For a prize of 5 sovs., five scullers contested--won by T. Gurney, of Eton ; J. Haverley, of that ilk, second.

A prize of 5 sovs. for an oars-match was the next object of interest, and five boats appeared to start ; but when it was known that Charles Campbell of Lambeth, the Champion of the River, and his brother George, who ranks first-rate among the light-weights (having gone up with a liberal patron of the London River), had resolved to have a shy, two boats rather sulkily withdrew from competition. The Campbells, soon after starting, went a-head, and their opponents had not the shadow of a chance ; H. Goatley of London and F. Gurney of Eton second, and received 2 sovs. ; R. Brades and J. Haverley, of Eton, last.

A Match between eight punters terminated the sports, the Stewards expressing their determination “ to do better” next year.

Match between the Grenadier Guards and the Royal Artillery.-The town of Greenwich was a scene of much gaiety on Saturday the 13th of July, and all the taverns were crowded with the élite of the Fashionable World, among whom were, Lord Adolphus Fitzclarence, the Marquis of Waterford, Earl and Dowager Countess of Scarborough, Lord Grimston, Sir George Clerk, Mr. H. Baring, &c.—During the preparations, the ennui of waiting for the start was greatly relieved by the kind condescension of Lord Adolphus, who, with other Naval and Military Officers, ordered the old pensioners “glasses (of rum) round," His Lordship conversing freely with those who served under his late Royal Father, their “ Sailor King :" and all not a little amused by the hearty jokes and quaint expressions of the veteran tars, whilst expatiating on their little barkies, “the fleetest of the fleet.Between 4 and 5 P. M. the gallant competitors made their appearance in galleys; that in which the Guards rowed belonging to their own Club, and that of the Artillery to the Union Clubi. The former six gentlemen were, Captain F. W. Hamilton, the Hon. Captain Foley, Captain Cartwright, Captain Spottiswoode, Captain Hudson, and the Hon. Captain Stanley ; their cockswain, Wilson Emery. The only names of the Officers of the Artillery that we could obtain were, Lieut. Wood of the Horse, and Lieut. Cheetham of the Foot Brigade ; Phillips cockswain.— The two boats proceeded to the starting-point, opposite the Hospital, accompanied by several galleys, amongst which were those of the Coldstream and Fusileer Guards. At 4-35 P. M. the signal was given, and both boats shot off in gallant style, the vigorous exertions of cach party drawing forth loud and long-continued cheers as the galleys swiftly glided past the taverns, and also from crowds of well-dressed spectators of both sexes along-shore. The Guards had slightly the advantage in going off, and maintained the lead to the winningboat, moored off the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, a distance of five miles, which they passed in about two minutes and a half before their opponents. The victorious party were loudly cheered by a large concourse of fashionables who had assembled to witness the result, and by the Officers and their Ladies of the Garrison. The Guards were the favorites for some days previous to the Match at 7 to 5.

The following are the names of the Gentlemen, and of the Colleges of which they are respectively members, &c., who formed the crew of the winning boat in the Cambridge University Four-oared Boat-race from Westminster to Putney, for the Medals given by their Club, and to which we alluded in our last Number :

Picknell 1 and not out ; byes, &c. 14 : total 119; or in both innings 172.- The Gents went in confidently; but here another instance of the uncertainty of the game was exemplified, their united score being only 48, and consequently losing by 17 runs.--Of these Mr. Napper marked 12, Mr. C.

The Chalvington had another shy with the Brighton on the 4th and 5th, the former having, in addition to their late colleague Pilch, the further assistance of Wenman and Cobbett; whilst the latter were deficient of Lilywhite and some of their best players. With such great odds, it was little wonder that the Chalvington were in this instance in the ascendant. In their first innings they scored 102, Pilch making 27, R. Picknell 17, Cane 10, Wenman, G. Picknell

, and Grey 8 each (the latter not out), Dray 6, Jenner and R. Guy 2 each, J.

Tattersall's, July 25, 1839. As the Goodwood Meeting will be “on” ere this meets the public eye, it will be unnecessary to give the bettings either on the Stakes or Cup : the former race has afforded the fancy men a host of favorites, and the betting men a rich gleaning.

Several changes of importance will be found in the last betting on the St. LEGER: Bloomsbury has reached his training quarters in Yorkshire, and is stated to be in excellent condition : Deception's running proves him to be a very superior horse : the highest odds obtainable are sf to 1, and at this figure the layers against him are amazingly shy. Charles the Twelfth won the Liverpool Cup (two miles) in a canter with 6st. 61b, on him, beating a field of fourteen others of all ages, and at once disputed the Premiership with Bloomsbury: the latter, however, has the call here. Some thousands were betted at evens between them at Liverpool on the Cup evening. Charles the Twelfth's rise was anticipated in our last notice


at Tattersall's. Hetman Platoff and The Lord Mayor are in some demand at the underneath figures ; and Sleight-of-hand is occasionally named by gentlemen remarkable for being tolerably correct. The Provost and The Commodore are quite out of favor, the latter especially : some entertain doubts as to his starting. Easingwold and Bolus are backed for small sums, now and then, without any prospect of making an advance.

Very little has been done on the Derby. It seems likely that Naworth will be disqualified owing to an omission in the naming of his dam.

For the Oaks Crucifix has been backed for a large amount at 6 to 1, and Currency to some amount at 20 to 1.
