That true and well-bred Brown Waggon or Dray Colt, called YOUNG SAMPSON, is now rising Three Years old, stand 17 hands one inch high. He is a horse of strong constitution, fine temper, thick, wide and powerful, with utmost freedom of action, and free from natural blemishes - and a sure foal getter. He obtained the first prize at Rochdale, as the best foal in 1864, and he took the first prize at Middleton as the best weaning colt for draught purposes, in 1864. He won the first prize at Rochdale in 1865, as the best One Year old Colt, for dray purposes. He took the first prize at Manchester and Liverpool show, hold at Oldham, in 1865. He won the first prize at Middleton, in extra stock, in 1865. He won the first prize at Wardal in 1865. He also won the first prize at Newchurch as the best draught stallion, in 1866. His dam is a celebrated brown mare, the property of Messrs. Fitton and Rawstrons, Stancliffe Hall, Hopwood, Middleton, near Manchester. Young Sampson's dam was got by Napoleon, of Manchester. Young Sampson's dam has won seven first prizes. Young Sampson was got by Young Nonpareil, the property of William Wallwork, of Clifton, near Manchester.

Young Sampson won the first prize at Newchurch Agricultural Show, April 29th, 1867, beating Young Champion, the winner of 63 first-class prizes.

YOUNG NONPAREIL is a beautiful bay, seven years old, stands 17 hands high, and of very superior action. He obtained the first prize of 10 at Durham, as the best Yearling; also the first prize of 10 at Newcastle, as Two-year old; and 10 at Belfield. In 1864 he took the first prize at Haslingden, Burnley, Tottington, Middleton, Halifax, Rochdale and Whitworth, Worsley, Dean, Altrincham, Leigh, Radcliffe and Keighley. His dam is a celebrated mare, by the well known horse Farmer's Glory, which is allowed by judges to be one of the first Cart Stallions that has travelled those counties in a number of seasons; and he was the sire of more prize horses than ever was known. He won the first prize at Brecon in 1843, and again in 1845, as the best horse of any age; in 1847 he won the Northumberland Agricultural prize at Newcastle. His dam obtained four first prizes.

YOUNG NONPAREIL's stock are proving equal to himself. The foals at foot and year-olds in 1865, gained the first prizes at Middleton, Oldham, Radcliffe, Rochdale, Terrington, Altrincham, Deane, and Waterfoot. These facts speak better than self-praise; and the same cannot be said of any other horse and his stock.

NONPAREIL is a beautiful bay Cart Stallion, nearly 17 hands high, thoroughly sound, and of good temper, perfect in symmetry, with short legs, very cleanly, and of great substance. In 1853 he won the first prize of 20l.. at the Windsor Royal Agricultural Show, as the best two-year old Cart Stallion in England, beating twenty other horses. In 1854, he won the Northumberland Agricultural Society's premium of 20l. at Hexham (10l. by the Society and 10l. by Sir M. W. Ridley, Bart., Blagdon) and 20l. at the Royal Agricultural Society's Show at Lincoln. In 1855 he won the Royal Agricultural Society's premium of 30l. for the best Cart Stallion at Carlisle. In 1856 he won the prize of 15l. at Durham; and the prize of 10l. (given by W. B. Beaumont, Esq., M.P.,) at the Northumberland Agrocultural Society's Show at Newcastle-upon-Tyne. In 1857 he won the prize of 15l. at Durham, the prize of 20l. at Darlington; and the prize of 5l. at Bridlington. In 1858 he won the prize of 15l. at durham, the Northumberland Agricultural Society's proze of 20l. at Newcastle-upon-Tyne; the first prize of 30l. at the Chester Meeting of the Royal Agricultural Society of England; the Great Yorkshire Society's prize of 10l. ; the first prize of 15l. at Durham; the first prize of 20l. at Hexham. In 1861, the first prize of 21l. at Durham, and the first prize of 10l. at Castle Eden. - For further proof of his qualities, see comment in Mark Lane Express of July 29th, 1858.

NONPAREIL is by that celebrated horse Sampson, the property of F. T. Bryan, Esq., who won so many prizes at the Royal Agricultural and other Shows. In 1845, at two years old, he gained the prize at the Royal Agricultural Show at Shrewbury. In 1847, at four years old, he gained the prize at Leicester, and the prize of 40 at the Northampton Royal Agricultural Show. In 1848, he gained the prize at Leicester, and again in 1850, proving himself to be the best Cart Stallion in England.

SAMPSON was got by that celebrated roan horse which gained the two-year old prize at the Bristol Royal Agricultural Show, and prizes at Derby and Leicester; his dam was a splendid chestnut mare by England's Glory, &c. The sire of Sampson was got by Old Waxwork, which obtained the prize at the Cambridge Royal Agricultural Show. Sampson and Nonpareil have never been beaten, and their stocks are proving equally valuable.
