Trotting- Match at Swansea. There was quite a large meeting of local "sports" on the Mumbles Road at an earlv hour on Tuesday morning to witness a trott- ing match between Mr. Tom Brown's "Sleepy" and Mr. Beth Haycock's "Dora," of Port Tal- bot. Both horses have a good reputation, and are considered the best animals in South Wales for their particular distance. The course was a mile straight for a stake of 50 guineas, and the run was from this side of Blackpill Bridge on the Mumbles Road, and within the borough, to the Brynmill Stream. Although there were officers of the law repre- senting the County present, they had no juris- diction under the circumstances, and the race was run through without interruption. "Sleepy" conceded the Port Talbot horse fifty yards'" start, Mr. Brown riding his own animal, and a Mr. Andrews, of Manchester. striding "Dora." A good start was made, the horsese keeping up a good pace. At half distance "Sleepy" drew up to her opponent. and they went together for some time. It was a tight race from the Sketty-road up to the stream, but "Dora" tdtimately won by a few yards.
