■grange lecture. (Continued from first page.) The attention of students, whether private or in attend ance at. college, should be specially directed to that por Gon he expects to apply to the greatest extend, while no branch should be neglected. If he is to engage m rearing stock, he will not he called npon to know what will be required of the cultivator of the soil. There ismuch truth in what an ancient philoso pher said, when asked what should he taught to boys, “replied, teach them that which they are to practice when men.” There .vas a time when ag riculture received but. little attention as a scientific pur suit, but a new era basduwn ed, and no agency lias opera ted to bring about a change to the same extent as the or der to which we belong.— While wo say this, we must admit that in many portions of the world the virgin soil bad become exhausted of its constituent elements necessa ry to make its cultivation profitable, or even remunera tive enough to sustain life with an average amount, of labor, and we have been coin polled to call to our aid, sci ence and art to assist us in * our efforts at recuperation.— AVith their aid, lands have ad vanced from 100 to 1000 per cent in favored localities that would have been barren wasfe nud would have failed to p •<> tiueo enough to even support the insect life geneiat.ed in its bosom, much less the higher order of animated na ture. Many <d the Slates of our Union have made liberal up appropriations for tlie endow ment of agrieull ural schools and colleges, and the general Government has mad1 the same, as well as to establish a bureau ofagriculttire,which we may accept as a fact not so much to encourage agri cultural pursuits. as an evi dence of its high position being recognized, and its im portance being appreciated by those who should have given it their fostering care many years since. The countries of Europe are moving in the same di _rectum, with renewed energy and we may reasonably ex pect that facilities for obtain ing information of value to those who feed the world, will ere long be within the reach of all; whether high or low, rich or poor; and t ie in stitutions established for this purpose will place theirstan dard as high as that of any other for the dissemination of useful knowledge. lucre is a constant and rapidly giowing demand for sciont i (ic know 1 edge tli: o ugli out the world,and to no class is this of more importance or of more endearing benefit than to the agriculturist, who compose so large a class of people in all countries, and who arc doing moroto encour age scientific investigation than any other portion of our! race, simply because they know their success depends upon its acquirement, and al so upon its application. This class not only pay the larger portion ot the revenue of government, bat they tarn ish the larger number of t hose who defend the government in time of trouble, as well as to sustain it in time of peace, and the better informed they can be, the better able they are not only to perform such duties, but the mo/e compe tent they will prove to be to fill the varied offices of gov ernment to which *hey aie called by the suffrages of their fellow citizens. Some of the first minds of the world have been and are yet employed in agricultural pursuits, and it will ever be so; drawn to ward that occupation not so much because of its profits, as because of its being the most pleasant and most healt h ful ofall the interests that require the attention of the human family. i When a deputation ot the Roman Senate called upon Cincinuatus and acquainted him with the desire of -that body that he should occupy the position of “Dictator,” he was found holding the plow and attired as a hus bandman. It is recorded he appeared but little elevated by the addresses of ceremony and pompous habits they brought him, but seemed lather concerned that his aid —■ —— ..i nrwbawM should he wanted, as he pre ferred tlie charms of country life to the fatiguing splendor of office. Ho is said to have remarked to his wife, as he permitted the deputation to lead him away, “I fear, my At)ilia, that for this year our little fields most remain un sown.’’ After having restored tranquility, where confusion had prevailed,!))' tiic wisdom of his course, he again re turned to tlie peaceful pleas ures of his little farm. A second time Home found that Cincinnutus was the only per son on whom the whole de pendence of the people could he placed, and he was again found laboring in his field, rims the salvation of a great nation devolved upon a hus bandman taken from the plow. This noble ltmnan was a man with educated hand, head and heart, and conse quently nor only fitted to pro perly till, hut to adorn any station in life lie might he elevated to, and to reflect credit upon those who in vested him with the highest honor they were capable of bestowing. Our own immor tal Washington, “whom the Almighty made childless that a nation might call him fatli *(!r,” was a farmer, and never during the revolution that achieved the independence of this, our country, and during