The second coursing meeting of the season took place yesterday over Mr W. H. Rule's farm, Pendarves. The weather was favorable, but there was not a large attendance. Hares were scarce but strong, and most of the courses were long and closely contested, a very noticeable feature being the defeats of dogs whose strong point is speed by those having better staying powers. Darkness coining on while the deciding course of the Puppy Stake was still to run, the owners of the two left m agreed to divide. Mr R. Duncan was an efficient judge.
