A BACHELOR'S SIGHo.
A life misspent, anincompleted mission,
A house all void cf merry laugh,
Pertain unto that fractional condition
Of man without a better half.
No one to cheer him in this world's un
And sootho adebt-bemuddled brain ;
No ono with fertile fancy to suggest
Someway to "raise the wind" again.
No ono to laugh with him when all is
Nor weep when joys seem ever gene
Alas ! no flngors, deft and white,
To sew a missing button on.
No pure-white brow, no love-lit eye of
No tresses moved by summer breeze ;
Ah mel no dewy Ups of rosy hue,
No ling*ring, soft, white hand to squeeze
No sympathetic hope of mom of life,
Nor memory when he is old
So sad the thought, no meek aud gontle
To sneer nt when the coffee's cold.
And duties over, when the long day dies,
No need of gentle, wifely tones,
Noone to ask with glad, expecting eyes,
"DeAr, did you get the best of Jones?"
Of earthly joys and pleasures he is bare?
He bas no hope of heaven withal ;
No school for christian resignation where
Ho never hears a baby squall.

MESSES. EDITOES: We have read
with much interest, and approbation
as a legal argument, an article on the
Stock fence law, published in the
North Carolina Neivs <? Observer, and
copied by the Southern Cultivator,
published at Athens, Ga. We think
the argument conclusive on all pointa
of law involved in the enactment ol
the law requiring stock to be fenced.
The author and article being from a
neighboring State, -we hops will be
read, pondered, and adopted, by our
We have read many able and con
vincing articles from local citizens
this will give the views and opinions
of our neighbors; and we ask its pub
lication in your valuable paper. We
cannot understand why our Repre
sentatives hesitate to act upon a mat
ter of such vital importance to the
pecuniary interests of the people. It
is an immense tax, a great labor, to
build and repair fences to keep out
of the cultivated fields the few hogs
and cattle turned upon th? old fields
-to subsist. It ^osts more annually
than the taxes we pay the State and
County; this has been demonstrated
often to our people by our ablest wri
The enactment of the Stock fence
law for Edgefield County is a neces
si ty. TLe present Repr?sentatives
should pass the law to take effect '
April 1st, A. D. 1SS2. This would
,give*amp!e time to sell surplus stock
and build pasture fences. We are
sausnea ft would advance the inter
est of our entire population-the rich
and the poor of both races. We ex
amined the Books of the Auditor of
Edgefield County and find the num
ber of acres of land in cultivation to
be 108,830; the number of acres in
woodland, 217,223; the number of
acres in old fields, 311,456; which
embraces the County as assessed by
thatofficer. The largest body of land,
311.454 acres, is old field. If the
Stock fence law was the law of the
laud, this large area of old field, now
valueless to the owner, (only benefi
cial for State and County tares) would
be added to the tillable land. This
would greatly reduce rents and in
crease the val ue of labor ; wages would
advance, because of the enlarged area
for cultivation, which would increase
the demand. The stock being fenced
and no danger existing as to the de
struction of the grain crops, the land
would be largely sowed down in oats
and wheat; because the farmer could
not procure labor to cultivate the soi!
in corn and cotton. The grain crop
would mak? us independent of the
West for bread and meat, and we
would soon become an independent
people. Labor would be in greater
demand, the laborer would get higher
wages, the renter would rent land
cheaper, and have les3 work to do.
The land owner would be benefitted
by the increase of the grain crop, and
the reduction of expense in feeding
stock. If the honorable Repreeenta
tives have any. doubt cf the legal
righ- to pass the law, let each of them
read the article for himself. We think
they should pass the Stock fence law,

