STEEPLE CIlACE.-On the 19th inst. two dash- ing races for a valuable silver cup and a snuff box, with sweepstakes added, took place near Gloucester, between the officers of the 8th Hussars. The dis- tance was three miles across the country, and weight 12 stone each. The line afforded some ditlicult leaps, calculated to try horse and rider. For the cup five horses started, and it was cleverly won by Major Hankey. The box was also won by the Major in the second race, three horses starting. One horse was staked and died soon after, and some of the riders in taking desperate leaps, experienced severe falls. A large concourse of persons assem- bled to witness the novel races. MOST EXTRAORDINARY RUN WITH THE PANTY- KKNDY Fox-H(IUNDS.-Oll the 14th instant, the Pantykendy Hounds drew till eleven o'clock without finding, when they threw off at Penyrallt, Trawscoed woodland immediately struck upon the drag, when a gallant dog fox broke cover, and led them over a fine open country to the Forge cover but the dogs pressed him so hard before he gained the large cover, that he was obliged to turn short to the right over Vole Tnrnp and Blaenigau, and crossing the turnpike- road near Conwil, was met by some people going to the fair, who gave the hounds a momentary check that enabled him to make his ground to Nantycastell woods, and from thence to Pena'ltavar, and over Travelpwll to Criguan Mountaiu, when the hounds again obliged him to turn about for Clynperveth a id Cvvmgiest-gorse cover, where he was tally'd in fitie style, and made back for Ciliiere, and crossed the river for his old kennel but the hounds soon made him quit his favourite fastness, and after making a circuit of a few miles in the attempt of eluding his pursuers, but being foiled, he once more boldly faccd the country for Sychbant and Penyrhiwlas woods, where he was ob'iged to quit, and make the best of his way for Esgolgoch, Nantycastell, Brynwith, Nant- yrolehon, and Peiiceire, and was run into, in fiue style, on Bryn Fold, aft; r a chase of at least 35 miles and (ive hours'hard hunting. He measured 4 feet 7} inches from the nose to the tip of the brush. All Eugli-h fox-hunter, who was out, declared that he never met with so severe a run in Eiglaud.-Car- marthen Journal.
