I Amongst the institutions which give prom 1 ise of great practical utility in our State, the ; projected Industrial College, about to be es tablished in Orono, should be regarded, we j think, with special favor by all classes of the people. So comprehensive is its working de I sign, that it should be called an “Industrial” rather than an “Agricultural” College; and l even if it were christened a University rath ! er than a college, snch a designation would | come but little short of the several purposes ! contemplated in the Congressional Act en dowing it. The idea seems to prevail that the proposed establishment is to be a school for farmers’ boys only, who are to be taught those branches of learning which have a di rect bearing upon practical husbandry. This is, indeed, one, and perhaps a chief design, but is very far from being the whole purpose. Its general object and character are briefly Stated In the 4tb section of the act, which pro vides, that the interest of the fund (amount j iug in our case probably to nearly three bun I dred thousand dollars; shall be inviolably ap i propriated by the State “to the endowment, support and maintenance of at least one col lege, where the leading objects shall be, with out excluding other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts, in such manner as the Legislature may prescribe, In order to pi emote the liberal and practical ed ucation of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions oflife.” I Uougn tbe teaching ot agriculture and the mechanic arts in a primary provision ot the law, there is nothing in it limiting the work of instruction to these; hut, on the contrary, the idea is ot a college of the grandest scope, where, “without excluding other scientific and classical studies,” the branches of learn ing taken up, are to be taught “in such a man ner as the Legislature may require in order to promote the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes in the several pur suits and professions of life.” It will be seen, thereiore. that not only a “practical” but a “liberal” education is contemplated- And this education is not only ior the several “pur suits,” but also for the “professions” of life.— As we have said, such a design comes but lit tle short of the scope of a University. Men are indeed, to be educated mainly in the branches relating to agriculture and mechan ics ; hut if they, or others, also choose to re ceive instruction in “scientific and classical studies,” they can be accommodated, and thus be prepared by a “liberal and practical edu cation” for success “in tbe several pursuits and professions.” We may hope, therefore, to see young men come from it, who, Jby their literary acquirements, shall be prepared to distinguish themselves as farmers and me chanics ;aud others,who entering upon different piolessions, shall carry with them a knowledge of the natural sciences, and a lumiiiarity with the laws of good husbandry, which shall fit them still more ior usefulness and happiness in their respective callings. In a word, the institution should be one having a regard to universal education as truly as any of our ex isting colleges. It it proves such, it will open a new era in the cause of popular education; aud comprehending alike the benefit of all classes, will emphatically accord with the ge nius of our democratic institutions which know no degrees of honor on any other scale than that of eminent merit. Our literary colleges educate young men almost exclusively tor what are called the learned professions—law, physic and divinity, or leave them, quite too often, to be idle and useless drones in society. A fanner's son who is graduated there, is thereafter generally lost to the farm. Seldom does he return home to renew with a new zeal and vigor the health ful labor of rural life, but regarding this as be neath the aspirations of a scholar, he aban dons tbe home of his childhood to seek fora jivelihood by the easy means of literary or pro fessional life in the city. The Maine Indus trial College Is calculated to correct this error. It means to make rural life as learned, as hon orable, and as successful as professional Ute.— It intends to send its graduates htme as blessings to then lathers and to the communi ties in which they reside. How far the Institution at Orono may ac complish the high design of the act, wili de pend upon the spirit in which it is conducted, and upon the sort of men who administer its affairs. It will labor under one disadvant age at the outset; it will have no adequate ex ample which it can adopt with sure success. True, there are Agricultural Colleges in Eu rope ; but they, like the governments of the old world, are based upon castes, and there fore unsuitable for our imitation. As our fa thers who founded the republican constitu tion of America, had the benefit of no exam ple before them, so, in a manner, the perfec tion of a system adapted to the equal educa tion of ail classes of tbe people can only be at tained by careful experiment. The kindred col leges which are partially in operation in Michi gan, and Pennsylvania, and those which,, per haps earlier than our own,will he in operation in Iowa and Massachusetts, will doubtless greatly aid the Trustees of the Maine College in maturing early some good working system.