Any person wishing lo exhibit his Farm for a premium, shall mako application in writing or otherwise, to one or inoro of the committee- on Farms, betweon tho first of May and tho first of July, for that purpose ; And it shall be tho duty of the committee at such time or times as they may deem most proper, to examine all Farms on which such applications aro made, and mako re. port at the annual meeting aforesaid, of the pre miums awarded ; giving in the mean timo a ronciso description of tho soil, culture, and man. agement nf the Farms, respectively, on which premium arc awarded. In oflbring tho above premium on Farms, it is hoped, that an honorablo compotion may bo excited, for exhibiting the best cultivated lands and it is believed if this be tho case, much valuable information, derived from the skill and experience of our best practical farmers, will bo obtained which being embodied in the roport of tho roviewir.g committee, will bo rendered availablo and highly useful to the farming com miinity, Tho evidonco necessary to cntitlo an appli cant on Fiold Crons. to a premium, will alto gether bo left to the judgment and discretion of 1 no committee, who in no caso will award a pro inium unless they aro furnished with undoubted proof of the correctness uf tlio measurement of tho lands and crops.

When there is no competition on articles no premiums will bo awarded, unless tho articles arc highlv meritorious. In case of the funds of the society should prove insufficient, aficr defraying nlhcr necessa ry expenses of the society, to pay tho full amount of the premiums uflercd and awarded, such deficiency or sum wanting, shall be deduc ted by an equal ratio from all tho several awards, and tho payment uf tho balance on each shall cancel the award. Hut although tho Biard of .Managers deem it prudent to adopt such a proviso, It should be stated that any necessity for tho exorcise there of, cannot exist, if the liberality of tho farmers and tho friends of agriculture throughout the county, should in any degree correspond with tho importance of tho enterprise or with the in creasing interest therein which it is believed is gaming ground amongst us. I'rizo animals or imnlomenls at a previous exhibition, will bo allowed to compote for tho prizes ; but should tho Fame premium hereto- luro given to them bo awarded, tliov will re- coivo a certificate to lliat ellect instead ol mo prize.

Christian clnrity is ono of tho, brighlest and strongest links in thrt chain which connects mankind : it is the child of love and pity ; and powerfully it invites all thnso kindly niTbctinns and sympathies which adorn tho heart of mm . It is tho " cement of souls," proceeding from compassion, and causing gratitude. Wo need not, therefore, wonder at tho numerous praise of this virtue which wo find in the Gonial ; for Christianity is a system of clnrity, and it came from ono who loved and pitied our race. Our Saviour thiu addresses us : " Give In him that asljolh thee, and. from Jiitn that would burrow of thee turn not thre..rvay." " Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, whero moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal ; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven." ''Sell that ye have, and give alms." Fail has devoted a whole chapter to this subject, and treats it with a force of language and powerful strain of eulogy that are uupiraU Iclcd. He shows us that charity is something moro linn a more assistance to poverty ; that it is a disinterested a'jd sincere desiro for tlio happiness of man j a forgiving compassion for their blindnes- and vices; a love, true and uni-. vorsal, for our brethren. " Charitv Bufiereth

