The Ashburton hounds .met at Mr E. G. Wright's, Windermere, on Saturday, and were followed by a field of about thirty. After partaking of Mr Wright's hospitably, most thoroughly appreciated needless to say, a move was made to~a paddock about a quarter .of a milb from the house. Hero a.- hare was very quickly found, the 'hounds running for about twenty-five minutes' very fast over' a stiffly fencer! country. In a ploughed paddock, the hare was unaccountably lost.^ Another'haro was very soon found,"how" ever, which, after a smart run of about twenty minutes, was killed in a planta-" tion, the hounds working admirably. After a short interval for "refreshments, another hare was found in front of the house, which took the pack at a merry pace across the railway line, back again to the Chatmoss estate, when scent began to fail, and -somo slow hunting ensued, the hare being eventually lost, after a run oli. about thirty minutes. The pack were then taken back to; Windermere, and the field returned home, greatly delighted with their day's sport; t .Among those out were Miss Iflees and-rMrs Merewether, the latter on Pickwick; a four-in-hand filled with the fair sex ; and the' Misses" Grigg, in a beautifully appointed dogcart. .Among the gentlemen were prominent in the, field—Messrs J. C. N. j Grigg, acting master; ,Mr W. B. Denshire on Jester; Messrs Wright, Buckley, H. McLean, Curtis,.C. Moore, Jameson, Dixon, Saunders,,and others.
