The New Iron Road.
Last week we mentioned the proposed j Edi
new railroad connection with the West, I ^ ^
and again we a*k the attention of our j or
readers to this mutter. We presume that; sen
all are convinced of the necessity of this 1 the
road, and it is onlv remains for our peo- 's V
* 1 SPl-l
pic to act in concert and with the deter- ^ NV
mination to succeed. The Augusta and the
Greenwood road ?-an be used in common s',a
for more than forty miles and by a com- aR|i
lunation of Lowndesville and Calhoun's We
the money can readily be raised to finish f?.r
the road. The Greenwood road will
eventually be built to Laurens and Spar- jj
tan burg which will give Augusta a road Wi
more important than any now running ^
into that city. -j
The Spartanburg and Ashville road am
is being pushed forward with great vo^
energy and perhaps tLirty miles is now

Duncan thinks be will scale the moun- Sta
tains in less than a year from this time. |
Let the road be finished by Calhoun's I lew
Mills and Lowndesville to Anderson, and ' vot
then with a little help the Blue Ridge . ^
road can be completed, which-will givejtjie
Augusta another equally important road,! be;
and at the same time build up tho finest **
portion of Abbeville county. By the
Lowndesville section going in part- jt i
ncrship with tho Greenwood euter- j the
prise forty or fifty miles could be built
for a small cost to each, and then with ^
some further assistance from Augustaijor
Lowndesville could finish it to that town
when those on tho lino of tho route to An- ."
derson could easily carry it forward to tin
that point. lie;
The stock of the company should be I1'1
made receivable in payment of passage {"j.
or freight. This plan has been adopted Ian
in some of the States with wonderful l*,(
success. For instance if a merchant or |j?(l
nttier person?owes a biJl for freight, he i,ui
should be allowed to pay a portion of the th(
hill in his stock at par. Of course no
railroad could pay running expense* if
the whole was paid in stock, and to keep rot
the road in running condition a portion, Jw
say two-thirds or three-fourths of the
passage or freight bill should be paid in
money. By making the stock receivable Jo'
for part of anv amount due the road i?v
* Rc
much larget subscriptions could be se- jor
cured for the enterprise, and the builders tui
of the road would be made perfectly so- ?i1]
cure against a possible loss, whilo the ^
business on this plan would be greatly ers
augmented. All things being any way lOt
near equal, the stockholders would, as a n.?J
ti sni
matter of interest, patronize tho road in ??e{
which they were so much interested. am
. Let all stockholders have the privilege g?(
of paying twenty-five per cent, of any
bill they may owe the road, in tho sub- cat
scribed stock, and in our opinion the pre
money to build tho road can be easily "j*
raised. Tho la-xt convention which met ^
in Augusta seemed to favor the Georgia abi
side of the river for the location of the tee
road, but we can beat thom out of it easi- I11l>
. . mo
ly enough. In the first place we can ;lt |
raise more money thau they can, and in the
the next place the road can be built much lj>r
cheaper on our side of tho river?especi- e(|
ally if the combination is made with tho Ra
Greenwood road, as it should be. to
Two thiugs are necessary to build a
road?money and lalx>r. Of the first wo nu
have some, and of tho latter enough to inc
build forty railroads. Every farmer
through whose plantation the road may J?*
run could take profitable contracts, and da'
pay his subscription in work, ard then Th
his stock, by making it receivable -for
freight or passage bills, would always
command a fair price, even if ho should sui
be disposed to sell it. mil
Wo should be pleased to hear from any ^
friends of either road and will take juv
pleasure in publishing any suggestions sio
which our friends may choose to offer. an<

In Vindication. ?*!
In regard to the late election for Judge As
of the Supreme Court, and the ill-natured rep
remark of a communication in the Co- s,at
tht
lumlia Register upon the subjec t, General SiU
Meiiowan authorizes us to say that any ex1
"suspicions" that he made or attempted the
to make any combinations for the oftice is ^
utterly unfounded. Ho regarded the of- die
lice of great dignity?one neither to be slu
sought or declined, and ho acted on that cot
pre
idea from the beginning to the end. Af- ?
ter his friends, to whom he left the mat- no'
ler, saw fit to run him for Chief Justice,
ho requested them net to present his ^
Aunc at nil for the office of Associate. tw
Neither is it true that the meeting of the tw
Abbeville Democracy indorsed Willard. ^
Precisely tho opsosite is true. Resolu- we
tio is were introduced by Mr. Rooke, ex- on
pressing opposition, which doubtless 8'3
would have passed, but as the matter had ^
been left to the delegation in the Legislature,
by request of himself, the mover Pr
kindly withdrew them. A resolution ^
was afterwards passed indorsing Mc- 80J
Gowan for Associate Justice, and express- ve
ing an unwillingness to antagonise the tht
administration. It was not perceived ^ *
that It was unpatriotic to aspire to an
honorable office, or how it could be prop- wi
erly rogarded as antagonism to the administration.

