JBOM THE PITTSBURG MliRCURY. , 5
. Mr. Printer I -am. one o a familv of
to usf from bur common ancestor, a wrsc
arid very,cxtensive farm, capable of van-'
jas degrees of cultivations and yielding - a
reat variety of agricultural productions.
This firm, When fi t settled by on r grand -"
father, held" subject to a.triflns;rent
, to a.?distant relation ;J. but owing- to some
disagreement about the terms of the lease-,
my grandfather, after much altercation,
and an expensive lawsuit, finally succeed -
a in retaining - Dossession, free frotrt all1
incurnbrantfev 'By regular and.industrious
habits, he was enabled to make Very con-,
siderable iniprovements on -his farm ; he
regulated -and adjusted , its different de
partmerits and finally, left it a fair inhe
,ritance, with but little embarrassment to
1 my father. After, ta(farm carnr into my
iiather? possessicriJie groi3iallv improv
ed it, andreared to rnanhWd tVentv-four
sturdy and industrials stirs. The bid gen-"
tleman.howeveri wearied ;ar.d tired -with
the continual laboM incident toW exten
sive an establishment, Mt upon an expe
dient for securing tbe getieral in t eresb of
his family, and at the anie time for main
taining bh own dignity and comfort. He
drtidecl the wUoU tract into Uwenty-four
excellent farms, after' reserving out f it
a small patch, for lus own. house and gar
dea. He apportioned one of these farms'
to iach ofhissons, allowing "them, as a.
stimulus i to activity Wd industry, the
whre product of the soil. But that thr
unit) t i his familf might be preserved, he
lock upon himself the superintendence of
the general concerns 'of the whrle family
By i his means he secured to himself all
that authority- and respect, which is so
desirable in old age,V.vvhilst it afforded
him, at the same -ime, leisure to reflect
upon, and devise means '! for promoting
the general interests of his children- The
oldentleman;-however, was careful to
avoid a state of absolute dependence ;on
-them ; and he, therefore, made it a con
dition, that on all the foreign articles
which were1ntroduced into, and.consum
ed by the families of. his respective suns'.
heMould have the right, of levying.a tri
fling tax, necessary for his . comfortable ;
subsistence." . This arrangement appear
ed, iij on reflection, good one. On the
one hand,' it faflbrded the eld gentleman a
means of comfortable subsistence whilst
ca the other, it serye&as a stiranlus to the
boys to exert all their industry for the
maintenance of theirjrespective families.
For some, time things appeared to go on
in the best order, awl'all parties seemed
to live' comfortably, and eyen thrire, un
derthis hSppy arrangements
. But the wisest ami most prudent calcu
lations arc sometime frustrated by unex
pected occurrences, j: The gro ing pros
perity of thefarrr.er and lus sons, soon en-
1 eared the eaele-eyed attention of a foreign
- meicliant';":whow opened a .splendid stre
iRCTatiate him sell with our tmilv. tiis
store was net only v. ell stocked, withi-ve-n-
article necessary for ''family. purposes,
but it also Contained many articles of fine -
ry and! extravagance suited to inflame
the nnnds of-tne children. ye soon com
menced tramckir.'vith him. We at first
gave V hin t'.Ve surplus productions-of rur
JarnTs, for the necessary articles ct family
use : ind he," in return, gave us" a- liberal
and gMierous price for our. productions.
Thc'iU'd fentlkman,cur father, was much
pleased 'wit I: ibis ai riTig-ment.; It afford
ed the brj nlv.re time to attend ;to titt ir,
farms ; c brwdes: ever article we bought
at the store, yielded a trifling tajc to the
old gentleman, and of course . increased

We at last began , to think, that (as w e

selves entitled to some of . tie silks, rib

gentleman, that if lie. would suffer us to,
make the goods want, ourselvesi we
would pay him ar tax on them for his sup
port, and we could then, live independ
ent of the fortign merchant, and the .busi
ness of our farms would be conducted with
all its former prosperity. We i harv e as
sured hint that some of our families could
make the articles wanted, at, home, 'and
would be willing to exchange them for the
pjduce of the farms cf their brother. But
the. eld gentleman is. so wedded to his old
habits that he cannot be -induced -to listen
to us, notwithstanding the interests "of his;
whole family are 'at stake !
Latterly, however, he has begun to feci
a little f ;r our embcivrassTm-hts. Our fa-1
mtlies were utterly unable to purchase as
many goods last year, as in former ones :
and as the old gentleman's expenditures
have increaftd (he having too many lazy
aiul .extravagant servants about him,) he
has of course been obliged to borrchv mo-
&ncy th "ansiver his present demands 4 "This
5 IT circumstance has at last .induced him to
j4rrTiise, that if these difficulties should

''vTheVerMrPrinter, are the difficulties
which now disturb cur. heretofore happy
familv. and eive us ereat uneasiness. If
the products of our farms would' pay for
the goods, which the old gentleman wish
es us u purchase, ; in order tnatvne, may
receive his incomeiwe would notso much
care ; but as It is, we think it madness tor
bur families to continue buying goods from
the foreign"-merchant, with the certain
prospect of vultimat.e ruin ! and all. this
too, at a time '".when All that' we canlraise
on our beautiful and numerous farms, is
rotting onqur hands ! h Now, as' the old
gentleman is just beginning to listen to.a
little reason," and as his prejudices see m

of the land in each subject to taxation, or

of land for the purposes of promoting edu
cation jn the states in .which they have
btfen granted, in the opinion of . the Cgiri
mUtee, a consideration has been rendered
therefor on the part of those states, by
the increased value which the population
and improvement of the state gave to the
unsold public lands, and by ' the compact
noi to tax the lands pf the United States
at any timebefpre" they were sold, nor
until the, lapse of five years thereafter.
The lands, therefore; granted to some .
or the new states, for the purposes of edu
