The Augusta and Knoxville Railroad.1 j1
It seems that our people are iiot taking j t
much active interest in this great iron v
highway, and without effort we need not p
expect the inestimable blessings of a first ^
class road. Let this road and the Greenwood
road use the same trunk to Dorn's
ft old Mine, and there will be 110 trouble
to raise the necessary funds to complete
the road. Let the stock be receivable for t
freight and passage and enough can bo

It is j hi possible to buiM the road if everybody
looks wise, and saj's that it will j
not be built and at the s?mo time refusing
to aid in its construction. The Green- ^
wood corporators seem to be in earnest
and will likely go ahead anyhow. Sue- t

\ditor I'rcxs and Banner :
As Ihc Legislature at the last session
iasscd what is known as the Fence Law, ..
loujd it not be wisdom for the tax payrs
to take steps to have the matter disussed
during the present Summer, and
m* eueh Township to get up the petition
it" seventy-live tax payers, to have the
lection ordered? It is true, it would ^
111 pose extra woik ior uic c ounty commoners
but they would willingly disburse
that duty if tho tax payors request
liein to do .so. Should tho matter be negceted
and tho discussion be left for tho ^
text campaign, is thero.not danger that
ome olllco seekers will attempt to make
i hobby of the fence law and other side
?sues, to ride into ottico, for which tliov %
.ro incompetent, and as we are not enirelv
out of the woods yet, our true poli- p
y is to be watchful. Then let each n
township get up thoir petitions to the v
,'ounty Commissioners by the 10th of it
Fuly so the election can be ordered in ?
iaoh Township tho same day in August, 1(
nd an expression of opinion be given by s
he tax payers. If thore is objection to p
he present law let them indicate to the n
legislature what they dosire and no lr
loubt the Legislature at tho next session u
vill adopt some law to meet the wishes of o
ho people. The question is ono that will \\
dtnit of argument. As it lias two sides, o
ot us therefore have the matter before tl
lie people during tho summer and not d
vait for the next campaign for demago- S
:ucs, without merit or qualification, to ti
iuve a liobbv on which to rido into oftlce. 0

'Small Farmer" goes for "Patron'" e
- Scalp-Raising-?Whcre Does the j,
Brain Really Lie? u
Editor Press and Banner: ]>
1 see over tho signature of "Patron" a s]
cry poor (in my estimation) defense of >
lie old fence law. fi
He first asks what is the small farmer oi
o do? I say for him to take a part of v
lis rails and put them around some of n
lis land that he is buying guano every v,
ear to put on, and make his own ma- n
in re at home to enrich the remainder v
,nd he will have room for plenty pasture fc
lid farm. H
Second, ho asks, what will a small far- d
ner do with his crop when stock is driv11
through the country? If wo liave to tl
;eep up fences for the benefit of stock o
>eddlers and then pay them one hun- n
lied per cent profit lor" their stock wo are c<
n a bad fix. He says that the small far- g
nfirs nfivnr will airreo to the no fence law n
,nd if compelled to do ho he will leave "
he country. We can very well do with- u
ut any man that is disposed to have his U
tock to spunge on his neighbor's farm it
nd cat the grass that his own stock ai
ught to get, and not only eat grass but o
>ick up what feed ho puts out for his own d
tock. Such men are not much advanuge
to the country. According to "Mr. c<
'atron's" logic the small farmor is n
mfortunate to have no timber to lj
:eep a good fence around all his crop, v
.nd there are hundreds of tliem in this V
ounty. They, as lie says, will have to 01
nave their native State and go where c<
nen arc compelled to keep their stock o
enccd in so they can plant and grow c<
heir crops, and Mr. Patron's stock not o:
at it all up. As to the man that has no f<
uid the Legislator has very wisely pro- li
ided for tenants. I will hot say any- t,
hing about the advantage of fencing tl?& a
tock in place of the crop as all sensible tl
nd fair minded men have long ago seen tl
Ijo neccsitv of it. Mr. Patron says that si
ny common man that would vote for the a
jm e law is wanting in brain. Any man j fc
bat cannot see that we are compelled to j v
top cutting down all the timber, and the r<
ooner the better, has no brain. h

