The coniamptlon of the country Is far abort ?f its production, and cannot become equal to It within any caleulable period. On the contrary, the excess of production Is to increase with the increase of population and settlement, and the Improvements In agriculture and ngrieultural eilunatlon. Th"se appear to me to be faot*. eriitiug from the condition of our country, and the tastes and inclinations of our people, fixed beyo?d the powor of change, and to which theories and principles of political aooi ouiy inuat be conformed, to be made practically applicable to us. _ , i s'.mpty propose to inqaire a* to fact, wmen muni control tfin application of theories and principles of polltlrai economy touching this point, to our oountry aad it-* ?<riru'tura! population, without ratsingaay question to the wisdom oftha one or tho soundness of the other Is tho consumption of this country equal to its agricultural production, or c?u it beeome so within any calculable period of years? How is tho fact ? May I not inquire without off?nce, or transoending the limits I have prescribed for myself in the discussion ? Can a fair ex uninution scrupulously confined to this point, take a political beering or disturb a political feeling ? It Is certainly not my dosign to wound the feeling* of any member of tt?? society, or of any citizen of the country ; and I have convinced myself that I inay make thil inquiry, and express thi; conclusion!* of my own miud as to the result, without doing either. If I shall prove to be In error it will be an error as to the fact inquired after, and not ai to the soundness ot tlx principle in political economy dependent upon the fuct for its application, becausa ?' to the soundness of the principle I attempt no dlfousston and offer no opinion. It will be an error as to thii applicability of a theory to our country, and not as to the wisdom or policy or the thoor/, when it can ba practically applied. I studiously refrain from any expression as inappropriate here. With the Indulgence of the Hooiety, I will inquire as to the fact. Our country la Tery wide and very new. It embraces every variety of climate and noil most favorable to agricullural pursuits. It produces already almost every agricultural staple, ana the most important are the ordinary productions of extrusive sections of the country, and a.-e now rent to the markets in great abundance. Yet our agriculture is in its infancy almost everywhere ? anil at It* maturity nowhere. It is believed to be entir'ly s&fe to assume that there is not one single agri cultural county in the wholo Union, filled np lu an agricultural sets#-not odu such county which has not yet Hud to lie brought into cultivation, and much more land, the cultivation 01 which is to be materially iniprovad, before it can bo considered an having reached the measure of ita capacity for production. If this be tru t of the best cultivated agricultural county in the Union, how vast ia the proportion of those counties which hfiv? entire townships, and of the States which have uot merely counties, but entire districts, yet wholly unpeopled, and unreclaimed from the wilderness state. When to this broad area of the agricultural field of our country we add our immense territories, organized and unorganized. who can compute the agricultural capacities of the United States, or fix a limit to the period wheuonr surplus agricultural productions will Increase with increasing ye?rs and population? Compare the ceiihaa of 1830 and 1140 with the map of the Union, and witness tku increase of population in the new Status, which are almost exclusively agricultural, and who can doubt the strong and rssistlcss inclination of our people to this pursuit? Conaect with these considerations of extent of country, diversity of soils. Varieties of climate, an?l partial and imperfect cultivation, tke present agricultural prospects of this oountry Witness the rapid advances of the lust <ii.zH> years in the character of our cultivation, the <iaality and quantity of our productions from a given breadth or land, and the improvements in all the implements hy which the labor of the farmer is assisted and applied. Mark the vaj-t change in the current of educated mind of the country, ia respect to this pursuit; tlx awakened attention to its high respectability as a prof?stinu, to ita safety from hazards, to its heallbfulneas to niiud and body, aud to its productiveness. Listen to the sails for information, for education, upon agri cull ntnl subjects, aud to the demands that this education shall eonsticute a. department iu the great and allpervadtug system of our common suhool education,a sul j>'cl at this moment receiving the especial atteutlon un>l bring pressed forward by the renewed energies of this aim'.ijty.

An Img as inr agricultural shall continue to be an ex porting interest, these considerations, as second only to the ii'ieiice of production itself, will demand oarcful attention and study ot our farmers, and in any well digested *j s'oiu of tgriculturai education, its connection with unufactureti aid the mechanic arts, with oommerce wrh th? coininereial policy of our own and other countries. aud with the domestic and foreign markets, should bold a prominent plitoe A thorough and oontinued tviucai ion in these eollaterai, but highly necessary blanches of knowledge to the farmer, will prove extensively useful to the American citizen, beyond their applxatioa to the productinu and sale of the fruits of bis la'ior They will qnalify him the more safely aud intelligently to discharge the duties of a freeman, and. if called ay lii? fellow-citizens to do so, the more beneficially t'i .*frvi> his Mute aud country in legislative and other public traats.

