"Rainfall."
Wo give elsewhere a most interesting j j
article on the subject of "Rainfall, or the!
value of our Forests to the Farming In- j
terest of our country." We hope that no I
man may fail to raul it. If alter reading j ]
it you still believe in cutting down the i
last tree in our forests to build fences to j <
keen a "rasor back" hog out of vour corn I <
fielu we shall be mistaken, l'hat's all. 1
We need the remnant of timber lolt us to |'
build houses for the thrifty people who M
are to grow up and settle in 'our country. ?
Our population is greatly increasing and |
in a few years there will be great need of j,
building* material. If we cut down all
of our timber of what can we build j <
houses? t
Tax Levy.?The Town Council of j
Ninety-Six have levied a pretty heavy
tax on the business community of that '
town, which of course will eventually J.
come off those .trading at that mart, i J
Each guano company, $20; merchants, $5!'
to $10; insurance com pan j*, So; agent sale;,1
wagons, Ac., S10; tin shop, ?5; wood orj
carriage shop, &>; mill, $ *>; barber shop, '
?2.50; physician, $5; dentist, $ ">; lawyer,
; builcler or contractor, $5; cotton
weigher, 35; hotel, So; all real estate, 15;a
cents on the one hundred dollars worth. | ^
If the Town Council lind it neccssarv to c
levy such a tax now, what would bc'tho;1
levy with a Court House situated there? it
A tax of this kind will likely l?e unsatis- j t
factory, except to the most patriotic.
Thk Poor.?When the Kads were injs
full control of this county several years O
(l,n nnnpwwt llsnliiiiit si\ thousand']
dollars annually. Last year they cost on- L
lv al?out twenty-two hundred dollars; L
and now we learn that still better ar- s
rangements can be made if the County
Commissioners would let them out un- t
der contract for three or four years. We a
know that this matter will be looked into j %
by the present commissioners. If thcv L,
can save the tax payers a dollar, | c
it is their duty to do so. Let the con- [
tract for keeping the poor be made on
such terms and time as will be most beneticial.

Dk. H. O. Clarkk, of Wooster, Mas- b
sachusetts, the travelling agent of that famous
tlrm of Dr. J. C. Aver it Co., of j.
Lowell, was in town last week. We have ^
had business transactions with Dr. Clarke, j
and the tirni which he represents, for the
past eighteen years and have always

with whom to deal. Dr. J. C. Ayer ifc Co., 1'
were tho only lirm that settled anti-war 1
claims with us since the war. Theirmed- %

Wk had the pleasure of meeting last u
week Mr. Franklin Adaius, who was 11
here in the interests of that well-known
firm, of Bowie tfc.Moore, of Boston. Mr. c
Alex Bowie, tiie senior member of the ii
firm spent some time- in Abbeville after t;
the war, where he made manv friends, a
Mr. Moore, his partner, is a Yigrinian,
and of course both are thoroughly in r
sympathy with the South, while their 0
agent, Mr. Adams, is in love with one of a
our most beautiful young ladies. All ?
those facts go to make this house as thor- 5
oughly Southern as it is reliable and
correct in its business transactions. "

