The 22,1 and 23d of September were days long to be remembered by the farmers and friend of Agricul ture mid Domestic Industry of the County of Chitten den and their numerous visitors from adjoining Coun ties and siter Stale. Tlio skies could not have been more auspicious, the roads were in fine order, and nothing to induce any any to " stay nvvay." At an early hour on the 22d, every road leading to Darling ton was filled witli all sorts of four-lbotcd animal, the products of farms, shop, and dwelling", Ladies and (ienllcinen, (not patent ones, manufactured by t rench dancing masters,! Lads and Lasses, all gome to the CA'I'TLD SHOW." The best feeling pre v ailed, and nothing tranpircd during the two days to interrupt It, unless it might have been some spirit of rivalry known only to the parties concerned.

(jui.ni,,,.,, lt. maikcd, after vi-iting the show-grounds and taking a I survey of the Town Hall, that the show of the ruddy, j happy faces of our Orccn Mountain Oirls alone was worth more than guinea. The show of animals, firm implements, Sec. was on the beautiful and extensive ! I grounds situated on the shore of the Lake, known as tho "Camp Orouud," which a lew years since wos purchased by the town of Uurliiiglon for public pur- poes. The' exhibition of Fruit, Domestic Manulac- lures, llutler, Cheese, &c. ste. was in the large Town Hall. Tho show of Cal.le was very extensive. As the booksofentry have no, ail beeetunied totho re.ary, he is not able lo state the precise number ; but Ihey were entered by number, and some of tbciii numbered nearly 100. The row- of Horses wos near halt a mile in length, while one side of the erounds one side of the grounds was occupied by pen for sheep, &.c, nnd the centre for firm implements, itc. ccc. On Horses llie Society ollered 110 premiums except Iiir studs, mates, and colts three years old and under. Of these classes the show excelled any previous one, and bom ample testimony to the new spirit of enter-' pn-e which pervades tins department ol agricultural iiiipiuvement. Of Cattle particularly native wc have never seen thu show equalled. Some oflheni, for good si.e, fair pioportious, and perfect sjminelry of form, cannot be excelled hv any foreign importations. A very respectable number of thorough bred cattle were on the ground, and their appeaiaucc indicated cither great attention on tlie part of their owners, or the superiority of the pastures of Vermont. Wo saw no better Durhauis, Devons, llerefords or Arsbiies at Saratoga, as lo sue or fonn, while the cattle bred in Vcrmunt showed a decided superiority in their line glos-y coats and ccmpact fiums.

The number of Sheep was not great when com pared with Cattle, but in quality they excelled any before exhibited, l'urc blood Merinos ond Ha.xons were exhibited fully equalling any which can be shown in any adjoining Counties or Slates.

Of Garden Vegetables the show was extensive, ond as to quality it is only necessary to say, that ill a sale held al the tlo-e of the lair, squaslies sold at $1,00, and vvater-inelons ot $3,0(1 each. In Turin Implements and .Mechanical Manufactures the quantity and variety was very small compared with other departments ; but the quality of such as weie exhibited was highly cicditnble to their makers. The show of flutter uud Chtcse wos exunsive, and the reputation ol Vermont fully sustained in qualities.

What is learned by one is handed down by a port of hereditary Irndiiion to ihose that follow. The exist- ence of the law of primogeniture also comes ill to nid jn the nsnsmission of ihU knowledge, so that it is never lost, but always augmenting. A herd-book may be thus established and transmitted from sire to son, and knovvledcc gathered up in regard to flock and va riety of breeds on the same soil, in the someplace, and under substantially the same circumstance , which can never be done among u. Our laws of inheritance bleak up the family every fewyears, and they go no one knows where. In tin particular the l'.nglih have greatly the advantage of us in making experiment: on various breeds of stock. And wc probably shall find il always for our benefit to resort more or less to Hug land lor superior stock for this reason.

Yet in nine cases out of ten ho was good for nothing before lie entered, and not unlikely the verv fact of Iih indolence was tho sole rwon why ho was sent. What can , e.xpor.tod of such material ? There U no magic in a college that can tratiform dullness 0r arouse indolence. If you send a blockhead 0 college, ho will graduate a blockhead, and if vo Fon,' i,er 10 w ,,rmluate an idler, with, in all probability, for so he will doubtless nave been taught at home tin additional dis qualification for usefulness : that bis head is filled with the idea that to go to firming nflcr such an cxp'ii'o of time and money would bo tho height of folly. Ho therefore eschews tho p'ovvor tho anvil as beneath tho dignity of a lib erally educated man, and cleaves to the green bag or the pestle and mortar. He claims to uo competent to any thing, when lie is actually fit fr nothing. Yet the collego is not at fault. It i3 the mo-t tinrcaonable,"rnost universal, and , ,ln,t iinfurliin ito prejudice, that nothing is re- inired but hand and eves to fit one for the oth er avocations of life, while a long court-e of pre vious training is requisite lo the competent dis charge of the duties of the so-called profession. The moment a boy is sent to collego lie is taught to aspire to something higher Ihan rai'ing pota toes. Raising potatoes is well enough in its way, and for those who like It. Work-folks are clever, respectable people enough, but our son was ev iiu'iiuy meant tor somctlitng nigiier inun tIL, :lwver m-ed it only that he may be a law yer, while no truly needs it, as does every 0110 oKe, that he m ty l!r-t ho a man. I have no fear lint anything which may bo said here will mi stimulate you to send jour ons to college that tho lecture rooms of our Univcrs'ilv will be crowded beyond their capa city, linked, I would have no one sent to col lege ; for if tlie student be there against his wishes or predilection, he will be economical neither of his time nor your money. If hu ba indifferent, it wiil ho but "little better. But if ho lu impelled by an ardent thirst for knowledge, discovers a willingness to work that he may obtain il, and receives with evident gratification any aid that maybe ull'orded, encourage him; anil if you can Itnd a place where he can enjoy better facilities for accomplishing his purposes than at college, aid In 111 to get there and to stay there. Your inve-tment will bo many fold bet ter than if in hoii-c, or lands, or sheep, or cat tle, or hores. Your reward will some day be 1 rich one, for your seed will have been sown on go id ground.