long, and is kind; charily cnvieth n it; charily vatinteth not itself, is not pulled up, doth not boliavo itself unseemly, seokelh not her own, is not provoked, tliiuketh no evil ; rojoiccth not iniquity, but rejaiccth in tho truth ; boaroth !ti .1.; t.i! ... ,t it.' t .1. -it all tilings, bolicveth all things, hopoth all things, enduroth all things." Such clnrity as this, oMcns'ive';' dijTjjcd among tho human race, would promote their welfare, would elevate every praiseworthy and beneficial sentiment, would establish peace ! Tho importance of this virtue cannot bo expressed in stronger terms than thoso used by thu tamo apostle : "and now abidoth faith, hope, and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity." Had ho not then good reason to exhort us to "put on aboc all tilings, charity, which is tho bond of perfectness ;" and again, "Let all your things bo done with charity." In his advice to a young Christian, he observes, " Bo thou an example, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity;" and in tho words of another apostle: "Above all thiugi have fer vent charity among yourselves, for charity shall cover a multitude of sins," The mission of Jesus was one of charity and beneficence. lie not only bore salvation to tlio soul, but oven condescended to heal corporal infirmities. " Himself took our infirmities, and hare our slcunosbes." To tho miserable leper entreating for assistance, ho answered, " Bo thou clean;" and at his word the palsied man received strength and igor. When tho wo man, 6Ullcring with disease, touched his gar ment, he said " Daughter ho of good cheer, thy faith hath mado thee whole." The blind he otifo moro permitted to sco tlio fair tilings of carih ; the sick he healed ; and tlio insane he restored to reason. Wh3n the weeping father besought him to recall his only diughtor to life, he immediately entered llio houso of wee and consoled the afflicted throng with tho words, "Weep not; sho is not dead but slcepoth ;" and haling taken Iho young lifeless form by tho hand, he exclaimed, " Maid arise," and " her spirit came again." Behold ing a people oppressed in every man nor, slaves to suparstition and ignorance, his heart was filled with emotion, lie was moved with compaesiun on them, because thoy fainted ind were scattered jibroai ce hhcop hiving no hcpiierd. Does he pronounce a woe on Clio razin and Uelln-aida ! it is only a warning to thus: towns, to leuo them to reflection and amendment ; to cause them to repent and de plore their unhappy condition. And when ho speaks of llio righteous judgment about to over take Jerusalem and tho Jewish people, when ho tells of their obstinate enmity and opposition to him, and his exertions for their salvation, he exclaims with cordial i-cni!orncs', " O Jerusa lem, Jerusalem, how often would I have gath ered thy children together, even as a hen gath crelh her chickens under her wings, and ye would not !" When Herod had beheaded John tho.Baptist, Jesus at once depaited from the scene of peril, and boing followed by a multitude, instead of feeling anger and revenge at Iho iniquity of man, ho "was moved with compassion towards them, and hoaled thuir sick." Ho would not sudor tho adulterous woman to be a victim to lawless violence, but tenderly exclaimed : "Go, and sin no more." BjMlim was hiztrui res tored to tho arms of his sorrowing sisters; and all men who came within his sphere, received the benefits for which they cntroatcd. The disciples learned how to exorcise the Christian attribulo of charity in its most evten sivo form, and also in lliat branch of it which relates to tho relieving of poverty ; for "all that believed were together, and had all things com mon ; and sold their possessions and goods, and parted them lo all mom, as every man had need." "Neither was there any among them that lack ed ; for as many as wero possessors ol lands or houses 6old them, and brought tho prico of the things that wero sold, and laid them down at the apostles' feet, and distribution was mado unto every man according as ho had need." The puro charity taught by Josus, is no barren theo. ry, that does not produce good fruit, but it flour ihes with strength and vigor within Iho heart, and dispenses benefits around ; it enters into every opinion and every action.

