The “FaT CoNTEiBUTOit" on FaW
Life.—Being invited reoently to deliver
an agricultural address Before a Har
vest Home Association in Central ffevT
York, on the oooasion of their atlnuaA
festival, the “Fat Contributor" consent*
ed. We make the following eloquent
extract from hie address :
Although fortune (or fierhape the
want of it) oast toy lot amid the strug
gling multidude of a great city, where
you wouldn’t see a farm to a walk of
several squares, where there are no
meadows with their waving potato tope,
or wheat fields ripe for the woodman’s
axe, yet I have felt a great interest in'
the farming classes, and I flatter my-
self that I know something of the noble'
pursuit you follow. I will say here,'
that it has been the ambition of my life
to be un honest old farmer—to earn my
bread by the sweat of a hired toan'e
brow. How delightful life en a farm
must be. I can imagine what vigor ie
imparted to the frame, and what strength
to the musolee, by reciisingto the (hade
and watching the mowers ae they gai
ly swing their threshing machines, and
then what an appetite ont mast acquire
for the noon-tide lunch by observing
the merry reapers at work digging their
potatoes, and their—theirtallapplee.
How often, in imagination, have I fol
liwed you, as you went forth a summer’s'
morning when the dew was on toe grass'
seed, neatly attired in white linen suits
with patent leather boots, with your
oorn-shellers swung highly over your
shoulders, to cut your winter’s wood.
I have aiemed to hear your merry songs
sweeping up from the meadows, as you
gather your watermelons and turnips
into your—corn-houses, while mingled'
with the busy hum of your sorghum’
evaporators, came the musical bleating
of y.ur cattle, and the lowing of yodr
sheep and poultry.
Tlien the winter aomes, and the slid
prevents you from continuing your bay.'
ing, and the cold north wind sbakeß'bff
vonr strawberries, I picture yon sitting
by your gas stoves, mending your fab*
mng mills, in preparation for Yoiit
spring plowing, or amusing yourself
with Beadle’s Dime Books’On Agricul
Winter on a farm, how* beautiful !-
What a pleasure it must be to fodder
the ohiokens in the dairy, and to hear
the musioal ducking of the pigs as' they
clamor for their oats and hay. Then
when the winter evenings come, and the
robin and bobolink have oeaSbd their'
song and gone to roost on the well'
sweep, I oau imagine no greater delight
than to gather around the blazing fire
place, regardless of the fasoinations of
the storm without, and amuse yourself
with apple pearing, knitting, base ball.
Bcven up, and other athletic games.
I envy not, then the p3le dyspeptic
who bends from morning till night over
hi* sordid ledger in the crowded marts'
of trade, or the child of idleness and al
fluenoe who grows prematurely old’
amid the dissipations of a life like yours
whioh I believe I have in no way over
drawn if they did they would trans
port their cities iuto the oountry, or
transform them into agricultural com
munities by act of the Legislature.
Tha first snow of the season com
menced falling at St. Paul, Minne
sota, on the morning of the 29th
illt. The storm reacaed Madison,
Wisconsin, about noon, and at five
o'clock in the afternoon it was show
ing quite fast in Chicago.
