Suffice to say, that within three mouths after her arrival in London, the sanguinary act was perpetrated, which extingishyd every present consolation, and future hope.

" There is no flesh in man's obdurate heart," in his requirements of the animals placed by providence in his hands for his comfort and help.—We have some times looked on in astonishment, and fre quently could not withhold our reproaches, when we have seen a drayman fall into a violent passion, and unmercifully beat his horse for a most trivial offence, which his vvant of reason had suffered him to commit, or into which he had been driven by the more palpable folly of his master. Not unfrequent iy too, is this noble animal abused, by tasking him beyond liis strength and powers. If it is thought of a moment, scarcely a man of us, but must revolt at the remembrance of the cruelties and sufferings inflicted upon horses, to procure for man an unmanly and fleeting enjoyment The course of prepara tion is full of cruelty, and the race itself often proves the total ruin of tlie animal, or other wise, if lie is able to sustain a twelve mile under the whip and spur, it is only be cause he has extraordinary strength.
