Monmouth Races. Stewards-The Earl of Annesley; Sir George Walker, bart., and Reginald Herbert, Esq. Judge and CWk of the Scales—Mr. T. Marshall. Starter—Mr. Starling, jun. These annual races opened on Thursday last. On the previous evening, the flow of visitors to the town was great; the hotels and inns being soon filled. The Duke of Beaufort, with a large company, arrived at Troy House late in the evening. The Cup-the great prize—given by His Grace, resem- bles a massive vase, in silver, with coverlid most ela- borately chased with a suitable inscription, standing about a foot high upon a block of ebony; and is, without exception, the most handsome piece of plate ever yet contested for at this meeting. The start for the first race was appointed for two o'clock, at which hour the company on the course and in the grand stand was more numerous than we haye witnessed on many preceding occasions; but the number of horses that shewed for each event, was not so numerous as might have been expected from the large entries. The arrangements were complete in every particular; entitling the Committee and especially the worthy Secretary, Henry Dyke, Esq.' to the greatest praise, Below are the results of the day's running :— THE COUNTY MEMBERS' PLATE A handicap ofjB30, given by O.
