EJ. mtrictin. lIRESi, BY NICHOLAS 1311)1)1, Esq. r THE 1-lllL.tllEl.rilIA inillCl'LTl'ltAL EXtlltll TION. Tlicre arc, perhaps, few portions of ic earth more favored by Nature than entisylvania. Her soil is excellent ml various while even the parts least dapted in themselves for agriculture, iruisli the best encouragement lo it; r the hills which reject the plough are lied with coal and iron, w hich collect trge masses of the people to be fed by ic farmers, J Ier climate is a happy tedium between the long winters of orthern regions, which close the earth r many months against farm labor, nd consume so much of its produce in urrying tlie larm stock, over long ! lonths of idleness, and, on the other de, the unvarying heat of southern lut udes, often unhealthy and unproduc vc, w here both man and cattle and egenerate. In this climate almost very production may bo naturalized, o that, in point of soil and seasons, and ariety of productiveness, l'ennsylvania s distinguished. These natural advantages she has .lso the means of improving by artificial aeans; for the limestone, so great an lemeut in farming, is found every vhere, in great abundance. Plaster of 'aris is obtained easily and at low rices, front her neighbor, New York ; he large cities furnish vast supplies of inimai manure, wnue, on me oiner ther side of the Delaware, lies a great elt of green sand, erroneously called narl, an original denosite of the ocean, vhere, among bones of extinguished .,ace of animals, and relics of a sub- merged world, there is brought up this land, highly useful even in its natural ttate, and if mixed with lime, as it hottld be, of great etiiracy. Ate acquiescence in , he decisions of the By M.tssoi & ElMvly. The implements of Imslinmlrv r.nmn next in order, and these we have of the very best kind, much better thansimi lar implements in Europe; lighter more easily handled, and there arc one or two in common use with us, such for instance, as the horse rake, and that i K'iiDt instrument, tho cradle, which ar j unknown or unused abroad; in truth, I our people have had so much to do wiih j comparatively small means that their , ingenuity has been tasked to invent tin: j most cllicient instruments, and to make the most active use of them. Thus I there are two words in almost all Ian j guages, and well defined in most dic tionaries, but of which Europeans have scarcely any idea, and these are the axe and the plough. To cut down a tree, the great business of American seniors, is a strange event to a European far mer. And then it mar make us smile j to see, as wc may on the continent of lijuipoo, ai tne present time, a. whole j drove of horses I have myself actual ly seen eight in a single plough and j sometimes the whole quadruped force I of the farm, three or four cows, and j perhaps a bull or two, with the aid of ; several horses, toiling slowly through the great work of turning up'thc soil ! nay, even in some parts of England, at j this moment, may be seen six large I horses, with two full grown men return- ing from the field after having ploughed during the day, three quarters of an a pair of horses, would have got thro' an acre or an acre and a half. From the implements let us turn to our stock of animals. And first of our IIorsks: Ueginnin with the highest blooded stork, I Uiin it probable that the United States pos sess quite as good a race as there is in Europe. The prevailing opinion is, that the Arabian horse is the original of that animal. I doubt the historical fact; but if it be so, he is tho parent stock of the horse, just as the father of all apples is the crab, which has been sweetened bv cultivation into the bell-flower. Undoubtedly the Arabian has improved the English horse has given him finer sinews, more compact bones, and greater intelligence, till the cross has become avowedly the first of his kind. The truth is, that a race is but a quick succession of long jumps, and the little light Arab is out-jumped by the gigan tic stride of the stronger, larger, longer legged English horse, who has beaten him on his own sands in the cast, ami would distance him on any course in Europe. Indeed, the very first Arabian imported into England two centuries ago, called the Markhnm Arabian, was constantly beaien, and mv impression is, that no Arabian horse ever did win a rare in that country. The belief of our breeders is, that whatever good there may be in the Arabian is exceed ingly slow in show ing itself; that he has already given to the English horse all he can give, and that it is on the whole safer to adhere to the highest bred Eng lish stock, rather than risk its degener acy by any inferior mixture. Our blood horses, therefore, come directly from England, and it is rather odd that the King's stables, while there was a King and lie had stables, furnished the high est priced horses for republican Ameri ca. Of the comparative estimation of the English and Arabian horse, we have lately seen a striking example. The Imaum of Muscat sent to the Pres ident of the I nited States two Arabian horses, which, from tho character of the giver, we arc bound to presume, were of the highest class. These horses were sold at public auction, and no one could be found to give more fur