EXTRACTS FROM THE SPtRIT OF THE
The Editor of this spirited Magazine lias
recently made it tour through the W<*< ern
and Southern Slates. In the last number of
his paper he sketches, with a truly graphic
pen, the various scenes which came under
his ooservation. The following notice of the
“ Hampton” Course, at Augusta, and some
of the “rare ones” who figured on that track
at the Spring races, will doubtless prove in
teresting to many ol our readers.
“The “Hampton” Course was thus ap
propriately named in honor of a gentleman
whose ennobling talents and public spirit,
more than bis princely fortune, have placed
him at the head of the Turf in Carolina and
Georgia. It is laid out directly east of the
city of Aug sta, at the foot of Broad-street,
the straight run in front bordering on the Sa
vannah river; the Stands are not a mile dis
tant from the centre of the business popula
tion. The entire field occupied is so level
that Rip Van Winkle could have spied his
vrotv’s cat in any part of if. The track,
eliptica! in shape, is laid out on the most ap
proved plan, having straight parallel sides of
a quarter of a mile each, while the two ends, of
equal length, describe a half circle. Inside of
tha public track is a very superior training
track; both have been carefully graded on the
plan of the Union Course, Long Island, so that
in rounding the semi-circles, a horse may sup
port his weight on all his feet alike. The
whole is surrounded by a substantial sealed
plank fence, 10 feet high; between the two
tracks is a ditch, upon the edge of which are
placed posts three feet high, surmounted with
rails. The earth removed from the ditch was
used to face the training track; the luxuriant
Nut grass upon the running track has been
carefully preserved, and has imparted to it:
great firmness and elasticity.
The Hotel for the Club and its guests i
fronts Broad-street, the rear commandidg a j
full view of the course; it is a handsome]
building of two stories. Opposite the Judges’ i
Stand is the one appropriated to the Ladies,]
the Members of the Club and their families.
It is about SO feet by 35, and two slories high.
The lower story contains a large saloon, with
a bar 20 feet bv 35, and two smaller apart
ments for the Officers of the Club. The sec
ond story has an open piazza in front and
rear, running its whole length, while the large
saloon is elegantly fitted up for the exclusive
accommodation of Ladies. About 60 yards
west of the Club Stand is the large Citizens’
Stand; it is 120 by 35 feet, and 2 storied,
containing an ordinary, bar, etc. with a broad
piazza in front. All the buildings are hand
some, and well adapted to answer the pur
pose intended. The enterprising proprietors
(Messrs. Glascock Lacy,) in making ar
rangements for the accommodation of their
visitors, have not been unmindful of the prin
cipal attraction—the Horses. Roomy and
convenient stables are erected adjacent to
the track, and comfortable quarters arranged
for their attendants. In fact, tliev have left
nothing undone to make “ The’ Hampton”
quite the crack course ofthe State, and if their
liberal and judicious expenditure be not a
profitable investment, then the people of:
Georgia and Carolina “are not the men we I
took them for,” that’s all.
Emily, by F.milus, out of Elizabeth, hv
Rainbow, was bred by His late Majesty Wil
liam IV. at the Royal Stti I at Hampton
Court, and imported into South Carolina by
her present owner, Col. Wads. Hampton, of
Columbia. She is a beautiful bay, with a
star and stripe, about 15 hands one inch, and
presents a most striking resemblance to Ack
erman’s sttnerb colored engravings of the
Queen of Trumps. Her head is faultless, a
perfect non pa rid, and her eye and face beams
with intelligence. Her limbs arc as finely
modelled as those of the fair representative of
70,” and her beautiful pastern joints remind
one the delicate and well turned ancle of la
petite Augusta! Her proportions are almost
perfect; her shoulder is broad and oblique.
Tunning tveli hack, and she is also very fine
across the loins. Her hocks, knees and feet
are also good, especially the first, which
come well down to the ground. The only
objectionable feature about her is her fore
feet, tlic toes of which point out slightly, so
that she is occasionally liable to cut. This
aside site as game a looking filly as can he]
seen in a years’ travel.
