An Embarrassing Marital # Situation. TIE CASE OF LITTLE HABEL LEONARD. Juvenile Precocity as a Specula tive Medium. TRENOR W. PARK'S VICTORS. Henry Mann married bia present wile, Ellen Jose phine Mann, In November, 1870. He now charges tbai ?be baa forgotton ber marital tows aud bas been on terms of unlawful Intimacy with one Edwin Merrttt, In North Providence, It. I. Tbe accused wife oame to New York and engaged counsel to look after ber Interests In a suit winch he brought against ber for dlvorcei Purine ber visit here she says she bsd several conversations with her husband, ?lid tbey were, aa she supposed, reconciled, and they livod together severul nays us husband and wile. Tho wile was told by ber counsel lo put lu a general denial to tbe complaint, and the hnsbuud tacitly agreed to discontinue the action. She waa astonished soon niter lo hear that her nut-band had revived tbe suit and bad moved to Irame issues. A motion was made by ber yesterday, moved before Judge Donobue, to have tbe complaint made more certain and lor leavo to ?mend bor answer. Tho motion was grunted. LITTLE MAUEL LEONARD. ltfeaa already appearod In tho IIkralo that a writ of babeaa corpus tisued from tbe Supremo Court to com. pal the managers or the Sheltering Arms to produce tbe body ol little Mabel Leonard. The writ was sued oat by the child's mother, who alleged thai she was not permitted to get possession of her child or even access to ber. The matter camo beioro Juuge Donobue yes terday, when tho little girl wus produced in court. It uppears thai tbe little one, whose present age was represented as being somewhere be tween ten and thirteen years, was accustomed to play tbe part ol a boy in the play eulltlcd "Miss Mul ton." Sho Is claimed to bnvo considerable theatrical talont, which, it Is alleged, has attracted tbe attention of some speculative parties, and mat possession of ber is sought tor thin purpose. The mother insists that she is abundantly able to take care ol ber child, while tbo managers of tho Sheltering Arms, as statod by Mr. Gibson, their counsel, regard her as an unfit custodian. Mr. William F. Howe, counsel for the mother, suggested to the Court that if the child was not given to bis client a guardian should bo appointed. Tbe matter was ordered to stand over until to-morrow. THE EMMA MINE SUIT. A VEBDICT FOB THE DEFENDANTS. At balT-paat eleven o'clock this morning the jury In tbe Emma Mine suit camo into court and asked lor tbe papers In tbe caso. At a quarter put one tbey sent word to Judge Wallace, and on. being brought Into court gave a verdict lor the defendants. No mo lion was made by Judge Stoughton and the Jury was discharged. Tbo verdict was received with demon strations of applause, which, however, was speedily checked. Mr. Pars, the principal dolendant, sat In a chair almost powerless with emotion. Having recov ered himself, he shook hands with the jurors and re ceived the congratulations ol his Iriends. This ends the first stage of tbe great Emma Mine $5,000,0(10 suit, as, doubtless, tbo plaintiffs will carry tbe case lo the Vnited States Supremo Court. The trial was begun in tbe Umied States Circuit Court on the 14th of i'ocem ber, beioro judge Wallace, who came from tbe North ern District ol New York specially to try the case. The tuit was by lb* English owners ol fbe mine, to whom Park aold it, to recover the $5,000,000 paid for it, al leging that tbere waa Iraud, deceit ond misrepresent*, tlon on Hie part of Park in regard to tbe resources ol tbe mine. SUMMARY OF LAW CASES. In tbe suit growing out of tbe publication of the rival directoriea.ot Uouldlng and Trow, tbe (acta ol which have already appearod in tbe Hkrald. a motion to atrike out parilons of tho answer as irrelevant and Impertinent to the issue was argued beioro Judge Donobue, in Supreme Court, Chambers, yesterday, aud decision revorsed. In a report relating to tbo affairs of Freeman, Barenz k Co. which appeared In tho Hkrald ol Fri day last, Judge Honolulu's uamo wus given as denying a motion to vacate an order ol arrest against the par ties. This decision bad boon made snortly previous by Judge l.awrence, and all thai ihen came before Judge Donobue was tho application to cdjourn the justification ol bail. Judgo Uiatchford rendered a decision yesterday in tbosuiiof Charles H. Marshall and others, owners ol the Harvest Queen, against the steamer Adriatic, of tbe White Star lino. Tho plaintiff claimed that the Adriatic wus tbo vessel which struck tho