Edward Everett r Q4Agriculture.
Hon. Edward Everett delivered an address
before the New York State Agricultural So
ciety, at Buffalo, on Friday, the 9th October.
It closes with the following eloquent and in
attractive paragraphs t
A greater than Burke in this country, our
own peerless Washington, with a burden of
public care on his mind such as has seldom
weighed upon any other person—conscious,
through a considerable part of his career,
that the success not only of the American
Revolution, but of the whole great experiment
of republican government, was dependent in
no email degree upon his course and conduct
—yet gave throughout his life, in time of
peace, more of his time and attention, as he
himself in one of his private letters informs
us, to the superintendence of his agricultural
operations, than to any other object. "It
will not be doubted," says he, in his last an
nual message to Congress, (7th of December,
1796,) "that with reference either to individ
ual or national welfare, agriculture is of pri
mary importance. In proportion as nations
advance in population and other circumstan
ces of maturity, this truth becomes more ap
parent, and renders . the cultivation of the
soil more and more an object of public pat
ronage. * * * * * *
* Among the means which have
been employed to this end, none have been
attended with greater success than the estab
lishment of boards, charged with collecting
and diffusing information, and enabled by
premiums and small pecuniary aids, to en
courage and assist a spirit of discovery and
improvement." On the 10th of December,
1799, Washington addressed a long letter to
the manager of his farm—the last elaborate
production of his pen—transmitting a plan,
drawn up on thirty written folio pages, con
taining directions for their cultivation for sev
eral years to come. In seven days from the
date of this letter his own venerated form
was " sown a natural body, to be raised a
Nearly all the successors of Washington in
the Presidency of the United States, both the
deceased and the living, passed or are passing,
their closing years in the dignified tranquil
ity of rural pursuits. One of the most dis
tinguished of them, Mr. Jefferson, invented
the hill side plow. Permit me also to dwell
for a moment on the more recent example of
the four great statesmen, of the North, the
West and the South, whose names are the or
nament of the last generation, Adams, Cal
houn, Clay and Webster, who forgot the co
lossal anxieties, the stern contensions, the
herculean labors, and the thankless sacrifices
of the public service, in the retirement of the
country and the calm and healthful pursuits
of agriculture. One of these four great men
it was not my fortune personally to behold in
the enjoyment of these calm and rational
pleasures ; but I well remember hearing him
say, with a radiant countenance, that there
was nothing in the triumphs or honors of
public life so grateful to his feelings as his
return to his home in Carolina, at the close of
the session of Congress, when every individ
ual on his plantation, not excepting the hum
blest, came out to bid him welcome and to
receive the cordial pressure of his hand. I
was often the witness of the heartfelt satis
faction which Mr. Adams enjoyed on his an
cestral acres, especially in contemplating the
trees planted by himself, thousands of which
are now scattered over the estate. While he
ministered in this way to the gratification and
service of other times, he felt that he was
discharging no small portion of the debt
which each generation owes to its successors.
At Ashland, in 1829, I rode over his exten
sive farm, with the illustrious orator and
statesman of the west ; and as the " swinish
multitude," attracted by the salt which he
liberally scattered from his pocket, came run
ning about us, in the beautiful woodland pas
ture, carpeted with that famous Kentucky
blue grass, he good humoredly compared
them to the office-seekers, who hurry to Wash
ington at the commencement of an Adminis
tration, attracted by the well-flavored relish
of a good salary. Mr. Webster, reposing on
his farm at Marshfield, from the toils of the
forum, and the conflicts of the Senate, resem
bled the mighty ocean, which he so much
loved, which after assaulting the cloudy bat
tlements of the sky, with all the seething ar
tillery of his furious billows, when the gen
tle southwest wind sings truce to the elemen
tal war, calls home his rolling mountains to
their peaceful level, and mirrors the gracious
Heavens in his glassy bosom.
One 'more suggestion, my friends, and I re
lieve your patience. As a work of art, I
know few things more pleasing to the eye or
more capable of affording scope and gratifi
cation to a taste for the beautiful, than a well
situated, well cultivated farm. The man of