Gcroie was bred by our old friend James
Bathgate, Esq. of West Farms, near this city,
and was purchased and taken out to Georgia,
in his yearling form, bv John G. Winter,
Esq. of Augusta, who sold him In Hammond
Lowell, his present owners. He is a r.hes
rut, with white hind feet, standing 13 —S, and
was got by Henry out of Vixen by Eclipse;
his grandam was the dam of Col. Crowell’s
Robin Hood , one of the speediest horses that
■ever made a track on Long Island. Gerow
favors Post Boy very much about the head,
back and loin. His neck is disproportionate
ly long, otherwise lie resenables most of Hen
ry’s get. He has plenty of bone and muscle,
nn<s bis thighs and arms are uncommonly
broad, thick, and long. Me has not so great
a turn of speed as might be expected from
ill is stock, hut his game is undoubted ; in all
liis races, public or private, thsre lias been no
give back about him.
Charlotte Russe was bred bv Mr. Benja
min Moody, near Chesterfield, C. H. Virgin
ia, who sold her bv the side of her dam, for
$1 ,000. She was purchased, when 2 years
old, of Col. Heth, of Va. by her presen own- j
•er., lor .$5,000, and derives her name from a .
-singular circumstance that took place in this
city at the time of the sale. The parties;
•were dining at Oebnomco’s, and while dis- !
•cussing their dessert, the arrangement was;
made. At this moment a favorite dish, term
ed “ Charlotte Russe ,” was placed upon the
table, which, by the bye, as much resembles
another, called “ Trifle ” as the veritable Char-;
lottc Itusse does her own sister. The affini-!
ty betvveeo the dishes and the sisters was re-!
marked, and from this suerfjestion Charlotte i
ilusse derives her name. She is a chesnut, I
with a star, and her near bind foot white;!
her coat is as rich and glossy as satin—per
fectly “Arabian-like in its texture,” She is ;
much taller than Trifle, being 13 hands 2 in- !
ches; (Trifle measures but 14 bands 3 inches;) j
Charlotte has a game head set on to a very
prettily a relied neck ; her eye is bold and in
telligent, but her ears are a little out ofkeep
*ng, being too large; they are placed far
apart, however, a sure mark of unflinching i
•courage. Her shoulder blades are lonm and !
broad, the points inclining well hack; indeed,;
in this respect, more than in anv other, she
jirongly resembles her sister. Her chest is ,
of a good depth, being sufficiently roomy to :
give the greatest freedom to her respiratory !
powers, and from the point of the elbow,
which extends far back, her barrel is exceed
ingly well ribbed out. When stripped, v*u
discover a singular depression across the
loins extending (or five or six inches from the
union of the hones of the loins with those of
the haunch, but with asaddle or her clothes
on, it would hardly he remarked ; it does not!
appear in the slightest degree to afiect her
strength or style of going. But her finest
points remain to be discussed ; such a hip.
thigh, stifle, and hock, is “good for weak
eves”—we have never seen anv thing finer.
Front the hip joint, or whirl hone, to the
stifle, and from the stifle to the hock she has
immense length, the whole repsenting too,
an extraordinary development of muscle. — j
The propelling power, which enables the hare
or the grey hound, as well as the horse, to
move with a great degree of velocity, is cen
**.'ed in their hinder quarters; and in pro
portion to their strength there* will be the
impulse which drives the whole miss for-
j IV arJ. We saw Charlotte taking her exer
cise one morning in company with Monarch,
John Guedron, Steele, Benbow, Target,
Hard Heart, and a dozen others; there were
several turfman present. Mr. Stewart, Char
lotte’s trainer, ordered Jem to gallop around
and “let her come” up the straight run home.
He did so, and as she dashed past. Ham
mond, who was looking on, quite forgetful in
his admiration of her, his own “ strum” on
the backside, broke out with “ Don’t she
move like a bird? She laps her hind feet
past her ears two feet every pop!” There
was a great deal of truth in Hammond’s al- !
most unconscious remark : she has such pro- ‘
digious strength in her hips and thigiis, that, I
in active exercise, she looks as if she would ‘
throw herself on her head at every jump.