into the canvass no doubt ho could 101

THANKSGIVING SERMON, *>>''
foui
tifu
Delivered in the Episcopal Church, will
at Abbeville on Thursday Morning gra<
Last, by the Rev. John Kershaw. "ot,
trul
' i Wo have assembled here (to-day) upon wh<
r; the recornmeudation of the civil authori- tini
i ty to observe this as a "day of thanks- unt
, | giving and prayer to Almighty God, for iug
ail his goodness and loving kindness to tior
dPand to all men, for all the blessings teri
he has bestowed on us, to invoke His di- bac
vine guidanco in the present and to im- the
r plore His protection in the future." pel
' j This is a couutry which is professedly can
> christian and it is therefore eminently wil
proper that we should thus remember the kin
i! Tjiiril our Grj<L His hand has evidently ins:
i j boon dealing with us uiul not always as wi?
, wo would have done, had we been the ar- less
f ehitecta of our own fortunes. But now of 1
t that we can see that wo have up?
(Iff
SOMETHING TO BE TUANKKUL FOR,
j and a cherished something wo wish (j
to preserve and perpetuate, it is Slin
i hoped that we have come here to- 0f i
i day and have in all earnestness and Ser
sincerity ottered up the ineense of prayer to ]
and uplifted the voice of heartfelt thanks- pri
j giving. It is tilting that we who for Go<
twelve years were almost entirely out- Cor
' casts from our own heritage and stran- cor
j ge/sin our own land, should now meet to the
j testify our acknowledgments to God for tha
, his deliverance of us, and our reinstate- age
t ment in that which by right is ours, age
i There has not been any very marked ad- ido
3 vance in material prosperity or towards ho^
f wealth as yet, but a most thorough revo- Ra
r lution in the incentives which move us un
0 to action, has occurred, and material hir
. prosperitj' will follow in due time, so
should no other unfortunate contingen- bri
T cies arise to operate against us, to prevent ev<
3 it. And the mainspring being
1 SET RIGHT,
!* having now great incentives and high ,
B motives to action, we ought indeed to oe
1 thankful. In its last analysis, we must 5
' find wtotivtx lying at the bottom of all ac H""
? tion. There is a reason for the action,
f there is a motive for the reason, and the |
seat of motives is in the will. Causes ine
ternal or external, first give an impulse
" to the will, the will forms the resolve, tho ?,V
o resolve issues into action. Up to this ,
time, h
s orn motive
'j has been to throw off an usurping }
\ government: and all our actions have nu
? been done in pursuanco of such re- fcU
J* solution. But along with this, which i,a
? is an entirely proper resolve, there an
has been much of hatred, malice aC!
\ and unchuritabloness ongendered in the ec(
? prosecution of our purpose. We have far
'? thought of revenge as well as of victory, so
j of retaliation as well as ridding our- wi
selves of -the incubus. Tho minds of er,
J, many of us have been familiarized with (?ju
7. the thoughts and words of violence, and jni
p in some instances they have issued in jnj
% deeds of that character. Anger has risen a N
in the heart like sinoke, it has blinded us ar(
i so that we failed to see clearly and were fro
,, deaf to gentle Suggestious. We lost sight ios
of the eternal and W1
0 immutable distincttons so
il between right and wrong and have 'ie
i- advocated the policy, and in some cases
s have carried it out, of 4Toing evil that "(
>f good may come out of it, whereas "pow- lJP
er belongeth unto God," and to him only
it appertaineth to overrule the designs of W?
i- evil to tne accompnsnment 01 goon, i
0 speak of the State generally and not with
s any special reference to any one comrnu- ar<
i- nitv. Now that God has apparently Pr'
* brought good to us out of the evil, how hu
li should we not be most humbly thankful er
li to him for it? For it cannot "rightly be jin.
k denied that all we had done, been carried J.'11