— ! If its aim is high, according to the provisions ot tbe law endowing it, and if it is managed) not by fanciful theorists, but by men of good souud common sense, who know how to util ize the labor of the hand with the soundest thought of clear heads, we may not doubt that it wili speedily acquire tbe public favor and respect, overcome whatever of prejudice may now exist in certain quarters against it, and in due time, elevate the industrial profes sions to a rank as high as their merits axe con spicuous. As far as the science of agriculture and its kindred branches are concerned, it is not to be expected that it will educate every young farmer in the State; but by sending out an nually a few scores of well educated and skil ful men, fresh from the laboratory and from the field of successful experiment, into vari ous parts of the State, it will be the means of disseminating a vast amount of useful knowl edge, both in theory and in practice, which cannot fail, like light, to illuminate the gene ral mind on subjects of popular interest. If no other advantage results at first from it, than the qualifying and sending iorth ol an annual corps of apt instructors, who, by com munications through the press, or by popular lectures, shall address the people in hails, or In school houses, or at their firesides, even this would make the institution worth much to our whole public. I Tt id n-Avfl ii' ftf J'OTlt orlr tnn tliof iha nnll/N^A ---, ;-—— will furnish a class o! men who are competent to conduct the various operations of farms and estates owned by retired merchants, bank ers, ship-masters, &e., who desire a residence in the country, but, being themselves inexpe rienced, know not how to carry on a farm with satisfaction or success. How many such are there, who fail of their design for the want of that knowledge, either in their own persons, or those they employ, which the class of men alluded to can happily supply. Well educated graduates from an Industrial College, I who know how to plan, execute, economize and market to the best advantage, would not be long in finding places, if they so wished, I upon the estates of wealthy citizens at satis J factory salaries. Literary teachers from the j Normal School are not more needed than | graduates from the Industrial College. 1 The farm occupied by the college at Orono, ' will doubtless be improved as au experimental aDd not a model farm- Liebig says, “the ob ject of an agricultural college is not simply to teach what is already known, but to teach a better system of farming. How will you do this? Certainly not by employing a practical farmer to manage a model farm for you; for he knows only what is practiced generally, and his superior ability will consist simply In his better management oyer other ordinary farmers. This will be trashing finance™,, and not agriculture. The only method by which you can possibly advance and develope agriculture is by experiments; that is the on ly plan, for there is no branch of industry so completely built up by experiments, as agri culture. . . . You must not calculate that the experimental farm will, In any sense, be a source of revenue to the finances of the in stitution, tor whilst some experiments may show considerable net protit, others will show a corresponding loss.” Experimental failures are sometimes as val uable as successes. It is as important for a farmer to know what to avoid, as what to pur sue. Important experiments cannot often be conducted and prosecuted by private effort, for the want of facilities or the want of means; but in an institution of this kind, they can be systematically tried, for the general good.— And this should be one of it3 objects. An experimental fann is the place where science may be illustrated and tested by practice • and where that lamiliar acquaintance with soils, implements and processes, and with ani mals, their habits, laws of breeding and uses, and that manual dexterity with tools may be attained, which cannot otherwise be acquired. Whether the farm at Orono furnishes all the variety of soils, natural growths, &c., ne cessary for Just experiments adapted to all parts of the State, we know not; probably it does in all the essentials, otherwise it would not have been accepted for the general pur pose. We confess to our fear that a location ay far north, and in the valley of the Penoin acot where, in some places at least, even ap ples are not grown, cannot well demonstrate success in all the fruits and products nearer the seaboard and in the more western coun ties of the State. We have, too, in Maine, in exhaustible resources of marine fertilizers, which need the demonstrations of conclusive experiments; hut a_ location so far in the inte rior as that chosen for the college, must evi dently be beyond the reach of the raw mate rials The time may come when the waters and shores of our seaboard will furnish, at a ehia > rate, the materials lor enriching every farm in the State to any desirable extent. The act of Congiess, as we have already 1 •aid, prohibits the expenditure cf any part of the principal or interest derived from the sale of lands granted, “for the purchase, erection, paeservation or repairs of any building or buildings.” Nor can any portion of the prin cipal, except ten per cent for the purchase of land for sites |or an experimental farm, be ex pended for any purpose whatever, but must be wholly invested in safe stocks yielding not less thau five per cent., the interest of which is to be used for carrying on tbe operations of tbe College. The portion of land falling to Maine is 490,000 acres. The scrip assuring this is worth in the market 80 per cent. At this rate, the land will yield a fund of $392,000. At six per cent, the interest on this amount is $23,520 annually, which is more than the yearly cost of sustaining the largest literary college in the State—that of Bowdoin in Brunswick. The profits arising from private or municipal dona tions must be added to the above, which may be expected to enable tbe Industrial College to fulfil much of the high design contemplated by the law. Some discussion has been had on the ques tion, whether the College should be furnished with one large ornamental edifice embracing room for all its departments, or whether it should, rather, be provided with separate small buildings differently located for tbe ac commodation of officers, students, &c. Mas sachusetts has resolved to adopt the latter plan, devised by Fred. Law Olmstead, and the Trustees of the Maine College have accepted the same. This may be the humblest atd best arrangemout, bat it -rnnf covering three or four ample stones, appropri ated to all the