A semi-monthly publication devoted to Agriculture

Nothing- need be said as to tho importance of tho
ice (j ugriculltire,y.hkh being the great busi
ness, of our country, tho Bute rRid to competency
and the main source of wealth, lies at the foundation
of our national prosperity. The experience of every
year, and especially of the Vl few years, has
thown that agriculture lias beca entirely too much
neglected for tho best good of our country. The
great desire of tho present age Mr the accumulation
of wealth, and tho prevailing spirit to seek for it in a
new and shorter course, than taut pursued by our
anccttors, had led many from the slow but certain
means of agricultural labor, to tho more alluring
employments- ol prolcssional life, and commercial
enterprise, or the still moro hazardous fields of
speculation and adventure, iu which a few have
Miccccdcd even beyond their own expectations,
The result of this unnatural blatc of things has been
what might very well have been predicted; a great
scarcity ot all tlio proUuct3 olthe son, with such an
enormous increase in the price, ns to cause their
importations fiom foreign countries, to the great
impoverishing and discredit ot our own.
this lolly and these c us have now become ap
parent, and many of thotc, who, having been lured
by the examples and success of others or tho prospect
held out to their view, from the producing to the
consuming ela-s, and being disappointed in their ex
pectations, arc now disposed and are making arrange
ments to return to the hone t, the healthful and the
independent employment of tilling tlio soil wheic
they arc sure of being amply recompensed for their
Pennsylvania is emphatically an agricultural
state, and has thus sullered Ics3 from the late fluctua
tions and changes, which have embarrassed our
country, than any of her sister ttatcs. Her soil is
not surpassed by any in the world, and her ticrman
and other citizens arc justly celebrated as being
among the firt farmers in the Union. It has there
fore been considered peculiarly proper, that in the
heart of this garden of our country, an agricultural
paper should be established, to gather up the cxpci
iencc of intelligent farmers from all quarters, and
send it abroad, not only vcr our commonwealth
but to every part of the United States. Por the
purpose of doing this, and supplying wh-.'t has been
considered a dctiderutum among tho periodicals of
our states, the publisher has been induced and cn
couraged by numerous friends of agriculture and
general improvement, to establish Ihc Pennsylvania
l armcr. lie has received assurances which lead
him confidently to expect that its columns will be
enriched with contributions from some ot the nios
distinguished scientific and practical farmers an
cardeners in our own, as well as some of our sister
states, which with extracts and republications of
standard and new works upon the science of agricul
ture, w ill render it both interesting and useful to
every farmcrwhodct.iresto excel in his most lauda
ble cn ploymeut. .
Pcnn-y lvnnia has established and is now maturing
a system ol general education by common schools,
which isintendedto carry the blessings ofknowledg
to every man's home, and place within the reach of
every child m the commonwealth, the means ol in
etruction and improve mcni. This obiect is all im
portant, and ouriiic.uis being ample, it is confidently
hoped that tho plan will continue to bo improve
it carried out, till Ihcmindscfour citizens shall 1;
as highly cultivated as their fields, and the harv
of intellect be as iHiaud abundant as that gathered
from the soil. Then ehall Pennsylvania bo indeed
the Jvevstonc of our Un on, bearing a polish not
equalled by any state or kingdom iu hc world.
. The events of the last few months have show
that an increasing intercut is felt in this department
and therefore it cannot bo doubted but that the
Common School Intelligencer, will be welcomed as
a co-laborer in so important a work, and being madi
ho vehicle of communication l-ctwccn the friends of
