Eoeru business in life is miinty depend cnl far ils proipsrily, uptn the labors of agriculture. Agriculture is llto body, wlul'j the other professions are llto members ; and although tlto body and members nro inutu illy Dendont, nml reciprocally n -i fi 1 to each other, llto body can exist without tins mem bers. much batter thtii lit" members cm exist without the body. The fanner can supply the necessities, and rami of Ins roa Bouablc want, within the circle of his fain ily ; he can feed and clolhu himself; but his wants are enlarged and his ability to gratify them increased in proportion lo the profits of his labor. If through ignorance or sloth he produce' only what n necessary for the sustenance of his hoitS'.'hold, he nan buy neither of the merchant, the tnanufuc lurer or the mechanic, nor contribute to the support of the Icirned professions ; or. if ho buys he cannot p ly. It'll it his pro duceis double what is req'iired for the con sumption of his family, tin -itrplus half may be employed I'm tiie benefit of the other classes in purclnsinrr from ihuin the com forts and elejiancics of life. 'Pin other classes, no contrary wis, cannot thrive, as such, without the aid nl the tanner: lie furnishes the raw miteriaU for the imnu facturer, he faetls the mechanic, nnd freights tho bark nl conrncrco : an I ii betnliM the principal cuslomer to thetn all. ll follows as n. corrollary, that 2. The prwperilij nf a Stale it determined by the good or b id stale of ils husb'wlrij Wo see ovory where, in districts ns well as entire stales, the strongest proofs of the correctness ol this proposition. Uonlruit Dutchess, Orange, and Columbia, with any three counties whore agriculture t.s neglected or managed in tho old slovenly manner. In the first, all clisses thrive and prosper, if Ihny are industrious and pru. dent j bicaiise thero the b idy is to hi'allliiiti vigor. In the latter, yon will (i id the b uly lelhntgic, diseased, and covered wnli pu trifying nun's, and tho tneinbors piriaking of all its iiitiroiities. 'Plie Ut winter's ex perience, in cnir citi'.s and towns, shows their exl renin sensitiveness to the 11 ir.ini lions in the supply ofagncultitral products. Some of the farinors' crops were last year deficient in the nccttsiotned yield, anil the consequence was, the buyer had to pay S3 ond 50 per ccnl above the ordinary prices for many articles of the first necessity. Had tho products of the soil been double what they were, prices would hnvn been low, and the buying classes would have subsisted cheaper and butler, and the far mer would have purchased of them in re turn mora liberally. 3. The improvements and profits nf as ri culture, and the eonttnuent nwneritii of a State, are in the ratio nf the measure of, -..ft; . i. i .i J xmciittjCniG ufKiffrguiucr a moors. The head can do no mire than tho bands. Tho animal strength of the horse or tho ox would effect no useful purpose, without the contrivance and directum of man. In many countries on tho old conti Dent, whero tho cultivator is debased by icnoranco anu despotism, mo awKward, ill contrived implements of the primitive ages aro still in uso , and in some parts of our own land, tho hoc, ur tho rudest machine of a plough, is still substituted for tho greatly improved implements of modern times, be cause the cultivator is ignorant and servile. There is not a manufacturing employment, nor a mechanic art, but has been greatly abtidgnd in its inanipiilntinns nnd had it?

