Lei us examine this subject according to the best chemical development. Now the best chemists declare, that the following standard of nutritious mailer, contained in different articles of food, to be correct and such as may be relied upon. The average quantity of nuiriiious matter in all kind of flesh-meat is abjut thirtv-five pounds to one hundred, in one hundred weight of flesh-meal there is about ihirty-hve pounds of nutritions matter. Therefore by devouring one hundred w eight of flesh, vou receive thirty -five pounds of nutritious I food, the rest is all gross and innutritions I matter. Now look at the articles of a vegetable diet, such as rice, wheat, lentiles, peas, beans, &c The average quantity of nutritious matter in these is from eighty to ninety-five per cent. Therefore the reader will see that eilher rice, beans or bread contain nearly three times as much nutritious matter as pork, beef or nny oth kind of flesh-meat. Even potatoes conuin about twenty-five per cei.t. of nutritive matter, so that three pounds of potatoes contain nore nourishment than two pounds of pork. Thus we discover that the om- niverous man wuh proud reliance on the correctness of bis system of living and his derision at a purs vegetable diet, as illy suited to the bard laboring class of com muniiy fjr us innutntious matter, can de rive but about one third the amount cf nutriment from his pork, beef, mutton. venison, &c, that the frugivorous man de rives from his peas, beans, rice, wheat, &c. Even that person who lives on a vegetable die, derives nearly as much nourishment rom potatoes per pound as he who lives upon nis staH m lite,' viz: pork, beet. &c.

It appears to us from sacred and pro fane history, that farinaceous and vegetable fjod constituted the 'staff of life to a larg er part of ihe human family in all the prim itive ages of tbe world ; and at those tunes . d a sat too, whea the fallen bons and daugnters of Adam lived to a good old age.

Our present modes of agriculture exhaust our soil, and must while life is made thus sensual and secular ; the narrow covetousness which prevails in trade, in labor, and ex changes, ends in depraving the land; it breeds disease, decline in the flesh de bauches and consumes the heart. This Beast, named Man, has yet most costly tastes, and must first be transformed into a very man, regenerate in appetite and de sire, before the eanh shall be restored to fruhfulness, and redeemed from the curse of his cupidity. Then shall the toils of the farm become elegant and invigorating leisures; man shall grow his orchards and plant his gardens, an husbandman truly, sowing and reaping in hope, and a partaker of his hope. Labor will be at tractive. L'fi will not be worn in anx ious and indurating toils; it will be at once a scene of mixed leisure, recreation, labor, culture.

Agriculture is the foundation of all hu man arts-the art for which man was maoV, and the peritenon of which is fiis chief happiness and glory ns the lord tem poral of this planet Of this. sublime art, nil other arts and scieqc?s are butstatelitep, their business being to wait on, and adorn ii with their moonshine. Consequentlyr no man more than the agriculturist needs ihe full use of his brains, and a perfect com mand of all the treasures of human expe rience. So the farmers of the United Stairs view the matter ; and in presenting iBern with a translation of the celebrated Miuson Rusiique of ihe French, we have no douli i of iheir hearly support, h is the work of I all works upon practical agriculture the most scientific, char, and comprehensive. France has long excelled in profitable farming-. Tin's is the source of her wealrh, England is rich by coals and commerce. Her agriculture is splendid, but sometimes costs more than it comes to, Thoso who have fortunes to sp end, may buy the vast works of Marshall, Dickson, Arthur Young, Loudon, &c, but those who wish to get a fortune out of the soil, will find the French writers bttter ableto showlhem the way. The excellence of French ele mentary works is well known to all ttach ers.

The present edition for the nineteenth century," has been re written and brought up with the "march of mind," by sixly of the ablisi ' agrono- mes" France. It has all the lisht of the latest improvements, not only- in FraiiCe, but in all Europe. AVil iiam Ccbbelt, one of the most suc cessful farmers both in England and Amer ica, who wrote the best English style and the best French grammar that ever was, valued the Maison Rustique, not only as nn encyclopedia of farming, but as a me t t,s of educating his children. He was his own schoolmaster. In winter evenings his family resolved itself into a school, end he thus speaks of ihe use then made of this work :" Our hook of never failing re source was the French Maison Rustique, or F,,rm House, which, it is said, was ihe book that first tempted Dugnesnois(I think that was his name.) the famous physician in the reign of Louis Xll., to learn to read.
