*UBLISHERs' ADvTERTIs EMENT.

Of all the interests in a civilized community, agriculture is, without doubt, the most important. In itself, it affords to the most numerous portion of every such community an eminently healthful and virtuous occupation, and a generous maintenance; while, with the surplus of its productions, it sustains all the other classes of society. It furnishes, moreover, to manufactures their most important materials; to commerce and trade their most numerous and valuable commodities; and, in short, to all the diversified branches of human industry, their principal encouragement and support. No country, therefore, can be in a condition truly prosperous without a flourishing agriculture.

To contribute towards the advancement of this all-important branch of our national industry, the following work has been prepared; and comprising, as it does, a great variety of communications, &c., from the most distinguished practical and scientific agriculturists of our own and other countries, the publishers cannot doubt but that it will prove

highly interesting and useful to the American farmer. The name of the Hon. J. Buel they deem a sufficient guarantee that the articles have been judiciously selected, both as it regards their intrinsic merit and their practical usefulness.

New-York, August, 1839.
