Iow blest the farmer's simple life,
How pure the joy it yields!
Far from the world's tempestuous strife,
Free 'mid the scented fields.-EvERETT.
BEnOLD the firm and steady trend,
As turning o'er the fruitful soil
le labors fur his daily bread,
Made sweeter by continuous toil.
Ilis mind is not oppressed by cares,
He's neither dreary nor forlorn,
So long as rank, unfruitful tares
Do not ehuke up his growing corn.
Ile whistles as he walks along
Within the furrows freshly made,
Or murmurs forth his simple song,
Unknown to those of lordly grade !
Iis feet are bathed in morning dew,
For ere the sun his warm glow yields
In mornings first grey, misty hue,
He's plodding through the verdure fields.
His face with health, and pleasure glows,
Far different from the lordly throng;
Iis cheeks are blooming like the rose,
-His sturdy form stout and strong :
Ilis tone is fearless while he talks,
His voice is open, bold and clear,
flis step is steady while he walks,
Nor does it seen to falter e'er.
Ile has no sordid thoughts of gain
Has but one simple wish or two
And as he labors on the plain,
His heart is light and merry too.
Ris song that floats upon the air,
And echoes in the wooded dell,
Breathes of his love, his maiden fair,
Whose virtue he delights to tell.
Ilis bread is sweet, though brown it be,
His crystal liquid, pare and clear,
His heart is merry, light and free,
His maiden, as his, life is dear.
His rest at night is sweet and deep,
And with refreshments teems,
And while he rests his gentle sleep
Has for conpanions blissful dreams.
Plow on thou hearty, fearless man,
Plow deeply in the fertile soil,
Thy ruddy cheek will ne'er grow wane
From honest, constant steady toil.
Fear not the scorn of those less pure,
E'en though encased in robes more fine,
They'd give their pleasures fine robes too,
For hearts as light and as pure as thine.
From the Soil of the South.
HOW TO RATE TH PRICE OF COTTON.
AlR. EDITOR: It strikes me that you
must be well pleased with the result of your
labors when you read the newspapers, and
see -the accounts of fine cotton crops from
every section of our country, and the
scarcity and high price of provisions. As
the object of your paper is to teach the
planters of the South how to raise large
crops of cotton and get 4 and 5 cents for
it; to raise small crops of corn and poor
hogs, if any at all, and pay onc dollar per
bushel for the former, and 10 and 12 cents
for bacon, I say you must be well pileased to
find that your suggestions are so generally
But laying all jokes aside, do you not
sometimes think that your undertaking is a
hopeless one-that of eudeouraging aind ad.
vising the planters to raise an abundant
upply of provisions and stock of all kinds,
- -as- much cotton as they can after this is
done, and improve their plantations so as to
preserve and in crease their fertility, and
keep them in a high state of cultivation?
The cotton growing States can make, in an
ordinary year, not only as much cotton as
c an be saved in gzoodl time, saty by Christ
mans, but also a bountiful supplly of' pork,
cotton, oats, peas, and potatoes, and I might
add wheat. Is it done?
An answer is readily procured by taking
Columbus as a criterion for the past year,
and inquiring how many hogsheads of
bacon have been brought here, how many
bushels of corn from the west, and how
many of wvheat ? Bacon has been sold as
high as fifteen cents, corn has brought from
eighty-five cents to a dolar and a quarter to
a dollar and a half per bushel. Northern
hay has been sold at one dollar and seven
ty-five cents per hundred in our streets.
Why is this ? M~en bad just as wvell ac
knowvledge the truth at onice, and say they
plant their best lands in cotton, too few
acres in corn and oats, and pay no atteni
tion to the raising of hogs. The high
price of cotton dturing the last season has
caused many a farmer to have a scant sup.
ply of corn for the next year; antd not the
dry weather that was experienced during
the past year. It is true, the drought affect
ed corn crops seriously, but in many in
stances on adjoining plantations, where the
land was equally fertile and well worked,
01n0 mant has an abundance of corn, and
another a meagre supply. What is thme
reason ? There is but one ; and that is, one
planted a sufficient quantity of land to
produce corn enough if the seasons were
not very propitious, and the other planted
just enough, providled the seasons were
genial. I ask the planters if it is not time
to change this order of things? You will
hear a man at any time, wh'lo has cotton to
sell complain that the Englisht Spinner and
the Northern mianufactu rer are attempting
to purchmase it for less than he thinks it is
worth, when if von would visit the planta
tion you wvill see poor mules, an empty
smoke house and thvee-fourths, if not four
fifths, of his land planted in cotton. lie is
one of those who neglect every thing for
cotton, help swell the receipts, and real) for
their labor a low price. Does he make
more clear money than tihe man who raised
his own supplies, and makes cotton a
secondary consideration ? Does he clear
as much? I appecal to those wvho have
triedl both, to answver the question.
He has to take his five and six cents
cotton money, and buy another man's ten
and twelve cents bacon and dollar corn.
'Think of it that with a soil and clinmate
adapted to raising almost every article of
food for man and beast, the necessaries of
life particularly, our people should buy
meat prodluced in Tennessee, Kentucky,
Ohio, andl Indiana andl hay grown in New
York andl Maine. What a Commentary on
Southern enterprise atnd agricultural skill!
Let every planter determine that lhe will
ever after feed his family and negroes on
Southern raisedl corn and hay-make what
cotton he can besides this, and I will
guarantee there will be no comnplaint about
the price of cotton. I think all that was
necessary for the planter's convention in
Macon to say to them, was-make your
owen supplics, and you will find- a remedy
for the low price of cotton.
Ar a parish examination, a clergyman
asked a charity boy if he had ever been bap

