Agriccltcral Edccatiox. The necessity for
a Proper System of Instruction in Agricul
Axaltticai. Labora tort, Yale College, j
New Haven, Conn., Jan. 31, 1851. j
I do not propose to take up the above subject
in its broadest seuse, but to confine niytelf to a
comparatively limited field. I hall say little at
present as to the want, felt more and more eve
ry day by an increasing majority among- our
fanners, of educational institutions especially
adapted to their wants, but would call attention
to a point which lias Wen overlooked by many
in their zealous advocacy of the general cause.
It seems to me, that a chief reason for the an
nual failure of so many plans bearing vpon the
educational interests of the farmer, may be
found in a real scarcity which exists, of men
competent to take charge of the proposed insti
tutions. To those who have never reflected
upon this subject my assertion may seem a
strong one, when I say, that if any six States of
the Union were within the present year to make
provisions for the establishment of State agri
cultural schools, or colleges, v.itliiu their respec
tive borders were to endow them largely in
every department to furnish them vitli libra
ries, implements, nnseums, apparatus, buildings,
and proper corps of professors and teachers to
fill them, I will even go further than this, and
say, that if in your own State of New York, a
large institution were planned out, and all prop
er departments of instruction pecuniarily pro
vided for, it would be a difficult matter to fill j
them satisfactorily with thoroughly competent i
men. Enough of those who would gladly ac- J
cept such appointments as might, be offered, !
could doubtless be found; but the question is,
would they be just such instructors as the farmer
There are certain points relative to which he
demands information from various branches of
science, and this information to be of value mu::t
be correct. Mistakes, blunders, misconceptions,
from the heads of a great State school, sent
forth under authority, and promulgated rapidly,
would cause infinitely greater mischief than our
going without a school altogether for some years
to come. For such reasons, extreme caution
should be used in the selection of instructors
for any large or influential school; and for such
reasons, among many others which might be ad
duced, I have ventured to say as above, that we
really have not in the country the men that are
If the farmers of any State were to select
persons to impart instruction, or to serve as ex
amples, in any practical department of this busi
ness, would they be contented with mere pro
fessions, or mere hearsay reports of their suc
cess or skill? Above all, would they not be dis
posed to question the cxpertness of one who
professed lo have made himself familiar with
every department of mere mechaniclal labor, in
the lapse of a very short time? If teaching the
use of the plow in the best possible manner, and
under even circumstance, were for instance the
object, would they be content with a man who
could only show the experience of one or two
years in the use of that implement? Dy no
means; they would say we can do as well as
he can ourselves, and do not need such instruc
tion as this; we want a master of the subject
one who has studied it thoroughly in every de
partment of practice, and has brought an intel
ligent mind to bear upon all the variations of
use and construction in different districts. V"ith
a man of less acquirement than these, in any
practical matter, no community of farmers
would be satisfied; they would not receive his
advice with respect, and would not consider his
opinion as worth much more than that of any
other intelligent individual.
I think all will agree with me, that these
views are correct with regard to subjects of pure
practice, and that most farmers would act in
accordance with them. Now, I ask, why do
not the same views obtain with regard to the
teaching of science? We see men who are, in
all ordinary circumstances, shrewd and saga
cious, swallowing every fable that comes to them
in a scientific guise.
The merest charlatan may take up his books
and mysterious looking apparatus, and having
familiarized himself with a few hard names, is
able to persuade the mass of those who meet
him that he knows everything within, upon,
and above the earth, that explains the action of
nature's laws. Allow ine to say a few words in
direct reference to the falsity, and even absurdi
ty of such pretensions.
In speaking of the mechanical operations of
husbandry, such as plowing, I have said that as
a general fact, entire proficiency could not be at
tained within one or even two seasons; a long
course of experience was necessary. It is then
so much easier to read the laws of nature, or
rather of God, which bear upon those wonder
ful structures of plants and animals that vc see
about us? In the growth of the humblest weed
that flourishes by the wayside, a series of
changes, transformations, and metamorphoses
go on, which as yet the highest effort of the
human intellect has failed to fully explain and
To produce the feeble stem which we crush
under our feet in passing, the powers of . earth,
air and water, have joined with those of the far
distant sun, and daring its short life, it has been
