KmvAitn Evekktt conclud his address, several years ngo, be fore the New York Stutc Agricultural Society, at Builiilo, with tho following masterly portraiture of a perfect farm : Ono more suggestion, my friends, and I relievo your patience. As a work of art. I know few things more pleasing to the eye, or more capable, of affording scope' and gratification to a taste for the beautiful, than a well situated, well cul tivated farm.- Tho man of refinement will hang with nevcr-woariod in.e on a landscape by Claude or Salvator; the price of a section of the most fertile land in the AVest would not purchase a few square) feet of tho canvass on which these great artists have depicted a rural scene. But nature has forms and pro portions beyond the painter's skill ; her divine pencil touches the landscape with living lights and shadows, never mingled on his pallet. What is there on earth which can more entirely charm tho ove or gratify the taste than a noblo farm? ' It stands upon a southern slope, gradually rising with variegated ascent from the plain, sheltered from the northwestern winds by woody heights, In-okcn hero and thero with moss-covered bowlders, which impart variety and strength to the outline. Tho native forest has been cleared from the greater part of the farm, but a suitable portion, carefully tended, remains in wood for economical purposes, and to give pic turesque effect to the landscape. Tho eyes range round three-fourths of the horizon over a fertile expanse bright with the cheerful waters of a rippling stream, a generous river, or a gleaming lake dotted with hamlets, each with hamlets, each with its modest spire and, if tho farm lies in tho vicinity of the coast, a distant glimpse from the high grounds, of the mysterious, ever lasting soa. completes tho prospect. It is situated off tho highroad, but near fiiough to tho villago to be easily acces sible to tho church, the school-house, tho post-office, tho railroad, a sociable neighbor, or a travelling friend. It con sists in duo proportion of pasture and tillage, meadow and woodland, lield and garden. A substantial dwelling, with every thing for convenience and nothing for ambition with the fitting appendages of stable, and barn, and corn-barn, and other farm buildings, not forgetting a spring-house, with a living fountain of water occupies, upon a gravelly knoll, a position well chosen to command the whole estate. A few acres on the front, and on the sides of tho dwelling, apart to gratify tho eyo with the choicer forms of rural' beauty, aro adorned with a stately avenuo, with noble solitary trees, with graceful clumps, shady walks, a velvet lawn, n brook murmuring over a pebbly bed, hero and thero a grand rock, whose cool shadow at sunset streams across tho field ; all displaying, in the real loveliness of nature, the original of thoso landscapes of which art in its perfection strives to give us the counterfeit presentment. Animals of select breed, such as Paul Potter, and Morland, and Limdseer, and llosa Itonhcur never painted, roam the pas tures, or fill the hurdles and the stalls ; tho plough walks in rnstic majesty across tho plain, and opens the genial bosom of tho earth to tho sun and air; nature's holy sacrament of seed time is solemnized beneath tho vaulted catho dral sky; silent dews, audgcutle show ers, and kindly sunshine, shed their sweet influence on tho teeming soil ; springing verdure clothes tho plain; golden wavelets, driven by tho western wind run over the joyous wheat-field; the tall maize flaunts in her crispy leaves and -nodding tassels while we labor and while wo rest, while wo wake and while wo sleop, God's chemistry, which wo cannot see, goes on beneath the clods ; myriads and myriads of vital cells ferment with elemental life ; germ and stalk and leaf and flower, and silk and tassel, and grain and fruit, grow up from the common earth; tho mowing machine aud reaper mute rivals of hu man industry perform their gladsome task ; tuo well-piled wagon brings home thf Tipenod treasure of tho year; the bow of promiso fulfilled spans the fbro Kround of tho picture, and tho gracious covenant is- redeemed, that, while the earth remaineth, summer and winter, and heat and cold, and day and night, and seed-time and harvest, shall not fall. A gentleman Just arrived in town from the East Informs us that while traveling between Pittsburg and Columbus-, Ohio, a vote was taken on tho train, with the following result ; For Seymour, 61 ; for Grant A little chink lots in much light.

This great work presents the only comnleto and impartial analysis of the Causes of tho Wur yet published, and gives those interior lights and shadows of the great conflict only known to those high officers who watched the tl nod-tide of revolution from its fountain springs, and which were so accessible to Mr. -ti'Dlirns ti'om his iiosition as second othcer of the Confederacy.
