The fillawing tnitmeratiun of the bene­ fits of good fences, is from Dickinson's Ad­ dress, from which we have heretofore made extracts: .. They save time. Th e husbandman, who is obliged to leave his team or his ta­ bor, and travel to a distant field, to drive out intruding cattle, loses much valuable time, which he knows not how to spare. 2 Gnad fences protect and secure crops, tho fruit and just reward of tail and care ; mid prevent the pain of seeing them eare- fessfy waited or destroyed ; and in this way lighten care, and sweeten the hours of rest. 3. Good fences prevent unkind feelings among neighbors; and not unfrequently, vexations and expensive lawsuits—the evils of which are sometimes teen, and felt t by the nrxt Reneration. 4. Good fences arc an ornament to a farm. An extended plain—an unbroken view of a lake, or an ocean, pruduces painful sensa­ tions; while a landscape, interspersed with bill*, and meadows, and forests, mid cleared fields, excitvs lively emotions- Sach is the pleasure arising from the view of a neatly fa tceli fencedfnrm ; associated, as it a/ways will be, with considerations of security and profit—and tho certainty of finding every ox, and bono, and cow, in his own pssture.
