We are compelled to hold over a quantity of English racing notes.
We learn from an English paper that the Bend Or difficulty is at an end. The stewards of the Jockey Club have come to the unanimous conclusion that the chestnut colt Bend Or, which pawed the judge first for the Darby of 1880, is by Doncast6r— Rouge Rose, and they therefore overruled the objection to the Dufce of Westminster's receiving the stakes mada by Messrs Brewer and Blanton, the jcint owners of Robert the Devil, the horse who was secopd in the Derby. There cannot bo any question that this conclusion is a most § alisfaottry one a3 far as its results go, but the public would have been far more content than it now is if the evidence upon which Lord Calthorpe, Mr Lowtfcer, and Mr W. Gi Craven decided had been published.
