PROMISING YEARLINGS DESTROYED BY FIRE. The yearling;-, which were burned at the Jamaica track last Monday, when fire deslrnvod the training stable of William Shields, were bought at the Ox nard sale about a week before by Henry Waterson, and they made a promising trio as yiarlings go. Probably the most valuable was an imported brown colt by Adam BeaV — Autumn, by St. Frusqiiin. Tni, was a good-looking, as well as a richly bred yearling, and the general impression among the horsemen who attended the sale at Murlands was that Mr. Waterson bad made a fortunate purchase when this colt was knocked down to him for S900. The next in value, as indicated by the price, was a thrifty-looking bay colt by King James — Golden Grain, by Hanover, which went to Mr. Waterson at §000. and the hist on the list was a neat and attractive chestnut filly by Superman — Olevia, by Ornous, which brought 50.
