PIGEON EAGES IN BELGIUM. The increasing amount of attention devoted to the pigeon races in Belgium may be inferred from the com- parison of the relative number of races flown, and value of the prizes given, during the four months of June, July, August, and September in 1867 and in 1868. During the summer of 1867 the number of matches flown by the several societies was 463; the prizes awarded were 7,432 the number of birds taking part in the races being nearly 60,000. During the past year 675 races have been flown, 11,478 prizes awarded, and upwards of 90,000 pigeons have been engaged in the competitions. Taking the expenses incurred for each bird at the low estimate of three francs, or 2s. 6d. each, the total amount incurred for the races of 1868 is pwards of XII,C,00.-Fild.
