What Talent, Energy and
Skill Can Do in American.
A Feature
of the
Great Carnival.
To the general effect and
splendid success of the late
Carnival, ho small contribution
wax made by, the Napoleon of
IJTnggists, the famous Dr. II.
T. IlelmbolJ, of New York,
who, at great expense came to
Washington, bringing with him
the finest and . most valuable
horses and carriage ever driv
en on Pennsylvania Avenue.
A special description of this
establishment. cannot tail of be
ing interesting. The Doctor
brought with him five horses,
two Ilambletonians, and three
Kentucky .ones. They ' were
1 riven together, two at the
wheel, and the others tandem
Their graceful' 'action, perfect
docility, admirable training and
great speed, became the theme
of prniie. Many of the most
uisunguisneu gentlemen oi tne
nation's capital, by the invita
tion and kindness of Dr. Helm-
bold, enjoyed the rare treat of
riding over the finest avenue
in America, in the handsomest
team, and afrer the five best
horses, now driven together,
the world can produce.
These are the wheel horses
two large, powerful, and bright
bays, and while they are as
mettlesome and proud as the
historical horse, of Alexander,
they are gentle and obedient
to the slightest movement of
the rein.- They are very fast,
and singly, have frequently
trotted a mile in two minutes
and forty seconds. Jupiter is
nine years of age and the
Prince eight, and so perfect a
picture of equine beauty, each
looks as they stand in harness,
that one almost expects to see
starting beneath Ins proudly
stamping foot a new Hippo
crene, such as sprang beneath
the slender hoof of winged
Pegasus. Horsemen in New
York and elsewhere, have made
repeated efforts to purchase
this span, but :thc Doctor
would not part with them for
love nor money. They are
among the noblest of the re
nowned Ilambletonian stock.
He is a Kentucky horse, six
years old, and a bright bay a
tull blooded animal, and capa
ble of making a mile in two
minutes and thirty seconds. He
is as tractable and kind as a
horse "possibly can be. The
sagacity, which might be call
ed supra-equine intelligence, of
this beautiful animal, is most
remarkable, and well fits him
for the leadership of his spirit-
a companions. vc Hazard
nothing, in Baying that Dr.
Ilelmbold would willingly give
ten thousand dollars for a horse
equal to Magenta, It would
be hard, very hard, to find an-
other like him.
Tho next horse, appropri
ately bearing the grand old
Koman name ot Augustus, and
fully sustaining its meaning,
follows Magenta, and like him
a native of Kentucky, lie
a bright bay, seven years old,
and makes his mile with case
in two minutes and forty sec
onds. His valuo we do not
know, but if emergency re
quires he can tako the place of
Magenta m the leadership.
For Augustus, tho Doctor ex-

presses a peculiar aiiection, and
he would not part with him on
any terms, , ; . .

old, a Kentuckian, and trots
with ease a railo in two min

Uexters .could not- trot it
together without long and
careful training.
The harness worn by these
horses is - in perfect keeping
wiui ineir neauty ana value.
It is made of the finest
leather, gold mounted, elabor
ately ornamented, and' bears
the monogram II. T. II. The
reins are of French buckskin,
martingales are made of fine
scales of gold, and they flash
their purity of metal in the
sunlight with every movement
of the horses' necks. The whip
cost one hundred fifty dollars,
and is heavily mounted with
It was built by Brewster in
New York, and it is a most
magnificent specimen of taste,
strength, ease and convenience.
It may be used either as a
landeau or as a close carriage,
and with two, four or six foot
men. Its first cost was twenty
eight hundred dollars in gold,
and it is considered the finest
carriage ever built in America,
It is longer than other landeau?,
hence the hack look or ap
pearance is entirely avoided.
Dr. Ilelmbold has .secured
the services of Mr. D. .Kings
port, a horseman of great skill,
and a driver of long experience
in this country, and in Europe.
For several years he was in the
service of the Emperor Napo
leon as his driver. He is in
full charge of the establishment,
and makes the confracts for
transportation. lie receives
the comfortable salary of two
hundred dollars per month, to
say nothing of perquisites.
Each horse has his own groom, I
but their salaries and those of
the outsiders we do not kuow.
Dr. Ilelmbold treats his
horses as if they were intelli
gent human beings. Their
condition is carefully examined
every morning, and their phys
ical wants consulted. First,
they have some nice vegetables,
and if they do not eat these,
fruit is resorted to sometimes
they havo apples, oranges,
ban nan as, and grapes as a last
resort. I hey are very fond of
grapes, and it is no uncommon
thing for Magenta to eat in the
morning five pounds of white
grapes ; and such as Magenta,
Volant and Augustus get cost
one dollar per pound and this
is the simple idea advanced by
the esteemed and valuable
friend and family physician of
Ur. Ilelmbold, Dr. Filbert, of
Philadelphia. None of the
Doctor's horses' aro clipped,
but are thoroughly and con
stantly groomed, and their
coats shine like satin. The
Doctor gives as tho reason why
horses are clipped, that it is to
secure their neat appearance
without regard to the comfort
of the animal, and to save
All this is quite sufficient to
indicate that Dr. Ilelmbold
lives like a princely gentleman.
However, he has other carria
ges, among them art American
drag, the most stylish and ele
gant one in the eontitry. It is
heavily trimmed with gold and
fitted for two coachmen and two
footmen. The hubbins are of
gold and the tires of the finest