Alitor Press mid Banner:
In my last communication, I was left
articipating in the pleasures incident to
lountain life, wbi?:h, to those reared in a
warmer climate, and are lovers of nature
1 its wildest garb, and especially who
in appreciate the beauty of fertile val>ys,
and the grandeur of cloud-capod
limmits, are indescribable. History lias
ictured to us tho sublimity of Alpine
eights, and bards have chanted their
lys upon the banks of the "blue Danbe,"
yet how few ore aware, that some
f tho 'grandest scenery of nature, lies
ithin the wild and beautiful highlands
f our own Carolina*. Tho climate of
lesc mountain regions, om bracing as it
oes, the medium temperature of the
outhern States, is balmy and invigorang
and unsurpassed on the Continent,
wine to its salubrity, and the magnifi
2nce of scenery, Caesar's Iload, which is
peak of tho Blue Ridge, and about 5,000
)et above the ocean's level, is probably
io.st frcquonted by tourists. Standing
pon tho cliff, and looking downward we
ehold an almost fathomless depth, covred
with a carpet of verdent foliage,
irough which can be traced, by the risig
fog, the streams which flow from the
lountain side, meandering through tho
laius below. To the west, our vision
i lost in the distanco where earth and
seem to blend into an azure hue.
'ear by are the Saluda Falls, which burst
om the mountain side sit a height of
ight hundred feet, and fall in fruntic
ildness into depths below. The magificence
of tho scene, is best appreciated,
hen the sun first gilds tho lofty sumtits
dispelling the thick fog which en*
clops the surrounding country, and
lints in bold relief the sides of Table

This section is sparsely inhabited,
tiougli its sturdy settlers reflect the glow
f health and breath the spirit of contentlent.
While the great Southern Staple,

