WHO ARE TIIK MOST SUCCESSFUL FARMERS Books and papers, and in intimate acquaintance with their contents, have long been in-dispensable to certain classes, to whom the uneducated have given the credit of being wise, knowing, cunning men. Many mechanical pursuits, and the common branches of farming, have, on the contrary, been conducted by men entirely ignorant of the laws of nature, except so fir as their own observa tion taught them therein. Many of these 'have been careful observers of the visible things in nature, and in ordinary circumstances succeeded very well. But l heir sons, less observing, less industrious, and more surrounded with other means of obtaining a living, have neglected their farms, or used ihem as a secondary means of subsistence, till exhaustion and consequent diminution of crops became u matter of serious alarm ; and many, rather than attempt to restore to fer tility their worn-out soils, have gone West, to pursue the same exhausting process there Others, of a more enquiring mind, or at least a less roving, adventurous disposition, have set about the inprovemcnt of their old fields, aud though many failures occurred, they were sensible that a better knowledge ot the first principlesof their avocation would lead to success. Information was consequently sought after and to some extent obtained. Agricultural publications were encouraged by the few, who believed in progress aud improvement, and men of talents and high reputation turned from the political excitement around them, and gave their attention to rural economy. Judge Unci, in the lith volume of 'flit Cultimtur, after mentioning that in his younger days, while conducting a political journal, he received several exchanges, distinguished political journals, published by men in high standing, says : " These gentlemen nre all now engaged in other mid we believe better employments in improving the mural, so.'.ial and agricultural condition of their country ; and may suet-ess and Iiappiiies3 crown their labor; and may others, seeing their good works, profit by their example. We hail tin: increased circulation of agricultural jour-n ds as highly auspicious totlie best interests f our country. Were their circulation increased lilty-fold, the country woild be proportionally benefitted." Our system of husbandry, in the main, has been wretchedly bad. It has greatly deteriorated the old set tled portion of our continent, aud is rapidly I'xh lusting the urgin fertility ol the We-t. These agricultural periodical are calcu-I iled to arrest our thmn-liill course, to expose the errors of our practice, to introduce improvement, and to elevate the character Ami standing of this great businc-s of our nation. They will produce a benign effect wherever they circulate, and it is the inter est of all to endeavor to extend their sphere of usefulness." In the 1st volume of the Cultivator (111) he say that from one, in I HI!, the number of agricultural paper had increased to twenty, and in the liih volume ( Isl'.t), to over thirty. Their number in still increasing, and the publication of agricultural books is not confined to a few printers or small editions. C. M. Saxton, 1 .12 Fulton-street, New York, lias acquired the title of agricultural book publisher, and by his liberal discount on several works at one order, has scattered agricultural information broadcast. In these books ire found the writings of Johnston, Norton, mid nuinler of others, nhowing thn practical application of science lo agriculture. Chemistry, with its jars, crucibles, aud other strange things, is no longer a wonder or terror, but comes to lay before the lartncr the very things he needs most to understand, but could never determine by any application of his unaided scn"C. Chemistry teaches firmcrs that perfect noil contain several di-tinct elements, and that these enter in a greater or less proportion iiiln every plant ; anJ continued removal of plants (or cropf.) necessarily exhaust these element, after which the same crops will ticrt attain per fret ion. It also teaches how to restore in the cbcnet manner the element (or constituents) thus removed. On this point. Prof. M ars, ronultmg agriculturi-t, says: " Within the l ist three years we hive visited many farm, and some of the owners of these firms sent certificates of result. One represented that, under our advice, he had added the missing constituents lo hi soil, at an expene of only four dollars twelve and one-hall cents per acre, with proper tillage, and produced, in consequence, the following crops : Corn, 12'' tuhel of cars per acre. where formerly, with much larger ex penditure lor manure, but 3(1 buslnls of! race helled corn had been produced. Potatoes. 310 bushel per acre. Mangold-wtirlzel, IG Ions per aere, and other crops in proportion. AiMrtlwr rr-precnted that, on a piece of ground winch harl U-en cniderrd otter among farmers, though at first ridiculed (as almost every thing good has been), as we shall see by the following remarks of a lecturer in New Jersey : " Our first regular course of lectures on Scientific Agriculture was delivered in a town in New Jersey, ami when we returned to the hotel and retired to our room, after the first lecture, we heard distinctly self-styled farmers berating us most soundly. 'Hang this book-farming,' said one ; give me practical tanning ana none of your scientific nonsense.' ' Pretty busi ness for a man to come from Essex County to show us how to Jarni I says another. ' Wonder if he thinks he can learn farming by reading books V says a third. And then these wise-acres had a general laugh. We recognized the voice of one whose certificate we now have that his crops have been more than doubled by our advice. I lie conclusion arrived at, then, is, that those who arc most industrious and observ ing, and the most careful readers of the prac tice, observation and experience of others, coupled with close study of those sciences most applicable to their vocation, are at the present day the most successful farmers.

