This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

BATTER8EA ROYAL: A Frizk Lincoln and Lbiobbtzr Rah. 


Thii famoQ* nm, bred by Mr. Lynn, ia bjra aoa 
of Mr. Sandf'a sr-gninea ebsep, the propntr of 
Mr. F. Spencer, out of Mr. Lynn's Silrer Medal 
ewe of hii own breeil, Bud tbftt took tbe medal in 
the extn claia on the last occasion of the ihow 
being held in Baker Street -in 1S6]. 

BBttenea Royftl in 1862 took 'tha first priie of 
£l5 u the beat ahearling raro in the Other Lonjj- 
vool elaia at the Battenaa Mectinj:; of the Royal 
Affricoltaral Society; and in tbe iams Mason the 
lirat prize of £10 at the Stamford Shov of the 
NorthamptonBhire Society; with another first prize 
of £5, and the extra prize of £10 as the beat ram 
of anv age at thr Leicet ter Meeting of tbe Sparkeii- 
hoe Fanners* Clnb. In 1B63 he BftBin took the 
Grit price of £20 at the Worcester Meeting of the 
Itoyal Agricultural Society, and on all these four 
more famous occaiionf we met with Batteriea in 
our trarda. He haa also, however, been aa succesa- 
folaboot home, but of theae merely local doioga wn 
hftTa DO record. At Batteraea Mr. Lynn took all 
the three prizea for shearling rams, and at Wor- 
cester he beat the Lincolns outright, with two firat 
priiei and a aecond. 

His Leicester and Lincoln croaa, uniting as it 
doMqoaUty and symmetry with size, is very popular 
in certain diatricta ; and at on« of the Central 


Farmera' Club diaouaaione, a year or two eince, 
when the suMect tamed on the growth of Inatre 
wool, Mr. Ward, of Drayton, near Rockingham, 
aaid : " The difficnlty which they hod to deal with 
WBB in obtaining a proper soil for growing luatre 
wool. It seemed very extraordinary, but it waa a 
fact, that long-wool might be produced frum a 
district extending for 70 miles, and that after that 
it unavoidably became short. The Leicester and 
Lincoln sheep were almost the only sheep that 
could produce the kind of wool that Mr. Anderton 
thought they ought all to endeavour to produce. 
He mast say that being in the habit of going into 
Lincolnshire io tbe spring, he found better aheep 
at the Lincoln fairs than anywhere else. Within 
the last throe or four years he had aeen three or four 
hundred tegs pitched in a pen and sold at three 
guinsM B-piece, Many tegs in Lincolnshire 
weighed 14 stones, and aomeaamuchaa 17 atones in 
April.when thevwereayear old. Hehimaelfhadno 
particular breed ; his aheep were Leiceaters, and he 
touched them up slightly with the beat Lincolns." 
Mr.' Lynn ia not merely known bv hia Long- 
wool sheep, as he has also a good Sborthora 
herd ; and one of hie cows will be fonnd credited 
in the preaent number with great things both at 
Birraingham and Islington. 


"Rabbits," sayaJohnaon in one of hia many and 
uufnl worka on the dog and tbe gun, " are beat con- 
fined to a wuren, for Uiey are a sad nuisance when 
nQmeniiitia the ODcloatuea. They are not worth 
theipoitman'a attention, and are more destructive 
to die bmac tluut rU otbai gam* pat together," 

This ia well pnt any way, and perhapa there is 
no better plan for keeping down such a nuiaance 
than a good hnngry ferret and a quick terrier, aa 
ao beautifully depicted in Mr. Anadell'a moraoDt 
of victory.

retroapeot, the Frofeaeor (ibid, p. 640) arrived at tbeea 
eonelBaioM, tIi., that "Tbe moat valuable manuring 
aubatancea tor graaa land ate the foUowiug : Fiiat, nitro- 
gen, either in tbe ahape of ammoniacal aalta, or in that 
of nitratei, end organic mittera capable of producing on

applicatlQn of amniaTiiaoal manarei alone, ve ihoulj de- 
tariorate the qoalitf of tha heihago, and within a Tcrf 
fev aeatoD* there would be no terf Urge lm[iietaion 
vliiblB Id iti qaantltf. The produce of the nnmanared 
portion ot the land at Rotbimited baa amonnted lo 
ftboat 1 ton 6 cirti. The ammoniacil ailla alone hare 
not increaied the produce nearly io mnch ai when given 
ia coDJunction with minarala. The produce in the taller 
caaa ia nearly treble that in the former. The addition of 
ammonia even to fanu-jard mannra prodooet a atriking 
effect. The latter containi but little ammonia in com- 
pariaon with the amonnt of mineral matter and car- 
bonaeeona matter there preaent. To dUpoae at once of 
Uu oarbonaoMDB iDbttaucci — organic maltera free from 
nitrogen, and containing chief); cacboa and hjrdrogen 
with Bome oiygi-n — I wonld tiy that In Mr. Lawta'a

The Profeuor wat itroniilr Empreaaod with the dif- 
ferent appearance of the graaaea, at Rothamited, to which 
ttrm mannre and ammoDiacil aalta had been long np- 

Slled. You wilt notice ha remarked, " In the latter ■ 
ifferencd in the colour : tha grasa ia a deeper grrcn ; 
it ii also lomewhat higher, and there ia more of it. 
There is also thii remarkahla difference, that whereia in 
the uamanured portion ire hare grent •arietj', a Urge 
mixture of plants, through the application of am- 
moniacal salta the herbage iKcomei more aimple. When 
ammoniacil salta bare been applied io conjunction with 
mixed mtnerata, the effect ia lerr ilriking; indeed the 
quantitj of produce ia double that deri ted from ammonia 
alone. An eitra quantiljr of ammonia increaies the 
prodace to a «erf remarkable extent, and it farther ro- 
dueea the number of apeciea Of plants, poihing forward 
certain gralKS, to tlic eacluaion of almoat erery ntber. 
Among the first to diaappaar are the ieguminoai plants,

eTen though a aapplj of miueral matter may be present, 
and theaa are among tha more QBltitiie of our herb*. 
On Ibe whole acre plot thus treated. It wonld, I tbink,

" ThB effects produced by nilritea leem in tome de- 
gree to differ from thoae of ammonia. Nitrate of soda 
does not so maleriilly affect the legnminoua tribe of 
plsott aa do ammoniacil salts. As to mineral mittere, 
phosphate and alk«lini! sabstincea may be fairly taken 
together; for ttaoie plants which are itimalated by 
phosphates are also benefited by alkdine naQures, and 
more especially salts of patish. The action of mixed 
mineral manarei, compoaed of phosphate of lime in a 
aolable Gundition and aalta of potash, an the whole 
elorer tribe of ptinls is lery remarkibte. Under its

" Returning now to the subject of the improTement 
of putures, let ns tnppose that the land hs* been well 
drained, that it is moderately porous, and that there ia 
a fair depth of soil; bnt I hat the prodnce la scanty, and 
the hcrbige not lery good. How ire these delects to 
be remedied ? can both be dealt with at once 1 In moat 
oases we ooght, I think, to endeaTonr to improie to 
some extent at least the quaBty of oar herbage, and at 
the same time try to get not an excciiiTS but a remn- 
neniiTC smunnt of prodnce. If we look loo much to 
quality, perhaps the means ot effecting Improrment may 
be considered by practical men too eipensiie ; on the 
ottier hind, if we look entirely lo qnantily, the qnalit; 
of the herbsge may he much deteriorated : and tbe re> 
snlt win be remnneratiTe only to tho man who sell bay 
in the neighbourhood of large towni, but not to tita 
consuming teniut or to the landlord. 

*' But, Bnt of all, we ought to ascertiin whether a 
pasture requires liming or not. As this it frequently 
the csaa, and is lime or marl Is a cheap minnra, before 
we go to any great expense we ought to settle thb poiat 
Lime, which has done mirrel* on some desoriptlon ot 
grass land, on others has produced little or no effect. 
Tlie geological formation ot tbe racks of a diatriet Is not 
always a good guide in deciding tlie question whether 
land requires liming or not. I bare met with maoy 
cases in which lime has done an Immense amount ot 
good, although the land w» situste on the oolite for- 
matian, abounding in limeatona rock. In tuchragioiu 
Reldi ire often to ba found in perminent pasture com- 
poied of cliys ot traniportalion, which hare not irlKn 
from the rocks on which they are placed. Such toils, 
though deposited on limestone rockt, may hiTe been 
formed from other rocks deficient in lime. Such may 
be the caes CTtn though the limeatone may crop out 
upon the surfice ; and anyone who waa not acqailntod 
with the special character of the lind night iiy that no 
lima could he wanted, tedng that It came up to the anr- 
fsce; yet the actual suit miy, notwitlutanding theaa 
appearances, be rery materially benefited by liming. 

' ' Fortunately, this Is a question which may be nadilf 
settled. Let a little at the aoil be put in a amall cap or 
sneer, and be miied with spirits of salt (muriatic add). 
If it efferreace strongly, an abundance of lime ia pit- 
sent 1 and io that case the land reqnirel no Umtng. 
lie abtence of efferreaeenoe, howersr, ts not alwayi an 
iodieatian that the land is defioiest in lima. SoU maf 
be in a oondition la which It is not esaily attacked bj 
common apirita of salt. In that oaaa no effinTeaoasice 
wonld take plaoe, and yet anfflcient lima may be pr«- 

may be the beat drcasing; for then we not only apply 
lime, bnt we also add to tbe land a msterial whieh gooa- 
rally ia rich In potash and soda. Marl, moreorer, ia 
Tiluablo as an abaorber of fertlliiert, whether derircd 
from tbe atmuaphera or from the mannre applied to the 
laud. To enconnge the growth of good heritage, a* 
well aa Increase the quantity of the prodnce, a lifaisral 
maanrlng should be giren. Land which it so pOTOoa 
that in excess of water will not rem^n on It la wet 
seasons for any greit length of time, and which In dry 
weather can by eapilliry ittraction bring np moiatnro

lecture looked very like going alT in another bndleUoor- 
and-shnttlecock match amongat the eavana nt tlic green 
table. But, fortnnaiely, Mr. Morton had taken, aa the 




ttrongest print in lili ipeKh, > qoestion that ume of hfi 
horen conld not sit qnietlf under. In bet, like manj of 
tbe gentlemeu who volnnt^er to taltc igricnltorc at the 
Society of Arti, Mr. Morton nude a fierce onslai^ht 
agiinit the implement prize sjttem of the Rojil Agricul- 
tural Society. To ttate that ve had hard manj of the 
argomenti here brought to besTi on man; prcvioni occa- 
liona in the same cougeiuBl itmoiphcre, can he no alight 
to Mr. Morton'i energetic Uio of these veapoQi, while we 
shall certainly not deny him any further advantage to be 
obtained from their employment. He eaya then, by way 
of illustration: "A> regai^ man; machines whose work 
cannot be expressed or represented by numbers — the 
plough for ciunple — the prizeman wins, the reat are na- 
wbere. There never probably was a more marked ex- 
ample of this than at the Warwick Show, where a new 
man appeared u ploagbwright, and took many of the 
principal prizes. His plough, a good and well-made tool, 
aa all of Messrs. Homsby's manolactnrc are, pressed the 
furrow slice tighter home, and left a higher crest than the 
others. Its work gratified the eye^the judges pro- 
nounced it best — and their decision was an altogether ei- 
cessiTC advantage given to the firm. No doubt a tightly- 
laid furrow-slice is, for some purpotea, advantageous ; but 
■11 the teadeocj of late has been to regard tillage as a 
smashing up ; and where the land tilled lies on a drained 
Bubsoil, the rougher the surface is the better for its future 
tilth. Bkit it is in illustration of the ezccssiva character 
of tho prize system that, whereas the decision at Warwick 
placed Messrs. Homsby on a pedestal, while Messrs, 
Howard and Ransomc, and others, were, so far as the 
Society was concerned, in the case of that partieular com- 
petition, nowhere, I do not suppose there arc ten ptaetical 
tillage farmen who will ray that it matters one penny per 
acre per annum whether Ilomsby's. or Howard's, or Ran- 
somes' plough ia adopted as the implcmeut of tbe Gum." 
For the s^ of the aigiunent, let u* assume that the 

Soality is as Hr. Morton puts it, and that llomsby, 
owai^, and Ransome are in no way superior the one to 
the oUier. But what then F Soea Mr. Martou remember 
that previous to the establiahment of the Royal Fiiae 
B^atem the Ranaome* had it nearly all their own way 
with their ploughs, until the Society fostered and developed 
tbemanyimproveinentsof theirrivalsF Who siaee have won 
so many pretuiuma foi plooghs as the Howards F or, doe* 
Mr. Morton think that the Horasbys would have " gone 
on refining" without the inSnence of the priie system to 
iuoite and reward their eiperiaients F Mr. Morton pro- 
DBedi to declare, backing his opinion by a few iaolated 
saaea, that the prize Systran has now no ii^nenee on salea ; 
bat we should prefer to meet him on tho geutral ijueetion. 
Let him aak any of the exhibitors at the Bath and West of 
England meetings, which he quotes so approvingly, 
whether " the trade" has ever been so good since the 
prizes have been abolished at those Shows? Mr. R. C. 
Ronsome, who supported Mr. Morton's views, declared in 
the conrse of the evening that " ho was quite sure it was 
not the temptation of prizes that stimulated manuhc- 
turers to bring forward improved machinery." But bow 
cornea it, then, that Mr. Raoaome's own Firm baa 
ceased to exhibit iu the West of England unee the 
priiea for implementa hava been abandoned ? Mr. 
MorUin muutami " there need be no fear that the shows 
wonld dwindle, though prizes were abandaned." On the 
oontraty, we believe that the interest of sueh occasions 
would probably die out with the lack of sueh a stimulus, 
while it might posaibly be to the passing interest of 
certain established firms that these meetingi should decay. 
Of course, one gteat consequence of the prize syitan 
shonld be more opposition ; for, aa it baa made many a 
man, it may make many a one yet. If one large Uonse 
dedinea entering in the West since the premiums have 

been withheld, ft 'a only fs&' to aamme tbti ^ils Vim 
wonld do the same when the Royal Society is reduced to 
the like insipid level. Another argument, as advanced 
by Mr. Morlou, would really seem to be leading to this : 
" There is one farther consideration affecting the imple- 
ment trade generally, to be urged against it. It adds coo- 
siderably to tilt cost of agriciUtnial machines. One fina 
says it has spent £30,000 during the Society's meetings 
up till now, in preparing and exhibiting for priiea. 
Another estimates its eipeqditnre at £20,000; a third 
says the disorganization of the work, the spoilinK of the 
best men, and the actual expenditure ace together wt 
estimate. Who has paid these large sums ? Xot these 
£rms, but their costomets. The cost of a mai^ine ia 
made up of the material it is made of, the labour spent on 
it, and a whole class of items which come under tluj 
general designation of waste cbargei. These waste charges 
amount to no leas than 30 per cent, of the selhng price, 
and the eipenditure at the Agiicnltnnl Society's shows ia 
a principal one of them," The simple meaning of all this 
is, lliat the more an implement is advertised the more it 
must cost the purchaser ; whereas, we had fondly 
imagined it waa aomething of a commercial principle, that 
the moiegoodsaman sold the chewier bo could adl them; 
and we are quite ready to admit ibcn is no finer adver- 
baement than winning a priie. As to the expense of going 
aboDt th» country, we take it this would be very mu^ tho 
same, whether there be premiums or not, the more espe- 
cially if Mr. Morton's views ware adopted as to Trials Jod 
Reports. There is no doubt, however, that the most direct 
way to eurtail these terrible eipenHi wonld be to do awaj 
wiUi the prises, and then with the shows, and suffer tbose 
who have reached to the top of the tree to rest in -gmoe 
and quietncsa where they are. 

