Agricultural i Wii Uiva a via a a a a d lying Idle is they were a thou if Why is it so Why do not a few facts for Farmers. And it any be As Well for a Low other classes to learn the sane facts and first the great of dict that of nil trades and occupations. Tho Farmer s is the Only one that never suffers by Quot hard Timos a a a commercial distress a a a grit full of stocks Quot or any other or the thousand and it it no terms that Tell of ruin to Many of the Donu uns or a tie Btij. It is a Gre it fact that the Farmers As a class Are now Tho Only class that is prosperous. While All other classes ire groaning in Dor the evils it depression in business and want of employment of tingo who labor to live and Are dependant upon daily toil for daily bread. At this Verr moment while Tho labourer of the City is suffering for food the Farmer is realising to it highest prices he a received for Many years for every description of form Psi Lee. Think of whole droves of bullets Selling for Over $100 each. What n for beef it is from 11 to 12 for Gray Pound of meat in Tho fore quarters and Tho present week even higher than that. Stoep that will dress less than 50 pounds have sold in drove at a Ami a per head. Thon we pay five or six cents a Pound for flour and we butter our bread it 28 to 34c. A Pound. Potatoes a that indispensable necessary of in american table Are still dearer than bread or meat for human . In Short it is Tho fact that every product of american soil is Selling it a Tiec More rerun rating to the labourer than any other laborious employment and yet the Earth lies untitled. Thousands and tens of thousands of Seres of Rich soil offered for Sale at a trifling Price and and Yea. These labourers taste their own bread and meat Why do not Farmers stick to their Trade and Why do not others fall Iulo that oct ipalion ? to think we can answer. The first grand reason is because there is a most abominably foolish opinion prevailing that any other employment is More respectable than of a Fanner. This false impression is quite As much owing to those engaged in the business is those who Are not. Children Are Knght from Early Ages by mistaken parents to look for some other Means of livelihood than the a dirty business a of their fathers. I Here is a continual longing to escape from the prison House of the farm. The natural consequence to that nil other occupation Are full and All in them in their turn ure taught to look with contempt upon the Farmer and Bis occupation. This great evil is a want of Pride of caste on the part of those who should hold the first rank in society die rank of land cultivators. It does nut follow because a Man is a Farmer that he should be a fool or even a laborious Drudge. None but a fool need be that. There it just As much room for Leisure study and improvement on the farm Asiu the store office or mechanics shop. Ii we could Only contrive to elevate the character and standing of nil who cultivate american soil we should have not Only a More numerous but a More Happy class of Farmers. The great difficulty now is they Are ashamed of their calling and do not try to improve their condition a id Hereford Ink Down into Drudge working like cart Hor is Lor their daily allowance of folder. This is the cause of Scarcity of Larm labor and that Scarcity produces the present High prices without Miodu citing a Corres binding profit of the cultivator. Why ecu so he a to pay a i extra Price to in a the most of them Are As ignorant of the first principle of their business As Holten tots. They dig and delve in the same path that their antiquated Grandfather trod in the previous Century without Ever thin Kin whether it is right or wrong. Beside our own native ignorance that still exists is blowing the surface of land Only two inches deep of that it is drowned at one season and Burnt to dust at another we Aro constantly importing ship Togaila of peo a be More ignorant still than Vith this native and imported Ign Ordaneo with Only about one half the hands that should be employed upon the farm we Are trying to grow food enough to feed the workers and idlers and make Largo annual profits to Tavesi in 44 Stock a other Luau farm Stock. With the present High prices Stock in Good farm should to the Best Stock in the world. That it is not the fault is in the Farmers themselves. Thero is certainly a a screw Loo so in some of the machinery of society that needs a Little lightening. If it be a fact that the Price of cattle now prevailing throughout the United states is in consequence of an insufficient number in the country is a fact that ought to make every Farmer in America b us with shame. Out upon the Man that cries hard times or want of Money when he might have fifty Bullocks for Sale it $100 a head yet has not Oue perhaps has to buy his own meat. We close with a repetition of this one fact that there is no employment in the world More honorable More respectable