lÎEFOHi- proceeding to chronicle the closing- (lay's sport at Rantin ick, we have to apologise for, and coirect, ntl error which occurs in oin teport of the second day's vumimg. We allude to a tianspo sititm in i ho placing of the hoises for the City Plate ; Ben li->lt being inadvertently represented as second luirse, when it should have been Gi ass hopper, «s the description ol'the race itself sheivs. The excitement and bustle incidental tu attendit!« the meeting each day, mid having also to put in an appearance at the Jockey Club Banquet on Friday night, lo say nothing of us being oin " public-ilion dai"-are the only rateiiuntinr circumstances that ivu can plead for having suf- fered this w'siake to pa>s. Having said thus lunch, ive feel assured our readers will readilt excuse the blunder to which we have referred.
With re'emiee to the thiid day's sportv, we can only say that while the same ¿lonou» «eather prevailed/ that had marked the preceding two days, the attendance was greatly in excess ol either. The anticipated contest for the Queen's Pinte, coupled with the oppoitunity afforded by elie half-holiday had, no doubt, it ^rt-at deni to do viitb the augmented muster, but whether this ita-, the case or not, the attendance was really, to tis-» the language of the play nibs, "immense." It was, moreover, in the fullest sen-,e of the word, respectable; Corin addition to all the usual patrons of sport, it included numbers who perh.ip-» never befoie visited a race-course, or enteicil so fully into the enjoyment of the great national amuse- ment. The grand stand was u perfect picture to look upon, ciowded a-, it was with yoir.h, bejuty,
and fashion-tier iltei tier of the richest silk.-* ititi sttins, decorating the stiuctiirc, and sliming it once ho« consummate is the tiste of the l.tdic-, and how endles-, tie nnett, of fabrics to be lound at Giless, launer ami I'unters, Chisholm s and oth i gieat emnoriuin-t ol fashion m the iii) Hie Go\einor nnd suite, t tth i large pvrty, wert pie«ent in the % c ie"*d hov, and i e ilsi noticed the lion irable President ol the Council, Mr Wentvtoith (long life tu In i) tit o or three ol the Mnnsteis, and v tuons mein

I ut ite do not pul pose, botte ver, to give an account of all the little doings ti at caine ui der oin obsiitation \nd s» premising iliac fun anti __fro'ic, jrmd hiiinoiii and ¡.ood filling pi evaded, ive at onto hark back to our mote imnieib uo duty, that of cliinnicliiig the day's i icing. 1 ho spnit itsill vt as good upon lite whole, but tie fed bound io state that there «as a dei! ol giuimlmg nuent the running in some of the eients. Theefloit ol Voliinteci in the Randwick Plate was a fett openly pionotmced to be a sham, and rum ins thai there iias something crooked with lcgmd to Erin-go hragb's i mining, weie freely circulated in anything but whispers. Vi hellier the oncle was itorked or not, it is of course impossihbli to say. \t anj' late there ivas nothing that the stewards could get hold ol ; or they would at onie hive interfered. I he bungle winch occuned in the Champagne Stakes, by which tu > animals were shut out if the race, was .-motin r occurrenie that occasioned considerable IIKSIIIS f.ictlo I, espicially to those uho hail tikcuihe long odds about II lining three 01 tnore wiiuieis. Hie fault of tue thing rested, however, not with the starter, but ti ith the persons in chatge of the two animals that weie omitted. 'I he bell ran.; as usual, .md all the pi eliniin mes tv Inch precede a race had been concluded ; so ti at the delay on the part of Haidee and Mi Rouse's colt cannot he charged on the staitei , notnuhstandng it having been insinuated that Mr Maityn felt peckish, anil .tasín a burry to fall foul of O Biien's roast duck-. md gieen pea» in the luncheon room. Before pt oceeding to record the day's races, ne would take this opportunity of eulorsing the meed of praise awarded by our daily contemporary the II menai to Mr Stubbs and the police authorities for the admirable mannet in ii huh the ground was kepi and accidents on the load obviated. J heir duty was a difficult one, hut it was performed mtli much consideration and firmness. VVc subjoin

Volunteer was well backed for thii race, and great discontent was caused ut the way in tvlu'eh lie ran, many in fact declar- ing in the yaiil that the horse tviw " roped." Volunteer and Paulin led from the t-tnrt, Alfred holding the third placo, mid Volunteer last, four or fivo lenuths behind everything. At the back William Tell went forward, na did also Troubadour, and the ttv-o were making gooil run- ning when the latter made a clean bolt, and nt once destroyed his chance. Apuronohiiig the Derby corner, little Ada made a splendid rush, passed Alfred like a
shot, ancl before reaching Hie turn at the rails had got to tim gb til* of William Toll, who waa now leading at ti killing pace, the other favourite, Volunteer, still be- hind. Xhu tiuHel now begun for the win, Toll und Ada leading past tim stand close together, four lengths in ad-
vance of the Voliintwr. The two first mentioned
animals were both at their best, mid a most ex citing i-aeu to the post terminated in favour of Tell by three purls of n length; Volunteer finishing third j" Time, ii min. C4 seconds. On entering the yard to weigh, Holmes and Bishop (who rode Ada) severally bore murks of blood on their faces, mid it transpired (hat a regular set-to willi whips had occurred us the} rounded the turn.