Tlie?e investigations are the reverse of the former system of arbitrary experiments There, a result was ui 1 ie to justify the arbitrary means adopted to produce it Mere, cuuius are ascertained, and, being so ascertained, are relied upon to produce their natural effect, which effect is the result nought. The importance of this great subject is effectually arousing the attention of the literary an I scientific men of the oc untry, and the suocess already experienced is drawing to these researches mindu quillfled for the labor, and energies ei|ual to Its rapid advancement. The progress mado is bringing together the unsettled mind of the country, and producing the very general impression that the time has arrived when the foundations of a systematic, practical agricultural education should be had, and the superstructure commenced. It is ualversally conceded that agriculture has shared but lightly in the fostering care and government patronage which have been liberally extended to commerce and manufactures, nor is It believed that additional public expenditure is necessary to enable the Htate to do *11 that can reasonably be required of it. to acoompllsh this great object Our educational funds are rioh, and the colleges, academies and common schools of the State share liberally in the distributions from them, while a normal stihool. Ibr the education of teashers, instituted at the seat of government, is also mainly supported from these iunds. These institutions present the organisation, through which, peihaps better than through any independent cbann'1, this instruction can be universally dlsseniinatcd among the agricultural population of the State The annual additions to the school district libraries may be made with reference to this branch of edncaticn. and thus place within the reach ?f all. the dis?overie* as they frit I'gl U<>fV ItHU mo ruifu UI UUIUBUUi; UOUUtVU ??WUI vuru., a* they 'hall b? settled and giveu to tba public from the pens of thu roai potent professors engaged in pursuiugthe researches. This society, and like associations, may, through appropriate committee!, their corresponding secretaries, public ipirited commercial men, and otherwise, oolleot and embody in their transaction, facts and Information rtepeotlng the markets, foreign and domestio; the present and probable supply of agricultural products; the mod* and manner of presenting the principal productions in various markets in the most acceptable form; the state and prospects of trade at home and abroad, and the changes present and prospective In the commercial policy of our owu aud other countries, with the probable inftuunces upon the agricultural market. The cornmercittl and agricultural press will doubtless come powerfully to the aid of the Associations, in all efforts of this character, and having these great objects in view. In this way the foundation may be gradually laid, and the materials collected for the commencement of those agricultural studies, which time and application, with the ooustant evidence of their utility iu practice, would ripen into a tystem, to be engrafted upon the course of regular studies pursued in the ooileges. academies and common schools, and made a branch of the studies of the male classes in the Normal School, piaoed under the superintendence of an Instructor selected for the purpose, and qualified to prepare his olasses for teaching tUf Htuuies in the common schools of ibe State Thus a generation of farmers would soon oemo forward, well educated in tbe great and essential principles of agricultural production; in the true relations existing between agriculture, commerce and manufactures, uod in tho adaptation and preparation of their produots for the agricultural markets. Such farmers, with the continued aid of the schaols In whioh they were taught, would become tbe best manual labor instructor* for their uccnaiora. The passage of time remind* mo that I am extending these remarks bey end the proprieties of the ocaasion and thu patience of my audienoe. A single reflection shall clone them. However confidently the opinion maybe entertained that other circumstances and relatione might present a prospect for the agriculture of our stnte and country more stable, independent and llattering, certain it is. thut the future here opened is full of cheering promise. We sen it in the strongest possible security for our beloved country, though an indefinite period against the scourge ol famine. Our varied soil and climate and agriculture double thU security, as the disease aud failure ot' any one crop will not, as a necessary censequence, re duce'auy class of our population to au exposure to death from hunger. Weseealso, in addition to feeding ourselves, that our surplus is almost, if not altogether, sufficiently, if faithfully aud prudently applied, even now to drive famine from the length and breadth of Kurope \ad that it is in our power, by faithful mental and physical application, soon to make it equal to the expulsion of hunger from the commercial world. We see that, dependent upon the commercial markets, our agriculture may bring upon our country a high degree of prosperity. and enable us, when extraordinary occasion* shall call for its exercise, to practise a national benevolence as grateful to the hearts of the humane as to the wants of the destitute. And we see that by the wider diffusion aud more secure establishment of a successful agrleul i ure among our ciMzuns. as a permanent employment, w* are laying broader and deeper the foundations of our free institutions, the pride and glory of our country, and prized by lis freemen as their riubes earthly blessing ; ibe history of all civil government, confirmed by the experience of this republin,furnishing demonstrative prool inaury, arts thu safest repository of freedom and free institutions.

