any where else on her surface and the whole Earth in away from the Waters on the far Side of and the water being left be a tide is produced on this As Well As on the site at which the Force of Gravity acts that so great an Absurdity should have been accepted so Long ago by our writers of text books is truly it so contrary to All known facts and Laws of if no other influences Are Felt by the Waters at the far Side of the Earth than there would be just the opposite effect produced on that alleged by this absurd this can be demonstrated by actual expert and As conclusively As any other fact coming within the reach of experimental it has been proved experimentally that All bodies on the surface of the Earth at Midnight Are heavier than any other hour of the Twenty four and when the new Moon occurs at Midnight this increase of weight or Gravity Felt by matter on this part of the surface of the Earth is still if this theory were Cor attraction would produce just the opposite effect that

present so there is Little difference in the Quality of racing Stock of the two countries at the present Day but our draft Stock has been permitted mainly to take care of itself until within the last Twenty five since that time there has been a constantly increasing demand for the Best blood of foreign and importations of the choicest specimens of the draft horse from Scotland and France have been those from the latter country having taken the Lead in Point of especially in the Western we do not pro pose to enter into a discussion As to the comparative merits of these All have crossed kindly