Editor Press and Banner:
Silt:?During this drougth of news an \
imperfect sketch of the trip of the Abbe- a
ville boys to Elberton, and the exciting 5
contest of Carolina and Georgia at the 1
bat may not prove wholly uninteresting t
to your numerous readers. The writer 1
left Abbeville Saturday at two o'clock in- u
tending to go by way of Lowndesville, c
to spend the Sabbatli I t that pleasant vil- 1
lagc, and meet the Abbevillo boys Mon- >
day morning at the picturesque Cherokee
I* orU Oil 111U oavttuuuii* u ucu iuuuj vv i
start on Monday 1 was agreeably sur- a
prised to learn that some of Lowndes- a
ville fair daughters were going by way s
of Harpers Ferry, and as I prefer the a
company of ladies to that of men, 1 con- t
eluded to go with them. I had 110 reason a
to regret the change of route. We ar- t
rived at the pleasant little count}' seat of c
101 berton about 12 o'clock. I rodo up to g
the barber shop, and inquired for tho v
best hotel, while making the inquiry I v
was surrounded and captured, by the li
"No Names" and informed that I had a
been assigned to tlie Globe Hotel, 1 told Ii
them 1 had nothing to do with the game, fi
was simply a spectator. They told mo 1 1
was from Abbeville, that 'was all they s
wished to know. 1 was then introduced 1
to Dr. Edmunds, who, by the by, is a 11a- t
tive of this county and a prince among <]
hotel keepers. v
Alter resting awhile, I was taken in r
charge by the handsome genial local n
editor of the Elberton, Gazette, who seem-. 1:
ed determined 1 should not feel like a t
stranger in a strange place, and my ex- c
perience during tho four hours that s
elapsed after my arrival, before the bal- f;
ance of the Abbeville boys put in an ap- p
pearauce, will justify the assertion that a v
more friendly, sociable and hospitable
town cannot be found in the two States, u
1 felt just as much at homo going around h
with tho "handsome long short stop'' r
making acquaintances, as i wouiu jiave v
been upon the streets of Abbovi'<e. b
The Abbeville company took u^ their t
line of inarch about live o'clock a. in,, ti
and arrived at El berton about four i.\ the ?
evening. The troop was composeu of s
Captain Cxson's company of 8 regulars a
and fourteen volunteers. It seemed that li
knowing the moral force ot' numbers t
they intended to take Elberton by storm, a
The regulars, volunteers and all wore a
captured without a struggle, taken into a
custody, and imprisoned in various pri- ti
vat? houses of the town, with the pnvi- r
lege of going and coming at will. The li
same efforts that wore used to make the e
writer feel at home in the early part of o
[ the day were used upon each, and every li
one of the visitors, with the same sue- 1<
: cess. c
I In the evening the boys were invited to Ij
! attend the exercises in the College ilall <
which consisted of speeches by the small j p
boys, a public debate by the older n
scholars, c losing with an able an eloquent
address by W. U. Shannon, Esq. Tuesday
morning was agreeably passed by
the visitors in listening to speeches talking
to the ladies, Ac. The exercises of
this nourishing school reflects great
credit upon its handsome teacher, Prof. 1
[ Wright.
T1TK OAMK. s
The game was called about four o'clock ?
but long before that hour the spectators r1
had been pouring in and when the game ^
opened numbered abjut fifteen hundred '
souls. The battU was ably l'ought, and |"
every inch of ground closely contested, j ^
The" crowd was very much excited, and
could hardly refrain from participating "
in the game by telling the players what /
to do. It would be less mortifying to .
visiting clubs, if all communities would 1
follow the generous and sensible course
practiced by the good people of Elberton,
that of cheering a good pl;i}', regardless |
of who or what side makes it. The opin- ?
ion of the majority of the spectators was, ?
tlflit the Abbeville* boys would come oif ?
victorious, and they were very much "
graditied when they learned that the gallant
Georgians came out 3 snores ahead, j
but there was 11 me of that demonstrative J
exultation wincn 1 nave seen praciiceu
here in "retried" Abbeville, when wo
have come of victorious.
The Georgia boys attributed their dofeat
at Abbeville to the intimidation
exerted upon them by the presence ol"
the fair girls ol' Abbeville, which is
equivalent to saying that were not accustomed
to the sight of pretty and fascinating
girls. I beg leave to differ with
them as to the girls of their town, and
can only account for the assertion on the
following ground: "Girls are not without
prettine&s save in their own town."
We could hardly mako the people of Elbcrton
believe that the majority of thepeople
of Abbeville wished the gallant Georgians
to win by a small score. The truthfulness
of the assertion began to force itself
upon them when they sow how little
the Abbeville boys cared about the defeat.
But Elberton may do her best on the deciding
game, for Abbeville is resolved to
win and resolution is omnipotent. The
Abbeville boys attribute their defeat to
the absenco of Graydon one of their best
players. Captain McMahon of Crawford
officiated as umpire with full .satisfaction
to both clubs. It could not be otherwise
as ho was unpartial in all of his rulings
and decisions.
TUE "WALK AROUND'' Oil INTRODUCTION
I? ARTY.
In the evening the young ladies and
gentlemen met in tfce College Hall for
the purpose of introducing the Abbeville
boys to the fair girls of the town. Elberton
does this 111 a manner peculiar and
appropriate, from the writer's observation.
It is an improvement upon "steal partners"
the modus operandi is as follows:
A space forty or titty feet square is
cleared, for the purpose of promenading
or walking around, a few seats are placed
around this cleared space, the ladies as
they arrive are seated and thoso desiring
an introduction are presented by a committee
appointed for that purpose ; they j
at once join the piomenaders, ,vlien ail
: the ladies present are upon the floor, the
changing and stealing partners begins.
. This is decidedly the most successful and 1
pleasant way I have over seen to mako
acquaintances rapidly. If any of the Abbeville
boys failed to enjoy themselves or '
make acquaintances it was no fault of
the girls or of the committee. Wo all feel
under special obligation to Messrs. Jones
llarper and \Y right.
THE BALL.
After the visitors had been introduced
1 to the girls, it was announced that those
[ wishing to dance would proceed to the ball
! room at the Globe Hotel. The writer did
} not attend, but was informed by those
who participated that it was a pleasant afl
fair. This ended the round of pleasure
- and excitement which had been going on
i without abatement since our arrival.
Judging by the ravings of some of our
1 young men, they must have been robbed
t of their hearts, but I think tho Elberton
9 girls have too much experience to pay attention
to those who imagine they are in
, love with every pretty lace tlioy meet.
} We wont to Elberton sanguine of sue1
cess ; we were beaten fuirly, and square"
ly ; we were treated like princes j we reJ
turned satisfied, and gratified, to find
that the largo majority of Abbeville were
glad of our defeat. "We learn that tiie
- third and deciding game will take place
-1 next Friday, the 20th instant. We hopo
r | the Elberton boys wtll remember the
s i moral force of numbers and bring a lar-1
ger delegation than they did before.

