To the ljlitor of the Unrlingion 1'iee 1'rcst: Sir: I nciicc in your valuable newspaper of late, a controversy about the Chittenden County Agricul tural Society. Xuvv, dear -.ir, 1 huvcthoufihi c..ntil. crnbly upon ibis subject, and my conclusions have come prelty near the same maik that J. has hit. Any one of reasonable brains can see that he is right. If a fine bull is presented for a premium, without a pedi gree, vv hat would follow 1 Why he would be rejet ted immediately, and simply because lie could nut tell who his father or his luoiher was, or where they were lioiu. Now, for instance, a farmer buys a horse, a good road-ter, trotler, pacer, runner, or whatever 50a jilease, comes to Chittenden Couuly, re-ides lh re yoine years, hears ot this society, and being possessed of several superior animals, join, the society m Impes of taking a premium, pcihaps with a view to the better disposal of bis animals, perhaps to get cu-toiu for hl stock. Hut also sui'po-e that hav ing driven his ani mals from a to 10 or 15 miles, und alter spending his 1 day in 1 url ngton or whatever other place I be exhibi tion may he in, his animals arc rejected p.s mil good 1 enough lor a premium ; and why ! why suiiplj be-j cause he cannot tell it his mother was a lien lord ora 1 Durham ; or whether Ins i illier was a Jijrbaui, .jr- shire or common breed. Or if the animal in rpiestion j be a horse, he is lejccled because he does not know whether i'llgrim, .Morgan, lil.uk IJ.iwk, ir Henry, ' or Young Klyiug Clulders was hi- lather.

' Notwithstanding all this,' Fiid Mr. Gilmorc, ' my advice is, that yon invite Mrs. Chaloner for to-morrow evening, and ask fifteen or twenty agreeable people to meet her.' ' Well, then,' replied Mrs. Gilmorc, ' we must light up the parlors, and have ico creams, and other such things, and hire Carrol to help Peter carry thoin round.