Harvest Queen and sunk her, and he libelled her for damages lor tbe loss. The deience was thut some other steamer liad done tho damage. Judge Mlatchiord holds that the Adriatic ik the vessel which caused tho toss of ibo Harvest Queen, but that she was not at fau t. He ili* misscs tbe libel. Au order was entered this week discontinuing tbe ao tlon ol M. H. Hunting against tho Mayor. This was au action to recover $8,01)0 lor damages caused by Hood ing plaintiff's promises nt Lake Mahopac, by btriding l>sok the water of tbo lake in 18*1. A somewhat S'm- " liar unit, brought by T. K. Uunuug, was tried lust fall, and nlaiuliff therein recovered six cents. U|>ou thai trial the fact was developed that the house owned by ibe plain hi! in this suit, lor dumago to which tho pres ent action is brought, wus built in part on made land veiougiug to tbe Stulo (the bed of tbe lake), and in con. sequence tbe action is abandoned. This is tho Isatbui ouu jf .tie claims lor damacu caused by the action of tbe Commissioners ol i'ubliu Works in 1870. .DECISIONS. SUPBEMU COUBT?CHAMBERS. HyJudgo Donohue. Kent. rf.

KOBE SWILL COW 8TABLK8 VISITED ?BOTTBH FEED?BOTTINO COWS AND BOTTEN MILK. There Is a district In the back or Brooklyn, lying between Atlantic avenue on the north, tbu Boulevard on tbe south, Albany avonue on tho weat. and extend ing easterly almost as tar as Flatbusb, which la desig nated by tbo Brooklynites as "Crow Hill." A more filthy and disgusting neighborhood could not bo imagined, yet hundreds of quarts of milk are sent from tbero daily to tbo various storea In Brooklyn, to bo sold to motbera as pure milk, but which ia vile poison. The wbolo district is ranch worse than any before deacribed. The hovola are all full ot poor diseased cows that havo never known that anything but "swill" was meant to eot. Tbe Inhabitants are an amalgamation of all raoea, not excepting the negro, who, bowevo% uppeara to be tho "lord of the manor." The bouses occupied by the In habitant are, aa a rule, counterparts ot those found In Orauge and Queens counties, with bore and there a One, and would-be neat, If it were in any other neigh borhood, two or three story frame house, built by some scapegrace who baa got apparently rich by aelling ??swill" milk. A DEAD COW UK. In paaalng through Dean street, Just above Uilca avenue, alter Inspecting tbreo pest distributing estab lishments, wnere half a dozen cows were kopt in a amall shed which would pot make comfortable winter quarters lor one, and where swill Wagons, barrels and tubs were In an abundance, tho attention ol the writer waa arrested by a sickening stencb. Proceeding further with the object ol ascertaining, it pos sible, tbe derivation ol the obnoxious smell, ho suddenly stumbled upon tho carcass of a doad and putrelylng cow. Upon Ita back, dlroctly over us hips, were two largo sores, and its hoofs were all nearly rotted off trom Its bind legs. The writer was informed that tbe above cow bad been milked two hours bofore It died and ita milk mixed with the milk from the other cows and sent to tbe city tor sale. It wss very easy to seo wuat wss tho cause of death?starvation, uoot disease and bad treatment. Tno carcass lay lu trout of some shanties, with some old, tumble-down abeds, which bore an appearance of general dilapidation, and somo ir ilk cans visible lu the backyard. "PATSY" CAMPQCLL'S I'LACK Jt on the north Kid* of beau street, bet wren Utlca and Troy avenues. The house in small and lias been nowly painted, thus indicating Hint "1'alsy " !s Waking money by feeding his cows "swill." In Ihe rear is a low. Il*i rooled hovel not more than six toet in height. Tho root slopes iroin south to uorto, and there is a barrel plnoed at ?ne en<l to judiciously catch (lie rain water. Within the illiby hovel mere are now hut eight cows. He used to have lourtoen, but be was in> judicious enough to go bail for one of bis rels* lives, in a criminal suit, to tbo extent of six cow*; tho relalivo concluded tli.it this climate did not agree with hU health and departed for chums unknown, and the authorities con* eluded that they would put the six cows In the public treasury. "Patsy" lias, besides nts eight cows, two apologies for horses, with which ho carta his beer gr?iu* aud docs odd jobs In the neighborhood. Ilu la of a very lair disposition, and manes no distinction us far its Iced Is concerned between his cows aud horses. Numberless swill b.irrels wero to bo seen about the place and a tub ol Iresbly mixed swill.

