AN AGRICULTURAL FAMILY.


       Mr. John WATSON, jun., who has taken Bridgend Farm (the property of
Mr. WARBRICK) is a member of a family distinguished in agricultural matters
generally and practical farming particularly. Mr. WATSON, of Arnaby (The Green),
and a nephew to Mr. William WATSON, of the Castle Farm, Millom.
