The Prince of Wales, accompanied by the Duchess of Cambridge, the Grand Duchess of Mecklenberg-Stre-litz, and the Duke of Cambridge, arrived from Windsor shortly before the commencement of racing with all the time honoured Ascot ceremonial. Lord Colville, and the Eoyal Huntsman, the men in green, and the men in scarlet, were greeted with warm and respectful loyalty by the immense throng. One Cup-day always exceeds another, or is supposed to do, and, like the 10,000 additional lamps at old Vauxhall, more people, they tell, us, come each year. Certainly, the display on the course in " carriage company " was more brilliant than we ever remembered. Whether there were more people on the stand and in the enclosure is known best to Superintendent Walker and the money-takers, but we should say that the attendance was about the average one. When the course was cleared for the Cup race, the great assemblage was in its fullest and most animated phase. Lady Elizabeth, with the 51b penalty, made such an exhibition of her field, including one or two candidates for Derby honours next year, in the New Stakes, that the backers of Eabican, a colt from the French stable, who has already found his way into Derby books, must have been rather disconcerted. The easy victory of Hermit in the St. James's Palace Stakes brought a most enjoyable afternoon to a close. The Gold Cup, value 300 soys., added to a subscription of 20 soys each ; second to receive 50 soys; weight for age, with certain allowances. To start at the Cup post, and once round (about two miles and a-half). 33 subs. ifarquis of Hastings' Lecturer, by Algebra 4 yrs, Bstlolb (Fordham) 1 Mr Graham's Eegalia, 5 yrs, 9st (Heartfield) 2 Baron Rothschild's Hippia, 3 yrs, 7st 21b (Peake) 3 The following also ran *—Mr B. E. Dunbar's Tormentor, Lord Glasgow's c, by Young Melbourne, dam by Teddington—Maid of Masham, Marquis of Hastings's John Davis, Count Lagrange's Montgoubert, Duke of Newcastle's Opoponax, Mr Chaplin's Eama, and Duke of Newcastle's Julius. Betting: 5 to 2 agst Hippia, 11 to 4 agst Lecturer, 5 to 1 agst Rama, 100 to 15 agst Eegalia, and 10 to 1 agst Opoponax. The Eace.—After being saddled, the competitors were paraded in the royal enclosure, Rama leading, folfowed by Lecturer, Hippia being the last. They went on to the course in this order, and, after taking their canters, were conducted to the starting post, and without any delay the flag was lowered to an excellent start, John Davis, in the centre of the course, making the running with a clear lead of Opoponax, Eama and Hippia, side by side, being slightly in advance of Tormentor, Julius, and Lecturer, this trio being about three lengths in front of the Maid of Masham colt, Eegalia, and Montgoubert. In this order they passed the Stand, and proceeded to the hotel turn, where John Davis, with the object of serving his stable companion Lecturer, considerably improved the pace, and descended the hill folly four
lengths in advance of Opoponax, Eama ; and Hippia being about two lengths ; in his rear, Julius heading the others, the last pair being: Lord Glasgow's colt and Montgoubert, No change worth recording occurred in their positions until reaching the Swinley bottom, where Eama and Opoponax in company decreased the distance between them and John Davis, they being now a length only in the rear of the son of Yoltigeur, while Hippia and Tormentor, together, were clear of Lecturer, Regalia, and Montgoubert, and the Maid of Masham colt at this point being a long way in the rear. At the three-quarters of a mile post Rama and Hippia headed John Davis, the last named, a few strides further on, dropping into the rear, his mission having been fulfilled. Lecturer was now going on third, Opoponax fourth, and Eegalia next, but as they approached the turn for home Lecturer and Eegalia closed with the leading pair. When fairly in the straight Eama was lying next the rails, slightly in the rear of Hippia on the left, the Baron's mare being also in advance of Lecturer and