The first day was fine and a large amount of grain, roots, fruit, dairy, domestic manufactures, ladies work &c., was brot to the hall and tastefully arranged by those in charge. The judging in those lines was done same day. On Friday, the second day, the weather became most unfavorable, being cold and squally, with showers of soft snow throughout the day; notwithstanding all this, there was a good turn out, but nothing like what it would had the weather been favorable. The show was in every respect a credit and a grand success, calling forth eulogies from visitors and spectators from far and near. The exhibit in the hall was large; indeed the space was quite too small to allow a proper display of the goods. Grain good was and a fine exhibit. Roots and fruit were shown in great abundance, while the quality was something remarkable. The dairy exhibit was good, and the quality fine. The ladies department was well filled with a really fine and creditable exhibit. Plants and flowers were shown in abundance, adding immensely to the appearance fo the show room. The Poultry show was a grand exhibition in itself in fact it was the best we ever saw at a local or country show. Fine horses were shown in various classes far surpassing Fairs of more pretentious expositions. There were some really fine pedigree cattle, showing that a lively interest is taken in the improvement of stock. Sheep and swine was not so largely represented. Carriages and Implements were also an attractive feature. We have already trespassed on out allotted space even without giving due credit to deserving ones. _Prize List._ /Horses./ Best Walking Team.--1st Edw. Rutledge, 2nd R Watson.
