As soon as the flag fell distance took The Preacher to tho front, and followed by Sulieman, Oapuohin, Gang Forward, and Highland Liddie in a cluster, whipped in by Kaiser, made the ruutiiug as herd as ever he could go, and going round the turu into the course at tho Old Milo-Post, he was leading 10 or 15 lengths, which were diminished gradually, and on entering the straight his "pnoneuts were on his heels. When fairly round the turu Gang Forward took the lead, hut was joined in the next few strides ny Kasier, and the race was reduced to a match between the pair. At the centre ot the stand-»ang Forward had the beat of it, bur. swerving right acroHs the course KtiBicr managed to get up again, and won hy a short head. Thus the rubber game leaves them equal. In the Two Thousand, Gang forward just did Kaiser: in the Deriiv they ran a dea t heat and now, tho third time of asking, Kaiser gain» the day. It wus generally reported that Mr, Bavile would have sent his horse to Paris to run for tho Grand Prize on Sunday, as hu was not afraid to try conclusions again at Doncaster, but lie Wept his horse ut home solely because he feared that the French, who ure such a susceptible peoplo, might be hurt if they were again defeated by a Kaiser. All Honour is due then to Mr. Suvile, who doubtless gave up a rich prize rather ttian injure tho feelings of our gallant neigh
.. Nine ran for tho Asout Brakes, and again Mr. Bavlle ond Maidment were viotonom, this time with Uhlan, who cut down his field, and won with ridiculous ease by a dozen lengths at least; Houghton wits second on sufl'.iranoe, us Vunder deckeu could have scoured that unwisheil-for place. We were treated to a view of Prince Charlie, who looks a grander horse than ever, and who left Blenheim and three others as if they were standing stil 1 lu the Queen's Btand Plate. Hannah was made a very great favour te for the Gold Vase, but she could not get out of the way of Thorn, who pulled over the otherB all the way, and when let go won veryoleverly by a neck from the tavoue.ce ; Struan was third, and Cecilia, Hutch Skater, Bugler, and Lilian also ran. Lemnos repeated his Winchester . victory in the Sixteenth Biennial Btnkes, wherein he beat Spectator, Couronne de Fer, and peven more, and Cremornfl walked over tor the Nineteenth Triennial Stakes. Kaiseroommenced th« operations on Wed nesday by beating His Grace, Klug George, and John In a canter in one ot the numerous Biennials ; lu to 1 wa* the price paid, and it was never in doubt; and a rare day for bac kers was inaugurated. Miss Toto won the Fernhill Stakes, Spectator again being unlucky enough to be xecoud Colonel was third, mid four others started. Mario .stuart won the Coronation Stakes in a cantor ; Wild M j rt ly, who WAS second
to her in the Oaks, again obtaining that pluce, the only other runner being Silver liing, who appears tn ti.iv« inst every blt of form. She was nearly top ot the tree last year, and now she appears unable tn neut a donkey.

All got off well but the Bhootan who plashed old Hnrry nt the post, and was lett behiud ; they rmi in a line for 200 yds, when the Theobalda colt, Alava, Lord Gough, Moorlands, Heine, and Winslow, with Oxford Mixture in tho centre, carried their colours n ost conspicuously in the van. At the road Oxford Mixture tonk up the running, nnd held thc command for a quarter of a milo, when Iteii.c ran up to her, nnd after racing together for a few strides the French filly drew away and seemed to he going to walk In, when in the twinkle ot an eye, down came Fordham on Winslow, and timing his one final rush to tho very half second, just got up on the pose, and won by a short nectc. The tall was a very long one, the favourite und the ono that was loft being the last two. The value of the stake is reckoned to L1.02U. Sugarcane cantered away from Beaconfield and four more in,the next race, a Triennial Stakes; Gang Forward beat Highland Laddie and Andred for th« Ascot Derby ; and The
Preacher landed the Visitors' Plate.
If it he possible, a greater crowd than ever attended on the Cup day ; the trains from Paddington und Waterloo vim aa fastas they were filled, mid by 12 o'clock, un hour und n hull' before the "first moe, the stands were noditlvely crammed.
Tho number of couohes was nearly treble what had ever been nt tho Royal, or uny other meeting before, and attracted a largo crowd to the entrance gut« to criticise tho couchnian sliip, which was superlatively good in many, hut. 1 regret to pay that several of tho younger waggoners appeared in want of another hand occasionally. However, there- were no accidents tn record, although the gate-posts mid the wheel« of some of the coaches became nearer acquaintances than was requisite, and one young guardsman who triedro bring his team In rather too fast wus pitched off his box, tint waa for tunately not hurt, u d he remounted Iiis perch and dr"ve on again.
Kaclng began with the Bt, .Turnes' Palnco Stakes, which Gang Forward hud no trouble in adding to his other victories. Sugarcane scored win munt or three ut the meeting In a Biennial for two and three years old. Drummond wo-i tho Windsor Handicap after a good ruco with Winslow and Alava, seven othcij running.
KANGAROO HUNTING IN THE NORTH.
