Sinco the Inst publication of the Culli vator, (loath lias abruptly terminated the existence o( its well-known nml respected Editor. lie sank, oftor a brief struggle, beneath a severe illness, which seized him while absent from his 1'omc, and engaged in the pursuit of his favorito occupation. Ho breathed his last, at Datibury, Connoc ticut. on the Oth ultimo, in the sixty-second year of his ago. This sudden bereave ment has called forth sympathy of the cn tiro community; and while others are ex pressing their sense of the common loss, it seems fitting thnt the paper, which ho first established, and in which he delighted to thu last, should furnish some tew memen tos of his usoful life. JESSE DUEL was horn at Coventry. Conn, on the 4th of January, 177!!. In early boyhood ho removed with his parents to Rutland, Vermont, whero became an apprentice to the printing business, in the office of Mr. Lyon. Thcnco he went, at the ago of 18 to the city of New-York, re mained there during the prevalence of tin' yellow fever, bought out his time, and hav fortned a partnership with Mr. Mnffit, it Troy, ho there established the Budget. In 1801, ho married, moved to Pinighkecp 6ic, and commenced the Guardian, after wardB exiled tho Political Barometer. In il'jOS. lid, came to Kingston and established tho Plcbiati. In 1813, he settled perma nently in this city, and commenced the Albany Argus. He continued to edit thai paper and to discharge the duties of Slate Printer, until 1821, when he retired to his farm in the vicinity of this city. Subse quently to this period, ho represented the county for several years in the Assembly of thcStato; received, in 1830, the support of the whig party of New-York, for the offico of Governor : and was, at the time of his death, a Regent of the University. In these soveral stations, ho manifested i eoundness of judgment and a purity of pur pn?i', that won fur him tho respect of all pd'ties, and tho reputation of an eminently honest man- nut these incidental interruptions were nevor suffered to divert his attention, for any length of time, from the great object of his interest, the advancement of ngricul tural science. From the period of his re lirement to his farm, this favorite pursuit engrossed his lime and thoughts. To this ho devoted the energies of nn active and well disciplined mind, and that others might fhare in the fruits of his study and experience, ho established in 1833. the monthly publication which has met with bo much favor from the public. Success crowned theso praiso-worthy and plulan thropic exertions Tho subject of ngricul turn began to attract more general mid enlightened attention. Sister societies sprang up in all directions, zealous in thi" good work, and among the firct r.cti of their official existence, was usually tin1 election of JESSE BUEL as on honorary member. His fame was soon woftcd across tho Atlantic, nnd there, too. stmilcr dis tinclions were showered upon tho man u'Iiobc life otic! labors had been attended with such practical benefits to his country and to the wor d. Thus in 1821, lie was elected an honorary member of tho Mas eachusctts Agricultural Society; in 1820, of the Horticultural Society of thnt state ; in 1830, of the Monroe Horticultural Society r.t Rochester, and of tho Stato Society of Stutistiqucs Untversellcs at Paris; in 1831 , of the Charleston Horticultural So ciely, in South Carolina ; in 1832, of the Hampshire, Franklin and Hampden Society in Massachusetts, and of the Hamilton County Agricultural Society, at Cincinnati in 1833, of tho Tennessco Agricultural and Horticultural Societies ; in 1831, of the Horticultural Society of tho District o Columbia; in 1832, of tho Philadelphia So cietv of Acrriculluro ; and in 1830, ofthc Albemarle Agricultural Socioty. In 182-1 ho was chosen a corresponding member of the London and Now. York Horticultural Societies; in 1833, of the Lower Canada Anricultural Society; in 1830, of tho Royal and Central Society of Agriculture at Pari ; apd in 1830, president of the Horticultural Society of tho Valley of the Hudson. This brief enumeration affords the best evidence of hia devotion to the interesta of agriculture. Of the consideration in which his counsels and instruction woro held, at homo and abroad, tho rapid increase in tho circulation of the Cultivator is eatiefactory Dropf. ilia OWn practical skill was fully " ' ' attested, in the coiiver-inu of thu barren sand hills nn which ho spilled niton g-ir-don .spat of unequalled beauty and fertil'ty. Theso congenial pursuits brought with them that peace of mind, serenity of tem per nnd kindness of disposition, which maJo him in so eminent a degree, the firm friend, the kind neighbor, thu indulgent parent, and the devoted christian. But from the seme of his useful labors--from all these tctidfr tics, he has suddenly passed uwny. Returning springs may give fresh bloom and fragrant blossoms to the plants in his favorite nursery, but the sltil ful hand and tho watchful cyo which cher ished their earliest growth, aro now Un tenants of the tomb. Thu clod of the voile.' envor his last remain; but though no earthly summer can rekindle, with its genial warmth, their vital spark, a heavenly season shall ere long impart to them a new principle of exis'.encc, and the flower which Time destroyed, shall flourish in unfading beauty throughout Eternity.
