They should especially (rain iip all under their care in the principles ofjpeace, and pray often and fervently for its universal prevalence. , Let them , a 11 do merely these ttco things ; and the wars of Christendom, if not of the whole world, would soon come to an end. ... 7.

AGRICULTURAL. size: of farms. i We made eome remarks a few months since, relative to the proper size of farms, endeavoring to show that the greatest profit is derived from farms of considera ble size, or where a division of labor could be adopted. It is our object at this time to show that farmers generally, by cul-r tivaling too much land, actually lessen their psofiti by losing the advantages of a division of labor; while, if they should cultivate a smaller quantity in a proper; manner, they would in reality arrive at those advantages much more readily. .To make' money by farmincr requires, Jirstt as great an amount of product from crops as possible; secondly, that this be produced by as little expense or labor as possible; and thirdly, that as little capital as possible be invested. To arrive at all of these points together, it is necessary to raise large crops, to effect a division of labor, and use labor-saving implements and machines, and to till no more land than can be done, to the best advantage. That this is to be effected by a course dif ferent from that generally pursued, only requires an exhibition of facts to prove. It will perhaps be generally admitted, that much larger crops than are usually raised, may he obtained by taking the necessary pains. If the expense o? rais ing the same quantity on a small piece of ground is no greater than raising it on a large piece, the farm would of course be the more profitable, for it would require less capital in land ; but if it is in reality found to be less expensive, then it becomes doubly profitable. The question arises, what are the relative expenses and profits of the two methods, and if the practice of raising large crops is Lund to be most profitable, what is the amount of produce which we may reasonably expect from a given quantity of land. The best way to determine these points is to look at what has already been done, to examine the ex periments which have been made in this kind of farming. Numerous trials have proved, that at least' one hundred bushels of corn may be expected from an acre with proper cul ture ; Eajl StifQson's erop averaged this quantity for ten successive years; and much laTger crops have often been obtain ed. By the experiments of Gen. Bamum, he is confidently of opinion, that by the method he employed in cultivating the potatoe, frem 800 to 1200 bushels to the acre may be reasonably expected. Satis factory evidence, exists that five tons of hay per acre have been obtained ; and no less than three, tons should be calculated unon when a Drober svstem of farmine- is adopted. Repeated experiments with ruta baga-have shown that with good culture from 500 to 800 bushels may be obtained with certainty ; and frOm the statements of others, as well as from our own obser vations, we are convinced that from 1200 to 1500 bushels of mangel wurtzel may be produced with equal certainty. Now, if corn is worth seventy-five cents per bush els potatoes twenty-rive cents, hay eight dollars a ton, ruta baga twelve and a half cents a bushel foT feeding stock, and two and a' half tons of mangel, wurtzel worth on an average one ton of hay, as has been found by experiment; then the product of twenty acres may beconsidered as follows : 5 acres of corn500 bushels, $375 00 8 acres of hay, 2i tons, 192 00 1. acre of potatoes, 1,000 bush.,. 250 00 3 acres ot ruta baga, 1,00 bush., 225 00 3 acres ot mangel wurtzel, 4,000 bushels, 40 bushels to a ton, 100 tons," 320 00 81,362 00 , The expenses of-cultivating the land arid securing the eropsjMndging from, the r - -i - - , w - . experiments abov i . . rn aifij; to, would be bdoui as iouows ; iJ2 5 aeries of corn, 20 per acrc,-J 100 00 l.acre" ofpotatoes, , ; . ; 50:00 Z cres of rota baga j $29 per acre,- 00 00 v 3 acres of mangel wurtzel, do , 60 00 : . 8 acres ofhay, cut and eared ac-w - cord ing to the best , mode ; we ; ; ' . have seen, and described here- 00 oo -Add to this fh TinterestIon I the. landV aupposingythej-original price. to have beea 650 an, acre, and -that 030 an acre, hare been expende4t in- drarninr, manurirjp-. taqd bringjng-itoitapresent fertile-state makmg .ttan acre, the interest on, which would be 05 60, or 8112 00the sum will 1bfr 0303 total.