Wo verily believe that scinnce can do more, and will do more, in I he com ing thirty yenrs, to improve the condition ol agriculture, than has boon rffuctcd in th" two last centuries. An intelligent head is deemed of more importance, and com mands a higher compi'iKalion in unnv of our largo t'stablishui',n,s. than hilfn dozen mere sinew onus. Mind is I In lever that moves the tnilerial world. the mister spirit that civili.s iinti, and multiplies his comforts and ntijovmoiils. Wo may ac quire knowledge, in our business mnchani ca Ily but slowly. The acquisition may be accelerated and augmented, loan nunzing extent, by the experience and teachings of men who have undo natural nnd chemical science their study and employment for life. There is nnother consideraiioii which rendprs tho improvement nf llie mind of public benefit: ignorance begets indolence, and indolence begets vice If we would, therefore, inculcate virtue, we most foster industry; and if wo would make industry respectable und desirable, wo most throw light upon its paths and secure for it its mcr iled reward If wo have succeeded in establishing our propositions, it results ns a consequence. thai the improvement of our agriculture is of the first importance to every class of our population and that tots improvement can in no way receive such efficient aid, as by instructing the youth who are hereafter to manage its concerns, as well in tho science as in the practice ot their bu-itncss. Wo have drawn the reader's attention to the Mihjccl at this tune, that the measures iipcessary to produce I no desired result may undergo a thorough and timely inves tigation, and that our citizens m iy be pro pared to co-operate in such uf'.hnm ns may scetn bst ad iDtcd M subserve the public weal before the coming winter. The ills tnbutive share to New York, of the sur plus revenue, which congress, with great unanimity and wi-dini, his directed to be divided among the states, will probdbly amount to between Iwo and three millions of dollars. And the question will present itselfto our nxt Legislature, and upon which they will want an expression of the public wish, lo what obji-c's, and in what manner shall these monies be applied ? Shall they be expended on internal im provements, on education, and in improving our acnculturc, upon cither or all of them exclusively where their benefits cannot fail to be general, and important, and abiding or shall t lie v go into tho general fund where their benefits are likely lo be more partial and transitory : As pertinent lo this subject, wo would as-k the reader's n'tenlioii to tliu extract in our voinig men's department, from "First Lessons in Political I'jconoinv," by professor M Vtcir ol Uolumbia Uollego, a utile work which the iinti as well as boy miy pjrusc with profit. INDIAN COltN. There is another q icsiiun of intcron to farmers, which relates to the mode ot Inr vesting the crop, that is, whether it is b;r to top the stalks, cut the whole at the ground when the gram is glazed, or cut the whole when the grain is fullv ripem-d. We have stnted the experiments of M Clark of Northampton, one of the best practical Tanners ot our country, and ol other gentlemen, showing that the grain siiTi.ts ii dimitiut ion of six or eight bushels tin! aero, by lopping the stalks; and there seems to be no couuterb ihooiiig benefit tit the fodder, unless nt tin expeuu of carry io" the stalk to the b ird-irs of the Ik'ld th it I hey may be secured before the crop is fathered, and b More lii"V become blanch ed ami half ruined. And it is no proleciioti a"iin-t cirly autumnal frosts, but rather exposes uiiripQiiod grain to bo in ire injured Heoco, so far as regards llieso two modes all who have m ide u comparison, seem to concur in tho opinion, tint stripping the com of its tops and leaves is a bid practice. William C irmiclnol of Virginia has given us in the F.iriuir's llegiitor, his expert inetits in this matter which go In carrobo rate the concliiiion we have drawn. lie took, promiscuously, 1 00 oars from corn that had been topped, and 100 ears from that had not been tupped, growing sid'1 by nl. Is1 1! first weighed on tin.' cob, 50 lbs. ts'iiilled 41 lbs., and measured 21 qls, I pt. Pile other 51 lbs.