Froa th Farmer. "...
; ; Herding Cattle.
WTe publish an article in this number
of. the Fanner, on herding cattle in Illi
nois. Would it, not be .well for some of
the farmers of Nebraska to consider this
subject this wiuier, and if they think it
will pay, try jho. experiment, .next sum
mer. There is not enough timber in
tome portions of Nebraska to feuce the
land ; yet if it was not for stock, fences
would not be needed. It has been argue I
ly many that it would co far less to
fence up stock than to fence gra.'n field?.
In some parts of Europe you may travel
for days through open fields and gardens,
without having to cross a fence ; horses,
cattle, iheep and hogs all; being either
fenced up in fields from which they
could not break, or eUe kept in pens.
Here, in Nebtaska, farming would be
comparatively cheap if the expense of
fencing was dispensed with. Farmers
that have large numbers of stock could
hire tbtni herded for about one dollar
per head, they, could keep their hogs in
pens or fields made on purpose ; (hogs
deriv'e but very little benefit from run
ning at large oh the prairie ;) aud their
milch cows could be enclosed in small
lots. In this Ray fencing for corn and
wheat fields could all be dispensed with.
Of course all thought of doing without
fencing grain telds would be nonsense in
any neighborhood as long as any animal
was allowed to run at Jarge.
We are aware that many,' perhaps a
majority of farmers are opposed to herd
ihg their stock. We doubt whether an
eutire coinrnunity can be found anywhere
in Nebraska in favor of it.. Yet there
are many of the best informed citizens
who are in favor of it. We 'make these
suggestions fn'r the purpose of elicitin
discussion on the subject. It, is argued
by those who favor the project that if it
was only once thoroughly tried, it would
b' found so economical that nobody would
afterwards oppoe it. . T. (

A correspondent of the St. Louis Dem
ocrat gives Brig. Thayer the following
well deserved notice. Messrs. Blacker
and Whitton, of Nebraska City, are also
spoken of in terms of praise:
"The sally upon the enemy's works at
V lcksburg was one of the most brilliant
exploits of the present war. For a long
lime icksburg hat stood as one of the
sroiiit bulwarks of Rebeldo"i. The
best artillery and the moVf s-killful artil
lerists i in the world are there, whiLt
plenty of infantry -lie wahin supporting
d. stance of th already well appointed
garrison.. Without knowing anything- of
the strength at Vicksbuig whether
Grant was threatening the enemy in
Missisnppi, behind Vicksburg or not j the
attack was made. Our trucps fou 'ht
witn neroic oravery. . ,
It U not unfit that the brave men that
led this brilliant sally should have a place
in the current history of the war. I
propose in this connection to give you a
short sketch of Bri. Gen. John M.
Thayer, the most prominent of tlnsewlio
led the gallant storming party into the
enemy s works at Chickasav B ulls.
General , Thayer was born in Massa
thusetts, near Boston. 'He went from
bis naliye State to the Far, West, and
Settled in the Territory of Nebraska,
when it was being opened for shi lenient
Soon after he'seuled in. Nebraska, he
was tendered and accept the position of
Major-Genral of the n lima force of the
Tt-rriti ry. He at once set about: to: or
ganize the militia of the Territory, and
procure the necessary legislation to its
organization. In the summer of 1859
there was an outbreak among ihe InJi
dians,' and the Pawnee tribe became
warlike and troublesome. The settlers
were obliged to leave the interior and fly
to the river town for sa ety. General
Thayer organ z-d his forces, compoel
of about two hundred men and one , piece
ot artillery, aud inarched upon the Indi
ans. The result was that 'he whole
tribe was captured, aud piece anl quiet
vvere.restortd io the border. :
At the commencement of the present
war ne tyas appoin-d Uolonel of the 1st
Nebraska Retiimeut, which has diitin-
iuished itself upon the batile.fie!dj i f
LLuuUn' aad Shilo. It js owin to
idficient mahaeinent that the regiment
enjys the high reputation it does. Upon
the organization of the reiiiment he ap-
plied . immediately for actiwe service.
He was ordered to Fort Leavenworth.
where. .his regiment , was armed and
equipped. Since that time its history is
well known. '
At D neJson. Gsn. Thayer commanded
a brigade, composed of eight regun -nts
of infantry and one battery. ' II- re
lieved Gen. MiClernand atatri'ical pe
riod, and repulsed the last sally of' the
en-ray at Dohelso.'
At shilo he also commanded a brigade
arid became, in the changing fortunes of
that ,'well fought battle-field, the com
mander of tqe extreme right. It wits at
this time he defeated a flank movement
of tb? enemy, which, if successful, would
hav$ .produoek disaster to our arm. '
Genl Thayer was appointed a Briga
dier by ihe President fur "distinguished
services," after the adjournment of the
last Congress. He now commands a
brigade in the expedition affhinst Virks-
burg,' and distinguished himself in lead
ing his brigade into the enemy's works.
Such an officer should at one be given a
better command. At Donelson and Shi-
loh he showed himself competent to han-
dre a divisionand these bright evidences
of his worth and ability are sufficient
guarantees that he would serve his coun
try, more advantageoujly with a larger
command. He , is wprjhy cf c Major ,

New Yobk, Jan 23. A letter in the
Herald states that Acting Master Par
tridge, of the gunboat Hatterass, who
was ordered to board the Saratoga steam
er ofT Galvesmn, ssays, that he had not
shoved off the ship's length before the
Alabama poured .in her first broadside,
which was immediately replied to by the
Hatteras. This occurred just at dark.
As the first broadside was exchanged both
vessels steamed ahead, ide by side, ex
changing broadsides a fast as the guns
could be loaded and fired, and within a
short distance of -ach other. .Partridge
was pulling ahead all the time, and en
deavoring to reach his vessel, but did nut
succeed. He says the cannonading last
ed thirty minutes, when he heard the
sound of musketry, and by dim ol hard
pulling he came again in sisrht of the
vessels and found them stopp d, with the
Alahama alongside and the Hat'eras
blowing off steam. He had heard cheers
from the Alabama, proving that the
Hatters had been captured by boarding.
Deeming it best not to be taken prisoner
he returned m the direction of the squad
ron aud was picked up.

The productions of this distinguished authoress
need no eulogy. Public opinion has lonainee pro
ooonced them superior to any ot- er novelettespub
lished on this side of the Atlantic ; and the true
test of their merit isfnnd in tbe fact that they are
eagetly reoroduccd, after their publication in the
Mercury, by the English press. We may add t la t
the new tale, Victoria," is fullv eqnal in interest
and tleth of plot to either of those which uave se
