THE ASSEMBLY ROOMS ON THE RACE GROUND.

The Race Ground is between seven and eight miles from Madras, and near to St. Thomas's Mount, which in this view appears on the right of the Assembly Rooms. The races are supported by English gentlemen resident in Madras, and its neighbourhood. This amusement takes place in the cool season, when the ladies of the settlement are invited to a splendid ball.
