We have examined the valuable report
for 1875 of the New York Fish Commis?
sioners, at (ho, head of whom stands the
name of Horatio Seymour, an elightened
statesman, and of great practical sagacity
in enterprises intended for the good of
society. New York, has taken up the
subject of fish culture with creditable
zeal forlast ten or a dozen years,
and her people have already'derived im*
manse benefit from the labors of the
State Commissioners, and the handsome
resultant/ &e operations of the Stats
hatehin^ouaoi, The supply of the
?est popular fishes, in the rivers has
been greatly increased, and the food
from the waters, has been multiplied in?
manner that fens cheapened the cost
greatly. The commissioners, aided by
the vettstm Sena Grc*n, Superintendent,
have a^assvmQsutsanh have the com mis?
sion era. of. any other State in stocking
the waters with fish. Seth Green is,
perhaps, the most skillful artist in the
Union in the matter of cultivating fish.
The committee. make astonishing stater
mentaAccruing the increase of fish in
the rivers?especially of shad-and lay
before the Legislature the strongest
reasons for increasing the means* of
stocking, not only the large rivers, but
the smaller" ones, and even the creeks.

The leBsdTiB coliveyed In thin report
are aa useful here and more necessary to
be acted upon than in New York. Aa in
Virginia, AT said by the pUpaieh, whose
notiae of thjj report has -brought It
freshly to ? ertr view,, OUr streams are
prct# well exhausted', and nowhere are
the processes of fish cult uro more needed.
There is a vast amount of practical
benefit to bo conferred en the people by
cultivating fish, and we believe that
amoeg the few Acte recently passed by
the Legislature of a practically beneficial
character, one was about three years ago
to protect the progress of fish up streams
by requiring an opening to be left in
weirs for this purpose. This law should
bo enforced, the hsbit of pound netting
better regulated and limited, and the
streams ataok^d elresh with deauable
kinds ef.kVb/ Ws were pleaaed to see
Borne referenoe to this important matter
in one of Governor Chamberlain's mes?
sages, and next session wo hope that a
sufficient fund will be voted to supply
the Stream* again, and thereby add
largely to the resources of the country
and to the health and comfortable sup
Iiort of the people. Under capable and
esponsible gentlemen as commissioners,
his might be done with little cost
We copy some good observations of the
Dispatch upon the introduction and pro
| tection of fish. It says:
' 'Laws for the protection of fish should
go along with measures for their cultiva?
tion. The New York commissioners are
i eloquent in their appeals to the Legisla?
ture to prohibit the barbarous and
Sreedy means of killing and capturing
sh. They mention the systems of kill?
ing with fish-berries, liming streams,
giant powder and pound nets. These
are all to bo severely reprobated, and no
Legislature . which properly considers
the. wdafaro of the people wf&fail to put
them down by the severest enactments.
The pound nets Sire especially destruct?
ive?monopolizing the fish for their
owners and destroying the means of
livelihood to numerous families, and
also the sport of the angler, by catahing
the largo schools as they enter the
mouths of the rivers from the sea, or
scaring them back, so that the dwellers
upon the rivers are out off from the run
of fish, in the equal chance to enjoy
which-iho laws should protect "them.
"Wo look upon the introduction of
fish-culture i into thia country as one of
the most'important ovents of the cen?
tury. It is one of the most dignified of
all matters of State concern. Liberal
measures should be employed by every
Stftio to encourage the cultivation and to
nrovido for the protection of fish. All
that is possible should be done for the
hatching of fish and stocking of the
rivers, providing fish-ladders for ascend?
ing the streams, and for the protection
of fish from the destructive means em?
ployed now to kill and capture them."

The entire day was occupied in tho
trial of the two former Boards of County
Commissioners, the Attorney-General as?
sisting the Solicitor in the prosecution,
and Messrs. Bachman A Yonmans repre?
senting the defendants.
In the case of tho State against J. iL
Bryant, John J. Goodwin and Uriah
Portee, County Commissioners from 1870
to 1872, the indictment charged official
misconduct in their having neglected to
make an annual publication of all claims
audited and allowed, and the amounts
claimed, together with those actually
paid. There being three defendants,
the defence wok allowed fifteen peremp?
tory challenges and the State six. Mr.
D. *B. Miller testified for the State. No
testimony was offered by the defence, tho
Court having ruled, in the cross-exami?
nation of Mr. Mill.t, that no testimony
tending to show that there was an ab?
sence of criminal intent on the part of
tho defendants was competent for the
jury; but that, in cose of conviction, and
before judgment, affidavits to that effect
would have its proper weight with the
Court in pronouncing its sentence. In
tbo course of bis argument to the jury,
Mr. Attorney-General Melton said: "AH
tho checks and balances that State-craft
can devise to hold public servants to a
strict accountability, are comparatively
worthless compared to the'modern expe?
dient of publicity." Ho thtn read to the
Court an extract from Prof. Liebor's
?'Civil Liberty and Self-Govornment,"
relative 10 the*importance of publicity to
the government of a free country. Mr.
Youmans argued the case in behalf of
the defendants. The jury retured a ver?
dict of guilty.

The Tornado of Satubdat Last.
Certain portions of our unfortunate
County were laid waste on Saturday af?
ternoon last, by a tornado almost equal
in its fury to that of six weeks back.
Like tho former one, it first worked
wide-spread and horrible destruction in
certain Counties of Georgia?Oglethorpe
and Burko principally - and thvn passed
into Edgefield. We bear of it first in the
Dark Corner and at Liberty Hill. In the
Dark Corner, Dr. Joe. Jennings seems to
havo been tho greatest sufferer. Twelve
of his outhouses wero blown down and
many of them completely destroyed.
Fences and timber in this section, as
also at Liberty Hill, wero terribly sacri?
ficed. Dr. Joe Jennings informs us that
the highroad for five or six miles below
his house is totally impassable? oom
itely blotted out* by fallen timber,
e next section seriously devastated
was Gilgal. The citizens of this neigh?
borhood have suffered terribly. Dr. John
Barker has written us a letter, tbo details
of whieh are shocking. Ho says: "The
storm has destroyed seven of my houses,
and has not left o panel of fence standing
on my plantation. My oats and wheat,
in fact my entire crop of all sorts, is to?
tally exposed. My dwelling and furni?
ture arc badly damaged. Both my
carriage and my buggy are in flinders.
My loss is beyond description or calcu?
lation. And what I say of mvsclf, may
bo said of my neighbors. They havo
been terribly broken up. I hear of num?
bers of valuable horses and mules being
killed. The cries of frightened women
and children during tho storm were
enough to make the strongest man shud?
From another sonreo we hear that the
following citizens of the Gilgal section
lost thoir gin houses, besides being oth?
erwise badly damaged: Col. Sam Strom,
Mr. Luke Cnlbreath, Mr. John Rey?
nolds, Mr. Ebb Reynolds, Mr. J. R.
and Wm. Williams, and Mr. Jabes Mar?
tin. Wo hear further that Mr. Dong.
Timnierman, Mrs. Joshua Harris,. Mr.
Abner Bnshnell, Dr. May son, and many
others, sustained very heavy losses. Six
or seven miles to the North of us, on
Turkey Creek, the storm raged furiously,
destroying timber, fences and gin house*
to a shocking extent. Mr. D. R Duri
soe's gin house, in this quarter was lev?
eled to the earth. -Enlgeficld Advertiser.