less of time" to see every old Hold no1
11 waste as pasture ground, yieldin
ich crops of waving grain and luxuriei
trasses. For the last few days wo hav
icon a great change coining over tli

4th of August there will bo but little oj

Wo throw out this assertion that n
vhito nor black man can be injured b
oting for the law.
(To explain, we say if lie is an owner (
and ho can fence "in his stock cheapc
han ho can his farm, and if he is not
au?l owner lie has to keep the fcncc
,ny wav, and we contend can ir
lose stock with one-tenth the railing thu
ic can the farm, and hence saves labc
vhich is money.
If the poor man, white or black, vot
.gainst the law he injures himself bot
s a hireling and renter. To explai
gain, if ho is a hireling the labor of ra
pl'itting is most trying upon his strengt
nd physical endurance aud oven sonu
iines kills. Then why split new rail
nd butcher our forest when we can tak
he old rails and fenco in our few scrubb
attic made tailless and earless by Gran
;er Sam's dogs. Again, if he is a rente
\-a contend that by voting for the law h
rill reduce his rent. In what way wil
io? Instead of 75 acres out of every 10<J
.ores being under cultivation we woul
lave 800 acres under i'arrn and only 200 i
ine and luxuriant pasture. Then th
und owner could afford to reduce rent t
uit every renter, white or colorci
'arms would rent for 1 bale of cotton t
hu horse and the land owner would the
[uadruplo his present rent or hence th
ast benefit to cverybony. The colore
nan's interest has been considered in thi
natter as well as the white man's, th
iborer's as woll as the proprietor's, lienc
lio equity of the law. We advise th
olored man to study over this matte
eriously, and we know he will be
riend to the law, as it gives him a]
lasturnge necessarj' for his stock an
nil defend him in his rights.
There is no political significance o
indue advantage in this law, and w
iopo that every friend will come to th
escue and pass the law. By so doing h
rill have the love of his neighbor, th

