Here tLey see a trotted out an animal with a brilliant step and a bright eye. Why is be to be saqril.o d, when he looks as If he would bring some hundred* of dollars ? But his price is ouiy thirteen dollars, for he has tbe vice of kicking. Another steed is brought out who bas a lameif in one of the cords of the lower leg; be Is fcLudrrrd and fit only for tbe hammer. Two ? f these establishments are sustained in this ?itv, but tbe horses at one of these slaughter hi uses are not served for the table: they are animals?poiled by disease, and are mere ban* wise only so far a* hoofs, hide, teeth. hair and grease are concerned. The udiversal let tun>uy as u> horse meat concurs with that which many army officers and soldier- have given that it is very like beef, only that it is coarser grained and of darker color. It is a canons fact that white anu gray horses are more frequently diseased thau any others, their lungs r>e.r.g not rarely a mass of corruption, thus ver't'yiug tbe old adage, "as poor as a white Itor-e." The horses are killed instantly by a Mow on the head, or being pierced at the heart. I aw elopkxkjrr altnitfl sat>c<l!?se>>rex( es. ?