AGRICULTURE AND AGEICULTURMIS.
Agriculture is the body, while the other
professions are the members; and althoug'h
the body and members are mutually depen
dent, and reciprocally useful to each other,
the body can exist without the members.
The farmer can supply his necessities, and
most of his reasonable wants within the
circle of his family, he can feed and clothe
himself: but his wants are enlarged, and his
ability to gratify them increased, in propor
tion to the profits of his labor. Tf, througlh
ignorance or sloth, lie produces only what is
necessary for the sustenance of his house
hold, he can buy neither of the merchant,
the manufacturer, nor the mechanic-nor
contribute to the support o' the learned
professions; or, if lie buys, lie cannot pay.
But, if his produce is double what is re
quired for the consumption of the family,
the surplus half may he employed for the
benefit of the other classes-in purchasing
from them the comforts and elegancies of
life. The other classes, on contrariwise,
cannot thrive, as such, without the aid of
the farmer: he furnishes the raw materials
for the manufacturer; lie feeds the mechan
ic, and freights the bark of commerce; aind
is, besides, the principle customer to them
The head can do no more than the hands.
The animal strength of the ox and the
horse would effect no useful purpose, with
out the contrivance and direction of man.
In many countries on the old continent,
where the cultivator is debased by igno
rance and despotism, the awkward, ill-con.
trived implements of the primitive ages are
still in use. There is not a nanufacturmgi
employment, nor mechanical art, but has
been abridged in its manipulations, anid had
its fabrics improved in quality, and reduced
in price, by the aid of modern science. We
say modern science, because some branches
are but beginning to develope their practi
eal advantages to useful labor. We verily
believe that science can do more, and will
lo more, in the coning thirty years to im
prove the condition of agriculture, than has
been effected in the last three centuries.
An intelligent head is deemed of more im
portance, and commands a higher compen
sation in many of our large establishments,
than half a dozen mere sinewy arms. Mind
is the great lever that moves the material
world-the master spirit that civilizes man,
and multiplies his conorts and enjoyments.
We acquire knowledge in our business me
ehanically, but slowly. The acquisition
may be accelerated and augmented to an
mazing extent, by the experience and teach
ings of men who have made natural and
hemical science their study and employ
ment for life. There is another considera
tion which renders the improvement of the
ind, of public benefit; ignorance begets
indolence, and indolence begets vice. I f
we would, therefore, inculcate virtue, we
ust foster industry: and if we would make
ndustry respectable and desirable, we must
'hrow light upon its paths, and secure for it
7 merited reward.
It results as a consequence, that the im
rovemnent of our agriculture is of the first
mportance to every class of our popubi1i
:ion ; and that this implrovemient can in no
vise receive such etlicient aid, as by in
tructing the youth wh'lo are hereafter to
unnage its concerns, as well in the science,
is in the practice of their business.

" I endeavor every year to raise a good

LOVE IN THE FAMILY.
We have not half confidence enough in
the pover of love to disarm the violent and
to reclaim the vicions. The fault begins in
our families. We do not seek enough to
bear vith each other's faults. We mistake
our selfish impatience of each other's foibles
or faults, for a righteous indigntionri at
wrong ; and our obstinacy and pride, which
would conform all others to our own ideas
or things, for firmness of prinlciples and fi
delitv to duty. We do not seek enough in
our own hones to call forth the better quali.
ties in each other's heiarts. The faults of
our friends are often the reflection of our
own weakness or errors. Our carelessness
causes their petulance, our jealousy, their
suspicions, our sellishness, their grief, our
injustice, their anger. So likewise it is with
our children. We do not love them enough
to make sacrifices for them in little things.
We do not teach then disinterestedness by
our willingness to give tip our taste for them.
We punlish them beenuse they annoy us

There is something becautiftul in the chuirch

Yes ; there is a whole sermoaan in the veary

vanities, your fallies, your week-day craft."
A nd yoti, ye htuan vessels, gilt and paint

BEGENTLEMEN AT HoME.-There are
few faa-,lies, we may imagine anywhere, in
whigh: love is. not abused as furnishing a
lieeie for iin liteness. A husband, father
or brother ill harsh words to those
whom lie because the security
of love and pride keeps him l'roi
getting his had broike. It Is a shame that
lie will speak more impolitely, at times to his
wife or sister, thau lie would dare to any
other female except a low and vicious one.
It is thus that the holiest aflf'ctions of manii's
nature prove to be a weaker protection of'
woman in the family circle than the restraints
of society and that a woman is usnally in
debted for the kindest politeness of lifle to
those not belonging to her own household.
Things onght not so to be. The man who,
because it' will not be resented, afflict lis
spleen and bad temper upon those of his
hearth-stone, is a small coward, and a very
mean man. Kind words are the circulating
mediup, between true gentlemen and true
ladies at home, and no polish exhibited in
society can atone for the harsh language anl
disrespectful treatment too ofteni inliilged in
between those bound together by God's own
ties of blood, and the still more sacred
bonds of conjugal love.
