A semi-monthly publication devoted to Agriculture
Gardening, and the General Improvement of th'J
Mind, published at Harritburg.Pa.by Dexjaxi
Paiiki;. . .
Nothing need be said as to the importance of tho
science tf agriculture, which being the great busi
ness of our country, the sure read to competency
and-tliemain source of wealth, lies at the foundation
Of our national prospcrity. 'I lie experience o'f every
year, and: csrecially of tho last few years, has
shown that agriculture has been entirely too much
neglected for the best good of. our country. Thu
great desire of the present age for the accumulation
ofucalth.and the pfetailitig spirit to seek for itT-n a
new and shorter course, than that pursued by our
ancestors, had led many fiom the slow but certain
means of agricultural labor, to the more alluring
employments of professional life, and commercial
enterprise, or the still more hazardous fields 'of
speculation and adventure, in which a few have
succeeded even, beyond their own expectations.
The result of this unnatural state ptthings has been
what might very well have been predicted; a great
.rarfily of all the products of the soil, with such an
enormous increase in the price, rfs to. cause their
importations from foreign countries, to the great
impoverUhingijpd .ditcicdit of our own, -(
This f uinl these e lis have now become ap
rarcnt. 1; u a.any of thote, who, having been Iutci)
by the examples and oiccessof others ortlie prospect
held out to tl elr view, from, the producing to the
consuming class, and being disappointed in their ex
pectations, orp now disposed and are making arrange
ments to ic. urn to the hone t, the healthful and the
independent employment of tilling the soil ,hc-o
they uresure of being amply recompensed for their
labor. ' x,
Pennsylvania is emphatically an agricultural
state, and has thus suffered loss from the late fluctua
tions and changes, which havo embarrassed' cur
country, thpn any of her sister states. Her soil is
not surpassed by any in the world, and her German
and other citizens are justly celebrated as being
among the first farmers in the Union. It has thcro
fore been considered, peculiarly proper, that in the
heart of this garden of our country, an cgricultural
paper should be established, to gather up the cxpeii
ienco of intelligent farmers from all quarters, and
send it abroad, not only ever our. commonwealth,
but to every part of the United States. For the
purpose of doing this, and supplying what has been
considered a desideratum among the periodicals of
our states, the put Usher has been induced and cm
couraged by numeious friends of agriculture.'and
general improvement, to establish the Pennsylvania
Farmer. Ha has received assurances which lead
him confidently to expect that its columns will be'
enriched with contributions from some of the mosrt;'
distinguished scientific and practical farmers and
gardeners in our own, as well assomc of our. sister",
htate.s, v, hicli with extracts and republications . of
standard and new works upon the science of agricul
ture, will render it both interesting pud useful' to
every farmer who desires to excel in his most lauda
ble en ploymeut. . -n '
Pemisylv ania has established and is now maturing
a system of general education by common schools,
which is intended to carry the blessings of knowledge
to every man's home, and place within the, reach of
every child in the commonwealth, the means of m
6truction and improvcineni. This object U all im
portant, ond our means being purple, it is confidently
hoped that the plan will continue to bo. improyecj ,
& carried out, till tlic'ininds of our citizens thall ha
as highly cultivated. ns their fields, and the harvest,
of intellect be as rich and abundant as that gathered
from the soil. Then bhall Pennsylvania bo, indeed
tho Kt-'ystono of our Un'on, tearing a polish not'
equalled by any stato or kingdom, in the world. ,- - f.
The events of the last few monlhs have shown
that an increasing interest is felt in this department
and therefore it cannot bo doubted but that tho
Common School Intelligencer, will be welcomed ast
a co-laborer in so important-?! vVOrk, and being made'
tho vehicle of communication between the friends ofi
education, aid in the. proper arranging and develop-'
ing of the system, and be the means of doing much
To the advancement of those objects, and to tho
dissemination of useful scientific information calcu.
lated to expand t)ic mind and improve the heart,
shall the coluin s of the Pennsylvania Fanner and
Common School Intelligencer, be exclusively devot--it,
and it is confidently expected that a generous
public will award to it a liberal support.
Tho Farmer and Intelligencer will Lc printed up
on line white paper and with new type, in royal
quarto from, each number containing eight i;ages of
matter. .It .i)l bo commenced in the month of
