Yet it U painful to add, wa are at Uui moment in a ttata of itxo - lato'ipora&caiatheAntpridciplei, of the Ant of sciences, at connected with iheaiiitry. We are alto totally unacquainted with the fundamental froundi of thote great modem Improvement! in sgricultore, a it ii now practised in Kngiaad. and other rountnet of Lurope Taking the year 1640 u an epoch which ter - Bloated toe emigration from flagranti and llol land, which form the main basis of our popul tion, we may. reasonably conclude those emi fraott brought with them the knowledge of ag. ricaltura uite tilted in thote countries at that period. Then descendants in the mceetsive genera - tioni have tenaciously followed the foottteps ol their predecessors, without daring to indulge in now experiments, or weighing well the poesibili tr of a snore productive 'husbandry. But how coald a remedy be applied, having no central point ofcoeamunicatioa - - ao lamp to guide their steps nor measure u iiimuiate snorts or excite oampeUUoar It i - eauirinr the loortft life of man to acaulre useful experience in agriculture, now much valuable i&fonnatioo hai been swallowed up in the grave, for tha want of inch a point of communi cation, which otherwiie might have been perpe tuated, the common property of mankind I To guard hereafter against tuch a waste of I experience and to reach the important point in view, your committee deem it important to take a coocwe review of the hiitory ot agriculture in England, from an early period, to the epoch of 1040, and iU program from that year to the pre - aent time. Whan Jaliut Cmsar invaded England, he found the people in a state of barbarism. The Romans were then the only people who possessed tha true knowledge of agriculture at an art, tail they introduced partially into England. The yeomanry of that country remained at a ttutiou ary point, for about eleven ceuturiei. Then, the Normans introduced some addition! to the art, alto many valuable Inrui'ing utensils It was not cultivated in any manner as a science, till aboat CAy yean previous to an emi - (ration of twenty - one thousand people to New - England, from waicn sim - k upwards of two mil lions of people now inn mm id one century mora, tbit numbr will probably be swelled to the astonishing magnitude of upwards ol twenty (Billions.. . from 1640 to (he present time f 173 yean) Esgland bat coo tinned to advance with rapid atridet, la uie science ol tgncunure : in iaru - ular, in the last fifty yean, owing to the ardent Herts of philosophers and patriot! j especially to tha enlightened genius of sir John - Sinclair, through whose instrumentality a national board of agriculture was established. ', As wa bava remained nearly stationary in the am period, all their acquisitions are in cooie - aeeooe beyond our knowledge. To redeem, ineretore, uiis ereai waste oi time aad knowledge, presents to this legislature a fair opporlumty to distinguish this session in the page of our history : And your committee with due deference, beg leave to add as their opinion, that It become an imperious duty to that end to adopt enlarged, vigorous, and decisive measures. m. i i ' ; ,i i t .

PETER R. LIVINGSTON, chairman of the senate. SAMUEL LAWRENCE, oo the part of the assembly. SEW - YOIIK EVENING POST. FRIDAY, MARCH 13. Tkt Jttt of Harbor - muter. Th Boston Palladium, remarking upon the article in last week's Evening Poet, respecting the unreasona ble and exorbitant fees our statute allows the harbor - master to demand of coasting vessels, says, " We believe no feet are demanded of coasting vesstls iu any other part of the United States. The arraugement now complained of it particularly burdensome on Massachusetts, for only coasten from adjoining states are exempt from it." If this be the rase, tha next thing we may expect to hear of, will ba countervailing lawt in every ttate, that hat a port of entry. But will not thii bo very like an interference with the powers granted to congrest to " regu late commerce among the several states." If so, will it nut be well to consider the force of this objection before we - proceed further? It hat been stated to me by those very competent to speak on the subject, that the office of harbor master it the most lucrative in the gill of the couucil of appointment, and it eitimatcd at tieenly thousand dollan, The Forum. Tbit evening, as will be seen by the advertisement, the question to be debated at tha Forum ia " Ought imprisonment for debt to bt continued and the proceeds of the evening are very appropriately allotted to the relief of imprisoned debtor. Wa ar assured that the audience will be numerous. The inhabitants of Pine - street would feel themselves much obliged if the street cotnmis - aiooer would cause the large heap of dirt piled up in that street, to be removed. If suffered to remain over night, they may be the cause of some serious accident, both lo man and horse. We hop tha Grand Jury, now in session, will uot forge to pfMout the bogs running at large, aa intolerable nuisance. It is the duly of every citixen who ba the reputation of the city at heart, to enter hit protest against their being permitted, by law, to occupy tb side walla as well as tha streets, to the exclusion of our fe males.

To be entitled to a pension, th claimant shall make a declaration under oath or affirmation, before the district judge of the district, or before any judge or court of record of the county, state or territory in which the claimant shall reside setting forth, if he belonged to the army, the company, regiment, and tin to which he belonged, the time he entered the service, and the time and manner of leaving (be service if of the navy, the name of the vessel, and particular service in which employed, and tha time and manner of leaving the service, and shall offer such other evidence as may be in hit power and in case the judge be tatiified in the premises, be tha II certify the tame to the secretary of the department of war, who shall place the applicant on the pension bill. N. B. It doe not appear that a claimant u obliged to make a declaration, or exhibit proof to the judge, or secretary of war, that by reason of reduced circumstances, he stands in need of assistance for hi support. Perhaps in hit application to the judge, before whom he it to make affidavit of service, he will be required as mere recital to state, that hit cir cumstance! are tuch at to require assistance for hit rapport. Erratum In the article on pauperism signed a tubteriber inyetterdayt paper, instead of M administering" read diminishing, so that the sen tence may stand thus : " Let then its attention be confined (o the adop tion of measures for diminishing the ttated and permanent fund of charity which ia various ways it to profusely diitributed." From our Correspondent. Daily Advertiser office, ) Albany, March 11. Medical Bill. We congratulate the public on th final passage in the house of assembly, of the bill further to regulate the qualification! of student of physic and surgery, and we hope its fate will be similar lo tne senate. A violent attack was mode upon the bill in the house yesterday, on it third reading, on a nn - tion made by - Dr. Sergeant, to re commit it to a committee of the whole. Messra. sargeant and Root spoke in support of the motion, and Messrs. Meigs,' Oak ley and uuer against it. Toe question lor re committing was decided in the negative by a majority of 7. fit patted the day before bv a ma jority of 4. Liosea Door. Toe bouse in committee of the whole, took up the consideration of the report of the committee on the petition of Devoe Bailey, Miirt aconeid and ouiers. l nis appears to be a very important case. The petitioners claim, un der a title derived immediately from the state, a tract ol land containing upward or City thousand acres, in the county of Putnam. These land are now claimed by John Jacob Astor, of tne city ol new - York. Mr. Meiga moved that the committee rise and report, and ttated at a reason for hi mo tion, that tubiect of tuch an important and delicate nature would probably arite in the ditcutbion of the report, that it would become necessary to close the doors of the house. Mr. Oakley, (the chairman of the committee who made the report,) did not object to rising and reporting i but he had no idea that it woeld be necessary to dote the doors of the House. The committee rote, and the report wa made the order for to - day. In the House of Assembly, yesterday, the bill from the Benate, authorizing a special session of Uie court oi trrors to be held in September next wa taken up ia committee of tne whoe, and passed, after striking out the words " City Hall, in Uie city of New - York," and inserting " the Cap - itot, in tbe city of Albany." .

Mr. Meigs, pursuant to previous notice, broH in a bill entitled " An act to incorporate the Lyceum of Natural History in the city of New - York," which was read twice and committed.

Kead twice and ordered to be printed.
