I have found thia Strap decidedly fuperrour to any that 1 have uled. A Razor which wa* in indif ferent older, it brought immediately to a delicate edge, which it preferve* by a little judiciqu* use of the Stiap. I Ihould think, from the trial I have made, that thia Strap, would, in a great measure, if not entirely, lupercede, the necessity of honing. From the disclosure made to me of the substance employed in preparing the Strap, it it obvious that it could not have been better choL en ; and I have never heard of it* being applied for tbit purpoie before.

T*HE publication of the fol * lowing Report ha* been accidentally delay ed to tbi* late period. The Committee on Agricultural Ex periments and Improoements have attended to the du ty assigned them, and fAmit the following Re portj They have awarded to Payson Wialaxu, Esq, of Fitchburg, for the greatest quantitv of Potatoea railed on an acre of land, being 614 bulhcl*, $6:00. It will be recollefted that Mr. William* obtain ed a premium the last season for an inferiour crop, (the quantity then being only 580 bulhela on an acre;) on which occasion, however, the Committee remaiked, ” that the quantity proba bly exceeded any which a premium had been obtained within thia Commonwealth.” The present season ba* certainly not been 1 fa vourable one for the cultivation of potatoea; md the Committee are persuaded that Mir. William* ia indebted for bi* success, not only to a produftive foil, but to a highly judteioua mode of culture. The whole expense of rsifing and barvetting the 614 bulhela, including ST load* of manure, sod , the value of the leed, iaettimated by Mr. Willian* | at SB7 : 00, or something lef* than 15 cents per ■ bulhel. The Committee indulge the hope that tie I repeated success of Mr. Williams will induce | miny of the farmer* of this County to adopt the i improved method of culture by which that fuc , cef* has been obtained. The Committee have not thought it expedient to award any premium for the greatest quantity of Wheat; aa, owing to the unfavourablenefs of the last season, or to the want of competition, the ; quantity for which a premium i* claimed -it only 19 bulhela. There were Gve famplea of Potatoes railed from feed-ball* exhibited : one from Nathan Perry, of Worcester ; one from Uriel Jobnfon, of Worcef. ter; one from Oliver Wilion, of Leicester; and two from Jolhua Richardton, of Templeton.
