PROSPECTUS OP THE
The subscriber proposes to publish in
the town of Bath, Beaufort county, N.
C, a monthly paper under the above
name. Thi3 paper will be devoted ex
clusively to the setting forth of the vari
ous popular improvements in Agricul
ture, Horticulture and the household
arts. That there is a demand for such a
paper in our State, and more especially
in the eastern part, no one will deny.
As evidence of the good effects of such
papers wq have only to look at the rapid
strides which have been made in farming
in those States of our Union where they
exist. But this great advancement
made in the science of Agriculture in
other States, is but little known to the
farmers of North Carolina. There are
several scientific as well as practical
farmers among us; but for the want of a
medium through which to communicate
their agricultural knowledge, it is still
confined to a small compass. Our good
old State is far behind the ase in asri-
cultural as well as every other improve
ment; as a people we are greatly want
ing in State pride, which is highly im
portant to place us in that position which
we ouffht to occupy. In New York,
Maryland, Georgia and several other
States annual Fairs are held for exhibit
ing the products of each, which clearly
have a tendency to great improvement.
Nature has thrown no impediment in
the way to prevent our agricultural ad
vancement; but she has lavishly heaped
upon us her inestimable gifts. We have
among us a sufficiency of both organic
and inorganic matter to enrich every a-
cre of our worn-out land, and our soil
and climate cannot be surpassed in a
daptation to the production of the va
All that is now needed to elevate our
State to the position which she should
occupy among her sisters, is energy and
enterprise on the part of her citizens.
There must be a stop put to this great
tide of imigration from our State; for
daily many of our most talented and en
ergetic young men seek a new home in
the West; they say that they cannot got
their consent to remain among a people
possessed of so little enterprise as we are.
The subscriber has not been engaged
in farming many years; but he feels jus
tified in saying that he began upon the
right plan, that of deep plowing, heavy
manuring, and thorough draining. He
ha visited some good farms in our State
MW.-dlasin oth-ra. nnrnlv for iil-
tural instruction; and for some time past
he has been engaged in useful agricul-

lit; hopes that by showing sitch a de
termination to do something for the
present degraded condition of the farmer,

ronage from a generous public.
As soon as two thousand subscribers
are obtained to the Journal, it will be is
sued forthwith ; it will be of the Usual
size of such publications, and consist of
thirty pages of closely printed matter.
Each number will contain one or more
articles from the pen of the Editor, and
several communications from our best

by the Editor applicable to our climate

The advancement of farming
should excite an interest in tne oreast oi
