STAR OF THE NORTH.
CAgricnltnrnl Department- The Farmer's Life. The tollowing extract from an agricultu ral address of Horace Grecly's contains much truthful sentiment, and shoal d be well considered by farmers generally. "Alter all ot the eloquence of poetry that has been lavished on the farmer's vocation, its independence its security, its dignity, its quiet, its happiness—there are not many decidedly clever youths even in Ihe house holds of farmers who are delibera'ely choos ing the farmer's calling as preferable to all others. Hundreds drift or settle imo Agri culture because they cannot acquire a pro fessional training, or because they hate to study, or because tlicy cannot get trusted for a siock of goods, or for some one of a hundred reasons ; very few because tliey decidedly prefer this life to any other. Advertise in the same paper to-morrow for a man on the farm and a clerk, the wages in each case being the same, and you will have twenty applications for the latter place to one of the former. Tis fact argues a grave error somewhere ; and as I don't be lieve it is human nature, not in that provi dential necesssity which requires most of lis to be farmers, I must believe il is to be delected in the arrangement and condition nndor which farm labor is performed. We must study out the delect and amend it When the rural neighborhood shall have be come more social, and the farmer's home more intelectual—when the best books and periodicals not only agricflttural but others also, shall be found on his evening table and his hired men be invited to profit by them—the general repugnance of intellect ual youth lo farming will gradually disap pear. We Americans, as people, do less to ren der our homes attractive, than an other people of equal means on the earth. And lor this there is very much excuse. We are 'rolling stones,' which have not yet lound lime to gather any v.ery graceful moss. We are on our march from Western Europe to the shores of the Pacific, and have halted from time to time by the way, but not yet settled. That sacred and tender attachment to home which pervades all o'her human breasts has but slender hold upon us. There are not many of us who would not sell the house over his own head if he were offered a good price for it. Not one fourth of us now live ill the same house in which' we were born ; not half of us confidently expect to die in the homes we now occupy. Hence we cannot be expected to plant trees, and train vines, and set flowering shrubs, as we might do, il we had, in the proper sense of the word, a Home. I apprehend that we are to-day the least social people on earth, and this is especial ly true of our purely agricultural districts. The idler and the dissipated are gregarious ; but our iudustirous, sober, thrifty farming population enjoy too little of each other's society. In the old world, for the most part, the tillers of the soil live in villiages or ham lets surrounded at distances varying from ten rods to three miles, by the'lands they cul tivatc and sometimes own. When the day's labor is over, they gather in good weather, on the village green, under a spreading tree, or some inviting grove, and song and story, conversation and moonlight dance, are the cheap solace of their privations, their labors and their cares. But our American farmers are islands, seperated by seas of forest and fencing, and farmers, their families and la borers, rarely see those living a mile or two away, save when they pass 111 the road or meet on Sunday in church. Breeding Horses. As there are many eroncous opinions en lertaineil respecting the breeding of horses, 1 trust I may be indulged a hearing if I give the public the observations I have made on this subject. As a practical far mer, I do not hesitate to express my opin ion, and give the prominent reason tvhy we liave so many horses inferior in size, strength, beauty and motion. This is not owing to a want of care taken of the colts, or to their not being well fed or sheltered during the severity of the winter. The fact is, that most farmers are induced to take good care of their animals, because they know it is for their 'ntcreets to do so. The great reason is, the mares selected for breed ers are unfit for the purpose. They are, perhaps, too small, they lack physical vig or, or they have become old, or have been over-worked or broken down. In addition to these defects they are not sprightly or agile in their motions, nor kind in their disposition. Such animals should not be selected for breeding. Nor again should the sires be ill-shaped, overgrown, coarse, ungainly in their motions and malicious in their dispositions. Observation shows that colts usually take the shape of the head, ears, chest, limbs and feet more from the sire than from the dam; while the size of the body, form of the hips, and color seem to hear a closer resemblance to the latter. For this reason the mare should be oi good size, well pro portioned and easy of motion; and it is un necessary to remark that all these qualities in a high degree, are requisite in the sire. Some farmers greatly overvalue horses that are fast trotters, and mares that move rapid ly are held in market at a high price. MIXTURB OK GRASS SEEDS.— We question wether sufficient attention has been paid to this subject in our country. In England, and on the Continent, farmers mix several kinds of seed together, when laying down their lands to grass, because some sorts grow better than others in different parts of lite same year.—We have seen the following mixture tried and are prepared to recom mend it: Ten pounds of red clover, five pounds of white clover, one peck of herd gass, and half a bushel of red lop. Let this be salted down with two bushels of plaster. TUB best things to take in any and all ca ses of consumption, is exercise, substantial food, and outdoor air in large but duo pro portions ; and that, without lheso. 110 case of consumptive disease has ever been suc cessfully treated by any man, living or dead.

J A BRETT, OF THE NEW YORK LUNG ; INFIRMARY—My connection for the past S'glil year, with the above Institution, as Chief Physician, and a twelve years' course of steady devotion lo the Cure of Pulmonary Consumption and its kintlred disease, togeth er with my unrivalled opportunities and ad vantages of palhologieal researches—aided not a little by a perfect system of Alebtcal In- ! halation —lias enabled me to arrive at a do- i cisive, direct, ami successful course of Irea'- ment for the positive and radical cure of all diseases of ihe Throat, Lungs, and Air-Pas saga. By Inhalation, the vapor and curative propertios ol medicines are di'ectly address- j edto the diseased orgsnsand the integument. ; 1 do not odvise the use of medical Inhalation ! of any kind, to the exclusion of general heat- ' went ; and although 1 consider it a useful ad juvant in the proper management of those ; learlul and often fatal diseases, yet I deem il 1 very necessary that each patient should have j the benefit of both gsncrat and local treat* ' merit. The success of my treatment in the ' above diseases, and in the high character of j Ihe Institution over which I l.ave so long had j the honor to preside, are too well known to need any eulogy or comment Irom me. At i the solicitation of many private and profos- | sinial friends, through whose philanthropic ! aid Ihe above charity has been long and lib- ! erally supported, and after due consideration, ! I have concluded to make such arrangements ae will bring the beuefits of my experience j and treatment within the reach of all, and nol 1 confine myself, as heretofore, to those only : who entered the Infirmary, or who were able j lo visit me at my oftlce. Hoping therefore 1 that the arrangement will give entire satislac- : tion, both lo my professional brethem and i the public, I would respectfully announce in conclusion that I can be consultedpenomuty or by letter, on all diseases as above, and that the | medicines, the same as used in the Institution brepared to suit each individual case. In- : haling vapors, Aledual Inhales , &c. &c. will be forwarded by express to any part ol the Uni- I led Stales or Canadas. TERM*—My terms of i treatment by letter ore as follows, viz.: 812 I permonth foreach patient, which will include ■ medicine sufficient for one month's use; al- I so, Inhaling Vapor, arid an Inhaling Apparat j us. Payments a* follows: 86 lo paid lo Ex- I press Agent on receipt oi the box of Metli- I cute, ami lite balance $6 at the expiration of j the month, if ihe patient is cured or is entire i ly satisfied with ihe treatment. Patients, by j giving a full history of their case, and their j symptoms in full, can be Irealed as well by | letter ashy personal examination. Patients j availing themselves of Dr. Jarrett's treat j merit may rely upon immediate anil perma ! nent relief, as he seldom has lo treat a case over thirty days. Letters ol advice promptly unswered.
