J ° MAESYCWMMER. A SUCCESSFUL Fox HUNT.—On Thursday the hounds of Mr. G. W. G. Thomas, of Ystradmynach House, had a successful run, which afforded" some_ capital sport, tally ho being given at Craig-y-praishaid, in the Sirhowy Valley, by a nephew of the veteran huntsman W. Davies, of Clawrplwyf, from whence Reynard led them off at a rattling pace down to Machen mountain, back to Penylan, Gellydeg Ucha, back to Machen again and Penylan, thence over the Gwerna land, crossing the turnpike and Brecon and Merthyr Railway, by the Boot gate, through the above wood, crossing the garden of Mr. Jenkins, round the factory, where the hounds seemed to gain fresh vigour, and skirting the bank of the river, up towards the Fleur-de-Lis, but near the Prince, Reynard having doubled, the dogs were at fault for a moment, but quickly recovering the scent the pace became faster, and at last was heard the welcome sound of those who were in at the death, Yoicks." Amongst those present we noticed Miss Sanderman, Mr. G. W. G. Thomas, Mr. T. Thomas, &c. Mr. Watkin Waters had a narrow escape in taking a fence, his horse fell, and he unfortunately under, but happily escaped from receiving any serious injury. Mr. G-. Thomas generously presented the pedestrian hun- ters with a sovereign, and Mr. W. Waters gave them ten shillings to drink the healths of Mr. Thomas and Mr. Waters, at the Traveller's Rest. Huntsmen Daniel Lewis and Simons were well to the fore, but the palm must be awarded to Miss Sanderman, for her undoubtedly clever equestrian skill We trust that we may be enabled to record at some future date other successful ruus, and sincerely hope that a more extended notice may be given of the next meet.
