The blackbird whistles from the thorny brake -, The mellow bullfinch answers from the grove; Nor are the linnets, o'er the flowering furze Pour'd out profusely, silent.
Seite 90 - ... therefor. The presidents of the several county societies and of the American institute shall annually transmit in the month of December, to the executive committee of the New York state agricultural society, all such reports or returns as they are required to demand from applicants, for premiums, together with an abstract of their proceedings during the year...
Seite 7 - There is no profession which can be compared in importance with that of agriculture, for to it belongs the production of food for man and animals ; on it depends the welfare and development of the whole human species, the riches of states, and all commerce. There is no other profession in which the application of correct principles is productive of more beneficial effects, or is of greater and more decided influence.
Seite 39 - Some winged moths of the first brood begin to appear towards the end of April, or early in May ; those of the second brood are most abundant in August ; but between these periods, and even later, others come to perfection, and consequently some of them may be found during the greater part of the summer. By day they remain quiet on the sides or in the crevices of the bee-house ; but, if disturbed at this time, they open their wings a little, and spring or glide swiftly away, so that it is very difficult...

Seite 27 - ... here to call attention to the amount of injury to the hearing which occurs during the summer season from imprudent bathing. Dr. Sexton, author of the report already quoted, and chief surgeon of the New York Ear Dispensary, says, in a very elaborate paper published in a prominent medical periodical: " It is not easy to make an estimate of the number of aural cases (of injury) arising from bathing during a single season, but with the best data within reach, it is safe to say that the physicians...
Seite 85 - In the morning, I first met her at prayers ;' for, to the honor of England, there is scarcely a family, among the hundreds whose hospitality I have shared, where the duties of the day are not preceded by...
Seite 85 - In person, in education and improvement, in quickness of perception, in facility and elegance of expression, in accomplishments and taste, in a frankness and gentleness of manners tempered by a modesty which courted confidence and inspired respect, and in a high moral tone and sentiment, which, like a bright halo, seemed to encircle the whole person, — I confess the fictions of poetry became substantial, and the beau ideal of my youthful imagination was realized. But who was the person I have described...
Seite 27 - It will not be doubted, that with reference either to individual or national welfare, agriculture is of primary importance. In proportion as nations advance in population, and other circumstances of maturity, this truth becomes more apparent ; and renders the cultivation of the soil more and more an object of public patronage. Institutions for promoting it, grow up supported by the public purse : And to what object can it be dedicated with greater propriety...
