Monday last we hitched up f or a ride through the country. We passed the farm of Colonel Fenn, of Bridgewater. The berry erop has been very fine, tlie vines are thrifty and the ground well cuitivated. The fruit trees are well loaded with fruit. The coru fields we passed are looking fine. The locality about Manchester was favored with a nice rain a few weeks ago which greatly iruproved the corn and potato erop. We dined at Manchester. The business men seemed rejoiced over the iruproved condition of the farms. Omjourney throngh Sharou and Freedom was a fiue trip. Fred SVilliams had as fine a field of corn as any we saw. The farm of C. M. Fellows is looking well. Mr. Wacker, the present renter, is a ?ood farmer; he out 37 large loads of Say from the last year's seeding, aud the meadows show a good growtfa of clover now. His 33 acres of corn shows the'effect of good tillage and good soil. About one thousand bushels of whear and rye are threshed ; oats not yet drawn. Albert Dresselhouse and his brother Lambert have exceediugly fine young orchards. If the prices of fruit should be maintained for a few years the boys will have a competency for old age. David G. Rose and John J j son, old time residents of Sharon, are joth on the sick list. It is doubtful if j Mr. Rose will ever get well. We did i not talk poltics much, but heard the espressions that we could use muoh more silver if we had it, and if all the silver ïiined in this country was coined at our mints it wonld give more eruployrueut ;o labor and more mouey to the producer. More anon.