-expense ; 1 deductiofg ihis from 012G2, f r 1 the remainder Js C96t t cnty acres of land,. ' It is to be o"bscryed that we hard by no means taken the largest crop as a guide to thB calculation, but have endeavored to obtain a mediuraof what may be reason ably expectedi and- in some cases have putthe amount "even" below this. And it is to be observed that nearly one half is occupied with meadow, which yields on ly $167 nett profit. ' It will not need much penetration tq perceive that the profits by this mode of farming, are many times greater than by the common method. If-farmers would adopt the plan of raising as hrrge crops as possible, which could be best effected by combining, pro perly, draining, liming and manuring, and ploughing' in your crops, and by never omitting a judicious system of rotation, we are confident that profit as great, on an average, as the above, and in some in stances much larger, may be obtained, where as good a soil is to be had as is found in western New-York. Now although, as befoTe stated, large farms have decided advantages over small ones, yet it will be perceived that all the advantages of extensive farming may be derived from those of moderate size, in a far greater degree than is usually done from farms of five time3 their extent. Genesee Farmer. Progres ot Silk Manufacture in the 1T. S. Silk was raised and manufactured in Connecticut seventy years since ; but for many years the spinning was done on the common hand wheel, and the reeling on a reel, both to great disadvantage. The first regular power machinery used in that State for the manufacture of silk, was con structed in Mansfield, in 1829, under the immediate suDerintendenoe of Mr F.H- mund Golding, who came over that year, and brought the patterns with him from Manchester, England, where he had worked at the silk businessfrorn his earli est childhood. In the same year, (1829) similar machinery was put up in Ded? ham, by J. H.Cobb, Esq. and since that time the two establishments of Mr. Cobb and Mr. Gelding have probably turned out a quantity of silk goods, largei in amount than all the rest ever manufac tured in the U. States. These mills were kept running until about a year since, when the original proprietors sold the whole of their machinery to the New England Silk Company took shares in the stock, and both n re now officers of that Corporation Mr. Cobb as General Su perintendent, and Mr Golding as Manufac turing Agent. The New England Company's Mill, just erected here, is the largest silk mill in America. The machinery, withwhich it is fast filling up, is of the most opproved models, and made in the most thorough and workman-like manner. It is chiefly made here, under the superintendance of Messrs Golding and Cobb, but the spin ning frames are built at Mansfield, by Mr. Nathan Rixford, an ingenious machinist, who assisted Mr. Golding in constructing the first silk machinery which he erected in lhat town, and thereby became acquain ted with the business. The mill is furnished with a first rate steam engine of seven horse power, built by Mr Hinckley, of Boston. The power has been applied to the machinery this week, and is found to work admirably well. The mill will be in regular opera tion in a week or two. The number of hands employed will be small at first, but will be gradually increased as additions are made to the machinery. Mr. John Golding will act as overseer of the spin ning room, and Mr. Samuel Edgerly as overseer of the winding room. By a gentleman who has lately visited the several s;lk establishments at Hartford, Northampton, New Bedford, Nantucket and Poughkeepsie, N. Y., we are infor med that the works of the Dedham estab lishment, besides being more extensive and superior in every respect, are also in a state of greater forwardness at the pres ent time than any of the silk works above mentioned. The work of making and fit ting the machinery proceeds slowly in all the mills ; and the reason is said to be because so few in this country have any practical knowledge of the business of manufacturing silk or constructing silk machinery. Dedham Advertiser. MISCELLANEOUS. From the Philanthropist. TIMIDITY IS CHURCHES. One would be led to think from ob serving the conduct of a majority of the northern churches in relation to Slavery that timidity is an essential element in Christian character. Exalted as may be their tone against other vices, when slavery is named they -are speechless There are churches in this city,. whose members would be shocked to heaT their pastors pray,ng publicly for the slaves He may pray for the extinction of idola try, the perfect triumph of temperance the advent of universal peace but he dare not mention slavery. He may pray for the Hottentot and Hindod ; for those that go down to the sea in ships ; for all that are in authority legislators aif w0J ,ors r he may mpass the earth,. seekin supjects oi prayer ; Out be dare not breathe the name of the slave he dare not send to heaven a single petition for more than two. millions of his feilbw-conhtryrneh who are among the most fghdrant, del graded, destitute, wjetched, and oppressed of all-God's creatures. Has liberty be come valueless in the eye of the church ? Has he agreed to embrace slavery isr a IHvine Institution 1 Has' she bowely of compassion for the slave? -Shall the heart pf infidelity : yearn over fcis uflenrigs, while at Christian altars; : his wrongs are unrememberedt IhWelitvS r wfth li ?t,' wretchedness, haa- scarcely - Ver stooped t saiow;tAa to advocate system of hrVri,d degradation. Can so much be said for American Christianity ? Whom do we find among1 the champions; of slavery ? Professed disciples of Christ. Who are they who have taught'that slavery is from God?' Christian teachers. Who are thev. tbat Have so little hatredf for slavery. or so little sympathy with the oppressed, or so much regard to 'public prejudice, as to abstain from all public prayer