The committee regret to report that this valuable and desirable class of horses are not more fully represented. There was only 12 span or pair of carriage horses exhibited to us; surely a very small. . number of the fine and beautiful teams known in the State, as well as in our immediate city of Detroit.

With due deference we would suggest interogatively as to whether the meeting of the "society for the improvement of the breed of horsos” on the same day with our own, when held in the city, does not materially affect the interests of this society ? and particularly take from us a large share of animals, that would on exhibition here add much to the full completing of our list in all grades of Horses? and further, whether any compromise can be made so that the State Fair can have two entire working days, undivided with the amusements of our sister society, established only for the improvement of one class of horses, consequently only one interest?
