"The Derby and Oaks disputed plate has been awarded to Satyr, the actual, if not exactly pro formâ winner of it.

John Day, sen., and his “ Co,” Mr. Powney, the joint owners of the Hero, have very gallantly presented the Emperor's Vase to Mrs. Gully, and sold the Queen's Vase to his Grace the Duke of Bedford. The former part of the story reads the better of the two. There is something terribly discordant in thus buying and selling these laurel crowns.

Abingdon races, we rejoice to find, are about to be revived—and why not Oxford ?

The Goodwood Stake, with an acceptance of sixty-three has taken, all things considered, a tolerably fair hold on the market ; the Questionable, Vampire, Stultz, Milliner, and Martext being most in demand ---at least, up to the last Thursday, when one of those indefinite announcements regarding the favourite was sported, which goes to warn the public that they must not cry out if they are disappointed. Such courtesies, we fancy, are more honoured in the breach than the observance, and for this reason—the general impression is, or ought to be, that an English gentleman and pure sportsman will run his horse, if he be in anything like form, when the public have pinned their faith to him. The careto, if he does not run, consequently becomes unnecessary; while if he does, such good natured advice looks a little problematical.

For the Cup the Hero's strength increases as the time approaches ; the next now in favour being Eryx, with all his Newcastle honours fresh upon him ; then the Frenchman, Fitz-Emilius, no little aided, of course, by the welcome in weight these elaborate conditions allow all foreigners. Wolf Dog's honest Ascot running yet finds him a friend or two, but still not many ; while Mendicant's all appear to have forsaken her. The change of air hitherto has not done much for either the Oaks or Leger winner of 'forty-six, and the odds are they never hold their own, or reach such prices again. Just at present the Goodwood Cup business is nearly all one way, and nothing touches the Hero, either in pocket or performance.

The last appearances in the provinces have effected no great changes in the Leger. Even Lord Eglinton's immense success in the north has scarcely been worth a point to the Dutchman, self included ; though certainly the good form in which Red Hart disposed of nothing at Stockbridge has produced a more decided reaction, and admirers once more talk of how he ought to have won the Derby, and will win the Leger. These threats, however, are only uttered each under each," for it's more and more “ Our John,” for all or anything in the ring. A whisper over two to one against Cossack, and it's taken, with Foreclosure and the Farmer's Daughter to fall back on, the mare for choice. We shall not be surprised to see her a strong favourite.

For the Derby Mr. Green has, in the power of his might, been pleased to make his last winner his first favourite, and then the world follows the fashion by taking Danebury's word and practice as to Nil Desperandum
