EAST CORNWALL AND ROBOROUGH AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY

The annual exhibition of this society took place on Friday last. The Agricultural Labourer who has maintained the largest family, without receiving parochial relief, and can produce a good character, William HAWKEN, Quethiock; second ditto, James MARTIN, Pillaton. The Yearly Servant in agriculture who has resided the longest time with the same master, and can produce a good character, John LANGSTON, St. Neot; second ditto, Matthew DEACON, Stoke. We regret to add that an accident occurred at the exhibition which proved fatal to a man of the name of James DAWE, the groom of a very spirited horse belonging to Mr. PROCTOR, of Metherill, in Calstock. The poor fellow received a severe kick upon the bowels, which produced such extensive injury that he expired on Sunday, leaving a wife and two small children.
