At Wolver- hampton, 8st each, in a Produce Stakes of 50 sovs. each, for three years old, was beaten by Mr. Fowler's br. f. Fish-fag, by Bran; 5 to 2 on Our Nell. At Doncaster, 8st 6lbs, was not placed for a Plate of ioo sovs., won by Mr. H. Stebbing's ch. c. Edmund, by Muley-Moloch, three years, 7st 6lbs; ten ran. Our Nell ran three times in 1843, and twice in 1844, without success, and was then sold and shipped to Berlin. RACE FOR TIHE OAKS. Owing to several false starts, a full hour was wasted before they got off: Ma-Mie showed a deal of temper, and sent her rider out of the saddle as soon as the race commenced: b. f. Topsail (G. Whitehouse) took the lead at a good pace, Dil-bar and Lady Adela being close up. At Tatten- ham Corner Topsail (Lord Geo. Bentinck's), gave place to Firebrand, who was followed by Celia, Coral, Our Nell, and Dil-bar. Firebrand was beaten at the distance, and passed by Our Nell and Meal, the former winning easily by a length; only the first two were placed.
