Just before the Legislature of the State of New York broke up in the late abnormal manner, the bill for the Agricultural College was, at its third reading, quietly laid on the table - chiefly at the motion of Messrs. Varnum and Pardee, two gentlemen who we believe wish more time to consider whether it is worth while to give a farmer's son any education!

This bill, or any other for the same object, will never pass, and should never be expected to pass, till the leading farmers of the state bestir themselves a little more energetically to procure its passage. They greatly desire its passage, to be sure; they even send a petition to that effect from various parts of the state, now and then, and for the rest, they quietly pass their winter days in foddering the cows, and their evenings in reading the agricultural papers by the fireside. Meanwhile, when any other interest in the state wishes legislative aid, it makes its importance felt at Albany by the presence of constituent representatives who give no peace to law-makers till they decidedly assent or deny. Pressed by such unceasing demands by some of their constituents, and allowed almost to forget the real wants of others, it is not remarkable that the railroad bills pass, while farm-school bills are laid upon the table.

The new session of the legislature is, we understand, to be called in June. Let every agricultural society in the state but send one delegate to Albany, armed to the teeth with sharp and earnest words about farmer's rights, and the wise men at the capitol will deny them nothing. But if the farmers expect to get laws enacted for their benefit, and the good thereby of the whole country, by merely sitting still at home, and hoping, when all the rest of the world is as busy asserting its rights, as mid-summer bees in making honey, they are in a fog of delusion as impenetrable as Egyptian darkness.

New-Jersey is, we see, faring no better than New-York. Massachusetts has the matter of a State Agricultural School still under consideration, and judging from the signs upon the surface, there is every reason to believe that she ted for this special purpose all the leading farm schools in Europe last year, has made a very valuable report to the legislature, embracing all the needful statistics of these schools. Hon. M. P. "Wilder, chairman of the Agricultural Committee, a host in himself, is laboring un-weariedly to bring the matter to a decided action, and public meetings have been held at the state house, to develop and bring to a focus public opinion on this subject. Thus, Massachusetts, with one-fourth of the farming interest at stake, compared with New-York, will doubtless get a school to teach farming first, because her farmers are more active in asserting their rights. _