Editor l'reisis and Banner:
Your manly position and free exprcf
lorioi sentiment regarding an question
li'eeting the public interest, are attract
11 g the must hearty* approval from a
lasses of society. It is a deplorable fac
et nevertheless true, that so many (
ur newspapers, which are the propc
ustodians of the nation's welfare, actuu
i*d either by personal or selfish motive:
l'ten prove derelict in duty, and recreati
? the sacred trust comuiittod to thei
iceping. Therefore, when a journalit
ias the moral courage to cast asid
icrsonal considerations, and regardlei
if the sneers and jeers of opponent
d discuss all public question
trictly upon tho basis of justice an
uerit, it is not surprising that ho rc
eivos his reward in tho full conlidcnc
,nd approbation of tlie masses, aud eve;
lie respect and admiration of his oppc
icnts. Such is the light in which the }>uL
ic hold the 1'rests and Banner in regal*
i) tlie two questions now agitating th
(ublic mind, viz.: the formation of
lew county, and the "fence law*"
As to tho utter inexpediency of th
Lrst of theso objects, which is clearl
pparcnt to every unbiassed intelligei
nan without tlie incorporate limits <
he village of Ninety-Six, wo intended t
xpress our views, though we have cor
iuded to refer all advocates of the mov(
vliich wo are glad to say, only consist <
'Corn Grove" or "Cow Grove," and fei
)Uiers oi sucu canuer, u; your auiu uis
ussion and irrefutable arguments coi
aincd in tlio last issue of ^-our pape
,Ve must confess our inability to si
nuch point about the article of "Cor
irove," unless it be as lie says, "we dou
vant to stay with you"?"we aro wiliin
ind ablo to take CJtre of ourselves"veiglity
argument this!
As to the "fence law," we take pleasui
11 commending your views, togetlic
vith those of "Saluda," "Granger fcsam,
uid others. "We consider the passage <
he law a necessity, and fraught with tl
nost vital importance to the peopl
)ur forest has been felled 111 order l
ieep up fences, our lands have been in
joverished, anc^the only means left us I
restore it to its primeval condition is 1
ibolish the present ruinous system wliic
is only a question of time. 1 will ventuj
,0 give a few reasons for adopting tl
Vmco law. which 1 trust vou will ampl
yFirst?The
present "fence law" was e:
tablished during the lirst settlement i
;he country, which was then, a vast fore
with only a few jpots for cultivation,
was considered easier and less expense
:o fence to up tlie small area under cult
nation than the immense territory m
cultivated. Acting from this princip
upon which tho present system wi
founded, would it not be easier and le;
expensive now, to fence up the small ar<
not in cultivation for pasturage, than tl
immense territory which is cultivated
This wo think would justify abolishii
the present system.
Secondly?The timber of the counti
diminishes as the population annual
increases,?hence tho utter inability in
few years to keep up the fences, wlii<
even now, fail to protect crops from tl
encroachments of a hungry calf, whii
if not blown away by the winds
March, often dies upon tho public liig
way, from the want of a littio pasturaj.1
Such a thing as a "legal fence," which
"horse high, bull strong, and pig tight
is as great a curiosity at present, as t
mere i- mogrammo of a fence will bo
the future.
Thirdly?Fencing cost more than sto<
is worth, which statistics will prove.
Fourth?By changing the present sj
tcin, a better class of stocK win do mn
duced, to tho exclusion of the rag-t
and bob tail, whoso lives buzzards wou
consider infringement upon their righ
Fifth?Lands which have been drain
of their forest to sustain fences, and ii
poverished by constant cultivation, w
regain their primeval timber, and l'orti
ty of soil.
Sixth?Crops will bo blessed with b
tor and inoro regular seasons, if tho wiu
places are covered with original grow
as experience and philosophy prove tl
rains are iulluenced more or less by v<
etable matter.
Seventh?South Carolina is tho or
State in the Union in which there is
coal?hence lior imporitivo duty to p
servo her forest.
Many other reasons might be assign
in favor of the "fence law," but we f
?
" bear to cncroach longer upon yonr patience.
Hoping you will continue to agitate
these questions with your able pen,
jrS and thus sustain the laurels already won
?jr wo would say, "Lay on McDufl'and"
]s You will hoar from us apain. 1

