SPORTING ITEMS. I Mr Arthur Yates's stable will not he repre- sented at the Manchester New Year's Meeting. Walter Sugg has been appointed professional to theBurnley Cricket Club for next season. Those backers who put 210 on each of C. Wood's mounts for 1884 lost a little over E500 for the year. The two clubs left in for the English Football Cup that are most fancied are Queen's-park and Blackburn Rovers. The Southern Couuties Championship is now definitely fixed to take place at Sandown-park, Esher, on Saturday, February 14. The promising young cross-country rider, A. Nightingall, has met with very severe injuries while schooling a horse over hurdles at Epsom. Adolph Schwertzer, the short-distance amateur champion of Germany, has arrived in New York with a view of taking down Myers. Terrier, who has arrived at Manchester, has not been seen out since the Grand National of last year, when he ran remarkably well for a four-year-old. Every effort is being made to have the post- poned four-round boxing contest between the American champion, John L. Sullivan, and Paddy Ryan decided in Chicago. It is now stated that notwithstanding his defeat in London, Rowell will enter the six days'" go- as-you-please match to which Littiewood, of England, has been challenged by Fitzgerald, to take place in New York in March next. To run for the Queen's Plates costs only five shillings, and there will be plenty of competition for them, though we may never again see thirty or forty horses, as in the days of Queen Anne, who founded them. At that time everyone own- ing a horse that could gallop started him for the Queen's Plate, which was almost the only race that could be run for. The trial horse of most of the Newmarket Stables has been old Saucy Boy. He is a very bad horse, but nothing has succeeded in getting in front of him Yet, and to several batches of two-year olds, he has given 211b. and run clean away from them. One youngster of whom a great opinion had been formed was pitted against him at even weights, but Saucy Boy won. "White and Gold" says in the Glasgow Herald that there ia a sort of rumour that Mr Baird' has threatened, if the Jockey Club persist in their present attitude towards him, to buy a great part of the training ground over their heads. If he were to buy the famous Limekilns grounds, which is the property indicated, he would place the Jockey Club in a very awkward position. A youth named Hugh Lenrin, apprentice to a bookbinder, died at Edinburgh on Mondav from iniuries received in a football field. lie was playing in the Queen's-park on Saturday, when he received a violent kick in the stomach, which completely prostrated him, and caused him in- tense pain. A doctor attended him, but the un- fortunate youth gradually sank.—At Hull, on Saturday, while playing football, A. Thornton had his shoulder put out, and T. Lambert broke his leg. It has been stated that the dispute between the Jockey Club and the Duke of Rutland extends to the Cambridge course, and that a threat has been made to close it. This is incorrect, there being no dispute as to this course, nor can there be. Under the Commons Inclosure Act, it is provided that this part of the Heath shall be kept open for the purpose of horse-racinq for ever, and that nothing shall be built upon it. The lease of the Jockey Club of some 60 acres adjoining has ex- pired, and the Duke of Rutland now seeks a higher rent. The alteration in Matthew Dawson's training programme will, it issaid, bringabout the following changes :—Lord Rosebery and Baron Hirsch will train privately, with Rogers, recently head lad at Matthew Dawson's, as trainer. Lord Cawdor will join Capt. Bedford, at Exeter House, with Cray, late of Tupgill, as trainer. Matthew Daw- son will nominally be private trainer for the Duke of Portland and Lord Hastings, but to this con- federacy will be added their friends Lord Charles Beresford, Lord L-i.celles, Lord Ilchester, Mr R. C. Vyner, the Marquis of Londonderry, and, of course, Lord Falmouth. The following items are gathered from the World :—Captain Brocklehurst has decided upon resigning the presidency of the York and Ainsty Hounds, and that he only holds the horn till a suitable successor can be found. Foxes are said to be rather scarce in some parts of his domain but that is not, I believe, the cause which induces him to give up the Mastership.—Lord Houghton leaves this week, accompanied by Lady Gal way, for Cannes, whence lie proceeds to Florence, Rome, Naples, and Egypt, intending to be away for about 3 months.—Lord Falmouth's hoalth has improved during the last few weeks.—There was some tall shooting at Sandrinsrham last week, more than 1,000 head falling to the guns daily. There is to be a. big shoot "nuring the next ten days.—A curious incident occurred at the funeral of the late Mr Gverend at Retford, on Tuesday last. He had been for years in the habit of feeding the rooks in a large cluster of trees near his own door; and while the funeral was going on, ona of them flew from the rookery and perched itself on the bough of a tree close to the grave, and reverently remained there till it was over.
