Ten thousand horsemen is an enormous

thai it was ,ui awful moment. It seemed
impossible to resist such an avalanche.
The most prolouud silence reigned through-

word of command. The nerves of excite-
incut being raised to their utcrmosi tension,
eery order was executed with the mosl
marvelous percisiou and rapidly. The sol-
diets held their breath, aud with bristling
bayonets, s'ood shoulder lo shoulder lo re-

The moment the Mamelukes armed
within gun allot, the artillery of tliu angles
plowed their ranks, and platoo s of inns-
kelry, volley after volley, in it perfectly uu-
interrupted flow, swept into iheir faces a
pitiless tempest of destruction. Horses

1851 82 cars and 18 bucks. In 1852,
I soltl him 91 etves, nnd to deliver in
1853. 1 have sold him 90 ewes. I nlso
received a visit from Mr. Parker and
Mr Howard of Champaign, Ohio, to
whom I could not sell any ewe this year
or next, 10 ineir preHt regrst.
From tho various essays made by my
futhcr to improve the merino breed, and
those which I have continued to elTect on
ihe sarno principles, wo have arrived at
the conclusion, that iu order to improve
Ihe breed, we must not allow our ewes
to yean lambs till three yrnrsold, and to
use no bueks until they had arrived at
full maturily. It was necessary to feed
them upon sound land j dry in preference
to damp pasturage ; nnd to renew tho
blood of the floek every five or six years.
If you arc longer in renewing it, one can
iimiiiliiiii the same quality in his flock,
but ennnot ameliorate it. We scparnte
the ewes into as many lots as we have
bucks, taking paiieular million not lo
use a ram of nny dtfect lo ewes of the
same defect. By these means thorough
ly executed, wo urrtvod tit thu improve,
ment of the race.
We did not decide upon exhibilinu our
flocks for the prize until! ISM, when the
Agricultural Assembly at Paris appoint
ed a commissioner lo visit the best (l icks
in our country. Am soon as the Com-
' HHS-.illlTS iiitule llieir report, the Minis-
tor of Agriculture grimted o e the great

1 Assembly met at Grcgnon. 1 ucnt there
150 ewes and -I bucks for exhibition.
I The first prize was accorded me and my
futher, who was then So years old, and
received it from ihe hands of the Duke of
Nemnurs, conducted by my Iwo nous,
, To the general concourse, which took
place at Versailles m Ibul. 1 and my
colleague, Muncieur Cugnot, sent each
of us three rams, and the first premium
was granted us.