Eegalia, but the four were so nearly abreast that each seemed to possess an equal chance !of success. Before reaching the disi tance Eama compounded, and the race was left to the three placed, but in a few strides further Eegalia took up the running, with Hippia on her whip hand, and the race was looked upon as a match between the pair. At the commencement of tbe enclosure Hippia made a determined effort, but dying away, Eegalia appeared to have the race in hand. Suddenly, however, Fordham, next the rails, called upon Lecturer, and the game little Colsterdale appeared at the neck of Eegalia, and taling tier Willi tlw greatest ease opposite the Eoyal Stand, won easily by a length and a-half amid loud and prolonged cheering. Hippia was third, beaten a couple of lengths, and about the same distance in advance of Julius. Kama cantered in fifth, many length in rear of the Duke of Newcastle's colt, the Maid of Masham colt was sixth, and Montgoubert seventh. Opoponax, Tormentor, and John Davis pulled up on the post in close company. The New Stakes of 10 soys each, with 100 added, for 2-yr-olds ; colts, Bst lOlbs, and fillies, Bst 71b ; winners extra. T.Y.C. 66 subs. Won by Marquis of Hastings' Lady Elizabeth, by Trumpeter —Miss Bowzer, Bst 121b. (inc. 51b ex.) ; Chelsea, Bst 101b, second; and King Alfred, Bst 101b, third. 9 others also ran.

Marquis of Hastings's Lectxirer, by Colsterdale—Algebra, _ yrs, 105t... (Fordham) 1 Mr Chaplin's Kama, 4 yrs, lOst 51b (including 51b extra) ... ... (Custance) 2 Baron Bothschild's Tourmalin, 4 yrs, lOst (J. Daley) 3 The following also ran : —Lord Bateman's Moulsey, Mr Bowes's Klarinska, Lord Glasgow's c, by Young Melbourne, dam by Teddington—Maid of Masham, Marquis of Hastings's John Davis, Count Lagrange's Auguste, Mr H. Saville's Sealskin, and Mr Watt's Strathconan. The Marquis of Hastings declared to win with Lecturer. Betting: 5t04 on Lecturer, 7to 1 agst Moulsey, 10 to 1 agst Klarinska, 12 to 1 agst Strathconan, 100 to 7 agst Eama, and 20 to 1 each agst Auguste and Tourmalin. The Eace.—The competitors having been paraded for the inspection of the Prince and others in the royal enclosure, the canters were taken. Before reaching the starting-post, Klarinska j was somewhat fractious, but with little delay a good start was effected. When fairly settled in their stride, John Davis, acting in concert with his stable companion the favourite, took up the running, closely followed by the Young Melbourne colt, clear of whom came Klarinska in advance of Lecturer, Auguste, and Eama, Moulsey and Strathconan bringing up the rear. In this order they passed the Stand, but on rounding the Hotel turn, John Davis, as in the race for the Cup, improved the pace, and increased his lead to half-a-dozen lengths, while Aldcroft, still forcing Lord Glasgow's colt, was nearly twice that distance in advance of Lecturer, Auguste, Klarinska, and Eama, while at intervals of half-a-dozen lengths followed Tourmalin, Sealskin, Moulsey, and Strathconan. In the Swindleybottom Lecturer and Lord Glasgow's colt were close up with John Davis, the trio being succeeded by Klarinska, Auguste, and Eama, Tourmalin being at least twenty lengths in advance of the others, who were toiling on in the rear. At the three-quarter of a mile post Klarinska joined the rear division, and was shortly afterwards followed by the Young Melbourne colt, and simultaneously with this change Lecturer, Auguste, Eama, and Tourmalin closed with John Davis, who immediately resigned the leadership to Lecturer, who came on with a lead into the straight. At the distance Auguste gave way, and Eama and Tourmalin were left to do battle with the favourite, but although both struggled gamely to the finish it was all to no purpose, as Lecturer drew away in the last fifty yards, and won in a canter by two lengths. Tourmalin, close up with Eama, was a good third, and Sealskin cantered in fourth a long way off. All the others pulled up before reaching the post, the absolute last being Klarinska.
