After being introduced, Mr. Martin said: "I am willing to say what I can for the benefit of those af flicted as I have been. For years I have been a ter rible sufferer from kidney and bladder difficulties. Mine being of the calculous or stony form. I have visited all the mineral springs whose waters have been recommended to me by the best medical author ities, l nave tried every Known remedy, and have submitted to several operations, and have tried ev ervthiue that money could obtain in the way of re lief, but I find that Dr. Kennedy's FA VOMITS KEM- ,DX isthe best medicine ot all mv experience-rj While the Man WhOn-TakS sjour Um have received more benefit from it." It .is certainly a 1 1 n i n ' . , . " , , . , wonderfnl medicine for diseases of this kind. I hive recommended FAVOK1TJS REMEDY to others in the city of Springfield whom I knew to have. suffered from Kidney and Liver complaints ; and, I assure the public, that the favorite remkdt has ;done its work with a similar completeness in every siDgle in- stance, and I trust some other sick and discouraged mortal raay hear of it and try the 'Favorite remedy' as l aid." Dr. David Kennedy's FAVORITE REMEDY is not a oisguisea enemy ot the human race ; where it can not neip, it aoes not uarm. davuiutk kjs.ueux is a combination of vegetable alteratives. It does not heat nor inflame the blood, but cool and purifies it. in an cases 01 lvmaey troubles, .Liver complaints. Constipation of the Bowels, and the delicate derange ments that afflict women, the action of FAVORITE RE 3d ED V is beyond prais. Thousands of erateful people voluntarily testify to this in letters to Dr. Ken nedy : ana with a waruuii and tiulnees or words which mere business documents and Certificates never pos ses.

Dr.Loring commenced by saying that in a certain sense Connccticat stood foremost among agricultural communities, We are told that when 70 per cent, of the peopl are engaged m agriculture the annual earnings of each person are $161 per an nuin : when 20 per cent, are engaged the annual earniDgs of each person are $450 per annum. To this last elas3 belongs Con necticut, abounding in carefully cultivated iarms, nerds ol valuable cattle, great local markets, aud everything necessary to the intelligence and prosperity of the commun lty. From this the speaker passed to a consid eration ol, agriculture as a national indus try, He recognized the fact that it lies at tne lomidation oi state and societv in eve ry country.and especially in our own,where tor many years it was almost our onlv m dustry, supplying us with our revenue and feeding and clothing the strong men who gave us our nationality. It was a cluster of agricultural colonies which secured our independence. The citizen proprtetora of the soil of America have learned to defend their rights, and they struck for freedom long before the associate industries had gained a foothold on these shores. It was the "embattled farmer," the poet tells us who"nred the shot heard round the world. And having laid the foundation of our re pnblic, they pursued their calling with dil lgence and success, and gave us a strong aud honorable community, renowned for courage, honor, integrity, and fidelitv, It was this almost universal iudustry.connect ed with small commerce, which enabled an economical and prudent people to set an example of financial honor which has not yet been forgotten. When Mr. Jefferson closed his career as president of theUnited Estates, he was congratulated bv the legisla ture of Virginia, through the mouth of the illustrious William Wirt, that he had suc ceeded m paying $30,000,000 of the nation, al debt. The power to do this came large ly from the land. Manufactures had no ex istence. The rivers washed down their falls and rapids unhindered to the sea". Cot ton manufactures were unknown. Woolen cloth was woven by the industrious moth- "11 4 n i i eis ana sisters on looms ior which a room was always provided in the well organized household. 