On subjects connected with Agriculture, to include
an Emigrants' Department, containing such in
formation as may be useful to persons making a
settlement in the West, or seeking new fields of
agricultural enterprise.
THE SUB8CRIDER proposes to issue a
L monthly shed, in quarto form, of sixteen pa
ges, on husbandry, pastoral affairs, and kindred
subjects :—a portion of the paper to he occupied
with notices geographical, statistical and historical
of such portions of tin* Wcst fi.s will of most in
(••rest to Western settlers, and also of portions of
the South.
Agriculture is the most ancient occupation of
man. It is also the most useful, the most indepen
dent, the happiest, the most healthy, the most pro
fitable and the most honorable.
But this is not all. Agriculture comprehends in
itself more scienee, than any other occupation In
the whole circle of human pursuits and industry.
Geology, chemistry, vegetable physiology, all make
a part of the thorough "knowledge of this most ex
tensive and useful art. They are indeed but the
beginnings of the vast field of knowledge contain
ed within it. So that if a man can he a thorough
agriculturist, he will be in the large sense of the
word a learned man.
Farmers however have been, to a great extent,
opposed to wbat they called science, or hook-farm
ing, from a mistaken idea that whatever was in
print was merely speculative, and matter of theory.
If it were so indeed, they would be right in con
demning it. It is however a mistaken idea. Sci
ence is the result of experience and practice. It is
"the ripe harvest of fat ts, reaped not by one man in
one field, but gathered by all the laborers through
out all the harvest fields of the earth in year after
year from the beginning.
Every intelligent tanner likes to talkto hisnrigh
nr, and draw advantage from his experience.—
This cxprriencc is no less valuable for bcin"- de
livered to him in print, by types, than if it should
he given to him by his neighbor, by word of mouth.
It is the same thing.
Skill in the manual of hoeing and ploughing ran
never make a. farmer. It makes only an apprentice
in the art. Since the multiplication of agricultu
ral papers and societies in this country, there hns
been a great improvement In the state of agricul
It is designed to give jn thin paper all useful gen
eral intelligence relating to rural affairs anti econ
omy, whether of implements, storks, seed*, modes
of culture.articles of cultivation, soils, or fertilizers;
and such discoveries of science ns may assist, light

orable toil of the farmer.
A secondary object will be to give information to
person* making settlement in the West ; from per
sons! knowledge mostly so that they will be able
to make Judicious selections, and proceed in the c>
tablishingof their new homes to best advantage,
and some description of the lands of Maryland and
Virginia, with the inodes of renovating them.
The price will be one dollar, invariably in ad

X MAGNETIC FLUID.—This remarkable dis
covery has received the universal approbation of
the Medical Profession of Great Britain, and has
been sufficiently long before the American public
to give a fair trial of its power and efficacy. The
PA f LN 1 GALV ANIC RINGS have Ihjou found to
answer all the purposes for which ordinary Galvan
ic Battery or Electric and Magnetic Machines are
used, but arc without any of Uie injurious shocks
which accompany tlie applications by those instru

and certain in accomplishing the desired object.
The Galvanic Rings have been used with perfect
success in all cases ol Rheumatism, acute or chron
ic, applying to the head, face or limbs ; Gout, Tic
Dolorcux. Toothache, Bronchitis, Vertigo, Nervous
or Sick Headache, Indigestion, Paralysis, Palsy,
Epilepsy, Fits, Cramp, Palpitation of the Heart,1
Apoplexy, StifTnessof Joints, Lutnbagi^Neuralgia, 1
General Debility, Deficiency of Nervous Energy,
and all Nervous Disorders. In cases of confirmed
Dyspepsia they have been successful. Their extra
ordinary effects upon flic system must b« witnessed
to be believed; and as a oert&in preventive for
the above complaints they are equally to he recom
mended. I ho Galvanic Rings are in every way
perfectly harmless, and are sold at prices to be
within the reach of all. Cristib’s Magnetic Fluid
is used in connection with the Rings, to render
their efficient action certain, and to direct the Gal
