aching Melancholy cannot be surpassed :

They all am dished for that.

And the vimen folks look blue,
For they can't chat over coffee, Jim,
An' don't know vot they'll do.

And toddies werry muchp romotc'a
Tons powers of conwersation.

And celestials stop our tea ! Straws.
Farming in Vermont. Gov. Hill states in
Ms Visiter,' that Ezra Meech who resided on
the shore of Lake Champlain above Burlington,
nnrl Willlnm Tim's nf W-n-i,!. 1.1
Claremont, on Connecticut River, are the two
largest farmers in the State of Vermont. The
first gentlemen has from five to eight hundred
seres 01 wneat in a season : and the latter Ins
Hundreds of imported cattle, and his many hun
dred sheep on one of ihe most beautiful alluvial
tracts upon thefertlie valley of the Connecticut.
Judge Meech made his wealth it is said exclu
sively by farming. He commenced with the
first settlement in Vermont, and used, while
clearing his lands for a crop, to go ahead,
by hunting furs up the Union and Otto rivcrS,
in seasons when he could not conveniently
work on his lands.
William Jarvis is a native of Boston, he resi
ded several years in Lisbon as consul, and while
there, introduced the merino sheep into this
country,thc exportation of which was prohibited
by Spain and Portugal. Some time after his
return, he purchased the estates now composing
his ample domain ; and for the last twenty years
had steadily pursued the ocenpation of a far
mer. Near the latter, on the New Hampshire side
of the river, resides his kinsman, Dr. Leonard
Jarvis, one of the most extensive farmers of
that State. He has for several years been en
gaged in the wool growing, and at a single sale
has taken as much money for fine wool of his
own clip as would purchase the price of one of
the largest farms in the State.
Cattle. The form of animals attracted the
attention of an eminent surgeon, Henry Cline,
of London. The following is the substance of
the doctrine he lays down. That the external
form is only the indication of the internal struc
ture ; that the lungs of animals is the first ob
ject to be attended to, for on their size and
soundness the health and strength of an animal
principal!- depend that the external indication
of the size of the lungs, are the form and size
of ihe chest, and its breadth in particular; that
the head should be small, as by this the birth is
facilitated ; as it affords other advantages in
feeding, &,c . and it generally indicates that the
animal is of a good breed ; that the length of the
neck should be in'proportion to the'sizeof theani-
mai, mat n may collect us looa witn ease; and
that the muscles and tendons should be large,
by which an animal is enabled to travel with
greater facility. It was foniCrly the practice to
estimate the value of animals by the size ot
their bones. A large bone was considered to
he a great merit ; a fine boned animal always
implied great size. It is known now that this
document was carried 100 far. The strength of i
the animardues not depend on the bones, but
on the muscles ; and when the bones are dis
proportionally large, -it indicates in Cline's o
pinion, tin imperfection in the organs of nutri
tion. Blakewell strongly insists on the advan
tage of small bones, and the celebrated John
Hunter declared, that small bones were always
'attended with corpulence in all the various sub
jects he had an opportunity of examining. A
small bone, however, being heavier and more
substantial, requires as much nourishment as a
hollow one with a large circumference.
Eloquence. The following is an extract

perhaps, with the saying that "the
course or true love never doth run

commanded the Hessian mercenaries
in 1776. This officer, a rigid martin

much more of geography. On the

he passed some of the transports. At

Bad is the Best. Mr. Horace

at the Sussex Institution, Brighton,
took occasion to point outthe necessity
of being content with one's lot illus

" a remarkably cool and philosophic
person, was lately traveling to London
at a moment when he was laboring
under a very severe cough which was
extremely distressing to himself, and
also proved a great annoyance to his
fellow-passengers, till at last an old
gentleman ensconced in the corner

and unwavering advocate of the principles and
doctrines of the democratic party, delineated by
the illustrious 'Jkfferson : the right of the peo
ple to think, to speak, and to act, independent

sible to no power for the free exercise of this
right, but their God, their Country, and her
Laws, which they themselves have created.
A free and untrammelcd Press, conducted in a
spirit worthy of our institutions, is a public bles
sing, a safeguard to the Constitution under which

designed to make the paper now estab

and faarless stand against the evidently increas

course, to remove those barriers whioh section

have reared to mar the social relations of men
without accomplishing any paramount good.

advocak; and support the schemes of any par
ticular set of men. It will speak independent
ly on all State and National Questions, award
inn to each that support which its merits may
demand, never hesitating, however, to condemn
such measures, as in the opinion of the editor is
ustly warranted, holding as a first principle :
" The greatest good lo the greatest number?
Believing that the great principles of democ
racy are disregarded by the present Chief Ma
gistrate of the Nation, Martin Van Burex,
decidedly, but honorably oppose his re-election
to the high and responsible station which he
now holds.
It will firmly oppose the " Independent Trea
sury" Scheme, and all other schemes having
for their object tbe concentration in the hands"
of one man, and that man the President of the
Nation, all power over the public moneys, a
power, which, when combined with that vest
ed in him by the Constitution as Commander-
in-Chief of the American forces, Military and
Naval, together with an enormous official pa
tronage, would render him more powerful than
the Executive of the British Nation, and in
short make our Government, dc facto an Elec
tive Monarchy.
It will ever maintain that the welfare of our
Country and the preservation of her Republican
Institutions should be the first and only senti
ments of our hearts in the choice of our public
servants : that honesty, fidelity, and capability,
are the only true tests of merit ; that all men
are created equal, and, theroiore, should alike
enjoy the privileges conferred on them by the
Constitution without being subject to proscrip
tion, or coerced bv the influence of party.
The columns" of the JEFFERSONIAN
REPUBLICAN will ever be open to the free
discussion of all political questions, believing
as we do, that there is no liberty where both
sides may not be heard, and where one portion

Since the Dublication of the number for INTm-pm.

leave a considerable number on hand for subse-

that he will thus bo enabled to supply all the de

upon his magazine, and at the same time he begs
to assure the readers of the Ladies' Companion,
that it is determined resolution to meet it with a
