More beautiful woathor could not havo boon wishod for, all signs of rain noticoablo on tho proviouB evening having diBporsed. Tho day was of course observed as a closo holiday; and tho spring-like appearance of the woathor doubtless had tho effect of inducing largo numbors of pooplo to turn out and onjoy thorn selves. A more delightful spot than tho show j ground on which to hold a day's sport could hardly, wo think, havo been chosen. It is a pleasant dis tance from tho town, well cleared, and affords araplo i shade for those who desire to seek shelter from a warm sun. The pavilion is admirably adapted for 1 holding a toamooting in, being capable of accommo I dating at one sitting sovoral hundred p...
