By winning the St. Leger La Fleche has further demonstrated that Bhe is one of the best fillies that ever raced in England. Baron de Hirsch gaves,soogs for La Fleche as a yearling, and as a two-year-old Bbc proved successful in the four events she started in. This season La Fleche won tho One Thousand Guineas and Oaks, and ran second to Sir Hugo in the Epsom Derby, the colt jusb beabing her after a desperate struggle. On this occasion she has reversed positions with Sir Hugo. La Fleche, it is now almost unnecessary to state, is a full sistor to Memoir by Sb. Simon out of Quiver by Toxopholite. out of a mare by Young' Melbourne, out of Brown Bess by Camel. Ib will be seen by this that Quiver is a three-quarter sister to Musket. Orme was a tremendous favourite for the St. Leger, but it would appear tbab the Duke of Westminster's cold has disgraced himeelf. .
