THE CHASE.

The farmers of Holderness are about to present Mr. Hodgson (the new Master of the Quorn) with a piece of plate in token of remembrance for the sport he has for so long a period afforded them. Mr. Viner, it is understood, will hunt the Holderness country with a subscription.

We are glad to hear that a print of the portrait of the veteran Wells (with hounds), late Huntsman to Charles Wicksted, Esq., and now kennel huntsman to Sir Thomas Boughey, Bart., is in forward progress-engraved by Giller, after a picture by W. Smith.

Novel Stag Hunt at Killarney.--I have been witness (says a Correspondent in the Limerick Chronicle) to a truly novel and delectably ludicrous chase of a fugitive from the inclosure, that fell in with the Muckross pack while being exercised in pursuit of a hare. Baffled in every attempt to regain his home in the mountains, the lord of the forest, in ignorance of the country, took his fleet career through the romantic village of Cloughereen. Young and old joined the chase ; even the village schoolmaster forgot his birchen sceptre, and “Shaneen threw aside the slate and wasthur” to share in the fun. Along the road poured the uproarious throng as far as the bridge, where the antlered monarch overleaped the battlement ; and, after a refreshing swim across the Flesk, was soon lost to hounds and hunters' ken, and found a temporary shelter in a jungle in the neighborhood of Ross Island. He was soon, however, discovered ; and having traversed in rapid flight the lands of Bunrower, again plunged into the Flesk, followed by a stout son of the sod, who, panting for the honor and glory of taking the stag, leaped after him ; and, being unable to swim, his temerity might have cost him his life but for his activity in grasping the animal by the tail, and in this extraordinary manner was he towed to terra firma, frequently exclaiming during his passage,

“ Murthur! I'm drowndid if the tail breaks." After a vain but splendid effort to reach the woods of Cahirnane, the stag was again forced back into the river, closely followed by his pursuers, biped and quadruped, dashing, splashing, swimming, yelling, and roaring in glorious confusion. "A student from the banks of the Cam now attempted to capture him, but was by a kick prostrated in the liquid element, and the honor of taking him fell to Mr. Herbert, of Cahirnane, who held him firmly till the laggards arrived to his assistance, and the lord of the sylvan world was bound and led back to captivity,

CRICKET.

The “ Grand Match” between the County of Sussex with A. Mynn, Esq., and All England commenced on the 16th of September at Brown's Grounds, Brighton. It was originally intended that Pilch should play for Sussex, but having been hurt in the shoulder in the last Match, Mr. Mynn was substituted for him, and Redgate supplied Mr. Mynn's place for England. The excessive rain on Tuesday precluded the possibility of play, and on Wednesday the wickets, from a similar cause, could not be pitched till one o'clock : the game was consequently protracted till half-past five on Thursday. It is needless to add that the ground was in a very bad state throughout the Match, and both bowler and batter had great difficulty in keeping a footing. Sussex in their first innings scored 63 ; England 152. In their second in-go, Sussex added 119, making a total of 182, leaving England to go in for 31, which were obtained with the loss of four wickets. The following is the score :-Sussex : Taylor, of North Chapel, 10 and 40, Hawkins 4 and not out and 33, Milyard 3 and 16, Lilywhite 14 and 0, Mr. C. Taylor 0 and 8, Mr. G. Langdon 4 and 3, Box 7 and 0, Mr. Barton 7 and (absent), Mr. A. Mynn 1 and 3, Mr. E. Napper 0 and 4, Dean 2 and 0, but not out; byes, &c. 11 and 12.-England : Guy 65, Wenman 21, Redgate 9, Cobbett 8, Sewell 8, Mills 7, Stearman 5, Hillier 4, Mr. C. Whittaker 2, Mr. R. Kynaston 0, Mr. W. Mynn 0; byes, &c. 23_total 152.-- In their second in-go, Stearman made 12 and not out, Mr. C. Whittaker 10, Mr. R. Kynaston 3, Mills 2, Mr. W. Mynn 2; 1 bye and 1 wide ball.-Guy, Taylor, and Hawkins batted splendidly, and Wenman played steadily and well. The weather was dreadfully against the players, but they “kept up the ball” with unabated zeal and spirit from first to last.

LITERARY NOTICES. Yarrell's British Birds.- The XI Vth Part of this excellent work contains the Rook, Jackdaw, Magpie, Jay, Nut-cracker, the great black, the green, and the great spotted Woodcock—all illustrated in the same exquisite manner that distinguished the preceding delineations of the feathered tribe. In alluding to the “ Hooded" Crow,” in the preceding Part, Mr. Yarrell expresses regret that he had unaccountably omitted to add to its name that of the “ Royston Crow,” which (he says), ““ I believe is the older name of the two. Merrett, Willoughby, and Ray, use the name of Royston Crow

only ; the two latter authors quoting Royston and Newmarket Heath as the localities of the bird in winter. That it is abundant about Royston from October to March I can testify on my own knowledge : its boldness, the contrast in the colors of its plumage, and the open character of that country, assist in rendering this bird very conspicuous, and we shall be as correct in referring to it by the name of the Royston Crow as we are in speaking of the Iceland Falcon, the Dartford Warbler, and many other birds named in reference to certain localities in which they are most frequently found.” The reputed purloining propensities of the magpie and jackdaw are fully borne out, and as an instance, among many others of the latter bird, Mr. Yarrell states, that, from one nest built in the shaft of a chimney in Freeschool-lane, Cambridge, no fewer than 18 dozen of wooden labels, about nine inches long and one inch broad, were taken: these labels had been abstracted from time to time by the jackdaws from the Botanic Garden in the vicinity.