" '.In Schenectady avenue several largo establishments O* ?Mwlll" were discovered. Oil the wo?t side ol the aveuuo, near Demi struct, u high board leoce attracted attention, and un investigation was begun. Approach ing ilie place the gale was found open, aud peering through ihogate a largo wagon could be seen, such as liecr grains are hauled in. I he door o( a p ak-rooled sued, with a pigeon-coop at the lop, was open, and some twenty cows could be seen. The cows wero standing clu>e together and tho lloor was actually reeking Willi foul excreta. As tho writer tvas about to enter the place aud luspeel tho conditions of ma cows a burly lello# caniu 10 the doar attired in a red shirt and blue overalls, with au old cap balanced on three bairs, possibly lour, on the l*tl side ol his extra* ordinary pugnacious head; his bull dog, or possible terrier, taco said too plainly, "Como not here;" so there 1 did not go when 1 saw a four-logged bull dog at his side. The swill-milk distributing carl mlormed ino thai Ibis was a "farm dlsrv," which 1 should not have supposed without Ihe aid of the Inlorinallun alter seeing as many swilltubs and barrels with the large grain wagon ?s I did. This place 1 was informed servea t|iino a largo route in Hrookiyn. HOTTB.N roTATllKH AS FKKII. Directly opposite the northern end of llio Catholic Orpha.i As> loin three more ??swill" lending establish* ments wer* loan I. They wero directly across tho hi reel?the officials ol Brooklyn, in imitation ol our own, have neglected to mark the names ol the street* on tho lamps, ibere are lew lamps in this vicinity, and ll is impossible to give the names of all the dirty lanes?and not twenty leel Irom the.open windows ol Ihe largo sione and elegantly built building. The whole three stood In a row, and ihe stench was sultieient to make tho writer ho>d In* h.iudkerchlof lo Ins novo while Inspect* ing Iho miserublo deal h breeding hovels. Cows were contained iu all the sheds, and various kin is ol swiil, In dilloreni shades of decomposition, was to be seen in piles neuoslli old shuds mid in tubs and barrels about tue places. I wish lo <nil particular attention lo oue low, lint roofed sued, which (lands directly opposito tho as.Wum.

I do not think it would no lor ono ol the poor bes?IS to lull in llits worse than den, lor il she did sbs would bo lu tns same plight us un icr like circumstances silo would bo in a crowd -d transportation Car, where aoitnals are packed so tight lhat they are lratnp:od lo death bolor- llicy can regain their iC'.'i when onco down. The yard ol this place is only fenced in by u low board lei.ee, which one can look over readily. In the back of tho yurl is iho *? ro-t above spoken ol. On Ihe east sido ol Ihe yard is a very low shed, divided in different compirtiucnts, which are used lo store ml.k cans, street garbage, swill. Ate. To ono ol those compartments tho writer was attracted by a smell moro- pungent than usu-tl, ami winch rivalled, il II did uol surpass. Ihe terrible odor Irom the carcass of the dead and decomposing cow In tbo hollow to the north. Ikneuththe shed alluded to I lound about Uvo or six loads ol rotten and putrctylnf( potatoes, un wblcli the maggots delighted lo roam, it appeared, from Ida number* aaen upon tba leister, log pile. These rotten potato** ere carted from grocery 110res after tliey hare become tie cayed, and oosi nothing but tho trouble of carting men. This was ibe worse lead 1 bad seen yet, aod if I had next seen a beap ot rotten llsb to be used aa food I fboulj not bare been astonished. Tbe cows conQned iu tbe above bouse make their breakfast upon these potatoes, mixed with a law beer graioa and a little sireeiKarbngt lor seasoning. It hardly appears probable that the above establishment would be ai* .lowed to exist directly opposite a charitablo institu tion where young children, yes, even infants, are taken in and brought up. The poisonous atmospnere canuot help but enter at the open windows, a? they were at lite time ot the writer's visit, ami It must be highly deleterious to tbe health ol tbe little ones, if not of the sisters themselves. In