THE CUP DAY.
The weather at Flemington yesterday was beautiful, though the sky was cloudy; but a nice breeze tempered the sultriness of the atmosphere. The Governor (Sir H. Loch), Lady Loch, Sir W. Robinson, Lord and Lady Carrington, and the Earl and Cquntess of Kintore were present. The attendance, it is thought, waa hardly up to last year, hut for all that there was an enoiir.ous crowd. The ladies' dresses on the lawn, usually gorgeouß and a wonderful sight, were for once more remarkable for quiet grace than obtrusive splendor. The racing up to the Cup was exciting enough for the most fastidious, and by four o'clock the attendance had increased till locomotion either on the stand, lawn, or in the bird cage was a matter of the greatest difficulty. All through the day Chicago was passed round as a real " good thing " for the big race, the well-known astuteness of his trainer, Richard M'Kenna, being acknowledged by all connected with turf circles. Singapore's friends came to his rescue and supported him freely. When the flag fell Carrington and Prince Consort took up the running, the former riding right round to the abattoirs, where Dunkeld, who was then second, mado a forward move and assumed the lead. Once into the straight, however. Carbiae looked all over a winner, till Bravo shot up at the carriage paddock, and, amid intense excitement, landed the 5,000 sovs by a length. His victory was received in a very half-hearted manner, as it had been hinted abroad that Bravo had experienced a bad accident to his hoof after the Caulficld Cup, which would make his starting for the Melbourne Cup highly improbable. In fact, as much as 1,000 to 1 was laid against him ; one bookmaker, named Lorry Tucker, being heavily struck at these odds. The time was only mediocre. Mclos, the favorite, held a bad position all through, but it is only fair to say that Carbine was none too well placed either. The eon of Musket covered himself with glory by his thorough game struggle under a crushing weight. Pakeha was fourth, Prince Consort fifth, Chicago sixth, and then came Carrington, followed by Dunkeld and Menotti. The following are details of the racing :

When the flag fell the colors of Carrington and Prince Consort were seen in front, Richelieu, Singapore, and Pakeha following in that order. Then came a cluster of horses, and Cardigan was last. Along the straight by the river the same two maintained tho lead, and Dunkeld made his way out of the ruck. Round by the abattoirs he ran up into second place, Benzon also coming prominontly into notice at tho same time. Sweeping toward the home turn Dunkeld led, but Melos, Chicago, and Rudolph put in their claims, Carbine and Prince Consort also making their way through tho field. Taat was tho order as the horses rounded the corner and came into the long stretch which led home. Carbine was lying next the rails, and half-way up tho straight it looked any odds on the gallant son of Musket, but there was a surprise in ulurt. Coming with a wet sp.il from the general bunch Bravo boldly challenged the chn.m-
pion, and at the name niomehb Meltos came with a desperate bid for victory. Ten st'to'o weight told its tale, and Bravo wore the champion down, passing the Judge's box a length ahead? but Carbine caved the LI,OOO which goes to the 3e>ond horse by half tviieek after & terrific struggle with the favorite, who could not quite get up. Time, 3min :<2see. O'Brien says that Prince Consort bored Carbine on to the rails, extinguishing Lis chance of winning.
