THE WATERLOO CUP. The Waterloo meeting, held under the auspices of the Dunedin Jockey Club, commenced at the Forbury PJumpton Ground to-day. The club's chronic ill-luck in the way of weather was again prevalent, the morning being wet and chilly, and the attendance of course very small. The stewards are not on this occasion to be complimented on their arrangements for the comfort of visitors, for they passed two absurd rules, namely, that neither betting nor emoking should be allowed in the grand stand. What coursing would be without betting on the individual courses ic would be hard to imagine, while how the spectators are to feel the least enjoyment this cold weather when deprived of a emoke it 13 also impossible to conceive. A police constable was stationed in the stand to enforce these tyrannical regulations, and the result was a pretty general suggestion that the whole of the visitors should givo expression to their sentiments by leaving the ground en masse. The " force," however, did not carry out his instructions in a very stern manner, and in consequence a more satisfied feeling soon became prevalent. Another cause of complaint waa the fact that tho whole of the benches in the stand were found turned upside down, while in other wayß the arrangements were of a somewhat slipshod nature. The following were the results of tbe coursing up to tho time of our going to press :

Mystery (3 to 2, on) led A.M.4- by three lengths to the hare, and rever letting her opponent in, won all the way. Kincky (2 to \) was led by Rotomahana who turned, and doing nearly all the work had won in hollow fashion when the hare escaped. Harpenden (3 to 2 on) cleared away from Artillery in the run up and put in Bome good work, but Artillery then got in, and a rare give and take course ended in a narrow victory for the favorite. Effie Deans (G to 4 on) showed Aorangi the way from slips and, working cleverly, beat the latter almost pointless. Snowball (5 to 2. on) led Sefton all the way and won ' Emin Bey (5 to 4 on) beat Snowflight in the run off, and did all the early part of the work. Snowflight then got in and scored a few points, the favorite, however, having won handsomely when puss escaped. Jeannie Deans (2 to 1 on) beat Plymouth Rock easily in a good course, Ringor (2 to 1 on) ran right away from 0.C.0. after a strong hare, out of whom the favorite got only one turn before she escaped. Impostor (3 to 1 on) led Ledge* and gained a good deal the better of a long and punishing course. Dribbler (2 to 1 on) led Gordon by five lengths and scored rapidly till the nonfavorite got in, and the latter working the hare in grand style, had won by a shade when puss reached the escapes. lona (6 to 4 on) raced away from Nimrod, and getting one turn out of the hare had won easily when she escaped. Presto (2. to 1 on) led Black Bess, and had her safe pretty well all through a long cour-e.
Newton (2 to I on) drew a length away from Sea Rook, and'put in a lot of good work after a dodgy and very strong hare before Sea Rock could get in. The latter at last had his. opportunity, and, Newton standing off, he ran up a bfg score v. fiv qu ; ckly, dusting the hare about in rare style. A very long and' exciting course erided in Newton killing, but it was thought that Sea Rock had won. and general surprise was expressed when the flag went up in Newton's favor.
Rose(G to 4 on) led Lasßie and turned, but the white bitch then took possession and working the best throughout a long course won cleverly. Flora (2 to 1 on) and Mariner raced from the slips together, but the bitch fell and left Mariner with a long lead. He, however, fell also, and after getting up and running a few yards fell again heavily, and on getting on liia feet stood in a dazed condition till led away. Flora had meantime gone in chase of the hare, and, working it to the escapes, was of courso given the veVdict. It is shrewdly suspected that Mariner had been "got at." Fugue (7 to 4 on) led Blue Rock all through a good working trial and won easily. Zara (5 to 4 on) was led by Kiwi, who turned twice, but then let in the favorite, and the latter haviDg all the best of the remainder of the course, won with a bit in hand. Whisper (2 to 1 on) led Gipsy King to the hare, and had a good bit the best of a good trial. Black Pine (3 to 1 on) had the best of the early part of a long course with Ivanhoe, but the latter then put in a lot of good work, and was not disgracefully beaten when the hare got away. Meg Dodds (2 to 1 on) beat Spanker almost pointless in a short course. The Bantam ran a bye. THE WATKKLOO PURSE, of L. r >s, for SOdoßflbosten lu the unit round of the Cup. Winner, 1.25 ; runner-up, L 10; third ilog, U> ; two dognatL'2 lOj each; the dogs at VI each. A M.A. beat Kir.sky Ao ungl beat Artillery Sefton beat Snowd'mbt \ lymouth Hook beat Oo Nimrol htat Leger Dribbler beat Hhck Bess Rose beat Sea Unek Mariner beat Blue Reck Kiwi beat Gipsy King Ivanhoo beat Spanker. A.M.A. (3 to 2 on) led Kinsky, and'ran up a good score before the latter got in and ended an interesting courso with a kill. Aorangi (4 to 1 on) ran rings round Artillery, and beat him almost pointless. Sefton (2 to 1 on) led Snowfiight, aud did practically all the work, Snowfiight only getting in ou two occasions, when Sefton fell. The course ended with Snowfiight killing—about the only point she scored. Plymouth Rock (2 to 1 on) completely smothered OCO throughout a long course. Nimrod (4 to 1 on) led Ledger by fully a dozen lengths, and boat him with great ease in a short course.
Dribbler (3 to 2 on) had all the best of a short spin after a very dodgy but seemingly weak hare, and wound up with a smart kill.
Rose (2 to 1 on) ran a grand courso with Sea Rock, first one and then the other getting in and scoring rapidly. When the hare was killed tho favorite had however just WOD. Mariner (5 to 4 on) led Blue Rock by three lengths, and, keeping up this time, had a bit the best of a good give-and-take course, after which, however, he appeared to go lame. Kiwi (3 to 2 on) beat Gipsy King easily in a short course, which ended in a kill for the favorite.
Ivanhoe (3 to 1 on) ran clean away from Spanker. The day's sport was concluded by four o'clock—capital time and Mr Carver's Blipping throughout the day was simply unsurpassable.