She moves with too much ease to tire her
self, and indeed “ grace is in all her steps;” i
up to the date of this last race of her’s in the I
the mud, the last quarter of any heat she has
run has been faster than the first. Her pas- j
terns are rather too straight, hut her cannon !
bones are short and flat, and her feet re- ]
OUR RAIL ROADS.
We copy from the Savannah Georgian a !
statement, showing the progress and condi- !
lion of the Central Railroad, which is highly
We understand that a Locomotive and j
cars are running (hr some 20 miles, from Sa- j
vannah ; that on 56 miles the grading is com
pleted and ready for the rails; that the road
is under contract to a point 69 miles from Sa
vannah ; am! that 13 1-2 mil • further will be
let on the sth of April. So that the road bids
fair to be completed in two or three years.
The Monroe Railroad is also rapidly pro
! greasing. We have just been along the line,
and can state from our own knowledge, the
‘ condition of the work. The amount of labor
j expended is prodigious. A person who had
| never seen any thing ofthe sort, could hardly
be made to believe what deep excavations
j and high embankments have been made.
, The grading of the road is now nearly
completed, amt a considerable portion of the
timber has been delivered. Moreover the
iron is on the wav, and it is expected will be
delivered in Macon during the present season.
So that long before Christmas, we expect to
see cars running the whole distance, between
Macon and Forsyth.
This road is to form the connecting link
between the Central Railroad at one end, and
the Atlantic and Tennessee Railroad at the
other; and will be of vast importance to the
prosperity of all Central Georgia.

Horses, at all distances, arranged in Tables—a perfect
List of Stallions for 1838—Table of Winning and
Trotting Horses—and a complete List of English
Winning Horses, at all distances, during the year 1837.
In the Lists of Winning Horses the reader is present
ed at one view with the age, color, sire, dam. and
owner of each horse, with the weight carried, the
time, the horses beaten, the date of the race, and the
course, with the folio of the page specified in which in
the paper the detailed report of the race may be found.
The first number of the volume contains the Table
of Four Mile Winners in 1837. uniform with which the
other Tables of Winners at three, two, and one mile
heats will appear. In the List of Stallions is given the
name, co’or, pedigree, owner or a?en’’s address, and
terms, of all the distinguished Stallions in the Union,
the whole comorising a mass of intelligence to be found
in no other publication in this country, and which com
bines everv leading feature embraced hv the Stud
Book, the Turf Register, and tho Raring Calendar.
The English Turf will claim onr constant attention,
and every thing relating to it will be carefully colled
from the Bri.ish Sporting Magazines and papers, likely
to contribute to the interest or information ofthe Ame
rican Breeder and Ttttfinan. The Snorting Depart
ment of the paper will entbrncc the following subjects,
respecting which erery possible information will be
The American and English Turf: Tmnorta'ions and
Sales of Blood Stock at home and abroad ; Essays on
Breeding and Training; Racing and Trotting Chal
lenges ; Racing Appointments; Sweepstakes and
Matches ; Annual Lists of American and English
Winning Horses; On Dits in Snorting Circles ; Pedi
grees and Performances of Distinguished Horses;
Hunting, Shooting, and Fishing ; Pedestrian, Aquatic
and other Sports.
To relieve the paper from the monotony which might
he objected to, if Sporting Intelligence formed the ex
clusive object of attention, a large space will be devoted
each week to the affairs of tho Drama, and to light and
elegant literature. The interests of the American and
English Stage are so closely and inseparably con
nected, that we shall, as heretofore, take cognizance
of both. The Spirit of the Times finds its way into
every Green Room of the Union, and has so many cor
respondents among the profession, as to havo acquired
a character for authentic, exclusive, and earlv Green
Room Intelligence, not exceeded by anv journal what
In the Literary Depatment the Editor will aim only
at culling from the English and American magazines,
the choicest flowers of wit and sentiment, and with the
appliances at his command, he doubts not to make this
portion of his columns gay, graceful, and spirited. And
to give zest to the whole, the Editor will aim to crowd
into his columns all the Fun and Frolic of the town,
the Good Things of his friends, and the Best Jokes of
his brother Editors. In fine, he hopes to make his
pqper the g yest and liveliest in the world ; yielding to
none in the character of its gleanings from elegant lite
