A TREATISE ON MILCH COWS,

Whereby the Quality and Quantity of Milk which any Cow will give may be accurately determined, by observing Natural Marks or External Indications alone; the length of time she will continue to give Milk, &c. &c By M. Francis Guénon, of Libourne, France. Translated for The Farmers' Library by N. P. Trist, Esq. with Introductory Remarks and Observations on THE COW AND THE DAIRY, by J. S. Skinner, Editor of The Farmers Library, Illustrated with numerous Engravings.

Price for single copies, neatly done up in paper covers, 374 cents. Library edition, full bound in cloth and lettered, 62 cents. The usual discount to Booksellers, Agents, Country Merchants and Peddlers.

This extraordinary Book has excited the attention of the ablest agriculturists of the country. The Publishers have received nomerous testimonials as to the usefulness and accuracy of Guénon's Theory. The practical remarks and the useful information contained in the first part of the Book are worth more to any Farmer than the whole cost.

Since the days of Doctor Jenner's discovery of vaccination, or the Cow-pox, being an antidote to the small-pox, nothing has appeared so extraordinary in that department of Natural History as the discov ery of M. GUENON, the son of a French gardener, of a mean of ascertaining the quality of Milch Cows by external and visible signs over the milk region of the animal.

The signs have been reduced to a clear system, and by Committees of various Agricultural Societies in France pronounced "infallible," after repeated and most careful trials.

The work was translated by Mr. TRIST of the State Department, and published with numerous engravings explanatory of the system, first iu THE FARMERS' LIBRARY. But the Publishers, not wishing to withhold a discovery so important and valuable from the poo, est person owning, or wishing to own, a Cow, have published it in a separate and cheap form.

The way taken to convince myself of the truth of M. Guenon's method has been to visit the cowyards of some of our principal dairy farmers, and examine the escutcheons upon calves as early as two or three weeks old, and I see no reason why their value as future milkers may not be judged of at this age as well as as at any other age. Yours, respectfully JOHN BROOKS. To J. S. SKINNER, Esq. Ed. of The Farmers' Lib.

EAST WINDSOR HILL, Ct. Dec. 19, 1846. Dear Sir: Having had some experience in raising Cows, and having had my attention particularly called to their milking properties, 1 waa pleased to find a Treatise on the subject, by M. Guénon, of Libourne, in France-published by you a few months since, which I procured and carefully studied; and I think the book worthy of more attention than I believe it has reeeived from the public in this quarter.
