TWO GOOD DAYS WITH SIR WATKIN S HOUNDS. The meet on Saturday was. Iscoyd Park, near Whit- church, the seat of P. W. Godsal, Esq., one of the most staunch fox preservers. The worthy Wonet was not out being present at the Merionethshire election. Drew the Neutral Covert, where there were a brace of foxes.'

On Monday last Aldersey was the fixture. This is a favourite meet, and always draws a large field. There were many ladies present, well mounted, who rather astonished some of the more nervous gentlemen by the ,1 jf1 they rode to hounds.

It was some five minutes before he could be got away again, although he was quite spent. Instead of yielding and dying in cover, he made one more bold stroke for life. Breaking on the Shocklach side he ran across a large grass field, where he lay down, and the hounds passed over him but Payne, discovering the hounds had overrun their fox, blew his horn, got the hounds back, and shortly gave the final "woo-hoop." During this fine run great numbers came to- f7le ,7, i^Pund. yas very heavy and severely tested ⢠me mettle of the noblest steeds. A large number of the members of the Cheshire hunt were present, and seemed bent on shewing the followers of Sir Watkin's hounds how the thing should be done by leading the run; but never were men more deceived, as the members of the latter gallantly held their own all through the day. Among those who went well we may especially mention the names of E. Peel, Esq., of Brynypvs, and W. Thelwell, Swvlh °% <Â¥r }V~ W°otton, Crewe Hall, bore y onour of tile chase. Sir Watkin, in awarding mm the brush, remarked that there were many there who only rode hounds, but Mr Wootton was a staunch pre- server of foxes, and to^ his vigilance and attention they owed many a fine run, including the one just ended. A more deserved compliment was never paid to any follower- of the chase, as he is a thoroughly true British sportsman. --Chester Chronicle. CARNARVONSHIRE OOTTRSTNYl Afttpyrnvn Messrs H.