A TIIUH STORY. Near tlin closo of tho last century, n Qua ker knight of tho shears and thimble, who exercised his avocation in Philadelphia, was imposed upon by an adroit scoundrel, who contrived to get n suit of clothes on credit, and aflcrwards sloped without paying for thoni. Tho Quaker was loo poor In loso tho debt, hut liko too many others of his cloth, ho had apparently no oilier iilteruativo. The account was placed on his book and soon for gotten. Some yoars aflcrwards ho was ex amining Ids old records of debt and credit, profit and loss, when his attention was at tracted in this account, and nil tho clrcvim stances attending it canto fresh to his mind. Suddenly an odd thought suggested itself. I'll try an experiment,' said he to him self J 'perhaps I may succeed in catching the roguo and getting my pay.' Iio immediately prepared an advertise ment, in substance as folio vs, which he had inserted in tho Philadelphia Gazelle: 'If J C , who was in Philadelphia about tho month of , in tho year 1795, 'will send his addresses to tho Editor of this paper,.ho will, hear of something to ndvan-', Iiwtp. Printers in llin nniiTlilinrinrr Sl.itii nrr ! requcsled to copy.' Tho hitter clause was insorled from a vnguo suspicion that tho roguo had taken up his nhodo in Nuw York. I Haying instructed the Editor not 1.. dis- closo his name to tho roguo if ho should call, tint to request tho latter to leave his nd.lress, tlin flM-it'Of r,,it,t!t, nii'-i ill, ,1 it, n r.t.M I , . . ...v, ,,....,, ..... . o,,,,. experiment. In a short timojio was inform- e.l t.y a no o Irom l ie printer Unit tlio .mil-! alluded to in the advertisutuenl, having arrived irom iNow lorK, migiit uo lountl at a given plnro in tho city. I lie tailor loM no time in preparing n tran script of his account, not forgetting lo clungo interest from the timo lliat tho debt was in curred. Taking a constable witli him, who horoa legal process suited lo tho occasion, ho soon arrived at the lodgings of thu swiu Her. Tho constablo was instructed lo stand off nt a little distance till n signal should in dicate tho lime for him to approach. I ho Quaker now rang Iho bell, when tho servant appeared, requested linn to inform the golillcniiin of whom ho was in search, l tat a menu wished lo spcaK witli linn at tlio "Pnr lie man oueycci inn summons, anu soon both debtor and creditor were looking each Other III tllO f.lCC. 'How does limit do?' kindly inquired tho Quaker. ' Perhaps thou dost not know tun. I believe I havo not had llio pleasure of your acquaintance.' politely answered our ncro. ' Dost thou remember purchasing a suit of clothes several years ngo ol a poor tailor and forgetting lo nay for them ?' asked tho Qua ker. ' O, no,' said tho gentleman, blushing slightly ; ' you must hu mistaken in tho per son. It cannot bo mo that you wished lo find.' ' Ah ! John ! I know thco very well. Thou art the very man I wished lo see. Thou hast on at this moment tho very waist coat that I made for thee. Tlioii must ac knowledge it was of good stuff and well made, or it could not have lasted theo so long.' 'O yes,' sail tho gonllemm, appearing suddenly lo recollect himself; ' I tin remem ber nuw tho circumstances lo which you al lude. Yes, yes I had intended lo call and settle that little bill beforo leaving Philadel phia, and you may depend on my doing so. I h ive come hero to tako possession of a 1 largo amount of properly which has fallen In 1110 bv will. See I hero is tho advertise- nient which has apprised 111c of my good fortune.' Hero ho handed lo llio Quaker a Newhilo tho people, imitating his example, in York paper containing a copy of llio ndver- ttsement wlioso history wo have given above. Tho Quaker looked at It with iniperturbablu gravity and continued ' Yes, I sea thou nit in luck, hut nt my demand is a small 0110, I think I must insit on piynient hoforu lliou comes in possession o f thy largo estates.' Tho proper signal hero brought tho con stablo into tho presence of llio patties, Tho swindler was particularly astonished at the appearance of this functionary, who imme diately began to execute his part of tho drama. ' What !' exclaimed tho roguo in an angry lone; 'you surely havo'nt sued mot' ' Yes, I have,' replied llio Quaker ; ' and thou shouldst bo thankful that nothing worse has happened to thee.' ' Como in, then, said the debtor, finding himself fairly caught ; ' como in, and I will pay you if I must.' Tho three went into the housn Ingelhei, and the slippery gentleman having ascer tained tho amount of Iho hill, paid tt in full. Tho tailor having signed llio receipt, placed it in tho hands nf his lalu creditor, with feel ings such as may ho readily imagined, Tho swindler took it and for llio first lime glanc ed at the. various items of which il was com posed. Ho said nothing till ho came lo the last charge, which was 'for advertising,' wlion ho hioku forth ' Halloo! tidiat's litis 7 ' For advertising!' That's an odd charge in a tailor's bill. Y'ou'ro cheating 1110 !' ' O no,' coolly replied tho Quaker; that is all right. I havo charged theo llio cost ol publishing the advertisement which thou just showed mo.'