a time that kept him from home, did lie virtually cease his attention to that oonpa tiou he preferred to all oth ers, and received weekly re ports concerning the opera tions at Mount Vernon— having plats of its several fields which enabled him to understand what was going on. Thus agriculture and the interests of his country were mingled in the mind of that great and good man, that pure patriot and Christian— the man who believed in an overruling Providence and in thejusfice of the great cause in which he was engaged, while occupied in the peace ful pursuits 'if agriculture, embarked his all in the in terest of his country, and on his knees at Valley Forge prayed to “the giver of all good’’ in behalf of the lundof Ins birth and for the welfare of his barefooted and almost j naked and starving soldiers. He, as well as Cineinnitus, had an educated hand, an educated hlaul, and an edu cated heart. As early aslTTC, \\ ashington experimented at -Mount Vernon; .John Adams on his farm at Quincy; Thus. .Jefferson at Montieeilo, and none of them, even during the cares of business and res ponsibilities of high station, ever neglected their firming interests. It is said that Mr. .Jefferson exercised his me chanical tastes in improving the mouldboard of plows, which he afterwards adapted to an improved nlow sent him by the agricultural so ciety of the department of the Seme, in France. Thus it is shown that from (he farmers of (he land, at le.a>t three of those who were called to preside over the des tinies of this great country were selected. Their educa tion, their habits and their I calling eminently fitted them for this high station. We are satisfied that Jefferson, be cause of his peaceful occupa tion, was better titled to be the author of the “Declara tion of Independence” than he would have been if his mind had been of that char acter and his disposition such as to have caused him in early life to adopt toe pro fession of a soldier, or any avocation that would have caused him to be less chari table toward the erring, or less forgiving to those who would enslave and keep in subjugation a people who were determined tobefreeand independent. At a later day we find that Calhoun was a farmer, and John Randolph, of Roanoke. The mighty Webster,the farmer of Marsh field, while expounding the “constitutio 1 of his country” and holding a Senate of mighty minds spell bound by the power of bis intellect, never neglected bis farming interests while laboring for the welfare of his conntiy— the man whose heart was largeenough and pure enough to cause him to speak for the wlnle country and to know no north, no south, no east, no west. The sage of Ash land, Henry Clay, who de voted liis life to the service of his country, was a farmer; I . •'» ’rvv-'v.^ \ tf a—tfa—1B1 the man who by his compro mise measures of 1850, when the best interests of bis coun try bang as it were upon the brink of a political chasm, quieted the unnatural pulsa tions of the great, political heart,and restored confidence and equilibrium to his native land. Others might be add ed to this list, but why name any ? Are we not well satis fied that agricultural pur suits not (inly require intelli gence of the highest order, but that, an employment in i‘s quiet and soothing occu pation is calculated to enlarge the understanding, to enno ble the thoughts and feelings, and to purify the heart. Dr. .Jarvis in an article on tlie value of common school education, says: “The value that is created and added to matter by labor is in ratio of the skill of the worker, or the appropriateness of his ex ertions and the rapidity with which they are made. The degree of these is in propor tion to the mental co-opera tion with tlie movements of the hands. When the mind is torpid the hand works aloneand for want of a watch ful guide it moves in an un certain u aimer and with doubtful effect, hut in as far as it is quickened by educa tion, the perceptive faculties are sharpened,v tlie reflectivo faculties strengthened, and the movements of the hands are directed to their purpose. They strike in proper direc tion and with appropriate momentum. All tlie force is expended to advantage.— None of the blows are lost. Each one produces changes that add to tlie value of the material operated upon.” Education,then, is the eco nomy of force and gives it a greater power to create val ues. It enables the intelli gent and skillful to add more to the worth of matter than the ignorant. The cost of educating a laborer,of setting him to think and fitting him to expend his forces to ad vantage, is very small. The few years of youth, when the body is comparatively aeak, the expenseof teachers,books, Arc , are but small sacrifices compared with ilie gain. Tlie return in increased produc tive power is grjat and per manent. It is the difference betweentheskilifuland quick ly moving and tlie" unskillful and slow workman; between the large and certain and the comparatively small and un certain producer. Of the in fluence exerted hy an extend ed and widely disseminated system of education among the masses, on