Goodwood Races, this week, have attracted all the moving fashion- ables.

On Thursday, the grand day, the Molecomb Stakes were won by Captain Williamson's Decision ; the Goodwood Cup of 300/. by the Duke of Orleans's Beggarman ; and the Duke of Richmond's Plate of 100/. by the Duke of Bedford's f. by Augustus. For the Goodwood Cup the betting was 14 to 1 against Beggarman. It was a capital race ; and when it was announced that the Duke of Orleans was the winner, there was immense cheering on the course. Yesterday, the Goodwood Cup of 1839, value 3001., was won by Lord Egiinton's Potentate; the Steward's Cup of 3001., by Mr. Bowes's Epirus.
