and tbe sorrel burse Cochran of Rousevilie,
(or a purse of $100 a side, best two to three
beats, was won by tbe Rousevilie bo'se.'
Tbe first beat was woo by Lady Thomp

ahead. On' ibis heat tbe Rousevilie borse
hsd fwojtinty the start.
Oo tbe second beat tbe RotiseviHa borse
came to tbe pole two lengths (bead. Tbe

been In favor of Lady Thompson, but for
the fact of tbe rider of tbe Rousevilie borse
either losing or throwing bis bat off about
the centre of tbe track, the hat striking tbe
Lady Thompson on tbe bead and frighten
ing bar Into losing ground.
Or tbe third beat Lady Thompson broke
and tbe rider was unable to held her to tbe

W have already orad dbotlon, lay th
Sleubenvtlla Herald, of' the discovery o!ol
at IYoadste,' this coubry, snd glean tbefol
lowing fadt from at gentleman from tbat
place, who' presented' us with a sample o'
tbe oil. The Iron company there, lor th
purpo of securing a better supply oleoal
have been engaged In making two drjfta or
eotriea through a targe bill, and through
the diamond vein of coal. The drift ate
considerable dialaoo apart, and in pssslug
tbrongh, a Nam of heavy oil of a fine qual
ity bai bean started, tnd runt across saoh ol
tbe driftey eompelllbg a tsmportry suspen
sion of tb work. Tba oil stranrwts clean
ed out, and'Ore-clay set In lb drevice, but
without Hopping it entirely, it removes
considerably tbe danger from explosions, of
which thsra bava been tsveral lately, mak
ing It uosaf lor workmen. It it the Intent
tlon ol tb company to force tba eotrlet
cVar through the hill, and thereby secure
proper ventilation, when an Investigation
will be mad ol th ow discovery. Tbl
Is the only oil dlscovsred In tb Immediate
