Why don.t he come! I've Ijokcd so long,
And do not see him yei ;
I fear lie's gone another course,
And will pour me forget.
D nt no! he'll not forget, I'm sure,
He promised me he'd conic,
And kaid ho would be here lo night,
If I would " I c at home."
And I have staid ut home, although,
Invited oil to tea;
I've staid, borause of all my fiiends,
I rather him would see.
But oh ! I do not see him yet,
'Tis lime for him to come,
And Pa ami Ma are gone away,
And I'm itlonc at home.
Oh! what a pretiy chance he'd have,
While I'm alone "at home,"
He then can tc 11 how much he loves
Oh dear ! -'Why don't he come 1
But now he comes; his faro I see,
And he will soon be heic;
And Pa bmI Ma arc gone away,
And all tlio huuse is clear.
Yes, here he cosies; his steps I hear
Til haste to let him in ;
A better chance he'll never hive.
His ' love tale" to begin.
And I'll sny yes, towards the last,
liut first I'll answer no;
For many a gii I in being fast,
Hua lost her only I c u.

next in order, and these we have of the
very best kind, much better thansimi
lar implements in Europe; lighter
more easily handled, and there arc one
or two in common use with us, such for
instance, as the horse rake, and that
i K'iiDt instrument, tho cradle, which ar
j unknown or unused abroad; in truth,
I our people have had so much to do wiih
j comparatively small means that their
, ingenuity has been tasked to invent tin:
j most cllicient instruments, and to make
the most active use of them. Thus
I there are two words in almost all Ian
j guages, and well defined in most dic
tionaries, but of which Europeans have
scarcely any idea, and these are the axe
and the plough. To cut down a tree,
the great business of American seniors,
is a strange event to a European far
mer. And then it mar make us smile
j to see, as wc may on the continent of
lijuipoo, ai tne present time, a. whole
j drove of horses I have myself actual
ly seen eight in a single plough and
j sometimes the whole quadruped force
I of the farm, three or four cows, and
j perhaps a bull or two, with the aid of
; several horses, toiling slowly through
the great work of turning up'thc soil
! nay, even in some parts of England, at
j this moment, may be seen six large
I horses, with two full grown men return-
ing from the field after having ploughed
during the day, three quarters of an
a pair of horses, would have got thro'
an acre or an acre and a half.
From the implements let us turn to
our stock of animals.
And first of our IIorsks: Ueginnin
with the highest blooded stork, I Uiin
it probable that the United States pos
sess quite as good a race as there is in
Europe. The prevailing opinion is, that
the Arabian horse is the original of that
animal. I doubt the historical fact;
but if it be so, he is tho parent stock of
the horse, just as the father of all apples
is the crab, which has been sweetened
bv cultivation into the bell-flower.
Undoubtedly the Arabian has improved
the English horse has given him finer
sinews, more compact bones, and
greater intelligence, till the cross has
become avowedly the first of his kind.
The truth is, that a race is but a quick
succession of long jumps, and the little
light Arab is out-jumped by the gigan
tic stride of the stronger, larger, longer
legged English horse, who has beaten
him on his own sands in the cast, ami
would distance him on any course in
Europe. Indeed, the very first Arabian
imported into England two centuries
ago, called the Markhnm Arabian, was
constantly beaien, and mv impression
is, that no Arabian horse ever did win
a rare in that country. The belief of
our breeders is, that whatever good
there may be in the Arabian is exceed
ingly slow in show ing itself; that he has
already given to the English horse all
he can give, and that it is on the whole
safer to adhere to the highest bred Eng
lish stock, rather than risk its degener
acy by any inferior mixture. Our blood
horses, therefore, come directly from
England, and it is rather odd that the
King's stables, while there was a King
and lie had stables, furnished the high
est priced horses for republican Ameri
ca. Of the comparative estimation of
the English and Arabian horse, we
have lately seen a striking example.
