WEDNESDAY.—THE CUP DAY. Rain fell steadily at early morn on the present Cup day but good, bad, or indifferent weather makes little matter with the class of people who flock into the an- cient city by rail from all points of the compass, and constitute the immense throng to be found on the Cup day at Chester. Suffice then to say, that in the latter respect the present anniversary formed no exception to those preceding it, and that upon the walls, slopes, and every available spot on the plain below again presented a spectacle unrivalled only at Epsom and Doncaster, on the Derby and St. Leger days. Through good and evil report the race has "held its own," and justified the liberal sums voted by the directors at the close of each meeting for its successor. Diminutions in the strength of the fields since Joe Miller s memorable year may be accouted for in various ways, but notably in the increase of big handicaps in the south of England, and in the fact of fewer horses being bred and trained to stay the Cup course, two miles and a quarter, to say nothing of so many recently figuring in the ists merely for gamb- ling purposes. Premature betting, however, so prejudi- cial to honest sport, at length seems to have wrought its own dissolution, and, like plunging" itself, became a thing of the past, leaving the turf in a more healthy -1. .LL_ .L" a state tnan it nas Deen tor several years past. Six races on the official card of the day, but only one-the Chester Cup—possessed any public interest. The field for this prize was smaller than usual, as only fifteen runners went to the post, a remarkable falling off as compared with former years. Lord Hawke held his position of first favourite firmly to the close of the betting and Indian Ocean, Not Out, Mortemer, and Our Mary Ann were also freely backed. The latter, notwithstanding the noise made in connection with Sunny and other Woodyeate s horses, proved the best animal from this unpopular stable, and it is satisfactory to note that she was easily beaten, after the tricks played with William Day's animals. How the race was woi is fully detailed below, and we need only remark here that the despised outsider, Glenlivat, who was unheard of in the quota- tions till the eve of the race, achieved a hohow victory. The winner, who- was purchased out of John Shepherd's stable, at Malton, did credit to William Scotb's judg- ment, and the run of ill-luck so long associated with the Holywell stable has at last had a well-deserved turn.

THia RACK AND ITS REBULTS.fter several false starts in which Cyclone, Lord Hawke, Highthorn, Viscount, and others took prominent parts, the fifteen competitors were despatched on pretty fair term-, at thirty-nine minutes past three o'clock. Glenlivat, next the rails, gut otf in advance, and he was closely pursued by Our Mary Ann, Cyclone, UiKhthorn, Lord Ilawkei. Sunny, and Lady Henriette. Heading the remaining horses were Viscount Cap-a-Pie, Enterprise, Not Out, and Indian Ocean; the rearward trio being Mortemer, Cherie,. and Rosier uciiin, the last of whom was outpaced in the first quarter of a mile, and was never really in the race. Before the distance had been fairly pa-sed Not Out crossed Indian Ocean, and the latter striking into the heels of the Cheltenham box.. threw his jockey, who fortunately was not hurt; and-al- loped on riderless. Rounding the Workhouse turn Cycloi e and Lord Hawke raced up to Glenlivat, and the 1,4tter e- ing lightly "eased," Cyclone went on with the lead, he oth r horses, with the exception of this trio present., c a a lung" tail" as they ran the course in the first romd, with Mortemer, Cherie, and Rosicruciaa whipping in. The lot ran in wide order, with little noticeable change in the positions, pa-sing the Stand in the second round of the cour-e, but about six furlongs from home Cyclone, who was leading, hugged" the rails, fell, and galloped on without bis jockey. At the half-mile po t Glenlivat and Lori Hawke became the leading pair. Our Mary Ann beir; £ third, and JSXortemer, who had run through his horse- at this point, fourth. Entering the straight Lord Hawke was beaten, and Our Mary Ann and Mortemer took their p!ac<> in waiting on Glenlivat. At the distance the issue wa- left with Glenlivat and Mortemer,. and although the French hor.-e made a g illant effort half-w.ty in the distant e, he failed to reach Gleniivat, who shook him off in the hst two hundred yards, and won easily by three lengths, length between second and third; a bai fourth. Rosicru- cian, beaten nearly a distance, struggled in fifth, Tiscouut sixth, Sunny seventh, Lady Heiuiette eighth, Not Out ninth, and Cherie tenth. The 18.t pair were Cap.a-Pie and bnterprise, the latter being hopelessly beaten in the first mde and a, half. Highthorn, after going once round the course was pulled up and returned to the inclosure.- Time, aa taken by Benson's chronograph 4 minutes 2 > j seconds.
