ORIGIN AND NECESSITY OF AQUlX'ULTUilF.
The ol teat occupation of mankind was that of
cultivating the earrh ; and frwni ihe lime that the
first pur, 44 hand hi band, went forth exile Iron
Paradise, it was conatiluled the great buatneas of T
ihe human race. Cata was a tiller ol the ground,
Abel wa a wool grower, and Noah wa.s a ties
bandwian. To Musea we anj obliged to took for
Ihe first history of agriculture aa well as the earli
est record of our race. Traditionary account to
Utter writers of antiquity Iracu it history far
back towards the Noachuiu period, but the eatliest
catalogue ol domestic aa tnals, and lite first direct
itatmneul ol the condition ol patriarehsi siy.
are lo be louud m the history oi Abraham.
Ingenious writers, aa Slilhugn'-1 and Newton
Renuell and Grimm, nave endeavored to trace tho
origin f agriculture to Soale particular part of tho
world, and Egypt eoeio lo have been a Invonte
starting point with these and other writers. That
a secy-early and. JtJUcusiveljc gjuwai
Eg nt, cannot be doubted : but tho culture of irraii

by Ine human race, appear lu have been aa much

or Arabia, five thousand year ago diflere I eseen
tially from tbe present; and as wo know that thrio
th'Hisaud years have pubed ver them, and Icfl
their h.ibits and their lystema'of agriculture un
changed, those habit- aud systems may be con
aidered a fair specimen of those which the ncoei.
sitius of man first originated aud which have been
there perpetuated.
As must have been expected, tho implement
used in the infancy of agriculture wore of -he most -simple
kiuJ. The most ancient sculpture and
coins, and above all, the: paintings fiund tn such
perfect preservation in Ihe long-daserted temples
and tombs oi Egypt fiord the most ample evideoco
on litis point. Thai the most early instrument
uied to loosen the soil was a kind of pick, made at
fir at of stone, bound to a iiandlo of wood, is cer.
tain. Tbe employment of animals unload of hu
man labor iu tilling the seal, or tbe aubstiiution of
tho first for tho last, oarly occurred ; and Ihe un
nl' heifer in ploughing, or Where these were not
at hand, tho sub ti tut ton of ths ass, is clear from
the frequent historical notice of these facts.
It is not lo tiie oecessity wttich agriculture f irec I
upon men, of associating fir the protect ion and
preservation of their crops, that the origin of soci
ety may fairly be. traced ; otherwise t!ia world
had remained, a it noar jnostly is whom agrtcul-
mre is unknown, a nwsi uf isolated families, with
conflicting interests, and constant additions to the
elements of dissension and cuiilusiuu.- Tho right
oi s il, mo nature of property, the accumulation of
wealth, tli'i progress of civilization, aud the spread
of knowledge, are ill inoro or lcs., to be traced
hack to such associations, and to the permanent
occirvtnry ot the earth to which mrnvma t.ii-
ihe gave a lenilency aod ecuri!y. To Itve, it
was tiT.casary to now .to induce men to sow
se.-urity must be iveit, that whtl is sown hall be
reajwd for the bent-fit of the sower ; and an a .--riatiou
of fitmihes, or in other words, society, could
only do litis; aud thus to agriculture, to the lillin
of toe s :l. we owe civiiitatiua and its tnultuuJi i
mis bless.ngs.