1 lax was grown and linen made But neither manufactures nor the mechanic arts gave employment to our people, nor revenue to the state. The power oi the na tion consisted in the stout hearts of the farmers, aud the wealth of the nation the successful application of their skill the soil. TheY farmed under creat advan tages, it is true. The soil was fertile, and the harvests were ereat. In mv own state. in fact in my county of Essex.so famed for early and late activity and industry, one of ine most reliable, powerful and f aithf u, statesmen and soldiers of the revolution Timothy Pickering, tells us that in his day the soil yielded to the acre 28 bushels of wheat, 117 bushels of corn, 52 bushels of oariey, 51a bushels ot - common potatoes 900 bushels of carrots, 1,034 bushels of mangelwurzel,632 bushelsSwedish turnips. 106 bushels wheat, 654 bushels onions, 30 tons of hay grown on 6 acres,and the year ly average oi lorty acres tor many years was more than 120 tons. To the fertile lands of the west these crops may not seem eALi nummary, dui to tne east they were, and are far beyond what can now be reach ed by the most skillful fertilizing and the highest cultivation. In our own day the sou may nave lost its lertihty, industries may have multiplied, the paths to wealth and comfort may have become more and more varied, but agriculture holds its for- mer place still,and taxes our ingenuity and secures prosperity. In the great trials that have beiallen the generation, trials in which not only the wisdom of . the wise, but the fruits of the industrious are needed to sus tain and develop the country which thejval or or the faithful saved from ruin, the wealth which has been drawn from the son haa enabled us to maintain our finan cial honor and solve manv a vexed financial problem. The position held by us in the commerce of the world was watched with interest and anxiety during all those vears in which the power of our people to bear the great war debt was a matter of oainful doubt. At the close of the war the finan cial tacts of our country were against us, Gold was at a premium. Our exports were comparatively small. The balance of trade was against us, and our supply -of gold was constantly drawn on to pay our foreign bills. Then it was that the most thought ful and patriotic American citizen turn! to the growing industries of the countrv for the solution of the financial question, which was so universally discussed, and so seriously considered. JNotto our vast rev- enues alone did we turn, but to that pro ducmg power of our people which might find a foreign market and fix exchange in our favor. The men who had fought brave ly now toiled diligently, and ere long ex ports increased rapidly, gold was removed as a commodity irom the market, the bal ance of export was in our favor, and the American people ranked among the large importing nations oi the earth. The solu tion oi our financial policy had begun.and it has been continued until we are of one heart and one mind on this all important question, unce more has agriculture con tnbuted a vast share of that which has been sent into the markets of the world. As in the early days of the republic, so iu our day,has the soil enriched and support ed our people. Besides feeding lavishly fifty millions of people, the agriculture of the country has continued to supply a large amount of our exports of domestic merchandise. In 1880 the exports from this country rose in oue year from $635, 042,078 to $883,815,941, and of this vast sum agriculture furnished $724,489,413. or 81.06 per cent, of the whole amount. . The imports amounted to $667,954, 736, leaving a balance of $215,961,195. The effect of this contribution to our export trade is in calculable, and it has done much towards restoring us to that financial stability and prosperity and honor'of which as a nation we ought to be proud.and for which every prosperous man ought to be so grateful that 1 turn with pride and satisfaction to the record that American agriculture has made for itself. But not only are the years of agricultural prosperity instructive, but the bad seasons also teach.us a lesson which we should not forget, Last year the great crops.of 1880 were largely reduced, and the change in our commercial affairs was strike ing and significant.

