The great Fool Iface.—No sporting event, since the great Barclay match, has engrossed o mueh altenlioll as that which commenced on Friday night and Saturday morning, on Sunbury Common, between Rainer, the Kent- ish mall, and Cross, Captain Barclay's groom, the latter of whom had been six weeks in traininif, under the immediate direction of the Captain, according to his own system, and was in perfect condition, as was Rainer also, who was managed by fi. Grinley. A marquee for the pedesl nanswas pitched on each side the road, at the starting place, and from thecon- course of peop'e, and the number of stands and booths, the whole had the appearance of a race-course. Cross started to do the 100 miles at 12 o'clock, and Rainer at one, and belling was two to one on Cross, even bet- the winner did the ground in eighteen even that Ct-oss did it in eighteen and a half. Cross went the first, eight miles iu seventy minutes and a half, and Rainer did eight miles in a minute within the hour. Cross did twenty miles in two hours and 57 minutes, and halted a few minutes for refreshment; and Rainer did the same distance in two hours and a half, and hailed to change his shoes. Both men ran fresh and strong for an tiolit after filis timc, and made more play than was ex peeted. Rainer was within three miles of his adversary at 28 miles running, when he break- fasted, during which time Cross headed him considerably. Rainer ran in the32d mile much weakened, and hewas confined lo his marquee by a sort of sickness some minutes, when bet- ting became in favour of Cross, who was going on well. Rainer was six miles behind, when he recovered, and Cross shewed symptoms of weakness, having gone 40 miles in 5 hours and 50 minutes, taking off stoppages. He continued bis journey, unlil he fell down in going the 46th mile, but he recovered a Iittie, got to the marquee, and after having been rubbed-he went another four miles, when he was completely broke down. It appeared Ihat the failure arose from the tendons below (lie of his legs having-lwei) injured, and he was conveyed to Hampton and put to bed, j although he was desirous of allempting- to go on, but Captain Barclay would not suffer him j to add to the injury already sustained, The Captain accompanied his man the first eight, j miles, and the .greater part of the journey, and repeatedly urged him not to make such play, but the reply of the pedestrian was, that he was doing within himself, butthiy was Ihe probable cause of (lie failure. Rainer v ent on fresh, and offered to do nine .'wiles iu one 1) His great object was next to perform j the distance iu 18 hours, to do which lie had something more than five mites an hour to perform. He was often distressed, but re covered, and in doing the 91st mile in 17 hours hefell exhausted, and was carried to the mar- quee, and from thence to Hampton. Both remained in bed on Saturday, but one must do the dUfance to win the race, and two umpires were in attendance io see it done. Cross was in good condition, excepting lameness, and it seems, fell from exhaustion, and had no oilier injury. After the failure of Cross Captain Barclay opened his marquee to Rainer, and supplied him with flannels and refreshments. Cross had 54 miles to do, and Rainer 9 and a halt. Rainer got fresh yester- day morning, and did the remainder of his ground in It¡e more than two hours, thus winning the stake of 400 guineas. Cross re- mains very lame. tØOO-