reat mountain chains, the Blue Ridge

Great Smoky" 011 the western,?a dismceof
two hundred and fifty miles in
mgth, and titty in breadth, yet its valsys,
of which we shall speak hercaller,
re unsurpassed in their beautiful fields
f eorn, yielding from fifty to one bunTed
bushels per acre.
For a few years past, a large amount of
orn has been distilled in this section and
otwithstunding the rigidness of revenue
iws, there are some adventurous spirits,
ho still persist in this illicit traffic,
/bile we do not approve of the violation
f the laws of the country, we do
jnfess a sympathy for the above class of
ur citizenship, when we consider, that
>rn is thoir only product for sustenance
f life ?<* well as the source of revenue
>r Kx. M1.1v of them reared in the de1<;S
of the mou.:t'?>ns, too poor to have
ansportation for their crop to market
nd ignorant of the penalties of violating
le law, resort to the above means to pay
leir tax, and to relieve their own necessities.
We are pleased to know petitions
re being sent to the President, asking
ir clemcnev toward these unfortunate
ictims, ancl begging the removal of the
jvenue officers, who in many instances
avo froru more expensive than profitale
to the Government. The ill conduct
I'these officers in abusing the families
nd destroying the property of suspected
istillers, and acting more lawlesly than
le parties arrested, has produced a bitter
nimosity against them. As an instance
f this feeling, wo will relate an occurracc
which happened to the writer allough
it was previously agreed not to
(11 tales out of school.
A revenue officer, accompanied by band
f troops had made a raid across the
lountuins, and succecded in capturing a
w distillers. Traveling ulong a few days
ler, I chanced to t>ass a group ol' mouiilineers
who doubtless, were discussing
ic fate of their companions, and greeted
icin with the salute of "Hurrah for
[ayes and the revenue," when no sooner
ne of tho number with enraged counteance,
challenged us to "light out of thITt
lar buggy, and I'll knock h?1 out of
ou," Of course we did not "light."
From Csesar's Head, wo directed our
?ur across the "Blue Ridge" into the
lountain regions of North Carolina?a
action whicli abounds in seenerv of tho
."Of rla<1..rin?;nn niwl vi i'l.l rnmr.
iticenco. Descending the Western
ope of this range, we renchod the faioiis
valley of the "French Broad" in
ransvlvania county. As a description
f this favored county of nature, I refer
ou to the following sketch from the pen
f Miss Fisher, who has contributed so
irgely to American literature.
'There is no spot which wears the crown
r sylvan beauty so peerlessly as that
,ir county. Other counties may boast
lountuiiw as high, and atmosphere as
ure, but no other has in its aspect such a
linglingof the pastoral and the grand,
o other possesses such graceful alternaons
of landscape, which, with the
rong effect of contrast charm the beolder
at once. It is a thrill of positive
ipture that one sees for the lirst time
le matchless valley of the "French
road"?serene with golden plenty, and
eld in the soft embrace of circling
lountains. This queen of mountain
alloys lies twenty-two hundred loot
lx>ve the sea, and has at this boint an avrage
width of over two miles. The
iree forks of the French Brond?two of
hich, rise in the Balsam, and one in the
lue Ridge?meet at its upper end, and
le united stream Hows, with many a
'indinir curve, down the emeriild nliiin.
Training the broad lields and grassy
leadows are forest clad heights, and yet
r?yond rise8 the Hlue majesty of the
randest peaks in Western Carolina."
From the top of Dunn's Rook, wo fully
ipreoiate the writers power of doscripon.
In the distance could be seen the
aid summit of the Chimney Top, Hog
aek, and Pisgah, whoso range extended
i until iLs azure beauty melted into blue
ltinity. For fifteen miles, the pastoral
alley lies spread in smiling beauty, with
,'ery curvfe of the river plainly to be
aced throughout that length. Besides
lountain heights, the scenery of this
>unty is enhanced by the lovely falls of
oncstcr, of Loking Glass and Glen Can
Atlor an hour's drive from the rook, we
(ached the quiet villago of Brevard,
hero we were welcomed with that hositality,
so characteristic of this niounin
region. Though in its infancy it lias
large soul, and its citizens are unsurissed
in refinement and morality. Its
nrivaled advantages ol' both soil and clilato
are attracting a rapid flow of imrni ation.
During my sojourn in this vilgo
I visited several placets of interest in
io surrounding community, though
one impressed me more favorably than
le celebratod "Brook's Farm,'' located a
w miles distant, upon a loly eminent
i'erlooking the valley of the French
road, and around whoso base winds tho
ream in silent magesty. The pleasure
I" this tour was doubly appreciated by
ie writer in being accompanied by the
scomplished Miss , who added much
i my enjoyment while in Brevard. In
et? association only enhanced my appreation
of that most estimable virtue,
nown as Humc-ility. Many returns of
lis occasion.

