Dutchess County Fair... Warren William - f THE FAIR. Tlie Annual Fair of the Dullness...
f THE FAIR. Tlie Annual Fair of the Dullness County Agri - cultural Society was" held in thia village, ' - - n Wednesday and Thursday f ihe present week. It was anticipated by lbs - friend and managers ol the. Society that tha Fair this year would excel any pre - ' vious one, and it doutalesa would have done so, bad it not been for the ram storm which commenced on Monday morning, aDd'marmVsted bat - little symptoms of cessation up to Monday evening. Fortunately, however, on Toeaduy morning there was a cloudless sky, which enabled lb farmers residing at no great distance from tee village, to bring in their Stock &C. for exhibition, tmi our maids and matrons went dilligently to work in order thai their department might be sustained as well aa circutu minces would permit.. Tbt Hall, hi many respects was deficient in olh - ers superior. Aa to ibe matter of bed quilts we do not remember to have e;n a more superior and elegant collection ;'maafactored articles were exhibited in their usual proficiency and taste ; fruits and flowera are naturally deficient this year, and of course the exhibition waa behind previous ones ; the attendance was pretty large and all were pleased with what they saw. The exhibition ol Stock, Fanning Implements, &e. was very well sustained, but was not any thing near what it would have been if the fanners in the more remote parts of the county had not been kept away by appearances of stormy weather. However one fact waa demonstrated at least that nn county in the state can produce a finer collection of Stock than Dutchess. We speeyfy below a Isrge number of articles, &c. which were on exhibition, and which attracted our attention. We are also enabled, at considerable trouble, to give ibe official list ol premiums, which will be found in its proper place. ON THE GROUND. STOCK, &.C. Aaron Vail, one improved Liecestcr bock, S ewes and 5 lambs. Amos B. Knspp, middle wooled buck. Calvert Canfield, 2 yeara old stud colt. Warren Williams, 4 years old slud colt.
