SALÉS BY AUCTION,
255 of going round and round, as if he had been accustomed to turn a mill. A cat and dog's meat man, however, who was in distress, might think him worth his attention. To be seen at the stable in the Admiralty.
Chancellor, a dark brown horse. Some say he is å Scott; others, that he was bred at Newcastle. When a colt, he was reckoned good at a Bar leap; and on the Chancery course not a bad mover. He was, however, never welt upon his haunches, and dishes confoundedly.
Duellist, a brown colt, bred in the North of Ireland, He is cat-hammed, goose-rumped, and ewe-necked. Yet, with all these defects of shape, he was a horse of considerable performance, and excellent wind. He won the Union cup in Ireland; but in running lately for the Walcheren and Madrid stakes, he broke down most miserably. He can never be entered for a King's plate again; and, for many reasons, he will not answer · for breeding. But as a hack to run in a chaise, or the like, he is still of some value.
President, a bay horse, aged, dam by Chief Justice, grand-dam by Patriot, great grand-dam by Liberty, out of a Wilderness mare. His sire was the famous, Camden, who won the Magna Charta stakes, distancing 17 others. President is a strong bony punch of a horse, in good condition, very steady and quiet in harness, but a dull mover. For the plough, the cart, the dray, or the team, he will be found serviceable, as he is sound in linb, his constitution is good, and there is a good deal of hard meat in his belly.
Squil, a bay horse, originally used in a gig, or as a palfrey or pleasure-horse, by the late Mr. Pitt, who bred him, "He is, however, by no means safe, as he is skittish and as fidgétty as a colt fresh figged. In 1808 he was matched for the Commercial stakes against the famous American horse President, rode by Jefferson, and the Jockey Club at Lloyd's pronounced
SALES BY AUCTION, it a dead heat. It is, however, now well known, that there was a great deal of crossing and jostling on the part of Squib, and that President bad the advantage by a full head. In a late match on Putney Heath, against Duellist, he received a hurt in one of his quarters, in consequence of which he was drawn, and, it is sup, posed, he never will be fit to enter the lists again, We know nothing of his stock, either dam or sire. We have examined the Racing Calendar, but can find no trace of his pedigree.
SECOND DAY. Young Jenkey, a dirty cream-coloured colt. This, like the Vicar of Wakefield's colt, has been upwards of seven years in the family. He was matched, ip the last century, against Sans Culotte, in the celebrated race to Paris, but paid forfeit. At the Tranent Meeta ing, some years ago, in which many people were killed on the course, he showed some blood; and in the sweepstakes on the Westminster turf, after the death of that celebrated jockey Mr. Bill Pitt, he ran off with the famous Goose of the Cinque Ports to Walmer Castle.. Young Jenkey is very deficient in bone and sinew, He was got by Ploughboy, dain by Courtier, out of a Syco, phant mare.
Yelper. This is a little, bitter, hard-mouthed, hardbitten, hardy poney, something like a Scotch galloway. He is a constant goer; but the creature is scarcely equal to a feather. He was got by Delusion, dam by Anti-pope, grand-dam by Old Cant, out of a Quiz mare, own sister to Lord Egremont's celebrated cart-horse Reversioner.
Nineteen-pence halfpenny. A wall-eyed old horse, in very low condition; but, pishopped and figged, may make a showy appearance. He is very well known in Westmorland. General, own brother to Sweet William, by the
THE NEW CHEVY CHASE.
257 celebrated horse Chatham, out of a Grenville mare. This is a horse of as good blood as any in the kingdom, but he was spoiled in the training. He is a remarkably dull mover. When he started lately for the Antwerp stakes, he was not able to strike a trot, and was drawn to save his distance. Just recovered from the sleepy staggers.
Apsley, a br. h. got by Bathurst, won the Claret takes last year, heating Bumper and several others.
The following lot to be disposed of at the same time, to the first bidder : Blaster, a cart-horse, got by Fuller's-earth; he is a horse of good carcase--not warranted. Treasurer, late Cheesenipper, got by Purser, out of Old Rose--a very serviceable hack, but long past mark of mouth. Secretary, a fresh hack, by Defaulter, out of Scotch Kate, dam by Melo ville own brother to Wha wants me?
Note.--In our description of Duellist, one of the cast horses advertised on Saturday, we forgot to mention that he is an exact likeness of the Vicar of Wakefield's horse Tharnberry, who, Doctor Goldsmith says, wanted a tail.
THE NEW CHEVY CHASE.
[From the Morning Chronicle, Sept. 30.)
Our cash and comforts all,
The row that did befall:
John Bull went to the play,
I trow he won the day.
Did vow to God God willing-
They 'd touch--the other skilling?
THE NEW CHEVY CHASE.
For they a Theatre had made,
This famous Cat to squall in;
No doubt of caterwauling !
With foreign airs and vices
And banish'd his « Old Prices."
All chosen men of might
Their Prices-wrong or right.
Their schemes did soon unriddle ;
(Quoth he) your Cat and Fiddle!
For building this here house!
Just as she'd catch a mouse?
Much with the ton increases,
With Seven Shilling Pieces !
It shall not do-by jingo ;,
And no outlandish lingo !"
Macbeth and Wife were hissid !
Unuotic'd pass'd, I wist.
The Tyrant had no use
Though ne'er a flag of truce!
Or call it what you may,
THE NEW CHEVY CHASE.
The Actors ran through every scene,
As fast as they could go-
Or eke a puppet-show.
Were turn'd upon the stage. OC-! it was a grief to see, (For word
could not hearExcept the speech of Mister Leigh)
A tragedy so queer!
With bell and bugle brazen !
Help'd out the diapason !
A Don of thorough blood;
Firm as a mule he stood.
“What want ye here," he cried" We neither want your Cat or cant,”.
Our Englishmen replied.
And for her pipe, perdie,
Five hundred good as she !”
Of.ratiles and of row.sticks;
Confound the Catacoustics!
Almost upon his stumps !
You've got what you have wish'd ;
And somike Cat is dish'd!
