EXTRACTS FROM THE SPtRIT OF THE TIMES. 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- ] markably good. OUR RAIL ROADS. We copy from the Savannah Georgian a ! statement, showing the progress and condi- ! lion of the Central Railroad, which is highly gratifying. 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.

PORTER, EDITOR. THE eighth \ olunrie of this publication, (Lein the third of the New Series,) commenced on the 17th of February, 1838. To maintain the character of the work as an interesting and authentic Sporting Journal, and, if possible, to elevate it. and give to its contents additional value, is the sole design of the Edit or. No ma'erial change is contomplafed, save in the mechanical part of the paper, and in this particular the Editor believes that the Spirit of the Times will bear a comparison with the most elegant periodicals in the country. • The present, like the preceding volume, will contain a complete American Racing Calendar, for the cur rent. year. That this Ca'endar may be full and accu rate. a'l the more important Race Meetings throughout the Union will he attended by the Editor in person, or by Reporters employed for the express purpose ; and every exertion wilt be made, by a very large and expen sive Correspondence, to obtain, as heretofore, early re ports of all other meetings. This volume will also contain Alphabetical Lists of American winning 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 given : 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 ever. 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 rature, but resting its clairns for support mainly upon the Sporting Department, whit.h wili be made as va luable and comprehensive as labor and expense can make it. No Local Agents arc employed by the Proprietors— gentlemen wishing the paper* wili therefore remit by Mail.
