Tonaas, who won the Lincolnshire Handicap thiß season, was backed to win £80,000 Che ring as a natural consequence being very heavily hit. The London oporfceman pays: — " For tho moment wo were burprised when we heard to-day that the market had been Hufficiontly btrongr fco admit ot a, horse being banked t;o win from £70,0C0 to £SO,OOO for the Lincolnshire Handicap ; but when one comes to analyse tho matter, such a ptatoment is not only easy of belief, but oven comes within boundß rather than otherwiso, tvnd by way of inotance wa may romark that in ona hand alone upwards of £5000 wa3 invested iv favour of the luckless Fulmen." i
, R^gal, who won the Grand National in 1876, and ran on the flat as a two year old as long ago aa 187J3, finished his racing career in the race for tho Grand National this year, as ■he' broke' down when about half the' distance had been covered. Royal's has been a long and chequered career, and there are few animals who face the starter in their thirteenth year.

Jas. K. Kaeno, 1 an ex-Califomian stnckbroker, and of late year 3ft loader in Wall 'street, Now York, failed mi May 1.- Ho. how** over, reiusert-all offers of assißtance, and it is believed will eventually pay in full. 1 Kenne, it will bo reiaembarod, was on the English turf to some extent, where one of his horse*, Foxhall, did Rome good running. Ilia stables now am almost entirely.
The Spirit of the Times says of Maggie 8.8., darn of Ivoquois, that she was brud 'by Mr James B. Clay, jun., of Kentucky, and her naino given out of poßitiva romance, ■ It was no pee'rafc' that at tho timo Mr Clay wm tho accepted wooer for' tho hsmd of Misi Maggie B. Beck, a daughter of United Skates Senator Jame.i Back, ot Kentucky. Tho lady was one of the most boaufciful and accomplished of that hi'illnnb coteiie of women who shono o,fc the guy Federal capital. Bat tho waters of tran lovo did not run smoothly. It is peldom they do. Fur some reason Senator Beck did not look kindly upon tho match; it was broken, and the lady ultimately married ono of the Ooroorans, of Wajhinßton. Kut < the iryjtte Boon replaced ths orango blossom, and the tall grass has waved over the spot where the young bride i 8 buried. Mr Olay, while he smarted from the paops of despised love, did nothing rash, but, in tho true cavalier spirit, he named his filly Maggie 8.8., after the girl whom he had lovod and lost, and as such she bacame noted on tho turf, and in fehe 1 s^ud has attained a distinction surpassing that of any of her contemoorai'ies.
