Correspondence, l VALUE OF SWEET BRIAR. (To the Editor of the ' 'Argu».') % Sir, — In your issue of the Gth lust M appears an extract from the 'S. M. Herald,' submitted by Mr. W. Glasson, | with regard to the 'sweet briar' as a % sheep fodder. In support of Mr. Glas- ,J son's argument I would state that too i much importance cannot be attached to ^ this question. We have, at present, , 5 about three -hundred sheep living en tirely upon about twenty ~ acres of briars; there' being not a vostlge o£ ^ grass upon any portion of tho laud.
