To the merits of this work (whose circulation now far exceeds that of any other agricultural periodical), it is with pride that its publisher selects the few following testimonials from the numberless others which have been showered over it:—
"I had last year the pleasure of distributing amongst the successful candidates copies of the ' Farmers' Almanac,' which were found extremely useful. I hope that you will again procure them, as they are sold so low as a shilling. They contain a great mass of information on everything relating to the great pursuit in which we are all engaged."—Speech of Lord Charleville attheMeeting of the Tullamore Agricultural Society, Oct. 26,1842.
"I have circulated those excellent publications, the 'Fanners' Almanac,' by Johnson and Shaw, and the 'Farmers' Magazine,' and they have been extensively read. It is not possible, perhaps, for plain farmers to become experienced agricultural chemists, but they might make a beginning, and be would specially advise them to explode old Francis Moore, and read the 'Farmers' Almanack,' containing information of yesterday, and of the utmost value."—Speech of the Rev. C. Woodcock, Vicar of Chardstoch, to the Mcmbert of the East Devon and Dorset Agri. Society, Dec. 1, 1843.
'' The avocations of a farmer are of such a nature as to render a register of facta like that afforded by an almanac of no small utility. All the conveniences in regard to such topics that an almanac can supply, have been afforded by the publication of this work. It is now in its third year; and the increasing favour with which it is annullay received is the best proof of its usefulness. The Farmers' and Gardeners' Calendar is written with great care, and contains many more useful suggestions than are generally found under that head. To this are appended ' General Monthly Notices,' the object of which is to give, among other things, the chief characteristics of the different mouths in regard to temperature, hygrometry, and the general phenomena of the weather. This department is executed with discrimination; and where the intelligence is not original, it is derived from the best and most recent s.iurccs. Biographies of naturalists and eminent agriculturists are occasionally introduced, and pleasingly diversify the drier details. One of the most elaborate and useful portions of the work is a complete list of all the Fairs and Markets of Great Britain and Ireland. Excellent their Almanac is."—Quar. Journ. of Agric. and Trans, of the Highland Soc., Dec. 1,1842.

This celebrated remedy for the Hair is from the Toilet of the Spanish Ladies, who are not only remarkable for the extreme beauty of their Hair, but for preserving its pristine luxuriance and colour to the most advanced age; it stops it from falling ofT, and restores it; makes it curl; prevents its turning grey ; and when it has become so prematurely restores it to its natural colour ; subdues the fiery shade of red hair; is a most invaluable appendage to tlie nursery, as the first application eradicates dandriff, and gives to the most harsh hair that exquisite gloss which has but to be seen to be admired.—2s. Gd. and Is. 6d.
"Crime d'Espagne.—Public report recommends this article as one of the Very Best productions ever discovered for the hair."—Derby Mercury, March, 1845.
