The other races of this great national meeting - a meeting which may be called the lifting ot'
the ennuin for the dramatical season - are of no interest for our Colonial Turfites. But as wo have, even so manj- thousands of miles nway from thc theatre of events, some sporting men who lay on the Derby, Oaks, aud Leger, we give all inlbrnntion we can procure that can satisfy their curiositj- or guide their judgment.- Edt.