The Imaum of Muscat sent to the Pres
ident of the I nited States two Arabian
horses, which, from tho character of
the giver, we arc bound to presume,
were of the highest class. These horses
were sold at public auction, and no one
could be found to give more fur them
than six hundred and fifty dollars for
one, and six hundred and seventy live
or tne oiner. ow, in tne same ncign
orhood where these were sold, arc
very spirited breeders, who would not
buy these Arabians at even so low a
rate, but w ho had actually bought from
the stables of the King of England, at
the price of twenty fire thousand dol-
ars, a lavonte horse, Priam, one ot
whose colts is in iho exhibition hero ;
even as between the English breed und
our own, the impression on this side of
the water is, that lor some time past the
tendency of English breeding is rather
to encourage speed than bottom that
their horses are becoming leggy, and
that the descendants of the English
stock, in this country, have more endu
rance, more bottom for long heats than
their ancestors. The question, when
ever it is tested will be decided perhaps
by a few seconds. This stylo of horse,

ins goou qualities an come down thro'
the interior races; and the Godolphin
Arabian, to which the English horse
owes much of his superiority, was ac
tuallv a cart horse in Paris.
Our ordinary race of farm horses is
extremely good. I he w armth and va
riahleness of the climate have settled
down the stiff and heavy frame of the
European horse, and given us a race of
quick, alert animals, admirably fitted to
scrona tne activity ot the tanner him
self. So with respect to Cattle, wc have
almost every variety, and the best of
all the varieties. The emiVrants often
bring their best and favorite animals :
the passenger vessels brine cows to
give milk during their voyages, and be
then profitably sold here, ami these are
generally of "the highest kind; com
merce imports from every quarter, the
animals w hich will pay best, and arc
therefore the best at home ; and spirited
breeders have gone into the English
markets and brought over some of the
highest priced animals. Tne result is.
it wc have a great accumulation of
stock of every description. There arc
the Aldei neys, w ith their rich milk, it
self a cream Tho Ayrshircs, copious
givers of milk strongly inclined to but
ter, with forms fitted for the butcher.
The Devons, an ancient raVe, brought
:j.v the first settlers of New Eii'dand.
and indicating their descent by their re
semblance to the improved Devons,
with which our stock has been of kite
years abundantly recruited. Fitted, by
their milkiness, lor ihe dairy : bv their
delicate flesh, for the knife; by their
lutckncss, for the plough, they claim to
ie second to no other race : and if se.
cond to any, only to the short horned
Durham, which is so familiar to us all
as to require no description, which un
doubtedly now unites the greatest mn.
of suffrages in its favor, of easy fatten
ing, of early maturity, and of excellent
food, more than any other race of
Of Shff.i' too, wc have all the varie
ties. The I.eiccister, with their early
fitness for the knife, and their large
carcasses and large wool; the Merino,
for its smaller yield of rich wool; the
Southdow n, cxci llatit for both wool and
carcase; and, finally, we have a less
known breed coming into reputation ; it
is the Tunisian or broad tailed sheep,
originally sought mainly for the carcass,
but. having proved itself very hardy,
well acclimated, when crossed by other
breeds, so as to acquire a finer wool, it
may become a standard stock among
us. Nor are we less favored in
SuixK We have all the breeds:
among others peculiarly our own, is
what is called the Chester county breed
and the Berkshire breed, just coming
into great and deserved estimation
among us. And even the common
breeds that run about, without knowing
their extraction, are often admirable, I
remember well that the Pennsylvania
Quaker farmer, Jacob Brown, Com
mander-in-Chief ol the American Armv
during the last war, told me how much
lie was struck by the beauty of the hogs
which he saw running about Philadel
phia and I have since often had occa
sion to admire them.
Of all these various animals we have
specimens now before us which we
may all examine, and, if wc desire it,
obtain them at reasonable rates, and no
one can doubt the real economy to a
farmer of possessing these improved
breeds. An inferior animal takes as
much trouble and as much food as a
good one, and then the care and the
eHnse are often thrown away upon
cattle that will give neither m'ilk nor
beef. How- many stunted milk cows
do we see who may be said to go dry
all the year round how many steers
who, after emptying a whole coin crib,
at last, in the spring, look like the crib
itself, all ribs without, and all hollow in
side, lint crossing and training have
created animals w ho turn at once into
milk or beef every thing we put into
them who give plenty of milk if you
want milk, plenty of fat if you desire
beef, and who, coming earlier into the
dairy or the market, save a whole
year's expense of leeding. I hoe,
inerciore, that wc may profit by the
present opportunity of improving our
siock, and encouraging the spirited
breeders w ho place the means of doing
a in our power.
