"-Here ls a new story about Dean Rich?
mond: A modest printer's devil in Albany en?
tered the magnate's office, ftarlog that he
would be rudely rebuffed when ne made his
mission known. After a moment's hesitation
he said, falteringly: "Mr. Richmond, I be?
lieve'"' ''Yes; what do you want of me?" "I
should like, slr, td get a pass from Albany to
Buffalo." "On what grounds do you ask for *
pass"' (This with a rising and very rough
voice.) "On the grounds, ?lr, that I don't want
to-pay my fare." Richmond, without another
word, wrote ont a pass and banded It to the
applicant. The boy took lt, Baying, '-Thank
you; thank you, Mr. Richmond." "You
needn't tnank me. Tn d-glad to accom?
modate you. You arc the first person I've ever
knows to ask for a pass on the right grounds."
-Atlast New York has heard "Mignon,"
one of the pieces de resistance which Max
Strakofch has been keeping back with a view
to revivify bia operatic season, If perchance it
should begin tox.3crease la popularity. It ls
needless to say that no such ??crease has been
noticed, but the insatiate public Garnered for
something new, and "Mignoa" was brought
forward as a peace offering. The story of the
opera ls founded upon an episode of Goethe's
"Wilhelm Meister," and relates to the theft of
a. child of noble birth by gypsies, and her
subsequent restoration to ter borne. The
plot supplies an abundance of romantic inci?
dent, and several complicated love affairs are
pleasingly interwoven. Although the music
la of a light character, It is by no means trivial
or superficial, and the composer, M. Thomas,
has succeeded in producing not only a profu?
sion of beautiful melodies, but also a work
abouudiog in those excellencies of Inventive?
ness and science which del grit the heart of a
musician. "Mignon" was given at the Acad?
emy on Wednesday evening before a very
large and brilliant audience. The centre of
attraction was, of course, Mlle. Nilssoo, who
by her impersonation ofthe gipsy girl delight?
ed the auditors and gave renewed evidence of
her remarkable versatility and vocal and
dramatic superiority. The other arte's also
won great applause, especially M. Capoul, wno
"made love" to the unbounded admiration of
the fair critics In the boxes and parquette.
-Louis Nathaniel Bossel, the Communist
Genera], who was shot recently, at Ver?
sailles, was born at St. Breuc. France, In
1841, and graduated in 1855 at the military
ecbool (ol La Fleche, and, in 1862, at the
Polytechnic School. He was reappointed in
1864 sub-lieutenant ol engineers and in?
structor at the artillery school, at Mentz,
sod attained the grade of lieutenant of en~
pincers In 1866, and of c?ptalo in 1870. He
was stationed at Mentz at the -break!pg out
'i- C79 bc* tfSS I
C. V SOB httf '.l '
of the Franco-Prussian var, and managed
to effect his escape on the surrender of the.]
fortress-'to .he^?Geraans. He was the?j
ordered on a military Inspection of the
.available forces In tbe.vnorth of France, and
''on his return was reappointed auxiliary col?
onel and director of engineering o? the camp
at Never?. While holding this position the
-Communist revoir broke out,"?nd~RoBsel,
abandoning his command, repaired to Paris,
\ where he-was plaeed-at the head ai* the Le-1
I glon of the Eighteenth Arrondissement. He
next became chief ol staff to General Cluseret,
the Communist minister of war, and was pres?
ident of the court-martial for th? summary
i trial of citizens who refused to Join the insur?
gents. On the deposition of Cluseret he be?
came minister of war and commander-in-chief,
and held this office for ten days, when he was
arrested by the chiefs of the Commune. Bos?
sel, however, managed to escape, and con?
cealed himself until, after the fall of Paris,
when he was captured while endeavoring to
fly from France ia the disguise of a raliway
employee. He was then brought before a
court-martial, and, after a protracted trial,
was convicted and sentenced to death. Great
exertions were made to secure a commutation
of sentence, but Bossel's offence In deserting
his military command and violating his oath
was too grave to be pardoned._
An Excellent Idea.