" Let bim take esstles who has ne'er a groit." 

Such arguments as these were, of course, easily 
answered. Colonel Challoner had but to cite " the first 
meeting of the Royal Agricultuaral Society, at Oiford, 
where the number of implements exhibited was eonsidier- 
ably under 150, and aU of the coarsest description 
manuhcture. He asked what had brought the implei 
of England to the perfection in which thej were a 
present time F He submitted it wsi owing to the aystetn 
of prizes adopted by the Royal Agricultural Society. Hs 
had been brought to this conclusion from his observatioQS 
as a member of the Implement Committee of that Society, 
Let them compare the position of implement-makers now 
and twenty years ago. The progress had been enormous ; 
and he thought that, without the prize system, the manii- 
factm^in would not have been gnided to tbe prodoction 
of tbe claas of implements roily required, 'Fbtn wen 
well-known names who had made a high reputation 
everywhere, and it would perhaps be veiy agreeable for 
those gentlemen to rest span their laurels, with the 
knowledge that everybody wonld buy tbeir implements ; 
but what was to become of the humble implement- 
maker — tbe man of small means F lie had no chance 
of competing agaiast those great men, except by the help 
of the prize ayatem. It was the great object ol tlie 
Royal AgrieoUnral Society to bnng forward lising 
talent." This ia but the enunciation of a great truth, 
founded on the oleareat experience ; so true and so dear, 
that one almost tires of being continually compelled to give 
it in answer. Then, Hr. Robert Smith, in allusioa to tiu 
Bath and West of England Society and tbe prize system, 
spoke with the eipenence of a West of England man, 
when he said " he knew the history of that matter, and 
he believed it had been occasioned hy undue dictation on 
the part of some membera of that Society, to whom the 
CoDncil gave way, and the oonaequenoe was that the pnMt 
were discontinne'l ; but he added that a lu ' '

Ai prorii^ the Dae»nip]ed proaperity which hai at'

the high paaition which the aodety hai attomed, it needa

the aodety waa founded, when the entnei compriacd 
a head of cattle, 21 pern of aherai. IZ of pigi, and IM

—or dose opon 1,OOU. Howerer sangoine may bavB

uliEipatians are much more than realiud. Certainly

en^t uerer to have been let oat of the faimiteida, 
where, during the past twelve months, they had pro-

the deaervedlj Ugh positian that Darlington has cou- 
tinned to hold aa the metropolis of one of the fineit dia- 
tiicta in the kingdom for the rearing of cattle ever since 
the time when the Collinge made their laoeessfol lUiKi 
■s tmly ac ientific adepts in the matter of judicious or in- 
genionicroaaing. It is admitted, by all who had theplca' 
•are of witncMing the preseat coUcction, that it very Ui

attracting many &eah faces, amongat wbich none aJfordel 
to the Society's friends more real gratification than that 
of Lord Wcnlock, whose eminence in sheep-rearing hai 
long been immovably eitahliahed. To the some cause is 
tiBCEable the very la^ incicaso in the number of cntriM 
of poultcT. And here it will not be out of place to notica 
that the Society appears to enjoy ven healthy patronage — 
the sabitantial support of many of the district nobility 
and gentry, who are jealoDs of the fair fame which 
Darlington has attained as an agricultural emporium for 
the North of England. No less thsn s dozen or so ailver 
cups have been added to the mancr-prizcs this year, the 
donors being Mr. Slap, Mr. Wateihouse, Mr. Jos. Fcaae, 
Mr. J. W, Pease, Mr. Ed. Pease, Mr. Jaa. Thompson, 
Mr. Ed. Backhouse, Mr. H. K. Spark, Mr. R. ThompsoD, 
Mr. Jao. Ilarria, Mr. A. Peeac, and othera. 

To Darlington was specially reserved a cross-bred 
01, which would have done infiuite credit to any other 
ahow, and not improbably woold have cauaed to tremble 
on their hoofs the proud winners of the trophies held 
out in the Sooth. Mr. Stewart, of Aberdeen, the veir 
euterpriiing Scotchman, who baa diatiuguiahed himself 
not the less at Smith£eld than at DarUugton, succes' 
aively year alter year for the past few years, had succeeded 
in twice attaining the principal place of honour here, 
by having been declared b^ the judges to bate hrou^t, 
from the granite hilla of hia native county, wnjmftlQ aur- 
paasing anything in the show ; and he hod only to gain 
that place once more, to entitle him to the gold challenge 
vase, worth 100 guineaa. He haa at leaat achieved that 
at which he aspired, and every person who had the plea- 
sure of handling the splendid animal with which he 
won the mnch-eoveled prize, admite the jnstice of his 
elaia and of the jnd^' award. It waa a really noble 
beast, measuring nine mches more in girth than even ooe 
belonging to Mr. J, 'W. Pease, with which the latter 
intended to discomfit the "canuy" man. It was calcq- 
lated to weigh BO stunea mare than any other beaat in 
the show. The fieah on its ribs was as Seiiblo at India- 
rubber, your hand dipping down to the palm aa yon 
■ought to understand how it waa poaaible to bring an 
animal to such maturity. Its breast we warrant wonld 
bear compariaoa with any beaat in the land — low, broad, 
and fall, with abort neck, armpita matchleia, hips firm 
and laree, flanks grand, and back broad, straight, and 
even. let in some points it waa deScient. Where, 
however, can you point out an animal, however inr- 
paaaingly good, that is not P From the romp to the 
bucks he was short and rather delved, and the top of 
hit tboulders would have ipven more gtneral t"'-' 




tion had they biA i thicker coBtinn of flesh. With IhJB 
animal Mr. Stetrart not only iron the greateat troph; 
the Bodet; had In offer, but the iirat prize in hii clau of 
crou-bred oxen not dceeding £6nr jam oH, where he 
beat Sir W. C. Trerdyon, who had a Tei? uiee tcTel beaat 
which, b; the way, wu one of the three that, b; the acci- 
dental giving vsf on Thnrada; of the flcMr of the jet uu- 
finilhcd building where tho thaw wai held, suddenly fell, 
^ng with a dozen men or A'j.who at the tijne were 
eianmuDg the prize cattle, into some cellars underneath, 
eight or ten feet in depth ; one gentleman, Mr. Robert 
Kohwn, who occupies a lar^ fann at Newton- Morrell, 
receiving a compound froctnje of the right thigh, and 
five others sn»tiiining severe cala and broisei in varioUB 
parts of the body. But for this untoward event, the 
anecesa of the ahow would have been complete, as at the 
time the pay-taker was taJiing ai much as 20/. in the 
hour, in shillingn, for admisaion. It is, however, a cunao- 
latiou to think that the accident was not attended with 
tatnl rcaults, considering its frightful nature, and the bet 
especially Ihat three huge prize bnllocks fell in such un- 
pleasant proiimity, and in anch dangerous confosioa. 

But, returning to Mr. Stewart's wonderfol oi ; it waa 
the winner also of the tr^esmen'i cup, on the same 
ground that it obtained the challenge cup, namely, that it 
was the best oi in the show. Air. Stewart waa eiiccesafol 
in gaining a flrst prize, too, with a craas-brcd heifer, rising 
three years, where he had a formidable competitor, as 
may be judged by his taking the second to Mr. Jas. 
Reid, of Greystone, Scotland, The ncit most suceessFnl 
cihihitor was Mr. J. VI. Pease, who not only got the 
tenant-farmers' enp valne £10, with a very valuable Sh*t- 
horn 01, which was perhaps as good in condition as Mr. 
Stewart's, but was not so bulky, but with his tidy white 
Shartborn heifer under three yeara old, which achieved 
for him at York last week so mach fame, and won for 
him the choicest hmreb offered by the society there, ob- 
taining the first prize In her clasa and the tradcamen's cup 
an being the best heifer iu the show. The same gentle- 
man cihibited the beat eroaa-bred heifer, which waa in a 
condition which did him infinite credit, and he bad the 
good fortune to carry off also a second prize. Mr. Reid 
was first amongst erosa. bred huUocba under three years old; 
first also amongst Scotch beasts, the whole of the pure 
breeds being agglomerated in a mass — his waa a Galloway, 
and it is no mean honour which he achieved in this class, 
considering that there were no less than ten eutrics, and 
that he was matched against foea u formidable as the Duke 
of Cleveland and Sir VI. C. Trevelyan. He was first also 
anoDgat Scotch heifer*, beating Mqor Gonter, and 

eight othcn, whom the gallant M^or led to the attack 
upon the head or a rcpreaentative of the Highland clan of 
that ilk; while Mr. Rcid, second with a good eross-brcd 
tour yean old heifer, succumbing in thia instance to Mr. 
Pease ; and second with a three-year-old of the same 
apecies, here having to give waylo his countryman, Mr, 

Sir. W. C. Trevelyan got four seconds — Shorthorn 
heifer, fonr years old; crosa bullock of the same age; cross 
cow, and Scotch steer, being beaten in the respective 
clasaea by no one beyond the prize withheld by .Mr. 
Stewart's oi, of which we have said snlTicient, and 
by Mr. Reid. The other aucceasea were the follow- 
ing:— Mr. T. P. Outhwaile, Goldtbro', Shorthorn 
oxen, three years old, first; Mr. Richard Abba, West- 
holme, Winstonc, second; Mr. R. Gcll, Grimstone Lodge, 
who distinguished himself at one show by winning the 
GoU Cup, but who this year ranks only second for three- 
year-old Shorthorn heifers; Mr. Thomaa Willis, Manor 
Houae, Carpcrby, Bedale, first. Shorthorn cow ; Jlr. John 
Fryer, Cnlterick, second ; Mr. C. L. Wood, aeeoud, cross- 
hred ateer, rising three yeara, Mr. Reid obtaining pre- 
cedence over him; and Major Gonter, whose only laurel 
wc have already indicated. 

The sheep, we have already stated, constituted a very 
remarkable and attractive dis]ilay, and were a principal 
feature ofthe occasion. Iieicestcr shcarUngs: first, Mr. 
John Greaves, Clotherholmc, Kiimn; second, Mr. Francis 
Riekell, Warter. Sonthdowns : first and second, 1/ird 
Wenlock. Leicester and Cheviot sheorlinga: first, Mr. 
George Middlelon, High Cliffe; as also second. I*i- 
cester end Blackfaeed shearlings : first. Lord Wenlock ; 
second, Mr. Middlelon. Shcarhnpa of any crosa: first, 
Mr, Middlelon ; second. Mr. Robert Graham, Burton 
House, Slnindrop. The Silver Cup, for the beat pen of 
aheep in the show, was awarded to Lord Wenlock. 

The pigs belonged wholly to the locality, neither Wain- 
man of Carrheads, nor any other man of mark, attending. 
StiU, the eolleciion was very fair. 

The grains and roots were fine rich samples, spealiing 
volumes for the high cultivation of the district ; and tlie 
poultry were as remarkable for quality as for numbers. 

The judges were, for cattle and sheep, Jlr. Joseph 
Currah, Branson House, Darlington; Mr. B. Wilson, 
Brawilh, Thirak; and Mr. John Angns, Whittfidd, 
Morpeth. Fur jiigs, grains, roots, bacon, and hotter 
Mr. Thomas Welhcrell, Durham, and Me. T. Parringlon, 
Unrworth. For poultrj-, Mr. E. Hewitt, Sparkbrook, 
Birmingham; and Mr. 6. T. Andrews, Dorchester. For 
pgeons, Mr. J. TV. Botcherby, Darlington. 


The Winter Show of the Royal Dublin Society com- 
menced on Tuesday, December 15, and continued to 
Thursday. Iu general the fat stock waa only of a middling : 
description, that is, considered is a Christmas show, and j 
there was not that close competition for the premier priac 
of the eihifaifion— the SO-guinca challenge cup— which 
we have seen in Dublin. This was chielly caused by Mr. | 
AUan PoUok having sent his best cattle thia year to Bir- 
mingham, London, and Liverpool, retaining only some 
ordinary beasts for the Dublin Show. Such a pioceeding 
on Mr. PoUok'a part was in a manner forced upon him. 
He had finally won the Socicly's cup last year, having 
competed for it successfully three years in succession , and 
he had this year replaced it with another of equal value 
to be competed lor on aunilar terms. But he would not 

become a competitor for it himself, and for that reason 
there was no occasion to keep hie beet cattle at home for 
eihibition. The absence of half-a-dozen of beasts of the 
class vrhlch Mr. Pollok has been in the habit of cihi- 
biting, made a great gap in the show ; but at the same 
time it rendered the general character of the exhibition 
more uniform than it has been in previous years. 

Mr. Follok's cup-winning beosts were crosses of the 
sharthom and Gallotiay, agaiuat which even high-bred 
shorthoma, in the best posaible condition, competed in 
rain, and the first winner of the new cup at Dublin last 
week, waa also a cross-bred animal, but of n somcnliat 
diflerent description, being a cross of a sharthom bull 
with a Hereford cow. Thia animal, which belonged to 
Mr. Gavin Low, a cattle aalesman in the Dublin market.

vbJch had of late refused to breed, and whose Rne ijm- 
mctry and beaaliful quaHty, aa well aa prime condition, 
enabled her to win the first place aa the best fat ahort- 
bom cow of an; age. The clasa of tat cows contained 
QlhiT hi^-bred animals, sent then; chiefly for the same 
reaioa that indoced Mr. Chaloner to put bia cow in a 
Ciuiatmas Show ; and this was not coaGnEd to shorthorns, 
fu Ur. J. O. Q. Pollok and Mr. Feathentonehaugb had 
two capital Hereford cows in the Hereford aection, one 
of which had been bnd at Cnmkhill, and the other at Bed- 
itDDC Hall, Salop. Both com were highlr tlnished, and 
while the jndges gave the prize to BIr. PoUok'a cow, 
Ibey eipressed their admiration of the other by highly 
(ommendiag her, being all they could do when there waa 
only a lingle money-nriie to award. There was only one 
kory eow eihibitcd, although it might be suppuMd that 
a Di^ilin Sbow would haTC been atrong in this ptHnt. She 
litloiiged to Mr. Garaett, and though certsinly Tery good 
beef, was not eqoal to some specimens of the same breed 
which we hiYH seen at the Shows of the Royal Dnblin 
Socictf. Mr. Allan Pollok wan three first prizes in the 
Keihr sectiona, thatia, for the best shoittiomed heifer, the 
but \V»t Ifijchlaod heifer, and the best Scotch-polled 
hdfer, all under i ycara old. There was nothing remark- 
tiie aboot those heifers, or any of the others in the dif- 
ferent sections, with the eiception of Mr. Low's cup- 
wianing heifer, whidi waa entered in a general aection, 
the rest being merely fair market beef The entry of 
oitn was decidedly inferior to that of prcrioua years, 
and crery animal eihibitcd in the oi sectiona would 
bate been belter fitted for a abow if they had been kept 
Oier until Baster. The sncccasful eihibilors in those 
seetious were Mr. PoUok, Mr. Barton, and Mr. Winter.