or More honestly and certainly remunerative than that of cultivation of the soil. The bit sine a Only nods . Y. Tribune. Culture of fruit we hate during the Winter commenced the preparation of a series of articles on the culture of fruit. Which to intended to Lay before our readers but Tho press of other engagements followed by impaired health has. Thus far prevented Tho accomplishment of and object. But. As the season Tor planting and grafting Are it hand to have concluded to give the list which we would to commend for general culture accompanied by such Oft baud remarks of Tho subject May suggest. The culture of Good fruit is far too much neglected amongst us whether we consider Tho profit to be derived of on its Pursuit or its beneficial influence on Tho health and morals of Tho Community. Man is essentially a frug Vorous animal and nil experience us Well As theory shows that the Uso of fruit in diet to n far greater extent than is customary in this country is attended with the most salutary effects. But the pecuniary consideration is the one which in this sordid age seems to present Tho strongest incentive to action. And Thero Gin by no Aouni that the judicious culture of fruit it this Liras aft mls a Mora adequate return for the labor and capital it requires than any other Branch of husbandry that is followed in new England. Twenty years ago two Scro assured by those who professed t it be extra Wise thut the fruit culture was being entirely overdone and Tho Samo cry has been kept up Inoru that time to the present. Yet to find that the demand Lias increased More rapidly than the Supply and is at this moment greater than at any former time with n fair Prospect for its almost indefinite Extension. Tho last year was one of uncommon productiveness a for the Pupplo generally throughout this state. Those who a Ero in haste to get rid of their fruit obtained for i different prices according to the kind and Quality ranging from $1,20 to $1,75 per barrel although some Choice new Lall and hourly Winter varieties brought from $2 to $3. At these prices in productive years the culture is very profitable. But those who held on a Short Lime were Well paid for so doing the prices advanced with considerable rapidity and to suppose a fair Market Prico for any Good Apple at this time is about $3 por barrel. The following list prepared with some care will Giro a first rate collection of apples Lor new England culture. We propose in another article to Mako some remarks on particular varieties in the list and to add also other varieties adapted to special purposes and special culture with remarks thereon. Sarrus. Trinter. Baldwin. A Ero left without sowing. By the Middle of april the effect was very perceptible and the sowed und unbowed portions were of daily to be distinguished even at a Tho Superior growth and thickness of Tho manured crop was maintained up to the time of haying. I had no Means of comparing the Quantity of grass Cut at Tho time with what had been obtained in former Yean As this was my first summer on the place but the men who mowed Lor to and who had worked a number of years for the former proprietor said tent it was Tho Host crop that they had Ever seen on the ground. Nor was i Able to discover whether Tho guano to efficacious in promoting the growth of the aftermath inasmuch As the severe drouth set in just after having and entirely prevented the growth of any grass until full. At that Lima the growth As far As it went was thick and luxuriant but i should judge not to any unusual degree. I sowed in a similar manner about acres of pasture land putting on however in the neighbourhood of 230 lbs. Per the vegetation Here was of the richest Green and was undoubtedly improved by the application. It held out uncommonly Well during the dry weather. The ground was rather of a Low wet nature subsoil Clay. When guano can be obtained at about �50 or s55 per ton and Tho Price of Hay is from $15 to $20, it May in default of other manure answer a Good it is convenient and Nauful manure for improving lawns and grass on grounds where for various reasons it is not desirable to introduce the plough. It answered Ray wishes in this respect last season. I used guano lust summer on Corn Oats and potatoes but there was no extraordinary result visible principally i suspect Fiton the unwonted dryness of Tho season which hardly allowed crops to grow Arall. I must say that the crops did Promise to Excel during Tho first part of the summer and no doubt they would have fulfilled expectations had they been permitted to do so. I was myself sufficiently a i fied with the application of regard grass to determine to try it again on two other Fields this coming season. H. L. Young country gentleman. City ordinances.

Wishing last Spring to improve my grass ground at once without breaking up the Sod and reseeding i sowed Home peruvian guano with u very beneficial result.
