when a horse was found: able to per

form this feat and repetit it, two very
essential qualifications were developed
aud that a ; horse lacking these, was
a failure, just in proportion as he lack
ed them; if beautiful,, a useless orna
ment kept at great expense.
In breeding, the first object to be at
tained was to produce a horse of fiae
constitution, for no horse could - last
without' rr; and' endurance was the
tadAxiott of a good iiorse '-a ftorse'
that could travel over seventy five miies
io one day and return the next, was a
valuable animal, even if hecoulJ not be
driven a mile in four minutes. ' But if
speed be added to this quality, he be
comes doubly valuable. .No breed ut
horses po-sesses euch bououi" as the
Thorough Bred. lie aUo excels in

horse whose bone if stwed so as to
present a section, shows a mass of
.-ponge-like cells the bone of the thorough-bred,
if sawed, shows a fiue grin
ed, compact body, susceptible of. the
polish of ivory; and although occupying
much less .-pace, is usually heaviei
than the bone of the largest draft horse,
and much stronger, and hence is not so
liable to disease. This quality ts nec
essary in the Race Horse, for his mo
tion is quick and he throws his weight
ou his legs with great force. On the
other hand, the dray hore, whose mo
tiou is 'loiv aud C4utiou, does not tax
his legs so severely while pulling at
his best The same principal is true
of the cord and muscle ot the respec
tive horses. Added to these qualities
o the Thorough Bred, his clean, tony
head; long, spright ear, clear, brigtit
eye; i-aucy neck; symmetrical form,
and fine, soft hair, and lofty carnage,
and you have the highest perfection
found in horses.
You have a horse able to make a
race; and if able to make a race, pound
tor pound he is able to draw a heavier
load than any one witii less game; and
for all purposes, when weight is not the
principal object, is vastly superior to
any other breed. While he is spirit
ed, he is bold, fearless and intelligent,
and experience has found him to be bv
far the safest and most reliable..
If we look to experience, we find
one thing correct every stage prcpri
etor or agent he had ever talked with
on the subject, prefered them, and al
ways secured them when possible.
There were Hooded horses on some of
:he stage lines in Ky. that had not lost
a trip fot twelve and thirteen years,
while none except a blooded horse
could show such a record
Of all the horses that have distin
guished themselves as first das- roadster-,
there is not one that could not
show a strain of warm blood if his ped
igree could be traced. In looking over
the illustrious list whose pedigree can
be tracerl to warm blood, we find Flora

Patcher is another who. combines warm
blood; from both kire'eaiid dam. On
the sire's side he is traied1to Pahaw,
while we find a cross pi "fruster on the
da.ui' sir'e,. , He vyes th? most illustri
ous ironing stallion of his day, and
prrhaps has never berj ; equalled as a
sialNon,' unless by thev. famous horse
"George W'ilks.. who.ia-j- also strongly
impregnated with warm blood, and is
also a descendent of Messenger.
Truster, '.celebrated 'for making his
twenty mile trot in les than one hour,
was a son of Imported Truster; and
Top Gallant whose name is covered
with laurels from many a well contest
ed field, was son of Iniported Messen

reputation is too well known to require
any comment, is by Imported Glencoe

that a son of this reioarkable racer is
giving evidence of Votling qualities
that are surprising. ' - John Morgan is
another of this class; 'iiis sire. Pilot, jr..

rrives evidence, either from his pedi
gree or blood like
warm blood ; ctrcu
ates through his
veins. As saddle horses, the experi
ence of the war shows them to be so
fur supepior to cold blooded horses that
efforts are being mat e to have this in
terest encouraged by Congress, by ap
propriating liberal 'prizes for the best
race horse, the same as is done by
"But,' it is some imes urged, "we
must raise horses ; ior the farmer!''
.' - . tt. s
This simply means' .hat we must raise
indifferent horses for the plow. Now
this is s.rauge philosophy; ju.-t as if it
cost auy more to raise a good horse
than a poor one, arjd men as if a good
horse could not dra- a plow as well as
a poor one ; asjf a1 horse capable of
endarmg'the severest hardship of the
race would give out under the slow and
lazy dunes of the plow.
Mr. Shrider differed with Mr
Walker. He thought we needed two
classes of horses, and that for th
farm, a horse should weigh from 1500
to 1S00 pound.-; spoke favorably of the
Morgan, and thought the Bl.tck Hawk
family superior; thought that in selec
ting brood - rnares, size should be a
feature, while stallions should be small.
In selecting Bl od he prefered Black-
Hawk, bui thought well of Messengers
and Eclipse. In selecting horses he
picked for round body full breast broad
joint, short between the knee and
pasture joint; flat leg and not too close

The last report of the Commissioner
of Agriculture is particularly interes
ting at this moment, when, the cap
ture of Lee and his arm), the rapture
of Richmond, the capture of Mobile
and the forward march of Sherman
seem to have prepared the . waGfror
the early peace which will support the
Government and the Union ' forever.
Then we shall turn to such pursuit a a
the Commissioner alludes to with . en
tire attention. The point which is of as
much moment as almost any is concer
ning farm stock, now drained by a
long war. The decrease of horses,
cattle and swine has been very great.
Sheep have increased, numbering
4,300.578, and the wool clip for 1SG5
is estimated at 114.559,076 pounds.
As wool has not reached so great a
comparative height as other texi'le, .
its fall is like to be more gentle, and
the cost of beef will render mutton
more valuable and more common.
Therefore sheep-husbandry holds out
great inducements to all our farmers.
A very few years will secure a good
flock from a small beginning. The
probability is, thertfore. that it will be
largely entered upon at once.
The Commissioners th nlc that
breadstuff's will fall oa the close of the
war, when the army demand is remo
ved. But he is of opinion that there
will fully sustain, if it does not enhnoce
current prices. Our exports of butter
and cheese increase annually. Cut
the number of cows has fallen off
This must be slopped or the exp .rt
fails. Cows should be kept from
slaughter. Even with the realization
of the promise of great crops of grain,
the decrease of hogs will keep their
price up. i ne inaucemew tor men
increase is consequently great, and
should be regarded.
These are among the conclusions of
the Commissioner, and they are so
important to our permauent welfare, as
well is to instant personal prosperity,
that they demand the notice of ail
farmers and stock raisers. It may bu
added to the Commissioner's notes that
the South has to be repopulated in its
pasturts and barns from without; and
that the demands of peace from there
will swell the competition here. . The
facts agree, therefore, in urging upon
agriculturists everywhere the pri ue
importance and advantage of bestow
ing the greatest attention in their pow
er upon their flocks and herds. The
profits must be very vast for years to
come until the census of stock in all
departments is restored to what it iva
before the war, and enlarged. St.