the national income of our country, and consequently upon our wealth as a nation. I have not time to speak, nor do I wish to weary you by extending this lecture any further than to supply to you anything more than simply a text, that I feel will not he “sown on stony ground,” and that I hope may not be choked by the tares of indifference, but w hile on the subject of na tional greatness will add what was Said by the late Earl of Carlisle, w hom you know to have been a person of great acuteness of obser vation and of generous im pulses, w ho traveled through many of the States of the Union a few years ago. It is said ho took great pains to inquire into tlie domestic aad social condition of the peo ple, their education, their habits, and manner of work ing and living. After all his experience and study here lie said to a friend, “If every man and woman in your country were educated as are the natives of Massachusetts, there is no teKing the power and the wealth of your na tion.” The cultivator of the soil knows when he places the seed in the ground, that he will reap, foi the creator of heaven and earth has said, “day and night, summer and winter, seed time and har vest shall not cease.” His head and heart must become better educated by his reflec tions concerning the works of Gok, when he deposits in the earth even a mustard seed which he knows contains all the elements necessary to cause it to germinate and to become a plant so large that the birds of the air may rest upon it. His reflecting mind will see “sermons in stones—ser mons in flowers—and in the pebbles of the brook”, as well u.i. ;.niTitn ,i m .U as in the manifestations of Divine pov eras made known by the progress of Ids grow ing crops, and tho develop ment of all that occupies his time and attention. While he furnishes that which establishes cities and keeps them in successful op eration, he is far removed | from their trials, tribulations and disappointments, quiet ly depositing seeds, and reap ing the reward ot an iudus i try directed by intelligence, jand a faith in the God of 11a ; ture—while the busy mer j chant, and the man of coin I meree place their reliance | more exclusively upon their I own judgement and the pro j mises of others,and are vexed i with theearesof business,ami j have, in too many instances, a naturally amiable disposi tion destroyed by contact with an a varicious and grasp ing comm unity. it would be pleasant to trace from the beginning,the action of our State governments and of our common country In ef forts to disseminate agrionf turaf information, but find that too much time would be consumed in doing so in the course of one lecture, and must reserve that interesting branch of the subject for an other occasion. Let us be satisfied that the! pursuit we advocate, and which we know to he t he base j upon which the success of all others are dependent, is the noblest employment that can occupy our time and energy. Let us follow it as a labor of love, and while we know its importance, be content with its remuneration, and not be come fascinated by the glit-j teiing promises presented by those branches of business j that would lead us to believe j wealth may be acquired in a few short years, as wealth can not insure either a life of usefulness or happiness. Let us endeavor to utilize 1 the information we have, and j to increase it, and byexperi uient and experience enlarge lit as we may,,always feeling that by so doing we are ac complishing more than those who deal in stocks‘on change,* inaugurate great financial schemes, and conduct nrxds, which prove so destructive to the social, moral, and pecuni ary interest of so large a por tion of our race. Let us, like Cincinnatus, and others, if called upon by the will of the people to assume other dnlies, acknowledge and accept such honors as may be conferred, yet cling to the field,the forest land the grove ns the places where we may find the purest enjoy meat, in, the companion ship of wife and children,w ho have in the bloom of health and robust constitutions, that greatest of blessings— good | health—which a pure atmos phere, freedom from annoy ance, and an hones* endeavor to do our duty will generally ; insure; and never to covet the | life of the city, with its fash ! ion, its dissipation, and its | disappointments. -Let us so educate our clrl dren that they will grow up with a proper appreciation of the beauties of nature,the im portance of agriculture, and with a just and correct idea of the dignity and honorable position of labor; and while we keep our army increasing in number, let. us increase in a corresponding ratio its dis cipline and efficiency, admit ting the words of Goldsmith, that, Princes or Kings m >y flourish or may fade, A breath can make them as a breath has made; But a bold yeomanry,a country’s pride, When once destroyed can never be, supplied. Let every farmer read the advertisement in this pi per of “Chufas and Japan Peas.” It one-half that is claimed for these crops by the best authorities be true they are indeed a godsend to the South. 32 £dPT.
