VICTORIA JOCKEY CLUB RACE MEETING.

{From the Argiu.)

THIRD DAY," THURSDAY, FEBRUARY. 18. .

Yesterday afforded by far tbo boat sport ns yet durln the present meeting. The weather wasoooler, and tb attendance considerable. <

Alice Hawthorne seems onoe more destined to mah an impression upon the moro exoitablo portion of th community. That she never was in better order i manifest. Nothing could bo finer than the style i which sha won the groat handicap ; so much so, thc those who, n short time since, were blowing hot and col upon her, aro now beginning to be onoe moro loud i their admiration. Some,indeed,among the reilly know ing ones, never lost their oonfidonco in the gallant gre] and, from nil that appears, they have had no reason t regret the faot.

iflatcatcher, it will be seen, bas boen scratched thrbug every race, greatly to tho chagrin of some, and perhap tho justifiable astonishment of mare. It is singular tim tho wern er of such verdant laurels Bhoulil be willing t let them . fade, or bo forgotten so,soon.. The turf, how over, it would apponr, bas its mysteries.

Hose of May is giving a good account oMierself, raoin second for the handicap, and wiuning the Consolatio
