THE GOODWOOD MEETEfG.
The English correspondent of the "Australasian" writes as follows:— Thb Stewards' Cup. value 309 sore, added to a Handicap Sweeps ake3 of 10 soys e>ch. "Vvjoners ex:ra. T.« C. (cix furlinga. 58 subs.

The Bake of Hamilton declared to win with Midlothian. . Bittng at the afcart—7 to 2 agst Cagliostro, 4 to 1 agst Lollypop, 100 to 12 agst Warrior, 10 to 1 each agst Monk and Midlothian, 20 to 1 agst Deacon, 25 to 1 each agst Eco rsais, Farnese, and Faisan, 33 to 1 agst Manoeuvre, 40 to 1 agst Rosbach. The race is soon told, as there was really nothing in it but Lollypop, who could have won in a canter, bnt ths Duke having tuclared to win with Midlothian, Custance eased his horse, and the stable companion won eas'ly—rather rough, thongh, on a wellknown backer, who had taken 6000 to 1000 about Lollypop.

It will be seen by the above that Lord Falmiuth was for the second time lucky enough to carry off this valuable stake aa last year he won it with Jannette. The race is soon told, for Archer quickly had them all in trouble, and won very easily. The winner is in the Oaks and Leger of next year, but not in the Derby ; and Lord Falmouth seems to have discontinued entering his fillie* for the latter event. On the Wednesday the only event reeding comment was The Goodwood Stakes (Handicap) of 25 soys. each, 15ft, and only 51 if de lared, with j 20 added; winners extra.

Nt a quarter of j a mile from borne ; in fact, in the ca-ds of a le s experienced jjekey the race would have nn loabtedly been bt; bat Fotdham. al ho *gH he can ride at 7at 31b (as seen above), seems to have lost nothing in head or hands, the borse was very much knocked abont; bnt seeing he bad plenty of time, the famous jockey handled him most gent'y, and
riving him fairly time to get into his stride \ [gain before increasing his pace, he came 1 yith him about a hundred yards from home, < md beat Fred Archer and Hampton by a ! -mgth. Time, 4min. 53secs. Value of stakes, £705. The Levant Stakes went to Rayon dOr, and in the half-brother to Cha- ; mant Count Lagrange had an undoubted »rod oiie The "surprise of the day, howaver, was the Sussex Stakes, for which odds jf &m 4 to Xto 7 to 1 were lain on Insuon'y opponent was M. Le Delatre'a Clocher ; the l»tter, in receipt of s!b, won easily, The result, however, did not much affect the market status of Count Lagrange'a horse in the Leger, as he was repTffeffas short of work. -.■-.•»■.— ■..■ ■■■ ~ Thursday was the famous Cap q*yj and Goodwood as brilliant as ever, the weather a3 tine as it could well be, and the whole thing delightfulrif I except-the very small field for tbe big event. Kine were colored on the card, but of these six were nltdmattly absentees, the most impirtant ono being who was struck out at one o'clock on the of the race. The race itself is soon described. The three runners were Pageant, Lady Golightly, and Kincsem, the celebrated Hungarian mare, who has been in the conntiy for the last month, in training for this event. . §he has, in different parts of ihe- dpntmebir%on noUess thaia thirty-five consecutive times, and haS never yet known defeat, a thing"beyond a doubt unparalleled in the history of racing. She was little fancied to day, however, as it was argued she had met nothing of-inuch quality. 1 Stall some of the Newmarket division were rather sweet, one good judge telling mc he had never seen a mare go- through so- good and "uninterrupted' a preparation, - . , | The mc* 3 was rnn at a slow pace, which I was not increased much till three-quarters of a mi/« from bCSie, v* ..~ ~- :- - [ mare was beaten, and it looked a thousand to one on Pageant, the Hungarian mare being beaten and hard—shamefully so, in fact, and Madden muafc. surely have been apprenticed to a butcher. He has, I believe,-ridden the mare in nearly all her races, and the only wonder to mc is that there ia anything of-?her left, as she; was from shpuljler tb^ul:;'■ however he kept at it, and, catching' Pageant' a hundred yards from home, won in a canter.