-helled. lbs., ami measured 20 q's., h iwing a d fT-ronci' ol in-arty one mill to lav ,r.ot uiiilripp 'U or unloppcd corn. Too fact is, that lopping nol only prevents Hie lurther efiboral ion ot the sap which can only tuko placo m the leaves, and wlncli is necessary lor the growth of the corn, bill it deprives the gram of much that is already elaborated, and on its way to the grain. II n fruit Iroe is deprived of its leaves before th" fruit Ins attained us growth, or mature (livor. its supply of elabaraio food, or vegetnble blood, is cut nfi'hy the lofs of loaves. Wo have noticed this particularly in the plum. ballslactory experiments have nol been made to determine whether il is moat ad vaniogeous to cm the crop when the grain is merely glazed, or to wait till it is perfect ly ripe. This will depend upon tho amount of loss, if any, in tho grain by early harvest tug. iiio relative vaino ot the grain nnu fodder, and the prospects of both being in jured by early Irusts, for neither are liable to suitor Iroin Irost alter the crop has been cut and put into shouks. It is In bu no ticed mat in early cutting, the stalks aro ucciiient, and u'jound in elaborate sap, oil ils descent from the leaves lo the grain, and that this supply nf food to the grain continues to ftiw probably for some days alter tho grain is in the shook, and if so, me grain tisolt continue to mnrovn. tho' we think it likely thai the crop undergoes ; uiu iriiioig uiminution. iJut ir frost is likely to ititotvcno bcroro tho complete t maturity of the crop, there is no doubt that the com will snfTir less in thn slunk than :il. . .. I. ; I .. I I. .. I-. ,1.1... ..,'.11 .. be materially injured by frost. Admitting that there is n small loss in grain by early Will MilllUIMir, ivillil.- HIV I'JVIUUI v III IHH :..!. 1 I... C A .1... It . ! cutting though it is undoubtedly less than when it is topped, the dilrercnco tit the value of the fuddur under the two modes ot management, is vastly in favor ol early harvesting. Wo do not pretend to calcu late to a nicely tho difference in nutritious properties of cornstalks cut in a succulent stain, early in September, well cured, and wll housed, and tlios; left, standing till O itnher or November, in the fi 'ld, but we should think it fifty per cent. Well cured corn stalks nfiord excellent winter lood for neat cattle, and wlcn fodder is likely t bo in demand, thi'y miy be made to contri lint u largely to the profits of the farm. Several of our acquaintance have kept their neat stuck almost entirely upon HiU fodder during the past winter, and wi have done the like, having first cut ours in a culling machine, and so far as wo can learn, the cattle kept upon them in an excellent con dition. Cultioilor. TO YOUNG MBN. There is no moral object so beautiful to me us a conscientious young man ! I watch him as I do a star in the heavens : clouds may bo before him but we know his light is behind lliom, and will beam a-'ain. The blaze ol others' prosperity may outshine him, but we Unow that though unseen he illuminates his own true sphere. He re sists temptation not without a st ruffle ; he hears the sarcasms of the profliiralo nnd it stings him, for that isthu trial of virtue, und tie liouis i lie wontiu with his own pure touch. llo hoods not the watchword of fashion, if il nail no sin ; t lie atheist who savs not on ly with Ins heart, but with his lips, 'there is no Uod ! controls htm not, for ho see the hand ol a creating God and reverences it or a preserving God and rcioicos in it woman is silenced by loud arms and hi d- ed by loving counsel, old aaa is protected by experience and uiinhood by itsstrenoth; lint a young man stands amongst thu temp tations of the world like a H.-lf balanced tower. Happy he who seeks nnd wains the. prop and slu-lior of Christian it v. Onward, then, conscientious youth ! raise thy standard and nerve thyself for fondness r i .. " r ll uod lias given intellectual power, awaken it in that cause; never let it bo said of thee, lie helped to raise tho tide of sin by pouring his influence into its channels. If thou art tecble in mental strength, throir not mat drop into a polluted channel. A wake! nrise.young man ! assume tlm benn liful garments of virtue ! it is easy, fearful ly easy to sin, it is difficult to be mire and holy. Put on thy strength then, let thy chivalry bo aroused against error, let truth oe ttty tatty love uetend her. Ei.oquen-ce or the P Assioxs. Crom well was one diy engaged in a warm ii-fii mailt with a lady on the subjects of oratory in which she maintained that elonuence could only be acquired by those who undo it their study in early youth, and their prac tice afterwards. The Lord Protector on the contrary, mjiutfined that there was an clo quonce which sprung from the heart; since