to the imi:rorement and civilization Gf man. No
country on earth ir, in this reaped, mote blessed
than ours. None can boast of such a variety of for
est trees, adapted to the various uses of farming,
this mechanic' arts; architecture, and ship building.
t. re : ;
In no other country do we find such magnificent
shade tries,-such extensive and superb primeval
forests, and io_no part of the workl is the reproduo.
live power of the soil less exhaniteri than in our
own. Yet with all these incalculable advantages,
and with our .unbounded coal fields, the want of
firewood is already felt in some' districts which,
lamina prairiethaf the West, are naturally destitute
of timber, or in which locomotives and steamboats,
are consuming the article faster than it can be re
produced in the ordinary coarse of nature. There
is also reason 'to believe that the extreme desire of
pressing civilization forward, and of fertilizing the
wilderness in The shortsst time k induces many a
hardly pioneer of the West to gofer somewhat en
thusiastically on the "extermination" of our woods,
when consiklemtions not merely poencal, bot econ
omical and practical, would in more than .one in
stance call out to him, it Woodman, spare that
tree !"
Trees are not merely useful and ornamental, but
also by . their mere existence-Aby the breathing of
oxygen—eminently conducive 'to health. They
are the companions of man, as much so as some of
the domestic animals, and have, as suchi-acquired
seerseio.rigie to Liu protiKuion., Many ecalities
which I could name, especially near the s i eats;
harabeen completely shorn of tic iber ; and (taper'.
' , lce has shoir that a forest onctstitirely cut (lowa,
wilt not grow up again and reltroddee the came
kinds of timber. Much inconvenience is HOW 141 i
in consequ'ence, and the evil is Progressive, threat!
ening the comfort and interests of farmers, mechan
ics, and all classes engaged in industrial pursuits.
In most countries of Europe, the preservation of
forests, by only partially cutiing down the timber,
and electing tir that purpose only those trees the
removal of which facilitates the . growth of the
young trees, by which means the same species of
timber can be reproduced almost adinfinitunt, with
. out any perceptible deterioration in quality, is re.
deal to a science, taught in academies and colle
ges. And though tve may not, in this country. feel
the necessity of husbanding the almost countless
resources of the forest, yet more attention than has
_hitherto been - paid the subject is certainty due to it.
It is to such societies as yours I submit this sug

rience that the country may erfidenily look for
The prevention of these evils.

One greaveculiarity of 'he mining regions of
America, and especially those of coal, iron, .and
lead, consit in the remarkable tact that the miner : ,
al is found in large quantities beneath the 'fiches(
and most productive soil ; promising at the same
time a rich harvest to both the miner and the bus
bandman. We not only produCe the minerals nec.

regulate the standard of values, and tb control the
commerce of the world. It is maintained by some
writers on the subject, that mining, if not a branch
of agriculture, is at
_least a kindred pursuit. The
agriculturist draws from the earth the organic poorer
which sustains vegetable life—the miner delivers
her the treasure. long accumulated in her lap.—
Mining, hke the pursuit of agriculture, nerves the
arm, hardens the body, and renders it capable of
peal physical exertion. A knowledge of mineral- -
ogy,•geology, and chemistry, is indispensable to the
-oecesstul pursuit of both branches of industry and

It would seem, too, as it our diplomatic and con
sider systems were organized simply in regard to
the great interests of commerce and manufactures;
but could they not be made equally subservient to
the mother interests of agriculture and its co.ofili._
nate branches l While our consuls report on the
commerce and manufacturei-01-'foreign countries,
would it not be'well to require them to report also
on the,:lifferent agricultural productions of those
countries, and. the improvements wl ich from time
to time may be introduced in their culture i Might
they not be made to furnish detailed account. of
,the different modes of cultivation, of the manner of
preserving crops, the agricultural implements in
use, and the various f kinds of manures resorted to
as a means of preserving or restoring soils "t Could
they not be induced te• report on all the. qlvariely
of fruit, shade, and ornamental trees, and forward
specimens of seeds, plants, toots, and bulbs, for gra.
melons distribution, accompanied by prover direr_

domestic animals of ilitierunt countries, and the
mode of breeding them, and improving the breed,
would be particularly acceptable, should_ the aM.

l paper would comprehend all
that is desirable, a would certainly be no great
tax on the consul' time and patience. In many
instances all the terials for his report would be
!aridity furnished him by the official politeness of
the government to which he is accredited, and in
others, he would find all the required information
already collected in some printed form.
By such simple means a vast amount of juror
mati3n fro m all parts of the globe could be coffee
tett, which in your hands of other corresponding as
sociations, would be most powerful auxiliary in the
dissemination of -agricultural knowledge. And I
would, in connection with this subject, respectfully
suggest the properiety of establishing a grearNa.
tional Agricultural Society, which in immediate
communication with the Agricultural Society in
the different States and Territories of the Union
and with the Patent !Ace, or some ether appropri.
ate evematental Bateau, might easily possess it
self of all the necessary information, to present in
its annual report, an elaborate and comprehensive
view of the agricultural condition of our whole
country. ' That society wield also be the proper
medium for receiving specimens of seeds, plants,
bulbs, forwarded from. foreign countries by ow
consuls together with , the colleciluns which, under
existing regulations, onenavy is in the habit of ma.
kiug, and of distributing them among the different
States and Territories.
The• National Agricultural Zonis:) , would also be
tho proper channel of communication : and of effect.
ting agricultural exchanges, between the several
Weal societies of !he -United States, and theaarious
agricultural midi' teamed associations in foreign
gauntries. It would, in fact, be the great 'centre of
agricultural iinfotinatioa which would diffuse knowl

the Magnitude and importance Elf my theme. I
have apprOached it with diffidence, before tin an

pursuit of matt demands a broader anti higher reach

to show- not only:the dignity and vslne of your call

of our country, but to enforce the:great truth, that a
common interest links together, throng l hout ail the
diversities of soil, of climate, and of production : the

In, taking leave of such a theme, let-me say- that
you may well rejoice in 3 our pursuits. Y m may
well rejoice in its triumph—the peaceful triumphs'

with pride that Hinter-ions rare of cultivators, who
from Cinginnalus to 114ishingtott, graced and en
.nobled agriculture, and which in turn graced and
ennobled them. You may congratulate yourselves
upon the coptlitinn and attitude of your society. if

a lofty position, the yams of its State society will
be the more widely productive of benign results,
not only in promoting and - atlvaneingits own hus

quarters of the republic. Let me, then urge you to
renewed and unremitted efforts—to continued zeal