The mo-' itltotcllau!. pie will be accomplished, and what will be the permanent form of their civilization. To find a rational answer to these questions we must divest ourselves of all political prepossessions and look with enlarged vision at the matter itself and all its accompaniments. There are those among us who esteem it little short of treason to our country, to admit that any good can be done in the old world except by settinp: up repub lics. We have the misfortune to disagree entirely with these gentlemen. We are not so intolerant to decry all wisdom that is not exactly after the pattern of our own institutions. On the contrary, we believe that there are forms of government very far from republican, which are well fitted to develop the civilization, and provide for the social welfare of many nations in the old world. To use bolder language, but such as may be abun datitly justified by facts, we are of the opin ion that the worst thing which could bs done POLITICAL DEVELOPMENTS IV 12 r- was within the present century that the in many parts of I-uropa, jia.-t now, would ROPE THE SLAVONIANS.

Our readers have probably heard, within a few days, a considerable ringing of bells in the city, which many of them, no doubt, arc aware is occasioned by the Telegraphic Fire Alarm. As no really correct description of this invention has been given, an attempt will be made to :vc an intelligible idea of a system in which all arc interested. It must be premised, liowever.that this fire alarm system, with its complicated machinery, is one of the most dillicult things in the world to describe on paper, in such a manner that the eye shall convey the idea to the brain. The first great principle and starting point, on which all depends, is based upon the fact in science, that a piece of soft iron, having a coil of copper wire around it, which wire has been wound with thread mid painted, has the properties of a load-stone when a current of electricity is passed through the wire. The iron has tlic power of attracting a piece of steel as long as tha electricity remains i.i the wiro, but loses the power when thi current j ceases, rsuc.i an apparatus is caned an eiec-tro-magnet. Keeping this in mir.d, we will commence a description of the wires which ere fcen lire spider's threads above t!;e tops of houses, anil stringing f.otn the church steeples. 1' roin the c.ty building in Court h.piare, wires radiate as follows : to the north, south, and South Boston. Tliesa wires arc called circuits, and are of two kinds alarm and signal ;hree of each. Tho signal circuiu demand our first at tention. All round over the city arc little boxes marked Signal Stations, with the va rious numbers and districts marked on them : as for instance. No. 1, Dist. 2. No. 4, Dist. (i, which lead us to infer that the city is divided into districls, and that there are numbers of stations in these districts. This is the case ; there arc seven districts, aud forty stations in all, in those districts. Let us get a key and open the box on Fan-euil Hall. In it we shall find a little crank that we can turn round, a key that we c; n tap, and a lililo electro-magnet such as we have already described. While wc nre look ing at the apparatus, somebody the rrreal establishment of Ruggles, Nourse &, Mason is on fire; wc instantly turn the crank a dozen time, and before we get the teuili turn, Old Brattle Street, and King's Chapel, and seventeen other bells all over the city arc going " boom, boom, boom," till twenty or thirty blows luue been struck ; then all stop for a moment, then a single " boom," then a pause of eight second., ihen another " boom," another pause, aud another " boom," and so on. Now what does this mean, mid what has caused all of this clutter ? The thirty blows arc to call the firemen's attention, ami the single " booms " to let them know the district, if the alarm had come from the second district, two blows would have been struck, and then an interval ; if the third, three. But what has the turning of the crank to do with ringing the bells I When wc commenced turning, a little bell in room No. 8, City Building, began to ring, and instantly arrested the attention of the superintendent, or one of his assistant, who was silting by the fire reading the Mtirniiig Jaurntil. He looked on a slip of paper which had run through a machine that was started by our crank, nnd saw several dots ami marks upon it, which told him at once that the fire was near Fnneuil Hall, which is in district No. I. All he had to do was to turn lo a little box before him and press down an ivory knob, and" bang, bang" went the bells once in two Fcconds till over the city, till the thirty blows were struck, ulien be let go the first knob nnd pressed