an example of a complication of most wonder
ful laws, imposed by the Almighty Maker of all.
Ke has seen fit in his wisdom to ordain that ev
ery step in knowledge must be won by toil and
exertion, and thus it is in the present case; we
are only able to slowly unfold the wonders that
are occurring on every side, during the every
day experience of life. The field, too, widens
as we advance, until we find that every step has
its consequence every breath of air its appoin
ted mission every drop of dew its office to per
form; we discover that we are in the midst of
cause and results, of which our knowledge is
quite limited: that the threads we have seized
only guide us to new and more difficult laby
rinths of investigations. What we know dwin
dles away, when we compare it with the sum of
that which we desire.
The student of natural science, then the
true follower of patient, earnest,- truth.sceking
research grows not bolder, but more modest,
as he wines his way: he knows that the highest
reach of knowledge is, and ever must be, limi
ted; he feels each day so many wants yet unsat
isfied, sees so many problems yet partially solv
ed, or totally inexplicable, that he leans con
stantly toward caution," rather than rashness,
and is disposed to qualify his strongest convic
tions on all theoretical points.
Of those who are not thus impressed by the
advance of years, and the increase of experi
ence, it must be said that their opinions caunot
be entitled to great confidence. Or e who can
promptly and confidently settle every question
proposed, who ha3 no doubt as to his own abili
ty of decision on the most intricate and compli
cated problems, must be cither a man who has
advanced very far beyond the range of the
other votaries of science in his own day, or one
who is not able to appreciate the difficulties
which surround him, and who is not, therefore,
a safe gui le. There is a third supposition iu
the above case which is to consider such a
man designing' and unscrupulous; but this is,
let us hope, the rare alternative.
I might go on at great length, but these hints
will, I think, be sufficient to sho'.v that farmers
must not only have instruction, but that they
must have it of the right character. It is obvi
ous that every person who comes nlong, claim
ing to be highly scientific, should not be taken
upon trust, but should be tested in some way, as
to the soundness of his pretensions. Let the
evidence of other scientific men be brought in,
and let satisfactory proofs be required of his
ability to do what he professes. This is not
said with a view of recommending any particu
lar person or persons, as to be followed implic
itly, but with the desire of arousing more cau
tion than has hitherto been exercised in these
matters. ''AH is not gold that glitter.-," a:id ail
is not true science, that is hiirh sounding.
It is for such reasons that I have said, we
have not at present a sufficient number of the
proper men to found and continue our agricul
tural schools, in a manner that will sati-fy the
expectations of the community. The training
of such men, then, is a work of great import
ance, and even urgency. It is a work that, can
not be accomplished at short notice: one or two
years will not do it; wc want those who have
had extensive experience, who havo availed
themselves of every advantage, and who have
learned to know what the necessities ef the
Among the wants of the farmer, I consider
this lack of first rate instructors one of the
most pressing and urgent; it is useless for him
to establish schools, unless he can find proper
teachers, and he ought not to be driven, by their
premature establishment, into any dependence
on tho se who can only mislead and disappoint
Here is a most promising field for enterprise
and energy; here are many openings that with
in a few years must be filled. Those who now
enter on the study of science as applied to agri
culture, will find their acquisitions in immedi
ate demand. If but fifty or one hundred intel
ligent young men would, for the coming few
years devote their efforts to the acquisition of
the various branches of science connected with
agriculture, thev would control the whole field,
and be able to 6weep away the glaring errors
which are now so prevalent. We could then
commence with schools in all directions; quack
ury and ignorance would decrease, and a great
and rapid advauoc would be visible in every
Let us, then, while we are agitating the sub
ject of instruction, not forget to urge upon our
young men of ability, the advantages of fitting
themselves as instructors; there cannot be too
many of them for years to come, and they,
therefore, need not fear that the profession will
JOHN P. NORTON.
DEMOCRACY OF SCIENCE
BY JOSIAH nOI-EROOt,
Consolidation and diffusion are two opera
tions distinct and opposite.- Both are witnessed
in wealth, government, religion, knowledge, and
nearly every thing human. However applied,
the one is despotic and the other democratic.
The nature of man and the progress of society
tend to consolidation at the expense of diffu
sion and put checks upon consolidation; and
that, too, as connected with all the leading in
terests of human beings.
Democracy of science is the subject now un
der view. The true democracy of science is "to
