The encouragement already received by the Executive Committee of the North Carolina StJite Agricultural Society, warrants the expectation that the lllst Annual Fair, in all its departments, will equal, ll'it does not excel, any that has ever been lield in the South. It iH the intention of tbe managers to make It a thorough exponent of all tlie Agricultuml and Industrial interests of the State, and to use their best exertions and all the resourcesof the Society to make the exhibition entertaining, Instructive and profitable. Designed to foster and promote all the material interests of our people, the North Carolina State Fair is justly regarded as a Stale enterprise, embracing alike the interests of the producer, the manufacturer, theagricuUurist, thestock grower, and the inventor. Devoted to an object of such grand purpose and importance, the Committee gratefully appreciates the generous support hitherto enjoyed from the press ol the State, from the Executive and other State oflioers, from the Board of Agri-ouUure and its Commissioner, and from pu'uUc spirited and patriotic men and women tliroughout tlie State. The Premium List lias been carefully, thoroughly and liberally arranged, for securing to each interest represented, duo prominence. The gradual but steadily growing prosperity, wliich so rejoices our people In all departments of their industry, and especially in our agricultural, manufac-turing and mining pursuits, can but quicken their energies and enlarge their aims, and it is but natural that our SU\te Fair, fostered by such auspicious sur-roundings, should advance and improve correspondingly. The Committee therefore confldently expects that the next Annual Fair will excel any that has ever been wittcssed in the Stute. TO MSITORS AND EXHIBITORS. The Twenty-first Annual Fair of the North Carolina Agricultural Society will be held on the 10th, Uth, 12th, I3th, 14th and loth of October, 1881.

The plan was drawn by a Civil Engineer of New York City, under the direction of George Wilkes, Esq., Editor of the New York Spirit of the Times, The following is an 0:Ccnrate explanation of the track. Length of track, 880 yards, or half a mile exactly. Width of track from fence-post to outside, 40 feet. From inside to inside of track, lengthwise, 360 yard?. From inside to Inside of track, cross-wise, 140 yards. Length of curves, 220 yards each. Length of straight sides, 220 yards each. Curves are graded one inch to the foot, from inside to outside. The fence-posts on the inside of the track are exactly three feet from the in-side of the track, so that a horse going three leet frojn the fence will feO exactly S80 yards, or half a mile.

Machinery and Mechanic Arts. Gen. R. F. Hoke, .....Director. Exhibitors in this Department are requested to make their entries, either in person or in writing, at tlie office of the Secretary in Raleigh by the 1st of October. Implements and machines exhibited, must be labeled with the name of the exhibitor, name of the machine, its use and the retail price; and they are required to be the Kame in construction and finish as those sold to the farmer ; not specimens gotten up simply for exhibition. Exhibitors will have their machinery on the Grounds by Friday, the 7th of October, that it may be placed in posi-tion and be ready for inspection by Monday the 10th. Experience has demonstrated the impracticability of test-ing or examining machinery and implements sufficiently on the Gi'ounds to decide on their merits. Judges have not sufficient time nor the necessary facilities to examine and test the great variety of machines and implements usu-ally on exhibition; and decisions given hastily may do great injustice to really meritorious articles, and create dis-satisfaction. These risks are apparent to all skilled mechan-ics and manufacturers, and after all, the awards made under such circumstances, are not regarded of much real value. Manufacturers, Inventors and Exhibitors generally in this Department have accomplished their purpose, if they can but have proper facilities to exhibit their wares to the far-mers and others who may be interested. To this end the Executive CommiUce will do all ilicit can he done to secure to every cxhibitcr a good and faithful exhibition of his goods. The exhibition of all Idnds of manufactured articles of utility, agricultural implements, machinery and labor-saving inventions, is earnestly invited. The members of the Committee are greatly gratified at the many evidences of thrift and progress among our people, and, apprecia-ting the groii'ing demand among them for improved labor-saving machinery, ivill take especial pains to accommodate exhibitors in tliis Department by every means at their command. NORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURAL SOCIKTY. 45 fi@" They believe that the display in this Depart-ment in variety, quality, and quantity, will greatly excel anything of the kind ever seen in our State. In Machinery Hall a long line of shafting will be run, that exhibitors may operate their machinery, and precau-tion will be taken to protect field articles from the Aveather. Exhibitors of Plows will be given an opportunity to show the merits of their implements on the field. t^° Trains for the delivery of machinery run into the Grounds and into Machinery Hall.