With the view of obtaining a clue to the nam>- of the deceased, then unknown, the coroner sent for Mr Bsner, who identified him as his own son, whom he stated left home on Monday last after being reprimanded for some improper conduct, and threatened with severe punishment in case it should be repeated, and that he had not seen him sinco. The jury having rendered their verdict of death by drowning, JUner was spoken to in relati n to the removal of the body ofhla son from the station hou.*? to his own reaidence, when Baner refused to receive it, and remarked that he did not want to bury him?that ho might be taken to the Alms House and buried at Cotter's Kleld at publio expense. The coroner, Indignant at snch conduct on the part of a parent, gave Baner until to-morrow to make up his mind what he would do in the matter. In the meanwhile the body of the deceased lies in the Alma House yard, awaiting the result of his father's deliberations.

To this rapid contraction in the circulation oan be direotly traced the embarrassments which have since swept away so many oommercial houses, and produced o much mercantile distress in all parts of the United Kingdom. In April, when the general movement commenced in the corn markets, which led to the great inflation in prices for all kinds of breadstuff*, the circulation of the Bank of Kngland waa ?1,703,226 larger than on the 21st of August, when the best houses in the kingdom were daily suspending payment. The operation of the new bank aot, which has been in sistenoe aboat three years, has created a great deal of oomplaint in commercial.circles; and to the restrictions upon commercial credit, whioh, it is said, that aot has caused, are attributed most of the disasters in the commercial world. We are not disposed to attach all the blame to the framers of that law; the restrictions which that act place upon the paper issues of the Bank of England, should have deterred all classes from getting up those immense speculative bubbles, which have drawn them into the most extravagant investments and into the most extraordinary expenditures. After these bubbles have been Inflated to their utmost tension, when ?u aruuuiai system ei creaus nau uucimn no generally established, that all cI?mm were drawn Into the wildest speculations, and the currency of the country, as limited by an act of parliament, became unequal to meet the immense demand for facilities, and the Bank wan compelled to raise the rate of interest from time to time, to restrain the progress of the speculative movements, then those actlvly engaged in the inflation of railway and other bubbles, began to cry out against the new bank obarter, and oondemn the principles upon which it is established. The prime ottieot in view in the formatfc>n of the new hanking system of Kngland, was the preservation of a uniform currency, and the establishment of the circulation upon a safe and sure basis. This object has been secured; and if the commercial and other classes of (ireat Britain had regulated their operations by the movement* of the Bank of Kngland, instead of requiring the Uank of Kngland to regulate its movements by the oourse th y from time to time pursued, there would not have been so many antagonistic Interests in existence to derange the financial affairs of the country.? The Bank of Kngland will protect Itself at all hatards la so doing, the commercial classes will be favored as much as possible, but they, as well as all speculators in the kingdom, are in the power of the bauk, and If necessary, must be sacriioed to a great extent. The government, the large capitalists, and the Bank of Kngland move together, and the power they have in the financial world is absolute. In whatever they'undertake, whether it if to inflate or depress prices, to check any great speculative mania,or to break down the merchants of any other country extensively connected with Kngland in trade, for any particular purpose, oven at the sacrifice of their own, they invariably succeed, and It is useless to contend against such a trio, it is impossible to tell what oourse the Bank of Kngland intends to pursue from time to time, in relation to oemmsrcial movements of the day.' Its weekly reports forui uo guide, ti.ey show the condition of the institution at the time, but nettling more. Auy contraction in its circulation may be resorted to for the purpose of depressing prices for any great staple article of trade, previous to a sudden inflation, and a rapid reaction in priccs. When it Is known that powerful b'vnking Institution makes use of Its immense power in the market, and comes into competition with the very class depending upon it for facilities, we never can depend upon any uniformity in the value and volume of the currency, and know not what a week or a month may bring forth in the financial world. No sne engaged In legitimate busiuess can object to restrictions being placed npon a bank concerned In such operations. The report of the Hartford and New Haven Hall Iload """ r""; """ J ??!
