Association, took plaoe to-day at the Show grounds. The weather being fine and • large number of horsea entered there was • good attendance of farmer and others. The draught! were first to enter the ring, and were voted a grand lot of horses, though one o* two were deoidedly below the general level. Taking them In catalogue order, Auohmore (Mr Denis Barry's) has filled out well since last year, without any loss of style. Renfrew Jock (Mr G. M»ngln'e), an Imported horse of splendid quality oame next, and attraoted muoh attention. Should this hone remain In the dletrlot he will be an acquisition worth having. Toung Wellington (also the property of Mr Mang(n) has plenty of slza, but not the quality of his companion. Prince Imperial (Mr W. Sioddirt) Is a ueefol little hocee, though not one of the ehowy sort. Tuierl Jock (Mr James Walter) has fair else »nd Dice quality, and is a good mover. Young Hopeful (Mr R. Gawn) li a very promising colt, and is bred well enongh for anybody. Conqueror (Mi T. Ltng'ey) is a muoh improved horse very little behind the best en the ground, while he has yonth on his side. He is eplendidly bred, being by Lord Salisbury, out of the famous Imported mure Scotch Annie, Tarn Gten (Mr Heron, Otepopo), Is of nloe quality, though still rather narrow m front, but Riving promise of making a good horse. Diplomacy (Mr Denote McKendry), has BCMcely Improved bo mnoh since last year •s he did In the previous year, but 1« a grand horee, and will get his share of patronage, Kelvin (Mr J. Gtlmour) keeps his position m the front rank, though the grand old hone begins t > show sfgas of advancing years. Paisley Jock (also owned by Mr Gilmour), is one of the stoutly built, useful sort. King of the Vanquishers (Mr L. White), is a grand horse, whosß rubst«nce aud quality of bone and hair will attract attention anvvhere. He is * horse hard to beat. Quility Jcok {Mr D. BrloV), U not one of the heaviest, bat U a very even horse, and looked well. Vanquisher (Mr J. Small), looked freih ■od well, and did not lose by comparison with ha new competitors fcr favor. Young Major (Mr A. Spring), is also on the light side, but is otherwise as nice » horse t8 o nld be wished. Prince Imperial l Mr John O'She»), la a yonng and Improving horse, but a bad color. Sir William Jervcii (Mr R. Charters), is a very handecme colt. Marquis of Fife (Mr J. B Saweli), la anochet stylish cone, »od a capital mover. Foreign Polioj (Mr T. Tilson), has grown Into a big good looking horse, and shows goo 3 substance. AtheJstane (Mrs Heron), Is one of the best bred horses of the lot, being almost a full brother to Conqueror, but his h!nd legs appear to have been knocked about, aud he bears little likeness to Mr Langley's h >rae.

Tbe thoroughbreds h*d no thine; among them to compare whh Johnny Fau'kcer Montrose has both quality and eobslanoo, but was lame from an accident, HunnlogtoD acd Wizard are nica horses of their aort, but hardly seem adapted lo get the etont stock that Is wanted now.

The carriage and roadster sires' seotlon Included some good representatives of the sort wanted now. Hercules bat grown Into a big upstanding colt, that will farther improve. Blaokwood Abdallah was very rough In coat, but his style and quality were as good as ever. Prince Federlck, by Berllu from a Lottery mare, was tbe most showy horse m the ring, having t,lz9, style ecd action alike good Bonier holds his own aa probably the moat useful of them all, hie oapital shane and grand aotlon being still oonsplonous Young Digty should not have been de?oted to stud purposes. A nloe pony Tom Tit (Mr A. Woods, LeestOD) brought up tfce rear.
