settlement in the \\ est, nr seeking new fields of
ag- iiiiltiiial enterprise.
rl',liE Sf BSC It I !J ER proposes to issue a
-1- monthly sheet, in quarto form, <*f sixteen oa
ges. on hushandrv, pastoral allai.s, an I kind -ed
subjects:—a portion of th • paper in (M-e':[' ed
with notices geographies I, s a ns tie.11 and histon 'al .

teie.-t to W twtei a settlers, ami also ol portions of
the South.
Agriculture is the most ancient occupation of
limn. It is also the most useful, the most indepen
d nt.. the happiest, the m ist healthy, the most pro
litanl** it ml tiie most l.onorahlc.
Rut this is not all. Agriculture comprehends in
m.cit omre science, than any other occupation in
the whole circle of human pursuits and industry.
Geology, chemistry, vegetable plivsiolo v, all make
;i part of the thorough knowle (goof this most ex
tensive and useful art. They arc indeed but the
*■ ginnings of the vast field of knowledge contain
ed within it. So th it if a man ran he a thorough
agriculturist, lie will be in the large sense of the
i word a learned man.
farmers however have been, to a great extent,
; to " hat they called science, or book-farm
i 1,,?> fro,n a mistaken idea that whatever was in
j print w as merely speculative, and matter of theorv.
H it were no indeed, they would be right in cun
, deinning it. It is however a mistaken idea. Sci
ence is the result ol experience and practice. It is
: the ripe harvest ol lu< ts, reaped not t»y one man in
I one field but gathered l>v all the laborers through
j out all the harvest fields of the earth in year uftcr
• year from the beginning.

i \ ,,s rxP' riencc is no has valuable for being dc
! livered to him in print, by types, than if it should
j oe given to him by hi- neighbor, by word of mouth.
! Il is the same thing.
I Skill in the manual of hoeing and ploughing can
j nt ver make a farmer. It mak'-s only an apprentice
in the art. Since the multiplication of ngricultii
ral papers and societies in this country, there has
been a great improvement in the stale of agricul
ture.
it is designed to *rivo in this paper nil useful gan
eral intelligence relating (o rural nfl ties and econ
omy, whether of implements, stork ", seeds, modes
of culture, ariicles <•! cultivation, soils, or fertilisers;
and such discoveries ofseicnee >s may assist, light*
; en and make t.norc profitable the hardy and hon
orable toil of the farmer.
A secondary object will be (ogive information to
persons making settlement in the West: from per
sonal knowledge mostly—so that they will he able
lo ina kc judicious selections, and proceed in the es
tablishing of their new homes to best advantage,
and some desei iption of the lands of Maryland and
Virginia, wiih (lie modes of renovating timm.