,y Objections .o the Tencc Law Re- ir
of moved,
i- lj
. 1Cdilor Press and Banner : vi
(l^ I promised, with your permission, to
continue uie uiscussion 01 uiu icnce iiiw ~
' and to answer the objection urged against U
its adoption. In my last communication m
I assumed no position which was not cor- \
roborated by universal experience and
II observation, viz: that the stock have p?
vastly decreased in numbers, that the
fencing is much below tho requirements
|[ of the law, utterly insufficient for the pro- _
. tection of the tields, and cannot be rebuilt
without a cost ruinously disproportionate T
; to the value of the stock to be guarded
10 against?tho exposure of the fields and
j consequent abuse or destruction of stock. ^
4 On the other hand, the opponents of the J
" measure are left to conjectures and mere (,j
!tj assumptions as tiie basis of their argu- '
merit. They contend that it \\M11 operate ,
10 as a hardship against the poor, and den
prive them of the privilege of keeping j
** stock. In answer .to this assumption 1 .*
j" reply that tlic law itself provides pastur- j
" ago "for tlie laborer on tlio plantation he ?.
wr works. If there was no such provision .
? in tho act, I can, with mucli forse, assume *
^ that the laborers would be masters of the
0 situation by making the privilege of
ie pasturage a condition in all contracts for
c labor, and by refusing to hiro to any who
would refuse such a privilege. So far
from their being any dilliculty in this
? particular it would be to tho interest of .
y every employer, not only to provide such hl
nastift-age, but that his laborers, who r,
51 have none, should have stock on which ki
,r to subsist and save the heavy expense of '?>
dieting on Western bacon and bread
!S alone. It must be remembered also that of
i- ? i ? ?< * iw? ~
. ci llUiUUl'l vx IUU UUUI UftYU tn
l1, stock. They expericnco the same diffi- rt
,r cult}'in protecting tlicir crop against the N1
depredations of stock, and are not able to
,e provide the fencing necessary to guard gt
11 against it. Tho small land owner who ?
" has no land to spare, can easily arrango "I
, with his neighbor, by assisting him in U
" the preparation of a common pasture. 1 (
There arc other captious objections to the ar
8 new system which are scarcely worth the Si
e mention, viz: that it will bring about a th
y conllict between labor and capital?that it ?
[" will produce a division in the Democratic "I
ir ranks. I confess my inability to see how -A
? either of these objections can'apply to the W
.* subject. They are urged merely for the M
I purpose of alarm. Tho new system pro- ac
" posed is really in the interest of both la- ^
" hor and capital, and as for disall'ecting
e any Democrat, if there should be-such, he
j? should be noted as one seeking an excuse
' to betray his country's best interest.
? Others are in doubt as to tho propriety of ce
II this measure, thinking that they would
9 lose the benefit of pasturing their grain i0
. nouis alter narvest. mis is not so j no
18 fencing need be removed if not desired. _
e Every man can kecjj up as much fence as
e he chooses. All the advocates of the new j.!<
e, law desire, is to repeal that portion of the 1a
ir existing law which provides that "every A:
^ man shall be compelled to enclose his cul- V
! tivated fields by a lawful fence." It is *
a not proposed to impose one iota of additional
expense upon any one, but sitnply *J<
'r to require each man to keep his stock on
? his neighbor. Isn't that fair? Is less ?,<
than that just or right ? L(
