The hxecuiive Board of this eocieiy ii??? been in constant session for several day* pa?t making the necessary preliminary arrange ments for the Fifth Annual Exhibition, which ia to be held on tha ground of the Southwest ern Agricultural Association of thia place. Hon Marshall P. Wilder, president of tha society, arrived here on Wednesday -. He war accompanied by Mr II S. Olcott, of the irn~ plement committee, who baa in charge the field tna 1 of machines and implements of agri culture. The Board have decided to e*n form to the arrangements of the other leading sociefes of the Union by fixing the exhibition of the United States Society a month earlier than that of last year. It will commence on I j. of September, a?d continue five days ending on Saturday with the usual grtnd banquet, at which some of our most distin guished orators will deliver add/esses (>c i some accounts this year's show will be sore nor to its predecessors. There will probably be a larger and more superior entry of stock and horse* than has rlerv , F?vicujlJ '*?en in this c uutry The herds of the great breeders of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Virgiuia, will be fully represented, and insomucn as liberal arrangements will be mcde with the varioo* railroad and steamboat lines centreing at Lou irvilie, there will be a considerable number "f animals of the improved breeds from our Eastern and Northern grower?. There seems extant a commendatde sectional pride which will causo the Kentucky gentlemen to uni'e in securing as imposing a di-playa~ that of Phil adclphia 'Ino officers ol the society hjve me\ *ith li'? heartiest c -operation on the part of the officer* and member < f the South western Association, and the citizens of LoUi3. ville generally The utmost readiness to lend personal as .stance and ii.fiuence is rh'.wn all difficulties seem to be little thought of as real impediments to success, and the confident hopo is entertained by them that the United ? Mates society may have no causo for reKrettin~ i their choicc of locality. Some little idea may be formed of what these South western gentlemen can accomplish lor objects in which they have a real interest when it is considered that ttiey have turch*?f d a level tract ol forty five acre; at * cost vl i seme forty thousand dollar?, have f=urr?ui ded this entire area with a tight board fcuce ' erected a spaciom srena for the exhibition of stock, around which aie tiers of.seats capable of accommodating 10,0C0 spectators, and put op several hundred csttle and horse stalls Is not that doing something lor a simple co?n /ytociety? This arrangement of displaying stock fcoPao the judges in an arena i?- ne?r to Eastern people, but Mr. Wilder seems to re gard it as a very desirable feature. Th*re are large gates at cither side of the aini.hi iucatre tor the entrance of the animals in chargo tf their keepers At the ricgitg of the large bell all ? f a certain breed or F*i.ar?te class aro led in; tho judges make their exam inations, arrive at a uecision, and without de lay the viotouous animals are adorned with ribbons, led around the arena to be s?en by the spectators, and then removed to give niace to another class. Thus the public are speedi ly made acquainted with the superior animals, and those wishing to make purchases hare safe guides to follow after On the grounds is a large brick house, neatly painted and surrounded by shade trees in whlcn are commodious apartments for the' use of .adies and children who may wish to retire awhile from the dust and confusion of the rair grounds Ample ctipplies of water are at hand lor the stock and a sufficient po order0108 " m 7 altccclaDC9 t0 preserve . " ?*pectttl that the grand banquet will be held ia a beautiful grove at one side of the grounds This is carpeted with the thick, green turf of blue grass, which grows so lux uriantly in Kentucky ; the trees are very large and tall beech, ash and hickory, without underbrush or any decaying vegetable refuse if canopug of flags are made and the trunks of the trees alongside the tables are draped with banners, the sight of some one or two thousand people teaming in this bcauiiful temple of nature will be surpassingly grand Ihe grand trial of implements, of which so general notice has been made by the press, will be held simuitanoously with the fair, upon a suitable field in the vicinity of the grounds. This will certainly be one of the uiost important features of the exhibition, and of great interest to both the spectators and the entire farmirg community. You remember what it is proposed to acccm f'li.^h The committee on implements at the hiladelphia exhibition decided th.?* no award for implements could be made with any jus tice to either farmers or manufacturers with out an actual woiking trial, and practical ex emplification of their qualities before compe tent judges They recommended the United States Society to inaugural a much needed reform, and make this field trial. Their view* were warmiy stconded by the enlightened President and the members generally, and the present oomm<ttee on implements were ap pointed with full powers to elaborate and exe cute the iutentions of the Philadelphia com mittee. The result of their action ia that their Secretary, Mr. Olcott. of New York, is here with Col W ilder, to make selection of grounds and settle the necessary preliminaries. A competent superintendent will be secured to arrange the details of the trial, set the ma chines in motion, and carry out the entire harmonious working of this ''arm of the ser vico " I really think that when we consider tho great 6tock of the country by which Louisville is surrounded, tho indomitablo energy and State pride of the citii?ns, the novel imple ment trial, the increasing prestige attached to the United States Society's shows, and last, by no means least, the cloar beaded energy dis played by its presiding officer, we may look for a repetition in Kentucky of that victory, which on the peaoeful fields of Boston, Spriog field, Ohio, and Philadelphia, has perched upon the banners of an Agricultural Associa tion, in which American citizens can leel a commendable pride.

" What shall I do?" and the old bachelor stamped about the sitting room in a perfect rage of doubt, looking first at the napping babe in the little willow cradle, and then at the busy French clock on the mantlo^helf. "Assure as my name i3 Joseph Phelps, that little, two-fisted, large lunged nephew of mine, is about waking, acd it wants ono whole hour of the time whieh its mother appointed for her return Whew! I actually sweat, thinking about it What can I do with it? how can I treat it to sugar what d'ye call 'ems, or hold it, or trot it, or do anything with it?" At this juncture a faint wail from the baby receptacle brought bachelor Joseph to hli tabs. With an energy and alacrity that would not illy become a husband and baby tender he commenced rocking the cradle; sen d'ng tne indignant baby into a perfect tre mor of kirks and squalls. Backwards and forwards, from one side of the pillow to tho other, the round, red face rolled; tho infant fiats were clenched with a force that purpled them; while from the white, plump throat, cm> cry that set the baohelor wild with fear. Again Joe looked at the clock "What in the deuce curt I do?" he ex claitnod, viewing woefully the little inflamed face before him lie sat dowu in a big chair before baby? spread a double cradle-quilt over his kneec, and with a look of terror upon his face, pro ceeded to take baby from its resting plaoe lie drew the young h jpefal into his lap, just as a very neat old lady wouldpickjup a pocket handkerchief with bis thumbs and Angara A fresh yell from the rosy mouth of baby waa the only expression of thanks as ha oomman ccd the*never out-of fashion baby-trot " It must be that something is pricking him. Shoo! shoo!" said Joe, coma."n?ing a search for the aggravating pin, that was driving tha child into such a rage. Bnt no pin waat? bo found, and he made sn attempt to turn baby over, but oh, the clumsiness of his fingara? tho little eel-like form fell out of his lap to tha floor, sending forth a cry that wa? "louder, clearer, deadlier than before " ?' Lord save me' 1 ve broken its neck!'* was the exclamation as ha picked baby up, and in the agony of despair tried to quiet him.
