Among the horses business was pretty brisk, and in the ring the thirteen two-year old Suffolk fillies and the ponies were most popular; but the parade, seeing the pleasure which it gives, might be extended with advantage to three, or at least two, rounds in all cases. Two Clydesdale mares of Mr. Stirling, and a young sire by Clyde (the sire of Sir Walter Scott), whom that gentleman sold to the Speaker of the House Of Commons, were picked up for New Zealand ; Mr. Crisp sold a Suffolk sire to Lord Lucan ; the first prize Young Suffolk sire, goes, we believe, to Pomerania ; a chestnut British Yeoman hunter (not commended) changed hands for £150; Grey Priam departed to West Canada ; and the second prize coaching-mare of Mr. Holmes (who sold the winner in the class two years since) to "Merrie Carlisle." 5.7.1862
