Suffica it to say that the betting waa very heavy, and notwithstanding Archer being up, 6to 4 was laid on the Devil. The race was a great sm prise, for last year's Derby winner had the foot of his opponent all the way, and won very easily indeed; the distance, a mile and a- half, not far enough for Eobert, I think. But more next mail oh the subject. . Ut Ji ASCOT, June 14th, 16th, 16th. THE PRINCE OP WALES STAKE 9, Of 1000 soys, added to a sweepstake of 60 soys each, for three-year-olds.
