LLANDDYFNAN. CAPTAIN HAMPTON" LEWIS'S HARRIERS. —This pack of hounds met for the last time this season at Llanddyfnan Gate. Tliere was a very numerous field on the occasion, and indeed for the last three yours the followers of this pack have greatly increased—both ladies aud gentlemen. The gallant Captain is well-known in the hunting world, as one of the best sportsmen and huntsman in the county; and take him all in all," one of the most agreeable men, either in the hunting field or in society. The kindly trouble he takes in promoting and producing sport has deeply endeared him to the lovers of the chase in this part of the Island; and all are grateful for the great amount of sport he has this season furnished them. His ever-anxiety and the painstaking conduct in re- specting and protecting the right and interest of the fanner have also gained him the high commendation of the tenant farmers. This pack of harriers is in high repute, and is decidedly without an equal,—at all events it has no superior in this Isle, and is as near to perfection as good training can make it. On this last occasion there was excellent sport enjoyed, such as is not often wit- nessed, and was such as any true lover of sport and ardent huntsman could desire to see. It is an open country, and a fine hunting one, without hardly bush or brake. There was one run we noticed in particular, at which—ladies, men and hounds seemed as if they were electrified. There was no time to look out for gaps or gates, but each one took his own line of country and went sailing away in a gallant style, and there were some brilliant displays in horsemanship. The manner in which the ladies acquitted themselves was a theme of universal admiration; and never was a body of men more delighted; and never did a pack of hounds hunt truer or better. As intimated above, this was to have been the last meet; but in consequence of the ardent desire and a pressing invitation from Henry Pritchard, Esq., Treseawen, and John Priestley, Esq., Hirdrefaig, another day was granted by the worthy and kind hearted Captain, at the seats of each of the above named gentle- men, and on both occasions some excellent and rare eport was enjoyed. It was pleasing to observe how grateful the whole numerous field appeared to the gal- lant and worthy Captain for the delightful and manly sport he had granted them during the season. It is our heart-felt wish that many happy years will be granted him to lead forth his merry pack to the delight of all. Henry Pricchard, Esq., and John Priestley, Esq., gave an excellent cold collation on the above occasions.— Communicated.
