Tristan has not yet retired from the lurf, his name appearing among the nominations for several of this season's events.
H.R.IL tho Princq of Waloa has nominated Tho Scot for tho Livuipoul G rand National, the Softon Steeplechase, and the Grand International Stocplochaso Handicap at Sandown Park Second Spring meeting. Hid Highness has also nominated Lord Alington'a ffloheiuiniss for tho Stockbridgo Gup. Tho appearance haa been made of the Spring
handicap nutrias, and (ha fluctuations in tho nuuiboiH of the Jimnmatfons fur tho la.st six yean will bo seen at a 'jlanco iv tho annexed tablo :—
Four previous winners of the Liverpool Grand National are included in this year's nomination. Regal was successful as far back as IS7O, and is now 13 years old ; Liberator was to thu foro in IS7'J ; while .Seaman and Xncdono svero the rospeetivo winuor.i in 1882 and 1353.
Bell's Lifo states that T. Brown's training lican.^o has bjen renau'ed, and that Charles Archer has received permission to exercise hia horses on tho Heath for two months to enable
Mr hung, who left England for Australia last November, to bo communicated with, and other arrangements made.
A contradiction is given to tho rumourH which havo been circulated to tho effect that Foi'dliain has rotirod. On the contrary, it is strated that he will coutinuo his connection with Mr Rothschild's stable during tho forth] coming eoa3on.
Tho Americau-brod Gerald, who has lately been put into training, does not appear to lmvo mended his manners, and is still described as a " mad horse."
St. Simon, Tristan, St. Blaise, Corrie Roy, Thobais, and Ossian are included iv tho entry for the Ascot Cup. Tho Duko of Hamilton, in addition to naming three, has ono sealed up nomination, while tho Duko of Boanfort has three, Mr it, Jardino two, and Mr Ohapliu one.
It is said that when the licenses wero recently granted for jockeys, several of the most popular horsemen received the most emphatic and sternest caution from the stewards of the Jockey Club concerning the betting question, which the Turf legislative body nas taken up with Buch determination as a pernicious evil which must be stamped out.
Truth reiterates the statement that Lord Faimouth doos not intend ontirely to give up breeding and racing, and that the sales will not be without ruserve. Of lato years, it says, the stud has become inconveniently largo, and has attained dimensions which Lord Falinouth never contemplated when he commenced racing. Tho story that ha is going to abandon tho Turf because he has more than a large farms thrown on his hands is a fiction. Lord Faimouth has a few vacant farms on tho Tregothnan Estate, but they are not large ones, and his plans havo been in no way influenced by any such considerations. Matthew Dawson has no intention, either, of giving up hia profession and abandoning Heath House, though he, too, will no doubt be glad to curtail tho extent of his operations. However, Messrs Tattersall announce their instructions to sell during, or bafore, tho First Spring meetiug at Nowmarket, the .whole of the horses in training tho property of Viscount Falmouth. A further notice will shortly a'ppuar anuouueiug tho sale iv tha summer of the whole of the Mereworth stud, consisting of tho brood mares and foals, yearlings, and stallions. This should set at rest any doubt that might havo existed as to tha intention of his Lordship.
It is saia that the Emperor of Russia intends to commence racing on a rather extensive scale -next season, aud that he will also send some horses to compete in England. Tha director of the Imperial studs, General Ilavaisky, has been in England and France recently, and purchased iv the latter country a dozen thoroughbreds, which havo been sent to Russia.
Mf Gorlott, in tha Sporting Times, has published a list of tha leading races won by Lord Falmouth in the last thirteen years. It is an extraordinary record :— The Derby twice, with Kingcraft find Silvio. The Two Thcu;an;t Guineas three times, with Atlantic, G'horiber!', aud dalliurd. The One Thousand Guineas four times, with Hurricane, St Cecilia, Spinawiy, and Wheel of Fortune.

The C.carwell Strikes nine timei in flftoan years— viz., Atlantic, Quoei.'d Jle.-ssnger, Repentance c It, Facneso, Silvio, Jannette, Bal Gal, Dutch Oven, and Harvester; and on three other occasions Lord Falmouth was second. Maidment, who some years back had a big reputation at home, and who rode Kisber, Cremorne, and other cracks in their engagements, is contemplating a trip to the Colonies, where he is prepared to accopt an engagement either as jockey or trainer. Another English jockey ha 9 arrived-in' Australia by tho John Elder. This is William Meauy, who during his career has ridden many winners in the Old Country, one of thorn being Holywood, who won the Liverpool Cup in 1575, Maidment being second, on Vanderdecken. Since then he has grown, and during tho past two years he has been riding over a country in America. As he can ride 83t lOib, he should be useful over hurdles or a steeplechase course. The Prince and Princoss of Wales aro about to visit Lord Aliugton at Critchell next week. It is generally understood that the Brince has a share in moat of the-horses that run in the colours of the Dorsetshire nobleman.
