TUR papers up to December a-lth, arrived by tho Inst mull antoni several items of interest connected with tho close of tia racing season, us well as other matters which our readers wlli look through with ploasuro.

4 Tho turf statistics for tho tensón of 1S73, giving winning sires and horses, numbers of runners and ot races, glvo a good insight into tho state of racing in tho old conn. ry. From those we gather Hint thc number ot* races run annunlly in England was on tho increase until IMO, in which it readied its maximum (2238), and that it has since been decreasing till 1872, when 1023 was the total, this being raised to 1051 last scasoui In thc samownv tho number of llorac.« that ran was 25(30 in 1870, reduced to 2070 in 1S73. Blair Atliol is thc seuson's king of sires, with thirty-four winuors and Lli>,lS2to his credit, his dead sire, Stockwell, being next, with ten win- ners of L13050, and ho fs followed closely liv Scottish Chief, by lord of tho Isles (brother tó Lord of tho Hills) who is credited with ton winnersof Lia.-ïOfi. After theso nono lins readied LlO.OOf); but Lord Clifden is in tho next ton hundreds, willi twenty winners and L0291. 12ie,ht and seven thoumnd arc blanks, but there arc no fewer than live with over six thousand to their credit, headed hy Adven- turer LI5812, whois followed by Macaroni LOiïOl ; King Tom, Thunderbolt, and Skirmisher, each with something over L83O0. Saeohnrometcr has LMM; ; Monarque, LßJOS; nud then wo como to half a do/.en of four thousand und odd, from V/ding Melbourne L470.'i to Oxford L1270. There ure then len with botweon three und four thousand to their names, and ninny more over L1000; and ol'the lot we glvo u table of the seventeen sires that huve over L-IOOO on tho winning side, out ol' whloh the following facts may be extracted to show the value of racing families to transmit, their excellences through several generations. In the following table will be found three sons of Pocahontas, ,namely the full brothers, Rataplán and Btockwell by tho 'Daron, and I heir half brother, King Tom, by Harkaway; whilo Stockwell has his three sonn, Blair Athol, St. Albans, and Thunderbolt, so that of tho seventeen highest sires of the season, six are of ono family ; representing no fewer than 88 winners of 314 races, and IR>3,/>4 I : «nd tho winnings ol' t hese six sires, com- pared with those of tho other eleven, aro ns L!>3,544 to L7I.89I, or an average of L8021 for each of thc six, us aaainst
