Mr. Fleming of Church-lane, Mountmellick (Queen’s Co.,/Laois) has a hog pig, only 18 months old, which according to the best judges weighs fifty-stone. He has refused fourteen pounds (££) for it ; and unlike most overgrown animals it is perfect in shape and very active. Some idea may be formed of its size when few men can extend their arms , so as to touch the snout and root of the tail at the same time.
