Fair and Cattle Show....From the Examiner, October 1, 1855.

Wednesday, the day appointed for this annual exhibition of Live Stock, being remarkably fair, the assemblage of country people appeared to be greater than on former occasions. There was a considerable number of horses on the ground, but, with two or three exceptions, none of a very superior order; and the horned cattle exhibited no very marked improvement over that of previous years, although there were two or three cows and one or two young heifers fully equal to any thing of the kind that could be produced in any part of the world. The show of sheep was said to be superior to that of former years. - Notwithstanding the large concourse of people assembled on this occasion, the public peace was well maintained throughout the day. The prevention, by the City authorities, of drinking in the booths, so common on a fair day, contributed, no doubt, to the desirable result.
