From full cabled accounts of the race in various Sydney papers we cull the following additional particulars:—

The Canadians were so confident of O’Connor being the victor that on the Monday they cabled Llo,ooo to London to be placed on O’Connor. This large sum was duly invested, and it had the effect of making the Canadian the favorite in the betting before the race started. The odds before the race were 5 to 4 on O’Connor. The race for the first mile or so was the grandest known, and the time to Hammersmith Bridge is the best on record. Doubtless, hitting a piece of floating wood with his scull and consequently missing his stroke when off the creek, somewhat dazed O’Connor, and allowed Searle to overtake him there. Searle thinks that O’Connor is the fastest man he ever met, while O’Connor states that Searle is a phenomenon. Off Alexander’s boat • house O’Connor caught a bad “crab.” The race for the first two miles was the fastest yet rowed on the Thames. The time for the first mile was 4min S3sec, and to Hammersmith suspension bridge (one mile and three-quarters) Bmin 38sec, These times are unequalled, O’Connor’s time for the entire race was 23min 2aeo, or 33sec behind the winner. The following is a comparative table of the times in the Beach-Gaudaur race and the Searle-O’Connor race Beach- SearleOaudaur. O'Connor, min. sec, min. soa. Mile 4 51 4 63 Hammersmith Bridge .. 8 68 8 88 Barnes’s Bridge .. .. 18 57 19 3 Finish 22 20 22 42

Silvermark’s racing career is presumably at an end, for he is to be submitted to auction after the horse parade on Thursday next.

Tartar and Lady Kintore have been scratched for the Melbourne Cup. Mr W. Warbick, late of the Native and Auckland football teams, intends to start business in Brisbane. Mr Hyton, who was secretary of the Native team, also intends to settle down in the Queensland capital. The following will take part in the three: mile handicap race at the Palace Rink on Wednesday night: —S. Jones, five-mile champion; G.
