[The following article, on the same subject as the leader in our March number. - was written before our correspondent had seen that number - though it is an excellent continuation of the same idea. We are glad to have our notions of the advantages of introducing domestic animals into the ornamental park scenery of our country places, fortified by one of the most noted stock-breeders in the country, whose broad meadows on the Niagara river, give example for his and our precepts. Ed.]

Beak Sir - It is passing strange that a people so intelligent in most things appertaining to their own enjoyment, and so ambitious in the fitting up and arrangement of their country places, as the Americans, have thus far shown so little taste in collecting fine domestic animals about them, not only as creatures of convenience and economy in living, but as adding a beauty and effect to their summer homes, far more expressive than anything else which can be obtained, even at a much greater expense. In every populous part of the United States, and more particularly in the neighborhood of our large cities and towns, scattered far and wide, are seen imposing and costly houses, seated in large lawns and parks, planted out with noble trees, embellished with beautiful gardens, and expensive grounds, to say nothing of the various minor decorations, both of nature and of art, set up or planted at much cost, and cared for at a heavy annual charge upon the proprietor, merely as objects to gratify the taste, or to arrest the attention of the passer-by, to gaze at and admire.

These, so far as they go, are all very well; but, contrary to what is usually supposed, they fall far short of completing a country establishment as it should be; a pantomime in the landscape; not speaking to the heart like the living action and the moving beauty of animal life, which would otherwise give effect and fulness to so much ruaal beauty and ornate embellishment, and make it just what it should be, the perfection of rural objects inartrficialry brought together, and filling Up a complete picture.

In taking a summer drive through a neighborhood of the fine Brimmer establishments purpose, and that the presence of an animal to run at large in the enclosures, was a contamination of vulgarity not for a moment to be tolerated. All this, to one who appreciates the country in its true spirit, is false and artificial. An open common, with a humble cot or two upon its margin; the huge Oak or Elm along its border, the grazing cow, the scattering sheep; or

"The noisy geese that gabble o'er the pool," are more interesting objects in quickening the enjoyment of one who truly contemplates them, than a paradise full of such dull, unspeaking beauty.

Nor docs this inattention to animate objects in most cases arise from a grudging of the expense of obtaining and keeping them, but from the want of a knowledge in what to get, and how to manage the creatures which are required for the purpose. A resident of the city, getting up a country place, where himself and family are to spend their summers, knows that he wants his horses. For them his stables are built and furnished, to all required extent and convenience. He knows, also, that he must have a cow or two to furnish the daily mik for the house; possibly a pig to put in the "pen," and eat the offals of the kitchen; and perhaps, a dozen hens to furnish the new laid eggs, so dear to all good housekeepers; with any quantity of dogs to guard the premises; and, though he does not think of it, to become an intolerable nuisance by their depredations among his neighbors. His horses - for he is, perhaps, a man of taste in that line - are good, and such as he takes pleasure in driving or riding after; and he likes, besides, to see his wife and children, and guests, well set up in their driving equipage; but for all the rest he knows or cares nothing.

His cow, which he knows simply as a thing that gives milk, and lives on grass, is probably driven in and sold to him by a cattle-jobber of the neighborhood, and more likely than not of the commonest description of brutes, and disgraceful to any piece of ground but the worst and most obscure lot on the farm. She is, therefore, driven out and kept in obscurity, and shows herself only to the stable-boy, who drives her up, milks, and kicks her out of sight again, as soon and as carelessly as possible. The pig and chickens are got to match, while the dogs, of "mongrel, puppy, whelp, and hound degree," run wild on the place, the only real "lords of misrule" on the domain.

Thus he has no domestic thing around him beyond his horses, or dogs, in the brute creation, which interests him. His meadows yield him only a scanty crop of hay for his horses, and his pastures run waste for want of creatures to crop them, or are gnawed to the ground by his neighbors' breachy cattle. He is, consequently, without anything to arrest his attention in the fields or grounds, and the overgrown grass in his lawn or park - for what is a country house without one or both? - must be weekly cut to keep it in good trim, and he becomes annoyed at the continual expense of keeping a hand or two to clip and rake a scanty coat of shrivelled herbage, or otherwise see it grow up rank and seedy on his ill kept grounds. And, what is the poor man to do? Why, as sensible men do, who have some natural fancy that way, and taste, and economy, and liberality enough to get something worth keeping, and ornament his grounds with beautiful, well-bred cattle or sheep. Deer, as in England, he cannot keep; and if he could, they are a creature of no profit. Neither will our American fences hold them, and they are destructive to every young thing of vegetable growth within reach.* But choice cattle and sheep he can get, which may be kept without trouble, and be a source of profit and pleasure.

And premising that our friend, who is disposed to take some sensible advice, wishes to make a few inquiries as to what description of stock he wants, a hint or two will be given for his benefit.
