BATH AND WEST OF ENGLAND AGRI- CULTURAL SOCIETY. The beautiful weather, combined with additional attractions, mada this annual gathering, held at Hereford last week, not only a professional suc- cess but a gresit social enjoyment. It was more than a merely agricultural meeting-the collec- tion of paintings and of works of art, the horticul- tural show and the music were charming addi- tions to it, wh:ch made it much more generally at- tractive than usual; and thus, though it was haxdly to be expected that the numbers attending here would equal these of the previous year in the yard at Clifton, yet the Hereford meeting has been one of the especial successes of this energetic society. The entries in the live stock department of the show-yard were as numerous as usual, owing espe- cially to the Large and excellent classes of Hereford cattleâas good an illustration ef the breed as was -ever brought together. And the implements ex- hibited, though not in competition for the awards of prizes offered by the society, were the largest and most striking collection of agricultural machinery that has yet been witnessed in the show-yard of this society Taking the several classes in suc- cession, we had first the Devons. Farther from home than usual, they were a smaller collect ion, only twenly-eight animals in all, Mr. Azariah Smith's ani Mr. Farthing's old bulls being res- pectively 1st and 2nd in that class. A remarkably good specinen of the breed, symmetrical and life- like, from 1he herd of the late J. W. Bulier, Esq., was 1st ii the 2nd class.; and a neat little 1 yearling: belonging to Mr. Farthing was 1st in the I. young clasE. The cows were also very good both in number ind quality. Mr. Farthing was again 1st and 2id, and Mr. Azariah Smith 3rd; and the sane names re-appear in the class of yearlings. I The Shoit-horn Classes, hardly equal to former years in nunber, made up in quality, particularly in the classof cows. The Lord sold a calf at the Bab?aham sale-a large and massive, but somewhat jatchy red and white bull, remarkably good over tie loins, which was 1st in the old class of bulls. Hewas exhibited by Mr. Sharpe, of Court- lands, Eas G-rinstead, who took several prizes into Susses. The 2nd prize bull, exhibited by Mr. J. Read, ofSoutham, a somewhat flat-sided roan, was literally saved from the butcher for use on a dairy farm and subsequent exhibition here. Mr. (Same's yomger bull Gondomar, 1st in his class, is a light r.an, long bodied, with heavy quarters, and plenty of good hair. The cow clafJS was an edraordiny collection of good animals, 13 in number, w.th Mr. Strstton's Diadem easily 1st, round as e barrel, with well sprung rib, splendid bosom, hetvily fleshed everywhere; the first and second yoing heifers exhibited by Mr. Logan and Mir. Lynn were also beautiful specimens of the breed. M'. Stratton and Mr. Sharpe were also I let and 2td respectively in the class of year- ling heifers. The Herifords formed a splendid sight, exceed- ing in nutiber, and in some respects in quality, I the the Royal Agricultural Society in 1863 at Worceaer. No fewer than 24 bulls of all ages I' and 35 cows and heifers competed for the society's prizes, and 55 entries, 44 of them pairs of heifers, competed for the local prizes. Mr. Baldwin's B&ttersea, Mr. Taylor's Tambarine, were greajly admired. The first in particular is a marvelkra: specimen of even quality and symmetry. The winner in his class at the Battersea Show, he has neverfailed of winning honours since, wher- ever he his been exhibited. At Leominster, Lud- low, and Hereford after Battersea in 1862-at Worcester, Exeter, Warwickshire, Evesham, and Hereford in 1863-at Bristol, Newcastle, War- wickshire and Hereford in 1864; and now again at Hereford in 1865 he has carried off all the prize, and never looked better than he does at present. Commodore is a younger but excellent specimen of the breed, with perhaps hardly tie size one looks for at his age. The fheep and Pig Classes must be shortly characterised as many of them unusually good. The lonr-wools, both Cotswold and Leicesters, and especialy the former, were fairly represented. The Saithdowne, however, were indifferently re- presen'ed; both Shropshire and West-country downs were good; and t-Iie horned classes were pretty well filkd. There were fifty entries of pigs, Ãl which the Berkshire breed was well re- preseited. The prize list is given below. ThtHorse Classes were not up to the mark either in nuuber or quality. The agricultural stallion class ontains several powerful specimens of Cly- desdae, Suffolk, and other breeds, and one of the classe competing for the local prizes (colts foaled 11118)3) contained a few good animals. Inthe other departments of the exhibition about entries of wool, half a dozen of hops, forty or fity of Perry and cider competed for prizes. The: was a tolerable competition for the sheep- shea-ing prizes, and a comparatively small compe- tior for the horse-shoeing prizes. The poultry forned a large and attractive section, filling a larfe tent with spectators. >> "he implement yards and trial grounds were crcwded with a most interesting collection. All tho leading manufacturers were present; the long rov of locomotive steam-engines engaged in tlreshing, grinding, sawing, pumping, &e. The department of machinery in motion displayed the nost extraordinary sight ever exhibited at an agri- cultural meeting. In the trial grounds, mowers, rsapevs, hay-teddare, and ploughs and cultivators, vorked both by horses and by steam, were shown st work. Messrs. Fowler's steam plough and cul- tivator, drawn by their so-called 8-horse power* steam-engine, and Messrs. Howard's steam-plough and cultivator, drawn by Clayton and Shuttle- worth's 10-horse power engine, made excellent work. One of the mpst interesting of the items ex- hibited in the other trial ground was the self-de- !liV'3ring reaper on Hussey's principle, shown by Messrs. Hornsby; the corn beiPg delivered in sheaves by a set of travelling chains which carry the cut corn at intervals off the flat platform on which it falls, leaving it in. well-made sheaves upon the ground well out of the way of the horses.
