SPORTING ITEMS. The death is announced of Saville Sykes, a xvell- known Yorkshire cricketer. The efforts of the Gaelic Athletic Association to revive the once famous game of hurling is commanding support. At a meeting held in Manchester on Wednes- day night, it was resolved to hold the National Cross-Country Union Championship over the Manchester Racecourse on Saturday, March 7th. The Sice Races promise to be iairly interesting, although the big handicaps do not present that aspect of international sport which they formerly did. A gentleman suggests the holding of a great northern rifle meeting, on the same lines as Wimbledon, either at Leeds or York. Many who have business at race meetings will learn with regret of the death of Mr Thomas Bradfieid, for many years clerk to Mr W. J. Ford, the well-known racing judge. On Wednesday night Walter Gregory, the well-known Nottingham sportsman, entertained, as is his annual custom, all the aged people in the Nottingham Workhouse, some 700, to a sumptuous meat tea, a concert following. A complimentary assauit-at-arms and presenta- tion to Mr G. W. Renshaw (amateur champion gymnast of England), previous to his departure for New Zealand, 'cook place on Weanesday evening in the Lecture Hall of the Manchester Athenaeum, in the presence of a large and enthu- siastic company of his friends and admirers. There is an abundance of foxes in Kent, and the Old Surrey Foxhounds, which draw the coverts in the western section, have had tremendous long runs since Christmas. Rabbits are scarce, and now that the lambing season has commenced farmers keep up a vigorous watch against the intrusion of foxes on the sheep flocks. All the stakes advertised for the iiaydocb Cours'ng Meeting, to be held to-morrow, are full, n and in consequence of the great demand for nominations it has been decided to add two more eight-dog stakes to the card. Mr Elkan, Berlin, ha.s this week had consigned to him the following thorough-breds, shipped at Harwich, to Berlin:—Lioness, by King of the Forest; Catamaran, by Indian Ocean Milkmaid, by Greenback Semiramis, by Cecrops; chesnuG colt by Martyrdom; and a bay filly by Kisber. The ring profited largely over the principal, three-year-old races last season, and this should. act as a caution to those who-are inclined to accept a short Drice about prominent candidates for this year's classic races. Keen's water cycle, which John Keen, the ex- champion bicyclist, has now patented, has received one or two improvements since it was first brought to notice. A private trial was made with the cycle oil the Thames, on Tuesday after- noon, between Hampton Court and Kingston Bridges, a distance of a few yards over three miles, and Keen accomplished this in 26 minutes. It appears to be perfectly safe, and anyone that can ride an ordinary bicycle can ride it. Keen proposes to show it on the Thames daily between Westminster and London bridges, in connection With the Stanley Exhibition, which curniiiences on the 26th inst. The weight of the machine was only 201bs. The Royal Artillery Steeple-chases will taka place on PlumEtead Marshes, on Friday, April 10. LittTa Duchess (5 yrs), by Cucumber—Duchess of Malfi, has joined S. Saunder's team at Hednes- ford. The dark brother to Althotas was introdueed into the Guineas market on Wednesday at 20 to 1. The colt is the property of Lord Ilchester, and is trained by M. Dawson. Yesterday a large and influential towns- meeting at Shrewsbury, presided over by the mayor, was held, to consider the desirability of carrying on the Shrewsbury races. The Mayor s'ated that the Shrewsbury Meeting was one of great antiquity, the earliest account of the Meetiug being 1752. Mr Alderman Groves moved, and Mr Councillor Robins seconded. "That steps be taken to continue the meeting." An amendment was moved, but only 12 voted for it, and the original motion was carried. Of the English sires out in New Zealand, the defunct TraduCer scored most at the recent Can- terbury Races. Leolinus, Perkin Warbeck, Cadogan, and Musket also tigureas winning sires, Apremont, a brother to Chamant, who was im- ported into the colony by Mr Stead, seems to meet with plenty of patronage indeed, in an im- portant stake just closed with 40 subs., he figures as the sire of no than 15 of the entries. Musket, in the same stake, stands as the sire of ten youngsters, while Cadogan has five,
