UGUST has been, in a great measure, only a supplement in dulness to

the rest of the Turf season. There have been meetings in plenty and stakes in plenty, but “soul is wanting there," and the roughs and the welshers seem to grow in number and strength. Grand Stand enclosures will soon have to be heightened.

Mr. Brayley's stable has been in force, and the Voltigeurs have had an unusual amount of pickings ; but no new St. Leger candidates have cast their shadows before. The performance of Pretender at Stockton has shaken public faith, and caused many to vow that he is the "worst horse that ever won the Derby.” The Drummer, Martyrdom, Ryshworth, and Pero Gomez have all a fair amount of clients, and if twelve to fourteen reach the St. Leger post we shall be thankful. Yorkshire's dream of Brennug is over. The Doncaster Corporation are making great preparations with their new Stand ; but the list will never be what it ought to be until they guarantee £2,400 plus the Queen's Plate. At that season of the year, and with such large sales to occupy the mornings, six races on three days and seven on the other are ample; but they should have £100 apiece. The Thames has been more lively than the Turf, and the dislike of the Newcastle scullers to it will be more inveterate than ever, since Reoforth lost his four-oar race through a gig fouling him.

. The Harvard men have also done us the unspeakable advantage of getting rid of the steamers at a race, and “Freshwater Billy" and the rest of the gallant tars who command them may chew their quids and curse the Thames Conservancy in vain. The Surrey Club have been in better form as the cricket season draws to a close ; but everywhere the game has been suffering from the same chronic disease of three figure innings; and the runs made this year must be nearly half as many again as they were in '68.

Agricultural shows have been the staple of our month. We know very little of the Local Committee's jumping pranks at Manchester. They authorised Mr. Parrington to issue press tickets,

and when they were presented they repudiated them. The fact was they were making so many four-shilling payments out of people, who went into the Grand Stand not so much to see twelve horses jump the three fences, but to say that they had sat so many yards off Royalty in the flesh, or where Royalty had sat the day before, that they grudged all free space.

It is said that the stands produced £3,400, and saved the committee from the necessity of calling on the guarantors for the second 50 per cent. All this bye-work is quite out of place, and the implement-makers, more especially, who pay the Royal Agricultural Society heavily for space, feel that it is unjust to have their visitors drawn away after this fashion. The prizes of the Hound Show seem to have been pretty nearly divided between Lord Kesteven and the Brocklesby Kennel, but very few people went to see it. Mr. Barnard was one of the judges, and Captain Skipworth and Mr. Wood, of Market Overton, the others—so we are told. The committee wore assured from the first that it was a mistake, as Lincoln and Beverley were both going to have hound shows; but they persisted, and gave away a deal of money to precious little purpose. Lancashire is not a fox-hunting country, and, except in the very wild parts down Lancaster way, there is not a fox in it. The hare is its specialty, and the greyhound its delight.

Most of the stock-owners left Manchester on Wednesday, and we saw very few of them at the Highland Society's Show at Edinburgh the next week. It was a great let-down to come to the hunter sires and hunters. There was not much to covet, save a model of a coverhack, which was second in a harness class. One of the Shetland ponies was about the smallest we have seen, and a boy of equal dimensions was always sitting, booted and spurred, in the manger, ready to ride him out on the smallest provocation. There was a furze fence, and the hunters were tried over it before the decisions were given; but the people's hearts were with the Clydesdales ; and the daily procession round the field, headed by one of the Society's gillies with a flag, was very pleasant to see, especially when it was the turn for the mares. The scene when the magnates of the Society were grouped in front of the secretary's hut, to be photographed, was remarkable. The Lord Provost and bailies had got into the group as supporters of the society pro tem., and very important they looked. Christopher North knew them well when he wrote

“And down the plane stanes

Like a provost he would go;"

and, in fact, a bailie dressed for a public occasion (more especially with weepers on his wrists for a funeral) is something for importance quite out of the way. The crowd did not seem to think much of them, and spoke of them quite familiarly as “ Jacky" and "Billy," and those unfortunates were quite at a disadvantage, struggling to keep their features dignified for posterily. Mr. McCombie, M.P., with his long whito beard, was just behind the Marquis of Tweeddale, and at his shoulder stood Mr. John Gibson, whom coursing fields know well. On the left was the Duke of Buccleuch, with his hand resting on his umbrella as he stood, and fresh from his labours as attending member to the judges
