Thb fence law of Mississippi is a
'good law and ongbt to be enforced.
If it is sma.l farmers will learn to take
personal care of their stock, to value
it more highly than they do, and to
take especial pains with milch cows
and sheep. Stockmen are all in favor
of the fence law. They have nothing
to fear from it, bnt all to gain.
Tut Department of Agriculture, in
its Forestry Division, has prepared a
schedule for observations of tree-life ;
and, accompanying it, of weather con
ditions, for the jmrpoee cf aiding an

Mr Gould soys he "thinks well of the

cannot fail fioin being beneficent.

Tub sales at Belle Meade, the beau

this year was no exception to the rule.
From the report published in Wednes

better than the rule, it was an ex
ceptional success. Tho averag j prices

1881 , and that, tho Nashville Union tells
us, was caused by the fabulous priees
paid for two extra colU. The venera
ble proprietor of Belle Meade is much
to be congratulated on continaed suc
cess in a field he was tho first to culti
vate and which he has brought to
such astonishing perfection. His ex
ample is one to be followed, and that
is being followed, especially in the
region of country contributory to
Memphis. Here farmers are yearly
increasing their herds of blooded stock
and horses, and are paying closer at
tention to breeding. Common sheen,
horses, cown and hogs have had their
day. Blood will tell in the animal
kingdom especially, and tho Legisla
tures of all onr States should do what
ever in them lies by fence and other
laws to encourage the care of stock

The silly attempt yesterday of a few
Republican officials of the State of
New York to protest against the pro
ceedingB had in Montgomery, Ala.,
on Wednesday, was a complete failure,
as it deserved to be. There was noth
ing said or done by tho people of Ala-
bama to call out protest even from
so-called loyal men, nothing to re
arouse sectionalism, nor to start'e
as with fear the boml
proof warriors who are still
marching on in song. The occasion
was one in the natural order of
events, rrepared to erect a suitable,
monument ti the memory of their
heroic dead who fell during the war
between the Stales, tho people of
Alabama assembled at Montgomery
to laytlie foundation of it with becom
ing ceremouies. That city the first cap
tal of tho Confederacy, what more
natural than that they should in
vi'e ex-rresideut Davis to be
present and say something
appropriate to the occasion, an i when
he ar.ivod there what more natural
than that ho sliotr'd be received with
such manifestations of respect and
, veneration a.s we know all classes of
the peopla of tho South entertain for
him. The center of tho ride and cir
cumstance of the day, what else could
bo expected of Mr. Davis but that he
. would f online himself in the ro-
marks he made to the subject
of the hear, the civil war,
- the men who fought in tbe Con
federate araucs, and the women who
sustained those armies in the field.
He could not say less than he did and
say anything. A (lectin t sense of self
respect forbids, that any explanation
should be offered for ft duty well per
formed, but we cannot permit the
silly and s lipid attempt of these offi
cial Albanians to pass without rebue.
No man or body of men at the
Jth can teach or ... tell the
jople of the South anything -about
the Union. Kvery foot of the soil of
Alabama U consecrated by the blood
of the soldiers who fought to
win it for the Union under Jack
son, the man who, above all others of
his time, emphasised by lu's words
and deeds his love and faith in the
Union. Just such a love is treasured
for it to-day Tery where in the South,
in the confident belief that it is a
beacon to a darkened world, and
the best government ever devised
by man. Bo believing, we can
stdl turn to the graves of our dead
and honor them with monuments for
thtir devotion to a principle older
than the Declaration of Independ
encethe very kernel and heart
of Anglo-Saxon liberty and freedom.
T he time will never come when
Southerner will be ashamed of the
soldiers of Lee and Johnston, or fail
to honor the statesman whose only
sin is that he was their chosen chief
and prove 1 his titleto their confidence
by eag3r and most patriotic devotion
to his duties. ,

Mostoomiry, Ala., April 21. The
last day of the exercises attending the
reception of Mr. Davis proved to be a
perfect one. It was made ft fitting
close commemorative of the love and
esteem our people bear for him. The
laying of the corner-stone of the Con
federate monument at Capitol Hill
occurred amid unusually impressive
Masonic ceremonies, and the huszas
of thousands of people. The same
order of line of march was observed
as yesterday, Mr. Davis being escorted
by Mayor Iteese, chairman of the
Monuin.nt Committee.
spoke in clear and resonant tones for
over half an hour. Notwithstanding
the continued ovations and receptions
tendered him during the past forty-
cight hours he looked remarkably
well. After his speech and the c re
monies incident to the' corner-stone
laying by the Masons, ho ' reverently
bowed his head over the spot, the
immense crowd remaining in like
attitude. After the ceremonies had
concluded, a reception of veterans
followed in the Governor's office,
many old soldiers crowding in ti
Bhake the hauls of Messrs Davis and
Gordon. This afternoon the Ladies'
Memorial Association
Mr. Davis and Gen. Gordon were
honored guests. During tho whole of
the two days' ovation to tho honored
ex-President and the distinguished
General, nothing has happened to mar
the pleasant features. Every one
seemed to think it his duty to assist
in the noble undertaking of erecting
a marble shaft as an attestation of tho
valorous deeds of the South's fallen
sons. Mr. Davis leaves to-morrow on
a special decorated train for Atlanta,
escorted by a committic from the lat
ter place, where he goes to attend the
unveiling of tho Hill monument.
From there he expects to go to Savan
nah. The Busch Zouaves of St. Louis
arrived here to night. They give an
exhibition drill heTe to-morrow.

tbe laying of ths corner stons of the

Tbe foundation of the monument only
was ready, presenting a surface of
thirty five feet square. Near at hand
stood the corner-stone, on which in

Ex-Gov. Wat's, the officers of

The old veterans standing near

pardonable pride. Ex Gov. Watts, pre

tne exercises witn reference to the
imporUncs of calling down tbe bene

and requested tbe Rv. Mr. Andrews,
p-.sor of tbe Methodist Episcopal
Church, to pray. Tne prayer was

It was some moments before h could

best nun ti had the charge, to repel
the besieging army, to make a some,
and attack in nans, ana reverse,
end if I miy lay eo in his presence
here, hi failed, but his failure was due
to tne failure of his (uides to carry
him where he proposed to go. Again,
that man and gillant soldier was the
one person whom Lea called at Apao
mattnx wnen ne wanted to know
whether it were possible to break the
Irce that obstructed his retteat toward
the mountains of Virginia. He an
swered that it was impossible; tba
after four years, of bard fighting, his
division was worn down toafiag'
ment. It being then impossible to
break tbe line that obstructed bis
march to the mountains, Lee, like
nauiingtop, witnout knowing, per
hape, tbat Washinttin ever nted
the expression, said if he
ciuld reach tbe mountains of
Virginia be oull continue the
war for twenty year?. But wheu
be found the line which ots racted
his retreat could not be broken be
eaid there was nothing ti do but su
render. Be it remembered, hiwevtr,
that Lee was sot tbe man who con
temphtfd the surrender of his prin
ciples, the power to fight or retreat,
and when he came to the latt mo
ment of surrender be said to Gen.
Grant: "I have come to treat with
yon for tbe pnrpoie of surrender,
but, Gen. Giant, understand, I will
surrendar nothing that r fleets npon
