DISTRICT INTELLIGENCE. Monmouth Races. Stewards His Grace the Duke of Beaufort, the Earl of Uxbridge, the Hon. "Wyndam Quin, and John Hamilton, Esq.; Judge and Clerk of the Scales-Mr. T. Marshall; Starter-Mr. Starling, junr. These races commenced on Thursday, and, judging from the success which attended this day's sport, combined with the gradual though marked improvement that has characterised the meeting for the past two or three years, we may safely augur that it is about to resume its tormer position as a racing event of no mean importance, indeed, such cannot fail to be the case so long as the Duke of Beaufort continues to extend to it the support and in- fluence he has latterly done, and so long as the arrange- ments of the committee are entrusted to the able hands of Mr. Henry Dyke, as hon. sec. The ground was in capital order, and the weather proved exceedingly fine for the running—a natural result of the latter being that the course was crowded with spectators, including a large proportion of the elite of this and neigh- bouring counties; indeed, it must have been many years since so many stylish equipages have graced Chippenham mead, there being no less than some half-dozen four-in- hands" driven on to the ground, besides a proportionate number of less imposing equipages of all descriptions. Although, of course, it would be impossible to give anything approaching a complete list, we append the names of those of the most distinguished visitors we noticed:—His Grace the Duke of Beaufort, and party ^comprising: the Earl of Coventry, Colonel Poulett Somerset, M.P., Colonel Edward Somerset, Captain Little, Mr. George Payne, Mr. C.
