Beneath the starry realm of night
Strayed a maiden
To cull a wreath of flowers so bright,
All odor laden.
A dewy branch of Lilac graced
Her band so fair ;
A night-blowing Ceres was placed
Amid her hair.
upon her pensive brow of white
A garland lay,
Of Lanrustinus, Hawthorn bright,
And sombre Bay.
Long, long h silent heart had sought
The myrtles bloom,
And where the sweet Forget-me-not
Gave its perfume.
Unseen by 1.12 r the Dragon's breast
An , l hidden snare,
And 01 and. •r's waving crest
Of colors fair.
The Arbutus she saw not;
But &trove to twine
A wre.tth NN ith beauty all inwrought,
And iove divine.
11.1(xis roses and tha Tulip blight,
Chorcorus a:id the: Daisy white
She sunght to gain
She placed the wreath upon her breast,
Its wise to calm;
But sti , l the flowrets gave no rest
Nor healing balm.
Her spirit had not chosen right—
She wove again,
Of Croct.s pure and Lily white,
And Primrose plain.
And wears that wreath upon her heart
Nor u ill its impress e'er depart •
From her white brow.
Wove not the maiden now in vain
Her thoughts arise
In deep submissiveness to gain
Yon azure skies.
DELIVERED BEFORE TILE
At their - Annual Exhibition held at Belle-
fonte on the 6th, 7th, Bth and 9th
of October, 1868.
The last few. ears have given birth
to a new era. Our attention has
been arrested and our minds sudden
ly called to contemplate the import
ance of Agriculture'. Cultivators of
the earth have been invited; aye,
pressed to take their place in the race
which is now being run in the world's
progress. They have been startled
by the sound that has been made 'for
them ; and they begin to think that
there is work to do beyond the pre
cincts of the farm. They begin to
feel, too, that the spirit of the enlight
ened mind, which alone can give a
right direction to the operations of
matters has been at work for them.
To those who have put their hands
and hearts to the work of promoting
this great interest, there is a pleasing
consolation and encouragement, too,
in the reflection, that they are upon
the flowing tide of public favor: that
those they benefit now" look with .
confidence and pleasure upon the ef
forts they make : and that whilst the
fluctuations of business, the casuali
ties of commerce, the interuptions of
trade, the disturbances of sociei;y it
self,are but incidents of the mo . - ement
only occuring to be as soon forgot
ten :—that whilst amidst the other
and conflicting elements of busy life,
the pleasing anticipations and profit
able speculations'of one class are the
dreaded forebodings and dire calam
ities of another, all classes unite in
the fervent prayer, the kindly sym
pathy, the' liveliest hope, that snc
cess may crown the efforts of the
farmer. His art now commands the
study of the philosopher, the science
of the scholar, the eloquence of the
statesman ; the whole world with an
unanimity which no other subject
can command, lifts up its sympathis
ing voice to cry "God speed tile
There is a reason for this to be
found in the fact, that the product
of this art contributes more largely
than all others to human happ'ness ;
and that the art itself is better adapt
ed to human skill.
How shall we best promote this
object ? is a question which addres
ses itself to all of us with a force
which must command our attention.
First, then, study to know the sub
ject which thus excites our common
interest.—ls it enough to understand
that if the earth be stirred, and the
seeds be sown, that their product
and all else is a natural result of
God's Providence ?—ls it enough
thai we should be told and believe
that the plough is the best implement
with which to till the earth, and that
seed sown and gathered by the hand
of man is all that is necessary to en
nable us to drag us through the nat
ural period of our existence, thus
made toilsome and miserable ?—ls it
enough for ourselves to know that
we live and move and have our be
ing ? Is that large portion of man
kind who are engaged in that great
work of the world, content thus to
grovel and crawl, only occasionally
to be startled into an attitude of
amazement at the products of the
minds of men around them ; and
again to relapse into the contempla
tion of their own inferior condition 9
We answer emphatically, No ! With
regard to your occupation, you
should rather look upon this lovely
earth as the beautiful landscape of
God's creation, endowed with the
flowers of life to breathe and feed,
yielding its elements and products to
the delicate and nursing operations
of your hands. Whilst you follow
the plough you shoulu perceive its
use—you should see in it how the
educated mind of man has infused
mechanical science into its structnre.
