We have often icen surprised at tlie idea which many farmers entertain, that it would very much facilitate their agricultural Ope- rations if they could adopt the use of horseSj and dispense entirely with ,that of working bullocks on their farms. On the contrary we consider oxen as peculiarly well suited for Van Dicmen's land. Though slower in their motions than horses they are mucti safer, not only on the roads with carriages,' .coing up and descending the many steep1 places with which the surface of this hilly island abounds, but with the plough in new ground imperfectly cleared of roots' and Stones, they are far less liable to accident. The chief objection we have heart! urged against the use of oxen in this country is the trouble they occasion in finding them when they are to be yoked in the mornings, and their occasionally straying away and getting impounded. But this only proves the great- er docility of this most useful animal, and the economy with which it is supported. For ...