Eit beaslg, and. with a few exceptions, the occupants of 
the different pens were fiiir mutton end nothing

cnnses, between Scotch bUck-ficed ewes and a Shrop- 
■hire ram, although the jndges did not give them the 
priie in the aection in which they were shown. This was a 
general aection made up of ewea and weddcra of all i^es, 
the priie bnng given to a pen of heavy three -year- old 
Ballinadoe wedders, belonging to Mr. Garnett. Surely 
the judges ought to hare talcen the quality of mutton 
into cooaideration, in a ease of this kind, and also the 
difference in age, early mntority being, in our opinion, 
apirially when combined with quality, a very material 
point. Mr, Broushton'a prize ahearling Shcopahire 
wedden were good ueep of their age ; and Mr. Frank's 
two pens of Leicester ewes, both of which were highly 
eoramended, were very fine. They were of the descrip- 
ticD of Leiecsters which are hred in the South of Scothind 
ud in Norlhumberhmd, and genetally known *a " Border 

lliere were only a few swine shown, but there waa not a 
bid one among the lot. The principal competitora, ao far 
u prices went, were tlie Uiasea Bcynell, Mr. Naper, Mr. 
Heyndl. and the Ouardiana of the North Dnblin Unian. 

The abow of poultry wna the larggat and beat held in 
Dublin for abng time, while Mrs, Ftrgnson Blair, Balthay- 
ock Castle, Scotland, was a principal eihibitor. and we are 
glad to say also moat auecessflil. Several of the lota ex- 
hibited by that lady in the different sections were mag- 
nificcnt — particularly her Bramah Pootras, Uorfcingi 


. . liahed all who si.. . 

them. The other sncceaaful cibibitors in the daaa were 
Mr, Williams, Mr, Boyle, Miea Brevar, Lord Jamea 
Butler, Mr. Lanf;try, Mr. Rowland, of Chester, and 
Capt. Cole Hamilton, k large number of besntifiil 
poultry was sent by the Commissioners of National Edu- 
cation, from the Albert Institution, Glaanevin, Thia col- 
lection not only got the prize offered for the beat lot of 
poultry eihibited by a pubUe institution, but was other- 
wise highly commended by the jndges. 

The show of farm-produce, which haa always been a 
leading feature in the Dnblin winter eibibitions, lost none 
ofits attraction on this occasion. It was lai;;cr than usual- 
arising in a great measure &om the competition caoaad by 
the presentation of a second cup by the flnn of Meaart. 
Dickson, Hogg, and Robertson, Dnhlin, for the beat col- 
lection of n>ot-crops. That eminent firm has presented a 
series of cupa for the same ot^ect to the society — that ia, 
one lost year, another for this yeur, and a third for the 
Show of 1SS4. The successful competitor last week was 
the Earl of Charlemont, through hie steward, Mr, Brady, 
the collection sent by his lordship being both extensive 
and good. This is tbe second time that Lord Charlemont 
has won the cnp. having been the successful competitor for 
it at last ycar'a exhibition. 

The collection of roots sent forward by Mr. Uahcr. 
Cappoquin, waa considered so very good that the judges 
rccomiuended it for a epeciol medal, and Lord 
James Butler's coUection waa also highly com- 
mended, while that sent by the Guardians of the 
North Dublin Union, tram their workhousc-fum, was 
commended. Certainly Mr, Usher's collection, as a 
show of roota grown on a fiirm, well deserved the special 
commendation it received; and the thanka of the society 
ore undoubtedly due to the spirited donors of the cup, for 
the stimulus they have given to exhibitors in this depart- 
ment of the show. The ataod of Messrs. Dickson, llogg, 
and Robertson was moat tastefully set out with a grand 
collection of coniferoos plants, omemental fiower vases, 
and lar^ roots, and formed a great attraction to viaitors. 

One of the most intereating objects in the eihibition of 
fiirm produce was a large collection of seedling potatoes, 
grown at the Society's Botanic Gardens, Glaanevin, by Dr. 
Moore, the talented curator of those beauli folly-kept 
grounds, Siitcen of the kinds of seedlinga exliibited arc 
of Scotch origin, having been raised by Mr. Pateraon, 
Dundee. They appear, for the most part, to partake of 
the " Kemp" strain, judging &om their brownie white 
and ronghlsh exteriors. They have only been grown one 
year in the Botanic Gardens at Glaanevin, where thcj were 
scut by Mr. Palcison tu be tried. They are reported to 
have great constitutional vigour, and to have yielded good 
cropa of excellent quality, particularly the kinds i»lled 
Regents, Emperors, and Rocts. Thelrish aeedlings from 
the Botanic Gardens couaisted of 33 lands, alt of which 
are fully matured. They were raised, about ten years 
ago, from seed, and have been grown in the Botanic 
Gardens ever aince, where they have improved in quality 
up to the present time. Some are of the " Kemp" atrain, 
whije othera are apparently more of the red apple. AH 
the aorta possess a vigorous conatitntioo, and yield crops 
of average quantity and of good qoaHty. 'They seem, 
therefore, a most valuable lot to be diatribnted among 
growers thmnghout the kingdom.

than aecond, being a little too mnch on the leg; Bid 
fairly beaten by Mr. Shirley, with > vety clerer rtni^t 
animal, Ml of good pointa, beginning with ■ fins bkiod- 
llke head, and noticeable as the Bawcott Mtmalow beaiti 
nanally are, and aa the highly commended one waa alio, for a 
famooicoat. Mr. Williuni' third pciie, a mottle-Eicc, alw 
diitingnishable for hia good hair, waa not ao itrong in hand, 
■nd with the further eet-off, a bad weak l»ek; while Mr. 
Draper had a very nice compaet iteer, and Mr. Stock 
another elemted from beyond the genend compliment paid 
to the claaB. But it waa not until the jndgea came to tha 
heiferc that tbey found the best of all the Herefhrdi, and 
this wu upparcat the moment Mr. WiUiam OrOTte' entif 
was led out. It is seldom, iudeed, that a grinds 
animal to meet baa erer been eeeu; with a beantifiil 
boaom, a Qne head and neck, deep, thiel^ and heari^ 
fleshed, short on the leg, and fine m llic bone, her tom£ 
WHS scarcely firm enough — a fact which mi^t be accwmted 
for from the heifer being evidently in milk. It waa not 
stated in the catalogue that she erer had a nlf, as this it 
immaterial, so long as the animals come within the pie- 
acribed age for heifsra, tboogb b discuinon OTcr the point 
was occaaionally attempted. Mr. Bettridge's Mcond wu 
very lerel and pretty, if without tke enbitance of her 
rival, but with a better answer to the hand— a Kcmnmal' 
dation that the third prize, again, was tadly deficient is. 
Indeed, whether from the long anmniet and no winter, 
or some otbei cause dependent on breeding or feedii^, 
the Herefords failed chiefly in the matter of that firm, 
healthy and wealthy loach, for which they have been to 

that urnnaUy called for Bingley HaU. With a thorougfa 
dnire to advance, a cheerful courtesy for those irith whom 
the bosiueaa of the oecaaion bnngs thtm in contact, and 
the employment of a very efficient syatem, the direction 
of this society has long stood iT< fsTonrable contraat with 
that of some others, where official priggiahncas and ob- 
stinate prqudice offer eoutinual impediments to any 
Alrtlier progress. It is pleasing to add that the more 
genial conduct of the Midlands Meeting has not been 
without its reward, while the step still further forward, 
•* taken on this oecaaion, was signaUied by uadonbledly 
the best show of cattle erer seen in Birmingham. There 
inight not, perhaps, be any one lo very eitraordinary an 
anmial, but lacfa several section was well filled, and it wbi 
not nntil the Tiaitor came to the sheep and pigs tiat hia 
memory went back to any higher order of merit, as tried 
by the geneial strength of the entry. Then, if Che roots 
hsTB been as perfect in shape and conditioD, the new 
classes for com were more than encouraging, and the 
poultiy still better than ever. Of course, to accommodate 
these additional items iu the catalogue more apace has 
been found re^iusite, and a bandsimie gallery over the 
mplement bay, and adjoining the ponltry aTanoes, not 
oiUy gives more room, but materially improves the 
^ipeuance of the interior. Bingley Ball never yet 
looked so well, and was never ao well fomisfaed as far the 
Oreat £ihibition of 'aiity-tbree. 

At nine o'clock almost to a minnte, the one set of 
judges went to work over the cattle, and the other trio on 
the sheni. Of the four classes of Herefords with which 
the catalogue aa usual opened, two were geneislly com- 
mended—the young steeiaand the hdfers; slthougk these 
were nicely balanced by the older ■"'■"I'l of either sex. 
which were by no means ether individually or numerically 
of mnch merit. The Ave Hereford cows, in fact, made 
np a very indiSbrent display, the beat. Mi-, I'itt'a Cherry, 
a commended cow at Worcester, being somewhat flat- 
sided, and with nothing very strildng about her, while 
Mr. Draper's second had some length ; and the Hoyal 
third, though older than either of the others, was smarter 
and neater, bot so wild and difficult to huidle that the 
jndgea oever had her out. At t«u yeara old and after having 
had five calves, Mr. Baldwin's old Fairy has got rather 
beyond the high-water mark of the show-yard, and this 
wu pretty generally the character of the class. The 
ranks of ue Hereford oien. again, were commajided by ■ 
great plmn beast, exhibited by Mr. Phillips, and bred by 
Mr. Ktt, bnt with littJe beyond his mere siie to recom- 

claas, on the contrarr, and

pmnt that gave the finishiug ImieA to hia many other ex-

and veiy striking in his apporanee when fint led out, fbe 
Cottesmore beast is so handsome, level, and trne, that his

if the jonmey had upaet him ; bat, under any cireum- 
Macea, whatever they meet again, it will be a very near 
thing between maater and man. Mr. WalUz'a com- 
ixaded beait waa at best a eoarae one, with hia eye and 
teat bentaking anything but a healtliy condition; and

meived some notice from the jndgea, Mr. Lynn'i Srat 
haring been taking her tribnte round the cDontrj 
faring the lait two or three months. WiUi a 
nnt head, a kindly look, a fine line, good 
kmdth, and amall in the bone, this caw ia still 
TDyknte and bad in her touch ; the lecling being more 
likelabby blubber than good wholeaome flesu ; a manifest 
dohaiait that baa told more asainat her before now. 
Itrd Howe's second was as handsome as need be ; and 
Hr. Baker, m much Ibrce, was third with a cow bred like 
tke Gold Medal di, by his late bther, and with the two 
nrdinal pointa, at least, of a nice head aud good back. 
StDl, ^ain, the beat of aU the Shorthorns, aa with the 
beat of sU tbe HneCorda, was In the heifer class, where 
Ur. Charlsa Swaiilaod, a gentleman not much known to 
faae in this w^. sent one tbt} near pertectiou. Very 
paod in her baue and tme in her symmetry, this heifer 
bis led wonderfnllj level, and it ia rarely that Buy animal 
carding h moch flesh has had it bo evndy laid on. She 
i^ indeed, the very model of a fai beast, although in 
icUrring this she has aeceasaiily loit aomethiDg of the 
^■•le ehincter that mij^t have been derelopcd 

had abe b«en kspt for other pmposea. Her back is 
Bitraordinary, snd ber touch excellent) bnt if we 
were prone to find bult, it wonld be with her withers, 
while her hoofa have been tenibly neglected, though this 
ia not observable nntil the anuual is led oot. 
Uowerer, these were mere triflas in comparison with her 
other manifeat merits, and so the Kentish heifer was de- 
clared to be not only the beat of her daaa, but the beat of 
the Shorthonis ; Uien the beat of aU the cowa, and, of 
conrae, when it came to the deciding heat, the best animal 
in the yard, as she had already defeated the prise medal 
ox, when confined to their own raoki. The Shorthorns, 

of til the show ; neither of theae, however, were eligible 
for Lord CheslerMd's priie br the beat DX bred and fed b; 
an exhibitor, which atiUwent the same way, to Mr. Staia* 
fortb'a Shorthorn ateer. Mr. Swaialand, the owner of thii 
now tamoDa heifer, residea at Cray ford, and was very suceest- 
fol at the Maidstone ahow last annuner, where the stock WB« 
entered in the name of himself and hia partner Mr. 
Stable, and when we Ums wrote of them : " The heifen 
onder two years old, the first exhibited by Swmaland and 
Stable, and the second by Mr. Betts, were both ven good, 
and for breed aud substance about the best pair oEshort- 
homa in the ahow." Mr. Swaiiland bonglit the chief 
lotaatSirJdm lAbbook's sale, and the Birmingham cham- 
pion heifto' was bred by X«dy Lubbock. Mr. Jamca' second 
was rather eoarae, and not quite right in ker back, bnt of 
gnat tnbstaoce, and wth a deal of good meat abont her; 
and Mr. Strstton's, thongh by no means so forward, it aun 
to go on, haring the atrong eaeentiala of " long, level, and 
handsome," with firm nice qnality. The EommendatiDna 
which M^sra. Stnbbt and Fantkno' received were worth 
having in such company, as the Blmingham Shorthoma 
will take a deal of beating anywhere.

while the meriCa of the two will be tried again 
when tiiey come, as they will, into the same class at 
Islington. The Royal Devon is by The Colonel ; and Mr, 
Farthing'B couple of young steers by hts Per^rine ; 
but the third best in the younger class is only 
a middling beast, and we donbt whether the Royal herd 
ahoold not have taken two out of the three preminms here 
awarded. Mr. Tucker's, straight, lengthy, and level, was 
far away the best cow, despite the judges being some time 
in dispute over her meritt ss eompved with those of a 
Snebredbutpatchy, and very gandy-qnartered one entered 
by Mr. Smith, of Southerhay, and bred by Mr. Halse. 
Mr. Smith did better with his heifer; very mart and 
handsome, bnt amall, and fit to rank with the Royal 
steer or Somerset beast Ira the Snt place in Ml. Oeo^

it was that the bert oien were not to be found in the 
awotjy, he coold not tay, but the animals were certainly 
Bot Of oal to thoae of the last three or four years." 