when Hut was deeply interested in the at laiuuieni oi an on ect, n never tat eU to supply a fluency and richness of expression which would, in the comparison, render va nid tne studied speeches of the most cole brated orators. It happened some days af ter, mat tins lauy was thrown into a state bordering on distraction, by the arrest am: imprisonment ul tier husband, who was con ducted to the tower as a traitor to the "ov I'rninent. Phe agonized wife flew to the Iiird Protector, rushed through his guards threw herself at his feet, and with the most pulintic eloquence plead for the life and i itocnco oflier injured liu-band. His high "e-s maintained u severe brow, till the tie mi mor overpowered by tho cce-s of her 'Flings nnd the energy with winch she ha '..prii-jeii tliem, paused; then Ins stern countenance relaxed into a smile, and ex lending to her an order for the immediat iitierniion n her husband, he said "I think all who invi! witnessed this ncono will voti! on my side of tho question, in a dispute bo iwoi'ii ns t ie other dav. t hat I he i oniienp of the heiri u i;,r above that in leli.iino.ilK' itijoireu uy eiudy" ller husband was re i . . loved. larilUng Story, An extraordinary stn ry is Mini uy uaptnm Wallace, ol a lover and Ins mi-tress, who were saved in n sin gular mmnnr from llie hws of a shark. trausp irt with pirt of n regiment on board was ailiog wuli a gentle bruez" nlon" the coast nfCiylon; out! of the ofiicers wa leaning over tiia railing, conversing with young lady who had inspired him with the tender passion. The fur one was in the cabin in lhu act of handing a paper to her lover, wnen, overreaching herself, sho fel into the sea, and, supported by her clothes drifted astern ; the officer lost no tun ) n: plunging in after her, and upheld her with one arm. The sails were quickly backed, the ship lay to, and preparations were made to lower a boil, when to the dismay of all on b iard, a largo shark appeared under tho keel of thij vessel, and was gliding towards his victims. A shout of terror from l! agonized spectators called the attention of the ollicer to the approaching danger ; Ii saw the monster's fearful length ticarin him; he made a desperate effort, plunged nnd splashed the water lo frighten the shark, who turned and dived out of his sight The current had now carried the officer am: llie lady close lo tho vessel, when the shark appeared a second time, and was tho act ot turning on Ins back to sutz.' one of llie hapless pair, when a private of th officer's company, who was standing in the liaminocu tifiltings, jumped fearlessly over board with a bayonet in Ins hand, winch hu plunged into the back of tho shark, who instantly disappeared, nnd the three were released from their perilous situation. American Heroism. Tho Algcmeino Zaitung. a Gazette published in Vienna, gives an account ot Ihu upsetting of a plea sure b'lal to thn river there, by which the Princess Adelaide S iphia was precipitated into the water, nnd would have drowned, il had not been for the. her tc exertions of Mr IJl'II. a young American gentleman, son t Dr. iJoll, til 6. U. who happening to be near, in another pleasure boat, immediately Dliingcd into the river, (without knowing the quality of the lady,) anil rescued hnr Iroin n watery grave. Ho was next day invited to the imperial palace, where he was presented by the lovely S iphia herself with breast-pin, studded with diamonds, vain I at twenty thousand dollars. Our cor respondent, to whom we ore indebted for the papor, states that " il is impossible to conceive how high tho JWion American! che stands in this capital. The Austrian court is certainly the proudest in Kuropo. t the areli-diue Ins lately been heard to av mat mi Amotion gentleman is lullv on par with an Austrian Nobleinin." I should nol Ihurnloro be surprised if snmo thing further grew out. of this matter--particularly as young Dell is reinirknhly hand some and intelligent." JY. Y.D.Adc. From llie Rochester Intelligencer. WALLED HANKS Of THE AUSABLE. Our great country contains much of the wonderful in natural scenery winch has never received merited attention. Al most every one has hearJ the thunders of the Niagara, and fastened his eyes on tho romantic beauties oflho Hudson; nml the praises of these have been written and sung by all classes of tourists from the literary aristocracy down to tho exquisite ami the blue slocking. my outuct is nol so much lo inquire why those, who would fain be the admirers of Nature, crowd year after