A Most Admirable Address.
The Richmond papers contain full
reports of an address delivered by
Hon. Henry A. Wise, before the
Pomologioal and Horticultural So?
ciety of Richmond, which is pro?
nounced one of his finest efforts.
Certainly its perusal will justify this
eulogium, and the following extracts
will give our readers a fair sample of
tho address. They bear entirely upon
the agricultural interests, not only
of Virginia, bat of. every other
Southern State. We earnestly com?
mend them to the attention of our
readers, with the hope they will be
profited by a perusal:
' This state of desolation of lands
and of destitution and corruption of
laborers, demand, I repeat, a total,
fundamental change in our economy
of land culture and of land labor.
And we mast accommodate ourselves
to these changes, extreme as they
are. They are not embarrassments
merely, which suggest propositions !
to be accepted or rejected ut discre?
tion;, but they are the stern, stub?
born facts and fates of revolation al?
ready accomplished, and entirely re?
versing the order of everything in
our whole past life ?nd economy.
The results are upon us, and the ne?
cessity of the case knows no law, bat |
to compel as to make the most of au
already realized and inexorable con?
dition. Hard, harsh, sadden, sar- !
prising and shoaking as this may at
first seem, yet there is great consola?
tion in the hope that this very neces?
sity may well compensate ns by forc?
ing ns into improvements, which bat
for it we would never have been
driven to adopt. The war has shown
that oar previous, past condition was
not only not tho best, but not for our
good at all.
We must apply and practice the old
and now precious aphorism :
"Tempora mutanlur et nos tnutamu
cttmillis." The great questions are:
What Bhould be our changes with
the changes of the times ?
How change ?
The first change absolutely neces?
sary to be made in argiculture, is
from the plantation to tho farming
system. This requires a new mode
of culture, new laborers, new imple?
ments, new crops, more various, on
a smaller scale, more contracted and
concentrated, requiring more skill,
more care, and yielding . the most j
profit on the smallest space. Tho |
plantation demanded thousands of
acres, and. hundreds of hands of
manual labor, operating on the
largest space, to produce raw mate?
rial for food and clothing, requiring I
but little skill with under hands to
make the crude crops-habitually
and ignorantly wasteful-given to I
one idea alone, here tobacco, there
wheat, elsewhere cotton or rico, or
corn or sogar-monotonous in rou?
tine-worked by slaves, unskillful,
unthrifty and costly, and not in?
terested in success or profit-with no I
applied science or art beyond that of I
an uneducated overseer, and literally
driving nway from its sections, both |
ircm tcr/nc z~i country, ''thc .strong
man of America," the master me?
chanic; nursing tho pleasures, pas?
times, luxuries, ease, extravagance j
and dissipation of proprietor, scatter?
ing and segregating and making sparse
the white population of the country,,
utterly repellipg the class of bold
working yeomanry, the proudest'
boast of any land; and weakening
the lands for defensive war.
The speaker went on to explain of
what consisted farming. It requires,'
said he, skill as well as labor; it mast
be watchful to waste nothing out of
the small produot; its manipulator
and operator is the owner, interested
for life in success and profit; its
habite of life must be plain and sim?
ple and frugal. The next essential
thing to farming, instead of plant?
ing, in Virginia, is: That Virginians,
if they would not be driven out from
their own inheritance, should them?
selves do this work cf farming for
themselves. They must not call on
Hercules, nor freedman, nor .Ger
man, nor Swede, nor immigrant from
any clime; but they must put their
own shoulders to the wheel, and do
tho task of men for themselves.
What is to prevent tho young men nt
once from summoning their energies
to braco themselves to the great task
of renovation at the very source of
succor and supply? They have just
been trained to all the hardships and
rivations of privates in war. Have
not seen them in a day put off the
broad-cloth of the parlor for the
"glorious gray," ^inl mardi and bi
viouao in ice and BDOW and rain, in
heat and cold, in want and weariness,
and, when well worn down, rouse in
an instant with fresh life and vigor
to fight as men never fought bet?re
for this, their loved land, nnd so
march in mud and fight for years to
the last? I tell them, and would tell
it with a trumpet-tongue os loud as
that of war, if I could, that their
country, "their own, their native
land," their hearths and altars and
cradle, no less now than in war, calls
on them to bare their arms and. buf?
fet with these times.
Here is some most excellent advice
to the young mon of the South:
He advised the landholders of the
State to givo'every encouragement to
our own white labor, and the young
men of the State to apply themselves
lo the study oi agriculture as a
science, if they would save the real
estate of their fathers and keep
sacred the altars of their own birth?
places and homes. It is far more
honorable to do this than to skulk
into professions by the back door and
become pettifogging lawyers and
quack doctors, who practice their
arts to rob clients or kill patients; or
to seek soft places in clerkships, or
drumming, or running, or standing
and'waiting at tho bock and call of
somebody else's business. It is much
morn respectable, und certainly more
He appealed to the manly, proud,
brave and strong men of the State,
who had neither means nor settled
ursuits, to adopt agriculture as a
He spoke of the importance of tho
establishment of chairs in our differ?
ent colleges for instruction in agri?
cultural science; of the necessity of
immigration; of the propriety of
dividing large tracts of lands into
small farms; tho different systems of
labor, and of the inevitable result of
proper and persistent pursuit of the
ideas he had inculcated.
"The oldman eloquent" concluded
his address with a beautiful invoca?
tion to his mother State, and urged
her to bo brave and strong, append?
ing the two following cheering stan?
"Never despair! thc darkest cloud
That ever lowered will pass away;
The longest night will yield to dawn
The dawD <'fil kindle into day.
What, if ar jd thy lonely bark
Break fierce and high tho waves of
Stretch every oar! there's laud ahead !
And thou wilt gain the port to?
"The farmer knows not of his fields,
With floods, or drought, or blight
He questions not the fickle skies,
Bat ploughs, and sows, and toils in
Then up! and strive, and dare, and
No doubt a harvest thou wilt gather;
'Tis time to labor, and to wait,
And trust iu God for genial
