1. AGRICULTURAL ? Preservation or Manors. S. A. Law, Esq, in his address before, the Delaware county, (N. Y.) Agrieultnral Society, makes tha following sensible remarks in regard to the preserTation manure. While the full value of manure is admit led, how few farmers have their yards so toprepare and reserve the greatest amount of fertilizing compost. Instead of barn and stable yards made lowest in the middle to re tain those liquids which chemical analysis and actual experience have shown to be more valuable, and to contain in a more concentra ted form, farm yards are on sloping ground, as if constructed purposely for waste and not unfrequently with a rivulet near by, to trry away all that may wash into it: instead of yards, in the fall of tho year, filled with compost from the swamp, or from ditches, to be converted into manure, we see them emp ty, and usually provided with a ditch to car ry off all moisture. Farmers who mean to be economical who indulge in no unneces sary expense...

Among literary men, a scholar ; a lawyer at one bar ; a b'hoy . rd another ; before the poople an orator in the parlor, a dandy, he is all things to Ell men, and has well learned to act at Rome as the Romans act j to do in Turkey as the tur- klesdo. - . .