Tit Dxvosa about equal Iheir last year'a appeennce, u 
^u uumben are eoncerned. At Birmingham there was 
une DDmnially good competition in the male claiaej t but 
itn we hare winners that would not run the riak of a 
jovney last week, and aared up their condition far 
triiunph at lalingtoa, Mr. Robert Wortley's firat prize 
iteer, bred from the herda of Mr. Hole and Mr. Qnsrtly, 
ii remarkable for siie and weight, very great at 2 yean 
■III 7 months old, and possessing also the characteristic 
"t ■ good Devon. Lord Leicester takes the second place 
■ith aootiier capital apecimen of the breed ; and Mr. 
Jch^i Overman places ■ good third, well fed, of good form, 
ud showing the qoahtj of the stock of Mr. Timer and 
Lird ItaeaAer, fram which this animal waa bred. 
Goicnl Hood'a ateer. in the class, is small-framed, 
thngh in rare meaty condition. The older Deiona 
•nin great font; Mr. Ileath'a oi, from the stock of 
Mr. Puimore, being all meat, of rare loach and qoa- 
lily, and with, a very small praportion of bone. Some 
question may be niud whether Lord Ldcester'a third- 
pnu ihoiild not have been a-head of General Hood'a 
noDd-piiie steer; the latter ia not well-ahaped abont 
the loin and rump ; but splendid beef haa carried the 
dsy -. and after aU, the butcher most be thought of, aa 
■ell IS the biteder and graiier, tn a professedly fat-stock 
show. Mr. Farthing's steer has great siie, bnt fails in 
poinl otaualitj ; and Mr. Osbonie's is a compact well-fed 
uimal, deaerring of special mention. He remainder of 
Ihe daai is good, as ia evident from the hct of Mr. Tucker's 
third-prize beaat at Bingley Hall being here without a 
pltct among the honoora. In the Devon cowa, Mr. 
Toeker'a ftrat-piiie Birmingham eow " Bonny," and sveiy 
pni one too, is beaten by three clearly superior animal. 
Goieiil Hood's third-prize cow, " Hyacinth," bred by the 
Istt Prince Coniort, is prime in every reapect ; Mr. 
Htath's old mw " Stately" ia &irly in the second place, in 
fiU of too mnch Imnpy Besh to be a perfect model ; and 
Mi, John Overman's " Fanny" eclipses all, fbraymmetry. 

beauty, nod good feeding combined. The heifera are of 
considerable merit. Ittr. Smith's Birminghaza firat.priie 
heifer, all fat and Scah, is here only th^d to two mnch 
better animals ; namely, Mr. Farthing's heifer by " Sir 
Peregrine," and Mr. Ford's " Almateua," which takes the 
Grstprize for splendid form, and great weight of good meat. 
The HEBsrOBDS number fonr entries more than last 
year. In the class for young ateera, Mr. Shirley's Sist- 
pitte Birmingham beast is here second to General Hood's 
steer, which was not even commended at Birmingham. 
Keithec ia a first-daaa animal, but the Royal beast haa 
certainly the fewest faults ; he has a grand back and loin, 
and better fore-quarter thin the other, and more of tiie 
true Hereford character, though a aomewhst loose handleri 
the girth ia 7 feet 8 inches, and length 4 feet y inches; 
of Mr. Shirley 'a— girth 8 feet, length 4 feet 10 inches. 
Mr. Bettridge's third-priie steer girths 8 feet G inches, 
and though three months older than Mr. Shirley's, is 
inferior in some of the principal points. In the clau of 
older males, we find the crack steer of the show, Mr. 
Heath's silver-enp, or jmiaiiaTii gold-medal, oi, the beat 
male animal in all Uie cattle classes. This is an eitraordin- 
arily great and grand specimen of the breed— ven large in 
frame, broad, deep, wonderfully atraight, level, and heavily- 
covered at every good point -, the girth is 9 feet 4 inches. 
Unfortunately, this true ox is off his legs, and even 
on Monday waa evidently doubling up ; but when seen on 
all-fours, his appearance is very taking, his bone fine, head 
handsome, coat of the right character, and handling 
indicative of snperb beef. Mr. Symonds need not grieve at 
coming only second after such a apecimcn, and does well 
itep in before Mr, Aldworth'a very big and good tbird- 
;e OI. Mr, Phillips' Birmingham commended oi is 
e "nowhere." The judges have chopped the Birming- 
1 decisions ibont in a strange manner , and the Fates 
have atill further over-ruled the elcmenta, to derange the 
rords of that occasion. The foot-and -month distemper 
has knocked down Mr. Gmvea' splendid Birmingham Grat- 
prize heifer, which we had hoped would have here won aome- 
thing like ■ position, asshewosliardly well en ongh treated 
' Bingley Hall. Here, however, she could but get a second 
ice to Mr, Bettridge's " Yoang Beauty," that was aecoad 
Birmingham. This heifer bad firm Srst-daas fleah, but 
aoch perfection as that of her unlucky oompetitor ; and 
we look upon the Islington ruUng aa altogether a miatakc 
Mr, Williama' " Dnohess," that was third at Birmingham, 
takes no prize here; but Mr. Hunt's heifer atepa in 
as third — certainly an eicellent and handsome animal. 
Mr. Baldwin's "Empress," highly commended at Bir- 
mingham, ia obliged to follow suit to Mr. Hunt's tieifer, 
there unnoticed. Among the cowl, loliogton 
eaten Mr. Pitt's "Chert?/' and General Hood 
and Mr. Draper change their Binniagbain places, to the 
advantage of the former ; being, as wc then said of her, 
th amatter and neater than the other. 
Spurred up by their mediocre position of last year, the 
Shobthobhs bave come np in strong force — no less than 
5S, instead of 44 entries. Mr, Baker's Birmingham gold- 
nedal roan ia here again the conqneror among its breed ; 
I grand beast, with a wonderfully round barrel of flaab, 
ind only here and there a fanlt to be found ; bnt eood si 
he undoubtedly is. we cannot class this animal with same 
■ " ve occasionally astonished the world in former 
years. Mr. Swinnerton's oi is second again, aa at Bir- 
very good beaat, ot ^reat aize, m* qnility. 



bat BomewIiBt defcclive both in thigh Dad aboulder. Mr. 
J. B. Thoropson'a white oi is also third nj-nin, lew other 
noticeable animak appeared in the class, beyood perhaps 
Mr. Aldworth'9 rery heavy roan. There was a verv lari-o 
class of young steers, aiid as iDtiioated in our Bin|;lcy Hull 
re[)ort, Rood judges have seen cause to prefer Mr. John 
Thompson's steer to that uf the Bulce of Beaufort ; 
u indeed, to stiU belter bensis than His Grace's. Mr. 
Thompson's roan, highly -comiacaded at 
takes the highest place in the class ; and. aRer carefully ei- 
■miuingall points, we are perfectly satisBedthal the award 
is right, and, as we said nt lime, that Ibc Binningham de- 
cree Kai wrong. The Duke's steer, thongh given a third 
priie at Birmingham, is very imperfect in fonn, the 
shonlder-blades grown out like those of otd-worked plough 
oien, and the desh much too palehy, Mr, Sismaii's 
commended steer is more meritorions in regnrd to sym- 
metry, though rather a loose handler; while Mr.Staiotorlh's 
(t«T, that was first in his doss at Birmingham, went 
theueeto Liverpool; so that Earl Radnor's (hick. good roan 
beast, with beautiful form and rare ronnds of beef, gets 
the second pri», after Mr. Thompsun's first. Mr. Ilnl- 
btrt'a steer is square, deep, and good, but wauling in 
length; Kir. Craddoek's dclicient in flesh, and neither 
level along the back nor posst-jjiug much beanty ; nor is 
Sir Thomas Lenntrd's "rtTj commendabte for weight 
or quality. General Uood is in luck in this class; 
bnl we cannot see what the judges eould admire and 
" commend " in Ibis white steer, with thick bone, 
Bat ude, and back ont of line, nuless it be the good 
meat, depth of carcass, general brnld and shaggy hair 
of a Highlander — hardly meritorious in a pure Short- 
horn. A short show of heifers did not prodnee anything 
to equal Mr. Swalsland's Birmingham plum ; and " Oak- 
bnd" again carries off the silver cup as the best female in 
all the cattle classes. She is certainly very perfect in most 
of her points, and vrith nearly everj-thiug abont her that a 
breeder may admire ; saving, as we reported of her at 
Birmingham, a lack of fcmiuine character, particukirly 
about the head. The flrst prize roan and red cow 
of Mr. Matthewj, " Beauly," was not at liirmingham ; 
she is eieecdiogly level and h»ndaome, with rare hind- 
qnarten, and hoe o^ ; but some question was raised by 
man; critics as to the merits of the second and third prize 
eowi. Mr. Lynn's well-known " Luck's-all. tijiing the 
second prize, has a sweet head, but is deficient before the 
shoulder, and with very loose blabber beef. ill. Abbolt's 
third-priie ro*n row " Nonpareil" is ciccedingly good ; 
but while fatter, also two years older than the other. All 
things cOTisidered, these animals could arorcely have been 
placed Dther«isE than as they are. Among the remaining 
cows, Mr. Edmonds' "Beauty" is worthy of mention, as 
large-framed, level, and good in qnality. 

Last year we hod bat eleven ScssFH cattle ; this time, 
that uaetnl breed numbers thirty entries. Mr. Shoosmith's 
first-prize steer is just the sort for the meat-market. Mr. 
Neole, Messrs. Heasman, Air. Bolting, and Mr.M.Monte- 
flore also show some very well-formed, well-fed, aud valu- 
able animals. Messrs. Hensmau's first priieeow.aud Mr, 
Shoosmith's seeond-prjie, " Lovely," aro beautiful beef, 
with cousidctable merit for symmetry and fine breeding ; 
and the Sussex evince stil! farther advancement io that 
style and quality so observable on the last few occasion*. 

NoMOLK or SurroLK Polls were ciccedingly scarce 
last year, when we had but two entries ; but ^is scaion 
we have as many as seven. Mr. Oliver, Mr.lVortlcy, .Mr. 
Mulleu, and ilr. Collins eihibit some creditable'spcci- 
mens of breeds— more valuable than their scanty appear- 
ance at our (ht stock shows might lead us to suppose ; 
■Ithoush in some instancea the evidence of a cross with 
homea cattle was very apparent, 

Hie l/ixuBOtxa nnrnW Mf-tt-dom entiin, lutttad

really good. Mr, Chapman, Jlr. Coi, and Jlr, Barbirry 
show animals of great substance and rich fieah ; Mr. 
Burberry's cow being the best of the breed, and doe a! 
the best seen for some seasons, 

Scotch Horned Cattle numbered only tour bisl year; 
hut this ChrialmaB, they have grown to eleven. Mr. Sntji'i 
splendid West Highlander, grand in every point, anil nlwnl 
as good as we ever saw uf this Cnc breed, is of eoiirw 
Arst, and really the only question is whelJu^r he shouUnut

Pollok's ruddy-ooalcd oi it not half a bad Moood ; and 
Mr, Eastwood's heifer it extremely handaome, ver)' com- 
pact, vrith beautiful touch, aud characteristic shagiy black 

The Scotch Polh are eleven— on increue of four 
eulriet. Mr, MT^mbio's big Binningfaam flit priic 
Aberdeen, again takei the lop place ; and Mr. llcilh'i 

G-ime Galloway it once more seoond here. The N'orlh 
ritish cattle are teaehing some of the Soothen brttdm 
a lesson of improvement ; and the Uaek polled anJ 
rough-coated, loog-homed Wwt H^;hlanden are likely 
to continue amongst the most attractive fetturet in tie 
Smithfield Club Show. 

Tbero wss one TiiBH Cow last year ; bnt now there 
arc three oien and ■ cow. Mr. SeweU Bead's liibl- 
roan-eoloored oi has moch of Shorthorn exeeUeicet ibuul 
it ; and the Earl of Damley showed a nice Kerrv. 

Of WGLaH Cattle there are but four, a dermsc of 
one linre last year ; althoi^h these runts are amongfl ltt« 
most valuable beasts that either the butchor or the graiier 
ever get hold of. Here Mr. Sewoll Read and Mr, 
Bennett take first prices with animtlt of considenble merit. 

The Chois or ^IiieD'BBBD Cattle number nindccn 
entries, or one in excess of Last year. Mr. Wortlcr'i 
Uevon and Polled Norfolk it very good, and qoil' 
Devonicnsisin character. Mr. John Overman's Devou ini 
Shorthorn is very great and good, but more like a Shorthorn 
than anything else. Mr. Mitchell's cross between Long- 
horn and Shorthorn is conspicuous for immensity of fmns 
rather than for weight of good flesh pot npou it. )lr. 
Farthing's Oucmtey and Devon heifer is very like a pwd 
Devon ; and Mr. Allan Pollok's Shorthorn and Gstlunay 
heifer, black, and without homt, it very tymmettical, 1:1, 
and of capital quality. She was one of the plomi of tiic 
pudding, and, as we wrote of her at Birmingham, "apii:- 
lure to look at — round, tree, and at fnll as an egg of good 
meat all over her;" while she now easily defeated Its 
cow placed above lier in Bingley Hall, But the onriosity 
otihe"rroMariiiij-ed breed" clastei was Mr. Tin p^'' 
second-prilB ox, described at a croia between the Lincoln 
and Vorkshire bnedt. The latter, we take it, impliu i 
Shorthorn ; but what is the Lincoln breed if that is not 
also of the Dnrliam character? At any rate, as we ue 
assured, at the recent meeting at Waylond in Norhlli Mr. 
'Rngey't beatt was entered as a Shorthorn, taking a lerand 
priie to Mr. Malhcwi' cow, which was placed first, M 
Islington the two on again flrst and second, but with the 
Merton cow ttill a Shorthorn, aud the EUingham oi a

VIS well known that wheat did not now paj for growing, 
but that the production of beef and mutton did ; and this 
made it more than ever seeesaar; that thcj should select 
Iboae kinds or food which cima most within tbeir resch,

LONDON, HoND&T, Dec. 14.— A remarlcBblj flne 
Kuon ta the prodnnUoii of Hn itook, a very high range 
in IhE Tilne of food, an abundant anpplj ot gnu, 
tormp), JK., in moat porta of the United Kmgdoni, and 
1 matinned iacreaae in the demand for butchers' meat,

pmiiled in the oatton diitricta, combinod to produce cue 
ot ibe Aaeit ahowa of beasta for Cbhatnias eouaamptiau 
ia to-dij'i marhat almost Btbt witneaaed. Perhapa, in- 
dtd, we are juatiSed ia lajing that the anpply, bikeu 
MlleetiTcIj, waa nerer equFilled. Much hu been 
■aid at the value and importance of the now-citcnded 
•yiiaa of eroiaiu^, both In a productive and monctaiy 
point of licw. We freely admit thutjndieiaus cioisiug 
)U9 produced impartiat results to the conntrj genenillj ; 
umthtieai, we were much gratiSed to find the pure breeds 
a! the eoontry au well represented, becsuse we laa; still 
rilcnlile with safety upon parity and atamina for future 
biMdiiig purtnsea. From the large number exhibited we 
mij, in the llnrt place, refer to the Sborthorna aa a distinct 
trwd. They were certainly quite equal to all former 
tbdwi, both as regards aymmetry and quality. With 
lerr frw eiceptiona, this distinctive and important breed 
ibowtd signs ot great weight. Tbete were fewer " staggy" 
aaiaials amongst it than on lome prerious oceasioua, and 
tb prina realised for them were, in our opinion, highly 
nmnnentive. It will be perceived, therefore, that tba 
Shorthorns hare supported thejr'grest reputation aa won- 
IcrlU stock for general connuaptian, 

la dfalioR with the Dcrons, we find much to be satis- 
kdwith. They ware in somewhat greater force tlmn in 
the last two yean, and well auited for West-end consump- 
tion. Pariiapa the beat pcrtion of tha supply were 40 
^mth Darona, the prup erty of Ur. Senior, of Broughton 
Hqik, near Aylaabniy. The** ii"iin«i« weighed from 140 
I4 MO riooM eaeh— an unDiiiilly gnat Wright for Nortii 

Devons — and eirited the admiration of the moit eiperienced 
butchers. There were a few whot may ha termed mid- 
dling beasts fh>m the Weat of England ; but the anpply 
from that quarter, ai a whole, was ramarkahly flne. 

The show of Uerefards was unusually prima, and the 
number was rather on the increase, espeoially from our 
beat gniing diitricts. 

With Scots from Scotland the market waa well anppliad ; 
indeed, we may observe that this breed exhibited point* of 
great eiccllence. As nsnsl, Mr. M'Combie, of Tillylbar, 
was a moat important exUbitor. Thtt gentleman tbr- 
wsrdcd no less than SS pure Scots, via., ST to Meaan. 
Maidwell and Hoyland, and US to Heairs, Oiblett and 
Son. There were no young animals amongst them, and the 
whole fonnd bnyera at high qnotaUona. The Noriblh and 
SaffoUc homed and polled BeoU came to hand in aplendid 
condition, and were easily disposed of. 

