-civilized, roving tribes, in the early stages of sot
MeV", but little vegetable matter was secured for
their snateuance, except the spontaneous produe•
tioqs of the earth, which were everywhere the
offspring of fertile sail; but as they became more
civilized and possessed a more permanent abode,
it became necessary to adopt some means by
which to increase vegetable products. Hence a
system of agriculture was commenced, which
was at first very inverted, consisting of nothing
more than merely taking advantage of natural
fertility. The subject as received many itu•
provements during a long series of ages, but
there has been but little deselopetient of its
true fundamental principles until recently. Re-
cent investigations prove it to be based purely
on principles, profund principles, whichlare auk•

Chambers defines it to be "the art of disposing
the soil in such a manner as to make it produce
in the greatest abundance and perfeetion those
vegetables which are useful to man and - the ani
mals depending on him for subsistence."
This definition we consider not merely the
boo. we halm over seen, but absolutely the true
°be. A moment's attention to it will show
that for a man to realize its idea of an agricul
turist, he must thoroughly comprehend the phe
nomena of the three great kingdoms of nature—
the mineral, vegetable and mineral—not only in
• analysis and combinations of each within
i self, but also in the varied and complex rela•
tiotis they sustain to each other. Soil is value. I

mace from its properties as food for animal life.
Beginning then with the ultimate object, the
susttnance of men and animals, the agricultu
rist should understand the physiology of both
himself and every animal and vegetable he reirs.s.
In addition to this, be should be familiar with
organic and inorganic chemistry. Should know
t4O constituent elements of each vegetable he

sheep for the meat market, ale should know the

must apply such ingredients as will supply the
deficiency. To do Ibis, it is indispensable nes
tessary that he is a profund scholar, and other
wise he is unfit to labor successfully in the sphere
of the agriculturist
Thikscienee, too, is much more difficult than
many others, inasmuch as it is inductive, while
they are deductive. For instance, take the
ewe of Mathematics • after certain axioms and
definitioue have been laid down, the science con
sist; chiefly in deducing conclusions from them;
and any mathematical problem .may be solved
by the application of principles previously es
tablished, while the agriculturist has no definite
rule by which to act, but he must classify and
arrange the phenomena of a heterogeneous mass
of facts as varied as they are numerous. This
classification, involving as it does the perception
of occult relations between things apparently the
most dissimilar, has ever been one of the most
diffickt and at the same time important works of
human genius. No superficial eduisation will
enable the student of agriculture to investigate
understandindly the deep end sublime truths
which are embraced within this extensive field ;

Another evidenee of the importance attached
agriculture by the lesrued of ancient times
was furnished by Virgil in tfle days of Angus
tus, by writingat the request of the eminent
statesman, Macaenaii, a beautiful Poem in four
books, for the express purpose of recommending
agriculture to the consideration of the nobility
of Rome, as a most dignified employment fit for
Cmsar himself. Our agriculture may be regard
ed as one great thread in the fabric of our Union.
It binds us together with more than filial affeci
tion. It is also a good civilizing agent. The
rude barbarities of uncivilized life disappear be.
fore its onward march, and the wild, yet virgin
soil yields to it its luxuriant abundance. May
the day no:. be far distant when agriculture shall
have gained the proud preeminence it so justly
deserves, whet, around it, as the grand center,
shall eirele all the professions, and earth sub:-
