SPORTING ITEMS. t A steeple-chase, hurdle, and flat race meeting is to be held at Plumpton on F' iday, 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. 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, has 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 disfavour 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 price (not a very big one) did net transpire. Oddly enough, the hounds in Scotland have been able to run while chfJ Leicestershire men were frozen out, and some koen sportsmen have crossed the border to secure mora hunting. The profits of the late Victoria (New South Wales) Race Club Meeting weir something :ike £ 3,000 more than the previous yea, The sport is evidently making vigorous strides 111 Australia. The latest rumour at Newmarkti is to the effect that Charles Archer has not yet 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 Stakes was on Tuesday night introduced in the London market, with tha result that odds of 1.000 to 80 were offered on the field; but the only wager recorded was one of twenty ponies" about Mr Liddell's nomination. Charley Wood means to win this stake. Mr Spencer Brown, the clerk of the scales at Manchester, Leicester, &c., 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. 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 bad two offers from noblemen to till the stables vacated by the Earl of Durham's horses, but no agreement has yet been made.
