I N-. GNOTES. THE LLAGlBBY HOUNDS. The second lucet of the season near Usk of the tiati- gibby Hounds took place at New Baru oil Friday. Sport appeared under the most favourable ..up¡ces. the scent lying well, aud the hounds being ill capital trim. The meet was not graced with the presence of many ladies, but there were a large number of horsemen audtootmell present, amongst whom were Mr. John Lawrence (the master), 1\1r. David Lawrence, Mr. Hopton Williams, Colonel Morgan, and Mr. E. Waddiiigton. A start was made punctually at the hour fixed, the houuds being thrown iiibo New Barn Wood, but the cover proved a blank. Several- other covers were tried, but Key 1111 ni was not found till the Park was reached, when he stole away into Coedyuace Wood. The hounds at this point picked up the eeent, and were in toll working order., The fox broke cover and ran into the top of Llancayo Graig, making down through the wood and out into the bottom .running the open to near the weir in the River Usk. Keeping ahead, lie entered Coedyriugwood cover, but. not staying long, continued his course in the open to Taylor's Wood, where a slight check took place, the houudsrunuing him to this point at full cry. On the scent being picked up it was found he had r\ri,¡¡.iu taken the open iu the direction of Chain Bride, erocsing the turnpike- road, into several small brakes down to the banks oi the River Usk, where he crossed, aiid ran into Graig*y-Harris Wood. The hoa.ids followed and hunted him remark- ably well through a number of covers, and finally ran him to ground after all excellent bit of sport of over two hours. The earth being a stony one, no attempt was made to extricate the varmint. Another fox was after- wards moved, and was hunted till dusk, when the pack was called off. Everyone seemed to enjoy the day's sport, which was most lively throughout. THE LLANWONNO HOUNDS. The and Llanwonuo pack of fox- hounds met at T'onyrefall on Thursday. Proceeding to draw the Garfchgraban covers, the dogs soon showed signs that a fox was in the vicinity, and very soon Lie was on foot and broke cover, taking a south-westerly direction, towards and r. Blaudy Jenkins's covers, He was hotly pressed for some time, but the scent did not prove good, and the hounds being very small and weedy, the run was very indifferent for some time, although the little dogs stuck fairly well to the line. Towards the afternoon. however. the scent im- proved, and after some pretty circling from Ynys-y- Mardy oil the east to Bryn iia-G-wviiloii on the west, Llan. harran Oil the south, and Mynydd Llambad on the north, the fox afforded about tour hours' i-tiri, and went to earth at Cwmargoed-Edwiu. In spite of the master's injunc- tion, some of the most constant supporters of the Llau- wonno pack turned bacic after the field aud the hounds had left, and set to work to extricate the fox, and between them, mitli the aid of terriers, spades, and picks, the poor animal was killed.