Thara waa a good aprinhling of HmbIs from Sussex, In full 
average condition. Wa had hoped, from the appearano* 
of the ihow-yard, to see a larger number of yonng animals ; 
btit we fDnnd most of the ttock, though wondarfnlly ripe, 
not suited to flrat-cloas ooniumption. In our opinion, 
9nssex, though not what may be tarmad a great stock- 

the Beaats shown on this oooasion were six, seven, and 
eight yean old, and had avidently been Worked. 

There was a large and flne eqllection of Welsh mnti, 
when oomparad with aome pnvinna leaaona. It ia latis- 
bdtory to And this description of stock oomlng fbrwsrd 
more freely to meet nonsainptioa. Wa onrtelrei are at a 
losa to imagine upon what gronnds th* breeden hare 
partly abandoned lo important a breed, nnleai they find it 
more advantageous to adopt Uie croiaing ayMam, and 
thereby produce early raattirity. 

Tba atook from fiehnd prsMotod «o tcfm ft* if 





c<miniait. As nauil, its qonlil/ waa but middling, and 
ulM progressed slowlf. 

Th« nomber of eroues conuderaUjr exceeded tU lbrm(.'r 
yean. Almost every coimty ia EngUad, bat more espe- 
ciallf Korfblli, SuSili;, and CaiabridgeBhire, wu wfU 
repTMCiited id tbli respect ; (rhilst at least tiio-thirda of 
the beat from Scotlaud were cross-breeds. The display 
was eerlaialy a woadcrfol one. Erca quality and Gac 
conditioa were the leading charaL'terislics ; Init, in our 
opinion, the most Taluable crosses were those between the 
Scot* and Shorthorns, which, in numeroua instances, 
resitted qnite as much money as the pure breeds.

hibited, and the prices realize'! for them, on the Great

llie supply of Beasts being unusually large, and dI 
remarkably even quality, the demand for neirl) 
all breeds was in a sluggish state. However, compared 
with Monday last, very little change took place in thf 
quotations. A few very superior Scots realized 5i. 2J. : 
but the general top figure for Beef was 5a. per 8lb«. 

Prime Downs and halt-breds moved olF steadily, al 
very fUl prices — the general top quotation being 6j. jwr 
Slbs. Olberwiae, the Mutton trade was heavy, at a de- 
cline of ad. per Bibs. 

Calves were in short supply. No quotsbte change toA 
place in prices ; but the Vol trade was heavy. 

In Pigs very little was passiiiK, on former terms. 

The arrivals from Lmcolnehire, Leicestershire, and 
Northamptonshire, including Warwickshire, amounted U 
about 2,500 sborthoms, crosses, Sa., fttim various psr1« 
of England, including Devonshire, 2,200 Devon*, Here- 
fords, runts, &c. ; from Norfolk, Suffolk, Essei, and C-jra- 
bridgcsbire, 1,600 Scots and crosses ; fimn Scollacd, 
1,800 Scots and crosses ; and from Ireland, 800 Dim 
and Heifen. 

There was a fair show of Spanish and Portu|rtic« 
Beasts. The supply from Ireland was only middling in

^ijDoied too long at a time, we wander np and down that 
Imdr Baiftrd-(ti«et. We gueon the great roiuh stonea, 
the derp holea, and the thick mwa of mnd and dirt. We 
■n the mreyor of our parish, and we thought if our 
nadi kad been in thii state what a strong argmnent that 
■Hold have been at the' Norwich Janoarj Seasiou for 
taming oar Hnnditd into a Diitrict Board I 

The doors at length open, and there ia the naoil little

^^ in proportion to llie Norfolk eutriea, great 
*u the nmnber of piiiea. Mr, Heath abowed only

is a little decent breeding stock in Norfolk, thou^ onr 
agrieollaral shows are by no means celdnated. Some 
people habitnally tnm op Uudr noses atall bt stock shows, 
and say any one can feed a bnllock. Let an outsider try 
if he lua a chanoe against such graiiera as Mr. Heath and 
Mr. Overman. It is neeeasary, of course, to get 
the light sort of atock to teed, but than it 
requires a ^eat deal of knowledge, a 
of care, siml, and pnaeverauee to ( 
successful eihibitiou. " ' 
mark the contini 

and consider well the vast amount of Arm ai 
tbn produce on a small bame, and yet pceaerve tbe animal 
in health and ke^its form in proper praportion. lliis ia 
no easy task. What thcae pme animals est, and what 
they drink, we don't know, and therefore cannot tell, bnt 
we don't believe all the tales that are told of sugar and 
treacle, and porter and new milk. 

The Bevons were good this year, sod the Hereford* 
very commendable, but the male Sborthoras, eapecially the 
young steers, were a sorry lot, and if the Birmingham 
Eold-medal oi was the beat in his class, this year has pro- 
duced no good btling among the male Shorthorns. The 
Susaez still go a-head, and if the breedera on the aly send 
to Devon for gualiiy, why dou't amne of tJie Devon men 
steal over to Sussex for titt F Thej had better do tktt 
than run to tbe sonth of their own eoun^, for the imprared 
Sussex are certainly better ibaped eattle than the 
South Devon. Our Nocfolks made up a small olass, bnt 
nevertheless contained two very good specjmeaa. Hr. 
Oliver's was s beautiful ox, and without wishing to be 
rude to tbe breeder and grsaier, if Mr. HsAth, Mr. 
Overman, or Hr. Wortley had bad this ox in hand, he 
might have been dnim out br the gold medal. We 
should have liked the Norfolk and Snfolk claas to have 
been mora nuiform : we hear that two proteata were 
lodged aninst two animals for not being ^niety bied- 
Had tbe Norfolk Agiicnltnral Society done its dnty and 
stuck to the true red sa their only colour, our bame-bred 
cattle would have long ago aasnmed a more onifonn and 
rafale cait of character. The Scots were a prime lot, 
especially the Highlanders, bnt the croas-bieda were hardly 
Dp to the eicelleuce of former years. 

The Lougwools were nowhere. How are the mighty 
folLen when tbe Cottirolda are pronounced nnwortby of a 
prise I It may be a cruel aot which withheld tbe prists 
and yet it may do good. Some few Olo'ster men wtn 
very wroth ; th^ declared that the only reaaon why the 
crack breeders did not exhibit &t wethers waa that there 
was such a demand for their ramt, that tht^ saved everf 
good male sheep they bred. This ia a legitimate exeosi^ 
eepedolly when we consider how many Cotsirold rams ne 
snnualtj sold, and what prices they make. Hr. Oreiman'a 
eroBB breeds were very good, quite up to the high naifc 
of the Bnmham sheep. But the Oilbrd Downs muat here 
been poor for a jnvamle outsider like Mr. Arthur Overman 
to mn afl' with tbe 9r*t priie. It ttrnck na that tb e Ox- 
ford Downs had thin lege and bed acng*. dArtt

been so pampered and petted that she may not like the 
bleak climate, or the poor wiry grass of Herton Park. If 
we had our mind, no ewe sliotild compete in this class that 
had not had at least two kmbs, 

A Norfolk man heaTCs an enTiou sigh over the Smith- 
flcld pigs, and wonders why hit eonnty, with such good 
cattle and such dsoent sheep, should ^wsy s be snpptied

The show of the Smithfield Club was a great eacoesi ; 
the dinner was a total failnrc. Far more than three weajy 
hours did we sit in that classic Hall of the Freemasoni' 
TtYOa. It may be a great treat to gaze on four lire

tions and erratic movements of one of the tpeaken at oai

nufaedolto the Society of Arts, and were in time to hear 
a discusiion, in which the chief speakers seined to da all 
they Gonld to discourage a system that had done k mmb 
to help them on the read to fortune.

The lut four days of Norember contiDued Sue, 
the barometer showing a tendeacy to decrease, 
although (lowly j whilst the wind blew gently from 
the £^ or S.K. The mean temperature on the 
37tb was in excess of the average value to the 
amount of 4°, whilst the other three days of the 
mouth were in defect to tlie mean amount of 4°, 
the absolute deficiency on the 30th amounting 

On the 1st of December the barometer began to 
fall very rapidly, reached 2S.46 inches by night, 
and the minimum value of 2S.a4 inches on the 
morning of the 2nd, indicating by its rapid decline 
an impending f{&le. The wind commenced blowing 
with great and sudden force after 3 p.m., and soon 
reached s pressure of lOlba. About 3 p.m. a 
great gust of 22tlbB. was registered, and the wind 
continued blowing with grrat force till 3} p.m., 
generally between lulbs. and ISlhs. The barome- 
tric column was meanwhile rising rapidly ; by 9i 
p.m. the reading 2S.3S inches was reached, and it 
remained at this value till 11 p.m., then again 
turned to decrease rapidly, presaging a recom- 
mencement of the gale. Bv 7 a.m. on the 3rd, a 
minimum value of 28.80 inches was again reached, 
and soon after, whilst the barometer was stUl at its 
lowest value, the maximum force of the gale was 
reached, namely, 2 libs, on the aanare foot. The 
wind also slightly changed its direction at the 
same time from S.W, to W,, and continued to 

and 12lbs. During the remainder of the day the 
barometer rose steadily, and at times rapidly, reach- 
ing 29.1 inches by noon, 39.4 inches, 
29.8 inches by midnight, and by noon on the 4th 
day it reached 30.22 inches (a maximum value). 
Thus, an increase of 1.42 inches took place within 
28 hours, or at an average rate of increaie of 0.05 
inch per hour, whilst during several hours the rate 
of increase was still greater, amounting to 0.08 
inch. The rapid moUon of the air tended to pro- 
duce greater atmospheric dryness, and we find 
therefore that the degree of humidity, which had 
previously exceeded 90, decreased on the 3rd to 66, 
and was not much greater on the 4th, when it 
was 7s. ' 

The temperature was generally high on the 
four first day* of December, although not eicei- 
aively so, the mean temperature values for those 
days exceeding their averages by the mean amount 
of 1 1°. Rain fall in squalls also during the gales 
of the 3nd and 3rd, to the collective amount of 
three-quarters of an inch. 

From the 5th to the 16th a very warm period 
ensued, daring which the average excess of mean 
teraperatuie values amounted to no less tiian Sf, 
whiut on the I2th the excess was I0i°, and on 

the Sth, 7th, Bth, 9th, and nth daya the amoDDK 
of excess varied between 7* and 8°. During Uiii 
period the atmosphere was somewhat damp, and 
clouds were genenlly prevalent. 

The barometer decreased to a minimum vilos 
on the IGth of 39.6 inches, and then increased 
rapidly to 30.34 inchea by the 18th ; the wind 
meantime changing to N. The effect of this 
change in direction of the wind waa to prodnce 
for a short time colder weather, and the mean tem- 
perature for the I3th fell below its average to the 
amount of 3°. But with a faUing banmteter the 
wind returned to the W., and warm weather again 
enined, which continued till the end of our period, 
and tbs amounts of excess above the average rslaei 
were as followa: on the 26th, 11°, 34th and 25lh 
nearly 8°, and the 21st, S° ; of the other days, 
the 20th, 23rd, and 37tb, exceeded their averagei 
by small amonnta, whilst the 33nd fell below iti 
average, likewise by a small amount. The27t1i 
day was very dry, the degree of humidity amount- 
ing only to 63°, 

By examining the tables of results the following 
facts are easily deduced, namely, that the highsH 
barometer reading occurred on the 18th of Decem- 
ber, and was 30.34 inches ; the lowest was 98.80 
inchea, on the 3rd, giving a range for the month of 
1,S4 inches. The highest lemperature in theibide 
was S4.3° on the 3rd, and the lowest 26.5° on 
the 33rd ; making a range of 27. 7°' f^' 
highest reading in the rays of the sun was 78.2° 
on the 28ih of November : the^oweit on the gran 
was 16.2° on the 23rd of December. The 
dampest days in the month were the lit and the 
31sl: the dryest days in the month were the 3rd 
andS7tb. The total amount of rain collected from 
the 27th of November to the 27th of December wM 
O.go inch — an extremely small amount. TheDiua- 
ber of days on which a measurable amount of rsia 
fell only amounted to six days. The past moDlhi 
therefore, has been marked by the following cha- 
racteristics : firstly, by excessive warmth throogb- 
out; secondly, for undue prevalence of S.W. and 
W. winds ; and, thirdly, for an exceisively imsll 
quantity of rain. With reference to the temMi*- 
ture, it may be remarked thatthe mean for tlieSI 
days exceeded the average for the same period by 
no less an amount than 3j° ; and with regard to 
the greater prevalence of S.W. and W. winds, it 
will be seen by referring to the tables that they 
prevailed mt least daring three-fourths of the 

llie past month haa, therefore, been generally 
favourable to the progress of agricultural opeia- 
tions; and fortunately so too, as there nowap* 
pears every probability of a speedy change u

Tha live stoclc on tbe farm, of every kind, will 
demand tha most constant attention and care o( the 
farmer, if he would rearanimals to profit and derive 
advantage from his labours, never forgetting the 
great affects of minute care in increasing tbe pro- 
doee of a form. B apply the cattle in the yards 
and horsBS with fresh straw daily, and give tamips 
and othei roots in tbe morning, that the cattle may 
eat during daylight, and be seen when choked or 
BwoUen. Turnips are best fretb-drawn from the

superiority of aucUing over band-feediag. If any 
dairy produce be wanted uaa a portion of the coti 
for that purpose, and the others for weaning calvei. 
Allow ample food in evwy case. Have the ulf-

by 3 feet, opening into the cow-ahed, from tbe end 
or from behind, if tbe widch of tbe shed admit. 

The shoep flocks must have freah ttiraips daily

Separate apartmente for each kind of poultiy

Ibeveatber at thii leason, that 

it is ItnpoBuble to do more than anggeat. At all 
evenla, those Who desire to bare lettuces, radishes, 
and atltda early must be poisessed of frames and 
lights. We do not allude to forcing, but simply to 
protection ; yet this will imply some kind of linings, 
either of dung, fern, or straw kid so thick around 
tbe bat and ligbta, or brick-pits, ai to exclude a 
frost of 20 degrees, wbich often i^ta us and Uste 
many days. Even vegetable grown under frames 
mutt have air in fine intervals by day, the aaahes 
closed ever; tugb^ and be coverad, whenever it

of defence that can be used. 

