ASA T. NEWHALL. September 30, 1840.

ON SWINE.

The committee on swine, having attended to the duty assigned to them, to the best of their ability, REPORT:

That they award the first premium for the best boar, to Thomas E. Payson, of Rowley. The second premium for boar, to J. L. Noyes, of Georgetown.

They award the first premium for breeding sow, to Thomas E. Payson, of Rowley. Second premium to William Williams, of Rowley.

For the best litter of weaned pigs, they award the first premium to Thomas E. Payson, of Rowley.

Second premium, to William Williams, of Rowley.

They also recommend to Nathan Tapley, of Danvers, Perley Tapley, of Danvers, Colonel Newell, of West Newbury, a gratuity of three dollars each for litters of pigs; and to John Hall, for four shoats, a gratuity of two dollars. They also recommend a gratuity to Horatio C. Merriam, for a boar and sow, of five dollars.

The committee were very much gratified with the exhibition of swine, it being much superior to that

of any former year. The animals exhibited were
very numerous, and if the number of premiums
offered by the society had been greater, they
would have been happy to have awarded them to
other competitors, for many of the other pigs pos-
sessed great merit. They have not time to speak
of them all particularly, and therefore do not speci-
fy any. They think however, that the litter of pigs.
offered by T. E. Payson deserve particular notice,
being in the opinion of the committee decidedly su-
perior to any of the other animals offered, and supe-
rior to any thing as a litter of pigs, all from the same:
sow, that they have ever seen.
All which is respectfully submitted.

For the committee,

WILLIAM S. MARLAND

ON DOMESTIC MANUFACTURES:

[ocr errors]

The committee on domestic manufactures, having attended to their duty, beg leave to REPORT:

They have the pleasure of stating that the number of entries in this department exceeded those of previous years, and that as large an amount of skill and taste was manifested in their execution. The display of hearth rugs was numerous, and many of them were of exceeding beauty. The specimens of wrought lace and muslin were good, many of them surpassing any of previous years in their execution. The committee met with the same difficulty the present, as at the last exhibition, in deciding on the hearth rugs; where all were so handsome, they knew.

not which should have the preference, they have, therefore, given many gratuities on them.

They witness with pleasure the continued interest the ladies take in adding to the exhibition specimens of their skill and taste, and have unanimously awarded the following premiums and gratuities:For the best piece of carpeting, to Miss
