And Common School Intelligencer :
A semi-monthly publication devoted to Agriculture
uarucmng. and the General Imnrovemcnt of the
Mind, published at Harrisburg, Pa. by Benjamin
Nothing need bo said as to the importance of the
science of agriculture, which beinc tho trrcat busi
ness of our country, the sure road to competency
and the main source of wealth, lies at the foundation
of ournational prosperity. The experience of every
year, and especially of the last few years, has
shown that agriculture has been entirely too much
neglected for tho best good of our country. The
great desire of the present age for tho accumulation
of wealth, and the prevailinc spirit to seek for it in a
new and shorter course, than tliut pursued by our
ancestors, had led many from the slow but certain
means of agricultural labor, to tho more alluring
employments of professional life, and commercial
enterprise, or the still more hazardous fields of
speculation and adventure, in which a few have
succeeded even beyond their own expectations.
The result of this unnatural state of things has Lccn
what might very wrtl hac been predicted; a great
scarcity of all the products oCthe soil, with such an
enormous increase in tho prjee, s to cause their
importations from foreign countries,' to the great
impou'rishmgand discredit of our own.
This folly and these 0 'ils have now become' ftp
parent, and many of those, who, having been lured
by the examples and success of others or the prospect
held out to their icw, from the producing to tho
consuming class, and being disappointed in thcircx
pcctations,aro now disposed and are making arrange
ments to return to the hone t, the healthful and the
independent employment of, tilling the soil whcie
they arc sure of being amply recompensed for iheir
labor. , 1
Pennsylvania is emphatically an agricultural
stiitc, and has thus suffered less from the late fluctua
tions and changes, which hae embarrassed out
country, than any of her sister stales. Her soil is
not surpassed by any fn the world, and her German,
and other citizens arc justly celebrated as being
among the first farmers in the Union. It has thcro
fore been considered peculiarly proper, that in tho
heart of this garden of our country, an agricultural
paper should be established, to gather up the cxpcii
lcnce of intelligent farmers from all quarters, and
send it abroad, not only over our commonwealth,
but to every part of the United States. For the
purpose of doing this, and supplying what has.becn
considered a desideratum among the periodicals of
our stales, the publisher has lcc'n induced and en
couraged by numerous friends of agriculture and
general implement, to establish the Pcnnsyhania
Farmer. Ho has received assurances which lead
him confidently to expect that its columns will be,
enriched with contributions from 301110 of the most
distinguished scientific and practical farmers and
gardeners in our own, as well as some of our sister
states, which with extracts and republications of
standard and ncw works upon the science of agricul
ture, will render it both interesting and useful to
every farmer who desires to excel in his most lauda
ble cn.ploymeut. ,
Pennsylvania has established and is now maturing,
a system of general education by common schools,
which is intended to carry the blessings of knowledgo
to every man's home, and place within tho reach of
every child in tho commonwealth, tho means of in
struction and improvcmeni. This object is all im
portant, and ournic.ms being ample, it is confidently
hoped that the plan will continue to be improved
& carried out, till the minds of our citizens shall be
as highly cultivated as their fields, and the harvest,
of intellect be as rich and abundant as that gathered
from the soil. Then shall Pennsylvania be indeed
the Keystone of our Un'on, bearing a polish not
equalled by any state or kingdom in the world.
Tho e cuts of the last few months have shown
that an increasing interest is felt in this department
ami therefore it cannot be doubted but that the
Common School Intelligencer, will bo welcomed as
a co-laborer in so important a work, and being made
the vehicle of communication between the friends of
education, aid in the proper arranging and develop
ing of the system, and bo the means of doing much
To the advancement of these objects, and to tho
dissemination of useful ocicntific information calcu
lated to expand tho mind and improve the heart,
shall the colum-s of tho Pennsylvania Farmer and
Common School Intelligencer, be exclusively dctot
hi, ami it is confidently cxpei ted that a generous
public will award to it a liberal support.
Tho Farmer and Intelligencer will bo printed up-'
on fine while paper and with new type, in royal
quarto from, each number containing eight pages of
matter. It will be commenced in the month of
November, or as soon as a sufficient number of sub
scribers arc obtained to justify the expense, and re
gularly issued during the first' and third weeks of
every month, at ONE DOLLAR PER ANNUM
layablc licforc the issuing of tho sixth number.
Any person who will procure and forward ten res
ponsible subscribers shall receive a copy, or eleven
papers will lie sent to any 0110 office for $10.
Post masters and others friendly to tho objects
aro requested to act as agents in obtaining subscri
bers, and forward tho names to the publisher on or
beforo the first of November next.