Jones's General Outline of the Animal Kingdom.- The Seventh Part of this highly interesting work is now before us, and, as a “ Manual of Comparative Anatomy," must be invaluable to those who are desirous to search into the arcana of Nature. In every point of view this Part is equal to its predecessors, and the subjects are delineated with the same faithfulness and beauty of execution that distinguish all the Zoological works published by Mr. Van Voorst.

The Poultry Yard.— Among the many useful works on the subject of domestic poultry, this, published by W. R. M-Phun of Glasgow, will iake precedence in the estimation of the “gude housewife,” inasmuch as it gives practical instructions for selecting, rearing, and breeding the various species of domestic fowl. To the cottager too, hitherto guided by the random suggestions or unwise example of his neighbours, it will prove most valuable, exhibiting, as it does, plainly, practicably, and profitably, the best mode for the management of cottage live stock--either in the poultry-house, the dovecot, or the rabbit-hutch. The little volume also contains an account of the different kinds of pigeons and birds of fancy or use. The work is written in an easy familiar style suited to its purposes ; and to those who “ cultivate poultry for profit or pleasure, we have no doubt it will prove, what the compiler (Mr. Peter Boswell of Greenlaw) wishes it to be, “ instructive to the ignorant, and successful to the judicious.”

Encyclopædia of Rural Sports. By D. P. Blaine.-(Longman & Co.) In our last Number we annexed a prospectus of the above Dictionary, for the publication of which, we, in common with others, have looked with no small degree of pleasurable expectancy. The work itself, the first Part of which is now before us, realizes all that could have been anticipated ; for it promises, by the comprehensiveness of its plan, the variety and practical utility of its contents, to become not only in great request by professed Sportsmen, but to be a favorite with others who usually turn an indifferent ear to such subjects. Mr. Blaine has certainly succeeded, as far as we may yet judge, in producing a work as entertaining in character as it is useful in its historical and antiquarian records.- The present Part gives a sketch of the progress that hunting has made from the remotest periods of which we have any account. It presents a body of historical facts relating to the Field Sports of Great Britain and Ireland : describing with a pleasant minuteness (further assisted by spirited vignettes) the rudely-contrived methods our forefathers adopted for capturing their prey ; continuing with a narration of the advances they made as civilisation and experience increased, until the sport became a recreative and exhilarating amusement instead of a mere necessary pursuit. A succinct account is then given of the sporting history of every other country, gathered from numberless sources, all fairly

and judiciously acknowledged. In addition to these informing data, we find coupled with them interesting notices of the several animals the author has occasion to name, from which much information may be gathered as to their general history, both anatomical and physiological, especially of those that were originally domesticated for their ready docility in aiding in his warfare with the field, and this portion of the work we look upon to be of much importance. These particulars, arranged in as chronological an order as the subjects will admit, are written in a clear, unpretending manner, suitable to the popular character of the topics discussed, and to the taste and comprehension of the general reader. We must not omit to bestow our heartiest commendation upon the beauty of the graphic accompaniments, by Landscer and other eminent artists, with which the work is unsparingly embellished. Although inobtrusive and quite subsidiary to the main purpose of interpreting the text, they are really cabinet gems. They are not only illustrations, but choice specimens of art, which for spirited design and delicate engraving may vie with anything of the day; and in these times of excellence that is no indifferent praise.

Upon modern sports the anthor has not yet spoken. We see, by the prospectus, that he will leave nothing untouched. Horse Racing, Hunting, Coursing, Hawking, Shooting, Fishing, &c. will, in turn, receive prominent consideration ; and, judging by the analytical table of contents before us, will be illustrated by incidental matter that promises to render the essays upon them peculiarly valuable to every one engaged in the pursuits in question. We therefore commend this Encyclopædia to our readers as a work in which they will find much intelligence essentially serviceable to them. It is, in short, a condensation of every species of sporting literature, that only the most sedulous industry could have achieved, and it is brought out in a form that renders it accessible to all classes.

OBITUARY.

The celebrated horse Consol, by Lottery, dam by Cerberus out of Merlin's dam by Delpini (formerly the property of G. Walker, Esq., of Eastwood Hall, near Nottingham), exported to America in 1835, died at Huntsville, Ala, on the 23rd of April last.

John Hart, trainer to the Earl of Orford, died on the 2nd of September, aged 42.

The York Herald, in announcing his decease, says, “ His blunt honesty was excellent security for invested confidence. He discharged the duties of his vocation ably and faithfully, lived respected, and died regretted."

The same Journal announces the death of Mrs. Lonsdale, on the 30th of August at Tupgill, near Middleham, at an advanced age. her biographer, “ widow of the late Mr. John Lonsdale, the eminent trainer, who trained the celebrated horses Ebor, Reveller, Doctor Syntax, Antonio, St. Patrick, and most of the first-rate horses of his day. Her remains were interred near the grave of her husband, in Coverham church-yard. In her day, Mrs. Lonsdale was considered to possess great knowledge of the merits and abilities of the English race-horse, and paid very considerable attention to the treatment of horses in her husband's stable : indeed, her judgment on that subject was ever looked to with considerable respect. She was mother-in-law to Mr. Robert Johnson, the talented trainer of Bee's-wing, &c."
