Speed and Lungs. --The Troy Times, referring to the famous trotting horse Royal George, owned by Mr. Field, of Buffalo, says that Dr. J. N. Parker, veterinary surgeon, of that city, made a post mortem examination of the dead horse in the presence of a large concourse of gentlemen interested in the turf. One lung of the animal was found to be entirely gone, and the other was in a state of disease, being filled with tubercles. The horse, which would trot a mile in 2:24, and was worth about $15,000, had died from exhaustion. It is singular that he should have been able to make such fast "time" with only about two-thirds of a lung to do his breathing.