You should mark well the work it
has to do, and its adaption to the
work.—You should contemplate
those seeds you commit to the earth,
and believe that it is not the work of
chance that they grow ;—and that
they, too, are embued with the ger
minating powers of life and light ;
characterized in their existence by
the qualities of good and bad.—And
you should know that perfect analogy
which characterizes the life at its
conception, the growth in its prog
ress, theprodncts of its resnits, and
the final death of all animal and veg
etable creation.—But above all and
over all you contemplate yourselves;
that you are a part of the special
work of God's hands, placed here
.and employed to direct and govern
all these things. They are no artifi 7
eial objects on which you are to ex
pend your happy thoughts and lives;
they are the delightful things of na
ture on which you operate, and na
ture operates with you in all your la
bors, and sweetens them to your
contented spirit.—This is the grand
secret of your co, - 6tant attachment
to agricultural pursuits. You work
with nature, and only modulate and
benefit by er functions, as she takes
up and quiCkens and completes the
works of your hand. There is a
living, moving, acting, principle in
your labors which distinguishes them
from other pursuits. The earth
yields its strength and increase to
the seed you cast upon it ;—to the
ca.tle that walk upon it,—the winds
seems to blow,—the rains to fall and
the waters to run for you ;—the very
hosts and snows of Winer give su
lutary checks to the rankness of veg
etation, lighten the soil, and destroy
what is noxious for you—and every
principle of animal and vegetable or
ganization and existence co-oporates
to support and enrich you. There
is a charm in this which must last
while the spirit of man feels the
strivings of the spirit and power of
God mound him.
Farmers do not reason thus, but
they feel it, and it is this mysterious
and acting charms which has infused
its sweetness into the hearts of all
rural peo,,le, in all ages of the world.
That farmers are vo as intelligent
and well informed as a parrallel grade,
of society in town, we must allow--
that they are not as truly aware of,
and united to defend their interests
we mean to assert. Their scattered
and isolated mode of life weighs
against them on these points—but
that they have more sincere hearts,
and a sounder morality is as Indis
putable ; they have a pureness of
purpose, a simplicity of mind as well
as manners, that is more than an
equivolent for the polish and con
ventional customs of society : and
with it a cordiality which is only to
be found in the good, homely, hearty
hospitality of a country-house.
We have thus endeavored to im
press upon you that, whilst you have
much to learn, yours in a happy con
dition in life ; and that your pur
suit is so essential, and its improve
ment so important to yourselves and
the world at large, as to claim for it
a high place in thee stimation of man
kind. And it is for you to make
this claim ; for the world never re
spects the man who does not respect
You must take your place, then,
in that race of honorable competi
tion, into which all the trades and
occupations of life have entered ; and .
whose goal is the honor and glory ot
exalting their own profession, and
adding so much to the sum of huthan
happiness. Who posesses advan-.
tages superior to yours ? With
every quality of soil, and with a cli
mate which breaths into all the es
sential vegitables the breath of life,
and into man the atmosphere of
health, what do you want better to
call into action the native strength
of your own minds and the energies
of your own hands
But that mind which gives a right
direction to the hand, must be a cul
tivated mind ; for we should not
cease to remember, that intellect is
that "talent" which the goodness of
God bestowed upon the creatures of
his own image, not that it should be
barriecl in the earth, and restored up
on the return of its Lord and Master
in its original simplicity ; but that it
should be cultivated, enlarged and
appropriated to his great design. It
is demanded of us, all, thatiwe should
put o:r hand to the noble work of
education, and especially that we
should direct that education to a
course of study that will fit the mind
and adapt the energies of the body
to that expressive, interesting and
delightful subject in which you are
engaged, and for which the world
has yet done so little.
The literary institutions of the
present day, whilst they fulfil all the
duties of educating boys to the at
tainment of classic learning; and fit
them for the bar, the bench or the
forum of a statesman, yet it is to a
state of total unfitness for the pursuit
agriculture. The farmer must derive
his education where agricultural
studies and agricultural employments
enter daily, and habitually into the
minds and occupations of the student.
