Extract from an Address delivered by John Da
vis Es j. of Augusta, before the member of
. It is now, however, time to conclude
by the mention of ;a few facts, which
will ettach the farmer to his profettion,
and thus be a main aid to agriculture.
In the East, Solomon and some of tine
Assyrian princes were fond of gar
dening, plantations, Lotany, or agricul
ture. Tbe Emperors of Chin, also,
both of ancient and modem times, on
one day of every y ear, in the presence
of thtir people, plough the soil in per
son, and on another dav they sow it ;
and similar vise examples have been
set 'in other Eastern i.atjons." Greiit
men likewise among the Carthaginians
and among the liomans, hVe written
on hu&bandrv ; and are mentioned with
honor to this day for having so em
ployed thtir time. Cincinnatus (the
patron of our. Ciucinnati societies) a
great comnundcr in Uome, was Uken
I rum his plough to be invested with
absolute power for six months, in or
der to rescue his country, when in a
state of. txtreme danger. In a latter
nge of the lioman government an ex
ample occurred of a still more mem
orable description, which shall be rela
ted as pearly .as jpossible,irt the words
of Mr. Gibbon. . The Emperor Dio
clcsinn, after IjcJhsd.yan'juished all Lis
enemies and accomplished all his pur
poses, aluntarilij retired to pass the
la&t nine yturs ok his life ia a private
condition. Reason (says Mr. Gibbon)
had dictated, and content seemed to
have accompanied retreat ; in which
he enjoyed, for a long time, the respect
of those Princes to whom ,he had re
signed the,. World. He preserved, or
at least, he soon recovered, a taste for
the most innocent, as well as the most
natural pleasures ; and hi leisure hours
were Sufficiently employed in building
planting and gardening. When soli
cited to resume the reins of government
by his former colleague, Maximian,
he rr jected the temptation ; and calm
ly observing, that if he could show
Maximian the Cabbage which he had
planted with his own hands he should
no longer be urged to relinquish the
enjoyment of happiness, for the purtuit
of power.
In Great liritaln, Mr. Arthur Young'
had as contributors to his publication
called the Annul of Agriculture not
only Dukes written in theirown names,
but the Kinjj of England (George 3d)
written tnder a borrowed name. The
memorable Earl Chatham and Charles
Fox, with almost the whole of the
nobility and gentry of the British
Empire, have interested themsqlvcs in
planting trt'csj or else in Gardening
on a larger or smaller scale j and ma
ny of them have superintended the
cultivation of farms and the breeding
of, farming1 animals. In our country,
three I'tesidentfl of the United States
have made themselves remarkable by
what they have written on the subject
of Agriculture and four of our Pre
sidents, when their Urm of office ex
pired, have nobly attended to the con
ducting fcf their estates j and the fifth
President has a mind too excellent,
and feelings too amiable and patriotic,
not to follow this useful occupa-ion.
On what does all this uniformity of
proceeding in intelligent and prosper
ous nations depend, but on the great
principle arid great ioterests of hu
man nature ? It has been well observ
ed, that ngriculture is perhaps the on
ly putsuit in which political men caa
find comfort, after they have resigned
their power j and this is not less true.
where they have Sense, virtue or do
mestic qualities. Agriculture is n
occupation which, by its infinite vane-
ty,its conxnnt exeruse of the imcllect,
the beaut' ful objects connected with it,
and the degree in which it flatters self
love when its works become perfect,
joined to the sense of the utility at
tached to it ' if Is an occupation, we
soy, which is capable of filling a large
void in the human mind ; even of af
fording something like consolation for
disappointments. In our da)s, In par
ticular, additional pleasures hre to be
obtained from this occupation. Be
sides the new objects and operations
which have arisen among ourselves, or
have been derived from foreign coun
tries men of science have laid open
to the intelligent agriculturist, to ma
ny recently discoverd processes oc
curring in vegetation, that he seem
as it were not only to be taken intf
partnership with the great provider of
all good, but he is even allowed to di
rect many of the efforts of nature, and
as it were to change her very consti
tution and habits.
If there be any truth then in the ob
servation, that those are among the
happiest of men who have laboring
hands, a thinking head, and a feeling
heart; and if the farmer joins to this
tlie reflection of the participation which
is thus allowed to him in the wotksof
Providence, and the avowed utility of
his profession; he will possess a con
scious dignity and satisfaction: and
mny safely say, without being held pro-
lane, or irartng to oe contradicted,
