows to what extent the misfortunes of her unhappy sister may be rendered subservient to the purpose.