We understand that an invitation has been
extended to the Eiecutive Committee of the
Taxpayers' Convention, which committee is
now in session in Columbia, to hold an ad?
journed meeting in this city, where the Tax?
payers' Convention originated, and where
the Executive Committee would have a full
opportunity of consulting with leading
merchants and lawyers who cannot, at thia
season, visit the capital. The use of the
rooms of the Chamber ot Commerce has, we
believe, been offered, witb. characteristic
courtesy, to the members of the committee,
and we can assure them, ia advance, of a
hear* v welcome, and the earnest co-operation
of c ic people in any practicable plan of
campaign against the public .enemy. Judge
Aldrich, of Barnwell, one of the members of
the committee, has been requested to deliver
an address, before the Chamber of Com?
merce, upon tbe engrossing question of the
day, and we hope that Charleston will have
the benefit of hearing, from his own lipa,
bis sagacious and patriotic counsel. Than
Judge Aldrich no man has given more
thought and care to the finding of a remedy
for the pressing evils of debt and taxation,
and we are satisfied that bis presence would
tend to consolidate public sentiment, and
give us what we most need-Unity ol Pur?
pose and Concert of Action.
Ta* Metropolitan Police BUI.
Au attempt will be made, next week, to
pass a bill establishing a Metropolitan po?
lice in the City of Charleston. Following
in the footsteps of the New York Radicals, a
knot of malignant office-seekers are engaged
in the endeavor to extort from the Legisla?
ture a measure which cannot be justified by
even the plea of "party necessity." They
care little Xor the cost of a Metropolitan
police, or for the uneasiness and alarm
which it would create. Their only object is
a fat job with plenty of pickings.,,
The present city government is eminently
non-partisan io character. Since the elec?
tion ol Mayor Wagener, not one colored
man has been removed io make way for a
white man, nor has. any man been removed
from office, on account of his political sym?
pathies. There were three commissioned
officers of police under the Pillsbury Radical
administration, and, of tbe three, only one
Hendricks-was dropped, by the new Coun?
cil. No sweeping changes bave been made.
The conduct of tbe new Mayor and Council
proves teat they know, and make, no dis?
tinction on account- of politics or color.
Th ey ita ve even elected a colored man to tbe
responsible position of lieutenant of police,
which is more than the Radicals ever did.
In a word, they judgj holders of office, and
applicants for office, by their merits and
fitness. They have no other standard.
And yet it is proposed, in tbe interest of j
Hendricks, Hernandez, and their like, to
take tbe control, of tbe police out of the
bands of the City Government, and place it
in charge of Messrs. Willoughby, Pillsbury
and Hendricks. We know What to expect
from the ex-Mayor and tbe ex-Chief of
Police. They would maintain their police
force at a ruinous expense to tbe city, and
would, in a very few months, undo all the
good,?hieb tbe past few weeks have done.
There .is* not a single sound or reasonable
argument which can be advanced in favor of
their a?heme, and we bope that the Legisla?
ture will be wise enough, and just enough,
to pat the bill oat of its misery as soon as it
comes before them,
The Feme Liui-An Important Q,u<y<
Messrs. E. S. Hammond, W. Pinkney
Starke and Tboe. H. Whatley, three of tbe
most intelligent farmers in . South Carolina,
have Investigated the subject of fence laws,
and present their conclusions in a report
submitted to the Beech Island Farmers'
Club. They show that tbe principle upon
which fence laws are based is adverse to jus?
tice and (he rights of property. Upon the
owner of landed property is thrown the re?
sponsibility of protecting it from aggression.
In cases of trespass, the sufferer must prove
that his fences were strong, sound and of
legal height throughout, and if his claim for
damages is sustaiued-a thing next to an
impossibility under the rigid requirements of
the law-a trifling fine may be collected.
While the farmer "can forbid any person
"from ranging or passing over his land un
"der heavy penalties, and may send the tres?
passer to jail if be persists, he cannot pro?
hibit his stock, bot at bis own peril, except
"by a lawful fence." Fence laws, moreover,
tend to annihilate tiie valuable class of small
fanners by increasing the proportionate ex?
pense of small enclosures. These laws
"amalgamate the small freeholds, and bring
"them under one fence and one master."
