elsof as good, sound corn as ever a granary
■was filled with. VViily Snug is a mortal
enemy to bad-tillage. His soil is alway s
ploughed in the very best manner, well
harrowed, and made mellow for the seed,
Notwithstanding the well known saying,
•list "more corn grows In crooked rows than
in straight ones," his rows are planted as
straight as an arrow, so that in ploughing ;
between them be is not obliged to tack eve- j
ry rod or two, like a vessel sailing with a :
headwind. And as he is particular in the
preparation of the soil, and planting the seed,
so he do.* not stand with his hands in hl5

allowed to claim aright to hi« fields b> l°J»g|f
possession. In tact, he ejects them (as the

time Ufa drought he does not keep turning ;
his eyes to the clouds with a black and d,s- j
mal cuntenance and exclaiming-there will
be no corn this ) ear !' while hi* fields are
baking to death for want of ploughing and I

\\ Illy Snug is well aware ot the effect of
moisture in producing pienti.ul crops. Of
course, whenever the water can he turned
by raising a small dam and digging a chan
r.el, it is done, oral the refreshing element !
jprea.i in gentle and almost invisible «H* j
iver the surface of Jus meadows, which are ;
always to he seen smiling and verdant, and ;
annually repaying the small expense of col- 1
tiVRtion. Neither is the beauty of nature i
thrown away in haying time by bad manage- j
nent. The grass is cut in the proper sea
..jit for making the In it hay and most of it. I
It is not mown so early ns to be what some ;
nor allowed to !
people call wishy-washy,
stand so lut e as to loose all its sweet and
nourishing juice, and drop off its seed and 1 1
blades inhaudline, leaving nothing fur the i
poor horses and cattle but the bare, sear,
good-fur'-nothing stalk. And when U»«
grass is cut, the boys are amongst it with
., . , ...... ,7 •
their rases and pitch-forks, and keeping ,
niuvmg as long as the sun shines, and until
it is properly cured and fitted f.,r the n,ow,*
where it may be seen the next spring asi
bright and sweet as when first slowed away.
Willy Snue is equally careful ill the preser
ration of his grain and usually gtts six
pence more for every bushel lie arils than
his neighbors, by reason of his judiciou s man
ogement. z\s for hay, he avers that he can
r arely afford to sell it, for with every load
of hay, lie is obliged to part with a load ot
more of manure, and thus far is impoverish
ing his farm.
In regard to building and fences, Willy
In regard to building and fences, Willy ;
Snug is emphatically what his name implies. I 1'
Every thing is snug about them. 11 is build- c !
îngs are never to be seen, like those «»I his 1
neighbor Look-on, glazed with «dd hats, and
painted by the hand of time and weather.- ,v
On the contrary, every window has i'sdue J. 1
proportion of glass, and every inch of wood
w°rk its appropriate covvrii. y of oil »«,<1 ^
paint. 1 he stone walls are well built ' a t
jn good condition; not a pannet, or any part ,
of one, is wanting in his rad fences; and the j
jjosts instead of standing every way, like a !
company of militia, are set in so straight a
line that you might take sight over the tops *
of a hundred of them as well as on the bar
relofarifie. There are no briars, t o bush
es, no thistles, no tall unsightly weeds grow*
;ng beside the fences, but all rs »moth?, neat ■ "
and productive as the rest of the enclosure. !!J
John Wesley list'd to say that farmer*
Were the most discontented rare ot oc ings A .
ill the world; that they were never satisfied 1 t ii'
either with God or man. If this account be : ei
true, Willv Snug is certainly ail exception, j
He takes the seasons as they come, tlischar
ges his own duty, and leaves the rest to I of
Heaven. He is not always complaining* ot
the weather, as bring too hot or too cold, 1 anil
too wet or Mo dry, anti taking occasion from ;
this dissatisfaction to neglect bis business.— ;
He has no horribly dull days, no time in i
which he cannot work. He is not seen of a , ual
rainy afternoon loitering at the tavern or
going away twe or three miles with a fish- '
pole on his shoulder. He always finds j
something to do at home. An axe is to b« ;
ground, a rake to be mended seeds to bc |
prepared for planting, and a thousand other
things to he attended to, which can be do.,e !
without exposure to the ram And when -,
these matters are discharged, there is anoth-1
er, which W illy Snug is careful not to neg- 1
lect.viz treading the newspaper. In fact,.
he affirms it to be an fallible remedy for ,
the blues, and worth all the whiskey, rum
and brandy in neighbor Signpost's bar. j
The same industiy, the same good man- ;
agement, and the same cheerful humor at- 1
tend upon Willy Snug throughout the year. ■
He does not throw away in winter the hard |
earned and precious products of his sum-,
mer's labor. His time is spent in feeding '
and taking care of his stock, laying in a ,
year's stipply of wood, and, during the long 1
winter evening, in improving iris tiwn mind i
bv reading, and improving the minds ot his
children. No sleigh-rides, no drunken
bouts, no killing of horses, no dancing all
night to gratify a vile taste fi.r frolicking 1
and fashionable amusement. Ncverthek-ss, |
Willy Snug is no niggard. There is not a
„ u tuKi.. timt« i • .. -,
more bountiful tabic than Ins the par,si,;
and we are informed by those who hav e .
slept at hi* house, that softer bed, than his I
never invited to sweet slumbeis and happy
dr:'am c . ... !
But, f peaking of these things, reminds us
that no little credit is due to VViily s wife.—
And indeed our description ot a good farm-|
cr would he incomplete without naming "his '
better half* in the same account; for one
man can no more be a good farmer with a
good-for-nothing wife, than Jade the ocean
dry with a sieve. Margaret bnug is known
among all her neighbors for making the
verv best of butter aud cheese* and as for
cookine a dish of meat making a bitch of

her superior could not be found. Her
house, her furniture, her children, cvery
thing is in order. And yet we are credibly
informed, she never scolds, not even on a
vrashingdayt In short, Margaret Snug is
the same within doors that Willy Snug is
without; and "they twain," in all the duties,
charities, and comforts of life, are emphat-
ically "ene flesh."
