The Lessons of Adversity., Adversity has its Ieessns in agriculture not lees thtn in politic?, medicine, finance morals. Of the latter we spoke in a late is sue. Of those to be draan from the present agiicaltaral adversity and distress in Eng land, we spake at considerable length a week or two before. If that distress shall lead even remotely to a change or modification of the laws of inheiitance and entail, of rent al of farms and the compensation to be pid to tenants for the "betterment" they make, of forestry and game, eta, which seems to tu Americans cot only oppressive acd un just to tenants, but most unwise eren far the landlords, if this be the result, then that adversity will not hare been without iu wholf some effect. In the different parts of our own country, various forma of adversity hare at different times taught their various kswne. In par s of New York, some thirty years ago, wneit raising became almost the exclusive indus try: soil and climate seemed to favor, and it paid better for a time than anyihiog else. jvery available acre for a few years wsa put to wheat Not enough stock was kept to re turn to the soil in manure any adequate proportion of the fertility exhausted by the successive crops. Ol course, adversity fol lowed, crops dnindlid. The fly, the "win-ter-kiil" (another same for poverty of soil), and the weevil made havoc Men of our own acquaintance, who had raised two or three thousand bushels of wheat annually, now harvested hardly as many hundred, and were finally forced to abandon the in dustry entirely, until the land, as if under the old Mosaic law, had enjoyed its sabbaths of rot. Toe farmers learned the lesson be fore the land was exhausted, and now under a wiser system of mixed husbandry, with rotation of crops, and more cat le and sheep, and the freer use of clover and manure, both liuq'd and solid, the fertility is restored and retained, and even heat in many cases is yielding aeaily its former abundant har vests. In parts of II inois the same leson is hardly yet learned. It was deemed at first thst the aurvelouely deep, black soil had fertility exbaostle, and that manure was needless. Corn alter corn, and wheat after wheat were raised and sold off of the farms, the straw sad stilka were burned and wasted, and even the manure made by the few bead of stock kept on the farms wsa not properly saved or used. That which colltcted about the bams was voted a nutates and seldom carted to the fields. The joke used to be that when the manuie-pile grew to be larg er than the barn, the barn was moved to a new spot ! The rich gift of nature in soil snd dims' evea led In auifilatsneaa and slovenliness in farming. O'couiee, teTeHe would come in time, and already on many farms, and even in wholedi tiicts, diminish ed crop and frequent fsilurei an t( aching that the laiisb gif J of nature are not to be abu ed or over es imated, acd that industry, economy, tidintst and thoroughly good farming bring their due rewards thi re even s j in the old and naturally less ferti'e Stales. In the dairy districts of Niw York and Ohio the farmets are learning a new lesson, or rather the old lesson slightly varied. The high prices of dairy products "doling and af ter the war led ti over-production. In many section dsirjiag became the exclusive industry. Every acre was devot.d to per manent meadow and pasture, and ever an imal was a cow and every gallon of milk was jealously taken to the cheese factory. The calves were "deaconed" and not raised. Scarcely an acre was plowed in while town ships, and the farmers bought floor and po tatoes for their familie ', and shorts and grain lor their cows add horses. Ordinary and regular farm work almost cved, except to milk the cows and cut the hay in tuinmer, and feed the toes and cut the fire-wood a winter. With no regular, a-eady, well-directed labor, men grew sbinUss, feoee and tarma ran down, old auaeows ran out Simple top-dressing did not bring in the lost seed. Piowiag, manuring, judicious ro tation, and isasidlng were need d. Had the price of dairy products remained high, this wretched state of things might have continued till the farms were worse than ran down. Reveres was needed, aad the sodden and treaatndooi decline ia prices set men to thinking. It was plain they could not make a living on the old plan, and there moat be a change. The erred, that "the cow is bettor than the plow," be.aa to be doubled. The land lose rested from wheat aad other grain, and vegetables, were f on I to prodree fins crops if properly tilled, specially when tile-drained. More plots and other instruments for the ccItiva'Mi ot the soil, we are credibly aof irmed, were sold in these dairy regions, ia 1877 and 1878. than in twen-y years just before. To ad vereky ia dsirfiag thrust three lessons be fore the farmets aad forced thea to heed them: That farm labor most be regular, persistent, well-directed, end fairly dirrib uted through the rear to meet doe rewards; that over production In any one direction is unsafe; and that in the long run a syrem of fairly divided mixed husbandry is the best,' But enough of special examples. In gen eral, it may be said that adversity sets men to thinking. It jo'tles them rudely some times, out of the ruts they were mechanical ly following. It sets them to tearching for me cauws ol lailore or distress. It makes them students in-tead of automatons, men and not machines. It teaches that patient, tnougntiui, persistent, wen-divMed, well directed effort is sure of reasonable reward. Rural New-Yorker. POST sTFICB HOtTBM: From 7 a. u. to 9. p. at.