If the weather and ground ba opan, tiie grM 
and white cos-lettuce and tbe brown Dntcb, sad 
also a sprinkling of short-topped ladiah, can be 
sown on a warm border ; the earth ought to D«

The moDth of December witncMed extraordinar]' 
atmoapberic changei. The fint mek wu atorm^ 
hejoad the mtmory of mmj — the dioaiteri at aea 
being frightful, and on the land very axtensire, 
with a heai^ dotvnCall of rain; but, immedialelf 
aftermrdB, tdere tras a sudden transition to clear 
and calm weather, with occ<iiional in terra [itiona, 
and the doting fortnight wai quite above the ave- 
nge of seaaon, both ai to cleunes* and lemperatDre. 
Field interruptions, therefore, hare not been serious 
juat at the close of the year, and the young Wheat 
everywhere looked well, according to the time of 
planting. Cattie have had a fair biCe of unts, and 
no caculenta have been damaged by frost. The 
Cattle Show gave fiill proof of agricultural energy 
and euccess, which haa secured an increasing 
amount of public interest. The last Monday in 
November, which could not bs included in our 
nview of that month, happacsd to be the only 
lively one, pricea than being geuenlly Is. per qr. 
bigher for English Wheat, and Is. to 2s. for 
foreign ; and it is under the inSuence of the mar- 
ket* then held, that the general averages have aince 
continued to show a aligDt advance. Every thing 
at that time looked fair for a further improvsment, 
the attention of capitaliata being drawn to the low 
raoga of pricea, but the ncigencie* of foreign 

Governments brought a sudden rise in the rate of 
discount, which completely changed the face of , 
things, and though less pressure has since heea 
felt, the corn market has not recovered from the 
shock, the vreatsat depreciation bung fell oa Ibe 
second Monday, when pricea fell 2a. per qr., Itaving , 
much heaviness entailed on subsequent maikeU 
from the holidays and general indisposition c' 
bnyera to contract fresh bargains at the close of the 
year. There have, however, arisen serious coo- , 
plications on the Schleswig-Holstein question, aod 
with armies already set in motion and human pu- 
eiona excited, one fatal epark lighting upoa 
materials so combustible may kindle up an | 
European war ; with that probahilitj before ut 
there ia an equal prospect of a rise in Wheat ; for, 
with all our abundance, the cutting off either of 
Baltic or American supplies, wholly or in part, «i!l { 
be a hint to farmera not to throw their opportuaitiN 
away. A rise of lOa. per qr. might then eatus 
without the slightest pressure on the public. Hm i 
Baltic ports have been already apprehensive of i | 
Swedish and Daniah blockade, aud thoufib this 
would make little difference to places ordinuily 
blocked up by ice, they would feel it aeverelj I 
through the spring and aammer. Nor is llu | 
Polish difficulty to be lost sight of, which, takbif

DDt prerented extensive speculation, showing 
that wbatem opinion England may have of the 
f!l^]r^ America is confident of higher ratea. In- 
ittd, either in the event of a speedy peace with the 
South, or of a continued war, the opinion seems 
jnitiGeil. War ninat lessen labour and increase 
nite. Peace must make an enormous demand 
for the necessitiea of the Southerners, who for a 
tine Boold be the best customers of the Federal 
Sulci. On the other hand, if we Uke it for 
tirantol that peace is everywhere to rule, are our

Tilue have obtained abroad, though prices in the 
principal shipping ports, as well as in France, have 
been wtoewhat declimng, as the quotations here- 
DDiier will show. Fine wheat in Paris has been 
■ellinf; at about 42s. per qr., lower sorts at 39s, 
Prices at Antwerp for old Baltic were 41s. 6d., 
winter American 43b., Ghirka 40s. per qr. Wheat 
u Mantricbt in Holland was quoted 4ls. per qr. 
Saalc wheat at Hambro' tie, per qr. ; fine new at 
DiDiig, 4Zl. to 44a. ; old, being very scarce, 47s. 
pcrqr.; new native at Cologne 3ga. AtStraubing, 
top quality, 40g. At Odessa the range of prices

Ml- 6d. per qr. of 480lbB. ; winter, 33s. 4d. ; 
while Michiitan, 3S8. per qr. 

The first Monday in London began on moderate 
ifnnh of English wheat, and a small supply of 
for^n. But few samples were eihibileo from 
i^Dt and Essex during the morning, and the con- 
ation was inferior. Fine dry qualities only sold 
ildwly at the previous rates, those in bad order 
bcJOR neglected. A snddeo rise in discount having 
checked apecnlatioD, there was very little doing in 
foreimi beyond a retail demand, and hod sales been 
Totoed lower qnoLations must bave been accepted, 
iiarc upeciaUv for new. Floating cargoea went 
off abwly at tlie previons currency. The dull re- 
pnrtg from London and the state of the money 
mirket appeared generally to influence trade in the 
roaotry. Many places noted a decline of fully Is. 
ptr ^r. ; among them were Boston, Bury St. Bd- 
oand's, Gainshoroogh, Market Rasen, Stockloa- 
on-Tces, and Briatol. Some were down Is. to 3s. 
9^ qr., SB Spalding, Newark, and Newbury ; but 
HdD, Birmingham, and Gloucester made little dif- 
ference in prices. Liverpool gave way 3d. per 
nntal on Tuesday, and there was no rally on the 
following market. In Scodand, Glasgow and 
BdinbD^li reported great heaviness in the trade, 

with eaaier rates for low qaalitiea. Dublin wat 
dull, bnt the small quantity of wheat on ahow kept 
price* as before. 

The second Monday commenced with inproved 
Engliah and good foreign supplies. Though tlie 
near counties sent up bnt a moderate show of fresh 
samples, these, with those over-left during the pre- 
viou week, made a fair exhibition on the En^lidi 
stands. The bulk being but iu poor condition, 
there was quite an anxiety to sell, on the part c^ 
factors, who ivonld gladly have made a clearance at 
3s. per qr. below the previous terms, after a few 
picked lots were taken at about Is. per qr. less 
moneys bnt the trade was averse to business, and 
the bulk remained on hand. Transactions in foreign 
were very limited, with prices somewhat in favour 
of buyers. Arrivals off the coast being small, 
prices were unchanged. The country markets 
were again partly influenced by the London de- 
cline, and general reports of dulness were received, 
but some among them withstood all attempts to 
force down prices. Among these were Ipswich, 
Bury St. Edmunds, Rochester, St. Ives, and Glou- 
eester. Others were only Is. per qr. lower, as 
Leeds, Louth, Lynn, Boston, Oainaborough, and 
Wolverhampton ; but Hull, Stockton, and Spalding 
were Is. to 2s. per qr. cheaper. Liverpool noted a 
decline of 3d. per cental on Tuesday, and wss duU 
again on Friday, without quotable change. Edia- 
burg snd Glasgow quoted Is. per qr. leaa money, 
and Dublin about the same reduction. 

The supplies for the third Monday were about 
the same as on the previous week, both in English 
and foreign qualities. The weather previously 
being fine, the moderate show of English mialitiea 
waa improved in condition, both on the Kentish 
and Essex stands: but with Christmas immediately 
in prospect, and money matters only sUghtly im- 
proved, there was vary little disposition on the 
part of millers to bay. The few samples sold were 
placed at the former rates, but to have cleared the 
bulk less money must have been accepted. The 
foreign trade was almost as slack, but holders were 
not anxious to press sales, vrith the doubtful aspect 
of European politics. Cargoes afloat being but few 
in number, were unaltered in value. The Christ. 
mas holidays occurring this week, the country 
marketa partook of a holiday character. Some 
were Is. per qr. lower, others only reported busi- 
ness in suspense. Liverpool was cheaper 3d. per 
cental ; Ghu^w and Edinburgh, as well as Dublin, 
being almost without trade. 

The fourth Monday began on the smalleat Eng- 
lish and largest foreign supply of the month. The 
Essex and Kentish stands were very scantily pro- 
vided with fresh samples during the morning, and 
though the condition was fair the stuns indisposition 
to business was evinced by millera, so that for want 
of trade prices were nominally the same. There 
waa, however, some little doing in foreign at for- 
mer rates, especially for fine old qualities, while 
new were quite unsought. Cargoes afloat were 
held at previous quotations. 

The imports into London for the four weeks 
were 31,30g qrs. English, 71,088 qrs. foreign, 
against 33,447 qrs. English, 111,460 qrs. foreign

IIb folloiriD{{ "notes" with which we have been 
tToarH by Mr. Beever are far too good for us to 
iotafcre with: — 

"Of the old white mare there ia notbinf; to

c\enr trotter, and a nusuve specimen of the Ur^e

taintj in the rite of the produce resoltiDg from this 
cnw. The colt« Mem to alternate in siie. One 
rar 1 cob ia bom, the next year a full-siied 
GItera-two, and the next again a cob. Thia old 
nun, of which I write, ia the dam, by a most com- 
moDpUce small roadster sire, of the dappled i^rey 
pony that won a prise of the Royal Agricultural 
Society at Caaterbury, where she was petted by 
^r bands, and fed with queen-cakes to such a 
■Kgree that her career waa nearly cut short, on her 
Rtnrn home, through an apoplectic eeizurs. A 
jculing by Rerenge out of the old mare ia a per- 
fect Kcin ai yet, and just what I aimed at as a 
breeder, having a faultleaa head, and excellent 
pTopartioDs for a low and lengthy blood-hack of 
feihion and anbattnce; coming op to be fed already 
mh eiaetlj that admirable grandeur of gait that 
dittioguiibed the broad-chested Sledmere mares 
u ther mored astonished round the ring of sale. 

" 1 hare the old mare and four grey daughters, 
ul of which will ultimately be bred from if the 
WW nicks. 

" Bebg apparently half asleep as she was dranm, 
she does her position drill instructor great dis- 
"WJit, as in nature the stands qnite square, having 

no tendency whatever to such cow-hock appear- 
ance. I don't think the prinl does tbepamtbig 
justice as regards her ana her foal, "niey are 
too hud and flat. 

" Her companion, the brown mare, is of quite 
another stamp. Shs is herself a specimen of the 
first cross between a blood-horse and a stout pony. 
She had the disadvantage of being got by Gaper, 
a aire whose disposition her astonishing powers of 
lasting belie. She is a clever trotter and a good 
jumper, and might have made a galloway steeple- 
chaser ; but It was by her marrcUons speed that she 
won the name of provincial celebrity that she has, 
being a sort of South Wales Blink Bonny. Her 
name,'PoUyBrowo,'was,s few years since, a house- 
hold word with every man, woman, and child 
throughout the coantry. There was not a frieze- 
coated farmer in Gower, nor a miner in the whole 
district, who did not or would not stake more than 
he ought upon her chance of winning whenever 
she ran ; and U> this day the old Swansea fish- 
women will arrest the snctiou of their short black 
pipes at the very mention of her name, to recount 
their recoUeclions of her prowess. 

" She ran in numberless races, as well as in 
matches aninst time, and ia said to have beea 
only ttrice Deaten — once when she was not wanted, 
and again, when caught up from grais by her im- 
petuons Celtic owner, she was started against full- 
sited platers on a course where Mr. Farr once nie, 
and Clothworkerran. Notwithstanding her diaad- 
vantage, nothing could catch her for fnll three- 

?uarters of a mile, and ahe finished a good third. 
n galloping ahe seems to bound as it were off 
India-rubber, and the rapidity of her strokes just 
realizes ona'a conception of what the knowing mean 
when they talk of 'greased lightning' and 
' kicking flashes.'

themselves upon, have Renerallr been brought out 
of a Welah drove. I would that some one coutd 
work up these precious elements, ai Suffolk haa 
done her cart-hordea. But Mr. Talbot will, I 
expect, do much with Revenue." 

A portrait of this horse. Revenge, appeared ia oui 
MaKBziae for May, while Mr. Beever himself intro- 
duced the little nag into South Wales, as be also 
has some Suffolk horsea and Shorthorn cattle, all of 
the best of their kind. His taste for a ruia] life has 
elao developed itaelf in other waja, as be is the 

author of the Royal Agricaltura] Soeietr** V^k 
eaaay on " The Time of Entry on Farma," as wcU 
as of a work, published by Chapman and Hill, 
modestly entitled " Noteson FUldtand Cattle," bat 
one of the most genoine and delightful eooDtry 
books that has been seen for many a long dif. 
After being in residence there for some yeart. Mi, 
Beever left Cowbridge a few weeks since, th« oca- 
aion of bis departure btin^ seiaed upon at ihg 
opportunity by bis many fnends for preeentinf; 
him with a handsome testimonial of the reipectin 
which he was held in the district, Mr. Beers, 
however, has not gone br away from them, 
having purchased a property on the binka of 
the winding Wye, and where no doubt he will 
work up something morefrom togoodafoondalion 
as the Welsh pony. 



" Last year we had but eleven Suisez cattle, but 
that usefid breed now numbers thirty entries, and 
Mr, Shoosmilh'a first priie steer is just the sort for 
the meat market. . . The Sussex evince still 
farther advancement in that style and quality so 
observable on the last few occasions." 

It was thus we wrote in our last number on the 
Smithfield Club Show, and here ia the Sussex 
Friie Steer. Ue was bred by Mr. Shoosmith, 
bnng by Nimrod, out of Golden, by Stlmes ; and 
two years and ten months old when exhibited at 
Islingtou. Both the sire and dam were also bred 
at Berwick, and the latter herself took two pre- 
tniums at local shows, while two of her produce 
have been winners in London— «ne in 1861 and the 
other in 1863. Even further, Golden made her 
14lbs. of butter a week — pretty well for a Sussex, 
which as a breed are not generally considered good 
milkera. However, Mr. Shoosmith thinks they 
have only to be better known to be mors appre- 

ciated, as " they have the quality of the Derail with 
more sise, and are taken by the Butchers to be, iie~' 
to the Scots, the best fleshed animAls they kill." 

This steer was shown in the week previeiu 10 
his coming to town at the Brighton Fat Stwk 
Show, where be took the second prise, and Mr. 
W. Wood's beast the first, tbeir places boiig 
reversed by the Smithfield Club authorities, u,it 
fact, were nearly all the Sussex awards. Mi. 
Shoosmith has only a small herd, but since be bu 
figured as an exhibitor no one has been more 
cessful. Datbg from the establisbmeat of the 
Sussex Class in London, be has shown six aDimaU 
and taken four prizes, three firsts and a Kcond; 
while in 1861 he won in sU ten Snt piim 
amounting to £13G in very hard cash, 

We are only sorry to add that the Beimd 
stock is not yet registered in the Sana V*ri 
BwA, a palpable mistake that cannot b« loa mm 



Soma recently-reported leiearolies of Professor An-

a heary srop. He banled aome of the tools home, and 
conanmed them with straw, hay, and oilcake, Ihaa preparing 
a valuable s^ply of nunnre for the next root crops. His 
cooain, Ur. Hoiborow, of Tresham, waa not in the habit of 
topping his Bwedea when he put them in heaps, and fnund

of this clop, it being necessary to its full developtuent and 
profit that it ahonld not receive a check, from the time of. 
its seeding to harvesting. The barley aeeding abould 
neit he completed. It is, however, immaterial as to 
whicli baa precedence, either the barley or the bean 
seeding. Tba barley is to be preferred, na being more 
easily got in, and taking less labour than the bean seed- 
ing. The land, also, intended for barley is generally in a 
lighltr and more f^edy-wotldiig elate than beau-laud ; 
neither doea it require to be put in so de^ly as oats and 
pesa. It ia soon np, and grows with greater rapidity 
than any other grain, and ja cnniequently more liable t<) 
iiuury from cutting winds or late frosts. The bean 
seeding may come last ; bat it is all the better to be nit 

greater erpedition. However, most taimers 
are gmaea m their work by the time and manner of ita 
falling in. The grecu crops may uot be eaten off, thus 
preventing the oat or barley seeding, or the manuring for 
peas or beans, which has not been completed, and ao these 
seedinga are defemul. My reuuulu, of course, rcftr ouly 
to caaes where no snch hindrances occur. The same ob- 
tetvutions may aervc to ahow the futility also of thui early 
preparing tba bmd fiir apiiog-aeediDg. It is folly to 

plough ao early, and lay op the land preparatory lo a 
'' IE. The like unfavouivble weather iomv 

A abortive. It may be dcnrable to plough 


than the & 

pro> - - , . ^ 

lightly the land upon which a bulky crop of irinter food 
hae been fed off. It preserves the value of the abcep'a 
dropping for the soil, but generally audi land abould 
be reploBghed before aeeding. 

