[Br Eleotbio Telegraph.—CopraiaHr.] [Per Press Association.] MELBOURNE, November 2. The V.R.C. spring meeting was opened to-day with a beautiful midsummer day. A seison of unexampled nro-perity served to make this year's attendance on Derby day something phenomenal, that is of Victorians, but eomb'ned with this fact visitors to Melbourne from other colonies were never so numerous, on Wednesday last over 200 sleep : ng berths being secured at Sydney a'one before noon for that evening's express. The attendance was enormous, and among tho:o present were Lord Cwrngtou and the Earl and Countesi of K-'ntore. The racing throu"boutwas gimerallygood,but Dunkeld s chance in the Derby was completely missed bv the wretched stirt. Even then he finished fifth, r-ter losing fifty yards. The event of the day was the magnificent finish between Abercorn, Melos, and Cavb-ne r.\ the Melbourne Stakes. Melos's ruth at the fnishwr;* quifo phenomenal, and h'-show in the Melbourne Cup must be second to none. Singapore ran a regu'ar cur ?n the Hotham Handicap, for which he was heavily backed. The following are the results : MAIDEN PWTE. cf 300 sore ; second hose CO sov • tn;rd?osovs. Onomilc. MrA.Cbi nside'ab o Linbu'n, 3yiß .. (Pawcr) 1 Mr J. O.

Antteus and S'necure cut out the pace five len"ths in advance of Carbine shortly aft:r the'flag fell, with the favori'.e lying sixth. Hal. way up the straight Abercorn made his effort, and a tremendous finish between he and Carbine was made more excitmg by Melos coming with a great rush, and although he got past Carbine suffered defeat by Abercorn by half a head, Carbine being half a neck away third. The race was run in the phenomenal time of 2min being 45sec faster than last year, when Australian Peer won by half a length from the Melbourne Cup winner Mentor.

Owing to the fractiousness of Rudolph there were several false and when the flag did fall the horses were sent away to a wretched start, both Dunkeld and Prince Consort being left standing at the poat. Rudolph, in the interest of his stable companion, at once rushed to the front and led the field at a merry pace, but by the turn by the river Tinlander ran up to the leader, wilh Loyal Stone lying third and Dunkeld tailing off. Dreadnought, who bad been lying rixth, now made a forward movement, and held a pronvnent position as tie field approached the home turn. Hre Richelieu made a bid for victory, and about a furlong f-.om homo took up the runn ; ng, and looKed all over a winner until a hundred yards from the winnijg-post, wl-en Hales brought along the favorite and the race was never in doubt, Dreadnaught winning rather eaiily by a length and a-quarler. the same distance separating second and third. Prince Consort was fourth, Dunke'd fifth, and Tinlander sixth. Time, 2mh 41sec.

The splend'd running of Melos in the Melbourne Stake 3 yc .terday caused him Ij be heavily backed for the Melbourne Cup last and at one time he shortened '.o 100 to"30. Singapore, who cut up badly m the Hotham Handicap, was driven back, and fourd few admirers. Power, who rode Richelieu in the Derby, expresses every confidence that the horse will run well forward in the Cup, and the party who follow Knight of the Garter appear sanguine about their chance.
