Why is it that Agricultural papers do
not prosper generally in the Southern as
they do in the Northern Stated.? Is it be
cause they are conducted by gentlemen of
less ability or of less moral 'orth, or is it
bee use the farmers of the South are too
poor to support the preis ? Not one of
those objections can he urged itt truth, and
yet many useful paupers devoted to Agri
culture have been dicontinued in the Situth
for waint of patroage. Such a state (of
things is any thing else but creditable to
osar coutitry. and we trust the blot wil
-hortly tie expunged. Ita a lormer com
munication we gave it its our opition that
the farmer should be a reading man, and
the nire minutely we examnine this point
the more thoroughly are we convinced of
its correctness. The farter shouad not
only read Agricultural, bm political pa
pers; for surely no one is tuore itterested
in the perpetuniy of our free institutions
than he it. We do not think, however,
that he should permit his mind to be-come
so absorbed in politic-s as to cause himt to
abandon, or even neclect. his daily avoca- I
(ions. While it is true that a very large
nutnber of farmers support the press with
scan. They might with as mouch proprie.
ty say that they had no lime to eat or
sleep. for there is no one who does not have
hours of leisure that tight the piofitably
employed in thc Cacluisition ofuseful know
ledge. Otae is ready, however, to eAcusc
hiniself on the ground of not havinag re
eeived a liberal education i . his youth ;
but this we consider n por apology for re
maining in ignorance, when it is coinmplete
ly in the power of almost every one to im
prove their mitds to somne extent ; and
this becomes the imperative duty of all,
from the f'act that both moral and intellec
tual culture are conducive to earthly pros -
p-rity aud hapitess.-llan. a-s a reflect- i
ing and ratiomnal heitng. ought to ex-rcaie i

We have long been of opinion that Agri- I
culture should be taught in our Schouls,
theoretically if not practically. When the
King -f Sparta was asked - what things i
be thoucht most poroper for bays to learn ?" i
muswered -those thingsi which they ex- i
