LOCAL- THE COLRSING MATCH.—The deciding course between Mr. Job Jones's dog Leamington and Mr. Tustin's dog Lexicon was run on Wednesday, when the judge decided in favour of the latter dog 1 he match had been made some ten days previously, and 011 Tuesday week the first course was run and won by Lexicon. Several courses, as well as that upon which the judge pronounced, were run on the first day of the match, upon which it was not found pos- sible to decide. Darkness coming on, it was agreed to postpone the deciding courses to a future day, and that day was Wednesday last. The weather was line, and the ground in excellent order, but a long time elapsed before a hare could be started. At leiigth a puss appeared about a mile, from the gate, which put the mettle of those two really splendid dogs to the utmost test. After one of the severest and longest courses (lasting eight minutes) we ever beheld, the dugs lost the hare, and she certainly deserved to escape. At the start Leamington shot with the velocity of a cannon ball from the slips, and up the side of the hill had the hare to himself. He succeeded in turning her twice before Lexicon worked up. but as the hare began to descend the hill, the latter gave his rival the go by. and flew after the game at a speed that might puzzle Blair Athol. The hare taking the road, two tremendous jumps occurred at which both dogs were seen in the air almost ai the same moment. Again the hare took the hill and then Leamington showed his superior strengtl bv giving Lexicon the go, and kept the lead unti the hare once again turned for the valley, when thE latter cleg in his turn gave Leamington the go by As the hare did not take to the hill again, Mr Tustin's dog kept the advantage he had gained ir the descent. It must have been clear to every observer that the fate of the match depended on the course the hare took, as up-hill Leamington was a> far superior to Lexicon as the latter was to the for. mer down-hill. Indeed even now we should hesitate to hazard on opinion as to which is the better dog- the points made, as stated by the judge, being foi Leamington 6, and for Lexioon 8. At the conclusior I ',r the course it was found that both dogs were ter. ribly injured about the legs by striking fences ani gates which occurred.
