FENCE OR NO FENCE. .
Whether we should enclose our
crops ar.d "turn out" the remainder
of our farms, or fence up the pas
ture and leave the .cultivated por
tions unprotected by any kind of
fence save the law of the land, are
questions that have now and then
agitated the minds of the people
of every one of the States of this
Union. Firm adherents can be
found to both sides of the question.
We confess to having never become
clearly settled in our opinion upon
When we see our noble forests
felled annually by the thousands of
acres to procure fresh land to cul
tivate; after we have, by a most
slovenly system, galled and im
poverished as many more fertile
acres ; when we know that far
more economy could be practiced
upon the farm by avoiding the ne
cessity of having so many thous
ands of rails mauled every winter;
when we know that almost every
farmhouse burns as much wood in
each fire-place as ought to supply
dwelling, and kitchen, and wash
house, during the cold season;
when we know that a strip of land
ten feet wide running aroun devery
side of the field, and this frequently
the best land in the field, is lost to
cultivation because of the fence;
when we show that every negro
in the South will have a cow, and
-never thinks he is a freeman until
he can tie his own cow's horns to
her fore foot to keip her from
jumping the fence that he won't
fix up ; when we think of the
thousands of dollars that are lost
to the intrinsic wealth of the coun
try by the mauling and hauling and
building and repairing that is ne
cessary to keep up the fences
around our farms ; when we think
of the provocation to say hard words
when fox hunters, tramps, jumping
cattle or other nuisances make gaps
in our fences, and cannot be pun
ished for it; when we think how
easy it would be to make a fat cow
out of a poor one, a profitable cow
out of an expensive one, if the
owner was simply compelled to
keep it up, take care of it, feed it,
treat it as the returns would prove
it should be treated ; when we
think it is the crop that brings in
the money and enriches thse coan
try, and not the forests or.pasture 1
lands, and are therefore the more :
worthy of lawful protection on that:
account; when we think how much
better one good cow is than a herd1
of poor ones ; when we think how
easy it is to herd cattle and sheep
and even hogs together, so that
they will need but tile care of a
single person a few hours each day
to prevent their strolling out cf
sight; when we think what a pleas-1
nre it is,what a real luxury to sit and
watch iQnproved herds pasturing and
grazing over lururiant meadows
and fields; we say, when we think of
all these things, we can but wonder
legislation has not long since re
quired our farmers to set about imn
proving their stock by abolishing
the existing fence law and allowing
our broad acres to be cultivated
without the miles and miles of,
hideous worm fences everywhere
But then, when we have lookedJ
at the other side of this question,
and thought how ignorant most of<
our people are, even of the old
established law upon this subject,
and how sparsely settled our coun- J
try is, and how much easier it is to
enclose a cultivated field than it
would be to enclose all the remain
der of the majority of Southern
farms, and how every farmer would
every one that can owns a cow,)
and that class are opposed to a
stock law, because they think that I
all the unenclosed pasture lands
are, by a natural right, as free to q
their cows as to the owner of the a
pasture, and of what minor im
portance to our farmers the care
of stock is when compared to the
infatuation that they have for the
"cotton patch," and what wonder
ful social and industrial revolution
it would make to establish a stock
law and abolish our fences, we
have halted between two opinions.
Much can be said on both sides of'
this question, and more on the
Dther, look at it as you will.
Absence of fences is an evidence
of progressive farming. When we
go into a city, a town or village,
(and there are some of these last
in the United States) where the
roses grow, as it were, "out
doors," and the vegetable gardens
are not enclosed, we-at once know
there is an ordinance there pre
venting stock going at large, ad
with this idea is also immediately 2
coupled the thought that the cows z
there are carefully housed and well s
ed, and, in consequence, the peo- z
ple have plenty of milk.
But if we see a village with its a
streets and pavements filthy, and
the lots all enclosed, or even a 1
arm with high "stalked and rider- T
3d" fences, we are not long in com- T
,ng to the conclusion that idlers T
.nd depredators, four-footed and
horned, are round about.
We once heard a man say a
traveler could go alone from'north
Arn Missouri into Iowa and tell, f
without being informed, when he i
ntered the latter State, because t
ill the farming evidences were so
much more progressive and thrifty; i
nd he attributed it all to the fact e
fhat the stock were inclosed in
[owa and the crops were not; o
whilst in Missouri the reverse was E
tbe case. We have been told, too, 2
bat in North Carolina, where the S
>ption was given to counties to
ote "fence or no fence," where
ver "no fence"~ prevailed the peo- n
pe have become reconciled to it,
arms have been improved, cattle ~
ave increased in number and e
value, and the farmers would not,
.1 they could, return to the "old
ut." We have also heard grum-T
lers at several places where we
bave seen the no fence law in force,
but we did not regard th'eir comn
laints, because the thing seemedr
hronic, and we all know there
ire some men who would suffer
orture if they had no opportunity
Fences are by no means univer
;al througliout the Union. Severalt

The Commissioner of Agricnlture, in his
eport for the year 1875, speaks as follows:
"There can be no doubt of the general
dulteition of all malt liquors. In England
*nd other countries, where heavy penalties
re imposed, and an increasing vigilance
racticed to detect and punish such frauds,
ya system of iuspection of all malt liquors
anufactured before exposed to sale, the
ractice is very common. How much more
a this country, where there are no laws on
he subject, and no officer to carefully ana
yze the products of the brewery ? Some
ears ago, Professor Mapes, of New York,
nalyzed the beer from a dozen different
rewries, and all were found adulterated
it noxious substances. It is said that the
ale of drugs to brewers is a profitable pail
f the trade. This is perfectly infamous.
~occulus indicus, (fish-berry,) nnx vomica,
dog-button, from which strychnine is ob
ained,) are some of the delectable substances
ud i beer! These are potent poisons,
nd the brewer found using them should be
roaned at once in one of his own vats.
'he British Parliament passed a law to pre.
cut this nefarious business. The following
San extract: 'No druggist, vender of or
ealer in drugs, or chemist, or any other
erson, shall sell or deliver to any licensed
rewer, dealer in or retailer of beer, knowing
bem to be such, or shall sell or deliver to
ny person on account of,or in trust for, any
uch brewer, dealer or retailer, any liquor
lled by the name of or sold for coloring,
rom whatever material the same may be
aade; or any material or preparation other
han unground brown malt, for the darken
g the color of worts beer, or any molasses,
itriol, honey, quassia, coccolus indicus,
rains of paradise, Guinea pepper, or opium,
r any extract or preparation of molasses, or
ly article or preparation to be used in worts
ser for or as a substitute for malt or hops;
nd if any druggist shall offend in any of thlese
artilars, suchl preparation, &c., shall be
rfeited, and may. be seized by any officer of
xcise, and the person so offending shall for.
eit five hundred pounds.'
"Under this law, very many druggists and
rewers were brought to grief, and yet the
ractice continues. Unless the American
'ublic are ready to admit the immaculate
urity and innocence of American brewers,
he must be content, while drinking their
er, to cherish the belief that they are at the
ame time guzzling some narcotic poison or
amaging medicine. In view of the unpre
edented growth of the barley crop; of the
rea increase of the number of mnalsters and
rewers; of the vast unknown quantities of
eer thlat arc drunk in every city and almost
very town on the continent, it is the dictate
f sould wisdom that the attention of legis
ators should be called to the subject of the
dulterationi of our malt liquors, and severe
enalties should be inflicted as a preventive. '
