THE SUBSURI HER pn •poses to issue a
.1. monthly sheet, in. quarto form, of sixteen pa
ges, on husbandry, pastoral affairs, anil kindred
subjects:—a portion ol the paper to he. occupied
with notices geograp hieal, statistical and historical
of such portions of t'ne West as will he of most in
terest to Western 9 cittern, and also of portions of
the South.
Agriculture is tl ic most ancient occupation of
tnun. It is also the most useful, the most indepen
dent, the happiest, the most healthy, the most pro
fitable and the in or it honorable.
But this is not a II. Agriculture comprehends in
itself more scicue c, than any other occupation in
the whole circle .f human pursuits anrl industry.
Geology, chcinis'iry, vegetable physiology, all make
ti part of the tho rough knowledge of this most ex
tensive and useful art. They are indeed but the
beginning* of t he vast field of knowledge contain
ed within it. Jo tli it if a man can lie a thorough
agriculturist, 1 io will be in tlie large sense of the
word a learned man.
Farmers h< twever have been, to a great extent,
opposed to w’nnt they called -science, or book-farm
ing. from a mistaken idea that whatever was in
print was m ercly speculative, and matter of theory.
If it were io indeed, they would be right in coh
demningit. It is however a mistaken idea. Sci
ence is the result of experience and practice. It is
the ripe h irvcst of fat Is, reaped not by one man in
one field, hut gathered by all the laltorers through
out all tb e harvest fields of the earth in year after
year fro>,ri the beginning.
E very intelligent farmer like* to talk to his nrig'n
or, and draw advantage from his experience._
Tins experience is no lr»s valuable fur being de
liverer t to him in print, by typ. s, than if it should
be giv en to him by his neighbor, by word of mouth.
It is t ho same thing.
hk ill in the manual of hoeing anrl ploughing ran

in t lie art. Since the multiplication of agricultu
ral papers anrl societies in this country, there has

1 to re.
It is designed to give in this paper all useful gen
e ral intelligence relating to rural affairs and econ
< uny, whether of implements, storks, seeds, modes
of culture, articles of cultivation. Soils, or fertilizer*}
nnd such discoveries of seizure ns in.«y assist, light
ten snd make more profitable Ihe hardy and hon

A secondary object will he to give information to
persons making settlement in the West: from per
•onal knowledge mostly - sothit they will be able
to make judicious selections, am) proceed in the es
tablishing of their new homes to best advantage,
and some description of the lands of Maryland and
