THE ROYAL THAMES YACHT CLUB. A very full meeting of the Members of the above Club took place at their Club-house in Cockspur-street, on Thursday, May 5th. The Commodore (W. H. Harrison, Esq.) in the chair. After the minutes of the last meeting had been read and confirmed, the entry of Yachts for the forthcoming match on Saturday, June 4th, commenced, when the names of the following Yachts were given in, and their station at the starting place will be thus :

THIRD CLASS. 1 Brilliant

8...... H. Fowler, Esq. 2 Sea Nymph


.C. Wheeler, Jun. Esq. 3 Rival

W. Sawyer, Esq. The only difference in the prizes this year is, that the principal prize will consist of a very handsome silver tea service instead of a salvor as formerly. I should also mention that the first yacht coming in, of whatever class, wins the principal prize; that the second yacht coming in of the two remaining classes wins the second prize; and the first yacht coming in of the remaining class wins the third prize; the distance will be as usual from buoys moored off Greenwich Hospital, down to Coal House Point, below Gravesend, and back again. The Royal Sovereign Steamer is engaged to convey the officers of the club, the members, and their fair friends, and should the day be propitious a large and fashionable company will no doubt assemble on board.

It is fixed that the match for the Grand Challenge Cup shall take place on Tuesday, July 5. It was won last year by Mr. Wanhill in the “ Champion,” which he afterwards sold to Mr. H. Gunston, consequently, if the Champion wins again this year, Mr. Gunston will carry off the prize.

The last match of the season is fixed for Monday, August 1st.

The members of the club are raising a subscription to present their Treasurer (--- Wheeler, Esq.) with a handsome piece of plate in token of his past services and of the high respect they entertain for him. I have no doubt but that a large sum will be raised, as every member will feel a pleasure in contributing towards a fund for such a purpose.

The annual ball is fixed to take place on Tuesday, August 16, and the dinner on Thursday, the 18th. Her Majesty's Cup will be sailed for on Wednesday, August 17th, by Yachts of the 7th class, (above 115 tons.)

The Newmarket First Spring Meeting contrasted favourably with the Craven in all its features,—the Gurney agitators were laid to rest, the list was up to the mark, the weather glorious, and the town full. In one respect only was there a perceptible falling off, and that was in the betting, which proved flat on every race, but the Two Thousand, on which some of the regulars received a dressing they will not soon forget.

The racing commenced on Monday, April 25.–The length of the programme made an early commencement indispensable, at twelve o'clock, therefore, there was a general move for the Heath, and in another half hour, seven horses, out of eight entered, appeared at the post for a Handicap Sweepstakes of 20 sovs. each, T. Y. C.; they were, Hawk's-eye, 4 yrs. old, 7st. 9lb. ; Rover, 3 yrs. old, 6st. 71b.; c. by Mulatto, dam by Middleton, 3 yrs. old, 6st.; Menalippe, 5 yrs. old, 9st. 4lb.; Mountain Sylph, 5 yrs. old, 8st. 7lb.; Astronomer, 3 yrs. old, 6st. 7lb. ; and c. by Retainer, dam by St. Patrick, 3 yrs. old, 6st. Betting, 7 to 4 agst. Hawk's-eye, who waited on Rover all the way, came at the last moment, and beat bim by a head; the Mulatto colt and Mountain Sylphı were well up, the handicapping therefore was good. Nat being still disabled by his fractured collar bone, Chapple appeared in the Peel colours.

A Filly Stakes of 50 sovs. each, p. p., over the same course, was a middling race between two bolters, and a bad one,-Don't-say-no had the best of the race for half a mile, but rather than keep it, swerved right across the course; the Ladye of Silverkeld Well, and Eusebia, fought it out, and the former, after looking very hard at the ropes, scrambled through by half a length,—had she run straight it would have been a length. Scott rode the winner. The betting was 6 to 4 agst. Eusebia, 7 to 4 agst. Don't-say.no, and 2 to 1 agst. the winner.

A three-year-old Sweepstakes of 10 sovs. each, T. Y. C., the winner to be sold for 200 sovs. &c., was won by the Derby colt, by Wiseacre, out of Zany's dam (Rogers), beating Robin Marshal, Biron, and the following not placed :-Patchwork (a good fourth, but not placed), f. by Buzzard, out of Emma, f. by Ishmael, out of Balance (now the property of Mr. Goodman Levy, who is constantly adding to the length and badness of his string), Astronomer, and c. by Emilius, out of Benefit's dam. The Wiseacre colt ran the fastest all the way, and won by a neck-had he been less impetuous at starting, he would have won by a couple of lengths.

A second 50 sovs. stake was run across the Flat, and proved, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that John Day must have made some unaccountable blunders with his Derby nags. Eleus was beaten at Bath, “ because" Johnny Howlett was not strong enough to handle him, and“ because" there was nothing to force the running for him (so said the papers), whereas the real truth is, that he is a mere coach horse in speed, appearance, and action, and wanting in every thing that is generally supposed to constitute a race-horse. With John Day on his back, and the Balance filly to make running, he cut a most contemptible figure, and was beaten a head in a short run in, by Rosalind, a mare just good enough to run a deadheat with Iole. The betting was 6 to 4 on Eleus, and 2 to 1 agst. Rosalind.

Old Flambeau, with a doubtful leg, won a couple of races, beating Ballet (an Oaks filly), for a 20 sovs. Stake, over the D. M. in the first, and E. O. and Florence, for a £50 Plate, last three miles of B. C.,he was the favourite for both, and won easily, Robinson riding.

Three matches for 200 each were run,- the first was won in a canter by Oakley, 7st. 101b. (E. Edwards); beating Garry Owen, &st. 61b.; T. Y. C.: the second by the Duke of Rutland's f. by Dr. Syntax, out of Ruth (J. Day), beating Lord Chesterfield's f. by Muley Moloch out of Young Petuaria, by half a length, R. M., even weights : and the third by Ralph, 8st. 10lb. (Robinson); beating Proof Print, 6st. 41b. by half a length, A. F. Tuesday.- At any time the 2,000 Guineas Stakes would have ensured