This is a consideration which should have
great weight with the Legislature and with
all advocates of small holdings. Ten square
farms of ten acres each, not adjoining, re?
quire os much fencing as one square farm of
one thousand acres. The committee say:
"If left to his choice, would not every far?
mer prefer to avoid ihe expense of fencing
his crops, and get full restitution of damages
if tala neighbors stock injure or destroy them?
Can any farmer choose voluntarily to be com?
pelled to fence out his neighbor's ptock ? A
large proportion of farmers keep only work
animals, milch cows for family use, and a few
hogs or sheep, if any. Many enclose them all
the time for security, convenience, as advan
tageous to the s?bk, and to save t

It is difficult to estimate the total invest?
ment in the State, in outside fences. A
careful calculation, based upon the census
of 1850, gives the following result : 4,000,
000 acres of improved lands, worth, at this
time $20,000,000, enclosed by 100,000 miles
of outside fencing, the fencing costing for
its original construction, $16,000,000, be?
sides encumbering, and rendering valueless
100,000 acres of land, worth $500,000. The
duration of such fences varies from four to
fifteen years, accordlhg to timber and other
circumstances, apart from casualties of
floods and fires; but the annual cost of re?
pairs cannot be less than 10 per cent., or
$1,600,000, equivalent to a tax of 40 cents
an acre on all improved lands in the State,
or 8 per cent, of its value, being just eight
times the rated tax, State and county, we
shall have to pay on the same property next
year. To this should be added at least 7
per cent interest on the original cost, mak?
ing the tax 15 per cent, or 75 cents per
These statements may appear to be ex?
travagant, but they are fully borne out by
the experience of the whale country. Some
years ago the cost- of the fences of the
United States-"those unproductive monn
"ments ol art"-were estimated by-Barknap
at more than twenty times the amount of
specie in the country. More recently their
total first cost is placed at near $1,300,000,
000, and the roadside and boundary fences
as exacting aa annual tax averaging $1 50
on every acre of Improved land in the coun?
try. Nearly a generation ago, Mr. Biddle
estimated the cost of the fences ot Pennsyl?
vania at $100,000,000-, and the annual re?
pairs at $10,000,000. Yet Pennsylvania bad
then but about double the amount of im?
proved land of Sooth Carolina. General
Worthington estimates their cost in Ohio at
$115,000,000. Ohio had abont two-and-a
thlrd times the improved land of Sooth Car?
olina. With about three times the improved
land in New York, its fences cost according
to Robinson, $144,000,000. Mr. Prince esti?
mates the cost of annual repairs on the two
thirds of the fences of Maine that are made
of wood, on farms of over twenty acres ex?
tent, at near $2,000,000.. The total Im?
proved land of Maine Ia abont one-half that
of Sooth Carolina. Illinois is said to have
ten times the fencing of Germany, and
Duchess County, New York, more than all
France. And in 1864 the question was
summed ap In the Llinois Agricultural Re?
port as follows: "The fences of the United
"States have cost more than the houses,
"cities included ; more than the ships, boats
"and vessels of every description, which sail
"the ocean, lakes and rivers; more than onr
"manufactures of all kinds, wilh their ma
"chinery; more than any one class of prop?
erty, aside from real estate, except it may
"be the railroads of our conntry."
We sincerely hope that the Interior preBS
will again take up this important subject
Virginia has a State fence law, which may
be adopted or rejected by a majority of the
citizens of each county and is of force only
in the counties which adopt it We believe
that Alabama hos a similar law, and Geor?
gia is moving in the same direction. A
member of the South Carolina Legisla?
ture has already given notice of a bill rela?
ting to .fences, and we think that, with a
little explanation and persuasion, we may
obtain this session the passage of a new
ience law which, without injuring the large
landholders, will be a substantial benefit to
every man who holds a small farm, or who
bopes, one of these days, to have a home?
stead of his own.
