Several gentlemen have requested
that we suggest the propriety of oui
farmers, Hardeners, and others interested
in agricultural pursuits, forming
themselves into a County agricultural
association. We think the idea a good
one, and liopo some action will be taken
to secure such an organization.? Wiri
county Democrat.
The idea is indeed a most excellent
one. livery county ought to have an
association of this kind, where the
farmers, gardeners, graziers, &c., might
' meet lrom time to time, compare notes,
exchange views, relate (heir experiences,
make suggestions and in general
make the gains of each in the particular
branch in which he has been engaged
the common property of all,
Such associations as these will cultivate
a spirit of inquiry, improvement and
rivalry among farmers, and be a means
of personal improvement as well as ol
profit for all who take part in them.
The farmers' sons will be led to feel an
interest in agricultural pursuits that
they do not now feel, for they will learn
in that way that these may be made the
most Intellectual as they are the most
healthful and Independent of all occupations;
and instead of regarding their
life on a farm as mere stupid drudgery,
aud escaping at every opportunity to
engage in the more attractive but enervating
pursuits of town-life, they will
stay In the country and help build It
up Into a genuine prosperity and greatness.

City, about twenty-live miles beltfl*
this place on the river In MaBoc

i, oil as it is now for its salt, according
- to present appearances. The Valley
f City Salt Company in which Mr. Proc
' tor of this place is a stockholder, at a
depth of about tiOO ieet, In one of theii
' salt wells, on Monday the 14th lust,
struck oil, which rises spontaneously
to the surface bo copiously that on
Saturday last It bad filled to overtioW'
' Ing an excavation with a capacity ol
from eight to ten thousand gallons,
The excavation is 22 feet in depth, IS
t feet square at the bottom from which
the T?eil was started a few months since.
As soon as the Company was organized
this and another well
> which has not yet reached the oil
level, were commenced. It is sa
near the one from whioh the oil is now
_ flowing, that it is expected to discharge
oil in tqual abundance when the prop
er depth is reached. So confident were
the stockholders of obtaining ? large
supply of salt water, that when thej
commenced boring, they also began the
i erection of buildings and procuring
' apparatus for the manufacture of sail
on an extensive sesale, and for these
purposes they have already expended
large sums of money. We understand
!5 that in a few days they will decide the
question whether they will save the oil