consideration ol the above facts tbe rather pertinent question might be asked by tbo friends ol tba orphans in Brooklyn, "Have they any physicians to watch tbo health and lives ol tbo little ones?" A. UOfrrOR's STORY. Several physician* were called upon In this city, and they only reiterated tho opinions of Dr. Tejada, of No. 23" Filth avenue, wbich are given below:? "Doctor 1 have called upon you to ascertain your opinion of the detrimental influences ol "swill,' or adulterated mil*, upon the bealtn of tbo growing infant." "As lar as 1 have been able to observe It is a perfect poison; causing, as ibe IIkkalu said, many ol tho various enteric diseases during the infantile period of lilo." "llavo you ever met witn any cases which you thought were directly developed by the use o( impure milk r" "Yes, I have a caae in ralnd which occurred last summer wliero all the evidence tended to show that milk was tbe cause of tbo disooffe." "What was tba case. Doctor?" "It was a ense of cholera Iniantum 1 was called to attend laBt summer. I suspected the milk wbicb tho child had been feeding upon, and consequently pro* blbited its use, substituting a good, reliable uurse In Its stead. Alter which change ttio child made a rapid recovery." "Had it been using cow's raiHtf" "Yes, but not Irotn reliable places; all that bad been used bad been purchased from stores in the neighbor* hood." "Do you see many cases snoh as thnt ?" "1 might say all physicians engaged in octivo prac tice do, especially among tho butile-fod children m this city." "Do they not occur out ol tho city?" "No. not so Irequontly. It Is very rare to have a case of cholera tniantum in the country, even among tbo bottle-led children. In tbo country pure milk can alwaya be obtained, and, ol courso, the air has some thing to do with IU" "These (acts, thou, would go to show that there is a great doal ol impure milk used in the city." "Yes, most assuredly there is. I have frequently foand it absolutely necessary to prohibit the usn of soma mtlk wblcu I have seen skid lor a pure article. A physician may order milk lor bis patients and Hn* that they aro made worso by using tho article par chased at some store and almost roluse to try to drlnlc anymore. In Huso cases I navo frequently gono to the troublo to obtuin milk which I knew to bo pure, and have invariably louud that all my palionts' dis gust for milk disappeared when a puro article was given tbem." "What should puro milk contain f" "Milk contaius, as tbe Hkkald said, all the proxi mate principles, such as water, casein, albumen, but ter, suuar and various salts and iron tbat arc essential to sustaiu I lie. Various gases are also held in solution by it." "What effect do you think beer grains would have npon the flow of milk from the cow?" "I tbintc beer grains would act as a decided lacta goguo, though 1 am not positive, having no data on winch to uaso my opinion, out I think it would; it would make a good Hold ot inquiry lor some ol our physiologists. '* "You hold, 1 prcsumo, tbat milk Is a good and nutri tious diet?" "Yes, wbon milk Is obtained puro nothing could be better either lor tbo child or adult; but when ins not pure I think, as 1 said belore, it a perfect poison, and capablo oven occasionally In the adult of producing all manner ol affections ol the digestive apparatus. Tako a child, lor instance, tbat has boon feeding upon swill milk Irom a bottle; Its sickly loox woule convince ono instantly that its food wan not healthy. These children, from having their digestive organs imnairod during tbe infantile period ol life, grow up to bn sickly men and women. 1 am satisfied tbat a great de:ii of the milk sold in ibis ally coinos Irotn just such places as tho Hkkai.k described, und It Is preposterous for one to suppose tbat healthy milk can be obtained from cows crowded luto Dlthy and putrid pens and fod upon swill." Thauking the Doctor for bis Information the writer took his leave, debating in his ralnd, after what be bad seen and board, whethor It whs best to ase any more milk or not hoforo our uselul. scientific and valuable Health Board awakos Irom Us lethargy.

