Providence has furnished an antidote in the
little birds, who cheer us with their songs,
and build their nests in our orchards, and court
the good will and friendship of men. Of l.ieso
birds, the robin is the most useful to t'ie fair
„,er. as it preys with avidity upon these in
sects, which fact may be easily ascertained by
visltirig a nest of young robins, near a corr.-_
field, when it will be perceived that the cui
tunrm furnishes quite a large poilion of their
food.
And at otner limes, the robin feeds on dif
ferent species of worms, and oilier insects,
which are found on ihe surface of ihe ground
and the immeuso services which it thus ren
ders to the farmpr, ought to command his pe.
culiar care and patronage. He ought to do
