"The farmer must acquaint himself with the principles nf bis art. Its foundatun is laid in K-novvleilge, and its successful practice depends upon individual skill. Of late years thu scien ces have hid open vast resources for the farmer. Geology, llilany, and especially Chemistry, havo already taken rapid steps towards revolu tionizing tho practice of agriculture. It no Ion gor answers fijr a man lo quote his lather ns the best authority. We must go higher now nnd follow the laws of Natukc. Lit us tint be tin. dersto'id to ire?n that every fanner must become aVheinist In the strict sense of tho term, al though to a roit.iin degree he must bo one. lie is a practical chemist already, and he should be .1 .1...1 . .l.,t i. l,n .l,n,,1.1 in a measure a incoiciiuai uni.-, ni - i- bo a reasoning man in respect to the operations he carries on. Ho should ho ablo lo see the cause when a certain effect is produced, and to understand why the various processes which he follows are necessin-, and what are wrong and what aro nht. This does not involve neces saril" an acquaintance with all Iho technica' terms of scence terms i.ovv so much the dread of tho uneducated farmer; but ho should understand the names of tliinis lie uses, and not ask the chemist who labors for his benefit to perforin hi Impossibility of finding names for substances which a mm can comprenonu wun out finding them out. "Dut it is not, after all, the names which most conrern tho tanner, although, in order to bo rational one. ho must understand them. The substances themselves aro what ho is inlercsted in, and their application in his business. He oti"ht to untlcrntand the relative value of diller ent manures and their ndaptedncss lo particular soiU or crops ; tho preparation, improvement and nnnageineni oi inanures in iiruer iu si - enrt. - Ihelr hl"best eireel ; thn composition of smls and plants and flic effects produced by tho latter growing in tho former to exhaust them and render them unproductive : in fine, ho must litiow the whole relations nf tho vegetable, mill, oral and animal world. The farm should bo re garded an nut-door laboratory, where every pro cess is regulated by rule as strict as the chemist obeys in bis. If wo should stop to givo instan ces to substantiate tlio value uf this kind of knowledge, wo should soon fill a volume j for thcro is no process in the whnlo art that would not bear us nut. Therefore wo need not do it. Wo are well aware of Iho prcjndiro which has heretofore existed against book-fanning a pro. jpdico which is rapidly disappearing, and which was ll:o child of ignorance. "H cannot bo possiblo that agriculture alone of all the arts must stand aloof from tho aids of fercd by science. All other industrial occupa tions owe their elevation and imporlanco to it And what may not faruii:'g bo when Iho farmer, in tho full realization nf the dignity of his calling, becomes ib'o thoroughly informed man lie ought to bo; and there is no sufiicient reason why any man In this country should bo Ignorant of all the improvements that havo been made in agricul ture, and equally true is it that, knowing them, there is no reason why ho should not put them in practice. We aro a reading people ; we min glo with eacli other; what one does is seen and known by all. The distinction of classes is on. ly nominal, and, in all that pertains to live com- B II R L I N V, T ON. mon (jonil, nil moot ono common ground llio interchange of thoughts and views is froo as tlio air wo breathe. l lio moans ol at nulrin knowledge aro cheap am) aliundint, and In cvo ry man's power. 1 say again, there Is no reason why any man should not bo woll informed In al! that enncorns his business, ltut, bofjro all aro so, the lnrricrs rniml by prejudice nnd early training must bo broken down, ami lint pitn arclial respect for old rustom3 anJ old usages and oM wnys must bo done away. "A few years ago, farming was regarded r.s little belter than a menial service, and thu far. mir was looked upon as little elevated abivo llio serf or the slave. It was forgotten that ag. ricultiirc, the manufacturing and llio cominir. cial interests, were all inseparably counerted in thu prosperity uf the btato or, rather, in tho words of another, "th it the land anil tho o.vncrs, and tho cultivators of the land, form tho primary essentials and tho mercantile and manufactur ing establishments the nccidon'al adjuncts of our State; and that the ruin of tho solid walls and foundation of tho stupendous fabric of tho great est nation upon eartli would involve in one com inon destruction its richest appendages and most ornamental decorations." No country can, and this country especially cannot, foster t03 fondly its agricultural interests. It is now, and must continue to be, our tntioinl wealth ; an.! this is, at tho prosont time, eminently tho direction of public fcolirig. To whatever causo in may ho attributed whether lo tho wish to be free from llio anxieties and cares and insecurity of com mercial life to tho greater security of the landed interests whether tothosa selfish con- sidoratiun--, or tho return of a healthy Malo of ! moral feeling urging tho coiviction of tho holier I and happier infl ioncu of rural pursuits upon thernsehes and their children to whichsoever of tho.'o circumstances it is attributed, it is a gratifying fact tint tinny wealthy and intelligent men a:o forsaking the large cities and devoting themselves to agriculture." UPS AND DOWNS IN LIFE. It is useful as well us interesting lo nolo the changes fur belter or worse, which ten or fifteen years serve to operate in a com innnily. I know a business man on Main street who was refused credit in 18!10, for a stove worth twelve dollars, liu is now director in one of llio buthis, and is worth loO.OOO dollars nt least. I'.veiv cent of this has been made in Cincinnati during that period. 1 know another business man, also on Mam street, who was retuseil croilit in lo'2i.

