The Directors of the Orange Cauntv Agricultural Society meet at Warwick to-morrow to audit the bills and settle up the financial sffilrs of the rec-nt rather disastrous Fair held by the Society In that place. At this meeting it is understood, will be determined the time and place for holding the next annual Fair.

What the present Directory will do, we of course have no meant ot knowing. But we do remember how a years ago when Fair having been held there for two years, a committee of representative business men from Middletown went before the Board of Directors and Invited them to to Middletown with their exhibition next time. The Invitation was favorably acted on, and we all still further remember how from a condition of virtual bankruptcy the treasury of the society was replenished by the three extraordinarily successful fairs that followed In tbU place, and aent awsy with a very handsome surplus. Ajid Mlddletonn wasn't near populous or so big and flourishing then as It Is to-day. Whether tbe Directors will take an unbiased, liberal and businesslike view of the matter, and profit by their past experience remains to be seen.

If they send the Fair here we can fully assure them as before of successful and satls factory results. A LIQUOR DEALER CONVICTED- Sentenced to Albaur for Pclllnjl at Cornwall.