educational uses of the College, would be found, on the whole, less expensive and more convenient than a village of little buildings. However, we are not disposed to be captious, but are willing to believe that the plan adopted is the result of mature consider ation, and that it will be found practically economical and useful. All the people of the State, of every profession and pursuit, are in terested in the success of the Maine Indus trial College, and we hope there will be a willingness in every direction to help lor ward the high and honorable objects of its in stitution. I/etler from Canada West. “ANNEXATION OF CANADA." Petbolla, C. W., Jan. 8,1867. TO THE EDITOB OF TBE PRESS: I have had too much to do with editorial and newspaper life, not to know that he is unwise who provokes a controversy with an editor in his own columns. With this impression fixed in the mind, I would stoutly insist in the out set that, in what I have to say below in opposi tion to certain editorial statements In the Press, I do not intend or desire controversy, only a correct statement of existing facts. I will begin then by saying, that after nearly a year’s intercourse with the people of Canada West, and not a few opportunities for becom ing acquainted with the feeling and spirit of her people toward our own country J was pained to see in the Press of Dec. 12th, in an article on the “Annexation of Canada,” language like the following: If it were possible, without trepanning a score or more of Canadian journalists, to beat it into their heads that the American people j are not just now thinking or caring very much 1 about them, in any way, and are by no means 1 longing for their frozen territory with its mon- ' grel races, associated like oil and water, it would be worth while to attempt the feat. There is nothing in the territory of the Provinces to ex cite our cupidity. We have quite as much ter ritory of our own already, as we want. There is nothing in the character of the Provincials to excite our affection to any ungovernable pitch. We are not drawn towards the French Cana dians of Lower Canada, or the British snobs of the Upper Province. I dare say many Canadian editors would suf fer no intellectual loss by the surgical operation above suggested, and it is equally evident to my mind that all American editors are not free from the weakness that is so justly rebuked on this side of the boundary. But from quite an 'extensive acquaintance with Canadian editors, ! I do not hesitate to pronounce the above whole- | sale judgment uujustif not unkind. The pa- 1 pers of Toronto, Hamilton, London, Sarnia, , and other Canada West cities, in point of tal ent and enterprise, will compare favorably with those of cities of similar size in the States. That the people of Canada should think there are some attempts being made to carry annexa tion by fraud and lying, is not to be wondered at, when such papers as the New York Herald teem with detailed accounts of public annexa tion meetings in this Province;—accounts man ufactured from whole cloth, as probably the man is not living who ever attended such a meeting, at least in the Western part of the Province. The total indifference to a neighbor ing Province,—populous, intelligent and some what enterprising,—implied' in the above ex tract, permit me to suggest, would be much mere honored in the breach than in the observ ance. rue races which mane up Canada West are no more “mongrel” than those making np large and populous portions of our own coun try, while the “British snobs of the Upper Province,” so far as my observation has extend ed, at a class, would be an honor to any coun try. All through Canada West a free school system prevails, patterned after New England; the freedom of speech and of the press is per fect; the laws are liberal and wise; the pul pits—nearly all Protestant—are free and often occupied by tuen of distinguished talents; the Bar takes a high stand; the Judges generally are proverbial for their inflexible integrity, and never, in all my life, have I seen a people more observant ol laws, or among whom crime seems to be less prevalent. It is notorious also, that wealth and position do not screen from the just punishment of crime as they often do with us in the United States. With hundreds of the people have I freely in terchanged opinions, and I have yet, in a ten months sojourn, to hear the first unkind word of the neighboring republic, except in a few instances from the mouth of ignorance or abso lute stupidity. Xhe truth is, the people are like our own people,—of the same language, of the same common religion, of the same ori gin, of the same general pursuits, and no more bigoted or prejudiced. Iruc, they love their own country and love thoir Government, and, as a gentleman remarked the other day at a political dinner, for him to speak slightly of the Government which protected him and of which he was a subject, or to praise a foreign Govern ment at the expense of his own, would ensure him the contempt of every honest, patriotic American citizen. The “frozen territory” of Canada West is in the same latitude as northern New York aid New England and States further South, while the vast crops of potatoes, oats, peas and wheat, th i!'6 berJs of lat cattle, the flocks of she<p. o ousands of horses with which the Provin - ces a ound, show, that with all the faults of epeop e they do not stand In need of any spe S Referring to the alleged uukindness of the Canadians towards the States during thelaJo civil war, the same article from which I have quoted above says: Whatever this, that, or the other American may say, Canadians may be quite sure that the people of this country have forgotten none of these things and want no intimate alliance with the cowardly, backbiting insects who kept up such a buzziug two or three years ago. I am satisfied that the proportion of the peo ple of western Canada who sympathized with the North in our late bloody struggle was very much larger than our people were accustomed to give credit for, while the feeling of sympa thy which did prevail for the rebels, was rather the common sympathy felt for the smaller or “under dog in the light” than any real sympa thy for the cause wnich the rebels were striv ing to uphold. In a conversation with an ed ucated gentleman a few days since, touching this very matter, he remarked that the great mass of the people of Canada did not fulJy comprehend the merits of the issue# involved in our struggle, and that their Southern sym pathy was only the natural feeling experienc ed for the weaker party, especially when such party is borne down by overwhelming force.