increase and diffuse knowledge anions men"
the design of Smithson. This is also not only
a great but the great object of national md
State policy not to consolidate but diffuse
knowledge: and knowledge interesting to all, es
pecially farmers and mechanics, as they consti
tute more than seven-eighths of all civilized
The development and the application of the
natural resources of our country stand first and
foremost in furnisbins that kind of knowledge
interesting to all. It shows possessions and the
modes of useing them strictly the "use of tal
ents." Bui with developments and application
there may be diffusion; there may also be con
solidation. It is one. thing to have our mineral
resources developed, and a knowledge of them
so diffused that every farmer may knew the
character and capabilities of his own fields.
It is quite another thing to have our country
subjected to scientific explorations, however full
and complete, and tie-results placed in ponder
ous volumes, and those confined to the shelves
of college and State libraries, to be little read
and less understood. The one diffusion, the other
conso'i latior. The one is carrying out the pur
poses of scientific explorations, and applying
the knowledge obtained by them for the benefit
of those who need it, and those who paid for it;
the other is evidently a perversion of funds des
ignated for diffusive knowledge, wealth, morals,
and power, to personal pride and individual ag
grandisement. The one tends to democracy, the
other to despotism.
As the spirit of the age is the democracy of
science the diffusion, not the consolidation of
knowledge an attempt will be made to point
outseveral subjects of science, with such plans
and modes of promoting them as will tend to
bring knowledge to every man'e door, and to
give it free access to every farmer's son and ev
ery mechanic's daughter. As the schools of our
country constitute, or ought to constitute, not a
"national university," but a "university of the
nation," special endeavors will be made to pre
sent such subjects, plans, and modes, cs will aid
in training the young beings composing them,
on the track of "practical science, productive
industry, and christiau morals."
DEMOCRACY OF SCIENCE, NO. 2.
RT JOSIAH H0LBR00K.
The elements of science are purely demo
cratic. They are in all places at all times, and
obedient to their, own laws, never ewervin"- an
iota. Each renders aid to all the rest together
making a perfect and glorious whole.
One of these elements constitutes about half
of our glebe the animal, vegetable, and miner
al kingdoms. This most abundant element is
also the most powerful agent in the workings of
science. It is in all; and for all created tilings,
or nearly so. It hears our lungs; lights and
fans our fires; decks our forests and ail creation
with their beautiful hues; shivers mountains in
to rocks, and crumbles rocks into soils; converts
soils into the majesty of a forest, the verdure of
a plain, the richness of a garden: changes the
products of forests, plains, and gardens into
beasts of the field, birds of the air, fishes of
the sea, buzzing insects, and all creeping things;
with the whole of animate nature, embracing
the lords of this lower creation, having domin
ion over the whole.
The same elements and agent in our vast cre
ation assimilates things the most diverse and
opposite, and again separates into atoms things
assimilated by the most intimate and perfect
union. It is constantly performing services the
most dissimilar and opposite in character, and
yet always in perfect harmony, conilelely car
rying out the great designs of the Creator of
all. In most of the wonder-workings of this
wonderful world, this one agent is always pres
ent, and always active, but can only act with
and for all kindred agents, however cliverscd
their offices or dissimilar their work. It yields
.strict obedience to its own laws, and yet is de
pendent upon the same obedience from all the
rest, in their respective agencies, for r.cconi
plishing the grand work of their created uni
verse. If such i.; the abundance of one element
and such the power of one agent, and both one
and the same, who can doubt but the knowledge
of it shonld be as widespread as its existence or
How strange, then, how mysterious, that those
professing to mould pliable young beings by the
clement of science, so wisely designed for them,
by the Author both 6f these being and the sci
ence, should have them in charge, month after
month and year after year, and not once exhib
it to them the most abundant element, or even
name oue office of this most powerful agent!
The mistery is more mysterious when it is known
as every one must know, by the avidity with
which every young spirit drinks in such knowl
edge, that the highest possible delight is added
to the richest and most enduring instruction, by
a supply to their bodies, minds, and souls, of
food so evidently and so abundantly provided
But thanks to science and humanity that
a mighty change 13 coming over our country
and the world in the kind of knowledge taught,
and the modes of teaching it. Instruction is iu
a rapid transition from words to things, from
shadow to substance; from saying to doing;
from speculation to production; from consolida
tion to diffusion; from a few to the whole.

