Mr. J. Harris, iu the American
Agriculturist, thus speaks of laud
lost by fences: "How much land
i does au old-fashioned fence occupy?
I have always thought it took up a
great deal of land, but never had tho
curiosity to measure. But this sum?
mer we have been building a stono
wall along the whole West sido of
the farm, aud after it was comploted,
and the old fence removed, I was
surprised at the quantity of laud wo
had gained. Tho ground, of course,
might have been ploughed closer to
the fenoe, but taking the case as it
ncbually was, the old rail fence, with
stones, weeds, rubbish, Sec., ocoupied
a strip of land one rod wide. Afield,
thirty-one rods long and thirty-ono
rods wide, contains about six acres.
A farm of 160 acres so fenced would
have twenty acres of land taken up
in this worse than useless manner.
Not only is the uso of the land lost,
but it is in the majority of cases a
nursery of weeds, and, in ploughing,
much time is lost in turning, and the
head-laud corners areseldom properly

Great Ocean Race.
The marine circles of .New York,
Liverpool and London are ut present
alike deeply excited regarding the
termination of a great ocean steam?
ship race, which had its inception,
preparation and commencement at
this port, yosterday. Since it has
been announced, at first very cau?
tiously, that a race across the Atlan?
tic from New York to Queenstown,
had been agreed upon by the agents
of the Liverpool, New York and
Philadelphia Steamship Company,
(Inman line,) and the British North
American Boyal Mail Steamship
Company, (Cunard - line,) the excite?
ment has day by day increased, until
it assumed a pbaso that one almost
unconsciously recalled the great in?
terest manifested iu the memorable
ocean yacht race. This interest be?
came more intense when it was di?
vulged that the steamships selected
to decido which of these companies
should, by a well matured contest of
this character, bo proclaimed the
champion line, wero, for the Inman
line, the magnificent City of Paris,
and for tho Cunard line the equally
haudsome Cuba. Speculation imme?
diately followed, and thoso at first
only curiously inclined, became quite
enthusiastic respecting tho perform?
ances of tho vessels, while a legion of
critical remarks wero inevitably in?
terpolated as to tho abilities of their
commanding officers. Of course sug?
gestions of tho br^cr nature, what?
ever the character of tho praise they
meted out, could throw but little
light on the result of tho contest, yet
it nerved them to strengthen their
position of surmise by offors to bet,
*aud hotting became quite the rulo
among tho merchants of our city,
greatly increasing as tho hour of de?
parture arrived. The cable flashed
tho news to Liverpool and London,
and there, equal in extent to that in?
dulged in here, have tho merchants
been speculating and betting upon
the result. There tho Cuba is tho
favorite, but iu this city the City of
Paris is thought to staud tho better
chance of victory.
Tho mutually agreed conditions of
the great contest wero that tho ves?
sels should be upon their berths ns
usual, receive passengers and cargo
as before, but to sail at 2 o'clock p.
m., Saturday, April 18, 1808. The
grand stako for which tho vessels,
besides tho honorable titlo of cham?
pion, are contending must be enor?
mous, but the amount has not been
made public, perhaps never may be
known; yet whatever it is, it will be
uuu <* mi ivj pox uauuigo oi me, money
staked upon tho result, it being said
that one wealthy and enthusiastic in?
dividual of this oity is interested to
tho extent of $5,000.

The Southern Election?.
The South Carolina elections;' in?
volving the vtktificaion of the radi?
cally reconstructed State Constitu?

members to the lover House of Con?
gress, appear to have gone pretty
thoroughly ' radical. The results
could hardly be otherwise, under uni
veio i negro suffrage in a State which
numbers 400,000 blacks against 300,
In Louisiana, from some splits
and dissensions among the Republi?
cans, the results of the elections in
progress are doubtful, although it is
probable the Constitution will be
ratified, from the general turn-out
and fusion of the Republicans, blacks
and whites, radicals and conserva?
tives on that question, against the
In Georgia, where the registered
voters oh the two sides are nearly
equal in numbers, and where the
elements in opposition to the radi?
cals are prepared for a vigorous fight,
there is a fair prospect for a general
radical defeat. Tho elections come
off this week and are to continue for
five days, beginning to-morrow.
In North Carolina, the elections,
beginning on Tuesday of this week,
will last three days, oa ratification of
new Constitution, choice of Go?
vernor, Legislature, &c. As the Re?
publicans have two tickets in the field,
radical and independent radiaal, and
as the registered white voters in this
State are in a heavy majority, the
presumption is that for the offices
involved, the conservatives will carry
The Florida election is also close at

of the registered blacks, the resnlt

The Virginia and Mississippi Con?
ventions are just closing up their
arduous labors; Arkansas is on the
way to Washington for admission
into Congress, while Texas is only
about to begin the work of framing a
radical Constitution, according to
the pattern prescribed by Congress.
What has become of Alabama we
hardly know, though we suppose
she is held back, to be slipped in
' quietly under President Wade that
is to be. There are, however, so
many hitches and difficulties and
troubles to the radicals in all these
Southern elections, that we fear the
task of setting the States concerned
right side up, will be more than a
match even for "Old Ben."
