This intelligence [European news -
British victory at Calabria] was brought here by the Fame, which arrived on
Monday from Barbados. In her came passenger C. D. Forrester, Esq. to whom we
have to acknowledge our obligations for some papers.
The guns at the Fort were fired in
honour of the victory on Tuesday, and early on Wednesday morning we published
the Extraordinary Gazette. The discharge of the Park and Tower Guns announced
it to the public in London on the 4th Sept.
Horse Race. - Cotton against Coffee. - A
bet, which excited some interest among the Sporting Gentlemen of this Colony,
was determined last Wednesday morning. The match was, an English Mare, backed
by 10 bags of Cotton, against a Virginia horse, backed by 25 bags of Coffee;
the distance, from the Block house to the Kitty; and the horses to be rode by
their respective owners. The mare had by far the greatest weight to carry;
notwithstanding which, however, it was, the language of the Turf, a hollow
match. Whether it was owing to the Johnny Gilpin style in which the opponent's
rider figured away, or to the superiority of British blood we cannot say, but
Cotton came in at least 50 roods before Coffee. Some people observed that
Cotton always would be superior to Coffee on the Coast. A number of Gentlemen
were present, and there were of course several bye-bets; but the principal
amusement arose from the new style of jockeyship displayed and the whimsicality
of some nick-names which were given to the rival horses.
The Court of Policy will meet on Monday.
