ANNUAL NtEEITING OF THE STATE
HARRISBURG, Jan. 24, 1857.
The Pennsylvania State Agricultural So
ciety convened in the Representative Cham
ber of the Capitol this afternoon, at 3 oolock.
About seventy members of the Society were
On motion ) John Murdock, of Allegheny
county, occupied the chair, as temporary
Robert C. Walker, Esq., the Secretary of
the Society, read the minutes of the last =-
A. 0. Mester, Esq., Chairman of the Com
mittee on Field Crops, submitted the follow
ing report, which was unanimously approved:
The Committee on Field Crops respectfully
That as heretofore there are but few com
petitors for the premiums offered by the So
ciety. At the recommendation of two suc
cessive committees; the list was very consid
,trablY increased, and the premiums enlarged.
In casting about for a reason for the appa
rent apathy, we think we find it in the al
most universal want of exact system in keep
ing the accounts and memoranda of the daily
work upon the farm, and want of conveni
ence for making the experiments with the
exactness required (and properly so) by the
They flatter themselves that they see an
improvement in this respect opening up be
fore them. The Agricultural School now in
progress of erection in several of the adjoin
ing States, and the Farmers' High Schools of
our own, which it is the design of the Trus
tees shall be of the first class, will do much
towards fostering a habit in easy life, of ma
king exact observations upon growing crops,
and correctness in keeping memoranda.
The mass of very important information
contained in four or five hundred communi
cations to the Agricultural Department at
Washington, by some of the most intelligent
and observing- men of the nation, both prac
tical and scientific, with regard to the culture,
the growth and yield of crops, and which
are being distributed broadcast over the land,
with reports of the Patent Office, is doing
much to extend a spirit of enquiry and ex
periment, and the distribution of 600,000
packages, per annum, of new seeds, besides
cuttings and roots, gathered from every por
tion of the globe, and - distributed over our
land, must all add to the interest and value
of our agricultural productions, and foster a
taste for close observation as to the results.—
There are but two entries for premiums—

for five acres of wheat, and a quarter acre of
The committee submit as part of- their re
port the statement of Mr. Gerhard as to the
mode of cultivation and the yield per acre.

together with the reports of the Chairman
and Treasurer of the Trustees of the Farm

the receipts of the School Fund to be $16,-
579.17, and the expenditures for the year,
$11,535.76, leaving a balance of $5,043.41 in
It was announced that the Treasurer of the
Society was unable to be present, in conse

