Aggregate Increase in pieces 611

Decrease in yards 53,419

, It will appear extraordinary, without some 'explanation,thitaliltough there has been aninCrense in the number ol pieces, the E^p.reptc decrease in yards should exceed 53,0(H).

decrease of. 1,637,013

A lavge assemblage of agriculturists were highly gratified not only with the excellence of the animais for which the prizes were adjudged, but of some of the others which were shewn; and it was the general opinion, that they were much better than those kept in Jio'dcmess a few years since. At the same time, two guineas were adjudged to Mr. John Pearson, of Hedon, for exhibiting the best boar. It may reasonably be hoped, that the exertions of this very useful suciety will excite such a beneficial emulation in the district in which it exists, as to cause every gruzier and farmer to vie with hU neighbour, both as to the excellence of his stock, and the cultivation of his land.
