Farming and the Professions.
Our city is fast filling np %AIM young men, mostly
from the country, and at many instances the sons
of fa-Mers, to eider upon the study of medicine.—
While we sincerely believe there are no better
medical schools in the Union than those in this
city, and that nowhere can a medical education be
more perfectly or more cheaply obtained than at
the Philadelph .8 colleges, yet we think those young

for the pursuit of arty of the " lezimed profes%ions."
All honest toil is honorable and dignified just in
proportiiM a• it answers the necessities of man, and
wide to human comfort and indepenilenctl. • The
tiller of the soil, therefore, ranks lirs:l--he is the
king of laborers, for tile soil provides fOr the first
and greatest necessities, food and raiment. The
farmer, standing in his furrow, is more substantially
a king than he who sits on a regular throne, and de:

Who does most to bless mankind ?—the shoemaker

man who covers our head and fashions our gar

comfort, calls himself i Ling and is himself a ty

Does it nerd %raping - to answer so simple a ques
