I SPORTING ITEMS. So far the Scotch football clubs on tour in Lan- cashire for the New Year's holidays have fared very Ladly. Rumour already speaks well concerning some tivo-year- ilds by Mask, who was himself possessed of tine speed when in trainiug. The near fore-leg of Cyrus has given way, and as he is a horse that requires a large amount of exercise to get him in condition, it is doubtful if he will ever stand a preparation again. At Manchester, where it is said in future the horses are to be fed and stabled at be expense of the race fund, the features of the Easter meeting are:, hurdle race of £1,000, and a steeplechase of £ 1,000. At Marden Deer Park, Caterhatn, Surrey, at 3 a.m. on the 1st of January, Venice, by Carnival out of Isoiine, the property of the Marden Stud, foaled a hue bay co.t by Beaudesert, which is the first foal of the year. The veteraii Rocket appealed in winning colours in a Selling Hurdle Plate at Plumpton, on Friday, and once again change i hands, Mr Jodrell g.ving eighty guineas for him. He has had a few owners in his time. Harvester has made his re appearance on the training-ground, and, although he wears flannel boots, a Newmarke: corre-pijndent believer, him to be thoroughly sound, and likely to be heard of in connection with the spring handicaps. Xaintrailles is likely to commence work again in a few days, but it would be as well for intend- ing backers of the colt for the class.c races to re- member that he has several engagements in France during the spring, for some of which iie is sure to be sent to run, The Duke m Devonshire has granted the use of Saffron field, East-bourne—a meadow of about ten acres in extent, fringed with trees and very level throughout—to the Devonshire Park Cricket Club at a merely nominal rental. A commodious paviilion will e erected without Iocs ot time. The Christmas Cup, competed for at Haydock Park Coursing Meeting by the winners of the Old and New Years Snakes, was won by Woman in Black, the property of Mr W. Osborne, who, with his brother John, presides over the Ashgill training establishment at Middleham. A Wick Correspondent says :—A ring plover took shelter on board ona of uur fishing boats lately when fifty miles out at sea, and was cap- tured, and it also was taken to Mr McKay's but it d.el very soon afterwards. I cannot make 1 ut what took this bird so far from home. There were 110 gales at the time to account for it, and this pretty liLtle plover is not given to flying far from the sea shore. Ubique," in Land and IVate)-, says: T am authorised to issue the following challenge from the Australian amateur champion sculler, Mr W. G. Brett. Mr Brett challenges any gentleman amateur in England, America, nr the world, to scull him over the championship course on the Paramatta River for a LODO trophy, or he will scull on the Thames course, taking or allowing I £100 for expenses, adding an additional £ 50 as an inducement for any one to go over to Aus- tralia." We may state that English amateurs do not contest for L500 trophies, and Air Brett should appeal to professionals.