It may be obierved that good (ubaoU drainage doe* in 
a grat measure make a farmer independent of untoward 
Mosana. This certainly ia the bet, and, to a certain 
extent, he is able to act upon it. He can, undoubtedly, 
hia aeeding with much greater facility and certainty 
' ' who cultivates undrained land; but gtill, 

aeuc«s are against him. U is more prudent 
'Witneaa the power of a keen &ost opou the 
young planta — how brown or iron-coloored thqr look ; 
what numbers die, and what a length of time elapses before 
thegeuend ciup r«cover»itsbealliy sppeaiance. Beside*, 
if the other view is taken ; suppose the season waited tor 
is propitiona, and the seeding it all got in advantageously ; 
the Harch dust and April showers give every aid that can 
be desired to promote the aafe and speedy growth of the 
erop. All goes on aiffluUaDeooaly, all goes on evenly and 
kindly, and all ^ke ia brooght forward to perfection, so 

wonder if niany inexperienced 
or specnlative larmcra give way to the temptation — most 
^bobly to their hurt. I, however, say no more than 
this — that they haw their w - > -^

Witttd on it, and when we saw them tley had been

bu. Infut, green tarts make milk rather than beef, and 
Vr. M'Cdmlne ha* long ibjnred them. The first lot were 
otis« tbeir oat-itraw and Aberdoea yellows, and the 
^eddioB were jndisiottsly darkened to encourage digES- 
l'^ "id Tepon.] Th^ were all threei-and-fonn, and

" Doddyiim"), blacks with homi pointing one op and tha

" mark of the bcatt" on bii buttock, or the real Pagan 

The sample grew higher as we went on, and 
reached the Christmu table candidates fai boUi metro- 
polises, and Idverpool aa well. Twenty of them stood in 
at £23 12b. Sd., twenty-eight at £35 6a.. and twenty at 
£20 10s.— aU from Mr. Robert M'Issock's, of Orange 
Green, near Forres, while a smaller lot of letenteen cama 
from Dandsleath in Morayshire. On we went thraugb 
the rest — four bbcks together, and very difficult to whip 
apart -, two ripe grey* ; a black grey, pretty nearly the 
head of tho lot ; and then, cloae bj a red roan with ^nite 
Harmndnke crops, stood a spotted monster of foil seven- 
teen handi. Mr. M'Combie drily polished off this Magog 
as "just a heavy beast for shipping," and be was 
finally sold by Mr. Bibbons at Liverpool for £62. 
" That completes the eighty," and then came another lot 
loose in the sheds, ready to take their place in the double 
■tails as Boon as the Christmas beaits have gone. We 
had not time to go in search of the bull Champion, 
as it was long past noon, and a brief November day 
was not to be tnflod with, and ao with a glance at tlu 
beantitUly cross-gartered oat-stacks, which stood in 
platoons four deep, with William Turner, the bailiff, as 
chief-architect, we once more sped on onr wly. 

There waa nothingfto take ns to the Castle of Crsjgie 
Var, whose strong black loam on the granite has furnished 
Hr. M'Combie with some of his richest pasturage, 
and we tnmed off to the "training" quartan 
at Bridge End. Its SSO acree aie rented 1^ Mr. 
M'Combie, from his cauain at Easter Skene, and John 
Benziea, with his blue blouse and Kilmarnock bonnet, is 
captain of the depSt. His military decoration is the 
Dutrone medal, presented to him at Poiaay, as the eervant 
longest in command of polled cattle. John is a perfect 
almanack on the subject of ht shows, which seem to act at 
mileatonea on his journey of life. After all his travels by sea 
and land, he may be aaid to have lived so mneh among tha 
shouts and the breaken (of which hia master his given 
such a vivid catalogoe in a recent controversy) that it 1* 
only wonderful to see him in the fiesh at all. The neat-baned 
Ritfemau by Bob Koy, from Pride of Aberdeen, who 
was first in his class at Battersea, is his pecuUar charge ; 
and then came seven dozen buUocks, of which at loat 
seven-and-twenty were "tops," and getting specially 
sent along upon cake and com. Tiite iH them, however, 
were on the re»erve-li«l for neit yrar'i shows ; or will 
at least have the benefit of the donbt, when dieir com- 
panions are dispersed by March into many a British larder. 

The whole of the shedding is more useftal than oml' 
mental, and heather, tiles, alate, wood, and thatch, all 
play their part in the roofing. It waa beie that the great 
Poissy bollock was fed, and John waxed eloquent at tba 
remembrance of him, although neither he nor his master 
have heard his weidit to this boor. Thrice has John 
crossed the Channd, left til bullocks behind him and 
brought back £STO, a cup, seven gold medals, two pnt 
gold medals, and silver and bronia geiore. A_ ^Qj-

Ucwra. OiKBETT AND SoM, of Leiaton Works, Sai-

Diukip bang perceptible in ererj article. There was 
Me cajrital speemien of tiicir eight-horse power road 
''■^tna eogia«, mounted on improved block springs, 
•hieh relieve the engine of all jar or vibration while it is 
tnv^ing, and consequently reduces the wear-and-tear. 
TU moke-boi, cylinder, and hnnel bottom are all in a 
BD^ casting, a Mpital piece of workmanahip. The engine 
i> sonneeted with the driving-wheel bv means of an 
ndku diain passing over a ehun-wheel key^ fiat to the

iltcifctha', tlu engine ii compact, and the genen 
■Rmgonait show that the firm hai not in vain ei 
icwwnd to pmjde for a very plainly-expressed want o 

the part of the pnbltc. They showed a lamoua twalve- 
horae power portable engine, and one of the well-known 
combined thrashing and finiahing machines, in which, by a 
clever arrangement, several blasts are obtained by one ud 
the same bo. The bearings are Few, and so extenuJlj

Wu. STBivaNS, Godolphia-road, Hammersmith, Iion-

him honour at Worcester. How the matter will be settled 
between him and Mr. Fowler seems ss yet a little unde- 
cided ; bnt he is receiving and eiccnting orders for his 
implement, which ia mueh liked where it has been worlced. 
II now is shown materially strengthened, and better 
fitted to deal with the work which put it ^ra de eomiat 
at Worecater. Ilia implement, it may be deiirable to 
state, is perfectly parallel, and of equal height fTtmi back 
to front. It consists ot two frames, the upper one filed, 
sad the nnder one divided into two porliona, each 
being independent. The plough-bo^es are fixed to the 
under frame, and are elevated and depressed by means of 
a rack and pinion. This rack and pinion renders the 
entry of the ploughs into the soil perfectly certua, and 
fixed as to depth. The furrow tide of the plough is 
graduated in inches, so that the plonghman can pitch at 
[rieasut« tbe depth to which he wishes to go. The plo^b 
rides on fonr wheels, three b^ug on tbe land tide. Tlie 
driving-wheels measure S ft. S in. in diameter. The total 
weight it nbont IS cwt. The plough is steered by means 
of a rack and pinion, turned by n wheel, ii^idcr the command 
of the ploughman. 'Hie price of the four-furrow -plough is 
£aS. He also showed a set of sppamtus, consisting of 
the plough and grubber combined, a well-made ten-horae 
portable engine, with windlass, and other attendant 
articlea, ralue £470.

R*trsoxE3 AND SiHB, Ipiwich, Soffolk, show Iheir 
strength in til dlrectiDoi, from an 8-horse power steam 
engine to a cake breaker, their mannftcture* being gene- 
raUy characterised by simplicity of constmction, ease of 
leptir, eioellence of workmiaihjp and miteiiol, and, con- 
sidering the combinatioa of these qnnlitiet, of cheapnEas. 
No firm, we believe, was earlier in the Held, or has done 
more lo promote that age of progreas in which we now 
r^oise. Their plongh* still maintain a very high posi- 
tion : ia barrows they hare reoently introduced some im- 
provement*. They snowed a set of what ate termed 
tolid /rami harraat," tha fromR b«ng vronghtiroa 
riveted together, and not nooneeted by the bttening* of 
the teeth. The t«eth are indqiendent, of plain soaan 
iron, equally strong thronghoot, and without i shomder, 
They are bstened to the frame by clip* end screwi, ia a 
wsy whiob renders them perfectlyrfgid, and their lengfli 
cay be r^pilited at pleaanre. We discovered alto a new 
paltnl joinltd harrev, in vrhieh the teeth are itUched to 
a Jomted (tame, which allows them with the irreatest fh> 
oiUty to follow the irregnlirities of the aoil. There were 
tevCFal root cattera, chaff cnttera, com and cake cnuhen, 
combined and nnivenil mill* of eieellent make, and the 
A I steam thraihing and flniahing machine, eontainiog th« 
patent adjurtohle rotary wire com acreen, which forms a 
most adminhle finisher. 7%e S-horse portable engine 
poBsessei a few improvement* worthy of mention. The 
foreoirriage snpport* the boiler on a bill-ind- socket Joint, 
which preventa much strain over rongh road* ; the gover- 
nor! are very simple, takiag eSkctire and direct bold of 
the throttle-Tilvoi and two tie.rods are introdnced between 
the cylinder and tha brackets, which tend to relieve the 
Sy-wh»el bracket* of much strain. The Tietorii naper

Wooca Aim Cocuidoi, SuflHilk Iron Woika, Slow-

oterkps the wood frame and prevenla it from being rotted 
by damp. They showed also one of their celebiated priie 
portable eom'grinding millsi fitted with Londou-bailt 
French burr stones, fixed in itrong inn frunei. The 
mode in which these itooei con be instaatly set for wheat 
or bulay is very simple. Tha speciineiu of ban 
machineiT compriied thiaahing and dresung machines

plough or cultivator backwarda and forwarda. In this caae 
the enginea are both tocomotiTe, of courae ; but Mr. Hall 
hu made an eudavonr to adapt hia ajatem to the 
ordinary portable farm engines of the day. We would 
not advise him to bestow mnch attention on this armnge- 
meot however, but to give his undivided attention to the 
perfection of the first arraagement, which yet abonnda 
with many difflcnltie* of det^. This has been tried by 
Hr. Hall npon his own farm, and found to work vary 
well, and aa we hope .to give a report of it from Princei 
Gate Farm, we wiU let this noUce now snfflce. 

T. V. AsHBT & Co., Stamford, for many year* maon- 
factniera of fint-ebaa agricaltnnl machinery, are atill at 
thcii atand. Thdr new patent haymaker, posaeasing all 
the advantagea oF the original hsymakera, which may be 
called the parent of haymaken, hu been much simplified. 
The main aile ia now aolid, and carries eitcmal diifling 
apparatus, which can easily be got at by the worknuui. 
The machine is itrengtbened, and the gearing is so arranged 
tliat the revolving forks are instantaneou^ reversed by 
the driver, withont hia being obliged to lave the hone. 
It ii stated that two thonsand of the old machiuea have 
been sent out, and a large number of tbeae haTC gone 
abroad. They show a series of their well-known cbaff- 
cattera, eake mills, a four-horae power portable steam- 
engine — a much approved macliiae — with combined 
thrnaher and combined foiu-horse power portable grinding 
mill, £36. Hie rotating harrows are exhibited, and the 
service they have rendered to the many purchasen has 
elicited a quantity of lestimoniala contained in the cata- 
logue. Where they work at all, there is roson to eipect 
them to work weU. The teeth of the ardioiiy hanuw 
working panllel with tlie linea of the furrow alicea leave 
those livery fwrow-sUcea too frequently in thrir integrity 
even alter paaaing over them three or (bur times. The 
heavy-land fanner wishes only that he coold cross the 
land ; once woold cover the seed, bnt he dare not. The 
horses muat be kept in the fiirniw ; and here i> the means 
by which, the horses walking in the (brrows, the harrows 
may still work at right-a^es to the ftirrows, which 
aie thoroughly broken np before and after the drill. 
Drawn by steam they are doubly effective, for the increased 
pace gives the quicker rotary motion,

are more prevalent and fatal where a low state of health 
and nnelennliness prevails, and that by cleanlineas and Ihe 
free nae of certain repellent medioal subitancee Ihe eon-

BOD why onr rich hill-fed beef and mnttoa will keep fur

will not keep twanty-fonr hoars, is— becanse the former 
aontaias a lsr|e sBSBOningof antiseptlo and other medldnal 
imperties derived from the herbage oonmmad, and whioh 
u always present in the natnral find of oar oattle, whereas 
the latter (Ihe abnormal meat) is not only deficient of sach 
antioeplia properties, bnt it contains mnoh imperfcatly or-

of the very oppoaile chiraoter, via,, matter that attracts 
tha apoiea of fnngi and other organic matler, together 
vlih inorganlo matter always present in the atmoaphcre. 
Now anch being the qnalily of the meat when newly

To a certain eitent, I may aay to a very greet eiUnt, 
■Here is a lively prqudice againit draini^ ; but in some 
wrli— pjrticuki^, for iurtance. in tlio sonth-cait of Eaaei, 
I Itud that, until a good tenant-right Uw gives security to 
the t«ant for his inyestment, no grest improTemcnt will 

ensue in this reapect. I hays met with gEutlcmeu who, 
although they approve of drainage, conaider that they may 
pay loo dear forproTidiag a quick and lafc passage of the 
rain to tho bogndniy ditchee. Drainage, where no tenant- 
right law eiista, is clearly a landlord's question. It is his 
money tbat should beinvested in the pcnnancnt improve- 
ment of hia estate, and the tenant alioiild only be looked to 
for annual interest upon the outlay. 

On this and other pointa fiumera must moke their

About a year «ince 1 had occadon to 
the able manner in which ateam wai being employed in 
the tillage operation of the (arm by Meaara. Blythc and 
Squire, near Tilbury. I am now ibont to deuiibc the 
change which is being wrought by Fowler's ateam-plon^ 
upon a large farm, in the pariah of Little Stambrid^, nrar 
Sonlhend, and now in the occupation of Mr. William Allen. 
Thu gentleman farms very nearly 3,000 acres in seven 
diStoent tBrma, some portion of the land going to form 
part of thoae iilands created b; arms of the river Cronch, 
which empties itself into the North Sea, on the south-eaat 
of the county. The land for (he most pact is heavy, and 
ploughed wiUi three hones. The lubsoil is nearly in all 
cases a blae or a yellow clay. Sometimea this adheaiva 
earth il fbond on the top, altsmaling with a sand or a 
graveL The lighter land producei s^endid crops of 

' itoea, mangdds, &c., and the heavier of wheat and 

Mr. Alien has used his steam-tacVle with great effect 
upon Wallace Island, one of thoseislandamentioiied above. 
T^ atqile there eonusta of 4 feet ot bloe clay, which is 
plonghed with Hate horses. The land having been re- 
claimed from the sea, is, aa nsual, intersected by the wind- 
ing ehanuels by wkicli the sea-water naed to find iti 
to and &om it, when it lay subject to the diurnal 
flow. The boundaiieB being so irr^ular, a gi eat deal ol 
difficulty is eiperienced in using the ateun-tachle to ai 
lOOtagB; bat it ao chancea that the land heie, being 
anch a kind that It can only be worked at a partieohu 
time, the aniiliary force proves moat valoable. 

