At a meeting of the AgricuLkara. Society on Thursday last, it was decided to post- pone the appointment of secretary until March next. The balance in connection with the show wiH be about B15 in favour of the Society. Tho fair was a. very smalt ai-fair indeed. An imna-te of the Workhouse hearing the surname of Prentice, proved quite an adapt at hammer smashing. But hia astuteness cost, him a month's imprison- ment.