e out into its legitimate consequences, we ,|U>f
would not to-day be here to thank God for c<r
" his mercies and blessings to us. It is
n Wt
n A LAW tu
^ of the physical world, that a force, wt
a say light for instance, is force in all direc- in
tions, as knowledge in the intellectual an
1 world is power, but power in all direc- ar<
e tions, because knowledge sometimes pr
|t makes an accomplished villain, as well as thi
n an accomplished good man or a scholar, thi
? And in the prosecution of our purposes, we
force was introduced as a factor. That sin
.. force in the hands of a few wise and cau- th<
e tious men, may have remained conipara- pe
n tively harmless, but when issuing out of th<
I their hands, it falls into those of reckless, thi
indiscreet and violent men, it necessarily lu;
becomes an engine of indiscriminate de- an
s stmction, because there is nothing, hu- In:
manly speaking, to prevent what wo have wl
e applied to others being applied to us, vvd cai
like the boomerang it may have returned sir
'r to planus the inventor. I mention this im
, to show how ex
h god's hand br
Y has been most manifest in overruling our
y evil doings to our apparent good, and in .
r putting r. stop to the lawful results of our ..
Y own short sighted policv. Surely for this j "
? we should have grateful hearts and come ' .
before God confessing that "his mercy
y endureth forever." J*
Such in brief have boon our motives c]
o and our actions in the recent past, such |
V should be this day our postuio bofore .^e
- God. But let me "give you J.?*
o IHr
\ A WARNING. fel
V If we continue to cherish in our hearts a wt
_ fooling of bitterness and uncharitable- an
j liess against those who have been God's in|
n human instruments in our late humilia- lar
tion j if we continue to deem it right, as ths
P many of us have, to be unforgiving, and op
i. cherish a desire in our hearts for their be- thi
j ing punished in their turn, by God or by lai
li man; if we rail and revile and curse and th<
. proscribe and persecute them, can you an
-j suppose that that God whom to-day you l'ar
j have owned for your Father, will permit pa
n his children to' indulge such feolings th<
c. without inflicting further chastisement sot
linnn fhnm ? Tf ri> von must hnv? rfi:id nil
n the history of Israel with a veil before isl
r your eyes, for the story of that people be- tw
n comes the forecast of that of all people sic
ri whom God now calls his own, since the otl
world has been redeemed by tho death j
and passion of Jesus -Christ. And you pr
,r must have read with singular obliquity cit
t of vision, the history of Alexander's soi
e great empire, of Greece and of Home, wl
ig if you fail to see there as plainly as you do
j. may see the meridian snn In the heavens, en
o the chastisement of God upon those who dii
a forget his law and refuse to try to do his lai
e revealod will. at<
d WE ARE CHRISTIANS? t'11
'e that is, we are the servants of Christ. He
^ is our Saviour and example, our God and
our guide. So we profess. What then is
r" his teaching on this subject? "I say un- ,
" to you, "love your enemies, bless them
11 which curse you,do good to them that hate
you and prav for them that despitefully j
a use you and'persecuteyou." This is the _0l
}~ christian's example. God expects this i
* from us. And if he fiud it not and .
He still care for us, like a loving Father, :n(
loVing while Ho strikes, pitying while j
he bruises, He will produce it in us
0 through chastisement still sorer than any
u we have yet suffered. All this is hard to h
y do; hard upon flesh and blood, but the ^
power of God is here, grace is stronger, '
? than human infirmity and neither flesh
n and blood, nor the promptings of flesh t ,
y and blood f!or the deeas of flesh and
0 blood shall ever inherit the kingdom of
ir God. Hence it is that if we do not what
He commands for His sake, He will work

