illustrated by a young artist, Mr. E. Law, who promises to take a high rank in his profession. The paper is faultless, the type good, and the binding extremely neat. To those then who wish to read the prowess of a sportsman, who is second to none, whose descriptions are truly graphic, whose spirit-stirring adventures and “hair-breadth escapes” are modestly told, we strongly recommend a perusal of this work, which contains all that can captivate the fancy or instruct the mind, and which will take rank amongst the best standard books of

the day.

“There he sat, and, as I thought, expounding the law and the propheta, until on drawing a little nearer, I found he was only expatiating on the merits of a brown horse." -BRACEBRIDGE HALL,

us at once.

WAY BILL: -News of the Month-Jim Jacques—The Waterloo Cup-A

Few Words on the Cracks. THE E past month has had at least a sensation week in it. First, there

was Paul Walmsley defendant in an action, which for impudence surpassed even the Barry and " Tatersall's” ones, which the Sporting Life defended. Not only had old Paul been robbed of his prophecies and his keys; but he had been sneered at into the bargain as an "exuberant prophet.” However, he wou, and he reminded his readers that he had given them the tip to back him as far back as November, and let us trust he may even get his costs. Turfites think the horse far too sacred a thing to eat him, and not many of them were found at the Langham Hotel banquet. Others may be differently constituted; but the very thought of horse-oil with the salmon would have finished

We remember a speculator once chartering a four-horse coach to carry his friends to look at a Cornish mine. The axletree broke, and the coachman remarked that it was as rotten as a Cornish mine," which was such bad hearing, that the party all fought shy, and the host had the losses to himself. So the word farci" creeping into the bill of fare was the real handwriting on the wall, warning consumers to have nothing to do with horse-fesh. The hounds and cats and heps can use up what there is. The horses are liable to a number of nasty diseases, to which cows and sheep are not, and as their first mission is to do harness or saddle duty, and not to be eaten, their turn for being eaten would not come till they were old and valueless, and had in too many instances fallen into the hands of a lot of unscrupulous creatures, who wouldn't care killing & parish for a few half-crowns. There is no such chance with beasts and sheep. They are at the height of their price when they are ready for the butcher, A horse must be useless, and calculated by shillings rather than pounds, when he is at the stage where his owner thinks he may turn him off to be eaten.

The Duke of Beaufort's and Lord Jersey's retirements from very different causes are rather troublesome facts for the beginning of a new season; but some fresh men will be out, and in a year or two, blue hoops and the buff and purple stripes will be in their places again, when the iron furnaces are once more in blow, and the usurer's nose has been brought in its turn to the grindstone. The late Duke of Beaufort was the most unlucky of men on the turf-whatever he bought, hired, or borrowed was either beaten, or ran out of the course or fell down ; whereas the son races under quite a different star, and made £21,000 or so on the turf last year. His Grace's retirement does not say much for the goodness of his two year olds.

Those who remember the Cambridge crew last year, will recall the red head in the middle of the boat, which stood out in such marked contrast to the rest. It was poor Gordon's ; and although (as is the way with Cantabs) he seems to have been coy as to saying whether or not he would row, he had passed his word to the Captain on the point