that our country's curse may be taken away and the light of liberty break in upon every weeping captive? Northern Christians. We know some pastors, who are much inclined to do their duty on this point For their encouragement we copy the following: . . "Rev. Timothy Stow, pastor of the Jrresbytenan church Montrose, Penn- syivania, recoras m m he Emancipator his j fleet of a pastor's experience ot tne e preaenmg ms sentiments luuy on slavery. " Some feared, when I came out" in the pulpit on the subject of slavery, that it would drive the church and congregation , , .. f ii i - - i away from me. But my congregation has never been larger, and, so far as I j know, my people were never more attach ed to their pastor. None oCthe fears of my friends have been realized and Gocl has shown me that Christian faithfulness on this subject shall not lose its reward. I wish you to consider me, sir, as enlist ed in" this cause till death; and I will en deavor to prepare my children, after my departure, to advocate more ably than I can, the cause of the oppressed. My sympathies, my prayers, my eflbrts are with you. In so holy a cause I pray God we may be preserved from a bad spirit. We have too much truth and righteousness on our side to seek the aid of the unkind and malignant passions. Nor do we need the aid' 6f coarse and bitter language. Truth, warmly. benevo lently, strongly expressed, is, under God, the weapon that we need." From the New-York Spectator. STATE PRISON REPORT. We are indebted to the editor of the Daily Albany Argus for a copy of the report of the inspectors of the state prison at Sing Sing, from which we hve made the following summary : The total receipts for the year ending Sept. 30, 1836, amount to 863,018 31 The expenditures for the same period for the general support of the prison, were 55,345 90 7,672 41 In addition to this sum, $7,556 40 have been expended for transportation of con victs, building materials, and the support of the female prisoners now confined in Bellevue. This sum deducted from the above balance, leaves the nett surplus for the year, $1 16 01, which being added to the cash on hand, Sept. 30, 1835, makes the balance in the agent's hands on the 30th Sept. last, 827,404 55. There has been furnished for the State, during the year, marble valued at 815, 207 80, to be employed in the erec tion of the state house at Albany. Labor to the amount of $7, 150 has been expended toward the erection of a prison for the confinement of female convicts. These two sums added to the balance (81 16 01.) show the excess of the earn ings of the convicts over the total expen ditures for the year, to be 822,473 81. The state is indebted 825,223 80 to the prison, for marble. This is to be con sidered as available funds for the, support ot the institution, should its necessities re quire it. The decrease in the number of the prisoners has been seventeen. The prison now contains 10&0 solitary cells, all in excellent condition. The female convicts are 32 in number, Thev are in confinemetat Bellevue j and by law, must there remain until the com pletion of the new building now erecting lor their reception at Mount Pleasant. On this fifty men have been employed du ring the past year, and it is expected that the work will be completed before the next annual report shall have been made. The persons employed about the prison are, one agent, one clerk, one deputy keeper, twenty-one assistant keepers, and a guard of twenty-five men. One of the most interesting narprs ac companying this document, is the chap lain's report. From this we learn that divine service is performed every Sun day morning, and that no congregation could be more attentive in listening to public instruction, than these deluded men It is also stated that at least one hundred of therisoners are unable to read.

' . Discour age not. Beware of break ing the spirit of your child. Desperation never achieved any grand purpose, except an occasional deliverance from pressing emergency. But a broken -spiritedan never laid and executed a plsn of any diffi culty, and requiring patience and perse verance. God in subduing the rebellious to his gracious government, has formed no part of his plan on the principle of vanquish ing by intimidation, or of winning by des troying all mental elasticity. Off the con traiy, the flow of soul and the vigor of thought are as remarkable in regeneration as perhaps any. thing else. The oil of gladness covers the whole person and garment of nim who becomes the Lord's freeman. Of such value did the inspired apostle consider the natural, sprightliness and rebounding of the young mmd, .-'that he left these solemn words Fathers, provoke not your children to anger; est they be discouraged." Dodridge's para phrase of the verse is "And .fathers, see to it that you do not so abuse thesupe riority of the relation, as, by a perverse and excessively severe conduct, to pro voke your children to wrath, lest they be discouraged from attempting to please you" when it shall seem to be aW inrpossible? task; and be rendered unfit to pass through the world with ad nntage, when their spirits have been so unreasonably broken under an oppressive yoke in the earliest years of life." - .