presented above, is deferred to a future occasion,

A Couxtt AcRicrLTtRAL Society. That
Franklin county should be without an efficient
Agricultural Society, is the subject of remark
at home and abroad. For intelligence, fertility
of soil and resources, it is second to few coun
ties,in the Stale; and yet it is behind most of
them in attention to Agricultural Science. On
one side of us there has been a flourishing Agri
cultural Society in Cumberland county, for some
years; and 'vith decided advantages to the im
provement of Agriculture; and in adjoining
county of Washington, Md, there has been for
some time an Agricultural Society that is suc
cessful, and had during the last month, at Ha
gcrstown, an exhibition of stock, farming im
plements, and other artic!es,that was interesting,
useful aud creditable to the citizens of that
The advantages of such Societies have been
attested by experience, where they have had at
tention in New York, New Jersey,and the East
ern part of this State. Some' of the sterile
counties of New Jersey, within a few years, thox
the aid of Agricultural science in the applica
tion of suitable manures, iu ascertaining the
deficiency of soils and supplying them with
what was wanting, as well as in the experiments
of deep and sub-soil plowing, have "improved
their condition so much as to be now amongst
the most productive counties of that State.
The Farmers of Franklin must not rely on
the natural fertility of soil. The best soils will
become exhausted by continued cultivation, and
removing the product without a suitable return
to the soil, in the form of green crops, stable
manu:e,compost or other applianccs,nccessary to
the product of abundant crops of grain or grass.
The advantages developed by time and experi
ence in different communities are made known
and tested through the instrumentality of Agri
There arc in this county some superior Horn
ed Cattle of English breed, which have, I be
lieve, been improved by crossings with our na
tive stock. Young Horses for the draft wc have
not surpassed by any in the State or out of it.
In the extensive use of the most improved Ag
ricultural Implements, we are yet deficient and
behind the Farmers of other districts. One of
the great advantages of an Agricultural Society
and its fair or exhibition, is to bring cultivators
together, with their facts and experience for
dissemination, to their advantage aud that of
others, an opportunity is given to see the most
esteemed stock of all kinds, to witness the use
and trial of Improved Agricultural Implements.
Many now know that Science as applied to
Agriculture, is understandable with ordinary
education, and does not require advantage; of
mental culture to appreciate its discoveries and
As the public mind is now relieved from the
excitement attendant upon a Presidential Elec
tion, we would invite the attention of Farmers
and all othcr3 friendly to Agricultural improve
ments in Franklin country to the formation of an
Amcultural Society for the county. If the
project meets with approbation, and is maintain
ed with spirit, its utility and advantages will be
obvious and marked in this our day, but also
with the generations that shall follow cs in the
course of time.

I WISH to employ a number of agents to sell J. S.
Bonham's "Improved Garment Cutter" in all the
States except Georgia and N. Carolina, and I ah of
fering great inducements both by tho sale of the
copy-right of counties and States, and by agency.
The tiuiplieity of the system is such that it can be
learned in a time surprisingly short; 12 scholars may
be learned in 4 days. I furnish each learner with a
compete ;-t nf Patterns and book of directions for
cnttvng Coat?, Pants, and Veils of the different styles
and sizes. Persons can fe;t the use of these p?ttcrn3
from the book of directions without oral itructions
by a few days application. I could refer to several
who have sent for them by mail, and are now
cutting garments. tHeeenxulg. This system is now
being taught in this State, Kentucky, Alabama,
Georgia, and North Carolina, and is gaining a popu
larity not equaled by any other system in use. The
ladies (for whose benefit thisrulo is published.) have
given it a liberal patronage.- Feeling thankful for
past favors we would respectfully, solicit more ex
Hear from those who have learned my system of

Improved Garment Cutter, do hereby certify, that
from our own knowledge and the information obtain

correctness, simplicity and convenience, we believe
it is not equaled by any other system extant, but is
decidedly superior to any other with which we have
become acquainted; ami as a safe Garment Cutter in
the hands of the judicious learner or practical Gar

patronage of an intelligent and an improvement go
ing community. In witness whereof are our names

of the passions, by excess of self-abuse, the evils are
numerous. Premaruro irapotency, involuntary sem
inal discharges, wasting of the organs, loss of mem
ory, a distast for female society, general debility, or
constitutionrl derangement, are sure to follow. If
necessary, consult the Doctor with confidence; he
offers a perfect cure.
READ AND REFLECT. Tho afflicted would do
well to reflect before trusting thoir health, happiness,
and in many cases their lives, in the hands of phsyi
cians ignorant of this class of maladies. It is certriu
ly impossible for one man to nndersand all the ills the
human family are subject to. Every respetable phy

successful than his brother professors, and to that ha
devotes most of his time and study.