Loiipon, April 14, 1877. Tho week closing to-day liaa boeu u week productive of a plentltude ol upon, no lower than fourteen raco meetings taking placo within the confined boauds or Ureut Britain and Ireland. Two-thirds of these were, however, of llttlo 11 any Importance, being attended only by local horses and spectators and productive of notn Inn bearing Id any way upon the Important events of the luture. To begin at the beginning of tho Itr.por lant fixtures it la necessary to take up the Bristol meeting, a conglomeration of stoeplecliastng, flat and hurdl* racing, which occupies the first three days of I bo woe* and altogether provides decidedly the best sport of any during the entire six days. Monday's racing was but poorly attennod, possibly owing to the threatening state or the weather; no more threatening than Is u?oal In this humid climate, but still threatening. This did not luterlero, however, with a very good day's racing taking place, consisting of throe steeplechases and a like number of hurdle races Tho Jockeyship honors of tho day wero carried ofT by an amatour rider, Ur. J. Goodwin, who, on Mr. Hubana's fiewdrop, by Wantage, won tho lladmlnster Handicap steeplecliue and supplemented this by siecriug Debonnaire, by Umpire, first past the post aa easily as ho hnd done Dewdrop, Rather peculiarly both aro out of tho sumo dain?i Tcddiugton maro nainod Titbit. The lout waf tho morn creditublo victory, as the well known professional Jockey It. I'Anson was on thai old performer I'ulin, and did not glvo up the race without a atrugglo sufllclent to overcome 4 less experienced gentleman than Mr. Good win. Tuesday was devoted to llat racing, and as the raven races had all plonty of starters there was no lack of either speculation or excitement After a prelim inary appetizer In tho sh.tpe of a weight for age Maiden .Stake, won hy Klgiva by Macaroui, camo tho FiUhardioge two-year-old p!ate of $.'iU0, with seven starters, of whom the Duko of Montroso supplied the favorito in Gauisjiger. It might have beon his name that terrified tho bookmakers into declining ta bet 2 to 1 against the "IieuK.herj" his abilities dnl not war rant the short odds, lor he couid only got a fair third to Windfall and Talkative. The winner la nn aptly named daughter of Favonius, llaron > ltotbiChll'l's Derby winner of 1871, and who wu? u son out of Zephyr, by Parmesan. The Ashdowo Walter Handicap produced a dozen start ers, ilie largost field of the day, and again did u lavorito succumb, this time to tho second choice. Cobnut was backed at u to ^ I'arumatta ut 4 to 1, and the other* who lounil friends at from & to 8 to 1. The favorite, a three-year-old, carrying 134 lbs., showed well In front lor a quarter of a mile, but ho then began lo lire and gave way to l.yceuni (4 years, l.'i.'l lbs ,) anil Paramatta |.'i years, llil lbs..) who lougiit it out to I no bitter end, [ lengths abend ot any thing else, and Paramatta slaying , ttic better won by a liitio over linlf u length. Cobnut I was ridden by Csmoron, a prominent lignt weight a low yearn since, but who having beon led astray fell from l?n position mid uniii this unie lias tailed to llnd employments It is to be hoped tli it the loston lie nas learned will iJcep uim straight in luture, lor there are lew cleverer men in the sui.dlo iLan Cameron. I here wus another welter hundicip ? little further down tho programme, tms time ol a inlie and again did u 4 to 1 chance prove the winner, Mockhom. a m roe-year-old son of Pefi Gome/, tho Si. I.eger winner ol IH09, end one ol the handsomest sires hi Kuylaud. Tm winner carried 13# lbs t and gave weight to all of his competitors except two lour ycar-olds, who earned 14 j I ba. Catella, a two-year-old bliy by an uniaabionable aire nam* Thunderer (son of Homily), made aucn an example of her three oppo neo s 10 lUe Trial 8takes, thai iroiu the ?M at whicb | ahn was entered to be aold she wan ran tip to 210 i guineas, and at that price wan secured by Sir John ; Asiley. She won by lorty lenpih? a selling race and an uutmportaut handicap filled up (he remainder of a good afternoon's sport. Wednesday witnessed a re turn to the mixed clasa ol racing, with diminlahed fields, but with decidedly lncres?td attendance. Out ol the aix rscos three wero reduced to mutcbea, in each of which 3 to X waa laid on the winner, so it took i all ol them to win to double your money. The race of the day was the BRISTOL ROYAL HTKKPI.Kelt ABB. Five came out to do duty tor their owners and strug gle lor the stakes, which w.