ions vary, and we hold our own. There
is nothing so certain as the uncertainty
of a horse race. Death was distanced in
that direction long ago.
The sun smiled benignantly on the
myriad policemen and departing figures
of the pleased spectators. To-morrow
will, we confidently predict, sec the
"show" in full blast. Then we shall see
what we shall see.
One of Winthrops poetical days. From
"early morn 'till dewy eve," Nature

So soon as seven, the class, fair-sus
taining, sprinkled the highway and hill
road to the receiving house "builded
with hands" at $2 a day. The capacity
of police, not less than space, was well
taxed The waiting and willing shelves,
broad, inviting tables and seductive
nooks, in Vegetable and Floral depart
ments, were satisfied that nothing was
created in vain. The hard fisted, enter-.
prising yeoman deposited his overgrown
Cabbages, beets and mammoth corn,
while his not less enterprising and am
bitious spouso made equally liberal and
far handsomer contributions to the Hall
Floral. This latter Department, to-day,
bid glad Vale, Vale to her skeptical at-.
tendants of yesterday, and with the as
sistance, and in the presence of beauty,
health and genuine rejoicing, proclaim
ed her sovereignty, and assumed her
royal crown, labelled SUCCESS. We will
let the Vegetable and Floral domains rest
for the day, content that no poaching
hand can lessen their value, or steal
their deserving thunder ere our special
and enumerative pencil chronicles their
The Mechanical Department was sen

additions and whole, we refrain until to-
The entries in the stock books were
favorable, yet lack in number and kind.
It is strange, unaccountably strange,
that these half dozen stalls are not occu
pied by some of the thousand fatted and
comely animals to be seen on a day's
drive through the county. It is wrong,
unpatriotic and reprehensible. Of this
idea, the stock and certain other ani
mals we add, "to be continued."
The daily p. m. trots were duly an
nounced, and did not. lack for interested
spectators. The hillside and sidehills
were well dotted with the various kinds
of the human race, mostly men, women
and children. First came the advertised
trot of double teams for the $3O premi
urn. Rikard entered his favorites,
"Harry Clay" and "Lew Petit"—Lee,
his gallant steeds, "Jersey Bill" and
"Tommy star." The warming•up pro
cess indicated a very closely contested
trial. First heat, both teams came up in
good order, and went off splendidly at
the word go, Rikard inside. Harry and
Lew . took the lead, and not for a moment
seemed Disposed to yield the advance.—
Nor did they break during the first heat,
maintaining, with steady pertinacity,
their speed and lead. Tom and Bill—es
peoially the latter—for who didn't sym
pathise with him ?—stretched out brave
ly to recover a sad gap made, as we be
lieve, causelessly. Dr., we rap your
knuckles slightly as possible, but we
don't blame the horses for letting -their
opponents pass the pole at 3:27 4-5.
Second heat. Both teams well in hand,
Bill and Tom indicating a "level best"
go. " Lew Petit" "raised," and Lee,
inexorable, hardened his heart, stiffened
the reins, and kept on the even tenor of
his way and would win at 3:35 1-5.
The third heat saw Rikard over the
pole at 3:30 1-5, Lee doing a rushing
business just too late. The fourth "go"
resulted like the third, and Petit and
Clay took the pole at 3:23 2-5, thus giv
ing their - enterprising and delighted
possessor the premium. Our sympathies
were on the other side—our stamps in
The Gentleman's Driving horses came
up sandwitched between the trot of the
double teams. Richard Conly entered
his black gelding, "Packer;" Augustus
From, sorrel gelding, "Dick Turpin;"
A. S. Valentine, dark bay horse, "Bil
ly;" K. Thomas, bay mare, "Lady;"
Geo. A Lose, brown mare, "Jenny;" D.
Valentine, bay horse, "Prince," and P.
Benner Wilson, the celebrated "Dot."—
We cannot extend our report of this ex
citing contest, and, therefore, announce
Lose's "Jenny" winner of three heats,
time: 8:35 2 5, 3:37 and3:372 5. Krom's
sorrel took the second premium.
With the announcing of these premi
ums, a general effort was male by all
interested, to leave the grounds, and the
attempt proved very successful, and qui
et reigned supreme over the ampitheatre
and grand hillside.
The anticipation and predictions of the
sanguine were well verified by the. at
tendance of a "large multitude." Flo

Mr. Thos. B. Nolan's superb paintings
elicited general and warm ,encomiums;
His three oil paintings, representing
fruit, a scene from Nature, and' a cross
entitled "Easter Sunday," were rareand
rich, Mr. Nolan's two magnificent cray
on sketches of Christ, and the captiva
ting freshness of a beautiful ideal fe
male face, typifying "Future," justly
entitled that gentleman to a -front seat
among our leading home spirits -of ge