j' A CULLEUE LETTER.
Commencement at Williams Co!Ieg<
e jTlnss.?Tiuit Little Speecb or
Hio or H'Clellau's.
e Boston, J une 30, 1SG9.
To Xlie Editor of tlie Intelligencer:
? A brief account of the Annual Festi
vsl of commencement week at William
'* College, which I recently attended wit
the Mayor or your city, may not be ud
, interesting to your readers. This Col
lege was founded by Col. Kphriar
Williams, a gallant soldier of inor
Q than a century ago, who fell i
( battle at Lake George, while fightln
to protect his home from the ruthlea
~ savages and the still more barbarous fo
11 who sought Indians as his allies. 1
numbers among its former student
e and graduates, gentlemen from a]
parts of the South and West, an
" names once familiar in your city, a
well as those to day well known i:
- your streets, are found on the roll c
? its alumni. Canning, Trissell and Ale
. Clellau are among them.
a As the mountains of Palestine wer
i round about Jerusulem, so the Berk
shire mountains, Greylock, the Dome
Prospect, Hoosac, and others ofth
Xahgouic and Green mountaii
ranges, surround the charming valie;
3 where stand the halls of Williams
B Green Kiver, which inspired Bryan
with such poetic feeling, and th
Hoosac, famous in Indian legend, rol
their streams through the town; unc
I the Housatonic, on whose banks thi
. Mohegans lived in days gone by, rial
in the neighboring hills. The scenerj
> is Indeed lovely, and lierkshire countj
- is said to have produced more distin
3 guished men than any other county ii
the Union. One among them, Iiov. Dr
1 Hopkins, or as he was once toasted, "It
the words of Scripture, Jlark the per
- reet man," is now the oldest Collegi
r President In term of office, if not o
years, in the country, and the head o
old Williams.
b We lefc liostou, Intending to reaci
Williams in season to hear his Bacca
laureate address, and were richly rewarded
for our long ride. Ilia subjec
1 was the distinction in nature and func
i tion between the body, the soul, ant
. the spirit of man. His views weri
novel to modern philosophy, but hi
3 claimed them to be those ol the primi
3 tive church. His treatment of this pro
found and metaphysical subject invest
ed it with great interest, and the sermoi
' is generally considered one ol his mos
' powerful etlorts.
Another interesting feature of thi
| day was the anniversary of the Milli
Theological Society. This College as ii
doubtless known to all your readeri
i who take an Interest in such matters
j was the birth-place of American Poreigr
, Missions. In a grove still standing
and beneath the shadow of a hay-stack
1 whose former location is now markec
?*?? O inorhlr. mnniimpnt. fthnnf. sixtl
L years ago, Mills, llichards, Green ant
their youthlul companions, knelt it
prayer and consecrated their lives t<
i tbe service of Christ in preaching th<
r Gospel among the heathen. They torrned
a society, which still exists in th<
College, and the annual sermon was
; preached before them by the Kev. Dr
1'rlme, one of the editors of the New
| York Observer.
The most interesting day of the week
In many respects, was Class Day
This is the day of the Students, as
[ Commencement is of the otHcers.
' Private little "spreads" in the rooms
Of the Seniors, to which their friends
and lady visitors are invited, are tht
i feature of the morning?In the after,
noon the Seniors assemble lu front 01
ane of the College buildings, march in
procession to the Church, and listen tc
an oration and poem by one of theii
number. This ended, they form in
procesaion, with a band of music at
their headr and going from one old
bulldiug to another, bid it farewell with
rousing cheers. They next assemble
under the walls of the Chapel, where
the Class Ivy is planted, each in turn
1 dropping earth from a trowel upon Its
roots. The walla of Alumni Hall and
i of the Chapel are already half hidden
by the clinging branches of the vines'
planted by former olasses. The Ivy
oration is pronounced; the gift of books!
i to the College Library, and the Library
address follow; and then the more
popular and amusing speech to the
lower classes ensues. For lliia and the
1 class history which narrates some oJ
, the more amusing points in the College
life of the clasB, the wittiest men are selected.
The Calumet or l'ipe of Peace
is smoked in silence, and the public
exercises aro ended. Of the mystic services
iu private, the "Prophecy," the
oonfessions.of "heart disease," the farewell
songs, and the last parting of
classmates, never to meet again on
"this side the river," 1 cannot tell
you, but tbe sun was in the morning
Bky;before they were over.
The gathering of the Alumni on the
day before commencement was another
interesting feature of the week. Venerable
fathers in thechurch, prominent
men from the halls of Congress, or seats
of high responsibility on the bench,
eminent physiciaus, successful merchants,
here meet on equal terms, with
cordial grasp and pleasant memories,
their less successful competitors in the
race, recalling with delight the happy
days so beautifully described by Dr.
Holmes iu the old time, "when you
were Joe and I was Hill." I should fatigue
your readers did I attempt to give
a list, but among the distinguished
gentlemen on tbe ground might be
named Judge Colt and Judge Welle, of
, the Supreme Court of this Slate, Win.
Cullen Bryant, President of the Society
ot Alumni, David Dudley Field, liev.
Orvllle Dewey, D. D., Dr. Prime, Judge
Dewey, of the Superior Court, and
many others.
The seventy-fifth commencement cci
curred on Thursday. The speaking of
the young gentlemen was excellent, it
showed, maturity of thought and a freedom
from attempt at mere display, as
well as a manliness and dignity, that
we look for in vain among speakers ol
far higher pretensions. The services
closed with the awarding of tbedegrees
engrossed on parchment and sealed,
and ribboned with the College colorpurple.
Among the houorary degrees
' that of Li. Ij. D. was given to brave old
general vvuui, Ul i uv umieu oimea
Aruiy, ?nd an honorary A. M., the first
ever given by the College. "causa hon?
oris," to one of Ha own graduates, to
Mayor McClellan, who was as much
surprised as pleased at its reception.
The annual dinner at the close of
these services ended the week. I should
like to tell you of the eloquent words
which fell from the lips ot Bryant, of
the wisdom which was uttered by Dr.
Dewey, and of other matters of Interest
which occurred there. But I must only
mention the speech of Mayor McClellan,
which though briet, elicited more
applause than any other. When he
was called out, which was done withI
out a hint or word of warning from the
President, he was somewhat surprised
having been taken, as it were, unal
wares. He very gracefully turned the
tables upon the President, by reminding
him of the fact that when he was
about graduating, the Faculty deemed
him unworthy to address the audience
in Knglish, but obliged him to talk
Latin. (Iu other woids, as I doubt
not you perceive, he received the second
honor of the College, the Latin .Salutatory.)
lie said he had not learned
to talk much more eloquently since,
and closed, after thanking the President
for the honor conferred on him,
by saying to the Treasurer that he had
a check for $500 in his pocket, which
was at the disposal of the College. This
timely gift, when the college is struggling
to secure $50,000 to obtain an
equal amount froua the States called
1 out long and continued applause, and
i was decidedly the speech of the day.
But my letter is longer now than X
intended it, and I will only say no better
college oan befouud for a fatherto
place his son at, or a student to acquire
a gocd solid education, than Williams.

What u pity mat a young man, the hojx:of

of life by the consequence of deviaig
from the path of nature, and indulging
a certain secret habit, ?3 uch persons must,