-ro worth Mr. 3L [ James rode hia owu mare Jlelitu, and she waa backed lor the most mouey up to 2 to 1. Dainty found friend* , at 3 to 1, Andldoto at nalt a point inure. Lancet at 0 to X, atd old Palm at 7 to 1. The last named, though the leas'. Inncied, possibly on account of tin non-success on j the Monday, succeeded in boating the larortte and ? landing tbo money by three lengths Molina's rider, i Mr. SL James. had. however, the uii'fortuno to meet with an accident, but lor which lie would iu all proba bility have won. At tho very first f'suce Antidote fell i and threw a complete bomersault. Molina canto over ' as slio waa struggling toiler feet, and Mr. St. James waa struck rloleutly on the leg by either the bit or iior teeth. The result was a very doep and ugly wound, which would have stopped many a plucky rider, but Mr. St. James, though fullering great pair, kept on. Meluta is one of those animals that ro quire a good doal ol tiding, and a* Mr St. Jume? could not do justice to her, or drivo her along In hia weak ened condition, from shock and loss ol uiood. Halm caught her about ball a mile from umno and bent her out by three leugths, with Lancet a long way behind. Dainty tell as well as Antidote, CROYDON APKI\ MKKTING took place on Tuesday and Wednesday over the Wood side Course, so well known to Cockney turfites. It is usual to see immense crowds at this easily reached ro Bort, but tile heavy ratus ol the post week had reu dcred the course such u quagmire I hat only the most Inveterate patrons journeyed to Croydon. If the bill of laro hud included an international hurdle raco or a Graud National, no doubt the sodden state of the course would not hive kept the holiday-makers away, but this time | there was nothing but commontilace plating, selling ! races, and a lew sioepiocliises thrown In to vary the monotony. Mr. Charles liush'p stable was 111 good form again on the openlug day, the first event, tbo Woodslde l'lale of $,"i00, going to his credit by the suc cess ol Julien, a Ibme-var-old lillv by Macaroni out of Julius, ami. later on, Brown Holland won ttio Grand Handicap hurdle race with Si,000 addod; quite a re spectable Mfternoon'B work, considering the numerical nurauer ol animals in the book maker's stable. The main leaturc ol the day was the Surrey open steeplechase ol $100 each, *;>0 lorlolt, witn $1.01)0 addod, over three miles and a half ol country. Mont Valerien, Messager, Spw.tre and Idle tiirl comprised the field, small in number and moderate in pretensions. .Six to tour was laid on Mout Valerien, and bis backers could hardly have lelt In clover when- he fell at the first fence and threw Marsh very heavily. The latter, though severely sliukeu, was soon remounted. nnd uisplayci great Judgment In gradually gelling oh \ermt with his field ag iiu. Idle Girl meanwhile caino to grlel, and so did Spectre; so tho Issue was left io the tavorito and Mcs- ! suger, the latter ot whom led up to tho last hurdles, j where Mont Valerien collared him snd, goiug ; right awny, won by lorty lengths. Tho plucky I jockey camo In lor rouud alter round i ot cheering when ho roturnod to weigh. Had as tho going was bolh for man and beast on the 1 first day, It was a perfect paradise to that experienced on the Tuesday, lor all uight it had rained, so that j w here you wero not compelled to wado through water you hail to flounder about in two or throe inohes ol "mud. To put tbo finishing touch to tins case of the pursuit ot pleasure under difllculttes, a violent thunder ; siorin which had brokeu over London visited Croydon aud drovo everybody to shelter. This was the last straw that broke the camel's back, and, weary and ; soiklug, the majority of those who went to the course returned without any further de lay to town. Who tno winners were under such circumstances Ih u matter of littlo moment, for rucng in mud over tho horses' lotlocxs is no true criterion of form. Corsair won the big raco, the Welcomes llanJicap of $75 each, with $1,500 added, aud a two-year-old I'uganlnl filly brought the meeting to a close by winning a t-olllng plute of $.'