refinement will hang with never-wearied gaze
on a landscape by Claude or Salvator ; the
price of a section of the most fertile land in
the west would not purchase a few square
feet of the canvass on which these great ar
tists have depicted a rural scene. But nature
has forms and proportions beyond the paint
er's skill ; her divine , pencil touches the land
scape with living lights and : shadows, never
mingled on his palktt. What is there on
math which can more entirely charm the
eye, or gratify the taste, than a noble farm?
It stands upon a Southern slope, gradually
rising with variegated ascent from the plain,
sheltered from the northwestern winds, by
woody heights, broken here and there with
moss-covered boulders, which impart variety
and strength to the outline. The native forest
has been cleared from the greater part of the
farm, but a suitable portion, carefully tended,
remains in wood for economical purposes, and
to give a picturesque effect to the landscape.
The eye ranges round three-fourths of the
horizon over a fertile expanse—bright with
the cheerful waters of a ripling stream, a
generous river,• or a gleaming lake—dotted
With hamlets, each with its modest spire;
and, if the farm lies near the coast, a distant
glimpse from the high grounds of the myste
rious, everlasting sea, completes the prospect.
It is situated on the high road, but near
enough to the village to be easily accessible
to the church, school-house, the post-office,
the railroad, a social neighbor, or a travel
ling friend. It consists in due proportion of
pasture and tillage, meadow and woodland,
field and garden. A suitable dwelling, with
everything for convenience and nothing for
ambition, with the fitting appendages of sta
ble, and barn, and corn bin, and other farm
buildings, not forgetting a spring house with
a living fountain of water—occupies upon a
gravelly knoll, a position well chosen to com
mand the whole estate.
A few acres on the front, and on the sides
of the dwelling, set apart to gratify the eye
with the choicer forms of rural beauty, are
adorned with a stately avenue, with noble
solitary trees, with graceful clumps, shady
walks, a velvet lawn, a brook murmuring
over a pebbly bed, here and there a grand
rock, whose cool shadow at sun set streams
across the field ; all displaying, in the real
loveliness of nature, the original of those
landscapes of which art in its perfection
strives to give the counterfeit presentment.—
Animals of select breed, such as Paul Potter,
and Morland, and Landseer, and Rosa Bon
heur never painted, round the pastures or fill
the hurdles and the stalls the plough walks
in rustic majesty across the plain, and opens
the genial bosom of the earth to the sun and
air ; nature's holy sacrament of seedtimo is
solemnized beneath the vaulted cathedral
sky ; silent dews, and gentle showers, and
kindly sunshine, shed their sweet influence on
the teeming soil; springing verdure clothes
the plain ; golden wavelets, driven by the
west wind, run over the joyous wheat-field;
the tall maize flaunts in her crispy leaves and
nodding tassels ; while we labor and while
we rest, while we wake and while we sleep,
God's chemistry, which we cannot see, goes
on beneath the clods ; myriads and myriads
of vital cells, ferment with elemental life;
germ and stalk, and leaf and flower, and silk
and tassel, and grain and fruit, grow up from
the common earth ; the mowing-machine and
the reaper—mute rivals of human industry
—perform their gladsome task ; the well
piled wagon brings home the ripened treas
ures of the year; the bow of promise fulfill
ed spans the foreground of the picture, and
the gracious covenant is redeemed, that while
the earth remaineth, summer and winter, and
heat and cold, and day and night, and seed
time and harvest shall not fail.
KEEPING POTATOES IN WlNTER.—Potatoes
spoil in winter, if buried, from three causes.
First and greatest, want of ventilation. Sec
ondly, and nearly allied, dampness. Third
ly, and more rare, freezing. Farmers find
most of their potatoes spoiled at the top of
the heap, where they suppose they became
frozen : but this is not the usual cause ; the
damp, foul, steamy air ascended there, and
could not escape, and this spoiled them. A
hole made in the top, with a crowbar, and
closed with a wisp of straw, would have al
lowed egress to the confined air, and saved
The best way to secure potatoes out-doors,
is to make large heaps, say 50 or 60 bushels :
see that they are dry and clean, by digging
before wet weather comes on ; cover them all
over with one foot of packed straw, and three
inches of earth. The straw will prevent
dampness, and the few inches of earth will
favor ventilation. A farmer who raises many
potatoes, and practices this mode, does not
lose a peck, on the average, in 50 bushels.

