interferes with other older established races, and notwithstanding the presence
of the King ; and what is a rarer at Ascot, of the Queen, and the earnest exertions of Lord Maryborough, the Lettings have been small and the horses few. The company was, however, fair, and the weather admirable; and to all but the blacklegs the sport was pleasant enough. His Majesty, it will be seen, won the Great Park Stakes. There seems to have been some jockeying in favour of the Colonel. It is notorious that his late Majesty's horses were on occasions permitted to win, by way of encouraging their Royal master. A race gained by ten lengths looks very like an attempt to repeat the encouraging system,-most un- necessarily, we think : King William will not drop his attendance be- cause his horses are unsuccessful ; he is led to it by other motives than the desire of exhibiting the superiority of his stud. We need not say that the Royal party were received with the heartiest welcome. They visited the course both on Tuesday and Thursday. As the King was entering the course on Tuesday, a poor sailor ran up to his Majesty's carriage, soliciting assistance ; the King held his purse in his hand for some seconds, while he asked the man several questions ; after which he threw him a piece of money, hardly less to the gratification of the surrounding spectators than of the petitioner.

The smallness of the field excited considerable disappointment and spoilt the betting, for at 3 and 4 to 1 on the Colonel, business was out of the question. To call it a race would be a mockery-it was racing bur- lesqued; indeed so far did the Colonel run in before Donegani, that many con- ceived it to have been a false start, and that the others had not come away.
