But the appearance of the farm did not contribute so much to our enjoyment as the fine stock of various kinds, which we saw. The impression generally is that we have no fine stock in North Carolina - that they are all the "raw bone" breed - but this is a great mistake which may be easily corrected by traveling over the State. There are upon Dr. Holt's farm, more than one hundred had of thorough bred Devon cattle, as many or more of an improved stock of sheep, all of which look finely, as they have fine pastures to graze upon in the summer, and the best of hay to feed upon in the winter, though as regards sheltering, they have fared liked our native stock, - which goes clearly to prove that the Devon, are the kind of stock which will best suit our climate and generatl treatment of stock. We saw a Devon Bull in the herd, which, for symmetry of form and thorough blood, cannot be excelled in the Whole Union.
He is a descendant of the celebrated MILKIN, in the herd of Mr. BLOOMFIELD, in England. We think that we may promise the farmers quite a treat in the exhibition of some specimens of stock, from the farm of Dr. Holt, at the State Fair in October, and a greater treat still in conversing with the Doctor himself. He is what we call a really scientific, practical farmer, well informed upon every subject in connection with agricultural improvement. -- Farmer's Journal.