The following extracts are from his ad- :t^
dress: s!:
"I esteem it no ordinary honor to have In
been called to the very pleasant duty of 1
extending to the International Convcntion
of Y. M. V. A. the distinctive wel- jy,
come of the evangelical churches to our in
eitv. And now, in their name, I say, i"
brethren, 'Welcome, welcome?thrice
welcome!' And you may rest assured i'j
this is no mere empty word of formal of
politeness on the one hand, nor of gush- (.'<
nig sentimentalism on the other, but a ">
word that comes from our hearts just be- '''
cause we like you, and that because, from
calm, sober conviction, these churches "i
honor and appreciate 3-our efforts to bring
lumnp tn ihf. iJtvat. kinir Jesus, whom
they all recognize us their adorable llead.
And with your indulgence for a few niinutes
I propose to present the reasons on tii
which our conception of your worthiness
of t!ils welcome is founded. J1'
"The first ground of our approval of {?
and alfection for tho Young Men's Chris- i,3
tian Association is that, though a volun- f.>
tary association, without any sort of de- "t
nominational connection, you show the "J;
churchliness of your principles by de- sj,
clining to set up any other interest apart m
from the church, and have steadfastly Hi
maintained that ground lor many years Sr,<
past. In the very admirable little" man- { "
ual to guide your olliciul worKers?a '
model, as I conceive, of a tract, keeping hi
its one purpose in view?I liiul, in capital i!>
letters, this rule: 'Advise young converts
to join some Kvangclical Church.'
And added to this the observation: If f,-.
our work is to be lasting, it must tend to ex
strengthen, build up and increase tho l,e
power of the Church of Christ.' Thus {V
the Y. M. C. A., recognizing fully the ul]
visible church as a divinely appointed jt
institute, in which Christ, tho Head and t!i
King, hath set some prophets, some apos- Jcj
tlcs, it<\, claims only to go l'orlh under
the broad commission given to every be- Ul'
liever. 'Let him that heareth say come,' kl
to bring sinners into the church. The co
Association, in so far as it is an evangelizing
institute, has never sought its field jf,
of labor among the churches, nor obstru- ()f
ded its methods upon the order of the se
churches, but aims to reach the vast outlying
masses which, practically, are not
reached by the churches, and in that iJ?
i miuuS/kn r\rA?w?you miltr tn ?iiil tJlft <
efforts ol' the church to reach these <l<
masses. It recognizes its work as aim- iis
ply that of tho servants in the parable jj,
sent out 'into the highways and hedges, in
and into the streets and lanes of the city tli
to compel them to come in.' And when "f
they have brought them in and given '\r
them in charge to the regular servants of
the King's palace their mission is finished p;
and they are off again to the highways to m
bring others in 1 If the few excellent
brethren who still have fears and douhts ^
whercunto this will grow wore ordy bet- th
ter acquainted with tho principles and j fp
practice of the Youn^j Men's Christian I of
Association, as now organized, I am per- j P<
suaded they would be foremost to unite r?
with us in this welcome of approval. tli
"Speaking not as for churehly men, al- w
low me to express special approbation of i <l1
your wisdom in keeping clear of an error
which so many in th e church have of
fallen into?the error which tinds its ut- ta
terance in the saying, 'Preach the gospel, fr<
and let these utterances of the church
alone.' f)i}
"This approval of the evangelical
churches rests upon the ground of that a
singular wisdom and prudence display- ne
cd in the history of your work for many |!i:
years past in keeping you clear of tho ,j-s
hobbies of one-ideali.sm,' the sensational s<;i
extravagances, and the fanaticisms which su
have wrought the ruin of so many vol- pa
untary organizations in time past. I attribute
this wholly to the fact that you
nave ueen uu iur win giuumiut; ui ijkjjci
Word of God, with the enlightenment of fo;
the Holy Spirit,- whom you have so earn- al
estly sought to honor. Hobby-riding lius j'J,
been the great destrd^er of politicians, 0J.
but still more fatal to moral reformers, ty
Onco the hobbj' has been contrived by al!
the patentee of some now idea, then by i
stress of public opinion he forces good cli
men of far more sense than ho to mount {JJ;
it, if only for experiment's sake. But ^
once mounting there is no getting down as
till the hobby itself rushes off the track ?a
and over the precipice. (The speaker ?c
here illustrated his idea of the hobbies by jj'
the case of Paddy 0:1 the colt, crying lie ja
could 'Naither git olf nor stick on.) Al- th
low me to say, in conclusion, Mr. President
and members of the Convention, J'J;
that, in my judgment, the fact that L,j,
through so many years of labor, lming in
to deal with so many varieties of human |un
nature, and exposed to so many tempt a- \ '>>'
tions to go astray, you have yet been able j J
so wisely, with so'mueh Christian mod-! *
esty and humility to achieve so magnifi-j f"(
cent a success in (his great Christian; j,c
work, entitles you to the contidenco of! or
all evangelical Christians, and therefore j to
speaking again, as from tho depths of j
the heart, I say for thom, " Welcome 'n{,
brethren, welcome.'* | eh
