We Van Buren incl son men who re a listed in beating the whigs in 88 and 32, irrow very Well How it a re a alone. It was Noi to much a Wing to a our own Taci and exertions a to the overweening self Confidence of the whigs ill 28, and Itier inglorious 1032. In theirs Bathe Quot they were so sure of Victory that they left every Pasa open to Lhoir opponent and slackened in their Zeal while toe strained every nerve and took every advantage of their Tuii of Energy and management. In the Secor tolf they were panic struck by the Success of our first Effort and Wottle not fight because they imagined or heart Khey would be beaten. And beaten they were and always will be while they Are either Loo confident of Sucic sror too fearful of defeat. The whigs Are now co lending for the a ame principles which bront it Gen.

These were the principles of the Tiue Jincks nouns of 28 and,�8 the whigs now acknowledge and Embr ice them we Are willing to help them in thu in pres Iii to struggle to elect an old sol Dick and Patriot states in of tie West to the presidency Jand to us Down the foul and corrupting policy of Van Bure ism. And Liia we do with the More and alacrity because we have had a personal knowledge of Gen. In prison and i principles and Public services or up wards of Tweney three years air we Well know there is not u More incorruptible demo a rms nor a More pure High minded and disinterested Slatt Smili in amerita. Nor was there a general in our army during the last War More devoted to his country More prompt firm Rte Lutc Brave and skilful in his military operations More kind and humane to his soldiers or More re Gardful of wholesome and efficient discipline f and certainly there never a Vas a Corr Maii Der in our whole ranks who had half us Many Dilia bullies to encounter and overcome As those which continually opposed and annoyed Gen.

Jackson issued to our party through Parson Gwin of Nashville that Martin Van Buren Thold be the next president. But it does not appear to me possible that judge White can be elected by the electoral colleges and it is far better than the people themselves should choose in the first place with out sending the election to Congress where bribery and corruption would be the w weapons of Van Buren and his friends through their control Over the Treasury.

Scientific hints ice is the natural state of water it is Only by the addition of Calorick heat that it becomes fluid. The Leason Why water in freezing bursts the closed vessel in Whitti it is contained or rises in the form of a bulb in an open one is because ice is More porous than water and therefore occupies More room. A single Square Inch of water while freezing expands with a Force equal to thirteen tons the porous nature of ice accounts for its swimming on the surface of water.

My nubs Gss Tab Ken a the Oft agricultural society a up Vetial this Day Are evidences the interest we take in the welfare of the country and of a desire to improve the agricultural information of Oik elves and our neighbors. It a unnecessary for me to Trace the origin and his. Torr of agriculture the most important of All Hrancho of knowledge yet it May not in altogether improper to Shew the it fit a Lott it has been held by the Wisest and Best of All Ages and All countries. Agriculture is one of thaae a is which from the Earu a periods me been deservedly hel4 in the us it estimation.

Subsequent a amp per hence Bat ully proved that the cultivation of this necessary Art essentially contributes to the Prosperity of Omo Jud an it that it ought to form a primary object in All moral and political regulations. In the earliest Ages and a. Mong those nations which have been celebrated for their refinement and civilization agriculture has been highly a sized and carried even to considerable perfection. Among the he brews or jews High birth or rank conferred no exclusive distinctions for it was then considered As the most honorable of human employments. By this valuable Art the Chi Deans discovered be Means of procuring excessive crops of Grain which ensued them to remain by Alionar and not Migrate As their predecessors bad for Merly done in order to obtain subsist Tanca for themselves and their flocks. So sensible were Many nations of its great importance that according to the history of the ancient frisians their Kings once in every month divested themselves of regal pomp and magnificence and ate with Husbandmen. In China a Day is still annually appointed when the emperor goes in solemn procession to a Field where he shews his sense of the inestimable benefits of agriculture by undertaking for a Short time the laborious occupation of directing the plough in person. Among the romans the Rural Art was deemed so honorable a Pursuit that the most distinguished senators at their Leisure intervals applied themselves to the cult la Tina of the soil. Numa Pompilius one of their first Kings was distinguished As much for Bis skill in agriculture As for Bis exemplary virtue and that such was the amiable simplicity of those time that their greatest warriors and legislators were often called from the Active labors of the Field to the higher but not More distinguished of lice of the state. Cato the censor who had governed and subdued Many warlike nations did not consider it beneath him to write a treatise on agriculture and several valuable works on this Sobject oppt ared at various pafi�4 of the rofl Sprira. He Yulii Jim no of Immy viewed by Many i the preset Day. Although it is the Prinn Tive evocation of Man the science of agriculture is yet evidently in its infancy.

Strange that the vast adv Plages Beld out by improvements in agriculture do not faster move upon the attention of our enlightened statesmen and induce them to make provision for having every facility for their de elopement extended to this to Long neglected and most in pontaut of Industry. It is a generally received opinion that those who Are brought up As Husbandmen to till the ground 9ught not to be As Well educated As those individuals who Are itt a i did for pro fess ional Abec Danical occupations.
