On Monday last Glenelg Agricultural Society held their first Spring Show on their grounds here. There were fourteen entries of entire horses, and a very good class of horses they were. We have so much space taken up with the all absorbing question, the rebellion, that our report of the show will have to be cut short. Following is the list of prizes awarded: Heavy, Draught -- 1st, "Garfield," owned by Trimble & Pickle; 2nd, "Lord Dufferin," owned by Trimble & Pickle. Roadster -- 1st, "Clear Grit," J.R. Trimble; 2nd, "Fox Hunter," Wm. Galbraith. Blood -- 1st, R. Freeborn. Agricultural -- 1st, W.W. Trimble, "Black Prince"; 2nd, S. Martin, "Young Duke." Canadian Draught -- 1st, R.T. McGirr; 2nd, R. Freeborn, "Young Wonder." BULLS. Durham -- 1st, James Bell, "Solway." Grade -- 1st, F.Taylor; 2nd, Thos. Brady. There was a large display of agricultural implements also on the fair ground, exhibited by Legate & Carson and others.