IN REFERENCE TO THE "FARMERS
BY DR. C. G. REINHOLD.
Agriculture is the first, the most necessa
ry and the original profession of man. It
springs immediately from the two large and
mighty fountains, namely, of nature and of
man. But these two magnificent fountains
are not only of an imexhaustible, but also of
such a quality as to increase 'themselves.—
They have therefore the capacity of a contin
ual larger population of this globe—through
the wisdom and dignity of human nature and
increase of wealth—to soar aloft to the father
who gave it. For who does not know, that a
larger abundance of life and creative power
is placed in the bosom of nature and in the
mind of man, and that it requires nothing
but a correct guidance of both to augment
them without limit_
In consequence of this view agriculture
appears to be a self invigorating process or a
profession of growth, not only in a physical,
but also in a moral respect, i. e. as augmen
tation of the powers of nature and of art.
I find the importance of agriculture to
consist not in: "much labor," but in much
growth on the part of nature and much art
on the part of man.
We see, that the growth can be increased
from the effects of the atmosphere (which. is
free of expense) to a much larger extent than
has hitherto been realized, and that a larger
part of labor, which at present has to be paid
with money, can be effected by the increase
of growth; and by this growth . ,and by a
greater labor saving art of management, the
farms can be supported so as to produce "the
most abundant continual increase of produce
without an addition of expense," consequent
ly an increasing land revenue.
Such a system appears to me of the most
important consequences in the United States,
and fol.. the last fifteen years I have been en
deavoring to arrange the farms to an organ
ism of a continual rising of a land revenue.
This organism I place therefore in the fol
lowing, namely: that through the manage
ment of the powers of nature the farm, and
by the management of the powers of art the
profession must rise to a mutual increase of
produce, and increase of revenue; consequent
ly partly by the science and partly by the
art of agriculture.
Shall agriculture come to revenue, it can
certainly in no other way be effected, unless
the art of management on rising land reve
nue steps between the profession and science
and that the talents and abilities of the far
mer for this purpose must be elevated and ex
The farmer must be able to raise a larger
quantity and of a better quality.of produce
at a smaller expense, in order to become
wealthy, by agriculture, and to arrange the
farm so, that this will be always possible,
signifies to raise it to the organism of a con
tinual rising of its rand revenue and of its
husbandry revenue. '
These two things do support and are depen
dent on each other, for to produce a higher
valuation of a nobler quality of animals and
plant production, we need a larger selection
and quantity of fodder, and a selection of
Only by thus operating together and alter
nately can a continual raising of soil revenue
be possible. For it is very natural that we
must get wealthier if we pursue this course,
as hitherto we pursued but one; and that to
continue the two practices of the art and sci
ence, no end to our success can be estimated.
For the present condition of farming the
manner of a yearly larger produce for the
present expense is not introduced at all. We
raise certainly here and there larger produc
tions, but with larger expense, while we, in
stead of the growth. increased only the labor.
The larger valuation of the land produc
tion by nobler stocks of animals, agricultural
manufactures, &c., the natural direction is
indeed zealously emulated; but it finds its
limits in the falling of the market prices, and
in the want of the land revenue it finds ces
sation and lameness.
The improvement of nobler stock of ani
mals is prevented out of the want of a prop
er selection of fodder and pasture equality, for
the fodder is to the animal a chemical forma
tion of strength, and a better selection is only
possible by a continual larger produce and
But hereby is also prevented the cultiva-
tion of nobler'plant matters, as the fodder is
also to the soil a chem ical formation of strength,
namely: not only by the animal manure, but
also by the various elements of masses, espe
cially consisting of grass mixtures, rotary of
hay and pasture cultivation, i. e., by its green
and sod manure masses.
On the most, farms we find a gradual de
crease of the produce, caused by the falloWs
and the working of open soil in general;
hence obtain the crops only by force through
means of a larger absorption of oxygen ma
nuring the soil, and consequently pillage the
soil by it.
On other farms there is only a cessation in
stead of a supposed increase of produce, be
cause the proportion of fodder cultivation is
too small, too strengthless and artless, and too
expensive. Others force an actual increase
of the produce, but only by larger root and
grain crops, consequently for larger expense;
so that thus the income is large, but it is still
not a soil revenue. All are diseased with one
and the same error, namely: "too much labor
and too little growth."
Thus a proper soil revenue is not at all ex
isting. The bad managements of the soil has
made it an universal debt maker, and in most
eases by the usual management of the soil
there is a great loss. Only a rich soil over
comes here and there (by the present regula
tions) its expensiveness of the management
and gives some soil revenue.
But besides the small rents, which a pro
prietor of a farm at present receives, we have
no soil revenue, but only husbandry revenue,
i. e. only from the valuation of the soil pro
duce, by means of a good stock of animals,
manufactures, impoverishing the soil and
men—small wages, incidental and in the
whole disadvantageous and unnatural high
grain, prices, etc.
Want of proper soil revenue is therefore
the cause why farm rents are so uncertain.—
For a tenant can pay only that as soil reve
nue what is left to him after the deduction of
the interest of the capital invested in stock,
implements and other necessary expenses for
carrying on the business. Four per cent. is
the highest that farms bring at present, as
there is no soil revenue at all from the very
uncertain husbandry revenue. And where
a proprietor of a farm has to pay interest on
the capital of his farm, he is often ruined
sooner or later. Papers full of public sales
prove this land enough. This condition of
soil revenue is a crying reality.
SMALL MEN AND EDITORS.—The Boston
"It is amusing to hear a small politician,
who- owes his whole importance to the influ
ence of the preasg, talk - contemptuonsly of
newspapers and editors. There is no strong
er proof of the "power of the press" than
the fact that it can raise such timber-heads
into high places. Luckily a single pull on
the same lever can bring them down again
to their proper level—did they not inevitably
fall of their own feebleness!'
Sensible fellow that Post man ; ho ' talks
like a Dutch uncle. Many who are now
great men would be nowhere, if it were not
for the labors of editors. These small affairs,
who are thought by the distant public to be
prodigies of learning, wisdom, and all that
sort of thing, owe all they have and are to
the press. If it had not been for the stretch
ing of editorial conscience, in the neighbor
hoods from whence they started, these men,
instead of occupying positions that should
only be filled by first-class men, would now
be following the plough, or plodding along
in some of the humbler walks of life. The
editorial fraternity will have much to answer
for in foisting upon an indulgent people
those sap-heads who now fill high positions,
which they never could have reached with
out the aid of the press.
Itgi—The investigation of our conduct as
Post Master before a Committee, will come
off as soon as Win. Brewster completes his
arrangements, and appoints the balance of
the Committee, and names the day. The re
port of the Committee will be published in
the Globe. The public will then be able to
judge for, themselves of our conduct and char
acter. Mr. Brewster may also include for
investigation, his charges that we are a Cath
olic, a pardoned convict, &c., &c.
MOSTIAL Feb. 2.—The inclemency of the weather has
almost entirely suspended the usual outdoor operations
to-day, and there is little or nothing iu the way of sales
to-day. In Flour there is no new feature; there is little or
no inquiry for export, and standard shipping brands are
nominally held at $6,373 bbl., without sales, except in
small lots for home consumption at that price, and better
brands and extra at higher figures, ticonrding to quality.—
Rye Flour and Corn Meal are unchanged.
Of Grain there is little or "none offering to-day, but fur
ther Bales of 1101200 bushels fine Pennaglvania.red Wheat
were made last evening at 150 cents", Rye continues in
request at 82 cents. Corn is dull, and in the absence of
sales we quote old yellow at 08 centts;sand new at 64g65
cents. Oats are also dull at 47 cents for prime Pennsylva
nia in store.
