ncss of our country, the sure road to competency
anu the main source 01 wealth, lies at tho louimalion
of ournational prosperity The experience of every
ycoj,t and especially of tho last few years, lia
shown that agrictilturc has been entirely too much
neglected fijr the best good of our country. Tho,.
great desiro of tl)0 present ago for the oceuinulation
of wealth, and the prevailing spirit to seek for il in a
new and shorter courfe, than that pursued by our
ancestors, hud led many from the slow but certain
means of agricultural labor, to the more alluring
employments of professional life, and commercial
enterprise, or tfio still more hazardous fields of
speculation and adventure, in which a fao havo

The lesldl oftiilsunnatural stale of things has been
what might very well have been predicted; a great
scarcity of all tho products of the soil, wilh such an
enormous increase in the price, as to cause their
Importations from foreign countries, to the great
impoverishing and discredit of our own.
This folly and these 0 ils havo now becoino ap

by tiio examples and success of others or the prospect
held out to their view, from tho producing to tbo

they arc sure of being amply recompensed for their
Pennsylvania is emphatically an agricultural
stale, and has thus suficrcd low from the late fluctua
tions and chanires, which have embarrassed our
country, than any of her sister states. Her soil is
not surpassed by any in the world, and her German
rind other citizens arc justly celebrated as being
among the first farmers in the Union. It has thero
foro been considered pcculiaily proper, that in tho
heart of this garden of our country, r'n agricultural
paper should be cstablhlicd, to gather up the expel
ience of intelligent farmers fron all quarters, and
send it abroad, noLpiily ricr our commonwealth,
but to every part of the United States. For tho
purpose or doing this, nnd supplying what has been
considered a desideratum among the periodicals of
our btates, the publisher has been induced and en
couraged by numerous friends of agriculture and
general improvement, to establish the Pennsylvania
l arincr. Ho has, received assurances which lead
him confidently to expect that its columns will bo
enriched with contributions from some of the mos
distinguished scientific and practical farmers and
gardeners, hi our own, as well as some of our sister
slates, which with extracts and republications of
standard and new works upon the science of agricul
ture, will render it both interesting and useful to
every fanner who desires to excel in his most lauda
Pennsylvania has established and is now maturing
a sys'lem of general education by common schools,
which is intruded to carry the blessings of knowledge
to every man's home, and place within tho reach ol

hoped lha'f the plan will continue to bo improved

of intellect be as rich and abundant as that gathered
from the soilf Then shall Pennsylvania be indeej

equalled by any state or kingdom in '.he world.
Tho evcrfts of tho last few months havo shown
that an incrcasintr interest Is felt in this denartment
and therefore it cannot bo doubted but that the
Common School Intelligencer, will be welcomed as
aco-laborcr in so important a work, ond being made
