In order that the public may fully

trotted, it Is only necessary to say that

tihe race r ere connnenced at au hour
no atethait vg. jnipuHsible to. finish,
unless some one horse could take three
consecutive heats. Such a course de
prives any horse of all the ai vantage

At Fleetwood the race ivaa postponed
iW'da rli nesir,"
allrfwerverft, that-everyother horse,
but Alice West was tired out, and she
atle to go a 'lieaf in- lietter time than
she had .yet, 'shown; thereby proving
that she was able to win the race there
with great case. This she did, how
ever, the next Monday, (two days af
ter.) Gen. Wad Hampton says the
"Returning Boards are, he believes, a
new device of the devil." Thet.e
Judges at Fleetwood and Hartford
were regular Returning Boards, a de
vice of Jwkeys to win, whether they
are successful or not. This "new de
vice of the devil," Returning Boards,
even mieeessful in cheating a whole
nation, will have their day in every
thing, until they rule everywhere.
t Hartford the same tactics were
pursued; the race was commenced
late, and when the heats were broken
and it became certain that Alice West
was oiitla-sting all the other horses,
the time lietwecn heats was prolonged.
Rule 33 says the time letween heats
kikUI be twenty-five (2o) minutes. In
the aljove race nearer forty were al
lowed. The friends of Alice West, af
ter waiting thirty -six minutes, re
minded the judges that "time was
out:" They admitted the fact, but
showed no energy in calling the horses
upi' In this way fully time enough
was wasted to have liave trotted an
other, heat, which would have lieen
conclusive for Alice Wst. In proof
of which it is only necessary to call
attention to the time of the herts;
they ran from 2-J till the fifth
heat. Alice West came home almost
in a jog in 2:."4, the balance, as nt
Fleetwood, beiiitf "cooked." Nothing
could defeat her or save them but a
po-tonemcnr, and it was so ordered.

RUSSIAN IXJSS AT PLEVNA,
London, S'pt. 21. A correspond
ent at Gorny Studden estimates that
the Kussians, with the re-enforcements
received since the battle lefore
Plevna, must nu'.nlx?r nearly 50,(XM).
The casualities on the 11th and 12th
amount to over ( jwr cent.
A correspondent who was present at
the battle of Plevna, telegraphing
from P.ucharest, Sept. 17, says: "The
Husso-ltoumaniau army has abandon

the attempt against Plevna, find fallen
back into the jositions occupied before
the commencement of the lombard
ment. Field artillery remains still in
some of the liositions of lombardnient.
It is announced that a third renewal
is intended, on the arrival of the Im
perial guard, in a fortnight. I have
great doubt whether another attempt
will be made, and very much stronger
doubt whether, if made, it can sue

that, alter seeing not a few battles,
stand n.-'surod. The strategy of Uith
ierhais, is equally bad, but, as regard
iiolh major ami minor tactics the
Turks are simply immeasurably supe
rior. They are better armed than the
Kussians, loth in great and small
arms. They have engineers who can
desire admirable defensive petitions,
Tiie Hussian engineers seem inenpahl
of repairing a hole in a breach. The
Turks seem as well provisioned as the
liussiaiis, and are hinshed with sue
cess. The llussians are depressed bv
failure after failure. Nor is this all
that impairs the Russian soidicr'
dash. That it is btcoming impaired
my reluctant personal olervation- of
the Avar can testify. 1 here is no brav
er man than the Russian soldier, but
brave soldier caimot continually face
more than the fair chances of war.
The Russian is called on to face these,
and dangers in addition which appeal
with mnniteiy greater intensity ol
horror to his imagination. He knows
that if he but receives a bullet . in the
ankle joint when he is in front of an
unsuccessful attack, the chance- arc
