American horses in England.

--The news by the Nova Scotian conveys the intelligence that the famous Goodwood cup, for which there is always the greatest struggle among English sporting men, has been won by the American horse Starke About five years ago Mr. Ten Broeck went to England with Lecomte, Pryor and Pryoress, to contend then for the Goodwood cup. He placed his faith in Prioress, who had an extensive American reputation, but he was disappointed, his favorite being so handicapped as to have no chance in the race. With true American perseverance he has steadily pursued the course marked out at his advent upon English soil, and at last, with an American horse, has carried off the prize so much coveted by all lovers of the turf.