The Fence Laws.
lt matters not to us to-day what
tie relations were thal existed a hali
century ago, the duties and rightsand
obligations that demand our immedi
ate attention are those that relate to
tu now, and to posterity. Our rights
ara equal liberties under tho same
circumstances with our fellow-man :
oar obligations are to deal fairly and
justly witn all citizens, asking noth
inz at their hands that we would not
willingly extend to them. In kar
in my with these outlines wo propose
to examine the present law in rela
tion to fences, aa it stands in our stat
It is cleariy settled as a legal prin
ciple that no man has aright, without
cmaideration, to the property of an
other. This ia founded upon correct
moral principle?, laid down in the
first legal work ever given to man,
the code, by that great law giver,
Moaes. lb is clearly but equity that
all laws for the benefit of the citizens
of the State should affect all citi
equally, and not impose burdens
one class, liberating others from s
lar burdens, when their proper^
equally benefitted and protected,
you have cleared land, and are w
ing it, you are compelled to fenc
and lenee it high. You cannot :
with a fence tbat would keep well
cattle in, but you must fence 1
starved cattle out.
Suppose the land you till skouh
lie in squares, so as to take the li
possible amouni of fencing,_and
fence in a te*n acre lot; this requ
one half mile of fencing; if it J
forty acre lot it will require one i
of fencing; if one hundred and si
acres, two miles; if six hundred
forty, four miles. The cost of sj
ting rails here is about forty cents
hundred, and this will make y
fence cast you forty dollars per rr
not counting your timber as wc
anything; then to haul and erect
same will cost from twenty to fe
dollars per mile (ia addition to
splitting of the rails), owing to
distance the rails have to be hau!
Placing the estimate at the lov
rate, we have sixty dollars per m
or thirty dollars for eachJLen--i?i
;fe3K*?: that Ti 'to say, three doll
per acre. Each year the fence m
be repaired. I now refer to a 1?
fence. In building fences five 1
high, thej .are more easily pushed
blown over. This is a constant ii
of expense. Your neighbor, wh
lands are assessed lower, but who a
just as much per acre for his land
you do, is not compelled to jfence
untilled land at all.
A renter on the lands of Mr.
farms ten acres with a steer.-^ Ile v
keep two or three head of cattle, n
not leas than six or eight hogs,
pastures out. His half-starved ste
break in on you all vhe year, but p
ticularly after his " crop" is laid I
his stock begins in earnest to lay yoi
by. If your fence at any point.arou
your enclosure (perhaps a fen?e th;
or four miles long, often ten):is lou
to be less than sixty inches high, y
have not a lawful fence, and if ye
crop is desfroyed you cannot reco\
one cent in damage? ; if his half-stai
ed stock gorge themselves and d
he can recover damages from you..
If A-. buys land, pays for it, pa
his taxes on it, all are agreed that
?3 his. The State says by' legal e
actments, post your land, Mr.
Trespass ?3 a wrong. The State dc
not pretend to make it a wrong I
cause of its enr>ctments,.bnt we ene
for your protection laws', so that wh
the wrong is done the offender c
be punished, and we limit the arnon
of fine or punishment. No man,
yon object, has even the right to wa
over your :ands, but you must fen
against his stock full five feet. I
man can fence against ''slip-gap:
and it's hard to lenee against t
"vest-pocket" series of V?ps that, j
have here. The State~]further pi
vides that if a man enter? upon yo
lands and cuts down any free growi
thereon, it is a trespass, a misdemea
or; if he remove the timber so ct
he is guilty of larceny. The two ac
just referred to show that the Sta
concedes that the land of each inc
vidual owner must be protected, ni
yet the present fence law leads not
protection, but to ravages. If it
illegal for me to enter upon yci
premises and cut growing timber,
it nut equally illegal for me t? c
and remove grasses found growir
thereon? Will not the constant pi
fering of the forage t%at rightful!
belongs to you impoverish your land
making you poorer? It so, is it righ
morally or legally? Can a law I
just or constitutional that impbs<
burdens on one citizen and relieve
another? Doe3 a legal efiactmer
that gives you the legal right undi
that law the privilege to destroy m
lands by running a horde of stocko
them year after year, make it righ
or just, or is it honorable for you t
do so? If you have no right to tres
pass on my land?, how is it yourstefci
has? If yon have no right to cut am
appropriate my timber, how i? it yoi
have the right to appropriate my pas
tures? If it be a trespass, a misde
meanor, or larceny in one case, hov
is it that it is not iu the other?
No man has fie right tc ?eepj o.
make a nuisance. No-one. h.;:; th
right to keep stock that are a mri
sance to his ? neighbor. No man ha;
the light lo keep stock that he doe
not provide for. ' No man has- au;
right lo expect his neighbor "to fur

eat law be swept from our statutes

Convention of the Georgia Stete Ag
ricultural Society, which met at the
beautiful little city of Thomasville,
we had (Tie pleasure of inspecting the
orchards and nurseries- of Mr. L. L,
Vernadce and Messrs. Blackshear and
Sanford. We had seen iaolaTed Le
Conte pear trees, but had never be
fore had .tho pleasure: of seeing an
orchard of this remarkable fruit. The
oldest treea were only twelve years
from the; cutting, and were larger
than thirty year old trees of any otb
er variety. Their bent limbs ?hcw
how heavily they have been laden
with fruit. The growth of the young
trees is truly wonderful. We saw
several thousand trees of one year's
growth from toe cutting/which were
from eight to ten feet high. tMr. Var
nadoe sold, last year, the young stock
grown fi om cuttings on'one-fourth of
an acre, for $2,500. He started in
December, 1 SCO, with three "cuttings
brought from'Liberty county. From
this beginning he has realized since
LSC9, $9,000 from the sale of cuttings,
rooted.plants and fruit. ?He sold the
fruit in Boston, Mass*,-last -Bummer
at five dollars per bushel.
The trees commence bearing young
er than standards of other varieties?
and continue , to bear annual croj s?
which increase in quantity with the
rapid growth of the trees until the
yield becomes enormous. \ '
The LeConie has never been known
to blight when grown on its own roots.
There is-no otherj;variety which pro
duces roots of sufficient vigor to sup
ply the demands of . this astonishing
grower, and, indeed, there is no ne
cessity for grafting cn "other stockp,
since the LeConte itself is so success
fully propagated from cuttings. Mr.
Varnadoe is experimenting with the
Bartlett grafted upon LeConte stocks
in the hope of supplying through the
vigorous roots of these stocks the de
mands of the rampant growth of the
Bartlett, and thus, exempt this prince
of pear3 from blight. We look with