them than six hundred and fifty dollars for one, and six hundred and seventy live or tne oiner. ow, in tne same ncign orhood where these were sold, arc very spirited breeders, who would not buy these Arabians at even so low a rate, but w ho had actually bought from the stables of the King of England, at the price of twenty fire thousand dol- ars, a lavonte horse, Priam, one ot whose colts is in iho exhibition hero ; even as between the English breed und our own, the impression on this side of the water is, that lor some time past the tendency of English breeding is rather to encourage speed than bottom that their horses are becoming leggy, and that the descendants of the English stock, in this country, have more endu rance, more bottom for long heats than their ancestors. The question, when ever it is tested will be decided perhaps by a few seconds. This stylo of horse, although the use to which he is gener AND SHAMOKIN JOURNAL. major, y, the vital principle of Repubhcs, from which S,...b,.ry, Northumberland Co. ally applied is out of the way of the far mer, is vet verv intorestinrr n r. i . ' i ,. . ins goou qualities an come down thro' the interior races; and the Godolphin Arabian, to which the English horse owes much of his superiority, was ac tuallv a cart horse in Paris. Our ordinary race of farm horses is extremely good. I he w armth and va riahleness of the climate have settled down the stiff and heavy frame of the European horse, and given us a race of quick, alert animals, admirably fitted to scrona tne activity ot the tanner him self. So with respect to Cattle, wc have almost every variety, and the best of all the varieties. The emiVrants often bring their best and favorite animals : the passenger vessels brine cows to give milk during their voyages, and be then profitably sold here, ami these are generally of "the highest kind; com merce imports from every quarter, the animals w hich will pay best, and arc therefore the best at home ; and spirited breeders have gone into the English markets and brought over some of the highest priced animals. Tne result is. it wc have a great accumulation of stock of every description. There arc the Aldei neys, w ith their rich milk, it self a cream Tho Ayrshircs, copious givers of milk strongly inclined to but ter, with forms fitted for the butcher. The Devons, an ancient raVe, brought :j.v the first settlers of New Eii'dand. and indicating their descent by their re semblance to the improved Devons, with which our stock has been of kite years abundantly recruited. Fitted, by their milkiness, lor ihe dairy : bv their delicate flesh, for the knife; by their lutckncss, for the plough, they claim to ie second to no other race : and if se. cond to any, only to the short horned Durham, which is so familiar to us all as to require no description, which un doubtedly now unites the greatest mn. of suffrages in its favor, of easy fatten ing, of early maturity, and of excellent food, more than any other race of horned cattle. Of Shff.i' too, wc have all the varie ties. The I.eiccister, with their early fitness for the knife, and their large carcasses and large wool; the Merino, for its smaller yield of rich wool; the Southdow n, cxci llatit for both wool and carcase; and, finally, we have a less known breed coming into reputation ; it is the Tunisian or broad tailed sheep, originally sought mainly for the carcass, but. having proved itself very hardy, well acclimated, when crossed by other breeds, so as to acquire a finer wool, it may become a standard stock among us. Nor are we less favored in SuixK We have all the breeds: among others peculiarly our own, is what is called the Chester county breed and the Berkshire breed, just coming into great and deserved estimation among us. And even the common breeds that run about, without knowing their extraction, are often admirable, I remember well that the Pennsylvania Quaker farmer, Jacob Brown, Com mander-in-Chief ol the American Armv during the last war, told me how much lie was struck by the beauty of the hogs which he saw running about Philadel phia and I have since often had occa sion to admire them. Of all these various animals we have specimens now before us which we may all examine, and, if wc desire it, obtain them at reasonable rates, and no one can doubt the real economy to a farmer of possessing these improved breeds. An inferior animal takes as much trouble and as much food as a good one, and then the care and the eHnse are often thrown away upon cattle that will give neither m'ilk nor beef. How- many stunted milk cows do we see who may be said to go dry all the year round how many steers who, after emptying a whole coin crib, at last, in the spring, look like the crib itself, all ribs without, and all hollow in side, lint crossing and training have created animals w ho turn at once into milk or beef every thing we put into them who give plenty of milk if you want milk, plenty of fat if you desire beef, and who, coming earlier into the dairy or the market, save a whole year's expense of leeding. I hoe, inerciore, that wc may profit by the present opportunity of improving our siock, and encouraging the spirited breeders w ho place the means of doing a in our power.