I know a man whose credit in 1S30, was surh that when 1 trusted Iiim for a keg of llpetre, my employer told me I might as ell Imvo rolled it in the Ohio. Since tint peiiod he was worth in 1837 ono hundred tliniisand dollars, again a bankrupt in IS 11, and now worth 20,000 dulhus. know a man good for 30,000 dollars, who ten years ago exhibited a oioiikoy tluo' iho streets of Cincinnati, fur a living. 1 know a heavy business man, a b ink di rector, who sold apples in a basket when a bov, through Ihe streets, I know one of tho first merchants in our , ! iM-, ,vl,,i ennbl ii ilin iieiioil hive' uty in IS-.), ,,. coidil . t lb t n il. . bought entire blocks of llio city on credit, ii director in ono of the hanks, who within ten years of that period, died insolvent and in tempeiate. Another influential man of th.it day, whoso credit was unlimited, being president of one uf our insurance comp inies ami also a bulk director, died within five years; insolvent and intemperate. Another individual, wdio was considered in 1S37 wortli h ilf a million of dollars, has died since, leaving tho estate insolvent. Another individual of credit equal In nil his wants, and wortli al ono time, 12,000 dollars, and a Judge of the Court, died in our city hospital, and was buried at the pub lic expenses. I havo seen him unco and again presiding at public meetings. Thu founder of the Penitentiary system, in Pennsylvania, and well known in that Statu and elsewhere as a public in in, died a n inner in thu Gummercia!

I knuw a lady, who, thirty years ngo, in the city in which I limn lived, was the cyn osure of all eyes, ono of the most graceful and liiMtilif.il of the sex, and moving in the firsl circles of wealth and fashion, now en gaged in drudgery and dependence, at oini dull ir und fifty cunts per week.

A woman followed her, bringing fire and wood, with which she lit a file and lien retired, Tho young messenger was hi ailed with a bottle of wine, and thu wing of a fowl, wrapped up in a piecu of newspaper.

To lliu strnuner she eppoared nothing elso than n charming and niysterinus vision. Who could llns young creature be, who s.) earnestly and effectively devoted Ion work of charily, when her attire gavo every indication of pri vation and penury 1 Culd us the weather was, thu bonnet which encircled hut delicate mid beautiful features was uf black straw ; tho silk gloves mended in several places, served tu cover her Ii mds nut certainly nut to guarantee them from iho cold.

Thu young man won d undoubtedly have been struck ttv thu extreme beauty of Iiur features had ihoru been no other charm lo attract him ; but th.iro was about her th it indescribable some Ihing which pleases morn th in meru beauty and that is, a union of goodness and ele gance, which is, indeed,, but seldom to met with, but when seen is irresistible. At last her telf-imposed task w.is over -she ap- proaclied tho old man, and stooping duwiij towardi him, noddud bur head kindly as ihol uttered the words, ' I will soon return.'

Mackanitta was one of the most gracetul and eloquent youim warriors I ,Ji "io vyJ "uewii I ot tno lij liueway t ritie. Indeed he was celc- btcd for his dignity and grace, and attention to Ins person. When about twenty years of ago he accompanied a war party of his country men on an expedition agauirt a liustde tribe ot Indians, and stopped a few days at Mackinac. A steamboat with many ladies on board, arrived at Mackinac at tho time, and Mackawitta, with some of his friend.-, attracted by curiusity, went on board. His remarkably fine foim and intel ligent features immediately attracted the atten tinn of the pasengers ; and one of the ladies, in a sportive mood, took a ring froni het own auu placed it on bis finger. .Miekavvitta knew not what to think of this act, until a gentleman on board, who spoke his uu n language, informed him that a ring was a token of alien ion. Pla cing himself in a graceful attitude, he immedi ately addressed the lady as follows : " Ynu havo conferred the best gift this ring emblem uf love of luvo that endures while the Great Spirit endures. My heart is touched it is your' forever. I will preserve Ihis ring whilo I live I will bear it with me over Iho mighty waters, to the land of good spirits.

Dr. Beech er, in an adJr.-ss lately reported in the Cincin nati, Chronicle, stales the following facts: ".Some yeais since, I visited the Philadelphia. Asylum. In reluming from the apartments, I stw a man standing fixed immovable like a pillar. I asked who that was. It was the son uf Ur. Uusl i, wau killed a man in a duel. There he stood like a pillar. Sometimes ho would apparently wake up to recollection ; ho would paco utTthe distance, and give the word, 'Fire!' I'lieu cry nut, 'He is dead ! he is dead !' This was the power of conscience. It had unsettled reason, "In my early ministry, I was called In attend neighbor, at l'ist Hampton, L. I. lie was sceptical and in eniperale.
