I SPORTING ITEMS. A steeple-chase, hurdle, and fiat race meeting is to be held at Plumpton on Friday, February 6. The colt by Martyrdom out of Bonnie Roe has been sold, and has left Prince's team, at Lewes, for abroad. Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild has arrived in Paris from Vienna, and is staying at the Hotel Westminster. Albion made a successful debut over hurdles at Manchester, and scored a second victory for Golding's stable. Sacristan, although he won the First January Hurdle Race at Manchester on Tuesday, did not shape particularly well. C. Mitchell, the boxer, is at Toronto. Burke is on his way to New Orleans, where, it is said, he and Greenfield are to fight. J. Rolfe, an Australian cyclist, have just covered 100 miles in 6 hours 9 minutes 8 seconds on a track (10 laps to a mile) round the Exhibition buildings. The minimum weight for handicaps in Australia has recently been raised to 6st., an alteration which will not be viewed with general difavour in the mother country. Mr Miller has disposed of the greyhound Merry Lass, by Peter out of Coomassie, to Mr J. S. Whitehead, with contingencies, but the pries (not a very big one) did not transpire. Oddly enough, the hounds in Scotland have been able to run while the Leicestershire men were frozeu our, and some keen sportsmen have crossed the border to secure more hunting. The profits of the late Victoria (New South Wales) Race Club Meeting were something like £ 3,000 more than the previous year. The sport is evidently making vigorous strides in Australia. The latest rumour at Newmarket is to the effeet that Charles Archer has not received a permit to train on the Jockey Club lands. At present the exercise of his team'is conducted on private ground. At the approaching show of the Hackney Stud Book Society, to be held at the Agricultural Hall on the 3rd and 4th March, accommodation will probably be provided for classes of thoroughbred stallions suitable for hunter sires. The Kempton-park Champion Stakfs Was on Tuesday night introduced in the London market, with the result that odds of 1,000 to 80 were offered on the field; but the only wager recorded was one of tvveuty ponies" about Mr Liddell's nomination. Charley Wood means to win this stake. Mr Spencer Brown, the clerk of the scales at Manchester, Leicester, &t; is still very unwell, and he has gone to the shores of the Mediterranean with the hope of recruiting his health. In his absence, Mr Johnson officiated as clerk of the scales at New Barns on Tuesday. A Newmarket correspondent says that, accord- ing to the latest rumours, the horses under Gurry's charge, which are owned by Mr Abington, will be trained on the private ground which was for many years in the occupation of the late Mr Joseph Dawson. A fresh trainer is, however, likely to have the charge of them. A team of the Melbourne Cricket Club played the Bendigo United a one-day's match on Mon- day, November 22, the former being assisted by several of the Australians who were seen in Eng- land last summer. Melbourne obtained 607 for seven wickets, H. F. Boyle making 155 not out, runs coming rather faster than one hundred per hour. We understand that the connection between Tom Green and Lord Durham is not severed, the removal of the horses being brought about by the fact that his lordship intends to race more in the south. Green has already had two offers from noblemen to fill the stables vacated by the Earl of Durham's horses, but no agreement has yet been made.
