AGRICULTURAL SOCIETIES IN MASSACHUSETTS. J. G. Palfrey: Esq., Secretary of State, has prepared during the past year, agreeably to directions of the Legislature, an " Abstract of the Reports of Agricultural Societies in Massachusetts," with a copy of which we have been favored. From it we learn that there are in the state ten such societies, viz., the Massachusetts Society-Middlesex-Berkshire-- Hampshire, Franklin and Hampden-Worcester-Essex-Plymouth County-Bristol County-Hampden County, and Barnstable County, and from the years 1817 to 1845, the sum of about $116,000 was granted the several societies by the legislature. The Massachusetts Society was founded and incorporated 1792. It took measures for the institution of County Societies, and for the exhibition of domestic and other manufactures, and contributed to establishing a Professorship of Natural History, and the Botanical Garden, connected with the University at Cambridge. In 1818 were begun a series of public addresses by J. Lowell, J. Quincy, R. Sullivan, H. Colman, T. Pickering, J. C. Gray, E. Everett, and others. Addresses from such sources, attracted favor and attention to the noble objects of the institution.
