THE PLOUGHING MATCH. T theI Editor qf th Bensalla Ensign. Sir,-I am pleased to see the farmers bestiring themselves with laudable efforts to get up a ploughing match, and to know that it could not be in better hands than our Scotch friends, I,regret that, we have not established an Agricultural Society in'this district, for with R0 years' experience as a member of bne, I can fully testify to the immense benefit tobe derived to an agricultural district from such Ilstitutions, insuring an annual opportunity of exhibiting improvements in implements, the working of them and machinery to eco nomise manual labour, showing ot prime live stock (of which this distrioe has abiin dance), and the produce of the country ; with last, though not least, the favourable oppor tunity afforded to the ladies of displaying their horticultural products, and those of the dairy, &o.