It is always now the case that the land destined to grow 
roots ia brolieD up deeply and cleaned in the autumn, in- 
stead as formerly in the spring. The winter aeration and 
f^Mst are considered eqnal to a good coat of dnng ; and the 
dni^ which is thus spared is expended wiUi great e^t 
elsewhere. The horses, too, have been released from very 
hard and wearing work. The niunbei has not been re- 
duced, but a great many breeding mares have been em- 
ployed, which, lightly worked, piove a source of con- 
siderable profit. From Mar to the 29lh of September 
the steam-engine has been doing the work of 21 horses 
daily, that is, of seven three-horse teams. Such is Mr. 
Allen's atatonent; and he considers this estimate "be- 
low the mark." The plon^^iing has been done at con- 
siderable disadvantage, tor the land lyin^ 10 ftet bebw 
high-water level, presents difBcnlties to the drainer, and 
rendeiB the existence of stetches and water-CiUTows not a 
matter of option. Now stetches are obstadea to the 
progress of the work ; for where they measure 8 feet S 
inchea acraas, and a cultivator which covers B feet 3 inches 
has to make one bout on each stetch, it is clear that 4 feet 
6 inches is lost each time ; and that instead of ten acres 
day the outside cannot be more than seven or eight. Not 
withstanding thia dnivbaek a good tale of work has been 
poformed, aa the following list ot details will show,

wmbiatd wili deep enltore. There is yet one great ob- 
iUde— the ^tetmee of water. It has been ogun and 
^ ibown, and 1gr no one more powerfiilly than by Mr. 


i laad. The beat meuu of hdghtening 

its tempoatnre is by lowering " the sock," which can only 
be done by effective drunage. In a dtnation snch as I 
have described Mr. Allen's to be— that ia, 10 feet betow 
high-water mark— it muat be snpposed that the ontldl ia 
not the beat in the world ; but, beyond this, the custom 
of the country, or the teigneurial conditions, I forget which, 
have imposed other difficulties in the way of thorough 
drainage. The landlord will supply pipes, which the 
tenant may employ ss he pleases, on condition that he 
covers them wiUi three inchea of cockle ahella — a useless 
addition, which increases what without it is a suffidently 
eipendve operation, by abont £1 an acre. Snch an arbi- 
trary condition shodd be at once removed ; and where 
tenants withhold from risking their own capital in draiuBge, 
' of thdr possesaiug no lease, and no tenant-right 

interest hy having the land well drained at hia 
own coat, and ehaigii^ Uie tenant a reasonable per-centage 
on tbe outlay. 

The acquirement of steam power to hdp him in the cd- 
tivation of thia strong land has afforded the utmost satia- 
faction to Mr. Allen. Ills eipenaea have been reduced, 
his yearly area of cropping has been enlai^ed, and his an- 
nual returaa have been increased. 

The ignorance displayed by a recent comapondoit of 
the lime* would receive ita best rebuke were the writer to 
make a visit to Stanbridge, So far traia ttiaua cdturo 
having proved a failure there, Mr. Allen is thinldug of 
employing two sets of stam apparatus — not of abandoning 
the one he has slrcad; ; and certaidy no one who saw lo 
much of him as I did could leave hia hospitable roof irith 
the conviction that steam was regarded in any hght than 
as a simple means of enlarging his profits. 

In thia world man ia mndi given lo depend upon pre- 
cedent. WealHookfarthefootstepabcfbrous.eieeptcertain 
brave and independent spirits, who create the precedent* 
which serve as infallible guides to those who are conteat 
to foUow. They, looking to the point they desire to reach, 
make straight tawaida it, undistnrbed by any footpslhi 
that may happen to cross the line they have deddcd upon. 
Men are as obseqaions to rde and tniditiend proeednre in 
^riculture as most other things. The landowner seeks as 
pertinaciously for his precedent as the tenant-hrmer — nay, 
mora so ; and, as a rule, ndther will move without it. 
We owe a debt of thanks, thcrefiin, to those who, in the 
interest of progreas, have the manliness to annannce u new 
way, and thns occasionaily to break the martinet spell 
which encircles the busy mdtitude. and makes them 
governable. Were it not for such occurrences we shodd 
be at a dead-lock, Hkc the ChinEse, who eiyDyed their 
present d^ree of dviliiation when our rude ancestry of 
the woods and cavei were chewing earth-nuts, and render- 
ing their bodies horrible for war, with v^etable juices. 

In England we have reason to think with pride of many 
an original thinker, who, when the old methods were be- 
coming ineSdent, pointed oat the defect, and hdped to 
create new ones better adapted to the ncccaaitiea of the 
times. As r^ords sgricdtnre, the present state of the 
land, the crops, the cattle, and the work-people, aa com- 
pared with what they were one hundred ycara ago, testify 
to the bold creation of a rapid auceeasion of new pre- 
cedents, having no likeness to anything recorded in thoio 
early times. Ten years ago was created that rnle which 
recognizes steam aa the necessary substitute for horse- 
power in the fidd, and which fanners generallv are now 
preparing ta follow. It is hard to say what individual 
shodd have the credit of first atriking out this original 
idea; hnt I rather think thai, dthongh several mechanics

eumple u those to whom ta inuaediate remtrrencc to it 
appear* to be pre-eminently caaential. Wicli the old 
appliances, the teoant-lhrmer knows that he cannot raise 
wheat at 4>. a bushel, sad so meet the foreign pcodnee ia 
the BritUh market on equal temia. Steam, especiallv on 
some soils, may enable him to do this, and more, and he 
i* therefore aiiiioui]f lookiog to its csiplovraent. Uis 
power to adopt it sncceaafullf dq)cnds opon toe proprietor 
of whom ho rents Iho land ; lor with amaU enclosures, 
irregular bonndaries, and antiquated coreiianti, he could 
only work a iteam ploogh at a loss. The proprietor, whose 
neenalty for change is not so inmiediate and obvious, is 
staggered when applied to, to remove, or bUpw to be re- 
moved, the field boundary lines, which are now as they 
an teea to bave been on the old tithe map which rots in 
the parish vsatn. A* no such thing ever did occur, the 
qoertiou is whether it over should or oould occur. Tradition 
in this owe oppose* reason with a fearless front, and the 
Mnidi7 1* nJlad npon to pnichaie tram other uatioos 
ttetj year much corn that oonld be produoed at home. 
In aiuwer to the appeal, "This isabxadlord'sqiiestiaa,"it 
I* laid, " Steam cultivation will come without as" ; and so 
Ml the part of the landlorda thera appears to be a check 
given to the tenant-farmers in theit desire to Duke their 
anpply equal to the demand. 

Tnm the ihiTish adherence to precedent, however, 1 
can happily quote sereral eiceptiont, like those of the Earl 
St. O^mains, who has ^ven Hr. Ruck penniuina to re- 
model hii finn, and lay it out iu blocks, intersected bv 
hard engine road*. Uis example I have already quoted, 
I am now about to quote e another, which will eo far* 
ther to show how much benefit may be derived &om 
preparing famia for steam cultivation, both by the landlord 
and the tenant, and with what perfect safety the course 
mi^ he adopted. 

It is neceasan, however, that landowner* should not 
only grant penousiou to their tenantry to remove hedge- 
rows and create hard ruads. Aa a rule those onterprising 
men who parchase steam tackle have more than enough 
to do to pay for the tackle the Srat year. The pemusaioa 
would only avail with tenants wlioaremen of capital. So 
lar a* the commuaity of farmers is conceroed this most be 
a proprietors' question. And why not 7 Whera, I ebould 
be glad to be told, can he £ud a better investment for his 
money than m an improvement, which, if it be stiff clay 
land, will, in five yean, increase its rent bv 10a, an acre, and 
yield him an immediate annual return of S or S per cent, on 
the actual sum eipended F Better bi such good dividend* 
fhnn this sonrce, tban from risky speculationi on the Stock 
Exchange, where every man is seeking to £nd a bigger 
fbol than himself. Mr. Smith, of Waclston, gives n posi- 
tive case, to show that iu consequence of the improved 
condiUon of land held by bimaelf, the Parochial Assess- 
ment Committee (appointed under 26th and 26th Vict., 
oap. 103], have "shoved it up 10s. per acre overavery 
fhir rate made siitaon years ago by agentlemansent down 
by the Tithe Commiisloneri to value and assess the tithes 
ot the pariah, on which the valuation of the raXe was 
based-" And brmers who are ready to pay a fair rate of 
Interest for capital expended by thdr luidiorda on such 
improvementa as they deem neeetsary to profitable farm- 

ing; may be met with on every estate. A bim that lia is ! 
seven and _ten-acre fielda cannot be enltiTnted by ilomla 
advantage. Four or five of the*e enBlomre* want Uuoaigg 
into one, asd the whole could be dealt with at lot <i. 
penae than two-thiida of the quantity as it now Get, 1 
ssw, the other day, two twelve-acre fields sepanUd bj t 
narrow field of six acre* ; making, by its irregular kei^. 
row, all three fields mast difficult to cdtivate. The ccotiT 
field was plonghed by horses, the other two by itean, IV 
hedge-rowa once removed, and there lies a fine mui^ 
able plot easy to cultivate ; but the landlord nyi, 
" No, 1 suppose he thinks the internal ^viuon of (kt 
fitrmas mnchuie subject of entail as the land itself. He 
trath will penetrate hii mind sooner or later, I coujcctgR, 
and the more rapidly as the examples of those who mn- 
pose the van of progress is mote widely followed. 

As I chance to meet with them, then, I intend to hoU 
up to view these ^ecimens of what may and should \t 
done in order lo EacQitate the introduction of itam, isil 
give it " a fair fiehl" by the great landed prof rietera. 

Mr, Jdin Front, of Blount's Farm, Sawbridgevoith, 
Herts, pnrohaaed the land he now oDcn}ne* in tiie suIdbs 
of IDfll, and baa ainoe bnnad it. The fijat thing he iii 
wsa to order a set of steam apparatus of iSi. Fowkr, U 
was the idea of being one of the first in the field Ic n^ 
the advantage to be daived from breaking no this bur; 
alay soil to a great depth, that led him to make the nn- 
tnre. Uis next care was to remove all obstacles tu iti 
sueoessful working. Being hi* own maat«r, he set iluit 
clearing away every internal hedgerow, and every i^ of 
timber which infested them g of filling up the open dnin; 
of draining deeply, and conveying the water by ca<ncd 
ducts to the ontfaUa i of hying the whole area (i]ko, lai 
interseclinjc it at convenient distance* with peruiuuil 
grass and hard roads ; and of sinking wcUs here and dm

estates, aod other properties jtdtod into his, and reuiienl 
necessary the empumnent of more horaea for the cultin. 
tion of odd* and ends than ho would otherwise have keW. 
He therefore efiiscted cxchangea with the proprietors n9 
surround him, and has now secured a compsrattTel; mi- 
form boundary line. The line was made in some iustures 
by purchase. He originally bought 4G0 acres; to lies 
he Eias added 10 by purchase, and to hia efl^ve con. 
growing area he has added 25 acres which wen fbnadj

to sap ita nourishnicut aud shade its prodaee, a course 
would be adopted more in accordance with the tea«hinga 
of modem science. 

For the sake at showing the benefits of the change, aa 
yet only partially carried out, I propose to mention cer- 
tain actual results reoped by Mr. Front. 

The soil is a plaatic clay, overlying a churliih yellow 
clay, intcrminglod with clulk atonea. The top soil is pli- 
able, and hxika easy to work ; but the sticlcy nature of the 
snbioil rendera it necessary to employ more power than 
would be eipected only to turn a furrow Ave inches deep. 
When the eatate was in two farms, the nnmber ot horses kept 
was twenty-one. Eigbtarenowkepti but before the squaring 
ot the ferm in the manner thnt I have described took place, 
a greater number was retained, ainec many namw slips 
running into other properties obliged tho owner to have 
recourse to horse-power, and to keep more cattle than he does 
now that he baa perfected his boundary line. Hie form 
was pnrchased ia Michaelmas, ISBl. It was in a fcsHiil 
Btate — flooded with water, mattedwitheonch,andsofor"ntn

acre as a parting memento lo the outgoing tenant. The 
work of iroptovement commenced at ooce, and the spade 
and pick soon made way for Fowler's steam ^ough, which 

Speared in October <a the aame year. There waa no 
ought of cropping for the next year. All eSbrt waa 
bent to rid the laud of the weeds that were sucking out ita 
vital energies. Tho hind, which never before had been 
turned up more than four inehea deep with three and tour 
horses, at the rat« of a mile or a mile-and-a-halt an hour 
— a glistening ftuTow-alica ant from the watery bed— waa

piece of SG acres, Bimilarljr worked, wai sown with beani, 
and manured with 3 mrt. of guano onl; ; the crop waj 
good, and the wheat which faliowed, without manim, 
wai eitimated by neighbouring Isrmen, who uid that the 
experimeater might only eipect to lee his leed again, at 
timj i qra. per acre. It ii thus the riches, tbe Intent 
riche* of (be toil, eo well ponrtrayed, at a late meeting of 
Britilh agriculturiat) for the promotion of ateam cultira- 
tion, bf Dr. Voolcker, are rendered available. The plan 
adopted b; Mr. Front is, to aecore the letd-furrow being 
made before the fall of the jtmi far rooti and gnin, and 
then nothing rcmuns to be done in the ipring but to 
harrow and drill. If tbii furrow muit be turned after 
the winter, the land ii lirery, and mikei but a lorry aeed- 
beil, be the harrow-tooth aa buay aa it maf . 

I juat got in time 
piece <rf work. "BiB land, whicl 
remarkablf fine crop of tamipa, wsa being cleared of it. 
Aa the roots were carried off, the plough followed, carry- 
ing two torrawi, and a tnbioiler between them. The 
plough tnmed a furrow 7 inchsi deep, the inbioiler 
■tirred below this to a depth of T inchei, so that the whole 
was broken up to a depth of 1 4 inches, and the lorface 
toil was kept on the top. This leed-fnrrow was for bar- 
ley. The operation performed with a 14-horac power 
engine, with 801b*. steam-preainre, coat £1 per acre, and 
is inrelj well worth it. Where will the watei stand this 
winter on that land? 

I came to one bit of SO acres, which had home barley. 
Two acres of it had been tilled by horse-power, the rest 
by steam, ill had been treated alike, yet at harrest com- 
petent authorities slated that the latter was a better crop 
by four sacks on acre than the fonner. The thrashing- 
machine muat prove this point. 

I fonnd all the wheat atnbbles turned np (130 icrei), 
etc^t what is intended far dead fallow this year, and it 
is thought wise, for cleansing purposes for a year or two, 
to retain the dead-bdlow system. Those stabbles in- 
tended tor roots hare been snbsoiled twelve inches deep. 
The wheat plant, nil on the Oct, looking splendid, growing 
on land whu^ mostly has been labsoiled to a depth of 14 

The engine hai been kept conatmtly- it woik, weather 
permitting, eveiy day at the year, in tillage operations, 
and not ^ut thrashing at all. Had the weather been 
better more would have been done, and, as it is, a g^nes 
at the following table will show that that worthy steam 
arm hu eqjoyed no linecnre.

From Ihia table we gather that about 900 acres ban

should anyone interested in theae Sgurei wiab to b»w 
the number of days' work here represented, it may be aA 
for ae to add that 31 acres of siibsoilii^ ia a good dt;'i

taking into accaunt all the items of elpense which ata

is as follows. After the wotk of 1862 the itiel-inre 
rope was supposed to be hilf wom ont, and a sum mi- 
sistent with such a state of things was placed agiiut tke 
titlage. In September last it was (bund neccssaiy ta 
obtain 450 yards of new rope, the old one being eqmi tn 
perhaps abont 600 acres of light icanfying. 'nitswoiiU 
represent a wear of rope eipressed by £20 (the new rape 
having sustained no perceptible wear). The cost of OTer-