0 back to W(
? our old idols, bu
e pride, haughtiness, worldly position be
e and worldly mindedness? Has not w<
e our poverty only intensified our de- wt
d sire for such things? These are the po
n idols which God has struck at in J
i- our late humiliation; have we learned the th:
; lesson? Many of us have said, "though N<
9 our property of ono kind is gone, en
i{ and our cause is lost; yet nothing shall Ca
jf deprive us of our sectional pride, or turn em
g us away from the pursuit of our former In
. t worldly position." "Be these your Gods, th<
)- 0 Israel?" Have we but substituted bu
o these for others? Then let us beware ]
d lest we so anger our God that we, like ap
i. Ianfil. shall feel the amitinc* of his curse he
o and fill the graves of them that lusted. ar<
- THE MANTLE OF LOVE. J
0 And in our religious duties, how stands an
18 the case? Are we keeping back from the ar(
? Lord his lawful offerings and tithes and 0f
4 suffering the blessed Gospel to languish wc
4 for want of proper support? Let us cease
1 to robe our bodies so nchly and let us in- tj1(
'? vest our spirits with the mantle of that r
a love for God and our fellow men, which
r shows itself in generous offerings upon Le
0 his altar, arid in deeds of tenderness and tj0

Fence or no Fence.
rVhcther we should enclose our crops
i "turn out" the remainder of our
ins, or fence up the pasture and leave
s cultivated portions unprotected by
y kind of fence save the law -of the

inomy could bo practiced upon the

many thousands of mils mauled every

i)vocation to say hard words when fox

Dloction on that account; whon we
ink how much bettor one good cow is

eep and oven hogs together,- so tlmt

ice required our farmers to set about
proving their stock by abolishing the
isting fence law and allowing our
oad acres to be cultivated without the
les and miles of hideouu worm fences
erywhere seen.
[Jut then, when we have looked at the
ler side of this question, and thought
w ignorant most of our people are,
en of the old established law upon this
bject, and how sparsely settled our
jntry is, and how much "easier it is to
close the cultivated field than it would
to enclose all the remainder of the ma ity
of Southern farms, and how every
mer would think he was bound to
tee in all tiic balance of his lands if he
ire permitted to throw out his fields,
d what a small proportion of the labor;
classes throughout tho South are
idowners, (even though every 0110
it can owns a cow,) and that class are
posed to a stock law, because tlicjj'
ink that all the unenclosed pasture
ids are, by a natural right, as free to
2ir cows as u> mu owner 01 me pasture,
el of what minor importance to our
mers the care of stock is when comred
to the infatuation they have for
3 "cotton patch," and what* wonderful
ial and Industrial revolution it would
ike to establish a stock law and abol1
our fences, we have halted between
o opinions. Much can be said on both
les of tins question, and more on the
icr, look at it as you will.
\bsence of fences is an evidence ol
ogressive farming. When we go into a
y, a town or village, (and there arc
rue of these last in the United States]
lere the roses grow, as it were, "outors,"
and the vegetable gardens are not
closed, we at once know there is an oruance
there preventing stock going at
go, and with this idea is also immedi>Ty
coupled the thought that the cows
are aro carefully housed and well fed,
d, in consequence, the people have
mty of milk.
tiut if we see a village with its streets
d pavements tilthy, and the lots all en sed,
or even a farm with high "staked
d ridered" fences, we are not long in
mine to the conclusion that idlers and
predator*, four-footed and horned, are
and about.
VVe once heard a man say a traveler
uld go alone from northern Missouri
to Iowa and tell, without being inform,
when he entered the latter State, house
all the farming evidences wore so
uch more progressive and thrifty ; and
attributed it all to the fact that the
>ck were enclosed in Iowa and the
sps were not: whilst in Missouri the
verse was the case. We have been
Id, too, that in North Carolina, where
0 option was given to counties to vote
once or no l'enco," wherever "no fence"
evailed the peoplo have become reconed
to it, farms have been improved, ctft1
have increased in number and value,
d the farmers would not, if they could,
burn to the "old rut." We have alsc
ard grumblers at several places where
) have seen the no fence law in force,
it we did not regard their complaints
cause the thing seemed chronic, and
3 all know there are some men who

Fences are by no means universal
roughout the Union. Several of the
jrthwestern States requiro owners to
close their stock. In portions of North
rolina, Virginia and one or two northstern
States, the same law prevails,
one or two of the southwestern States
a eti'ort has been made, but without
ccess, to abolish fences.

gislature at it? presont session for acn,
as the State Grange appointed a
nmittee to memorialize that body upon
s subject, and wo trust they will uerm
the duty imposed upou them. The
nmittee consists of Messrs. lredel