In 1870 the amount of In dian corn raised in this country was 708, 944,549 bushels ; in 1880 1.754,449,000 bu shels. In 1870 the .wjieat crop amounted to 287,745,626 bushels ; in 1880, 459,667, 643 bushels. In 1870 the oat crop amount ed to 282,107,157 bushels ; in 1880 to 407, 859,033 bushels. In 1870 the tobacco crop amounted to 262,735.341 pounds ; in 1880 to 473,107,573 pounds. The increase of agricultural products was large and univer sal,amounting in many instances to a hun dred per cent. And in the last year of thii decade, from 1879 to 1880, out of this vast increase of products our cattle exports rost from $13,000,000 to $14,000,000 ; com from $43,000,000 to $50,000,000 ; wheat from $167,000,000 to 190,000,000; flour from $35,000,000 to $45,000,000 : cotton from $209,852,000 to $205,531,530, ; beef from $7,000,000 to $13,000,000 ; lard from $20, 000,000 to $35,266,000 : and pork from $5,000,000 to $8,000,000. This unusual and extraordinary prosper ity is due undoubtedly to many causes.nat urol and artificial, the natural causes being our diversity of soil aud climate, and the variety of our. crops, and the economy with which our new and fertile lands can be cultivated ; the artificial causes being the advantages of local and general maiv kets and the relations established between the farmer and the soil he cultivated by the independent ownership of land under the laws of our country. To this last cause may be attributed much of that elasticity and energy which the American farmer manifests in occupying new land, aud th cultivation of crops adapted to the market which they can reach. It were not easy to tell the strength and stimulus which cama through the owner ship of the soil, to him who occupies it, has fixed his horns upon it, and looks to it as his means of subsistence. It is to the division and subdivision of the land, al most as much as to their devotion to the institutions of learning and their deter mination to secure all social and civil rights, that our fathers owe their success iu establishing free government on this continent. They had the Anglo Saxon love of individual independence, and land mono olies, entail and primogeniture were especially odious to them. They establish ed in the earliest colonial days a system of land-holding so simple, so exact, so easily managed that it has become the example which all republican governments follow. They established a public registry of deed, and provided for an easy and reoorded transfer of lauded estates from hand to hand, as easy as the transfer of personal property. The state which they formed became not only the home of civil and re ligious freedom, but of small landed pro prietors also. When they struck for free dom they struck for the sacred right of their own homes, which had become scat tered throughout the length and breadth of the land, and were the nurseries of a hardy, independent, sturdv race of nuii- tans in religion and roundheads in politics They were indeed the lords of the soil, and were as unconquerable in their defense of their little farms as the great landed pro prietors of their old homes were in pro tecting their immense estates from inva sion or popular revolution. The fauda tenure of England never gained a foothold here. Hut the commercial tenure which took i(s place gave every prosperous mem oer ot the community aa opportunity to cnitivate his own little kingdom, and to dispose ot or exchange it at his pleasure The temptation to secure land.under these circumstances, becomes irresistible. The mechanic labored to secure his homestead; the merchant was never satisfied until he had purchased a farm with the surplus profit of his commercial adventures. The professional men of the day the lawyers the clergymen, the physicians all owned and cultivated their land, which they were proua to occupy. And with the American system, as it has been called, a system wmcn tne English relormers have advo cated, and promised the English people. went a multitude of civil rights, and privi- ieges,ana opportunities, which were never i i . . . lost sight ot by those who made up and supported and organized the community. lha occupants and owners of the farms were the pillars of the church ; they filled tne town omces ; they took, their places in the legislature, and made laws for the commonwealth : they took part in thf town meeting with its stormy debate and its tree ballot ; they aspired to high offices auu exercised tne rignt oi beating, and be ing beaten,at the polls.

" which required of them and requires of us also, a liberal expenditure both of pub. lie and private necessities and luxuries In a Qommunity founded as they founded theirs, taxes must necessarily be somewhat neavy ; personal expenses must be some what large ; the advancement of home must be provided for ; the public enter tainments will be enjoyed : the children must be well clad, provided with books and supplied with a good education. And this is the American system of land-hold. ing with all its duties, privileges and op portunitiesa system which the states men of the Old World study with profound interest and great care. It maybe attend ed by a great deal of careless and unprofit able and unskillful farming, as every sys tem is, but it produces great resultsnrsd is the foundation of great public and pri vate prosperity. J.he agricultural law which governs the management of farms like these is the sup ply of the home, and if possible, a neigh boring market. For the great grain grow ing sections of our more populous and older states, with their commercial and manufacturing cities, furnish, the great bulk of the market.oonsuming 90 per cent of all the agricultural produce of this vast country. - For the smaller farms these same great centers of population furnish n. a market for all local crops, and encourage careful and systematic farming. As our population increases, and the manufactur ing and mechanical industries extend, this latter system of agriculture with all its profits, and its independence of long and expensive Transportation will prevail. While, therefore, the foreign market' nw' sents great temptation, fair profits and the stimulus of commercial enterprise as well as the financial benefits of an interchange of industrial products, it is the markets of our own people which possess the greatest advantages, and lie at the found ur agricultural prosperity.