year, like in sects lo a candle, to the snme great foci of tglit soer, as to point out n neglected but very reunrltablo spot, winch I can confi dently recommend to the attention of the touri-t. If my roidur has ever sailed through the length of Like Clnmplain in either of the admirable siambo.its which daily nlv be twoen t. Joiins and Whitehall, lie cannot fail to havo been delighted with tho extra ordinary beauty of each shore; but may very possibly have lailed to learn tint ho should quit the steamboat at Port Kent. a small villogo in Essex Co.. N. Y. oppn site Burlington for a view which would pay one lor a voyage across tliu Atlantic. Four miles northwestwardly fioni Port Kent is the village of Birmingham, through which fl.nvs the Ausablo River, forming here a most beautiful cascade of 70 feel fall About lull" a mile from Birmingham, in the bosom of a deep forest, is the wonder, of which I have been speaki g. It consists in tliu perpendicular banks of llie river, which rise like wall on each side of the tream to thn height of two hundred feet The river, which at Birmingham may h thirty yards across, is here narrowed to the breadth of 20 feet, and rushes furiously along at tliu bottom of this enormous chasm. To stand on the banks and listen to tho torrent dashing nnd foaming aloni its narrow way, is terrific--nbjolululy apal ling. There arc several latteral fissures branching from the channel, as deep as the clinsm itself, and so narrow that you may step across. One of these affords the only access to tho bottom ol tins magnificent passage. You enter at the extremity am. piss down a dark narrow way, which ad mits but one person a ta time, until the do sending party by steps in the rock, not panly by a rude ladder, you reach a sort ot Table Hock, nearly on a level with the water. Hero you hrst become sensible nf the great depth nt the chasm. You look upward with nstouirhin'iut at the almost en .less height of tho Walls which enclose you; nnd you are tilled with admiration at leemg tho regularity and symmetry which Art can nevir eoirpass, combined with vast noss, which it in iv not dream of emulating The walls of this specimen of Nature's Misonry, arc as accurately perpendicular as the chisel and plumb could have made lliPtii.aud the numerous strata are laid with fiultless regularity and exactness. Adji cent to the Table Hock of which I hav spoken is an angle of wall roiniruablc lor being protected by n round column, of mountainous mzo and two hundred loot high ! Tne whole length of this extraordinary rock passage, is nearly a mile, lite wall are highest at tho place ol descent, but no place is their heighl less than one linn tlretl leei, except perhaps at the exlrnm ities. My reader is insured that iinuld hu visit the Wall II inks ol the Ausablo, ll will view a scene of rare nnd wonderful interest, scarcely inferior, in the opinion of many, to Niagara itself. VIA 1 Oil The Ivcesevillo Herald, in roinatking upon this subject says ; "It has often been tho fortune nf genius to have been neglected; mid minds formed for a high destiny, for the want of sympathy ami encouragement, hayt: gone down in obscurity to the grave. Not iinfreqnnntly (lie hand or Iriendship lias raked Irooi t lie i r mouldering a-hes. sparks ol heavenly on gin. But Nilure's works have rarely been thus m'f lected. The highest mountain anil the lowest valley the roaring cataract and the dark cavern, have been usually minor nil bv the footstoos uf man.

It never was the Poet's theme, nor the sub ieel of tho inspired pen of romance; or even scarcely visited, except by hero and thero n strav traveller. Yet no individual eycr stood on the edge of that frightful chasm, which is from onoi in two hundred fool deet). thirty foot in width pxteiidinr? in letiL'th ns fur as (he eye can reach, nnd ooked nilo the dark nby .T . . . . . i .. . below or penetrated tho ravine to the table rock, and looked up where vast rocks were hanging over him. hut felt thai hero was nn unrivalled exhibition of the majesty and sublimity of nature. At the bottom of the chasm, the river Ausablc buhbles, boils and dashes along, ns if it wore convulsed by the struggles of some mighty Wnlor-gotl; or one might fun ny tint old Neptune had jusl driven his car mi some holiday excursion through his boundless dominions ! The grandeur of the sceno is occasion ally softened into beauty, when lhu sun shines, by rainbows which fill this vast chasm. Then it looks as if hero were the Creator's great colors, Iroin