Fodder Com?A Very Valuable Crop.;
A great deal bus been written
about fodder-corn in tbc past two or
three years and all but very young
farmers?young in rcspect to their
farming experience- may care to
read nothing further on the subject
?and for one or two reason*;
Either that they havo realized tho
value of fodder-corn, uriders and
bow to preserve it and therefore
need no further suggestion j or that
they have become so discouraged
at their inability to euro and presci
ve it porft.-cily have thrown it
out as being altogether unprofitable.
The writer came very near to
this conclusion himself two years
ago, hut thanks to patient prreeve
ran co in cultivating it, as Jar from
such now. lie tried it in drills at
first and a great many stalks grew
so largo it required weeks, yea, almost
months to euro it sufficiently
to allow of being preserved in bulk.
He lost a large part of the crops
of two years and became almost disgusted
thereat. Concluded to try
again and plant in hills instead of
drilling it continuously in the row.
Laid off rows 3 feet apart and dropped
10 or 12 grains at every 2 feet.
The corn received 3 cultivating*
and two hoeings. The stalks were
of more uniform size and became
cured in a reasonable time. The
stalks however, were atill found too
large and coarse, the stock refusing
much of it. ThiH year the writer
thought he would improvo on thin
so he put 20 or 25 grains to the hill
and manured with a handful Jib
of cotton seed killed to the hill
The result was gratifying indeed,
fche tall slender succulent stalks,
curing easily in 10 days of pretl)
weal her and none rejected by tht
stock. An improvement stili shal
bo made the coming year by check
ing the land at 2 feet so the hoeing
can be dispensed with, using tht
cultivator from first to last, putting
iU to zo grains 01 corn ami a nana
f'al of cotton seed to each hill ae
before. A number of hills wer<
weighed when the corn was in
bloom t:nd found to average from 1
to 11 pounds green. A ton of the
green fodder will yield about 40(.
pounds of cured fodder. In checking
at 2 feet, if the 10,890 hills }'iclc!
7 lbs. the smallest average staled
above the result would be 7G.00(
lbs: of green l'odder, equal lo 15,GU(
lbs. cured, or 7J tons. B}- using 7C
to 80 busbels of cotton seed, thif
result can be obtained on land thai

Water j nci of Horses' a ft f.h
j Fei.dino.?The .National Livt
Stock Journal, in giving direction
for the care of horses, says:
! "Another common fault in the
alimentation nf hordes is the lead
ing to water just after a full feed o:
grain. The first effect of thin is ti
largely distend the stomach; ant
! the result may be af serious as i;
the material were masticated graii
and saliva. But," should this dan
ger be avoided, matters are not nec
r essarily left in a better state. Tin
; sudden and excessive influx of wa
i ter is likely to wash much of tin
contents of the stomach into the in
1 testiries before the nitrogenoui
, principles hav<^ been digested, ant
fermentation, extricatiou of gasses,
1 over distensions, colics and inliama
| tions result. Even this is not all
The application of an excess of cole
1 water on the mucous membrane o
the stomach and intestines cause*
vascular congestion and violeni
muscular contractions, so that al
tend to digestive disorder of a dan
gerous nature. Copious draughts
of ice water are hurtful alike
| to man and beast, If it must
I be taken it should be in
small quatuitic'8 only, and frequent
| ly. But a drink of water of mod
i erato tempera)uro, just after a feet
of grain, is full of peril to the so
J liped. Thirst should be allayed be
fore the feed is given ; and if any i:
allowed after, it should be merely t
mouthful, until the lapse of one oi
| two hours' time has been had l'oi
1 gastric digestion. Alter a feed o:
hay there is comparatively liitlt
i danger. From the excessive saliva
ry addition to the hay, and the com
' paratively e-mail amount of its albuminoids,
these are rapidly dis
solved out and digested, and iho fur1
ther addition of water is often
[rather favorable thun otherwise in
'hastening its progress into the bowels,
where the digestion of iit
starch, sugar, fat and other respiratory
elements may be completed."
A nkw rse fob Onions.?A Kew
Hamshire paper states that the speedip?t

the case of a Portsmouth horse is cited,

I swallowed them lieean to cough and
'sneeze and prance about, appearing
quite indignant, and refusing to touch
the remaining onion*. For full five
minutes he wept at the nose, and then

of the epizootic since, but lie had
the courage to eat the onions remaining
in the crib the next day after the

Cooling off suddenly when heated t
sends many of our farmers' youth to '
an early tomb. It is often a matter of
surprise that bo many farmers' boys
and girls die of consumption. It is
thought that abundant exercise in the
open air is directly opposed to that disease.
80 it is, tut judgment and
knowledge of the laws of health are
essential to preservation of health under
any circumstances. When overheated
cool off slowly?never in a
strong draught of air. Gentle fanning,
especially if the face is wet with
cold water, wiil soou produce a tie- <
ligbtful coolness, which leaves no disagreeable
results.
