Ms. Editor : At the fanners eeem to be peaking out, through your paper, to the present Legislature in regard to their interest, I have concluded to make a state ment of a tew facts and figures in regard to the fence question, or rather the No Fence Question.

Back ninety years on History's page And when the Nation's Ufa was young ; When men there were both brave and sage, Whose deeds and names have since been sung ; Men of a stamp whose honor stands In oonlrast to the custom now ; Men of pure hearts and stainless hands, With truth impressed upon each brow ; One sacred nsme and ai I the rest, On tented Field, 'mid battle's brunt, Where 'ere the serried squadrons pressed, His victor helm was st the Front, From Halls of State, sedate and wise, la after daya when peace was won H is fame ascended to the skies, - And Heaven had claimed her Washington. His dust now lies beneath the mound Thst rises by Potomac's shore, Too lately shaken by the sound Of deadly strife and cannon, But could thai dust have risen then. And have resumed living firm, To marshal into ranks the men Whose peerless valor lr..v,,i the siorai ; We should not he whm now we nr . We would noi see w.i it w 'e seen ; But risen from success! nl w ir, Virginia' fields wouUI nil he grim. Yifgiaia's sons again may shake Her grand old banner to the breeze; 4fe Semper, yet 'again may wake Wild echoes over Southern leas. Toil, toll the hell. As tbe boats pass by ; Toll, toll the bell, For the soul on high. Each southern heart, at the solemn sound, Its homage yields to the aainted dead ; While mournful memories cluster round 8he shows where southern blood was ahed : And spirit of the good and brave, '7 ho died defending "sacred right," I Keep silent watch around hia grave. And shadowy forms, by day ami night, fair haried boys and stalwart men, With tattered garb and hungry eyes, ill march by hill and glade and glen And gather there in wild surprise, I'bey guard tbe grave, they wait the hour, Their sons and kinsmen to inspire. rben once spun, in steadfast power, The southern heart shall throb with fire. leucine in the State And now, Mr Editor, in view of these facts and figures, what we want is a law that will save as from this burdensome tax. I do not propose Pi sav what this law shall be, 1 take it that our Legislators are capable of forming a law without tin "soft soap" proviso And these are not only my own individual opinions, but they are also those of sora of tin oldes planters iii the county who have large stocks and an abuudance of limber for the purpose of fencing in their plantations and whose opinions ate entitled to consideration. It is said that in Germany there are no ' fences. cultural R. N. Craves has his good shares of con solidated laid away, and a slice of California-of unknown dimension the profits on both of which would to-day net him over $200,000. Gen. Tom Williams, of Nevada Sharon Democratic opponent for the Senate has made over $2,000, 000, so that when the next political fight comes off the general will be about as well "qualified" for tbe Senate as any body. The amount nf money made by the great firm of Flood & O'Brien during the last six mouths must be unparal leled. It is understood that there are four part tieis in the firm; J. C. Flood and W. 8. O'Brien, in tins city, John Mackay and James G. Fair, in Virginia City. They uwn a coin rolling interest in each of the mines mentioued say 60,000 shares of each t 'nneolidaied Virginia sold yesterday after I he board at $400 per share, and California at $360. If the number of shares credited io the firm is correct, tit' v are wmtb. in these two mines alone, $45,600 000, or a i title over eleven million dollars apiece. In the midst of their vast "flood" of wealth these gentlemru have not been unmindful of l heir poor friends, and there are scorea nf men and omen, too, in San Francisco who have beeu suddenly lifted out of poverty s iron grip by a timely bint from Flood fc O'Brien. Many people have made money who are not known on the Course. Tlmy be long to that class who "never touch stocks, sir !" who -end in their orders in a round a It. nit way, pretty much as tbe late ec centric W B. Bourn used to do, "to cover up his tracks," and who quie;ly bank their profits, button up their crats, and turn up their noses when tbey pass Calilornia street.

Apropos of what has been said in an other paragraph in regard tn tbe legumi nous plants as nitrogenous fertilisers, we find it stated that Dr Voelcker, by a ser ies of the most exhaustive analyses of the soils and of plants, has discovered and established tbe fact, that an immense amount of nitrogenous food accumulates in the soil during the growth of clover, especially in the surface soil ; amounting. including that in lhe clover roots and lops, to three and a ball tons of nitrogen per acre ; equal to four tons and a third ot ammouia.
