I gave you in my last sonic account of the

place in a manner highly creditable to the email-1
cipaicu, anu intensely gratiiying to the lrienus
of liberty. The quiet, good order, and solemni
ty of the day, were every where remarkable.
Indeed, is it not a fact worth remembering, that
whereas, in former years, a single day's relaxa
tion from labor was met by tho slaves with shout
ing, and revelry, and merry-making, yet now,
when the last link of slavery was brokon, forev
er, sobriety and decorum were especially the or
der of the day I The perfect order and subor
dination to tho laws which marked the first day
of August, arc yet unbroken. AVo have now
nearly live mouths' experience of entire emanci
pation ; and 1 venture to say, that a period of
more profound peace never existed in the West
Indies. There have been disputes about wages,
as in Now England and other free countries ;"but
no concert, no combination even, here ; and the
only attempt at a combination was among the 1

the island will be suffered to become desolate,
and the need slaves relapse into oaruarism, tec.
These things have been speculated about, and ,
gloomy predictions have had their day ; the time
has now come lor the prool. I'copic do not buy
land and houses, and rent properties for long
terms of years, in countries where life is insecure,
or where labor cannot he had, and the tendency
of things is to ruin and decay. In shoit, men,
in their senses, do not embark on board a sink
ing ship. Confidence is the very soul of pros
perity ; of the oxihtence of this confidence in this
island, the immense operations in real estate,
since the 1st of August, are abundant proof.
There are multitudes of instances in which es
tates have sold for 120,000 more than was asked
for them six mouths ago; and yet at that time
they were considered very high. A proprietor
who was persuaded a few weeks since to part
with his estate for a very large sum of money,
wont and bought it back again at an advance of

havo been entered into. An estate called "Edgc

bearing my testimony to the correctness of the
statements made by otir countrymen, Thome

by all classes, and had free access to every source
of valuable information. If they have not done
justice to the subject in their book, it is because
the manifold blessings of a deliverance from
slavery are beyond tho powers of language to
represent. hen I attempt, as I havo done in

From the Yankeo Farmer.
A meeting of Farmers was held in the State
House, on Thursday evening, Feb. 7, under the
direction of the Agricultural Commissioner
Isaac C. Hales, Eq. of Northampton, in the
Chair. Subjects discussed Corn, Wheat, &c.
This was the third of a series of mediums, which
it is proposed to continue during the session of
mc Legislature; it paired in an interesting and
profitable manner. The farmers of the Legisla
ture, from everypartr tho State, take a deep
interest in the succterf tlicsc meetings, and by
participating in the dilr.issions. they add greatly
to their interest andjiETSncc. As an evidence
of the feeling witlfvcl.rft tlicsc meetings are re
garded, even by out citsy wc will mention that
one individual, a young nW remarked to us,'
after the adjournment onVhursday evening,
that "Ho wished the mcctingX were held every
night, as he had derived more, information and
experienced more pleasure tha evening, than
from any other meeting he had nor attended."
This is tho right way. Wc want to sec a spirit
of enquiry manifested by our youig men in re
gard to tho great subject of agriculture. If that
subject is properly attended to by tic rising gen
eration, the whole country will bo aorc benefit
ted than by the acquisition of thousnds of miles
of territory more thin the discotery, that the
basis of our soil is a vast and extensive bed of
golden ore. 1

FF.F.DING OF COWS,
my opinion there is one important nart
which is almost universally kept out of sight in
feeding cows tho health of the organ which lias
to digest and convert tho food into such a state
as to give healthy nourishment to tho system or
body. If the same attention were paid to this
point as there is to the quality of food, the cow,
the poor and the rich man's friend, would always
bo healthy and yield liberally to supply our
wants. Many forgot to pay attention to this
point, and direct their efforts to increase the lac-
Jitcrous (milk giving) powers of this animal
JL lilt) lO U lillll4iVU.
If these two arc attended to. the feediurr of
milch cows, and neat cattle in general, is p
anu simple. tvitn lUdiomus manaaemciit

ci-Hiin4ui, ruia-oaga, evic. Ill
winter or summer, wo may greatly improve the
of tho cow, if we do not lose
sight of the well established truth that both the
stomach and udder are limited iu power ; and
that groat care must bo taken not to overload
the stomach with too much food, nor the udder
with too great a quantity of bjood.
If is well observed by a certain writer, that
thero exists an intimate connection between the
fouith stomach and the udder of the cow ; and
if the former is too much oppressed with food, it
becomes inflamed or disordered, and the latter,
namely, the udder, sympathises with it, and con
sequently becomes greatly injured. The time
when we arc mot in danger of thus over-feeding
the cow, is when taken from the summer pas
ture. Great care should be taken at this time.
The best directions I know how to give in or
der to prevent tho bad effects spoken of, is to
feed cows liberally that is, give them food of
ten, but in small quantities, especially such as
have been lately taken into the dairy but this
must never be lost sight of the food should bo
of the best quality. In eating only a small quan
tity at one time, the cow ruminates better, and
the food is more readily digested and assimilated
or prepared for nourishment ; the consequence
is the cow will bo iu good health and give much
and rich milk.
Roots, especially mangcl-wurtzol, ruta-baga,
sugar beet and potatoes, if properly mixed up
with hay, arc an excellent food for milch cows,
and I belicvo to steam or cook the roots is a
great advantage. But should you not steam the
' A . i i.'ii i i,ituBti,aii-
slices, and some bran with a little salt added.
Cut straw and chaff may now and then bo added.
Lest you might, on the other hand, stint your
cow or cattle, lot me tell you that nothing is
gained by stinting any kind of cattle, much less
a milch cow ; for one that is well fed will keep
her flesh and yield twice as much milk as one
that is kept indifferently.
A certain English writer on this subject has
said much in these words :
"Come, kind man, pile tho cow her food,"
Uy little and often but let it be good."
If this rule be properly attended to, and the
cow kept perfectly clean, tho result will be, your
cow will give much and good milk, and breed
fine calves. Bo sure to give your cow good,
pure water. Filthy or impure water should by
all means be avoided. Perhaps nothing has in
jured good cows more than impure water ; it is
one of tho most certain causes of abortion or
slipping of the calf. In short it does frequently
engender had udders, scouring, &c. Practical