FROM GOV. WALLER'S ADDRESS. In a brief address I had the pleasure of making a few days' ago at the state fair iu Meriden, I expressed the hope vthat the time would come when, escaping from the cares ot the law and -the turmoils of pol itics, I could flee to a farm of a hundred or so acres, well watered by trout streams and well shaded by trees, and there enjoy the ease and quiet of a well-to-do Connec ticut farmer. In response to this, I have received offers from all parts of the state, at reasonable prices, of just such places, the writers assure me, as my fancy con ceived. But I regret that I am not yet able to accept any of these offers, even the one that bo tempts me from your county ( Oin. 1 -rfc.i.-i -w . . - . .

This ascension was injbrilliant contrast with the one made by me from the same place last year. The weather this time was bright and warm too warm in fact, and the sunshine made everything look beauti- . ful. On the former occasion however the air was gloomy, the clouds lying low and dense, while the strong wind at once blew me out of sight of earth at one gust, and the land we live on was invisible for nearly an hour except one fleeting glimpse which I caught as I flew backword over the fair grounds again. When I finally alighted I found that the earth had been dodging all around here and there, while I had seem ingly stood still in the air. shrouded in a. misty turmoil of angry vapor, which gave me the most unpleasant sensations of alarm and danger that I had ever txneriAn.WI except once, when the balloon, torn open by an eager, and excited crowd of 2,0 u0 people, in the effort to get nearer explod ed in the air at a height of two miles, and let me swing downward through spaca like a meteor, landing safely, however.by steer ing the balloon to the tops of soft fir trees niuuu iLM.un.c? tuc mil.

Skylark rose at about 3.20 p. m., floating a little east of south, while I distributed a shower of little "balloon kites" as souven irs to the crowd, and advertising my little book of iErial Adventures "Slrvlorlrinrr in Cloudland." J a The country over which I passed was unfavorable,being wooded, and ill adapted to a safe landing anywhere. Rising high er to seek more favorable currents, a shiver of the balloon told me that our course was changing, and we swung around to the south, then for the west, and then a little north of west.to roach which last current I threw out half a bag of ballast, which de scended in a light cloud of dust. The bal loon was now lj miles high, and I retained it at that height in order to keep my course for for a time. Later I let out a little gas descending into the current blowing me westward, aud lower down, I again flew a little southward.so that my entire course was a serpentine curve, like a gigantic let ter S, rising and falling, and swinging to right and left at will. I passed the south ern extremity of Crystal Lake, keeping pretty well along the roadway beneath me, and attentively watching a carriage which had left the grounds wnen I did, aad with a gooa norse seemed to be endeavoring to keep up with the balloon. I watched this carriage, but paid most particular attention to the very conspicuous shadow which it cast, and which seemed larger and mere real than the carriage itself. Presently the horse quickened his steps as if his driver were urged by a sudden impulse, and I discovered the cause bv consulting mv barometer, which totd me that I was com. ing down rapidly, and the occupant of the carriage evidently intended to be on hand to witness my landing. As I neared the earth the low ground breeze swept me away over bad woods to mv left, and T vrw again quickly to get away from them. xnen j. planned to go northward and westward, past Shenipsit Lake, and along by Ellington, aud when sufficientlv of that place, to come down and let the ground breeze drift me southward to a n.f landing, all of which scheme was carried out. The people of Ellington were all out to witness my lauding, and I particularly remarked two very nice young ladies vim were waviug their handkerchiefs to me as l saued down over their heads, and landed safely at ubout 4.50 p. m.. after a ciro.nir ous flight of perhaps sixteen miles, and about ten miles from my starting place. Meanwhile the carriage which T woinVio1 had pursued its straight course as I swung to right and left, in the air, and its owner Dr. Warren, was among the others to greet me on landing. Before getting to a safe lauding I was forced to jump up and down in the air several times by letting out sand nnrl gas to escape obstacles, trees, houses, etc., but I finally found a spot which suited my critical taste and the balloon made a plunge for it, my little platform touching the earth on Dr.Patton's place and then rebounding up a few feet till held by a young man.
