Really bad interpreter

Can some one explain this to me?????

"The American farmer, (says this gentleman) has more simplicity and honesty-we more art and chicanery; they have more of nature, and we more of the world. Nature, indeed, formed our features and intellects very much alike; but while we have metamorphosed the one, and contaminated the other, they have retained and preserved the natural symbols of both."

  1. Farmers tell it like it is! Whoever "we" may be sounds like politicians who tell what they want us to hear and not as it really is!

  4. I think it means that the american people like doing things in a very simple manner and don't like to make such a big deal over anything to avoid confusion or problems. They rather be straight forward with one another than lying and tricking people in order to get what they want or get something done. He is saying that British are more worried about their wordly possession and not focused on what they have been given and the beauty of it all.....And the last part i have no clue about that one.....was any of this right or even close????????????????
