I T-WF. EARL, OF 8TAMF0&D AND HIS TRAINEE. In the Court of Chancery, last week, before Vice- Chancellor Wood, was heard the Earl of Stamford and Warrington v. Dawson, a bill filed by the earl against Mr. J. Dawson, late trainer of his horses. The de- fendant: had been plaintiff's horse trainer at £ 500 a J year salary from 1859 to 1863. Plaintiff's racing establishment was carried on at Chesterfield-house, Newmarket, but in 1859 he removed it to Heath-house, Newmarket, and afterwards directed defendant to hire additional stabling. Defendant accordingly took a lease of a, house, called Shakespeare-house, and stables at Wocidditton, near Heath-house, and when asked whether his name or plaintiff's should be put in the lease he said, It does not signify perhaps you h.ad better put mine in." Accordingly his name was in- serted. The rent was X30 a year for seven years. Defendant also, by pla-ntifi's directions, took a lease of ground at Cbippenham Gallop at X30 a year for training plaintiff's race horses. Plaintiff expended considerable sums ia repairing Shakespeare-house, and defendant; charged him for the rent and taxes. In November, 1863, plaintiff refused to pay defendaut £586 lis. 5d., claimed as a balance due, until he in- vestigated defendant's accounts, and it was agreed to refer all matters in dispute to Admiral Rous. After- wards defendant refused to proceed with the arbi- tration, and he recently brought an action in the Court of Exchequer against plaintiff to recover the £ 586 lis. 5d. balance which he claimed as lessee of Sh akeapeare-house and Chippenham Gallop. This bill was filed ti!J restrain said action, and defendant held such leases simply as plaintiff's trustee. The case was only part heard when the court rose.
