"The New Genesee Farmer," has passed through the first year of its publication witn very flattering succeas, notwithstanding the op posing inflnences which it has had.to encoun ter; and while the publishers express their gratitude for the assistance and support they have thits far received. they would now with rqnewed confidence, appeal to the friends of Agriculture for aid in behalf of the Second Volume. The successful re-establishment of the (ENESEE FARMER in its own Notwe Soil, and at its economical price, is a source of much gratification to the friends of improve ment in Western New York; and the pub lishers flatter themselves that their efforts are not unappreciated, and will not long be unre warded. It is now fairly proved that the " New Gene see Farmer" can be sustained, at a price which places it within the reach of all; and the repu- I tation which it has already obtained for talent and usfulness. will not suffer by a comparison with any paper of the kind in the Union. Every successive Number that has been issued, has shown an increase of talent and additional cor- I respondents. Besidos containing the most useful and spirited articles selected from 6ther Agricultural publications, the New Genesee c Farmer has received during the past year ori- C ginat contributions from more than SEVENTY I WRITE1tS, most of whom are-well known ( PRACTICAL FARMERS.

Alany of its present readers have ex ressed the high degree of satisfaction they .r ave derived from its pages; and we hnpe all I of them are so well pleased with it that they vill not only renew their own subscriptions a promptly, but induce their neigld,ors to sub- 3 scribe ALso. There nre thousands of farmers to be found, who have inever seen the New Genesee Farmer; and if it was shown them, and its character explained, they would readily subcribe. We conceive this to be a DUTY i which the readers of the paper owe to their C niciglibors, and to their couitry, as well as to 1 is. Let this ditty he (lone promptly, and our il me.ins of usefilliess will be greatly extended. 1 and the salutary itifluetice of the paper will soon be manifest throughout the Agricultural ommtnity. The friends of Agricultural Societies should especially encourage this paper; for, unless f farmers R E AD oN t/ic sublject, anud get theirrninrls interested in their professio.n, they will tnot act c elicienitly for its advanceenit. The Societies formed last year in WVestern New York, and their fiqge exhibitions, have alreadly given a new imple to the cau~se in this sect ion of coutntry: and it is confidently expected that mutch imure will be doine the coimng season. It will readily he setn that the paper ca-nnot e sustainied at this low price, withiout a very large subhscription list ; and as it will not affmrdi the expense of employing travelling Agents, 4 we must rely on the voluntary effoirts of the friends of the cautse, to obtain suliserilhern.

From the Camden Journal of March 31. Military Review--Presentation of the Flag to the Rije Guards-Dinner to the Governor. Our town presented a scene on Satur. day last which will not soon fade from the recollections of the citizens of this Dis trict. It was the day appointed by His Ex-. cellency Gov. Richardsou, to review the 22d Regiment of South Carolina Militia, and also selected for the presentation of- a splendid Flag, richly embroidered and or namented, by the Ladies of Camden, to the DeKalb Rifle Guards. The day was beautiful, and the Regi ment was as fu;l as we have-seen it for years past. The evolutions on the field were performed with a regularity and pre cision which drew from His Excellency, in his address to the Regiment, the high est prai.4. He particularized the Guards as a volunteer corps, not surpassed by any in the State, and paid a handsome com pliment to the fourth Compauy, comman tled by Capt. W. J. Taylor. In the course if his address, he did justice to the Field Dficers who are at present in command, and referred feelingly and appropriately o the untiring zeal and patriotism of the ate lamented commander of the Regi nent, Col. John Chesnut. His Exeellen y's tribute to the memory of this excel ent citizen, patriot and soldier, we feel issured met a sympathetic response in the osom of every one who heard him. After the Regiient had gone: through he evolutions appointed for the day, they narched to the Presbyterian Cnurch, the ilace selected for the ceremony of present ng the Flag to the Rifle Guards. The Regiment was drawn up in close rder in front of the Monument erected by ur citizens to the memory of the heroic OeKalb, while the spacious porch of the hurch and numerous carriages in the cir- 1 le, as well as the piazzas of the adjacent 1 uildiUgs, were crowded with the beauty nd fashion of the town and surrounding I 3untry, all assembled to witness the inter ting ceremony, and adding inspiration the imposing scene. sponded in a style which manilested the timation which he placed upon the beau rul and inspiring present, and placed it i the hands of Ensign Shannon, with the letmn charge that, as his honor, he should I -otect and defend it. The low tone of 1 >ice in which the reply of Ensign Shan- i )u was made, prevented us from hearing stinctly, all he said, but we doubt not 1 at in his hands it will, whatever dangers ay surround it, never be yielded but with fe. After the conclusion of the ceremonie3 t he Monunent, His Excellency and uite, together with a number of invited uests, partook of a dinner with the Rifle Inards, at Gifford's Hall. Our engagements prevented us from be ig present at the entertainment, and we annot therefore speak from our own know dge, but we learn that it was gotten up Mr Gifford's usual splendid style. and is is enough to assure us that it was no rdinary affair. We have met but few osts who are capable of giving more per ct satisfiaction to his guests than Mr. Gif )rd. WVe have bteen kindly futrnished by a orresplondlent with the following notice of he Dinner to the Governor, by the " De Clb Guards." After His Excellency had presented th~e Inag at the Motnument, he was escorted y the Corps to Gifford's Hall, where a nst sumpItu otus repast had been prepared a honor to him and the day. Among the nvited guests ptresent were, Adjutant seneral Catnty, the Executive and Brig de Staff, Col. H aile, of the 22d, and Col. Iuey of the 2.3d Regiments, and the orgi rs of the Kershaw Troop. The0 civil atns were nobly represented by his Honor ludge Earle, and our distinguished Setna or, Hion. Wmn. M'WVillie.

Scarcely, however, ad he gained the summit when the hori on was darkened by one of those impen -able mists which rrequently descend so ,pidly amidst these mountains, as in the pace ofn few minutes, almost turn day to ight. The anxious father intistntly has. med back to find his child, but owing to' ie ttnustal darkness, and his own rrepida on. unfortunately missed his way in the escent. After a fruitless search of many ours, he discovered that he had reached ie hottom of the valley, and was near his wn cottage. To renew his search that ight was equally fruitless and dangerous, e was therefore compelled to go home. al tough he had lost both his child and his og, who bad attended him faithfully for tany years. Next morning, by break of ay, the shepherd, accompanied by a baud f his neighbors, set out in search of lis. hild; but, after a day spent in fruitless stigue, he was -at last compelled by the pproach of night, to descend from the t ountain. On his returning home to htis nttage, he found that the dog, wvhich lhe ist the day before, h-id been home, and ni receiving a piece of cake, had instantly one off again. For several successive sys the shepherd renewecd his search for is child. and still on ret urning home dis-' prointed in the evening, he found t hat the' og hail been home, and, oh receiving his sual allowance of cake, had instantly dis p~peare~d. Struck with this singular cir utmstance, he remained at home one day, ndi when the dog, as usual, departed with is piece of cake, he resolved to follow im, and fitd out ihe cause of this strange' rocedure. The dog led the way to a cat y'act at some distance from the spot wher8' ie shepherd had left his child.

From the situation in which the hild was found, it appeared that he had vandered to the brink of the precipice,.and hen either fallen or scrambled down till ie reached the cave. The dog, by means if his scent, had traced him to the.spot-;. ind afterwards prevened.hinefram star--. og, by giving up~ to him his ownedaily al owance.