Horace Waters, of this city.—Churchman.
The following is taken from the " Christian Inquirer":
"The Enest among the many pianos at the Crystal Palace
are those placed there by Horace Waters, whose instru
ments are always popular.
The following we take from the "Christian Advocate"
(Memphis, Tenn.:) "The Horace Waters, Pianos are built
of the best and most thoroughly seasoned material. From
all we can learn of this establishment—said to be the lar
gest in the United States—we have no doubt that buyers
can do as well, perhaps better, at this than at any other
house in the Union.,
"Mr. Waters has been long established and is favorably
known. We speak from experience when we assure our
readers that his prices are below those usually charged
for articles in his line.;'—Jacksonian,
"Your Instruments are a sensible improvement upon
Amerimn Pionos, and an honor to the skilful manufacturer.
There is no doubt but they will be appreciated by the pub
lic and all admirers of true merit.—Oscar Comettant.
The treble is clear, pure, powerful, and very melodious,
the base is deep, rolling, and sonorous: the middlepart is
rich, and sympathetic, and possessing the power of
i. e. of uniting the sound of each tone, in a degree but
rarely achievecl."—Henry C. Watson.

resonant and exceedingly musical tone which Mr. Waters
has succeeded in attaining." F. Musical World and
"There is one which, for beauty of finish and richness
and brilliancy of tone, equals, if it does not excel, any
thing of the kind we have even seen. It is from the estab

and most thoroughly seasoned material, and upon im
proved principles, it is capable of resisting the action of
the climate, and of standing a long time in tune.—Savan

Waters' pianos and melodeons challenge comparison
with the finest made anywhere in the country."-4orne
C. L. Sholcs, editor of the Kenocha "Tribune and Tele
graph" says, " The piano was received in good order, and
is pronounced an excellent instrument by good judges,
the tone of it is particularly commended, as is indeed its
external workmanship and finish. compared with its cost."
Speaking of the Horace Waters' Pianos and Melodeons
at the Crystal Palace the "New York Disptach" says :
" A number of these pianos and pedal bass organ melode
ons, from their great power, and fullness and richness of
tone, attract the very general attention and commenda
tion of visitors. Waters' "New Scale" is recognized by
artists as not only a sensible but important improvement
The " New York Express" says: "The Horace Waters'
Pianos are pronounced by musical amateurs as a decidedly
superior article in all the requisites of this instrument,
and it is fast superseding those of other manufacturers."
The "New York Evening Post" says: "The Horace
Waters' Pianos are excellent as well as cheap; but he has
those of other makers, as well as second-hand ones, capi

"I take great pleasure in announcing them instruments
of a superior quality, both in tone and tonch."—August
We don't know that we ever saw better pianos—pianos
better made, of finer tone and of greater power—than we
met with yesterday at the fair in the Crystal Palace. The
finest among them are those placed there by Horace Wa

" The Horace Waters' Pianos now on exhibition at the
Fair, have attracted a surprising degree of attention ;
they are unrivalled by any other instrument, in perfect
quality of tone and power."—thurier.
"The Horace Waters' Pianos are among the most cele
brated and improved makes of the clay. For power, bril
liancy and richness of tone, elasticity of touch, and
beauty of finish, they will not suffer in comparison with
those of any other manufacturer."—Thomas Baker.
The "State Register" contains the following: "For
beauty of finish, sweetness and brilliancy of tone. they
undoubtedly surpass anything of the kind ever brought
before the public. They equal in tone the grand piano;

seasoned material, they aro capable of resisting the action
of any climate."
Says the "Evening Mirror": They (the Horace Waters'
Pianos) are very superior instruments and the maker
may confidently challenge comparison with any other
manufacturer in the country, as regards their outward
elegance, and quality of tone and power."

IMPROVED PATENT ASPHALTIC
ROOFING FELT—A CHEAP, DURABLE AND PElt-
EE.CTLY WATERPROOF ROOFING—PurcE, Maxi; CENTS
PER SQUARE FOOT.
Market Square, Huntingdon, Pa
WM. LEWIS, Huntingdon, Agent for Huntingdon county.
This improved PATENT FELT makes HCHEAP, DURABLEaIId
PERFECTLY WATERPROOF ROOFING, for CHURCHES, CHAPELS,
PUBLIC HALLS, RAILROAD STATIONS, HOUSES, COTTAGES, VER
ANDAHS, FARM BUILDINGS, CATTLE and SHEEP SHEDS, and
every other description of BUILDINGS, in lieu of Tin, Zinc,
Shingles, Tiles, Thatch, &c.
It costs only a fraction of a Tin or Shingle Roof and is
more durable, as it neither CORRODES, CRACKS nor LEAKS.
It is made of the strongest and most durable materials,
and saturated with the best of Asphalt°.
It is made up in Rolls, 25 yards long, 32 inches wide,
and can be easily applied by any unpracticed person, with
a few tacks.
It is invaluable for LINING the Wflus of WOODEN ROUSES,
GRANARIES, BARNS, &c., as rats or other vermin and insects
will not touch it.
IT IS IMPERVIOUS TO WET, and being a NON-CONDUCTOR,
counteracts the heat of &mutat and the Qold of MITER,
equalizing the temperature within every building where
it is used.
To the Agriculturist, it makes a CICELP and sr7ECTUAL
ROOFING, for Feint Bunamses and SHEDS; a COVEIUNG for
Coax and lIAY Mess, also a DEFENCE for Sheep during
snow, and in the Yard as a loose covering for Turnips and
other Fodder in Winter—the use of this FELT proves a great
annual saving to the Farmer.
It is suitable to every climate.
It is light and portable, being in Rolls, and not liable to
damage in transportation.
When used 'UNDER TLN or other ROOFING, it forms a
smooth body for the metal to lie tightly on, whereby the
Tin wears much longer, not corroding beneath ; at the same
time DEADENLNG SOUND. Also being a NON-CONDUCTOR, it
keeps the UPPER soonts coot in Summer, and being Wens-
PROOF, prevents tho Roof from .trestsu.
