JAMES WARD, Esq. R. A.

Engraved by Mr. THOMPSON, from a
Painting by J. JACKSON, Esq. R. A.

MR. Ward, whose portrait is

We have subjoined a list of
some of his works, the talent and
beauty of which must be in the
recollection of our readers, most

here given, was, we under of them having been publicly ex-

stand, a pupil to his brother, Wm.
Ward, the eminent mezzotinto en
graver, in which profession he ex-
celled. He then made several co-
pies and imitations of his relative,
the celebrated Morland, many of
which may easily be taken for the
originals of that artist; but his
genius, like a good horse, was not
inclined to run second when it was
able to be first, and finding out
his strength, he gave a loose rein
to his own abilities, beating Mor
land and mezzotinto many lengths.

T has been matter of surprise to

me how an author can sit down and write a book about nothing at all, when I, who have the fine field of Newmarket Heath before me, and, "in my mind's eye," the whole subject of the First October Meeting, really don't know how to fill a single sheet: but such a cloud at that it gives pain rather than pleapresent hangs over turf affairs, sure to record the little occurrences of the two Meetings I have witnessed at Newmarket.

On my way thither I generally call at a large town in the neigh bourhood, where landlord, waiter, hostler, boots, bystanders, and inhabitants, are all sporting people, according to their several capacities; and my general salutation is, "Well! what sport for the Sir Charles Blunt, Bart. week?"-"Lord, Sir," was the reThe condemned Calf.-A Bull bait. ply to my last inquiry, "we never Not known. hear the name of a horse mentionCattle in a Storm.-Public House ed, or of a guinea being betted in Door, with Huntsman and Hounds, the whole place; and were it not engraved.

but not a guest within. However, towards night the rumbling of a few carriages convinced me I had not mistaken the time; but they were so few in number I could not help asking myself and others the causes of this miserable falling off. The first that presented itself was the lamented illness of the Duke of York, whose kind, condescending, affable, friendly, amiable, and cheerful disposition brought many, many followers, and what he had in prospective probably many more. No Duke of Rutland down-no morning and afternoon shootingno housekeeping at Cheveley-no columns of curling smoke mocking each other in their ascent from the numberless chimneys of that noble mansion-no savoury scent from the kitchens of the Palace, Lord Foley's, Lord Sefton's &c. &c. enough you will say to cast a gloom over any thing or every thing added to which, though there were plenty of horses, there was not one good one in the whole town, compared with times of old.

Five races were set down for the first day; the Trial Stakes to begin with-seven started; and worse I never wish to see in the hands of my enemies; however, they look pretty to strangers while they are running, and, to those who bet for betting's sake, make quite as good sport. A four-year-old of Colonel Wilson's by Tiresias,dam Spinning Jenny, unexpectedly won; and, should it be libellous to abuse a horse, I don't know where I shall hide myself he is a great coarse, ugly, diseased, ill-tempered beast; what the other six must be to be worse than him, I must leave you and your readers to imagine; but it looked like a race at last, between Orion, the second, and the winner, The others of course declined, it

being only a Trial Stakes, as soon as their chance was out.

The next was a match between Lord Anson and Mr. Chifney, both descended from great men in their way; but the sailor was more than a match for the jockey. Pigmy carried 8st. 6lb., Ina 8st. If the weights had been reversed the little one would have won, though with a year's disadvantage in age. Sam Chifney rode the loser most beautifully, but angrily at last, when he found he could conceal his defeat no longer, which, to the last hundred yards, he had done most successfully.

The Grand Duke Michael Stakes, worth upwards of 10001, was the third prize. Of the twenty subscribers, ten came to the post; amongst them high sounding names, but with low pretensions, if we look at the past and present as the only source of turf knowledge-Problem,Bolivar, Monarch, with others, and last, though not least, The General. Here certainly was a Hobgoblin in his way; whether he was so haunted on former occasions we must leave it to Mr. Farquhar, and a very few others to determine. It was a pretty good race, Hobgoblin first, and Colleger second.

The Duke of Grafton's Paul Jones beat Lord Anson's Heroine easy, giving seven pounds, with the appearance of being able to give seven more.

Rachel,Mantua, and Mr. Thornhill's Morel filly, ran for a nice little stake of 900 sovs. which the Duke of York's Rachel won, but with the others close up, and the pace moderate.

TUESDAY.-Mr. Wyndham's Whalebone filly, dam by Teddy, beat Colonel Syng's Number Nip, for 100 sovs. (as the list says); but I declare I would as soon risk
