THE THEBARTON RACES.
FIRST DAY—WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 31.
These races commenced on Wednesday, December 31. From the number of horses entered, and many of them stading high in the estimation of the sporting public, in addition to the care and expense which the Com-
mittee of the Jockey Club had bestowed to snake the coarse attractive to the general public il was s—t—a paled that this meeting would greatly surpass all the previous ones in drawing- the largest number of viaiton; and -no doubt each would have been tbe eaae bad the elements been propitious; but unl—lxmately thsy were moat adverse, for at eady dawn a strong Lot wind oom menoed to blow, raising the dost all over tbe city aad along tbe roads leading into it, and for two or throe hour, before the time appointed for the fast event the whole town and snbarbswere completely enveloped in dast. Bnoh a dust-storm has not been witneased this season. The consequence was that few bat those directly interested in tbe boreoe to ran, and a tew vote—v— of the tort, bad the courage to fine the wasthsr. As usual them was a large number of omnflHWftfi and other vehicles ranged along tbe principal streets of the oitf randy to saeairo freigh— for the course, but I—stead of being cramsted with passengers, aa waa piper ted, few coamnraithaiy co—d gat a load. The effect of tbas storm on t—a course while the wind eonthnwd from the north —ireatenwd to be very destructive, m? it blew _ie canvas roof of the Grand Stand nearly off unroofed eosae of the booths, and blew down one, Mr. Prior's, aoatteriag the stringy bark material of which it was oompoeedinall direotk m a. This was in the early put of the day, and iong before the first event came off, Mr. Bagot at once started for town and soon brought down some men who onkldy ta-iao_d the Grand Sand, making it snog again. About 12 o'clock the wind vaieud round to the eouth-wstat, and although its fuiry was not at all abated the dnst. efujin was soon over, and the breeseblew up re—_hing from the sea. MAXDRBT KATE.

A most genial morning ushered in the new year, the second day of the Race Meeting;, and tbe lovers of the sport seemed determined to take advantage of it by pooring on to the coarse in such numbers that the tit—id Stand was literally crammed, and a fan- propor tion of the fair sex availed then—elves of the enselleat arrangements of the Stewards, who prepared covered reserved seals for their especial nee and comfort, for which they deserve great praise. There ooold not have been fewer than a coaple of thonsand persons on the coarse during the day. Sir James Fisher arrived at the Grand Stand early, and remained t—l the end of the Bardic Baca. At his departure. Sir James was heart—y cheered by the assembled multitude. The racing was all good on the secjni day, especially the Bardic fines, which was pronounced to be the finest ever run in this colony. The pace of the winning horse in this race was positively terrific, and the distenee. a mile and a-half, with four hurdles, was done in 3 mm. 15 sees. _ tbe first heat, s_d 3 mm. 20 eeca. in the second. One of the jocks, Stevens, met with an accident in the Trial Stakes, but we are glad to say that it is not Uk—y to be serious, and probably will not prevent bis being on the comse again to-day. At 1 o'clock the saddling bell rang for the first race of the day— TBE TBJIIIB. There were five entries for this race, but Minna waa scratched, consequently only four horses started.

A splendid start was effected, all going toge ther ta beautiful etyte to the firat torn, where Stevens on Bluemantle,* apparently in endeavouring to take the inside running, was too dose to the post, which caught his leg aad unhorsed him. Lady of the Lake here took a slight lead with Enfield dose op, and Cinderella keeping dose to the horse, they ran on in this order round the Stockyard turn, where Norm persuaded Enfield to mend h— pace, and he immediately took the lead away from the mare when within about 100 yards from the chair, and continued it, winning by about two lengths es_ly, Lady of the Lake second, and Cut. derella third. The lad Stevens was brought in a carriage up to the weighing-stand, when, after bung examined, it was thought by Mr. Bnmard prudent to send him in a cab accompanied by his father to Dr. Bayer's s—od——e. Second Heat.—Bluemantle being disqualified, only three horses started:—Buiield, Lady of the Lake, and Cinderella. Enfield took the lead at the start, with tbe Lady of the Lake and Cm—aidla in c—seen—r till rounding the third turn, when the Lady name up, Hunn Indulging her till he thought proper to call en the horse, and then left her at piessara tltoremab_lsr of the noe, winning by a couple of lang—a, Ladyaeeead aad dotdereUa a better third this baa— .?