>oo, alter which sue changed hands at the advancod price of is.) guineas. The Hngauinls, though not winning any very large stakes, aro still adding up a good total lor their sire among the two-year-olds ol tho year. WINDHOli HritlNO HKBTINO. On the Thames side course, above Windsor town, a pleasant two days' meeting was held on Thursday and yesterday, though It was at one ilmo feared that what between the fall ol Jupiter Hluvlus aud thu rise ol old Father Thames the Messrs. Frails' vent tiro would have to bo postponed. Water tlicu was In pools on the course t.clow the distance, nut still it did not Interfere with a very ploasaut outirg. which was well pairou ized by tno public. The Public Sales Slake, a new style of stake open to yearlings, disposed ol at public miction, wax won by Modosty, aud under tho condi tions was sold lor ?00 guineas, an advanco ol 200 ovor the eutered selling price. Tho sensation of tho day was ronched, however, when Cliev ronel, a two-yoar-olu, by Cathedral, out of Cogumance, won the Scurry Stakes, beating a couplo of highly tried onea in Narbo, and a filly by Scottish Chief, out ol Boulogne. Chevronel won in such hol low style that alter being started at hia entered sell ing price ol X00 sovereigns, ho was quickly run Up to 5o0 guineas, at which price he was secured by Lord Uoooberry. Antidote, who caused the accident at Croydon, won the couuiv hurdle race. On Friday the sport wan marred by ruin lulling during the entire afternoon, and, although Ihe racing waa good enough to look at, there was really notnlng ot importance dona requiriug particular nonce. TCRr rkciprocitt. At the Nowmnrkut Craven meeting, next week, the question ol turl reciprocity will come before the Jockey Club. At present the general lcoling la against any restrictive enact ineuts. THE COMING COACHING SEASON. [From the Sporting Uazatte, April 14.] An earlier and more genial spring than common makes us look forward with eager anticipation to those pleasant Journoys which have now become almost part and parcel ol a Londoner's existence during this spring and summer months; hut, alas! as far an we can at present learn from the movements that have been and are taking place In the coauiung world, tbe outlook la the least brilliant that we havo seen for some lew years. To commence with the long distance coaches, tbe two oldest roads aro vacant at present, lor Lord Bcctive and Colonel Chaplin have made no sign with regard to the Tunbrldgn Wells, and so lar wo have not heard that Mr. Freeman loteuds to retumo tbe Brighton. To these must be added tlio Oxford, which lived for Just three months, so wo may say that throe of the best roads are unoccupied. Then, again, Mr. John Kdott's death last December has rendered the Wycombe road teuanlleaa. He originally slatted the coach and stuek to It very pluckily eacli year, running a food soason. This adds another to tho list ol vaoancios and leaves teuantlea* a route tbat had becomo a atanuard one and a grout lavortto to boot. As some set-off against the coachea which will be iu abeyance wo are promised a new one to Portsmouth? The Rocket?which will coiutueuce running on April 20, leaving Hutchett's every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, at ten A. M., and arrtvlug at the Oeorge Ho. tel, Portsmouth, at 0 P. M., returning Ironi tbeuce in tho same ttmo on alternate days. In distance this conch will exceed anything yet undertaken since tho revival, and there Is no doubt that It will run through ono ol the most beautiful lines of country that has yet boeu opened up--vix., from Godalming, l.iphook, 1'e trrsllold, Ate. Mount good judges think, how aver, tint It ta loo lar and that the proprietor and K Fowiius, the professional, will soon have had enough ol tho seventy, two miles per day. Oil tliut point wu can glvo no opinion, it is proposed to do tno journey lit seven stages, allow ing hull uu Iiour lor lunch ai Godaltiniig, I be ihsi stage out ol l.ondon being all the way lo Kingston. On lilt, lint proprietors of the Guildford, Messrs. Shooibn-d and Luxmoro, lire doliglued at tbe men ol tho Ports mouth running over tlio uint> road wub themselves. Wu lancy they will teol little, if any, diminution in llio amount ol lb>'ir receipts, tlio intermediate traffic In tlie present day is very trilling, and the Portsmouth will be seeking Portsmouth aod uol (luildlord pnsieti ger.4. Another nice route, Willi good stabling, to ?> ii i id for'I, viu Kpeom, Leather head, Ac., ?ni open to Use Portsmouth, but that would, In a measure, liave Iteon treading ou the corns ol tlio Dorking. Having mentioned tne Guildford, we may alato unit u com* nienced Ita Journe/a lo Cobtiam on Slnrrn 26, and on tins day (April 14) will run the whole disi^ice to Guild, ford again. on the 30 th tbe Windsor recommences, with Cap tain Spicer, (Jolouel Ureenhall and Mr. liaiiy a? propri etors. ana tbe mi.
