The Turf—A Bold Challenge.
From the Turf, Field, aud Farm.)
There is nothing that tends so much to
promote success in the breeding aud train
ing of thoroughbred stock as the spirit ot
emulation , and. as a general thing, there
are no men so susceptible to its influences
as gentlemen identified with turf sports,
whether aa owners of stock or otherwise
It was this feeling that has led to all the
great turf event* which at the time of their
occurrence created anew epoch in our
turf history. It was to this spirit of
emulation that we owe the great match
between Eclipse aud Henry, in 1873,
wben Eclipse, the Northern champion,
defeated his Southern antagonist in a
hard-contested race of lour mile heats;
and tho Boston aud Fashion match, in
18Ix’, when Fashion detested tho hitherto
invincible "Old Wliitanoae.” the hero of
forty races, thirty of them at four mile
heals, and earned for herself the proud
title of Queen of the Turf; aud the great
races between Wagner and Grey Eagle iu
183!*, when the former defeated tho Ken
tucky favorite. Grey Htgle. in two hard
fought battles of four mile heats each, Grey
Eagle breaking down in the second con
test , aud the match between Peytona and
Fashiou. w hen the former w renched from
Fashion her laurels as Queen of the Turf;
and the proposed meeting of Kentucky
ami Asteroid, iu the Inauguration Stakes
at Jerome Park, to settle the merits of the
rival sons of Lexington, the latter break
ing down ou the eve of the race , and,
later still, the meeting of Longfellow and
Harry Bassett in the Mommouth Cup last
summer, when tho sou ot Leamington beat
tiis hitherto rival, aud Harry Bassett tut u
ed the tables on him two weeks after in
the Saratoga Cup. when Longfellow broke
down. It is such occasions as these,
amid the splendors of a summer's sun,
with all the principle patrons or the turf
assisted by woman's smile, that lend eu
• excitement to turf sports and make a vic
l lory doubly valuable.

IT is universally conceded that advertising is
a necessity to success in business; it is ulso
conceded, by the shrewdest business men, that
newspapers arc the best medium for reaching
all parties whose trade is desired.
THE MONROE ADVERTISER
reaches more of the people trading with Ma
con than any other journal published in the
country; it is, therefore, the 6e.it medium of
communication with the planting interests.
We will be happy at any lime to furnish refer

who will testify to the fact tbat they ha e re
ceived orders for goods from parties who read
their cards in The Advertiser. In fact, many
who have availed themselves of its columns'
candidly say that its value exceeds that "f all
other journals in which they are represented.

A LI. FOR A SINGLE PRICE OF ADMISSON.
In the Collodion and Organization of the Museum the utmost care lias been taken to mliiv
anil enu-nten the public by presenting in One Vast Assemblage an accumulation such ashaa
never been attempted or dreamed of by the combined tact, talent and liberality of all other man
agers in America or Europe. It may be enteresting for the public to understand that forncavlv
Two Years Mr. ROBINSON’S NUMEROUS AGENTS, who are found in almost Every Part of *
the World, have been actively employed in Procuring Curiosities for his GREAT TRAVELING
SHOW'. Some of these were put on exhibition for tbe First Time Last Year; but they hire
been very largely supplemented for the present season by New Accessions and Cousignmtui
brought by almost every Steamer from Foreign Ports which has arrived in New York"for it- *
past eight months. As au illustration of the Indomitable Energy of the well known Propria
of tliis establishment, it may be well to remark that the Exhaustless Resources ot Europe, A
Africa and America, with the subdivisions of China, Japan, Australia, the Polar Regions, fcj
Sea Islands, Arabia, Turkey, Siam, Circassia, Egypt, the Pacific, Arctic, Indian and te*
Oceans, together with the Red Sea and Holy Land, have all been levied upon, eontrit;-;
swell the aggregate of This Single Department, which after all, constitutes but a moiettoiu
that may be seen.
It is ustimated tliatin the AQUARIUM, MUSEUM, MENAGERIE and CARAVAN, test
Twenty Thousand Curiosities.
This Stupendous Combination ftis been brought together at an actual cost to the Proprietor-
MORE THAN A MILLION OF DOLLARS; which is ten times more than was ever inveski 1
in a single Show. The curiosities of the several departments represent the choicest excerpt
from the realms of Zoology, Ornithology, Geology, Ichthyology, Conchology, Entomology, lit
chanics. Numismatics, Science, Statuary, Oil Paintings, and many rare and ex-quisite productions
of tlie Automatic and Heliographic Arts, and so classified for this GREAT EXHIBITION, as to
challenge the admiration not only of Naturalists, but of Poets, Statesmen, Philosophers and
Parents, Sabbath and Public School Teachers should bear in mind that No Public Exhibition
ever instituted in America afforded a Tithe of the Practical Lessons of Intuition which are
round in tliis Unique Exposition of Object Teaching.