In a farmers school he learns the
chemical analysis of the earth he is
to cultivate, the mechanical structure
of the plough he is to . use; how
seeds germinate and grow—and live,
and may by the labor of his own
hands, earn in part, the education be
seeks. The boy tints taught will re
turn to his fathers home, ready to
engage in the work of the farm; all
his feelings and inclinations are in
common with those who surround
him ; the knowledge he has acquired
makes him an interesting companion
for his brothers and sisters, and to
his friends and acquaintances he has
become the centre of attraction, and
he feels contented and happy to purl
sue the business he has learned so
Regarding the personal comfort,
contented spirit and daily happiness
of the farmer, this view of the subject
commends itself to your considera
tion. The boy whose uneducated
mind has never been elevated to the
capacity of reason, whose ideas have
never been enlightened to contem
plate light and life which exists in
every atom of God's creation with
which he habitually works, goes to
his daily labor as a measured task,
having in it no other interest than
the lapse of time for which he must
toil. But he whose entightened in
telligence grasps the subject of his
work, who can see the beautiful
workings of Providence in embed
ding germinating life in the bosom of
a seed; who can understand the
powers and chemical combination of
the earth, which causes, that germ to
spring into existence) And life "to
bear fruit after its ilitn! . kind," who
can appreciate the:!healitiland me
chanism of that plant; ; O'r#identially
and, therefore, wisely constructed to
meet the exigencies of' --heat and cold,
wet and droughth Ii;l:r • - • ban look
upon the mysterious \inklings of the
mouths and lungs of tile, earth itself,
whilst they gather foodT and light,
but to disseminate them through the
()rums of plants; who can examine
with the eye of a mechanic the im
plement of his art and measure its
fitness for the object of its employ
ment. He it is who has elevated
himself to the standard of a man ;
who has softened down the toil of la
bor to a pleasant occupation—who
has afforded to the world the ex--
ample, that the pursuit of agriculture
is the pursuit of learning and happi
ness as well as wealth.
It is for you then at all times and
on all occasions, to demand that in
the practical workings of society,
your interests must be cared for;
that whilst schools, academies and
colleges receive the fostering care
and bountiful endowments of the
government, the farmers school de
mands the same support. We would
have you, too, constantly to summon
yourselves to the bar of your own
conscience to contemplate the duty
you owe to your own children, to
compare the life of ignorance as it
gropes along its difficult path, which
seems to have no other object than
that it may breathe, and live,Pand die,
with the brightened intellect of the
intelligent man, who acts because he
thinks, who moves in a sphere of
usefulness and good, and whose steps
mark the path he treads through life.
To the merchant and mechanic :
the active and energetic motive
powers of busy life, we address our
claims, and ask of you to look with
favor upon any project which shall
have for its object the education of
the farmer. The busy marts of man
are filled with the products of his
labors, his success and profits con
tribute largely to the trade and com
merce which is the production of
your enterprise. Whilst the abun
dant yield of the 'husbandman en
riches him, the result is felt in every
department of the mechanics shop.
As then, you move and make your
impress upoA the minds of men, let
it be tempered with the idea that all
business, whether in the merchants
store, the mechanics- shop, or the
mariners ship upon the ocean, is de
pendent for its working elements up
on the products of the farm.
. To the Professor and the students
—to you who already possess .the
lights of reason, and enjoy the fruits
of knowledge, we appeal with confi
dence that your influence may be
thrown into the scale of agricultural
progress ; that whilst you have in
your own hands that helm of power
which gives direction to the elements
of government, you will always have
in mind, that to promote the true
and efficient principles of political
economy, to expand and increase the
influence of that virtue, whereby
alone we may hope to maintain our
own free government and laws, is to
educate the farmer. We ask of the
statesman whilst he advocates the
interests of his constituents at tha,
bar of the Senate; of the lawyer
who advocates the cause of his client
at the bar of justice. And of thiit
sacred office which advocates the
cause of man at the bar of heaven,
that they may ever remember the
magnitude of our temporal as well as
Let us not forget to exhort those
whose influence is always and so
strongly marked upon the characters
of men from their cradle to the grave,
to think of these things. The mother
whose affections root so deeply in
the existence of her own offspring,
whose anticipations are oft stimula
ted to painful anxiety for the welfare
of her child, who watches its progress
in life with an eye to doubt and
danger, whose hopes may be eleva
ted to thankfulness to the giver of
all good, that he has smiled gra
ciously upon the career of her dear
child;, or whose fearful forebodings,
may be realized in the spectacle that
he is despised by the society of men
and frowned upon by the attributes
of Heaven. We beg leave to remind
you, that the influence of yourpower
should always be felt in the impress
of your continued influence.
In conclusion we have a word to
say with regard to these your annu
ally occurring exhibitions. Here all
is reality. You meet your friend
who is embarked on the same enter
prise of life and whose thoughts and
hearts are congenial with your own.
Yon see many of whom you before
had but heard ; and here, too, you
learn to realize the force ofuumbers,
of intelligqnce, of 'strength, of which
you are composed, and that power
which may be yielded by your will.
You carry hence to your homes, in
your minds eye the beautiful models,
of your art, the judgment of their use
the calculation of their value. And
you see these marvelous productions
of the soil, which serve to expand
your own views of the extent and
workings of your own skill. These
are the delightful points in your life,
to which the memory runs with
pleasure; and therefore we would
have you to remember, that these
exhibitions are yours ; that while you
are the authors and finishers no one
of you should ever fail to he their
friend and patron.
