The Adelaido snribo "Trumpalor recently paid n visit ti> the Morpliottvillc rnurso, nnd lie (jives tlio following informution concerning thohoiws in work thoro : — Tothill, who lias ft strong string in hand for the (rood things of Molbourno, gave Snrdius and Juiuina a'gooii striding gallop of about Two mile-, both horfes acquitting lliomeaivGß well. Tho dip horeo U in paud form for tho («no, and iio h.is thickened out a dojil i>inco ho won tho Birthday Cup. John Hill sent his Dtrby colt Isonomy n sound working gallop, and all tho Morphottvillo folk* seem in lovo with this half-brother to Surdius. Tie is more on tho leg thnn liis brother, but his performances uro oncouraging. mid thsro is no ro.ixo'i why ho should not improve into aurst-clfwshoree, a»ho is agroat racing cult, with any nraount of powor nnd a splendid goer. Griffiths worked his Derby colt Dunlop, who looks as well as his trainer could wish. Tho colt's porformanuo in tho All-Aged Slakes at Flemington in March causes mo to regard his Derby chnnfio with n great deal of fin-our, and I am glad to find he ifi going on so well. Since ho bo:it Urnllannd Oartiold overamilo, Dunlop has not been feon in public, but he has cvi dently bcon doing nico work, for ho looks clean and hard, and his quartern show signs of condition. Standing about 15.3, Dunlop is a lengthy level-made colt, with great depth in tho girth, a good loin, and long poworful quartors, while Ilia legs look well tittcd for work. Hi 9 gameness was well attested in tho All-Aged Stake.', and thcio is that good honest wonr-nnd-tear lo<ik about him that, ono likoq to?oo in a horso from which groat things aio oxpooted. A conplu of the homo yearling nalos had boan held bofovo Uio doparturo of tho last English mail. At tho salo of the Yardloy stnd yenvlings, tho top price of 2,100 guineas was realised for a colt by Sterling out of Cherry Duclioss (.ind consequently an own brother to Energy and Chorry), tho noxt largest fiuma bfting given for a colt by Storling out of a King Tom mare, and an own brother to Paradox. Each of these fetched ■2,000 guineas, and tho lnttor was socured by John i'ortor, whiln Mr D. Bnird became tho purchaser of tho first-named. Tho higheot nrico realised at tho Henham House yearling salo was 1,100 guineas for a bny filly by kobcrt tho Devil out of Ursula. The tot.il amount of the pnlo was 7,175 guineas, or an average of 239 guineas. The fancy bofc of fivo hundred to four hundrel has been laid in Melbourne that " Tho Ncckoragnts beat tho Cheaters, ono-two-throe in Ilia V.X.C Derby." There arc tlirco representatives of each oflho sires rcferroi to engaged in our Dorby (fays " Vigilant,"), but tho layer of t.ho od<h has, in my opinion, along way tho better of <ho liguros, ns ho has Newutead (four to one), Duiilop (ton to one), and 1.0. U. (any odds) on hi£ side as opposed to Monto Chrieto (tons), Uralla (tens), and First (/hostor (any odds) to do battlo for tho Chatters. I read latoly in an English paper that Mr Matthew D.iwfr.n, ono of tho most successful trainers of modern times, gave it as his opinion that two better animals never trod the turf as two and threo-yoar-oltls than St. Gatien and St. Simon. Tho opinion of so excellont a judjjo carries with it a groat deal of wo'ght, and it's much to bs regretted that Mr Hammond's wonder, and St. Simon, tho hoi>-o which most English sporting authoriticn have dabbed " the horse of a century," we never likely to come rng«thor, to settle conclusively which is outitlutl to the name of champion.
