6. The FARMERS MAGAZINE, a Periodical
Work, exclusively devoted to Agriculture and Rural Af-
fairs, for 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803, & 1804. 5 vols. 2l.
3s. 6*d. boards. (Published Quarterly.) Edinburgh :
Printed for Archibald Constable & Co. Edinburgh ;
and sold by Longman, Hurst, Rees & Orme, London.
The design of the Farmers Magazine is to collect and
disseminate ingenious Theories, important and well au-
thenticated Facts, and accurate Experiments, which relate
to the different branches of Rural Economy. It must be
well known to every person in the least acquainted with
the different parts of the United Kingdom, that discoveries
and improvements, particularly in Agriculture, travel very
slowly. To remedy this, the Farmers Magazine was first
projected ; and the Proprietors are happy to say, that, if
they may judge from the almost unprecedented sale of
more than 4000 copies of each Number, the object of this
publication is in a great degree answered. The work, in
its plan and arrangement, is vyell calculated for the end
the Proprietors had in view; it consists of — 1. Miscella-
neous Communications, chiefly of the most important prac-
tical nature — 2. The Review of Agricultural Publications.
3. Agricultural Intelligence from almost every district
in Scotland, and from several in England. The utility
and importance of this branch must be evident to every
practical Farmer, who, at the moderate price of Two Shil-
lings a quarter, may learn the state of the crops, and the
price of grain, cattle, &c. in the different parts of the
kingdom, besides being enabled to compare his own prac-
tice with that in other districts, and thus to correct what is
improper or deficient.