down another, which was maiked I, and then in every eight seconds one stroke would he given on the various bells ns long as he held it down. This last is the ul.irm circuit, and embraces nineteen bells. The whole operation is very much like having somebody w ith a straw tickle the bottoms of your baie feet, and you, instantly feeling it nil over the UmIv to the brain, kick back lustily in reply, to let them know you are wide awake and ready for any emergency. The tickling is the signal, ami the kicking the iilarm. But district No. I is large in territory ; how shall the firemen know whether to eo lo Faneuil Hall or Charlcstown bridge t The engineers in passing one of the signal boxes opens it and makes several taps upon the key, and instantly he hears a ticking ; lie counts till it stop, and then knows that the number of ticks correspond w ith the number of the box that gave the signal. Rut it happens that i he fire in Ruggles &. Co.'s store docs not amount to much after all only a In tic smoke. Can't wc slop the engines from coming ! Iet ns see. An engineer comes lo llie box on Faneuil H ill and taps upon the key. The meat the hammer falls, a spring and other connivances fix things all right for another blow. Let us go back to the City Building again! and take another hjk. We look upon one side, of the room and see a chu'k that ticks slew and sure the moments yof the passing hour, with several wires running from it. Hut where is the pendulum aud the weights f We hear a clicking behind us, and discover a pendulum sw inging " solitary and alone." Cut where arc the weights I O, up stairs irt another room, and arc nothing but sonic' pieces of zinc, platinum, and some liquid iir a box, w hich has a wire going out of caclr end and running down to the pendulum or it: short a ralvnnie. battery that carries art electric clock. This is a very peculiar clock ; you may have the pendulum in one part of the house, and the dial in another; you may not only have one dial, but ten. twenty; fifty, an hundred ; not only in the room, hut in other rooms all over the building, out doors, and all over the city, if you will only take the trouble to run a couple of wires to thenr and all carried by the same pendulum, and each keeping the same time. The superintendent tells us that it don't want winding up only once or twice a year put a little sulphuric acid into the fittlrf box up stairs. The particular uuly required of this elocky is to tell the person stationed at the centraf office the condition of the wires. Every hour it sends a current of elfctricity over the wires if they are not broken, it rings a little bc'A ; if they are broken, no bell ring.,-and the operator must set himself to find out the troubl The uses to wiiich this clock may bo a implied, the corrcctne3 of its time, nnd tho beauty of the invention, are worthy of study, and may be made the subject of another paper. There i more machinery in the centraf office necessary for the operation of the alarm When a blow is struck on a church bell, a hand on a dial mo-es forward one degree, so that a glance at the dial tells the operator when they want winding up for he knows how many blows they will strike before the run down. There nre various other contrivances necessary for the working of the sinking machines, tsucli a contrivance to stop a machine from striking when the hell is ringinfj,-and restoring it when the bell stops, aud also a little bell that give the sexton notice if ho' is ringing when an alarm lakes dace. The system is almost completed, and in a' short time the "Athens" of America will have another evidence to show that she is7 worthy of the title. There is no doubt whatever that it will work. It has been dc' vised with a great deal of ingenuity, and though it may appear complex, it is very simple in its operation. The construction-of the striking machinery, key-board and clock, reflect great credit upon Messrs. Ifow ard & Davis, of Roxbury, who, as manufacturers of stccplc-clocks, balances, &c, are well known. The rest of the office apparatus is from the well-established firm of 1). IJnvis, w ho has so long stood at the head in manufacturing telegraphic instruments. The cily arc greatly indebted to Dr. Chan- niiig lor bringing out the system, aud to tho superintendent, Mr. Farmer, for perfecting' and rendering it into such admirable order. The members of the past and present City Government who have supported and carried out tho system, are worthy of all praise. AnJ the fire department, who, through nurd ami mire, storm and sunshine, run to stay tho' destroying element, and this great community of one hundred and forty thousand inhabitants, will soon return them their ainecro' thanks. occupy tnc ea-iern .can continent.