which the Ince nf nature is annually beau tilled with her numberless variegated lints." Resolutions ResncLtims Miria JlonV. At meeting convened in l he American Tract nciety's rooms, at the call of several gentlemen, for the purpose of considering controversy existing between Mnrta Monk and the Romish Priests of the Mon treat uiocesp. I' oucis l). Allen Kq. was called to the Chair, and the Rev. Ocltivius Winslow nppointcd as Secretary. The following rrcarnbio nnu Kcsolutions were unanimously ndopled : Whereas. Maria .Monk has hitherto an nenli'd in vain to the Canadian authorities. ilh civil and ccclcs'ai-lical, to bring her charges against tho Romish Priests of tin Montreal Diocese to some equitable tribu lor investigation; nnd, whereas, she now appeals lo the people of the United Slates, invoking them to interpose in her behalf, and demand that jtiistice bo rcn- lerpd lo her. a lonely girl, in her peculiarly Irving nnd unequal controversy with th prie-ts of the R nnsh Church: and whereas the people of the United Slates bcsitlcr being always disposed to listen lo the vnic oflho Iriettdle-s nml the persecuted have deep and solemn interest in the matter ol lispnlc, in consequence of the rapid in creae of Popery and of I' jpish institution in llicir country: and also, in consequence ot the contiguity ot llie Uanadinn iNoo ncries. ami their intimate connection with and influence upon, the rising institution of America; Thercfiiru Itcsovcd, 1st, That it is tho sonso of thi meeting that the appeal of Maria Monk ti the American people, ought to bp promptly and efficiently responded to, so far as the nature of the case will admit of. Rosilved, 2d, That tho conduct of the Romish Montreal priests and their advo catcs, f I ) in altcmpiing,bv every moans, to asperse and vilify the character nf Ma ria Monk; and (2) in attempting, throug llie most artful deceptions, to decoy her into their hands; and (3) in refusing, for the space of one full year, lo allow the matter in controversy to be brought lo fair trial; bespeaks any thing rather than manly honest v and virtuous innocence. Resolved, 3d, That the recent examina inn, said In havo been made, of the Hole Dieu Nunnery de Montreal, is altogether unsatisfactory; becau-e (I ) tho gentlemen engaged in it have been fromlhe begmnnig, "ironglv and actively prejudiced against Alaria Monk.

J' or llieso reasons, nny report un favorable to Alaria Monk, made by tho-e li-quilified examiners, ought to have no inll'ieiice in deciding this coiitrovcr-v. Resolved, -It It, That the recent effort nf the priests and t heir defenders to muke ll apnear tiia) Maria .Monk, instead ol des cribing the Hotel Dieu Nunnery and its in males, has described a place which they cull a "Magdalen A.-vluni:" oml also their it tempi io prove by the affidavits of some unprincipled profligates and infidels, cnllmg I hem-elves piote-tante, and of ignorant nnpists. that she never was a veiled nun. hot tint she has been ot a bad character, living in brothels, &c; is highly cltarnc teri-tu: ol Jesuitism; adapted to blind mid bewilder the public mind, and turn it nwnv from the single point to which it ought to be directed, viz; an impartial examination ol the Convent. Resolved, 5th, That thn demand made and reiterated by Alarm Aluuk, miring in space of a lull year, viz: that herMill in per son accompanied by her friends ns well ns enemies, should be permitted to explore the Nunnery, is perfectly reasonable nnd right; nnd "that a further refusal, in the presenl stale of tho case, forthwith In com ply with il, on thn part ofthe Hotel Uiun Ecclesiastics, ought to be con-idurcd n equivalent to on acknowledgement the dimes alleged against thorn uy .Maria Monk. Resolved, Oth, That n committee of four gentlemen be now nppoinlotl, with power to till vacancies nnd locron-e their num ber, cither in the United Stales or in Cana da, to accompany Alaria Aliutk to Montreal so soon as the authorities uf Canada shall afford suitable protection to such a com milloe, and shall grant them the neces.ary permission anil facilities for thoroughly ex ploring the Hotel Dieu Nunnery, and Mich other establishments as nro said lo be con nected with it, viz' the Priests' Seminary, and the Congregational Nunnery , connect ed by subterranean passages, and also the Black Nuns' (-land, winch seems to be a comnonent part oflho Hotel Dieu Nunnery of Montreal; and that the following gen tlemen be appointed on that committee George Hall, H-q, late .Mayor of Brooklyn, Profusser S.
