The estimated value of tho several farms, at which interest on llie land is to be computed, shall also be determined upon by said commit tee and made known to the applicants a, the ramo time.

Tho cir c.umstances of tho cost of the land lo the owner, proximity lo market, expensive buildings, or other local advantages which might increase the salcableuess of the farm, but which do not materially affect the productiveness of the soil, or llie expense ol cultivation, are not lo bo con sidcrcd.

And so to each and every other department of his farming operations. The funicular form in which such 'account' or 'journal' shall ho kept will not bo regarded as a matter of importance i but the fact that they are regularly and faithfully kept is some form, will ho regarded as indispensable. And it will bo tho duty of the viawing committee at each visit to satisfy themselves by personal ex amination of tho manuscripts, that this rcquisi. lion has beoji complied with.

Uut although the Hoard of Managers deem it prudent to adopt such proviso, it should be sta led that any necessity for the ovorcise thereof, cannot exist, if tho liberality of tho farmers and tin: friends of agricultuic throughout the conn ty, should in any degree correspond with Ihe nportauce ot tho enterprise or with the increas ing interest therein which it is believed is gain ing ground amongst us. The utility and necessity of requiring the va- nous statements respecting farms, crops, ani mals, articles and implement, will be at once apparent when it i.) considered that the exclu sive object for which thu socitty was organized, and for wliii h llie apprnpriatim in aid of Agri culture was made by the Stale, was llie improve ment uf the condition of agrictlturc generally ; and that to effect this, it becomes necessary to convince me larnuug puouc, urstiy, mat im- provenienls are necessary, ant that they can be made, and secondly, by what noans and in what manlier they may bo effected. The first of these may be accomplished by the nnro exhibition of a premium crop or aivmal, butto tender the les sou of any practical uso lo others a statement of tile means which have been successfully cm- ployed is most obviously requned. r aruiers ol Chittenden dimly, it is for you to say whether this society sloJl go forward and accomplish its high object ol eevating tho con dition of our Agriculture to tint degree of emi nence, of which our natural alvanlagcs render it capable, or whether it shall nil or that object. If it bo your pleasure that thesociely shall be sustained, you have only to cone forward and give it your countenance ani support, and it will bo done. Ioiv is ine tim; to make up your minds, llogin iu season, jun the society, and before spring opens, let evry farmer deter mine tu try lor one premium it least. 1 here is no man that docs not excel in one tiling, in that thing let him show his skll, and merit the reward.

" 1 Invc taught him to he a man," continued she, "and he will never dishonor his mother hy so flagrant a neglect of the duties of a fieetnan." Saturday eve ning brought no tidings of the " boy" Sun day passed Monday morning came and the noble-spirited matron started on a trip of sixty or seventy miles, to bring him in timo. Ilo did return, in duo timo, and vo ted. And now can wo do less than tender to this foir fiiend our most profound ac knowledgements, for iho Glh gnm in the diadem of Whig triumphs on Tuesday.

Resolved, That the Whig Tariff of IS 12 now in salutary operation is the Tariff we desire as Vermont protectionists; and that we know of no safer or surer test of Tariff orthodoxy, than friendship for, or opposition to, that tariff. Resolved, That we are not yet so far in igno rance as to be gulled by the grave assertions of the Locofoco papers, incidental protection and discrunicalion for protection, are one and Ihe same thing; and that the best way of making the dis. tinction, is by coininringa horizontal tariff of 20 per cent, advocated by lames K. Polk, with tho present Tariff approved and sustained by Henry Clay.- Resolved, That we regard the policy of dis. tributiiig the proceeds of the sales of the public lands, as part and parcel of the Tariff policy, and as indispensable lo the adequacy and stability ot protection. Resolved, That we deem it the duty of tho General Government to furnish the nation with a national currency, and we leave the mode ol effecting this object to the wisdom of Congress.