— “Upon the whole,” said he, “I think the feeliwj was rather creditable than otherwise.” Know ing him to be a true friend to our loyal cause, I added,—“more creditable to the heart than the head." “That is so," he added, aid then made the remark alluded to above, that few of the common people had a nice appreciation of the issues involved in the struggle. That the Canadas will ever be annoxed to the States is a question in relation to which l predict nothing. That Canada West, f an nexed fairly, would become a noble, wealthy, intelligent, loyal State, I have no doubt at all. That she now desires such a relationship I do not believe. That she never may is quite probable. That many of her best men believe annexation would promote her best interests, I think is true; that tbty are disposed to dis turb present relations to secure such a result is quite another thing. That intimate rela tions betweou the two countries and the culti vation of kindly feelings aro desirable and would be beneficial to both peoples, seems as evident to my mind as the plainest statement of fact, and that, at no distant dgy, the people of the two countries will think better uf each other because better acquainted with each other, seems to me equally plaiu. One thing I do know; that uearly all bigh minued, intelligent gentlemen in this portion of the Province feel annoyed and humiliated whenever they see in the Proviueiul press any exhibitions of ill-feeling towards their neigh bors over the border, and insist that the best way for Canadians to grow prosperous and to develop# their country is to exhibit the same spirit of enterprise that so highly distinguishes the Yankee character, and by acts of fraterni ty and neighborly kindness invite an tnfiux of men and money from “the other side." Is not this much better than the “trepanning” system, and more in harmony with the spirit of the age than the cultivation of the meuioty of past evil deeds and unkind words? Spubwink. [We cheerfully endorse all the kind and pleasant things “Spurwink" says of our Pro vincial neighbors. Indeed in the article of which he complains we took care to speak of the "sterling qualities” ol our Canadian cous ins. and to express a desire to “let bygones be Uysrones. anil Oi "tw.hi... h*lwA.n* »■ atui *<x reciprocity of commercial favors advantageous to both parties." Probably “Spurwink" did uot stop to read the whole article. If he had, he would have noticed that we occupy ground so identical that “discussion" between us is not only undesirable but 'mpossible. He says the Canadians are good fellows. So do we. He says we ought to cultivate peaceful relations with them. Agreed. He says they don’t want to be annexed to the United States. We be lieve it, and we take pleasure iu assuring them that the people of the United Slates, having land enough of their own, don’t want the Provinces, and are not thinking ol them at ail. When a general cry comes up irom the Cana dian journals, as on the occasion of our former writing, that there is a conspiracy among the “Yankees,” as they courteously term us, to build up an annexation party iu the Canadas by sheer lying, we shall hereafter as heretofore endeavor to correct that mistake, and shall try to make the correction as intelligible as the re sources of English speech will permit. We ghall not say and have not said that these civil gentlemen "lie." Wedosay undshall very likely have occasion to repeat, that their bysterioal exhibitions of apprehension from the United States are equally groundless and ridioulons. It seems to us, also, that “Spurwink," who is “pained" by our allusions to the geographical position of the Canadas and to the Frenob pup ulation ot the Lower Province, might drop a tear or two over the allegation ot our neigh bors, that “organized falsehood Is one of tho in stitutions of the United States." This Is the way in which the Montreal Telegraph culti vates peaceful relations. If we don't quite relish such compliments, “Spurwiuk” ought not to be surprised.—Eh.] Relief fob Shipbuilders.—The following is the text of the resolution offered by Mr Lynch last week, in the national House of Representatives. We copy from the Congress ional Olobe: Whereas the agricultural and manufactur ing interests of the country were during the war ot tho rebellion pxotectedj stimulated aud improved, while our great commercial interests were nearly ruined for lack of that protection which the government was unable to afford; and whereas the restoration of our commerce is of great national importance and essential to the mainteuance of our position as a first class power; therefore, Resolved, that the Committee of Ways aud Means be, and they are hereby, instructed to inquire into the expediency of allowing a drawback on all duties and taxes upon all ar ticles used in the construction of steam and sailing vessels. The resolution was received by unanimous couseut and agreed to. It seems to us, that the enquiry can have but one result. Our shipbuilders must be furnished with the materials they need, at prices which will enable them to compete with yards In the British Provinces, or the business will pass from our hands and the carrying trade with it. Mr. Lynch is moving in the right direction, and will doubtless secure such relief as is duo to a great interest seriously imperilled.
