Cariisicv22th March, 1839
From the Pawtucket Gazette.
-It'is a spiteceof regret tosee in this coiin-.
try so little attention paid to ngriculturo.—
■With a .climate of almost eyery variety) a
'soil.of almost boundless extent, rind in point’
of richness and fruitfulness-surpassed by
yioh’e nnder heavep'.and able men eriough-to
cultivate it; yet we annually import from
the populous kingdoms of the old world,
-ship.'.load after, ship load; -of-grriin and hay.
This is a singular fact, but not less true
than singular. , j
In these degenerate days it is considered
■more fashionablc by our youhg’Tnen to mea
sure tape bytlie yard,' and molasses by the
gallon, to tinker in' a jeweller’s shop, or
stick type in a printing office, to sit'behind
the counter of a hank, dr learn to shave
notes- in a broker’s office, to presefibe phy
sic, or, practice law, than it is to* cultivate
the soil. Hence the sons of our fanUers, as
soon as they are capable of
ideas; become restless and wish to leave the
farm and paternal roof, and rush into some
city or town, there, as they fondly imagine,
to become rich and happy. They detect not
their error until it is too late to retrace their
steps; the.Hubicon is passed, and they must
go on. Hundreds of them might perhaps,re
turn were it not for “pride, err|ng pride;”
but when they are about to.embai'E on.their
last-interview..with.. their half .woeping sister
or sympathizing cousin, with the pomposity,
and "consequential air of a corporal , in minia
ture, they make it known in words with
the fate of youqg fortune hunters, that their
countenances will not he again seen by a
country lass, till their pockets are filled
with the world’s wealth, and their heads
with the world’s wisdom. ' 1
The consequence of all this is, thqt al
most every branch of,business in our cities
and large towns is crowded with practition
ers, and censes, in a great degree, to be eith
er honorable or profitable. Only a very few
ever rise to eminene'e, but how many inflre
drag out a wretched existence, and go down
to the grave “unwept, unhonored, and un
sung!” and not a few are followed to the
tomb by the cursors and malediction of those
whom they have injured.
Could those who are about to embark on
the rough sea of lijb be taught wisdom with
out experience,7npw different would they
shape their course. But they are like .the
child who wished to go to the show anil was
refused permission by its parents.
“You used to ko,” was the plea of the child.
"“Yes, my dear but we have seen the folly of it.”
..“Well, I want to see the folly of it- too.”
Arid a young man may be told by old ; peo
ple, tlie folly of certain, acts, but, like;the
child, “he wants to see the folly of them
The life of the farther is better calculated
than any other to secure happiness to him
who performs its duties. He is not subject
'to p'f fortuhewhich
slumber from file fevered .pillow of the tra-
speculator.; and gambler. The winter’s
storm disturbs.not,his peace,'forTheJibs no
ship to be wrecked by the waves; a- fell in

is it of importance to him wKether thebinks
