We put in a few hours at the State Fair at Jackson o Wednesday, and accoiding to the estímate of the Treasurer of the Society about 18,000 other people did the samo thing. Wushteuaw County was well represented on the grounds, the excursión and regular trains being largely overcrowded. The Fair is voted a success in all the departmeuts. The grand cavalcade of Horses and Cattle in the afternoou gave the opportunity for seeing uearly all the animáis on theground The show of horses was unusually large, and inciined about 35 head of full-blooded imported Normans. These magniflcent animáis attracted great attentiou, and showed more action than would have been expected from horses weighiug from 1,700 to 2,000 pounds each. The show of cattle was good but not above the average. D. M. Uhl had his herd on the ground. There was a very large show of Swine and Sheep- the Hall Bros. of this city, beiug one of the largest exhibitors in the former liue. The Poultiy show was large, and that of Agricultural implementa large and superior. The Aun Arbor Agncultural üompany made a good display. In farm and orchard products the show was large and attracitve. The Vegetables couldn't have been larger or botter, or the Fruits more luscious or tempting. The merchants aud ladies of Jacksou had spared no pains to make Manufacturéis' Hall the center of attraction, and had been aided by Detroit dealers, Adrián, Kalamazoo, and Grand Hapids florista.
