The undermentioned horses may be entered and their riders chosen by ballot: Casparini, Ofcago Central, Home Ruler, Blatant Tongue, Salvationist, Log Roller, Stonewaller, etc., etc. Characteristic jockey costume to be insisted upon, and the stakes divided amongst indigent harbor boards.—l am, etc., PICSKIN. Dunedin, July 27. P.S.—The Forbury would be an excellent course for a concluding Otngo free fight.
