"Why," says Ossian, "should'st thou
build thy hall, soft of the winged daYs? thou
lookest from the towers to-day, yet a few
years, and the blast of the desert comes—it
howls in the empty court, and whistles a
round thy half worn shield!" Then why
should man look forth as he fondly hopes up
on the sunny future with the eye of fancy,
and lay up .the golden visions, which have
passed like sunbeams in his pilgrimage, in
the hope ofbrighter ones yet to come, when
to-morrow the clods may be heaped on his
coffin, and above his quiet rest the sepulchral
views tremble in the wind I Alas ! if there

romanticity, and milder beauties of soul
pleasing nature: glittering misery does not
sooth and entertain the mind of man in any

It is undoubtedly a fact, that in proportion
to our population, too many leave the occu
pation of the Agriculturist, for other em
ployments. If this arise from its being con
sidered that the employment of the husband
man is not respectable, it is a very great
mistake. Every thing is honorable which
is useful and virtuous. This is an employ
ment instituted by : God himself, and by him
peculiarly owned and blest. It is that on
which every thing depends. True it is la
borious; but, then, labour brings health, and
health is the fountain of employment and
happiness—and it is health alone that can
render life desirable. The condition of the
firmer is thecondition ofindependence—
little dominion is his own, his comforts are
his Own, and he is not at the mercy of the
public whim or cap rice . It is not necesarily
the case, in this happy country-espeeial4 , -,that
the -farmer must- be- a-stupid,- ignorant - man:
He is taught in his youth the first rudiments
of education, and he has many spare hours
to read. - In the heat of summer's noon, and
by the long winter's evening fire, he has
much time for his newspapers and his books,
and in this country they are placed within
the reach of all. The farmer, by his prox
imity to God as He is displayed in the works
of His creation, is led to "look through na
ture up to nature's God;" and his nearness to
the sourceless and endless Author • of all
created things accounts for the unusual ex
tension of religious feeling among t who
"venerate the plough."

Fationterion.—Merns. Riley and Scott,
°Nile city of New York, own a large body
of land in the upper -end of this county, and
extending into the south west corner of Mer•
cer county. A great accession of settlers
has taken place lately on those lands. We
are authorised from an authentic source to
say, that between one and two hundred
families of new eetderf will be on the next_
spring, principally frOm Massachusetts and
New Jersey. The tide of emigration is
nearly equally rapid to other parts of the
country. Almost every day we hear ofnew
settlers. This is as it should be. We have
long been satisfied that if the resources Hof
Western Pennsylvania were fully developed,
they hold out to emigrants much stronger
inducements than those of Illinois, &c. most
viard. We sincerely wish our new and en.
terprizing settlers health and prosperity.
